Jul 19th 2011 10:55PM Wow, horde gettin' trolled by an NE. Too sweet.

Phat Loot Phriday: Gorehowl {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2011 9:51AM You actually DO need to get a couple friends for this, considering how hard (impossible?) it is to solo the Chess event. Beyond that, yes, Karazhan is soloable.

Nice try.

Scattered Shots: Hunter spec and class balance {WoW}

Jan 5th 2011 9:54AM These articles are impressive! Makes me wonder why I quit WoW in the first place. The community for hunters is too great to overlook.

For the topic, I'm probably just gonna stick to SV either way. Why? I already blew all my cash on 310% flight, and can't be bothered to respec for the 5th time in 3 days.

Cazar is my main 85 hunter. Back when I started up wow, I was taking a Spanish class in high school. That sorta got me into the language, so I just googled what "hunter" in Spanish was. The best I could do was Cazar, which if I recall, means "to hunt". Thought that was cool :D

More ideas for player housing {WoW}

Jul 24th 2009 2:08PM Yeah, I used to play RS and yes, that does sound very familiar. I'm not sure if it would go over well though. It's a good concept that RS did, but would it work with WoW? I'm not sure.

I really don't get where you're coming from. Like I said, In the past Blizzard let hunters keep non-beast pets, slimes ghost wolves etc.

Are you saying that in this particular case, since the non-best in question is a humanoid, that it is granted with a different approach? That sounds alright, but what Blizzard is failing to do is providing a clear and, perhaps fair, reason why.

One can argue that slimes are akin to taming something equivalent to the living dead, which is highly improbbable in any case, yet Blizzard let it go. Ghost wolves are spirits of the past which remain on Azeroth due to either personal issues or inner turmoil that won't let them rest in peace, and taming one to do your bidding is cruel. That, or they are only meant to help players as spirit guides, not spirit "pets". Yet, Blizzard let this slide once more.

In Garwals case, it is a Worgen in Worg form (right?). It's technically a cursed being, and taming one is quite unfair (yet still BA). However, this case was special in someway that Blizzard just had to reverse this effect, in contrast to past cases with similar notes.

This is my opinion only, and I welcome a rebuttal ^_^

Jul 23rd 2009 5:57PM I agree completely. What boggles my mind is why Blizzard didn't provide an definite answer to the backlash. Hunters asked "Why them and not us?", and Blizzard sidestepped their way through the barrage of questions, with no clear answer in sight (that I can distinguish). We will see though, if it really is because of a new race.
