Breakfast Topic: Where do you want your character to die? {WoW}

Sep 27th 2011 6:42PM Well, I don't know about his character, but that comment just flat-lined...

Scott Mercer details Deathwing raid encounter {WoW}

Sep 21st 2011 9:07PM Okay, lets never fight a dragon again. The next time that a giant dragon busts up your house and kills your children before eating their corpses, lets just let him go about his merry way. And the next time a dragon kills you? Stay dead! Let 'em win one, those dragons!

You hear that, internet dragons? We're not fighting you anymore, so you just... go away. That's right, take all your virtual... dragon-ness and just LEAVE.

We don't want you anymore, you big, stupid, internet dragons! So just GO!

Oh, and one more thing? We're keeping the kids. And the house. We hope you don't mind. Because if you really wanted to, you could destroy them both and we wouldn't lift a finger.

Freaking internet dragons...

Know Your Lore: The Kor'kron, fists of the Warchief {WoW}

Sep 8th 2011 7:45PM I always liked the Kor'kron, and the 7th Legion. It's one of the few places where there's an entire organization that's more badass than you, no matter how many ancient abominations of evil you destroy. Yeah, yeah, you beat C'Thun in a 40 v 1 fight, but THEY are the ones who opened up a path for you to get there in the first place. Sure, you killed the Betrayer. They're still the ones who paved the way.
Oh, and, of course, you killed the Lich King. But, just for curiosity's sake, who's ship to ride up there?

That's right.

Victory or death.

Aug 19th 2011 9:47PM Simple. Level a pally for Judgement set XD

Seriously, though, I'd go with the druid. I don't know, but locks and mages always seem to have generic sets. Mages get floaty crystals a lot, and locks get fangs and horns. Now, I never really played either class till Cataclysm (actually the end of Wrath), so I'm probably missing some epic, awesome-looking set that mages/locks had back in vanilla or BC. Whatevs.

Aug 19th 2011 9:43PM Okay, if the Old God behind the Infinite Dragonflight (if they're even controlled by an Old God... which everything bad is, at some point) turns out to be named Kna'ak, I will:
1.) Pee my pants.
2.) Donate five million kajillion dollars to whichever WoW dev that green-lighted that.
3.) Pee my pants.
4.) Make a mage, name it Rhoninpony, level it up to whatever level, and kill that bastard EVERY. SINGLE. RAID LOCKOUT PERIOD. EVER.
5.) For all time.
6.) Then pee my pants again, because there is no time to go to the restroom while camping Kna'ak every second of every day.

Pretty please?

Aug 19th 2011 6:51PM They were just trying to fix a problem that a lot of people had with Arthas. If I remember correctly, people were kinda weirded out that the final boss of the ENTIRE expansion kept showing up in level 70 solo-quests.

You see, Arthas was very... visible, in Wrath. Whatever zone you ended up in, you either saw his minions doing something VERY bad, or you saw the big man himself. With that expac, it truly felt as though the world would end if we didn't kill him in time.
But, on the downside, he was kinda "diminished" by showing up so often. I mean, everyone saw him at least like, four times. At the end, some people (not me, mind you) felt that he had become more of a joke than a threat, because every time we saw him, WE won. I mean, literally, he's like the stereotypical view of the French military.
Search: "Famous Victories of the Lich King"
Don't you mean, "famous DEFEATS?"

Anyway, Blizz tried to fix that this time around by making Deathwing a bit harder to see. I mean, sure, we battle his minions all the time, but the guy doesn't show up all the frickin time and get his giant dragon-ass handed to him by a level 81 paladin wearing cloth. No, he torches random zones, and almost never shows up. This has the upside of making him seem more threatening, but it also makes the whole story of the expansion a little moot. Yeah, Ragnarous is trying to burn the World Tree, and Deathwing told him to. So what? Deathwing's never tried to kill ME (random zone-torching non-withstanding).

TL;DR: Arthas was all "in your face" for the entire expansion, and kinda looked like a tool for it. Deathwing, meanwhile, was all aloof and seemed like more a hipster. Which is probably why he was in Deepholm when it was still underground.

Totally worth it.

You forgot bad plot holes. Which (taking into consideration all the "lore" on the subject) is pretty much what the Maelstrom is. A plot hole that you could fly an Aspect through.

In all seriousness, I actually kinda want to fight bad plot devices. These would be represented in game as various races that didn't exist at the time, somehow showing up and stealing our loot. Then we get to hunt them down, kill them mercilessly, and steal our loot BACK.

Take THAT, ninjas...
