Breakfast Topic: The other kind of hybrids {WoW}

May 10th 2010 12:07PM People often think that different species are unable to have offspring. However, this is not the case. The majority of interspecies hybrids are directly or indirectly due to human intervention. They come from breeding programs, or proximity to similar species due to man made environments.

Just a few examples are:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liger
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zonkey
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grizzly%E2%80%93polar_bear_hybrid

I dont have any reason to believe humanoids would be unable to do the same. Sure, some inhabitants come from other worlds, and other science "facts," but than again, isnt that what magic is for?

Know Your Lore: Everything that is, is alive -- The Elements, Part 1 {WoW}

May 5th 2010 4:43PM http://www.wowwiki.com/Murmur

Murmur is the fourth and final boss of Shadow Labyrinth, an instance wing of Auchindoun. It bears an appearance similar to Ragnaros and Thunderaan. Before Ahune's appearance, he was the only elemental with Elemental Lord status in Outland.

Murmur is an incredibly powerful elemental born when the Universe was created, about whom little is known. The Shadow Council inhabiting the Shadow Labyrinth summoned it for their nefarious purposes, but seem to be having trouble keeping him under control. Its history is briefly documented in the Codex of Blood, which reveals Murmur is the primordial essence of sound.

Officers' Quarters: A friendly loot system {WoW}

Officers' Quarters: A friendly loot system {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 3:16PM Scott Andrews, you response was well written and I agree completely.

However, you did not address the REAL issue.

The question isnt whether or not person A or person B should have gotten the loot. Everyone is in agreement that the high roller should have won and keep the loot. Even the poster, Anonymous, says the rules were followed. So whats the REAL issue at hand here?

The real issue is with Anonymous. He filled his letter with justifications to have the low roller win. Using words like friends, moral, and unlucky, he subconsciously worded the letter to favor the loser as much as possible. His ONLY sentence that "supports" the winner, calls him immoral.

Anonymous KNOWS he did the right thing, but he isnt happy with it. He is feeling guilty that his friend didnt win the loot and he is looking for reasons to justify that feeling. So what does he accomplish by writing this letter to you and getting a response? Well for the response you gave, it allows him to feel better about making the right decision. But he is in denial and we really hoping you would disagree with what was right.

Anonymous needs to take a moment to look introspectively at himself and see the forest for the trees. He isnt asking for help for the events, he is looking for help for his internal feelings.

Breakfast Topic: Who could be a new world boss in Cataclysm? {WoW}

Mar 1st 2010 8:46AM a true WORLD boss should be a boss that requires EVERYONE to fight. Im thinking something along the lines of ten 25 man guilds and everyone else to bring the boss down. Now THAT would be a world boss...

Spiritual Guidance: Paying the hybrid tax {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 2:59AM ummm... there is no hybrid tax anymore.

In a blue post, Ghostcrawler said all DPS puts out the same #s. Only the pure DPS classes will have a _slight_ advantage in certain situations - that will never rise.

Now some people will whine and say, oh my class doesnt do enough dps. Yes there are slight balancing issues, but odds are you are just doing it wrong :P

The making of the Gunship Battle encounter {WoW}

Jan 27th 2010 7:44PM I hate to disagree, but this is the "Chess Event" of ICC. Its brainless,boring, and ridiculously easy - to the point of I have never seen a group fail. Very poor design and implementation, in my opinion. There are more deaths in the steam spray than on the boat.
