Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight official patch notes {WoW}

Nov 30th 2011 7:21PM I am aware it is not a personal bank, it IS however for personal storage of items we do not wish to lose. As an RPer I have several sets I have put together over YEARS which I was intending to store. RP clothes are USUALLY soulbound due to the nature of what we are purchasing (You see a pretty item on the AH, you don't care about the stats, you just like the item, you buy it, and yeah, it's soulbound.) . I was using the cost of a guild bank as an example only. 25g per per item is exorbitant for storage. One complete rp outfit would cost 150g to store, and I have bunches.

Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight official patch notes {WoW}

Nov 30th 2011 10:04AM Just paid 100g for void storage...and discovered they ALSO want 25g per ITEM stored. I was shocked, that is silly. I was planning to store my rp clothes, forget it now. I can make a bank guild with the first tab and spend 100g (+gold for sigs, so figure another 40-50g) doing it for the same price they would want to store a measly 5 items...125g.

Forget it Blizz, Bank guild is looking waaaay cheaper.

All the World's a Stage: Gender and roleplaying {WoW}

Mar 7th 2011 5:12PM I freely admit I am a guy who enjoys playing and rping female toons. I have two primary reasons for this. The first, the male models in wow are horrid…period. The second, a completely sexist view point, and has already been mentioned by another player, if I gotta stare at a toon’s derriere for hours at a time, it might as well be a shapely female toon’s butt.

Now, don’t allow my knuckle-dragging viewpoint fool you. I rp a bloody good female. Rping a believable female is HARD. So hard in fact that I have only rp’ed three toons successfully. A nelf hunter, a belf mage, and a draenei priest. I am not into live rp so much as the open rp story telling model. I love rping female toons, I get to flex my creativity and a bit of romantic idealism. I also get the opportunity to develop my
character into the kind of person I want her to be. My nelf is an abused (not sexually, tortured), bisexual, alcoholic. My belf is a self-absorbed rich girl, oldest of 3 sisters (raised the other two cause mom is dead and daddy away all the time), and straight. My draenei is a physician, her only thought is to help others, lonely due to working constantly, also straight. Three completely different personalities, all fun to rp in their own way.

In the end, rp is what you make of it. I do find it helps to rp with other like minded people, or you won’t get out of it what you want. Rp can’t be forced, or it comes across fake, it should be nurtured. Never make assumptions about a person based on the character they are playing, also be aware of who your own character is, or others WILL make assumptions. They only know what you tell them. Players are not mind readers.

Upcoming healer changes {WoW}

Feb 16th 2011 5:25PM Nerfing PW:S...AGAIN, is to nerf a disc priest's signature spell. The description states "Uses magic to shield allies from taking damage as well as heal their wounds." Should they be able to spam it, no. But to reduce it's effectiveness to the point that it may become avoided due to mana cost is to turn disc priests into holy priests with a different name.

The Queue: Old Gods? In my dig site? {WoW}

Jan 31st 2011 10:24PM Why, OH WHY did Blizz yank the portals from Shatt and Dal??? D:

My leveling toons still NEEDED those! My 64 priest, currently leveling in Nagrand, currently has to take a portal from SW to the Blasted Lands, then fly aaaaaallll the way from Hellfire to Nagrand...everytime she needs something in SW I have to resign myself to this horrid flight back to her questing area. I am cringing now, because in 4 levels when she hits Northrend, she'll have to wait for a bloody boat in SW to take her to Howling Fjord or Borean Tundra, and thence onward...YUCK!

Breakfast Topic: Has flight ruined the adventure? {WoW}

Dec 18th 2010 9:09AM For me it was a sense of accomplishment. My toon HAD become one of Azeroth's heroes. I bloody well EARNED the right to fly over the land on my majestic dragon. I walk, run, ride, or fly as I see fit. I LIKE the idea of lower level and new players seeing me fly over, and thinking "One day..." as they trudge onward, looking warily left and right for the next mob. Flight is a worthy endeavor to shoot for, for anyone's toon. Tell the droods you are taking away their bird form...go ahead...I DARE ya. :)

The Lawbringer: Armory annulment {WoW}

Dec 17th 2010 1:50PM I agree, it’s no laughing matter, and one of the primary reasons I don’t use facebook, or twitter. You just never know when a subpoena 5 or 10 years down the road is going to produce electronic evidence from your personal life. How you spent it, who you spent it with, the context argued over by opposing attorneys to 12 people you have never met in your life.
