Insider Trader: Woodworking in the expansion continued {WoW}

Jul 25th 2009 10:13PM If paper making is tied into this profession, it'll be a little weird. Especially if that paper is used by Scribes for their magical writings.

Some the best paper in the world is made not from paper, but from cloth. Wood-pulp paper tends to dry, crack and turn to dust in around a hundred years. Linen paper? Hundreds and hundreds of years. Wonderful stuff.

Jul 17th 2009 9:46AM @zach - That'd be some crappy parchment. Paper made out of woodpulp is incredibly horrible and falls apart very quickly. It would make much more sense to make the paper from cloth or make actual parchment from animal skins.

You make a good point that no one makes paper in WoW. It must be coming from somewhere!

Breakfast Topic: Favorite in-game settlement {WoW}

Jun 21st 2009 9:41AM Freewind Post. Man, I love that zone. But I'll never forget the first time I went there with one of my characters and the signs pointed me up the extremely long, circuitous ramp instead of just a little bit further on until I could see the easy and convenient elevator.

Patch 3.2 PTR patch notes {WoW}

Jun 18th 2009 2:43PM "The ravasaur trainer Mor'vek has returned to Un'Goro and will offer to help Horde players raise and train a Venomhide Ravasaur as a mount... if they can survive the creature's deadly poison."

Ravasaur mount?! Finally! This was unexpected, but is awesome!

More cakes, plates, and tats in our galleries {WoW}

Jun 16th 2009 1:40PM I've had tattoos for years now, and I love them. I get more tattoos every year. I'm not sure I'd ever get a game related tattoo, but all my fine printing tattoos bring me great joy.

Jun 16th 2009 10:45AM Tattoos aren't for everyone.

And as for the whole how they look when you're older thing? That's always been part of the point for me. They change with the years just like we do. I remember looking at my grandpa's sailor tattoos and thinking "Oh man, that's awesome" even though they were grey-green blurred old things. Can't wait.

If you don't like them, you don't have to get one. We're not going to force you guys under the needle, even if some of you might look really pretty with them.

The best zone of Wrath {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2009 8:17PM As a huge Tauren fan, I liked the Tundra better than the Fjord for questing, but only because in the Tundra you start the huge questline of inducting the Taunka into the Horde.

May 25th 2009 4:07PM Presumably the best part is that if if you just get one, it'll soon bring all of its friends along!

Breakfast Topic: The ardent Argent {WoW}

May 25th 2009 12:49PM I don't think they're screwing over casuals. As a lot of other posters have pointed out, you can get together a group to kill Chillmaw, but some of us choose not to. Most daily quests (Oracles/Frenzyheart, Zul'Drak, Wyrmrest Accord, Kalu'ak), are all pretty well positioned for casual players. If you don't like them that's another issue, but there's plenty to do for someone who doesn't want to group.

Besides, most casual people do group, and as this site points out frequently, casual raiding is here, and from the looks of it, here to stay.

Breakfast Topic: The ardent Argent {WoW}

May 25th 2009 12:26PM I'm sorry if I seemed whiny about it, because I really didn't mean to. When the AT stuff was first announced it felt like they were designing something I could really get in to, and that was pretty great. It was content that I could do and not just sit and think about how awesome it was for everyone who happened to be actually doing it.

I understand that group quests are a huge part of this game, and I certainly don't think that WoW should be a single player thing. I like the story, the lore, and the fact that the story actually seems to be progressing along with you as the player. You can play it your way and I'll play it my way, but I really like the AT as it is, and I was hoping that when the Coliseum got finished I could head in there on my own and do something else than watch from the stands.

Plus, I can't be the only one who hopes the AT isn't going to be the only new raid in 3.2. I was hoping for Grim Batol or some other undeveloped area.
