Apr 11th 2008 11:48AM True that. The vast majority of our guild has respecced to LW, but we wouldn't have beat Brutallus without having done so. Simple as that. The 80 +Haste they provide is invaluable.
They may be nerfed in the future, but for now, they provide a HUGE benefit to any guild willing to put in the effort to have their members level LW to set up drum rotations.
Dec 17th 2007 10:47AM For PvE, a lot of what determines your DPS ability comes down to A) The Fight, and B) The skill of the player.
As a Shadow Priest, I get tired of hearing people say that Shadow Priests are only designed for middle-of-the-road DPS. That's a flat-out fallacy. If you're a Shadow Priest, you should be in the top 5 of all damage dealt every raid.
Example: Here's a few of my own WWSes (Anonymous, of course! :)
I'm not exceptionally well geared or anything either. No T6, and around 1350 damage raid buffed or so.
Anyways, yeah, I'm not trying to make this an ePeen thing, but more simply to illustrate the point that well played Shadow Priests can do just as well as any other clothie in terms of DPS. While we have our limitations (Lousy burst DPS, no AoE), for any fight where we can get some sustained damage in, we're hard to beat.
Apr 10th 2007 11:11AM Peter is right. I run a Matrox TripleHead2Go in 3840x1024 resolution, and that's just how screenshots turn out.

Apr 5th 2007 9:35AM Yeah, I've got one of the 'on-the-side' pedal ports, and my whammy bar is fubared.
Kind of half works, but takes around half a second to actually register, and even then it's pretty flaky when I'm pushing down on it. Not impressed at all.
And it's "loose". When I'm not actually holding it, it tends to slowly start to point down at the ground, instead of staying in place.
Feb 2nd 2007 1:20PM Run a bugged COT1 last night. After we took out the last group of trash at the top of the Inn, Taretha was simply GONE. Thrall was standing in the room upstairs where he should be, but talking to him yielded the same response as when you talk to him prior to him investigating the Tarren Mill stables. He wouldn't do anything for us, and with Taretha missing we couldn't start the Epoch Hunter.
Annoying as Hell. Hopefully all these glitches get ironed out.
Oh, and there have been several cases where, when fighting a boss (Notably the Black Hunter in UB), everyone drops out of combat for a couple of seconds and it heals back up to full health. More annoyingness.

TripleHead is definitely my next upgrade. 3 x VX922 LCD's + the TripleHead is going to set me back a little over $1k. Pennies are being saved as we speak :P

Dec 11th 2006 1:40PM The thing that nobody's mentioned thus far is the Arena system. I'm not fully versed in exactly how it's going to work, but it WILL be a ranked system like the BG's used to be, and it'll no doubt reward those SKILLED teams that catass their way to win after win. Quoted from Blizzard's own Arena page:
"One very cool aspect of the Arena System is the introduction of seasons. Each season lasts several months, and at the end of a season, the top ranked teams are rewarded with some truly unique prizes like legendary mounts or other cool items. Members of the top teams will also receive special titles to honor their achievement (highest to lowest):
So, seriously, if they want something to start throwing away their life on again, there you go.
