Worst Movie Accents: 15 Manglings of the Foreign (and Southern) Tongue {Moviefone Blog}

Aug 28th 2009 12:49PM Hell, Sean Connery doing a spanish accent while Christopher Lambert does a scots accent is a twofer in the original Highlander.

A discussion in defense of new race/class combinations, Pt. 2 {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 11:33PM OMG Wildhammer Shamans.. I hope to hell we can get the tattoos, too. As much as I love my maxed out Draenei Shaman, I would seriously reroll and relevel a dorf shammess.

Flavor names for new race/class combos {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 3:38PM OMG Wildhammers.. that would be the BEST! I've always wanted to play one!

Battle.net conversion to become mandatory soon {WoW}

Aug 24th 2009 11:57PM Ma'am, not sir. And wait until you get multiple games hacked at once and see how you feel. Yea, it happened w/in the last 24 hours and it's a little raw. I stand by my comment. Thank GOD I don't have you in my guild.

Battle.net conversion to become mandatory soon {WoW}

Aug 24th 2009 9:37PM Yea, battlenet will just mean that if you get hacked, they can also access any OTHER blizzard games you play. Ask me how I know. Ah well, Aion comes out in a month. Screw this game anymore anyway.

Dual specs and loot priority {WoW}

Aug 24th 2009 5:05PM Our guild runs, we ask players to tell us what spec they intend to roll on that night before first pull. Works fine. I don't pug, but if I did, I'd ask the same. I really don't get loot drama - if you are clear with everyone up front, 99.9% of the time there's no problem. People don't take the 2 minutes to get clear FIRST, and end up QQ later.

Preparing for BlizzCon: What to pack in your backpack {WoW}

Aug 10th 2009 11:09PM I can't go, but if I did go, Robin, I'd have knitting, too!

Do tanks get the most out of PuGs? {WoW}

Jul 26th 2009 6:23PM Really? I'd MUCH rather heal with my shammy than my druid. I find it much more interesting and challenging then HoT, HoT, HoT, oshitswiftmend, HoT.

Alison, one thing that CAN make your job a lot easier is proactive totems. That is, really use the heck out of your resist totems, and feel comfy swapping out totems from pull to pull. If you aren't using them to their full advantage already, that can really help.

One thing Shamans have problems with is big big burst damage, since we have very limited instant heals. Keeping any enviromental damage down as low as possible can really help make the difference between a 15K crit on a 18K health tank and a 15K crit on a 18K tank with 4K of fire damage. Yea, 18K is low, but I'm trying to remember lvl 70 numbers. Flopping down nature resist, fire resist, cleansing, healing stream, tremor totems, wind shocking casters (even if they're not targeting you personally) all can be more help than you think likely until you do it. Beside, it's FUN!

Other than that, all a healer can do, sometimes, is put their foot down HARD. I feel totally comfortable saying to a group 'OK, the tank knows his job, I can heal, so the wipes are NOT our fault. If you guys can't get away from the axes and melee *stand behind the boss*, don't even think about asking for heals.' And then the next wipe, don't even bother with anyone who stands in front of a smash except the tank. Then point out exactly who died due to zero heals. /hug

Gearing up for PvP: Gaming surfaces and keyboards {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2009 4:45PM Nostromos will change your WoW experience forever. Seriously. What's more, Belkin lifetime warranties them. I had one button go south on me after 3 yrs and got a replacement in the mail 2 days later, after a 5 minute webchat with their technical support. I found mine on sale for $30, and it was the best money I've spent on my online experience.

Ask a Lore Nerd: Speculation station {WoW}

Jul 21st 2009 1:13PM But the lovely big blue women are lovable Vykul! I'd roll one in a heartbeat. At last, a female warrior toon that doesn't look like a bimbo.
