The trouble with tabards {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 11:01PM I'll assume the third one you have now is also mine for the taking.

The trouble with tabards {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 7:12PM "...these posts make it clear that they are looking for very Blizzard-esque solutions to our concerns. I just want them sooner than later..."

But if you actually got it sooner and not "soon", it wouldn't be Blizzard-esque.

Breakfast Topic: Does WoW light your creative fires? {WoW}

Jan 21st 2011 8:17AM I'm not sure how creative you could call blogging, but it is a form of writing, and I never would have started blogging if it weren't for WoW. I enjoy writing (especially by typing), but no venture was ever able to hold my attention for very long, so I was never able to actually complete any project I set out to write. Then I hit upon the idea to start blogging, and a year and a half later, I'm still going strong. I had tried those dime-a-dozen "My thoughts of the day" blogs before, but I lost all motivation to write in those. Somehow, having a focus for my blog (WoW) made me able to keep going strong, and now it has a fairly sizable readership, which I am really proud of.

Then again, I'd call this post pretty creative: http://www.wowphilosophized.com/2010/01/wow-philosophized-loves-discovery.html

Feral Druid Tanking 101, page 2 {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 8:34PM Sorry to not have any constructive comments to give, but right now, the link to page one on page two leads to the home-page.

The Queue: That's "Famous Titles" {WoW}

Jan 17th 2011 11:21AM Question: When I look at my character's model, my helm, spaulders, weapon, and cloak are rendered in glorious detail, but every other piece I am wearing is much, much less detailed. What gives?

The Daily Quest: The grinding of gears {WoW}

Jan 12th 2011 7:37PM Since it fits the theme, I would like to add that I recently wrote up a list on my blog of gear for druids that they can get without entering an instance, a sort of "pre-normals" or "skipping normals" guide. It has entries for all specs.

Breakfast Topic: What's your proudest WoW moment? {WoW}

Jan 6th 2011 8:16AM Getting my Violet Proto-Drake, bar none. I worked literally for a year to get that thing, and I had to do some pretty frustrating achievements in the process (School of Hard Knocks; With a Little Helper from My Friends, which is incredibly frustrating as a feral druid). When I finally earned my last achievement (Lunar Festival Finery), I was so overwhelmed I forgot to take a screenshot. Thankfully I had an addon to do it for me. Though I don't use the mount anymore now that my Onyx Netherwing Drake (which is much prettier) travels at the same speed, I'm proud to say that I earned my 310% speed back before I could just buy it. Seriously, you kids have it too easy. Buying your way to the highest flying speed? And it costs the same as 280% flying? That's a travesty.

Dec 27th 2010 11:10AM Question: Do we know what the new gold sinks for Cataclysm are going to be?

Breakfast Topic: Has flight ruined the adventure? {WoW}

Dec 18th 2010 8:20AM I have to say that I disagree. For me, the sense of adventure comes from seeing the landscape, not from the potential danger of enemies attacking me, and by flying, I can see more of the landscape at a time, as well as see it from a broader perspective, allowing the magnitude of the wonder of the landscape really sink in. Flying also made me more willing to just look around old-world Azeroth, since walking was such a slow way to do so before, so for me, flying didn't ruin the adventure; it created it.

The Queue: End of the world {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2010 3:38PM @Artificial: I figured as much, I just wasn't sure whether old world flying fell into the category of things that required Cataclysm or things that would become available to every player (like the redesigns of the old zones).
