We had so much fun with BRK last episode that we invited him back!

Read it yourself.

Now I’d like to take a moment to remind you about how awesome the rest of the announced changes are!

Players will have the ability to rate up or rate down posts so that great topics and replies stand out from the not-so-great; low-rated posts will appear dimmer to show that the community feels that they don’t contribute effectively to the conversation, and Blizzard’s community team will be able to quickly and easily locate highly rated posts to participate in or to highlight discussions that players find worthwhile.

This, alone, is going to make a huge difference. It’s been a long time coming, and will address a large portion of trolling.

Individual topics will be threaded by context, meaning replies to specific posts will be grouped together, making it easier for players to keep track of multiple conversations within a thread. We’re also adding a way for Blizzard posters to “broadcast” important messages forums-wide , to help communicate breaking news to the community in a clear and timely fashion. Beyond that, we’re improving our forum search function to make locating interesting topics easier and help lower the number of redundant threads, and we have more planned as well.

This will make everything more readable.

Honestly, with the exception of their reversed decision to force gamers to use their real names, this was an amazing announcement! Now that they’ve given us what we asked for, we can start focusing on the good parts of the announcement. And resubscribing, right Gnomeaggedon? :P

So aside from community voting and threading, what other ideas do you guys have that would make the forums a better place? Off the top of my head, I suspect forcing people to choose a single character that will show on all their posts would be a good first step. No more anonymous level 1 alts from another server bashing recruitment threads. Additionally, I’d like to see a PM system, maybe integrated with in-game mail.

Hi guys! The non-disclosure has been lifted, and what we know about hunters in Cataclysm’s beta is postable. I’m not in the beta or alpha because I didn’t sign up for it, however my co-host and dwarven chauvinist, Frostheim, has been chewing his tongue trying not to tell us all on the podcast about the cool stuff he was seeing in Alpha.

Well, I’m glad that’s over! He just posted everything we know about hunters so far on his site. Here’s some of my favorite parts: (more…)

Hi folks! This week, Frostheim and Darkbrew discuss the WHU BBQ, some Ghostcrawler quotes about melee abilities in Cataclysm, and a bunch of listener questions and emails.

editor’s note: Please put your hands together again for the newest OutDPS writer, Shadowstreak! You might know of him as the artist for the Frostheim Goggles comic, over at WHU. If not, go check it out- it’s some funny stuff!

There are a few different DoT/Proc timing mods available. They all have their own different pros and cons and different selling points. Some of which might actually influence which one players end up settling with.

Hunters in their own aren’t all about the DoTs. We have Serpent Sting and that’s just about it. Unlike marks hunters with Chimera Shot, its much more vital for survival and BM hunters to track the duration of SS so they can refresh it on their own when it runs low. (more…)

Here is my gold making 101 introduction post. This is a bit of a shift from my regularly scheduled content, but as was eloquently stated in a comment in my last post, “as a raider I need to fund my habit” :)

These posts will be tagged and categorized separately from the regular nonsense firehose aimed at your teacup browsers, and will endeavor to give you the tools you need to make the money you need without resorting to farming or dailies. Without any further ado: (more…)

Buff’d is like Digg or Reddit, but for WOW. It’s awesome! Still in beta (they say they officially launch July 1st) but it’s working mostly for now. I get errors when I try commenting, but I can vote just fine!

Things I like:

  • They offer separate RSS feeds for overall info and by category
  • Someone already submitted one of my guides there! I know, who’d have though people actually read my drivel?
  • Unlike other link lists, the content here is purely driven by popularity

[ed: Art from Buff'd dropped by in the comments and clarified a few things, see below for details about how they plan on dealing with trolls]

Things I don’t like:

  • Digg
  • Wow.com comment trolls

You see where the problem lies? If these guys can keep the troll background radiation to an acceptably low level, this will completely change the way I read. If they can’t (trolls are surprisingly well organized and hard to filter), it will degrade to the point that Digg has and become unusable.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
