Breakfast Topic: Do you do RPish things on a non-RP realm? {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2011 8:23AM Also, I usually don't use the word "usually" so many times in sentences.

Breakfast Topic: Do you do RPish things on a non-RP realm? {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2011 8:20AM Occasionally, though they're usually of a somewhat silly nature. It's usually some ridiculous spectacle in the main square in Orgrimmar, I can usually squeeze a few chuckles.

^This was me.

Breakfast Topic: The kill shot and other boss downing traditions {WoW}

Feb 21st 2011 8:12AM Love that picture. I can imagine him saying

"The heavens burn!"

in Barney's voice.

Breakfast Topic: Do you actually do holiday events? {WoW}

Feb 7th 2011 8:10AM I do most of them. I don't really do the new Love is in the Air so much. It was easier to casually participate in when it was the NPCs with the perfume/cologne thing. Now it's that new farming style with the token kit and it feels a little less holiday-ish and more just like standard farming for me.

Don't get me wrong, I understand why it happened and truthfully it needed to happen. The luck of the draw factor on that meta was frustrating, RNG isn't a fun reason to miss out on something like that. This way things are a little less dependent on that luck of the draw; it's just less appealing to me than the old way since I've completed the meta.

Around Azeroth: Food, glorious food {WoW}

Dec 10th 2010 11:21AM The amount of lag that would cause makes me afraid. Deathwing might blow up the world, but you brought something far more sinister to Azeroth.

Around Azeroth: In the jailhouse now {WoW}

Dec 9th 2010 11:17AM I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
He used to steal, gamblin and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town
But I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They've got him in the jailhouse way down town
He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jaaaiiilhouse now
I told him once or twice
to stop a' playin cards and a' shootin dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Addle-lee-yo-yaaaaay-hey-heee--hoooo-heeeeeeeeee
Addle-lee-yodee-yoooo-dee-dole-deee

Gold Capped: Why deep undercutting on the auction house works {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 12:53PM "But, most people that have any significant amount of gold will not delay their buying decision based on price."

WRONG.

I don't Auction House PvP, just doesn't appeal to me, but I also don't run around with less than 30,000 gold on either of my characters. How do I keep a coin purse full without being that sort of player? I don't piss money away on crap like idiot number 54 who posts a glyph for 230 gold. And it's not for lack of spending; my motorcycle and Traveler's Tundra weren't cheap. While admittedly I'm not gold capped, I would certainly call it a "significant amount of gold."

I can say the market would move itself more if you AH jockies decided on a lower bid point, cause I can safely say the number of us that WOULD have purchased a glyph and then didn't while rolling our eyes at the presumption of the phenomenally stupid salesman far outstrips the few who will actually pay 340g for a Glyph of Armors for our mage (what they were listed at yesterday...makes Mage Armor/Molten Armor/Ice Armor last 30 more minutes. REALLY?!)

The Queue: Back to the grind {WoW}

Nov 29th 2010 12:20PM The new Thousand Needles is simply amazing.

You get a good tour de force of all the things that Cataclysm will offer in its questing. I wasn't sure at first, never caring much for the zone and then having a painful time moving around it when I went exploring in the new version, but then I chanced upon a leveling troll druid in the middle of piloting an awesome boat. I promptly WoW-headed the item and discovered that very early on, you are given your own Goblin/Gnomish River Boat to navigate the zone with (it's a permanent item, usable in Thousand Needles whenever you desire). There's a few other surprises to be seen that makes traveling the zone easier, and I'll just tell you that Blizzard can actually make questing in an underwater zone enjoyable!

As for the stories themselves, I greatly enjoyed the unfolding narrative of the zone. You begin with the majority of your time spent on the new speed barge, where the Gnomes and Goblins of the flats have taken refuge. Unfortunately, the Bilgewater Cartel and Gnomergan exiles are not getting along well at all in their cramped quarters. One of your quests will see you starting a bar fight between the two factions; tiny bottles, spilled drinks, blood and bouncers are the order of the day as you watch the greatest pay-per-view midget wrestling you've ever seen (and the best part is after completing the quest you can start the fight as often as you like). You'll resurrect a wily troll pirate captain from the dead after facing him in an incredibly unique boss fight and aid a gnome in creating delicious Silithid flavored ice cream. It's all kinds of silly and is just plain fun.

Once you've had your fun, you'll be sent to a much darker place; equally epic but in a different way. You'll aid the Tauren and some local desperate Night Elves as they take on the largest concentration of Grimtotem tribe members left on Azeroth. Many old faces and chieftens from when the world was complete are finally brought to justice, while you come into direct contact with Magatha Grimtotem, whose story is fast becoming the stuff of legends amongst the denizens of this new world. A Freehoof Brave joins you in your quest as you survey the damage to the old tauren camp, and you'll recognize the corpses of many friendly NPCs, from Flight Masters to Innkeepers. Many old questions lingering from the old version of the zone are wrapped up, particularly those concerning the mysterious wind serpent Arikara.

All in all I have seen very little about the zone, and I would hazard a guess that it's because it seems so irritating and inhospitable at first glance without a flyer. Trust me though, it was epic to the last. You start by visiting the tauren or night elf (depending on faction) in the inn of Mudsprocket in Duskwallow Marsh. They'll fly you directly into the action at the start of the zone.

Know Your Lore: The Dragonmaw clan {WoW}

Nov 25th 2010 7:39AM It makes sense when you think of who our enemy is; who better to know how to fight Deathwing?

That said, it's a little unnerving. Sort of a slap in the face to Alexstraza, and who's to say they're really on our side?

Breakfast Topic: What threads from the old WoW forums will you miss? {WoW}

Nov 17th 2010 2:58PM As a troll, I love how someone posted the epic story about how we regenerated 5 HP/S and there was nothing they could do about it...

Nothing!
