Oct 22nd 2011 8:02PM I love this. I am a Frost mage and I won't change. I started as frost and I will continue as frost. To me, frost is fun. I tried arcane. I tried fire. I got bored. Not so much with fire as arcane, but still. Frost mages should stand proud.
Oct 7th 2011 1:58AM Not sure about eye patches, but one of the guys in BRD drops a cloth monocle. My mage still has that thing.
Oct 7th 2011 1:50AM Personally, I'm hoping for a monk class. Let's see those fist weapons find a use finally. :)
Oct 6th 2011 2:38PM Q4TQ: I really dread using LFG without a guild group anymore because of a lot of the noob stuff that goes on in level 85 dungeons. I keep thinking that these people must have never run a dungeon in their life.
Then, when I started leveling a healer, I noticed that people in dungeons do the same stupid stuff at level 15 that they do at level 85. Stuff like not attacking the tank's target, which seems to be the big culprit. When I (and my guild tank) called them on it, their excuse was "You know it's not heroic mode, right? It's easy."
It seems to me that there's an attitude that just because you CAN zerg something, you should, but isn't a part of dungeon running learning to work as a team? If you want to solo, then go quest. Dungeons are designed to be run as a team, and if you can't learn to work on a team at level 15, how much less will you be able to function on a team at level 85?
I've gotten to a point where I just don't heal them if they're being stupid like that. I'm sure I could, but they have to learn some time. So my question is, just because you can, does that really mean you should?
Aug 29th 2011 1:09PM I actually had a guy in my guild who would QQ because we wouldn't say congrats to every achievement that popped up. He didn't seem to realise that sometimes, you just don't notice when someone earns an achievement. If you're healing a heroic, you're paying attention to people's health pools. If you're dpsing (at least if you're doing it right) you're paying attention to moving when you need to move and other stuff. Even tanks will be paying attention to other stuff than guild chat.
This is true whether you're in a small, medium, or large guild. If you're concentrating on other things, it is very easy to not notice when someone logs in or gets an achievement. Even sitting around Trade chat, things will go by so fast that it's very easy to miss achievements and the like.
While officers should lead by example, you still aren't going to catch every achievement that pops up unless you are doing nothing else but staring at guild chat the entire time you're logged in, and anyone who complains about greetings and congratulations does need to stop and think about *why* it's not happening.
Yes, it could be people feeling like they're chased out of guild chat, but it could also simply be that people are just concentrating on slightly more important things.
Aug 16th 2011 12:01PM My only problem with the 4.2 daily quest hub is that it gets to be too convoluted with other players and that creates a whole lag fest. Like Stormwind. Ugh. I have a friend who can't even go to SW without DC'ing. What would be nice is if they stopped trying to force all the players into one spot. Why can't the Earthen Ring open portals in IF or Darnassus?
I would love the idea of a one-man instance specifically because then I wouldn't have to deal with lag.
Aug 12th 2011 3:14AM Q4TQ: I hear a lot of comments about Mists of Panderia and the possibilities that Pandaren might be a new race, and also some comments on hero classes in the new expansion, but what are the odds of them introducing a monk class. Not a hero class, just an everyday, run of the mill class. I see them as cloth wearing melee utilizing fist weapons. Is it possible they could be introduced at some point?
Aug 2nd 2011 4:52PM I still use fire spec occassionally, but I'm not a hardcore raider by any means, so I usually just stay in my beloved frost spec. And maybe it's just me, but I have noticed that, as frost, my damage numbers in heroics are still on par with fire and arcane mages. The only real issue I run into is mana. Frost uses mana like mad. I used frost in BH on the first boss and my numbers were great until the end, when I had no more mana to use. >.< That's why I made the switch to fire spec.
Jul 20th 2011 2:38AM It's maybe less of a mystery place and more if an interesting nook, but in Duskwood, behind the Mistmantle Manor, there's a path leading up to a small graveyard. Every now and then, there's a rare spawn there. A ghost who is kneeling near the graves. I always thought that spot was kind of neat.
Jul 1st 2011 2:44AM Ah, never mind. It was just my ipod acting up. Feel free to down vote to oblivion.
