May 16th 2009 3:20PM I 100% agree with you. What's 100g? I can get that in a half hour of dailies now.
Why not get rid of Rez Sickness and the equipment repair cost and also take the hearthstone down to 60 seconds, free epics, and allow every class to heal and stealth? Lets make the game even EASIER! There has to be a balance between success and failure for your successes to feel rewarding. Northrend is far too easy as it is.
Blizzard... Put some of the challenge and fun back in the game and make certain things worth the time and effort.

Actually you don't own it and you can't do with it however you please.
If Blizzard intended you to be able to play it offline, they would've included server software or an offline version.
And the packaging clearly states that you will need an internet connection AND pay a monthly subscription to play the game.
Dec 8th 2008 8:16AM "If Bliz wants to pull the copyright thing more power to them but be warned there will be a landmark case one of these days and then the line in the sand will be drawn..."
Umm... Actually that line has already been drawn and Blizzard is using that to shut down the private servers. They have every right to demand that the private servers be shut down and more power to them. It's their product and they deserve to protect it.
Dec 8th 2008 8:13AM Private servers are just like those people selling knockoffs of movies, bags, watches in NYC.
Jun 13th 2008 10:26AM I can understand why DPS is so much fun, but I also find it a little boring at times. I've gotten my feral druid to 63 and have tanked both Ramparts and Blood Furnace to varying degrees of success.
I seem to have trouble if I don't work a pull correctly or the DPS peel mobs off of me in a multi-mob pull. I've asked several times to allow me to get in a couple hits and a Mangle... I guess they just don't understand and should definitely read this article!
Note to DPS... Don't open with your highest damage spells and abilities and allow your tank to establish solid aggro or you'll be laying on your back staring up at the sky wondering what happened.
This and the first article have been superior reads and reaffirm why I choose to level a tank. Keep up the outstanding work and consider yourself lucky you only have Bob and Larry's voices in your head.
Jun 6th 2008 12:47AM Outstanding article! This was a fun and VERY educational read.
I've recently leveled a feral druid to 61 and have really enjoyed tanking so far. It makes you focus and take every pull seriously. I feel that aside from a healer a tank is the other component that will make or break an instance run.
So far in my tanking journey (my short journey so far) the only two issues I've had are with casters and attack rotation. Other than Bash I have no way to deal with spells and boy do some of those hurt!. As for an attack rotation (against a single melee mob) I basically hit up Mangle and then throw in Maul when I have enough rage to dump. Seems kind of dare I say... Boring? Am I doing something wrong?
Only suggestion I have for the column is to rename it... We already have Totem Talk :) I'm sure we can come up with a better name!

If I woke up naked on a deserted island and had a raid that night? Easy!
I'd hearth back to Shattrath or use my water-walking ability!

70% of Outland quests reward good Enhancement Mail? Are you sure you are playing as an enhancement shaman and not a Elemental Shaman? Most mail rewards are geared towards the Elemental Shaman with the +Int and healing on them. I'd say almost 1-10 or 1-12 mail pieces are actually worth taking as an enhancement shaman.
You'll often find leather pieces that are better suited with the +sta, +str, and +agi on them.
