Jun 13th 2008 9:24AM I recently wrote a guide taking the current PAP/growl scaling into account. Most likely it will only be applicable until WotLK comes out, but I think it's worthwhile to distribute for the next few months.
IMO, if you have a pet with a focus dump, your first 12 points should be towards getting GftT. Then you can decide whether to stay with MM until TSA or start down BM.

Jun 2nd 2008 2:21PM Something to consider is that for anyone to increase their rating someone needs to go down. Prior to the last patch, I was one in the latter group. I didn't care if my rating went down because at the end of the week, I still got my points and eventually my epics. Now there's very little reason for me to play. What casual is going to get beat over and over so he can get gloves?
I realize that weapons, chests, leggings, and shoulders are status symbols but that's the point. I can put in X weeks of work and get a status symbol just by putting in my time. How is that different from a rep grind? With the new system coming in, the set of losers who don't mind losing are going to leave. You're going to be left with good but not great players that will never get ahead, who will then leave, and eventually be left with only the hardest of the hardcore that will then no longer be able to get ahead and then arenas will die. That is, if bliz lets it go that long.
Personally, I think this is an experiment, which will probably be reversed to give at least one of the status items back to 'does not needing a rating.' They need the casuals in there to lose every week so the better players can get ahead.
And for those arena welfare haters - it took me 5 weeks to get the 1000 points for my axe. I looked at it like a very long daily quest, but I could only do it once a week. I got exalted with the netherwing in less time, and got an item I wanted more than an axe. I actually think the 3000 points for the main weapons is too much since that would be 3-4 months. Think of how many exalted grinds could be done in that amount of time.

I'm curious to know how a Steady Shot 'mash it' macro works for variable latency, whether better or worse. It's an issue for me too.
Apr 25th 2008 11:20AM My personal opinion is that if you are new to the game (and this is a column for newbies), you should focus on gathering professions (mining, skinning, herbalism). There's enough things to learn about your class, questing grouping, reputations, etc.
If you need to ask what professions you should take, you don't know enough about the rest of the game and should focus on that rather than getting distracted.
