Aug 15th 2011 1:44PM Dps is a lie. You can be alive for one minute of a seven minute fight and top the meters. Any damage dealer worth their salt looks at damage, not dps.
Aug 12th 2011 3:56PM I thought the boot them from the guild comment was unnecessary and indicative of the attitude that is dragging a lot of once fun guilds down these days.
Aug 9th 2011 1:46PM Also, what's even more fun than flying in a cessna is jumping out of one :)
Aug 9th 2011 1:43PM Have fun learning to fly :)
My dad flew Cessna's when we were growing up. One thing you'll find is you don't have a sense of moving fast up there. Clear prop!
Jul 14th 2011 2:23PM The "Acti" in ActiBlizzard pretty much insures that services like this will always be premium. It's the same reason Blizzard's famous "it's done when it's done" is now an expansion every 2 years like clockwork. Bobby K. might keep a distance, but there is no doubt in my mind who is pushing all the not-so-micro transactions.
Jul 8th 2011 2:31AM Totally off topic, but anyone else finding WoW completely down? My computer is sayign even Battle.net is down. Don't remember anything about rolling restarts and it's not when they usually run them anyway.

I don't think the game/developers think climbing a tree and kicking a turtle are the same as climbing into a vehicle.
The problem I'm guessing the developers ran into is that, while fights like the Blood Queen in Wrath show you can have secondary controls pop up without using the vehicle UI, the need for aiming arrows in these quests is most likely the problem.
It would be my guess that the vehicle UI is the only way to access that functionality without having to re-write a ton of code and that a pet being re-summoned was by far the lesser evil (even the demon pets).
I hope the pet/vehicle thing is something Blizzard looks into in the future though as it is more than a moderate annoyance with the amount of vehicle use in-game these days.

It isn't a bug per say. Both quests use vehicle operations and entering vehicles de-spawns demon pets. Can't remember if it does for all pets, but hunters call pet is instant so wouldn't be a big deal.
I think Blizzard should re-think how the pets/vehicle thing works though as, leveling a Goblin Warlock, one must re-summon their pet every 5 second until you get out of the starting zone.
I almost went without my demon you get in so many freaking vehicles and I got so sick of re-summoning.

If you'd left out the jab at Scott, your first post would have been fine. When you decided to include that sentence, you were making a conscious decision to start some shit. The problem is that while the internet is a forum where people can be confrontational in complete anonymity behind a screen and keyboard, more often than not, anonymous assholes can't take what they dish. The worst part is you're not even a good troll. Real trolls don't cry.
Jul 1st 2011 12:08PM Now that Blizzard have finally implemented full punting functionality in a quest, how long do you think it will be before we can finally punt Gnomes for real? Imagine what a blizzcon announcement that would make! Might even make people forget about that damn moose.
