Feb 13th 2009 10:32AM Vanilla is used in reference to an original.. before adding any other flavors.. the base.
The original game was just called WoW when it came out - that's all there was. As soon as TBC came out 'WoW' became this whole new entity and it could be assumed that if you played 'WoW' you were referring to TBC. If you wanted to reference original content you would use the term Vanilla.
Here is an UD reference:
17. vanilla 91 up, 43 down
It's the original of something, like the original Ice Cream flavour. In computergames the original game is called classic or vanilla when the expansion comes out.
Feb 13th 2009 10:18AM Hodir's spear is just a pattern - like anything else.
(I don't even know what the abilities are called so I'll wing it..)
-Start off with the big thrust as soon as your buttons pop up.
-Use grip a few times until you see the message that you are being swiped at - then hit the second buton (dodge?).
-Immediately hit the big thrust (button4) if it is up.. otherwise the jab (button3).
-Keep hitting grip a few times with a jab thrown in for dmg.
-Repeat the dodge/thrust(or jab) rotation until phase 2.
-You should not really take any damage at all if you are paying attention to the swipe messages.
-Phase 2 involves continually hitting button1 until you have built up to 20, then hitting the big thrust (button2). I don't wait for the button to refresh..just keep clicking to 20.
Feb 2nd 2009 4:11PM The thing that makes it a vent issue is the fact that he announced over vent that he had fought naked. At that point the whole raid is up to date on what happened.
Responding in whispers would only cause people to think that it is ok to do something like that.
Also - this kid needs to stay focused, finish high school, possibly attend college if he needs it for his career choice, live in the real world for a short bit... and realize that when you act like a d*ck - for whatever reason - you actually ARE a d*ck at that moment. It doesn't matter if someone verbalizes this fact or not - in this instance 24 other people are thinking it.
Note: This does not mean that you actually are, at the core, a d*ck. It merely constitutes an accurate description of you at that moment in time.
For instance - if you drive an average of 24 inches behind another car on the highway - d*ck. The other drivers nearby know this instinctively. They don't need a voice coming through the speakers to tell them. They also don't care that you are running late for an appointment/date/interview/etc..
(Using the highly effective "bright-beam-flashing" technique does not justify this behavior - d*ck. Everybody knows that you want to drive faster. They just want to remind you that you live in an actual society.)
Anyhow - grow some thicker skin. Take the actual and relevant criticism from people with whom you have played with for a long period of time - and move on. Otherwise /gquit and go join one of those elitist guilds where they frequently do allow individual members to randomly fight with no gear on...
Nov 11th 2008 11:30PM OMG!
The servers are STILL down!!!??!!
I'm leaving to go play War!!
Ok..I'm back.. because War sucks and I actually have nothing to do but sit here and refresh this page 60 times a minute while still tabbing over to refresh the realm status page while still attempting to log in to the game... which is still down!!
Time to /quit this #$%%^!!!
I'm back again because I hate this game so much for how the company treats me and my time!! They have no respect for the fact that I have nothing else to do during the relatively brief times they have been down in the past 3 years!!
Nobody even checked with me personally before instituting this bug to see how it would affect me on an individual level!!
Come January at least we won't have to deal with this crap anymore since Obama will ensure that WoW will be available to everyone at any time!!
Matter of fact - I'm leaving the game for good until then!!
Now I'm back because the game was NOT up yet! Even though I'll STILL be playing in 2 years they (Blizzard) have NO IDEA how this is affecting me and my entire plan.
I take this as a personal attack on my lack of rights under the EULA that I agreed to! If this type of thing continues through the WotLK release I solemnly swear that I will continue to QQ all the way up to and including the next Blizzard release which I WILL BUY - despite the fact that I am now done with this game forever!
...nope..still down :(
