Forum post of the day: Where's my big brother {WoW}

Aug 26th 2008 11:37AM This is not the internet where you operate freely but a subsection of it and you have to agree to abide by certain rules and regulations in order to access it. So option A and B are irrelevant.

Second, the spirit of the suggestion is to allow /2 to be returned to those actually playing the game and liberate it from those merely using the game to pass the time spamming "look at me, look at me". In that spirit, let those who want to "socialize" use /1 to worship Chuck Norris etc.

Breakfast Topic: Where will you level your Death Knight? {WoW}

Jul 30th 2008 12:19PM I could not agree with you more, though I do sympathize with the excitement of a new class for long-time players ... I just don't share it.

I wish they had spent their time improving pre-BC content and making levelling somehow meaningful ... retuning old raids and such and actually linking Cenarion rep from Azeroth to Outlands. Now practically the only reason to grind Timbermaw rep is to get to Winterspring and, face it, might as well farm the bears for exp., grab the flight point and never use the tunnel again. Oh well.

No DK for me.

Azeroth's new plague, Potion Sickness {WoW}

Jul 29th 2008 8:50AM I dunno ... not saying it is fun to sink all one's gold into pots but I can't help but feel such nerfs are a result of poor game design. I mean, really, you put the pots in the game and then enterprising players figure out how to use it to their advantage and ... oh, nerf it. A little like the drums.

So what happens when you get chained with adds? I think the cooldown on pots was sufficient and could have been retooled if they really felt they were unable to design an encounter to compensate for pots. To have a flat out "one per combat sequence" would need "combat sequence" to be redefined too.

I disagree that this is a good thing. At least not as you have explained it.

Wrath storage solutions {WoW}

Jul 24th 2008 10:58AM Badges? I'd just keep them in my pockets ... I do have pockets, don't I? Why can't I keep stupid small stuff in my pockets? How is a two-handed mace and ring take up the same bag space?

Preparing for 80 {WoW}

Jun 18th 2008 11:57AM And dropped the comma that should have followed "unfortunately".

Forum post of the day: Rookie Mistakes {WoW}

Jun 17th 2008 1:57PM The standard "what is AH?", "Oh, I have talent points?" and other mistakes but most quickly overcome. Running Ramparts the other day with a lower level guildee, we brought a lvl 67 Shadow Priest who was looking to finish a quest. He was an enchanter so we told him to need the BoP blues and DE them. He needed them and did not DE them. After a few minutes of whispered conversation, I discovered he had never DE'd anything before. When he finally figured out how to do it ... his enchanting was not high enough! Either he was quite the nice noob a damn devious ninja.

Ask WoW Insider: /roll abuse? {WoW}

Jun 16th 2008 1:03PM I gotta agree that the Healadin should have bowed out ... you gotta equip if you are gonna roll on a covetted BoP. If you are not equipping, you are not rolling.

Breakfast Topic: If druids could shapeshift into anything... {WoW}

Jan 10th 2008 12:41PM Lots of good ideas, and well thought-out. Especially the wolf/wolf pack suggestion. But the idea I like best is an improvement to current forms, though I think simply improving the current forms is not enough. The feral forms should be more lycanthropish, with bear definitely exhibiting some sort of armor, like bone plates. The cat form should be more sinister, perhaps like the worgen. The idea that these forms evolve as the character levels is key. Bears should increase in size while cats would increase in how savage looking they are. And I think Blizz should make an effort to tie a characters look into the equation. I mean, if I choose to have facial hair, or white hair, why would my bear look like another NE who does not look like me?

Ask WoW Insider: Aldor or Scryer? {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 12:12PM As a protection warrior I have avoided this choice and am now lvl 64 ... after reading this I had better check my rep. as too may have unknowingly effected my rep. as I currently use the Aldor Rise inn. WOW Wiki suggests I want to go Scryer, as I am a tank. Comparing the gear, it is a close call. Especially given how many times I have died by fire in my career. I guess I will probably go Scryer -- hard to take as I am a dwarf, not that the pony boys are any better -- but I suspect the differences btween gear are moot and it will still come down to how well you play your toon.
