WoW Moviewatch: Alexstrasza {WoW}

Aug 19th 2010 12:35PM Well, only the female red dragons have names ending in -strasza, the males have names ending in -strasz like Korialstrasz. Still, there's enough female red dragons that it works just fine!

Know Your Lore: The Eternals part three -- the Titans, page 2 {WoW}

Jul 26th 2010 1:15AM As far as we have been able to decipher, there are two "races" of titans as we know them, the Aesir and Vanir. This is an extremely obvious reference to the Aesir and Vanir gods of Norse mythology. Aesir means "storm giant" in common, just as Vanir means "earth giant."

The Aesir in WoW are the platinum skinned Titans. They are connected to storms, seas and the sky, as their name suggests. Aman'thul, Norgannon and Golganneth in the Pantheon are all Aesir titans. It is assumed that Thorim, Hodir and Loken fall under this as well.

The Vanir are the bronze skinned titans. I'm sure it will come as a shock, but the titans whose name means "earth giant" are connected with the earth and stone. Eonar, Khaz'goroth, Aggramar and Sargeras are all Pantheon (or Ex-Pantheon) vanir. It is assumed that Ironaya, Freya, both Maidens and (debatably) Myzrael fall under this.

There are also the storm giants we see in game, such as the Storm Giant wandering around Howling Fjord, pretending to be a Fel Reaver. It is quite likely that these are creations of the Titans, such as the sea and mountain giants, and that their name is similar to that of the Aesir due to their elemental sphere. However, there is a theory that these are a result of Aesir titans being affected by the Curse of Flesh.

Considering that the Pantheon is evenly divided up between Aesir and Vanir titans, and that these "races" of titans are explicitly based on those of the Norse gods, it is highly unlikely that other types of titans exist. Their creations, however, are various in type. If they can create things like Mechagnomes, any sort of other creations are possible.

It's at times like these I appreciate the fact I carry around 2 backup bows.

Free realm transfers announced {WoW}

May 25th 2010 8:29PM For anyone interested in hearing the story of the demise of Drak'thul (From the PoV of a Horde player; though I assume that the basic plot, if not the destination, is similar for the Alliance.), this is how it went:

A long time ago, there existed a server called Drak'thul. This server was a Low Pop PvP server, that oft-times seemed to have a disproportionate number of fail PuGs and trade chat trolls compared to those of a similar nature. Whenever one ventured into the streets of Dalaran, cries of "Anal [Frenzy]" and "DID SOMEONE SAY [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker?!?" filled the air. Although the server had good players on it, just like any other, it seemed like the WoW division of 4chan whenever someone had the misfortune of meeting it's less reputable members.

Eventually, in an attempt to bolster the low population of the server, the illusory devs of Blizzard decided to attempt to replicate the results achieved on a parallel universe named "Darrowmere." They announced that they were enforcing a new set of laws onto the server, which would prevent people from being attacked by those of the opposite faction unless they were inclined.

A panic arose on the streets of the cities. The trade chat trolls which were once so boisterous were drowned out by the worried discussions of the population. They didn't want a PvE server! They liked having the ability to violently butcher the opposite faction on sight. Amid all the dismay of the incoming end, however, one could hear mentions of a promised land. A land where one would be free to gank as they pleased. That land was called... "Akama."

As the maintenance day dawned and the transition began, a mass exodus began towards the new server. Blizzard, in their limited wisdom, had offered what was known as a "Free Character Transfer" to this server. It is through this means that the people of Drak'thul began fleeing.

Akama, this land of worldwide slaughter, suddenly found itself awash with refugees from the burning wreckage of their old home. They had no idea what awaited them. For as the players of Drak'thul flocked towards their server, the trade chat trolls had followed in their wake.

The Akamans, not only were they suddenly faced with thousands of new players, but also with the horrible Trade Chat spam imported onto their server like a plague. Within hours of the Drak'thulians' arrival, "Anal [Ravage]" and "i thought i herd [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]" flew through the streets of Dalaran as it had on Drak'thul not so long ago.

The Akamans, for their part, started to mistrust the Drak'thulians. Their first impression of the refugees was that of their most vocal part, that of the troll. Akaman guilds began denying applications from transfers. Their craftspeople started adding a fee for those coming from another server.

It has been a few weeks since the arrival, and for the most part, things have calmed down now. The trade chat trolls are still there, for sure, but they seem more subdued. The prejudices may still be there for some, but not as openly as they once were. Akama, or Drak'ama as some have affectionately dubbed it due to the massive portion of the populace that transfered there, has returned to a relative state of peace.

Now, as the circle of Blizz begins again and Drak'thul becomes open to incoming transfers, I wonder what they will find. From many servers they will come, and as they walk through the deserted streets of Dalaran, it is possible that they will hear echoes of a departed civilisation. And those echoes will probably be as obnoxious as the trolls that most likely created them.

Scattered Shots: What spec should I use? {WoW}

May 20th 2010 3:28PM To the contrary, he HAS mentioned it. Just not on Wow.com. There's a post about it on his warcrafthuntersunion.com site (Which is linked at the top of the page.)

Cataclysm: Initial User Interface strings {WoW}

May 6th 2010 2:40AM Agreed, MMOChamp is winning, I believe someone also posted a link somewhere in there to the cata client O_O

Just want to bring this up, if you look at the maps for Kezan, Lost Isles and Azshara you see references to someone named Gallywix. He seems to be someone relatively important... Perhaps the leader of the Bilgewater Cartel?

WRUP: All mounts are equal edition {WoW}

Apr 23rd 2010 7:07PM What is this? No one has mentioned the Time-Lost Proto-Drake yet? One of the most visually appealing (note: opinion) and rare mounts in the entire game. Then again, my opinion might be slightly invalidated due to insanity (I spent 5 months farming it,) but still! Best Proto-Drake of them all! (Blue = Runner Up)
