Jul 7th 2010 1:00PM This, to me, is one of the reasons why Blizzard makes great games. They're not afraid to scrap a system or idea that just isn't quite working and start all over again. This definitely sounds like they're on the right track - imagine how much fun it'll be when every talent point really means something. Plus, this gives them lots of room to make really interesting and fun talent specs. I was one of those who were underwhelmed by the earlier talent revision - this definitely has more potential.
Jun 29th 2010 9:58AM Personally I think the auto-complete/next quest thing is genius. A prime example of Blizzard solving a problem everyone assumed was hardwired to the genre. I'm just curious how they implement it. It'd be a bit jarring if the new quest just "pops up" out of the blue with no indication of communication with the quest giver. I'm assuming it may be something like a drop (some sort of special item or book) that triggers the next chain on it's own. In any case, if they do this right (and I have faith they will), then questing/leveling is going to be even quicker and smoother than ever. Love it love it love it.
Jun 4th 2010 12:58PM Kind of lost steam 3/4 through, but the final scene makes up for it. I'd rather the whole movie was more focused on the human newb. The long stare at the end was just perfect.
May 25th 2010 5:22PM "Go go go go" guy is painfully accurate. It's the whole reason I stopped trying to tank pugs (especially since I was still gearing him up). There's enough pressure as it is without some asshat yelling "GO! GOGOGOGOGO!" at you the whole time.
I'll take a "Ready?" tank over a "GOGOGOGO!" DPSer any day.
May 22nd 2010 12:36AM This may be the best Phat Loot article yet. I had never heard of this shirt and now I want one so bad (helps that I'm a hordie for life). I love it.
May 3rd 2010 1:35PM My new favorite "music video". Who knew the master of droll sarcasm had such a sentimental streak? I predict this will go down as the ultimate "old world" tribute after Cata hits.
Apr 27th 2010 9:34AM 7 "daily" points per week! What a great idea. They really need a way to let us play without feeling like we're losing out if we skip a day. I think this idea solves it handily and could be applied to all dailies eventually. Imagine missing a few days and then just catching up in a long session. So much less stressful and, more importantly, fun.
Apr 21st 2010 12:22PM Been staring at this picture for 10 minutes and I still can't make out the Tauren. I know where he's supposed to be, but can't figure out what I'm looking at. Is it just me?
Anyway, love the cowering gnome.
Apr 15th 2010 11:45AM This idea is pure WIN. I love it. Even if it was a temporary "oh sh*t" talent on a 10-min cool down, it would be awesome. Some would say they could never balance it as a permanent talent, but they managed with Titan's Grip now, didn't they?
