  1. Granted, but it's the paperclip from Microsoft Word. - I wish I had a moon base with a giant death ray.
  2. <p>okay so i tried fire and so he turned into a bear a bear that was on fire and then he bit me so then i was on fire and now i think i need medical attention</p>

  3. <p>try fire.</p>

  4. <p>I tried. By the time I'd finished with the last part, the first part had regrown. It was Sisyphean.</p>

  5. <p>Shave Nahr.</p>

  6. I will admit I never bothered using the single-target heals - I just targetted Malygos and went 111114. The combo points still count towards the AoE heal and it frees up some brainspace for paying attention to other things.
  7. They came to Canada once, to protest... uh, Canada, I think. They tried to burn a Canadian flag on Parliament Hill but couldn't get it to light. An RCMP officer came over and showed them how to douse the flag in kerosene and get it to burn safely. He gave them some fire safety tips and encouraged them to have a nice stay in Ottawa. This sort of took the wind out of their sails and they went home. EDIT: Also, revenge fantasies aside, I think murdering American citizens - no matter how annoying they are - at an American soldier's funeral would probably be in really poor taste. Which is probably why it hasn't happened yet.
  8. Interesting theory: I think part of the issue is that - even for people who don't use the forums - this whole thing runs counter to how World of Warcraft works. This is an escape. If you start letting real life intrude, you kill the escape; it becomes another appendage of dull reality.
  9. <p>... we're gonna need a bigger razor.</p>

  10. <p>You realize I have no idea if you respond to me if you respond to me here?</p>

    <p>penalty: shave nahr</p>

  11. <p>Sitting in my drab grey cubicle summons forth the Sparkle within. "Shine!" she commands, "Or, failing that, just stop thinking about PSN links for five minutes."</p>

  12. <p>Working from home today, or does work bring out the inner Sparkle?</p>

  13. Monsters don't have much of a crit rating so you can still be uncrittable pretty easily via resil - which would matter if all you needed to be able to tank was uncrittable. The real problem with tanking in PvP gear is the enormous quantities of avoidance and mitigation that are lost. Relying on stamina to survive the blows just offloads the problem onto the healer. This is fine if the goal is to torture the healer, of course. Although this brings up an interesting thought - defense rating is going away in Cataclysm, but as far as I know, resilience is staying. Uncrittability will be provided via talents. So - will folks be able to save themselves some talent points by slapping on some resil gear instead? Could be interesting.
  14. Nerf pallies - er, wait. Nerf other pallies. Maybe I'm just cranky 'cause I remember tanking for PuGs in BC, and the folks with the big red honor-bought shoulders were also the flaming morons who'd run ahead of the tank and pull with pyroblast. To this day I still look at someone wearing a PvP set in an instance and see a guy wearing a giant "CARRY ME" sign. This may or may not be warranted.
  15. Sorry - yes, you can use resil that way if you're a tank. I was thinking about DPS when I wrote that - it's just wasted ilevel for DPS in an instance. And honestly, if someone's in a set of Furious or Relentless gear, that's actually a nice chunk of PvE stats too - you could certainly pull off healing/dpsing a heroic in that gear if you had to. Point being, though: health alone is not a reliable measure of someone's gear. Although I'm preaching to the choir on that point here.
