I’m a Warlock, but I can Tank, if I Have to, I Guess.

Tank Hard – I’m a Warlock, but I can Tank, if I Have to, I Guess
You want me to let what, exactly, hit me in the face repeatedly?

NB: This has all changed with the removal of the 6% crit reduction for locks and non-prot warriors, this change relegates lock “tanking” to low level mobs or purely spell based bosses. If you are reading this and would like me to do a full on guide for the kind of tanking we can now do, please let me know in the comments. It’s going to be extremely situational in progression raiding so I won’t be doing too much on it unless I get some feedback!!!!

Diablo 3 – Class Overview 1

Alright guys, I think that it’s time to stop ignoring the pink elephant standing in the corner of the room.

Yeah, that’s right, Diablo 3. It’s here, it’s out, and with Warcraft in a bit of a stable state while everyone awaits the release of Pandaria, we’re going to be hopping over to the other side of the pond and seeing what life is like in Tristram.

Monk/Brewmaster Abilities Part 2

So last week, we covered a portion of the baseline Monk abilities in the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion.

This week, we’ll be digging a little deeper into the tanking spec of the Monk class, the Brewmaster and looking over some of the signature abilities of the tanking spec and what sort of playstyle we can expect to see from it.

Many of the Brewmaster specific abilities seem geared towards not just a flat reduction of damage like the classes we work with now, but taking the damage dealt to you, dicing it up into more managable chunks instead of the big spikes and setting those up to hit you over time to make it a little easier to keep your health up.

Early Expansion Preparation!

Witness the signs of the coming apocalypse.

There are no more content patches planned to be released in the current iteration of the game.

The rate of subscribers deciding to take a break until the next expansion is released to sort of give themselves a chance to recover from burnout.

There’s a progressive buff in the current dungeon that opens up the content of the final raid dungeon to a wider portion of the population.

All signs that point toward the upcoming release of another expansion.
