Tips for taking down Coren Direbrew {WoW}

Tips for taking down Coren Direbrew {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2008 9:08AM Actually I did this with a warrior tank, and he held all 6 mobs on him throughout the fight fine, thank you very much.

Warriors have an easier time at single target tanking (I'm not talking about threat generation but the mitigation factor), while pallies are ahead in AOE tanking, that's how the niche thing goes.

Coren Direbrew now drops cross-faction Brewfest mounts, teleportation device {WoW}

Sep 20th 2008 2:11PM "And yea, I do have that mentality that I can be entitled to everything in the game if I put my money down for it like everyone else. "

Wrong. You pay money to PLAY the game, not to have a win handed to you on a silver platter.

It's like you saying you paid for the hire of the tennis court and equipment so therefore you should win the game. Anyone will tell you that is obviously ridiculous. You pay to be able to compete, but you're still going to have to do some work to defeat your opponent before you can be awarded game, set and match.

But the end reward is nothing to brag about and not worth the effort, you say? Only 10 year old nerdy losers want such status symbols, you say? Then you will surely have nothing to QQ about then, since it's something your superiorness doesn't want anyway, No? I'm sure you are not a being a hypocrite here. No siree. Not at all.

It's an effing computer game! So what if you don't get some odd little limited addition status thing because you can't afford the time? It's no big deal. Get over it.

You only become an "antisocial a-hole" if you let your own avarice for pretty pixels in Wow override your life and priorities. Sit back, relax and enjoy the game. If you're not enjoying it, stop playing and spend some time away from WoW.

Go take up some new hobby. Like you said "Go get some sun and some perspective". It's very good advice, you should take it yourself.


Know Your Lore: Stalvan Mistmantle {WoW}

Sep 20th 2008 12:10AM I remember doing this quest for the first time, the appearance of the spirit every time I found a new quest item made my jump out of my skin. You sure don't expect to be attacked my a banshee in the middle of stormwind!

Jul 8th 2008 8:57AM Ah yes, but the thing is it wasn't a player that attacked me, it was an infernal a warlock had enslaved and then released from enslavement. Infernal was hostile, technically a mob and attacking players from both factions. An odd loophole.

In cases like that sadly, the Ctrl+V thing doesn't help, though it does come in useful when it's a giant netherdrake on the PVP NPC though

Breakfast Topic: Most evil quest in the game {WoW}

Jul 8th 2008 8:52AM Oh... and anything to do with the Nesingwary "Slaughter for Sport" quest chains... that too.

Jul 8th 2008 8:50AM Westfall stew. I mean... killing murloc just for eyes to make stew? >.>

Well there's the one where you poison the Aldor soup too...

Tanking for beginners {WoW}

May 28th 2008 8:36PM what you seem to be describing is low level tanking. Frankly a grandmother with a broom could tank at that stage. But try applying that kind ofvsimplistic approach to progression raid tanking. You'll end up a very pretty smear on the dungeon floor.

"It's only a game" {WoW}

May 27th 2008 10:23AM Two of my worst experiences with griefers both involve warlocks. The first was when I was new to Outland and still learning the places of the the different areas and dungeons. I had never even been to areas like Netherstorm or Nagrand. Late one night while in a battleground I get an invite to a dungeon I wanted to run, saying they are in a hurry and need someone of my class to run dungeon X, they are ready to summon and would I like to come? Of course I say yes, and notice a second too late when the summon arrives that the location says Circle of Blood. The loading screen barely disappears before I get flagged for free for all combat, booted out of the group and my poor level 60+ in greens gets ganked but not one, but THREE epicced out level 70s of my own faction. Add the fact you apparently can't run back to your corpse and rez in that Arena.... it really ruined my night.

The 2nd incident involved the Quel Danas badge vendor. When the vendor finally opened, the place was mobbed. For some funny reason Blizzard didn't think to pop the badge vendor somewhere like they did with the SSO quartermaster, so the griefers were happily parking their giant mounts on top of it while flagged and the ridiculous SSO "peacekeepers" were doing a magnificent job killing the poor sods who accidentally right clicked on them. The worst of all was a warlock who had enslaved an infernal and not only was he not content with parking it on the vendor, he released the minion after a while so it could run around attacking players. The greatest injustice of all was when you fought back at the released infernal, it STILL flagged you and you got killed by the SSO peacekeepers... (really brilliant job on the flagging system there Bliz).

Yes it's an MMO and jerks happen. Does that mean you have to put up with it because it's just a game? Hell no.

I'd like to see those jerks utter that phrase if their accounts got hacked and they lose everything without any hope of a restore.

After all, it's just a game, right?
