The Queue: Why it's not time for a warlock tank {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 1:15PM Queue readers, for an expansion, would you rather have 1 new class with 3 specs (like the Monk) or give 3 classes 1 new spec each?

In "World of StarCraft", chose from one of ten exciting classes as you enter the epic life of a Terran colonist!

The Protoss come and purify the planet within five minutes of gameplay. The end!

Know Your Lore: The haunting legacy of Grom Hellscream {WoW}

Mar 25th 2012 8:49PM Well, there's also a portion of the fanbase that DOESN'T think there's a well-written story behind any lore developments since Wrath of the Lich King (or earlier). Instead, they believe the creative development team just makes plot and character developments without fully thinking of their causes or consequences, and fans and fan sites like WoW Insider are filling in the logic and thematic gaps as best they can.

Breakfast Topic: Are sexy transmog sets OK in your raid group? {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 9:51AM Well, with 10 million players, maybe there IS a guild out there saying, "We did allow them, but then it led to a cybering orgy in Dragon Soul, so we stopped." I doubt it, though.

World of Warcraft Monopoly money features heroes on the bills {WoW}

Mar 15th 2012 10:24AM @iscalio And don't forget the $10,000 bill, which has all the presidents having a party, and Jimmy Carter's passed out on the coach, according to the "Mr. Plow" episode of The Simpsons.

Breakfast Topic: 'Every female WoW player has healed at least once' {WoW}

Mar 12th 2012 9:21AM I think the idea has to do with broader video game RPG tropes. It's common to have a healing female character in video games (Marle in Chrono Trigger, Aerith in Final Fantasy, etc.), so players of both genders end up being more likely to roll female characters when they intend to make a healer. And when we enter situations like dungeon finder where we don't use voice chat and assume players share the same gender as their characters, it creates the impression of there being lots of female players playing healers.

Mar 12th 2012 9:11AM I wouldn't say it was a negative stereotype; I think Olivia took issue just because it's plain ol' incorrect.

Tanks and healers are both venerated in my experience.

Breakfast Topic: 'Every female WoW player has healed at least once' {WoW}

Mar 12th 2012 9:03AM By now, we sadly have evidence that a "mean killing machine" can lurk in pretty much people of every gender... hell, pretty much every category in the grouping system of humanity.
