The Queue: Tier 8, wormholes, and more {WoW}

Dec 8th 2008 8:12PM Thats not T8... the "lock" set is putrus's gear and the "mage" set is what Rhion wears in Dalaran... this video is from someone who fails at digging up skins from item Id's.

Ask WoW Insider: Minimum raiding requirements {WoW}

Oct 27th 2008 7:31PM Odyssey on Alleria raids 3 nights a week for 2.5 hours. From June1st when we started Grulls, with just 7.5 hours a week, we've put down Illidan. So yes you can raid endgame content with less then 3days 4 hours a week.

Another option for new content: factional class flipping? {WoW}

Oct 10th 2007 6:22PM I see some great potential in this idea for those who need to change classes but don't want to re-level. I'm sure everyone's met a warrior who should be a rogue, a pally who should be a warrior, etc. Where they didn't know what their end game role would be when they rolled their toon.

This way that Retardin you know can finally learn to be a true dps class!

PS I do recognize in rare cases the off spec players can be very useful and effective, but for the most part they are less effective then other class in the off spec role.

Have you had your moment yet? {WoW}

Sep 25th 2007 6:15PM I'm going to toss two "Wow" moments in here.

#1 On Vael our Off tank DC's, he returns as we're wiping at 1%, the dragon turns to him, (by this point vent is full of disappointment), then comes that little sound and splatter of blood from execute as Vael falls at his feet, followed shortly by the OT's death from BA.

#2 This was the moment I realized warrior was my new main... I had been a healer (priest) through MC and BWL. I had a alt warrior geared in decent blues. One night a tank vanished during razor, so I was asked to play mine, under geared I tanked my corner solidly. Then on Veal I stood just left of our MT (Who I had grown to admire in the months of supporting him with heals). I put as much threat as I could and when the MT when down Veal turned to me, I quickly snapped him into position (I'm pretty sure I forgot to breathe at this point). There was no way my under geared warrior should have survived, but I guess my healer friend had my back. I lasted the full 45 seconds before falling, shortly after Veal followed. Laying there next to our MT finally catching my breath, was when I realized wow, that was fun.

Breakfast Topic: Repeat visits {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2007 1:45PM Baron runs all the way. I ran that at least 100+ times, at one point (Pre-TBC) myself (Prot warrior) a warlock and a priest, were 3manning in nearly 45 minutes. Chain pulls ftw.

Long, exceptional, and hidden questlines {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 3:57PM My priest, warrior and hunter all had 0.5... two of them didn't really need it (wearing T2) but I did the chains because I was bored. It was really long... not hard though, 45 baron was a cake walk with a decent group and vent.

Are you going to use voice chat? {WoW}

Sep 8th 2007 2:43PM "Frankly? No. I type 160 WPM and that's fast enough for most situations for what -I- need to say. I also keep alert to what's going on in my party (I'm a tank) and pay attention to where my mobs are that I'm supposed to be taking care of. The last thing I need in a tense situation is to HEAR "Oh, God, you stupid tank, get this thing off me!" when I'm already trying but they're not stopping their damn DPS." @29

Even typing 160WPM, there is no way you are effectively tanking (sunder, shield slam, etc) while your typing. Simply put, players who can talk while fully using their characters abilities with out delay will always play better then those who are typing.

I've been using Vent/TS for years, it was very weird at first (after months 1-60 with out it), but now I see how much more effective it is in groups. Quick communication in panic situations and great for explaining encounters to newer players.

I'll use in game for PUG, Vent/TS for raids/guild runs but I'll avoid groups with out voice chat as best I can because most (MOST) players who don't use it tend to suck.

Instance griefing not against the ToS? {WoW}

Mar 6th 2007 3:32PM Two comments.

One: There is a bug with MC and other instances, where you can zone in as leader (my self being raid leader) with out being saved, then upon zoning in I actually join another guilds instance, becoming saved with out even a "you are now saved to this instance message".
We start clearing MC trash, notice there are no dogs. Then find out we've some how ended up in another guilds instance. The GM I contacted said they were aware of the issue. It then happend to us again 2 weeks later.

Comment Two, A solution:
The Raid leader for an instance when the ID is created (Aka first boss downed) is the OWNER of the instance. Basically give them a mean to kick players from the zone, not just the raid, or something along those lines.
