Aug 19th 2009 1:56PM For whoever downrated me: you try listening to that sound over and over again. I don't mind hearing it DURING combat because combat is that: combat. So there's a mix of sounds.
But someone inherently spamming it over and over and over just for the sound effect starts to really wear on your ears, much less when you're calmly perusing the AH in a city and then some idle attention-deficit rogue just comes and stands in the crowd clicking that ability over and over. It's like the Wind Up Train but worse-there's no Smasher.
Sure I can just turn my game sound off/down but I happen to LIKE hearing the environmental sound and other things in game and don't feel like listening to outside music. Just not hearing the same sound effect over and over spammed with the intention of pissing off every other player in the vicinity.
Aug 19th 2009 11:52AM Now if only they'd remove or make a way for me NOT to have to hear the goddamn sound effect that ability plays EVERY TIME some idle rogue spams the damn thing in a Raid or in a main city in the AH that would be very awesome.
And yes I have raid-kicked rogues who when idle, keep spamming it over and over. It's very irritating.
Aug 17th 2009 3:44PM Cancer is such a terrible disease-stealing the life and soul away from us all. I personally have no experience with anyone I know suffering from this terrible ailment but I couldn't help but tear up and have to stifle a sob here in work when I came upon this well-written piece of work. It's hard to carry on when someone/thing is lashed away from you like this but be strong. It amazes me when even from this game: good and great things come.
Take strength from your friends and family and stand tall. From what you've told us and how she was such a free spirit, I think she'd be quite disappointed to see you mourn and bow your head. :) And we don't wanna disappoint mom now would we?! :)
At least she's somewhere safe and warm now. Where no disease can touch, no pain can be felt and no sorrow be heard. She is in the arms of the greatest Spirit Healer of them all now. She is at peace.
Strength and Honor indeed friend. Even across this divide of technology called the Internet and this communication text medium...know today that a stranger has wept and shed a tear and a given a salute for woman he has never met nor known once. Peace and strength be with you David and may nothing but good things follow. Amen.
Aug 10th 2009 11:31AM Times like this, I'm glad I'm Frost.
Yes we are the wayward children, still clutching fiercely to our spec and praying for a day when we will be heard and answered.
That plus I am terrible at Fire/Arcane spec. :(
Aug 7th 2009 10:08AM Well you KNOW this would have happened. At the twilight of BC when the HP nerf across the board happened. Frickin Arcane Dust cost more than Void Crystals which went for 10g a full stack. Guilds and groups were DEing gear left and right. Last night on the AH on my server, there were 12 pages of Abyss Crystals going for 3g each. I bought and filled up. Raiding guilds dumped their entire supplies of Frozen and Runed Orbs before the market went downhill. There were groups for ToC in LFG stating strictly that they were going on farming runs and they'd run people through and you'd only be allowed 'X' amount of loot because they were shard farming.
Welcome to the WoW economy. Patches and expansions mean drastic changes in prices. Hell, the BLUE gems on the AH needed to do the transmutes cost more than the brand new raw Epic gems.
Aug 7th 2009 9:45AM Thoughts on this new instance:
-Haven't tried the raid yet. Nobody can leave the 5man alone long enough in guild for us to put together a 10man to play it. :P
-The gear's AWESOME. Note that you can go in at 78 and start picking up your 80 stuff. Been doing that on my warrior since all of the guild's tanks and DPS are mainly chasing the trinkets and 1 or 2 pieces of iL200 gear that they didn't get out of Naxx. Dinged 80 last night and already had 4 fresh Arms pieces and ready for the Naxx farm this weekend.
-I. hate. Lana. COME ON, why does she get AOE poison?? Wtf is that crap.
-That hunter. Lightning arrows...wow. OP.
-That Shaman NPC is a terrible character. No purges? No Earth Shock? Reroll or l2p Draenai boy! The fight is probably trivialized by the fact that he usually dies first and my Mortal Strike on him never falls off.
-Confessor is a very awesome fight. Note that if you take too long and your DPS is terri-bad, she can actually summon a second memory. Hilarity when it happens. We got 2x Hogger one night. The world exploded.
-Black Knight the first time had everyone practically cursing over Vent: "WILL YOU JUST DIE ALREADY??!!" Fun fight but it's made so easy by kiting him before ghouls explode. Last phase on heroic just hurts. :(
-I'm glad Blizzard upped the difficulty for the 5man Heroic and the 10man. I consider it the 'intelligence check' for the morons who farm the 5man Norm and still don't know what the hell they're doing.
What I hate:
-Introduction. Please stop talking. People can practically buff, mount up and find a cure for cancer while this guy yaks on.
-The retards. Apparently this instance has dragged the ultimate morons out of the woodwork who think that Paladins need Spirit, that you can do this instance while still clad in OUTLANDS gear (True. We had a rogue who SOMEhow got to 80 without swapping out a single piece of his Outlands gear...) Hunters need cloth SP gear and a Boomkin with an over-inflated ego in crafted Tailoring gear thinks he can pull off an Ulduar geared Paladin and boasts that he could do 15k DPS in it. Lawl. I have met some of the biggest morons in PUGs in the past few days that rival the legendary horror stories of Vanilla WoW. And that's terrifying.
Aug 5th 2009 9:22AM Man last night was hilarious with people trying to raid with all that lag and complaining in Trade of all the problems. That plus I logged off with my paladin in Org, logged back on and found myself standing next to a duplicate of myself. I could even inspect and whisper myself too! So fun. Took screenshots. At least I got hold of one of the new raptor pets and made an easy 1K gold off it. :D Now to profit more!
Aug 4th 2009 12:38PM Geez Allison, are you people up there at WOW even getting a coffee break today? The speed you're churning these out make me think they have you chained to the desks today!
Not that I'm not appreciative mind you. But don't overwork! Awesomely done as always. Can't WAIT to login and see my beautiful new catform.
