Forum post of the day: Do away with racials! {WoW}

Nov 6th 2007 2:08PM I am SO SICK of hearing about and seeing NERFs for arena. STOP IT already. Damn.

Arena didn't even exist pre-BC and now it is the single defining thing about most buffs/nerfs and patches.

Work on pvp fine, but keep it the hell out of my pve.

"1% to hit to all my group members....?"

thats good and ur stupid. L2 Raid.

More racials, better racials.

Some people give a rats ass about them. Some people obsess over them. Some people thought they are important now hate their ugly toon.

There needs to be a solution for the people who started out not giving a rats ass about them or ignorant of them And NOW obsess about them.

More options NOT less. Buffs, not nerfs.

Will merging servers help low pop realms? {WoW}

Nov 6th 2007 11:28AM I fought against the paid transfers for along time. And then i fought with my friends to get them to go. JUST GO.

Pay da MAN his extortion and you can enjoy the game again.

Will merging servers help low pop realms? {WoW}

Nov 6th 2007 11:25AM I have played on medium and low pop realms. I moved my ally toon from a low [DYING realm] to a high pop realm.

WOW. wow. Its SO much better. I can't imagine going back to my medium [horde realm].

Sure some people transfer off the high pop realm to pursue end game. Fine. We don't even noticed. But the low pop realm. So very dead. Nothing.

Why wont blizz do something?

Me and my alts = 75$
My friends = $175

I am happily on my high pop realm and can get runs likes its going out of style. Even medium pop realms seem like ghost towns to me.

Blizz has $250.

Thats why they won't fix it. Everything they say is an excuse.

Once transfer money < % of accounts on low pop realms going inactive THEN they will do something about it.

Guild bank prices lower, still ain't cheap {WoW}

Nov 5th 2007 4:33PM [you fail more wowinsider]

4th tab = 1111g for 392slots
5th tab = 6111g for 490slots

None but the richest guilds would have baught the 5th tab

3rd tab = 294 for 850g [w/alts 244slots for 111g]
4th tab = 392 for 1850g [w/alts 366slots for 333g]
5th tab = 490 for 4350g [w/alts 488slots for 444g]

[Alt bankers 24 bank + 7 slots with 14 bags = 122 slots for 111g {no cost of bags added}]

@ 4350g most guild STILL wont be buying the 5th tab. But when you buy the 3rd tab you have already paid the 700g Tax, so you might as well grab the 4th tab.

Summary: Old Price made gbank cheaper than banking alts. New price there is a 700g tax to prevent gbank alts.

1] WTF is wrong with having a gbank alt. It isn't like we are going to confuse newbs with all the bankalt guilds. After we register the charter that's it. Not any different then the alt or vanity guilds EVERYONE makes.

2] YTF is it preferable to have bank alts. I have never understood blizz's reasoning that there was some thing preferable about a bunch of lvl 1 bank alts hanging out at the AH / mailbox in IF/SW. You aren't saving database by limiting our storage space. We just create bank alts which just creates and storesw a bunch of superfluous information just so we can have storage space. [though I never bothered with a bank alt until you forced us to go back to azeroth.]

3] Gbank alt = 2 tabs 196 slots for 350g. PLUS 122slots for 111g [bank+bags]

= 318slots for 461g [w/alts 488slots for 444g but requires 4 alts, easy for guilds annoying for players]

So basically many geniune guilds would be better off with bank alts [and duckie bank mod]. Gbank alts will still be worth it for people willing to spend gold on convience.

Nov 5th 2007 4:32PM You fail Wowinsider, nice cutting off my post.

SO blizz has increases the g cost of Gbanks for the first few tabs [but reduced it over all]

1st slot - 100 Gold
2nd slot - 250 Gold
3rd slot - 500 Gold
4th slot - 1000 Gold
5th slot - 2500 Gold
6th slot - 5000 Gold

Basically. thats an extra 700g TAX for all guilds.

The Old prices

1st tab = 1 for 98 slots
2nd tab = 11g for 196slots
3rd tab = 111g for 294 slots

Nov 5th 2007 4:28PM I posted this to general forums when I first saw the change.

Preparing for 2.3: Guild Banks {WoW}

Nov 5th 2007 10:55AM way to blow is people they changed it.

Guild bank prices changes
I don't know how old is this change, but the price for guild banks slot has been changed. The price of first slots has been increased to prevent alt guilds banks, and the price of the last slots has been decreased. It now costs 9 350 gold to buy all slots instead of 16 111 gold.

1st slot - 100 Gold
2nd slot - 250 Gold
3rd slot - 500 Gold
4th slot - 1000 Gold
5th slot - 2500 Gold
6th slot - 5000 Gold


SO my math says....

24 bank + 7 slots with 14 bags = 122 slots for 111g [no cost of bags added]


1 gbank slot = 98 [100g]
2nd = 196 [350g]
3rd = 294 [850g]

So. 850g too much.

350g for 196 slots versus 111g for 122 slots [or 2 alts @ 222g for 244slots].

The Light and How to Swing It: Maximizing Paladin DPS, Part 2 {WoW}

Oct 30th 2007 5:25PM ^^what he said.

You might as will hit your enemy with a fish.

Being alliance, I would LOVE to personally pay for the specing to dps of every horde paladin in my battle group.

PTR Notes: Wintersaber reputation easier {WoW}

Oct 30th 2007 11:34AM hmm

I have never had the time to do that. I play alot and you my time preparing for raids, raiding, or helping friends. Maybe some pvp every once in a while.

You want status for completing the most "epic" grind in the game. Fine.

/clap /clap

I can't imagine anyone pve raider or pvp gladiator that would be in the slightest way impressed by that. Perhaps you need your own support group because there only only the tiniest sliver of players that find any merit in that accomplishment.

Especially now when... oh ALL of the mounts look more impressive.

Breakfast Topic: Is adding a tank class solving the tank shortage? {WoW}

Oct 23rd 2007 11:15AM There isnt a shortage of tanks. There is a shortage of tanks stupid enough to put themselves through the meat grinder of pugging with the idiots which make up your average pug.

You might also say their is a shortage of raiding guilds which don't require people to fill out an application. Same idea.

Deathknights wont change it. Viable druid/pally tanks won't change it. No one wants to tank for your pug because of the high level of idiocy.
