Stats for a Warrior, Part 1
Today I’m going shift gears a little and instead of talking about what’s going on in the game, discuss stats for Warriors, Druids, and Paladins. I might even go farther and do a writeup of some of the other classes, but let’s not get ahead of myself. We will discuss warriors first, specifically prot first. Prot warriors are the classic, posterboy of the tanking world. Running off...
What's your biggest regret in your WoW experience?
Title says it all: what is the biggest thing you regret since starting to play WoW? Rolled a different class, killed that rogue, left a guild, what was it? I know the thing that I regret the most was not leaving for a bigger guild during TBC. At the same time, if given the opportunity, I wouldn’t change a thing. Let me elaborate. I hit Outlands on my first Horde toon a week or two after...
Better late than never... Stat Changes
Ok, so Blizzard posted it several days ago, and I have been really busy, so here’s my 2 on the situation. Cataclysm Stat Changes I’m not going to go over all the classes, just the ones that matter to me: tanks and plate dps (maybe kitty dps also). Lets just dive right into this. Italics are quotes from Blizzard’s post, found here. Strength, Agility, Hit Rating, Expertise,...
I’m drawing a blank on something to write right now, so stay tuned. Blizz just announced some of the stat changes in Cataclysm, so stay tuned for my opinion on that. My first glance has raised some small worries. Like I said, more to come.
An update on my toons
So just an update, since I haven’t posted lately. Last week was my “spring break”, and since I’m usually posting in class (shhhh! Don’t tell!) or during my lunch, I wasn’t posting at home. But during the break, I made a very (and ugh!!) decision: every one (4) of my toons will be a tank or a healer… So my warrior is a tank, my priest is a healer, my druid...
Ctrl+Alt+Del - Comics - Gearscore vs. Skill →
A simple follow up of the post I made a little bit ago about why GS sucks and skill is important.
Getting that monkey off your back
No, I’m not talking about drugs, or addiction, or anything close to that. I’m talking about Gearscore, and if you realize it or not, it effects how you play. It started out as just a way for developers to help weigh stats (b/c its based on item level), and rapidly became sooo much more than that. More after the break What is Item Level? So I mentioned something that you might...
HP is not an excuse for ignoring strategy
The post says it all - just because you have 40k hp doesn’t mean you can ignore boss mechanics entirely. Since I have started to gear my druid out in the heroics, I have come across more and more lazy tanks that think that since they out gear the heroics, they can just stand in “fire” and ignore everything about the boss, and it greatly annoys me as someone who also plays a...
A quick note
Hi readers (I hope someone is reading this!!) just wanted to touch bases about whats going on. At the moment, the page is VERY bland, and there is nothing I can really do about it. The site Tumblr has the ability to customize the background, but it isnt working at the time, so I am kinda forced into using a really bland background or a really gaudy one. I chose bland (obviously). I hope to God...
Are Heroics Dumbing down WoW?
I’m going to start off with a repost from a great blogger over at worldofmatticus.com, Thespius. Are Easier Heroics Better in the Long Run? The patch 3.3.2 includes a few amendments to Heroic Dungeons and how they’re played. Entire packs of mobs are being deleted. Bosses abilities are being shortened or being made less frequent. Fight mechanics are being made easier. In essence,...
A surprising change!!
So this is odd day where I will post more than once in a day, but I came across an astonishing revelation this weekend: I don’t want to tank on my druid. Don’t get me wrong, I love him, but the druid method of attaining threat is annoying, and I’m really enjoying playing as a tree or a cat in PVE. I enjoyed being a tank when I was leveling, but all of sudden, I have these asses...
The Problem with Wintergrasp...
The problem with Wintergrasp, and any other future Zone Wide PVP settings similar to it (I think there is one in Cataclysm?), is that servers that are extremely imbalanced will never have fun with these zones. NEVER!!! Take for instance my server, Blackwing Lair. According to Warcraft Census, BWL has a 1A:5.2H ratioat lvl 80, but that’s active. Take into account all the lvl 80 alts that the...
I'm still experimenting with this site, so bear with me if on your next visit it looks entirely different.
Teh internets = permission to be an ass
I dont know why this is a big surprise to me at this point: I mean I have been involved in the internet and communicating with other people via chats boards and mmo’s for 5+ years now, but it still shocks me at times with how much of a bunch of asses the people are in the world. Let me set the scene: My fresh lvl 80 druid (feral/resto) has set out to farm TOC for 3 of the 4 trinkets. I ran...
The Virgin Post
So I have tried to blog before, but at the time, there just wasnt enough going on in my life for me to actually right about. So I guess a little bit about me is in order. I’m a 22 year old TV Production student at the North Alberta Institute of Technology. I’m orginally from the United States, the Deep South to be specific, but I’m here in Alberta Canada now. Like the title of...
