Bringing on the Snark

February 28, 2011 at 2:56 am (Snark)

Time for a round of snarky comments for raids and instances.  Feel free to use, but be sure reference the original content!  (yeah, right)

Amazing!  Who knew that Consecrate would break CC?

I’ve always found that cloth makes for poor tanking gear, but be my guest.  (For your favorite aggro pulling mage/lock)

Dragging Out the Crystal Orb…

February 24, 2011 at 7:53 pm (Shared Topic)

Although players are still busy digging through all of the Cataclysm raid and heroic content, some are already starting to wonder what we’ll see added to the game in the 4.1 patch and beyond. While we have some hints, what do you expect to see added over the life of the expansion? How many patches? How many new dungeons? What will happen to your favorite professions? And how will the expansion’s storyline continue to unfold — and which loose ends will be wrapped up by the time the 5.0 patch is released?

It is difficult to predict which way Blizzard will go with any expansion – who really would have predicted as much “vehicle” combat as we had in WotLK?  Everyone assumed that the final boss of the expansion would be Arthas himself, and we were not wrong on that score.  I don’t think that the developers would let us off without a chance at Deathwing himself; to do so might well alienate a large portion of the playing and paying public.  Patch 4.1 will offer up the Firelands raid, ending in defeating Ragranos.  I feel confident that we can call patch 4.3 to end with Deathwing – but what comes in-between?

Tips for First Time Hunters

February 18, 2011 at 4:54 pm (Hunter Helper)

The rush for new hunters began again with Cataclysm, not only from players new to the game, but those leveling up new classes opened to hunters, and those who were sick and tired of watching the nerf bat slam into their class.  With the speed of leveling these days, it seems that some of the hunters are arriving at 85 molded in the “huntard” class, with little understanding of what they’re capable of.  So, if you’re new to the game, know a new hunter, or want to help one out, read on.

Rage, Rage Against the Dropping of the Tank

February 16, 2011 at 3:35 am (5-Mans, QQ, Tanks)

If it’s the middle of the week, it must be my rage against the tank day.  Well, not really, but perhaps today.  Monday evening, I experienced my favorite DPS type – the line cutter.  The line cutters are those who quene with a tank, with the full intention of the tank dropping and leaving the group stranded until the next tank comes along.  However, the DPS who haven’t bothered to wait the 35-50 minutes necessary are entitiled to remain.  Had there not been two of them, I would have put the DPS up to a kick vote at first opportunity. 

I find myself wondering if Blizzard is tracking those who drop upon entering an instance.  Perhaps the mere 15 minute debuff isn’t enough.  I’m thinking about subtracting equipment points.  Any other ideas?

Who drank all the Kungaloosh?  <hic> <thud>
