    Computer security and WoW

    Hi Lore,

    I appreciate your intentions, but your advice on computer security is not technically sound, sorry. The person with the question had reasonable cause to worry.

    I like what Ire said above regarding our attention "cup". My approach to addons is mostly the same.

    Usually I raid without DBM, meaning I don't have t installed myself. I guess the raid leader or...

    There's a question that wasn't asked directly, but it's probably important and I've seen both points of view already in the thread. The question is:

    The following are zero-fun choices. They're equivalent to saying "I want to be a tank" and might as well be folded into defensive stance or protection mastery:

    Committed casual tank here. We do 10-man raids, we're experienced, but we don't put in the kind of effort to be cutting edge. I used to tank more in BC than in Wrath because in Wrath I find it...

    In Wrath both gem slots and tier bonuses have been over budget. Is that a problem that needs fixing, and why? Personally I like the existence of these over budget items so I can say "Oh, all these...

    I'd be interested to see how warriors and paladins value Dodge, Parry, and Block in Cataclysm. I can see another debate of the size of "EH vs. avoidance" coming, which would be a good thing of course.

    We can talk about whether the buff is necessary or unnecessary, but if it's simply unnecessary it's neither good nor bad.

    The buff is equivalent to gearing up past ICC. There's no place to get gear superior to ICC until cataclysm, so instead we get a buff. Beating ICC heroic with the buff is like beating Ulduar hard...

    I think Blizzard tend to over-fix things. Examples:

    Problem: Raids are hard to get into/ready for.
    Solutions: Badges, dungeon finder, tier-on-badges, heroic epics, BoE, 10/25, easy normal modes....

    I don't like the "critical roles" idea. At best it's something like "sheep/kite that add". Stressful, but at least in line with your class. At worst it's "click that cube", something that avoids...

    Blizzard tends to over-fix things. There's a genuine problem, but then they spring several solutions at us. In this case badges, VoA, heroic epics, tier-on-badges, BoE drops, BoE crafted, 10/25...
