Feb 9th 2011 10:10PM World of Tanks is surprisingly fun. The match-making is pretty good, and there's a wide variety of tanks to support your favorite playstyle.
Jan 28th 2011 12:16PM re: origin of the term "Twink"
"The gay-slang usage of "twink" has been suggested as a likely origin. One of the unofficial connotations of this usage is "a young/inexperienced person who can outfit himself fashionably because of financial benefits from an older/experienced sugar daddy." This parallels MMORPGs, where in-game money is a strong limiting factor in the virtual economy and gear is usually in the form of clothing and jewelry."
In my 20-odd years of gaming experience, this holds true. The term was borrowed from the gay-slang word, because you're taking a more experienced character to bankroll a low-level one.
Jan 27th 2011 5:07PM We need an article just about SLDataText. It looks neat, but I just can't figure out how to customize it enough to actually be useful.
Jan 20th 2011 7:59PM I'm not. Chaos Orbs are supposed to be difficult to get right now, so I doubt we'll see them on the vendor until at least 4.2 or 4.3
Jan 19th 2011 2:51PM To be honest, you don't really need a portal between SW and Darn. You're pretty much going to be on one continent or the other through your whole questing career.
The only downside is missing out on the SW dailies if you stay in Kalimdor. Of course, I managed to get around that with my Druid by setting my hearthstone to SW and using my teleport to Moonglade when I want to go back to questing in Kalimdor. I just hearth out when I log out, run my dailies when I log in, then teleport and go back to questing.
Jan 13th 2011 4:59PM If you watch your target's spellbar, anything that CANNOT be interrupted will have a shield icon on the end of the cast bar. Everything else is interruptable.
Jan 12th 2011 12:06PM I do wish there was a BoA thrown weapon I could use. I'm leveling a worgen rogue right now, and gave her the BoA gun I bought from the Wintergrasp vendor. I figure I won't get much use out of thrown until FoK is available anyway, and I get a (negligible) bit of Resilience from it.
Really though, it's fun to watch someone run away from my rogue, then shoot them in the back with a big ol' gun. :D
Jan 11th 2011 3:18PM ... You're worried about only showing 25 people when you admit the only place 40-mans happen anymore are two battlegrounds?
Jan 11th 2011 3:16PM I can't seem to find "baugbag" online. Any help?
Jan 6th 2011 8:58PM The fun part is when you find one artifact, do a Survey, and find another artifact in the exact same spot... then Survey, and find the THIRD artifact in the same spot. :D
