Jul 24th 2009 3:07PM There are already so many types of vanity items in the game that I fail to see what harm having player housing would bring. The extra storage space would be nice, as well as being able to display trophies/armor. Plus, as Dreadskull said, every profession could get some patterns for housing items, which would only help the economy. And for those people who seem to get hung up on worrying about the cities becoming ghost towns, I wouldn't worry too much. As long as there are auction houses, banks and trainers in the cities, they'll be fine. Myself personally, I don't really care if I never see the cities bustling with the usual begging, gold sellars, people sitting on the mailboxes and naked dancing night elves.
Jul 21st 2009 10:18AM Unfortunately you're very right. Since the site is populated with so many other MMO players, a large portion of them have a real hatred of all things WoW (WOW Derangement Syndrome, anyone?). I've never understood this attitude of liking one game and hating all the rest. If you like LOTRO or WAR, for example, what's wrong with also liking WoW? If this Star Wars MMO turns out to be great, it doesn't mean you also have to immediately start hating WoW!
May 27th 2009 8:37AM Thank you very much for all the great tips and advice on your blog! I just recently leveled a new Retadin to 80 and your site was a constant source of information for me. All of us appreciate your candor and good humor, as well as the advice you give. Keep it up!
Apr 28th 2009 3:54PM Wow, could you even be a bigger jerk? It takes a lot of guts to write articles about a game that is likely more heavily scrutinized and theorycrafted than any other. Do us all a favor and take your elitist attitude somewhere else.
Mar 29th 2009 7:23PM Last I checked, it's still just a game, guys. If you're bored with it or think it's going downhill, go find something else to do.
Dec 16th 2008 1:55PM Umm, if you'd actually paid attention for a couple pages, you'd realize that everyone is saying that to get basically ANY pvp gear now requires doing arenas of some kind. So, actually, yes, if you want any gear that's even half decent for pvp, Blizz IS forcing everyone to do arenas. Wintergrasp is a lot of fun, so is SotA, but to have arena requirements on so many items is ridiculous. I have done Wintergrasp and SotA, which are both a lot of fun, but I'd rather gouge my eyes out than set foot in another arena. Maybe you should do a little fact reading yourself...
Dec 6th 2008 5:03PM I wouldn't even wrap fish with the NYT anymore. Journalistic objectivity and integrity pretty much went down the drain this election year and the NYT is the perfect example of it.
Nov 20th 2008 2:43PM Since he's going to be working for the President-elect, ask him if he'll spread the wealth around and share some of his gold with everyone. Or better yet, instead of just raiders earning their dkp, it will be shared and distributed equally among all guildies, whether they raided or not!
Oct 17th 2008 10:28AM I saw a forum thread once which suggested the 4th chest should now contain an Amani Warbear mini-pet. I like that idea!
