Know Your Lore: The dark mysteries of the Darkmoon Faire {WoW}

Dec 11th 2011 10:08PM Actually the one person at the faire that I was wondering about was Aimee the baked goods vendor. Why is she there, did she have problems making ends meet after the heroes all left Dalaran, did something happen to her that we don't know about. I mean presumably she was making a living before we got there so what happened?

The Queue: Fear and Vengeance in Las Ravenholdt {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 1:16PM Ok I have a question, if Ysera has been *spoilered* what happens to the druids now?

Ysera was the keeper of the emerald dream, druids had a connection to the dream the way shaman have to the elements, if she's not there is the dream going to go to pot? Will we see more flame kitty druids?

WRUP: That totally safe theme park we're working on {WoW}

Jul 24th 2011 1:55PM There would have to be a naxx section with ooze frogger, and a certain slime infested dance studio.

Breakfast Topic: The perfect item {WoW}

Jun 13th 2011 12:05PM I love that shield, if I have an Orc character that is capable of wearing a shield and doesn't have at least the level 20 version in its inventory then something is wrong with the world. Seriously that should be the orc starting shield as far as I'm concerned.

As for that perfect item, it was getting my orc shaman the Guardian of Cenarius title and the Cenarion Expedition tabard. I wanted to have those so bad so that it looked like my shaman was sorry about all the destruction his people had done to Kalimdor.

Two Bosses Enter: Forgemaster Throngus vs. Mograine and Whitemane {WoW}

May 31st 2011 9:34AM @aaronmhayes

yes but we are assuming that Throngus is fighting smart which means that if they did try to LoS him to heal then that would be an opportunity for him to attack, don't forget Whitemane only has Heal which is a three second cast, so if they are taking enough damage that they need to fall back to LoS then she won't be able to start casting until she stands still. Which would either leave Mograine out of LoS to heal if he tries to stall Throngus or she would be stuck casting her heal on him leaving her vulnerable. Where as Throngus can attack with his swords well moving which as we know with his swords you don't want to be caught on the receiving end and be waiting on heals.

But your right provided Whitemane can target the heads individually then we could assume that Throngus could start punching himself, provided of course that Dominate mind doesn't break on ticks or damage as he is hurting himself by hurting himself.

Breakfast Topic: Do you enjoy soloing instances and raids? {WoW}

May 31st 2011 9:21AM I do and I don't like solo raiding. The big reason of course being the you must have a raid group to enter this instance, and of course the raid lock out. I personally feel that if you as a nominally geared character at max level can solo it it should be on a one day timer, I can farm Anzu once a day and he has as much of a chance to drop the reins as Attumen has of dropping them so why should I have to wait a week and then make a raid group to do it (and then at least until 4.2 have to have a key for it) they both die in like two minutes (stupid brood of Anzu really slows that fight down).

But other then those considerations, I love it especially when you get things where your seriously not paying attention and you suddenly have Geddon, Garr, and an ancient core hound at the same time and now you have to actually pay some attention or you get blowed up.

Two Bosses Enter: Forgemaster Throngus vs. Mograine and Whitemane {WoW}

May 31st 2011 4:33AM Well I'm going to suspect that the duo from the scarlet monestary are going to win this, I'm voting for the forge master.

Unlike Ghostwhowalks I'm thinking the shield is going to be his biggest advantage.
Well it is a cowardly move we are assuming that he has full access to his abilities which means that he could just shield wall the entire time.

First off he is a big guy and a master smith he can stand a few blows and has the stamina to outlast anything mograine can dish out if he keeps his shield up, additionally he has that fire blast that his shield belches. So he takes a few blows well he sizes up his foes then using his two swords he keeps the pair in front of him and falls back to a corner of the arena some place where he can force the crusaders to come at him only from the front and he waits them out keeping them off balance with fire blasts. The crusaders on the other hand can't afford to ignore him so they have to come to him well trying to avoid flaming arrows from Throngus' twilight archers which they can't reach at all.

Mograine and Whitemane's stun abilities a going to be of limited use on Throngus as he has two heads Deep sleep is going to be useless unless Whitemane wants to rez Mograine as it breaks on damage meaning as soon as they hit him. If they do sleep him they have to get inside his shield to hurt him and with a guy a strong as the forgemaster grappling is not an option you need to keep some distance or he could break you in a squeeze. Hammer of Justice and Dominate Mind are going to be of limited use as unlike most of Whitemane's victims Throngus has two heads and subsequently two minds that control the body (or at least portions of it) as long as one of the heads is free and can hold the shield up he can keep them off the pair will have to deal with both heads at the same time to stun him. If Dominate Mind is like the player mind control then Whitemane can't cast heals well she is doing it which would leave the pair vulnerable.

For Throngus to win what he needs to do is play the waiting game, keep his back to a corner and as soon as Whitemane tries to dominate his mind the other head needs to drop the guard and just wail on Mograine till he bubbles/dies or forces Whitemane to start healing again. As soon as that happens he pulls the shield back up again or if Mograine is bubbled he takes out Whitemane as with the bubble up Mograine is going to be too slow to damage Throngus enough before he takes out Whitemane as without armour she won't be able to take more then a hit or two with the mace. If he did take out Mograine before Whitemane drops out of dominate mind to heal then the Inquisitor still needs time to cast that spell which she won't have if Throngus is awake and may not get if he is asleep as the archers will force her to keep moving which could prove to much of a distraction even with her shield to allow her to cast the spell. If Mograine does try to lay on hands on Whitemane, the forgemaster just falls back and waits for a new opening.

I'm not saying that Throngus will win but I'd put my money on him.

Breakfast Topic: Thoughts on legendary weapons {WoW}

May 16th 2011 10:30PM I would like to a fist weapon legendary, something like Kargarth Bladefists' bladefist or Mannoroth's bladefists. Yes I know they are in game as a heroic drop and scenery but those are fairly identifiable.

What I really want to see though is more of the "Casual Legendaries" not actual orange items but more Rok'delar, Benediction, Quel'serrar, Quel'delar type weapons stuff that requires a quest line maybe even ones that are as long a the scepter of the shifting sands was but ones that you can do without needing to have a raid group. "I need 100 twilight drake souls" LFG heroic grim batol 50 times. The difference being that instead of an orange you get, a pet, a title, and a cool tier quality weapon.

All the World's a Stage: Orcs and timelines in roleplay {WoW}

May 15th 2011 8:08PM My orcs tend to span all three generations and it tends to fit with the model followed here.

My Orc warlock is from the first war generation taught the arts as a youth on draenor drank the blood of Mannoroth basically sustained by magic bag of old bones and green leather. Not really Thrall's horde but since we can't be blackrock orcs what can you do, if you are going to be an old orc you might as well be with other old orcs.

My Shaman is 40ish, peon like learned to talk to the elements after Thrall founded Durotar, probably was a grunt or peon during the second war. After the second war ended and Durotar was being founded I figure most Grunts found time to take up other roles same with peons, explore new lands build new towns, learn new skills as you learn more about your new home and allies.

My Hunter and Warrior, are just outside the third option. Children of Durotar but old enough to have taken part in the Northrend campaign maybe the Draenor campaign if the horde was still sending troops as a kind of training tour well they built up forces in the north. They aren't fond of Garrosh but aren't the fiercely loyal to Thrall that my Shaman is. They feel about Garrosh how you would feel if you visited your childhood home after some one else has started to live in it. It is familiar as the bigger things are the same the kitchen, the toilet are where they were but the tree that you had a tire swing in now has a tree house and your bedroom was painted a different colour.

Breakfast Topic: Do you wear WoW in public? {WoW}

May 1st 2011 1:13PM I wear WoW about but that is more because my denim jacket is a patch a button jacket and it has a horde logo on it. Other then that not really I have a couple WoW shirt I've been given but they tend to be worn at home or under a work shirt.
