Korean guild KIN Raiders scores world-first heroic Madness of Deathwing {WoW}

Dec 20th 2011 10:53AM I did congratulate them and apologized (thought I mis-replied to my own thread). I'd been a while since I read that blizzard was changing the lockouts for those countries and they were very vague in the original post about how it was being applied. I had, incorrectly, assumed that it was for all the lock outs, including DS.

Dec 20th 2011 10:44AM Ah, then in my noobness, I apologize. I though that Blizzard had made ALL the lockouts for those servers like that.

Dec 20th 2011 10:39AM Grats to them but I'm sure the extra lockouts had nothing to do with it... double the amount of gear in less time? =/

It's still a hard fight and they are still awesome for doing it, but i'm a little irked by that.

Breakfast Topic: What was your most memorable noob moment? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 11:09AM Shortly after launch I decided I'd play a human (I'd done elf in beta and got lost a lot...) and decided I'd play a warlock since I didn't like hunters (I died a lot).

While running around in the woods around lvl 8 or so I came to a river. I figured it looked interesting and there might be some murlocs over there. I crossed into Duskwood and saw all these skull animals. Not knowing better I attacked them, and quickly died.

I can back to my body and then had a conversation in general chat like this:
[me] Is anyone here?
(no response)
[me] Are there people in this section?
[Warrior] Yep
[Mage] Yes
[me] Wow, you must be really powerful

I was amazed. I thought they had beaten the game. I don't know why but I just assumed they were amazing.

I still have that character. Granted she was changed to a gnome, then horde, then gnome, and finally a belf again. I don't play her much as she's a farming alt now... but man. I had so many noob moments on her.

The Lawbringer: WoW in fiction and the GameStop debacle {WoW}

Sep 9th 2011 1:35PM You know you can get that $5 back at any time right? Like months after the fact. I moved last year and left a $10 preorder at the gamestop 3 states away. I completely forgot until I got a check in the mail from them for the $10 I'd forgotten about.

WoW Moviewatch: Heroes {WoW}

Aug 11th 2011 1:13PM One of my favorite covers by Peter. He's amazing and he transformed a poppy song about triumph into something dark and heavy, gave it a true sense of that desperate moment before a battle that you must win to survive. I love the video.

WoW Moviewatch: Are WoW Cataclysm Graphics Good? {WoW}

Jun 6th 2011 12:18PM This reminds me of that time lapse of Dalaran from the PoV of the shopkeeps. Ugh, I can't find it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Drama Mamas: Much ado about funsuckers {WoW}

May 13th 2011 3:20PM Yay! the Mama's! I missed this article.

I had an experience tanking my first cata normal that made me so upset I walked away from the game for a few days. I was told that I was stupid, harassed for needing a tank upgrade, and bullied into giving it away.

I eventually went back and now I try to tank as many randoms as I can with just myself of my BF. I'm extra nice and kick anyone that is trying to troll. I think I'm trying so hard because I'm sad about what the community is turning into.

Breakfast Topic: The curious phenomenon of "reverse burnout" {WoW}

May 10th 2011 9:27AM I'm raiding for the first time since Vanilla and I'm loving it. We do end game content 4 nights a week and I find that on off nights I'm itching to do more. Since they clear everything I do old content, work on getting people geared, or usually level and alt for profession farming.

Lately, I've been working on Rep. I'll pretty much decided that I want to get as many reputations to exhalted as possible. In the midst of this I'll probably work on Loremaster.

When that doesn't satisfy me I sit on a rare spawn I'm camping and playing minecraft windowed.
