The correct link is here:
Apr 15th 2009 2:31PM How do you do a DPS ability and strafe at the same time (excluding the use of a mouse with a L/R mouse wheel)?
I bind A/D to strafe and turn using the right-mouse button, so with my index finger on D, my other fingers can't reach past it to the right. That limits the other fingers to 1-2-3, QW, AS, ZX.
Mar 11th 2009 1:28PM It requires less work to find 1-4 partners for 1 hour of arena than to find 9-24 partners for 3 hours of raiding.
Mar 5th 2009 2:14PM The best quest reward, money-wise, doesn't come from vendoring. Doing the daily JC quest will give you a token which can be used to purchase a Dragon's Eye which will sell for hundreds of gold on the AH.

Feb 3rd 2009 8:10PM If you make replenishment so common that 99.7% of random 25-man raids have it, what's the point of the buff in the first place? You may as well remove it from the game and bake it into the mana regeneration mechanics.
I like the idea that raid leaders have to be kind of selective about the class makeup. They can bring a shadowpriest for replenishment, or a rogue for higher DPS. I'm assuming, of course, that Blizzard makes good on its promise to make pure-DPS classes do a bit more than hybrids in challenging endgame content.
Jan 28th 2009 6:34PM I got a new computer for WotLK too, but I found the biggest difference in gameplay to come from a new microphone. I had tried a number of headphone mics before, and none of them are close to the new Logitech USB Desktop mic. It looks like an 8" black reed growing out of a 4" square silver base. It is absolutely amazing, and guildies can finally hear me during raids now. I bought it on Amazon for about $20.

Jan 28th 2009 1:28PM I had one 2v2 game on Monday night in which we lost 22 points, and the other team lost 8 points. I can't figure out how that happened. If they were lower-rated than us, they should have won a lot of points for winning the game. If they were higher-rated than us, then we shouldn't have lost 22 points. In either case, they should have won some points for winning.
My partner and I have been in the 1400-1500 range all season, and neither of us have ever paired with a much higher or lower-rated partner. So no shenanigans there.
