Dec 5th 2008 7:39PM By far one of the best pre-80 caster staffs is the Slobberknocker. It's an awesome staff from the Amphitheater of Anguish quest chain, at the very end. Any group of 5 should be able to handle it no problem, and it's a short chain if you get the group together.
In my opinion, that is much easier than a random drop off an optional boss in one of the more lackluster instances in Wrath.
Nov 21st 2008 5:41AM Now maybe we can convince our local guild warlock to stop being lazy and showing up with only 5 shards.
Nov 21st 2008 5:39AM We all need to face a simple fact:
Wanton Destruction is FUN. The first time I played a DK in the beta I had the time of my life. Slaughtering the innocents wasn't the highlight simply because they take too long to kill. If most don't fight back, I should have been 1-shotting them, not wasting time whacking them.
When I played City of Heroes, they announced City of Villains. As soon as I tried it, I stopped playing my hero. The villainy was just too much fun.
People need to just take this for what it is. I'd enjoy the torture quest, because the guy probably has some funny lines, and I get XP that doesn't require me to farm 15 of something.
Though some people reading this will think I'm pretty screwed up in the head, I think that people who are making a fuss and going "omg it's sooooo cruel, having to saw people's brains out" need are a bit screwed up. You're not having fun doing something because you morally object to it in real life? Not only do quests like these fit lore-wise, but they add spice that isn't "Kill X of Y and bring back so many of this rare item with a low drop rate", and are supposed to be fun. So I wouldn't go sawing people's brains out in real life, doesn't mean I can't enjoy my character doing it.
As much as I've always wanted an elf mage, and in fact, only rolled a human mage because it was the closest thing to an elf that could be a mage at the time I started playing, seeing the recent return of the Forsaken to importance in lore and reading about some quests various Horde players have posted here, I'm getting tempted to roll an undead instead. I enjoy these quests, and think that if you are incapable of enjoying some harmless destruction in a game, then you probably should look elsewhere for entertainment.
Nov 11th 2008 9:26PM I will be given the opportunity to link my Bnet and WoW accounts, right? It won't just be converted, leaving me with two?
Nov 8th 2008 1:37PM Would look great on my Death Knight :D
Nov 3rd 2008 10:14PM I still expect a youtube video of you eating your hat...
Nov 3rd 2008 6:12PM Heading straight for Howling Fjord. The XP in Outlands is not worth it, Borean Tundra has not only become known as the least great zone in Northrend, but I've done most of the starter quests, which basically means leveling halfway through 70-71 will be quests I already know. That won't keep me going for long.
Nov 2nd 2008 9:26PM I'd like to point out that the totally awesome "Last Rites" quest line does NOT begin until after you've finished most of the quests around Valiance Keep.
Oct 31st 2008 6:20PM My guild, and many groups, have yet to say they have a problem with it. Blast Wave is not part of a high DPS rotation with the exclusion of AoE situations, where it adds some more DPS, stuns them, and gets them some distance away from me.
What this boils down to is, nobody on my server has said they have a problem with it. I like using it. I will not use it in risky situations where I may end up pulling more.
Calm down, and let people enjoy their new toys.
PS: I knocked someone off the bridge in AV. It was awesome.
Oct 30th 2008 6:52PM Lorewise? Dalaran despises Warlocks same way most Mages do today. Guess it works out, eh?
But they let Horde in, even though Dalaran is a Human city. Bleh, what can you do about it?
Oh right, nuke the hell out of everything!
