WTB Armory online -- I've got things to track in Hearthstone.

where they describe connecting your Hearthstone App's minifeed into twitter stream using a few common web2.0 style sites.
Much easier than running your own client script.
Apr 19th 2009 9:56AM If you're running less than 20% free diskspace when you patch, you should also defragment your harddrive. The patch files are large, and it gets re-written many times in teh course of the update so it can get spread all over your disk causing high seek times too.
If you're on a mac, you need to do some tricky stuff to get it done. Open up a Terminal window (in your Applications => Utilities) and then do the following script (caveat emptor)
cd "/Applications/World of Warcraft/data"
dd if=patch.MPQ of=copy.dat bs=32768k
mv copy.dat patch.MPQ
If you've never done this since upgrading to Wrath, then also do it for the lichking.MPQ too.

Apr 3rd 2009 10:49PM Exactly. A lot of people forget that gear used to be phased in as you leveled. If I remember right, this was the first ring reward I ever got. Like the Argent Dawn Trinket was the first trinket ever received.
JewelCrafters and PvP twink trinkets etc didn't always exist.
At the time, you took any and every ring you could get even if it was 'meant' for your class.
Feb 15th 2009 1:26PM It should be said that you get 5x of each of the reward you choose, not a single. So you can get those achievements done in two turn-ins if you're getting unlucky with those parts.
I spent the time to go get two stacks of arrows since I hadn't seen any of those drop, and of course the next two hours after that I get the arrows all over again :-(
Also, only the arrows are soulbound so if you're an entrepenur, you could do these for the rockets and rose petals if you have the gumption to try and hawk them on trade you might make a bundle.
Feb 12th 2009 8:13PM For those concerned about the candy -- I haven't tried it myself yet (cause I trashed the 8 of the 10 I had before it occurred to me) but they aren't bound. Can you trade them with others to get the ones you don't have?

Ah... you probably could have worded that better. You sound as if you're saying any thing not done by the chosen elite is inherently poor? It's the opinion of many these days that the crowd is much better off than the expert.
