the latest World of Warcraft newsletter from Ten Ton Hammer.
The Overpull, where we gather most of the things we should and
few we probably shouldn't.

In this section
we'll look at the hits and misses taking
place in the

morose "Oh great" emanates from the crowd that wears black. You know
the kind. They hang out smoking clove cigarettes sucking the souls out
of passerbys. They DOT everyone up with periodic sighs of disgust at
happy people, often using quotes from the Cure. Yes, we're talking
about Warlocks. In the latest href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/70722">Warlock
with Ghostcrawler, it appears that Blizzard will finally be giving the
'locks some attention. I love playing my Warlock, but ever since melee
become so fun, it's been difficult to go back to the delicate
destroyer. I hope they address Locks like they addressed Paladins, of
course then I'll be screaming for nerfs on those cloth-wearing chaos

Another big news item is that Blizzard likes the word Cataclysm. They
like it so much they filed for a trademark on it. The odds on favorite
for Blizzard's use of this new trademark is for the next WoW expansion.
Many people (myself included) believe that the Maelstrom is going to
play a big part of the next go around. As we all know, Cataclysm is
used in conjunction with the Sundering which caused the Maelstrom. See
how that all goes together? My first thought was that Blizzard would be
using Cataclysm in their unnamed MMO - which I believe will be on the
iPhone and include a story about a boy and his kitten, but WoW is much
more likely after looking at the factors.

This week's
memorable blue posts:

Pet Talent Trees on Armory

Armory update, now with more data to mine! Min/Maxers rejoice, I'm sure
we'll get some nice representations of the best pet builds across all
servers soon. At some point the Armory will have a window that allows
you to watch the character being played live. Hey, I may be on to

it ain't broke, then fix it.

The joy of seeing the note "Instance Full" or equivalent is quite
frustrating. Is everyone now in the same instance as opposed to how it
was in Burning Crusade? I'm not seeing that type of player
concentrations in specific areas that would seem to warrant such
controls. I understand that this was done to preserve the playability
of the instance, but I went five years without seeing that message. I
sure could go a few more before I see it again. Dude, go get a
Dell and
fire up another instance machine.

of Overpull, did you catch Nathan's Annual Hot Dog Eating
Everyone overpulls at Nathan's on July 4th, see exhibit A:

I have so been that guy, but usually not on national television. In
what is becoming a habit, the good Ol' U.S. of A. is back to its
winning ways in the contest. Japan's Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi has
taken home first prize six times, but the last two years Joey Chestnut
has been victorious. This year Joey once again prevailed and
illustrated that the U.S. is truly the home of champion eaters. We are
so proud. Why don't we ever read about these guys being WoW players?
It's always baseball guys, football guys and maybe an occasional actor.
Professional eaters seem to be much more in tune with my lifestyle than
those pretty celebrity prancers.

It's that time again. Time for everyone to pick up their pitchforks and
start discussing the downfall of WoW. It always starts small, "Hey,
this Aion game is pretty cool." Which leads to "I think I've found my
new game, screw Blizzard and screw WoW!" In a short time, this
invariably leads to, "Guys, can I get invited back into the guild?"
Today's href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/70822">Geeked
hits it on the head. The WoW haters now have a new platform to jump
off, and the rest of us will lose some playing buddies for a while, but
in the end, they'll be back. I have tried almost every MMOG on the
market, and I always come back. You can't eat at your favorite
restaurant every day I guess.

Creating the links above, I almost misspelled Rogues on purpose.
Nothing chaps my hide more than when I see that little swap of
letters to make rouge. Luckily Stow includes my much detested dyslexic
gaffe in the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/70623">Ten
Commandments of Rogues.
If you need a quick refresher on the self-centered nature of our
stealthy little buddies, check out number 2, I mean who can hate

Speaking of cats, I had to check in on how the other hybrids are faring
in the PTR. According to Medawky, "The Druid still continues its reign
as the
complete hybrid class and definitely the most powerful." Apparently he
hasn't been keeping up on current events, as we all know the Paladin is
the most powerful hybrid. I will prove this to him the next time he is
healing and I am tanking and we'll see who can take a punch. Erm, I may
wait until after he is done healing me to illustrate my point. I smell
a bubblehearth. Who's more powerful now? I'll be in Dalaran enjoying
some mailbox dancers, enjoy your repair bill. I'm kidding, he knows I'm
kidding.  You're still going to throw a heal or two my way,

This just in, href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/70831">Tweetcraft
is now available for WoW. What the heck? Why? Bejeweled, sure. Peggle,
absolutely. Twitter? No. I can't keep up with all the social networking
crap overflowing in my inbox as it is, why oh why do we need this? I'm
having a vision:

{Tank}: Pulling in 3...2...1

{Healer}: /tweet Love the inside of this new instance, there
is some
crazy stuff in here! Tank is pulling biggest badass boss ever, I should
get back to it.

{Tank}: Dead, where were the heals?

{Healer}: /tweet The new boss if friggin impossible, don't even come in
here. Anyone looking for a healer, our raid disbanded.
