Dec 13th 2011 4:07PM Hey Mat! Could you please post the names of the peripherals you mentioned as your favourites? My folks and wife are going to buy me a new mouse/keyboard for Chrimbo and I was going to research which ones to get when I heard your timely answer on the podcast.
Thanks man. Merry Christmas from England!
Dec 13th 2011 6:08AM Here is a crazy idea: remove resilience from pvp gear (but keep pvp gear as a whole aesthetically different from pve gear). Give each character an inbuilt amount as default (something they're going to do in MoP) that automatically gives you x damage reduction against crits etc as it does now, and then allow people to gem or enchant for it, but otherwise keep it off gear. That way pvp gear = pve gear and vice versa.
Dec 12th 2011 1:18PM I tank or I heal. I don't do dps and I don't do ranged classes. I have a level 85 warrior, paladin and death knight, all tanks and an 85 shaman who is a healer. Dps bores me to tears and I zone out and I can't get on with ranged, preferring to be all RAWR IN YER FACE melee. This has it's drawbacks, however, on terms of often you actually see very little of the fight aside from a dragon/demon/whatever's crotch. Did I mention my warrior and dk are gnomes and my pala is dwarf? :p
Dec 10th 2011 7:44PM Christ, you guys were interrupting each other so much this podcast, really got on my nerves. Particularly Anne, who just interrupted constantly. So rude!
Nov 24th 2011 9:32AM When I first started playing, back at EU release, I levelled an Alliance Rogue, Warrior and Paladin with friends. They ended up leaving the game during TB when all 3 of my toons were 70. Other friends joined, playing Horde on a new server and they asked me to join them. I ended up making a Horde rogue, warrior and paladin and getting them up to 70, too.
This was, of course back before faction transfers, before xp nerfs to old world and TBC, before heirlooms.
Those 3 original alliance toons are still siting at 70 and have been since TBC. I miss them, but since I have been horde ever since TBC, and levelled replacements; I saw no reason to ever play them again.
Oct 24th 2011 2:10PM Bravo, well said and well written. What a fantastic article. I hope others find your optimism surrounding the expansion as infectious as I did.
Write more articles, Anne!
Oct 10th 2011 8:30AM I always found it odd that, of all the Horde races that could originally be hunters, Tauren were the only ones to start with a gun. I thought this was a stark contrast to their obvious Native American roots...
Dwarves using guns makes perfect sense in the context of the game.
My only issue is that most guns these days look awful and don't even resemble guns!
Oct 6th 2011 4:52PM Indeed. It is a mechanic used in most other mmo's I've tried over the years. If you have some account bound items, you type /claim and it adds them to your inventory. See: LotRO, AoC and Rift. Easy peasy.
Oct 6th 2011 1:17PM Why don't they just use a /claim method like every other MMO?
Jul 15th 2011 10:04AM I doubt many people anticipated it at all - experience has taught us that when a new PVP season begins, the previous season's gear becomes available for honour. Never before has a 'new' low version been implemented, replacing the old tier, so how could anyone possibly anticipate it happening?
'20k whiners' who were 'burned by their greed' is a very narrow minded and simplistic view of the situation. No one was greedy, they just played the game. They played and earned their s9 epic gear just like anyone else would. They weren't greedy, they were just playing the game. How is that greed? Is someone grinding heroics to get justice points to buy tier gear greedy? Of course it wasn't. Don't be so naive.
