Apr 23rd 2011 8:27AM My son has played since he was 7. Started off running around just having fun, following the kids in Stormwind picking up the lore and getting a warning for exploitation of a game mechanic - getting inside a fire place in Goldshire.
His attention, as a 13 yo, is now often elsewhere, but he raided in ICC and has just joined a roleplaying guild.
Sep 18th 2010 1:37PM @ Ashamel Night Elves seem to generally stay back and play the defensive game when it comes to land expansion... they'll protect their forests and resources but you don't find them out there like the dwarves or humans trying to continually spread their boundaries.
Except for the 4 quests that Blood Elves have to fight various forms of Darnassian incursions into their land.
Sep 16th 2010 4:04AM I wonder how many of your competitors still have stacks of herbs they bought from the bots before the waves of bans? As they were virtually given away you won't be able to compete.
Dec 29th 2009 3:46AM One I'd add:
the rest of the party talks in a language other than English all the time even when addressing you.
I don't care what language people use to chat to each other, but if addressing someone they don't know, speaking English would be a good starting point.
Dec 15th 2009 4:35AM I can't belive that I'm posting this, but why did they nerf LM?
Our guild is not the best geared, having not cleared Ulduar and only cleared ToC10, but we did clear ICC. LM is hard, probaly the hardest boss (pre nerf) of the first 4, but is doable.
Dec 12th 2009 1:11PM Our guild cleared ICC 10 this week. We did it over 3 nights because of lack of personnel but we did it.
You don't need to be uber geared, just work as a team. I healed with average item lvl 224, helped by 9 others who paid attention.
Give it a go, the sense of satisfaction when you complete is great.
On the new five mans, there are, in my opinion, a test to see if the dps can break themselves out of the need to top the meters and do the job they need to.
Jul 2nd 2009 4:11AM If you can't understand the appeal then talk to some one who is on a different realm and fcation and wants to be in a guild with friends. Yes, they have rerolled and are heading to 80, but would gladly pay to move their lvl 80 lock and save the time and effort.
Aug 26th 2008 5:23AM I'm a parent playing the game as does my son. The profanity he hears is no worse than the stuff he hears at school but it doesn't mean its not offensive.
The other problem as others have pointed out is that the trade channel has become useless as its so full of general chat never mind whether its offensive or not.
One of thing I'd like to see when everyone signs on is 'Today's Heroic is....'

Aug 5th 2008 10:24AM Is Improved Aspect of the Hawk worth it in a levelling spec? In a long fight, yes I can clearly see it is, but the average mob takes less than 10 shots to die so I remain to be convinced why i should bother with it.
