World of Warcraft: Cataclysm map {WoW}

Aug 21st 2009 4:41PM My only problem is that Kul Tiras seems to be missing :[

It got sunken perhaps? Sounds like something for Q&A tomorrow.

The Queue: Nobody expects the Druid Inquisition! {WoW}

Aug 19th 2009 10:05PM That's all we needed, a Druish Inquisition!




I'm both proud and ashamed of that line.

Clarification on upcoming Engineering changes in 3.2 {WoW}

The troll is wearing goggles.

:O

Shifting Perspectives: The day has come, part 2 {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2009 10:56PM First of all, let me dance in joy at the imminant destruction of the old Tauren cat form. A good article too, thank you for going over all the misconceptions that currenty surround the new forms.

As for the new Tauren cat, initially I disliked them for pretty much the same reasons as yourself. But I the more I look at them, the more I like them. I think the problem comes from the fact that Blizz decided to only show us pictures that focus on the faces, the angles they chose pretty much hide most of the bodies which makes it hard to judge. I like the markings and the tassles, the nose ring is cool but as to why my female tauren is suddenly donning one when she shifts to cat form, well, that's gonna take a bit of thinking about. :P

Breakfast Topic: What do you think of the new bear druid skins? {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2009 9:38AM I find it strange that so many people complain about the cat form mane on the female Tauren when the female Tauren themselves have manes on the back of their necks. :\

Don't get me wrong, I know where you're coming from. I play a lady tauren druid myself and I was initially wierded out by the mane too, I just got used to the idea after a while (even though the model itself looks like arse, fingers crossed the new one is much better). I just figure that Tauren aren't shapeshifting into lions specifically, more just a cat version of themselves, so the gender rules regarding lion manes don't nessesarily apply to them. That being said, if Blizzard does decide to create a different cat model for us lady Taurens I won't be arguing. ;)

Back to the topic, I am in love with the new bear forms so far, Tauren AND Night Elf. I do agree with the majority here though in sayign that the tauren forms look a little better though. As much as I love the NE bears, those sideburns look a little out of place for my liking. Glad they got rid of the ugly furless face though. The Tauren bears are just full of win. I can't wait to see the Cat forms and I hope we see some more druid skin updates soon.

Throw your own egg hunt with Noblegarden Eggs {WoW}

Apr 27th 2009 6:41AM Thankfully good sir, you don't need to run a flag in WSG for the School of Hard Knocks achievement, you just need to return a fallen one back to your base. This presents it own problems since not only will you have to be near where the flag carrier was killed but also everyone else, achievement hunters or no, will be trying to click it back. So if you have terrible latency or lag (like me QQ) good luck to ya.

You DO need to run a flag to a base in Eye of the Storm. But the trip is much shorter and you'll have much more of an opportunity to do so. An average match has about 20 or so flag runs. Just remember to bubble and run like your Violet Proto-drake depends on it and you'll be fine.

Breakfast Topic: Should the girlfriend play WoW? {WoW}

Jan 8th 2009 10:42AM I find it interesting to read that most of the comments here are telling you what you should do as opposed to leaving the decision up to her. I say that you let her choose as to whether or not she starts playing, of course point out exactly what she'll be getting into.

Point out the positves of WoW: A good place to unwind from reality, you can meet some long lasting friends there, it's a good lot of fun and whatever else you can think of.
At the same time, point out the negatives: Addicting gameplay, can be frustrating, long time commitment to get to the higher levels and the uncanny amount of douchebags that you'll encounter.

If she decides to get into it, feel free to guide her baby steps into Azeroth as you feel free to. I advise not giving her gold to start with, but a few 16 slot bags go a long way. Don't expect her to play the way you do, but help her along the path to becoming a good player. No ammount of noobishness can't be cured with a help from a patient and friendly teacher. :)

And let's not stereotype people please, just because some women play like spoiled brats in this game doesn't mean we all do. I've introduced this game to my Brother and a number of male friends of mine. I've been the one to teach them how to play and, I have to say, a couple of them are pretty hopeless lol.

Countdown to Wrath Giveaway: Day 3 - BlizzCon Polar Bear Mount {WoW}

Nov 10th 2008 7:19AM Hehe, I think my Shammy would look great riding one of these around :)

Ask a Beta Tester: More on leveling, Alliance lore, and starting zone RP {WoW}

Oct 19th 2008 5:17AM Actually, there's a good reason that the Tauren cat form has a mane, even for females. If you look at the back of your Female Tauren's neck, you'll see that she too has a mane. It looks a bit wierd from our perspective due to real female lions not having one, but we have to remember it's a shape-shifting Tauren, not a real lion...

... Don't take this as me trying to defend the Tauren Kitty form, that thing sucks ass and deserves to be taken away and beaten with a stick. I like the idea around what the tauren catform is. A lion with gouging horns is a cool thing. But the model is of such poor quality that I just want to cry out in anguish whenever I see it and I bet a lot of other moo droods agree with me.

Hallow's End 2008 guide (updated) {WoW}

Oct 18th 2008 5:37PM Hehe, good to hear my group wasn't the only one who had Squashing luck.

I ran twice, once with my Reso Shammy and once with my Hunter (I had my Gorilla tank XD ). Got about 23 summons and the squashling dropped 4 times total. The helm only dropped once, no sign of the Horseman's mount though.

I wonder if the drop rate was increased or if we were just REALLY lucky? I sorta hope for the former, makes it a lot easier to get that achievement.
