    Transmogrify From Bank and VS, VoidTransmog Addon, Blue Tweets, Setup of the Month

    Whimsyshire Also to Benefit From Density Changes, Idea For the Treasure Goblin Alert, Community Commentary: Public Enemy #1, Tokio's Tri-Gen Palm Monk

    Patch 5.3 - Transmogrify From Bank and Void Storage
    Patch 5.3 adds the ability to transmogrify to items that are located in your bank or Void Storage without having them in your bags! The last update we got on Void Storage space was a no to more slots.



    Addon - VoidTransmog
    The ability to transmogrify from your Void Storage is already live, but not built in to the default UI. The VoidTransmog addon allows you to transmogrify to anything currently in your Void Storage.

    You can open the Void Storage window when at a transmogrification NPC by pressing the Void button on the transmogrify window, then selecting an item from Void Storage and applying it to the correct slot. The items don't appear in the normal flyout selection menu, so you must select the item and then slot.



    Blue Tweets

    We would like too, yes. We just don't want to splash credit to the whole raid. (Source)
    This isn't rocket science. Group credit applies only to group even while in raid. Problem solved! Why so hard to understand?
    1) We'd like for groups in raids to go away. 2) Easy to understand and easy to implement are not the same. (Source)

    So does this mean we can expect 2x10^10 dailies in every expansion from now on? and have those dailies gate everything?
    Have you played 5.2? (Source)
    But why is every major patch "New dailies hub and..." but no dungeons. Seems like lack of creativity.
    Production-wise, dungeons don't compete with quests or scenarios. Dungeons compete with raids. (Source)

    In vanilla, questing was what you did sub-level cap. Raiding level cap. Completely different now. Better? Unsure
    In vanilla, you did questing. Then a tiny percentage of players also did raiding. Now most player raid (at least LFR). (Source)
    Doesn't stop repetitive content from being repetitive.
    I agree. All content gets repetitive. It's impossible to design content faster than players can consume it. Hence, repetition. (Source)

    can we have some more uses for Lesser Charms? I think I have approximately a zillion of them.
    The use is intended to be that you can take a vacation on dailies if you so choose. (Source)

    Misc
    Essentially, we want WoW to feel more like fine dining and less like fast food. Please don’t take this simple analogy to ridiculous lengths. (Source)
    What about aiming to be a food truck? High end trucks can be a great mixture of convenience, taste, and atmosphere.
    Love them, but they aren't that convenient. Here in OC the lines are always long. (Source)

    But sometimes, you don't have time for fine dining. you want a quick bite so you can do more important stuff afterwards.
    And you can play WoW in very small chunks. You just can't achieve every reward in small chunks. (Source)

    the busy working person rarely has time for a fine dining meal though. Perhaps allow that person the ability to succeed
    We try to solve that by letting you accomplish something even in very small chunks. You just can't accomplish everything then. (Source)

    soooooo are we getting giant talent trees again since this new talent system is like fast food
    I'd argue the opposite. The older trees had a lot of empty calories. The newer ones are like tapas - small with depth. (Source)

    Fine dining is more about the experience. You spend a little time there. You soak it in. (Source)
    In the case of alts though (re flightpaths) the same great meal gets boring and bland after having it over and over again.
    I agree, but I'll refer to my comments last week: if your alt is so caught up that you don't need to play it, what's the point? (Source)

    How about making wow more like an amusement park, where there's a little bit of everything & you CHOOSE what you want to do?
    In WoW, players tend to just pick whatever has the shortest line, not what is the most fun (and then get grumpy about that fact). (Source)

    Don't let people's hate over certain features bother you too much. No one is holding a gun to their head and making them play.
    It doesn't bother us. We just like to understand the feedback and in turn try and explain a bit why things were designed. (Source)
    We'll support playing the game almost any way you want. We won't guarantee that your preferred way is the most efficient way though. (Source)

    Why are hotfixes often implemented before being announced seems like it would confuse players
    Getting a hotfix applied takes a lot of people. Making an announcement takes a lot of different people (in different time zones). (Source)
    Sometimes we'd rather get the fix out ASAP even if the message lags behind. Not ideal though. (Source)

    wondering, what would you say are the top 2-3 changes to the SDLC that have led to increased patch delivery?
    Better planning. More realistic schedules. More people (it's hard to hire enough good folks, but we're getting there.) (Source)

    I think "overly literal" is the better way to describe "too rational", imo.
    Perhaps. It's this strange perception that if we get caught in a gotcha that we'll be forced to make a change. (Source)

    What mistakes? Mists has been a blast. My only complaint is I don't have time to do everything.
    Here are a few at launch: G Lotus felt too mandatory. Progression / rewards at 90 were not clear. PvP balance needed much work. (Source)

    Computers - Setup of the Month (by chaud)
    Each month or every 2 months, depending on the hardware evolutions, the lovely chaud will work on a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

    This month
    The current SSD prices seem to have bottomed out for now, with almost all SSDs under $1 per gigabyte when on sale. No new CPUs, GPUs, or SSDs worth waiting for are expected before late in the second quarter this year. RAM prices have been increasing for the past few months, so if you were thinking about adding RAM anytime soon, now is the time.

    Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or something that is similarly multithreaded, you do not need the 3770K and should spend that money elsewhere.

    Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

    Don't hesitate to post any feedback in the comments of that news post, and don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions! If you are interested in Folding@home, take a look in our team's thread.

    I love how I actually mailed Blizzard and suggested that you should be able to do this. Seems like they might actually have looked at it? WOW. I did also suggest that it should be cross character though, but it's a start!

    Everything takes time to implement and sometimes, this production time is needed elsewhere... They can't just snap their fingers and have implemented everything they want...

    They wanted us to have a place to sink all the money we get from dailies.

    Of course I understand that everything takes time. I could be wrong but wasnt transmog and void bank introduced at the same time? Seems only logical to me then to have this option from the start. I actually at first (when they introduced these things) that we were able to do so :P

    Why do we use "Puppy and Dolphin, Narwhal and Unicorn", and not just Tier 1, Tier 2,. or even Common,. Uncommon, Epic, Legendary?
    It would be much easier for most wow players to relate to these PC setups.

    Personally I don't see "unicorn" as a big epic gaming rig,.. rather a gay white horse with a carrot on it's head.
    Surely we could come up with a better name for these PC setups as a community?

    Void Storage has a purpose!? IMPOSSIBLE! BLASHPEMY!

    Yeeehawww! The change to transmogrification is amazing! Void storage will finally be useful.

    Q: "can we have some more uses for Lesser Charms? I think I have approximately a zillion of them."
    A: "The use is intended to be that you can take a vacation on dailies if you so choose.

    Hate to be so critical, but the fact that he says take a vacation from doing dailies seems to imply that dailies are in fact a chore/job, otherwise we wouldn't need/want to take a vacation in the first place. Sorry I'm just very pessimistic when it comes to the dailies.....I rode the Daily Train for a while until I just got fed up with doing them. Last time I ever looked forward to dailies and really had a lot of fun was back in BC with the Isle of Quel'Danas...

    Amazing transmog change, I love it.
