Apr 12th 2010 10:28AM Downgrade me for stating that it is hard to take this guy seriously, really?
I'm not stating that it is wrong to not level to 80, if thats your thing playing alts, low level pvp, just questing, thats cool. My point is why would wow.com have a guest author who hasn't even experienced endgame write an article like this. He states it became too much like a job but if he hasn't got to endgame he has no idea how job-like it can become. Spending hours just farming mats for raids, grinding through dungeon after dungeon to compile badges to by that next upgrade, pounding your head against the wall while trying to progress against that next raid boss.
If this guy wants to write an article about everything you can do pre-80 then awesome. The title of the article is "Time for a Change", if your asking that and haven't even seen the vast content available post 80 then yes, I find him hard to take seriously.
Apr 12th 2010 8:17AM I agree, kind of hard to take this writer seriously.
Apr 9th 2010 8:46AM This is more of a suggestion for a healing class than a particular spell. I’d like to see a melee/combat healer hero class like a monk or perhaps even the rumored arch-druid class. I have a couple ideas on how the mechanics would work.
A link to a particular player (tank) that all damage you do transfers to healing to that target.
A life tap ability that transfers to healing another target (like the green drakes in Occulus)
Some type of AOE heal, similar to AnubArak’s leeching swarm that damages enemies but heals the party.
Just a few suggestions. I think the arch druid would probably work better within the lore.
Mar 18th 2010 10:49AM Every complaint listed here is valid. It is not the same show it was with Schramm and Turpster. I've given up waiting for it to come around. I am not able to listen live but really looked forward to listening to the recording on Monday or Tuesday. Again, its Thursday with nothing posted but an excuse, which is more than normal, I'll give them that. it doesn't seem they really make it a priority to get the rebroadcast up.
The silver lining is, if you miss Schramm and Turpster you can find them at their new podcast:
It is not totally a WoW podcast but there is a heavy dose of it included. All the fun and great guests you remember from the old WoW Insider show. If I see the wow.com podcast is actually posted, I will probably still listen, but this has taken their spot in my listening schedule.
Mar 10th 2010 4:39PM World of Warcraft for Wii, Thats what I want. Can you imageine spinning around your living room casting Fan of Kives and Whirlwinds, it would be awesome!!
Mar 8th 2010 4:10PM I'm kind of torn on this one.
I would personally at some point like to see a WoW 2 instead of it ending. I think this we good to tap into a new pool of suscribers. Right now a new player would have to pick up Wow, BC, Wrath and next Catclysm to get to end game. I think if the carry on for another expansion or two it is too large of an investment to get started playing. Not to mention you have to grind through 80 levels, which isn't too bad but the problems is that no one even bothers to learn their class roles such as tanking and healing until at least level 70 which hurts us all when they hit 80 and run randoms with us.
I think if they were to reboot and give some type of loyalty incentives to current players (let us reerve our toons on the new game and maybe start with better gear, special pets, etc than a new person it would help the longevity of the franchise.
If we just get expansion after expansion, the overall population will continue to dwindle and you will see some realm dry up from lack of competent players. I guess that is the cycle of all games but would just hat to see that happen, the way the warcraft universe is set-up the lore can just keep changing and evolving as long as there are people willing to pay for it.
