WoW Moviewatch: Wings for Hector {WoW}

Sep 9th 2008 1:18PM Anyone else notice that the rogue doing the PvP was undead and everyone he is killing was Horde? Was looking for a Orb of Deception but none to be found. Last time I heard there wasn't a free-for-all PvP server. My guess would be a private server was used for the film.

What to wear to melt faces in Karazhan, part one {WoW}

Jun 24th 2008 1:47PM Spellstrike is better if your not spell hit capped. Battlecast is nice for the superior stats 2 sockets on the helm and loads of spell damage. You thought to include a green in the list why not something vastly better?

Mana-etched Shoulders are not sub-par by any means. Healthy Stam, Intel, and Spirit. Shadow Word: Death is nice but only counts when you have the hit points to live through one. It at the very least, deserves a mention.

MP5 on shoulders is also not a wasted stat. More MP5 = more DPS which = more mana which = more DPS.

There are a lot of other decent options that were not mentioned.

What to wear to melt faces in Karazhan, part one {WoW}

Jun 24th 2008 1:21PM I'm pretty disappointed in this article. It was half-done at best. You completely skipped Battlecasthood and pants, denounced the Scryer +crit enchant but didn't mention the +mp5 one available at honored and totally skipped on some easy quest cloaks that are available. For shoulders you skipped the drops from Black Morass and Arcatraz (off the first boss none the less). Not to make you feel bad but if you want to know the proper way to write this article, take a look at Rossi's Care and feeding of warriors KZ post. That is a complete guide with excellent suggestions.

How many end games have there been? {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2008 1:50PM I'm amazed that all the WoW-smart@$$'$ out there didn't mention that UBRS was technically the first "end-game" instance.

Around Azeroth: Rubber ducky, you're the one {WoW}

May 22nd 2008 10:40AM They are trying to be sneaky. They almost had it right because they fixed the posted date/time on the posts...but forgot to fix the date/time on the comments on this picture.

Whoops!

I have always used /whisper or /w. Don't think I've ever even seen /t used.

Opening a dialog about sexism in World of Warcraft {WoW}

Feb 11th 2008 1:31PM Forgive me, this is gonna sound so sexist but please don't take it that way.

"Women are often important contributing members of guilds and raids."

Since when did WoW Insider become a Women's Lib blog?

To imply that women are "important contributing" more then a man is being counter productive to your argument. I disagree that any one sex, male or female, is more or less important to a guild/group/raid.

I can understand if it upsets you that a guy treats you in an inappropriate manner that you would be upset and outraged. However, making your blog into a support column for a overrated book such as the one you listed above is unforgivable.

You cry for equality, yet you post the same 30+ year old rhetoric.

It's a game. People piss people off. Male to male, female to male, male to female, even the rare female to female. It's the way it's been, in and out of games, for years.

Stretching yourself too thin? {WoW}

Jan 8th 2008 10:35AM Matthew,

Also being a Matthew in RL, I have to say I always enjoy your articles due to fabulous writing and topics that are easy to relate too.

I have the same issue as described. I have 4 alliance 70's on SoE (Sister's of Elune) and was a Guild Leader for over 2 years. Making a lot of friends in the process, some even in RL. After a frustrating,disastrous merger, I decided to try horde side on the same server. It just so happens I chose a Fury warrior to level. I was managing to keep up with your articles about leveling a warrior as you posted them and they helped a great deal. I made a tough choice to leave my friends, which most either message me or hop Horde side to beg for heals/tankage/DPS. I found focusing on one character to be refreshing. So now on horde side, if they need a tank they come to me and I'm not switching toons back and forth.
