Jun 30th 2011 11:07AM I think it's great. I for one sent a recruit-a-friend trial to my second email address to start fast tracking alts on my new server to level 20. Worked like a charm. 300% XP bonus to level 20?? Yes, please.
May 10th 2011 11:13AM I would love to win a set! Please please please. For the love of Jaina Proodmoore, pick me!

They left the guild not long after. Apparently, I am also a dumbass."
This had me in tears laughing. Thank you.

Feb 24th 2011 11:25AM So exciting! I love that Blizzard is re-purposing old dungeons!!
Oct 28th 2010 2:37PM If I have a rare item, I have every right in this world to put it in the auction house at whatever price I want. If you don't want to pay my price for the item...the don't. It's that simple. If I decide to travel all over Azeroth and collect recipes from the various vendors...and I sell them for 500% markup for my time...that's my prerogative. If you don't want to pay the markup...don't. I do not see the big deal.
Jun 2nd 2010 4:18PM I don't really see that Blizzard is giving an advantage to players that pay for this. You're paying for convenience. That's about it. Now I can view auctions from my phone or web browser without starting up wow. Big deal. That doesn't give me anymore of a game advantage than someone else who camps the auction house. Same thing, really. With that being said... I do agree that this should be a free service.
I was just thinking today that I am getting micro-transactioned to death these days. $3 for xbox live a month. $9 for unlimited netflix streaming. $2 for Ventrillo. You get the point. The list goes on.
May 26th 2010 11:09AM Here's the problem... They will never make Stockades loot-rich because it's too easy to farm. So, the most you'll ever get is wool. Which is fine. Second, if they make it too much of a challenge... groups will wipe...and then have to do that dreadful corpse run from the graveyard. Too painful. As much as I hate to say it, I think its design serves it's purpose.
With the level cap at 80 (and soon to be 85), Blizzard is doing everything they can to help you level up as quickly as possible (heirloom gear, refer a friend, dungeon finder, etc.) to get to end-game content. Having groups stall on a lowbie dungeon doesn't really help anyone...if anything it would most likely cause unnecessary frustration. Stockades is just a blip on the dungeon radar that quickly passes by as you level up.
May 26th 2010 10:56AM I would say goodbye to Wailing Caverns in a heartbeat.
May 10th 2010 2:28PM I think Blizzard is making it too complicated by having each type of pet have unique abilities. As it's been pointed out... people just figure out which pet has the high dps (wolves at the moment) and use that in every dungeon. What Bliz should do is have the special abilities implemented in the pet talent trees so that different pets could obtain the same buffs. They could just call "furious howl" something less specific...like furious attack or whatever... and make it one of the options for all of the ferocious pet's talent build. If all the ferocity pets had that ability (or whatever specific buff that you like)...you could get the same result with more variety in the game. Just my two copper.
