Jan 22nd 2012 11:45AM With no offense intended to the author, I always chuckle a bit when writers and analysts put up something like the Shard of Woe as best-in-slot. It's a bit like reading a magazine's "summer must-have shoes" from Prada and Armani; yes, they'll look great, but who can really afford to spend $2,000 on a pair of shoes?
Jan 16th 2012 5:49PM Do you think Blizzard will revise the drop chance for archaeology rares/epics now that we're in the last path of the expansion? It's incredibly frustrating to have invested so much time into archaeology and still not get access to the ultra-ultra-ultra-rare drops, such as Zin'rokh, Ammunae or Thaurissan.
I could understand them wanting to limit the propogation of these drops early in the expansion, when 359s were the pinnacle of gear, but doesn't it seem a little silly that these "epics," which haven't kept up with gear inflation, are still as rare as they were when Cataclysm was launched?
Jan 5th 2012 12:43PM "Take the molten front for instance, where you or your character ever really challenged during that event?"
All the time, by players from the opposing faction engaging in "mastery fun," e.g., waiting until I was low on health from attacking something and one-shotting me.

I seriously LOVE you for this.
Nov 28th 2011 11:34AM I didn't go to any of the stereotypical New York tourist sites until several years after I left Manhattan. When you live there, it's very "eh"... you just take it for granted.
Years later, of course, I geeked out on the ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty and went to the top of the Empire State Building.
Nov 18th 2011 1:00PM What about making it more like inscription? We have tons of characters around the world from the Explorer's League and the Reliquary who are ostensibly digging for old artifacts. Why not include more specific archaeology-based quest lines where you have to find artifacts and then decide whether or not to get these organizations involved?
I don't know that another rep is the right way to go, but it would certainly add more depth than the tedious travel time and random distribution of dig sites. Plus, I know I'd like to see more fleshed out from each of these opposing archaeological pseudo-factions.
Nov 16th 2011 1:56PM You guys think that's creepy, try reading "The Aqueduct":
Ahh, I miss American short stories. I really need to find a good compendium one of these days.
Nov 16th 2011 1:54PM Until the Reliquary of Souls: Essence of Desire. You need to make sure you have some damn good interrupters for that, and to have someone dispel her shield or even at 85, you're going to wipe. She just manages to chain stun-lock everyone, which is incredibly frustrating, and if you take too long, she destroys all your mana.
Nov 15th 2011 2:04PM I think it's to force casters to allocate gems, enchants and reforges to something other than crit, haste and intellect, or casters would simply be way too overpowered. Originally, Blizzard had also said that they wanted to implement a sliding scale caster hit cap because with gear inflation as the expac wears on, casters get more and more powerful without a way to distribute stats into other areas.
Nov 15th 2011 1:29PM If I'm looking to break into the WoW TCG, what would be a good box to buy? I'm looking through all of the xpacs available on the website and there are just so many. I'd like to find one that can ease me into the gameplay, has potential for some neat loot cards and has great art. Any thoughts?
