Blizzard further explains the new Scroll of Resurrection {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 1:18AM Didn't you get the Onyxia minipet simply for logging into the game on the 5th anniversary? Which we only got because we had active subscriptions, unlike my friends who were in-and-out. Sure, there's not a new minipet every year, last year was a scroll that gave an xp boost to leveling. Just saying, I think that there are small tokens out there, they're just given on WoW's anniversary and not your anniversary of being subscribed.

The OverAchiever: Got 100,000+ gold handy? {WoW}

The OverAchiever: Got 100,000+ gold handy? {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 11:57PM They have nerfed the DMF rep grind, as you can get rep from the monthly profession quests and a little bit from the daily game quests too. The biggest rep boost comes from the random dungeon drops that you can turn in once per month. I found all but 1 of them between 50-200g and got a huge chunk of reputation without having to turn in a deck. Bad part is that you can only turn in one series per month (ie, Monstrous Egg once and Adventurer's Journal once... etc) where the decks you can make and turn in as many as you can manage to make

How to make gold on a small realm {WoW}

Rumble Between the Junglers: How the DotA fight began {WoW}

Feb 18th 2012 3:03AM third fun fact: Article authors on the site have been known to update their articles based on information from commenters, so it's not unheard of. Without an "edited" tag we may not know whether or not the information was there originally or post-comment.

Gold Capped: Tracking the most frequently bought and sold items {WoW}

Jan 16th 2012 11:54PM The problem with including argent tournament pets is that their price increases with the scarcity of players willing to farm the seals required to buy them. Their inflation rate, taken separately, would be quite high, given how the AT became a ghost town once the next expansion was released. Wouldn't that skew the rest of the data?

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 4:35PM Not every guild has a "friends and family" status, nor should they have to. Imo, since her stated goal was to raid with her husband, being put on a F&F non-raiding capacity would probably have caused problems in the guild - for any number of reasons, including the possibility of the wife not understanding why she could be in the guild but not raid.

"Is their goal to raid well and do better as a member of the team? Or is their goal to raid alongside their spouse, using the team as a medium for that?"

What a perfect way to put it. It sounds to me like her goal is to raid with her husband, not necessarily raid for the sake of raiding and progression and the team.

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 4:26PM I had a similar reaction to yours, that perhaps the wife does not understand the reluctance of a top raiding guild to accept a new level 85 with no prior raiding experience, albeit a good ilevel and willingness to learn, she seemed pretty hard hit about it.

Also, I get the feeling that perhaps the husband is ok spending time with her on a casual basis, but when she brings raiding into the mix, it's like she is encroaching on "HIS" thing. Obviously he must be a good raider to be in one of the top guilds on their server, and perhaps the idea of raiding with a less skilled group doesn't sound like fun, it sounds like WORK and misery. After all, she joined his game, and now that she wants to make a raiding guild, maybe there's this feeling that she is trying to take it (the wow experience) over.?

Frankly, I also agree with the others who surmised that there was a breakdown in communication here. He only pulled his alt from her guild when she wanted him to raid with her. There has got to be more to it, I bet the relationship was already on rocky ground as it was, and alot of rocky ground has it's roots in communication.

Drama Mamas: WoW vs. relationship {WoW}

Oct 17th 2011 10:58PM I have been on the recieving end of this EXACT SAME SITUATION. Thankfully, it has had a good ending.

We used parental controls for a while. But what PC are good for is a TEMPORARY measure to help you learn your own self control. Like with most addictions, the only real changes will come from inside, and as many recovered addicts will confirm, the easiest way to do that is to avoid the addiction - even the temptation - altogether. Your Girlfriend cannot and should not have to act in place of your mother or watchdog. She has the right to say no, she doesn't even want to try.

Honestly, it was very very very hard to trust the Significant Other when he said that things were changed, that important life responsibilities wouldn't be neglected. He said that before (and meant it too! right up until something really important was ignored), but it is a burden of trust that, if there is even one slipup there's real and serious consequences not just to you but to the significant other too. You miss WoW, and that's real. You miss playing WoW with your girlfriend, and that's real too. But it sounds like its safer to pick something else, something short, something with a definite end, something that you can't easily go off and solo play without her, if that makes sense.

Don't jeopardize the good thing you've got going. Even my "happy ending" was full of a crap load of heartbreak, frustration, and anguish along the way. Sometimes makes me wonder if it was worth it.
