Mar 8th 2008 6:02PM If they are actually doing this, then they have gotten quite desperate in their attempts to get easy and quick gold.
"Desperate" isn't the word I'd use. "Brazen" or "ballsy," maybe.
Feb 19th 2008 3:50PM B3 - thanks, this is a great overview. I can't wait for next week. Are you going to cover attack rotation? I have been playing around with when/in what order to lay down my attacks and thus far it has been a Countdown Timer Management issue between FFF, DMR, Mangle, and Lacerate, with Swipe or Maul being my main attack when those are all ticking away happily. I would love to get your take.
Feb 18th 2008 3:15PM My main is a 70 Nelf, but the Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator still has the prime top-left slot in my bank just because of how awesome it looks. It's perhaps the most incongruous piece of gear a Nelf could wear, with it's wee little satellite dish, but God help me, I love that damn gizmo.
Jan 30th 2008 10:29AM I suppose one could get around this, and enjoy the benefits of hopping off the train if they forgot something, by only clicking one stop at a time when one takes a flight. The downside would be having to stay at your computer through an entire 10 minutes of flying, plus having to talk to each flight master and re-click.
Jan 27th 2008 12:04AM They're professionals... they get PAID to blog. We SHOULD hold them to higher standards.
They do, day in and day out. That's why Wow Insider has such a high volume of consistently good posts.
Given the number of posts that go up on this page every day that are free of glaring grammatical errors, I think the writers and editors have MORE than earned an occasional mulligan. It's their job to police their own content; thus far I think they've put forth an admirable effort. It's not our job to call them out for their occasional lapses (unless and until they become more than occasional, that is).
Perfection is a fantastic goal but it's a lousy requirement because by definition it's impossible to achieve, at least consistently. The more posts there are on Wow Insider, the higher the likelihood that one (or more) of them will have a mistake. That's not a big deal. That's just the nature of everything under the sun. Demanding perfection will not yield perfection. The only sure fire result is eventual disappointment, every time.
So I say, back off. The writers and editors of this site do a damn fine job 7 days a week. That fact is borne out by the readers who come back, day after day. If you're like me, you come back because you think the information and commentary here are some of the best around. If you're coming back because you're looking to keep score on all of the grammatical errors you found that the writers and editors missed, I suggest you may be missing the point.
Jan 23rd 2008 11:03AM Shadow Council was a mess last night; or at least Outlands and (from what I heard) BGs were, anyway. I was playing my Druid and had to run from Telaar to Throne of Elements 3 times because I kept getting booted when the WS crashed, and when it came back up I got bungied wayyyyy back to where I'd started running.
One interesting effect I'd never seen before: I was mounted and went to re-up MotW; the spell dismounted me graphically, but I still had the Mounted buff. Remember that game Strider? That's how my Druid was running, even in the water. Hilarious!
Jan 9th 2008 10:01AM Regarding the bounty for Gruul: Greed will ALWAYS be a motivating factor in human affairs. It's one of the only motivators more powerful than abject poverty, in fact. Might as well harness that power than beat your head against it, I say. Yay capitalism!
Jan 4th 2008 4:43PM THANK YOU for finally having the guts to bring this topic to the fore.
I have been lobbying Blizzard for MONTHS to program in-game cans of paint that could be thrown on characters who wear leather armor, but so far my complaints have fallen on deaf ears. But what can we expect from a company that glorifies the wanton slaughter of animals, rewards players for dragging defenseless fish from the water (suffocating them!), and actually makes players STRONGER when they go out an hunt, kill, cook and EAT animals. This are just a few of the atrocities against nature that are perpetuated in WarCraft. FOR SHAME, BLIZZARD.
