Apr 12th 2011 5:04PM I found this to be a more intelligent post than most on this subject. Something I haven't seen anywhere though (maybe I've been missing it? I'll admit disgust has led me to not reading alot of posts on this lately) is the impact of being able to PvP to get JP on the dungeon finder.
IMHO, I think it's significantly more likely the conversion of some 370 HP to 250 JP will lower the wait time for dps than the bribe bags. I have a dps, tank, and healer. I don't queue with any of them. Will I with the changes? Yup! I"ll be heading to battlegrounds, where I'd bet gold that my dps will get more JP per hour, and I will see less abuse in general. Yes I just said less abuse in a BG, most of those people aren't directing the abuse at you specifically.
Mar 5th 2011 3:04PM I live in my car and out and about, so I have a gaming capable laptop. This means that in addition to playing in bed (ie at home between driving and working), or at my in-laws (usually my day off every other week or so), I am holed up in whatever wi-fi accessible 'cave' I can find. This ranges from the public library that I love, to Starbucks, Paneras, Barnes and Nobles, etc.
The weirdest place I've ever played? Probably a professional conference I attended a few years ago I was to give a talk/presentation in. I had an attack of nerves, so I set up on one of the benches outside the conference rooms in my 'professional wear', and in full view of an entire professions worth of colleagues and heavy hitters, checked my mail and chatted with some in-game friends. Mundane stuff like that helped me calm down, but my friends thought I was *nuts*. I know it's not that weird, but it's all relative.

Dec 9th 2010 9:28AM I was really looking forward to guild perks and our usual guild activities (we're a smallish social guild that just does fun things and the achievement/levelling system seemed perfectly tailored to us) counting for more than they have.
But now you can't make the perks happen, they just kinda do on their own. It took 2 leveling toons 3 hours (both were levelling at once) to hit our cap. You can't 'work' towards this. The changes make it pretty dissapointing, though the perks themselves will be nice there's nothing we can do to work on them. So frankly, kinda hardly keeping track. /shrug
The achievements with tangible rewards are another matter.
