Apr 8th 2009 11:05AM Actually, I also sell greens for cheap. Sure, bottom-scanners probably do pick up a lot, but you can't assume they do for everything. I don't buy to price up and resell, and I've picked up many items for ridiculously low prices just by chance. And anyway, especially for greens that sub level 20's would wear, the stuff you get from DE'ing isn't all that valuable. I know that when I've been on a new server with a low level char., I really could use that reasonably priced gear.
And at any rate, the argument about high-rolling twinks helping everybody just doesn't hold. The chances of getting a nice BOE blue is small anyway, even smaller for low-level players. Nice greens, sure, it's better, but still nothing to count on. Cash that low-level players can count on still comes from gathering, and that's pretty small potatoes compared to what you can earn at higher levels.

Jun 26th 2007 7:55PM I'm there with 41 and a previous poster. Hyenas. That growling and chomping sound they make when you aggro them drives me CRAZY. Do they do that when they're tamed as hunter pets? How can you stand it? For that matter, the constant crocolisk wheeze is also pretty dang annoying. Clear your throat!
Sure murlocs are entertaining, but the way you can aggro so many at a time is a bit much. So many are linked. I was farming them recently for Thick Murloc Scales at Southshore with my 70 warrior, and my level didn't matter. Smack one at one of their villages and at least 4 more will attack.
Apr 3rd 2007 11:33AM I generally like buffing people, and yeah, the reciprocal buffs are really nice. But I have to admit that I can get crabby and not buff anyone as a result. That means it's time for a short break from WoW.

I certainly believe you when you say that the female Marines you trained and worked with were every bit as capable of meeting the physical requirements that also existed for men.
The logical problem in your argument is that the Marine Corps is an all-volunteer force, with a self-selecting group choosing to enlist. Those who cannot meet the standards either choose not to enlist in the first place or wash out. This holds for males and females who enlist.
Differences in physical capabilities do exist between the male and female populations on average. These differences do not make either gender inherently better or worse.
I went through Navy ROTC in college and was on active duty (Navy) for 5 years. I'm familiar with both methods of training, and know that there are differences between what is asked of men and women in physical fitness tests. Granted, those differences are not as great in the Marine Corps than in the Navy, but the Marine Corps, which holds every member to be an infantryman first, also has higher fitness standards of its members than the Navy does of its own. But note that the Navy has its own fitness standards, and that these are different from what every other service has for its own members.
Feb 16th 2007 9:37AM I figure WoW time is a little like soap opera time. You know, a baby stays a baby for about five years and then, whammo, the baby is suddenly a teenager. One year later, he's out of college and married.
Dec 27th 2006 9:17AM The problem is at this point, the culture at the wow.com forums is pretty nasty. It will take a while to turn around no matter what. Though some forums are better than others: you don't often see flame wars in the professions area, for example.
Social control would be great, but how could it be used in the wow.com forums? Sure, any poster can call any other poster a troll/idiot/whatever, but more often than not that just leads to the same accusations being bounced back. There may be more social pressure in the realm forums, but even so, the anonymity of the internet won't stop most from their freedom to be a jackass. In addition, without a pm system in place in the forums, organizing people across realms to shun certain users would be very difficult.
I agree with the first poster. Blizzard should moderate more strictly. They often seem more interested in being everyone's friend. Or (just as likely), they don't want to allocate the resources to moderating their forums.
Nov 7th 2006 10:12AM I had a weird streak of luck on my dwarf hunter a couple of weeks ago, and had 2-3 BOE blues and 2 BOE epics drop for me in that space of time. The first purple was in fact the first world BOE purple I've ever seen drop, even after a year of playing. It was The Green Tower, http://www.thottbot.com/?i=13797. It took 4 times up on the AH before it was sold. First I based my buyout on the Allakhazam average, about 60g, but got tired of keeping it around (and also paying the auction fee when it failed to sell). I finally got rid of it for 35G. And a day or two later, saw someone advertising the same item on the trade channel. Coincidence? I'm guessing not. I hope you made a profit on it, buddy.
The second was the Robes of Insight, http://www.thottbot.com/?i=5489. I didn't even try to sell that one, just mailed it to my level 31 priest to keep in the bank until she could wear it. Much better. And such a flattering dress for her!
What I'm wondering now is how much to ask for the Tiny Crimson Whelpling I just had drop for another character. I'm guessing that there might be similar difficulties selling it. There were several whelplings listed on the AH for 90G, I'll just have to track it.
