All the World's a Stage: Sacrificing spells for the story {WoW}

Aug 11th 2008 9:49PM When I roleplay, I go around this problem by basing my roleplaying character around his skills and talent tree. Why is he in deep assassination? That's cause he is an assassin, that's why. That's also why he will never lift a sword, and will always stay in deep assassination.

Of course, that one does get me alot of flack from rogues who had long jumped into the Shadowstep bandwagon.

Encrypted Text: A Rogue's guide to battleground PvP {WoW}

Jul 31st 2008 11:37PM The only time you should shiv spam is to ensure that the bloody resto druids don't get away, or as an oh no combo generator against the sod who is using evasion. Do not rely upon it as your main attack.

Season three: The reckoning {WoW}

Jun 24th 2008 5:29AM That's kinda because Blizzard's focusing a bit too much into 5v5 arenas in the push to make WoW arenas an e-sport. Notice how every check and balance they made seems to really mess up the other areas? Like immortal resto druids in WSG for example?

Also, because of so much attention placed on 5v5, the other parts receive less of the much deserved attention as well.

Ask a Lore Nerd: The Evil-o-Meter {WoW}

Jun 16th 2008 12:07AM Easy, he directs the Scourge from the un-comfort of his frozen throne. A king does not need to budge.

Also, nice view from the top of Icecrown Citadel.

Blizz updates Death Knight site {WoW}

May 20th 2008 9:12PM But will those weapons come with visible runes on them?

Encrypted Text: Roleplaying as a rogue {WoW}

May 15th 2008 9:10PM I play an undead rogue and made him a Deathstalker. He merely does things because it's his job. Obviously, his job is to go into an area, seek out a target, have him terminated, leave immediately for extraction. He only terminates really important targets, either known leaders, medical support personnels and 'artillery' personnels.

He is also a Black Operative, so he sometimes terminate sensitive targets. Like that player who roleplays an Argent Dawn leader who is biased towards the Alliance and somewhat anti-Forsaken for example.

And he never says what he is up to. 'Classified information'.

All the World's a Stage: Descriptions done right {WoW}

May 12th 2008 3:48AM My descriptions only mention what you would had seen on my character. I also included descriptions that is not present on my character, but I feel is reasonable enough to mention without making it seem game breaking. Like my undead rogue having a small build and a permanent frown. I also produce two profiles with two descriptions. When my rogue's in his combat gear, he is obviously on 'job' mode and his entire demeanor changes. Not to mention wearing masks means nobody should be able to see his complexion. When he is in his city gear, his entire demeanor is changed as well, and no masks this time, so another description for that.

I do not agree with the idea of putting title in description. Shouldn't that go under nicknames? I mean, if I took a glance at you, I don't see your title plastered on your tabard. Also, do not display physical features that is supposed to be concealed. If you have a tattoo on your back, I shouldn't be able to see it unless you are topless, no?

All the World's a Stage: Background story {WoW}

May 4th 2008 9:04PM My character's backstory already has a resolution: He killed his family, and he has been wanting to do that for over 16 years. All that's left after becoming undead is to avoid any evidence from that deed from surfacing. However, there's also that feeling of 'so, I had done something I had been dying to do (ha ha!) for a really long time now. What's left?'. That is now his motivation, finding his place in the grand scheme of things.

Ever surprise yourself? {WoW}

Apr 30th 2008 11:10PM I tried our a warlock just a week ago and got myself a voidwalker. And so, I was doing this Scarlet Crusade quest in Tirisfal and the sudden spawns (a mage was there just a while ago) ruined my plans for completing the quest. Needless to say, I had 8 on me.

However, I managed to DoT every single one of them, used Healthstones, Fears, yada yada yada and took down six of them and nearly killed 7 (voidwalker died. I didn't have health funnel). I completed the quest, I just need to get my corpse back. However, I was surprised on just how well I took on those eight Scarlet Crusade mobs.

I know warlocks are powerful, but that was just plain 'wow'.

Forum Post of the Day: Player tries to scam GM for epic flight training, gets shut down {WoW}

Apr 14th 2008 8:40PM Think of that as public shaming. If the scammer tries to scam again and again despite Blizzard already giving him a hint that they know exactly what he is up to, all the privacy courtesies are out of the window if that is all it takes to get him to keep his tongue back in his mouth and go and earn gold like everyone else.
