Nov 6th 2008 2:16PM Eh, I care little either way about new or old look being better, but the thing that bothers me is that I can't find several features. Most notably, All the World's a Stage, its not to be found.
Oct 23rd 2008 8:37AM Rough? Psh, upgrade to S-mart's top of the line Lovingly Crafted Boomstick! More powerful, better reliability and the quality YOU deserve!
Oct 19th 2008 12:40PM Only if its done right. I think if they allow it should be limited like you are with a death night, you have to have a 55 on the account and you can only do it once on a given server.
Oct 14th 2008 12:33PM Find a halfway decent set of gear, use my free respec to turn my druid into a healer and wait in the low 60's for the surge of death knights that will be storming into Outland. God it will be wonderful to finally have a regular raise spell...
Oct 14th 2008 8:09AM 72 stacks huh? Got a bit of overkill then...
I plant to push it as far as I can tonight when the servers come back up.
Oct 4th 2008 2:24PM There is going to have to be some catch though, a flat cost but lower, only usable at max level after paying a fee or doing a quest, having to talk to a special trainer to do it every time. It can't just be a free switch any time, any place you want it.

Sep 26th 2008 6:45PM I've tried to read most of the comments and I have yet to see anyone say this. The basic ideas behind all this is to stop afkers from getting gear easily. Some raiders will probably whine about anyone getting gear to easily, but this won't matter for my point later so we'll ignore it.
The point is this, all battlegrounds, at least the originals have a faction linked to them, with the faction you gain rep and access to the old rewards used to be based on that rep. Well, why not return to a system like that?
Make a set, maybe 2, of battleground PvP gear. It doesn't have to be as good as raiding or arena gear, just decent. Have a low end, perhaps blue, and high end set, maybe only 6 pieces or so, head, shoulders, chest, legs, weapons, shields. Now here's the trick, split the pieces between the different factions.
The lower end gear might take revered, the chest is with the Stormpike Guard (I play alliance so I'll go with those factions for this), the legs, well thats Silverwing, and so on, giving each faction a piece or two of gear. Same holds true for the next level, exalted rep leads to the high end set. The gear is of course bought with honor and tokens gained from BG. Now how this stops AFkers, well its widely known fact that most people farm AV for honor, and they can go ahead and do that, the rep will come in with Stormpike and they get access to a piece or two of gear. But thats it, there is no more gear to have without getting in good with the other factions. Now I think it would be a lot harder to AFK your way though Warsong for example, so to get those pieces of gear you gotta play the game. Slap on some extra rep for a win and there ya go. A BG only system that will help with the AFKer problem and require a real commitment from players to get a hold of all the gear.
There is already something a lot like this, the 5 piece sets of starter PvP gear for being honored with the different Burning Crusade factions. Just carry the system over and set the bar a bit higher.

"I'm jealous of every Felguard
Underneath the sun
I don't wish I had a Felguard pet, no
I wish that I WAS one.
Oh I wish I was a Felguard,
with bad teeth and spiky back
With a charge that doesn't miss
Whenever I attack
To be able to enter combat
With a bar full of blue rage
to start shooting off specials
the very moment I engage!
To wield a mighty 2H axe
without worry of the cost
A felguard isn't 'normalized'
so no rage there is lost
And to fight my foes half naked
without a speck of fear
Oh to be a felguard
un-dependent on gear!
Sure I'd be a warlocks slave
won't bother me in the least
No different than things are now
I'm shackled to a priest!
So Blizzard if you're listening
(Yeah right, we've no such luck)
I wish I was a Felguard
So then I could cease to suck."
