Mar 16th 2009 1:21PM This saddens me, actually. Yes, getting to the highest levels of cooking and fishing is hard ... and it SHOULD be hard. The top-end buffs for cooking are verging on awesome, and getting to the point where you can do them should be both difficult and exclusive. What is the point of really great rewards if anyone can get them with little or no effort or investment.
I think they are breaking the game with this one. Jerks.

Since you activated Warden (by executing WoW), it has all the
authority it needs to do its thing.
This is not true. Running a program does NOT give it any authority to override data segregation rules in OS X. Nor is there any way to have your administrator authorization "embedded" at install time. Execution is NOT authorization, period.
IF the Warden client was running on OS X, it would need you to provide administrator access EVERY TIME you run it.
Mar 10th 2009 10:02AM I think that there are three things that should be pointed out by any writer any time "Warden" is mentioned either in passing or as the main subject of a piece:
1: Warden is *not* any sort of surprise or skullduggery. Its operation and limitations are clearly laid out in the user agreements, and every player has to specifically agree to what is going on. Nothing is happening under the table, you AGREED to this. If you didn't read the agreement, then that is your own damn fault.
3: Warden only runs on Windows boxes. The OS X client doens't have it because OS X (properly) segregates applications' data from each other. No program can affect or even be aware of another's data without administrator intervention and approval. DOS, of course, does not do this, leading to the general Happy Hunting Ground of malware on Windows machines. For clarity, articles mentioning Warden should specifically mention that this only deals with the Windows client.
