Nov 24th 2011 2:21PM I have 11 85's, currently leveling my 2nd priest and have a bunch of lvl 40-50 alts that I plan to lvl in the future. Obviously, I'm not able to play all of them on a regular basis, for instance, my warlock haven't been to any raid since TBC. One of my druids haven't really been played since WotLK. I've leveled both, but they were both pretty much abandoned after I dinged. My initial goal was to have every class and every profession on one server so I could choose which class I wanted to play any time and have professions so I could earn a bit of gold and always be able to create the items I would need (enchants, flasks, armor pieces etc.). That plan went down the drain when I started to play with a friend on a different server a couple of years ago and I transferred 3-4 characters. A year ago, I transferred 3 of my characters to a third realms since my first server is lowly populated and I wanted to be able to run pug raids. So now I play on three servers, I'm a member in three different guilds and I'm only really able to focus on 3-4 characters at a time. I have a bunch of alts that I've leveled with friends, some which I don't really see or talk to anymore so they remind me of them. Some of them were in guilds that no longer exist. Some of them remind me of certain players that I met. They all carry a piece of WoW history and I will never delete any of them. Deleting alts are utterly retarded.
Oct 28th 2011 10:39AM Leveled every class to 85, tried out almost every spec on all of them in raids or heroics and I find myself doing a bit of everything really, tanking, dps'ing, healing, my calling varies from month to month. I don't understand how anyone can stand doing the same thing over and over for months, even years, on end, there are so many great differences between classes and how you have to play in order to achieve good results. My main at the moment is feral druid (tank) and I love it, but I tanked with my DK and warrior in ICC, and maybe my pala shall finally be released from its position as bank alt when the next patch is inbound. Healing and dps'ing are both great roles, I actually consider DPS harder than healing in many ways. Healing can be a royal pain in the beginning, but when you start to know your class and what spells should be used in different situations, it starts to become relatively easy (depending on the encounter ofc). Everyone can DPS, but doing it properly and flawlessly in all kinds of situations, well, that is not easy at all and requires a lot of knowledge and skill. To conclude, I love every aspect of the game and I would urge anyone who plays it to try out different classes, specs and test their mettle in different situations.
Apr 27th 2009 5:10AM Very nice article. As stated above, interesting questions dealing with issues a lot of people are wondering about (cc, composition, strategy). A lot better than the last three articles, I would say. Keep up the good work.
Apr 20th 2009 4:27AM I don't know if it is because of the standard questions or the players, but I always get the feeling that the answers in each interview usually are recycled bullcrap. " We have experience with every combo, change strategy mid-fight if necessary, just generally try to cc their healer." I always get the feeling that a lot of arena players doesn't really want to share some of their inner thoughts on strategy and how to tackle certain situations, issues that would've been interesting to read and think about.
Mar 25th 2009 1:32PM I'm so sick of ninja's, or people supporting ninja's, that they always, and I mean always, utter the following sentence: " Dude, what's the problem, its only pixels, it's only a game." We are real people, and we use our, very real, time to play this game. When you ninja, you're screwing real people, and waste their time. Its equally disgusting to steal something in real life as it is on the internet. I always get so angry when I read about this stuff, I've, luckily, never encountered a ninja and I hope I never do. Other than that, Guildwatch rocks. Probably the most entertaining coloumn on Wowinsider. Keep up the good work.
Mar 23rd 2009 3:29AM Wait. Doesn't meat come from the super market?
Mar 22nd 2009 9:24AM Wow, another change to make warlocks and mages more alike.
Mar 7th 2009 3:52PM As I said, its not fun when some classes are totally OP. Like DK in pvp atm. With the exception of ret pala's, there is few classes DK's really fear. When GC say that they try to make EVERY class, EVERY spec equally viable.. Well.. That would suck, imo.
Mar 7th 2009 3:15PM I dont understand why everyone have this irritating need to be able to compete with every class and spec. Why not start to appreciate the differences between classes, and settle for that some classes should be better than others for different things.
Take affliction/demonology warlocks. In season 4, whenever we met a disc priest in arena, we knew this would be a really hard fight if the player on the opposite knew a little about how to play. After awhile, after a lot of defeats against disc priest teams in 2v2, I started to appreciate this fact and try to analyze how to beat em. That was fun, and a nice challenge.
I dont appreciate classes that are OP because that usually means that a class dont have some enemy classes, classes that can really make them sweat. What I really want, and my whole point with this reply really, is to see that all classes get at least 1 or 2 different enemy classes, and 1 or 2 other classes they should be able to beat. Balance, in my point of view, is not fun at all.
Mar 6th 2009 4:43PM Ooh. Think its time I level my priest :)
