Dec 7th 2011 5:58PM Nope, it's an MMO set in the time period a few hundred years after KOTOR. Ya know, kinda like how WOW is an MMO set in the time period after Warcraft.
Dec 7th 2011 5:56PM Actually Kaphik is only partially correct. It's over 900,000 PHYSICAL pre-orders in the US. That doesn't include the world wide digital version or physical box sales in other parts of the world.
Nov 27th 2008 1:29PM I myself like using blastwave to knock someone off their mount, and slow fall down while I watch them fall to their death. Gain honor and cause a durability hit. Evil I know.
Nov 24th 2008 9:59AM Just have someone AOE them down. The only thing I have wanted to pull my hair out about Strat is how long the time is between bosses. We have done the timed event a few times. One time we messed up thinking the boss was after Mal'ganis not before, and another time every spawn was at the opposite corner of the zone and Arthas took his sweet time meeting us. Even with that we still engaged the boss with less then a min. left, got him down to 50% and then he just walked through the portal. Oh well, we have 2 drakes and we will have more.
Nov 24th 2008 9:48AM No way! I thought leveling was very fast, maybe even too fast. I remember hearing something back in TBC that leveling from 60-70 would take as long as leveling 1-60. This is before the leveling gains that Bliz put in over the last 6 months or so. So when 70-80 was done in a fairly short time, I was surprised. The first few levels can be a bit of a bear, but the later ones, especially 77+ when you have flying again zoom by.

It is a WORLD event, which means it happens all over the world. It was meant to disrupt things and be part of the story and should also be considered part of the game as a whole. Therefore, the choice is there, if you don't want to be part of this event/game, then don't play for a couple of days. You have the choice and are not "forced" to do anything. Don't take things so seriously. The zombies lasted for a couple of days, and at worst things like this will last for a few weeks. It is just a game.
Jun 7th 2008 2:14AM Yeah I know, but it would still be nice if I didn't have to have all of these mounts. now if the one that can carry passengers will also be a flying mount, then I will be happy so that I only need 1 mount instead of 2 that sit in my bags.
Mar 23rd 2008 12:02AM While it would be great to fly in the old world, I just wish I could use my flying mount as a ground mount there. Having 2 mounts, taking up bag space, mounting up in different ways for different areas....Just my wish but I doubt we will ever see it.
Mar 21st 2008 12:51PM No offense but you probably just don't know how to make gold. You can do a few quick daily quests each day and make about 100g in about 1/2 an hour or so. If you have any gathering professions at all use them and use the AH. Seriously without doing daily quests I could easily make a couple hundred gold in a few hours if I put any effort into it at all. If you have ANY quests, especially solo...DO THEM!!!! I made over 2k gold in less then a week just finishing up quests in netherstorm and SMV.
Mar 21st 2008 9:08AM I don't understand how people don't make gold? I have two 70's both with epic flyers and I have about 7k gold on top of that. I use to work hard on making gold but not so much anymore, hell I at most only do 1 daily quest. If I spend a few hours farming for some gold I can do anywhere between 50-200g an hour.
First off, when you hit 70, don't stop doing quests! I think the a week after I hit 70 I had made about 2500g on top of what I already had just from finishing off quests. Second, if you want to make gold, have the right professions to do it, mining, herbalism, and skinning while leveling. Third, use auctioneer to put things on the AH. It makes putting things up on the AH almost a no brainer. Fourth (and this may sound counterproductive to getting gold) buy an epic mount. Yes, you have to spend 5k, but it lets you make gold so much faster! If you mine or herb you can go from node to node faster, which means you get more herbs/mines which means you make more on the AH.
Some other good things, learn farming spots such as BEs in Netherstorm. Farm motes/primals. Do daily quests, but learn the ones that are quick and easy.
For those of you putting around on your donkey (non-epic) flying mounts, thinking that the epic isn't worth it, you are very wrong! The epic flyers is the best gold I have spent in wow and I don't regret it for one second.
