World of Warcraft

The wonderful world of video games awaits you. Console or PC. Old school or new school. Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo. It doesn't matter. We don't discriminate.

Fuck WoW being the main video game time consumer, there are so many other better games to waste time on, you could play countless countless countless other games and get so much more out of there stories and VARIETY of different game play, than you could just play WoW like a fiend and wasting YEARS of your life on one game, fuck that, to me that is completely unacceptable as a gamer. I dunno, I enjoy playing MMOs but I have never been able to say I was addicted to one, the max I think I played an MMO was probably not even a whole year. You are losing focus chaos, get your ass back on track!

it is known that chaos and I constantly nit pick at eachother, and while my comments are my true opinions I mainly bring them out in effort to jokingly humiliate... then chaos will inevitably do the same back at me, and everyone laughs (especially me). I should have never told chaos about WoW, he asked me about it one time back when I was still playing, I stopped playing and he has just kept on all these years. So in a sense he is my creation, the WoW beast you see him as today :P. But I guess that is what kinda gives me the right to give him shit about it. But its all in fun, even though I think he should have gave up WoW a LONG LONG time ago.

Also, Wii>WoW ;D


You keep saying you got me started on WoW, but I'm about 99% sure it wasn't you. If it was you, I would of started on a server with you instead of my friend.

Also wii > nothing

Wii's lame. With the occasional cool game. FACT.

Whereas WoW is, well... just lame.

Armory link here but it seems a bit buggy stat wise cause of talents not being factored in.

Well, since dinging 80 and starting raiding (sthing I'd never tried during vanilla or TBC) I've gotten all the gear and stuff I ever wanted, yay.

I had a falling out with some emo people in my casual raiding guild and ended up joining the best harcore PVE guild in my server (this rly pissed off the people in my old guild which was awesome) just before uldar hit, since then I've lost pretty much all my interest in raiding and reverted to being a guildless nomad wandering around old content with irl friends.

Also I started a paladin alt!

And through the miracle of recruit-a-friend she's level 71 after just this long!

Image

However I've lost a bit of motivation to play her, I think mostly because I'm considering re-rolling horde for a bit soon and would prolly make a BE pally, I've not decided yet but I have a pretty nice set of crafted epics in the bank for this one.

On the subject of banks, I've always been pretty bad with saving gold in WoW but since taking up JC and mining I started playing the AH a little and went from 500g to over 8k in a couple of weeks, while I'm still bored of PvE and PvP and stuff I'm still logging in to do my JC daily and do some trading.

I started playing WoW... TCG. And its actually an extremely fun card game. Its very similar to magic the gathering, but with many warcraft twists. All the character classes are in the card game, you have a hero card it has a class (if your hero dies you lose the game), you can put equipment cards with the same class together in the same deck, you actually can run raids (they have raid decks that you battle with a party). Its all in the card game really, I was very surprised at how true it stayed to the actual game. Same items as from the game, EVERYTHING!

Ya, so yall probably dont care, I ALMOST wanted to play WoW again, after playing the card game a few times, but then came to my senses.

I played a couple times after deleting my characters (I know) but I can't get back into it for more than a couple days at a time. I've pretty much moved on.

gimme my wow addiction back and take back the iPhone! I've wasted a lot more money on the iPhone than I ever did with WoW, and I've only had the damn thing a few months!

bambee, you gonna give The Old Republic a try when it comes out? It's looking pretty awesome so far.

I think WoW does this type of MMO the best, especially with the Wotlk quests. WIth the new technology they introduced in WoW, where the world changes based on things you did makes it feel like you are actually making a difference in the game. NPCs are no longer in two places at once (well, only in northrend... the westfall militia and good ol blanchy are still somehow hanging out in westfall and northrend at the same time), based on what you do with quests. I think the best quest chain in the game has to be the ones dealing with the argent vanguard. After summoning some DKs to help you kill some Scourge liutenants. You get on a cannon and destroy 100 creatures while everyone is having an epic battle back on base. After I was done with the quest, I hopped on my mount to fly off elsewhere and the entire camp cheered as I passed by. Awesome.

There is also the other part of the quest where you help take over a piece of land for the Crusade, but it is a lot less epic. You have 3 other elites fighting with you, and a buff that allows you to never run out of mana or health, they could've made the fight a lot better. Right now all that happens is the scource comes at you at nicely in twosies and threesies, allowing you and your crew to kill them before they even get halfway up the hill. Lame. But still, once you are done with the quest you are told to report back to the camp while they set up camp and once you return you find the camp is actually set up.

There are a few other awesome quests, such as the one where you travel around the world of azeroth to find a cure for the plague but I am not going to mention them all. These quests sure as hell beats the "kill X bears" quests. Especially the ones where you are supposed to get something like a bear tongue but not all bears have them. In Wotlk those type of quests still do exist but they are not the bulk of it. Every area you go to has a story that ends by the time you are done questing there. They tried to do this with most other zones in WoW but they fell short. With quests that make you really feel like an active player in the world... of warcraft, you stop doing quests just to level and end up doing them to advance a story. That is how it supposed to be and it is about time a MMO got it right. Other MMOs such as guild wars tried but that resulted in a game that really wasn't a MMO since nearly every area was instanced.

I am excited about the new expansion because it brings the game back to azeroth, making a few changes in the game world, supposedly making it feel a lot more dynamic. Now only if WoW did away with levels and went with a skill based system like SWG had...

I don't know about the getting rid of levels part. There's something about being max level that I like. Not sure how SWG did it, but didn't that game fall flat on it's face? ;) Kidding, kidding. I heard it had some great things about it, but got completely ruined in one of the patches.

Also I started playing my priest again, and I'm having fun. Trying to start doing raids now. Finally got through most of a naxx 10 run, even though I don't really need gear from it thanks to badges/heroics. I'm gonna try and do ulduar 10 here soon.

Also now you can pay $25 for a race change! :O Only $5 less than a full faction change! Somehow that doesn't seem fair.

Well, without levels, your defensive ability is related directly to your armor. Offense is based on what you have learned. I loved this system because a noob could play with a higher level friend and not worry about having him saving his ass all the time because he keeps aggroing mobs from across the map. The noob also isn't left out of PvP. Basically a new guy can jump right into the meat and potatoes of the game without wasting a month leveling to the top level. That is what made me quit WoW so much, the constant leveling. Everyone was saying "At level 60 (70 and then 80) the game is totally different, that is where all the good stuff is.". Why can't the game be good from level 1, you know? Why should I have to wait till top level to experience awesome?

Anyway, level 80 bitches. Praise me.

Image

I tried level 80 PvP and I got roflstomped. I made one paladin use all his cooldowns and CSed his heals so he was basically a sitting duck. I tried to own him but my gear sucked so much that it was like chipping away at stone. I got him down to about 40% health that some warlock or something came with his 50,000 curses (approximately) and killed me. There are also times where crucial frost novas or frost bolts would miss because my hit rating wasn't high enough.

*sigh* Time to start doing some raids. I only have enough honor for one peice of gladiator armor. I was getting about 2k honor per match and I figured if I spent an entire night doing BGs I'll get my gladiator set in no time but then again my gear is so shitty that one raid and a few dungeons will make my character so much better. I don't want to be in a guild or anything, and since changing servers I do not have any friends but that is ok since I just want to go to the battlegrounds and pwn sum noobz. It is frustrating right now because the skills are there, I can juggle 3 players with relative ease, but my gear sucks so much that I can't do any worthwhile damage to any class other than clothies.
