The Queue: How much should Adam charge for flasks and pots? {WoW}

May 25th 2010 5:19PM I'd say charge them almost 10 gold over the market price. If they start to whine just tell them that if they don't like it they should come prepared. YOU are the one buying/farming mats for the flasks, that takes money to do and you need to be compensated for the time and effort you put into the flasks(Think of it like a mechanic charging labor fees for him to work on your car). They are the one's who should be bringing their own raiding consumables.

I started charging almost 15 gold over market price and my raiders starting complaining. I told them that if they didn't like it they should farm/buy their own flasks. The next week we had three people with no flasks. We benched them for the week. Ever since everyone's had flasks and/or buff food(We use fish feasts, so I don't complain about food too much).

Tom Chilton explains early WoW class balance (or lack thereof) {WoW}

Mar 5th 2010 5:21PM "But no one really enjoyed running Molten Core. "

As someone who's played since launch as all the roles (healing in Vanilla, ranged and tank in TBC and now a tank/melee in Wrath) I immensely enjoyed running MC. My fiance and I run it now for fun and We take other people through most of the old world raids. MC is the one that people always ask to run again. The only downside to running MC back then was getting 40 people together a quarter of which were mouth breathers and wouldn't know their head from a hole in the ground. That was the only thing I disliked about MC, the zone as itself though was awesome and I wish there were more like it.

Ensidia temporarily banned for exploits {WoW}

Feb 4th 2010 2:44PM While I don't condone what they did, it looks like everyone involved in the kill got the ban. Muqq has always made himself look like an asshat. He's a great shadow Priest, I will give him that, but he needs to come down off his pedestal.

Read this post by Ekyu. It's not a troll post like Muqq's is, and it's fairly informative.

Breakfast Topic: What roles do you play? {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2010 2:49PM Since Vanilla i've played a Healer, Ranged DPS, Melee DPS, and a tank. From my healing days I played a resto druid in vanilla, and TRIED (With much complaining from my guild mates) a shadow priest. TBC I was a shadow priest, Holy pally and Mage. Wrath, I've gone from my Pally tank, to an elemental shammy, back to my Pally Tank.

Having played all the roles, I've pretty observant to what's going on. If I miss something I have my fiance sitting next to me to fill me in.

AddOn Spotlight: EveryQuest {WoW}

Jan 12th 2010 1:21PM Sadly no, I've ran this for the past couple of weeks, and the race/class/profession specific quests will still show up in the log.

I just hit my Loremaster achivement last night, and the Linken line isn't even in the Database for this addon. It is a good add-on for finding quests (There was one in desolace that I had no clue about until yesterday and I've played since Vanilla WoW) It just doesn't have a complete listing of all the quests.

Updatedx3: Urgent maintenance complete {WoW}

Nov 4th 2009 4:37PM @ AeroRising

You obviously were never around at launch when the servers would go down for DAYS at a time.

Yes, they make 15 dollars a month off each of the US subscribers (subscription rates aren't the same all over the world), but you know how much their electric and internet bills are much less the rent for leasing out data centers for the servers to sit at? their Server management for that ALONE is probably in the millions of dollars.

If you don't like the downtime go to your account management, cancel your subscription and go play a free MMO. I doubt you will find any other company that offers them that is as clean as WoW is being kept.

WoW Rookie: What's my DPS? {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2009 3:48PM Couple of things.

A) Target dummies are not a viable DPS gauge. They don't die so you can get them to 1 HP and be overkilling them which will do crap for your DPS.

B) You CAN get weapon skill off white damage, that's why the easiest way to up your weapon skill is go get a low level weapon and go into a semi easy low level dungeon and just auto attack stuff till you're high enough.

and C) You can't get weapon skill off the dummies. Blizz made sure that trigger wasn't there so you didn't have people going after the weapon skill achivement sitting there for hours on end auto attacking the dummies getting weapon skill.

Breakfast Topic: The great Battle.net merge {WoW}

Oct 13th 2009 2:13PM I've been playing this game damn near since it launched almost five years ago. I have NEVER EVER EVER gotten hacked. I merged my account to a battle.net a few days after it was available and haven't had an issue. Also, I don't have an authenticator.

Be smart in where you browse, check the remember account name box on the login in screen, and don't play on someone elses machine. God knows what kind of crap they have infected on it, Stay away from internet cafe's. . . they like a freaking hotspot for key loggers. And don't give your information to anyone, not even your best friend.

I have a laptop for all my browsing. I don't do anything related to my account on it. I run a virus scan on it every other day and it's found MAYBE one piece of spyware/maleware on it.
