Nov 20th 2007 8:22AM I like the daily quests - as long as you don't get stuck in thinking that they must be done every day, they're actually a pretty fun way to get rep and gold.
And making the endgame more accessible can't come fast enough for me. Personally, I love to raid. My main is geared well enough to handle anything up to maybe SSC. But I just can't put up with the BS and drama of your typical raiding guild (again). If Bliz makes it so that I can raid Arthas with people I actually like -- even though they may not be the most hardcore of players -- I'll be a happy boy.
Nov 19th 2007 7:18AM I always regarded "veteran rewards" as a tacit bribe for sticking with an aging game when there are other, better options available. Right now, I don't think anyone needs any extra reason to stick with WoW.
I've been playing WoW since the closed Beta, I'm one of the people who would be given these rewards (and I've received such rewards in several past games). But things like this inevitably eat up more and more dev resources, at the very least because they have to come up with new and better rewards every year. I'd rather have regular infusions new content, like we saw in Patch 2.3 (which, in almost any other game, would have been a paid expansion). That's the sort of thing that'll going to keep me playing.
Nov 18th 2007 9:07AM If he can find 39 other people who want to take part, more power to him. I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole though - I honestly don't think there was a single aspect of the game that was not improved by TBC. Dliberately avoiding the expansion content like that seems a little bit like hooking a black-and-white TV up to your satallite dish because you think the shows were better in the 1960s.
Anyhow, I'm wondering exactly how they're going to enforce the talent point restriction, since most of the talent trees were completely rewritten in 2.0. Are Feral Druids still required to suck?
Oct 5th 2007 2:56PM It makes sense to me that Dalaran would be a neutral city. After all, the Kirin Tor was formed in part by both High Elves (future Blood Elves) and mages from Tirisfal (future Forsaken). And yes, there are tensions in Silverpine at the moment, but politics change and history contantly moves forward. If, in the real world, the United States can be allied with Japan and Germany, then in the pretend world of Warcraft, Dalaran can declare its neutrality.
