World events and how to run them {WoW}

Dec 10th 2007 7:08PM Anyone rememeber a few months back a dense mob of lvl 15 undead suddenly turned up at the grave yard by Jasperlode Mine and Moonbrooke? The next day they were gone.

I was wondering if that was a test, maybe the dead will rise.

The end of the (patch) day {WoW}

Nov 13th 2007 11:01PM Being Oceanic I'm still at work, I'll find out in a few hours.

I read in the forums that Ghostlands and Silvermoon flight Paths now connect to wider Azeroth with a loading screen. I can't see this in the patch notes. Is it true?

Know Your Lore: Uther the Lightbringer {WoW}

Oct 31st 2007 11:59PM He was the Optiums Prime of the Allience. Only thing he's lacking is the ablity to come back from the dead.

This is the problem with the Alliance heros, their all dead or missing. I still kind of have a hope a Narru will zap Uther's grave and rez him in some dark hour to come.

Breaking News: Casual players hard to define {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 2:58AM It's all very dependant on your point of view, the Causual or Hardcore Gamer goal posts move from person to person and which ever camp you fall into you likley consider the other faction to hold the traits you dislike.

Basiclly you have the time to raid, or you don't. You want to raid or you don't. It's that simple.

Fiction is being caused by Bad Gamers who are found on both sides of this vague divide.

Can we please ease up on telling *ALL* Casuals off every time a Raider has a bad experience? I don't know who's refusing to take direction, but it wasn't me.

All the World's a Stage: And your life is a mine rich in gems {WoW}

Oct 8th 2007 9:28PM @Deoridhe.

Role Playing is a socal activity (well Duh), so dark and mysterious characters while sometimes interesting in fiction perform less well in Role Play as part of an Ensemble team.

Plus Kingdom destroying wars have raged for 25 years. Losing all your family to Orcs in no way makes you special, walk into Goldshire and throw a rock and you’ll hit 20 other sole survivors of something.

Just to be different my Pally never fought the Scourge in Lordaeron and never met Arthas ever … my Pally was busy chasing Orcs in Red Ridge the whole time hence the reason he’s alive after the epic Alliance butt kicking fest that was Warcraft 3.

Oct 8th 2007 2:42AM @ Erron. Yeah, I get you. And indeed I like role playing that makes us people rather than faction based killers.

If there was no one left to fight my Pally would just head back to the work shop in Lakeshire and get on with his life.

That said, if your trying to join a new RP guild the first thing they'll consider is your class. Just like any other guild.

All the World's a Stage: And your life is a mine rich in gems {WoW}

Oct 8th 2007 1:58AM @9. I suspect you know of this event because of the resulting argument, that should tell you what his peer's thought about it.

I might have thrown him a *Flash of Light* just so he got the attension he wanted but broken legs arn't characterization, he was litterally choising to gimp himself and drag people down with him.

I might be palying an older character, so I might make the jump with a grumble about how I'm too old for this but that's all.

All the World's a Stage: And your life is a mine rich in gems {WoW}

Oct 8th 2007 12:44AM @7. Yeah, I think the nub* of my problem was Class, because it's such a huge and limiting choice, and it's almost impossible to keep out the methodology of that class from your role playing.

For example, I play a Paladin. Wether I'm Zealous or Forgiving doesn't matter at the end of the day, Paladins are about Order and empowering their allies to act. If I'm refusing to Heal/Rez and Buff people then I am being a complete arse to my team, both in terms of my game role and what Paladin's are in the Lore.

Your an Engineer first and formost, and that's actually quite cool. But your still a Warlock, so unless you never leave the city you're still ripping out people's souls to summon demons and that says something about you that you can't get around.


*Nub. As in gist or heart.

All the World's a Stage: And your life is a mine rich in gems {WoW}

Oct 7th 2007 10:55PM Something Awful once commented there are only two types of Role Playing Character you can actively play in WoW. Either you’re a Heroic believer in your race’s/faction’s cause or you’re a cynical mercenary in it just for yourself.

I feel there’s a bit of truth to this, and often find my characters falling into those patterns.

You can try and break it up with some personal back story but ultimately why should other RP’s care about my character’s tragic/family history?

History and mentality are a start but just like Normal servers it’s mostly about the relationships you have with other players.

Should Oceanic realms get their own progression? {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 10:19PM Oceanic are like that Quatto guy from Total Recall. The Conjoined little brother of the US Servers. It’s such a shame we’re in a situation where we’re getting branded as the dependant freaks US severs rather a community in it self.

We want to be Independant, articals highlighting how our achevements are meaningless so long as we're attached to the US only add weight to our argument frankly.
