Breakfast Topic: Do you like PvP? {WoW}

Apr 4th 2012 12:54AM I like learning the progress of a PvE fight. Learning what's expected and when, how to handle situations. Practicing, rehearsing, making mistakes and trying again.

PvP to me is just pure chaos. I never know what to do. BGs are long and drawn out, sometimes on purpose (I sincerely despise WSG, losing badly and the other team prefers to farm honor rather than simply cap the last flag and let us move on).

Impatience and hate run high. There's no tolerance for players trying to learn.

World PvP to me means griefing. It means dead questgivers and flight masters. It means giving up playing, because someone's idea of fun is to keep you from having any. And if you dare to try to fight back, you end up corpse-camped.

Never liked PvP.

3 robeless transmogrification looks for the fashionable caster {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 9:13PM Anyone have a suggestion for a good place to get help when you have the basis of an outfit, but are crappy at hunting down accessories for it?

BTW, one would think that "hawt leather" wouldn't be so darned hard to find. :-/

Drama Mamas: The mystery behind guildchat silence {WoW}

Mar 26th 2012 11:02PM One of those few times I'll disagree with the Mamas.

One of the things Shy Sister noted is that some of the newer guildies are joining into the banter. This is probably the best thing that could happen for SS, leading to her relaxing a bit and finding some new friends to actually TALK to.

In a real-world context, SS would be the wallflower in the corner of the room. Her sister joins her, they start chit-chatting. Another person wanders over, and after getting a sense of the topic, joins in. The wallflower realizes there's common ground here, and begins to open up a bit.

This coming from a very experienced wallflower.

Our guild chat goes in fits and spurts. Sometimes people are very talkative, sometimes not. But there's one common denominator: If someone's being annoying, someone else WILL make a snarky, trollish comment. Silence before and silence after means nothing has changed in regards to guild chat as far as the older members are concerned. They're just ignoring the channel like they used to.

Drama Mamas: The love triangle strikes again {WoW}

Mar 21st 2012 2:21AM Jatt and Martin, you need to actually read the original column from/to Troubled Tank to see the context from which the RP replies are drawn.

What makes a bad word bad? {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2012 2:14AM My short-and-sweet personal rule, for whatever good it may do.

Mature language requires the maturity to know when, where, and with whom it's appropriate.

Maturity inherently includes the ability to consider other people around you, and how they are different from you in thought, culture, and sensibility.

Shifting Perspectives: Post-BlizzCon feral thoughts {WoW}

Oct 26th 2011 4:56AM Morcego, you're falling into a common trap. You're considering the changes you can see, with a foundation of the Feral-that-is.

Put yourself back at the turn of the century. Someone's telling you that someday soon a couple of hundred people will be able to fly together through the air at hundreds of miles per hour, all over the world. You scoff and say, "You can't make a horse and carriage fly!"

You're trying to see changes to bears through the lenses of current conditions. It doesn't work. The whole foundation will be different. That's why you have to just wait and see how it works out in practice instead of waving it off without enough knowledge.

Shifting Perspectives: Post-BlizzCon feral thoughts {WoW}

Oct 26th 2011 4:21AM No, as I recall, you won't be automatically getting anything on the talent selections. You're supposed to have a totally free choice among the three items, and you cannot have more than one item on each line. Thus, if Balance got Typhoon automatically, they'd be locked out of Mass Entanglement and Faerie Swarm. That rather defeats the purpose of having the talents at all.

What they meant is stuff essential to the spec, that you get while leveling. Like, for Balance, Moonkin form. Typhoon is not an essential spell for caster DPS and is being opened up to all druids as a choice at level 45.

Hope that kinda clears it up.

BlizzCon preview sale opens at 10 a.m. Friday for virtual ticket holders {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2011 1:36AM Not sure about the "?" key art items having to do with a WoW xpac spoiler. Note that the official Diablo 3 design is also hidden... and that would actually be integral to the key art this year.

Hacker groups tried to take down WoW ... and failed {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 4:48AM Wulfkin,

Anonymous is nothing to admire. It's cyber-terrorism. It's as deplorable as anyone else who attacks or threatens someone for doing something the attacker doesn't like.

Businesses have the right to make business decisions. By supporting Anonymous against PayPal, you're basically saying PayPal should be stripped of the rights granted any other business because you don't agree with them.

That way lies a really, really slippery slope.

The Queue: Shaders {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2011 1:15PM For whatever odd reason, Shardvark makes me think of Landshark.

Shaardvark seems to get your wordplay across better, IMHO.
