Why is Blizzard still OK with gender inequality in World of Warcraft? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 5:47PM RetPallyJill, I believe that Xantenise is using the term "slut shamer" to describe the sort of people who call anyone who wears supposedly skimpy clothing a slut. "Slut shaming" is a term used in feminism to indicate that type of shaming. Xantenise is most likely not describing anyone whose avatar wears a bikini as a slut. They are trying to say that they do not see anything wrong with wearing a chainmail bikini.

2 crafting professions that won't make you rich {WoW}

Mar 4th 2012 11:07PM Blizzard keeps stating that they don't want to make Engineering equally profitable with other professions because "it has the cool stuff." It does have a lot of cool stuff, but quite a lot of it is only useful for a few levels, or hasn't been relevant for several expansions. I also think that a lot of the professions have cool stuff! It's still useful for my hunter, but since they dropped bullets and arrows, it doesn't even save me that cost. I wish they would make it at least have a few useful things we could sell. It's fun to have access to some of the stuff, but I wish there was something I wanted to make once in a while.

Addon Spotlight: Addon Roulette and win a Razer Nostromo {WoW}

Oct 31st 2011 12:29PM I'm really enjoying Serenity, which tells me everything I need to know for my Hunter in one easy to use, simple to set up addon. It's probably not for everyone, but for someone with limited play time/addon messing-with time, it's great! I guess it now works for other, less important classes too. ;)

I'd love a Nostromo!

The Queue: The addon was AdiBags {WoW}

Sep 6th 2011 2:52AM I actually posted a comment replying to the very first person who asked which addon it was, telling them it was Adibags. For some reason, it appeared for a while, then was gone later in the day, eaten by WoW Insider's terrible comment system. However, other people had commented to answer the question.

So not only did people not read the Addon column (missing out!) they didn't bother to glance at some of the comments and see if anyone (and everyone!) had asked the same question they were about to ask.

WoW Archivist: Patch 1.9, The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj part 2 {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 10:21PM Sad, but true: One of my guildies somehow missed the change to the Auction Houses. One day, midway through Wrath, we were waiting for him to join us for a 5 man. He told us to hold on, he had to run to Orgrimmar to put something on the AH. He was in UC... so I asked why he had to go to Org. "Because I need to use the AH." "So what? Use the one in UC," I said. "There's no AH in UC!"

That's right. He didn't find out about the AH change for TWO EXPANSIONS. ::headdesk:: Admittedly, he isn't known in the guild for his common sense or observation skills, but is definitely known for being the person most likely to not notice the pool of fire his character is standing in.

About the Bloggers: Adam Holisky {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2011 1:16PM That depends on how quickly you read. I read a book a week or so, and read primarily on my lunch break at work and during times when I'm waiting to do something (an appointment, a meeting, etc.) and before going to sleep. 15 - 30 minute chunks get me through a book very quickly. Of course, if the book is really good, I'll skip everything else and read straight through all evening and realize later that I haven't eaten dinner or fed the cats. Bur I am a very fast reader; if Adam is similarly quick he could easily manage.

It's also a question of priorities. People who really enjoy reading aren't going to cut it out of their life in order to raid. They'll find a way to play WoW and spend time reading.

Jun 22nd 2011 11:22PM Adam, are there any books you've read recently that you'd recommend?

Breakfast Topic: Did you purchase the Winged Guardian? {WoW}

Jun 5th 2011 10:01AM I haven't bought the mount, and probably won't. It isn't from any real dislike of the purchase method; it'd be nice if I didn't have to pay money to get it, but there are tons of mounts in the game that I will never have a chance to obtain, no matter how many months of subscription fees I pay. I just don't have the money, sadly, and also know I will see hundreds of toons riding it and be able to enjoy seeing it that way.

I still ride my violet proto-drake. That thing took me over a year of frustration to obtain, dammit. I'm riding it into the ground. $#&%*^ Children's Week.

Breakfast Topic: Did you purchase the Winged Guardian? {WoW}

Jun 5th 2011 9:51AM You should definitely watch the movie. However, you probably won't want to bring it to movie night with your best buds unless your best buds are geeks who love childlike things.

I haven't seen it in years...I need to go find a copy!
