Mar 31st 2012 8:48PM It's also easier to mistake silence for silent disapproval when you aren't good at speaking up for yourself. We all tend to assume everyone is like us, so if your typical way of expressing disapproval for something is silence instead of saying that it bothers you, you might see that in others when it isn't there.
Nov 28th 2011 7:11PM Is it possible that the husband's raiding guild doesn't allow him to raid with other guilds? I don't know why he wouldn't just straight up tell her that he'd be breaking a guild rule, but that could explain him freaking out and pulling his alts. Also, she didn't say anything about scheduling-was she planning on working around his main's raid schedule?
I also started playing as half of a couple when we had to take it long distance for a while, and even though WoW accounted for a huge part of our time spent together for a year or so, we definitely didn't play together every moment. We played together sometimes, and other times we chatted via RealID while doing completely different things. I wonder if he thinks she's clinging and her asking him to raid with her is his last straw because he's been afraid to tell her this whole time that he wants some hobbies that she's not involved in/time away from her. (which, as Robin said, is totally necessary in a relationship!)
Apr 17th 2011 5:02PM My biggest problem with healing normal Shadowfang Keep is all the twists and turns pretty much guarantee you will always be out of line of sight of the tank. I did it on a priest while trying to do the new class quest and every time I stopped to loot something I was freaking out. You have to be on top of the tank to heal in that instance.
Mar 11th 2011 2:47PM You probably know this, but enchanters don't get skillups for disenchanting items past skill level 60. The only way your greens would be worth buying for a leveling enchanter is if the value of the mats when DE'd was greater than the price of the green (and there's an element of luck in that). If that's the case, you might be better off to contract with an enchanter and give them a small fee to do the disenchanting for you. I generally do this for free for guildies, especially if they are leveling crafting professions and have tons of greens that won't sell.
Dec 17th 2010 11:08AM Worgen were originally Druids of the Pack, hence the "wildness coursing in their blood." Goblins can also tank as Death Knights, and they are not alone in not having access to either Druids or Paladins. Gnomes, Forsaken, and Orcs are in the same boat.
Dec 16th 2010 2:24PM Replace all instances of "healer" with "tank".
Now we know why our DPS queues are over an hour.
How do I donate to the STFU Foundation?
Dec 14th 2010 5:58PM Isn't this why Blizzard is making things more obvious for new gamers in Cataclysm? Poor Suvie didn't learn her teleport spells til after level 30 because I didn't know they even existed. (you used to have to go to each city and learn its teleport/portal spell from the portal trainer, don't know if it's still like this) I had no idea what raid markers were til I saw a tank mark his target in a Gnomeregan run and I asked why the mob had a skull on it. I didn't know at the time how lucky I was that he was nice about it and explained what raid markers were and what they were for.
Sometimes us Wrath babies just need a little guidance.
Dec 10th 2010 5:25PM I thought the letter writer meant that they were rolling against people in the guild and got turned down because other people wanted the gear, not that s/he wasn't allowed to roll on loot that was going to be sharded. If guildies were rolling on loot, and the OP knew s/he wouldn't get any gear unless no one wanted it, then why roll at all? Why not wait until the RL opens rolls and if anyone else rolls, then don't bother?
I wish we knew the whole story, there's a good chance "pompous and self-serving" and "don't know how to present yourself to strangers" is about more than loot rolls.
Dec 9th 2010 11:48PM I agree with whoever said to let her read these replies. My boyfriend and I got into WoW when circumstances forced us to take our relationship long-distance. I was resistant because I thought I would have to learn a bunch of new things, I wasn't ever much of a gamer, and because of the negative stigma that WoW has. But I was willing to try it because he was so excited about us having something to do together. He ran his human character all the way to Dun Morogh so my brand-new gnome could do quests with him. If she sees that you just want her to get into WoW because quality time with her is important (which I think you made clear in your comments) then she might be more receptive. Good luck!
Dec 9th 2010 11:44AM Omedon, I definitely agree with you, but what if there's a good reason to switch guilds? I'm concerned that people will stay in crappy situations because of the perks they would lose if they left. I think there's a happy medium between incentivizing staying in your guild and forcing you to choose between perks and harmony with your guild. Hitting the max rep for the week within a couple hours of questing is probably not it.
