Nov 21st 2006 3:07PM Definitely battlegrounds. It was the first time "real" PvP was introduced to the game. Mixed with the honor system (though flawed) and cross-realm battlegrounds, instanced PvP has become my favorite WoW pastime.
Nov 14th 2006 1:03PM For lock picking I tend to throw a gold their way, that seems plenty since it required minimal effort on their part. For low-level enchants I do about the same, though I have an alt at level 200 enchanting that does most of that. For high-level enchants, however, those that require 300 skill, and especially those that are a hard-to-get recipe, I tip as much as 15g. I think I tipped 10g for +22 int, and 20g for +30 spell damage. And that's on top of mats.
Nov 13th 2006 2:35AM Hmm, well they certainly shouldn't stop transfers to any server, even the more populated ones. I am keeping in mind those players who meet friends in real life who play, and want to transfer to the same server to play together. It would suck to find out that one of your best friend plays WoW and then find out that you can't transfer to his server due to its population. I agree that they should, however, offer free transfers off of those servers that frequently have long queues.
Nov 10th 2006 5:04PM Mage, because our spellbook is just a bag of tricks. Everything we cast is another trick up our sleeve. And oh, I can't live without my precious blink. :)
Nov 3rd 2006 4:57PM Mages:
1. Reduced blink cooldown, less mana.
2. No evocation cooldown.
3. PoM, Pyroblast, and Ice Barrier (from trainer, not talents).
4. Spell damage increase from intellect.
5. Blazing Speed whenever you take damage.
Oct 27th 2006 8:55PM That was incredibly well-edited for being such a bad movie. Though I must admit I did enjoy his "sweet moves".
Oct 27th 2006 8:28AM Normally I would refrain from making two posts on the same subject at all costs, but I feel this is important enough, and needs to be mentioned.
Oct 27th 2006 8:19AM This is a wonderful idea. You sift through those posts and find the funny ones so I don't have to. Too much time swimming through all that bile makes me want to puke my own kneecaps. (How's that for an image?)
In regards to "Ninjapirate should spend less time playing WoW and more time trying discover the meaning of the word 'homosexual'", I feel inclined to point out that the forum-dwellers most likely spend more time trolling threads than shredding Trolls. That is, they spend less time in Azeroth than the rest of us, and spend more time roaming "teh internets" in search of poor, helpless letters to corrupt, contorting them into little groupings that appear to be words, but are in fact small, digital idols to Satan himself. This may surprise you, but if you think Barrens chat was rough, or if you have trouble dealing with the LFG channel, then spend some time in the WoW Forums. It may just make you shit your socks and cry your own blood.
Sorry, I went off on a rant there. I'm in a creative writing class right now, and it's made me a bit too wordy. The point is, the people on the forums spend more time there than in the game itself, which may lead to skewed views of the game, as in Ninjapirate's case. To say he has received "at least 6 random tells" is a clear exaggeration or misconception, one easily avoided by...oh, I don't know, playing the game? (im a guy btw)
Oct 25th 2006 11:52PM This could be evidence that they are considering the Warrior class for Blood Elves. After all, even if you're addicted to magic it's not hard to pick up a sword and shield, then go out and bash stuff. That's the impression I got, anyway, when I first began playing, and noticed it as the only universal class.
