Warlocks find their pets renamed in patch 4.0.1 [Updated] {WoW}

Oct 14th 2010 5:23AM I love the macro, but still happier that I am getting my Imp back

Warlocks find their pets renamed in patch 4.0.1 [Updated] {WoW}

Oct 14th 2010 3:46AM I miss my imp. It was Nalyap, which sounds like Palin when you say it backwards. Glad to hear I get her back.

Gold Capped: The bag market is not going away with Cataclysm {WoW}

Oct 7th 2010 7:49PM I think this will be a non-issue when cata comes out. These bags revered with the individual race faction. For people leveling alts, where I see my best sales coming fromfor Netherweave bags, will not want to wait until the low level toon gets revered with each faction to fill out those slots.

Breakfast Topic: Dude, where's my ram? {WoW}

Oct 5th 2010 12:05PM I went into this with 5 80's. After 3 years (4 brewfests) my main still does not have either mount or the remote. The humorous and annoying part is that most of my alts got 2 or 3 of the same mounts, and all but one got 2 copies of the remote.

I swear the Blizzard RNG gods hate my main.

Drama Mamas: Friends behaving badly {WoW}

Sep 28th 2010 3:22PM I have a simple response when someone is in trade or whispering me begging for gold.

"I have some gold for you. I left it with some NPC's. They are easy to find. Look for the ones with the '!' or '?' over their heads."

Seriously, with each expansion and most of the content patches, blizzard throws gold at you so even if you are pathologically incapable of questing, there are so many ways to make gold it's pathetic. "Hey, I'm too lazy to get my behind out of a city long enough to quest, can you give me some gold to feed my addiction to AH gear?" is not enough justification.

Guest Post: The death of in-game interaction {WoW}

Aug 22nd 2010 4:54PM I have liked some of the changes, but have not been excited about the "Dumbing down of Wow"

The concept of "truly rare" patterns/mats etc... I am less enthused by. I was/am in a raiding guild that has downed most of the HM content when it was relevant. Although I joined the guild as max a tailor/enchanter with most patterns then available, when Ulduar and ToC were released, the GM modified our loot policy to say that rare pattern drops would go to an official "craftsperson" and if they had it, it could be bought from the GV. That concept didn't exist until he funneled patterns to his friends and people got upset. Coincidentally, all the official craftspeople were long time friends of the GM.

I much prefer the ICC route where, with the price and rep, you can buy the patterns.

As far as player interaction, I like the speed with which I can find a group for random instances with LFG, but the anonymity that cross realm groups provide has made interaction even more painful. The number of times I've seen a new player group member greeted with "You'd better not suck" or "OMG another fail from x-server" is ridiculous.

Tanks/healers/dps dropping group at the 1st boss when they get the item the wanted or didn't, they had to work harder than an 80 in RFC/Deadmines, or people are voted out immediately following a boss for some because they didn't pull 8k dps as a relatively new 80 is depressing.

The internet breeds anonymity, the current LFG system breeds social retardation.

Drama Mamas: Tank entitlement {WoW}

Aug 8th 2010 2:20PM I had that happen last night while healing SM Lib on my priest. A hunter rolled need on a Int/Stam staff. I asked, "Did you really just roll need on a caster staff." He won the roll and 30 seconds later said "yep.", then Lol'ed.

He wasn't laughing so hard when neither he nor his pet got healing for quite sometime after it. I never let him die, but unless he was going to, he didn't get any. All that mana he had to use on his pet healing gimped his dps. After that, he behaved like a good netizen and felt some healer love.

Drama Mamas: Tank entitlement {WoW}

Aug 8th 2010 7:24AM When I tank and this happens, I tell them flat out, "If you pull again, I'll let you die." Once I had to back it up, most of the time, it did the trick.

People are spoiled by the speed runs. The sooner they get it down, the sooner they can move on. That works for those of us who are ICC geared, but not those folks who either just leveled an alt or got their 1st toon to 80.

Folks, (tanks, DPS, and healers included) need to remember that; yes, we pay to play this game for fun, but so did the other members of your party.
