The Colosseum: Comotu of Executus {WoW}

Jul 14th 2009 12:49AM The problem is that the questions that are asked are guaranteed to get almost the exact same boring response from every top arena player. I mean seriously, "What's your plan?". Ask any Arena player (Hell as a boxer I'd say ask any fighter period) and if they aren't straight up autistic they'll say they adapt to what their opponent plans to do. The old saw goes "Everyone has a plan until they get in the face", and the inverse is also true "Everyone has a face until they get hit in their game plan" ;)

Ask a Lore Nerd: Looking to the future {WoW}

Jul 13th 2009 10:15PM That disease is colloquially known as "Staghelm's Syndrome" after a famous sufferer.

What If We Lost: An argument for losing a major lore-based battle {WoW}

Jul 12th 2009 10:49PM How the hell is Varian a good leader? We're engaged in a life-or-death struggle across 2 continents and another planet. So our wise leader, upon returning, decides to invade Northrend. /clap?

Officers' Quarters: We PvP {WoW}

Nov 4th 2008 6:37AM Yeah looking at my own comments they are pretty mean sounding, but the point remains that you have to accept it.
You don't walk into a boxing gym and expect to be any good at it, and WoW is no different. It seems to me like, even if you were pretty decent, without the gear or ratings or other outward signs you would be the equivalent of the guy walking into our gym and saying how he's gonna be the next UFC champion and then asking what a jab is.

It isn't any down on you as a person, you might be really good but you need to at least get some coaching first so that you can get that last 10% out in terms of knowledge and "tricks of the trade". The other half of that knowledge is how Guild's work, and the social aspect of it that doesn't really come out till you try to schedule raids ;).

So if you want to try it go for it, but you're far better off IMO cutting your teeth in an already established guild before going off into the open ocean on your own.

Good Luck with whatever you decide!

Ask WoW Insider: Wrath and the pre-60s {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2008 4:26PM No they aren't, because it's a sequel. The Return of the Jedi isn't all that exciting if you're still midway through A New Hope.

Officers' Quarters: We PvP {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2008 4:17PM Yes you can start this guild, but accept (And hopefully have your soon to be guildies accept) that if this is your first endgame character you (And your guild) are going to suck. It's really that simple, unless you the Mozart of PvP your not going to learn this overnight, which is going to mean few well geared and experienced people are going to want to join. (Especially since IMO PvP is very much more about machismo and independence than PvP is)

So your going to get a lot of new players who may or may not actually plan on playing seriously, and may or may not actually be able to achieve that level of play, and may or may not groove with the guild socially. So your going to get a lot of chaff, and likely precious little wheat. If you plan on being feared and renowned then your going to need to be pretty aggressively sorting that wheat out, either by liberal gkicking or a probationary period or both.

All of which is once again compounded by the fact that you state you don't have much experience (Would be helpful to know exactly how much IMO) and thus won't necessarily know what to do. So in my opinion the first thing you want to do is go out and get some gear, some ratings and some knowledge. Once you've got those come back to the idea and it'll be far easier.

[UPDATED] Invincible vengeance no more {WoW}

Nov 1st 2008 10:23AM Is it just me or do ret pallies seem to be acting intentionally stupid when asked tough questions? Like the guy who thought the opening "Hammer" was hammer of wrath rather than HoJ, or the guy further up who thought the "Longest stun in the game" was referring to repentance? Slippery much?

And all this "Holy pallies were only brought for bubble, not their healing ability" is bs. Like druids are brought for our personality and good sense of humor? No, we're brought for LoS HoTing. And shamans are brought specifically for Heroism/Bloodlust in most cases, Fire mages are POM pyro, and Warriors are basically MS and a middling dps. Face it, pvp is based off of a few OP abilities for virtually every class.

Times Online examines WoW's zombies and the connection to real life {WoW}

Oct 30th 2008 8:23PM I think, while outside of a game it might seem unthinkable, once all those assholes in shattrath were infected with a Non-dispellable bird flu IRL, the idea of taking somebody down with you would become a bit commonplace. An example being all the rape, pillage and murder that took place during the Black Death in Europe.

Ask a Lore Nerd: The Burning Legion and equal opportunity corruption {WoW}

Oct 20th 2008 4:36PM Actually, if my guesses are correct, she's going to be aproximately 3-4 times as powerful as killy jay when she's a raid boss in 2010's Maelstrom Expansion, as the leadup to Deathwing.

Around Azeroth: The spaces in-between {WoW}

Oct 16th 2008 7:16PM So now we know what's under Tirisfal Glades...I expect a KYL follow up!

(On another note, I used to have a joke in my guild that Stonetalon lake was the sewage tank of Azeroth because that's where I'd end up when the game went End Times on me)
