Feb 7th 2011 10:04AM I don't heal pets. That's on you, hunters. If your pet is getting owned, Mend Pet or pull it out. Do not call for heals for it. I have enough to worry about with actual players.
Feb 2nd 2011 8:17PM "but I grew to really enjoy feral PvP along the way."
Of course you did--it was ridiculously OP! A feral has crazy burst and undispellable bleed damage on single targets. Oh and did I mention they cannot be cc'd by anything but a cyclone? Their pvp uptime was crazy good!
These nerfs are much needed.
Jan 29th 2011 10:43AM Please, Blizz, just put some version of this endless tweaking onto the live servers. This has been a painfully long wait for much needed corrections and it's never going to be perfect.
Jan 28th 2011 11:50AM Yeah, as several posters have commented above, the twink fix of turning off xp effectively killed the griefing joy of twink pvp. When faced with the prospect of grinding away low level bgs, after long queue times, against similarly geared twink players there for the same reason, most people just said "Screw this" and decided it's better just to play max-level pvp.
Good fix, in my opinion. Twinking was always an excuse to bully lowbies. A level playing field killed the petty fun for them and I am all for that.

This is what I'm talking about. Incoming: lots of dark eye-makeup and clothing bought from Hot Topic.
Jan 27th 2011 8:17PM I want Jaina to get corrupted and go all Dark Phoenix and become a raid boss.
Jan 27th 2011 8:14PM She is evil. Period.
The semantics are the usual spin by Horde fanboys who play UD characters.
She's dead. She was rez'd by the Lich King. That makes her evil. She hates the living. That's her friggin' battle cry! "Death to the living!" How is that not evil?
I played a UD toon and it's completely the most evil of all WoW toons. I mean, look at the Holocaust-type shit that used to go down in the Apothecary? It's just sick.
I think she's a great character. But you can't really clean up the undead. Every other Horde race, sure, they can just be misunderstood. Taurens for sure, even trolls and Blood Elves--and certainly Goblins--they are shades or gray.
Orcs are bit problematic simply because they practice genocide. But the Undead are--flippin' undead! That's pretty evil.
Jan 27th 2011 7:12PM Sylvanas is certainly one of the more compelling and tragic figures in WoW lore. Of this there can be no argument.
However, she is certainly corrupt. This is the nature of the Forsaken curse. She is corrupt and. yes, slightly more evil than most. I don't know why Blizz fights this perception as it seems built into the character and lore.
And while you can certainly argue there are many different kinds of corruptions--being a corpse resurrected by the Lich King pretty much trumps most of the others.
Jan 25th 2011 12:38PM How about the moron from another faction who gets owned multiple times then hops on his low level alt in your faction to start whispering you smack?
Jan 25th 2011 9:31AM I have been in many, many guilds since Vanilla and there always seems to be one officer, usually a young guy, who thinks it's hilarious to gkick people then invite them back immediately. I always hated this practice. It's disruptive and unnecessary. Plus now I think it would reset your guild rep, which would be especially egregious.
Another guild-related nuisance is the one girl in guild who is terrible in every way but is either the GMs girlfriend or else he wants to do her and so she gets preferential treatment and spams gchat with inanities and banal sexual innuendos constantly in between asking people to do things for her toon.
I also hate the a-holes who park on top of flight masters and vendors (carry Baby Spice for such occasions).
People who think they are badass simply because they are Horde. It's true Horde tends to have more people who understand pvp, but it also has more people who get carried by these people. I have played both factions, and I will say Alliance is much harder to pvp on. So if you are really a pvp badass, step up to the challenge and play some Alliance.
That being said: People who do not understand the battleground objectives. Yeah. That. Go ahead and run for the flag everyone. And when I solo guard a node while a dumbass dps runs out solo and assaults and gets owned five times straight before he finally decides he's had enough and suddenly I am guarding the node with seven people. Sigh.
