Apr 2nd 2012 6:58PM I'm looking to start a small naked run challenge for my guild, and I was wondering, what do you guys think is the hardest raid content a raid group of naked 85s could tackle? I'm thinking Ulduar might be impossible, since Flame Lev's vehicles determine their health/DPS via your gear, but maybe Naxx? Also, do you guys think I should allow (non-white) weapons? I mean, I'm pretty much resigned to allowing vendor weaponry, but I don't really know if I want to allow Tarecs and stage one Fangs in the contest.
Apr 2nd 2012 6:56PM People are jerks, plain and simple. I encountered more straight-up rudeness while leveling my most recent alt than I have since -- well, no, LFR is pretty bad too, but the new five-mans are (in my experience) a model of pleasantry in comparison. But it seems like nobody has any patience anymore for people learning new classes, or maybe even how to play for the first time! My only advice to you is to abuse the fact that you're the healer -- if a group looks like it's going to be one of those gogogo groups, then just quietly drop group once they've left you behind, and chuckle to yourself, knowing that you've got an insta-queue waiting for you as soon as you're ready.
Apr 2nd 2012 5:24PM I'm not surprised that Murozond curb stomped Azshara. I think people think favorably of not!Nozdormu because, frankly, his fight is one of the best five-man encounters I've seen in a long while. Who doesn't like the hourglass mechanic? It makes you (up to) 500% more awesome, no matter what role you fill. Azshara's fight, meanwhile, is an irritating basket of adds, interrupting, and DPS who don't seem to understand that staying stock still beneath the slowly descending ball of arcane doom is a bad thing, not that I'm bitter about an astonishingly common inability to understand simple requests like "DON'T STAND THERE PLS," oh no.
Oh, and Mannoroth would eat Godfrey, the end.
Apr 2nd 2012 2:20PM ...is _anybody_ a fan of the Lurker Below?
Mar 29th 2012 9:50PM Yeah, I'm willing to bet it'll be like the Molten Front rewards -- the thought of a steady stream of 60g Maelstroms was too good to be true.
Mar 28th 2012 5:46PM Yeah, this is really one of those books that you probably want to actually hold in your hands. I remember reading it at a friend's house one time, and about halfway through, my friend tilted his head and looked at me and said, "Are you reading that book _upside-down_?" Yeah baby, because that's how the House rolls.

Mar 28th 2012 12:26PM You want a wide spectrum of brilliant, hilarious, and/or downright weird speculative fiction? House of Leaves. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. Anything by China Mieville. Anything by Terry Pratchett. Anything by Octavia Butler.

Mar 27th 2012 3:07PM I agree re: the Zandalari being self-interested and primarily concerned with the continuity of the trolls, but I guess I also always thought of them as more...mmm, principled, I guess? Like, they stood against the Gurubashi when it became evident that they were going down a dark path with Hakkar, and they came to bear witness to the fall of the Drakkari when they devolved into deicide and cannibalism. When other trolls forget the faces of their gods, the Zandalari emerge to remind them, that sort of thing. I liked the image of the Zandalari as arbiters of a uniquely trollish morality, which doesn't jibe with their presentation in 4.2 (and beyond, apparently).
