it amazes me that you can't already see the thread about this under active topics.
Except that thread is in the shaman forum for unknown reasons.

  • Presence of Mind When activated, your next Mage spell with a casting time less than 10 sec becomes an instant cast spell. This spell is not on the global cooldown.and is unaffected by Alter Time. Mage - LvL 15 Talent. Instant. 1.5 min cooldown.

Cool another nerf for Mages.  Our damage wasn't enough  now it's our CC.

I just don't see how with all the broken ass instant CC in this game POM has been nerfed twice now, before all of the other bullshit.

#3909448 Release date for Radeon 8 series?

Posted Intension on 06 July 2013 - 11:24 PM

8000 series will be rebranded 7000 for laptops. The 9000 series might come out somewhere around October.
Kinda agree that AMD makes better price/performance ratio than Nvidia, both have their ups and downs obviously.

#3899890 clapping at the cinema

thinking way too hard on this.  it's just fucking gay honestly.  it doesn't bring happiness to the atmosphere; it just makes you look like an asshat and everyone reacts and think "wow what an asshat"

"Wow, that guy is fucking clapping at the end of the movie. Who does he think he is, smiling and clapping like that alongside his friends and a large portion of the movie theater who happened to enjoy the movie? I bet he sucked 5 dicks before and during the movie. What a douchebag."

Sorry, but I think that post was 5 times more autistic than clapping at a movie theater will ever be.

can you believe this guy? i mean who does he think he is? some kind of elite intellectual?

It has nothing to do with being an intellectual. The fact that discussing the futility and the pointlessness of judging such benign actions warrants being branded as an "intellectual" is fucking pathetic honestly.

Who gives a shit? At least it's appropriate, and that you can understand WHY they're clapping. Theaters of all kinds have been centers for applause because people LOVE to express their appreciation for a good piece, whether it's a play, a concert, or even a movie (where the tradition continued). It's not the act of one person clapping that's important, it's the combined ensemble of plaudits and praise that draws people to the social aspect of clapping.

I never clap, and I haven't noticed people clapping that obnoxiously to anger me in such a way, but honestly, I haven't seen a good movie recently outside of home. And clapping alone is just... awkward as you put it. Clapping and applause is a social action, and that is why it's done.

What about during a world premiere of a movie? Usually the actors/directors/other cast are there. Is it acceptable to clap then?

At first, I was thinking "how can somebody be this idiotic and illiterate?", but then I realized who the poster I was responding to was, and why any response I make will always be in vain.

#3894777 HDMI or VGA?

Posted Maleficent on 04 June 2013 - 12:54 AM

Hook the HDMI from your video/graphics card from your computer to the port on the monitor, simple stuff of course. I personally use Steelseries 7h's and they pick up audio fine.

I hope all of this makes sense. :P

It should work.

#3894835 HDMI or VGA?

Posted Hyuru on 04 June 2013 - 06:57 AM

Pretty much what Pharaun said, the only difference between DVI and HDMI is that HDMI carries sound.

I bought a new monitor (BenQ XT2420T) and it came with a DVI and HDMI cable. There are only DVI ports on my PC and no VGA. I have an adapter so I could use VGA if I wanted to.

Would it work if I used the DVI cable? Would I run into issues or get a crappy picture quality? I've always ever used VGA.
I'm confused.  If you have dvi on the computer, and dvi on the monitor, just use that.  DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort are all going to give equivalent picture quality (barring some weird high end talk about 12bit color that I know nothing about).

#3894653 HDMI or VGA?

Posted Maleficent on 03 June 2013 - 07:17 PM

I currently use HDMI on my monitor but used VGA previously and the difference in quality is not that different; if I remember correctly, the biggest difference is that HDMI carries audio and video but DVI is video only leaving your audio dependent on other sources.

If you had the money, invest in a graphics card with a HDMI ports.

#3893868 Resil is probably better than you currently think

Posted Veev on 01 June 2013 - 05:53 AM

I just finished redesigning my spreadsheets for hunter/warrior/warlock, and was a bit surprised at how effective resilience still is.  The spreadsheet can be found here: www.veevsvault.com/files/veevs-pvp-spreadsheet.xlsx (if you don't have Excel, you can download it and upload it to Google spreadsheets, but I don't wish to myself since it butchers the functionality)

Even if you're not a hunter/warrior/warlock, you may find some of the information on it helpful.  The resilience formula was actually changed in 5.3, and after a lot of trial and error I determined it to be the following:

Damage Reduction = 0.65 + 0.35*(Resilience/(Resilience+23133))
(The 23133 number is accurate to plus or minus 9 points.)

After patch 5.3, it seems like a lot of people (myself included) have been falsely assuming that resil is no longer worth gemming for, due to it being cut in half on gems without any other real gain.  But for warriors, for example, it is actually easier to achieve 1% damage reduction through gems than it is to achieve 1% damage gain.  It seems that hunters and warlocks still benefit more from gemming damage, but the point is that it is actually very close, close enough where personal preference should probably decide which you go for.

So to all the complaints of one shots and such, realize that resil is still a very viable option.  If you are a blacksmith and were to go full resilience gems, completely ignoring all socket bonuses (not really recommended), then with a resil chest enchant and PvP meta you could reach 2895 resilience.  This translates into 68.89% damage reduction, which means you would take 11.12% less damage than someone with base resil.  Fairly significant, especially if more people start gemming like that, since that means damage would go down by about the same amount.  If you are a blacksmith and gem for full resil without ignoring socket bonuses, you would have 2415 resil, which is 9.45% less damage than someone with base resil.

Please feel free to play around with changing resil values and such on the spreadsheet, to get an idea of how effective it may be for you.  And while, unfortunately, I don't have enough time to try and generate stat weights for all of the different classes and specs, you can take a look at the three present and get a rough idea of how it might translate to your class.  (Pay close attention to the "gem values" for both resil and your highest DPS stat, to determine which is more beneficial.)

Also, please feel free to review my math and logic and look for any errors.  I think it's all sound and good, but I'm not a math major, and I love being proven wrong.

why are you trying to say that everyone who quits wow suddenly spends a ton of money? i quit and i saved money. i bought 2 extremely good games for £5 each that together gave me over 2 months of fun. there's also a ton of free games you can try.
go try one of the countless free mmorpgs and maybe you'll find one of them ok.




aren't so bad imo.

i have to say though that http://www.ageofconan.com/ was the most impressive one and it has more gore/nudity than any other mmorpg you'll find. the cool thing about it though is the combat system.

I never said that everyone spends a ton of money.  I said that I have and was asking if this has happened to anyone else.
