Breakfast Topic: That first WoW trailer no one seems to remember {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 10:58AM What makes you think no one remembers this???? Most of my class/race combinations were based off this video :)

Spiritual Guidance: Top healing trinkets for priests {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 2:03AM Heroic Jaw, at least for druids, I believe is supposed to be BIS before heroic DS... I may have read that based on theorycraft before these trinkets were on live tho so it might have changed.

My raid finally had our first one drop on our very last night in FL :) so I'll be using that one for a while...

Good to know the healing proc one is actually decent this tier. Eye of Blazing Power was more like 2% of my heals when I was using it.

The Queue: BlizzCon was really fun {WoW}

Oct 28th 2011 2:18PM For anyone who thinks leveling goes too quick or that you outlevel content... without guild xp bonus and heirlooms and rested xp, I've done 7 zones completely without "outleveling" them, proof:

Oct 28th 2011 1:47PM The time required is based on my own estimations of a noob. The idea that people get bored of the leveling game and want to see more interesting stuff is based on actual experiences my friends have had with the game. Yes I agree that there's a lot to learn at max level, but the leveling game does absolutely nothing to teach you any of that.

Oct 28th 2011 11:06AM Does anyone else feel like 140+ hours to get your first toon to max level is a bit ridiculous? I've been playing a character with no heirlooms and minimal reset xp and it's such a grind, no wonder none of my friends have been able to get into the game. There's a world of great stuff if they can get to max level, but it's such a huge barrier to entry in the game, I feel like it's an outdated relic from MMOs of the past.

WoW Rookie: So you know nothing about WoW {WoW}

Oct 14th 2011 9:22AM I always explain that WoW is a bunch of games rolled into one, then give a 1 sentence description of each: leveling, raiding, 5mans, arena, battlegrounds, achievement-collecting, roleplaying. Most people do multiples or all of these, and they experience them as multiple classes and roles, which each have pretty unique gameplay.

Then I explain that the critical flaw with WoW, imo, is that in order to seriously do any of the games other than the leveling game, you have to invest 100+ hours just to get to level 85 first :(

Ready Check: Looking into DKP loot systems {WoW}

Sep 24th 2011 1:56AM epgp ftw. has worked great for us.

Gold Capped: Warcraft needs a new gold sink, and it needs it yesterday {WoW}

Congratulations, you have just discovered why the US economy is in the shitter.
