Breakfast Topic: Do you like PvP? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 8:05AM I enjoy large scale pvp, nowadays the large battlegrounds, before WotLK I was on a very active wpvp realm, that was all I did in wow more or less. Just running a few bgs and arenas to get gear. When WotLK was realesed it was like it had gone away over night, I don't acctually know what happend all of a sudden our wpvp realm had become pve oriented.

Miss those days sometimes. Still enjoy the game immensly though.

2 crafting professions that won't make you rich {WoW}

Mar 5th 2012 7:09AM I've recently made lots of money selling glyphs. Really check the market on you realm before dismissing being a scribe.

Also I've seen a large increase in sold glyphs the last couple of weeks. My guess is that lots of people are done with current content and are now working on alts until the arrival of Mists.

Breakfast Topic: Which race has the best starting zone? {WoW}

Feb 27th 2012 9:03AM I'm a die-hard Alliance player and have to say that I completely agree, the forsaken starting zone and it's followups are amazing. On the contrary to Grace's take on it I love the draenei starting zone, I remember it being quite difficult when I first did it, but now it seems much easier. I also enjoy the night elf starting zone.

All the others are quite horrible acctually. I have a clear distaste for Elwynn and Dun Morgoh.

Should WoW players be responsible for player accountability? {WoW}

Feb 9th 2012 5:18AM One way this might work is if by giving negative votes you also give yourself one negative vote. This won't be a problem cause you're a good guy and has lots of positive votes (you do don't you?!). This way you won't downvote people just because you can since you'll in the process downvote yourself. While you won't get anything for voting up, you'd do that just because you'd want good people to be rewarded.

Example 1: 5-man dungeon. Asshat comes in downvotes everyone. Each person gets -1, asshat gets -4.

Example 2: Verbally abusive ninja-looter is in your group. Everyone downvotes him. You get -1 in the process. Ninja-looter gets -4.

Breakfast Topic: What was your most memorable noob moment? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 9:54AM I play alot of alts through dungeons at all levels and I see people doing this every day at all ranges from 15-85. I usually nicely explains the taunt mechanic to them and they are grateful but I've also encountered people who've been rude and still insisted that it's a part of the rotation.

So to make you feel better: It's a common mistake :)

Breakfast Topic: What was your most memorable noob moment? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 9:41AM I was just the same, trying to be a bear as much as possible. Somewhere around level 35 or so on top of my gear realisations also realised there where more than the Balance tree to put points in...

Breakfast Topic: What was your turning point in WoW? {WoW}

Nov 27th 2011 9:21AM I've had a bunch of turning points, after leveling up my first character I was for some time a die hard wpvper (when there still was such a thing). Through that I came to heal. That led me to raids, late BC and the entire WotLK I was a progression raid healer. Then real life demanded much more and that led me to play the auction house for a few minutes a day and chat with some friends. Now I have a bit more time again and now I'm leveling alts and doing som BGs.

I go wherever the combination of real life and WoW takes me.

The Queue: Almost 7 years since release {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 2:57PM QftQ: Should I, out of courtesy, cause a wipe when the final boss in a random dungeon is just about done and some people have died during the encounter so they'll get their bonus xp?

I just rolled my first tank ever and this happend my first run, and the two who died where pretty upset that we didn't wipe it. Before I've only played healer and some dps and I just know that I personally would definitely not want my group to have to run back through the entire dungeon so I could get some xp that I will earn questing in the time it takes to run back.

Gold Capped: How to get around realm transfer gold limits {WoW}

Nov 11th 2011 9:48AM Try finding a market that is profitable on your realm. On my old realm I found that potions were a big hit. Potion mastery ftw! It's always in demand if there's an active raiding community. I have an alt with maxed out alchemy and blacksmithing. I have him sitting around SW.

I use the addon TSM set up for the markets I want to play, took me maybe an hour to set up to my liking. The addon scans the AH for all the materials I need, I never farm or even leave SW with this character, it buys all the materials I need if what I can craft from the exceeds 20% profit, TSM takes care of the math for me, it automates the buying and the crafting and posting on the AH. Even the sending of the gold to my main.

10 minutes a day with this character has built me a small fortune and depending on what time of year he nets me a profit in between 200g-3000g for these 10 minutes I've invested. I would recommend a few thousand gold as base to build your fortune on, I accutally started with less than 500g, and when I hit my first 10k I could start buying the large quantities needed to make alot of gold.

Gold Capped: How to get around realm transfer gold limits {WoW}

Nov 11th 2011 9:15AM I made this transfer recently for the exact same reasons. Moving from a high population realm to one with low population to play with people I enjoyed playing with. I had well over the limit of gold to transfer.

But since I went from a high to low population server my origin server had an abundance of boe epics whereas the destination server had a severe shortage. Initially I just assumed I would lose gold in the moving process and had counted on that. The reality turned out to be about a +75% income on all my gold exceeding the initial 50k. Had I known this I would have invested them in epics also :)
