May 28th 2009 3:25AM The Orcs helped the Tauren, and the Tauren willfully allied themselves with the horde. I didn't notice the Night Elves helping the Tauren with their genocidal centaur problem.

I find the debate funny. When it happened I took both sides, in the beginning I spread the plague, later I encamped the bank in Org, threw down a clear disease totem for myself, and cured everyone within 3o yrds, while smacking all the zombies who tried to put an end to me with my large shaman sticks of whacking (+5).
The only organized chaos we did was to Silvermoon, we purposely picked a city that was underpopulated. And well, the Crossroads, but that is always fair game, and there was several lowbies sending me /tells to infect them.
It did lend to my theory that there is two type of people in the world; the people who cheer for the good guys, and the people who go for the villains. When I was a kid, i always wanted Dr. Claw, Skeletor, or Cobra Commander to win. Especially Dr. Claw, since he was so much more awesome than Inspector Gadget.
People who want to be good guys must roll Human Allience Paladins as their first toon. People who like villiany must roll just about anything in the Horde as their first toon.
This dichotomy is universal, and quite probably false.

That always got me, work, 99% of the time, is not fun. So why would I want to approach my hobby as work? I tried being a hardcore raider, it was tedious and far to much like having a second job.
When it boils down to it, I really don't give a toss if I'm more geared than anyone else, or if I'm the best, or 1337, or any of that. Its a game, to approach it in any other way (unless you somehow find a way to make your living off of it) is rather unhealthy. Nothing in this game matters one bit, except, maybe, the people you interact with.
May 13th 2009 6:20PM The Piccolo of Flaming Fire... For sure. Though the ultra annoying trainset comes close.
May 13th 2009 1:02PM No shame in that. I generally used to play the anti-class-of-the-moment game, and pick the least popular class at the moment. Mostly for petty personal reasons, but also to see how much I can pull out of them, even if they are perceived as underpowered.
Back in Vanilla, this was my getting a druid to the cap, as kitty feral, and still getting decent DPS. In TBC it was me leveling an Enh shamie. In niether of these cases did I stoop to healing, either, and still got slots, and respect. Oddly, I decided to fix that by leveling a lock why they were the CotM, and now I sit at lvl69, as one of the least played classes.
This makes me wonder whats going to happen to pallies, since I've also got one of them up to 69.
May 13th 2009 12:37PM It was LONG and ANNOYING though.
Its like keeping the same five people on a full-clear BRD run without anyone getting lost or bored and logging. Well maybe not that bad, but still.
I do miss that type of instance though, the ones with interesting mechanics, fights,and huge intricate layouts. A test of endurance, skill, and patience. But then again BRD (and UBRS) are still my favorite instances in the game.

It isn't as fast, accurate, or responsive as using the mouse.
I personally think its a bunch of wasted hate.
May 8th 2009 4:26PM The trip from Milwaukee and Madison IS that bad! My Grandma lived in a small town right between both of them. I went to the local Walgreens there, and EVERY employee looked exactly the same, creepy Aryan teenagers with blonde hair, blue eyes, and a pasty complexion. While I was getting my film developed I kept trying to picture a wall to keep them from my thoughts. The place just screamed German inbreeding. (No, she isn't from there, she's from a place in Minnesota that is almost just as bad)
The fact that literally every corner, of every block, of every town in Wisconsin has a bar with requisite Old Style (or Pabst) signs is also pretty awesome.
My Uncle also live between Madison and Milwaukee, but in the middle of nowhere in the middle of a marsh. It is undeniably beautiful there. He dabbles in livestock, and has a guard llama.
