Mylune cosplayer Lyz Brickley hugs a bunny right now! {WoW}

Nov 26th 2011 4:12PM I was more excited about Tyrael's secret, but Mylune's costume was definitely one of my favourites. Am I a perv now?

Drama Mamas: Loot drama redux {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 1:07PM @Zaph

I was in a guild in WotLK were we used a roll on what you like system. I was an officer there and I suggested to use a system to hand out items to those who needed it most. However, I lost out on rolls a few times to new members that only joined recently, or didn't raid very often, so I made another suggestion and suggested to keep certain loot only available to members that have raided x amount of times, or have been with us for x amount of time.

What we wanted to achieve here was that everybody had the chance to get better gear, but we also wanted to protect our regular raiders from people that join guilds, get an item and bugger off again. We therefore decided to limit loot rolls. Regular raiders could roll on anything and new raiders could roll on anything, apart from tier tokens and certain high level gear. It was not to stop people from getting certain items, but merely to protect those that worked hard for the guild from getting duped.

We were very open and, if I remember correctly, donating money/items to the gbank, doing x amount of raids and of course respecting the rules allowed one to move up a rank and then started rolling on all items. As always, the person that needs the item most got priority, as we all wanted to make sure we progressed together.

So, tl;dr, make rules stating they can only roll for certain items, or maybe drops from certain bosses. Not to not get them better gear, but to protect the established raiders that work for the guild. After X amount of raids, move them up and explain what has changed now they have moved up. It worked well for us whilst we were raiding. We stopped short of clearing Ulduar, as we lost interest, but we made steady progress whilst we were at it.

Drama Mamas: When "just friends" intrudes on love {WoW}

Nov 14th 2011 4:26PM He talks about her parents and school. How old do you think they are? Aside from that, my and my gf have been together for 6 years. A lot of people simply marry, to "prove" that they are committed, only to divorce when things don't work out.

For any man/guy/boy out there, another man travelling 12 hours to see somebody of the opposite sex? That is an instant warning. If it was a meeting of friends/guildies, sure, whatever, but this was just between said girl and man. I have yet to see a platonic relationship where somebody is willing to travel this much, where they talk this much and spend this much time together.

I've had a similar issue with my gf and I simply made it very clear how I felt about it. She was always texting him and they were going out with her colleagues (they worked together on the same department) and when I offered to come along, she said that it was alright and not to worry. As I didn't trust her, I decided, of which I am not proud, to read some of her texts to find out what was going on. I then confronted her, using evidence without making it obvious that I read some of her text and we sorted it out. Turned out that there was something missing between us and she sought this missing with her colleague. We worked on this and everything's fine again.

As others mentioned, it might be that she is missing something. Maybe you don't give her enough attention. Like it, or note, women adore attention, hence she is constantly talking to him, whatever the circumstances.

Maybe go out together, go to a restaurant and do not take your phones with you. Just you and her and chat. If you feel you're distant, try to catch up, etc.

The Queue: I win either way {WoW}

May 2nd 2011 2:41PM @Still Wingless I feel sorry to remind you that tomatoes are fruit too. So this lovely tomato sauce you're having on your Pizza is, in fact, fruit.

It's always fun pointing out when people make a statement of: "fruit doesn't belong on a pizza" that tomatoes are fruit too.

The Queue: Huzzah! {WoW}

Jan 29th 2011 11:33AM "The 30 days ticks away in real time, so he should clear his mailbox before he cancels his subscription. Bear in mind that you cannot suspend game time -- even if you cancel your active subscription, your account will remain active until your remaining game time expires."

I do believe that, if your character receives a mail, but wasn't logged in at the time and hasn't logged in yet, the timer stays to 30 days.
I checked on old characters I hadn't logged in for months and they still had a 30 days expiry date on the Cata CE Edition pet that was send via email. Same story goes for other Blizzard related mail, like GM tickets, etc.

I can also remember I send some heirlooms to an alt and after like 25 days, I realised I forgot about them and quickly logged into said alt, only to find the 30 days still waiting.

Jan 14th 2011 2:08PM Crap... that explains a LOT! I was told she was off the road in the Barrens towards the South. Nowhere was I informed her dead body wanders around, going as far as Stonetalon and Mulgore!

Jan 5th 2011 2:18PM You could find a necklace that you could repair from mobs all over northrend, this also gave you 1 token. Though the droprate was rare, it was available from the beginning before titanium powder.

Blizzard working on ways to improve dungeon finder {WoW}

Jan 5th 2011 2:09PM I'd like to see the kicking system changed as well. I have been in a group once with an arse of a leader that seemed to know little about what was going on around him and he was a tank as well.
I was standing back as a mage and in front of me was a warlock and we were both dpsing the pack of mobs in HoS. A pack of mobs is walking round in one of the circular rooms. I saw them and moved back out of los. The warlock continued blasting the faces of the mobs and got aggro of the pack. The tank/leader went into a tirade and whinged I pulled the pack, despite me explaining I was out of LoS and that it was the warlock. Then he started moaning about dps numbers on packs and I explained him that numbers on mobs that die in a few seconds give greatly flawed numbers on any dps meter and that drawing conclusions from 6 seconds of battle is just stupid. He kept moaning throughout the entire dungeon and I explained to him once more that this is a heroic. We're not wiping. Mobs are dying. Bosses are dying and asked what his problem was. "Low dps" he said. I repeated this once more, though he must have been illiterate, as he just kept moaning. Just before the final boss, he quickly did a vote kick on me, as my 2.5k dps on a newly dinged 80 wasn't enough, despite me explaining to him I just dinged several times.

I reported his behaviour to a GM and I'd like to believe he got apprehended for his in some way. In the end though, his behaviour was ridiculous and the fact that he could so easily start a votekick and that everybody else voted yes as well draws the conclusion that the votekick system doesn't work very well, yet. Note, I'll be the first to criticize myself and hold up my hand when I make mistakes, but this was not such a case.

Even now I get angry players in groups when everything is going fine. "Healing is not good enough!" /start votekick. Everybody just seems to click yes and doesn't think. So many times I clicked no where I see somebody get slashed due to the ignorance of other players and then get kicked as well, because nobody seems to know there's a "no" button.

Breakfast Topic: What's behind your character's name? {WoW}

Jan 5th 2011 1:55PM I usually pick my names based on my race. I have a blood elf named Valimar. The name sounds Elvish. It is also the name of the final boss in Grandia II, I believe, or one of the other Grandia games.

I have an undead mage named Avalon. I found it fitting, considering Avalon is the name of the island mentioned in Arthurian legends, where King Arthur recovered from his wounds after the battle of Camlann. I thought it fitted well with my undead mage.

I also have a goblin shaman named Tinkerbolt. I wanted a goblin involving the word Tinker and I was looking through the Shaman spellbook/talent trees to see if I could get some inspiration. I took bolt from lightningbolt. Not only that, it now also looks like a wordplay on Tinkerbell and Goblins having words such as; widget, sprocket and bolt in their names. Of course, she's an engineer.
