Breakfast Topic: Fear ... so exhilarating {WoW}

May 29th 2010 5:25PM I call BS.

1) You said "first time I saw the Grudge". Noone would see that movie twice, so clearly made up.

2). Are you serious that you're actually "nervous" in a video game??? Come on.

Maintenance day loot from WoW.com {WoW}

May 25th 2010 8:41AM Gimme back that filet-o-fish!

Mar 16th 2010 8:47AM Give me back that filet-o-fish. Give me that fish.

Breakfast topic: Your biggest regret? {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2010 9:05AM I regret every injecting myself with the drug that is WoW-crack over 5 years ago......

I have spent >12,000 hours playing WoW in that time. That's over 25% of my existence in the last 5 years. God that's pathetic.

But, I'm still annoyed when weekly maintenance delays my fix.....bah

Breakfast Topic: What do you do after raids? {WoW}

Feb 10th 2010 8:33AM I usually take care of stuff in game (gems/enchants/repairs) for about 10-15 minutes. After that I've gotten in the terrible habit of making myself something to eat and then watch tv until I'm not so wired. Unfortunately, this cycle has contributed to my chronic lack of sleep and to me gaining about 75 pounds since starting raiding about 4 years ago.

Free character migrations for select realms {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 2:56PM Why do you even mention Goon Squad from Mal'Ganis? They aren't "infamous" at all - they are a bunch of scrubs pretending to be pimps, when in reality they are just a bunch of crappy players trying to improve their online gansta epeens. Seriously, they don't deserve a site like wow.com to highlight them.

Are single faction transfers really uncommon? I can speak to the fact that Mal'Ganis really needs this - 4:1 horde vs. alliance ratio is just a little out of whack. Allowing free xfers for alliance to leave wouldn't help the situation at all.

Phat Loot Phriday: Zod's Repeating Longbow {WoW}

Dec 18th 2009 10:24AM You should mention in your notes about this weapon, that it is currently the BiS hunter ranged weapon in the game, and only the heroic version of this from data-mined items is known to exceed it. That leaves us waiting for 25-man heroic Lich King for any possible drop location of an upgrade.

It's nice to see you highlight an actual BiS item, instead of something crappy :D

More dungeon finder tips {WoW}

Dec 14th 2009 10:05AM I have to say that the random nature of the Random LFG is kind of untrue - at least in my experience.

I'm up to 92/100 for the PUG pet, so I've been using the LFG thing quite a lot.

And I've done HoS 8x, Azjol Nerub 6 or 7x, and Violet Hold 6x. There's been a few other ones here and there, but yesterday took the cake - I got VH 3 times in a row.

I have NEVER gotten the new ICC 5 man heroics at all - which is pretty disappointing.

My theory is it is choosing dungeons based on a gear-to-difficulty pairing of some sort. In almost all the groups I've had there have been some terribly geared players - i.e. dinged 80 5 minutes ago kind of terrible. While I have full Tier 9, etc. gear (gearscore of 5600 if that matters to anyone). I would say these 3 dungeons that seem to love me are some of the easiest heroics out there, which seems consistent with matching the dungeon based on the worst geared players in the group.

Anyway, it's all fine and well - most of these runs are over in 15-20 minutes.

Ammo controversy in 3.3 already {WoW}

Dec 9th 2009 1:05PM I don't understand all of these false statements about how rare raiding engineers are. In my top 50 US guild, we have about 7 engineers that are regular raiders - including 2 hunters (myself being one).

That being said, the statements about "finding an engineer of the correct specialty" are also hilarious. It costs ALMOST NOTHING to change specialties - so who the hell cares? If I do nothing but raid I make 500-1000 gold in a week, i think I can afford to spend 150 gold once in a blue moon when I change my ranged weapon. Or better yet, myself and the other hunter are already covering both specialties - so yippee skippie.

And yes, I plan on making a crapton of gold selling the new ammo for 200 gold per 1000 ammo ASAP. *evil gold-hungry laugh*

Pilgrim's Bounty FAQ {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2009 11:49AM On Mal'Ganis there was only one table with any chairs at all, and that one only had 3 chairs, making it impossible to do the achievement to eat in Org on MG right now. Pretty stupid bug to slip through.

Also, the stupid turkey shooter achievement doesn't give credit if you shoot a rogue that is already a turkey. Again, pretty stupid they keep those things recurring in the game for these world events. But, not surprising.
