Se7en Tidbits: “Raid Leader’s Resume” or “St. George is Overrated!”
Here are a few tidbits that caught my attention for one reason or another this week:
- “And while we’re at it, why is it that I spent an entire controller-crushing hour trying to figure out that one level in the puzzle game Braid before giving up and then nailing it on the first try after a good night’s sleep?” Jamie Madigan discusses how ample sleep helps us play video games better.
- “It’s a quad-core with a nice graphics card in it, 8GB of RAM, Blu-ray player and a 1TB hard drive. That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.” In other news, Syp gets a new PC, and Bronte gets jealous.
- “In most combat, speed plays a very important part in the outcome. If you can’t catch or hit an enemy, it will be very difficult to defeat them.” Werit discusses the important of speed in and Warhammer PvP, and maintains his position as the only blogger who has me nearly convinced to pick up the MMO. Nearly.
- “The argument about whether people should put WoW on their job applications is one that has been doing the rounds for awhile, but how about raid leading as experience for running your own business?” Spinks talks about an article that explores the question above. Can I finally tell my boss I led one of two teams in the history of the Eitrigg server that defeated C’Thun?
- “St George kills one lousy dragon and gets a day of national holiday in his memory. I’ve killed hundreds of dragons, and all I have to show for it is this miserable +1 sword and bag full of vendor-trash drake toenails.” That is actually the entire post from Melmoth over at Killed in a Smiling Accident!
- “The other advantage that the Holy build has is that you can cast Beacon on Valithria and add extra healing to the raid. I’ve found that doing this is valuable at the very end of the fight, keeping the raid from being overrun.” Coriel discusses a little experiment that I will now attempt the next time I am in ICC.
- “My point though is as fun as the fight is (it IS an amazingly designed encounter), it just doesn’t feel as epic as I think it should.” Lodur talks about what is missing from the Arthas encounter in ICC.
