THIS WEEK’S DISCUSSION TOPIC:


Are mods making the game too easy?  Everyone uses mods like DBM Grid, Healbot.  Do these things make the game so easy now people don’t even need to think?  Should Blizzard add these mods to WoW by default like they did with Questhelper and others?

NEXT WEEK’S DISCUSSION TOPIC:


What new abilities/talents would you like to see introduced in this next expansion, what shortcomings, if any, do you feel Blizzard should try to address?
