Mar 20th 2009 9:06PM I feel for quest helper, I really do. I remember my third week playing, signing in and all my gold was gone and my bank empty due to a keylogger being placed in the code. Good times those were.
Jan 18th 2009 7:21PM Personally, in groups of strangers that are not mostly of a guild / raid group with a trustworthy master looter, I prefer all need and leave it to chance. Greed if you want to sell the loot. The drama and crying is solved very fast with a kick and snagging another member. With strangers let the rules of random numbers control.
Running with a raid or guild group obviously either you deal with their master looter gearing their guild and not expect any loot, or get a good master looter who is fair and has a system that works.
That said being a Hunter all gear is Hunter gear so this whole need / greed / pass thing is just silly, since I need it all ;)
Nov 18th 2008 9:12AM I agree here totally. The quests are just fun to do. My Hunter leveled a bit but I am still in the starting zones to see where the quests lead too. Between the quests and how dense the zones are with new stuff every few feet that are like mini-areas with big differences in environment not concerned about hitting as much as playing around and having fun.
It is funny as I am leveling my priest alt through outlands and it is night and day. There I am look for the quests that will be the fastest to do, and here I do not care about leveling and do anything I get questwise.
Nov 15th 2008 5:28PM My thoughts exactly. They prepped to rushed the content, odds are with their builds and tactics already planned from beta. Really says nothing about the game, but hardcore raiders with access to beta will be able to easily do the same stuff this week that they did two weeks ago.
Either way they would have reported a problem. It is a catch 22. If they could not beat the new content even after having months of beta to practice in, they could have claimed it is far too hard.
Oh well, not sure what people want. Hardcore players are a tiny fraction of the player base, and people who do stuff like this do it as more of a stunt than to prove anything. They get my props for doing it, but their opinion is really meaningless since Blizz should not be catering to people at the extreme high end. They learned from Sunwell I assume.
Oct 17th 2008 9:31AM Well, this is one of the reasons scribes are pricing so high. Figure within a week, the sales will die and prices will bottom out. Then with the second specs come there will be another, and maybe a wave sooner when people get the new must have builds set up, but over all I do not see this as a huge money maker over time. For me at least, I banked on a burst of profit at the start to justify the time involved [I prepped since it was explained how this would work], but did not expect much more than supplying my guild after the rush dies down.
I would wait say three weeks to even buy inscriptions if you do not have a scribe because with all the people pumping them out, sooner or later the law of supply and demand will kick in and you will see some being sold at below cost even.
