Mar 6th 2010 3:58AM "if you go to a restaurant and the waiter treats you the way GC treats the forum goers, that waiter would be fired so fast"
Seriously? If you went to a restaurant and started acting like most forumgoers act, you'd be in the back of a cop car (or mental hospital van) so fast it'd make your head spin, facing disorderly conduct (and possibly rioting) charges, maybe even assault.
You'd never even see the waiter because the moment the host/ess turned to get the menu you'd already be shouting and threatening her/him.
Mar 6th 2010 3:53AM I totally agree. Most people that get all up in arms about GC seem to have had their arrogant e-peens Bobbitted by some remark or other of his. Now if only we could remove the "e-" part of that so the smug little bastards couldn't pollute the gene pool further...
Mar 5th 2010 8:12AM I have a few:
I won't do arena. Ever. I'm not very good at PvP to begin with, but arena just holds no appeals to me, while BGs do (I'm the one that's actually sitting and defending places instead of jsut going and randomly killing people - the objectives make it for me).
I won't gank lowbies, provided they aren't asses. If I run across a flagged lowbie and they /spit at me for no reason or something, well, that's different.
I won't ever (knowingly) kill cats. I'll kill the other critters sometimes, but never cats. Gotta love teh kittehs.
I wouldn't (back when I was Horde, before faction changing) participate in kills of Tyrande or Velen. The other city leaders I'd go for every now and then, but I flat out refused to hurt Tyrande or Velen.
I won't ever download Gearscore. I'm not violently, frothing-at-the-mouth raging at it - I simply think it's useless, so no matter how many people get it and use it like some sort of PuG bible, I refuse to touch it.
I won't ever ditch a heroic just because I don't like the one it gives me. If the rest of the group doesn't want to do it and everyone disbands, that's fine, but I won't just leave.
I won't ever initiate a votekick because of low DPS. I'll only go along with a votekick for low DPS if its -severely- low and keeping the group from advancing (somehow...maybe all the DPS is bad in the Lich King event in H-HoR or something).
Hmm...there are probably more, but it's late, I'm tired, and that's all I can think of at the moment.
Mar 1st 2010 4:40PM My solution is to just loot/skin/etc. as I go, and if the tank goes nuts pulling too much and gets killed...well maybe they shoulda been paying attention to where the healer was, hmm?
Feb 22nd 2010 8:25PM Shadowmeld may not be great in arena, but it can be very useful in BGs (stealth to defend points...sure, you can't move with it, but you can charge out of it, for instance).
Feb 2nd 2010 11:03PM Y'know, if it weren't for his kidnapping, torture, rape, and brainwashing of Keristrasza (poor Keristrasza ;_;) I might feel bad about killing him.
As it stands, I want to resurrect him, kill him again slowly, and dance on his grave.
Feb 1st 2010 8:20AM It may seem odd, but all of the cats from Darnassus. For me, they trump any of the fliers, any of the rare drops, and of the achievement mounts...I just love riding those cats around. ^_^
And I really, really want a spectral tiger for my DK. Because a DK on a ghost tiger is just too awesome for words.
Jan 30th 2010 9:10AM Arrogant attitude? Sorry, I don't see it that way. Yeah, there are a lot of arrogant tanks out there, and the speed demon types annoy me (so I make sure to go fast, but not ridiculously fast, when I'm tanking), but this is not what makes them arrogant.
DPS's job is to kill the mobs, but if they can't understand a kill order or to wait for a GCD or two so the tank can build some aggro, then they can try their hand at tanking it themselves. And if they decide that it's their job to be pulling...well, they can try AoE tanking for themselves, too. Hopefully without heals.
Jan 29th 2010 8:52AM No, he was definitely in the wrong. He was a jackass then, he's a jackass now - he liked to indiscriminately murder innocent people and turn on his friends then, he does now too.
And even if you discount his attitude when slaughtering the townsfolk, at BEST he's a total idiot. I mean, seriously...he's got a force of paladins there, Uther's a paladin, Jaina has some crazy timestop-stasis magic...why NOT quarantine the city and watch carefully to see if there's anyone that can be saved.
And to the people saying all those people were going to die anyway, who knows? Maybe some of them would ahve been immune. Maybe they wouldn't have been infected at all. But saying it's ok to kill them because they're gonna die anyway means it's ok to kill anything that's not a night elf (pre-Nordrassil explosion) or draenei at any time for any reason.
Jan 27th 2010 1:51AM Silver Hand is having these problems too. I hope they get to us soon...
