Sep 24th 2010 1:58PM Yeah I stumbled across this place by accident once a while back. I always wondered what the deal with it was. There's nothing there sadly, but some ruins, and an abandoned house on a small pier.
Recently I rode into what remains of the DK Starting area in the Plaguelands. This was obviously all phased of course. But it's really eerie going through, and knowing that there's some people there starting their 450th DK in a phased instance.
Sep 22nd 2010 3:26PM Nope you still would have had to call them and deal with resetting the authenticator. There's no form (at least from what I have seen) to do it online.
Sep 20th 2010 6:37PM As I predicted. They nerfed the hell out of Camo. It was rather OP to me. And I played a hunter, we should be ranged rogues really.
Although I am saddened that melee can break the camo as well. Hadn't thought they'd put that into the change. Which yes, imo, makes camo a useless ability I won't be using, except when I have given up all hope, and use it right when I'm about be slaughted by group of angry alliance. You might as well die out in style. Thanks Blizz.
Sep 16th 2010 8:11PM I played on Malygos Alliance since Wrath launched. I had 3 lvl 80 toons. The furthest I got in progression was TotC Normal 10. After that, I screwed my account up. due to losing my ipod, and the account owners name was my brothers. So I couldn't get it straightened out, and it remains in wow limbo I guess. And lost everything pretty much.
I was in 3 crappy raid guilds. 1 blew up 2 weeks after I joined, because the guild leader had a nervous break down, and dismantled the guild. The other was a semi-casual raid guild, who weren't willing to help anyone get geared for Ulduar at the time. The top members were very self-important, and felt if you weren't already through Naxx, you weren't worth the time to take a long for Ulduar, and to go and pug what you needed. Malygos pugs blew.
After that I took a break. Came back, formed a novelty guild called "Crusaders of Tacobell", which received threats from a previous guild party, who had it out for a few of my friends. I had one person contact a GM claiming the guild name was in violation of copyright infringement with Tacobell, which later was cleared with the same GM who said everything was alright, and not to worry.
After that, I dropped the guild because I realized I had no real intentions of doing anything with it. We didn't have enough people in it to do any serious raiding. And my friends had taken a break from WoW at that point.
A few months later, I came back, Ice Crown had hit Live. I was able to fill some gear slots with some of the drops out of IC5mans Heroic, and some T9s. And I joined yet another guild that has probably fallen apart by now. We started on Faction Rep grinds in ICC. That didn't last long, crap blew up. Guild was having major drama issues etc. And then I lost my wow account and haven't been back on Malygos since.
My experience with that server is, if you're looking for good raiding guilds, do your research thoroughly. There's a lot of so called "Casual Raiding Guilds" that fell apart fast before they started.
I'm not going to completely diss the entire the server here. I'm sure there are some really great guilds on there, with decent people. But I've had poor luck on there with guilds, as you can see.
Since then, I moved on to a pvp realm, mid sized, Horde. And I have done very well there. I basically went back to my roots, and I enjoy the game again. The end.
tl;dr: Played on Malygos for 2 years, had some terrible experiences with guilds, screwed my wow account up, doing better since then.
Sep 10th 2010 3:12AM An incentive to get people to buy Cataclysm, that's why. I'm not terribly surprised by this move, even though the devs said on a few occasions, they were most likely not going to make it a requirement at all.
But it seems someone at Blizzard had a brainstorm while sitting on the toilet one day, and pooped out this gem. They have to put some restrictions some where to get people to buy the expansion after all.
I'm also calling it now. Those new class/race combinations we're getting... you won't be able to play them unless you buy the expansion. I am dead sure they're doing it that way.
Sep 7th 2010 2:16PM Oh it figures! I unsubbed from WoW this month because there was nothing to do and this finally hits! FFUUUUUUU!
Sep 6th 2010 8:08PM As a Hunter, I can tell you this, this is way OP'D. It's going to get nerfed hard, as it should. There should be no reason at all for AoE attacks not to break Camo. That's really unfair in a bg or arena fight.
In the mean time, all you hunters on beta right now, I say take full advantage of it, and enjoy being overpowered before the Nerf Hammer of Doom comes.
Sep 2nd 2010 1:51PM You know this sounded very exciting. I had grown bored and fallen victim to the end of expansion syndrome.
So I just tried logging into wow to join your guild, when I forgot. I unsubbed this month, to take a break. And I'm broke! :*( I hate back to school week.
Aug 31st 2010 12:56PM I'm in a layed back position currently. My former guild disbanded months ago, for another "Elite Raiding Guild", to finish the ICC raids.
My GF who plays, has stopped playing due to "Content sucking".
And I took a hiatas 3 or 4 months ago, only to come back to this mess. I was far behind in progression, where the last raid my main did was Naxx H10. Even with the Free T9 Emblem gear, it's still not enough for me to get into a pug to do ICC Normal. Nobody wants someone they don't know, and I don't really blame them.
So I sat down and said "To hell with the Lich Queen and this server".
I left the server, abandoning my 80 Hunter (I refuse to pay $25 bucks for a server transfer and I grew bored of the class).
I decided PVP was where I wanted to be anyways. Rolled on a pvp realm. Leveled a Warlock, a DK (for giggles really I suck at the DK), and I'm currently leveling a class I never played before. A Shaman.
That's where I am now. I'm not raiding. Even on this new better server, it's still a "5600000GS OR GTFO!" kind of attitude in trade. The guild I am currently in is raiding though. They just got through Lich Normal (A little behind but hey it's cool).
I've been broken down to a more casual play style basically. Cata sounds exciting. I played around in it a little thanks to my gf who is in the beta. But it's not something that is killing me to play now.
The end expansion times... are the hardest. I know. I'll kill Lich when I am 85 one day lol.
Aug 30th 2010 5:09PM Man being a hunter back then sounded like hell. If I had to roll a hunter back in vanilla, I probably would have dropped it for a Warlock lol.
I play a Warlock now, after my 3 year career as a Hunter. Mainly because I just grew bored with the hunter class. But as of late, I've been rethinking of picking my hunter off the shelf for Cataclysm.
