The Queue: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes {WoW}

Apr 4th 2012 12:46PM I understand the argument for showing leg armor. I'd be pissed too if I was an artist and my designs were useless, because a race couldn't disply them properly. However, as someone else pointed out... what about Tauren? Have they ever displayed boots? I have a few lvl 85 Tauren but I can't remember at the moment if any of them have anything but hooves showing.

I also go back to my earlier point re: the visibility of leg armor and the like. If a robe covers your legs and the only option is to physically remove the robe in order to see the leg armor... that's not a huge logical step from just not having leg armor.

A Naga with legs, after all the lore/backstories/whatever else we have been given, would just feel like a weak attempt to pacify players. But would I still play one? Absolutely.

Apr 4th 2012 12:19PM What's the issue with not being able to see leg armor? Couldn't you accept that as a trade-off? My main is a lock... aside from a few unfortunate tunic mishaps during BC, a robe has always covered his legs/boots. If I look really REALLY hard I can sort of make out some pixels resembling a shoe sole.

If that was truly their only reason for not bringing Naga to the PC side, I'd like to see a poll on WoW Insider asking whether invisible leg armor would be an issue. For me, the ends justify the means, but I can understand some people wanting to see every last thread of their hard-earned armor.

The Queue: Come to me, Pandaria {WoW}

Mar 26th 2012 1:18PM To further confuse things, Americans (such as myself) pronounce "fillet" like "fill-ay," but manufacturing engineers (also like myself) pronounce a certain corner break as a "fill-it." Spelled the same, pronounced differently.

I knew there was another WoW word my buddy horribly botched, and the comments brought it to mind:

"Draenei" = "Da-nari"

There's many, many other similar stories, to the point that sometimes I think he is doing it just to see my ears bleed.

Mar 26th 2012 11:32AM I thought they did away with realm-first achieves for specific race/class combos with Cata? Although the world-first lvl 90 monk will be news, no doubt.

Mar 26th 2012 11:30AM I have a buddy who pronounced a certain location in BC like this:
Terrokar Forest = "Tek-nar Forest"

Drove me nuts, to the point that I could barely listen to him say it.

Poll: Which was your favorite classic WoW 40-man raid? {WoW}

Mar 13th 2012 6:16PM "Well, not putting an option up for people who didn't raid in classic makes the results of the poll inaccurate."

I wouldn't say a poll asking people for their opinion of Woodstock (the 60's version) was inaccurate if it did not include people who did not attend, or only saw videos of it.

If you didn't raid in classic, how would you form an opinion of any of the raids?

The Queue: 64-butt client {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 12:15PM I personally would not pay RL money for anything related to WoW... but I don't see the difference between paying for a title and paying for a pet from the Bliz store.

Either way, you're paying actual money for something that does not in any way shape or form benefit your character more than anything you could achieve without stepping out of game.

The Daily Quest: Lego the nerfbat {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2011 6:06PM I'd like to personally thank you for making me feel older than dirt.

I can remember seeing that on TV and humming it for hours while I built Lego buildings.

When does my Social Security check arrive? Is Matlock on yet? Why Is 2:30 PM too early for the early-bird special at supper? I'm getting the vapors, need to lay down on my davenport and relax.

The Queue: Not to nitpick ... {WoW}

Sep 11th 2011 1:34PM There was a netherweave set in BC that was craftable by tailors. It gave you the option of a robe or tunic. I personally hate shirts, because apparently the undead are incapable of wearing nice-looking pants, but to each their own. Wish there was an option to choose between robes or tunics so everyone would be happy.

Seriously, check out an undead in a tunic sometime. Mage T8 looked like Angus Young.

Sep 7th 2011 9:54PM As to your question about Sylvanas... good one. Probably some sort of apothecary recipe holding her together. I'd like to see the answer to this.

I am replying, though, to this statement: :"if something should fall off that impairs them from performing their duties, they are basically worthless."

Why would they be any more or less worthless than any other race that loses an appendage? Say a Tauren gets his hand cut off. Or an orc loses his foot. Given the constant batlles a lot of these towns see, it's not inconceivable that this could happen. Really, the only race that MIGHT be OK with losing an arm or a leg would be the trolls, and that would be pushing their regenative limits.
