Jan 24th 2008 5:23PM I picked up warcraft again just before the exp curve boost and was very happy (and more hooked) because of it.
About the money issue, I made a bank alt and started playing the AH (having decided that though gathering skills on alts is good money, it's a time-waster, and I just wanted to level fast).
Anyways, I now have a 45 mage, 40 lock and 20 hunter and had to wait maybe 1-2 days for my money to come in from the AH to pay for my mage's mount, and in the last week and a half I'm up 130g again (my lock had the free mount ofc). Btw this is on a new server, not where my main and 2 alts were on, so no money boosting.
If you know how to play the AH, you can make good money (also a nice lvl 29 decent twink caster staff netted me a nice 65g iirc).

Jan 24th 2008 4:49PM Indeed, they scaled evocation (that was suffering like frenz regen but for mana), they should do something for ferals
Jan 24th 2008 4:48PM - In the bug fixes there appears the phrase "players that use mods". This is inconsistent--Blizzard has always referred to those as "addons".
I normally go with most fakes either for my personal enjoyment but this really bugged me, and completely dismissed them as fake (and unenjoyable- fortunately it was one of the last lines :D).
Jan 24th 2008 4:45PM - The alleged new warlock talent to improve death coil is stated to be in the Destruction tree, but death coil is an affliction spell.
But Intercept is now in Arms tree but it's a Fury skill.
Jan 24th 2008 4:42PM - Empowered Frostbolt has been renamed to Empowered Frost and no longer increase the critical strike chance of Frostbolt, but now also increases the amount of bonus spell damage that effects your Icelance spell by 1/2/3/4/5%
= So this is actually "Empowered Frost Lance" then and really doesn't benefit the main spell of a frost mage, beautiful
Well it would still increase the effect spell damage has on frostbolt, so it would be well named with "Empowered Frost"
Jan 21st 2008 8:36PM Btw you can easily jump to stand next to the auctioneers in Silvermoon, I always just up to them before I check the AH :) I also remember a friend trying to show me how to be on top of the collision screen of the auctioneers in IF (using the un-stuck feature, can't remember).
Anyways, this was a problem a while back in the PTRs when you could copy full GM/HW characters, and it was basically everyone rerolling (i was no better :P), and the battlemasters in Org were untargetable without the nameplates
Jan 18th 2008 1:37PM Ye, missed a whole lot of 9.15 classes (first ones of the day) at uni because of missed sleep for 'just on more' attempts.
I remember one ZG raid at like 2 am one of the mages fell asleep on his keyboard and was apparently snoring on vent, they had to kick him (from vent) after a while cause it was so annoying.
Unfortunately I have the kind of personality that if we start an instance I'm gonna make damn certain we finish- which resulted in 5 hour 5-man instances, my quitting, rerolling for casual leveling.
