May 15th 2007 8:18PM When BC hit the streets, I rerolled Blood Elf and had a friend from my old Guild buy a gray item in the Neutral AH for something like 300 Gold. After gliding through the Belf Starting Areas I ran into that wall commonly called The Barrens and got quite bored with the Horde.
When Blizzard announced, "No new Servers for you!" (must be spoken like the soup Nazi in the Seinfeld episode), I rerolled a Female Draenei Shaman on Terrokar. So far she's almost up to Level 52 and I am having a blast. No more Protection Specc'd Human Warrior for me.
May 14th 2007 10:49PM This whole argument reminds me of another game (a non-computer game) called Magic:The Gathering. The first rank of "professional" tournaments were limited to those people who possessed the powerful Type 1 Magic cards. Quite expensive to purchase if you didn't start the game when it first came out. What did the company do? It appeased the masses by creating another line of "professional" tournaments where you did not have to have the most powerful cards to be competitive. I suggest that Blizzard should follow that vein and create Arenas for lower level toons to compete in.
To be honest, I have never shared my account information with anyone nor would I. When I am done playing the game, I will probably give away all my items and gold, delete all my toons, and start playing another game. I despise people who purchase toons on eBay and I despise people who cheat by running a leveling bot. These people should not only be banned from the game but their real life names should be made public by Blizzard!
May 14th 2007 4:41PM My favorite skinning ploy is skin the mob that the bot just killed before the bot can skin it. It's quite easy too. You just stand there, the bot will loot the mob, hesitate for a second or two, and then try to skin the mob while you are looting the skin. I'm on a PvE Medium Population Server (Terrokar) which has a ton of bots on it. It's quite fun following them around, tagging the mobs for them to kill for me, or skinning the mobs that I failed to tag first. Skinning a bot's mob...FTW!!!
May 11th 2007 12:14AM To # 18: Is that because you prostitute yourself? Sorry, couldn't have had a better line served up on a more silvery platter! LOL!
My name is Rebekka and I am an Altaholic.
In fact, I am so much of an Altaholic that I got a warning from Blizzard around the time that Burning Crusades came out that I had reached the maximum number of characters per account when I just "had to create this wonderful Blood Elf Warlock"...
Basically, like most of the people, my fun comes in playing the game not trying to be in some type of uber Raiding Guild. My play time is limited to between the hours of 8am to 9am Eastern until about 1pm to 2pm Eastern. I also play sometimes to relax after work between 1 am and about 2am to 3am Eastern. Since I work Night Shift, my chances of getting a spot in that uber Raiding Guild is pratically nil as I am also a father and a husband so my weekend times are limited as I prefer to see my family rather than play WoW. Yes, I've tried to get the wife to play. I'd much rather try to move a mountain!
Enjoy the Alts, keep on making them, leveling them, etc. as, first and foremost, WoW is a game!
May 8th 2007 8:16PM I'm an officer in a relatively large Guild on Terrokar. The Guild's name is Unity. I'm pretty laidback in recruiting but I felt that I had to set some rules today.
While soloing the Bloodsail Captains, I received an anonymous whisper from someone wanting to join the Guild. I ALWAYS ignore anonymous whispers. About five minutes later, I get another whisper about not responding to the first whisper. Immediately, I posted in Guild Chat that no Guild Member is allowed to give out the Officers' Names. If a Guild Member receives a whisper from someone interested in interviewing to join the Guild, that Guild Member must either whisper an Officer or, better still, announce in Guild Chat that so and so would like information on joining the Guild.
Needless to say, the anonymous whisper never did get a Guild Invite. It may be the Guild's loss, but I believe that good things always come to those who wait.
May 4th 2007 12:17AM @ 7 : Yes, I realize that living at home and sponging off your mommy and your daddy allows you more than enough time to devote to hardcore raiding. Unfortunately, the vast majority of WoW players do not live at home with mommy and daddy, eat food other than hot pockets, have a real-life significant other in their lives, have a job so that they don't have to sponge off of mommy and daddy, etc., etc. Congrats to you for being such a hopeless, helpless, clueless loser who's only chance of female companionship will probably be calling up the local hooker.
With that off my chest, I agree with one person about opening up new quest lines for those of us who have life responsibilites. BTW, did finally experience SFK on my new shammy...that place does rock...it's a shame that only pallys can get a quest for there.
May 2nd 2007 8:11PM I almost feel sorry for the poor bozo. Especially when you consider how many times that we receive whispers in game about buying gold. Yes, I understand that Blizzard has something in their End User Agreement about not buying gold. However, I am almost tempted to buy the gold, let Blizzard ban my account, and then sue Blizzard for not protecting me, the purchaser of their product, from the in-game whispers which are surely sponsored by them since they occur so frequently and must be paid advertisements by companies owned by Blizzard. How else could they keep on whispering me?
Apr 30th 2007 11:11PM Why is always in Deadmines/VC that the ninjas crop up first? Anyways, I leveling up a Priest Alt and a tailoring recipe drops. I ask if I can "need" on it. Everyone agrees except the Warrior also "needs" on it. He wins the need roll. I ask him why. He states that he's a tailor too. I told him that since he was a tailor, I hope that he's also a healer as I ain't healing him no more. Needless to say, he dies next pull, gets kicked from the group, and we 4-man all the way with no deaths. Ninjas FTL!
Apr 27th 2007 9:54PM I'm also a farmaholic. I farm for hours at a time trying to get either Worn Dragonscale or even, perish the thought, Turtle Scale. I am a Level 42 Draenei Shaman on Terrokar. However, I am far from a bot. I am smart enough to outsmart farming bots who skin too if they are able to tag the mob first. Just stand there and keep on clicking the right mouse button as all bots have that moment's hesitation before trying to skin the dead mob. I get so tired of reporting the bots as all of the ones that I have reported already are still playing WoW on Terrokar. So I just say, "Fuck it. If you can't beat them at the game, go play another game!" LOL!
Apr 18th 2007 8:24PM My wife hates my addiction to WoW. However, I am extremely lucky as a long time ago (over 21 years ago), we made a decision to have basically seperate lives so that one of us would always be with our daughter. She works daywork, I work nightshift. However, I must admit that although I play way too much World of Warcrack, I would be considered only a "casual" gamer as Saturday nights are iffy (one of the few nights my wife and I can spend together) and most Sundays pretty much out of the question.
