Dec 19th 2008 5:43PM Since we are QQ'ing about this openly... yes I am sometimes offended by people out there. I have told people not to cuss because younger people were in-group playing.
I have on occasion taken the side of a prude on the Trade/Local channels and when asked, "Why do you care if we cuss? What's it doing to you?" to which I respond, "Its because it is unnecessary." It is absolutely unnecessary; plain and simple. There is no need to deevolve and express yourself with vulgarity. Period. Let alone share it with the world.
Dec 18th 2008 7:02PM It is server-dependent. On my server, we have no shortage of healers. Tanks are sorely in supply. Your mileage may vary.
Dec 18th 2008 6:48PM I would have to agree with you. We have about the same, if not more, of a shortage of tanks on Perenolde due to DK's wanting to DPS. I, as a resto druid, have found it very difficult to get into a group as they already have a healer, just not a tank. And LFM is way more often than not looking for a tank.
Dec 9th 2008 9:02PM One other thought, why not make the raids hard in the beginning and nerf them as time goes along. This would appease both playstyles and keep the experience rewarding, if you ask me.
Dec 9th 2008 8:58PM Blizz has gone out of their way to make it clear that they want their content available to the masses, "not just the 5% of hardcore raiders." They have stated in articles that they are willing to sacrifice the 5% of hardcores to get the other 95% (albeit all the new people who sign up) access to this content. I would be surprised if they do make it much harder.
However, my thoughts on this are, why not make the 25-man raids harder and leave the gear they drop the same. I hear the arguments that the difficulty-to-reward ratio would make people not want to do it. I disagree. If there was gear that was 10% better than the 10-man gear, it's worth it.
I am no hardcore raider (been to Karazhan many times, but Gruul's a couple times, no Mag) but there is something to be said about seeing people in awesome gear and striving for it. If everyone has the same awesome gear on, then its kind of a turn off, if you ask me. It dilutes the experience.
Dec 5th 2008 7:10PM I had a strange experience much like that two nights ago. I was on my dwarven DK going from SW to VK in Northrend. As the boat was floating to the docks in VK, my client disconnected for no reason whatsoever. I logged back in and found myself in the water a little ways away from VK. I walked into the town and found no NPCs or players were around. I couldn't mount either. Kept saying I couldnt' mount here. So I decided I was glitchy and relogged again. When I logged back in, I was standing fully rez'd in the Deathknell cemetary. Luckily I was high enough lvl not to aggro anyone, but I was fuming making my way to Southshore.
Nov 25th 2008 8:16PM I agree with Shadari. The morally grey aspect of the game makes you think, adding another level to the game.
In the XP, you are faced with the extermination of all that lives. When faced with this realization, with a formidable foe as Arthas and his Scourge, and with the knowledge we are speaking of a medievalistic setting we shouldn't be shocked by torture. Trying to apply our real world moral/ethics into this game with that type of setting seems a little ridiculous.
Nov 25th 2008 8:00PM You don't have to finish the quests if you don't want to. I, for one refused to do the DEHTA quests because I think the promotion of PETA is laughable and stupid. I love animals, but meat is not murder. To each; his own.
Also, what about the quest where a Paladin is using the Light to mercilously torture a city mayor turned Scourge. Are we going to call foul on a poor innocent Scourge begin burned alive by light?
