Breakfast Topic: That first WoW trailer no one seems to remember {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 8:37AM Optimus Prime was one of the Titans...

Breakfast Topic: What is your class theme song? {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 8:32AM For Shaman, anything by Earth, Wind, and Fire seems appropriate.

The OverAchiever: Guide to Love is in the Air 2012 {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2012 7:19PM Excellent point, mamaryno! On my server, it still seems like Dalaran is the defacto neutral ground for this sort of thing, but I'll have to be sure to add DMF to my list of places to check for this too.

Breakfast Topic: Do you put WoW on display? {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 9:55AM For the longest time I had my WC3 Thrall figure standing on a shelft at my desk at work. (Took him down when we learned that our floor plan was changing and we'd have even less personal space.) However, my work laptop uses a WoW landscape screenshot as the desktop wallpaper, and I have an image folder of other WoW landscapes that my screensaver cycles through. It's subtle and only other WoW players notice. Once, a guy asked if my screenshot of the sky over Hellfire Penninsula was an image of Jupiter's moons taken from Jupiter...

Breakfast Topic: Would you vote-kick that NPC from your party? {WoW}

Jan 17th 2012 9:12AM Give 'em a break Allison...that was millenia ago. They were noobs then. ;)

The Queue: Gangsta {WoW}

Jan 14th 2012 12:22PM It was a bug, albeit a welcome bug. It has since been fixed.

How to transition from PvE into PvP {WoW}

Jan 13th 2012 7:31PM Simply my opinion... Given the scenario you described, your first and foremost priority is to get as much resilience as you can. More resilience = more surviability and less frustration for you in the short term as you get better PVP gear over the long term.

Trinkets, relics, rings, and neck pieces are usually the least expensive way to start getting resilience. (Current season honor gear trinkets will net you over 400 resilience a piece!) In fact, one of the first pieces you get should be the "updated" Insignia of the Alliance/Horde trinket (the one you can use to remove all movement impairing or loss of control effects on your character). After filling those slots, start saving for the main set pieces.

Also remember that you can run REGULAR random and Heroic random dungeons to get Justice and Valor the Justice/Valor trade goods vendor, you can then exchange those points into Honor/Conquest (with about a 100 point exchange fee for the Justice to Honor conversion).

Finally, as an addendum to Gray's "Don't fight on the road" advice, remember that some BGs give more Honor to folks who stay and defend objectives. In such BGs, I'm usually in the top 3 or 4 for honor earned--not because I'm killing everyone, but because I'm defending objectives/nodes.

Hope this helps; good luck!

Breakfast Topic: What's the most useless ability in World of Warcraft? {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 9:55AM And don't forget that they're handy (along with the Shaman's Farsight ability) when it comes to taking 3rd person POV screenshots of your character or group.

The Star Wars Insider Show Episode 225: Ham bomb {WoW}

Dec 20th 2011 7:22PM Thanks, Rossi. Of all the days to post a pod cast wherein you talk about ham just had to be the day my wife told me to order our Christmas ham.


Anyone know where I might be able to rent a bomb sniffing dog?

Watch Cataclysm's ending cinematic {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 1:41AM Reminds me of "Into the Fire" from Babylon 5's third season.

Now, MoP absolutely MUST have someone saying the line "It was the dawn of the third age of mankind...the year the great war came upon us all" in its trailer.
