Around Azeroth: Scenes from the Warcraft illustrated Bible {WoW}

Jan 30th 2012 1:31PM This isn't going to go anywhere because - as one of those Christians who is not comfortable playing a warlock (at least as Blizzard has portrayed them as demonologists) - most of us recognize a difference between someone else doing something irreverent or disrespectful, which is their right, and what we ourselves are comfortable doing.

Which matters more, graphics or gameplay? {WoW}

Let me hit you with a different scenario for why I play Wow like Nina said.

I have a wife and two kids. The kids play a Wii that they got for a Christmas present. I have a Compaq laptop that I bought for school two years ago for $300 NEW. And I play Wow on it.

I get that some people do what you analogized, but many of us make due with what we have/can afford. I can't even play EQII or Allods on my laptop but Wow runs like a champ, so it's what I play. If the graphics get too much of an update, I won't play that anymore either.

You realize, of course, that "Sylvanus" (spelled correctly with a "u" instead of WoW's variant with an "a") is a boy's name and has been at use in the western world for over 2,000 years, right?

Likely the first female ever named Sylvanas is the banshee queen. Just saying.

Breakfast Topic: How would you revamp Outland? {WoW}

Nov 6th 2011 1:55AM This.

Sorta...

It would be awesome to go back and find Allerian Point as the dominant Alliance hub and the Mag'Thar place in Nagrand (I don't Horde...) as the dominant hub for the Horde. Shattrath has been razed; the Naaru are missing. Without the Kurenai threat, the ogres of Nagrand join the Horde. The ethereals of Netherstorm have finally defeated the blood elves there but traced their treachery back to Silvermoon and so joined the Alliance.

In a bold move, Blizzard removes the original 58-70 content, working that back into Azeroth and Northrend. Certain "scenarios" become available through Chromie, but Outland is now completely rife with portals, creating 1-20 zones for each of the new races and 90-100 zones in Outland. Then, the next expansion goes to Argus, and we win. The end.

But yes, Turalyon definitely kills the fel orcs. :)

The Queue: Happy Halloween -- have an utterly terrifying video {WoW}

Oct 31st 2011 11:19AM To my knowledge, all demons come from the Twisting Nether originally (depending on what exactly the void is). BC demons are no different. The Nether is not like the Emerald Dream in that it only exists for Azeroth; the Nether is its own separate dimension.

In fact, there is nothing in lore to suggest that Argus and Draenor are out in "space" because the Exodar is not a spaceship - its a magical transdimensional transport. Is there anything in lore at all that suggests interstellar travel? I don't think there is...

All the World's a Stage: Roleplaying plot points Q&A {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2011 10:32PM The elves who came to the Eastern Kingdoms but didn't join the Bllod Elves are the High Elves. They are still very much separate from the Night Elves.

The Queue: Bedroom Eyes {WoW}

Oct 1st 2011 11:48PM Assuming wahoo means what I think it means, who doesn't?

Also, this band looks and sounds somewhat like a guest star on an 80s crime drama. I kept waiting for a cutscene to Walker or Matlock in the soundstage waiting for a chance to ask some questions about the money stolen by their recently and suspiciously deceased band manager played by Robert Loggia.

Breakfast Topic: What was your first raid experience? {WoW}

Sep 24th 2011 9:17AM Same here. I never hit max level with my old hunter until near the end of BC. I was waiting on a 10-man BT pug to form, and after an hour and a half of waiting on the prima dona tank, it sorta fell apart.

I actually stepped foot inside the Vault of Archevon once, but after the first fight, the main tank bailed, and the offtank was not up to par.

So that's all my raiding experience... I switched to tanking in Cata by he way. :)

The Queue: The life of Deathwing {WoW}

Sep 20th 2011 4:44PM Gonna have to call you out there on your hunters list:

Blizzard has made it crystal clear that to be a hunter in WoW, there are two non-negotiables - ranged attacks and pets. Marksmen have been asking for petless hunters for years, and there are still those who wish we could melee. On both counts, Blizzard has been consistent to shut them down.

As such, the Rangers (a la the Windrunners and Sylvanas) are not known to keep pets for combat purposes, especially not in-game. Rexxar is melee, so forget that. Nesingwary doesn't have any animals around him not filled with sawdust.

So hit me with that list again? The most famous hunter in WoW is the unnamed dwarf with his bear that opens up the vanilla cinematic.

Blizzard clarifies transmogrification rules {WoW}

Sep 19th 2011 10:18PM 1. This. What is it?

2. Why not? Blademasters? Demon-hunters? Not exactly the same as fighting with a fishing pole...
