Guest on TNB Roundtable

Was recently invited to my first Roundtable on TNB – it was wonderful wonderful fun. Topic: Whatever!

The guests were of a particularly high caliber, and folks who I have read for a while (and I was chuffed to be asked):

Follow us all on Twitter: @stoppableforce @ladygypsy @theelitists @typhoonandrew and @daewin

We covered the following topics:

  • Masteries in Cataclysm, what are they?
  • Progressive “nerfication” of Raids (the buff that is being rolled out monthly)
  • The Purpose of a Guilds
  • The Perfect Random Dungeon group
  • Are Addons a Critical Tool or Crutch

Go download and listen, it was a blast!

What is Mastery?

Mastery is a hot topic all over the wow blogs and websites at the moment. After reading a series of threads, and a lot of player conjecture – here is my quick definition:

Mastery: will be a passive increase to your current form/stance/spec’s role. Do not expect it to define the specs, expect it to enhance it. It will be present on level 81+ gear, will change when your role does, and is still very much being worked out.

TL;DR = It’s a passive buff, subject to change; so worry about it 1-2 weeks after Cataclysm expansion is released, when the Theory-crafters have sussed it.

Threads:

The wow.com one contains back links to all their class and spec related posts, and all sorts of goodies which are also moot at the moment.
