Breakfast Topic: Dual specs {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 8:16AM I'm working on a Boomkin and a Resto spec, My healing spec will still have to double for pvp and pve tho.

Breakfast Topic: How much are expansions changing the game? {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2008 9:07AM I guess an expansion is a sequel in the mmo world. You keep the progress you've made and get to continue in an all new set of adventures.

Buying gold is not a victimless crime {WoW}

Jun 6th 2008 6:53PM This is why it takes an hour to get your Auction House winnings now. Gives blizzard a chance to go through the purchases to check for these abuses. I don't know for certain, but as far as I can tell, Blizzard has a program that goes through the log of ah purchases and checks them against some standard deviation for that item. If the price falls too far out of the bell curve it's red flagged and possibly checked by a gm. Then, names are recorded and the ban hammer falls.

Breakfast Topic: Camping out {WoW}

Jun 6th 2008 2:34PM I really wish Blizzard would step in and decry these griefers, the one's that get their jollies off by killing people gray to them. When i first started playing wow, I thought thats what dishonorable kills were. There is no honor in killing someone that an average spell or ability puts out more damage than their max hp. Bring back dishonorable kills and count them against people who kill lowbies multiple times. I'm on a pvp server, and I dont hate pvp but I do hate griefing when there is no chance of retaliation. I try to laugh it off since thats the only time these griefers feel any form of accomplishment or pride in their otherwise sad excuse for a life. I also get stoked when i rob them of that glory with a daring escape. I've found druids and shamans near a body of water, are the perfect escape artists.

Scattered Shots: Why certain pet families are so popular {WoW}

May 9th 2008 1:24PM I've always picked my pet for looks and prestige, I'm leveling my second orc hunter (this one on a pvp server) and there was only one choice in pets for me. The owls of teldrassil. Nothing like sneaking into the Night elf starting area at level 10. When BC first came out, i rolled a draenei hunter and i dont think ive ever seen another Draenei with a dragonhawk.

The merits of WoW clothing {WoW}

May 3rd 2008 12:38PM @5 Heck Yes, I feel the same way. Most of the people that are going to judge and label you as nerdy for your choice of past time, are into sports or their main past time is watching tv. At least with wow youre engaging your mind(some parts are mindless but overall more active than watching something) I bite my thumb at them all. I went to go see some friends in maine that happen to be guildmates too, and we just happened to be wearing a Barrens chat and bloodsail buccaneers shirt- it wasnt the first time or the last.

Playing to win, and other reasons to play {WoW}

Apr 18th 2008 11:42AM I believe in playing with a sense of honor, because where is the challenge in killing someone gray to you or engaged with mobs. There is no glory without the possibility of defeat. Besides its a game, Im playing for fun, so doing things with the sole intention of ruining other people's fun is just a dick move.

Blizzard on griefing: deal with it. {WoW}

Apr 17th 2008 3:29PM I agree Blizzard should take a similair stance to non-RP'ers on an RP server. I play on a pvp server, but I don't believe in this all out war philosophy. Azeroth has a lot more to worry about than this petty conflict between the Horde and Alliance. Griefing lowbies and attacking people while they're engaged with multiple mobs is just the act of a coward, there can be no glory without the possibility of defeat. Most people don't share that sentiment on PVP servers, i wish there was another option where the cowardly were singled out for there actions.

Sunwell griefing runs rampant {WoW}

Apr 6th 2008 7:23PM The "Pvp happened on a pvp server" justification is akin to the Nurenberg trials defense that "I was just following orders" Just because you can act like aq dick, doesnt mean you have to act like a dick, even if you are compensating for something.

Do you drive people nuts talking about WoW? {WoW}

Mar 8th 2008 3:53AM I used to live in a similar situation, like Frogonius I had three wow playing roommates. All our computers were moved to the newly dubbed Wow room, or Super Adventure Club Central Command. Naturally we talked a lot of wow, but tried to tone it down among the uninitiated. Just until they could be uninitiated. Social situations present several conversation topics, that do not hold my interest or I simply despise. I dont follow professional sports but people never judge going in depth about that topic. Reality television is something that I especially despise, yet often I hear about peoples favorite American Idol. Wow is a hobby, and I am going to share my interests. The tv talkers that try to dog it, simply get shot down with the fact that my activity is inherently more social and requires a certain amount of thought power.
