Spiritual Guidance: Thirteen dos and don'ts of a raiding holy priest {WoW}

Apr 20th 2008 7:27PM After raiding SSC for a while I find it works best if priests Mind Control and other classes do the healing, just my 2 cents.

DKP in WoW, more common than you think! {WoW}

Apr 14th 2008 10:03AM By the same reasoning isn't gold just a dkp system?

Breakfast Topic: Consumables: Buy, gather, or make? {WoW}

Feb 19th 2008 8:11AM I tend to be the one doing the price gouging, 700g in an hour usually if i put stuff on before 7pm server time on wednesdays.

Spiritual Guidance: Holyform and lesser Holy talents {WoW}

Feb 18th 2008 8:52AM This is dire news for priests.

The fact that this is an NPC spell seems a pretty definate sign that now the name has been used it will not be put into the game anywhere esle.

Personally I think holy form is a great idea, even if it is just +5% healing +5% in battle mana regen.

Even worse in the upcoming patch there will be yet another PoP tailoring item, are blizzard trying to force all holy priests to become tailors???

CoH has been a stple spell of mine in 5mans since I leveled my priest ahlfway through outlands. I use it a little less in raids due to poor grouping more than lack of usefulness..

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: What comes next {WoW}

Jan 21st 2008 5:08AM Could not agree less about this post.

Breakfast Topic: Defecting from the Horde {WoW}

Jan 18th 2008 11:14AM Erm,

Despite all the comments the horde has a much greater number of under 18s on both EU and US servers.

Breakfast Topic: Attunement, hassle or not a big deal? {WoW}

Jan 14th 2008 11:25AM Attunement is a great thing.

Even when in a PuG there are many occasions when I have helped people get their key fragment and just cant help but think "Should I really be helping this guy f**k up a Kara raid?

I would class most of Kara as easier than heroics, at least some Kara loot will help you on that score. But I definately think that once you are ready regular runnings of heroics should be a guild requirement to keep people in shape. It is all too easy to start slacking in Kara.

Attunement Will always be in my eyes a good thing. Sure a couple of months after the next big expansion is released drop the attunement, it will just be a pain then. But before then there needs to be some kind of process that keeps low geared and poorly played characters out. Personally I think BM is a good stepping stone for that.

I still remember one of the first times I went into Kara. A rogue called me a nub for not knowing the instance. He then called me a NUB for not healing after he pulled agro from the boss twice. He also constantly pulled on trash, other bosses and so forth. Unfortunately there are many players who simply should not be in raids untill they have hit a few more instances. And PvP epics are rarely any good for raiding, though there are a few exception.



Harsher penalties for AV AFKers {WoW}

Jan 14th 2008 7:50AM This is fantastic news.

Talking about making people want to play is not going to stop the people who just there doing nothing, or the people who pay for honour.

The great thig about the current system is that reporting poeple who are doing PvE objectives or even capping a bunker will not have a huge adverse effect (You just have to attack somehing to get out of the buff)

It will be the people who get reported in most battlegrounds that will get their epics removed and their honour.

I cant wait to see the honour buying noobs running around shouting their account has been hacked, kudos to blizz for implementing this retrospectively to really teach people a lesson for afk'ing.

More Alterac Valley changes on the horizon {WoW}

Jan 8th 2008 6:50AM Get reported for afking once a day, get the debuff, twice get kicked and 100 honour deduction (Not hard to regain if its a genuine player. Get reported 3 times a day get 2 hour bg debuff and 2k honour deduction, 4 times a day banned for 3 hours and 5k point deduction, 5 times a day = 48 hour ban from bg and 20k honour deduction.

The problem with the current afk system is not that people are not getting caught, its that no punishment is being rolled out.

The only plausable way to pick up on AFKers is to pick on their weakness, they do it repetitively. So you have to target this and punish it.
