This was the first wave.
This was the second wave.
This was the third.
300,000. It's okay, it's all happening so fast, it's easy to miss a bit of the info.
Apr 1st 2012 2:13PM @Ragecage's question:
With the introduction of mass/aoe looting in MoP, will there be an impact to sites who collect and then calculate the drop rates of certain items?
I seem to recall it being a toggled option for aoe looting, so if this remains true than it won't affect a thing! :)
Apr 1st 2012 1:49PM As the GM of an RP Guild on Emerald Dream (Horde side The Prophecy, btw. Shameless plug, I know) I will be doing the starting area of the Pandaren just to see the lore of the stories before the rush to 90 on live. I won't level past it otherwise I'll feel like I've put too much work into it. I also won't level 85-90 on my main until live. But my forum for the guild has posts based on the Know Your Lore articles to help players make sure their character fits lore.
I won't be doing the dungeons or the raids, I won't be doing any of that. I might get a premade toon and go around and see the zones, but then... that would take away the thrill of discovery on my priest.... Doesn't mean I won't click on every picture and screenshot just to see it.
I agree with some of the others, though. I won't read about classes other than the toons I already have at 85 and have been raiding on or pvping just because it will change how the class is played a bit. Also profession information.
Mar 31st 2012 1:02PM OK I did this with a friend over vent who hasn't read this article. This is the real result.
Once upon a time, the fluffy king of Stormwind, Varian Wrynn, was sailing on his ship, the Pride of Penelope, when suddenly an orcish warship came out of the fog! "Battle stations!" the king ordered. "We will not let them take the fluffy baboons!" Two troll hunters fired arrows at Varian, narrowly missing his groin. "By Arthas's ghost! That was close," Varian farted.
Garrosh Hellscream, warchief of the Horde, ran out onto the deck of his ship, the Bork's Depression. "Varian, you cowardly cow! Come face me, and feel the might of my Mag'har Pee!" Garrosh lunged forward and, with the grace of a rhino, landed on Varian's ship. The two fought until the mast was pink with kidneys.
Suddenly, Chen Stormstout appeared in a puff of Long Island Iced Teas. "Stop this at once! Your battle has cut off shipments of the ingredients to my prized new ale, Boring Arctic Summer Stout! If this continues, we will never have enough for Brewfest!" Varian and Garrosh looked at each other's loving faces and agreed that this fighting was pointless. "Garrosh, what do you say we let bygones be bygones and have one billion-gazillion-katrillion-million drinks together at Brewfest?" "A true warchief partners with bunnies!"
Mar 28th 2012 1:04PM You can actually. if you go into the UI settings you can increase the scale. I believe you can also change fonts? It's been a while since I've played with default ui.
Mar 28th 2012 12:39PM The key thing to remember about any beta test is that it is your one and only free ride to break the game. Find those glitches and bugs that would aggravate you if your playing live. Find those glitches and bugs you really wish Blizz would fix so that people can't exploit them for an unfair advantage. Find the way to GM Island. Also, don't forget... find a way to break the game in fun ways that you hope Blizz won't fix. Remember the STV Deathgrip flight?
Mar 27th 2012 2:10PM someone didn't read the article all the way.
Personal loot like this is -only- from raid finder. Cross server pugs. NOT for dungeons formed by your guild or same server pugs or real id pugs. Only by hitting ctrl+i and queuing for raid finder does this loot system apply.
As for those wanting to "trade tier for other tier" remember that if someone reeeeally needs their tier legs, it's going to drop for them and not be affected by whether or not you also got it. Everyone has the same chance to receive the same tier token every single week.
I am all for this system.
Mar 21st 2012 11:17PM Calm your rage, nerdlings... No need to be angry.
Anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering, suffering leads to still no beta invite...
Mar 15th 2012 4:36PM The ONLY thing I hope they keep the same is that BM is the only one that can tame spirit beasts. I do like that one distinction. Otherwise... THIS A MILLION TIMES OVER
Feb 7th 2012 10:07PM I honestly wish that you could have a separate battle tag or real id for each "account" on a battle.net. I for one have two, and anyone else who has multiple accounts because of minors that play, the real id conversations go to the wrong person so often. I've sent a real id whisper to someone on one toon only to be told in a whisper from my second account saying "Erin says:" to which I respond in the whisper to "erin" and then the cycle continues.
