Breakfast Topic: WoW Mad Libs {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 2:59PM Hehe, but really... I can't be the only person who remembers this Showbiz Pizza spinoff / Chuck-E-Cheese wannabe!

Breakfast Topic: WoW Mad Libs {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 12:29PM Once upon a time, the malodorous king of Stormwind, Varian Wrynn, was sailing on his ship, the Pride of Billy Bob's Wonderland, when suddenly an orcish warship came out of the fog! "Battle stations!" the king ordered. "We will not let them take the pulchritudinous trash compactors!" Two troll hunters fired arrows at Varian, narrowly missing his man boob. "By Bridenbrad's ghost! That was close," Varian squealed.

Garrosh Hellscream, warchief of the Horde, ran out onto the deck of his ship, the Eitrigg's inner child screaming and weeping until insanity. "Varian, you cowardly sheep dog! Come face me, and feel the might of my Mag'har saliva!" Garrosh lunged forward and, with the grace of a pink flamingo, landed on Varian's ship. The two fought until the crow's nest was hot pink with toe nails.

Suddenly, Chen Stormstout appeared in a puff of Elderberry Wine. "Stop this at once! Your battle has cut off shipments of the ingredients to my prized new ale, Voluptuous Temperate Autumn Stout! If this continues, we will never have enough for Brewfest!" Varian and Garrosh looked at each other's epicurean faces and agreed that this fighting was pointless. "Garrosh, what do you say we let bygones be bygones and have infinity times infinity drinks together at Brewfest?" "A true warchief partners with cheetos!"

The end.

Mar 14th 2012 2:59PM I also think this is a new NPC model, but really... Would it be that hard to use a variant of this model for a new Tauren Model?

Also, if this is just a new NPC model ala the Taunka, please please please let there be a unique female model too. I always hated how the Taunka females had the exact same model as female tauren while the male got a unique model.

Breakfast Topic: 'Every female WoW player has healed at least once' {WoW}

Mar 12th 2012 9:15AM I've got two mains, a healer and a tank. The tank is my favorite character to play. They're also both male toons, and for the most part no one ever even mentions that this is strange. In fact one of the only people I know who tends to poke fun at me for it is another female player. :)

For the most part I just want to be challenged and I like responsibility, so I like key roles better than dps, not to mention they're in far greater demand, especially in my guild. I've got at least one of every class though. I pay for this game and I want to try everything!

Around Azeroth: When I walk in the spot, this is what I see {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 12:14PM Female Blood Elves are toothpicks, and I tend to chuckle a little when I see them running around carrying giant buster swords. Koralie with her katana looks much more believable.

Also, nice to see my guildie up here!

Drama Mamas: When roleplayed love is in the air {WoW}

Feb 13th 2012 7:01PM I am not one to endorse avoiding RP romance all together, however I've never been involved in one with a man who wasn't my fiance. I think it's possible to come upon someone who can separate OOC and IC well enough as long as boundaries are established from the beginning.

Honestly, the majority of the romances I've written through RP have been with other, like-minded straight women. I've written the male half of three or four of these. The characters are decidedly not me. Not only are they men (I'm a woman, clearly!) but they tend to be personalities about as far from me as possible. At no point would I ever be attracted to another woman or the woman's character (If anything I find myself fond of my own character, in the same way a novelist might write about a love interest for their protagonist that they would find attractive if they existed in life), not to mention I'm completely open and honest about every RP I write to my fiance as well. He's an RPer, too; he just prefers to write less drama-filled romance than some of my lady RP friends do, and he's completely understanding.

If you really do just want to RP a romance for the fun and drama of a good story, I've found this to be just about the safest way possible. Find a like-minded RPer, be open and honest with all affected parties (such as my fiance or anyone who might misunderstand), and be open to RPing characters, not RPing as yourself--which doesn't always mean sticking strictly to your gender.

If you have a problem with RPing with a player who is not the gender/affiliation that you are attracted to, then you're probably not being honest with yourself about why you want to write the RP romance to begin with.

Patch 4.3.2 PTR official patch notes {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 10:09AM As a Holy Pally, I approve of this change. In BC I spammed FoL. In Wrath I spammed HL. Finally in Cata it felt like I was using more than one button and healing was actually pretty interesting. ...Then they made Radiance absurdly powerful, and it was back to the button spam. One heal should never be 50%+ of my total healing. If that's the correct way to play I'd rather play another healer than die of boredom spamming HR x3 -> LoD, rinse repeat.

Breakfast Topic: What's behind stereotypes about what ladies play in WoW? {WoW}

Dec 26th 2011 10:03AM I am a 30-something woman with two mains, one pally healer and one DK tank. My tank is by far my favorite character to play (mainly because DK play style be it tank or dps just suits me), and I am also one of our guild's raid leaders on the DK. I guess people who don't hear me on mumble don't realize I'm female though; about half of my toons including my tank are male. Hey, male belf has the best 2-handed animation in the game imo!

As far as dps goes I do a little of all of it, but I prefer melee. I feel a lot more bad ass if I'm up close and personal slashing the heck out of a boss than standing far back and casting spells.

I enjoy healing too, and the best healers in our guild are female, it's true, so I suppose I'm not the true anti-stereotype. I just try to do a little of everything. This is a game we all pay for and personally I like to experience as much content as possible. I love PVP on my DK, especially arenas!
