PvP
Another reminder that I make no announcements & answer no questions about WoW on twitter. Be wary of malicious fake accounts trolling you. (holinka)

been doing alot of BGs lately and I gotta say Horde has majorly bought into a defeatist "groupthink". They don't even try anymore.
The groupthink problem is a tremendous challenge (holinka)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

Low skill ceiling. There wasn't a way to really get better by playing more, which was always going to keep their dps down. (OccupyGStreet)

PvE
everyone thinks sun well wasn't planned and was a band-aid. Can you confirm it was part of the original BC plans or not?
I think it was added when LK ended up taking longer. I may be wrong. I don't trust my memory on that. (OccupyGStreet)



World Firsts Timeline
Manaflask released a nice feature that shows off the history of world firsts, with interviews and other articles about older raids.

    If you look at the timelime of WF's you would almost think that the game got a nose dive to mega mega easyness starting at MoP.

    The moose shop mount can fly but you can't fly in the newest content. Greedy bastards!

    You deserve nothing. Your reward is a faster queue. Want the tank/heal rewards then play a useful spec/class.

    In previous years, Virtual Ticket owners always got the pet.

    Yeah. It was even a seemingly more integrated part of the story than BT was. T6.5 gear felt a bit slapped on but the lore would have been shot through with a cannon if all of what happened at the Sunwell didn't actually happen. Ruby Sanctum was a filler bridge raid, no way Sunwell was.

    If the Sunwell and the isle + magister's terrace was a bandaid then holy shit did the ball drop on Ruby sanctum..

    you shouldn't have an opinion if you voice it like that. reported.
    on topic i think the rewards are extremely too high. Ok i can get they want to reward those specs but for the love of god, way to ditch 90% of playerbase.

    Getting those rewards is as easy as relogging to an alt.

    Seeing how we are playing the World of Altcraft since forever, and hearing how everyone is bragging how they are "making 50k golds per weak on my 10 alts without leaving the garrison lol" - I don't see this as a problem for anyone.

    No, they just stopped releasing straight up broken content. All the way up to Ulduar(that's the last zone I remember with a boss that was flat out broken and unkillable at release) they pretty regularly released bosses that could not be killed.

    That is one stupid statement. Pretty sure my guild wouldn't be as far as it is in HFC without the dps. Also, quit making yourself look like a complete jackass by elevating yourself over others.

    I'll guess $100

    Sure there is a lot of "value" in the bag (I've been to Blizzcon, I live in SoCal,) but if you see all of the things that go into a blizzcon (outside of the vendors that pay to have a booth inside, and then food vendors outside who charge 10 bucks for a chicken sammich i used to eat in public elementary school) there is no way I would want 1/3 of my ticket's cost to be represented by some junk.

    That being said, the blizzard store at the'con had many items and they aren't cheap (not discounted from regular price, which they should be since you paid to get in and had to smell all of the fart clouds.)

    Virtual Ticket is off here, for me. It's being sold already?

    One was a bandaid the other was a sloppy plague-infested bandaid.

    Your reward is Tanks and Healers dealing with yours and other DPS's shit.

    You're Welcome.
