Solving Frost's Haste Problem: The Brainstormenating

Tuesday, March 12 2013 at 9:44pm CDT

Some good discussion happened on this topic both in my own previous post on the subject, and in a forum thread I posted today. I wanted to summarize some of the ideas that came out of it to prompt further discussion. I have not reproduced every idea; there were a few that seemed likely to be deemed too complicated to put on a tooltip, and there were a few focused on lifting the Crit cap, something GC has said they don't want to do.

Incommunicado

Tuesday, January 29 2013 at 6:17pm CST

A quick note for those who have tried to contact me or ask me questions, here or via email or on Twitter: I'm not going to be very available for a while. You may see me spouting occasional stuff in a forum or on Twitter, but the vast majority of my brain is currently occupied with closing on a house and moving while preserving both my wife's and my own sanity. When the whole terrible process is complete, I hope to look back on my mail and other channels of communication and get back to people. Until then, please understand, and thanks!

Atheists in Azeroth

Saturday, January 19 2013 at 1:16pm CST

There was a quick discussion on Twitter today about the question of whether or not it's reasonable to roleplay an atheist in World of Warcraft. The general thinking goes: magic is real, and we have tons of eyewitness testimony of the existence of beings such as C'Thun and Yogg-Saron, so it's not reasonable to roleplay a character who just outright denies the existence of these beings.

I disagree.
