Why Dragon Soul nerfs are good for everyone, especially hardcore guilds {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2012 10:31PM "means your accomplishments may look less impressive to other people."
And this... this right there, is - i believe - the heart of the buzz. If people ~truly~ raided for their own fun, and not for some bragging rights, it would not matter.

If people are raiding for bragging rights... whether they want to acknowledge it or not, they are staking too much self-esteem on this.

It's a game. Play for fun, not for glory.

Blue Posts and Other WoW News: Pandaren mount still being finalized, Book of Glyph Mastery {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2012 12:49PM He should make a hunter named Yakittiyak and a pet called Donttalkback.

Breakfast Topic: Would you mind moving for second? {WoW}

Jan 6th 2012 3:41PM fights with lots of movement can go die in a fire. I don't mind some movement, but i DO NOT like having to move every 1½ casts. Echo of Tyrande, go lay an egg.

Gold Capped: The fastest way to make 10,000 gold {WoW}

Jan 6th 2012 3:34PM *sigh*

I suppose i should get Auctionator, then. I HATE going to the AH to sell.... then going to my mailbox to pick up what didn't sell, and reposting. I do have 'rules' to limit this (such as not putting up a truckload of the same items at once items). But just... going to the AH... bleh! Not my game.

Believe it or not, though, this article is some help, to me. Maybe the AH won't seem so 'bleh' with something to better sort the listings out.

Thanks for the article. I'm going to get Auctionator right now.

Are common quality items rare to find? {WoW}

Dec 15th 2011 2:39AM "Then being all decked out in purple would actually mean something again?"

Actually, it does mean something, though maybe not what some people want it to mean.
It means: that the gear you are wearing is better quality than blue gear.

Blue Posts and Other WoW News: In which Nethaera gives us much more on the Mists of Pandaria talent overhaul decision {WoW}

Dec 10th 2011 12:46PM Well Amaxe, you beat me to it. I was thinking the same thing. And yes, when taken to the extreme, i do think it should pretty well shut the game down for that character. If it gets to the point where one would be hated by one's own faction, you would be fair game in PvP for players of your own faction as well.

How would one come back from that? I feel one should have to petition a GM, and explain why one should be re-instated. They should have to convince the GM that they've learned their lesson, and will be more productive in the future. If they succeed, their reps would be set to NEUTRAL. They would have to work them up again. Harsh? You bet. Tough rocks.

Know Your Lore: Archbishop Benedictus of the Holy Light {WoW}

Dec 7th 2011 3:16PM @ Pazazu
If there's one thing i've understood in the game, it's that - other than historical events - cannon does not necessarily mean absolute game fact. The only thing that is cannon about having faith to manipulate the Light, is that this is what is currently believed by the Church of the Holy Light. It doesn't, however, mean that they are right.

If people would understand this, there would be a lot less people going "lol retcon!" about changes in understanding of how the game world is.

Know Your Lore: Story development and why Theramore should burn {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 3:52AM @Mooli "Dustwallow Marsh was barely touched? Maybe Mudsprocket, but the Alliance put a freaking superhighway right through the middle of it. "

They put a road. That's.... it. That's not a whole lot compared to many other zones. You can call it superhighway or freeway or whatever... it's still just... a road, compared to, say, two new forts in Swamp of Sorrows (plus a small outpost), Barrens getting cut in two, and many new spots there, plus a new jungle, Stonetalon getting quite redecorated as was Badlands...

So yeah. Barely touched. They put a road. The story that goes with it isn't even in Dustwallow.

Ol' Grumpy and the grimoire of gear inflation {WoW}

Nov 8th 2011 9:36PM Just an idea i had...

But i think Blizz ought to consider how much effect heroic raid gear is having on stat inflation. Here's what i thought:

What if heroic gear only had ~slightly~ better stats that the regular raid gear, but keeping a different color. And by slightly, i mean like... maybe a 10 stat difference at max. It would keep the challenge of the heroic mode, the gear ~is~ an upgrade (but barely) and the gear will still have the "Look at me i'm uber" aspect about it by having a different color, and the annotation "Heroic" to it.

There's something else i'm having a hard time conveying with this... i hope i can do it by addressing it directly. The heroic modes (with this idea) would stay as difficult as they are now, compared to the regular, and not make them easier just because they drop gear with lesser stats. This is to keep them challenging to those that feel the game is too easy.

In other words, your heroic gear will not allow you to breeze through heroic raids just because you're all heroic geared. You will still have a hard time, but your gear will allow you to say "I've been there. I've done that. Many times."

I hope this idea makes sense, the way i described it.

Gold Capped: Alchemy specializations overhauled in patch 4.3 {WoW}

Nov 7th 2011 2:22PM Quests to get to 68.

I like to mix dungeons and quests, with more quests at that stage, because the same dungeon over and over doesn't interest me.

Oh, and transmuting gear. Some quests there have some nice stuff.
