Apr 5th 2011 11:55AM So I was watching the original opening game cinematic the other day from the login screen and I noticed that all the Horde and Alliance races were accounted for except for two. There was not a single gnome nor troll represented in the entire cinematic. That, combined with the fact that gnomes and trolls are the two races that didn't have their own unique starting zone makes me wonder if they were late to become playable races in the development process.
Feb 8th 2010 10:58AM i heard a bunch of people on the alliance side of bloodhoof trying to find a troll rogue, but i didn't have a problem finding a couple hanging out in front of the bank in dalaran. i think the hardest for me to find was an orc death knight oddly enough. actually both orc classes were the last on my list.
Feb 2nd 2010 11:57AM phew. thank god. maybe it might make it so that it takes less than half a raid to take down a resto druid.
Jan 13th 2010 5:40PM So there are the indisputable numbers... so my question is why, if rogues were doing so much more dps and still are doing more dps, that the perception is, especially among those that count on the ground-- raid leaders and the like-- that rogues are inferior?
This isn't a QQ, it's just a question of perception as a whole. And it's not because I'm getting left out of raids. Honestly, I raid very little and prefer PVP on my rogue. But from what I see on multiple wow forums and talking to others and watching /2 trade and /1 local is that DKs, Paladins and Feral seem to be widely considered a superior DPS choice.
Is it because of a large number of stupid rogues that people have dealt with in the past? My guess is that rogues seem to have a longer ramp-up compared to other melee DPS and that the top tier rogues do insane DPS and other classes scale a little more gracefully.

Dec 28th 2009 2:45PM i haven't noticed any quakes that i can recall, but i did notice the other day that the demons in front of the portal in hellfire are more ornery than usual, many of them breaking away from the perpetual fight in front of the stairs and rushing into the portal.
Dec 14th 2009 3:27PM in addition to the orbs and shards, i've made quite a crapload of money with leather. especially in places like the violet eye, where almost everything can be skinned and yield several leather a pop, sometimes up to 8. i've come out of quite a few dungeons with 2 or 3 full stacks of borean leather.
Dec 13th 2009 2:16AM excellent post. this has been a problem on the wow forums for a while and only getting worse. the forums are there for the purpose of feedback and discussion, but all too often, legitimate and helpful discussion are ruined or drowned out by that incredibly vocal minority.
i've been playing for 4 years and i think blizz has done an incredible job of guiding and building the game. I don't agree with all of their decisions and sometimes I wish they would micromanage class stats a little less, but overall I've learned to trust them. This is a company that has consistently made some of the best games out there and they know damn well what they're doing.
but to what extent does blizzard listen to the vocal minority? i imagine that they take in the good suggestions and ditch the majority of the bad or unworkable ones. but it certainly is a detriment to the community as a whole to let the ragers dictate the conversation.
Dec 11th 2009 12:09PM that makes me want to stick my head in a boiling vat of Tuskarr oil. and not in a good way.
Dec 8th 2009 4:24PM Back in the old days, when on many servers, you had to sometimes wait upwards of an hour just to get onto a server, I submitted a loading screen shot that showed that I had 55 minutes to wait before there was a spot open to Blizzard's daily screenshot thingy and they actually sent me a "We are not amused" email. Good times.
