Apr 29th 2008 1:14PM I can completely associate with the clueless thing. I rolled a night elf as well and hung around doing noob quests for a couple of hours before I got bored.
I met a girl who saw me yelling stupid things in the general chat channels and she took me under her wing. She asked if I wanted 'the grand tour of Azeroth' and I had no idea what she meant. She told me she'd take me to Stormwind and I'd be happier there. I shrugged and agreed. I'm a sucker for a tour.
Did I mention she was the same level I was?
So through the portal, down the dock, onto the boat, and across to the mainland. From there we took the connecting boat to Menethil Harbour and even by THAT point I was mesmerized, trying to scratch down notes on a piece of paper of where I'd been so that I could find my way back. I had no idea what a hearthstone was.
Quickie (NOW I remember her name) - bless her soul - decided that the trip through the Wetlands was too hazardous for the two of us. (In hindsight, I think we could have totally made it.) So she jumped in the water and told me to follow her and stay as close to the shore as I could. Yes boys and girls, we SWAM to Westfall. But the only problem was, she lost her connection about three quarters of the way there, so when my foot finally landed on dry ground I had NO IDEA where I was, and I was back to my idiotic screaming in chat. I had no idea if the residents of this Westfall place were friend or foe, and I remember dashing through the zone as if I was fleeing from Illidan himself trying to find some friendly place where I could stop and catch my breath. I distinctly recall being mesmerized by my first pig sighting in Westfall and wondering why the beast just stood there and didn't attack me.
That was two and a half years ago. Oh how we've come a long way since then.
Dec 8th 2007 1:39PM My Windows machine bricked the other day, so I'm playing on a Mac at the moment BUT...
Before it bricked, Cartographer and Lightheaded were like peas and carrots. I recommend updating to the most recent versions. It worked fine.
Nov 30th 2007 12:06PM I agree wholeheartedly. I use the exact same setup, but with Sennheiser PX100's. Headsets have the potential to be SO uncomfortable, why not use a set of headphones you really love and a kick-ass mic.
That Logitech microphone is just such a unit.
Nov 5th 2007 6:34PM Mistake? What mistake?
Seriously, thanks. I scoured the front page for a name and didn't find one, so I played the odds and lost. Thank you!
Oct 23rd 2007 2:42PM "Poor old Celia" suits me just fine. Celia is the reason I watch the show. Greetings from your sister site WoW Insider. :-)
Oct 21st 2007 8:32AM The problem is with the hundreds of thousands of people running the Headless Horseman event. The little known fact is that the Horseman is in-fact infected with a very infectious variant of leprosy which has begun to infect the legs of the inhabitants of Azeroth.
Oh... and #11... it has nothing to do with your firewall. Anybody who told you that should be hung.
Oct 17th 2007 5:36PM Let me throw THIS bone out...
Think of how much easier it would be to find a GROUP with this system. NOBODY, not even warriors, would want to be roaming alone.
Ok, I'm heading back into the bomb shelter.
Sep 17th 2007 9:34AM 1. Pitbull was reviewed here two months ago. I was presenting an alternative.
2. I prefer function over fashion. The config screen of every other unit frame package I tried looked like the cockpit of a jumbo jet. I want to play the game, not spend an entire day configuring an add-on. :)
Aug 25th 2007 2:32PM I'm not talking about feedback from a single player or a single guild being allowed to bring down somebody's rating. I'm talking about a formula that requires different people in different guilds and for there to be a trend of abuse... not just one or two people who spam it repeatedly. I think the math is possible.
