I thought I'd seen it all in WoW, but last night was the first time in years that I was surprised by something in game. During an LFR run (farming legendary mats) one of the players demanded that we report or kick another player...because he needed a green drop. o.O
Like, this player was vehement about it. We HAD to report or kick this guy because he needed to learn courtesy to other players! He/she threw a massive fit and eventually was typing in all caps because ALL CAPS IS SRS BIZNESS. We had to vote to kick her because she wouldn't let it go. Good effing lord. - Hookuh Tinypants
A green drop...isn't that like...the least good kind of drop? Wouldn't it be more of an issue if you needed a blue or a purple? - Laura
Dang. - Victor Ganata
Someone who cries over green drops may as well be crying over grays. By the time you're in LFR, the only drops you should care about are the ones the system automatically rolls to you. Even the purple trash drops really aren't much to be busting a spleen for. Clearly a grip needed to be gotten. - Hookuh Tinypants
Oh that is very common in the runs that I have done. People screaming NINJA! and wanting to vote kick. I've also seen people vote kick others for THINKING they were someone they actually werent.... - Chris Topher
Ninja is common. Ninja over a green in lfr? No. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

Server issues on raid night, grrr. DYSP!
Hmmm, did it snow on the server? Cuz I might be to blame for that. - Steven Perez
Heather, 30k Camper
Not that Blizzard has ever been easy to deal with, but eliminating help calls is NOT good customer service. Especially when I submit a ticket, get an email conformation, and then my account says it never existed.
20 minute wait for live chat, it's impossible to change my security question (which I've tried to guess like 8 times), and i wasn't refunded nearly the amount of time i was hoping. - Heather, 30k Camper
Victor Ganata
Dinged 85 while almost completely avoiding Cata zones. Yay LFD?
I never really did the dungeons while Cata was current content, but I remember them being absurdly hard. Did Blizz end up nerfing the crap out of them, or did they make all tanks and healers insanely OP? - Victor Ganata
They did nerf several of them, including H-Deadmines. Especially H-Deadmines. LOL Man, I remember spending all my game-time each night only being able to run like two heroics because they were so hard at 85. It would take at least an hour, sometimes two depending on how many times you had to requeue to replace kicked or dropped members. Oof. - Hookuh Tinypants
Victor Ganata
So if Grim Batol is an allusion to Moria, and Blackrock Mountain is an allusion to Erebor (s/dragon/fire elemental/) then I wonder what Ironforge is supposed to allude to?
I suppose it could be (1) the Iron Hills (2) the settlements in the Blue Mountains or (3) Aglarond, where Gimli founded a dwarven colony. - Victor Ganata
Of course, I realize that Blackrock Mountain is also an allusion to Mt. Doom (with Stormwind as Minas Tirith, which only became really apparent to me during Cata when you fly) but I like the Ragnaros/Smaug parallel, too. - Victor Ganata
Hookuh Tinypants
The fact that add-ons exist for managing a specific raid boss is the epitome of lazy raiding...
Stephen Mack
Fuck yeah! Garrosh-10-normal down! Only the third Horde guild on Feathermoon to get him (9th place on our server of all guilds).

The NSA Has Been Spying On World Of Warcraft - TPM http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewir...
Just… LOL. I can't. - Victor Ganata
Well now I can't trust any o' y'all. *sideeye at DYSP guildies* - Hookuh Tinypants
I wonder how it started. "I bet you $50 that I can get the US Government to pay me for playing World of Warcraft." - Tudor Bosman
From a thread on this topic in a different forum: "Imagine who they assign to monitor barrens chat. It's probably how they wash out interns, actually." - Tudor Bosman
I wonder if there is a modern day equivalent to Barrens chat now? I guess there's always the cesspool of Trade. Although I hear that Elwynn Forest gets really freaky on some RP realms. I imagine monitoring Goldshire on Moonguard could be a hazing ritual for an NSA noob. - Victor Ganata
I DID tell all those people that made threats to the President's life in trade chat that they should be careful with what they say >.> - Chris Topher
I do kind of wonder what they're looking for. "LFM Al Qaeda cell, need tank. No, really, need actual tank." "IRL assassination rogue LFG to take out IRL faction leaders. PST if interested." - Victor Ganata
^HAHAHA! - Stephen Mack
Victor Ganata
Well, whaddayaknow. Apparently demo locks really can temporarily tank 5-mans after the blood DK goes splat because he decided to aggro half the dungeon.
Demo locks are OP. - Arlan K.
I think Blizz should just go all the way and add a lock tank spec :D - Victor Ganata
It would help with the tank shortage! - Stephen Mack
Victor Ganata
My phone keeps wanting to autocorrect "desolation" to "Desolace". Maybe I'm playing WoW too much.
Victor Ganata
Oh man, I've forgotten how absurdly fast it is to level with heirlooms. Now that 5.4.2 lets you mail them cross-server, I gained like four levels in about an hour and a half.

Warlords of Draenor: The Dark Portal is the New Glass Ceiling - Apple Cider Mage http://www.applecidermage.com/2013...
This was brought up at either the lore panel or the main panel. Metzen addressed the issues they're facing with going back as far as female characters. Metzen took the blame for it and said they're trying to make sure it happens, but the female characters aren't in the lore from the period of (WC2), and pretty much no lore from WC1, so they're working with a pretty much blank slate. He... more... - Not Me
He basically said, he's a man and when they were building the games at that time they were thinking more about what would be fun for them, and it was a bunch of strong bad-ass dudes. Now he has regrets about that decision. - Not Me
Rodfather
Anybody playing Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn? Which server?
Got some friends on Gilgamesh. I haven't been playing much due to being mentally drained at work. But our Free Company, the Random Collective, is max rank and we've got the exp boost going throughout the weekends if you wanted to take advantage of that. - Arlan K.
Cool. I have a lvl 10 short dude on Gilgamesh. 'Rod Tao' (Yeah, creative). - Rodfather
I'll have someone snatch you up if I'm not on to do so. - Arlan K.

They should just hire him. - Not Me from Bookmarklet
They were so excited about getting a pretty easy question from him this time, and the next guy asks about a continuity issue involving the history and origins of Paladins. - Not Me
Agreed, hire him already. - Stephen Mack
Victor Ganata
So now I have three level 90 paladins. I think I might have a problem. #altoholism
One for each spec! - Stephen Mack
Chris Topher
PVP enrages me to no end. Its not the losing part of it that does it, it's the pure disinterest in working together. Even with EXPLICIT instructions in chat, people will still do whatever the hell they want and bitch and moan when something doesnt work. I guess everyone does indeed believe they are Rambo.
That's why it's best to party up for pvp. Even if it's one or two people more, you and your friends will have more fun and things will be less toxic. - Arlan K.
Trying to get people to work together in a random BG is usually an act of futility. I can only really run about one or two BGs solo now before I start getting pissed off. Grouping up is pretty much the way to go. - Victor Ganata

I have to admit, I didn't even know spriests had AoE until this expansion. Mind Sear is... not impressive.
It's gone through brief periods of time of being incredibly effective, but then gets over-nerfed. They've stated from time to time that they don't want one-button AOE, so they apparently want spriests to multi-dot a lot. - Stephen Mack
Mind Sear comes in handy when I'm questing and want to do a little damage to a group while I pick them off one at a time. But generally it's not useful for any other application. It was far more powerful in the past - in Wrath it was phenomenal! - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I think the big issue they're going to run into with shifting from AoE is that a lot of locks and mages learned to pump out DPS with AoE and not try anything else. (MOAR DOTS) There's going to be a lot of mediocre players once AoE gets stripped. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Rain of Fire definitely feels really nerfed--it just seems like something you have to keep up so you can regenerate Burning Embers faster--and even with the damage buffs to Blizzard, spamming it doesn't seem worth it because you'll be OOM so quickly. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Except that so many still use these in raids. We see it every week and they still do enough DPS to think its worth doing. It's annoying for sure. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I use Mind Sear on trash in raids all the time. I rarely have a use for it on bosses though. Halo is pretty nice though. I have a habit of grabbing agro with it because I hit it just before adds spawn and it gets to them as they appear. Multidotting slaughters my mana though, and that's only if it's worth the time to apply DoTs. - Heather, 30k Camper
Right? Ugh. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

Warlords of Draenor FAQ - Battle.net http://us.battle.net/wow...
This is probably as close as feasible to what I always wanted: an MMO that was simultaneously an RTS - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Does this mean we finally get to see Turalyon and Alleria in-game? :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I just started humming the Stormwind City theme music to myself. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The world PvP zone featuring their level and ilvl balancing tech they use in BGs and challenge modes sounds intriguing. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Getting rid of hit and expertise should be interesting. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
To be replaced by +Cleave and +Movement Speed? I can already hear the QQ on BG Chat :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Lol right? My guildie just said the same thing. :) I wish all the other WoW panels were today. I'd love to hear about the future of stats and talents right now. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Ashran = old school AV? http://wow.joystiq.com/2013... - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Yeah, that's pretty much how it was explained here. Hoping more comes up tomorrow during panels and/or Q&A. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
So stat squish might really happen this xpac? I'm anticipating much panic if it does :D - Victor Ganata
Not that I'm a raider of any sort, but it looks like hardcore 25 man is dead, dead, dead, huh? - Victor Ganata
The new toon models make me want to play my lowbie orc. Or roll a whole bunch of orcs. Or dwarves. (I already have a ton of gnomes :D ) If only I weren't so close to the 50 toon limit. - Victor Ganata
Although I guess with the siege engines, Ashran is more like a more epic persistent version of Wintergrasp (which I really loved at the end of Wrath even though I played protribution and didn't have any PvP gear :D ) - Victor Ganata
Finally, account wide heirlooms! Maybe I'll finally level a hordie to 100 :D - Victor Ganata
I guess they haven't completely figured out how both Outland and old Draenor will be accessed? Like, I read somewhere that they're thinking about making Outland accessible via the CoT whereas old Draenor will be directly accessible through the Dark Portal? - Victor Ganata
Does this mean that old Draenor is now the canonical timeline because of Garrosh mucking around with the time stream? (Like how Rhonin et al f-ing around with War of the Ancients became canon?) And Outland is now just an alternate timeline like the future Dragonblight of Murazond? Bah, I hate thinking about time travel. Just conjugating verbs properly gives me tension headaches. - Victor Ganata
Yeah, that's what it sounds like. I'm hoping it comes up again during open Q&A. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
So we're not actually going back in time? We're going to an alternate Draenor where the Burning Legion never corrupted the orcs so Ner'zhul never blew the whole damn thing up? Like, this is Draenor 41 years after the First War, except the First War never happened? Which causes all sorts of demented causality problems on Azeroth.... This is going to be interesting. :D - Victor Ganata
Well they just answered your question about Turalyon and Alleria. :-/ - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
LOL. Well, maybe next xpac then. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Whoa. The itemization changes are epic. http://i.wow.joystiq.com/2013... - int plate: gone. Seems like the enchanting profession is gonna get nerfed at the AH. Reforging: gone. Meta gems and socket bonuses: gone. There goes JCs income stream :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Heh, so does this mean that if you play a hybrid class, you only need to carry around one set of PvE gear and one set of PvP gear instead of four different sets? So much free bag space! - Victor Ganata from iPhone
That's pretty much what they said. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Chris Topher
That moment where one of your healers has to go after 2 attempts on the first boss......who joins runs when they have to leave so soon into it?
Assholes who don't want to have to put in effort for a run. We have a top DPS who's like that. As soon as we have more than one wipe on a boss, he finds an excuse to leave. One time he just dropped entirely and when he finally logged on the next day, he said his power cable had broken. FFS - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Needless to say, he has stopped getting raid invites. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Victor Ganata
Wait, does this mean that Warlords of Draenor will probably come out around the same time that X-Men: Days of Future Past will come out? Cue all the dumb people who don't understand how time works claiming how Metzen ripped off the movie (and not the animated series or comic), or how the movie ripped off WoW. :D
I am amusing myself by imagining Garrosh as Kate Pryde or Bishop or Wolverine. - Victor Ganata
I am still astounded by all the people who swear to this day that Mists of Pandaria ripped off Kung Fu Panda. - Victor Ganata

RT @wowcynwise Discussion about women in Warcraft mythology is basically saying, hey, could we maybe be as progressive as an Oxford don from the ‘50s? https://twitter.com/wowcynw...
You know you're doing something terribly wrong when JRRT is more feminist than you are. ;) - Victor Ganata
Lol right? Honestly though, I ain't mad. It is what you make of it. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Hookuh Tinypants
Also? Stoked about revamped UBRS.
Hookuh Tinypants
You're all invited to hang in my garrison. :D
I just saw that. Holy crap! - Victor Ganata
Wait, does that mean houses? - Not Me
It means fortresses. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Man, now I have to think. I just don't know if I could do it. The past 2 expansions just kind of sucked as far as enjoyment I got out of them. I don't know if I can get pumped for another let down, even if they're promoting awesomeness. And yeah it looks awesome. The boost to 90, is that a one time thing? I get why, who wants to grind for weeks to see the expansion you just bought, if you're just starting out? But seems like you suck some of the fun out. - Not Me
Yes, one time. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
If it doesn't sound like your thing, don't do it. Since Blizzard fails to live up to your expectations it's probably best to just avoid having a reason to complain. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I've been expecting player housing and was just talking about it with my friend last weekend. This sounds interesting. I don't have the online pass so only going by what I can find on the webs. Can other players visit another player's garrison or is it basically a big version of the Panda-farm? - Arlan K.
Yes, you can invite other players into your garrison. :) - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
That's the issue, they both sounded awesome, I'm sure when I read more about this it's going to be awesome too. And they met expectations to a point. Where they failed was how they made the game simpler and more cookie cutter. The level-capped mid game grind just seemed too monotonous and boring in Cataclysm but even more so Pandaria, because there was no threat and you max PvP was... more... - Not Me
It really does sound like you're not going to like WoD…. Probably best not to waste your money. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Agreed. Myself, I'm looking forward to this and will enjoy the crap out of it. They're making some interesting development choices that will be fun to watch as they're playing out over the course of ten levels, and endgame will be engaging for both PvP and PvE. Really, a game is what you make of it. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Did Blizz say anything about whether or not there's going to be a Patch 5.5 yet? - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Yes, there will be a 5.5 but we don't know exactly if it's going to be the patch that kicks off pre-xpac events (portal goes red, we start with the build-up questing) or something before that. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Usually the pre-patch gets the number of the new expansion, though, right? I guess MoP isn't completely done, and they do need to segue into how Garrosh escapes into the past. The Timeless Isle makes a lot of lore-sense now :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I'm now wondering what the "content for future use" included in the 5.4.1 update is all about. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Nice in regards to inviting others to garrison. Maybe I won't cancel my sub, then. But, unless they release the new char models or the garrison before expac hits, I can still win the bet with my friend that I won't log in until the expac hits. - Arlan K.
Sorry, when I said pre-patch, I meant the last release before an xpac patch. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I'm guessing the garrisons are going to be per-toon? Well, that's one way to cure my altoholism. - Victor Ganata
Arlan K.
I'm not sad I'm missing Blizzcon for the reason of missing all the exciting awesome-ness. I'm sad because I can't be there and get all the 3DS Miis. I want more Miis!
My guildie is sitting next to me collecting Miis as people swarm by us. :) - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

Blizzard trademarks Warlords of Draenor - WoW Insider http://wow.joystiq.com/2013...
The name of the next expansion? A revamp of Outland and/or new Outland zones? Or the name of the next RTS? :D Or something else entirely? I guess we'll find out soon enough at Blizzcon. - Victor Ganata
How sad is it that I keep forgetting that Blizzcon is this weekend? I fly out TOMORROW and I still keep forgetting. - Hookuh Tinypants
Its been widely expected that the next expansion would be the return of the Burning Legion, so I am not really surprised. It will be interesting to see if we get new races/classes though. - Chris Topher
Better than forgetting that you're not going to go. I keep trying to look for my flight confirmation number and wondering why my cousin hasn't been calling me back about hotel rates. - Arlan K.
One of my guildies who has gone every year with us isn't going this year, and keeps forgetting that he's not going. He gets so excited when we're all in Vent talking about it, until someone reminds him he's not going. And then they have to remind me that I am going. LOL We are the special needs guildies, clearly. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
