Jun 7th 2011 8:33AM The various graveyards and Spirit Healers are already a monument to my time spent in Wow. I've graced them all!
May 24th 2011 9:03AM The person above that mentioned a 2% speed increase Glyph got me thinking...
What about removing class themed minor glyphs and just having them as general ones that any class can use. I don't know how feasible this is, I'm kind of thinking (typing) out loud with this.
They would need to avoid altering stats to avoid min/maxing, but there must be some cool or interesting cosmetic effects that would be popular.
- Character size changes (increase/decrease).
- Something that gives particle effects to your mounts (free sparklepony?)
- Different casting/melee animations.
- Something that makes you breath fire/frost/fel flame occasionally.
- Alternate dance/idle animations.
- Extra emotes.
Ok, so some of those might be a rubbish, but you can see what I mean. It certainly be more fun than "Mana cost of Seal of Truth is reduced by 50%".
May 13th 2011 8:18AM Talking of player collision, that was something I enjoyed in WAR PvP. Having tanks being able to block and hinder melee from reaching casters made for some interesting tactics.
Apr 15th 2011 11:41AM Well... I know for a fact that the introduction of Achievements have helped 'develop' my OCD.
Apr 14th 2011 7:46AM Me and my best mate had been playing Guild Wars as we were both keen to try out MMOs, but weren't keen on the idea of a monthly subscription. This would have been about a year or so before TBC?
We'd enjoying it a lot but were becoming a little bit jaded when the hype around TBC started. Just after its release, one of the gaming stores had a promo running on the Vanilla box so we thought, "Why not, the first month is free, if its rubbish we've not lost much."
First characters were Undead Warrior and Rogue, but the old Undead starter area didn't grab us so we rolled Alliance and didn't look back and are still playing in fact, though now both back on Horde.
Apr 13th 2011 5:10AM I think with a smaller monitor/resolution its hard to avoid spreading everything out to the corners - you simply don't have the space to play with. Too much placed ceentrally and you can barely see your character, let alone anything else going on.
I've been trying to find a workable UI myself, and I'm limited to a 17" monitor with a 1200x1024 resolution and I'm finding it tough to find the right balance of info and space.
I quite like how this guy has done it although I would drop a few bits and pieces too.
Apr 12th 2011 9:26AM Thanks God it's not just me.
I don't get much time to play, so I tend to level much behind the curve. I also don't often get to run dungeons as my nominal main was a Mage and I simply did not have the time to queue. (Even Guild runs can be a push).
She's been sat at 85 for a month now and has only ever done Tol'Vir normal once and almost all of Heroic SFK. And that's it.
I now am levelling a new Holy Paladin as I have really enjoyed healing before and might get speedier queues. I'm determined to somehow make the time to run all the Cata normals during levelling for the basic tactics of each instance, but I know I am going to be terrified when hitting the LFD for that first Heroic. Especially when everyone will be so much better geared than me by that point - The dreaded GOGOGOGO syndrome.
Apr 11th 2011 12:04PM Not just you!
I rolled a Pally on a new server and basically levelled it to 40 just through Archaeology and the odd dungeon. Believe it or not, such is my Altitis, this character was my first to actually get a title (...and I've been playing since just after TBC came) when I got the Fossilized Rapor Pet.
It was surprinsingly fun, visiting all the places that I normally blast past; like old-school-ish WoW.

Jan 19th 2011 8:22AM I cycle to work, so thats all the exercise I need. :)
Plus running around after my 18 month-old son must burn plenty of calories.
