Apr 4th 2012 6:43PM They said in the beta FAQ that both when you made your account and when you signed up for AP was a factor. However, several people had reported they got in on the first tiny wave, before the 100k waves started. Of course, what people say and actual facts tend to be different.
Apr 4th 2012 4:25PM Question for Anne or anyone else- Any word of raid questing in the beta? It was brought up at Blizzcon but nothing since. It was one of my hopes for my guild, so we wouldn't have to split up into cliques to level. One big happy group would be awesome for us leveling guilds :)
Apr 4th 2012 3:59PM It's safe to say there will be no filler raid, because they came out and said there would be no filler raid :) There was a blue post right around the Mists press extravaganza.
As far as a prediction on when Mists will ship. Easy. Mists beta started about 3 months earlier than cata did. Cata shipped on 12/7. So 3 months earlier than that would give you approximately 9/7/2012. Which puts it in the 9/4 to 9/11 window. Before you say they won't release it on 9/11, keep in mind they released Cata on 12/7, which is a day with similar significance to it.
Apr 4th 2012 2:59PM It depends on the negative comment. If it is just baseless whining done by someone who can't process information, then yeah, it will get downranked. If there are substantiated ideas then chances are someone might agree with you and vote you up.
Apr 4th 2012 12:30PM I am losing my mind. I swore I read a blue post about this yesterday. It had both the length of the time you would be in the level 90 realm and the price of it- which was $20. Do they delete blue posts? I check the blue tracker on MMO champ and couldn't find it.
Apr 4th 2012 10:25AM Egbert is my favorite pet (that I own)! I only use him on my mage. He is fairly uncommon too, even though he is readily available every year :p Creepy you say? Hmm. Egbert thinks you are creepy! What do you think about that? :XD
Apr 4th 2012 10:21AM I did something similar with my bank mage I am leveling. I have a bunch of pets and couldn't pick one. I am an altoholic but I like to have each toon use a different mount and pet. So for her, one day I summoned the silver tabby. It was meh at first. The cat pets are so tiny. But then so is she (a Gnomette). Now the thought of the little thing snuggled up on the ground when I fish is so cute, that pet has warmed it's way into her heart :p Ok my heart. Yeah.
Apr 4th 2012 10:17AM Without a doubt, Grunty is my favorite pet. #1 he is a murloc. #2 he has animation. #3 he goes all Al Pacino with a big ass gun. #4 I will never be able to get this damn pet! :(
Apr 4th 2012 10:14AM I got this pet on my pet collecting toon. I tried for it again on my DK. I thought it would be a neat contrasts: this big old crusty Draenei Deathknight with a pretty singing sunflower in tow ;) Of course he got stonewalled at the second to last fight. Recently, I made a new DK to play with some guildies who are on another server. One of the first things I did was go get that pet. More because it gave out some decent XP per each phase. I rediscovered the tricks to getting the pet! So I went back and got it on a couple toons. I will probably try for it on all my toons I level, while the tactics are fresh in my memory :)
Apr 3rd 2012 6:02PM I would strongly debate that the two texts contribute to an "inequal or lesser experience". If you are forced to play one gender based on your own, I would say you had a very mild case. Since everyone is equally able to play male or female, much like horde or alliance, that is just not the case. We can agree to disagree here, nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's a pretty cool thing to do. Makes for excellent discussion :)
