Of monks, mains, and the ability to change {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 7:55AM I don't see a problem with having multiple mains. Or rather, I think the concept of 'a main' is one that lost it's meaning sometime during BC.

During Wrath, I had a healing priest I raided with, My resto/elemental shammy was the one people saw me on most of the time (Questing/instancing/chatting in /G) when I wasn't levelling an alt and a warlock I did pretty much all my PVPing with.
And the toon I'm most attached to? That's my hunter that was the first toon I levelled up during vanilla. She was 40 when BC hit and each expansion she's been the first toon to the new max level.

It is so ludicrously easy to gear up several toons without problems that the concept of a main is rather outdated IMO by now.
If you genuinely only play one toon, fine, you have a main, but what if you have Several toons that you devote time to and which are all well geared and well used?

Weekly Podcast Roundup: March 19-25, 2012 {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 5:26AM I know I'm a bit late to the party, but nvm...

I personally disagree as well. I listen to podcasts on my way to/from work or while I'm doing other things and I suspect I'm not alone in this.
Video casts are cool, certainly, but to be honest, I haven't seen many where I particularly wanted to stare at the presenters face for the duration of a pod cast.

Blizzard committed to keeping a sense of community {WoW}

Mar 21st 2012 7:58AM I would actually like this.

As long as I don't *have to* add people I 'friend' in WoW to my FL on FB, then I'd be happy.
And sending achievements to my twitter stream? Sure, why not...

Drama Mamas: The love triangle strikes again {WoW}

Mar 20th 2012 9:46PM They think either:

A) I can change him (Pro-tip: they can't)
B) It'll be different with me (Pro-tip: that is hugely unlikely)

Blizzard committed to keeping a sense of community {WoW}

Mar 20th 2012 2:00PM "Keeping a sense of community while still meeting the needs of the community as a whole is a huge challenge for us."

It continues to crack me up each time I read that.
Blizzard gutted the server communities when they introduced x-realm LFR & LFD.
While it is immensely cool that I can chat to my mates that are playing other on other realms or other Blizzard games, it doesn't change the fact that A) Server comunities have been killed & B) They have enabled me to chat to the same people I can already chat to via MSN/phone or down the pub.
So they have killed communities while just allowing me to chat to the same people I could already chat to.

Last Week in WoW: Pandas everywhere {WoW}

The WoW Insider Show Episode 237: Mists of Pandaria Q&A {WoW}

Mar 20th 2012 1:39PM Apparently he's there, but I can't remember where I read it. I think it was here though...

Blizzard further explains the new Scroll of Resurrection {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 12:26PM I have a question:

Can a friend create a new toon and then instalevel that toon?

Breakfast Topic: What's your one wish for Mists of Pandaria? {WoW}

Mar 16th 2012 9:02AM This has been happening in LFD for ages as well. Which is one reason why I loathe it and wish I had an option to only be in groups with people from my own server.

Breakfast Topic: What's your WoW grudge? {WoW}

Mar 15th 2012 9:12AM I genuinely miss those little surprises out in the world.

From world bosses to Sons of Arugal to Hogger and to the Alliance Outriders.
I think the world had a better sense of danger when we had those...
