Unbearably HoT

Constructive Reconsideration.

Posted by in Cat, Feral, Rant

As I started writing this article, Wintersdark responded to yesterday’s piece with the following: I’d like to see other classes able to get great dps when handled as masterfully as a cat putting out consistently astounding numbers. Exactly! Part of the fun in Feral DPS is the challenge the rotation affords—and I’d hate to see it go. While it’s possible to tune down our damage while simultaneously simplifying our cycles, why not step up everyone’s game and put them to the test? Sorry, I’m dreaming again.

Don’t nerf me, bro.

Posted by in Feral, Rant

A note before reading: apparently any sort of discussion that in any way discusses nerfs now classifies as “nerd-raging.” This is not an angry rant whatsoever; do yourself a favor and don’t read it as such.

Posted by in Guide, Rant

Noblegarden is spectacular—a true vision of Azeroth at its finest. I only had to snag my first egg from the cotton-tailed clutches of a Hunter-turned-rabbit to receive a stream of grammatically incorrect vitriol. I love this. First of all, I’m terribly sorry that you can’t click as quickly as I can. Second, I’m disappointed that your retorts are neither clever nor funny. Third, you have only inspired me to poach as many eggs from you as I possibly can while simultaneously reporting and throwing you on ignore. That’s beside the…read more
