15 Minutes of Fame: I didn't know he plays WoW! {WoW}

Jun 24th 2011 12:35AM That is because they aren't really famous.

Around Azeroth: Alliance pigs! {WoW}

Jun 8th 2011 10:38AM You racist alliance pig. You cannot even tell the difference between a Tauren and an Orc. I'll have you know that, while geographically close to each other, we each have our own distinct architecture, religion, language, and culture. You cheapen all of us with your insensitive labels.

The Queue: One week until we become Portal 2 Insider {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 11:11AM Is there a good way of letting Blizzard know about bots, aside from the in game report function?

On Black Dragonflight there is one 80 shaman ALWAYS in Uldum mining.
He flies and acts just like a pathing bot.

I've come across many mining nodes covered in Tauren skeletons because he just keeps going after a node with a level 83 mob next to it. No live player is so oblivious.

I tried reporting him via the in game report function, many days later he is still doing the same thing, despite having my ticket responded to. And to my knowledge, never having logged off.

I know Blizzard doesn't reveal what actions they take, but so far all the action I can tell is that they are doing nothing. So I'm hoping there is a more reliable way to report to them.

If nothing else, I am considering offering a bounty to any alliance who can provide screenshots with combat logs showing they killed this guy.

Around Azeroth: Mister Shine, him diamond {WoW}

Mar 20th 2011 1:00PM The first thing Tak did, he wrote himself.

The second thing Tak did, he wrote the Laws.

The third thing Tak did, he wrote the World.

The fourth thing Tak did, he wrote a cave.

The fifth thing Tak did, he wrote a geode, an egg of stone.

And in the twilight of the mouth of the cave, the geode hatched, and the Brothers were born.

The first Brother walked toward the light, and stood under the open sky. Thus he became too tall. He was the first Man. He found no Laws and he was enlightened.

The second Brother walked toward the darkness, and stood under a roof of stone. Thus he achieved the correct height. He was the first Dwarf. He found the Laws Tak had written, and he was endarkened.

Then Tak looked upon the stone and it was trying to come alive, and Tak smiled, and wrote All things strive.

And for the service the stone had given, he fashioned it into the first Troll, and delighted in the life that came unbidden.

These are the things that Tak wrote!

The Queue: Defense Against the Dark Arts {WoW}

Mar 19th 2011 1:42PM I still have seen no clues in any PTR patch notes for this particular question.
In patch 4.1 or even 4.2 are there plans to fix the cooking vendor item "Imported Supplies"?
From what I understand it is supposed to cycle between cocoa beans, dry yeast, and noble hops. However, ever since implementation it is stuck on cocoa beans across all servers.
Frankly, I want my cooking achievements. Not to mention the ability to brew up some new beers.

The Queue: EARTHQUAKE makes me nervous! {WoW}

Mar 18th 2011 4:52PM Every so often I read something like this where people get extremely upset over the $15.00 a month they pay to play.

Let me make this clear.
$15.00
Fifteen Dollars.
FIF-TEEN DOLLARS.
One ten dollar bill and one five dollar bill.
150 soda cans in Michigan.

I am by no means a rich person. Even the IRS agrees with me on this point.
I have to pay for fuel, rent, a car, utilities, food, internet and a phone.
Somehow, at the end of the month I still am able to afford a measly 15 dollars a month.
If I wanted to save more money, and it would be very smart of me indeed, I would pay for larger installments of the game and bring the price down.


Patch 4.0.6 hotfixes for March 16 {WoW}

Mar 17th 2011 2:40PM No no, this guy is completely right. The Tsunami cards are entirely insensitive.
In fact, in light of this recent cataclysm in Japan Blizzard has announced the latest expansion will be renamed "World of Warcraft - Pet all the Puppies".

*UPDATE*
After a negative reaction by many players with dog allergies Blizzard has renamed the latest expansion again. The new name is now "World of Warcraft - Politically Correct".

*UPDATE UPDATE*
After requests by one Percy Collins, Blizzard is renaming their newest expansion, again. In an interview Mr. Collins stated that he was worried people might confuse him with the popular video game. Since the acronym for Politically Correct and his initials were the same.
Developers have released no new ideas for a title, but insist they are hard at work on a suitable replacement.

*....UPDATE*
After three weeks of legal battles Blizzard has settled on the new name for their game previously known as "World of Warcraft". The new title was posted on the forums by Ghost Crawler.
"Nerf Everyone to the GROUND - Except mages, they can now fly"

Tuesday Morning Post: I'm (not) on fire edition {WoW}

Mar 8th 2011 10:30AM I've been wondering this for weeks. With all the news for 4.1 and such, has there been any mention of fixing the "imported supplies" bought from the cooking vendor?

From what I understand it is supposed to cycle daily through cocoa beans, dry hops and yeast. All it keeps showing up as is cocoa beans, and trust me, it really ONLY contains cocoa beans.

Breakfast Topic: Has Deathwing caught up with you yet? {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2011 8:33AM I have seen him once, only once.
I was helping a few guildies get their Crucible of Carnage done on their alts. It was acting extremely buggy, bosses not spawning, sometimes two bosses spawning. At one point there was even a carriage hanging 40 yards up in the air.

The sky went red, I assumed this was due to the last boss of the Crucible being bugged. (I did not see the boss on the ground, but the sky was red.)

Vent went crazy.

Shouts of Deathwing! DEATHWING!
I flew out, saw him flying very far away. I tried in vain to get in front of him. No way this is going to happen. So I just pointed myself at the fire trailing behind him.
I flew in, no damage, landed on the ground and ran wildly around.

DING! Achievement earned. I did not die, or even take one point of fire damage.

Apparently it only worked for me, the rest of the night was spent consoling guild mates who were not so fortunate.

Patch 4.0.6 hotfixes for Feb. 18 {WoW}

Feb 19th 2011 2:30PM For the "If a party member remains outside of a dungeon for more than 3 minutes, they become eligible for removal, regardless of other Vote Kick restrictions."

Does disconnecting/logging of count as not being in the dungeon?

I have been in countless groups where an otherwise perfectly good group member has had to leave suddenly, and they do not leave group. Just logoff/exit game. Leaving us waiting forever for this person to disappear from our group. Most times we are forced to vote kick them out, some times we cannot vote kick as we already used ours to remove a bad member from the same run.

If this doesn't affect it, PLEASE be kind, leave group then log.
