Breakfast Topic: Is WoW inherently sexist? {WoW}

May 17th 2011 9:44AM Oh yes. I don't mind the boobalicious portrayal of women at all, but I would like something that is appealing for me to look at, being a woman meself. My own nice pixelated male slave, pretty please, yes yes?
I find Arnold Schwarzenegger absolutely terrifying to look at, so arms that are twice the size of somebody's waist don't get my juices flowing.

A Johnny Depp shaped pixelated slave however.... with a new pirate class..... with the option to hide chest armor..... raaaawrrr!

Oh well, one can always dream.

Drama Mamas: Vent troubles vs. That Guy {WoW}

Mar 25th 2011 10:11PM I don't like Lisa's comment at all.

Leadership, either in a wow setting or in a broader setting, involves dealing with the people you are leading. See what I did there? I used the words "dealing with" and "people".

Being a good leader in my world is communicating with the people you direct towards a common goal. Yes, as a leader you want your followers to have knowledge about the content you all are trying to tackle. When you are in the car sales business it does of course help when everybody has read the memo about sales targets for this month.

But when one of your employees explicitly mails you: "I can't read your memo, please send it again, because when I tried to read it my computer crashed" and you only respond with: "Go fuck yourself, I don't read emails, you retard, how dare you to send me emails", you should be the one to be sacked.

Leadership is not a free ticket to total assholery. Leadership is a heavy task which involves inspiring people. Sure, you can adopt a Machiavellian approach to raiding, but ffs, wow is a game. With people. And when you even can't be bothered to read chat, why don't you just buy Guitar Hero and take the 'ole pecker on a walk on your own.

Patch 4.0.6 PTR notes updated for Jan. 12 {WoW}

Jan 13th 2011 8:15AM You know, you should start your own comedy show with your perfect nerd rage impersonation. Especially the mixture of bad spelling and superior arrogance is spot on; did you study forums intensively to come up with the phrase "intellegent stratergy" or did this wonderful example of ironic contradiction come in a divine flash of inspiration?

In any case: well done, and keep up the good work! You are a source of entertainment!

Breakfast Topic: That voice you can't get out of your head {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2010 10:12AM Oh yes. Especially since the Big Bad Wolf has a pretty sexy deep voice, and after he singsongs "run away little girl run away", he has this nice lazy chuckle... it's actually tempting to allow yourself to be caught by this deep manly sounding... erm....

(God, what am I saying, I need to go out more into the fresh air, do some healthy exercise, maybe a cold shower afterward...)

Interact with target keybind gets you past players atop NPCs {WoW}

Dec 16th 2010 1:46PM Aaaaawww... you tease! Please do tell, unless its Booty Bay, which is ofc useless as an Ah, since my glyph alt would be so happy to know this:)

The Daily Blues {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 9:49AM Yes, and the whole thread is an amusing read, with as a favorite somebody declaring that anybody who doesn't complain about the removal of portals is probably unemployed scum living from government money with too much time on their hands, because decent people with jobs don't have time for all that wasteful traveling around.

Level 80+ to gain only 10% experience from Wrath mobs {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 7:41AM Strangely enough I am pretty annoyed by this change. It's a kind of micromanagement meddling that makes me feel I am dropped back into kindergarten again.
"No Dame, you have to stop making a drawing, now we will all play with the dolls"

At the moment I have 7 level 80 characters. I know that once I have leveled number 5 to max level, I will be so bored with the Cata starting zones, that it will be fun to revisit Icecrown again to do some leveling. And what's the harm in that.

They already have my money from buying the Xpac, so who cares if I decide not to actually quest in the Cata areas for a while.

Time between Cataclysm pre-event phases ramping up {WoW}

Nov 14th 2010 5:46PM About the people who compare things to the pre-wrath events and think things are boring this time around: I think they are too impatient.

On hindsight you remember only the big moments, the dull bits in between you forget. As I understand it, in the next pre-Cata phase cities will be invaded by elementals, high level players have to barricade the place and kill tons of them, low level players have to leave the city completely... it sounds badass enough to me.

Gold Capped: Auctionator addon helps you buy, sell and profit {WoW}

Nov 11th 2010 1:42PM You can use both, simply install them both and they will have their own separate tabs in the AH window.

The Queue: Dog and pony show {WoW}

Nov 7th 2010 7:37AM A question: The info I found on gaining guild rep in Cata confuses me a little.
As far as I understand it: the guild needs to improve the guild's standing to unlock rewards for it's members, and the individual members must gain guild rep to be able to buy these unlocked rewards.

Some sources say your individual rep mainly will be increased by doing quests that give you experience, and that the system is not retroactive: your rep starts at zero in Cata, regardless of former personal achievements.

My main is Loremaster already. In theory this would mean that I am at a disadvantage; simply because I already have completed almost all available quests in the current content. A player that would start his trip to Loremaster after Cata goes live would have a lot more quests at his disposal to increase his rep.

So, tl;dr: Are current Loremasters at a disadvantage when they are trying to gain guild rep?

And on a related note: is there a new variety of Loremaster in Cata, one where you do all the new quests in both the low level and high level zones in Azeroth?
