Dev Watercooler: Mists of Pandaria looting explained {WoW}

Mar 27th 2012 3:17PM @Chetti:

Hate to break it to you... but unless they ninja'd something since I made myself broke to make a pair of World Mender's pants for my priest... there aren't pants on VP Vendors in 4.3.

Again, I could be wrong. I'm at work, so I'm having trouble logging in to verify. A Wowhead search of current VP gear is my only proof that I'm not going crazy.

But anyway. The only pants upgrades for INT mail are either 378s off of Murozond (the Distortion Greaves that don't have spirit), the 397 crafted (Deathscale Leggins - no spirit), or the T13 pants. I couldn't even find random INT/SPIRIT mail epics from DS.

So, um... yeah. Again, unless I'm missing something... he's right that there's no upgrades aside from the token. Cause let me tell you - those crafted pants are expensive as gold turds for an alt.

Granted, he could get the T12 pants, but the new crafted blues might have more INT, even though he's losing out on secondary stats. Don't hold me to that - I'm just making an observation.

Again, blah blah blah, sorry if I'm wrong... I'm going off shear memory and what Wowhead can tell me.

Does the Annual Pass guarantee instant beta access? {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2012 1:12PM I'll be perfectly honest here: I did expect an MoP Beta invite on day one.

Am I upset I didn't get it? No. Was I surprised I didn't get it? Only slightly. But I'm not going to lie to save face.

The wording and the marketing around the Annual Pass did make it so that it could be assumed that folks who purchased the Annual Pass would get three things: a pony, instant access to D3, and instant access to the MoP Beta. This article addresses that, as well as the follow up where Blizzard clarified what they meant.

I was honestly wondering how Blizzard was going to invite a million people all at once. Glad to see they didn't, if only because the servers wouldn't have been able to handle it.

Reader UI of the Week: Saintstryfe's healing UI learns from other worlds {WoW}

Mar 13th 2012 3:23PM @Saint

The easiest way I know how is to use Curse's addon pack upload service. They have instructions on their site... but I'm not sure if it uploads the settings or just the addons you use. I've never actually used it before.


Anyone else got a suggestion?

Mar 13th 2012 3:09PM I really like this setup, and would be very interested in getting a direct copy of those WTF folders.


Does WoW need more minigames? {WoW}

Mar 9th 2012 5:20PM I think this would be a great idea for the WoW-based phone game people keep talking about. I would love it if it would change things in the actual game (as a side note, I'd love to see PvP change things in the actual game as well, but that's another topic), but I realize that it would be a pain to code.

In general, however... I do think WoW needs more minigames. There is so much to do, but a large portion of it requires huge time investment. I love DMF, and if it were more than once a month I'd love it more. I need something that's fun and slightly repetitive to fill in the spots where I've only got fifteen minutes to play that night.

Another side note? So not looking forward to WoW Pokemon. Just saying.

The Queue: Rolling the bones {WoW}

Jan 30th 2012 11:22AM QFtQ:

How does Wow Insider select writers and editors? Do they look for people with prominent blogs that can bring their own audience, or do they look for unique writing voice/style? Does WoW Insider go public with its need for new writers or editors, or is it an inside thing (no pun intended)?

The etiquette of rolling on gear in groups {WoW}

Jan 12th 2012 6:06PM "My final tip is my pet preference and peeve: If someone wins gear -- especially if they beat your roll to win it -- then congratulate them. It's simple good sportmanship."

It is really difficult, as a healer or tank in 5-mans, to congratulate someone that just rolled need against you on spirit or avoidance stat gear, respectively. In fact, I feel that you should only congratulate them if they asked and you relented, or if you greeded. For them to roll against you shows that they care so little about their fellow gamer.

I haven't used LFR yet, but I've heard the priority system helps a lot with that. I really wish there were such a thing for 5-mans... my healers have all gone through phases of low gear (especially bracers and belts in 4.1) because there is so much competition.

Back on topic though, I'm really proud of myself when I can just grit my teeth and finish the instance. If they catch me on a bad day, I'm proud if all I do is type "*sigh*". Congratulating them would be too much, I'm afraid.

Arcane Brilliance: New Year's resolutions for mages {WoW}

Dec 31st 2011 2:54PM I just resolve to play my mage more. I've been busy gearing up a new healer for my raid group, and I feel like I never have time for the pew pew anymore.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: Spectral Kitten loot code from {WoW}

Dec 31st 2011 2:39PM Oh. My. Gawd.


Can I? Please? ^^

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: Saltwater Snapjaw loot code from {WoW}

Dec 28th 2011 7:57PM Of course I have to put myself in the running for this. I even waited until I got home from work, instead of trying to type on the bus from work. I'm so proud of myself.

Also: I think it's against my best interest to type slow at this point. I hope you understand.
