Widespread wave of phishing emails reported {WoW}

Apr 1st 2009 5:48AM I agree, very possibly these addresses come from a community site. I got one of these emails to an address I use for everything wow-related, except my account :)

I've used this address to only register with the 'well-known'-sites.

WoW Rookie: Money-making 101 {WoW}

Aug 30th 2007 5:53AM Funny - I wrote a simular guide for my guild forum not even one month ago. I wrote it because of 2 level 40s that didn't have the money for their mount. I won't repost my whole story here but the chapters where:
- Loot everything (yes - grey's too)
- Download and install Auctioneer addon (duh)
- Install AutoProfit addon (even some lvl 70s didn't know this great addon)
- Make a bank alt (less work than it sounds)
- Professions (get gathering profs)
- Don't buy gear (get gear from drops/quest rewards)

Starting from scratch with the same class {WoW}

Apr 11th 2007 3:41PM I rolled a Blood Elf warlock while my main is a human lock (lvl 63). Same server (Eonar-EU) but as she was horde, she had no friends and no money and as such started afresh.

I thoroughly recommend levelling a Blood Elf. The first 20 levels are all in the BE starting zones and they are great! The quests are good, the scenery beautiful and the quest rewards really good. At level 19 I took a break to WSG a bit and found that I was pretty well geared just from questing.

After level 20 the Barrens set in. I'm kinda stuck there now :)

Phat Loot Phriday: Tabard of Laos Flipor {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2007 10:30AM I thought this was a good joke but normally wouldn't mention it. I do so now because to many ppl obviously can't take an April Fool's joke (AFJ) two days to early. To those ppl I say: anyone can spot an AFJ on 1st of April but be clear and open of mind and enjoy being made fun of other days as well. It will improve your quality of living :)

How to Pick Up Women, WoW Style {WoW}

Mar 12th 2007 9:13AM Thanks for linking to classic thread! A thread that is now mirrored on our guild forums :D

Breakfast Topic: Why stay in general chat? {WoW}

Jan 29th 2007 9:22AM John (post 7.) makes a good point at the end and that is that most sites (Thott, Allakhazam, Goblin Workshop, et al) don't have the goods when it comes to Outland. The General chat there feels (or is?) like the chat in a starter zone all over again. Which is either amusing and entertaining or irritating and frustrating depending on your viewpoint.

AddOn Spotlight: Demon Trainer (Continued) {WoW}

Jan 4th 2007 8:42AM When I dismis a demon I also get an error message that such-n-such addon has done something wrong. As I understand it this is a bug on Blizz' side and the name-n-shamed addon is not at fault and actually more or less randomly picked. Why would eg Auctioneer preform an illegal action when I dismiss my demon? I have not seen the pet action bar disappear.

AddOn Spotlight: Demon Trainer (Continued) {WoW}

Jan 4th 2007 5:19AM This is a great addon with one big gotcha: Last time I used it, it did not correctly reflect the skills already learned. Possibly because it had been disabled during a few trainer visits. So look out when first using it.

Besides this comment it is indeed should-be-default. Buying new tricks for demons without any feedback which are already learned is ridiculous! Why use a different interface than that for a regular trainer?

Forum Post of the Day: Westfall {WoW}

Dec 19th 2006 5:50AM Leveling my first second char I also ran into this problem. I did all the quests and Elwynn Forest is just not enough. You run into Westfall underpowered. I actually grinded a bit for XP (horror!). I might be because if you know what you are doing you can get to that point in a few hours and thus you are not rested. If you take your time (ie a few days) the rested state will boost you a level or 2.

Breakfast Topic: So You Want To Be a Guildleader? {WoW}

Nov 29th 2006 8:10AM As a 'fresh' Guildmaster I can say that I am really enjoying it. It is like being president, change manager and older brother rolled into one.

With two others I run a casual leveling guild on a pve sever. Up till recently over 12 members could recruit and promote in a 100 member guild and this got messy because there was no commitment, no cohesion and not enough vision.

We have now drafted a charter for the members to uphold which contains the rules and explains the rank structure. When first published those that were most upset were those that abused the powers they had and now no longer have. Those that questioned our motives by talking to us all stayed because we could explain why. Other just gquit. Membership is down by a third because of this and the removing of non-played chars and we are hoping some other will quit too.

As there we roughly no rules at all, we built them from the ground on up. I'm glad to say that they conform pretty much to what is said above. Though "If you aren’t having fun, fix it" might get added in the next revision because it covers so much:)

Overal there is a sense that something is getting done and I really liked constructing a set of rules that are both clear and fair (I hope). It has all taken away a lot of playing time but hopefully the guild is now set on course and I can enjoy playing with a more cohesive and structured guild.
