The Queue: How much Keeffe is in this movie, anyway? {WoW}

Jan 29th 2011 1:01PM A&W, as we don't have a Burger King where I am.

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 3:19PM Oh dear...I think I know exactly what you're talking about. Though could be a different server altogether. That was the 9 levels of hell, without a doubt, regardless.

Breakfast Topic: Which achievement are you most proud of? {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 2:14PM I love my Loremaster title as well and I never take it off in favour of other options.

However, should I ever be able to get ahold of those BLEEPING RACKIN'-FRACKIN' Heavy Junkboxes (like pulling teeth to try and buy any) I need for Ravenholdt rep, I'll be able to guarantee an eventual Insane title (have a scribe alt but boy howdy, is it ever slow....).

If I ever get that finished I'll gladly switch boats and enjoy being the proud 'Insane in the Membrane' holder on my fire-specced mage.

Kinda wish that I hadn't spent all that time/money getting Shendra'lar rep to exhalted but.../shrug. What're ya going to do?

So, to summarize: the CURRENT achievement I'm most proud of is 'Loremaster'. In the FUTURE, however, that will change to 'Insane in the Membrane'.

WoW Moviewatch: Cloud 9 {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 2:02PM I concur. One gnome that shall escape my Cannibalize just because this was just so bleeping good!

Though I *am* curious now if there are other songs that make a perfect fit (assuming an equal machinima artist talent applied to it) for the other races.

I mean, I see a lot of videos made where the song/parody could use any of the races and it'd be just fine. But this one with a gnome I CANNOT imagine something else taking its place.

A nice dwarven song would be nice as long as it didn't centre around the generic stereotypes (ie alcohol, womanizing, etc).

Patch 4.0.6 PTR: Justice point trade goods prices {WoW}

Jan 20th 2011 9:27PM Sadly, I don't think that would ever happen because when in future content patches the current Valor gear gets bumped down to Justice to make way for the newer gear to purchase, it would be all too easy to just use what would be really cheap (cheap *by then* due to the market dropping out as supply increases) material goods to immediately step into raiding.

Blizzard still wants people to actually run content to prepare for higher and higher content, regardless of if and when it becomes outdated.

The Queue: A ghost story {WoW}

Jan 20th 2011 6:28PM Roombas.

Okay, in all seriousness, though, snakes. Really. What, am I the only one would find a corn snake adorable? People...hmmph. I tolerate peoples' spiders, ant farms and out-and-out RATS but heaven forbid reptiles get involved.

/pout

The Queue: A ghost story {WoW}

Jan 20th 2011 6:08PM Having been someone who has sold hundreds upon hundreds of different things all within a few days of one another (though not popular items that require more than singles at a time, that's just cruel), I can confidently say there doesn't appear to be any real downside besides exiting out and coming back into the mailbox window.

I'll list a huge sum of items, not log on that character again for a few days, come back to check my mail and have NEVER had a problem. Heck, the only thing it really seems to go by is the standard expiration tags.

Cataclysm hotfixes for Jan. 18 {WoW}

Jan 19th 2011 3:25AM I think they mean that people were prospecting ore and happened to come across them along with the normal assortment of gems and such.

WoW Moviewatch: Run Deathwing Run {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 4:37PM I'll admit a very small handful of places jarred me because they disrupted the beautiful flow the rest of it had BUT not so much that it ruined the video for me.

Frankly, I had more problems with that giant, slightly transparent logo at the bottom-left of the screen. Couldn't stop peering back at it every few seconds because it was so distracting. However, again, it didn't ruin the video for me.

A great, big 'Job well done!' to everyone who participated in this project.

Breakfast Topic: What part of you does your character represent? {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 8:38AM My holy paladin (when I still played him) was the part of me that I blamed myself for anything that went wrong, even if I couldn't do anything about whatever it was.

When I switched to my warrior for the latter portion of Burning Crusade, that represented my stubborn side since, as Fury, I had to fight my way into the simplest of heroics because I couldn't CC anything. But man, whenever I got into a heroic MgT run, I felt *AMAZING*!

And then after dedicating myself to help my guild out in WotLK via my paladin again, Ulduar came out and that just sucked my will to live a bit because (though I'm perfectly open to the possibility I was just dead wrong in my perceptions) of people not being able to decide what to really focus on and we had an influx of new people anyway....

So I rolled a death knight on a new server and it, oddly enough, represented my shy nature. I'd be so modest running dungeons that it took a good month or two before this one person who believed right from the start that I was more than competent enough to raid finally was able to convince me that I would be a good fit for his casual raiding guild. I had fun and I gladly offered to take on extra tasks as long as (and I made this quite clear) I didn't stick out from the rest. I know it's silly but I don't like compliments on my performance. I don't like insults, obviously, but I was so worried about my head swelling from the possible ego I could have developed (it never did, thank goodness).

I can't remember why I left. Probably the best bunch of people I ever played with. It may have been guilt, though, for the people I played for *years* with on my original server. Either way, really regret not at least leaving an alt in that guild before transferring the DK as I cannot remember the guild name and I want to look them up again. =(

Sorry, getting off track here: I then rolled a mage when I was finished with the DK for a while and it represented my overly bitter side that I had suppressed for so long. I was killing things as a non-melee, CC-capable class that just burned everything around him. I worked hard to get him up to where he is now my absolute main character, getting all the rep, mounts, and pets I could (save, like, 2 Argent Tournament mounts) and I am outright determined to do whatever is required of me to avoid getting goaded back into healing on my paladin again.

'Cause that, my friends, is just. not. happening.
