Breakfast Topic: What's your WoW New Year's resolution? {WoW}

Jan 1st 2012 2:59PM My resolution would be to get joystiq managers to actually understand what the abbrev ADA means and why it is important.

Breakfast Topic: Have transmogrification limits stymied your character's look? {WoW}

Dec 18th 2011 3:09PM I find the transmorg stuff amateurish. I still only recognize characters by their race attributes, never by their gear. All Warriors pretty much look the same. All Night Elves pretty much look like clones with no individuality unless they speak in trade. The only gear set that seemed distinctive to me was the starting DK set, but again all DK's look the same.

Blizzard needs to extend the concepts of Sex and Violence into the gear to make the game more interesting. I've noticed blizzard alterations of the game seem to favor making the game easier for the masses rather than have some creativity nooks.

I got the tyrael Charger but it was too effeminate for me to want to play it on a male char. I restricted it to female chars and shadow priests. So I would say WoW has bigger problems than just transmorg.

Breakfast Topic: Are you a solo player? {WoW}

Jul 31st 2011 2:58PM Everquest died out pretty quick when WoW came out. The big difference to me was that I could solo most anywhere in Wow. In Everquest the non raid player was limited to one zone pretty much at that time.

My raiding days are long over. Good memories, but very little productive life output. Now I just solo content for ach and exploring or working towards some piece of gear. The expansions come a little faster than I like them. But I do it on my time and schedule and not worry about raid egos too much.

Cata 4.2 seems pretty cramped and repetitive to me as a solo person. Maybe I missed a zone entrance there somewhere or something.

Winged Guardian mount in action {WoW}

May 31st 2011 3:31PM Well i liked this mount. I look at mounts and think dragon, bird, then colors and shape. WoW needs more customization of characters and mounts. One should be able to shop at a mount shop, etc. Blizzard tends to ignore the popularity of an individual unique look in game. It has been very popular in other games.

I'd like to be able to recognize a character by something unique besides the guild tag and title.

Officers' Quarters: The constant complainers {WoW}

May 30th 2011 3:02PM When I meet complaining people in a group setting who are only there for themselves I go for the throat. See yah, don't wanna be yah. There is no loss to the guild by asking them to work harder at making a raid set better. What complainers want it to really be carried to a higher level and not worry about interacting with people. They would prefer a robot guild, but instead they make their own guilds flounder by trolling.

Make complainer A go out and assist non raiding guild guy get some BiS gear. He will either do it, or leave the guild, or stop playing. It's a win-win for the guild in any of those choices. Doesn't matter if the complainer is the top rated DPS/TANK/healer. He is dragging the guild down. too many guild leaders are afraid to make the tough call here. Call the guy out at dead weight.

The Queue: How I do {WoW}

May 29th 2011 2:08PM Do melee need hit? An article yesterday seemed to suggest that a paladin rolling on a hit stat cloak was a bad thing and that a caster should have gotten it instead. I had thought every class and spec needed hit.

WoW Rookie: Becoming a PvP legend, step 2 {WoW}

Apr 21st 2011 6:54PM I like playing healers in Alterac Valley. A 51 level healer can turn that match around if the toons in it are serious about winning. IT's a miserable match to heal when the team races to the end boss and stands around guarding nothing. I will head back out then, but am not available to heal at boss when towers go down.

I look for an aggressive high DPS char to place my focus on and follow around.

Blood Sport: Drain Mana's removal and its impact on arena {WoW}

Jan 11th 2011 8:30PM Blizzard is trying to simplify and save money at the expense of variety in the game. Everything is becoming easier and more homongenous. They don't want to program weapons you can get attached to or let people design their own look and feel for their char. Everything is created within a tight closed system.

WoW Insider's Guide to Hallow's End 2010, part 2 {WoW}

Oct 17th 2010 3:16PM we'll be able to buy 310 flying and be on even with those that had completed the achievement?

If so this is where Wow screws the player base over and acts in bad faith. I'll never get the meta achievement just because of the serious carpal tunnel issue I had with juggling torches. I couldn't physically complete it. Complaints to blizzard on stuff like this go ignored. Wow.com also seems to ignore ada usability issues that could be fixed. Probably a reflection of AOL policies.

But anyway. I think wow needs some of these difficult achievements in the game that casual players can do. It adds some value and spice to the game. next thing you know they will start everyone at 450 fishing.
