Exactly: IF you are a desert tribesman. Which, I dare to say, most of us aren't, thus, those directions are redundant and terribly out of place. We Nordic people aren't some sunstroke-ridden goat-herders, we know how to preserve our food to last, we don't need no religious directions in order to keep us safe from food poisoning and parasites. We don't even need to cut away our foreskins, since we actually WASH our penises.
A jug of strong dark beer and a nice slice of mead-basted, bacon-covered roast duck. And a good serving of meatballs with cream sauce. And maybe some blood pudding, yeah. Eat that, Abraham-lovers! Ah, I forgot... you can't. :-P
Sep 15th 2010 8:46AM Children over 13 can be surprisingly mature sometimes. After all, in many cultures you are considered mature when you hit puberty. Only some 50 years ago it was quite common for kids to start working when they hit the age of 15.
I don't really care how old you are, as long as you can type in coherent sequences and are able to carry your own weight.
Sep 13th 2010 6:37AM I suppose they just evolved from animals. Just like quillboars, murlocs, silithid and lobstermen.
Sep 13th 2010 6:32AM Actually, it's their freakish laughter that makes them so repulsive.
They normally look kinda cute (except for that one face that looks like Eminem's evil me when hairless). But whenever they start laughing, you suddenly feel like you got to stomp them into bloody pulp. Those monsters.
Sep 13th 2010 6:21AM Of course they look innatural. They're freaking robot mutants! :D
Sep 13th 2010 5:38AM You woulnd't be able to see things on the other side of continent anyway, perspective would prevent that (and the view from the air could be just as well obstructed by client-rendered clouds that appear when you fly high enough, much like Culling of Stratholme fog barrier works).
However, it would be nice to actually see the snowy mountaintops of Dun Morogh from Elwynn, instead of seeing a bunch of blueish polygons that show up and vanish depending on the direction you're looking at. And there is no reason not to see Mount Hyjal while riding through the Barrens. That thing is immense. Just like Teldrassil, which should be a major landmark in the area, clearly visible from any point in Darkshore.
Sep 13th 2010 5:28AM What they need to do is employ an actual real life armor and weapon designer with some heavy experience in swordfighting and medieval blacksmithing. WoW shoulderpads are - and always were - totally ridiculous.
Imagine someone wearing those classic winged and gryphonheaded plate shoulderpads. Now imagine your typical WoW outhouse. Yea, just like that... poor lord Uther went to take a pee in one of those and died of thirst and hunger after getting stuck inside.
As for bare midriff plate and chain armor, I say this. Whoever designed that, he rightfully deserves to get involved in a street brawl and be stabbed in their stomach. After such experience, they might actually realize how stupid an idea it is.
Meanwhile, I suggest you guys to buy and wear a Recruit's shirt (http://www.wowhead.com/item=38/recruits-shirt) that matches nearly every suit of armor while actually covering your vulnerable tummy with a thick piece of leather.
Sep 10th 2010 1:35AM "Also, it appears that if you do not have the Cataclysm expansion, you will not see this ability as trainable -- if you want to fly in the old world, you'll need the new expansion."
^ THIS is the only reason behind the introduction of "Old Weather Flying"... to prevent non-Cataclysm users to fly in the Old World. It's not "We want it to feel special." It's "We want you to pony up your $50 as soon as possible." Isn't it obvious?
Until now, my approach was "When the Cataclysm hits, I'm gonna renew my sub." Now it's "When the Cataclysm hits, I'll be playing something else." Thanks, Blizzard. :-P
Sep 3rd 2010 2:30AM What's Nyhm or Nymh? Google doesn't give any meaningful results outside WoW community.
Aug 29th 2010 8:53AM @sheets_brandon - That's true. However, not buying the expansion means everyone else will outrun you. It's not winning, it's stalling.
Also, not all games have paid expansions. Many even give you free client in order to get you into paying your monthly fee. Some even decided to stop collecting the monthly fee, charging you for your running shoes and ion drinks instead (ah, another bad racing analogy). The point stays: there is no end - and no winner - in a MMORPG race. You may either stall or keep running, but you'll never win.
