You bring up some valid points.
But you're coming across as a total doucebag in the process. Which encourages people to tune you out, even if you're factually correct.
And congratulations on the Microsoft certs. Keep working hard, and you're earn some real credentials eventually.
Sep 20th 2011 12:41PM Do you play on US-Staghelm-Alliance, by any chance? That's exactly what we suspect is happening there. One of the botting trios mysteriously vanished for exactly one week a while back, but then came back to pretty much his old tricks.
May 20th 2011 1:41PM People are having a difficult time differentiating between "Anthricyst" and "Antichrist".
In other news, ~20% of Americans think the sun goes around the earth (though Germans and Brits recently haven't really fared any better on this question).
I guess people who fail third-grade science are also confused by new words, especially if they contain a "y".
Apr 30th 2011 1:55PM FWIW, I'm with SteveB. Whether it's robes-over-plate, or some sort of banded mail, or magical plate, I like the kilted pally look. We were originally basically multiclass warrior/priests; I dig the kilt paying homage to our priestly roots.
Apr 30th 2011 1:41PM @Revynn: "If nothing else, I guess 'not crazy about them' is much better than 'Ewww, I have to wear THAT!??!' . . . ya know, like Warlock T10. "
Okay, T10 was no Corruptor or Malefic, but I can't be the only one who, upon seeing the helm, said, "My 'lock gets to be a friggin' Death Eater? Sign me up!"
Apr 30th 2011 1:33PM I'd just like to be able to walk around looking/feeling like a paladin.
I get that the designers explore the tier theme sometimes with their sets. I get that it starts to suck at some point being told: "Armor sets. Okay, show me 'paladin' with armor, in a completely different way than you have the last eleven times I asked you this." But as a pally, I already share all my gear with warriors and, of all things, death knights, so I'm pretty much never going to get plate armor generally that looks like something a paladin would wear. Tier is the one place the designers make armor specifically for a class, so I wish it would actually look appropriate for the class. Because as a paladin, my theme isn't "freakish stone bird", and, as others have noted, it certainly isn't "warlock".
Apr 29th 2011 3:22AM I'd like to know more about the unlockable gear vendors. Ilvl 365 gear? Is it going to be purchasable from the Marks of the World Tree you grind solo? That sounds great, but it's a departure from how top-tier PvE gear has so far been gated behind killing raid bosses, or at least a lot of heroic 5-man runs (themselves gated on a daily basis).
Apr 28th 2011 4:00PM @Thomas Higgins:
So you admit your dps is pretty abysmal, but you're still gaming the system to get into heroics? I hope you're going in with friends/guildies who know the score; joining a random group through the DF is just being inconsiderate to your fellow players.
Really, there's no shame in running normal dungeons to gear up for heroics. Add in dailies and tabards for rep and a piece of justice point gear or two, and it really won't be all that long before your have both the ilvl and the actual performance for heroics.
Apr 20th 2011 1:03PM I'm with @talkingmike; in today's climate, "science idiot" can't just be left without comment.
Do you live in a home on the grid? Thank the "science idiots"; they're the ones who figured out how to harness electricity. Do you get around in an automobile? Again, it's the "science idiots" who are behind the internal combustion engine and all the associated engineering that makes cars work. Hell, are you over the age of, oh, say, 30? Odds are, without the "science idiots" in the fields of medicine and nutrition, you'd be dead by now.
I don't understand how some modern people in developed countries, who can't turn around without bumping into something science has produced to improve life, can be so hostile towards science. Science has given life today the possibility of being far less solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short than it was in the Dark Ages. Count me in as a fan.
