Jul 31st 2009 10:51AM I agree that there should be a choice of weekly quests and daily quests, with the dailies paying out more over a week of doing them than the weekly. I have my routine of doing 25 dailies just about every day and it doesn't make much sense to reward someone who puts in 1-2 hours a week, the same as someone who puts in about 1-2 hours a day doing the dailies. If Blizz wants to do more for the casual player, go ahead, but please not at the cost of those of us who put in more time and dedication. Maybe make the weekly quests 5 man group quests (and make it hard enough so no cheating palys or dks can one man it. lol), but of course that would make it less casual friendly, which is not what they are aiming for.
Jul 27th 2009 12:47PM Alex - I miss all the festivals in Milwaukee :( I only get out there about once a year to visit family and check out all my old haunts.
Can't believe the weekend is over already. meh. At least our guild downed one more boss in Ulduar (Iron council finally!) and i did a Naxx 25 pug all nighter that got me some gear upgrades. Next weekend is a long weekend. Yay for made up Canadian holidays, whichever one it is!
Jul 22nd 2009 1:07PM The paly gear looks nice, although they need to get rid of the gold on the horde set and replace it with silver or some other color. I don't have a paly thought so i'm not too concerned about it.
I do have a priest though and while the alliance set doesn't look bad, it's just blah. I guess i'm just disappointed in the chest piece, they really need to start doing something different with it, maybe add more color or something, it just looks boring. On the other hand, i'm glad we don't have the horde set, while it's awesome for a shadow priest, it would look wrong for a holy or disc priest. Then again, shadow could use some gear love, so i'm glad they have this set.
I wish they could just reskin the sets and have one with alliance colors and one with the horde colors for each set and we could choose which we wanted to wear. That way i could have the priestly looking alliance set for my disc spec and the darker looking horde set for my shadow spec.
Jul 20th 2009 11:28PM I wasn't interested in this game at all, but it would be a first day buy if they included the juggernaut voiced by the guy in the vid. comb your beard, i don't wanna hear that shit....
when i first saw this post i thought the pre order goodie was a juggernaut statue or at least an action figure, now that i know it's just a stupid character in game i'm disappointed. Will probably buy the game when it hits $20.
Jul 15th 2009 3:50PM So they want to keep the 310% mounts to 5% or less of all players? Does this mean they are nerfing the violet proto drake or are they planning on less than 5% actually completing that achievement? Please don't nerf it!! :(
Anyway, the Q&A was informative, I have an alt druid I plan to get to 80 soon. He's sitting at 41 waiting for 3.2 to drop for now though.
Jul 9th 2009 3:46PM Dang, not even off work by then and don't have access to ustream from here. Oh well, hope you have a good show!
Jul 6th 2009 11:15AM I got the acheivement on my main the first hour it went live. Didn't really bother with Ahune other than for the achievement. Too hard to find a group for it the rest of the week. After that i did the dailies and fires with my alt, only able to get 1 city flame and a few fires in outland and northrend on him though, didn't have enough patience to get the rest. Towards the end i was getting really burned out of the festival and made one last push, going around again to most of the fires on my main and stopping when i hit a nice round number of gold. Wish i could have spent more time leveling on my alt with the exp bonus, but that's about my only regret.
One more holiday til the drake! yay!
Jun 29th 2009 5:40PM I'm going to be really disappointed if you can only control npc humans or those of the other faction like the priest mc let's you. It's no fun unless you can mc someone of your own faction off a cliff, otherwise it's useless to me...
Jun 29th 2009 5:33PM ugh...seems like my reply got eaten, so let's try it again.
To Wulf- If i read correctly Adam in his article said "Schematic is apparently randomly hidden within another summonable bot."
Zarhym said "The schematic for this handsome robot was said to be hidden within the parts of another robot" Which doesn't say anything about a summonable robot.
I don't have access right now to the original post by Zarhym, so can't confirm if that is exactly as he worded it. I'm just taking it from this article
Jun 29th 2009 5:00PM wow, nice! I can't wait to try all these out! The wormhole generator sounds awesome, as does the mind amp dish. Guess i can't put it on my main head gear with the enchant restrictions, but i hope i can throw it on my fishing hat or whatever cool hat i can find. The Engineer only auction bot in Dal is excellent, once i get the last stupid cooking recipe i need from outland dailies i won't have any reason to leave northrend again. :) Kind of disappointed that the belt doesn't let you breath underwater anymore though, but that's why i keep my diving helmet with me. As for Jeeves, i hope the schematic is boe if it drops from a boss, i would rather buy it.
