Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 3:39PM To be honest, the concept of relying on bonding in a game while the marriage is in a bad state boggles my mind. I can understand if that is just one of the activities a couple might sometimes do together, but it does not provide (IMO) a good enough focus, since your mind is often distracted by things happening in the game - especially if you are raiding, and even more so in any decent progression guild.

If he is playing a few night a week, they have more than enough time to spend together doing other things. If he plays 6,7 night a week, I am sorry but her playing that same amount will not help them AT ALL in their marriage, and their problems are much deeper to be solved by distractions of WoW of that magnitude.

While he is raiding, she should find something to do that truly fulfills her, instead of clinging to his hobby and him as a way to feel meaningful. The fact she says "SW seems empty" without him just sounds so needy, and it puts pressure on him to always be there and basically overturn his way of playing the game just to please her. Yes, in marriage you should work on togetherness and sharing, but that doesnt mean that your spouse should invade and change the things you like.

People should not be so fast to call the husband a jerk or an asshole, when we only see her point of view. Maybe, just maybe, she did not share the whole story (or is blind to it) and sees herself as the victim, but do not present the annoying things she did that might have driven him away from the way she plays the game.

And absolutely agree, when my guild gets even two friends applying together, let alone a couple or married people, they are under much higher scrutiny, because in raids you want individuals not cliques, and especially not couples that might blow over non-game related sh!t.

Shifting Perspectives: Symbiosis speculation {WoW}

Nov 27th 2011 8:19PM One thing I am hoping for most is that Symb wont be a constant ping-pong of unsolvable balance issues.

I will welcome all utility swaps - creative use of utility is exciting.
If we do get swapping dps abilities, I am assuming they wont go overboard (which would bring us to my first point), but be more, sort of like its better having 2 rogues in the raid instead of just 1.

My main wonder is what happens if you swap with another druid of same specc? :D

Shifting Perspectives: 4 tips for intermediate ferals {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 4:55AM Also, do not forget to keybind B-rez, since you will not want to have to first open your spellbook to find it once you are needed to cast it!
I personally use Vuh-do, since it does not require extra keybinds for rezzes (when mouse-overing the raid frames), and I can also use Tranq in a pinch.

Drama Mamas: WoW vs. relationship {WoW}

Oct 18th 2011 6:34AM Dont give pets/plushies as gifts/bribes - its insulting, unless your girlfriend is 15 years old (which is a whole other bag of issues then).

Any self-respecting woman would much prefer honesty than silly gestures. Talk to her, not to make her your mother and decide for you (again!), but just so she knows you want to do something that cause issues in your relationship a few years ago.

If you have a steady job, and your relationship is ok, she should trust you enough to not make the same mistakes again. Dont make promises you cant keep, and dont make her your guardian, she will resent it, sooner or later. Take responsibility for your own actions, and make decisions that will be good for your life in 5 years time, not 5 minutes.

If you feel you cant control your urge to spend countless hours in the game, and let it influence your real-life in negative ways (lose sleep, lose a job, lose time for friends/lovers, etc), then do not go back to playing at all, and start thinking if there is something you can change inside yourself to be more responsible towards your own self. GL :)

Raid Rx: Healing Majordomo Staghelm {WoW}

Aug 20th 2011 11:53AM you do not need 3 raid cooldowns on Scorpion2 FS #4 - our raid is pretty average in skill (we are 6/7 N) and we survive with 1 of those you mentioned plus MAYBE another if I see a few healers are running out. This is on 25M.

Officers' Quarters: Secret farmers of the Firelands {WoW}

Aug 10th 2011 10:44AM Also, to say that "unlocking the trash" in Firelands is guild's achievement is a totally unbelievable argument... If they went into a fresh instance, there is trash right there, and lots of it. Killing Balreoc's trash isnt much easier than killing the trash at the start. And Domo's trash is even harder.

Officers' Quarters: Secret farmers of the Firelands {WoW}

Aug 10th 2011 10:39AM "We have lots of "do and dont" in the guild [...]"

This right there is a problem. Too many rules cannot cover every imagined situation, no matter how hard you try. Rules infantilize mature people and make non-offending actions into drama-causing rifts. Treating your guild members like they are children by imposing rules that try to control all their actions... I would not be a part of such guild.
