Nov 2nd 2010 7:39PM Their bouncing breasts weren't in the game at launch. Needless to say, I was horrified when they did add it. Blizzard actually spent time deciding it'd be a great idea to put in the game, and then actually creating the animation. A waste of time and resources, if you ask me.
Aug 25th 2010 1:40PM Question --> What the heck happened to treasure chests in Wrath? I haven’t seen any in Northrend. At all. Not a single one. Will they be returning in Cata?

Jul 19th 2010 12:08AM Wands make a huge difference when leveling a lowbie priest (and mage and warlock). The level 5 & 13 wands enchanters can make are better than any other of the same level. Sadly, that isn't the case for the higher level wands crafted by enchanters.
With a wand, a level 5 priest's rotation would look something like:
Smite, SW:P, wand, wand, wand. Dead.

You can't change your name on your account.

Jun 29th 2010 2:57PM I’ve been playing since release and never knew about this NPC until I happened to be in the zone and saw her yelling. I “wowheaded” her name, as opposed to “googled,” and rushed off to find her. The trinket turned out to be quite handy for a quick getaway when stealing Thunder Bluff’s flame.
Jun 24th 2010 2:38PM I’ve come to the same conclusion as Tony, and replied with my own thoughts on the matter. In its current form, RealID seems to be best used for people who don’t have privacy issues or concerns with the people they would add as RealID friends. It’s actually a great communication tool for such a condition. Perhaps Tony was downrated for his implying that people who have a problem with it are “children in hiding.” But his assessment of RealID, in its current form, is quite accurate.
To that end, the “friend of friend” feature doesn’t necessarily support this position and I hope it’s something Blizz reconsiders.
Jun 24th 2010 2:09PM I was apprehensive of RealID at first and planned to not participate. But, it turned out to be a great thing for me and the real life friends and family I play with… all six of us. I’ve found that RealID does a better job of notifying you when they log on. You get a distinct “so and so has come online” message that you can’t miss. I would often miss the default notification because it just scrolls by in chat when I’m busy BGing or grouping. Better yet, I no longer have to go to the guild tab to see if anyone’s playing. The new social tab lets me know how many friends are on the moment I enter Azeroth, and with a click of a button I can see who’s on (vs. switching between friends & guild tabs).
So this has turned out to be a pretty cool thing for us.
It essentially breaks down any communication barriers between people with whom you are comfortable 1) knowing your real name; 2) giving your email address; and 3) knowing your alts and other servers you play on. The status thing is fantastic! It’s a nice way to share information that won’t get missed. The guild message of the day can easily be missed if you log on and walk away while the screen loads (to get a snack, pick up the phone, whatever). Besides, it’s not the best place to share personal information. With the new status feature, I can let the other 4 people in our crew (5 th person is the hubby) know I’ll be gone for a few days. We don’t always catch each other online, so it can’t always be communicated beforehand. Or I could announce that I have Friday off and ask if anyone else will be around.
Really, this is a very cool thing for us small, close-knit, groups of friends/family.
Regarding 2) above, it might be a good idea to use an exclusive email address just for your battle.net login. Especially with what seems to be an increased level of account hacks. Don’t use this exclusive email address for anything else at all (forums, blogs, sending email, etc.).
