I never asked to be allowed to pick any name I want; I actually agree with the lore against that...however, how would being able to "re-randomize" the name affect that? I would do a long grinding quest chain not to be stuck with "Blagshril". Someting generic or even foolish is fine, but to hear the deep, booming voice, then to see that name and think of a screeching sound like a cat getting sick, it just ruins the whole character for me...I dont play it at all now, other than using it as a bag factory to make money.
I just wanted a demonology warlock, and now I can't stand it. Would this really be such a game-changer? Again, NO to "name your felguard Bambi", but YES to being able to get a new, random demon, even if its a one time shot. Literally NOTHING could be worse than "Blagshril"...I dare you, just say the name, let it roll off your tongue, and see if you have no mercy for me...
Mar 15th 2010 9:09PM I just wish that they would let warlocks "resummon" a demon (or whatever other rationalization they need) to allow us to change the names. I am not asking to be able to choose the names, just re-randomize them.
Why? My warlock is permanently stuck at 66, I just don't care to play her. I picked an orc for the racial damage bonus, picked demonlogy spec, loved every demon name up till my Felguard.
I switched her to destruction, to ignore the problem, but its just not the same, and now I play a warrior. Sigh.
Blizz, please just let us re-randomize the names, a "banish and resummon" scroll/mission chain, or some such thing. Hunters get a rename scroll, no actual reason they couldnt let us do it, and I might be able to stomach playing my poor, neglected 'lock, no longer saddled with a felguard named after the sound dying bagpipes make.

What a pathetic rationalization for being a jerk. It's selfish people like you who feel some sort of twisted entitlement because they "know better" (ie. are unwilling to respect an honest roll, and wish to gain an unfair advantage), that are the main reason that finally Blizz is restoring the balance by not giving people an option.
Feb 27th 2010 6:43PM Or perhaps the ancient war between the Trolls and Elves?
On that note, I wonder if Blizz has ever considered a CoT battleground? Trolls and Elves would work, of course, but so would many campaigns from the Warcraft games, and so on. Just a weird idea I came up with...

I find it so amusing how hard it is for these "UBAR-L33T" types who can only feel a sense of accomplishment when a huge majority of other players are arbitrarily denied something. It reminds me somehow of fundamentalists who can only enjoy heaven if they know people are also roasting in hell.
Why is it such a big issue to wait and see how people do? Instead of insta-kicking the moment you decide to eye everyone's gear and just deciding they arent "worthy", give them a chance, they may surprise you. The other day my (newly) 80 elemental shammy, who has a few random epics, was almost denied access to a VoA 25 group based on his gearscore, due to a single whiny alt-tank. Not only didn't we wipe (and really, if you wipe due to one or two undergeared people, you have bigger issues), but I outdid BOTH the other shammies in the group for DPS, just because I gave it my all.
All we are saying is to the old-school players (I joined in 2.3, incidentally), times have changed, adapt with it, or at the very least, give people a chance and don't be so quick to judge. You can always kick the person AFTER they screw up, and you actually have justifiable cause.
Feb 20th 2010 5:48PM Agreed. (With Both) I hate basically having to roll NEED when I want to roll GREED, but there just has to be one idiot that thinks he can cheat the system...I would very much prefer the guess work and paranoia be taken out and make it a greed only item...they could also apply that to quite a few other items, like the flowers that drop during Love is in the Air, or the Bronze Drake in CoS, etc. No one, strictly speaking, NEEDS those, its a perk. If you really "need" a Frozen Orb, its called the auction house.

You assume this WHY? It seems fairly obvious at this time that the Alliance and Horde will each be getting TWO new cities...Gilneas and (Upper?) Gnomeregan, and the Horde will get the Echo Isles and whatever the Goblin City in Azshara will be called.
Feb 20th 2010 8:06AM Perhaps Blizz should finally do the completely logical and obvious thing and make Frozen Orbs a "Greed Only" item....no one could take advantage, and people wouldnt have to be paranoid about how the roll goes.

So, how is anyone supposed to actually LEARN how to play their class if they have no chance to actually PLAY it, on a gradual basis, accumulating new abilies as they go?
Just a thought...

So, kind of like that all too popular neologism, "Irregardless"? How about "Affect" and "Effect"? "Allusion" vs "Illusion", anyone? Or my personal favorite, using "Ignorant" to describe someone as beeing "rude" rather than "uninformed"?
Just because people have no idea what words mean anymore due to "Teh Internetz" doen't mean that those meanings have actually changed, just that people are "ignorant".
Anyways, I think I am gonna go play on my ROUGE. (She likes to steal make-up)
