Jul 8th 2009 1:40PM however,because you've now turned off xp you can quite easily farm the instances you want to for gear for your xp frozen toon in order to put them on par with others at your bracket. It's like the arena without rating restrictions on the best gear. If you stepped into the area as an 80 in mismatched greens and level 70 gear, don't be too suprised with the result, Likewise jumping into an x9 bracket without some of the better equipment.

Although they're playing against the machine, it's still competitive. If someone had a magic ball in golf that let them always get hole-in-one's are they harming anyone? By your standards no, since they're no directly competing, like say boxing would be, (PVP) with another, but they are competing against several others doing the same course each trying to see who's the best (PVE).

Apr 22nd 2009 9:42AM Seriously, the people on lothar haven't heard of the main spec before off spec rules (where spec is defined as your role in the pug)? Man I should've been rolling on every druid piece ever then, not just the healing ones.
Apr 17th 2009 12:56PM Depends on many factors, such as how much of the material you use and what you're doing with it really. Most creations should fall under 'fair use', but the law is tricky and of course I Am Not A Lawyer.
Of course, I'm pretty certain WoW character models/sounds likely already have copyright attached to them. If recall blizz specifically grants machinima creators a non-commercial license, so maybe look at that for some general ideas.
On the actual video, I liked it, it was actually probably slower than most music videos out today, but pretty well done. The visual was a pretty hilarious WoW take on the title.
Apr 16th 2009 2:55PM Actually that's a perfectly reasonable correlation to make, while they may not be good because they get paid, they get paid because they are good.
And seriously who's going to sponsor you if you suck?

No, seriously what server are you on that the average player is that caliber?
Apr 10th 2009 4:42PM While there is some commentary on profession specific bags, if you actually read the first two sentences, you'd see they echo the exact same sentiments you just expressed.
My opinion differs a bit in that I'm only willing to hand down my alts 16slot bags, and maybe profession specific. I've found it quite sufficient in terms of space, even double gatherers still had enough space to hold greys long enough for me to unload at a vendor at a convenient time. Northrend bags I find not to offer the value they would cost me, what with diminishing returns from more space and exponentially increasing price for the bags.

The issue is not that the 25man has overall higher ilvl gear, but that the badges can be used to buy gear equivalent to that of what the boss drops, making them actually useful and potentially a few BiS pieces (especially with tier tokens available). With 10man, the badge loot will be inferior to the loot that drops from bosses, making it useless except as a stopgap for filling in pieces (and even then only debatably so). Furthermore, 10man raiders won't be able to buy new tier8 tokens, making the proposition worse. This could be easily fixed in two ways, either 1)add new items for the emblems of valor that are equivalent to Uldar10 gear, or 2)use an exclusive 10man badge.
Apr 10th 2009 11:15AM I believe that's covered under section #3, but for levelling, the best bang for your buck is likely netherweave (16slot) bags, they're rather cheap, and really if you have a friendly tailor, you can gather the mats yourself stupid quick.
