You might not be adverse to this idea, but you really have no clue if you think everyone's names are common. My surname is Scandinavian in origin and it is unique - so much so that anyone that googles my full name will definitely be able to find me in the first page. The only other person I know with my name is a relative.
Jun 2nd 2009 9:05PM Yeah it amazes me that even though how much Blizz f*s up maintenance, other companies manage to f* up their entire game so much that everyone has to put up with Blizz.
Even if there was a serious competitor to the Wow juggernaut, it would probably put pressure on Blizz so much that WoW would improve itself, thus making me play and love it even more.
Win win for Blizz (from my perspective)

Nah, its changed dude, warriors can now only be "unhittable" for 10 sec, with a 40 sec cooldown (and thats talented).
Paladins can be unhittable.
Then again, Warriors have Critical Block. RNG Avoidance/Mitigation/whatever the fuck it is FTW
May 4th 2009 10:42AM You're right.
Keeping them around for amusement isn't optimal for our productivity.
Us Forsaken will have no qualms picking up some extra armor. Dont know about everyone else, though...

... on the other hand. I must say that this is lame. Crap.
Why? Part of the motivation for raiders to be "leet" and "hardcore" is the fact that they can see high end places like ye old Hyjal, Naxxramas(original), BT, SWP.
To suggest that this is NEW in Wrath is wrong, personally I felt something of the sort edging its way towards us with the removal of attunements (even including Karazhan).
As the focus on raiding goes from high-end places and unique specialties such as the amazing vistas and "OHHH SHIIIIIT ABOM!!!!" of Mt Hyjal and (for lack of a better word, epicness) of Black Temple, inclusive of the Illidari, the whole Highborne brethren concept (Giant sewer snake commander guy is friends with some "culturally advanced" elves who are ten foot tall, and yet all led by a severely oxymoronic Demon Hunter that was in a prison for 10k years).... into "hard modes" that remind me of arcade video games in a way, aka "How Many Drakes Can YOU Leave Up???" we're bound to see a loss of those dedicated, vision-focused raiders who wanted to experience it all. Likely to see breakup of raiding guilds as an institution based on this, I know I've seen two major raiding guilds annihilate themselves in a giant explosion of drama, in the past months.
Apr 28th 2009 10:30AM Haha, I laugh at the potential ramifications of a level-based aging system.
"Must be level 18 to buy" when trying to buy alcohol from a vendor.
Toons having acne as they level through 15-20. Haha.
Mind you, twinks would be more twinky in every sense of the word. (19 twinks anyway.)
hmmm.. would it work for undead (forsaken) players? Perhaps instead of being "young" we are just physically and mentally slow when we are fresh out of the crypt.
Apr 22nd 2009 4:13PM Agreed... I know myself, adopting pets is just as great as just getting a baby.
There was a cat who used to hang around outside my house. My family appropriately named him Hobo. But, as we put out food for him, his matted grey fur turned into a awesome-looking black and white fur tuxedo. His name somehow changed into Lucky. When we moved house, we decided to take him with us. Now he's a very friendly, happy house cat.
