Sep 21st 2009 8:43AM Simple. Work at it. As an 80 prot warrior, just scraping 27k health and only 50/50 blues-to-epics, the only real answer is to get into as many groups as you can. If you've got a good guild and can avoid PuGs, then so much the better.
The problem is that there's a more varied and interesting spread of gear to talk about in the 'big-boy' raids than there is in the run up to those raids. There's a fairly limited amount of gear that you can get, and is worth talking about until you start hitting Naxxramas and beyond.
Apr 21st 2008 6:20PM I know how you feel - my heart breaks every time I accidentally kill a squirrel, rat or other critter when I drop a Thunderclap, and they're standing too close.
Apr 14th 2008 4:38PM This raises the question that, if GMs can track back through logs to some wannabe con man like this, then why do so many people who find themselves keylogged and/or hacked have such trouble getting Blizzard to reimburse lost cash and items?
I understand that there are time and effort constraints, and storage issues to consider, but if this level of work can be put into something like this, surely it could be put into something more serious?
Nov 29th 2007 4:12PM I agree with some of your points Coherent, especially about not having to explain why new players are missing out. However, I don't subscribe to the belief that there are no companies out there able to out-do Blizzard, or beat WoW.
Copique - How do I advocate keeping low-level content? For the reason I outlined in the post - it's required to teach new players how to play the game to a higher standard. I'd love for the lore in WoW to change and grow, but I'm willing to see some parts of it stay the same if it means a (hopefully) better standard of player.

Officially my new forum signature - thanks Mike!
Nov 29th 2007 4:01PM Something about the sounds effects accompanying this fight always set my teeth on edge - very weired, and not a little disconcerting.
Nov 3rd 2007 1:52PM My thanks to Dan for putting this up, but Auden is correct, I'm not the original Alamo, I just picked up the mod after TBC came out.
@ everyone else though - just try to remember that Durids is can't spell Alamoo without LMAO!!
And if you can't remember that, then just try not to flame something just because you don't find it funny.
Nov 1st 2007 6:41AM There was a beggar in Orgrimmar who was being really annoying one afternoon while I was trying to do some AH work. He kept PM'ing me asking for 10G, eventually I replied and told him I'd go one better.
I opened up a Trade window, dropped 100G in there, then walked away and had a coffee. I alway wonder how long he waited before leaving.
Oct 25th 2007 6:32AM Getting access to Blizzard's hard data would be very interesting indeed. Unfortunately, the way most players' minds think, you would see massive server desertions as players flocked to either a high-pop server or low-pop server, depending on what they were looking for.
I think you'd end up with server populations weighted one of two ways - either very high population or very low population, with nothing really in between.
It's probably best that Blizzard keeps this info under wraps, because let's face it - your average player is pretty stupid.
Oct 25th 2007 6:15AM A good catch, Eliah.
Anyone who thinks that the Interceptor page offers anything like real security or actually protects anyone apart from Blizzard is kidding themselves on.
The sole purpose of the Interceptor page is so that Blizzard can claim you were warned before you jumped onto a site laden with keyloggers. Anyone stupid enough to click on a link that turns out to be malicious, without reading it over first to check, needs more than the Interceptor to help them.
