Mar 11th 2011 8:56AM "...I've long stated that Blizzard should allow players to buy the same way they sell; by posting their offers and logging off..."
This just seems like the current bidding function to me. I'll bid X, and have to wait Y time to see if my bid was the winning one. Seems like it would be subject to the exact same behaviour as the current bidding model i.e. if I am the seller and after 24 hours or whatever the offers are not what I had in mind, I'll cancel the auction and relist, until the offer matches what I wanted in the first place i.e. my buyout price.
I may have misunderstood what you had in mind, but that's how I read it.
Feb 24th 2011 5:58AM I do the same thing on my male worgen warrior. Whenever I'm in a capital city or a larger questhub I go into my "trying to fit in here/hide what I really am" mode.
I also do the same thing around certain NPCs. Little Pamela is the perfect example. While doing the quest chain and even since having completed it, I always make sure I'm out of her eyesight before transforming to worgen. It just made sense to me when I came across her that the last thing this little kid needs after all she's been through is to be confronted by a werewolf.
Feb 22nd 2011 8:35AM Hit Reply, so hopefully this shows up as a reply rather than a new thread (had problems with this previously). What I mean on the flight point question is: I cannot fly into or out of Southern Barrens because of the "You don't know any flight points connected to this" message, yet I must know at least 7 or 8 flight points in the zones that surround Southern Barrens. It's bizarre.
On the overcloaks, I mean the Overcloaks. Lol. There were previews of Overcloaks you could put on top of your current cloak to alter its appearance without changing its stats, basically just a customisation of the appearance. You could alter your existing cloaks appearance with your faction or race emblem. Not like the Gnome or Troll cloaks from the world event, which were completely seperate cloaks you had to equip. Think of the Overcloaks as a tabard for your cloak, basically.
Feb 22nd 2011 5:33AM Two questions for the queue. 1) Why are there some flight points that when I click on the flight master it says "You don't know any flight masters connected to this one.". Then I need to trek to the neighboring zone and fly home to train up/auction, etc. 2) I've probably missed an announcement somehwre, but what happened to the faction/race overcloaks that were previewed in Beta? Are they locked away in the dance studio?
Dec 6th 2010 8:12AM Zombie invasion stands out more in my mind. A lot of people I spoke to to hated the zombie invasion because they felt it interfered too much with their regular gameplay, but to me I feel that should be the whole point of a world event, i.e. you can't ignore it. The downside of the elemental invasion for me was the fact that you could ignore it completely if you wanted to. "The world is ending? Elementals attacking? Really? Hmm... yeah I think I'll just go back to my farming, LFD, auctioneering tbh". A world event you can ignore just seems like a non-event in my mind. At least with the zombie invasion, you could escape it by making an effort to do so, but you couldn't ignore it.
Nov 22nd 2010 1:00PM Second that! Watching that reminded my about how i felt levelling my first toon through to 80, taking in all Northrend, the sites, the details, the little things, the music. This living world world blew me away on my first toon. By the time you're on your 3rd or 4th 80, you're just trying to power through it ASAP, and you forget to appreciate everything that Blizzard put into Northrend. This took me back. Great video! Thanks for reminding me of how freaking fantastic Northrend was, it's hugely appreciated!
Nov 16th 2010 8:58AM Questing as a blood elf In the Ghostlands, finding that necklace off of one of the random banshees, and then travelling to Undercity to return it to Lady Sylvanas. Her reaction, that music, and the Royal Quarter filling with the Highborne.
Gets me every time.
Oct 12th 2010 9:47AM And remember folks, /dontpanic
Oct 8th 2010 8:43AM When TBC launched my friends finally talked me into giving the game a try. I remember being mesmarised by the Night Elf starting area on my first ever toon, and the feeling of excitement I got when i had to venture into the spider cave for a spider egg, and the fear when I bumped into the spider "boss". The fight for my newbie toon's life was genuinely nerve wracking. The game was epic from the start, and I've been hooked ever since. My druid has seen and done some amazing things over the last few years of Burning Crusade and Wrath. About 2 months ago I created my first ever Horde character, to see the Horde experience before the world is torn apart. And once again, from the moment I took control of my new Blood Elf pally, the game felt epic. It's what I love about WoW, it feels epic start to finish, and even my Champion of the Frozen Wastes, Kingslayer, Halion-slaying Night Else druid didn't numb me to the Blood Elf starter zone. Bring on Cataclysm! Only trouble I have now is what do I do first? Level the druid to 85? The pally? Give the Worgen or Goblins a try? I know whichever I try it'll be EPIC! MOAR PHAT WOW!
