Scattered Shots: What we didn't get {WoW}

Oct 9th 2008 4:59PM No it's not, it's the Survival 41-pointer that's unfinished.

At the moment Trap Mastery has been moved into the 41-point slot as a temporary measure while it's worked on.

The devs have stated it won't be finished for launch. Which kinda leaves Survival in a strange place.

Is Leading the Cavalry possible? {WoW}

Sep 18th 2008 7:18PM Mounts no longer take up "bag" space, mounts and vanity pets have there own tabs where they appear once "learnt".

MMO Champion reveals in game footage of Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury {WoW}

Apr 11th 2008 6:57AM @jrb

It shoots "magical" arrows, it doesn't require an ammo pouch or ammo.

It has the ranged attack speed increase because you no longer need an ammo pouch so it frees up a bag slot.

Forum post of the day: Flying mounts in the old world {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2008 12:13AM "Examples I've seen are when you fly from EPL to Ghostlands on the taxi."

That is nothing to do with old world (pre-BC) zone loading. That is simply to prevent people without the expansion getting to Ghostlands. The only loading screens you get in Azeroth are when using boats/zeppelins or entering an instance.

The Pre-BC/Post-BC zone situation (for example, nothing existing where Ghostlands is without the expansion except for a Quel'Thalas message and a pretty tower) would be interesting to see how Blizzard would overcome if they ever did add the ability to fly in Azeroth.

Honestly the "stick every area new with BC on a seperate server cluster" idea might have sounded good originally but it's left them an... interesting conundrum if they ever wanted to allow Azerothian flight.

Insider Trader: Rounding up 2.4 professions changes, part 2 {WoW}

Mar 7th 2008 3:41PM Blacksmithing was covered in Part 1 last week which is linked at the top of the article...

How to comment on WoW Insider {WoW}

Dec 20th 2007 5:36PM It does seem a roundabout way of doing it in that you have to comment before being able to configure stuff rather than the standard sign-up/register and login. But it works.

Now to make myself an avatar...

Last Week on Massively: Warcraft related stories {WoW}

Dec 10th 2007 5:09AM I totally agree. Surely the WoW related articles should be posted primarily on WoWInsider and then referenced on Massively.

Unless of course they are planning to do away with WoW Insider like they did SL Insider.

Since they started focussing primarily on Massively they have "forgotten" to post a few "important" scene happenings here, perhaps they are posted on Massively but a lot of the readers who visit here DO NOT and WILL NOT visit Massively as they JUST want WoW news and discussion.

New recipes in Patch 2.3 {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 3:41PM Some really great new stuff in patch 2.3, it's like Blizzard are apologizing for the.... lack of content in 2.2.

Insider Trader: Engineering -- The Final Stretch {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 3:38PM Really useful post, almost makes me want to grind Engineering once I hit 70...

As others have said, the Lootables link is broken. I really like Lootables, nice layout and good guides.

I wonder what other goodies Blizzard might have in store for Engineers!

If you can't beat the gold farmer, make everyone's life miserable {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 3:34PM As @3 said, the delay isn't about the actual transfer of cash, it's simply to give Blizzard room to trace and check transactions to help catch the "dodgy" ones easier. (Why exactly they didn't have checks in place without needing to expand the transaction period is another question, but I digress.)

To be honest, when you put an item up for auction, you accept that it'll take a possible 8, 12 or 24 (soon to be 12, 24 and 48) hours to sell, or not sell at all. How exactly is waiting an hour a problem? If you want to make cash instantly then use the trade channel, that is, after all, what it is there for!

I don't really see where the issue is except as something else to whine about. And this is yet another ill-researched post.

WoWInsider is suddenly turning into the Official WoW Forums, Mark 2.
