Blue posts and other WoW news: Skyrim silence {WoW}

Nov 15th 2011 6:15AM So i was running around the wilderness looking for caves. I had a deep need of orichalcum ore and was told this eastern part of the wilderness had some caves containing my precious metal. I noticed a rather large bear who apparently did not like my face in his wilderness. After hitting him a few times with my axe a sudden noise scared me off my chair.
"BWAAAAAAAHHHHHHH", and my screen was on fire. After getting up i noticed the burnt corpse of my former enemy the bear, my health at dangerous low levels, and shrieking dragon in the skies clearly not pleased with my face in his wilderness.

And awesomeness insued.

Breakfast Topic: Choose your own adventure {WoW}

Nov 10th 2011 8:31AM Im picturing it now.
LF1M ICC, must be exalted with frenzyheart!

I'm having a hard time seeing how "heavy choices" could be implemented. Players who play together are bound to have made different choices, and story collisions would look very odd. The lich king example, the oracles suddenly show up and help one of their own, and one of their sworn enemy at the same time.

Choices like this would almost always be derived down to "what gives ME the best rewards". Which kind of isn't a very good way to push a story into the mix.
If i could vote between garrosh, putricide and hogger for warchief. I would pick the guy who gives me the best rewards, if there are no rewards then players will most likely fly by it.
A hard thing to implement indeed

Breakfast Topic: Do you read the WoW novels? {WoW}

Oct 25th 2011 8:36AM Oh let's see.

The war of the ancients gotta be one of my favorites. Knaak is not the best writer our there, but the story of my favorite characters outweigh a few "not eyes, but orbs" quotes.
Miss Golden is probably the best writer of the warcraft universe.

And i absolutely love the stories of the orcs. From the simple shamans and hunters who roamed the fields of nagrand. The sudden trickery by the burning legion to destroy everything that was natural to the orcs. The orcish Horde, so bloodthirsy that nothing could quench their rage. Then the slow road back to shamanism and honor that was once the noble orcs. I sure understand why Varian is being such a prick against the orcs.

Breakfast Topic: What are your plans for BlizzCon this year? {WoW}

Oct 20th 2011 8:44AM Live in Norway, so the trip there would be more expensive then a 2 week, 5 star vacation in Thailand.
Thinking about picking up a live coverage ticket and brake out some caffeine and watch all night with my roommates. Then again, its weekend, and there are always other options in the weekend. Specifically involving student society and alcohol.
We will see who things turn out.

Hogging the f5 button is always an option i guess.

The Queue: Books From Boxes {WoW}

Oct 17th 2011 7:43AM Today's adds include:
tire changing service. Seeing as i don't have a car that's very helpful.

Some add for some footprints in sand and a box saying "buy now". Not sure whats being sold but not whatevs.

Add for contact lenses and glasses. Exact same service i use to buy my contacts have a add for contacts on a site i regularly visit. Coincidence or Knight Templar conspiracy?

Today in WoW: Monday, Oct. 10, 2011 {WoW}

Oct 11th 2011 3:23AM Agree on the forsaken part there. If you want a forsaken paladin a Death Knight is the closest you get.

Since gnomes now can be priests, and they are already furious warriors. I am eagerly awaiting the next step.
Gnome paladins. I can see how the knights of the silver hand were kind of a racist bunch of crusaders back in Lordaeron. But today in Azeroth i think we are all ready for the next step in light worship.

Breakfast Topic: How do you feel about using guns in WoW? {WoW}

Oct 10th 2011 8:33AM It would be awesome to transmorg wands into guns. Then my mage would pick up that gun that look like it was made in dalaran or something, and blast people in the face Tecno-mage style.

Also, with the added etherals and the technology goblins and gnomes apparently have access to. I dont see fancy guns that alien to azeroth, Since tanks and gyrocopters and giant gunships are now a common sight.

Breakfast Topic: Transmogrification means revenge {WoW}

Oct 9th 2011 8:47AM I was tanking on my DK back in wrath. I remember using bracers from ulduar all through Lich king patch. I had noted where the good tanking bracers dropped, and me and my guild have cleared icc weekly for months or something. Sure i was replacing slots constantly for better and better items. When I found myself with very decent gear fom 25-man and heroic 10-man, i looked at my bracers and wondered... ilevel 213?
We cleared out ICC when we were 85 for kicks long before transmogrification came about.
I looked in my bags after all the loot had randomly been greeded and stuff. And found tanking bracers, good ones. I muttered in anger:

"Really? REALLY?!?! Entire expansion with rubbish and now it drops when i have no need for it EVER? SERIOUSLY? "
guildmate asked with a smirk on his face: "u mad bro". I replied in a manner not suited for this comment that i was in fact very mad

Breakfast Topic: How about those voices in your head? {WoW}

Oct 8th 2011 2:38PM Remember that sunflower pet you get after doing those plants vs zombies quest? That lil' thing sings now and then, which reminds me of a amusing dungeon a little back in time.
weird dps #1: Hey... do oyu guys hear a LITTLE GIRL SINGING?
weird dps#2: nop.
weird dps #1: seriously, i think im going crazy. I keep hearing a little girls voice sing in my room!!!
weird healer #1: wait what...?
awesome tank #1 (me) : it's just my pet bro.
weird dps#1: oh thank god!
weird dps #2: lol

Breakfast Topic: Designing your own spell {WoW}

Jun 26th 2011 10:42AM I have been thinking on some abilities that are fairly powerful, but do not have a fixed cooldown. Instead the abilities are "use once in combat" abilities that once used, become unavailable until the player leaves combat.
These would be signature spells that are direct damage or healing, no "gives 20% strength for 15second" crap.

For dk's, summon ghoul or even army of the dead seems to fit, mages would have ring of frost or a very strong or larger version of dragons breath. Shamans would have a "power of the elements" type of spells, combining the 4 respective elements into a super laser or something

Possibilities for these "once in combat" thing is something i think, with a proper balance team behind, could be a very good success.
