Every week or two, WoW Insider brings you Encrypted Text for assassination, combat and subtlety rogues. Scott Helfand (@sveltekumquat) will be your shadow on this treacherous journey; try not to keep your back turned for too long, and make sure your valuables are stashed somewhere safe.

Here in the world of public WoW
commentary, we love us our complainin'. Be it on forums, Twitter, videos, podcasts or blogs, we enjoy chewing on the game, swishing it around in our mouths a bit, spitting it back out onto our plate and then lamenting how disgusting it looks.
Now, to be fair, we do so with good reason. If we don't let WoW

But sometimes -- just every now and then, mind you, we don't have to make it a habit -- it can be just as helpful to talk about what we do
like. Not just for the designers, to help them understand what parts of WoW
we appreciate and regard as shining examples of the game's successes; but for us as well, to give us a healthier perspective on this e-world we call a virtual home.
