Apr 26th 2008 9:36AM how about a dual instance.

instance 1-- play as much as you want except for one boss monster

when you are in a party that kills that boss- a little box comes up asking your assent,

from then on-- entering gnomer the instance is the 'recovered' gnomer

same portal, different experience....

Arcane Brilliance: Cast fast and hit hard {WoW}

Apr 5th 2008 7:08PM Apologies for disclarity
"22.46-9.9 12.56 critical strikes"? with the low spell crit, (10%) I'll get it 9.9 times out of a hundred, with the high spell crit, I'll get it 22.46 times out of a hundred, the difference being, 22.46-9.9 equals 12.56 more crits per hundred casts..

You lost me at "I get for each crit-- in my case *arcane* crits return a great deal to me...
so those bonuses hit an amazing 226% more often."

the line feed after 'bonus' should not be there, but same thing.. with lower crit, I'll crit 10 times out of a hundred, with higher- I'll crit 22 times out of a hundred-- that means all my bonuses for critting (clearcasting etc) will happen 12 times more per hundred casts...

I didn't think of it as whining, I love max crit because it helps my bottom line & proc on crit bonuses so very very much...





Arcane Brilliance: Cast fast and hit hard {WoW}

Apr 5th 2008 3:39PM Spell hit is #1?
Lets say we are talking about the same level 73 and 2k fireballs.

at 100 casts hitting is 200 k damage
but since our spell hit is 96% we only get 192k in damage
if we max our spell hit rating, to 99% we can get the 198k in damage

Now- lets say gearing for that 99% spell hit means we have a low 10% Spell CRIT
10% of the time we will get double damage- 10% of 99% means 9.9 times of 2000 or
a total of 217.8k damage over 100 casts

Now- lets go with 83% spell hit chance (no gear) and 27.05% crit (my own spec)
83*100 hits gives me 166k in base damage
83*27.07 =22.46 extra casts at 2k each 210936 damage....

so, over 100 casts I have lost 6,900 damage, (or 69 DPS a cast) but
I've picked up 22.46-9.9 12.56 critical strikes, along with all the assocated bonuses
I get for each crit-- in my case *arcane* crits return a great deal to me...
so those bonuses hit an amazing 226% more often.

He said, she said: Does Blizzard support homosexual stereotyping? {WoW}

Mar 30th 2008 12:08PM People-- ALIEN IS ALIEN..
Look at any of the historical mythos, or even popular books and movies, and yes- compared to a 'normal' human standard all elves in literature and common culture are a little foppish.. Lord of the rings-- anyone see that? the fact that elves seem different (call it homoish if you must) compared to humans doesn't mean they are gay- it means they are a different species of humanoid- with a different set of standards and 'normal' Blizzard didn't make elves that look 'gay' , they made them look like "ELVES"

Around Azeroth: Getting to know Rotgrip {WoW}

Jun 12th 2007 11:49AM "which is interestingly textured exactly like the rest of him."

Not interesting.. neat shoot sure.. but the fact that the texture is the same is because of openGL mechanics.. try this.. fly Ironforge-Menethil. when flying down the mountain, play with the viewpoint, you can see the birds face from the inside and it looks the same as well...
