Wow PvP Pt1: The Death of World PvP

The current state of PvP in World of Warcraft. World PvP is gone, resilience has destroyed everything, battleground queues are torture, and twinking was murdered…but will Cataclysm save it?

Real-ID could be a security risk

Even though the lifted NDA for Cataclysm has pretty much outshined anything else WoW-related, I took the time to read up on the much anticipated Real-ID networking system and found myself to be less than thrilled. The official page says this is meant mostly for IRL friends, but they contradict themselves by also stating they’re…

WoW Quiz says Horde Shaman. Go figure?

Online quizzes are the bane of all office workers. It’s always uncanny when they are spot-on, too.

Ultimate Online WoW Resource Guide

A zilliion years ago for BC I had made a post about online resources for WoW for all sorts of areas of the game. That was actually more like 3 years ago and the list had maybe six links. Since then, the game has obviously changed and many sites have phased out in favor of…

Mage-craft and my initial thoughts.

I’m in yer base, Izzie, nom’ing on your post counts… and making comments on the Mage Preview posted recently. Original info can be found here, and for simplicity sake, I’m going to follow the same format used by Izzie.http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=24262357286&sid=1 Flame Orb (81): ++ Another button that a fire mage will have to press in our…

More Class Preview Babble.

In light of all this Cataclysm class info, there’s been a lot of talk about. Xero’s chiming in with his mage response tomorrow, and I’m going to try to coerce Lizzie to do a write up on Priests. I might also do a Lock/Rogue post since I’ve played both classes to 80. Until then, though,…

Shaman Changes, Thoughts…

For the sake of room, I’m leaving out descriptions. They can be found easily here:http://www.mmo-champion.com/news-2/cataclysm-class-preview-shaman/ My thoughts, (Resto Bias) Primal Strike (available at level 3):–Kudos, Melee shaman have been needing a boost to make leveling Enhance worthwhile. A simple but powerful change. Healing Wave (level 4): –Although this is starting to feel a little too…

Pre-thoughts on Patch 3.3.3

As always, I’m behind, but I finally got around to reading the PTR notes (and planning on testing out this new BG system hopefully before it goes live.) It undeniably has a big feel of being the first big step towards setting WoW up for the next expansion. Now, many are thinking this means Cata…

The Female Characters of WoW and why they need work…

The way females are portrayed in video games is a long standing hot-topic that never fails to get the attention whores a-yappin’ while the majority of the gaming community just rolls their eyes in exasperation. That being said, it’s always a fun conversation to have among peers; you’ll have five people arguing and six different…
