[WoW] Making Thok More Melee Friendly

We’ve downed him in the last two weeks, but it’s a really frustrating fight for melee so here are some recommendations to make the fight more friendly to melee.

If you don’t know what the fight is, go look up a guide… jeez.

1. Instead of having Thok gain speed as the pursuit phase goes on, have his fixate slow or snare the target in an incremental manner. This means Thok’s speed does not increase so melee can keep up with him and it still keeps risk on the pursued subject. Yes, they can still use movement cooldowns to help. Again, the fixate gets incrementally more slowing so you still have to end the phase before it becomes unmanageable.

2. Increase the hit box for this mob. It’s not really all that large despite the size of the mob. Durumu had a bigger box *giggle* than Thok does and Thok is far larger. Yes, it encourages people to get closer to hit him… well, melee, range pretty much doesn’t care.

Note: Item 2 need not be done if you do item 1.

Melee happiness increased.

 

 

[PC] Die UPlay

I just bought a game on Steam and now I have to install this UPlay crap with yet another account (on top of EA’s crap Origin platform, Microsoft’s XBox Live account and Apple’s account for iTunes/Store).

I’m going to say this slowly:

I… do… not… want… this… on… my… computer.

In protest, I think I’m going to consider pirated video games from now on and just mail the company the money.

Dear Game Company,

I have been a legitimate software user for a long time now (over 20 years) but recently find myself frustrated at what is required of me to play your game.I already have Steam installed and yet you require I install yet another bit of software that will run on my system for no other purpose than to ensure I’m a legitimate user?

I have decided – in order to reduce my blood pressure, stress and frustrations in dealing with this ‘protection’ you dump on your legitimate users – to down load a pirated copy of your game.

Please find a cheque (that’s how we spell it in Canada) for the box prices of the game.

Cheers.

Me

I won’t lie, it is damn well tempting.

I’m just too much of a good person.

Fuck you.
