    On a completely other note though, the blatant fanservice does irritate me, in games like oblivion (just ignore the hundreds of mods) female characters look great with more than just a thong. Kind of sucky that the plate bikini is the standard for female clothing in games.

    I didn't like the stereotypes in medieval fantasy lit either. I mean sure, pay homage to the genre, but if every female is a hopelessly passive Yamato Nadeshiko and every guy is a Herculean behemoth it just gets stale.

    Great skill in the fan art but they all make me want to vomit...as usual.

    The Sylvanas fan art is pretty cool. The other two are a little over the top. Does anyone know if there's any place at all where I could buy stuff like this? I've always wanted to buy prints of WoW artwork, frame it and decorate the house with it (the lady friend is a bigger WoW fan than myself, so it would fly). Have had 0 luck with google. It needs to be allowed!

    This is my favorite part of the "Wheel of Time" (and before you start, yes there are also many things to dislike about the "Wheel of Time", this just happens to be a thing I *do* like), the strength of the female characters and the way each sex's and culture's ideas of gender "roles" are constantly being kicked around. Jordan pokes a lot of fun at sex roles and how people from both sexes see themselves, other members of their sex, and members of the opposite sex.

    Ok, nitpicking. How about shammy draenai then ? In lava pool ? Dressed for combat or mail bikini show ?

    Oh I don't care about that stuff. I agree that is over the top lol I was just defending only sylvanas as a sex symbol, she is one of my favorite characters.

    No problem with that, i like that picture a lot too
    Just saying many like it just becouse its "naked" woman. Imagine a man there instead. Or robot. It wouldnt be the same.
    Its like some add on leather sofa i saw few weeks ago. Would it sell (drag attention) if there was only sofa ? Probably. Would it if there was "naked" woman lying on the sofa ? Very likely. This dragging women into adds becouse of sex and symbols to sell something ... its not that bad, but you should really know the limit - what is tasteful

    Blizzard needs to give proper props to whoever did the fanart this week.

    This is one seriously talented artist, I'd remember the name if it was displayed... and it should.

    (edit: It's visible on the blizz site, only missing from mmo-champ)

    "Let healers DPS in Cataclysm?
    Ideas that would make healing more fun are good things to discuss in this forum, particularly with an eye towards Cataclysm.

    The idea to let healers dps a little is a controversial one though. Some healers just have no interest in it, so while it might make healing a lot more fun for you, it risks making healing a lot less fun for them. I would not approach that idea as an obviously intuitive one that all healers will rally around, because I suspect that's just not the case.

    [...] I could see that if the tree was structured in such a way that you had to give up a little bit of healing for that dps (and to be fair, talents like Searing Light already exist), such that it was the kind of thing you might do while soloing or running easy content (like Dungeon Finder when overgeared). In other words, I wouldn't want us to do it in such a way that healers were then balanced around doing damage -- like we calculated healer damage when we come up with boss berserk timers. Then it goes from a playstyle choice to being the only way to play. "

    People who have seen me most know my repsonse to this. They already had it in BC shockadin. Primarily a healer, but could defend itself in pvp and in heroics without much CC used could do well on the damage meters because of high consecrate damage. However, in no way (because of instant OOM and large threat issues) a raid damage dealer, and I think they had the balance perfect with BC shockadin or the week they ghave us shockadin back in April with the original exorcism change only to give us shockadin nuts virtual blue balls in the largest cock tease in the history of wow. Simply make exocism a gauenteed instant via talent mid/deep holy tree so ret couldn't get it or make judgement of righteousness scale high the way it used to in such a way ret woudn't get undue use of it. Primarily a healer, able to defend itself and do a little damage in pve like 5 mans but not a raid dps at all. That perfect balance they had would be welcomed back and in no way OP to real dps.

    Not sure how to pull off that balance with other healer classes but they had it perfect with Shockadin.

    Re: Cryptozoic acquires WoW TCG, Blue posts, Fan Arts

    Wow, I'm suprised at the talk about the fanart. Sylvanas wears that same armor, the only difference is that the thighs aren't showing. Here's a little secret, Alexstraza wears the same armor as sylvanas, but WITH the thighs showing, and she isn't even an elf, she's a dragon! AND she does it by choice because she thinks it's the smexy-est look of all the mortal races, go figure... (this was blizzard's idea too, not the fan artists) blame the fan art all you want, but they are the ones drawing art of something that was already sexualized by blizzard.

    Really, in these games, men are ungodly strong and women are ungodessly curved. Fantasy genres have always hyper-sexualized characters of both sexes (and by both, I mean both, replace the females with the originals... they are still stupidly strong looking and illidan still fights with no shirt on), so get over it and enjoy the fact that the artists are still really talented even if they choose to use rule 63 as their base of operations; people bitching about it are just as sad as the people drooling at it, they are just at opposite ends of extremes.
