Jul 17th 2011 10:10PM Not sure if this has been pointed out yet, but I was excited to see that you can now change the order of your characters on your login screen.
Apr 20th 2011 1:44PM My friend gave me a T8.5 t-shirt. It had a little tag printed on the back with its stats. +10 to fashion!
Apr 20th 2011 1:40PM When I was regularly running ZG for mounts, I would always join up for Wintergrasp. When the bg ended, I waited until most people dropped group, but there were always inevitably a few people who logged off without dropping group, and I could go solo raiding without fear of being kicked out (provided nobody in the group had the same idea and beat me to the instance).
Feb 24th 2011 9:35PM I'm often the healer half of a healer-tank team, and one of the worst runs was with 3 dps from the same guild on another server. Heroic Grim Batol, and they refused to CC or let my tank pull. The warrior decided to don tank gear and take over pulling everything just as we reached the first boss. Although it wasn't a wipefest and my tank buddy switched to dps without complaint, I was irritated--mostly because they didn't say anything at all, just left us to react as best we could.
Feb 17th 2011 9:39PM Does a kick-initiator get penalized if the vote fails? I'm a healer, but it annoys me when people vote-kick players who are not being a problem at all (usually with "dfgdfgdfg" as a supplied reason), and I don't support the vote unless the need is dire. But I hope those failed votes still count against the initiator.
Feb 17th 2011 9:27PM Everyone I know definitely holds stereotypes about those of us who play WoW. Like some of the other commentors, I have more social relationships thanks to WoW than I would otherwise, being a rather quiet person who doesn't seem to have much in common with my coworkers.
I wish I could feel comfortable enough to tell my family that I play, but I know they wouldn't understand no matter how much I try to explain the game and what it means to me. The worst part is that I find WoW academically fascinating enough to have done my MA thesis on animals in the game--and am too embarrassed to let anyone I know read my thesis, even though it was a hit amongst my examining committee and fellow classmates. Although my boyfriend used to play too (we raided together throughout WotLK), he discouraged me from talking about my research work with any of his friends. So I have to say yes, I hate stereotypes about the hobby I enjoy.
Feb 15th 2011 4:10PM Why does my Farson Hold Prisoner run around aimlessly sometimes, and ride away without acknowledging my help?
Feb 14th 2011 5:14PM It's nice to acknowledge someone's achievement, but it can get really out of hand. In a former guild, several members had an addon that would automatically post a congratulatory message in guild chat, sometimes even before the achievement itself popped. It made congrats feel so insincere that it cause several of us to leave the guild.
I have over 10k achievement points myself, so it is nice when my hard work is acknowledged--but it should be both earned and sincerely bestowed.
Feb 10th 2011 11:20PM I logged on to find that I had been awarded the 50-rep achievement, so I did not actually lose my title. I do think it's wrong to remove it from players who had achieved it, and they ought to have implemented a Loremaster-style approach (if you had it already, you keep it; but in the future people will have to do the updated meta).
I'm finding this expansion that I'm not able to do any regular raiding, so I'm left to experience the game primarily solo. Being an achievement hound, Exalted was one thing that I was able to achieve on my own, and I would be very upset if I had lost my title. It took a lot of work and time--this sort of thing makes that time feel wasted, for those whose reward has been taken away.
Jan 10th 2011 12:48PM I noticed this too! Every time I loot a keystone there's a creepy voice.
