Sep 11th 2010 7:48PM You mean funny, like, Clara who starts out the show with daily amounts of child abuse/neglect funny?
Funny to my wife and I how that's perceived as really funny to a large amount of people. I have a sister who, when her dog died, she took two weeks off from work and mourned by crying on her couch all day long and could not see anyone. When our grandma died, she informed everyone she was far too busy with work to come to the funeral or anything else related to the subject.
Sep 8th 2010 12:28PM Same. We went to a different server (the 5 of us) and are leveling Horde without any Heirlooms or "cheats" (gold from an 80, etc) for the first time in 3 years. We've been Alliance the last several years and this will be our last go-through in the old world, and we're doing it hardcore Vanilla style.
I miss having 'looms and it's a damn pain in the ass getting gold strictly through doing low level gathering, but man it's really rewarding. :D
We should all be L20 soon, and mounted up and really burning along.
Sep 4th 2010 9:09AM Most definitely important. For all of the reasons already outlined above this post.
Aug 28th 2010 4:04PM Going to delete all my alts save for my two L80s, and those two are going into retirement. I may possibly log onto them and do some things occasionally, but I doubt it. I'm mainly keeping them in case the "Vanilla WoW servers" rumors come true, but more so because I've put a ton of work into them, and they're old.
That said, I'm starting completely over, maybe even on a different server. From what I've done in Beta thus far, it doesn't seem I'd be hurting for gold by doing so, and I honestly am tired of heirlooms, especially now with the upgraded, awesome looking low level starting gear. It'd be like playing WoW for the first time, all over again, so many, many years ago.
My new main is going to be a Human Hunter; I've waited a long damn time for those. I'm not sure what else I'll eventually roll, but the Hunter's going to get all my play time for a long while, which is a big change from someone who is a notorious alt-holic.
Aug 18th 2010 8:28AM Amen to that.
As you said, be very careful about who you're bringing in if you're a small guild.
Aug 18th 2010 8:21AM Yes, and I'm still kicking them as they rear their heads. It seems every time we made progression enough to get people out of doing Heroics and begin 10 man content (small guild with far more casual people, think 100, than people who wanted to "do more", think just 12 or less at any one time), something would happen and we'd go from finally having a group to "need about one/two more committed people to start".
First it was the healers who could do no wrong, and would make demands on who they ran with, who they would not run with and have profanity-filled rants in PMs about other guildmates or the guild leaders themselves. This also spilled out into guild chat frequently.
Then the tanks were just simply too leet to run with us. Rather than being in a guild where their spots were guaranteed and not threatened by other tanks, we instead got told we were too backwater for their time after so many weeks.
DPS got in on it too, starting problems and annoying the living piss out of everyone.
Recently even, we had a junior officer take things out of the officer tab (blues, purples and hard to find items that only trusted officers are allowed access to, to give out to members who NEED them) and go and sell them in the auction house to pad his funds for his dual spec on his alt druid.
In the end, I came to many of the same conclusions. I'd rather run older content and help long-time members level alts than spend any amount of the free time I spend in WoW playing with total gaping buttholes.
Currently in the Beta, I see now the pains Blizzard is taking to fix so many problems WoW has had over the years, and hopefully make WoW a game that griefers and arses will not be attracted to anymore.
In the meantime, all you can do is keep the good people and get rid of the bad, and listen to them cuss you all the way out the door (as bad people are prone to do). Sure, progression has ground to a halt amidst the population drop server-wide and we mostly log on and chat and do odd / fun things before Cataclysm comes, but it's a lot more serene.
Aug 2nd 2010 9:09AM Log out in a closed zone, or an area of a zone that's currently off limits, like inside current day Gilneas, Western Dun Morogh, West Stonetalon Mountains or the area between Badlands and Loch Modan, or the massive empty area just up above Grim Batol and to the Northeast of Loch Modan.
Safe? Hell no. But fun? Well... if you're an explorer.
They'll likely hearth us somewhere though. :(
Jul 31st 2010 8:01AM I'm late to this, but man oh man, I hopes I wins!
Jul 26th 2010 7:52PM Orc girls FTW. Can't wait for my Orc girl Mage come CC.
Jul 22nd 2010 9:24PM This idea of Chris-to-pher...Wal-ken...as Death-wing...amuses me.
