  • Sometimes I have to believe that there is some sort of cosmic consciousness that reaches out and affects the minds of the population. Kirstie Alley has long been a frequent flyer in the Loading... column. I have picked on Kirstie dozens of times regarding her weight. Kirstie herself has done the same thing, starring in the the television show "Fat Actress". For whatever reason, I'll chalk it up to cosmic consciousness I received 11, count 'em 11 e-mails about my innocuous comment that our WoW DB was growing faster than Kirstie Alley at an all-you-can-eat buffet. Most of the letters were very well written, non-offensive and simply pointed out that perhaps making fun of someone's weight wasn't a nice thing to do. Others pointed out that Kirstie Alley had lost much of her excess weight and that I should be applauding her, not poking fun at her.

    "We should celebrate those who accomplish such feats. Talk about an epic quest! -- Laura from Kansas "

    These people are right. It isn't very nice, but I never purported to be nice. Nonetheless, they were letters written with emotion and I appreciate them. They took the time to let me know that they disagreed with me, and did it in a civil manner. I replied to them all. Thanking them for their letters and asking them if there was a way I could poke fun without offending them. I considered myself BoomJekyll as I wrote my replies.
    I also received an e-mail that had it been sent in pre-computer days would have arrived comprised of individual letters cut out of the newspaper and magazines, much like a ransom note. Keeeerazy!!!!!
    My reply to the ransom note, Vin Diesel, four new MMOG articles and much more are but a click away.

  • Zul'Gurub Boss Guide Update - Hakkar

    Many of the boss strategies have changed drastically since the initial release of Zul'Gurub. Over time we have updated most of the guides and today thanks to one of our readers, the Hakkar guide got its turn.

    Hakkar's first life drain is at 90 seconds into the fight. At about 45 seconds until the life drain a Son of Hakkar must be sheeped on the center boards with a mark above his head waiting to be slaughtered. Before 15 seconds until the life drain the Son must be killed and everyone must get poisoned by the poison cloud quickly and move quickly back into their positions to avoid Corrupted Blood hitting the entire raid. The only person that doesn't get poisoned is the tank with aggro, that person must keep Hakkar away from the gathered raid. A Son of Hakkar needs to be on the platform and sheeped 45 seconds before every life drain.

  • Warforged updates

    Turbine continues to gear up for the release of Module 3 in October. At DDO Ten Ton Hammer, we're making sure we've provided the most accurate information to date. We're redesigning our race introduction portals to give you the best, most relevant data. Tonight's spotlight is on the warforged.

    "In the end, any warforged character would be wise to invest in a level or two of wizard so that it can heal itself. In fact, warforged might just be a good choice for classic Dungeons & Dragons multiclass characters such as the rogue/wizard and the fighter/wizard."
