Breakfast Topic: Do you like PvP? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 8:56AM Personally, I never got into PVP because of the gear grind. Maybe I'm just a noob at getting gear, but I personally like just fighting. The 4k resilience requirement is just evil for people just starting BGs or Arena.

That, and I have zero experience with Arena, so I feel like I should get into that more.

As mentioned in a comment I made recently on another post yesterday, I'm leveling a Priest. After reading this post, I'm beginning to think that my Priest could be for PVE/Raids, while my Paladin could be primarily for PVP. I'm guessing it'd be pretty solid.

Of monks, mains, and the ability to change {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2012 7:09PM I'm currently in the process of switching Mains. Doing the grind from 80-85 right now, after a month-or-so break and a Scroll of Resurrection. My Holy Paladin is great and all, but the reason I'm switching mains is because of one comment back early in this expansion. That was paraphrased as:

"You aren't that great of a healer. You should do DPS."

Now, I decided against it, and ultimately left that guild because I couldn't do the DPS I would have liked to (Ranged, instead of Melee), but it got me thinking that I should do more than just heal PVE content. So now I'm leveling my Priest for both PVE, PVP, Heals, and/or DPS. Or, at least, 2 of the 4, since the game doesn't allow more than 2 specs.

Breakfast Topic: What do you listen to while playing? {WoW}

Dec 13th 2011 10:05AM I prefer the default WoW music. For some reason, I like when the music changes by the zone I'm in. Maybe I'm just weird, though. If anyone has suggestions for alternative music (and addons to make the music work like the default music's behavior), that would be very helpful! =D

The Queue: In which Adam recently discovered The Big Bang Theory {WoW}

Dec 6th 2011 11:27AM Question for Q-Queuing: I'm a Freshman in college. How do you balance time in college (studies, friends, classes, etc.) with being a WoW player (dungeons, some raiding, maybe some PVP, etc.)?

I've found it hard to play WoW for short amounts of time, and I'm encouraged to take "short, 15- to 30-minute breaks." It's impossible to do a Heroic in 30 minutes, even an hour, for some of them, so that's out of the question...

On another note, is it hard to gear up a Healer (or any character) for raiding from Heroic and T11/12-level gear, this late in the expansion?

Breakfast Topic: What was your most memorable noob moment? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 8:46AM I tried tanking Magister's Terrace on my Paladin, after being a Healer the whole of my Paladining career. Multiple issues happened:

1, I didn't know MT was hard, and furthermore didn't even know the instance. 2, I didn't have RF on. 3, I didn't know about the threat mechanics.

So, in effect, I didn't know a thing about tanking or the dungeon. =/

The Light and How to Swing It: Dissecting the melee healer myth {WoW}

Oct 30th 2011 5:22PM I have often refused to go into melee range for healing. Either I'm with the ranged/caster DPS people and healing, or I'm somewhere between the Melee and Ranged.

Breakfast Topic: What do you nibble on at raid time? {WoW}

Jan 4th 2011 8:26AM I personally don't eat anything during raid time (when I HAVE done raids), as I'm already full. My family eats dinner at 6, on a regular basis, so I don't really need to stock up any more than that...

Plus, I've got too much on me as it is.

... This is all thanks to a wonderful mother who makes great food -- and LIKES to!

Breakfast Topic: It's not us, it's you {WoW}

Aug 18th 2010 11:34AM On my first server (Winterhoof-US[A]), there was a lot of guild drama going on, at the time. Perhaps it was because of the amount of new players coming in (since this was primarily between Wrath's release and Patch 3.1), or maybe the fact that the Alliance simply attracts more younger players (not to offend any adult Alliance players!), but in any case, I have either heard of or personally seen guilds eat dismantle themselves, in that instance.
One of them was called , and they simply fell apart because of extremely large numbers -- they had over 500 members, at their peak. They were succeeded, for a short time, by , which was not nearly as successful.
The other guild, which I was a member of, was called [I'm blanking on the name, but I WANT to recall it as ]. This guild was a good one, for a while... But, given that they had a GM that was leveling and wanted the guild to become a Raiding guild as soon as possible, he (and another recently-made 80) decided to leave once he dinged 80. This meant that the leader was gone.
Before that happened, however, one of his friends decided he was fed-up with the problems in the guild. He left, and asked me to join, offering me an instant-officer role. I eventually left, back for []
Back to the GM leaving: someone else eventually stepped up: a well-respected guildie, to me, who I'll just denote by his character's first initial: R.
Now, R was a good leader, for the most part; he had a good reputation, and an okay personality. R, however, did a couple things to irk me (as I did a couple things to irk him). Eventually, R booted me from the guild because he claimed I had started a "mutiny." I will admit that he had a valid argument: I had suggested we start a new guild (which could have been better-explained as a new GOAL for the guild) so that we could do something similar to raiding, which I called "Hardcore Leveling." In any case, I got booted, was offered a spot back, but I decided against going back: the guild was full of problems. I don't remember what I did, for guilds, afterward, until I got a faction-transfer.
Once the Faction Transfer option came available and I reached the next 10-level bracket (level 50, in my case; for the sake of getting all the Azeroth Flight Paths), I immediately switched to Horde, followed by a Server Transfer, and eventually, another Transfer to Terokkar(US).
I am happily here, on Terokkar, with my good friend (who I'll just call "AG" for his first and last initials). Currently, we are a small guild, with few individual members. I'm not going to complain, since this is currently in the "pre-expansion doldrums," but I would like to see the recruitment effort upped a bit.
In any case, thank you for making such a great Breakfast Topic! I'll try to look out for any of this kind of behavior.

Breakfast Topic: Soundtrack to my e-life {WoW}

Aug 6th 2010 10:07AM Personally, I love, love, LOVE the opening intro music of today... Minus the following:

/dragonwings
/roar

... Besides that, I think the whole piece is incredible. But, since the "/roar" is mandatory, I'd have to say -- even though I play Horde -- that I uber-love the Stormwind intro. It's just so epic, and fits the feel of "Grand citadel entrance" so well!

Breakfast Topic: Real-life virtues in WoW {WoW}

Jun 12th 2010 3:28PM Before I read the comments, I was thinking "My real-life personality sure doesn't reflect my in-game behavior negatively," rather, it's enhanced it. I'm usually picked on, IRL, at places such as school (gonna be a High School Senior, next year), and I sure don't like it. That's why I try to do generous acts, a lot of the time. Granted, I don't help the Alliance, as much, but I'm still willing to help them out, when I see them getting way low on health (such as was discussed in earlier comments). For people of my faction, otherwise, I'm willing to loan them some money, help them on quests, capture PvP objectives in Outland (haven't tried in the Eastern Plaguelands, yet), and however else I can help.

I just wish everyone else were like this.
