Breakfast Topic: How do you blend marriage and playing WoW? {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 7:41PM Me and my husband have played together and apart. We started out casually, him rolling many many alts and me focusing on one character. Eventually I took a break and he leveled up a main and started raiding. I joined in and soon I was in a seperate progression guild. We have crossed paths in guilds from time to time, once even both being healers, but now he has said goodbye to WoW and it is still my primary past time. Nowadays we play games at teh same time, but that may not be the same game. He and I respect that we each need to zone out and relax after a long day of work and kids, but if either of us would rather snuggle and watch a movie then we also respect that. Communication is key, just like every other aspect of marriage.

Breakfast Topic: What pop figures deserve an Easter egg in WoW? {WoW}

Feb 13th 2011 4:45PM I appreciated reading peoples comments where they pointed out the more subtle references, which I personally prefere. Harrison Jones is just annoying. I dont like that the easter eggs have become the actual lore. The Lost reference in Scholizar is one of my favorites, that and all the many references to Nintendo that can be found in Ungoro. My memory might be false but I think in Twilight Highlands the Orc you follow to speak with the Dragonmaw leader discussed how he was wearing a redshirt.

Breakfast Topic: What made you decide to get an authenticator? {WoW}

Feb 8th 2011 3:28PM whoa whoa,

I like doing those things too, just never heard anyone complain that their pink linen shirt got vendored.

Feb 8th 2011 3:25PM Should also note that the keyfob will not start or unlock your car, I've tried.

Breakfast Topic: What made you decide to get an authenticator? {WoW}

Feb 8th 2011 8:43AM My brother got hacked a few years ago when getting your stuff back took FOREVER. It was also about the time authenticators were made available and I started to care about my character and her possessions, and also I joined a guild that actually had things of value in their bank.

I don't think every casual who is running around RPing or lvling numerous alts without any real end game playing needs one, but anyone who has put significant time and energy into a toon or two has really no excuse not to get one.

If you say its the price, your just an idiot, although I hear the shipping to Canada is a bit extreame. If you say "Blizzard will just give me back all my stuff anyway" well, thats true. But just because they will dosent mean you shouldent protect yourself and your guild from any inconvinence.

I havent heard much about the free dial-a-aunthentication code thing. Did that ever go live?

Spiritual Guidance: Priest healing tactics for Omnotron Defense System and Magmaw {WoW}

Feb 1st 2011 4:28AM I find as Disc I do better standing in with the melee to heal because sometimes the tank would go out of range of my smite heal during mangle. I also always make sure I have my pain suppression ready for it. Also, make sure you stay out a bit when he transitions out of the headphase becasue I tend to get smacked and dedz if im the closest to teh boss.

Also, I like healing the Atonement way through Omnitron as well. Popping Archangel and PI and if I have it avail, my troll racial during the Magma or Toxitron high damage phases really helps out. I find I have alot of time to smite during that encounter. Don't forget you have 20seconds to cast whatever you want before you need to cast another smite to keep up yoru stacks. Make use of Penence and G Heal as you need to.

Spiritual Guidance: Valor point and raid gear for discipline and holy priests {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 11:29AM Belt of the Blackhand is plate...silly.

The Daily Quest: Smash it with a hammer {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 11:41AM I ironically enough watched that movie with my children this morning. GET OUT OF MY MIND!

Breakfast Topic: What part of you does your character represent? {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 8:21AM Given that my RL is full of responsibilities I can be quite immature when playing WoW. I tend to think of my priest, who is usually on the progression end of whatever raiding is current, as a bit of a snarky, rude, full of herself jerk, but as a healer I also feel like when the Sh** hits the fan she is a real hero underneath. I think that when Im goofing around in vent or mumble with my guild that I can be just the same, but when Its time for the pull its game face, gotta save the world.

Likewise with my other characters where I am less experienced (and like wise, suck at) I come off as more reserved. I dont want to be crackin' as many jokes or busting on as many people when I am not pulling my fair share. So I guess its not the classes themselves that affect my personality but my relationship to those classes.

Breakfast Topic: Has Cataclysm let you down? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2011 12:21PM I guess stream lining questing is supposed to make me feel like I'm a bigger part in the story, and make leveling more fun, but while I agree it definately makes leveling alot faster, you can pretty much shut your brain off and go on auto pilot. The story is there, and its interesting, but its so easy to quest and level that you don't really have to pay attention to it. I was questing in Hyjal, while watching TV, and playing with my kids, and I suddenly realized I was hanging out with Malfurion Stormrage.

It's cool that they put in these giant lore characters into the story and you can interact with them, but there was no reason for me to pay attention to the game so much to even realize it. The mobs don't hit very hard, and everything is so easily accessable via flight that I didn't have to worry about my surroundings.

I wish there was one or two big story line arcs you could take in each zone, with lots of little quests around, like in the past. I don't like how you either play the zone, or you don't. There are no quests that you can skip because the next part of the major arc won't unlock until all the quests are done.
