    Being an asshole doesn't project intelligence either.

    Heh. I'm currently finishing up my 6th and 7th degrees - a masters of science in commerce, and a post-graduate diploma in international trade. Those are day to day words for me - because I spend all day analyzing data for my dissertation. It becomes a useful skill when some respondents present a mountain of empirical evidence and analysis - versus somebody who tries to respond with their personal anecdotal bullshit ;p

    Please, don't tell me you're doing a thesis on "complicated statistical number analyed data evaluations calculated under advance number data"?

    Cause a drunk parrot living on the dark side of the moon clearly points out flaws related to the use of empirical data over assumptions. Cause according to said parrot no such thing as confirmation bias exists and all data contradicting ones own opinion must be false!
    (Hence anecdotal assumptions / data must be superior to all available empirical evidence)

    Nah, my dissertation was originally on some really boring adjustments to oldschool economic theory (international fisher effect) - but I got tired of writing that and swapped to doing best practices of the PC video game industry! Still, it turns out to involve a lot of numbers and SPSS - but at least I get to do something tangentially related to a passion - rather than something that might have been a better academic contribution, but would be embarrassingly dull to explain at cocktail parties (does anyone actually have these? but you get the idea).

    It used to, but warlock tears are so rare these days I had to switch to piss & vinegar. Still tasty tho.

    Warlock tears these days are from tears of joy, the extra sugar ruins most recipes .

    Playing my Warlock after playing my SPriest for as long as I have kind of feels like getting behind the wheel of a really nice SUV. A really nice SUV that doesn't give a single fuck about avoidable raid damage and will absolutely decimate anything in a 20 yd radius in front of me.

    And if you ever need a real laugh, just check the Warlock forums. The biggest fear of Warlocks in WoD? They might be as bad as Shadow is currently.

    That would be so delicious, even more delicious than a warlock tear sandvhich. Imagining them shaking at the inevitable WoD nerfhammer ever so slowly floating towards them will keep me entertained until then. *whistles and prepares barrels for a bountiful tear harvest*

    I hope mages get hit with the nerf hammer too (mage tears are tasty as well). I'm tired of outplaying the mages on my team, but them doing 50, 60, 70k more dps and then having them constantly go "why do we have a shadow". Something is just wrong when the mage dot uptimes are in the 70s and 80s and yours are in the 90s and they still out dps you. I know mages aren't dot classes, but IMNSHO, how well they can maintain say living bomb says a lot about how good a player they are.

    It's actually gonna be the other way around: For some reason they're getting the MoP warlock treatment. And yes, you have to try hard to be bad on a mage.

    A friend of mine told me she was once watching her friends twitch stream, and her friend was tanking (H Thok) and he, mid-fight, started showing off his new gaming mouse. As in, held it up to the camera and was like, "look at all the pretty buttons" before going "oh, right, pick up bats".

    If only we had such luxury!

    Yes, single target damage is mediocre on a good day, sadly

    I still enjoy SP for the utility it brings to a raid - void shift, grip and those nice off heals! ~ I love seeing my PoM bouncing around; it gives me the feeling like I'm helping, even though I am just a sea weed in an ocean of holy priests

    It's getting close to a year of SoO. If you're not on the cutting edge of progression, your class won't matter. 99% of the time you are getting sat is because you are not up to par skill wise. People out gear any content so badly at this point that it doesn't matter what class you bring. There's no real point to complain our numbers, it's a waste of time. People should be looking forward to warlords now, not complaining about something that won't change.

    I think balance changes will be made significantly easier with most of our healing utility gone. I'm very much so looking forward to warlords.

    Too soon to call. I highly doubt I won't play my priest though.
