The Queue: So much awesome it hurts. Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow. {WoW}

Feb 17th 2010 9:45AM I'm exalted with the alliance reps. When I talk to an elder, though, I get 75 "alliance" rep. How do I tell where I am with the alliance? Can I get to exalted? Does it count as an exalted rep for the achievements?

The Queue: Go lay down {WoW}

Jan 26th 2010 1:50PM I'd say it's likely that Kodos are warm blooded. They're just as active at night (in a desert!) as during the day. Something is keeping them warm. It might be all that hair they've apparently got, but it seems more likely that they've got some temperature regulation going on.

The Queue: Not quite mutual destruction {WoW}

Jan 14th 2010 3:05PM I'd be okay with a major retcon of all the old instances!

Blizzard seems to be reluctant to do major retcons, though. I vaguely remember a minor panic on the Blizzard side when they realized that the Draenai story didn't work.

However, Deathwing might reorganize some of the instances a bit. Certainly the ones around Blackrock would have to be scrambled a bit. Surely Gnomer's story could progress a bit.

I guess I'd argue to Blizzard that you don't have to turn an instance into a heroic for level 85's to make it worthwhile. Leveling is fun again (for hybrid classes), and the leveling instances are getting traffic. They could use some resources.

Jan 14th 2010 1:49PM Quick question: Now that they've got the LFD going, are they going to update the leveling dungeons? Have they said anything?

Here's some changes I'd like to see:

Loot that's worth picking up before the end boss.

LFD goals that involve more than just the end boss. E.g.: Instead of having to kill the emperor in BRD, how about having to kill someone else some of the time? This would allow Blizzard to essentially turn old, giant instances into a variety of relatively quick dungeons.

More achievements related to the leveling dungeons.

Instance maps like the new dungeons. I've run it a million times, now, but I still get lost in Gnomer.

More sharable quests that take you to odd corners of the dungeons. Note the word "sharable". It'd be a tougher sell to get people to go to weird places for anyone but the tank without sharing it.

The Queue: A vote has been initiated to kick your dog {WoW}

Dec 11th 2009 8:40AM The LFG tool is great. However, sometimes I click "Find Group" and nothing happens. No error, no hints. One possibility is that the cross realm instance servers are down. What are some other reasons this could happen? I'd love to have a handy checklist to go through. Something like:

1. Leave raid group
2. /who Violet Hold
3. etc.

The Queue: Hump Day {WoW}

Aug 12th 2009 3:03PM Thanks for the help! Gotta remember Worgen before I roll one...

I found a few female goblins running around. Actually, they're more common than I remembered. There aren't enough to keep the species going, but at least they exist.

They're pretty darn ugly, too. I hope that changes at least somewhat. Yuck!!

Aug 12th 2009 1:21PM So, Wolvar are the new alliance race. Goblins are the new Horde race.

Are there any examples of the females of these races in the game? There must be, but I don't remember them. Anyone have screen shots they can link to?

World of Warcraft Patch 3.2 Release Patch Notes [Updated] {WoW}

Aug 4th 2009 8:47AM What does "Master's Inscriptions increased" mean?

Breakfast Topic: Is Blizzard doing faction change the right way? {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2009 8:30AM I like the idea. I wouldn't use it, but, if a fixed percentage of people use it, then it will help faction balance. That is, if a certain percentage of both sides switch, the realm will be closer to 50/50 than before.

For this reason alone, I like the change. I'm hoping all the PvP noobs switch sides and I can start winning Warsong!

Blizzard files trademark for "Cataclysm" {WoW}

Jul 1st 2009 3:11PM So, someone at wow.com has to go to Blizzcon with a t-shirt that makes them look like a minor Blizzard employee and say things like this to other Blizzard employees:

"Hey, I haven't seen you around. Are you working on Cataclysm?"

"What do you think would happen if we told everyone about the physics engine in Cataclysm?"
