Cataclysm Class Changes: Hunter {WoW}

Apr 9th 2010 2:25PM I imagine you'd have to keep one of your active slots empty to do something like that.

Debunking another hacked authenticator story {WoW}

Feb 9th 2010 2:05PM @Faar

A) I'll admit ignorance on this issue since I have no idea what an App can and can't do on the iPhone with regards to other Apps and how secure that is.

B) Yes there is. Honestly I can't find a link right now but the EFF had a website up that would display all your information. The browser you were using, the cookies you had stored on your machine, the operating system (and the version) etc. It would be negligible for a malicious website to figure out that you're using an iPhone.

C) Unless of course you have the Armory App and switch it to automatically log in when you activate the app.

D) See "C"

I do agree with your overall point though. The security is "good enough" all things considered.

WoW.com Guest Post: Is Arthas redeemable? {WoW}

Feb 4th 2010 10:03AM On the issue of why the scourge are more dangerous without a Lich King I'd like to throw out a couple of ideas. I personally don't like the idea that Arthas is holding them back due to some subconscious guilt so I'm trying to come up with some alternate theories.

1) Hangk speculated that without appointing a Lich King some other powerful Scourge would take up the job and possibly be just as dangerous or more as Arthas. It's not so much that "there must always be a Lich King" rather "there will always be a LIch King." If they don't take charge to reign in the Scourge someone else will and they might not be so benevolent.

2) My personal theory is that spreading of a wave of death and destruction is not really part of TLK's goals. TLK doesn't just want to kill people, he wants to create a world of undead. He doesn't want to destroy villages and kingdoms, he wants to use them.That requires a lot more planning and thought than running around mindlessly killing and destroying everything you see. Unleashing the Scourge would probably be more detrimental to his end goals than beneficial.

Ghostcrawler on hunter ammo replacement {WoW}

Jan 25th 2010 10:54AM I think a healthy compromise would be to remove the ammo itself and bring back the ammo containers! The ammo pouch can contain the buffs and procs instead of the ammo. It could work similarly to the durability system. When the pouch reaches zero it isn't broken, it's empty. Blizzard can then add a "Refill Ammo" button down where the Repair all Items button is on vendors.

This way you can keep ammo management "realistic" but at the time streamline the whole process of restocking while still being able to have a wide variety of different types of ammo.

Breakfast Topic: Make it all BoA {WoW}

Dec 17th 2009 12:28PM What is it about this kind of topic that makes people come up with ridiculously exaggerated hypothetical examples? Do you do this in real life?

"Honey, I think we should get red curtains for the bedroom windows."

"Oh yeah sure, why not? Why not just pain the entire house red! Yeah that's great. We'll paint the outside and the inside red. We'll dye the carpets red. I'll even pain myself red since you like it so much!"

"Hey this sandwich tastes pretty good. Wanna bite?"

"What? You expect me to eat nothing but sandwiches for the rest of my life?! What the hell is wrong with you?"

Seriously, stick to the subject and people might actually take you seriously.

I think the concern is directed more towards alts who just dinged 80, haven't run any dungeons or raids with that class and getting decked out in full T9 gear. Would you want to raid with that guy? I agree that it isn't game breaking or anything, but it's a cause for concern.

One huge advantage though is that it might increase the amount of tanks and healers in the LFG dungeon finder. Why wait in the queue with your DPS when you could go in instantly with your alt tank and transfer the badges later?

Breakfast Topic: Abuse of the "Report player AFK" feature {WoW}

Dec 1st 2009 10:33AM "but if you are in the middle of an actual BG you have better things to do than type "avocado endometriologist" into a box."

Yeah but combined with the current "enter battle and clear AFK" system it could work. If you're more than two minutes away from a battle you have time to type out two words.

Dec 1st 2009 10:11AM Captcha in WoW? Well it's not ideal but I guess it would work in cutting down false AFK reports.

Patch 3.3 PTR: New LFG interface {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2009 1:42PM He probably interpreted it to mean that the 68 gold would be split amongst the 5 players involved which comes out to 13.6 gold.
