Nov 27th 2009 3:36AM I multiboxed a whole lot of players through the RaF system, and here is warning that you should take into consideration :
Do NOT use +xp heirloom items. If you do, your character will gain many more levels, and in the end you'll end up doing red quests for your recruit that will be grey to you, thus resulting in a loss of time for you. And since you generally both level up to the level cap of 60, you might as well do it together all the way. So no Heirloom and you'll be fine.
Jun 10th 2009 8:50AM Confirmed NOT working anymore on EU servers. I went through the "Redeem" button, it said I would receive my battle bot anytime soon, but I got nothing.
Unless someone else from EU says that it still works, don't bother.
May 20th 2009 4:03AM I'm sorry but I just can't seem to love the new idea.
The website name just sucks. Sure, you'll attract more people and look more official. But you've just lost an IDENTITY.
I just loved it when my guildies asked me how I knew about all the upcoming changes when they didn't. I just replied "Nothing special, just reading Wowinsider a couple time a day" like it was normal. In France, very very few players actually read english-speaking blogs (and the most popular wow-related French blog ain't no good). So this made me special.
From now on I'll just answer "Nothing special, just read this on wow.com". They'll reply "Oh, it appeared on the official website ? Must be old news then."
Honnestly, a "WoW.com - Formerly WoW Insider" as the website logo would have been great. For a couple of months, at least, just so you can LEGITIMATE the change towards your readers.
Sure, there will be the very same news from the very same people. But the name of the endeavour matters to me.
I don't like the new design either. But I won't blame you for this, since it's just my personnal opinion and it seems a lot of people like the new layout. So it's ok, I don't mind.
But please. For the love of Elune. Or whoever. For the love of your beloved readers. PLEASE put a "formerly WoW Insider" somewhere.
May 15th 2009 8:59AM Meaning they would have to give an actual form to ALL the grey items ? You're just dreaming.
I never heard Blizzard saying they were considering housing, and it seems impossible to conceive in this game.
My guess is that if you heard this somewhere, then it was just an attempt from Blizzard to make you stay longer... and longer... to wait patiently for something that will never come.
May 14th 2009 3:53AM I've got to agree there, Hogger might be the rea protagonist, at least Alliance-side.
In the very end of the very last dungeon of the very last patch after the very last expansion of the game, Hogger will be standing with 500 million HP. And you'll be given lvl 10 humans as "vehicles" to defeat him.
Though it is obvious that Hogger is currently jusy Medivh's spy (then why else would he be strolling around no other than Stormwind ?), he is still the most fearsome character in the World of Warcraft.
May 13th 2009 9:43AM You'd miss the BRD key :)
Apr 30th 2009 4:20AM This guy just Data Drained the mobs. And went off to find the Key of the Twilight !
Helba is behind this.
Apr 30th 2009 4:13AM Uh. I was a big fan of the Update All feature. Maybe I'll pay the $30... damn, this is frustrating.
