BlizzCon 2011: Overview of PVE Scenarios {WoW}

Oct 21st 2011 7:49PM i enjoyed the PQs in Warhammer. Give the PQs a good old WoW shine and i'm down.

The Queue: Helena Beat {WoW}

Sep 30th 2011 4:00PM yeah, the ban email was legit.

i logged into my bnet account and only the trial account was banned (my paid account was fine). clicking on the trial account in the list led to a "this account is banned" screen.

I opened a web ticket and the account was restored within about 10 minutes. they reset my bnet pw, gave a generic response about suspicious activity, and resolved the ticket.

I would like to have asked for more details on the why/how but doesn't seem like i'll get a real answer. checked my trial char and he was exactly where i had parked him.

Sep 30th 2011 1:15PM Question for The Queue in the same vein as Andre's account banning.

I created a trial account for the sole purpose of being able to make a raid for my main to farm old raid gear for transmogrification. I had some trouble getting random players to help make a raid group late at night and the additional trial account was clearly the path of least resistance.

Today, I received an email that my trial account was banned for: "Terms of Use Violation -- Exploitative Activity: Abuse of the Economy."

This trial account was only used for leveling the alt to 10 and being able to be part of a raid group with my main, is this truly an Abuse of the Economy?

If the trial account was a paid account that was used in the exact same manner, would it also be subject to a ban on similar grounds?

Also, I use an authenticator for my b.net account.

Sep 16th 2011 1:19PM you want to tank him so the knockback sends you flying on top of the rock before the lava. you will take minimal fall damage when done correctly. was very doable at 80, even easier at 85. good luck!

The Queue: The Hangover {WoW}

Jan 1st 2011 5:12PM there is no feature i want more than this. i feel they are moving slowly towards this with the merging of groups, but can't get here fast enough. i have good friends that play on pve servers who refuse to play on pvp servers, and it would be great to be able to share/run instances with them.

bonus, if we could cross server invite regardless of faction. (e.g. like the transformation in CoT instances.. transform the stragglers to the faction of the majority, or just run mixed ally/horde groups)

blizzard, get busy!

Dec 14th 2010 2:09PM since the instances are all pretty dark (the indoor ones anyways), I've found the bright pink pig to be the one that stands out the most. plus he get's a macro'd blue box on his head.

my sheep macro looks like:

/focus
/script SetRaidTarget("target", 6);
/cast Polymorph(Pig)

that way i can keep track of it via the focus target.

Dec 14th 2010 2:04PM I've made an initial hello macro that tells the tank to mark sheep with a box (my macro'd cc icon) and to say go when ready for the sheep pull. It has helped out a ton. and don't forget to counterspell that lone caster that's outside the tank's pack to help bring it in. every little bit helps.

i've also run with tons of other cc capable classes that simply stared blankly when asked to cc. i had a rogue respond last night that sap wasn't on his bars! after watching the rogue finally sap something a few pulls in i think it had to be the rogue's first sap ever (took almost a solid minute to get the sap down).

i do welcome the return to BC style trash (at least the trash packs aren't as dense as in vanilla).
