Know Your Lore: The Twilight Dragonflight, page 2 {WoW}

Mar 15th 2010 11:05PM Actually, where do the albino drakes come from? Since dragonkin are so tied to their flight by color, how do you get a white one? Does its flight forsake it because it was born white? Why does Mel Francis have drakes anyway?

The Daily Quest: Waiting for the Cataclysm {WoW}

Mar 10th 2010 5:35PM All I have to say is,
OMG OMG OMG YAY MOAR QWEST!
I looooove questing, was almost disappointed when I got Loremaster, until I realized how many more quests were left to do. When Cata hits, I'll probably haul my pasty undead warlock ass down to the low level zones to check out the changes and new quests, before I even start leveling and before everyone else levels to gank me. Then after dealing with the level 85's for a couple weeks I'll get down to leveling. We shall see.

O! Also the professions. Archaeology sounds awesome.

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: New mounts, models [Updated] {WoW}

Feb 21st 2010 8:14PM Hope the mounts are easier to obtain than "1 in 1000 chance on hard mode" style that we've seen lately. Maybe the Northrend factions are finally getting mounts? Rhino for Taunka? I could definitely see the Taunka riding rhinos since there aren't too many kodos around Northrend...or much else that could hold a Tauren.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Red shirt mistake {WoW}

Feb 21st 2010 8:04PM So do you expect all straight people to ask the orientation of their love interest too?

The lesson ought to be "don't be a dick...especially in WoW where we have no moral compunctions about griefing griefers." Or perhaps "we're sick and tired of homophobia in WoW."

New seasonal vanity pet, the Toxic Wasteling {WoW}

Feb 7th 2010 2:40PM Anyone know the drop rate? Is it a sure thing or am I probably going to be sad like the horseman and the scorchling?

Breakfast Topic: Did Arthas do the right thing in Stratholme? {WoW}

Jan 31st 2010 5:39PM The quest line in Icecrown that ends with "Light within the darkness." Basically, there's this valiant light following crusader who falls victim to the plague, and you get to run around the known world begging of dragons and demigods, and finally, all that can be done for the crusader is..."the light will take care of it's own." Spoiler: he doesn't recover. He's basically granted death before undeath. It's a highly poetic way of doing exactly what Arthas did in the Culling.

To this playable day in Azeroth, is there a single case of undeath being cured? Then Arthas was right not to try to contain the plague and find a cure. There is none, and the people-turned-scourge would have gotten out (they always do) and spread the plague.

Waiting until they turn to kill them would have been stupid for a follower of the light. The plague corrupts the soul, shattering any chance they'd have in the after life.

In short, Arthas did not only the right thing, he did what /had/ to be done. The least of infinite evils.

Jaina and Uther, by the way, didn't stop Arthas (I bet they could have), but walked away. Making them anciallary to the Culling. Making them responsible too. Sounds like they pretty much knew that Arthas' plan was what had to be done and there was no better way, but they were spineless and ballsless and "couldn't watch Arthas do this."

So maybe the Culling itself was "evil" if you take absolutist stand point, but it was certainly the least evil of the options. I'd say that makes it morally permissible. But I play Undead. It was the greatest good for the greatest number of people; hell, it was even the best way for the people of Stratholme.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Target marking, the end of lowbie raids, and other UI tweaks {WoW}

Oct 15th 2009 5:52PM Now how are we supposed to down Hogger?

Enter to win a Creative WoW headset from WoW.com and Creative {WoW}

Oct 14th 2009 4:10PM Very cool. I'd wish everyone luck, but I think it would be entirely ineffective.
