Time Is Money: Frost Lotus prices and farming {WoW}

Feb 16th 2010 7:07PM Interesting to contrast this with shards and other enchanting mats, which are at record lows at the same time (because of the auto-disenchant options now available with LFD).

WoW.com Giveaway: World of Warcraft Programming, 2nd Ed {WoW}

No mention of WoW on the Apple iPad {WoW}

Jan 27th 2010 3:24PM I've enjoyed being able to use my phone to remote control a PC running WoW for years now.

This has been great to jump into guild chat, in-game mail, check on auctions, etc (before armory was around, there were other uses as well).

Unfortunately, the thing that is most convenient is that my phone is with me pretty much 24x7. If I were willing to carry a larger more functional device with me *all of the time*, there are probably options that are better than the I-pad.

Breakfast Topic: Running progression raids blind {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2009 10:47AM I have a ton of respect for guilds/raids that do this, but ...

For any instance with attempt counters limiting your shots at bosses/loot... well .. I would not consider myself a good raid leader if I didn't do all I could to make sure that we got the most out of all of our attempts.

I think that the counters discourage truly 'blind' attempts on the live realms.

Ah well... better to have tried and lost.. than never to have tried at all... or something like that. :-)

Blizzard files lawsuit against private server {WoW}

Oct 29th 2009 4:28PM Excellent point about how it is not wise to give your financial information to people who seem to advocate theft as part of their business model... but I am wondering why this problem exists at all...

How is it that these companies get their hands on the original server code/executables?

Or perhaps more to the point... how is it that Blizzard is letting the code get out to anyone?

Breakfast Topic: How do you feel about the new LFG system? {WoW}

Oct 29th 2009 3:01PM Bliz made a ton of errors when they switched to the structured /i interface. These problems pushed people into using /trade as being the most efficient way to form groups (although this solution is far from ideal).

There have been some huge improvements since the original roll-out, and things are getting better. Unfortunately, the 'goodies' they are proposing to give us for using the system don't make up for the short-comings which still exist.

I personally would like to see the following improvements in functionality of the interface:
1. Allow the group lead to specify how many healers/dps/tanks they want in their group, and then let the user browse all of the currently open healer/dps/tank slots accross the board.

2. Allow me to easily find people on my friends list who are currently in LFG. I'm the kind of person who likes to help a friend in need.

3. Add a third character list to supplement 'Friends' and "Ignore'. I ignore loud-mouthed idiots, and don't want to be grouped with them... true enough. However, there are some people I would never be so rude as to ignore, but don't care to run real content with them either. Also ... can someone explain how we are going to be able to 'ignore' users on other realms? However it is they intend to accomplish this, should be applied to the other (two) list(s) as well.

4. Perhaps most importantly, we need a 'free-form event'. I should be able to enter an LFG for HH, some other seasonal boss, that rare spawn, or whatever without having a quest in my log, or ending up with a bunch of L35 toons thinking that I am giving runthrough's of SM:GY.

I know that several of these changes would be complicated in a cross-realm environment, but I honestly believe that such improvements would go a long way towards making the /i interface the preferred method of finding a group without needing to add badge bounuses, or pets as incentives.

Oct 29th 2009 1:59AM It feels like the definition of insanity... I keep doing the same thing over and over again... expecting a different result. Please tell me I am not insane ;-)
