Breakfast Topic: How often do you switch specs? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 8:38AM My toons* don't even have dual-spec, and that includes all my 85s. It's not that they're favorite specs, but I tend to tie spec into character.

*(The only exception is a warrior somewhere in the 50s who can tank as a second spec, but that's about the point in the game where it's least worth the aggravation.)

The Queue: I fail at chess {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 1:14PM "Ah, there you are, Perry the Platypus! Behold, my new Auctionator! Soon I will rule every AH in the tri-state area!"

Breakfast Topic: Do you love to shapeshift? {WoW}

Jan 4th 2012 8:41AM I love shapeshifting! Since I gave up the life of crime, I mostly limit myself to a few default forms, but I'll break out something new on occasion. A tip: If you're going to become a draenei for a con, practice walking first. It's a whole new musculature down there.

Oh, wait, you meant in the game. Never mind. Ignore everything I just said.

Breakfast Topic: How do you decide which is your main? {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2012 8:14AM The short version: Someone told me to pick a main, and Shoikler was my highest-level toon at the time.

The slightly longer version: I started playing in BC, but altitis kept me from seeing Outland before Wrath dropped. I still did the midnight launch, and the guys in line ahead of me asked, "Why are you even here, then? You can't play anything in the expansion! Go home, pick a main, and get him leveled up now!" After I got my shiny new CE signed, I went home and, well, see the short version.

The Daily Grind: Want to make an inaccurate prediction? {Massively}

Jan 1st 2012 10:10AM California passes the Steve Jobs Bill, which includes a provision that all MMOs (sub and F2P) run on OSX. Riots follow.

To counter Mists of Pandaria, TOR announces that its first expansion will be all about the Lepi.

DCUO announces its expansion, "The Brave and the Bold," which will require that players go on missions alongside the most obscure and quirky Silver Age (and earlier) characters developers can get their hands on. Player numbers briefly skyrocket when the Madam Fatal mission becomes a meme.

Fox announces an MMO based on its "smash hit" Terra Nova. The next day, Fox cancels the show.

In October, a presidential debate becomes a full-on shouting match when the candidates are asked, "Horde or Alliance?" Most analysts agree that Obama - who argues for the Horde - wins the night.

The Daily Grind: What's the fastest you've ever burned out on an MMO? {Massively}

Dec 29th 2011 8:08AM I think I had got up to about level... y'know, I think I'll finish my answer later. I'll get back to it, really, maybe in a day or two, but I just need a break right now.
