Riding around Northrend {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2008 9:09PM I hope they give druids a new travel form, maybe a snow leopard that only works in the snowy region of Northrend. It would be even cooler if they would just give druids a 100% travel speed for. Perhaps a new Epic quest? I'm sick of mounting up for ground travel when I can simply shift for flight.

Also it would be kewl if people could ride druids. I'm looking for more ways for players to combine abilities. Maybe a mage could 'blink' and switch positions with a friendly warrior. So when a rogue attacks a mage, they end up with a warrior bearing down on them.

Blue Notes: Aran's Flame Wreath and Blade's Edge graveyards {WoW}

Apr 12th 2007 1:05PM My guild hasn't has much of a problem with Aran lately. We run 3 karazhan groups and they've all got Aran on farm.

We usually have 4 healers and 6 others in the Aran fight. I say 'others' because there's really no tanking of Aran, so our tank switches to dps mode for the duration.

Aran is hard if people dont pay attention to the blizzard. That's what usually causes us the most problems. If your teams can avoid the blizzard, you're golden.

Starting from scratch with the same class {WoW}

Apr 11th 2007 2:18PM I would say, if you haven't played your character for a while, it might be worth recreating. Also, leveling with knowledge is much faster and more fun than leveling as a noob.

My first character was a troll shaman. I reached 60, but my spec was all wrong, my equipment sucked, and I spent so much time on solo quests that I missed out on a lot of fun dungeons and cool stuff. Also, I didn't level all my tradeskills. When you're new to the game, you can miss out on a lot.

Now, fast forward 2 years and about 20 alts. When BC came out, I rolled a Draenei Shammy on my new server. Armed with everything I needed (including helpful add-ons), I quickly leveled him and chose all the right equipment, quests and talents to make it fun and easy. And I'm enjoying him a lot. Also his jewelcrafting helps out my main tremendously.

If you want to build a hunter, I say go for it. You might try a new tradeskill or a new race. But the NE hunter is a classic that never fails to entertain.

An Outland gear guide for feral druids {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2007 2:30PM I like these charts, but where's the Moonkin dps charts?

I swear, there is such animosity towards Moonkin from both the game designers and the players.

Breakfast Topic: Best class to solo with? {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2007 10:37AM Wow, I can't believe no one said Shaman. My Draenei shammy is level 42, full enhancement, dual wield. Quick travel through ghost wolf. I am tearing through mobs with Windfury. Plenty of self-healing options. Escape is easy using Earthbind/Ghostwolf. And if I happen to die, self-rez *poof*. When I have to go back to town to train, sell or restock, I can use ancestral recall every 15 minutes.

Around Azeroth: Bloodlord Mandokir {WoW}

Dec 18th 2006 1:10PM "but every time someone in the raid group dies, he gains a bit in strength and size."

I think this is slightly incorrect. When the fight begins, ghosts appear along the walls. If a person dies, a ghost will slowly walk towards the corpse. When the ghost reaches the corpse, the dead player will be prompted to 'accept' a ressurection. If the player accepts the ressurection, Bloodlord will gain a level and grow in size.

Bloodlord only gains a level and grows in size if the dead person accepts a rez from one of the ghosts on the walls. If you use a Soulstone, Rebirth or other in-battle rez ability, Bloodlord will not gain a level and grow.

Can someone confirm?

Interview with Xzin: the man with ten arms {WoW}

Dec 15th 2006 2:43PM I think this kind of behavior should not be encouraged. Although the ToS doesn't specifically prohibit a person playing 5 characters at once, I definitly think it should be discouraged. And I'm a little dissapointed that people would provide this player a forum to advertise what, at best, could be described as 'unsportsmanlike' (as noted in the interview).

I don't think the game creators ever intended that this much firepower ever be put under the control of a single player. It completely unbalances group PvP. It also makes me wonder why this player even chose a Multiplayer game since he seems more interested in playing with himself (no pun intended).

As an experiment, I do believe it is interesting to see how one person can control 5 characters (with 5 accounts and 5 computers). But I do not think it should be considered skillful to do so. This player has all but obliterated the idea of survivability in an aggressive PvP environment.

Breakfast Topic: Leveling specs {WoW}

Dec 13th 2006 1:16PM I gotta say, a BM hunter was my easiest leveling yet.

Second easiest was Shadow priest.

Third was a balance druid.

Most horrible was an enhancement shammy, but that's mostly because it was my first char and I had no clue.

Currently working on a frost mage.
