All the World's a Stage: You can't be a vampire {WoW}

Feb 7th 2010 10:10PM I have to admit, anything is possible in WoW rp or almost anything. I've seen somebody roleplay to make three characters control'ed by machine mixed with witch like magic, I ended up as the 'hero' in the roleplay and it was really interesting and made sense, well made sense once I learned about everything. Personally i'd rather see more vampires around than 'Arthas' Son', 'Super powerful level 58 dk that cant lose!', and things like that. Oh yeah and get ready to see a bunch of stories ignoring that the worgen are gilneans and that they are citizens of stormwind catching a curse.

Breakfast Topic: Should we have to level every character? {WoW}

Feb 6th 2010 1:02PM Ok if leveling gives you all the expeirence and time you need learning your class than explain this

My hunter leveled from 1-80 as beast master but when i hit eighty i switched to marksman, and marksman is played completely different from bm, and its the same for every class. You have a leveling spec, then at 80 most classes change their spec but do not know how to play it. Think of this before LFG leveling asa resto druid was almost impossible, and nobody in their right minds would do it, but when they ding 80 they want to heal and guess what, they will be almost just as clueless as they would have been if they started at 80. Also another thing there have been many classes on the ptr I learned to play starting at eighty with a couple hours of work. Leveling is fun the first time but after that it gets old and boring. And to people who say 'I've leveled 10 eighties you can level a second.' Think about this 4 days out of the week I raid, I have dailies to do everyday, I go to church on wedsday and sunday, there is work 5 days out of the week, and I like to spend time with family and friends alot to go see a movie or something so lets see that maybe gives me an hour or two a week I can spend leveling an alt, which I find boring to go throught the whole process again. Also I like trying out other things in the game at times aswell, like pvp for maybe an hour, spend some time on an rp realm since I enjoy rp'ing there a couple hours out of the week or so. Leveling is almost impossible for people who have schedules like me and dont spend all their time on WoW.

We have our pony: Invincible revealed {WoW}

Jan 27th 2010 6:21PM I'm so glad that we put our guilds loot system on free for all (Yes the raid leader still says who gets what, he just trusts us not to ninja anything), that mount it mine even if i get a g-kick! :P

Ghostcrawler on hunter ammo replacement {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2010 9:41PM This probably means hunters who started out as the most expensive class (when 2k ammo cost 30 gold) has turned into normal prices (Ammo becomes 4 gold a stack, and our feign deaths can save us a ton of gold, I actually went into TotGC and literally only died twice when we wiped a ton because of feign death, so I saved a ton of gold there) to the cheapest (feign deaths + ammo not costing gold). I remember when i'd only use my 'good' ammo for boss attempts (that i knew we werent wiping on, when we first tried yogg I was like this will take a while and switched to common ammo since dps wasnt an issue).

But anyways I like the relic idea, what could happen is depending on your relic/ammo it will give your shots a cool animation type thing a buff but a small debuff with it, here are some ideas

Fire Shots (make your ammo appear to be on fire) - Deals an extra 15% damage as fire damage, but lowers your armor penetration by 5%

Frost Bullets/Arrows - Every shot slows your enemy by 1% for 3 seconds, stacking and refreshing each shot maxing at 100%, however your attack speed is lowered by 5%

Power Shots - Every shot deals 10% more damage but lowers your chance to hit by 1%

Splatter Shots - These shots splatter on your enemy giving your pet a mark to attack increasing its damage by 15% but these shots deal 5% less damage.

Multi-Rounds - Every auto shot has a 50% chance of firing two at a time, but your auto shots have 15% extra chance to be a glancing blow.

Penetrating Shot - Increases the amount of armor your shots penetrate by 20% but lowers your critical strike rating by 5%

Bullets/Arrows of the Chimera - Your Chimera shot has a 50% chance to give you the buff 'Blessing of the Chimera' increasing your nature damage done by 50% for 12 seconds, but during this time your armor penetration is lowered by 5%

Ammo of Bestial Fury - Every one of your shots increases the damage of your pet by 2% maxing at 25%, but each shot lowers your damage by 1% maxing at 25% this continuesly stacks for 20 seconds then refreshes.

Explosive Ammo - Your explosive shots deal 20% of the damage dealt to all enemies within 10 yards of your target and spreads all debuffs on the target to them all, if only one target within the 10 yards every explosive shot increases your damage by 5% until you crit, however your explosive shot ticks for 3% less damage until the dot goes away.

Thats just some ideas.

In defense of care packages and mandatory authenticators {WoW}

Jan 11th 2010 6:59PM I've seen this happen to about three guild members which ruined our guildbank, one of my RL friends 3-4 times, and one of my best friends in WoW who i didnt know in real life twice, and after the second time he ended up quitting because he had 2 eighties the first time couldnt get them back, and so got a new account made a paladin once it got to about 77 he was hacked again and he basically stopped. Also it was one of our officers in our guild who was hacked, i have an authenticater and actually got one as soon as i could, have never had my WoW account be hacked, even though my old computer got a major virus, I thank my authenticater for keeping me from getting it stolen. Also so you dont lose an authenticater, mine is tied to my keyboard with velcro, and if i want to move it while im going somewhere, i simply un-tie it and take it where i need to go.

Breakfast Topic: Not This Again {WoW}

Dec 30th 2009 4:49PM How about this, for random dungeons it allows you to either hit

Dont find one ive already done today

Or be able to 'uncheck' 1 at minimum or 3 at maximum for instances you dont want to do. It would still be random enough, and you shouldnt have to do instances you dont like without having to leave the group and wait longer for another one, or not able to get the emblems you want.

Lich King animation found {WoW}

Oct 16th 2009 11:03PM That doesnt really look like the Lich King, and really he's not a random raid boss blizz made to die like that, if he dies (which i dont see him dying yet or at least the lich king dying meaning new lichy if possible) then he wont fall on the floor dead like Illidan blizzard said they had a cinematic planned for his 'defeat', i see that everywhere im not seeing death like most other raid bosses, could just be what blizzard typed but i have a feeling we wont the Lich King die just yet, also because in the cataclysm commercial it says as the war againest the lich king CONTINUES. All i know is something more epic than that will happen on the finale boss of the expansion.
