May 6th 2009 10:15AM I really don't think the Vault has anything to do with the popularity of WG. It's currently the best place to earn Honor, and it is fun in itself. Plus the dailies award gold and Stone Keeper's Shards. I play it for all of the above reasons, but mostly because I enjoy it. I think WG would be just as popular without the raid instance.
May 5th 2009 9:03AM I think a lot of people are going to end up burned out because of the holiday achievements, not specifically the Children's Week achievements in general, but the whole meta. These short, week long holidays put a lot of stress on people who have jobs and families, but want that Drake or title. The game is overwhelming right now in terms of stuff to do, from Argent Tournament to holidays to raiding Ulduar, and adding achievements to the to-do list is bound to overload people who are probably a little obsessive-compulsive by nature.
Apr 30th 2009 6:57AM I'm thinking since Autobar is customizable, a person could disable all the buttons available via Dagassist, and use both addons. Autobar would be stripped to the essentials that you need a hotkey for, such as potions, and Dagassist could handle the non-essentials such as portals and professions. Sounds like a winning team.
Apr 14th 2009 9:19AM I'll buy the book regardless, but if I win it, so much the better.
Apr 9th 2009 9:43AM Originally, you could not use your normal mount in AQ. However, it's a huge instance. So these mounts would drop from any of the elites at the beginning so you'd have a ride. I have no clue why Blizzard just didn't let people use their normal mounts; maybe they wanted to maintain the ambiance by having people riding giant Silithids.
Apr 7th 2009 3:35PM Poor Whisperwind. The queue is going to be outrageous, what with people frantically leveling DK's and then trying to crash the party on the day of the protest. It's going to be a disaster for people who just want to play the game.
Apr 7th 2009 8:13AM I really enjoy reading Blood Pact these days. For the eye stalk gauntlet, I usually do a Voidwalker sacrifice to make sure I can get through OK. Also if you are targeted and slowed, Escape Artist or PvP trinket will get you out of it.
As for pet choice for Heigan for a Demonology Lock, if you have two points in Fel Synergy, the Felguard should survive. Whatever pet you use though, it's important to keep them on passive so you can recall them when he teleports to his platform.
Another recommendation I'd contribute is be sure to feed your Felguard his mammoth treats. And for Affliction and Destro Locks using the imp or Succubus, make sure they aren't phase shifted/invisible during buffing before the start of a fight. You want your pet buffed, too.
Mar 24th 2009 7:16AM It's a parody of Kafka's "Metamorphosis." "One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that in his bed he had been changed into a monstrous verminous bug."
Mar 16th 2009 4:35PM As far as the pain of hitting buy 140 times to fill a quiver, there is a handy addon called Reagent Restocker which will work on Ammo, or just about anything else you have to restock. It buys the amount you specify of a reagent every time you visit the reagent or ammo vendor.
