Jun 15th 2009 5:20PM I agree that healing UIs would be nice. Real ones (i.e. pretty without shoving raid frames off into an I-was-standing-in-the-fire-because-I-was-watching-Grid corner).
Ehh, maybe I'll submit mine anyway, despite my basis in a readily available UI. I have Grid front-and-center, with a clear area around my character so I can see anything I need to see. Just need a day or two of raiding to take some decent shots.
Jun 15th 2009 3:57PM Really? I only do the fishing daily about once every 2-3 days, but I have nearly two stacks of water walking crap. :\
Jun 15th 2009 3:16PM This. Even if I'm taking screenshots in Dalaran, I start up my DBM and such in test mode to simulate the clutter.
I'd submit my UI, but it's a variant of one that's freely available on wowinterface. So, meh.
Jun 15th 2009 2:48PM They don't let you fly until the end of Northrend because Northrend is current content. When we're at patch 4.1 or 4.2, I suspect cold weather flying will be nuked.

I dunno. Maybe I just run with a better group in 10s than when I do 25s (there's more ability to filter stupid people out when you take a large guild and shave it down to the ten people of your choice). But I've never thought 25s were easier. :)

Jun 15th 2009 1:55PM Now you're going to tell us that the girls all play Blood Elves, right?
Jun 15th 2009 1:49PM A follow-up note....
I'm not saying this is why EVERYONE should play 25-man instead, or why people who play 10 are stupid (i.e. my gear is better than yours, neener neener). I'm just presenting a view from a 25-man raider that doesn't involve calling people with a different preference lazy or stupid.
Honestly, everyone likes different things. Can we not bitch that one or the other is better or more casual or idiocy like that?
Jun 15th 2009 1:22PM The questioner asked:
"Is there a perception that 25-mans are for "serious" raiders and 10-mans are for 'casuals'?"
You responded, indirectly:
"That will signal to other like-minded players that you aren't just a bunch of lazy slobs for whom putting together 25 players is too much work."
Is that REALLY why you think people prefer 25-mans? Sigh.
The drops are better. End of story. Seriously. 80% or so of the people who prefer 25-mans do it for the better gear, whether it's their only reason or not. Maybe they do it for the added challenge, or because they love all of the people they run with... but somewhere in there, if you ask them why they prefer 25s to 10s, "the drops are better" will usually be in there. For me, it's second behind "more challenging." We aren't afraid that people will see us and think we're retarded (at least, not most of us).
Jun 14th 2009 3:29PM "You'll never hear "I HATE THE ALLIANCE" or "FXCK THE HORDE" in PvE servers."
Really... so... all those times I heard it, my PvE server had transformed into a PvP server for those few seconds, or what?
