Aiding the Alliance: The idle Varian Wrynn {WoW}

Dec 8th 2011 1:23PM Definitely would love to see Varian involved in some questing.

I loved Bolvar as a leader -

Was it because of all that back story? No
Because he was a shining example of a Paladin? No
Because he was a good surrogate Father to Anduin? No

I loved him because when you completed that long quest chain and showed exactly who Lady Prestor really was, only to be swarmed by a dozen elite dragon guards, Bolvar would wade in and happily kick every single one of their scaly black butts.

Just having a faction leader show that "Yep, I may spend most of my days standing around in a throne room, but when push comes to shove I can throw down with the best of them" makes a big difference to how I view them.

Mists of Pandaria: The myth of the talent tree choice {WoW}

Oct 31st 2011 9:13PM Regrettably I can't help but feel he's hit the nail on the head.

I've said it before and I'll say it again -the depressing about being a cynic, isn't being a cynic. It's being right so often.

Breakfast Topic: Who should play your character in the WoW movie? {WoW}

Oct 27th 2011 8:06AM I'm a human warlock, so it has to be Alan Rickman.

Blood Pact: How to be a true warlock {WoW}

Jun 21st 2011 5:21AM Mage vs Warlock is always a case of practical vs AWESOME. Just look at these comparisons.

Summoning:

Mages summon Food and water. This is always appreciated, and possibly the sole reason there is never famine in Azeroth.

Warlocks summon spiked, fiery, toothy monsters intent on eating you and everyone you know, into this world - cause those things are awesome man!

Power

Mages struggling to sustain the energy needed may evocate, change the spell matrix or edit the incantation.

Warlock respond to a spell losing power by slicing open their own wrists, because fuck it - I've got a dimensional horror to summon, and if I can do it drunk, then I can do it woozy from blood loss.

Attire:

Mages wear practical robes (as far as such things go). They are good solid clothes with all the excitement of watching paint dry.

Warlocks won't touch anything with less than 5 skulls on it, preferably in black and if it could get some spikes too that would be great.

The Queue: Memorial Day {WoW}

May 30th 2011 11:05AM Question for the Q

Will bosses in Firelands award more valor points than current bosses since there's less of them?

Or will raiders be expected to do more dailies to cap out valor?

Breakfast Topic: What's the best thing about your guild? {WoW}

May 15th 2011 8:35AM The people.

Anyone who can't say the same thing is in the wrong guild.

Patch 4.2: Shaman and warlock tier 12 sets revealed {WoW}

May 13th 2011 2:12PM Very disappointed by the warlock set. the thing that has always characterized lock sets for me is that they have a very distinctive feature that just screams "warlock" whether it be the demonic wings of T6, the skull helm of T8 or T5's spikes with skulls shoulders.

Looking at this set all that comes to mind is "meh". Nothing particularly hateful, just very generic for a class that has previously had some of the most distinctive sets in the game.

Breakfast Topic: Who is your unsung Cataclysm hero? {WoW}

May 8th 2011 8:40AM Has to be the somewhat psycho/crazy characters from otherwise very serious peaceful organizations.

Thisalee Crow was such a refreshing change from all the other dull "Save the trees/deer/bunnies" characters in Hyjal. It was nice to meet a druid who is A) pretty handy with a blade B) willign to get s*** done.

And one of my all most amusing quests in Cata has to be Stormcaller Myla's interrogation of an ogre in deepholme while dangling him very pointedly over a huge fan, then later we get to see her kicking some ass when the temple is attacked (twice).

The Queue: American Old Gods {WoW}

Apr 15th 2011 11:35AM Question:

Are there any "good" warlocks in the lore? All the player lock's are portrayed as not really being desired, but at least being tolerated for their talent of setting fire to things the horde/alliance don't like. The only warlock lore character I can think of however is Guldan who's about as evil as they come.

Are there any major (or even minor) lore locks that tread the line?

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 8:12AM People who quit PuG's after a single wipe.

Me and my guild group have done every heroic, farmed them to death and then gone and completed the "Glory of the cataclysm hero" achievement, and we still wipe from time to time.

Simple fact is stuff in the new heroics hurts, and if shit happens its probably a wipe - but why you'd bother to queue for heroics if you're not prepared to deal with that is beyond me.
