Two Bosses Enter: Prince Keleseth vs. Grand Magus Telestra {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 9:42PM But if they must fight, then she'd poly his skeletons into cute fluffy kittens and her clones would let her out of ice tombs and she would be a clear winner. I don't think she'd even need to gravity well to completely trounce him.
I think he'd enjoy it.

Two Bosses Enter: Prince Keleseth vs. Grand Magus Telestra {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 9:35PM I don't think they should fight. I think they should get married and have evil, evil babies.

Breakfast Topic: When did WoW click for you? {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 8:22PM On my first day, I rolled a nelf druid and my first reaction was that I HATED it. Thought it was too colourful and cartoony. Instantly deleted the druid and started a human paladin, found Elwynn Forest a bit less offensive to the eye but still wasn't quite sold (it took me a long, long time before I learned to love pallies, and I've never been able to play a human longer than about lvl 20).

Third try I rolled a dwarf hunter and that was the one that got me hooked. Not sure if it was that Dun Morogh landscape that appealed to me, or the toon itself (picked one that looked as much like the real me as possible). I think also the fact that I had something definite to aim for at level 10 helped a lot. Getting a snow leopard pet appealed to me far more than being able to go bear-shaped.

Those first 10 levels dragged on and on. I had little understanding of game mechanics and the iceclaw bears bashed me around horribly, but the moment when I finally dinged 10 was probably my "clicking" point. It was a trogg at Helms Bed lake and every time I pass that trogg I remember that moment.

Also I never did get over my hatred of technicolour Teldrassil.

The Queue: The Scantily Clad Edition {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 5:00PM I think troll boots are not so much socks as legwarmers.
It makes me ponder what an all-troll 80s jazzercise video might look like.

The Queue: Close the floodgates again, please {WoW}

Mar 25th 2009 4:04PM My answer to the scanty armour thing is to play female dwarves and tauren. Little boys want to look at scantily clad women? Well then, I'll give them a bit more to look at.

Shame though there's not much to tantalise players who would prefer to look at scantily clad blokes. Although for a time my belf lad was running around in the Bloodspattered Loincloth. which covers very little on any character model, male or female, and currently my male draenei death knight is wearing Inkling's Leggings, which leave few of his ample charms to the imagination.

Breakfast Topic: Most frustrating moment {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 4:36PM That damn beetle has caused me more upset and frustration than any boss in WOW, ever. I don't know why he's so much more difficult for me than any of the other wrath bosses, but he is.

Although Moroes also caused many frustrating moments, back in the day.

Blizzard theme park? Make it so. {WoW}

Feb 25th 2009 10:23PM One of the biggest attractions will be the Complaints Department, with its very popular QQ Queue that take you through "I Hate Dalaran" World, "It's Too Easy" Land, "I Hate Vehicles" Territory, and of course the magical kingdom of "I Got Nerfed"

(Meanwhile I personally will be off riding a succession of increasingly improbable vehicles and going Wheeee!)

Breakfast Topic: When to call it {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2009 2:54PM My raid leader is perfect. He tends to set the "call it now" threshold just past where I would have given up, but not so far past it that I start to hate the encounter.

Usually the stop point is largely defined by our scheduled end raid time but on some boss fights that give us a problem (we still get that occasionally, especially as the new 80s are coming through now) the call is made if we have a fight that we've wiped on 5 or 6 times and each time has been much the same. Or there is some specific limiting factor, eg. a DPS who has been spending the night with 10fps.

The point where I'd personally give it up would be those horrible nights where you've got DPS who are doing about as much damage as the tank and every fight goes on. And on. And on. Till I'm OOM. I have a pretty high tolerance for mistakes, whether they are the kind made by veteran players getting sloppy or the kind made by new players learning the fight. But I would rather all night wipe on Thaddius and make *that* run back at regular intervals than endure a "death by OOM" run for too long.

Has the Ice Stone melted dot com update {WoW}

Feb 16th 2009 7:56PM Except, it probably won't.

Instead, there will be a plague of unexplained Peddlefeet suddenly appear to offer the long lost bags of candy.

Using city gift collections for extra Love is in the Air supplies {WoW}

Feb 15th 2009 2:13PM Yes that's one of the most irritating aspects...some of those items are tradeable face to face, but can't be mailed as they are conjured items.

Also there's little consistency in what can be traded and what can't.

This event would be much more enjoyable if they had it that all items, except maybe the special permanent drops such as truesilver shafted arrow, could be traded or mailed to alts or friends. It would also be more in the whole "love and friendship" spirit, if you're that way inclined, or the Make Loads of Money spirit if that's what you like better.

As with every other holiday since the achievement system came in, my alts are up to their eyeballs in picnic baskets and little black dresses and one even has a Peddlefoot, but my main, which is the only one I want the achievement for, has been unlucky.

However the ice stone made it all worth it.
