World of Warcraft Patch 3.3.0a deployed {WoW}

Dec 14th 2009 4:49PM I had already changed those camera issues as soon as the patch hit - I don't use default camera settings so I noticed the difference as soon as I logged in on patch day.

I already tried out the work around described above by mysticalos and crschmidt and after playing for a few hours today the sticking issues has disappeared. So I can attest it works. As soon as I logged in I also immediately noticed the response difference on my track pad which had been making healing with grid a pain a few nights ago.

Dec 14th 2009 12:32PM Wow, this is really great info from commenters =D Thanks you two. You have sufficiently rocked my socks.

Dec 14th 2009 11:13AM I've had a really bad problem since patch which I assume were mac related. I play on an older Macbook Pro (still intel chip though) and the problem is that my keys stick. It's not hardware side though, as I've plugged in an external keyboard, and tested out my keys in a few other MMOs. The problem started immediately after patch and has never been a problem before. It's a devastating bug when you're trying to raid or arena and find yourself stuck running in one direction and unable to do anything except get yourself or your party killed.

Gender differences in armor {WoW}

Dec 6th 2009 9:14PM I'm a feminist, and I don't care how you or your character dresses. I only care about what comes out of a person's mouth. If you can have an intellectual conversation in some butt floss and pasties, by all means, wear whatever makes you happy. Any feminist who thinks otherwise is missing the big picture.

That being said - I agree with tabards being hideous. I'd like to see two different styles - an ankle length one for robes, and the standard knee length one for pants is fine, and then a better rep grind option for next expansion so we don't have to wear 'em.

Breakfast Topic: Is Blizzard doing faction change the right way? {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2009 2:02PM Allowing Alliance races to join the Horde faction as is, or vice versa, would severely changed the core of the game that Blizzard has tried to establish. Since Blizz went through such lengths in Wrathgate to hint at a more distinct dispute between the factions I don't forsee uplifting the foundation of the game as part of their long term plan. Unless they have a third faction in the cards... which I've dreamed of but don't expect.

TurpsterVision: TCG Loot and Huge Roosters {WoW}

Jul 1st 2009 3:43PM I have a friend who raids with voice activated instead of press to talk... this generally leads to a hot mic and the sound of his mouth smacking together as he chews gum... ugh...

That being said, I want an ogre piƱata! =D

Breakfast Topic: Is your class missing out on in-game lore? {WoW}

Jun 11th 2009 7:21PM sigh...

I loved the Benediction questline in Vanilla. There was also a quest in Silithus where the priest wife of the leader at the Cenarion camp there goes crazy from the influence of the C'thun and you have to kill her. In that quest, the poor dwarves who first suffer her insanity describes what it feels like to be in range of a psychic scream which I thought was pretty cool.

Jun 11th 2009 7:17PM Priests... especially horde priests.

Troll priests, what exactly do they worship? Troll gods don't exactly seem to suffice. How did priests get in tune with holy and shadow magic to begin with? Shamans strike me as the natural healer of choice to Troll culture, what is a priest to the Trolls?

Do Blood Elf priests practice the ideas of the Church of the Holy Light since the High Elves were once close to the Humans? Why are there only three powers in Silvermoon City (Farstriders, Blood Knights, and Magisters) and no priest representation? Does that mean blood elf priests are largely unappreciated or disrespected in their community? Did the loss of the sunwell effect the magic of elven priests?

Overall I want to know more about the origin of priests powers. Holy magic is not arcane magic, does not distort the fabric of space to yield threat from the Burning Legion. Thus, the Night elves use it and draw their magic from Elune. What about Shadow magic? The shadow magic used by priests is themed 'mind' this 'mind' that. And I remember at some point reading some official description of priests as masters of bending the will of others to heal or harm - or something like that. Is a priest's shadow magic thus a telekinetic thing as opposed to a warlocks shadow magic which is demonic in nature? o-O; wouldn't that qualify another school of magic? After all, night elves would not tolerate the magic warlocks (or even mages and arcane magic, due to the threat of the burning legion) use, but tolerate shadow priests. If shadow priests are such masters of the mind, how did it come about? When do we get to fly? I want to know more about how this works >
