WoW, Casually: What is casual? {WoW}

Jun 9th 2009 11:40AM In my view a casual can spend as much or as little time playing WoW as they want, and that's the key to casual, they choose how much time they spend.

You stop being a casual (and become hardcore) when you join a guild that requires to attend a minimum amount of raids, and that would eventually be gkick or demoted from raider status if you fail to meet that minimum.

Computerworld on Blizzard's Warden at work {WoW}

Mar 9th 2009 8:05PM I'm fed up with online games where players hack themselves speed cheats, unlimited health or any other game breaking exploit.

Although warden might be able to look at stuff you don't want it to, is anyone at blizzard going to sort through 11m accounts worth of warden info looking for sensitive info? I doubt it.

Basically it keeps the game mostly fair and a level playing field and one of the reasons WoW is so good is that player you lost to in PvP beat you because his skills at WoW were better rather than his skills at hacking the program.

I know there are some exceptions and we all see the farm bots, but i've seen a lot less recently. From the evidence i've seen using Bot programs and the like you will get caught one day, it's just a question of how long before you do.

Tweaks to enchanting in 3.0.8 {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2008 6:19PM I don't think dust is a problem as such (although i am desperate for it as well), the problem is that enchanting and tailoring go together really well as proffs.

Tailoring has been taking all my dust and that leaves my enchanter side with too many essences and shards. Once my tailor is maxed out the balance will correct as i can actually spend the dust i get on enchants rather than imbude frostweave.

WoW Rookie: Soulstone and you {WoW}

Dec 16th 2006 10:32AM I never SS the Pally for the 'die safe' reason. Priests tend to hang about at the back of the party which also tends to be away from where the mobs will re-set to. Pallys tend to get in and hack and slash, meaning that if they die they do not normally die in a safe place.

So to poster 10. My recommendation is do put it on the priest, only put on a pally if nothing else.

The Background Downloader in Action {WoW}

Jun 21st 2006 8:29AM Same here, stuck at 127mbs (84%) getting a 'the tracker is not responding' message. To make it even worse the WoW europe web page is down (or being overloaded by others with same problem).
