Dec 7th 2007 8:42PM Ahh the good ol' days, this was actually my first ever Epic item loot I ever got. I remember doing the gathering quests in the blasted lands collecting various animal parts, and bam, this puppy drops! I'm a priest, and the other person in the group was a warlock so we let the rolls go! BOOM! rolled a 98!! I think I sold this sucker for around 650-800gold when that much is about the same as 5000 is now. Anyway, enough rambling, this was my first ever epic, and it holds a special place in my heart. /kiss.
Aug 29th 2007 1:41PM I'm not sure if this has been posted in the comments yet, but I know when I played WCIII during that level you destroyed their homes, however, before I slaughtered them I always let them become zombies first. Perhaps when you burn the house, the people will run out, tranform then attack you. Then it's just self defence.
Aug 16th 2007 9:28AM I would also like to add that the ability to have a "showcase" room, might make people go back to the old instaces to collect their old sets. What better way to get people to go back to the old stuff and revisit if you have a whole room in every hosue design that has empty showcases, im sure that would make people go out and fill them up!!!! Starting right back at the tier 0 stuff,(oh god devout, devout devout :P)and all the way up to the most current tier armor)
Aug 16th 2007 9:24AM Player housing with a spot to show anything interesting you have acquired. What better thing than to have a house where you could place all your tier armor sets, instead of keeping them in your bank, or turn them into shards like myself :(.
Also get that woodworking profession up and running and make them able to craft deeds that allow you to place furniture in home for decoration. Tailers can make rugs, skinners can make animal heads on the wall etc etc. Miners can make diamonds for decorating etc etc, make all professions able to craft home decorations.
Also allow according to amounts of money, the type of home they can purchase from a template. The larger the home, the more gold to invest. Make it a hard thing to get as well, the cheapest home would be 5000 for a single room shack, and up to 25,000 for a nice 3 floor mansion. Make the largest buildings meant for guild halls etc etc. Costing a massive amount of gold that the guild can contribute to accomplish. I would say the largest item would be 100,000 gold for a 4 story, and an arena for dueling. Make them huge gold sinks to raise the value of gold even more, would be very nice.
The homes would be instance based so you can invite up to 40 people in your home via raid invites. Also make an option available to turn the house into the guild house so the instance could be entered by anyone in the guild. You can also access the guild bank in the home that is designated as the guild hall. (Only availbe to guild leaders, and of course 1 home per toon, therefore making only 1 guild hall per guild).
The biggest thing is customization, allow the purchase of different homes from templates, but make them empty, you must decorate it yourself. It adds variety to homes, plus a reason other than raiding to the game. Who doesn't want to show off stuff to friends?
I beleive that if you have some other stuff to work for(thats why UO lasted so long) you can hold onto your player base for much longer.
Anyway that's my idea :P!!! Long write up, maybe make a new topic on the subject lol, id like to here what other people think of player housing?
Aug 16th 2007 7:45AM Very nice looking site, it's hard to make something look so nice and still be able to run smoothly. For my item needs I'll be using this site for sure, i love the easy searching for the items in each instance. I also would love to see a list of recipes sorted by profession and if they drop/where they drop. I found it annoying on wowhead to search for forumlas, then click each one to find out where it dropped.
The profession guids are awesome, and very handy. I'll be recommending this site to alot of people, I use wowhead for my questing needs, and this site for my item information needs. Very nice!
PS- I think the comment system would be useless for items only. They usually just end up fights for which class can use them..... comments are only useful for a site like wowhead where you can get quest information.
Anyway, love the site, bookmarked :)
Aug 15th 2007 1:52PM I have been using paypal for about 5 years now, it's a great way to have your subscription renewd. As long as the monthly charge is the same from blizzard, it does not cost anything extra. (I know EA for UO charged extra when you used paypal(morons)...) But yea, I would much rather have the money removed from my bank account rather than placed on my credit card. For the person who says you got hacked, it's only your fault to blame for falling victim of a scam, I have roughly 200 US funds in my account at all times at there is nothing fishy about any transactions. It's very secure, and great for people who do not use credit cards, or would rather have money removed rather than charged. The only thing I would see as a downfall is if blizzard charges more to use the service, I havn;t checked out the ability to switch yet so I couldn't tell you. I imagine they won't however, having a subscription base of millions probally gets them some sort of deal ;) . Anyway, I'll be glad to switch!

Jul 11th 2007 10:46AM I remember watching a video of a rogue who had stun locks perfected, to prive this he recorded himself completely naked except grey daggers. He attack a Grandmarshal geared warrior(back when 60 was the max level) and completely stun locked him to death. I wish I still had the link, maybe someone else has it.
