Aug 19th 2008 6:19PM The tauren figure is the deluxe figure for Series 3, I got to see him at Comic Con. He's HUGE. Not sure why they didnt post pics of him here....
Here's the pic I got of him at ComicCon, sorry so blurry....
Tauren Hunter - Korg Highmountain - 9.5" high x 12.5" wide - Available in December 2008 -
Aug 12th 2008 11:31AM I got to see a lot of these figures at comic con, and tried to buy the starter kit, but they sold out VERY quickly.
The figures are EXTREMELY detailed and would be awesome to just collect and have sans the game itself.
The really cool thing they had was a "miniature" of Onyxia herself. And so much for mini, she was about the size of a small dog! The figures all stand about 1.5-2inches tall, and she is a bit less than a foot tall with a 2 foot wingspan, she's HUGE. I don't know how much she'll cost (if she goes on sale at all) but I'd get it just because!
Was going to post some links to the pics I had from ComicCon, but there's apparently a 3 URL limit for posting here.... :(
Jul 28th 2008 5:26AM I was also at this panel this week and thought it would be important to note that there was not a single WoW Dev on the panel. The person that answered most of the questions was a "Blizzard Representative" not a game dev. The audience seemed pretty irritated that people were asking questions related to game-play mechanics such as itemization for hybrids and if warriors were going to become obsolete. Kind of a waste of time IMO, but it didn't help that the panel was just called "World of Warcraft" and not something more useful like "World of Warcraft Merchandising" or "WoW Expanded" or something like that.
Jun 19th 2008 12:45PM Here's my critter. Inspired by this post and it was the best I could think of after not sleeping the past 18 hours or so >.<
Gonna go to sleepz now...
Jun 10th 2008 12:16PM I'd love to change my main's look. She's a troll shaman with the "half ponytail" hairstyle in light blue, and the "soft/nice/not rage-filled" face. I originally wanted her to be a young troll, just starting out in the big, wide world of Azeroth, but unfortunatly, she just ended up looking like Female Troll Clone #374849572729303. *EVERY* Troll female on my server has the EXACT SAME FACE, and nearly all of them have the same hairstyle. UGH.
Jan 10th 2008 10:05AM I won't be leaving WoW any time soon. However, breaks are always nice. I recently was trying to get my shaman her Season 1 Enhancement set, but PVP in my battle group sucks so bad that I gave up and respected her back to Resto. I'd like to get her resto set...but....yeah...not gonna happen.
I started leveling a warrior, which is totally fun. But unfortunately, I just haven't had the desire to log in lately like I used to, except to talk to my guild mates. So, I've decided to take a short break, and am currently playing Final Fantasy 12 and a cute little free MMO called DOMO (Dream of Mirror Online). It's adorable, and fun to play.
I don't think I'll ever QUIT Wow, but I must admit, a break is nice. Playing 3 years straight can kinda take it out of you I guess :P
Dec 21st 2007 12:09PM I never understood the fascination with warriors. I just couldn't understand why anyone would want to play such a boring class. I mean, come on, *all* you do is beat on things. That's it, end of story...or so I thought.
I have one character of each class, all Horde, all female (yes, I'm a girl IRL, OH NOEZ! ALERT TEH INTARWEBS!) and I felt I could never really grasp a warrior. They were just too boring. My first class was a shaman, I love her to death, but, I never felt she was really good as a melee class. I leveled her resto (with friends) and then, recently, decided to go enhancement with her. I've got her most of the Season 1 gear and she's a fairly decent little DPSer, but still very much a glass cannon.
Anyway, I have several characters over level 60, including 2 level 70s (shaman and mage, warlock and druid almost there). Being enhancement made me start to wonder about what it would be like to fight and never run out of mana. I have a friend that has a level 70 warrior, and watching him made me think about my poor little abandoned level 30 tauren warrior, Ayashe (little one).
So, I started playing her again. One of the reasons I stopped playing with her was because I *hated* having to generate rage. Granted, this was way way way back before they tweaked the warriors to make things a bit smoother. I don't think I'd played my warrior for at least a year. So, I was fairly reluctant. However, a friend had just started leveling a holy priest and asked if I wouldn't mind being his meat sheild, so I said Ok.
OH. MY. GOD. She is so much fun to play! I'm a total warrior-noob, but I'm having fun anyway. My level 70 warrior friend was kind enough to sit down and help me with my gear and specc so I'm doing fairly well now (my stuff was *really* screwy before, which probably had a lot to do with why I hated my warrior).
I know, this is a long post, sorry :P I just wanted to say that I have become totally re-inspired (WoW has been getting slightly stale lately) and almost obsessed with my wee lil warrior. She's just amazing. Every day I learn more and more about what they can do. It's *not* *just* bashing on things. You get to bash them, insult them, scream at them, control them, make them soil themselves and not having to be restricted by how much mana you have, it's so freeing! It's great!!!
Even though I consider myself a fairly experienced player, playing a warrior is so new I may as well have bought WoW yesterday. It's amazing and I can't wait to level her and learn more. She's currently level 35, and rising quickly thanks to the new leveling stuff. I will continue to read Matthew Rossi's warrior posts with great interest so I can be the best warrior I can be :D Oh, and I'm sure I'll have tons of questions too :D
While I'm still too little to use a lot of the advice in your columns, they're good things to know for the future. Now I just have to get my action bars comfortable and I think I'll be good to go.
Thank you Matthew Rossi!
