The state of the Horde and the Alliance {WoW}

Apr 26th 2009 3:08PM It's Corprethar or Mordrethar actually, Death or Horror gates... or something. Not Angrathar, Wrath Gate.

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Rogue {WoW}

Jan 26th 2009 11:52AM I have 2 rogues, I enjoy the class, now my warlock is satisfactory and I have less on my plate IRL wise, I shall be leveling them up.

One is a human, she started out as an innocent naieve ne'er-do-well a few years ago, who was a rogue because she "wasn't good at anything else", but is now a quiet, outwardly cynical and often quite nasty thief, spy or assassin (depending on what she needs to be) but who secretly possesses a heart of gold and really really wants to be idealistic and nice. This rogue tends to be specced either Subtlety or Assassination, only very occasionally combat and only if im forced to for raids.

The other is a gnome, not the bouncy bouncy happy cutesy kind of gnome but the quietly eccentric "what happens if I do that" or "I wonder if I can go there" kind of gnome. This one is probably more of a swashbuckler (Gnome Swashbucklers, what is there not to like) and is full of endless enthusiasm and idealism. This gnome also, since the release of fallout 3 endless talks about "the good fight" and is probably best summed up as "chaotic good". This rogue tends to be specced Combat or Assassination, depending on weapons availiability, although is probably closer to combat IC.

Personally I explain stealth in one of two ways, either, on the gnome, I'm small, easy to overlook and do actually attempt to use various forms of cover to hide myself (shrubs ftw!), the human lass however, being failure of a mage explains stealth via minor illusionary spells and "mysticism". Indeed the rogue class description at character creation says that rogues "rely on a blend of stealth and minor mysticism".

Breakfast topic: When real life is greater than WoW {WoW}

Jan 20th 2009 8:40AM Why do so many americans singularly fail to understand non-american-capitalist economic systems?
Why do so many americans not realise how much their douchbaggery makes the rest of the world hate them? And are then suprised when people tell them so?
Why do so many americans ruin it for the rest of the americans?
Why are americans so racist?
Why are do americans so often fail to understand irony?
Why do americans call chips fries?
Why do americans consistently miss-spell "honour", "colour" etc?
How can americans drink that watery pig-piss they export as "beer"?

Waging the war against "lorelol" {WoW}

Jan 18th 2009 4:32PM If you think Warcraft fans are bad you ain't seen nuthin'. Elder Scrolls fans all think the game's after their particular entry into the franchise is all "lorelol" and ruining the franchise.

Darggerfall fans hate Morrowind and Oblivion
Morrowind fans (legitimatly) hate Oblivion
Oblivion fans... barely exist within the fanbase.

A look at World of Warcraft's unique characteristics {Massively}

Nov 19th 2008 7:30AM On a purely landscape based point:

Only 2 other games have ever given me the breathtaking world design factor that Northrend does. Only two games ever.

These are Morrowind and Fallout 3. Both single-player RPGs by Bethesda softworks. For an MMO like WoW to manage that is a serious achievement. Don't get me wrong, it's not always been like that for WoW. Outland made me cringe, and while mainly fairly good the old world was a bit too restricted for my tastes.

Now I admit have not played LoTRO, nor Warhammer Online. As an avid LoTR and Warhammer fan in my early teenage years I find the very idea of MMOs based on the two franchises slightly abhorrent, I can vaguely imagine Tolkien spinning in his grave. But of the MMOs I have played Northrend is easily the most engaging world space.

The Colosseum: Drwhy of Burning Legion {WoW}

Oct 6th 2008 10:47AM Worse, people aren't forced to Roleplay. Alot more people dislike arena alot more than they dislike Roleplay. Roleplay is a target for derision, Arenas are a target for outright hatred.

Ask WoW Insider: Defining mains and alts {WoW}

Aug 19th 2008 5:55AM I have two level 70s, a rogue and a warlock. My rogue is the geared character who I tend to play more often. Pretty much purely because it's geared. If both were equally geared I'd drop the rogue and play the warlock. I'd then carry on leveling my gnome rogue up. (It's more a problem of me not liking the race I've rolled from a cosmetic point of view than anything else). Now, some of you would say the rogue is obviously my main. You're wrong, I don't enjoy the rogue as much as the warlock and given the chance would much rather drop it from PvE entirely bar the odd run for nostagia.

I'm fairly lucky though, the guild I'm in has far too many rogues so I tend to get in on a run as a warlock simply because the rogue spots are taken but it's nice if someone curses Elements. We don't use main/alt things, we essentially use DKP in our 25M raid alliance and it's per character not per player. I don't see the problem of alts getting gear over mains if the alt has more DKP under a per character system. The alt has been to more raids and generally contributed more than the main why should a main who has less DKP have the right to gear over an alt who has contributed more in the past? Especially if the alt's main is of an over-represented class.

Breakfast Topic: What tabard do you wear? {WoW}

Aug 18th 2008 8:41AM Knight's tabard, AD tabard or SSO tabard. Depending on what I feel like.

Breakfast Topic: What glyphs would you like to see for your class? {WoW}

Aug 1st 2008 8:11AM I'd like a glyph that makes vanish work as the tooltip says it does.
