The dagniopadipngasdkl;nasg'asgkasn'gasd WoW site is STILL down. I cannot get it to open to save my life.

No WoW for me tonight. :(

You might find this odd; but I think some people are getting sick of the total n00bs, that get rushed to lvl 60 in a forte night, and have no idea of how to play. Peeps have also gotten sick of lvl 1s demanding practically that lvl 60s come down and spend all their time lvling them to 60 *now* so they don't have to play*, while trade window spamming for gold.

As to the low guys who want a fast rush so they don't have to play the game (and never learn); many of us are just sick of random runs through instances from lfg channel where we get them, and never make it through..

That's why the game should start everyone at level 60. The grind up to 60 is just a speedbump, and it is total B.S. People spend a hundred bucks on a leveling service to get them through the crap and allow them to start playing with everyone else. Hey, Guess what, no matter what class you play, there are only a handful of functions required to play in group or a raid. If you really think your class takes 3-6 months to learn, then you greatly overestimate your duties in a group - or you do not know how to play your class.

World of Warcraft is a fairly fun game, but it is mostly a huge time-sink. I think it is Blizzard's ploy to get people to invest a ton of time, thus they are less likely to leave should they get bored with the end-game. (People don't like to think they made bad investments, less so when they make bigger investments.)

Demon Soul. I have characters on like 3 or 4 other servers, but I can't remember which and no one else I know is on them anymore. :( Ah well...fresh start.

Actually the patch wasn't bad for warriors at all. Much ado about nothing, it seems. My rage generation is just fine and the new talents rock (especially Second Wind, MAN that is a great talent).

whats up with the mods for wow...every time blizzard farts you have to get an update for the mods....this is part of the reason i left last year, thought they would have done something about that by now.

I never have to change my mods unless a very large content patch is pushed through, which hasn't happened since Naxx.

QFMf'nT.

A level 60 warlock was my main on a PvP server and he rocked everything. Mind you he only had a few tier 1 epics, with some other purples thrown in (mana-igniting cord, azuresong mageblade, which is btw still ownage) but I've seen Tier 2/2.5 warlocks absolutely trash groups of people. Those are the ones you hear horror stories about.

LoL, I better leave this thread before I reactivate my account again.


so I solo'ed a warlock in WSG today on my rogue. I've cleared bosses in Naxx, dealt the killing blow to bosses in there as a pally as well, but nothing felt more satisfying than my first patch 2.0 lock kill. I was yelling in excitement at my feat over Vent to my guildies.

I have heavily PVPed since Tuesday and Ive seen single locks destroy groups of 2-3 people. I'm just now getting geared up enough in pvp epics to actually survive 2 damn DOT's.

Actually, I'm not so sure... I run into too many people who go into an instance run; and are such nubs... It's like this time I was helping a guildie get Uldaman with his lvl 42 warrior. So I came in with my then lvl 55 paly, and only thing we were lacking was a mage. So we hit lfg for it, and get someone who doesn't know what sheep is, can't frost nova, and along the way finally says "oh I'm a fire mage". One should still learn sheep :lol2:

So, everyone but me dies, and I go to res them in order. This, I couldn't even say my thoughts about this individual here, decides she's gonna try to be a mage tank, and runs in trying to tank every fricken last monster in the instance before I can res anyone. So getting in trouble, runs the whole mob into me, of course palys don't have battle res and it's a wipe. Why the flying **** do some clothies insist on trying to tank? :thumbdwn:

Between that, and some people (like this one hunter we got from lfg for a UBRS run, that went running in, has to be resed/summoned, complained "you take too long" as we were setting up the battles, and of course the run went 10x faster after he was gone and one of our guilde's own hunters came on; I've rather grown to detest PuGs for higher lvl instances... If I don't know the people, I could almost care less to even try to do a BRD run or higher with randoms anymore...

Sigh, not sure about any of your realms, but here on Aman'Thul some level 5s; the sort that would run around town begging for gold, and dancing naked to try to get some, have come up with a new bit of greed to revel in the in-game festivities. Because the christmas gifts require one to give 5 gingerbread cookies to Santa, and it's a lvl 1 cooking recipee that requires 5 small eggs; they've taken to charging 2 gold for small eggs or gingerbread cookies... The acts of a true Goblin :thumbsdwn:

Anyhow, my thought, is that all the high levels record their names, and the next time these individuals ask for help on a lowbie instance run, an elite/difficult quest, charge them through the roof. With the words "remember those eggs..." comes a "I'm sorry but my services can't come free to extortionists." Truly a sad state of affairs when Christmas comes down to this :lol:

I had far more fun playing WoW 1-59 than I ever did at 60. Maybe my experience was different because I started on a brand new server and I leveled along with the rest of the server (so there were always people your level around), and though leveling is technically "the grind," it feels like so much less of a grind than playing a 60 itself does.

I'm having a good time at level 60, any my 24 days to hit level 60 pales in comparison to how long I have played now. I've been with my guild through Dire Maul to Naxxramas and WoW is just getting better.

Granted, the new patch has MESSED up class balance and roles in PvE, but time will fix this I'm sure.

I've been playing with my 3v3 arena team a lot and we are kicking serious ass. I cant wait for the ladder to be implemented.

Up to 82 /played days, 12 of which got me to 60. Sure was something that kept me playing all the time. ;)

Leveling to 60 however is a ton of fun as well. The thing is, the path to 60 and the endgame are pretty much two different games entirely. I'm actually in the process of leveling an alt and I'm having so much fun, I'm seriously considering playing him in the expansion rather than my main.

Players who pay people to level their characters are complete idiots and by the time they get on their high-level characters, they'll be horrible players because they have no idea how to play their class. These are the morons who wipe groups due to having no idea what they are doing. Paying someone to level your guy is the biggest waste of money imaginable in WoW, especially since you'll suck so bad that nobody will want you in a group or endgame guild.

I played for about 90 minutes tonight in 2560x1600 with 2xAA and 16xAF and the game ran butter smooth the whole time. The lowest it ever got was 25 FPS and averaged around 36FPs.

Absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad it supports 16:10 natively. :D

But it is Vert - you lose some of the top and bottom, IMO only Hor + is proper 16:10

The game offered 2560x1600 as a native resolution...

How much are the Nether Dragons and the riding skill going to cost?

Ninjaman09
01-23-07, 07:32 AM
Nether Drakes are a PvP mount for topping the arena ladder, normal flying mounts cost 100g and epics cost 200g but the training is expensive. 1000g for normal flying mount training (60% speed bonus) and 5000g for epic flying mount training (250% speed bonus).

Ok, I heard that but I wanted to see if some one else had the same information. That price is ****ING stupid. I know you make a lot more money in Out Land but that is just plain dumb

I've heard rumors posted about (and note their rumors, I've seen no confirmation to); that Nether dragons might also be available through faction rep; similar to how the Frostsaber mount works presently. If this is true, one could get a such a mount by grinding rep, through a repeatable reputation quest (if the current pattern holds +75 rep) from 0 neutral to exalted status.

My experience doing this with Wintersaber trainers (currently like 3,000 honored), is that this is long, arduous (the frostsaber meat provisions quest had bad drop rates, and with the patch comming out everyone was grinding Winterfall furlbogs for firewater and ekos, making it hard to get the 5 shamy and to a lesser degree the 5 ursa per turn in.

It's a long haul, but if one could get it through rep; I might be up for giving it a shot. If one could possibly get this through rep as well, I'd be up for giving it a shot. However being in Hellfire peninsula (and having waited largely on going through the portal till I could go through with a friend); I'm far from being able to check the veracity of such speculation which has been given forth in the past.

There is no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole.

I didn't see the joke when I read your full signature, so I'm going to logically conclude that you're an idiot for posting such an ignorant statement as you have above in your signature.

Grow the hell up and learn a few things.
