A change in paradigm

Do you play World of Warcraft?  If so, why? This is a post which eventually will be about the changes recently announced regarding raiding in Cataclysm.  I want to leave that question hanging over what follows, as I take a sort of lengthy dawdle along the path of why we do what we do in … Continue reading

Elemental stats: Haste caps and relativity
