Breakfast Topic: Is attunement a necessary evil? {WoW}

Aug 28th 2007 2:03PM I have three 60+ characters and I've never seen Ony. Why? Because the guild members who preceded me went on to bigger and better things, and I never finished the quest chain solo.

HEY BLIZZ - Some people like to group but got left behind in the mad rush to level. Some of us casuals WANT to see the content, but will feel like we'll always be playing catch-up.

Breakfast Topic: Worst designed zone in the game {WoW}

Aug 27th 2007 12:29PM I HATE Silithus. It's the one zone I never visit, except for the easiest 'go there' or tradeskill quests.

Hate the look. Hate the bugs.

Exclusive Interview: Wowhead and Affinity Media {WoW}

Jun 28th 2007 5:24PM I'm glad cyamarin is reading this thread. Obviously there is a demographic that buys gold, and one where the players hate RMT. But as long as the site is useful, not hard to read or not in your face about the RMT, I'll use it.

And I think that is the bottom line for who they are after. I personally spend less time on the sites where it is some sort of crusade to spite the gold sellers. Why? Because they spend more time on stupid anti-RMT articles than those which assist me in playing the game.

World Wide WoW: The New York Times, gold farming, and righteous anger {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2007 10:31AM It would be nice if WoWInsider stuck to quality information instead of politicizing something like this. Slanted journalism drives away a demographic; avoiding personal opinion DRAWS readers.

Some of us have no problem with the people who buy gold. The only problem that has been proven to me through experience is that gold farmers can hog the resources in an area, making it harder to farm for personal gain.

But, whatever. I still go to tentonhammer occasionally, even though they are a bunch of righteous jerks about RMT (making their opinionated articles less useful, IMO). And as long as thottbot has useful information, I'll go there, too.

The Rising Cost of Respecs {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2006 9:53AM Although I have not respecced any of my toons, every time Blizz resets a class, the cost goes up to respec - that means even if you choose not to change anything, it is as if you had used a respec when you fill in your talents. So if your class has changed and the talent tree has been reset, it automatically bumps the cost when you DO decide to pay for it. Blizzard is unapologetic about this.

It's one thing for people to change their specs once in a while - or if, once they hit 60, they need to for raiding. But people who can't decide on a build are either going to be unhappy and bitch on the forums, or they are just going to buy gold.

Personally, I don't think they should charge so much for it. It is another example of a game that has become so popular, the developers cannot easily change a system to correct playability/balance issues.
