Shifting Perspectives: Cat 101, part 3 {WoW}

Feb 12th 2010 2:22PM "Here's where things start getting weird. You now have a series of cooldowns and debuffs to juggle for the length of the fight, with the aim being never to allow Savage Roar, Mangle, Rake, or Rip to drop (or at least to keep their dropped time to a minimum). Keep reapplying them as necessary."

THIS IS NOT RIGHT. You are telling people not to let Rake or Rip run through their duration, which is very important. Do not clip your dots, people! It is true that Savage Roar and Mangle should never fall off if possible, and re-applying them before they fall off has no penalty beyond a possible wasted GCD, but the same is not true for the dots. You want to get them up as fast as possible after they fall off...but let them fall off.

Druid's Swipe now generates 50% increased threat {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 5:06PM This is fixing the wrong problem. Swipe's threat was fine. The issue that causes bears to have problems are those pesky mobs that get behind us. I need my bear butt to do some kind of rear facing AOE to get threat back there.

But hey, I'll take it.

The downfalls of player-created housing {WoW}

Jul 10th 2007 3:11PM I loved my house in DAOC. Maybe you needed a better guild, dude. My medium sized guild had two villages that all of our individual houses and our guild house were in. People coordinated so that this guy had vendor x, this other guy had vendor y and so on. Guild house had a public vault for people to take and put drops into. Was very fun and useful.

An open letter against a dysphemism {WoW}

Jun 26th 2007 1:16PM I'm a guy, and a feminist, but I have to disagree with this. The word "rape" encompasses more than just sexual assault. It means to despoil, ravage, violate, etc (it's easy to see why it has come to be used for sexual assault). If you completely pwn Gruul, it makes sense to say you raped him.

"Gay" is completely different. Although "gay" can mean happy, the use of it as an insult is related to its meaning concerning homosexuals. It is similar to calling someone a p*ssy or saying that someone runs or throws like a girl. With these insults, being a woman or homosexual is equated with being weak or ineffective. That's why they're offensive.

Guildwatch: Stripped bare {WoW}

May 16th 2007 2:29PM OMG, you said toon.

"Classic" servers for a simpler time {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2007 5:06PM DAOC needed to get classic servers because Trials of Atlantis killed that game (transformed it from a primarily RvR/PvP game into a PVE time sink game). I don't think we're quite there yet in WoW. BC is more of the same, not a change of paradigm.
