WoW Moviewatch: Emergency Kindergarten - Lesson 1, Shapes and Colors {WoW}

Sep 14th 2009 1:08PM Fyre is famous! I remember when she posted this on our forums ages ago, and it's still just as funny today.

Breakfast topic: Your priority list {WoW}

May 14th 2009 10:18AM I raided heavily throughout college, when my late-start classes allowed me to be up until 1am every night. Now that I've graduated and am working full time as a teacher, I simply don't have that time commitment. Sure, I'd love to see Ulduar, but I can't invest hours at a time to play and progress.

I'm at the point now where though I love the game, I generally log on to do some dailys, maybe a heroic or 10-man EoE, and log off. For me, although raiding is/was a blast, my real enjoyment is the leveling process with close RL friends.

To that end I have been playing Lord of the Rings Online with my long-time gaming partner, and we are slowly making our way through the levels, enjoying the process in a fresh environment. Though I play WoW, it isn't a priority in my life.

Encrypted Text: I roll on caster loot {WoW}

Dec 10th 2008 11:52AM Complaining about your hit percentage while playing in PvP gear AND spec is ludicrous. If you want to PvE effectively, put up or shut up - there's no place for PvP geared players whining about PvE performance.

TwentyFifthNovember becomes Ensidia {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 8:41AM I can't fathom how ANYONE could possibly care about this. I'm not condemning the fact that it was posted, because I love reading WI and tend to read whatever they post - but I haven't read any post by a guild that is more egotistical.

They partnered with some sponsor in Dubai?

For Epicz?

That's gotta be the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time, and the attitude they have taken is just disgusting. No one cares about your e-accomplishments, Viagra! Err... Ensidia. Congratulations for defeating your pixels, but let's be serious - you are not a "franchise." You're a guild. In a videogame. You aren't superstars.

Is anyone else totally bored by this whole thing? The competition was the interesting part of the raid scene, and now it's just boring when the same superguild destroys whatever Blizzard comes out with. Sure, part of it is probably a question to Blizz themselves - "why is it so damned easy?" - but even then, I don't imagine what this guild is doing could possibly be considered fun.

Breakfast Topic: Are you leveling your Professions? {WoW}

Nov 20th 2008 8:30AM I dropped LW on my rogue pre-WotLK, after quitting raiding. I started Inscription, but had it hovering around 180 skill until yesterday, when I took a break from leveling to grind it out. Sitting at 370 Inscription now, and now that I'm using Northrend herbs to skill up I don't feel like I'm behind anymore. I'll grind out whatever's left when I hit 80, but for now I'm leveling as I go.

Breakfast Topic: Themed names {WoW}

Jul 11th 2008 4:59PM I don't have a theme, but my main is always Algos. I have certain alt names I always use - Kithera, Kilera, Parapet and Question. At the moment, my hunter Parapet has sorta become my main - so his pet is named Algos in tribute.

Behind the Curtain: How far is too far? {Massively}

Jun 4th 2008 7:51AM It didn't take much to pull me out of SWG, but the WoW experience just hasn't gotten stale for me yet. I had to quit raiding a month or two ago (1/6 Sunwell at the time) due to my new grad school schedule, so my playtime decreased dramatically. Since starting school, I've settled in enough to play regularly, but not enough to be able to re-join the raid game.

As much as I miss playing with my Scarlet Crusade friends, the amount of time they have outside of raids is small, and tough to manage. I've taken to defecting Alliance side with my RL friends. We currently have Deadmines on farm, and it is keeping the game fresh for us (I've only ever mained Horde toons.)

WoW is a prime example of fantastic game design that keeps you coming back. It will take a KILLER game to bring me out, but I play the game for my friends when it comes down to it. I'm waiting on Warhammer (I'm in beta now) and my friends and I will assuredly move on to that, but for now there's enough to keep us in Azeroth.
