When AFK attacks {WoW}

Feb 8th 2009 2:35PM We all have our WoW stories... How is your wife's news material?

Faith and World of Warcraft at Colorado University {WoW}

Jan 29th 2009 6:36PM The difference between Religion and WoW is that people don't go around killing each other for playing a different MMO.

WoW Moviewatch: Story of the Jarhead {WoW}

Jan 25th 2009 11:30PM What I can't get over is how kids can trivialize this war by playing it out with video game characters. It's dishonorable and disgusting.

WoW Moviewatch: Darkwinds Scourge {WoW}

Jan 16th 2009 12:10PM Poor, to say the least. A lack of good movies to feature doesn't mean you HAVE to feature.

Plus, as an RP guild their trailer has Disturbed music? Fail.

Breakfast Topic: What you call home {WoW}

Jan 5th 2009 8:18AM I loathe Dalaran, but for simple reasons.

1) The sewer is an added component that draws no use, nor traffic.
2) You can not fly in Dalaran.
3) It has no schools, only shops. You would think Dalaran would have at least one study room.
4) Early on the Horde commit vast crimes of genocide against Dalaran, and now are hailed with open arms.

Dec 18th 2008 9:42AM Wait, we're ogres now? When did THIS happen?

Jewelcrafting's flawed design {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 9:48AM You're obviously not playing your profession right if you think this way.

Sure getting mats themselves are not easy, but let's look at how lucrative this profession is:

If you have mining you are an advantage. You can just fly around Icecrown and farm Saronite Nodes for 20 minutes and have at the very least one stack, and then perhaps some titanium in your bag.

Then you prospect whatever you have, should be at least one nice gem and tons of greens. Then you go to the auction house, see what gems are selling for what from what recipes, get those recipes over time, and sell sell sell.

Even if you don't have mining you can buy the ore on the AH and still come out with a freaking profit. Even if you don't cut anything!

Now obviously prospecting has its risks, but more often then not you will come out with huge profits. Just try it.

Breakfast Topic: Five-man thoughts {WoW}

Dec 7th 2008 1:49PM Essentially normal dungeons are very easy. And heroics difficulty depends on the dungeon. For instance, if you run Utgarde Keep on heroic it is a joke. But if you try to do Utgarde Pinnacle with a tank without at least 30k health and stacks a high amount of Defense you're boned.

TwentyFifthNovember becomes Ensidia {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 1:48AM To all the haters/pessimists:

Like it or not this guild is newsworthy in the WoW community. They get the first kills, and they get the endorsements. If you could care less regardless then that is your prerogative. But like it or not this is what is going on in the world... of warcraft.

Ask WoW Insider: The ninja debuff {WoW}

Nov 24th 2008 7:07PM Certainly not good sir! Certainly we all can understand that the act of "Ninja" is not from stealing another persons node/flower/quest item! To ninja is to Need (and some cases Greed) rolling on an item that someone else deserves/wants without proper permission.

Should you be fighting a mob near an item you want, there are numerous ways to incapacitate that mob in order to get that item. Paladins have their stun which is 5 seconds (which is the usual amount of time to loot a quest item), rogues have sap, mages have polymorphs, etc etc etc.

Just because you get to the item first does not qualify it as yours. It is whoever loots it first. This is a simple question of ethics. Should you feel polite and want to allow a Utopian society that is your prerogative. But if you want to finish your quests/farming in a timely manner you need to buckle down and do some things not in line with the general morale code. For if you don't someone else will.
