Breakfast Topic: 'Every female WoW player has healed at least once' {WoW}

Mar 12th 2012 12:58PM Yes, I healed for a bit - Starting in ZA in BC and through Naxx in Wrath. Not because I wanted to - because my guild needed a healer and I was the only class who could do it (druid). As soon as we switched to 25-mans I went back to DPS. My current offspec is feral tank, and when I do 5 mans/heroics, I tank. I have a mage, enh shaman, and lock as my alts. No healers in there at all.


My guild currently has 5 core raiders who are female:
DPS lock
DPS moonkin
DPS hunter
DPS feral
Resto shaman

Of the four dps, I don't think any of them even have healing alts. The feral cat heals sometimes, but she doesn't like it either.

You might as well just say "every player has healed at least once."

Breakfast Topic: What are your WoW pet peeves? {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 4:24PM This may sound horrible and I may be downvoted, but hey, just being honest here.

When you get put in a LFD group with someone who doesn’t speak your language.

I’m not saying everyone should speak English. And I understand that there aren’t as many non-English servers as there are English servers, and that the non-English servers sometimes have to be in English battlegroups so they don’t have really long queue times for dungeons. I’m not saying there’s a better solution, I’m just complaining.

For example, the other day I was grouped with a Portugese player. He had queued as dps and tank and was given the tank roll, but was pulling all the groups as a caster and just casting starfire (this was a lvl 40 dungeon). We tried to play as long as possible without a real tank, but eventually wiped over and over to a certain boss. We couldn’t vote kick the guy, since apparently some other people had been kicked from the group before I joined. After 20-30 minutes of emotes, pointing, and failed Google translations (and then 20 mins or so of wiping), one of the dps finally left and was replaced by a hunter with a bear pet, and we were finally able to /point Tank then /point Hunter Bear Pet, and he got it, went bear form, and finished the dungeon.

I will say it was a nice sense of accomplishment to overcome language barriers, but honestly that run took substantially longer than it should have and we were all pretty frustrated by the end of it. And as annoying as it was for us, it was probably a lot worse for him, as he could clearly tell that we were not pleased with him, but he didn’t know why.

I know Blizz is doing its best with a non-ideal situation. I can’t think of any better way to do it, but that’s one of my current pet peeves.

The Queue: DMF {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 3:57PM Not to be a Debbie Downer, but Locks of Love is not a great organization. They sell most of the hair they get. They've received as much as 10,000 wigs worth of hair in a year, but only made 113 wigs, and sold the rest (see their Wikipedia page). Wikipedia claims they made almost $2 million one year from sales of hair, and this money did not go to their charity.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths is a more reputable hair donation company (I think). There have been no reports of them selling hair and making a profit.

You can also do what I did, which is sell your hair online, and then donate the money to a cancer charity of your choice.

Shifting Perspectives: On the matter of Moonkin Form {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 1:01PM I may be the only one on earth, but I love moonkin form. I would be devastated if they changed it to a CD like tree of life or Metamorphosis. The only way I would consider reskinning acceptable would be if we could have a glyph that put it the way it was.

(I can hear the rage already).

Breakfast Topic: World of Prankcraft {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 12:33PM The first time I ever went into MC (we were 70 at the time, never did it at the correct level) I was with a group of senior guild members in a guild I had just joined - so I was the nooblet. We got to the end and it turned out no-one was attuned to summon the last boss. We were on the way out when one of my guild-mates told me that at least I could see Rag if I wanted - he pointed to a cleft in the cliff with some lava behind it. He said he'd bubble me and if I jumped in I'd be able to see Rag. Everyone jumped on the wagon and said I should see him because his model was cool, and they felt bad that we weren't able to kill him because I'd never seen the fight before.

So I climbed into the cleft, all excited to see the boss, and died in the fire. :P Guildmates all promptly ported home, knowing that I had been led in to the instance and had NO idea how to find the portal to get my body back. I ran around helplessly while they gave me terrible advice in guild chat as to how to get back into the portal (swim to the bottom of the lava in the main room, talk to the ghost dwarf to get ported back in, etc etc). Despite being played false over and over, I tried everything they suggested to no avail. Eventually I gave up, took the res sickness (which was hard in and of itself because this was back before you could click the “return to spirit healer” button).

The next day I got an in-game mail from everyone who had been in the group, with gold for my repair bill. :) I was such a noob back then!

The Queue: In which Diablo is questioned {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 12:58PM @Marshall: http://hipstermoonkin.blogspot.com/2011/06/blog-post_21.html Moonkins have heard of irony, but it's pretty underground so it could be others have not heard of it. :D

@everyone else who pointed out the cub and the lashling: Thanks! I knew about those but since they came FROM the bag, the phrase "bag and pet" made me think there was some other, super awesome rare pet (flaming cenarion hatchling? tiny firehawk hatchling? mini charhound?) that I could farm as well. Oh well!

Shifting Perspectives: Balance druid gearing from Firelands {WoW}

Jul 8th 2011 11:26AM I think the OP's concern (I've thought of this as well) is that if you end up having spirit on every piece (which I think is possible, without too much difficulty), you'll end up being over hit capped even if you reforge everything you can- I vaguely recall someone had put together a mockup of such a set of gear.
