Scattered Shots: The line of sight between hunters and the Arenas {WoW}

Mar 7th 2008 6:55AM My thoughts:
- Perhaps some sort of Ricochet shot that could hit targets out of line of sight, with a decent cooldown, but good damage.
- Make Stings more effective in PvP, especially Scorpid and Viper.
- Give pet trainers some abilities that level 70 pets could learn that would be more useful in PvP situations instead of just PvE.
- Maybe give pets a short duration fear to scare players out into the open, or some sort of grapple to pull them out.

That's all I can think of for now, but they could be doable. I'm torn though, on one hand I hate fighting hunters on my warrior main, but I like to pvp on my hunter alt. =P

Breakfast Topic: Potential playable races {WoW}

Mar 5th 2008 9:07AM Actually, if Naga or Worgen were a playable race, they'd make more sense on the Horde side, but I'd still keep them based in Gilneas.

Not really sure where Pandaria is on the map, but I'd stick it somewhere around the western continent to even out the number of races per faction per continent.

Breakfast Topic: Potential playable races {WoW}

Mar 5th 2008 9:00AM For the Horde, Goblins seem to be the obvious choice, and it would open up the island of Kezan and Undermine as their racial home, though I'd really love to see it as a neutral city.

For the Alliance, it's a bit harder. Ethereals are cool, but they seem just about as neutral and opportunistic as the goblins are currently. Perhaps Worgen or Naga making their home in Gilneas, but I don't see that happening either.

I could easily see Furbolgs working out quite nicely. Panderans would be an acceptable alternative to Furbolgs, if they could be intergrated into the game smoothly. Either way, they would have a bit of lore already established and would be a race that would draw attention equal to the Goblins, so as to maintain balance between the sides

PvP for the beginning HK: 11 rules for the starter weasel {WoW}

Mar 4th 2008 5:57PM My ass! I laughed it off!

Pure, weapons grade, win. =D

Village Voice talks with WoW adult film producer Dez {WoW}

Mar 4th 2008 8:09AM Not here to join in the flame war or anything. I love WoW, I love WoW Insider (I read it almost daily), and I'm also a fan of well made porn. I've seen World of Whorecraft before, maybe about a year or so ago when it there were only a few episodes out. Frankly I was impressed. They have gorgeous girls, amazing sets/locations, and the attention to costume detail that is nothing short of amazing compared to the rest of the industry. Erotic or not, it looks good, and there's a bit of a story there. I found myself chuckling as bits of geek humor jumped out at me. I guess it's not all that surprising that WoW porn would be made with real people considering some of the machinima that can be found out there. Face it people, sex and video games go together like cake and ice cream, and Dez is just capitalizing on it and having some fun with the genre (and doing a great job too).

As for my two cents, if you don't want your kids getting at stuff like that, it's all on you, don't censor the net or the awesome folks at WoW Insider because you're not feeling up to the job.

Breakfast Topic: When do you start working up a profession? {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2008 3:07PM I usually take up a profession early on just because it might be useful, at least to start. I also try to cover all professions on my toons on any given server, I'm just a nut like that.

From levels 5-70 I had Blacksmithing on my Warrior, sometimes the gear was an upgrade, especially the weapons. It was a real pain to grind to 300 back when that was the cap, and I still have yet to get it all the way up to 375, partially because it's not as useful to me anymore

Recently I ditched Mining in favor of Engineering, I stocked up the mats and ground it to 350 in a few hours. After the Scope plans dropped off Attumen, I got it up to 375 asap. In retrospect I probably should have waited till I had another toon that could Mine in Outlands.

My rogue went Skinning and Leather Working and was pretty happy with it. The rest of my toons I try to twink their professions out, I do the farming with my higher ups and feed them the mats to max out their professions every time they hit a cap. It's a formula I've carried on to other servers, farm with one or two toons, and send the mats where they're needed.

For the secondary professions, all of my toons get First Aid, I try to keep cooking to only one or two toons, they can cook whatever my other toons might need. Fishing is one I tend to enjoy, I level that up on any toon that I actually plan to get to 70.

Whatever you do, make sure it'll be beneficial to you, and remember you can always grind up your skill in a fairly short time once you're at the top, and can make use of some of the cool BoP items that various professions get.

Around Azeroth: Under Stormwind {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2008 2:10PM I still like under Ironforge the best, now if only they'd open the place up...

Insert cute pet story here {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2008 4:40AM My dog Summer likes to bark at me to try and get my attention while I play. Sometimes she'll go down by my feet and sniff around the cords or lick my feet. However, when she really wants to get my attention, she stands on her hind paws and punches me in the arm with her front paws, often moving the mouse right when I'm trying to click something.

She also tends to need to go for walks right before the a raid is about to get going. Some of my guildmates have dogs, so I think they're a bit more understanding. I'm working on training her to just sit at my feet while I'm in intense sessions, but she's still basically a puppy so it'll take time for her to get used to not being the center of attention all of the time.

Farewell, my friend {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2008 4:07AM Really sorry to hear about your friend. I totally understand how important some of those connections are. I might not be as close with my guild mates as I could be, but they're awesome people, and they're always there, which is especially nice since I don't get to get out and about much lately.

I hope he's having fun playing the next level.

A few more changes from 2/29 {WoW}

Mar 1st 2008 4:42PM I would imagine that the addition of a Black War Elekk means that there will be a Black War Strider for the Horde side. Can anyone confirm?
