Oct 23rd 2006 12:06PM I totally agree with Dehner, #7. I would never, ever roll a character on a PvP server, because levelling to 60 is hard enough without harrassment, and ruining other people's gameplay isn't a motivation for me. Really, why else would you roll on a PvP server? I'm sure that there are players out there who would never gank a lower-level player, and good for them, but tbh I would assume the majority pick PvP servers because they like griefing.
Oct 20th 2006 1:28AM Damn. That means that I'm faced with going up those last few levels, and doing attunement quests, in pickup groups. So much for getting her to 60 before the expansion hits. :( After BC comes out, there's too much that I want to do with my main, and I want to start levelling a Draenei. Poor lost Kitsunecho - no Blizz love for us.
Oct 11th 2006 12:21PM I'm presently bored with raiding, although I've never become bored with the game. I look forward to having new starting areas to explore, but even given that I've seen the present starting area content so damned many times, I still love playing new alts. Along with my 60 lock, I have a hunter who has been stuck at 52-53, simply because I like her and I hate the thought of taking her to 60 and then saying "now what?" The thought of starting ZG and BWL again with a new 60 just leaves me cold. We're going to start Naxx soon, and I'm excited about that...but eventually I'll be as bored with Naxx as I am with AQ40.
But bored with WoW in general? Not a chance. :)
Oct 9th 2006 7:03AM I tend to mainly solo while levelling, so I've never seen SFK, Uldaman, Gnomeragan, and I finally just did a run through Mauradon with some 60 guildmates just to pick up some nature resist gear - I'd never actually done that as an instance, either.
Actually, I finally killed Hogger for the first time with a new alt a few months ago...the staple of jokes, the first shared experience for anyone playing humans, and I'd never killed him. Can you believe that?
Sep 26th 2006 11:52AM Yaay for women, especially older women, who play WoW! :D
Sep 26th 2006 9:18AM Hey. :)
I'm an American now permanently resident in the UK. I work as a web developer, presently as project manager on a new social-networking startup. I'm also an artist and photographer, I have a horse and compete in dressage, and I play waaaaaay too much WoW. Along with a level 60 warlock on Aggramar, I have severe alt-itis, and have alts ranging from level 52 on down on multiple servers. I read this site every morning without fail - keep up the great work!
Sep 22nd 2006 7:49AM As a warlock, I handle my own healing, but I do appreciate healers who understand the warlock class and know that much of our gear has +stamina rather than +intellect for a reason...we have to lifetap to replace mana. Anyone who says that a lock should sit out part of a fight and eat just doesn't understand how effective a lock can be when DoT'ing and DPSing. Lifetap, for me, doesn't replace health fast enough. If I had to sit out part of every fight, my damage levels would drop drastically. It depends on the fight, though - if it's not a fight where locks are essential, then I handle my own healing. If it's something like Battleguard Sartura, where all locks are on the boss, spamming her with searing pain, or anywhere where you're needed for crowd control, then keeping locks up is important. In our guild, druids tend to supplement healing on locks, etc., while the priests are healing tanks and other essential members. And personally, I always make sure I have plenty of bandages and health pots.
Sep 21st 2006 6:03AM What lead to the post on MBAzeroth was my experience in wanting to try a roleplaying server, and paying to move two alts there. It's a bit tough, obviously, to RP all by your lonesome, so I needed to *gasp* initiate contact with other people. I just couldn't do it. I could no more walk up to someone in front of the AH in IF and strike up a conversation, than I could walk up to a stranger in a bar in real life. I'm not socially inept, mind you - I'm great in groups of people I know even slightly. But I don't feel comfortable with people I don't know, and that evidently translates to in-game (along with my total lack of any sense of direction, much to my surprise). Makes it a bit tough to roleplay, so those alts are feeling very left out. :/
Sep 21st 2006 2:03AM Mor'Ladim, definitely. In fact, once I was high enough level to return and kill him, not only did I do that but I also danced on his corpse...small payment for all the random gankage experienced by all the low levels in Raven Hill.
Aug 9th 2006 10:56AM These have been covered above, but definitely:
1. People who skin my kills without waiting or asking
2. Lazy people asking for summons
3. People refusing to let you decline a duel
4. People who hide behind something and wait until I've cleared most of the mobs, then rush in to loot the chest while I'm taking on the last one
5. Blizzard, please make a global /idiotchat channel so all of the illiterates presently in LFG can go and chat in there, please, please, please...
