Blood Pact: MoP talent calculator spells out more changes for warlocks {WoW}

Mar 5th 2012 6:57PM You have to keep in mind with demo at least that they aren't so much as redefining demo as actually saying "This is what you are" over "well you can sit in melee, and its better for your DPS, but its not that important".

To put it better, demo has sort of been the melee caster for a while, now with MoP they are saying yes, yes demo is the melee caster.

Blood Pact: Quashing misleading rumors about warlocks {WoW}

Aug 4th 2011 3:54AM If you read my comment i said i agree with x, but disagree with y. I, unlike a lot of people it seems, have the mental capacity to say what i agree with and what i dont, over "omg i hate everything" or "omg tyler i love you marry me".

Aug 1st 2011 4:58PM When in doubt just hit shadow bolt/fel flame. Its more important to be active over getting the right spell.

Blood Pact: Quashing misleading rumors about warlocks {WoW}

Aug 1st 2011 4:53PM Tyler, I'm normally ok with most of your posts, but this one? Many points just stand out and me and yell WRONG.

But at the same time so many aspects are right, burst dps? Yes, yes it does matter. Both in terms of burst dps over 5-10 seconds and burst DPS over the 30 seconds or so alysrazor is grounded.

Multidoting? Always was, and likely always will be a skill, and tbh I have no idea why its suddenly become a new craze now, its always been there and its always been potent. Sometimes for certain classes more so than others. Hell I remember when the only way to beat firefighter (heroic mimiron for those of you not in the loop (ulduar for those of you not in the loop (recusion is cool))) was to have a lot of shadow priests multidoting all 4 sections.

Haste and breakpoints? No. The haste breakpoints are a increase in DPS. However people treat haste as if its only good at those break points. Its not. Its brilliant at all times, but that 1 haste that gets you that breakpoint? Worth a lot. This is less true (I think) for affliction and demo, but VERY true for destruction. I remember seeing some DPS vs haste graphs around a while ago that plotted this out nicely, but I have no idea where they are now.

Play vs gear; So very very true, however so many of us just can't play at that level. I think that this graph, while pertaining to SC2 applies quiet nicely. http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/9512/sc2ym.png

I may just have to do a wow version at some stage.

Opt-out option incoming for recent authenticator security change {WoW}

Jul 27th 2011 6:28PM Rawr.
First of, the difference between something you have authenticator and something you have your PC, your PC doesn't change. Your authenticators code changes every 30 seconds or so. This is important.

A attacker can attack your PC, get its "finger print", read the registry to get the key in there, and that's that. Want to tell me its not possible? Sorry, PoC attacks are out there. How long before those become highly automated attacks?

Your authenticator code? Yeah 60 seconds later its invalid.

Next up. Unless I'm strongly mistaken (possible) wow authenticates your PC 1 of 2 ways.
* Through a registry key
* Through your hardware set up
However, another issue with this is that it has authenticated every PC you've logged in from for the last year or so.

IP has *NOTHING* to do with whether a PC is authenticated or not, other wise you live in a country that doesn't have mass static IPs (like myself) and suddenly I'm authenticated on a thousand other different accounts. Huzzah?

The crux of this comes down to this, the something you have can't be easily duplicated, with virtual machines your PC is very easy to replicate.

And yes, if you haven't done your research (aka 99% of the people responding here) this entire system is reliant on a key in the windows registry (or the apple equivalent). Let that just sink in for a while.

Jul 27th 2011 6:16PM @Iirdan It's not tied to your IP. Go on, try it, switch your PC over from your home connection, say over your phone, or restart your router if you don't have a static IP. It won't ask you for your authenticator code.

Jul 26th 2011 11:27PM If the answer was as simple as "don't share your password" then we wouldn't need authenticators to begin with, would we?

Jul 26th 2011 9:43PM And now everyone is expecting this feature, despite Zarhym VERY clearly only stated they were discussing it.

And you wonder why blizzard avoid posting about what they may be doing or potential dates? Because people like to go treat them like they're set in stone.

Also, what the hell is with your comment system asking for me to confirm my email EVERY time.

Jul 26th 2011 9:39PM Does a PoC hack exploiting this new "security feature" make it less secure? I hear those are pretty cool. I really dislike those "security expects" who like to go around saying everything is fine, not even discussing even the slightest concern that this could be broken.

2 factor authentication has been going for years and years with very very few cases against it. 2 factor authentication has been going for blizzard for a month or 2 and has numerous reports of cases against it as well as some fun PoC's.
