Dec 1st 2007 12:46AM I'm an altoholic and ran low on rested xp on my 65 lock so I decided to take my 39 hunter for a spin in Dustwallow to check out the new quests. He had 150% rested to start and I hit lvl 44 before he ran out of rested in about 5 hours of play in Dustwallow. I then ran Tanaris to get my LWing up from scorpid scales and got halfway to 45 before I started questing in Tanaris. Only problem I saw was that my pet seemed to be at least 1 level behind me from the accelerated leveling (I know they are working on this for the next patch I think). At this rate I should have my 29 mage to 40 in no time.
Nov 11th 2007 2:22AM When I first started playing I started on Shadow Council server where I had RL friends. Within 4 months of playing SC started having ques when I would log after work and I had about 2-3 hours of play time at night and spent 30-45 minutes in a que. Blizz offered free transfers to Sisters of Elune and after being DCed several times and having to wait in a que again, I decided to transfer my main and alts to SoE.
Since then it has been decent, but it is a low pop and like many have said, it is hard to find groups to instance or group quests. Since transfering I have leveled 2 70's and 2 more into their 60's. I have thought about going back to SC, but to transfer my toons would cost $100+ and don't like spending that much money.
I have looked at http://www.warcraftrealms.com/index.php to see the pop of my server and it is comparable to what I have seen while playing. Like Friday night I was playing late at night and there were 6 people in HP and 5 people in Zang when I was looking to find some people to do group quests.
I think that Blizz should do some sort of special deal for transfering multiple toons at one time. 1st is $25, 2nd $20, 3rd $10, etc. and do a bulk move of all toons for a set price i.e $75 thus saving people some money and allowing for people unsatisfied with low pop realms to do so without the stress of having to come up with a lot of money that some people might not have.
Server merges would be the ideal, but there would be a lot of headaches due to the name issues with toons and guilds which I don't see any way of resolving it without pissing people off.
Hopefully with the new expansion, it will bring new people to WoW and enable low pop realms to be infused with new blood.
Nov 2nd 2007 5:33PM I need to win, need a new game to play!
Sep 27th 2007 1:29PM Looking at this from a Resto Shammy, the water shield improvement looks sweet for mp5. Be able to cast ES on tank and WS on me and get free mana every minute, with mana spring increase and mana tide I should never run out of mana, even spam healing!
With the lower cast time on LB, it actually might boost my dps so that I might kill a regular mob in under 5 minutes!!!!
