Jan 8th 2012 4:53PM The Gender of a character in Wow - Regardless of whether you RP, Raid, PvP, or anything else - Doesn't have to reflect on ones self personally and that's somewhat of a narrowsighted way to think of it. I don't have, nor do I try, to reflect myself in Wow, its not my goal to be some Big Damn Hero and pretend to save the world time and time again, I make my characters for a variety of reasons: From Story and Rp reasons, to preferred animations, to 'Dear God, Male Draenei look like their chest has been replace with one giant tumor'.
Jan 8th 2012 4:36PM You should stop by Wyrmrest, there are lots of Roleplayers and its always nice to have a larger community in which to game. Look me up ^^
Nov 22nd 2011 2:06PM Quick Question for any who know
I was replaying Warcraft III recently and I noticed, when I reached the Night Elf Chapter, Malfurion was referred to as 'Furion'. Tyrande and all the other Night Elves called him 'Furion'. His nameplate said 'Furion'. Any and every time time he was called by name or referenced, his name was listed as 'Furion'. When exactly was the 'Mal' ended, and does it have significance?
Nov 8th 2011 4:03PM Am I the only one who finds it odd that the '#1' reason to like BC was that everything had to do with with a large, overarching story that connected the quests, zones, instances, dungeons, and dalies... And yet it seems that's exactly what they're trying -not- to add in Mists of Pandaria?
Oct 26th 2011 4:04PM @ Bluemain, the point isn't who had the Lore figures. By that logic, you could count Prince Arthas as one of the great heroes of the Alliance, or Kael'Thalas, or any of the Heroes who broke away to neutral parties (Antondias, Khadgar, Tirion... Theres quite a list). The point being thrown around is that for almost the entirety of this Expansion, the focus of time and resource has gone to developing Horde storylines, faction leaders, and zones far more than they have to any Alliance counterpart. Where the Horde get land, long thought out stories with well done, voice acted cutscenes, the Alliance gets... Well, to watch. The many points have been stated over and over through all the comments on this topic, so I needn't beat the dead horse, everyone gets the picture.
Heck, perhaps it could be even stated that figures like Bolvar and Turalyon and Lothar go -against- any sort of Alliance Favortism. There's no denying that Bolvar was a very thought-out character who was given a lot of screen and a lot of quests and a truly epic feel for the Wrath of the Lich King, and in the end he heroic stepped up to take the mantle as Jailer of the Damned with the defeat of the leader of the Scourge... But what that means is that we've taken a well written, well thought-out, well made character of the Alliance, and removing him entirely from it. Was it awesome? Yes it was. And now hes gone. Just like Turalyon fighting back the Old Horde. Its the true salt of a hero, but the end result is that Turalyon disappeared into the Nether and hasn't been seen since. The Alliance Heros that make me proud to wear the Blue and Gold die, disappear, or fall by the wayside for years on end (Jania, I miss you ._.), while the Heroes of the Horde get quests, get voices, and get increasingly developed.
And @Hobs... I hope you're joking
Sep 14th 2011 2:36PM I wish I could find a response to the question at hand, as most of the responses tend to be 'You should accept everybody' or 'You should try to help along those who don't understand'.
In my guild, there is a Mage. Shes a really nice girl, as a person, and I never really mind her if she wants to tag along to guild runs. That said, when I'm trying to coax anyone from the Guild into a more personal run, I can't bring her along. She doesn't understand mechanics, she can't hold up any CC, and her DPS is half of what would be acceptable for any PuG (I checked her output once in BRD... Th entire Dungeon, she only used Scorch ._. ) Shes got a high enough iLevel to enter the Zuls, but shes only got that far by running consistent Heroics with guildies who are willing to compensate for her lack of skill.
She wouldn't survive in a Zul. The friend I tend to run with, love her to death, but she tends to get upset when we can't progress over a single boss. This Guildie has been told how to improve since shortly after Cataclysm launch, but she never picks up on it, and shes never going to be removed from the guild because... shes the Guild Leaders Mother (You were expecting Girlfriend, weren't you?)
Jul 28th 2011 9:21PM Question:
When I open the Auction House, all my gold is displayed in a little panel off in the bottom left of the interface. If I click on this Gold Counter, a little window opens up asking me the 'Amount to Pick Up' and how much Gold, Silver, or Copper to input. If I do, it makes a little icon parceled with what I have to assume is the money, but I cant seem to actually DO anything with it. What is this feature? What outdated purpose does it serve?
Jul 4th 2011 2:04PM Multiple times, but only one is really worth telling about.
A friend of mine asked me a few years ago to join her on her Rp server. I sort of stuck my nose up to the prospect of Wow Rp and wanted her to join me instead on my hardcore progression server, but we were both stubborn like mules, so we put in on a coin toss. Well, I lost, and I made a Human Deathknight on her server with a Night Elf Rogue to bank alt. I wound up legitimately enjoying the Rp server and quickly made a number of fast friends, even going past the girl who recruited me and finding solace in a small group of avid Rpers who I became very attached to. I considered them all very good friends, I knew most of their names and hobbies and passions, and thought they were more than just 'players in a game' to me.
Then, that Winter break, I went on a holiday cruise with my family for about a week. When I came back to Wow, most of those friends were gone.
It wasn't that they just 'Didn't Log In', their names had been erased from my Friends List with a little yellow notice. Just vanished. Only me and one other guy were left. I tried asking him what had happened, but he merely replied that he didn't know. They had server transferred without telling anyone where they were going, and all we had were a few guesses as to where they might be.
I knew these people. Two were a husband and wife pair, with a baby girl. She was turning one later that month, and I had a present to congratulate them. It was crushing. I stopped logging in for about a week before the one remaining guy convinced me into staying, introducing me to a new group of people. But I didn't trust so easily after that.
In the end, one of the group that left came back to the server, and she apologized for what she did. Were a lot closer than we were before (I now have her phone number and other contact information), so I hope she wont do it again. The other three came back in varying stages, but they all left again, and I believe they all quit at one point or another.
