The Queue: Pandaria is open on the beta {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 6:32AM Another way to get around the funsuckers that I've used is to zoom your camera all the way in to first person view, then just walk up to the NPC. Everyone blocking him just disappears from your screen as if they're not even there. You can interact with them as normal then.

Breakfast Topic: What's the next big change? {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 8:45AM I loved the continual story through multiple 5-mans that came with the ICC 5-mans. When they became available, the guild I was in put together three or four parties and tried them all from start to finish, playing through the quests and story line. It was great fun, although Halls of Reflection was a road block for some us that we couldn't get through until later. It'd be great to see more of that, I thought it worked out brilliantly. With the exception of the buggy drop rate on the Battered Hilt perhaps, we saw way too many of those, lol

Gold Capped: Staying ahead of inflation {WoW}

Aug 16th 2011 3:31AM Lol! This reminds me of when I first started playing many moons ago. I was invited to a guild by a friend who had convinced me to give the game a try. He told me I should get myself a guild tabard. I remember seeing the price of 10s for the tabard, when I had just a few copper to my name, and thinking I would never, EVER, be able to get one :)

Breakfast Topic: How about that one gear slot you can't seem to upgrade? {WoW}

Jul 27th 2011 8:56AM I am totally with you there. I've got blue shoulders equipped, and as the boss kills pile up, I'm still wearing these darn blue shoulders. Get the feeling they'll have to see me through to Ragnaros and beyond as well... Grrr @ RNG

About the Bloggers: Alex Ziebart {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 2:24PM Nice memories there Alex, I always enjoy hearing people talk about their grandparents, like I could somehow have those kinds of experiences through the stories of others. Guess it's cos I never knew my own. My parents immigrated half way around the round the world about a year before I was born and my grandparents on both sides passed away by the time I was 3 or 4, never got to meet them.

Patch 4.2 class balance explained {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 7:10AM Totally. I love it when someone like Ghostcrawler comes out and sets things clear with a simple "We did this because of that". These posts are where I personally get the most satisfaction from the Blues posting and giving us a take on what they're thinking. It doesn't mean I or we have to like what they are saying, but I'd rather settle on agreeing to disagree, than wondering "Errr... what?".

Breakfast Topic: How do you prefer to access "hard modes"? {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2011 9:25AM Ulduar was a great raid, but I couldn't call it the greatest raid in World of Warcraft. Kara still tugs at my heart strings in a special way no other raid has been able to do. I learnt everything I know about raiding from Kara, and I got my first ever piece of tier gear from Curator. The fond memories of Kara probably means I'm not being objective, but Kara's environment, bosses, variety to the fights. Greatest raid ever :)

Gold Capped: Cataclysm glyph addons {WoW}

May 24th 2011 7:11AM I've seen this behaviour as well. I have often been able to sell stacks of enchanting mats at 5% - 10% more per item than the guy who listed 100 stacks of a single dust or essence. And I do the same, if I can avoid "Your mailbox is full" by paying a little more for larger stacks, I do.

Patch 4.1: Blizzard unveils dungeon finder Call to Arms {WoW}

Apr 7th 2011 7:26AM Blizzard haven't failed. Blizzard are trying to fix a problem created largely (mostly?) by the player base. I have 3 tanks. Druid, Pally, DK. I do not tank in LFD simply because of the random players you get grouped with. I'm done with their attitude problems, I'm done with DPS who refuse to CC, done with DPS that misdirect to the healer and then pull, trying to blackmail me into pulling faster, done with being yelled at, done with all the negative experiences of playing with a random collection of players through LFD. Yeah I know not all players are like that, and I have had some groups I would love to try convince to server change to my server and join my guild, but 9 times out of ten, the players ruin the experience for me. These rewards won't bribe me to change my mind. While I'm sure this work on some of the tank base (those with the thickest skin most probably), I'm sure I'm not alone in saying "Thanks and due credit for trying Blizz, but you're trying to fix a problem that was never your fault to begin with"

The Light and How to Swing It: Basic retribution paladin macros {WoW}

Mar 16th 2011 9:14AM I still have my trusty old "Judge target and reapply seal of righteousness" macro gathering dust somewhere. Back in the days when seals lasted 2 minutes, and judging removed the seal that macro was my trusty 2 key. How I don't miss it. In the slightest.
