Sep 14th 2009 3:22PM You know what I loved? The feeling of getting epic flight for the first time. I farmed for weeks to get it. I auctioned leather and buff food, I scrimped and saved every piece-of-garbage grey I pulled off a Talbuk. I vendored all the non-essentials.
But at the end of it all, there was my shaman, freewheeling through the Nether-blasted skies of Draenor on the back of his very own Swift Red Windrider, wrapped in broken hunter mail and never happier. That's freedom, hard-won and exhilarating, whirling and pinwheeling over the alien minarets of Shattrath.
Jun 15th 2009 6:05PM So, what does this have to do with WoW, exactly?
It's all well and good that you're legitimizing some random fetish with this article, but what the does this "Aishalove" do in the game? She doesn't raid, she doesn't PVP, she's not in a furry guild, she isn't connected to any kind of a furry community in WoW. If I wanted a history lesson on people who make believe they're half Alsatian, half Manticore I'd wikipedia it.
Come on, Lisa. At least try to stay on message here.

Apr 5th 2009 12:09PM I guess it's not a popular opinion, but I was annoyed enough that they recycled Naxxramas. The Warcraft universe is rich enough that we can afford to clear up some old storylines.
Something involving the Grimtotem clan would be appropriate. Or the Searing Blade. Or what about some of the other Orc clans that weren't dealt with in Burning Crusade? How about putting an end to the Shadow Council once and for all? Let's crack open Gilneas before we re-do Wailing Caverns.
The old instances are part of what makes leveling an alt so appealing. Where once I ran Wailing Caverns as a wide-eyed noob, learning about things like aggro and why some other players are idiots, I can now return as a fresh level 20 and relive those days.
Mar 7th 2009 11:18AM When did enchanters get such a hair up their butt? Fine, I see both sides of the issue, but crying about it in pugs merely shows off your angry nerd entitlement issues.
If it's such a big deal, whine about it before the run. That way, everyone can just roll need on everything and you can happily disenchant whatever falls into your pack. Or, to keep things nice and fair, you can insist on rolling for those cobalt nodes and borean leather.
Or, you can realize that there are always other pugs, there will always be more shards, and just play your best. Too many times have I see someone be "that guy" and ruin everyone else's enjoyment over something petty.
Jan 13th 2009 11:04PM I haven't finished a heroic Gundrak in weeks because the PUG healers I end up with have been in frigging Merciless gear and level 72 quest reward blues.
I actually made a post about this on the healing forum and kind of got stomped for it.
This post is spot on. Don't be the guy dragging the rest of the group down. Don't be the rogue doing 800 dps, or the healer with 13k mana who goes OOM on the first pull. It wastes my time as a tank, it wastes the group's time, and it wastes your time getting saved to a doomed heroic simply because you overreached your gear.
No sense being lazy.
Jan 10th 2009 5:27AM ... So what the hell good are they? They take up bag space, you pick up hundreds of them doing Hodir dailies (an efficient source of income even for those already exalted), and vendor for peanuts. They're like the Argent Dawn rep turn-ins redux.
It won't break the game to let us trade 'em. The exalted enchants are going to be necessary once Ulduar hits, and a lot of dedicated raiders are already exalted with the Sons anyway.
Jan 2nd 2009 10:07AM I don't have a universal rule. Usually I go with my gut. I've run enough heroics by this point in the expansion to know when there's a problem - either mobs aren't dying fast enough, there's not enough threat going on, or if the people I'm running with are too tough to deal with, I'll usually make my excuses and leave.
In my opinion, wipes aren't an acceptable excuse for abandoning a PUG. Wipes happen, whether the healer was too close and Skadi one-shotted him, or the DPS wouldn't stop hitting Zuramat while Shroud of Darkness was up and got healed to death. They just happen, and you just look like a prima donna if you leave in a huff.
