Oct 21st 2010 2:21PM Nagrand. It was just so picturesque. And it had a little bit of everything in it. Its still one of my favorite zones. But I readily agree that taking the boat from Menethil Harbor to Northrend is one of the better designed intros in the game. Gorgeous.

Aug 25th 2010 8:03PM If you have an engineer you can turn them into bronze tubes. Folks doing quests in Darkshire always need them for the quest to build that guy a telescope and you can probably even turn a profit at it.
Aug 18th 2010 3:43PM I'm in a casual raiding guild full of people who could probably be in the more hardcore guilds... but frankly we just don't want the bother. If a raid doesn't get off the ground, there's always next week. The guild almost fell apart due to the already mentioned transition phase towards the end of BC where you moved from 10 man raids to 25 man raids. We had about 15 solid raiders so we needed bodies. And that's what we got, bodies. They would only show up for raids and nothing else. They would do nothing but raids to improve their gear. No heroics, no crafting, no rep grinding, nothing. And this caused a clear divide in the guild between those who worked and those who didn't. But we kept things more or less together until Wrath. Then it just fell apart. Most of the old guard got tired of dragging folks through raids on 25 man content who were unappreciative and quite frankly jerks. We wanted to pull back and just do 10 mans with people we got along with and enjoyed the company of. This caused those who wanted to do 25 man to get a tad snippy. A good chunk of the old guard, myself included, were either getting ready to leave or had already left the guild when a free server transfer came up. The 25 man raiders left to form a new guild on the new server and things quickly calmed down. We found this best way to go forward was to no longer look for a shaman healer or a ranged dps or whatever slot you want to fill. We recruit people. We've all got enough alts that quite frankly we can make just about anything you have work. In a casual guild, if you want it to work, that's what you have to do. Classes you can work around. People being assholes you can't.

Apr 7th 2010 5:31PM And yet there's Arthas in a 5 man. What do you call that? Slumming it with the lowbies? By the rules of the contest, which as the previous replier pointed out you didn't do, this one isn't close. Unlike Eadric and his impotent AoE, Tyrannus has Rimefang who will not only do massive AoE damage but greatly slow the progress of the large lumbering aboms as they have to cross the ice slicks. This is Tyrannus in a laugher.
Mar 31st 2010 8:16PM Eadric's AoE really doesn't do damage, its main effect is stunning targets stupid enough to face him within the range of the AoE. At first glance, mindless undead would fall into this category. However, the mindless undead are under the control of the Lich King who is far enough away to remove himself from the effects of the spell, but close enough to see Eadric's cast bar and tell his minions "Face me" followed by "Kill him" once the spell is done. That pretty much eliminates Eadric's AoE and whatever slim to none chance he had at winning this fight. So to answer Eadric's eventual question "May I run away now?", the answer is no.
Lich King wins by 3rd wall or sooner. Much sooner if Jaina realizes her only hope is Eadric. I'm thinking she flings herself off the cliff at that point.
Jan 15th 2010 9:59PM I'm sorry, but LW, for me, is the single biggest money maker in the game. Between my wife and we have every single profession covered (with extras in inscription and alchemy) and I make an embarrassing amount off of LW. You buy epic patterns (no need to farm them in an instance and LW patterns are far, far cheaper than either tailoring or BS) and you can easily buy or farm the arctic furs necessary to make the items. BS and tailoring are extremely limited in this as you have to contend with cooldowns for your ingredients. And at this stage of the game, crusader orbs are fairly inexpensive. Depending on the cycle of the market, I can make anywhere from 2 to 3k gold profit on each LW item I make. I don't bother making leg enchants anymore as the return on them vs the going rate of arctic furs doesn't make sense for me to even bother. Also, while darkmoon greatness cards still sell for a decent amount of money, eternal lifes have gone up so much in price as to render trying to make batches of them on your own worthless, unless you want to farm for herbs for hours and hours on end just for the eternals. I should know, I used to do batches of them. Oh for the days of 3 gold eternal lifes.
