Jan 11th 2008 2:35PM I like the Penryn MacPro.
Dec 17th 2007 10:25AM I'm working on the ultimate nerd screen shot: a list of 10 level 70 characters. I have a levle 60 undead rogue, a level 70 shaman, a level 64 priest, and then all my alts are 20+. My current goal is to get them all to 25, then it'll be 30 and so on. Resting bonus rotation for the win. It's fun to have a stable of characters to play with when I'm grouping.
Here's the prototype of the screenshot:

Also, his is really good, too.
Apr 12th 2007 10:07AM @9 One, its a thread about buggy encounters. Amazingly enough, we're all talking about buggy encounters. And two, if a bug occurs to even 50% of the groups that run it, then that's something that maybe should've been caught in testing.
Blizz is quick on their feet for the most part, yes. It's just amazing how the same goofy bugs crop up in different forms over and over again.
Apr 12th 2007 9:30AM The Battle of the Crimson Watch in shadowmoon is a neat concept; outdoor battle of semi-epic proportions. You turn in a book you get off an elite and then accept the next phase. However, my group didn't get prompted to accept the next phase, even though we were all turned in. Then, after helping another group finish up, we tried it again, three of us not abandoning the quest we had in our logs because IT WASN'T MARKED FAILED. The only requisite is that you defeat Illidian's forces 0/1. The two members that did accept a fresh quest in time got a completion. The rest of us got squat.
I just about screamed. If you know the area then you know its a frustrating place to get to with non-flying members and then to have it bug out and screw three of us out of a nice ring and a very unique tabard is the poo icing on the crap cake.
Mar 27th 2007 10:47AM Arygos has two folks that spam trade with inane crap.
One was named Drhuxtabol that would be logged in for hours at a time sending out eulogies about the untimely death of Bill Cosby (NO HE DIDN'T DIE) every 30 seconds or so.
The other is named Leetsauce, and his MO is asking what you put Leetsauce on.
As for me, I'm very liberal with my ignore list. Usually I'll put anyone who is rude to me on ignore. This is usually people who bitch when I'm fighting along and happen to kill a mob they were waiting to respawn stealthed, half a mile away. Or making my way around grabbing collectible crap that spawns all over the zone (zepplin parts, bits of metal and wood) and get crap from someone who inisists they were headed to grab the item, even though I can't even see them in the vicinity.
I've really only had one guy hop on an alt to have another go at me, and he actually apologized for being a jerk.
I play the game to relax, and I use the ignore list to cut off most extra-guild drama before it even starts.
Mar 26th 2007 9:56AM Lanwar/WSVG is coming up again this summer here in Louisville, KY and my guild is very excited. We all went and played WoW for 3 full days last year, saw the sights, laughed at the nerds and got on Blizz's site with our chair decorations (thereby making us laughable nerds). We even recruited some great new guild members from the guys around us. Blizz ran quite a few tournaments there, including a lvl 20 WSG tournament, fastest strat runs, and a couple of others. This is by no means a small thing. Check out the Lanwar site for a sense of just how huge the area is.
We're sorta unique since of our 70 5-man, 4 of them play on mac's, meaning they don't do a lot of other PC gaming. I, however, still play my fair share of FPSes. I agree that broadband has led to a decrease in the smaller, basement parties, but our little guild still drags our systems over to someone's house every month or so to raid and such face-to-face.
Mar 19th 2007 1:31PM The game premiered late 2004, when I was trying to graduate. I actually gave away my stress-test beta key so I wouldn't get the hooks in. Of course, come February 2005, I was out of college and my fiance bought it for me to celebrate getting my fist big-boy job.
Mar 5th 2007 1:55PM I'd have to say the one I did last night in Terokkar was pretty damn fun. It starts with escorting a band of dwarven excavators to a dig site, and them findng a drum. The drum summons a crust-burster. The follow-up to the quest entail playing the drum around the bone wastes and being attacked by a) a mature crust burster or b) a sand gnome.
The whole thing finishes with you trying to summon "The Big Bone Worm". My warrior buddy and I were taking it on the chin the first 4 or 5 times we tried to summon him. The crust bursters spawn 3 at a time and have a spamming ranged attack of 1k. Then he decided to test a theory. Before playing the drum he /danced, busted into a Travolta-disco pose, and played the drum, only to summon a 10 story tall crust burster I had to zoom out to see.
Really, the thing that makes the quest is all the dialogue. But, after you down the giant bone worm, you get the krysknife of dib-muad, which any Dune fan will recognize.
