Jun 22nd 2011 5:26PM Q for the Q: With 4.2 reintroducing Rag, will he still be in Molten Core so he can continue to not drop his eye?

May 22nd 2011 11:33AM Oh noes! They aren't going to let you missle on moving... I guess you'll have to just keep writing new and exciting articles on the other in-depth aspects of your one button rotation

Dec 2nd 2009 7:28PM Lol, that rejection thread was amazing. This just shows, that just because someone can fill out an app nicely, it doesn't translate into them being a good selection.

Shifting Perspectives: The disappearance of the bear, part 3 {WoW}

Oct 21st 2009 12:01PM Feral is a very strong dps build right now. Boomkin is not nearly as competitive and falls somewhere in the range of shadowpriests.. It's all about the raid utility of a boomkin sadly. If we couldn't bring 3% hit and crit for casters, along w/ innervate (what if I want to use it on me for a change?!?) and Brez/ GotW... well, I'm not sure we'd even be invited to most raids...

Not sure? Top guild Ensidia DOESN'T even use a boomkin.. lol

Shifting Perspectives: The disappearance of the bear, part 3 {WoW}

Oct 21st 2009 11:56AM This article is my new favorite. I was a MT for my guild in BC.. and when WotLk came around I tried it early and found bear tanking to be unacceptable for most heroics (lack of GOOD AoE threat at that time). I switched to Boom and never looked back. Sitting in one of our server's top raiding guilds now w/ boom/Tank dual-specs and running into the gearing issues you mentioned.
Every week I'm seeing plate tank gear going to some new initiate or guy who wants to try tanking, as off-spec roll, while if I was main feral spec'd I'd still be bidding top dkp amounts in trying to compete with rogues/feral cats for gear and hunters/pallies/etc for the sticks.. Meanwhile leather caster gear is at the point where you are practically begged to take it since there's so few that can use/still need it.
I have a feeling that when Cata comes out (with the removal of Def as stat) that we're going to see some of the plate wearing tank classes have this same kind of problem. My hope is that Blizz sees this too and works on something better for ALL tanks, not just the plate wearers.

Encrypted Text: Rogue loot guide to patch 3.2.2 {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2009 4:21PM Why has nobody mentioned the new dagger from H ToC? Did they simply choose not to add this item into the patch like I thought there were supposed to?

Exodus punished for exploiting Yogg-Saron encounter {WoW}

Jun 30th 2009 11:48AM Why is it that any mages that did a spellsteal exploit in naxx received a ban and deserved it, but when Ensidia does a spellsteal exploit there's not only no bans (or slaps on the wrist even), but they get a pat on the back.

Shifting Perspectives: The dual-specced Druid {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 11:31AM Have kept a boom and tank/feral sets since bc, nice to be able to switch em out as needed now. As far as eclipse Cyrus.. .I only put 1 point into it as I don't find it to be a big dps boost (or at least enough to warrant 3/3 and the spam rotation it takes to make it work)... I find that keeping up the IS/Mf and SF till it hits does more consistent dps than the other rotation to make eclipse work. That said, when the 1/3 procs I spam it like a rockstar..
