Did you think I had forgiven?

WoTLK Friends and Family Alpha Patch Notes leaked {WoW}

May 17th 2008 10:17PM I don't think so. Given what we've seen and heard so far I think they're right on track for a Q4/08 release. Don't forget the big endgame content like Icecrown Glacier won't be turned on immediately.

I've got a few 70s and am preparing for my future Death Knight main. I, for a time, considered taking him Blacksmithing/Swordsmith. Then I ran the numbers for all of the materials to go 1-375. I nearly had a stroke. Why Blizzard would make the material cost for Blacksmithing so disproportionate to the items you can craft is beyond me. Suffice it to say, the DK is going Inscription/Herbalism.

And, now that I think about it, Engineering was only really bad to level because of all the gorram Khorium you needed. If there's a new super rare super high tier metal in Wrath I can only hope Blizzard doesn't make Engineers whore themselves out for it. :/

May 17th 2008 9:15PM A new cap at 450? With how hellish Engineering was to level to 375 I shudder to think what 376 to 450 is going to be.

All things Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

May 16th 2008 9:49PM I guess you missed the point of the loot in 25mans being a FULL TIER HIGHER than in their 10man counterpart?

But it's ok. You're a raider. Don't think too hard.

May 11th 2008 9:52PM "And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. "

I always think of that line when Blizzard pulls out the Ban Hammer.

Dungeons and Raids in Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

May 9th 2008 6:13AM This is easily the best change to the raiding scene the game has seen.

The raiders get to wag their epeens with higher tier loot from the 25mans and the casuals get to experience content just like anyone else. (This, more or less, is what the WoW endgame was intended to be before WoW went beta all those long years ago.)

And make no mistake, any raider who disagrees with this decision is either a fool or an entitlement stooge. There is *no* logical reason to restrict content to some 'higher' band of players while preventing the largest section of the playerbase from seeing it. None what so ever. The content is not devalued just because it's more accessible.

As for the 'OMG, 10 people can kill Arthas? Bulls**t!' argument, it too is fallacious at best and spiteful at worst. Less people translates to a more epic and more personal fight. With 25+ people you're just a face in the crowd, but in a 10man your specific abilities, talents, and play style are unique and worthwhile. And if you look back at the WoW lore, the game has historically been a series of 1v1 or small group encounters. (Arthas and Jaina versus Kel'thuzad, Kael and Vashj versus Maiev/Lord Garithos, Arthas vs Mal'Ganis, and so on.) Even in other traditional fantasy mediums, a group of 4-7 people is the norm.

Why people don't think others should see content if for no other reason than some perceived lessening of quality is beyond me entirely.
