Dec 15th 2011 4:05PM Should have been available from the beginning, tbh. I can't wait for this to come to WoW.
Dec 15th 2011 4:03PM @Edy: It's still not bad for a last minute job. I like it. :)

Dec 15th 2011 1:45PM I love seeing families cosplay together. One of the best I've ever seen was several years ago at Otakon, a family that consisted of husband and wife as Mario and Peach, the older kid as Luigi, and the baby as Toad. They even did up the carriage to look like a mushroom house.
Dec 14th 2011 7:10PM @Shinae: Liadrin herself was a former priestess of the CotHL. Hers was not exactly uncommon an attitude among her generation, and given that the Silver Hand itself was formed by priests back in the day, it's not really a stretch to assume there was a) a fair minority of quel'dorei Silver Handers and b) they later became Blood Knights. Especially considering the sheer number of quel'dorei priests in the church. And tbh, High Elves were never especially devout as compared to their human and dwarven brethren. They were always more like White Mages than clerics anyway.
Also, Quel'Thalas had regular knights in addition to spellbreakers and rangers. Lor'themar isn't classed as a hunter or even a bow-user in WoW, but he was a member of the Farstriders. There are ordinary knights and footmen among the Blood Elf units in TFT. That we haven't seen them in WoW until Cata was handwaved with "they were too ill/weak to train as such after the fall".
Dec 13th 2011 8:29PM Amended to add that if you think the scenario in which you got your axes would be more common in a pug full of 25 strangers than the one I described, you are seriously fooling yourself.
Dec 13th 2011 8:28PM I don't hate it at all, because taking an item away from someone who needs it as a legit upgrade because you want your toon to look cooler is absolute bullshit and the reason why I never ran in pugs on Moon Guard.
If you want gear from a current raid for mogging, run it with your guild. The LFR system is no place for that kind of thing.
Dec 13th 2011 8:21PM @Jeff: Why do you need perfectly itemized everything if all you're doing is LFR? You are already "relegated" to ilvl 384 gear. People doing normal difficulty raids can't even get perfectly itemized gear in every slot (just ask any healing priest that ran Firelands when it was current). This is by design, Blizz has said so many times. It's nothing new, and the fact that you're crying over an item having less than 100% perfectly itemized stats for your spec in the easy mode stuff you're doing is just silly. The difference in stats is negligible and will have no bearing on your performance in the lower difficulty environment that is LFR.
This isn't like ICC where your BiS gear is cloth. Take your spell shield and stop crying.
Dec 13th 2011 5:50PM If you're talking about pure efficiency, knocking out a ton of green and yellow quests has always been superior to doing red quests. The thing is, leveling is a lot different now than it was for the end of Wrath. tbh I don't even see red quests anymore in Cata, the way they have zone progression set up now. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head have been dungeon quests for multi-winged places like Stratholme or BRD. Maybe the group quests in Ghostlands, but those are completely trivial to solo even for clothies now in my experience.
Things are also much different in terms of leveling pets now than they were at the end of Wrath. Blueberries are beyond useless for leveling now, ever since they got nerfed into irrelevance because of things like people tanking Sartharion with them. They can't hold aggro worth a damn anymore, even if you have taunt macro'd and apply it manually, and even if your toon's not in heirlooms. If you are, sneezing will pull aggro. Which doesn't matter in the scheme of things unless you're fighting one of the rare remaining elite quest mobs because everything dies so fast. You're generally better off using a felpuppy or whatever for the extra dps. I only used my VW on my current lock until I got the succubus.
