3 things that will become more expensive in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 1:33AM @slythwolf Actually the limit is about 20 different characters that are NOT on your account, per 1-2 hours. You can send any number of mails to your own characters, with no limit that I have encountered. And I've loaded up my own mailboxes before.

The Queue: Pandaria is open on the beta {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 5:55PM It's like walking into a brand new shopping mall, where you can enter certain areas but other areas are closed off because there aren't businesses to occupy them. You'll say, "Hey, the mall is open now!" You don't likely say, "Hey, a portion of the mall is open!" unless you get in a discussion about the mall and start talking details. It's called synecdoche, where a whole thing is understood to mean some collective number of parts of that whole. :)

Mar 29th 2012 5:49PM Yay, I just got access to the beta! I just noticed in the Terms (yes, I really read them) that part of the agreement says that you acknowledge you're an adult in the country of your residence. Interesting. No child testers?

Encrypted Text: The lazy combat build, part 2 {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 1:04AM Any recommendations on an addon that helps you monitor Slice n Dice?

Mar 27th 2012 7:59PM I wonder if Blizzard would consider, or is considering, since they're taking away Have Group Will Travel, making a warlock TV so that once it's created, anyone in the party or raid can click on the TV and do a mass summon. You'd still have your one class that can summon, but you wouldn't have to individually summon 8, 23, or 38 people individually.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Toolkits and themes {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 6:09PM I love playing warrior, but one thing that has always seemed terribly out of balance to me is the lack of self healing. Enraged Regeneration and Victory Rush went a long way to addressing this, but it's still very very low compared to the abilities of paladins and death knights. I don't notice it as much in pve, but it's painfully obvious in pvp and when soloing. I don't like how little I can heal myself, and if I didn't otherwise enjoy the warrior playstyle, I probably would have jumped to paladin or DK.

I think Blizzard could easily implement a self-healing shout. Not one that increases your health pool, but actually restores a portion of your health, similar to a paladin's Word of Glory or a DK's Death Strike. It would fit with the warrior playstyle and theme, would make soloing content MUCH easier (or even possible), and would make 1v1 against...well, any class that can heal itself...much more viable.

Breakfast Topic: Are sexy transmog sets OK in your raid group? {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 8:49AM The only time the look of someone's gear has been an issue for me happened to be right after transmogging came out. I was doing one of the new heroics with a guy in my guild who plays a female character and had mogged a very revealing outfit for her. I thought it was his RP gear, so after the first pull I commented jokingly that he'd forgotten to put on his real gear. That's of course when I was reminded that mogging was available.

Side note, it's a good thing some items aren't moggable. I often don't like how helms look on my warrior so I hide it (with Outfitter). One time I tanked Firelands for an entire evening wearing my chef's hat (was running late and had whipped up a bunch of fortune cookies for everyone), but of course it was hidden. If I could mog a real helm to look like it, it would be funny-looking/awesome but not a good thing if I mixed my hats up.

In reply to Lipstick on page 4:

The beauty of a guild vault is, without leveling the guild at all, you have 98 slots per tab, 6 tabs, for about 5000 gold I think it is all told. That's 588 slots, 588 stacks of anything you want, and you can organize it. A "guild" can exist as very expensive personal storage space, if you so desire. Or, you can max out all your bag slots with 26 slot bags, and have 286 slots (plus your 16 slot backpack). Or get profession bags, for 396 slots plus backpack. That's way more than a lot of people need or can use. If you need even MORE storage space, you can use your mailbox, 50 mails at a time, 12 attachments per mail (600), and that's what you can actually see at once. I don't know of an actual limit to the number of mails you can have in a mailbox. So without a personal guild vault (that is, prior to Cataclysm), people could just bounce mail between 2 alts every 59 days without it getting deleted.

So really, what a personal guild vault gets you is an extra 588+ slots of storage with some basic organizing and searching, as well as a place to stash gold you don't want to keep on your character. It makes people happy, and it's a decent gold sink.

Keep in mind that the people that have guild vaults for their personal use tend to be the ones that keep the economy on the server humming along, buying and selling in bulk, generally keeping supplies steady and prices relatively low on many common items.

The people you should be angry at are the bots and hackers, the ones that exploit the game environment to make raw materials from nothing, duping items. By doing this and mass-listing their duped/hacked materials (for example elementium ore, queen's garnets, essences of destruction), they crash the economy. Plus, the gold they make from their sales is sold for real money, part of the same real-life economy that criminals have their hands in, stealing accounts, with links to organized crime, as well as forced labor (for example, Chinese hard labor prisoners being put to work farming instead of sleeping, as we read a few months ago).

People with their own vaults are good, not bad. :)
