Hunters to get Stampede in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 2:31PM Think of all the combinations of pets in the stables that could look really cool. That alone I think will make it different enough from the rumored warlock ability (summon 5 imps for a short amount of time).

Patch 4.3 5-man bosses in 5 seconds or less {WoW}

Nov 29th 2011 1:11PM Great info! I think I'm going to macro these.

The Queue: Layoffs {WoW}

Nov 10th 2011 11:39AM First off, I agree with much of what you are saying. It is very true there has been a decline in the behaviour of people using the LFD tool.
I don't think that the solution to the problem is anything Blizzard can do. It really is up to individuals to uphold the "professionalism" most of us find lacking in LFD. This means being courteous and looking out for other members of the group. As a tank, make sure everyone is ready before pulling. If you have quests, share them. If you have a gathering profession, see if others in the group do as well and work out a way of dividing up the spoils. If you are DPS, don’t pull and don’t pull off the tank.
I have recently been leveling a resto druid (loving how they heal) and using the LFD tool for almost the entire process. I have been in a lot of crappy groups. It can be incredibly frustrating and many times you just want to give up. But I make sure when I enter a group to say hi. I try to give warning if I’m low on mana or need to switch specs (I do quests a bit when not in LFD so might start in feral DPS spec).
Just recently I ran into a tank who was just learning. He was doing ok, but not great. There were certainly things he needed to work on to be a better tank. But I worked with him and he was very grateful for the help.
It is up to each of us to try and make the group a good group. If we can make the group a good experience for the person then they can clearly see when they are not in a good group. If we give up then the bad attitude wins and everyone looses. Yes, it’s a tough battle. Yes you will be frustrated. And yes you will want to give up. Everyone once and a while though, you will run into other s with the same attitude and it is a great experience.

The Classifieds: Beat the heat with the Ironman Instancing Challenge {WoW}

Jun 9th 2010 3:19PM I don't see anywhere what level your character is supposed to be for the ironman challenge. Ardougne's post seems to suggest level 15, but there is no level mentioned in the wow.com post

WoW Fifth Anniversary Sweepstakes {WoW}

Nov 5th 2009 10:22AM Totally apologize for the previous wall of text. It looked good in word, but the formatting got buggered up along the way.

WoW Fifth Anniversary Sweepstakes {WoW}

Nov 5th 2009 10:15AM You are completely misinterpreting the issue here. Blizzard is not trying to exclude ANYONE. I’m sure they would be more than happy to include every location where they have wow subscribers. In fact, I’m sure they would prefer it that way. Unfortunately, many countries have laws that prevent this kind of contest (for a variety of reasons, many of which are probably pretty stupid); THAT is why they are ineligible.
Now you could argue that given those restrictions, then you shouldn’t hold contests like that, but I don’t think you’ll get a full consensus on that either. These sorts of contest happen all the time all over the world and there are always geographical restrictions. The mountain dew contest a while back was exclusive to the US I believe. I’m in Canada and was unable to participate. Oh well. I mean it might be a bit disappointing but its not the end of the world.
True, the prizes here are more drool worthy (I would love one of those steins even though I don’t drink), but don’t go pointing your fingers at Blizzard. There is nothing they can do about it, short of not have contests like that.
If you are truly upset about it, I’d suggest doing a bit of research and find out why your country (or part of your country like mine), has an issue about. That is, what law or laws are preventing contests like this. Then get in touch with your representative and complain. It probably won’t do any good, but at least its more constructive and the fingers are pointed in the right direction.
