Jul 10th 2010 3:39AM I know there were nights where I fell asleep and left wow running. Then there were times when my guilds drinking games while raiding/doing speed runs led to passing out and leaving the game running. I can think of the menial things in game, flight paths, trolling in trade/socializing with friends and guildies, waiting before/after/during raids and such that would subtract from my actual played time.
But after seeing the days /played (I played since open beta) hit over 300, it was a sobering moment. Almost a year playing wow? Whether or not I was actually sitting in front of the computer or not...that is a lot of time. Since then, I've stopped playing and deleted everything. I know, no one really cares. But just make sure you in enjoy your time, in and outside of the game.
Mar 18th 2010 12:37PM Having played a priest, resto shaman and being D-spec'd as holy...I almost always have healbot up when grouped. Pretty easy to keep an eye on health and dispelling.
You forgot one thing.
FFS...you can rez people! I hate when Ret's stand around with a full mana bar but won't think to help get raid/group members up. A few times I've had to run back into the instance, drink, then rez the rest of the dead while the pally stood there.
Jan 9th 2010 11:18PM I just can't wait to see just how fast the alpha ends up being posted. I didn't bother with the wrath a/beta. But I had fun messing around in the burning crusade sandbox a few weeks after the alpha started.
Jan 5th 2010 8:04PM This is not something new. Having played online games for years I have seen this happen more often than its reported. Most of the times it just leads to more trouble, and more drama. Especially when guild members decide to all show up in Vegas for a get together.
I no longer play any more due to this kind of stuff (too much drama). There are some people who live way to vicariously through their online persona. The spill over to real life doesn't work so well. Besides more people who are looking for some online hook up through a game are usually mentally unstable and in previously bad relationships already. Granted, there are a few happy endings...but those are few and far between.
Sep 8th 2009 9:04PM Yeah, it is kind of bad...to the point I leveled up a shaman in the place of my priest. I pull him out every now and then...then I put him back and remember just how thankless a job priests have.
I wish priests were like Clerics in EQ. Plate wearing, ass kicking healers, with rezz sticks so you can save mana. I wouldn't mind playing one of those again.
Aug 29th 2009 10:58PM Beyond my like/dislike for the video it self...I actually find the topic a funny one. While the writer said /gkicking was hard, one of my guilds found it a past time literally. If someone was acting and the officers decided to remove them from the guild, they would act as if it was a play from a game.
Its the snap...
The kick is up...
noob1 has been kicked from the guild
Most of the time this kind of stuff was used for people we didn't really care for. Especially if they were in the middle of a nerd raging qqfest.

I so want that to be a dance option in the future.
Nov 11th 2008 10:52PM I'm game
Dec 5th 2007 2:47AM This makes me giggle.
Yes, every now and then we still get stupid "lets race the alliance to the boss" matches. But most of the people in my battle group will play defense. Sometimes with a little coaxing. But it gives me a fuzzy feeling watching a small group of horde destroy a zerg of alliance rushing for Drek.
Aww, the joy of pvp in AV. Now if only they brought back the spines, night elf heads and some goblins. It would be like old times. Minus the 2-24 hour matches.
Nov 4th 2007 8:47AM Like two said, most healers have extra mods to make healing less tedious and more organized. Wether it be gridz, bars or what ever. I know some people will say "i heal fine without mods"...would you like a chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie? I needed to use the or i was dumping my shaman. They make a boring and somewhat stressful job easier.
And it was also stated about server vs player connection. The game doesn't always update information as fast as you would like. Some of it goes beyond our control and has to do with the other connections. My connection is fine, all of a sudden the warrior looks like he just got one shotted. "wtf just happened?" Dunno...Sorry about that, rez inc.
