Mine of WorldCraft blockifies Azeroth {WoW}

Sep 29th 2011 1:16PM Great work. I had to stop the film every few seconds to make sure I didn't miss anything. The text was hilarious throughout.

I caught myself several times trying to move the camera and such like I was really playing WOW. :)

Blizzard clarifies transmogrification rules {WoW}

Sep 20th 2011 7:40AM EDIT - Not to mention it would require Blizzard allowing folks to transmog art from armor types they cannot equip. On second thought, it is starting to sound like switching the head slot to cloth only may actually be less involved.

Blizzard clarifies transmogrification rules {WoW}

Sep 20th 2011 7:38AM That would be an interesting fix to the current "no clothies get eye patches/blindfolds" state of affairs.

It sounds like your option could be solved by making the head slot a permanently cloth slot like they did with back slots a while back. That is a bit radical of a move but one Blizzard could certainly consider.

Perhaps as an alternative Blizzard could simply allow the head slot to transmog art from any armor type, but again that would take them removing the same-armor to same-armor restriction away, at least for that slot...

For now it looks like clothies just never take eye damage. :)

Sep 19th 2011 10:39PM And that means that clothies NEVER get to wear an eye patch...

Something I have spoken on before. :(

The Queue: Hold it! {WoW}

Sep 17th 2011 10:28PM Try being a female gnome wearing one those fat belts.

I am SO looking forward to transmogrification.

WoW Moviewatch: One More Soul {WoW}

Sep 7th 2011 3:10PM This inspired me to roll a an undead on my "new" server to experience the Cataclysm changes.

I liked the video a lot and felt it was well done, but one small detail kept distracting me. The way the top of Sylvannus' lips were pulled excessively upward in two peaks like a capital "M" when doing mouthing animations seemed unnatural. A small detail to be sure, but one my eyes kept getting hung up on.

I felt the expression in the human male's eyes as he was stabbed lying on the ground was excellently done. The best animation in the piece in my opinion.

Gold Capped: Dealing with Neutral Auction House sniping {WoW}

Aug 19th 2011 10:08AM My spouse and I do Neutral AH transfers together, usually in the early morning off hours. We count down out loud so we post and buy almost simultaneously. Doing this we have yet to be sniped.

The only time I was ever burned was way back when I was just starting out. I found an item on the Horde side that my spouse's toon on Alliance had been wanting for a long time but had just not been up for sale. Wanting it to be a surprise I tried the transfer without her. Not having much money available on Alliance side, I posted it cheap. In the time it took to post and run to the next desk, someone in Tannaris sniped it. I whispered them explaining the situation, even offered them gold for their trouble, but to no avail. I even traveled to the Tannaris AH. There I found the toon huddled on the ground in the corner hidden behind the auctioneer. He would not respond no matter what I did.

In the end my spouse never did get the present. It was months before I made enough gold to try finding the item again. As a fairly new player it was a disappointing experience.

Addon Spotlight: Best. Addons. Ever. -- The Bestening {WoW}

Aug 18th 2011 5:00PM Changes to sounds, either through editing the MPQ files directly or through addons, only affects you. Each computer plays its own sounds to the people playing on them.

I am sensitive to high frequency sounds but my favorite flying mount is a flying carpet. It has some fabric sweeps and high pitched keening sounds that bothered me so I replaced those files with blank ones. Now my carpet is silent, and everyone elses' carpets are silent to me as well.

However, other players hear my carpet sounds normally since their computer sound files have not been edited.


(Note: Editing your sound files is NOT against the EULA and has been discussed here several times before.)

Official Transmogrification preview {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 1:11PM I wonder if there will be anything that can be done about quest reward items that have since been vendored/disenchanted because of a lack of bank space. There is stuff I would love to use this service for, but has been gone from my inventory for a long time with no way to get replacements.

It sounds like you have to still have the item on you to make this work. Nice, but not for stuff that is gone forever and cannot be replaced.

Phat Loot Phriday: Mirrored Boots {WoW}

Aug 6th 2011 8:25AM I wonder what happens if you take these boots to Dalaran and get them shined? If the shoeshine mages in Dal can make a barefoot troll's toes get a sparkly graphic in game, shining these boots might burn just out my video card... :)
