"I walked out of the bar, reeking of smoke. The rain was pounding the pavement hard, just like my heart was pounding in my chest. Damn that Barbarra... Seductive and suave, a snake in a woman's skin. One drink turned to two, one word ran into sentences, one touch lead to a kiss. Droplets of water ran down my leather trenchcoat, mingling with sweat."
"I hailed a druid in stag form on the pavement, and he trotted by. "Where to, guv?" he asked, his miss-shapen lips struggling to bleat out the words correctly. "Away from here," I muttered, "and step on it."
Ugh...those blue posts about the tier skipping were painful to read. The players had some legitimate points, and it's disheartening to see a blue dismissing opinions that a large amount of the playerbase, including myself, share (not to mention how poor the arguments he presents are).
An Alliance stag versus a Horde stag...the Alliance stag would win! Why? Bigger horns! XD
Also it would be great if you actually take a look into that 100+ page thread and see how blue deliberetly avoids commenting on lack of consistency with Blizzard "play for challenge" attitude. Example: They bother to give custom exclusive armor sets for transmog in MoP as a incentive but somehow they have problems giving the same incentive right now with turning off the buff?. Unintended shortcoming eh?
Same with Heroic in general. If they want players to "Play for challenge itself" Why Heroic reward better loot then? Isnt challenge itself enough?
Face it... Because of Blizzard's lack of spine WoW is one huge inconsistent mess.
Stag Form looks awesome imo. I can't wait to see what the Moonkin will look like (when they decide to update it).
I'm tired of all the QQ about nerfs to raids.
EDIT: I'm tired about all of the QQ about LFR and LFD and skipping tiers and pretty much every single comment made in all of that.

If what I've said is false, and you are truly after prestige for prestige's sake, then it would stand to reason that knowing that you cleared content first, got better gear first, and obtained achievements first would be enough. But that clearly isn't the case.
“Do not lose time on daily trivialities. Do not dwell on petty detail. For all of these things melt away and drift apart within the obscure traffic of time. Live well and live broadly. You are alive and living now. Now is the envy of all of the dead.” ~ Emily III, World of Tomorrow
that said, i dont care what you think of me. if you think that ideology makes me an "elitest" then hell yes i'm an elitest AND PROUD OF IT! no I never reached endgame in vanilla OR bc. i started right before the release of aq40 and it was just like you said. AND I LIKED IT! when i finally reached the endgame in wrath, i felt robbed of the experiance. EVERYBODY had the gear i had. i had spent so many years looking up to these people that had the time and skills to get the best of the best. then when i was finally able to stand shoulder to shoulder with them, it meant absolutely nothing. i had been handed one of those stupid pointless "you participated" statues for 27th place.
that being said, i don't look down on people that can't accomplish the endgame as lesser gamers. like i said, i played through the difficulty like that and was one of them. as far as i'm concerned, i still am one and would be even if i gave enough of a shit to do the cata endgame. the fact that it is so readily available to me not want to try. so yeah, if i'm an elitest i'm one that doesn't live up to his own standards.
YAY MOP IN SEPTEMBER......when freakin COLLEGE STARTS...GG Blizz

Hail Thor-show thy might. Let thunder roar and lightning strike!
Hurl thy hammer into the fray. And let thine enemies know fear this day!
VICTORY, OR VALHALLA!!!
If PVE trinkets are so damned powerful, they give one race an ability that allows them to use two PVE trinkets without any drawbacks. No one ever said their designers were brilliant.
Shit game, i had hope after beta was anounced for 1 time, but this class and overall changes ; iam done with blizzard and their games.
