May 27th 2009 6:07PM Except that the "victims" are victims of their own actions-- if not for the actions of the Elves and Humans, Draenor wouldn't have been destroyed by the burning legion, the enslaved orcs wouldn't have been marched over to Azeroth, etc.
Oh, not to mention the really ancient victimization of the Draeni, since a titan of Azeroth came and turned nearly their entire race into demons.
It's not like the Orcs up and said "Gee, let's summon in demons to drink their blood and go invade some random planet."
Remove the Elves' abuse of magic and there's no attention drawn to Azeroth; remove the Humans' stupidity that allowed a demon lord to be incarnated as a keeper of magic, and there's no orc invasion.
So, basically, you're for the people of Azeroth getting off without any consequences and shipping the folks victimized by their actions off to a destroyed world.
May 27th 2009 3:33PM Now from the Draeni/Orc POV:
Ship them all back to the world destroyed because of the people of Azeroth, with focus on the guilty actions of elves and humans, so that the humans and elves can continue to be idiots without feeling guilty by seeing the refugees created by their actions. "Gee, sucks about your world, now get away from our world let us get back to what we were doing, inviting in demons and such."
For a bonus, the Burning Legion will have even fewer enemies to fight on Azeroth, especially once the Darkspear Trolls, Forsaken and the Tauren are wiped out! Probably wipe out the Blood Elves for being tainted, too-- although the state they're in is a direct result of the faithless actions of the Humans. (Some lovely allies, there-- abandoning your long-term allies to destruction by the undead led by one of your human royalty, then forsake them more because they look for a different source of power.)
May 2nd 2009 2:56PM Making it so their hard work is at least *partly* enjoyable by a wider range is just good sense.
It's as if the only cars on the road had been BMW SUVs, and now there's economy cars, pickups and other types allowed as well-- sure, the traffic will be thicker, and there won't be as much epeen available just for having a car, but the type of car will still matter to the few who care, and there's better use of investment.
Apr 26th 2009 3:16PM If the Horde is to be held responsible for actions of their rogue elements, so should the Alliance.
So they've got an attempt on the Horde capitol with an entire fleet of ships--Jaina's father's fleet--all the trouble the Defias have made, have a share in the wonder that is the Cult of The Damned, and the Scarlet Crusade on top of it all.
If I were going to be really low, I'd also point out that their royalty became the Lich King.
The Horde's Chief Apothecary counts, but a human King doesn't?
Apr 13th 2009 8:15PM Dude, skip religion, would you?
"Sex, religion and politics" are the classic subjects that can't be discussed in polite company for a *reason.*
Nobody cares if it was on the Simpsons or not-- could avoid all kinds of trouble by just quoting the Hunchback's "Sanctuary! SANCTUARY!"
Mar 7th 2009 6:46PM Because humans are naturally greedy?
I've never seen anything like what the article is claiming as the norm.
Leveling my enchanting sure didn't cost me anything-- in the long run.
Buying cheap stuff to turn into greens, DEing, selling what I didn't need, keeping the small shards to become large, rinse and repeat.....
Well, let's just say both my husband and I haven't had any trouble buying epic mounts for our army of alts. ^.^
Mar 7th 2009 6:38PM It's a crafting profession, unlike mining or skinning.
(restating your point)
Imagine the reaction if a BS/JC tried to insist that he should get all a miner brings up, because he needs it to level his professions and there's no way for a blacksmith to farm for ore!
I do love how most of the other enchanters here are ignoring that small dream shards *do* DE from greens-- with enough frequency that my enchanter had enough to buy every dream shard enchant *and* level enchanting, at a profit, by buying materials for my LW husband to turn into greens.
Mar 7th 2009 6:31PM There's two very, very easy ways to farm shards:
if you're a tailor, buy cloth, make level 70-some greens, and DE.
If you're not a tailor, buy the mats for friends to make greens, and DE.
Using my husband's leatherworking and a little time, I leveled enchanting to max and earned over 2k gold by reselling the mats I *didn't* need.
I've never seen an enchanter that tried to insist that they should both get all unneeded drops and keep the shards; this is as silly as the raid guilds that wanted to force their groups to roll on drops from skinning, or mining, or any of the other tradeskill drama.
It boils down to people wanting something they haven't earned.
No enchanter, there's still gear to vendor; no skinner, no leather.
Disenchanting BOPs is a courtesy that an enchanter doesn't have to offer; that does not entitle them to free materials.
Dec 16th 2008 2:20PM The use of "too"-- as in "also" or "as well"-- is correct; too many forget to use the word correctly....
The you're/your correction is a peeve of mine, as well.
