The trinkets of Magisters' Terrace {WoW}

Apr 5th 2008 6:43PM Just got the Vial last night. Awesome, awesome trinket. Thanks for the heads up about the silence. In addition, it appears that it benefits slightly from your bonus healing. I sit at +1656 non-buffed and with the trinket fully charged I'll heal for 2200.

Another blow in the keylogging experience {WoW}

Mar 15th 2008 11:44AM A question and a comment.

First, it's incredibly amazing and disheartening to see the inconsistency that Blizzard staff--including customer reps and GMs--have in regards to restoring items. Here, Amanda pleads and pleads with Blizz to restore lost items and they spout off BS saying that they have no record of what she had, yet a guildie of mine gets a GM to restore an item he vendored over a year ago simply because the guildie says he needs it for an upcoming boss fight!

Secondly, in regards to restoring lost items, would screenshots help if you sent them to Blizz in case of an account hack or would Blizz simply think you are playing around with the in-game dressing room or something like that?

Forum post of the day: These are the people in your raid {WoW}

Feb 16th 2008 8:30PM How about the incessant lock life-tapper? I'm not talking about life-tapping during boss fights...no, this is the one who life-taps between trash pulls when they could just as easily sit and eat/drink like the rest of us. I've stopped healing her; unfortunately, our pally ponies up every time to the point she calls him her "pocket pally."

And yeah, she also happens to be the SO of our RL. :(

Officers' Quarters: When your mate is a member {WoW}

Dec 31st 2007 12:12PM My wife is our GM of our medium-sized guild and I'm not an officer. Quite frankly, I'm AOK with that. I never have, and never want to be an officer. I make it a point to tell other members when it comes up that she runs the guild how she wants and I don't have access to /o or to the officer forums on the guild site. Obviously, we talk about how the guild is going/running, and our love of WoW in general, but her and her officers can make all of the tough decisions.

We leveled up our mains together and unlike me, she's an altoholic and I help her occasionally with instances, but most of the time, other than raiding, we're spending what we deem as "quality time" while she's working on alts and I'm doing dailies.

Ask WoW Insider: Best way to find a new server? {WoW}

Oct 5th 2007 6:32PM This may seem completely random, but I'd begin narrowing my search down by looking at the realms whose server time matches my own time zone. It still frustrates me that I didn't think about the importance of this when I was a newb rolling my first toon to play with my friends.

Now, of course, I belong to a great guild and would never want to leave, but it does create some frustration that many of them are on the West Coast and I live on the East Coast. (Granted, this type of situation will always occur, but...meh. What can you do?)

Here's to wishing Blizz would let you know such things when you're selecting realms for the first time...grrr...

Why do we gank? {WoW}

May 6th 2007 11:38AM My experience comes from the Barov quest (PvE server) as well. Pre-BC my fiance and I headed over to the Horde camp, and there happened to be a couple of Horde standing there who figured out what we were up to. We called in reinforcements from the guild, but by the time they arrived, several high-level Horde had gathered there as well. When the carnage ended, we were left victorious, but there was a 30-something rogue who had joined in the fray, just kinda standing there. I knew it was ganking and I had been against it, but I took him out anyway--and I did feel bad about that.
