Shifting Perspectives: Patch 4.2 impressions as a balance druid {WoW}

Jul 1st 2011 10:46PM starfall... scorpions... wipe.

And yes, I am convinced blizzard hates moonkins.

Shifting Perspectives: Why there are moonkin in the world {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2011 10:45PM Tyler, please do explain what you mean by using Fungal Growth to reduce WM damage. I cannot find any indication elsewhere it actually reduces damage, so I am guessing a previous commentor was correct when they suggested that you meant since being used as a slow it would be triggered too early to produce the most damage?

My raid complains when I have to go off-heals, because my moonkin utilities make a lot of our raiding easier. Fungal Growth-talented wild mushrooms and typhoon make Magmaw's adds a cinch to control, and the healers hate when the tank pulls the second group of twilight phase-twisters before my solar beam is off cooldown.

Innervate, glyphed rebirth, and all my other utilities make me so much more important than just another dps in raid. Although usually being second in damage is sweet too. I love being a moonkin. :)

Shifting Perspectives: Tanks, bribes, and player behavior {WoW}

Apr 17th 2011 4:37PM "And I think that this bribery will do more to exacerbate the horrible attitudes of pug tanks and cause resentment amongst DPSers who now not only have to put up with the obnoxious behavior BUT assist in the tank getting an extra bag of goodies." (araquen)

This. ^

This is my prediction about Call To Arms in Random Dungeon Finder. At first:
a) more fail tanks
b) less respect to tanks (and some to healers) because "you're getting your damn satchel, quit your QQing!" and fail dps will be even less likely to follow tank's markings, strategy, etc.

c) because of the disrespect, better tanks will be even more reluctant to que in RDF

d) healers will now bear the brunt. more fail tanks = super-stress trying to keep everyone alive. and because of the likelihood that healers will be the main ones benefitting from CTA at this point, healers will be disrespected and boo-ed. "L2heal, you noob. you're getting that damn satchel!"

e) competent healers will avoid RDF

f) influx of bad off-spec healers because of CTA

g) now that both healers AND tanks are increasingly likely be fail in RDF, competent dps will avoid RDF

h) RDF will be cement their reputation as destined-to-fail, and almost everyone will get their badges through guild runs and trade chat pugs (with or without WTB roles)

at this point, if blizzard decides they want RDF to be more than a barely-existent part of the game, either blizzard will try to force people to do RDF (resulting in bitterness), or will finally realize that realm-option/only RDF and/or attitude/behavior repercussions are the only way to save RDF.
