Walking on Future Winds

In General by Babylonius

Going to be a little melodramatic for a bit, so bear with me. If you want to read the reasons pushing me away from the game, then click the Melodrama tab. It looks like my time with World of Warcraft is winding down. My schedule and life just don’t allow for much time to play, and the game design is …

Simulations: What Are They?

In General by Babylonius

In the pre-Legion days, SimulationCraft, stat weights, theorycrafting, and the like, were reserved for a select few individuals who knew how to use the tools. The information gleaned from these tools was the disseminated to the public, taken as gospel, and rarely questioned except by the most knowledgeable of players. But the times, they are a-changing.

Jerks to Champions and Beyond

In General by Babylonius

Much of this post is inspired by what I’m currently going through managing this site, moderating MMO-Champion’s Monk forums, and working to revive Chi Burst for the Monk community.

In case you somehow missed it: Its been a bit since I updated last since its summer and I’m being super lazy.

Encounter Guides

In General by Babylonius

During Blackrock Foundry I had an idea of a comprehensive guide to each encounter and how to play it as Windwalker. This proved to be exceptionally boring and tedious work to include all the information you would need to know. For Hellfire Citadel I am trying something slightly different.

Padding vs Scumbagging

In General by Babylonius

So a frequent discussion amongst raiders is the difference between doing the best strategy or doing the most damage. Words get tossed around like “padding” and “scumbagging”. These words are typically negative and used to discredit the DPS someone did. Some people consider anything beyond boss damage to be “padding” and or any damage that takes away from the damage …
