Jan 25th 2008 9:29AM I think it's a no-brainer. There will definitely be surprises and lots of fun, new interesting gear, locations, mechanics and gameplay. That's what we got with BC and that's what we'll get with WotLK. Blizzard isn't small and they aren't stupid. They have a large, sophisticated user base and I'm sure they will put all kinds of "juicy bits" in for everyone.
Nov 8th 2007 12:09PM I agree with commenter #3 above. I recently switched to ATT DSL after around 10 years on cable. I was very skeptical having nothing but problems, big problems with att at work (Director of IT).
Couldn't be happier. Whereas cable always had unexplined outages and very low bandwidth delivery at peak times, the DSL line has been stable ever since I started it up over 6 months ago, and my bandwidth has been steady.
I've never interacted with their customer service and I'm sure it probably stinks, but it couldn't be any worse than my cable company's. I'll trade the same lousy customer service for a much better product any day.
Oh, did I mention my DSL package is 1/2 the cost of what I was paying for cable and twice the bandwidth???
Jul 12th 2007 3:42PM Amanna here - I'm honored at the recognition.
For all you WoW Insider visitors to my site, I welcome you and would tell you that my blog is Druid-focused. If you would like me to expand the gem section to be more generically useful, leave me some comments and I would be happy to do so.
Thanks Mike for the post!
Jun 26th 2007 12:43PM Well - I just read the forum post and the moderator guy doesn't say the site IS down for character profile implementation, he says is COULD be down for that. He signs his post with "/shrug" so obviously he's just guessing like the rest of us.
Love the site WOW Insider, but your wording on this post was a little misleading I think.
Jun 26th 2007 12:11PM Well, I just checked the forum post and the moderator DOESN'T say it was down "to implement". He said "maybe" it was down to implement character profiles because that was something they wanted to get done by the end of the month. He ends his post with "/shrug" so clearly he was just guessing.
Apr 6th 2007 8:22AM From a gear perspective, I prefer Shadowmoon Valley. I'm a feral druid, and while there is good gear for me in both zones, I've found the majority of the gear I'm looking for is in SV vs. Netherstorm.
Apr 3rd 2007 12:12PM Ummm, maybe I'm missing something but if Bob had just not installed BC then wouldn't he have exactly what he's asking for?
Or is Bob saying he wants his extra levels and new gear so he can own the instances that were so tough before? Again - do-able now.
Dec 1st 2006 1:00PM That it so sad. Are there really people who don't know what to do if their WOW server is down?
Nov 14th 2006 4:39PM Gee, why not just limit the height mounts can fly in Azeroth?
Oct 27th 2006 3:34PM I think it's possible to consider WoW as a game with appeal to both groups - soloers and groupers. I think it depends on what your goals are. If it is to continually be levelling up, then groups face the same limitations as soloers. If it's to have fun playing a great game, then why isn't re-rolling a valid options for soloers?
I tend to game both ways - I am in a guild and sometime attend raids, but the majority of my time is spent soloing. I have very much enjoyed building up multiple characters due to different abilities and the play styles they demand.
From what I can see, the end-game content for groups primarily is geared toward obtaining better equipment so you can face the next harder dungeon, and so on. Granted you get to see some different scenery in those new dungeons and face some new bosses, but you're still a lvl 60 playing the same game - just with better gear.
So if it's ever-better gear you're after and the need to experience "everything" the world has to offer, then yea you need to join a guild and go on some raids. If you just want to have some serious fun and enjoy the game, I think WoW is a great solo game with good replay value through different classes and factions.
