Jun 28th 2007 8:39AM As a priest I must admit I don't see anything "special" about rogues. I much prefer to party with classes that can add something to the overall(buffs, supplies, whatever). Sure they can DPS like anything but that's about it.
Jun 25th 2007 10:53AM I'm mystified at all the coverage this sale is getting around the WOW universe. Company gets founded, grows, is popular, gets bought.
It's no-ones business, except the company and the buyer.
Jun 24th 2007 7:46AM Tip to all: dump the "heal me!" macro, it's goddamn insult, you never see "DPS NOW!" or "FIREBALL!" or "TANK IT!" macros, do you? No. So you don't need a "heal me" either.
I don't understand what they think we priests are doing in groups, that we need "reminding" to heal.
Jun 22nd 2007 5:39PM I think something important to remember about this is the player makes the class good. It's not just about stats. And here's a simple fact - you find far fewer "crap" holy priests at 70 than you do druids and pallys.
It's far easier to get them to 70 than it is a priest. People who take a priest all the way do so because they love the class and I think this is reflected generally in WoW - if you ask a group to choose between a holy priest, holy pally and a resto druid, I would guess the majority will go for the priest every time, regardless of who's been nerfed, who's been buffed and who what where and why.
You have to remember that 90% of players don't read the forums, don't read the notes, don't read the wikis and just play the game. And, in WoW, priest = best healer.
Jun 22nd 2007 8:53AM Teleport and sheep. I mean, seriously, what else do you want from life? You can teleport around while everyone else spend 15 mins flying and you can turn people in small mammals. If that's not cool, nothing is.
Jun 21st 2007 8:25AM Whenever I start a new class-based game of any type, I have a habit of going for the warrior type, which I did with WoW. For some reason, I find warriors a good way to learn a game.
I don't always last long, my warrior got to 43 and that was it - I went priest and never looked back.
Jun 15th 2007 5:34PM I think the people who truly enjoy WOW for years (like myself) understand it's as much a journey as a destination.
I read the levelling guides myself, but they don't take into account things like "how I feel today" or "I don't want to spend time in this scenery today" and so on. They may work, but they've got no soul.
Jun 15th 2007 11:52AM As a long term enchanter, I can't stand the idiots who "want glowz". Just today I inspected a *very* impressively epic'd out tank, to find he had a damn Demonslaying! WTF?!?!
Anyway, the best (kinda) enchant I ever did was Crusader on mining pick (to complement your mining bit). Guy had too much cash I guess.
BTW, Glowchart *was* great. Though I believe he's promising to update it.
Jun 9th 2007 5:57PM You know, giving it some thought, I barely even think of WOW as a "game" - compared to other games - lets say C&C or Crackdown or Doom - it's incredibly easy. There really isn't that much challenge, and there's no real penalty for "failure". The only bit of WOW that is "gaming" in the traditional sense is Arenas.
Jun 9th 2007 5:43PM BTW, @2 - having less holidays in the USA doesn't mean you work harder, it just means you work more, there is a *very* big difference...
