Nov 25th 2009 10:50PM Ooh, shiny.
Nov 20th 2009 6:43PM I loved both the Ymiron-vs-Dred and Telestra-vs-Volazj stories, but Dred is... he's a t-rex, awesome though Volazj is. I'm looking forward to the raid boss season, and not only because it's going to be funny watching people try to come up with a reason that Gothik is fighting Faerlina. I saw a picture with both of them in it once, but I don't think that counts as "fighting".
Nov 16th 2009 11:52PM Because Orb transforms clothes too. My BElf Paladin uses her orb of deception and turns into a Retribution Mage.
Oct 29th 2009 2:25AM I've actually met a couple of transsexual gamers who actually DO play that character because they want to be one in real life, but there's something prohibiting them. It's a simple way to "test the waters", so to speak, and there's nothing wrong with that. Not everyone "pretending" to be a female character does it for kicks, or for phat lewtz, or for eyecandy. People need to get used to the fact that yes, there are in fact people out there who aren't happy with their birth gender, and there's nothing wrong with that.
Oct 1st 2009 1:18PM The Old Gods have sway over Forsaken. Who is to say that they don't hold former members of the Scourge?
Dred will be mobbed by his raptors, Loken by his sentries, Eregos by his whelps... no-one is alone. The players are driven insane, and somehow we instantly react and kill our copies. You'd have to be entirely without remorse to destroy your own allies for your own survival - even if you did know they were just copies... the question is, how do you tell when the nightmare has ended?
Imagine the Volazj fight, but for the entire fight you can attack players (though you shouldn't) and can heal the illusions. There's no warning, no way to tell that you've switched to nightmare mode until your rogue has stunlocked you into next week.
This is fighting Volazj. Watch him, watch your friends... but above all, watch your back.
Sep 22nd 2009 10:38AM Mine's stuck at 10% too. Any mirrors up yet?
Sep 22nd 2009 8:59AM Back when I was alliance, I enjoyed the quests in Hellfire Peninsula that were basically "Get rid of those cannons! We need the horde's help!" because it was TRUE. We had Nazgrel in charge of the horde in outland - and he seems fair enough, but y'know, he wasn't characterized much. We have Garrosh in Northrend, and it's him that inspired the Broken Front. Members of the horde - not scheming forsaken. Not demons. Not fel orcs, not legion posessed orcs - just orc bloody mindedness. It was ALL ORCS. And they charged in for Hellscream. They killed the Alliance and the Scourge indiscriminately - and Thrall has done nothing. THIS is far worse than the Wrathgate. The broken front is all out war.
Also, blood elves aint' goin back to the alliance. Garithos was a little too much of an asshole and... wait.
Valeera Sanguinar's an alliance Blood Elf. Varian plain doesn't have the same problems with Blood Elves as he does with orcs. In fact, if the Orcs and Forsaken were gone... we might actually have a decent chance at getting Icecrown down this year. Then again, we've never seen human reactions towards Tauren. Trolls could be a problem *coughDanathTrollbaneCoughCough* but Varian has no issue with BElfs, no bone to pick with the Tauren. Night Elves have no more reason to object to Blood Elves than they do to Warlocks (which they let run rampant)...
On a completely unrelated topic, why the hell don't Tyrande, Velen, and Metatorque have anything to do with Northrend? There's a couple Night Elves defending Wintergarde, Velen sent a squadron of Draenei to Valiance Keep, and Mettatorque's gnomes set up the Fizzlecrank Airstrip. And even Magni only shows up at the end of ONE QUEST. It seems like Blizzard has forgotten that Tyrande, Velen, Metatorque, Cairne, Vol'jin, and ESPECIALLY Lor'themar, who hasn't done anything since the level 18 BElf quests.
TL:DR, there's more than Thrall, Jaina, Garrosh, Saurfang, and Thrall.
Anduin Wrynn for King!
... come to that, why the hell DIDN'T Bolvar bubblehearth? Hell, if he'd just popped Bubble he woulda lasted long enough for Alexstrasza to show up.
... my train of thought would have been derailed, but the ground is made of them.
Sep 21st 2009 8:06PM @Mugutu (Because I can't work out the reply button)
Famous non-(new) horde orcs! Yay!
Neeru Fireblade (So what if he's pretending.)
Zulahed the Whacked
(Garona Halforcen) - grey area. Not entirely sure where her loyalty lies at the moment, I'm a little behind on the comics, and she's a half-draenei anyway.
(Ner'zhul) - grey again - while it's clear he's not part of the horde, I think Arthas chucked him out of his brain at the same time as his humanity.
*cough* Illidari, Dragonmaw, and Shadow Council. That is all.
Sep 16th 2009 8:40AM The same way most raids do.
Seriously, I doubt reforging will be that dramatic. Reforge the int into agi? Still got incredibly low DPS and a useless socket bonus. Reforge two stats? May as well just make every single item in the game with no stats, but 10 prismatic sockets.
Jul 17th 2009 3:53AM But Eregos would be dragon/flying... so no electricity super effective for you. Loken would be... what, electric/rock?
*cough* Anyways, Loken wins here. The aura will pulse on the adds WAY too fast for them to get to him, and the steady damage from it will give him a nice advantage over Eregos. Let's face it, in all these fights, it's a DPS race, what with no healers, and if Loken was as strong as Eregos, his abilities would push him WAAAY over. Imagine doing Eregos on the ground - it'd be pretty easy if he didn't hit slightly harder than the average raid boss. So yeah... Loken wins.
