May 26th 2009 10:21AM As to who is right, and who is wrong, I had say both of them are. All Blizzard had to do was to roll the involved characters back to prior to their infraction, so no achievements were "made" in that sense. Instead, they chose to ban him for infraction, which, since it's their game, they do have the final say anyways.
As for Karatechop, he's not stupid. Sure, Blizzard "gave" him the item. Common sense would have told him within 100 charges, anything that can be achieved would have been achieved really - and then some. When he first tried the item and realised how OP it is, surely it would have alerted him to how odd it is? and then tricking people into raids like that......
yes it's fun and funny - which is yet another indication of how wrong he knew the weapon seems.
all in all, I say, Blizzard lost it yes - but Karatechop isn't all that innocent either.
May 17th 2009 8:00PM Levelling to 80 is relative to what you can do, your jobs, your life and your experience in mmorpgs, the type of server you are on etc. I levelled myself to 80 in 2 months, and that is slow by the standards of many friends i know. yet my other friend took a grand long 2 years to hit even 70. :D
May 13th 2009 5:21PM I would say the Mechano-Hog is my favourite of all time, if only because it reminds me of a RL Harley and I love Harleys!
Jan 14th 2009 5:25AM Firstly, you are not too far from wrong. People shouldn't be jumping into heroics undergeared. I have had a huntard, who rolled on an epic druid staff because it was obviously better than his green axe, and who was walking into heroics with no trinkets.
that all said and done, I dare say you did start with one of the hardest heroics. Heroic Violet Hold is a beautiful starting heroic where I did heal through somewhat "undergeared", nexus isn't too bad, albeit the last boss would need some healing attention, and Utgarde Keep is good too..
Jun 17th 2008 8:40AM 1) didn't have any talents in my talent tree because i didn't know there was such a thing called talent tree, until i was like 30-40.
2) didn't know there was such a thing as fall damage, and fell from top of auchindoun so i can get to meeting stone.
3) didn't know about level aggro, insisted on a friend porting me to shatt, and then he port me to barrier hills to get mopped by ogres at 28.
4) decided to flash heal instead of normal heal, because it took so long and gets interrupted so easily... only to get wiped because i had not enough mana.
5) DYING... so i can get instant port to town because i sold my hearthstone and didn't know i can get it back.
May 28th 2008 9:59AM i used to belong to a large clan/alliance in Lineage 2, and the way raid bosses work, it's similar to EQ. The problem was, the larger the clan/core raid group was, the harder it was for the clan leader to even notice anyone's doing their job. undeserving people gets loot, people who worked hard and play their class great went unnoticed.
Of course, there was terrible leadership, but you can't deny the size of it didn't help. The raid bosses were hard, but at the end of the day didn't employ much more intelligence than simple tanking and spanking.
WoW's raid bosses are different in that aspect. it required at least some form of team work and ability to think quick on your feet. Relying on strategies may not be easy at times, thus this employs some leadership qualities...
and while i am not that interested in the rankings of my guild's progression versus the thousands of guilds out there, i am definitely much more aware when i am raiding - because i am required to.
