Crowd control basics by class {WoW}

Jan 8th 2012 5:30AM As a note to everyone, the rangers only disengage if you single target them. Let them get bashed by cleaves and all is well. Just kill em last, and they should already be dead to be honest...

Breakfast Topic: Are you a WoW cross-dresser? {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 9:48AM P.S. As my name states, I'm a guy....

And Olivia, You seem to have posted loads of stuff about WoW and gender recently, very interesting :)

Breakfast Topic: Are you a WoW cross-dresser? {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 9:43AM I play most characters dependent purely upon aesthetics. Human males look like some backwoods hillbilly mass murderer, however I needed a human for the PvP escape on my paladin. So I played a female. My gnome rogue wanted the shortblade spec for gnomes, but female gnomes look like midget-pornstars, so that was out too, so that gnome is male. Similar story on my gnome dk, I prefer using swords, and yet again that 3 extra expertise is nice. Plus a tiny gnome deathknight is cute in a scary way. Gender really doesnt come into it, just with the current state of WoW character models, which looks least rubbishy :D

Maybe come MoP with the (possible) new models, Ill get gender/race changes for some, as again these change to be better/worse looking. I think when this (probably) happens, everyone should be given race/gender changes etc, to account for the pure aesthetics of it.

Also, as an aside, whats the column where you post screenshots? I have an epic one of me and my friends on gnomes, one in a set based on the dk starter gear and one in T2 priest gear, it looks great :)

Breakfast Topic: What's behind stereotypes about what ladies play in WoW? {WoW}

Dec 26th 2011 10:06AM Im a guy, a rugby player and generally quite full on in real life. I play 4 healers at 85, and not much else, maybe a bit of protadin tanking. Im assuming that this makes me a girl? :D

In a serious note, I think people in WoW can be split into two crowds, the escapists, and the fantasists. As a general rule, escapists will want to play a role in game more opposed to their real life situation, and fantasists will want to morph their existing world and persona into a more exciting one. I think this explains the divides within roles more accurately than just male vs female.

I do know plenty of female tanks, and even a few female dps (though these seem to be rarer to be honest). I think in reality, female players get a fair bit of stick, and as such tend to be better players on average. Most of the proper facerollers and mouthbreathers are guys, you know this to be true. That rogue doing 8k on ultraxion, hes a guy.

TL;DR: Divides within game roles are down to indavidual psychology, not sex :P

Your first Battlegrounds as a PvP healer {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 8:03AM Lol, to be honest we're just not struggling with rogues, probably just due to stacks of armor on both classes. Your right about the warlock thing, we used to have a warlock for our threes specifically for CCing mages/feral kitties since theyre the only classes we struggle on. Unfortunately, he quit wow, and now were left as a frost dk and a hpala, which basically has no CC :(

Your first Battlegrounds as a PvP healer {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 4:26AM Also I agree with Kevyne. Mages suck, always will suck, and as such should be banned from PvP (and possibly PvE) posthaste. I am relegating them to their correct job of making me mana drinks and portalling me from place to place :)


(Me and my DK 2's partner have some major issues with dual frost mage teams..)

Your first Battlegrounds as a PvP healer {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 4:22AM Speaking as a paladin with engineering thats not the strategy at all. Its hand of freedom, divine protection for the speed boost, boots for more speed boost, then find a ledge to jump off and parachute maintaining that awesome speed for longer and screaming "EAAAAAGLLE!" while you float halfway across WSG with the enemy flag.

The fun.

The other major fun is rolling around in 37k of armour and just watching a rogue look at you, look at the tree druid, and run for the tree druid. Poor squishy bastards.
