Nov 10th 2008 11:38AM I want a druid for a mount personally. A bear when on land, a giant bird in the air, and even a sea lion when in water! And it can even HoT you in combat- worth way more than just a vendor.
Nov 6th 2008 7:00PM Trying to finish Leading the Cavalry before Wrath. 3 mounts to go and grinding WSG and AB all day for the PvP mounts is killing me. I've also soloed Strat a dozen times (as a Combat Rogue) but still no Deathcharger.
Apr 19th 2008 2:34PM It really depends on several factors.
Normally I buy gems and then have them cut to save money, but if I just got a new piece of gear and the raid is in 10 mins, I'll buy into the price gouge.
When I did LWing, I normally only used the leather I had skinned- except when a big milestone was coming up, like a new piece of gear I could use, a major skill-up recipe from the trainer, or a skill-level boundary (eg 50, 125, etc), at which point I'd blow all my gold on the leather from the AH.
Apr 14th 2008 12:37PM Murlocs. Oh god. I did the Murloc quests in Darkshore and Bloodmyst the first time through; never again.
Murlocs are the absolute worst mob to fight ever. I am 100% ready to NOT do the Isle daily that involves them, just seeing those packs of Murloc along Greengill while I kill Darkspine makes me cringe.
On the other side, I stayed on the plains of Nagrand long after Nesingwary's bloodlust was satiated; Talbuk and Clefthoof go down easy and give lots of leather.
Apr 12th 2008 5:03PM My server just got to Phase 3, so be another week or two before we get the badge, but I've already sheeted out the order in terms of DPS / badge. And I apparently have to respec Fists for the Vanir's.
Hoping Gruul drops me some T4 legs this week so that I'm not stuck with Fel Leather for another month.
Apr 1st 2008 8:34PM On my oh-so-young server, only 3 guilds are even able to kill Kazzak, and one of them greatly outgears his fight so is not that interested anymore. Thus he's up all the time just because there's no one to kill him.
I want that Nightmare Vine so much T_T!
Mar 31st 2008 4:17PM I think you missed part of the article. He's not saying people should be able to wear whatever they want from the outset and then only get gear for stats.
He's saying to have a separate set of armor slots on your character sheet for cosmetic use; you'd still have to grind the rep/instance/gold/profession/etc to get the fancy-looking armor in order to wear it, you just wouldn't need the extra bag space+outfit switching addon in order to display it wherever you go.
Mar 15th 2008 5:26PM I think to some extent your server progression has a big effect on you even if you aren't at the high end of it.
For instance, I know exactly who first killed Illidan on my server because no one has; in fact we only have one guild that's at Hyjal and less than a dozen in SSC.
This has a large effect on the economy (epic gems are almost non-existent, for instance) and quality of players available outside of raiding, for both Heroics and Arena; just clearing Kara is a major deal for a guild on my server, whereas on others I've heard pugging Kara is not uncommon.
It's thus very likely that if that one guild (since obviously no one else will be able to for a long time) wanted to go through Sunwell 25 they simply would not be able to with the requirement Blizzard had in mind, since they'd have to do all of the unlocking themselves.
I think a lot of people are underestimating how different server progression can be if they think it's not relevant.
