Jul 17th 2008 9:53AM As a rogue I got outrolled on the mainhand of the set that droped in UBRS when I already had the offhand! To a hunter that was running with dual dawns edges. He rolled need and never even equiped it. (If you're rolling need you better equip that thing when you get it, since you NEED it) when asked he and his guild leader (Who was on the run too) said he needeed it for PVP. Never ran with anyone from that guild again.
Personally I think if you have one half of a weapon set and the other half drops, then the people that already have the other half should be the only ones rolling need since it will complete the set and all. That also needs to be stated at the start of the run though. (which my guild started doing after that an no one had a problem with it)
If i had lost that roll to another rogue or even a fury warrior (IE someone that was going to have it equiped all the time) I don't think I would have been nearly as annoyed as I was losing it to someone who was only going to use it for PVP no matter what the class.
Apr 11th 2008 9:42AM You don't have to be reveared with Sha'tar to get it. Its a pre BC recipie. Its on the vendor so you don't have to go back I guess like the recipie for flask of chromatic resistance. If you don't have time to grind the rep, look up the recipie on wowhead or someplace and see where the old word place to get it is. ( Sorry its been so long I cant remember where it was)
Mar 18th 2008 12:43PM I don't RP so what happens on RP servers is really RP'ers business. What I DO have issue with however, is that as a result of this topic there are suddenly name reporting sprees on NON-RP servers. People are trolling the armory and reporting anything they see. My fried was told by a GM last night that one of the characters on his account violated the naming policy as was booted. The GM did not tell him which toon or give him anything else. (This being his FIRST naming violation) He opened wow back up expecting to have to rename his toon as we told him on vent thats what would happen and he was OK with that. What does he find when he gets to his character screen? That his main had unceremoniously been renamed Alaw for him. No option to rename it himself. Thats the type of thing I take issue with. Someone think my name offensive and I have to change it, fine. But to have a GM just slap a new name on toon feels like they want to fleece me for a $10 name change.
I'm sorry but going from the name Baybieater (He'a a Orc Lock that consumes the flesh of those he kills, even children. I think that might go even on an RP server) to a name that sounds really too close to the name of a RL religious deity is insane. Really how is that any better that what he had?
Also, some people on non-RP servers (won't speak for RP-servers because I don't know if it happens there) just report names to be jerks themseles because it is SO easy to do to aggrivate someone. They see someone in trade sellin the same item they are trying to hock and undercutting their price by 10%, they report his name. Someone gets told on trade they are immuture and childish for using racial slurs, guess what they report everyone in the trade channel that said that type thing to them to try to aggrivate the people that report them for that type of laguage.
I understand you break the policy, you have to rename. I have no issue with that. The problem is the enforcement (If I have to change at least let me pick the new one especialy on the first offense) and the reporting mechanic. The GM's just knee-jerk recact to any name reported without even looking at the name, even if it IS within the policy its still has to be changed cause someone reported it. (I've seen that happen on my server as well) There needs to be a way for name report to actually be used ONLY for names that actually violate and make it harder for some petty people to use to get back at people. Just my $0.02
