Apr 11th 2010 1:32PM I'm compulsively neat in WoW. In real life, I'm not compulsive...I just like things picked up. I have a 2 year old so keeping things organized and neat is a challenge. My bags in WoW are organized. Pots together, food together. I hate switching bags so I use Baudbag. I also use Automaton. It's a small add-on that allows me to sell greys and also add any other items I routinely get that I don't need. I love that it has many uses, including auto-accept or auto-decline invites, etc. My bank alt is just as organized.
My husband, however, is the polar opposite, especially in WoW. He has routinely asked me to go through his stuff and organize it. It baffles me why he needs, at 80, milk from level 10. He rarely throws anything out but I recently converted him to Automaton as well. Finally, he might have 2-3 spaces. Oh and Automaton also fixes automatically. Something he also routinely would forget to do at vendors. Luckily, in real life, he is not quite as disorganized and, dare I say, messy.
I find these type of posts fun and interesting. It just brings home to me, once again, how WoW is as diverse a population as any real country. And that is one of the things that has kept me playing for 5 years now. Even though I take WoWcations, like I and my husband are right now to play another MMORPG in open beta, we always come back.
Mar 16th 2010 9:28AM Does it matter what you write? lol I've been sick at home with a 2 year old with some random virus that gave him hives. AND I've been sick. AND my husband has been sick. Come on...it's seriously cutting into our raid time. LOL J/K
I'd love the loot card but GRATS to anyone but me who gets it. =)
Mar 5th 2010 12:44PM I've played for 5 years now. Some of these are, in my opinion, just courtesy, others are just personal.
1. Never beg for gold or items.
2. Never charge for extra holiday items.
3. Never gank (kill) a player more than 5 levels below me. If they hit first, that's different.
4. Never duel. I have not once...in 5 years. It seems pointless to me.
5. Never wipe out the opposite factions low level guards, npcs..whatever.
6. Never automatically join/accept a group invite. Seriously, you need to talk to me first.
7. Never run arena again. Just not for me.
8. Never go out of my way to save someone who was warned to NOT do X, Y or Z....and does.
9. Never sit on my mount over an NPC or mailbox.
10. Never run around without armor on. Silly, I know but it irritates me. I mean....why?!
Those are probably the top 10. I'm sure there are more if I thought about it. But those are the ones I seem to come across every time I play.
Feb 18th 2010 1:02PM I think it was beautiful and obviously made by people who love the game. Not just for the dungeons, or the pvp or what uber gear you can get....but just for the overall simple beauty that this game has and I think so many people miss. It's quirky and yes a little long but it does show that there is something quirky and amazing about every part of this game from the landscapes to the characters themselves.
I know I may be over thinking a simple piece but I believe that is the overall theme. One person said they were waiting for the "pay off". The pay off is the whole thing.
Well done. Can't wait to see what else they may come up with!
Jan 12th 2010 8:11PM I love this article and Frostheim's blog as been great for me since I found it.
I've played WoW since 2 months after release but have only played a hunter for about 9 months. I LOVE her. What I didn't expect is to feel a sort of affection for my pet(s) and to absolutely love BM (Beast Mastery) tree. It's VERY unpopular to love that tree right now it seems. All I hear is numbers non-stop and how I "NEED" to switch specs. I'm just now doing 5-man heroics. *sigh* I really don't want to switch. My husband, who is a number cruncher, insists that if I get good armor, I will, in the end, only do about 10% less dps.
ANYWAY.....I divert from what I intended to write. I love this column and it made me think about future gear. I am the first one to admit, I may not be a WoW noob....but I am SO a hunter one!
Thanks Frostheim for a great first article and I'm so happy to have you writing!
Dec 8th 2009 11:16PM Well basically up but I had weird lag on Stonemaul. Everything would run fine for a few minutes...then the screen would freeze for about 3-6 seconds...then everything would start up again like nothing had happened. =\
I'm off for the night hoping all will be better soon. On one note....the core hound puppy pet...ROCKS!
Dec 1st 2009 12:06PM This AFK feature I believe is a good one. However, for players like me it's become near impossible to run a BG. Why? Well, I have a life. I play WoW during my toddler's nap. At night after he goes to bed. I try to do a BG or two in the morning when he is waking up & watching Sesame Street before we play or take a walk. The thing is....I love this game, after playing 5 years, and try to fit it in. But shyte happens! I have to get up to check on him, have a bio break, whatever! I don't believe being gone 3 minutes to tend to life consitutes being AFK enough to be kicked.
What I would LIKE to see is some sort of built in meter. Kind of like the one that logs you if you are AFK for too long. If one is AFK for, I don't know, 3-4 minutes then the option to be reported is available to other players.
I use the AFK report feature but I watch the other player as I play. Their "dot" on the mini map. Do they move after 3-4 minutes? I also take into consideration where they are. Are they standing in a cemetery and life just caught them by surprise? Maybe in that case I'd wait. OR are they behind a house shadowmelded in a tree and have been there since the beginning of the BG?
As Kharay1977 said, "Truth is, Blizzard should really reconsider how they implement such features." YES! Exactly.
