Mar 28th 2007 1:57PM I have to admit, I never though dwarf women could get any uglier. That pic proves me wrong.
Mar 28th 2007 7:09AM All I know, is I was friendly with Scryer, and I had a quest for basilisk eyes. I rounded up the 10 eyes I needed and when I went to turn in the quest, it said "Turning in this quest will increase your reputation with the Aldors and decrease your reputation with the Scryers"
If the basilisk eye quest is unavailable to someone friendly with Scryer, then how did I have it?
I haven't had time to look it up, but I don't doubt that you guys are right. The only thing I am asking now is how did mine get backwards?
And @Jason, /rude.
Mar 28th 2007 6:58AM Hunter's causing problems, who knew?
I have to agree with the whole raid marker thing. Wehn I went after my dreadsteed, I was the only one in the group who had been in DM recently. I had been there with a few other PUG's for the same attempt, and all failed miserably. But since I knew where I was going this time, I was able to coordinate and use the raid markers to guide the group. That run was successful too.
Mar 27th 2007 2:40PM Beyond all that I just said, there are plenty of broken things in the game. Even if there is a rep requirement for the use of an item, theres always the possibility that requirement is broken and you can take advantage of it until the devs fix it.

No, I am pretty sure you are the one who is backwards on that.
I had scryers rep, and accidently picked up the aldor rep grind quest (saw a !, right clicked, skimmed quest requirements, clicked accept) and spent about 10 minutes grinding basilisks before I realized turning in the quest was going to give me aldor rep.
I looked up the quest giver for the spider quest and it was unavailable for someone with scryer rep.
So, grind basilisks to go from scryer to aldor, grind spiders to go from aldor to scryers.
PVP rewards used to require you to keep the same rank to be able to continue to use those items. That changed some time ago when rank 14 players complained they did all that work for a set that requires them to spend all their time PVPing just to keep using the set.
And the "Requiers Exhalted Aldor/Scryer" requirement is what appears when you mouse over the item when you try to buy it from a vendor. If this indication stays on the actual weapon after purchase, then I would say yes, you have to keep exhalted to use it.
Mar 27th 2007 2:08PM Pre-expansion rep requirements were only there for purchasing of items and not on their use. I don't know if this has changed in the expansion, especially with this different rep system forcing a decision between aldor and scryer. In my mind though, you would probably hve to be exhalted just to use the item you bought. Else everyone just does the rep grind to get all the goodies from both sides, eliminating the purpose of having the 2 sides to begin with.
Mar 27th 2007 12:07PM I definantly agree with bliz on this. Adding new, un-necessary servers would only increase their maintenance load. That could mean a possible increase in the subscription fee to cover those costs. Fill up the existing realms first, then they can afford to create new realms and not have to raise the fee to do so.
Mar 27th 2007 12:03PM OH god I hate when people invite you to a group/challenge you to a duel without at least asking first. When I started my BE lock this pally kept following me inviting me to a group and never once whispered me. THis went on for about 20 minutes before I whispered him "NO" and he went away. I hate noob zones because of people like that.
Then theres the people always standing outside the gates of Org challenging everyone who goes past to a duel. Its not like I stopped to watch and showed some interest, I'm just passing through, leave me alone, I have leveling to do.
Mar 27th 2007 11:56AM As a side note on what happened to the highborne.
The ones that were dragged below the sea turned into naga.
Some of them were corupted somehow and turned into harpies.
Lord Xavious, who served the burning legion in the first war, was turned into the first satyr. He then corrupted other highborne and turned them into satyrs as well.
The remaining highborne that didn't become naga, harpies, or satyrs, rebelled against the night elves new laws against arcane magic, and were banished from kalimdor. They settled in Lordearon and renamed themselves High Elves. Later, after Arthas ripped them all a new one, they renamed themselves Blood Elves in memory of their fallen. Though some decided to stay as High Elves for some reason or another and eventually stayed loyal to the alliance. If you're horde, theres some high elves you can kill in The Hinterlands and EPL.
Mar 27th 2007 9:31AM A mage or a lock may be able to AoE the mobs to death faster, but I doubt a lock or mage would be able to make the run to the end of the instance without dieing. All that plate is what allowed the pally to make that run.
Next, if you watch, the pally healed himself several times, something a lock and a mage would need healthstones and pots to do, making it very dificult for them to survive.
This pally simply had time on his side, something a lock or a mage would not have.
That being said, I'd like to see a mage or a lock do this. Would be much more impressive than the pally doing this.
