The Queue: A fel dilemma {WoW}

Apr 6th 2011 12:55PM Sorry Alex, even you are not immune to downrating.

Yes druids are tied heavily into moon magic. Druid's class color is orange though, mage's class color is light blue and the moon mark is light blue. It is just as valid argument as anything else.

At the end of the day it's less about what makes sense and more about what is accepted. Moon is agreed to be polymorph by well over 90% of the playerbase. This is coming from a playerbase that cannot agree on ANYTHING other than that Frost Mages are overpowered.

It's an argument not worth trying to stand up for.

Apr 6th 2011 12:13PM Depends Puntable. I'm a tank, and I would find it very annoying if a DPS felt the need to run around marking mobs for me. You're a complete stranger, not a raid leader in my guild.

I would ask you politely to stop and follow my marks, and hopefully you would do that.

I trust my own marks. I mark based on the duration of the CC, the ease of reapplying, the judged competency of various party members, the danger of the mob, whether it LoSes easily, and whether it is going to be instantly broken once people start AOE spamming like they are still playing Wrath.

There's a good chance you are marking mobs differently from what I would have marked them, and may not be taking into account the entire party. Tanks tend to be tanks because they tend to be control freaks, and tanking is 90% controlling chaos, and 10% masochism.

Cannot be cast while silenced.

Yeah that's confusing when it happens to you once in a blue moon and you can't figure out why you are unable to attack. Warrior no understand what silence mean? WARRIOR YELL IN YOUR FACE.

Apr 6th 2011 11:51AM I find it interesting how often people vary on the subject. For me, the only ones which are almost universally set in stone are.

Star = Sap
Square = Trap
Moon = Sheep

On rare occasions when I come across trap immune or poly immune mobs and have double hunter/mage in the raid, I'll use square/moon for the wrong class. It's an infrequent exception to the rule.

As for the rest... Purple, Orange, and Green are used for whatever needs them depending on raid makeup. I tend to gravitate towards Purple for Warlocks and Green for Shamans. I can count the number of times I've used Orange on one hand.

Apr 4th 2011 6:51AM It's not hard to see why in retrospect.

If you remove the raid mounts after a certain amount of time for every tier, you'll ultimately wind up giving them almost exclusively to the top 5% (or whatever) of raiders over and over, with very little variation each tier.

The current model works much better. Where the top 5% are sporting the newest and hottest drakes, and the next 20% or so can be sporting the almost newest drakes, and the rest of the playerbase can be riding around on their Ironbound Proto Drake that they only got this February, but are still very happy and excited about anyway.

15 Minutes of Fame: Tom Howgego of El's Extreme Anglin', part 2 {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2011 10:10AM Actually for that matter, it's reasonably easy to identify the transsexual woman too, at least the ones who are pre-transition. They tend to be an awkward mixture of both -- a bit of trying too hard out of a desperate desire to have their gender acknowledged in a way that it is not yet acknowledge in real life. They tend to overcompensate and come off as awkwardly excessively feminine.

On the other hand, I've never been able to identify a transsexual who was over 2 years full time unless they told me outright. Two years real life full time is about how long it takes to get past that awkward overcompensating stage for most women, and they start to relax and be themselves.

Respect. There is no reason not to give it.

Apr 3rd 2011 9:59AM Pft, you don't need Vent to tell. It's pretty easy.

Women online tend to act like women.

Wo"men" online tend to act like men who are pretending to be women.

The difference really isn't that subtle. If it's running around going "teehee" and flirting with everything it can and going "whoops, sorry I wiped, it was because I'm a girl, teehee, and you can't get angry at me because I'm all cute and I flirted with you." That's a guy.

Actual women who play WoW, with few exceptions, want to play on their own enjoyment, their own merit, and build friendships with other players... not whore their way to epics.

Blizzard comments on Outland and Northrend leveling in Cataclysm {WoW}

Mar 31st 2011 9:29PM It is likely me Drakkenfyre. I have not seen another person advocating that solution, and every once in a while I mention it in different locations.

Blizzard comments on Outland and Northrend leveling in Cataclysm {WoW}

Mar 31st 2011 8:43PM I've often contemplated if an easier solution to this would be to adjust the EXP and the mob/quest level ranges so that both Outlands AND Northrend are level 60-80 zones.

This would give you reason to go questing beyond just HFP and Nagrand in Outlands, and Howling Fjord, Borean Tundra, and Dragonblight in Northrend (Or at least those are the zones I normally do).

And it will give you the ability to skip or mix and match zones between the two continents. Leveling is less frustrating when you have the option to chose between 2 different zones for each level range to go visit.
