Breakfast Topic: What are you just not that excited about in Mists? {WoW}

Mar 28th 2012 8:31AM The whole sha-bang..Panda's, pokemon pets, excuses instead of updated character models. etc etc...(Yes I'm one of those people) Instead of complaining for the next 12 months, I've just un-subscribed. Praps the next expansion will be a bit more up my street. Hope so, lots of time and love invested in my characters.

Lore wise I'll keep a peeper out for what happens with Garrosh etc.. It's just not enough of a reason to pay the monthly sub any more though.

Been enjoying Skyrim the last couple of weeks..Got to love the Elder Scroll games. Anyway's hope you folks enjoy this one! :) Hope to be back soon.


Breakfast Topic: Which race has the best starting zone? {WoW}

Feb 27th 2012 11:43AM Forsaken starting zone...It has to be! For the lore!...*spoilers* Godfrey shooting Sylvanas...Horror! The plight of the forsaken Garrosh and Sylvanas 'watch your clever mouth bitch!' dialogue!!!..It's pure gold..Having her escort you through Silverpine explaining to you personally what your faction is about (whilst one shot ending worgen) is epic....
Then getting to hillsbrad, the comedy quests are a riot!





We need to manage our expectations about Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Feb 24th 2012 8:34AM I'll admit to a wee sinking feeling after the MOP announcement. :( So you could say my expectations have already been, erm, 'addressed'
The new race isn't to everyone's taste clearly..I don't despise them any more or less than I do Gnomes however*stamps on one* Vermin!... Panda's are just more furry idiots to shoot in the face.

I have high hopes for story progression..Now that orc jesus has had his day in the sun praps things plot wise can shift up a gear.

I would dearly love to see the old models get updated. I think that'll be the biggest disappointment for moi come MOP day.. If my forsaken's bones still jutting out of his garb...Ok just a selection of new hairdoo's... Anything!! That's the level I'm sinking to expectation wise for MOP...Hair that looks like hair...

Jokes and songs decorate the WoW community {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2012 8:40AM Jokes? Was she talking? Christ on a bike...That's a lass that knows how to market them, I mean herself. Dear god, I hope she doesn't start commanding her tween male forum geek army to do her evil bidding....*Buffs his henchman helmet* That's not a euphemism, I genuinely have one...I figured I'd need it for when the Chinese finally take over.

In the interests of gender equality you might want to post a 'joke filled' video with some guy with his junk out...Or a suitably chaste photo of Emmeline Pankhurst?

Breakfast Topic: What is your class theme song? {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 10:13AM Great idea for a post!! *tips hat* For my main ,a hunter and beloved pet Fenrir - 'The Wolf' by Fever Ray (can I post a grooveshark link here?) http://tinysong.com/GD7D
And for my DK alt - The Outsider by A Perfect Circle http://tinysong.com/ksFX

Breakfast Topic: How and why did you leave your previous guild? {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 8:45AM Not really a hop per say...I've never done the guild thing. I set up a guild bank for my main back when I started playing pre guild perks and really don't want to lose it. I like my tabard and champion status..Even though in 'new' guild terms they're meaningless... :) I have a level 25 mage alt that I thought I might try to be more social with. I have to admit the level 20 guild perk of a head slot heirloom might of swung it!! ..Applied to 4 casual/social level 20+ guilds on my eu server...So far nada, zip. zilch. Is it my winning personality or do high level guilds only take on level capped players?

Third faction or logistical nightmare? {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2012 2:26PM I think the issue here is one of morality. Are we talking about a 3rd faction that sits in the grey area between the supposed horde villains and the alliance? (I play forsaken and definitely consider my character a villain) The other races...They're the diet coke of evil. It's all so cookie cutter at the moment.. ALL humans are good?? Ergo alliance are good??..It's an absurd notion. We should be given the opportunity to defect at least to a grey area faction if not clearly delineated moral sides, I don't think it should be race restricted. It empowers the individual. In real world terms it's like saying ALL english hate the french.. It's just ignorant to assume because you belong to a particular race you harbour x y z prejudice.. they can write story & lore but it's our game populated by our characters, it should be our choice.

Breakfast Topic: Has the early Cataclysm gearing model failed? {WoW}

Feb 1st 2012 9:13AM I feel your pain! As a casual player with a job and a family I just couldn't justify the time instances took at the start of the expansion.. So I chose to level up a couple of alts instead..The gear grind just wasn't an option. Now..Spend a bit of gold on crafted 377 level gear and you've skipped the first two tiers and are good to go for heroics. It's a whole different world :) You can just run heroics for valor to get a tier 13 set bonus. To be honest I've preffered running normals for justice points to vendor for honor tokens for old pvp gear to transmog. :) Nearly finished my hunter, he's looking fine! Great thing is, when the next expansion is out the token grind wont be for nothing..That transmog gear I actully keep! As opposed to binning them for quest greens in Mists! :)

Breakfast Topic: Are you a WoW cross-dresser? {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 8:35AM I recently rolled a worgen rogue for the racial 1% crit.. Originally male and stayed that way till about level 50 when I finally snapped and rolled a female.The male character model is just too bulky to play a character that's based on stealth. Like a fecking stealth hippo?? Ridiculous. The slighter female model just seemed a better fit for the character. Plus her /wave emote never fails to crack me up. :)
Personally, a 34 year old man that roleplays a female?...Just creepy...That's just my humble opinion, I'm sure there are people that disagree.. Whatever floats your boat...

My main is a male forsaken hunter and probably the character I most identify with. Really hope they update the models soon, as much as I love that guy, he really could do with a lick of paint. :(
