Nov 25th 2009 8:15AM I have a friend who LARPs (Well, a lot of friends who LARP, but only one who does this) who keeps his hands busy by doing the awesomest knitting variant of all - making chainmail. It's cheap (two pairs of pliers and a box of washers from building supplies stockists), and the easiest way of getting chain that fits you well is to make it yourself.
Nov 23rd 2009 1:28PM Entering contest! Must make this a good comment, can't have myself win and then feel bad about winning with ZOMG MUST HAEV.
So, meta-commentary on my own comment is the order of the day.
Oct 10th 2008 11:45PM That's the kind of thing that could happen with the new particle engine, possible in a less "real content"-heavy patch in the future. There must already be attachment points for effects (Just like the ones for heroes in WC3), and hands is one that we know for certain exists. Class-animation glyphs, perhaps requiring talents, would be quite interesting. A deep-fire mage could take a minor glyph giving him a permanent fire effect, to use your example. A way of broadcasting your spec visibly would be quite fun nothing else for scaring off potential adversaries in PvP.
Sep 24th 2008 7:17AM I rolled a lock as my first character, completely at random, when invited to try the game out at a friend's place. I then decided to start playing WoW a couple of months later, and revisited my choice. Part of what made me roll a Lock was my time playing D&D. While other caster classes in D&D have a set number of spells per day, then they're down to hitting things with a stick or using items, the D&D Warlock has a limited repertoire of spells in comparison to other casters, but can cast them all as often as he likes - especially his standard "Nuke", the Shadowb- "Eldritch Blast". Finding that my favourite D&D caster's WoW likeness had the same style of play - methodical whittling of enemies, without downtime, was what sealed the deal for me. Since then, I've come to love the Warlock's style of play so much that I've had trouble trying to level a mage at all - I can't stand sitting around, drinking. Sure, that burst DPS is nice for killing things quickly, but what use is it to kill something in half the time if you then spend thirty seconds chugging Glacier Water and omnomnomming cinnamon swirls?
