Finding the line between you and your roleplaying character {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 2:42PM Wow that video is old. It's likely the first WoW Machinima ever made. Never gets old, either. Anyone know what happened to the guy who made it?

Breakfast Topic: How would you redesign the old character models? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 9:47AM LOL wait till all the people who play who don't even know these kinds of websites exist see them.

I've known people who, when Cata hit, logged in after 4.0 and started asking in Guild Chat: "WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? WHY'S EVERYTHING BLOWN UP?!"

Know Your Lore: The hour of the king {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 9:14AM King Wrynn is not a bad man.

He is a man all of my characters would be swelled with pride to follow into battle, and gladly serve, if he can just get himself, his heart and his thoughts, under control, and direct all the trouble and heartache he has been put through, into a focused beam of leadership.

I really think what's going to happen with Jaina will be where Wrynn becomes King Wrynn. I hope so. He deserves that inner peace and tranquility. Even though he's a king, his life has been utter shit. The only good thing he's got left is Anduin, and I really like that kid. Alot.

Wrynn's a flawed character, but I really think Blizzard can turn him around and make the Alliance players as proud as the people who've chosen Horde.

Wherefore art thou, Steamy Romance Novel? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 9:04AM I have multiple copies of "Big Brass Bombs" a Goblin book.

And then there's the one in the DK starting area involving an undead, a banshee and a hot night in the cold crypt. And the pages on the book are sticky (no seriously, go see for yourself).

Mar 29th 2012 9:01AM Yes, I've seen a good many people call the human female "fat". That they have a "large fat butt" and "big saggy boobs". To me, Human Females look like pin-up girls.

Mar 29th 2012 8:59AM Actually, he's right. I "don't like" Draenei, but I'll be one of the first to complement that model. It's very well done, and well-animated given it's age now, both sexes.

Worgen though? The WoW community ruined the female Worgen, and it badly, badly, BADLY needs a fix. There's no really no way you can look at the current female Worgen, and feel anything but pity.

Mar 29th 2012 8:56AM You do know that at one point in WotLK, they "fixed" the Dwarf female's chest so that it didn't bounce anymore, right?

Dwarf players got very upset and the chest bounce was reinstated due to request. I've often said that watching a female dwarf run is like watching Baywatch in slow motion, but again, there's nothing really wrong with that.

Dwarf girls can't help if they're one of the prettiest female races in WoW.

Mar 29th 2012 8:53AM Fat in all the right places. :)

Mar 29th 2012 8:52AM I'd play an Undead if they fixed that. I'm sure it's a consequence of the model (at the time) and it wasn't intentional, they just didn't know how to fix it until China forced them to.

Mail and Plate do indeed need to lose the "painted-on" look alot of it has. It's very noticable on larger player models, like the Tauren, or player models with oddly-shaped limbs (like the worgen or draenei).

Mar 29th 2012 8:50AM They're the original player models from Alpha.

They are used, actually, in Caverns of Time: Hillsbrad Foothills and a few of them are used in the DK Starting Zone. They have next to zero animations, and the clothes are part of the model. Very, very low poly and low texture. Go visit Hillsbrad in CoT and zoom in on one.

All the classes are represented. Warlock, Priest, Paladin, etc. I don't think you would have been able to change anything other than a couple head choices, though.
