Sep 25th 2009 3:27PM Well, there ARE a few mistakes, but I still enjoyed the guide because it was fairly upbeat and straightforward.
Sep 25th 2009 3:26PM I've been enjoying your Hunter guide, but I want to point this out:
At level 40, Hunters could start wearing mail gear.
(Why not point out the Tough Scorpid Armor set? I wore several pieces of that all the way to Outland!)
Jul 21st 2009 5:55PM Gah, I wasn't paying attention to my English (second language) - I didn't mean to type in "Are they antipathic..." Please ignore that one! XD
(Yes, I know what it means. C:)
Jul 21st 2009 5:53PM Yet again, look at my second fable. Does the couple dislike their neighbors because they're gays? No. Do they disagree with gay marriage? Yes. Are they antipathic? No. Do they intensely hate or fear their neighbors, with whom they entrust their children? No. Are they homophobic? You answer that one.

Oh, no, no. That is not what I'm trying to get across. I agree completely on taking up issue if people try to bar others via governmental means or if blatant discrimination happens, etc.
What I mean is that if a person do NOT agree 100% with the gay agenda, that does NOT mean he/she is homophobe. Hence, please, my dear readers, do not toss that label around.
Jul 21st 2009 5:04PM @ Kay:
Phobia is fear. Just fear, not hatred.
Therefore, the reasoning behind the second fable's couple disagreeing gay marriage is unnecessary. Perhaps they DO fear the effects of gay marriage on society, but they don't fear gays themselves.
Again, my point is that fear is NOT hatred, nor "intolerance." If you must disagree with those who don't support gay marriages, don't call them homophobes. That's what annoys me.
Jul 21st 2009 4:45PM Originally I wasn't planning to leap into this fray (which goes to show how intelligent I am for doing it now, huh?), but I spotted a few comments that I would like to respond to. Here, I'll write out a few scenarios for y'all; I hope you enjoy them!
The Fable of the Homophobe
One day, a couple was strolling down Broadwalk, enjoying the sights. Soon, the wife glanced at the people milling aside and gasped. Her husband turned his face toward her curiously, and the woman discreetly pointed toward a pair that was almost certainly, quite possibly, but might not be gay. The husband's eyes widened, and before his wife could inquire as to what was the matter, he was already in the ocean and swimming furiously toward the far-off boat on the horizon, as far away from the possible-gay couple as he could get.
That, my dear readers, is a homophobe.
Here's a second one!
The Fable of One Who Do Not Approve But Do Not Hate (AKA Tolerance)
There was another couple, unlike the first mentioned in which the husband fled into the ocean and had to be recused from the sharks, which are neighbors with a gay couple that had obtained a marriage license. They're fairly decent friends; should trouble arise, the parents feel completely comfortable with leaving their children under their neighbors' care. They don't throw eggs at their neighbors' nice, shiny new car or tie their cat to a branch. They don't toss bricks through their neighbors' windows or commit arson. But, however - there's always a but - they voted against gay marriage, which their neighbors may know of (they don't actively speak against gay marriage, but they will voice their opinion if asked). They actually like their neighbors a lot... they just don't believe gay marriage should be allowed.
That, my dear readers, is not a homophobe.
I certainly hope y'all enjoyed that! I was slightly amused while writing the "Fable of the Homophobe."
*sits down and gets ready to be down-voted, flamed, slandered with nasty names, etc*
Jun 19th 2009 12:19PM This may seen as a buff to PVP, but I'm not so sure (not a PVPer here), but this is a huge blow to PVE crowd control. The cooldown on the traps are 30 seconds as you all know, and now they only lasts 30 seconds? Bye-bye, putting down a trap and waiting for the cooldown to expire before pulling mobs. It's going to be a LOT tougher to chain-trap, and while it may not be necessary in WotLK, I won't be too surprised if crowd control makes a return in the next expansion, and the poor Hunters would be left in dust.
May 7th 2009 4:46PM I'm leveling my Warlock to 70 (already got my first alt, my Mage, to 70 - naturally, my main Hunter has been 70 for a while now) because I don't have WotLK yet. I know, I know. Shocking, but I'm a college student with a five-year-old laptop. Regardless to say, I'm still on BC. But hey, I'm getting WotLK in July!! I can't wait!! :D
Mar 19th 2009 2:29PM Hmm, I have one reason for not using Vent, and I know there are players out there with the same reason (not counting my sister and a few of my friends). We're deaf. :)
Seriously, think about that. There are mute people playing WoW, there are deaf people playing WoW, there are people with such severe CP that they hate to talk on Vent (my sister's friend was /gkicked because he couldn't type fast enough - his hands are very weak - and he could BARELY speak clearly on Vent).
Think about it. :)
