Nov 11th 2010 1:07PM Very cool. I've been looking for a new AH addon and this looks like it will suit my needs exactly. Thanks!
Nov 8th 2010 1:11PM If they would just change the racial bonus to apply to *all* ranged weapons, this would easily solve the problem. I'm not sure if the community-at-large would consider that to be fair, however. I'll leave that to be discussed here.
Oct 30th 2010 2:49AM I don't really get this line of thinking. If you think goblins are so cool, then play one come Cataclysm. It's not like you are restricted from playing one simply because you prefer to play Alliance.
I mean... I do... I get the faction thing. You've got your pride, you've got your "home." But also, what you've got here is just your opinion.
My opinion, however, differs greatly from yours and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way: I personally think *both* goblins and worgen are cool for very different, very iconic reasons and therefore will most definitely be playing both.
Faction, schmaction. I'm gonna be having all the fun I can have in Cataclysm. And from what I've seen, there's gonna be fun a-plenty. Seriously, your bags and your bank are gonna be so full of fun, you're gonna have to roll another bank alt just for all the fun you're having. Do you like fun? Do you? Have some! Seriously.
Oct 26th 2010 9:56PM You've got my attention.
I talked with you briefly about healing in BGs at the WoW Insider party. How, even though it is often a thankless job that often goes unnoticed, the ability to (sometimes single-handedly) turn the tide in your faction's favor is reason enough to keep queuing. I hope this column inspires more people to try it out.
I've been healing in BGs for a little over a year now (mainly on my disc priest), and I've always had a lot of fun with it. Those first few days of Patch 4.0.1 certainly ramped things up quite a bit: if I wasn't staying mobile, if we weren't grouping-up on flag runs, we were all screwed. I've noticed a lot more people willing to work cohesively as a group and discussing strat in chat because, yes, it's been totally nutso. But adopting this kind of playstyle can only mean big, big things for rated BGs. I really look forward to it.
And after reading this column... resto shaman PvP? I'm *so* on it.
Oct 12th 2010 4:33PM Lots of cool prizes! The "Know Your Lore" column seems especially awesome.
Sep 22nd 2010 5:02PM I am so excited! Great venue, although I'm really glad there will be more space this year. Last year was so much fun even though we arrived later than we wanted. This year we'll be sure to get there on time.
Thanks for all your hard work on this!
Aug 3rd 2010 8:39PM So if we can mount up in instances and such, this seems like a great (and lazy) way to bypass pet pathing issues: mount up, pet disappears, and jump!
Jul 27th 2010 5:41PM The Gilneans (and worgen) are poised to be one of the more fascinating races to roleplay, if approached from a more traditional, Victorian standpoint.
In Victorian England there are some pervasive issues that I think would really work well for Gilneas. These being that of the working class versus the wealthy and that of the inflexible, moralistic principles of the times. A need to conform to the strict standards of conduct in society (directed by Queen Victoria, herself) at all times was paramount. It was believed this "strength of one's character" directly related to the strength of England as a whole. To fulfill this, once would need to suppress their more base desires, adopting a guise of propriety: a mask, a pretense. Something to disguise what is hidden. Sound familiar?
A more affluent Victorian would have seen the lower classes as being base, primal, and perhaps even depraved. Animalistic, if you will. It would be conceivable for an upper-class Gilnean to distance themselves from such things, for fear of being "infected." (ding! ding! ding!) So the lower classes being so oppressed, adopted a kind of "anything to get by" attitude as a means for survival, thereby perpetuating the idea that they were morally unclean and tainted. A lower-class Gilnean, then, would probably be more apt to accept their worgen selves while a Gilnean of high society would probably loathe and detest it. Secretly, however, the idea that an upper class Gilnean now had a clear outlet for all the unfulfilled desires that had thus remained hidden might be somewhat thrilling.
I've rambled far too long and I don't even RP! But maybe I will come Cata?
Jul 27th 2010 4:20PM If this is merely mediocre, then I guess I need more mediocrity in my life, plz!!!
Seriously. This is really clever! It may not be ground-breaking or anything in terms of technology or style but it's not supposed to be. Sure the dance-steps are a little off and there are some corny bits, but that's part of The Guild's charm. If it were absolute perfection, it would lose most of its appeal for me.
Props to The Guild. Well-done fun.
