Apr 11th 2008 5:11PM As a woman, one of my mains is a female tauren shaman - I love the proportions of this toon! I think the tauren females are sexy, w/their great hips. I love towering over all the other horde characters (other than the bulls, of course), and it is definitely the BEST dance in game!
I had a female dwarf hunter, who I also really enjoyed playing, but haven't in a while just because I wanted to cut down on alts.
Feb 9th 2008 7:33PM Great to have a mage column back! I'm all pumped up again, Mages rule!
Nov 2nd 2007 3:52PM @6 I've always thought that the Librarians in-game should be PCs rather than NPCs for that very reason - save players from having to search Thot or Wowwiki all the time to find info.
Yes, I'm a librarian too, don't play WoW at work (I don't know anyone who does), but thank Elune for WoWInsider at lunch!
And FYI, Syracuse University has a Library Game Lab that is "exploring the intersection of libraries & games." http://gamelab.syr.edu/
Sep 13th 2007 4:06PM My husband was hacked, it took nearly a month for Blizz to straighten it out. We honestly thought about leaving WoW forever.
@11, I completely agree with adding some security options. Being able to track logins from a different IP than my home one would be invaluable!
Aug 20th 2007 2:17PM Everyone plays the game differently. I'm defintely a casual player (taken me over 2 years to get up to level 49, w00t!), and not sure I'd consider myself all that skilled. But, as #29 says, I have my own little guild of my friends and family - we play together at our own pace and have a good time. I've PUGged here and there for non-instance quests and usually have a good time - I'm up front with any time limitations and what my goals are, and we get along fine. I certainly admit to any weaknesses I might have as well.
I may be casual, but that doesn't mean I don't love the game - I read this blog avidly, as well as other sites, have the complete set of WoW reference books (b-day present from the hubby, yay!), and study up on instances before a run with my mini-guild. I'll probably be playing this game for a looong time, because there's still so much content I've never seen.

I love being a frost mage!

Apr 18th 2007 5:15PM My husband bought me the game after he'd been playing for a few months - against my wishes, because I was a month away from finishing my Master's degree! Despite that, I managed to graduate and we've been playing happily together, and with our group of friends, for over 2 years. We have a little 5-person group that plays every Friday night - we're like a mini-guild!
Tragedy strikes, however. Blizzard has banned my husband's account for no reason that we can determine (honestly - we are NOT power gamers, not part of a guild, our highest level characters are 44, we don't auction gold on Ebay, I don't even know his password!). He's trying to take it with a grain of salt, but I'm devastated. I would never have thought Blizz would do this to us!
It's been nearly 2 weeks and no response. That's 2 weeks of no WoW!
