Mar 24th 2012 10:19PM All of my characters use historical names - Ascanius, Catilina, Sigehelm, Theodemira - or "joke" names that are nevertheless real names of a sort, like my destruction warlock Burnadotte or my blood death knight Porphyrion.
I suspect I'll pick a Chinese name out of JOURNEY TO THE WEST for my monk, though not one of the major characters like Sun Wukong or Sha Wujing.
Jul 1st 2011 9:28AM I should add:
Human mage, tauren death knight, worgen rogue, draenei shaman, dwarf hunter; human paladin, human warrior, draenei priest, worgen druid, and gnome warlock.
No female dwarves or male gnomes. No night elves of any kind. Not sure what my tauren death knight will end up as if I faction-change him.
Jul 1st 2011 8:59AM I have ten characters on my primary server, evenly split between male and female. Male characters: mage (main), death knight, rogue, shaman, and hunter. Female characters: paladin (secondary), warrior, priest, druid, and warlock.
May 26th 2011 4:19PM The lag from China would not be any worse than the lag from Australia, or Singapore, or Malaysia, and every single Oceanic server in the game is actually physically located in the United States. We put up with it - why wouldn't they?
I know at least one American working in China who still plays on an American server because a) he still goes back to the U.S. sometimes for work and to visit family; b) that server is where all of his friends are. He has enough trouble getting periodically banned because travelling back and forth every few months makes it look like his logging in from China is a powerlevelling service or a hacker or something.
Dec 1st 2010 12:57AM I just posted my own initial thoughts post patch-4.0.3a on my blog, Cataclysmic Events:
Oct 31st 2010 7:01AM My wife was the person who convinced me to start playing World of Warcraft with her, back in January 2005 when we were dating.
Jun 1st 2010 10:21PM Technically my blog Cataclysmic Events - http://cataclysmicevents.blogspot.com/ - is about half-devoted to magery, since I've played a Fire mage as my main since January 2005.
May 10th 2010 6:19PM I have zero interest in Starcraft II. RTS is not the genre for me.
Mar 28th 2010 7:44PM I am going to be "that guy":
You don't use an apostrophe to make a plural. On page 1, "Foxton's" should just be "Foxtons".
(The alternative construction where "Foxton's" is short for "the Foxton's household" doesn't work either, because that would be "the Foxtons' household".)
Mar 20th 2010 5:20PM Mostly Fire, going into Frost deep enough for Icy Veins at least, maybe Shatter. I raided with Frostfire until partway through Ulduar, when I had so much hit from my upgrades that I went back to deep Fire as Precision was no longer helpful.
