Mar 1st 2012 7:54AM I still don't understand why gnomes can't be hunters. They can already use firearms (warrior, rogue), and it's not like the gnomes couldn't invent some crazy animal control device to cover the whole taming animals thing. Or, come up with some alternate class-related explanation like they did for gnome priests (I absolutely adore the fact that my gnome priest is a "medic"). Gnome artillery specialist?
Feb 20th 2012 8:31AM First time there my boyfriend and I were duo-ing it at about level 60. It was late on a Friday night, we were tired and lost, and we could not do that damned jump. It was the last straw and we were bitching each other out over it. I think we gave up and went to bed at that point. I cheered when they shortened the dungeon, and I haven't seen anyone fail that jump since.
Frankly, there should not be platforming challenges in a non-platforming game. The controls in WoW are just not there to support it. Blackfathom Deeps is a prime example. Even the addition of the wind-assisted jumps in the Molten Front can't save platforming in the game, as I've seen several people (myself included) aim incorrectly on them and end up in lava...
Feb 16th 2012 8:39AM I adore Myra Tyrngaarde. She's an adorable Dwarven baker who buys all of our vendor crap without question. I'm pretty sure she's selling all of it for a pretty penny on the AH, and the baking thing is just a cover. She and Stormcaller Mylra are my favorite NPCs in the game.

Feb 14th 2012 10:04AM First of all, I'm going to have "Caramelldansen" stuck in my head all day now...
Second, if you're going to go with Rammstein for DKs (and I do, despite the fact that it's the only metal I listen to), I feel like "Asche zu Asche" would be a better fit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu5pC4sLiHA).
My mage's theme song would probably be "Electric Feel" by MGMT (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmZexg8sxyk)
Finally, for my hunter, there's none other than Frostheim's "I'm A Hunter". Says it all! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0l4T9kRlBE)
Feb 8th 2012 11:03AM Now I'm going to have "Pretty Maids All In A Row" by The Eagles in my head all day...

The amount of patching after the optimization varies from person to person, and seems to be related to the optimizer replacing corrupted files. Most people only have to download a few MBs (which I assume is just the patch), while some on the forums are reporting having to download as much as 16gb. There's no way to know until after the optimizer is done, unfortunately, but it is something people should be aware of.

Aspect of the Hawk now grants roughly 35% more attack power."
Am I the only one that's really amused by the use of "roughly"? I would love to see the true value. I bet there's a repeating decimal...

Jan 24th 2012 8:49AM I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but I miss Gubber Blump. I hated old Darkshore with a passion, but I ran almost all of my characters over there to get the Blump Family Fishing Pole. He's currently MIA, and some GMs have said he isn't dead, so I'm continuing to hope he hasn't become Darkshore Grouper food...
