WoW Moviewatch: Herpi Derpi I was bored {WoW}

Jul 10th 2009 5:14PM Wow - Moviewatch must really be scratching the bottom of the barrel if this is on here. I used to think this segment was pathetically comical... seems it's simply devolved into pathetic.

Are Death Knights autowin in PvP part II {WoW}

Feb 10th 2009 7:45PM Is it just me or are DK's not in fact a "Hero Class", by their very nature should they not be harder to kill, tougher and have lots of goodies.

I don't play a DK, My main is an 80 Priest with an 80 Rogue Alt and DK's clear the floor with me many times, not all but a good portion with either class. I chalk it up to... a) sucking at PVP (Cause seriously, I suck) and b) It's a damned Hero Class and I'm just a lowly Priest, WTF can I do?.

Not the end of the world; it's actually a lot of fun going up against a DK or a even a slew of em.

Preparing for Wrath Day 2: The dying wallet {WoW}

Nov 11th 2008 11:26AM As a casual player the only way I've really been able to save up any money is by having two gathering skills, skinning/minning. I've had the forgo the joy of a crafting prof for now but for the peace of mind that is not worrying about my coin at all times, it's been worth it I think.

I just hit 60 on my first character, belf rogue, and I had saved up just a bit over 2,300 + Gold, after my epic mount and a few thorium/leather sales I'm right back to 1,900 + today. I'd imagine I will continue to try to keep up through 70 and into 80.

Raiding without addons {WoW}

Jan 28th 2008 4:23PM I'm one of those poor saps that generaly dislike add-ons. Do I see the value behind them or why people use them? Absolutely. As seems to be a repeating statement on the comments here, information is good and sometimes the information on the standard UI is simply insuffeicent.

But again, I generaly don't like using them myself. Partly because I hate managing them, I hate installing and the work it takes to get them to work properly, I hate that in some raiding situations I'm all but forced to use them for the betterment and survivability of my groups and most of all I hate the fact that I'm sometimes viewed as a less experienced player because of my lack of affinity for these crazy things.

I've been playing WoW since launch and a priest nearly that entire time without any major breaks in between. I know my class and my roll. An add-on can't do what my experience has taught me over time... not that I'm bitter or anything :).

Ready Check: Is Transfering the solution? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2008 4:11PM My guild actually calls this outsourcing and whilst it does happen now and then that we'll get a request from a good raider from another server, it's typically not the route we prefer to take newbies on board.

One of our favorite things to do as a raiding guild is to take a not-so-experienced (or well geared) player from our own server and give them the opportunity to join. If they're willing to put in the time and dedication, we're willing to help. We'll help them get keyed, attuned and geared. We bring them along on as many 5 man heroics and raids as possible and let them learn through experience.

Typicaly a new member such as this will be assigned a peer, someone who's comfortable with their class or role to help smooth along the process and someone as a primary point of contact to learn from and to answer questions when they come up. We have a very open policy when it comes to questions, there is literaly no dumb questions in our guild!

By doing this we've found that not only are we creating really great quality players, giving opportunity to those who may not have been given a chance by more "serious" raiding guilds but we're developing friendships within our guild and that for us, even before raid progression, is what is most important.

Yes what we do takes time and to be very honest we've had times when people have taken advantage of our policy by gearing up and leaving later but this is BY FAR seldom happens anymore.

Another thing you have to take into account is player loyalty. Because of our devotion to them, our guild members are extremely devoted to us. Sure their might be bigger raiding guilds out there but we've all played hard together, we've all given up a little for each other. That's bond that's hard to break and for my guild... I wouldn't have it any other way.

Blizzard wants you... and your questions {WoW}

Jan 18th 2008 12:00PM Dear Morthagrid,

To give basement dwellers something to complain about... forever!

Yours Truly,
Blizzard

WotLK is one of Yahoo!'s most anticipated games of 2008 {WoW}

Jan 7th 2008 4:47PM I love Warcraft, L.O.V.E IT! but I'm sorry, I just can't kick the star wars geek girl out of me...

Unleased all the way for me! I pray to Elune LA doesn't let this one be a complete bust...

The Art of War(craft): Outdoor PvP, part II - an Outlandish war {WoW}

Jan 7th 2008 1:25PM My personal oppinion on world pvp is that for the most part it offers absolutely nothing substancial. Sure the gear from some pvp/rep grinds can be nice (as well as patterns and such), and yes the stat bonuses are nice too, nothing at all wrong with any of that. But how about making world pvp meaningful?

Can the dev's not think of something that would actually give me a vested interest for myself, my guild and my faction to actually go and fight for. How about thinking of something innovative? Give me a reason to go back and lay seige to a town, bring the war back in warcraft and come up with something that let me fight for a cause as opposed to purple pixels.

Don't get me wrong, I like gear rewards, that's what WoW has been about since it launched and will most likely always be about getting that next really great, awesome looking equipment but it would be nice to have world pvp, or any sort of pvp for that matter, that actually offered some sort of meaningful reason to partake.

Breakfast Topic: Attractive men {WoW}

Jan 4th 2008 8:19AM Agree completely with Mel (#2)! Well said...

If it wasn't for that hump-back/hunch thing that's going on, male trolls would be the bomb fo-sure.

But yeah, raawwrr on the male belfs. They can ask me to the dance any day of the week ;).

Officers' Quarters: When your mate is a member {WoW}

Dec 31st 2007 12:07PM My boyfriend and I both play WoW and are in vitually the same situation as Scott mentions above. He is a co-GL but I am an officer and class leader for the guild also so that certainly helps as I have a small idea of what he goes through in terms of responsibilities.

That being said, I think we do well because we understand each others point of view on the game. He is by far a more "hardcore" player than I, I do then to have more downtime and quite enjoy just logging in to chat and catch up with friends as where his playtime is often taken up with raiding and other leader'ish duties. I help out when and however I can but am contant to helping with recruits and chipping in with raiding here and there.

We're extremely happy with our hobby that is WoW, some couples play cards together, some take dance or paint lessons together. We spend some of spare time in WoW and have a wonderful time at it.

I will say this though, the first time I beat my boy at our monthly guild duel tournament he heard about it for months!!! (Even though I'd lost more times than I'd care to admit in the past) If you ask him, that's probably the biggest pain of having a girlfriend in guild... the gloating :)
