Sep 29th 2010 7:44PM My main is a healer, and I can't tell you how much I've been appreciating these posts on dps changes. The healer community has been bracing itself for a long while now in anticipation of running with dps that haven't gotten the memo that heroics are no longer easy. Thank you for helping to get the word out and pointing out what dps can do to help make the pulls a little easier. My hat's off to you, Mr. Van Allen.
P.S. Any Shadow Priest I see using PW:Shield becomes number three on my heal priority list after myself and the tank! Your healers always remember who's got their backs.
Nov 20th 2009 8:35PM This kind of thing makes me angry, even if "One Big Liar" didn't go into this fully intending to decive. These kinds of stunts make it even harder for women to be taken seriously in an environment that can already be hostile to us.
I just really started raiding this xpac, and until recently I've been jobless due to a layoff and haven't had the expandable funds to buy a microphone. I've run into my fair share of "friends" and guildmates that have talked behind my back and inisted I must be lying about my sex because I don't own a microphone. Obviously not using a mic means I'm really a guy and am am afraid of being exposed, in their minds. Of course, if people start believing this, they start to doubt my character as a person and probably wonder why I'd front as a woman when I'm really not.
Being called a liar over something as simple as gender is really annoying. I've just stopped bothering to tell guildmates I'm a girl, and deal with being called "dude" and referred to as "he/him" because I don't need the grief and lies spread about me.
Oct 21st 2009 1:46PM People keep complaining about the cost of in-game items, but they fail to see the point. Blizzard WANTS these items to be expensive so that everyone isn't running around with 50K+ gold. The more people drowning in gold, the more inflated the economy gets and new/poor players can't afford anything.
Just because vanity items are expensive (yes, they are luxury items, you don't need them to be able to play) doesn't mean you get to run out and buy gold. Blizzard also expects you to be an adult about it and take the time to raise your own gold if you really want something bad enough. Just because something is hard to get doesn't mean it's ok to cheat for the sake of convenience.
Besides, it's not hard to make gold in-game, it just takes patience.
Sep 11th 2009 8:35PM There's a story in Warcraft Legends involving the Faire, and it's so dark that it borders on a horror story. I was shocked at the ending, I absolutely did not see it coming.
So yes, after reading that I would definitely have to agree with you that there's something not quite right about the people that run the Faire. Hopefully the comic points to Blizzard not forgetting that either, as it was published this year, I believe.
Sep 7th 2009 8:16AM Wow, I never noticed that. Looks like they were fully expecting all the QQing about TotC being too easy.
Anyway, I definitely had to stop and stare when I encountered Siouxsie the Banshee for the first time. I was aware Blizz placed pop culture references in-game, but I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised to see a nod to old school goth rock.
Jul 27th 2009 10:47PM There's room for both kinds of charities, Dboy.
I would imagine this charity is for animals because Brajana runs a hunter website, it only makes sense. Animals are, in many ways, even more helpless and defenseless then people in need. They have zero control over bettering their situation, much like a child. Not that contributing to human based charities isn't a wonderful thing, it is, but animals need our help to.
Anyway, if we're talking about immorality, I find it a bit immoral to try and guilt people who are donating to a good cause.
Jun 5th 2009 1:31AM Thank you for posting this.
I recently saw someone on my server offering to trade one of these mounts for 5,000g. A very tempting offer at first glance, but I found it strange they asked for such a small in-game amount when they could sell it for a grand on Ebay.
Needless to say, I didn't message them about it (thank God), but I was definitely wondering what was going on. Unfortunately I think they managed to snag someone immediatey, because I didn't see them advertise it again.
It's upsetting how clever these keylogger/scammers are getting.
Dec 3rd 2008 6:41PM Haha, oh man. Believe me, this information wasn't all that secretive to begin with. All I did was look up a list of flying mounts on WoWWikki to see what I might be interested in, and I found out about this guy.
So much QQing over nothing. You didn't think the massive WoW population would find out eventually?
Nov 13th 2008 8:30AM I'm up because I had to work all night at the post office, probably in the process of getting some *other* gamer their copy of WoW.
Definitely bedtime for me now.
Nov 10th 2008 8:17AM I don't know how they could *not* do something. They know everyone is expecting it. And just because there's not a lot of time left doesn't necessarily mean much. If they did do something huge (like destroying major cities) they probably wouldn't want the cities to be out of commission for days. That would be annoying. They'd probably set it a day or two before the expansion, enough time for everyone to witness it, but close enough to the expansion so that something could be done about it.
