The Weekly Marmot - Dealing with RNG
2011/03/15 at 4:49 PM
Tank dead? Blame the RNG. Got stuck in the fire? Blame the RNG. Burnt your pizza? Yeah, total RNG fail. Right guys? Right?
Yeah, no. Let's talk this one over a bit. This week, I talk about how dying to random happenstance is... well, still your fault. Buckle up kids; let's do this thing:
The Weekly Marmot - Taking out the Trash
2011/03/01 at 4:04 PM
This week's discussion centers around "equally interesting yet non-epic-dropping non-bosses", otherwise referred to as "trash mobs". Why are they there? Are they just there to be a time sink? Or are there actually some real benefits to having trash in a raid instance?
The Weekly Marmot - Raid Leading: A Crash Course + PST Episode 17
2011/02/22 at 4:05 PM
This week I take a direct stab at the question, "HOW DO I LEAD RAID?" I look at some of the most important responsibilities of a good raid leader, and what you can do to set yourself apart as the guy everyone wants to listen to. Ever finished a raid and felt like you've just been through the worst several hours of your life? Might wanna give this one a look!
Check out this week's Weekly Marmot, as well as last weeks PST (oops) after the break!
The Weekly Marmot - Patch 4.0.6
2011/02/09 at 7:04 PM
This week we got a little somethin'-somethin' called Patch 4.0.6. So, of course, I need to take some time and talk about it. I break down some of the more important changes in this patch and give a little bit of insight and HEY GUYS RET BUFFS WOOOOOOOOO
The Weekly Marmot - How Addons Alter Game Design
2011/02/01 at 1:18 PM
This week, we look at addons from a little bit different of a perspective than usual. Instead of looking at what addons can do to affect the way you play directly, I get into some behind-the-scenes discussion of how addons change the way the developers have to approach their design of things like class and encounter balance. Does allowing players to create addons like DBM hurt the game? Or is there actually some benefit?
The Weekly Marmot - Raiding and Dual Specs
2011/01/25 at 3:42 PM
This week, I talk about utilizing dual specs properly in your raid. Not just from an "oh crap all our heals are afk cookies" perspective, but how to use that flexibility on a more regular and "official" basis in order to strengthen your guild, how to make sure the dual specs you're using are gearing up effectively, and what it all means for the pure DPS classes!
