You know you play too much WoW if... {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 2:11PM True story.

I was getting really bored one day, so I decided to press O and bring up the social screen to see if any of my friends were online.
It was at that point that I realized I was standing in line at the school cafeteria, and I had just poked a hole in my pizza...

Around Azeroth: Nature's hot tub {WoW}

Dec 14th 2008 5:32PM This also happens to be why Thorium Brotherhood is avoided a fair bit by mainstream RP'ers these days!

I'm still going through therapy after what that server did for me...

On an off note, that troll druid in the center owes me money!

Phat Loot Phriday: Arcanite Reaper {WoW}

Nov 1st 2008 6:44PM I've got a great story to tell about this one.

Alright, back in the day, I used to have my main (Who is now a 70 prot warrior) back on the server Thorium Brotherhood, which was created post BC - I saw a lot of people running around with the Arcanite Reaper, and I used to have my own little dreams of having one. Heck, the person whom I considered my mentor in warrior leveling would always come out brandishing one with his full valor set.
Now, I forgot about this gem when BC came out, as I was enthralled with getting some of the great crystal-style gear for my warrior, and saw less and less of the Arcanite Reaper - I still knew it was around, its just that so few people used it, and all of thsoe people were just bringing it out to show off in Role Play scenarios.
Time passed, and I transferred my main to Moon Guard (which was created at the time BC came out) and thats when I really started rolling in the gold. I figured "Hey, I'm rich now, why don't I go back and try to buy one of those Arcanite Reapers as a piece of history?"
Didn't occur to me at the time - No one hordeside had that recipe. At all. Seriously. I heard rumors about a high end raider who transferred from another server who had the recipe, but he had quit the game. I literally searched for days on end to find a blacksmith who could make me one.
My devotion to the crown jewel of warrior heritage finally brought me to a conclusive course of action - If I couldn't FIND a blacksmith who could make an Arcanite Reaper, I would have to MAKE a blacksmith that could do so. I called out in trade for a high level blacksmith (Who happened to be a blood elf paladin - Irony) to join me. For several hours, we went in and out of LBRS, went through six or seven resets, and killed the recipe dropper twice - The third time, we came out with the know-how of the Arcanite Reaper.

I felt victorous.

At least until I realized I was still going to have to pay for mats, crafting, and the time it took from his schedule to do this... But blastencrapper, IT WAS WORTH IT.

Forum post of the day: Random acts of kindness {WoW}

Jul 20th 2008 1:30PM Ah, this is something that I encourage incredibly... Just the other day, I came across a situation such as this.

A sort of 'I scratch your back, you stun the elites im attacking' deal.

Myself and four other horde 70's were down at the Outer Black Temple zone the other day, doing "Varedis Must Be Stopped!". We were about to swoop down and take out the first of the demon hunters when our DPS warrior DC'd. Now, I'm a tank - I know that when DPS goes missing, Im in trouble, because a healer only has so much mana (especially when your getting healed by a shadow priest). I kinda paniced.
We waited a few moments for the fellow to reconnect, when I see this Draenei Paladin down on the terrace, surrounded by 20-some odd Demon Hunter Apprentices that had aggroed onto him when a couple of blood elf rogues dropped aggro on the poor fellow. I have an unfortunately soft heart, a possible flaw for a barbaric troll warrior, so I jumped on down, and grabbed as much aggro as I could, allowing the Paladin (who was at this point, completely drained of mana) the precious few moments to bandage himself, and down the enemies. Afterwards, he thanked me, we saluted eachother, and i went back to wait for the DPS warrior.
The group decides they're going to drop him because he's been DC'd so long. I was kinda depressed by this - I've been trying to get a group for Varedis for literally MONTHS now, what are the chances someone else would join us? Whatever. We land, and are eyeing up the first demon hunter, wondering if we can four-man him...

...Then the Paladin comes up. /points at the hunter, /points at me, and /shrugs. Cross-faction language to signal he wanted to repay the favor.

Sure enough, we did 5 man all the demon hunters - But with 4 hordies, and 1 draenei paladin. I wish I had gotten his name, woulda liked to hop alliance side and thank him.

WoW Moviewatch: Ahn'Qiraj, The Movie {WoW}

Jun 11th 2008 8:37AM WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THIS MOVIE ROCKS! Been waiting to see this on Moviewatch for an eternity! Best piece of machinima -ever- in my opinion... Its one of the few things that, just by random coinsidence, can get your blood pumping. I make sure to pop this up on my laptop when I'm running Magisters Terrace on my main so that im more alert... Really helps :D

Know Your Lore: The Wrynn dynasty {WoW}

Apr 4th 2008 12:21PM HOLY CRAP! *looks at his book again*


IT'S WRYNN? It looks like JAMES BOND on a bad day!
HOW did JAMES BOND get captured by the DEFIAS?

Blizz needs to think about lore-logic some more. No one can beat james bond.

Blizzard announces Tauren Marines as the latest Starcraft 2 unit {WoW}

Apr 1st 2008 8:26PM I've got no beef against milking an idea, but this one is RIDICULOUS.

Breakfast Topic: The long run {WoW}

Mar 31st 2008 8:53AM I honestly must admit, my most hated 'run' in the game is actually a high-speed mounted one. From the Cenarion Expedition Outpost in Zangarmarsh to Shattrath. I will regularily DC if my character hasnt been to Shat before, and it makes the prospect of leaving the marsh very very discouraging.

Series 3 action figures incoming! {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2008 1:52PM I won't complain about the detail of these characters. Personally, a friend got his hands on the Thargas Anvilmar figure, gave it to me a week before they were actually being sold in the store, and I was happy to see that the armor actually differed greatly from the in-game version. However, seeing this set, and looking over Anvilmar and the whats-his-face shaman from the comic book (his figureine that is) its just making me angry. I mean, how hard would it be for WoW to give a bit of 'depth' to the armor? Instead of just mashing on a texture over the character model, and bulking out his wrists to represent gauntlets, why can't they do what happened with Guild Wars, where all the armor (even the bloody underwear) had a seperate model from the character? If the in-game models looked a little more like these sculptures, even if its just a flat surface sticking out where a chestplate would be, then the game could probably get some interesting feedback from a world that is quickly outclassing its older graphics.
