Apr 30th 2008 4:58PM Boom Ill tell you what when I had that quest originally I couldn't get the quest items. I killed and killed and killed and hardly any quest drops. So log out and usually next time I login its drop, drop, drop. Still no quest drops, so after clearing all of zangamarsh and half of nagrand I would go back and kill dozens and it took 4 trips of 50 or more kills to get quest items (I HAVE to finish ALL quests in the zone) And I never even knew this firefly existed. Any droprate info or if it was added to a later patch?
Apr 30th 2008 3:05PM On Mannoroth-US in the Ruin Battlegroup my typical 60-100 ms has become 250-350 ms really doesn't bother me too much, but if it continues that way it could cause some majoer issues. Hopefully if they isolate a latency issue on the bloodlust battlegroup it will help make it easier to fix all battlegroups.
Apr 30th 2008 1:23PM Any info on what we will hear? Are we in Nihilum's voice chat as well, because that would be the ultimate. I want to hear the coordination, preparation, and call outs just as much if not more than the video stream. I could even watch a full screen combat log and listen and probably learn a lot. Any information would be appreciated
Apr 30th 2008 1:17PM Biglou your comments are right on point.
I was a former Everquest2 player and I had a hard time at first with the "cartoon" animation. Everquest went all realism full customization, but talk about some files this thing is massive. WoW is on 2 dvds plus a patch. Everquest is 12dvds and 4-6more for each of the three expansions and numerous patches. Those are the kind of things Blizzard decided to simplify to focus elsewhere. After playing WoW now for a year I really prefer the bright vivid colors of WoW even if it is like comic book colors it helps add to the fantasy world atmosphere and is just prettier to look at. As long as it keeps looking pretty I could care less about my toon. He looks cool as hell and I dig that.
Apr 30th 2008 12:34PM You can still explore, just go places nobody would want to. Example if you go to say Azshara and swim up towards winterspring there is tons and tons of coast and unfinished mountain zones, different barriers of blank textures and such. Also in the wetlands you can do some spelunking and have picnics in unfinished mountain-tops etc. I find that drugs allow you to put in the hours of swimming or climbing it takes to do these things.
Apr 30th 2008 9:26AM Not that the points in this article are not all valid observations of things that are not often spoken about in WoW, but I felt like when I was reading I had a growing sense of "who cares?" and "why am I reading this?" I love the diversity of topics around here, but this one just doesn't seem to interest me.
On a positive note though, Amanda the idea of dynamic facial expressions is great, but then you would have to constantly monitor player emotions for each NPC and Player Character and I am guessing it would be horribly inefficient and cause more lag and bottlenecks than it would produce a quality result you actually cared to see in game.
This is the type of article that needs a BLUE response to see what blizzard's official stance is on character custiomization in the future?
Apr 29th 2008 4:57PM "Or are you going to complain that someone at level 70 got t6 and you only have greens and you cant get into the same raids they can :P"
Well it would appear that you are wrong because not only is he going to do so, but you forgot to add that he will get 40 of his lazy friends (who probably have had everyhting handed to them in RL) to flame about it with him so blizz will hand them epics ahem ahem (Arena Gear for Honor) so they can kill something.
Apr 29th 2008 3:56PM I post here a lot and this article and the 15 minutes of fame section in general has evaded me until now.
I have been very frustrated with WoW lately and have been debating letting my accounts go unpaid because of general WoW headaches. Hearing about others and the things they enjoy about WoW makes me remember some of the things I haven't stopped to enjoy lately.
The OP was a very uplifting story for me thank you for sharing. All this NE talk makes me wanna roll a druid, and when she mentioned badge gear I totally realized there are still servers that don't have it yet and I have 5 pieces. Then I also realized I need to cut back on PT and really enjoy the time I do play.
Apr 29th 2008 3:22PM Bruce as true as that statement is I wish you would have written it at the bottom instead of replying because you ruined my ^^^ LoL ; )
