Apr 9th 2008 2:55PM As a joke, I created a female blood elf mage named Klamidya. I rather enjoyed playing a mage, kept her leveling up, and have only been reported once. Blizz banned me for a few hours from logging back on, said I would be forced to change the name, but never did. She is now 70 and nearing exalted rep with most factions.
It generates a few giggles when I do a random group for an instance run.
And yes, I'm on a PvP server.

Oh, whatever. You get the point.
Feb 23rd 2007 1:40PM Personally, I think it's a shame they fixed the "bug". If it's mechanical and the ability to control such things exists, then you should be allowed to do it, at least for some period of time. It shows creativity and ingenuity in using what Blizz has given.
I'm kind of sad that I didn't think of attempting to take control of a Fel Reaver in HFP and wreak some havoc on the Alliance there. The so-called truce that seemed to be in place upon release of BC has quickly gone away.

So, if I buy now, in the next 30 minutes, do I get a free set of Ginsu Knives or a replica Donald Trump hair piece?
If so, I'm in!
And this guy is making fun of Rosie? Wow...
Feb 1st 2007 10:12AM Using Shadow Word: Death to tag mobs? That's just plain stupid because you'll take insta-damage from it. Instead, you should vampiric embrace to tag, mind flay or Shadow Word: Pain to tag them if you want something quick.
I'm loving shadow word death because it's a quick way to end a fight with something and get Spirit Tap going. With my gear and shadow build, I can Shadow Word: Death for over 1000 consistently and often over 1700 crit.
It's not the best new talent or ability out there but if you're shadow spec'd, it's a great way to end a fight and if you've tossed a vampiric embrace on something, it's an easy heal.
Now if they would just up the stats on vampiric touch a bit. 5% just isn't much, even with the shadow damage that spell causes.
Jan 29th 2007 1:22PM All a matter of personal preference. My troll priest is 100% shadow and I will likely put some talent points in the 64-70 level up in wand specialization or something on the discipline tab. I purposely leveled as a shadow priest because it was far easier than being holy to do the occasional instance run and serve as the healer. I had friends with 60s run me through SM and other instances where it was possible.
I know a really good holy priest who absolutely loves healing and isn't about doing damage - and she's a damn good healer. Me? Not so good at healing and don't find it that fun.
Now, if we could just get something like a free mount via a quest chain like warlocks do or have the ability to get pets of some type (other than that silly shadow fiend thing by way of talent tree), it would make more sense since I think a priest (particularly a holy one) is the toughest class to level.
Jan 16th 2007 10:18AM This was the fat pimply guy who served as the inspiration for "Make Love Not Warcraft".
Dec 11th 2006 9:07AM The frustration I was trying to convey was that they (Blizzard) created a virtual world that has some rules and allows other situations to be exploited. This guild was being highly creative and frankly quite clever in exploiting something in game. If the opposing faction has a big problem with it, get off a PvP server. Period.
But, what gets me is that Blizzard decides to intervene on their in a situation like this, but when their own hardware failures cause a server to crash or partially crash (as has been the case a LOT lately) and players end up losing items in inventory, don't get battleground marks they worked hard to earn because the battleground crashes as it closes, Blizzard just offers a boilerplate answer that they can do nothing about it. Pure crap. If you pay $180 a year for a stupid game, you expect a minimum of service that isn't being provided. That's what frustrates me about GM involvement in one cleverly-planned prank and non-involvement in real, in-game issues due to inadequate hardware and support behind it all.
Dec 10th 2006 9:25PM It's too bad this is the ONLY time a GM gets involved and actually DOES anything - and frankly those guys were playing by the rules. I lost out on a TON of AV marks today because the servers kept crashing. GM reponse: We cannot restore battlegrond marks. Thank you and safe travels in Azeroth.
So, a guild gets creative, albeit a bit vindictive and the GMs stop the fun but when it's due to hardware inefficiencies due to them putting out a bug-ridden crap patch they do nothing?
I think I want my $15/month back.
Dec 8th 2006 3:57PM Obviously, the attempt was to repair the damage created by offering an open forum for anyone and everyone to rant about everything NOT related to looking for a group. I mean, really, who enjoyed reading all the stupid Chuck Norris crap and comments about everyone's mother in the prior LFG channel? I usually turned it off until I needed to find a group.
The new solution would probably work if you could specify what classes and/or levels you wanted in your group rather than a simple auto-join where you could end up with three warriors in a 5 man dungeon group. They just need to refine the options a little and I guarantee folks will start using it once they get a piece or two of epic PvP armor and the battlegrounds get old and monotonous.
