The Light and How to Swing It: First look at protection in Mists beta {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 6:03PM I laughed really hard at the thought of Glyph of Tebow. Thanks for that.

Mar 28th 2012 8:59PM Thanks for the additional info! I'm guessing you're in the beta?

The Light and How to Swing It: Mists beta retribution roundup {WoW}

Mar 28th 2012 8:58PM Noooooo!

I was going to mention it as an example of one of the many cosmetic glyphs we're seeing, but I think I axed it when I realized I had too many examples. I have clearly failed all of you.

Mar 14th 2012 11:50PM This column is biweekly, unfortunately, so I'll have to miss out on all of the post-press week news. However, unless something super spectacular comes up before my next column is set to air, I promise I'll do a MoP talent / press week wrap up type of post. Sound good?

The Light and How to Swing It: 4 ways to start retadin combat off with a bang {WoW}

Mar 9th 2012 6:21PM Hitting AW and Zeal together has been pretty much standard practice for the entire expansion. We took a short detour during T12 when we got our four-piece and Zealotry suddenly lasted 15 more seconds, but the "best" way to use them still involved overlapping them. Simply, the math has always supported using them at the same time.

I'm not going to tell you how you should play your ret paladin. If you think your way works better than the way everyone else does it, then that's just, like, your opinion, man.

But seriously, do what works and play how you want. It's a game, enjoy it!

Mar 1st 2012 9:57AM I love seeing thoughtful discussion in the comments on my articles... even if you disagree with me. :P

Keep it up!

To address your point, Ilmyrn, you could be absolutely right about the ability order including GoAK. Truth be told, I'm a bit overly protective of my banana man and don't like to advocate using him right off the bay. Of course, there are many situations where this is not only fine, but optimal.

Feb 29th 2012 7:33PM Seal of Truth is the one you're thinking of, and though I'm not sure what you mean by "without having to do it manually", here is one I use:

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:shift] Seal of Righteousness; Seal of Truth

Just throw that on your bars and voila!

The Light and How to Swing It: The Fall of Deathwing, ret edition, part 2 {WoW}

Feb 1st 2012 6:07PM Wise, this thontor is.

Knowing how fast your group can burn that limb down is pretty important, too. You wouldn't want to wait to hit your cooldowns until you know Cataclysm is casting if your group will easily finish the limb off 10 seconds later.

Jan 18th 2012 6:13PM You... you win. I laughed quite heartily at this comment.

Take tomorrow off of work, and if anyone asks, tell them a person from the Internet said you could. Trust me, it will work.
