Ask a Beta Tester: Lordaeron, epic quests, and other things {WoW}

Nov 2nd 2008 2:11PM I noticed the same thing, but LW specialization is sort of outdated anyway and was all but abandoned in TBC. Feral Druids now use the same stuff as rogues so that consolidates all of that. Mail would be for hunters and shamen so it should be rather obvious who would get what in those crafted items. I think Blizzard has it mostly right with crafting BOP items in LW. There really isn't any reason to arbitrarily limit who can craft these specific things other than to justify the existence of LW specialization.

As for being left out in the cold... well it sort of looks that way for the moment. Keep in mind of course that only the first stage of WotLK has been implemented, so as they release more content I'd expect we'll see more powerful leather working only items. Sort of annoying that Engineers can make Harleys, tailors can fly on carpets, and all leather workers can do is make fuzzy bracer linings. But if you've stayed with leather working this long you should find this is all par for the course in this profession :/

A plea on behalf of frustrated tanks everywhere {WoW}

Oct 31st 2008 7:53PM meh, I think you're preaching to the choir anyway. Anyone who doesn't have enough common sense and restraint not to punt mobs around and away from the tank isn't going to listen anyway.

Mark my words, it'll be a few months into the expansion and people will be complaining that no one wants to be a tank despite the fact that death knights can tank. They'll say all the death knights are spec'd dps, despite the reality is that those that can tank well only do so within a circle of players they trust - basically like it is now.

Yeah, wonder why it's so hard to find a tank...

Gold limit increased for character transfers {WoW}

Oct 31st 2008 5:07PM "I'm not certain why there's a Gold limit to begin with"

Actually if you look at the last WoWinsider article you linked, someone pointed out that this correlates with a 32bit integer.

I believe that meta-gem requirements only require you "have a gem equipped" so these would still count towards meta-gem requirements.

15 Minutes of Fame: Badger Badger Badger {WoW}

Oct 31st 2008 1:13PM I actually ran into a very similar problem. I rolled a female aliance paladin. I figured for such a melee role, she would have had an overwealming influence from her father, so in her story I sort of wrote her mother out of the picture at an early age. As it also happened however I had an undead priest girl that I couldn't come up with any back story. *lightbulb overhead* --> priest is paladin's mother who died and came back joining the forsaken.

Cheese? yes. However it allowed me to embellish both characters at the same time. However being on the same account, and different factions, and now even different realms, meeting is pretty much not going to happen. But at some point they're going to pull the plug on this whole world of warcraft thing, so I think I'll leave the final chapter and theoretical meeting until then. It's also a bit more interesting if they could have met each other many times but not known each other.

And also they could sort of interact through a third party (imaginary, or some actual NPC). Probably the paladin's father / priest's husband in my case. Good luck in figuring that all out. :)

A Simple Re-Quest bugged {WoW}

Oct 31st 2008 12:24PM I'm not sure if or when it's scheduled for updating, but I know that for a while (pre 3.x) the armory would update on logout, and be viewable immediately. I'm guessing with server crashes / forced logouts that they decided the pressure on the data centers was bad enough to suspend armory updates for many realms.

Ask a Beta Tester: Heirloom items, class trainers, and more {WoW}

Oct 30th 2008 2:15PM Not surprising though. If you read through many classic items in the game on thottbot, it usually starts out as "best item ever", then farther down the page you read "nerfed and now useless". Blizzard probably got tired of trying to work around the matrix of possible uses many of these unique abilities give people in favor of regular stats (which is at least predictable).

The plural of "necropolis" {WoW}

Oct 30th 2008 9:40AM Think I'll stick to my usage of {object description} + thingy or thinger.


"Anyone one of those evil dead floating city thingers?"

A very crabby Hallow's End {WoW}
