Jun 13th 2009 7:26AM Say you are walking by a gym and see a really nice bike just leaning towards the wall. No one is in sight, you know the owner is probably working out inside.
Would you take the bike and drive off because the owner was "stupid enough" not to chain it down?
I wouldn't. And I'd like to think that when I don't lock my front door during a sunny afternoon no one will sneak in and steal my shoes.
This is how I see the scammers. They are people who would steal your umbrella the moment you run off to care for you child and leave it on a park bench. It's low. Pityful.

You were insulting. And you did mean to insult me, otherwise you wouldn't have done so. I however, won't sink to your level.
What I merely meant to say was that MMOs evolve around the idea of character progression. If there were none, people would have no motivation to play MMOs. I too enjoy PvP, RPing or just running raids that yield no upgrades for me for fun, but in the end it's not what the game revolves around.
Blizzard themselves keep implementing this system. If it weren't so they could just have added more hard encounters to this game without adding new gear rewards. That would be completely possible seeing how the current design works, but people would hardly have the motivations to do these encounters after doing them once if there were no further rewards involved.
Claiming this game isn't all about character progression is all nice in theory. But even collecting and PvPing is character progression. Personally, I don't know anyone who plays WoW only for the social aspect of it or RP and keeps their toons at low level because they're not interested in progressing them.
Jun 11th 2009 4:00PM I suggest you also take your computer back to the store and demand a refund because people can buy it for a far smaller price than 3 years ago. Do tell us afterwards how it went.
Jun 11th 2009 1:10PM Tweaking players to match instance difficulty is a strange idea. The whole goal of an MMO is to advance your character through levels and through gear. What would be the point of running such dungeon as you are proposing? No level advancement, no prospect of better gear. It seems a little pointless.
Jun 9th 2009 1:33PM As for the useless PvE speccs, frost mages are indeed a very good example.
Even if you pick up all the necessary PvE glyphs (removing snare from Frostbolt for one) and dump all the uselful PvP talents in favor of PvE talents (mostly in the arcane tree), you will still be way under Frostfire, Fire and Arcane mages in damage output. What you end up with is a specc that is neither good in PvP (lack of snares and survivability) nor in PvE (lack of damage).
Jun 8th 2009 2:31PM Yes, you are free to try the quest as many times as you want, it's been confirmed on MMO-champion.

... the outrage all over internet obviously. ^^
Jun 8th 2009 1:52PM The outrage over this weapon going to a druid is really fascinating.
Envy really does bring up the worst in people.
Jun 8th 2009 6:10AM As a 450 fisherman myself, the only thing I'd add to fishing is some sort of targeting mechanic, as I also find it very frustrating to sometimes spend multiple casts not landing anywhere near where I'd want them.
Implement a targeting circle. The higher the fishing skill the smaller the targeting circle is (it might shrink every 50 skill points or so). At skill 1 it might be as big as the targeting circle for Blizzard or Rain of Fire, while at skill 450 it would be as small as a school of fish. The bobble would always land within this circle.
Implementing such mechanic would also perhaps allow for removal of the need to click on the bobble when a fish bites, since there already is the interaction of having to place the targeting circle on the ground.
Jun 6th 2009 8:40AM I really can't think of anything too obvious that I do with my alts. Only, perhaps, that most of my character's names end with -ri. But I suppose that's just because I like how the names sound.
The only exception is my priest Ceradene (obviously my nickname) who was named after an old friend of mine. :)
