Mar 19th 2010 9:34AM My favorite is the Winterspring music, which I think is also used during the gnome intro video. I also enjoy the Orgrimmar and Undercity themes. I have not had the music on for some time, and have missed out on it entirely in raids. One of the guilds I'm in still runs Kara fairly often, but we just recently got vent, so I doubt I'll ever get to experience the music as it was intended. It's funny to think there was a soundtrack in Kara other than listening to the GM work out a different strategy for Moroes after every wipe.
Jun 26th 2008 6:23AM I have a 70 orc hunter, a 70 undead mage, and a 70 gnome warlock. The lock was first and I haven't played her in a long time. I also have a 68 undead priest and a 65 troll rogue.
My favorites of the races are orc, gnome, and troll. I am really, really tired of the female undead casting animations and voices and am so sorry that I have two of them.
Jun 26th 2008 6:06AM My two prized possessions are both useless: Brann's Trusty Pick (it's an axe *and* a mining pick), from a quest in Silithus, and the Master Builder's Shirt, from Fineous Darkvire in BRD.
May 19th 2008 4:55AM I'm not going to judge you (like everyone else has), not really. What works for your relationship isn't the same as what works for others. But if her account's paid up and she hasn't, you know, sharded her purples, how does this bargaining tool even work? You know she isn't actually going to quit.
It sounds like this behavior is a part of your relationship that you don't really mind. But posting about it here contributes to negative stereotypes about female players: that we only play to make our husbands or boyfriends happy and that we will create drama if we don't get what we want. Some of us just enjoy games -- and not mind games.
May 13th 2008 3:36PM Since there are so many arena teams with this name, I wonder what cultural phenomenon inspired it. It's rare to encounter anything original in guild or arena team names. Everything's from Family Guy, or something equally stupid and/or overused. I'm sure with a little research, one could find the source of this phrase. A quick Google showed me that it's used by players of a variety of games.
The name is indeed offensive, but I'm sure that those who were using it and got reported will just change it to something equally offensive.
May 7th 2008 3:47AM Can you have an apostrophe in a guild name at all? I don't think I've ever seen one. I used to notice misused apostrophes a lot more than I do now. Now I'm just excited when people don't spell things the "cool" way ("ne" for "any," "no" for "know," and so on).
Jan 25th 2008 3:19AM I listen to Pandora radio while I play. My station plays old gothic rock, industrial, electronica, 80s new wave, a little bit of experimental jazz, and whatever else I think of adding in there.
Here are some artists whose songs I've bookmarked on Pandora:
She Wants Revenge
I'm not devoted to any one genre, so I chose 'other.'
I sometimes listen to audiobooks, too. Can I share the biggest nerd title?
Jan 15th 2008 6:35AM Unlike most things in WoW, the process to tame this wolf wasn't something everyone could accomplish. Currently, every 70 can get awesome epics just by showing up for BGs, and everyone can level solo to 70, even more quickly than before. But the amount of time a player is willing to invest isn't the issue with this pet; instead, creative thinking and research are important. Because this game is about how much time you put in, not how creatively you think, Blizzard had to remove this pet. (I hope they don't take it away from people who tamed it. But I won't be at all surprised if they do.)
Dec 15th 2007 3:24AM I'm a little of an alt-aholic too. I end up having crazy thoughts like, "I'll send all this cloth and spider silk to my tailor, she'll know what to do with it." Or, "my poor hunter, all she really does lately is stand around disenchanting stuff." But when I'm playing a character, I think and talk about that character in the first person.
