Apr 4th 2012 2:58AM You don't get the mount in the in game mail once the friend has paid. It is added to your battle.net account. There you need to assign it to one of your characters, once you have done that you will get the mount in the in game mail.
I think SoR is a really cool promotion.
I have a friend who has been playing forever but very slowly, he has had an active account for years. At the moment he can't really afford the € 44,99 it takes to upgrade from BC to Cata. I would love to send him a SoR but can't because he has an active account. However my slacker friends that cancelled their BC account get Lich AND Cata for free! (and all the other goodies on top of that)
May 22nd 2011 9:26AM When Asheron's Call started twelve years ago you neede to do research to discover spells. Make combinations of components, try to cast something and if you were lucky you learned a new usefull spell.
That was a long time ago, even in AC you now buy the scrolls you need.
The problem is most MMO's have gotten close to fps games, everything has to be instant and easy, because that is what the majority of the paying customers want.
Can you imagine camping a spot for 24 hours like in EQ?
Sleeping, concentrating, obtaining rare components, all things that will be much closer to the written fantasy worlds are too much of a hassle in games.
Nov 8th 2010 1:34PM I just hate guns a lot, I do not like crossbows much but I love bows. I don't even upgrade to a better weapon if it is not a bow, and only to a crossbow if the increase is huge.
Finding a gun with better stats and then being able to change it into a weapon I like would be awesome!
Sep 27th 2010 9:21AM It's what you have to do, 0-60 (amd then 0-70, and then 0-80 and soon 0-85) is the tutorial, where you learn how to control your character and get ready to play the real game, in my case raiding, for other people arenas or bg's
Sep 8th 2010 2:45PM Isn't Athene the greatest paladin in the world? ;)
Great article, the first part I read in the novel, but not about the battle against Ner'zhul, is this from the game lore or from a novel?
Aug 30th 2010 8:37AM In RL there is no proof that gods do exist, therefore there are people that do not believe in the existence of them (atheists) or people who do not consider them a factor as neither their existence or non-existence can be proven (agnostics).
In WoW there is proof that gods exist, you can even go to their layers and slay them. It is impossible to ignore the existance of C'thun or Yogg-Saron therefore being an atheist (or agnostic) is pointless.
Even the non-believing farmer in Durotar can be taken to the dwellings of the gods, be it AQ40 or Ulduar, whether they survive or not is another story.
In real life I still have not seen anyone calling LFM Hell(or Heaven) need 1 tank, 2 healers and 4 dps and actually making that raid happen ;)
Aug 30th 2010 4:08AM My reaction when they complain about my healing (which tbh hasn't happen in ages, healinh 5 mans in ICC gear is way too easy) :
'I'm here to keep you alive, not to keep you at 100% all the time.'
Usually followed by a comment about bringing your own food or 'we do not need to finish Gundrak in 97 seconds'
Aug 19th 2010 10:39AM I dinged 60, 70 and 80 on seven different characters during vanilla, tbc and wrath and it really didn't do anything for me.
Getting to 60 was some work but it was nowhere near the effort it took to get to max level in the MMO's before WoW that I used to play. Getting to the level cap in WoW is actually quite easy, and when things are easy to obtain the thrill of obtaining them is not that huge.
It was kinda fun though because hitting the level cap ment the tutorial was over and it was time to get to work for real ;)
Jul 27th 2010 1:20PM That would be lovely thank you
May 23rd 2010 3:40AM Hey Blizzard, while you are at it, make gearscore go away too please.
