Jan 10th 2012 11:13AM Well played. I never thought of the Jenkins title that way!
Dec 12th 2011 6:14PM I agree. I went from Vashjir, "OH MY GOD GET ME OUT OF THE WATER BEFORE I HAVE A FREAK OUT MOMENT," to a small amount of Hyjal, to Uldum, which indeed was a nice change of pace.
Dec 12th 2011 6:12PM I agree. Vashjir was fun the first time, but extremely disturbing as a claustrophic person. I did it all in one day, for the most part, and I kept wondering, "How am I getting back to the surface!? Am I EVER going to see the surface again?"
Perhaps that was intended.
But I loved Uldum. I loved the art, I loved the quests. I loved being with Jones, I loved Brann at the end. I loved the Egyptian-esque stuff. I love the desert. I love the mystery.
I wish the bandits were played up a little more, though.
Dec 12th 2011 5:57PM I don't think Deathwing is the bringer of the end. It surely is Brann Bronzebeard. Certainly, if you combine the spontaneous about of mayhem that swirls around him on a daily basis, combine it with his awesome beard of mighty awesome-ness, sprinkle in a little obliviousness, and stir that all together, you surely have a cocktail made for disaster.
For every moment that Brann "accidentally" discovers the booby-trap, I have already been screaming, "It's a trap!" because I know what will happen with Brann and the shinies he can't help but inspect. The poor Aldor priestess, as powerful as she may be, would hesitate before commencing an attack upon Brann, and by then, Brann's already sprung at least half of the mysterious traps laid about him.
As a hopeful archaeologist to be, I find Brann's character to be both fitting and a little offbeat. Fitting, in that he depicts how an archaeologist can become instantly swooned by the sights around them, the context of the artifacts, and then perhaps immediately spring the temple's defense systems. He's offbeat because he never gets hurt (because there's a magical group of five people who will begrudingly say, "Oh, there he goes again! That devilish old dwarf!" and save the day), whereas a real archaeologist would probably be killed several times over.
But that's a topic for another day.
The question is, who exactly is more oblivious than Brann Bronzebeard, and thus, could out-oblivious the king of obliviousness?
Dec 12th 2011 1:51PM I love the RF...
But I am forced to put my computer on low-quality graphics, without any addons (except for recount), and I STILL lag.
I don't know if it's my computer or WoW, but it sure makes the RF kind of that, "Well, I'm kind of doing what I can to help, but I'm kind of lagging ninety percent of the time, so my dps kind of sucks, but, oh hey! Look! I didn't die! And my gear dropped! Awesome!"
I feel guilty and strangely happy, to see the end content as well as gear up, but in a very bittersweet way.
Dec 7th 2011 2:02PM Oh!! My history major agrees with you! How awesome, two things I love wrapped together in a pretty bow.
It's like Christmas already!
Dec 7th 2011 11:46AM Well sure, most good guys turned bad guys do sound a lot like "x-villian."
But I don't know. Benedictus struck me as being a little too similar to Sidious...
Or maybe I've been watching too much Star Wars.
Dec 7th 2011 11:07AM Am I the only one who finds that Archbishop Benedictus sounds a lot like Darth Sidious? He even becomes all ugly after tapping into the "dark side" of the Light.
Pawaaaaaaaah and mwaaawidge, that is what bwings us togetha~
Nov 30th 2011 6:01PM Loved bits and pieces of this. Overall, very catchy, and it was funny, too!
