The Queue: These new white and silver Coke cans are freaking me out {WoW}

Dec 9th 2011 4:01PM Thanks! I found the information after running a Google on "WoW Mobile Authenticator restore." The result is here: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=27005

The problem is, I just discovered that when my account expired, I'd foolishly stuffed the app into a backup folder and uninstalled it from the main app directory. Reinstalling it... created a new serial, apparently. D'oh.

Maybe I can dig up the old serial somewhere but if not... I'll have to unlink/relink after all. But I can live with that, and I am now armed with new information to employ when that happens! Plus now it is extra impossible for thieves to get into my stuff, since even *I* can't get into my stuff.

Thanks again!

Dec 9th 2011 12:31PM Question!

I use the Mobile Authenticator app on my Droid 1 phone. I let my account expire but hope to reactivate someday when I have more time to play. I left the authenticator attached to the account to stop someone from stealing it while it's inactive... again.

The phone's contract is up for renewal in February and I can switch to a new model of phone (Specifically, I hear the Droid 4 is planned for release either this month or next, so I'm intending to go with that). But if I change phones... what happens with the Authenticator account? Can I just download the app on the new phone and use it as-is, or put the app on the SD card and put the SD card into the new phone, or will I need to detach the Authenticator account from my WoW account (exposing it to thieves again)?

Blizzard clarifies transmogrification rules {WoW}

Sep 20th 2011 9:18AM Let's say my main's a Mage and my alt's a Priest.

I get some cloth heirlooms and transmogrify them into my Mage tier sets.

If I mailed the now Mage-y heirlooms to my Priest, everyone would pester me for intellect buffs and mage snacks. (Also it indirectly violates the rule of "you can't transmogrify your gear into something your class can't wear," but dammit Jim I'm a healer, not a cake dispenser!)

Sep 20th 2011 9:05AM You can't transmogrify between melee weapon types because certain attacks and talents require specific weapon types.

You can't Backstab with a hammer (that would be less of a "Backstab" and more of an "AAHHH MY SPIIIIINE"), nor Titan's Grip two staves (your dreams of becoming Champion Chopstick shall never come true).

Cataclysm Beta: Build 12942 restoration shaman changes {WoW}

Sep 12th 2010 9:38AM I'm guessing when he says "DPS Tank," he means "The tank died and a Rogue is using Evasion to survive aggro" or something like that. (i.e. Moonkin Druid switching to bear or Hunter popping Deterrence, etc.)

Not sure how much it matters, since non-tank HP is rising dramatically in Cataclysm so it's not so miserably far behind the tank classes. The DPS shouldn't be getting one-shot unless they were really, really asking for it.

Sep 12th 2010 9:33AM Wasn't Healing Surge a term used in Dungeons and Dragons, actually? They're like a kind of "Heal fuel" consumed each time a character receives healing effects, in order to limit the number of heals they receive each day. This prevents players from overcoming boss fights through zerg-spam-healing. (Yes, I am a nerd, and I hang around other nerds. And they play D&D.)

Perhaps it's an appropriate name, considering "Lesser Healing Wave" is extremely limited by mana, and it'd be a bad idea to spam it.

The OverAchiever: The 25 most entertaining achievements finale {WoW}

Aug 19th 2010 6:28PM Yes, but that's the reason it's kind of dumb. After all the big huge friggin' deal that this shiny whoopass sword is, you can't actually WIELD the sword.

You put all this effort into this historically vital weapon and then you're awarded... some random other weapon that nobody ever heard of.
