Breakfast Topic: What's your naming methodology? {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 2:28PM Enchantro is my cheesiest -- it was going to be an enchanting mule and became my main for a while
Nesingwaryiv (Nesingwary the fourth)
Tatankamani ("walking buffalo bull" in Lakota for a tauren)
Ulrick (means wolf power)
Mommy (for my prot/fury warrior... protective and full of fury!)
Coldhottie (obviously a draenei mage)
Tippicker is my second cheesiest -- thats my lock picking mule
Paparoy (A priest named Roy)
Tronden -- well thats a wierd one. Its based on "Trondent Technologies", some local company I saw a sign for. Turns out it happens to be the name of a mountain in Norway. Somehow that is fitting for my paladin tank...

Breakfast Topic: Initiate epic character reboot procedure in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... {WoW}

Jun 27th 2011 11:41AM Here is what I would have done differently... and perhaps it is odd thinking about it now - but I see a LOT of people who don't use the auction house when starting up -- and I was also such a person when I started...

I didn't see the point at the time. I was so wrong. I vendored my still boe greens!

So yeah, I would give any new person this advice -- if the auction house lets you sell it, attempt to sell it. it may take a while, but it will sell -- and its worth the time put into it. Get Auctionator to make life easier, and Mailopener to prevent hours of click click click.

The main exceptions are spice bread, and mutton chop... you can't pay people to take those off your hands...

Jun 27th 2011 11:35AM OK, I have to ask... You know that you can have 50 characters across all realms, right? This also applies to any friends that you have...


So I would say that it is much easier to just put the 85's on hold, and start anew on another server. If you find yourself nostalgic, you can always login on one of your 85's and say "hai guys!"

If someone enjoys playing with you, you can invite them to start up a toon with you on this other server.

Blood Pact: How to be a true warlock {WoW}

Jun 21st 2011 10:52AM *takes away Jil's wand*

Jil, while I admire your enthusiasm -- paladins may not use magic wands. Just as I am not talented enough to swing a two-ton hammer, Paladins lack the sophistication and fine motor skills required to handle such a fine piece of magical equipment.

Based on this guy's name, he appears to be a fellow warlock. It also appears that his imp soiled his Cheerios this morning. Lockefeller, it is a much better idea to banish your imp and torture a mage into providing you a fresh breakfast than to attack your dark brothers. [http://www.wowhead.com/npc=35458 Wilfred Fizzlebang] died by taking on more than he can handle, and battling with warlocks is a lot more hazardous to your health -- as you should already know.

Long story short, for immersion in content and used as a teaching aid, RP can be quite entertaining and enjoyable. I prefer this style of writing to "I haz macro -- target PEW PEW PEW! Y I no can haz spirit gear? lolwut?! I liek much!"

The Queue: Kettlebells and personal hells {WoW}

Jun 8th 2011 3:17PM Question for the Queue:

In Wrath I did the whole chain-heroics, and filled a decent spot in a progression guild, etc... and now in Cataclysm, I can seem only to be bothered to get enough iLvl to enter a heroic if I wanted to... AND I have yet to even go into any heroics on any of my 4 level 85 toons...

I thought perhaps the new satchel reward would get me interested in tanking some heroics on my paladin (he was leveled prot and I am more than decent as a tank), but even the promise of goodies doesn't bring me to want to bother.

I do, however, keep leveling the alts. Now that I have a paladin, priest, warlock, and hunter -- I am almost done with my warrior; and have a rogue, druid, and a mage actively leveling. Oh, and making zillions of gold on Darkmoon cards is awesomely fun as well... Oh yeah, forgot about the shaman. Poor shaman gets no love :-(

So it doesn't seem that I am burned out on the game -- but I just can't figure out why I have no desire to do heroics or raids anymore. I did enjoy them in Wrath... Could it be that they changed mechanics so much that I fear not being able to perform? Is anyone else in a similar position?

The Classifieds: A new Horde pendant {WoW}

Jun 8th 2011 1:52PM So now that we have *2* horde pendants.... lets see you IRL JC's fashion us some awesome alliance ones!

Patch 4.2 PTR patch notes updated for May 31 {WoW}

Jun 1st 2011 12:59PM "If a player wins a Need roll under the Need Before Greed system on a Bind on Equip item, the item will become Soulbound to that player. The item will remain unbound if won via a Greed roll."

Exactly what was needed (was that a pun?)

Breakfast Topic: What brings people back to WoW? {WoW}

May 9th 2011 3:30PM What might bring her back... well, we have 4 kids - oldest is in 1st grade. I think she needs the room to stop spinning with tornadic fury before she can think about doing something that takes more than 10 minutes to do.

Breakfast Topic: What brings people back to WoW? {WoW}

May 9th 2011 3:28PM My wife gave up WoW and now spends her time going back to every level of "Angry Birds", determined to get 3 stars on every one... she did so with the original, and is now doing so with the "Rio" expansion.

The Queue: Tanks {WoW}

May 2nd 2011 11:10AM huh. and I always thought the fifth element was "love" since you had to use some of each element to activate the stones... and to activate her, she needed love...
