Onyxia: Bugged at 70 {WoW}

Mar 12th 2008 2:21AM She appears to dislike melee or people getting too close to her, so as you walk towards her, she goes away, and the path she follows eventually ends up in the whelps.

just range hit her, wands ftw, go make cuppa tea and come back for phase 2

Your WoWJutsu rank {WoW}

Feb 21st 2008 4:03AM I am one of the many whom have more that 1 entry in the wow armoury due to it not updating correctly when I changed to my new guild. This means all the gear i'm getting with my new guild in new progression is actually being given credit to my old guild. So they have gone on the rankings from a kara only guild to now 3/5ssc and 2/4 tk :/ Not too fussed as my current guild also has those kills recorded anyway, but it peevs me that
1) I cannot get wowjutsu to correct it, as I cannot find anyway of reporting it
2) That a guild is getting artificially bumped in the rankings when that does not reflect their true status

Comment voting is now enabled on WoW Insider {WoW}

Nov 27th 2007 3:39AM A welcome and good idea this, would be nice if the negative posts were "compressed" so to speak, so that do not need to scroll past them by default

Are you going to use voice chat? {WoW}

Sep 8th 2007 7:45AM Hmm, I mis voted then. I read the vote as who would use/is using a VOIP already/would in future. Not specifically the WOW one coming out.

That said, i probably will use it anyway at times, so the vote kinda still stands.

Breakfast topic: A guilty mind {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2007 9:41AM I felt really guilty about fortitude buffing someone once just before they jumped off the zepplin towards Undercity. They said thank you very much, jumped and died. I did not know then that the fall damage is based on your max health, but by just buffing them, i'd increased it, but they were not at 100% health when jumped.
A little time later I realised that it's a great sport especially on people whom I know are beggers or spammers.

I cannot stand killing the squirrels in Moonglade, simply because of the little Eeek they let out when dieing :(

Reader UI of the Week: March 1 - 15 {WoW}

Mar 16th 2007 6:43AM I like that alot, good work on that UI. But where do party/raid members go? As a priest that is one of the most important requirements during a raid.

Regarding the comments about zipping up the UI. I have two concerns, keyhacking and virus's. I know we are all friends here and it would not happen, but I doubt i'd download the file incase of something.
When a comprehensive list of the addons is attached that is usually enough to make the interface, albeit with a little tinkering time to arrange everything.

Blue Notes: Seduction, Pet Health, and Old Hillsbrad {WoW}

Mar 14th 2007 10:26AM Would be nice if they fixed the existing bugs in Old Hillsbrad in the Caverns of Time, before they try to improve it.
I'm after my Kara key so need to goto the Black Morass, but the run has now bugged with Thrall in the chapel every time i've tried. Getting very good at the first half of the instance now, but also getting rather annoyed.

Suggestion: an instance summary screen {WoW}

Mar 8th 2007 11:16AM LOL, yeah from a priestly point of view, i've noticed the increase in rogue healing (or dieing if i'm feeling that way inclinded) due to them tanking more. Give them plate and a blessing is what I say. That will slow them down and allow us to eat and drink a little.

As for damage meters, our rogues in the guild have stopped using them of their own free will. Mainly due to the massive competitions in raids when they started to receive massive amounts of damage/healing and so started to die more often as they got ignored. Not even vanishing etc. to lose aggro as it meant less dps. However the massive repair bills due to dieing more that 2x more than others in the run started to hurt them :P

My damage meter (or healing rather) I only really look at the end of the run to see how my healing team has done that evening, who was on and off form, and efficiency (over healing). And to be honest there is competition in the healers to get to the top also. There is nothing more annoying than a shaman or druid beating me to no.1 position at the end of the day.
The decursing is also actually very interesting, as it's almost/even more important as healing in some fights, and amazing how many people do not for one reason or another.

Another point to note, if someone is badly laggy that evening it makes a huge difference to the figures, not sure if people realise that.

Social guild events {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2007 8:00AM Tram riding is always fun when playing as horde. Raid up the guild and then go visit Stormwind and then get to the tram and out of Ironforge at the other end. The winner being the first to get out the other end.

A long walk for low levels and fun on the way also, but if everyone is Gnomeragen level or higher, then the teleport to get there and then Ironforge is easier reversing the above run.

Breakfast Topic: Looking for... {WoW}

Feb 5th 2007 7:21AM It's simple, the LFG interface works, but unless everyone use it, it will never be popular, and so getting groups together will be hard.
As some people have posted already, it's simpler for me to spam /general and random /w people, well life is always simpler some way or another.

Personally as a priest, I am sick to death of being random whispered to join instances/raids/quests and it's even more annoying when i'm already in one and it's obvious from my location i'm busy.

When i'm not busy and thinking about a run, simple, put your name in the LFG and let it tick over in the back ground. It is very rare that I HAVE to do an instance that second, i'm more than happy to wait a period of time and do it in due cause. Does noone have patience anymore? Everyone is must do it NOW NOW NOW, 20minutes time is too late.

My suggestion to all is simple, subscribe upto do things in LFG and if you so want also spam every channel in the world. But at least by subscribing you may actually see people whom are already looking??? Also, stop the random /w, it's very rare that spure of the moment i want to travel half way around the world for your instance when i'm already doing something.
