Possible addon business models {WoW}

Mar 25th 2009 11:04AM I would disagree with the idea that these addons don't give players an advantage. In PVE terms, most addons reduce the amount of time and effort needed to do things that you could otherwise do manually (finding quest objectives, comparing AH prices, looking up boss drops, etc.). Given that you can pretty much accomplish anything in PVE given enough time, I can see addons giving players an advantage over others.

In terms of PVP, isn't it much easier to heal party members with a modded UI than without? That's a glaring advantage.

Vista sidebar widget available for WoW players {WoW}

Mar 24th 2009 11:33AM Isn't there another gadget for realm status that has been around for a couple years? It looked like a big orb inside an elite picture frame.

Phat Loot Phriday: Gemmed Wand of the Nerubians {WoW}

Mar 21st 2009 10:48AM This was my first lvl 213 item. Had no idea it was so badass until after I won the roll and compared it to other wands... hands down this thing is the best right now.

You may be a Love Fool after all {WoW}

Feb 26th 2009 12:10PM Well James, it's clearly wasn't impossible for people to get the achievement, as you can probably tell by the number of people running around Dalaran with "the Love Fool" after their names.

What gets me is the "I didn't get it so it must not be fair" attitude. It clearly had little (if nothing) to do with skill, but that doesn't mean you're entitled to it just because you were there.

I am one of the people that got the Hallowed achievement without collecting all the masks, and I'd gladly give that back to get people to shut up about this event. Was it easy to get all the masks at Hallow's End? No. Was it possible? Yes. I didn't get all of them and I was fine with not having the achievement.

What fun is it to get all of these achievements on the first try? It's not like that was your one and only chance. These achievements don't affect your ability to raid or farm or whatever you choose to do with your time in-game. They're window dressing. And I'm fine with luck being involved in collecting window dressing.

You may be a Love Fool after all {WoW}

Feb 25th 2009 6:57PM This is stupid. The drop rate of the bags was buffed in plenty of time for people to get the achievement. I got it two days ahead of time.

The people who didn't get the achievement at the time should just be out of luck.

WoW still on store shelves in Australia {WoW}

Feb 6th 2009 10:36AM Holy Grammar Trainwreck, Batman!

The Air Stands Still bugged for Shadow Priests? {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2009 8:32AM I haven't spec'ed anything but Shadow since lvl 40. Did this quest a few weeks ago and was not killed by any of the death knights. However, on the first of my two attempts, the death knight did not show up, leaving me to fend for myself.

Servers still down for emergency maintenance this morning [UPDATED] {WoW}


The Overachiever: Completing I've Toured the Fjord {WoW}

Jan 8th 2009 10:31AM Maybe Carbonite is just asking for donations... I have never paid for it or been asked to pay for it through WowMatrix.

The Overachiever: Completing I've Toured the Fjord {WoW}

Jan 8th 2009 10:24AM I've seen a lot of references to a low-level quest tracker but I don't know how to turn it on. Is it in the main interface options? I have Carbonite also... maybe I'm just overlooking it, but I can't find it.
