    Why is it news that Darkmoon Faire uses CRZ? I have seen it a month or two ago already. My Darkmoon Faire is always empty but I do see occassional player from another realm, so I was always assuming it was on. Might be that it used the same feature as Brawler's Guild so it isn't on if too many from your own realm are there.

    I was thinking. I would love to have a Druid of the Flame Battle pet. It would be a humanoid and llook like one of them from the Cataclysm expansion.
    Abilities:
    1) Charge
    2) Burn
    3) Prowl (While shifting to Fire Cat form.)
    4) Devour (While shifting to Fire Cat Form)
    5) Sting (While shifting to Fire Scorpion form.)
    6) Rampage (While shifting to Fire Scorpion form)

    This could drop from maybe a Firelands Raid boss? Perfect from the Majordomo Staghelm.

    Seriously dumb to change the socket with each revision they make, is it hard to pre-plan a socket that is going to last couple of years, without the user having to go buy a whole new motherboard every 2 years if they want to move the CPU up a notch. Plan a socket where pins can be left un-used if the CPU doesn't need them.

    Now we got what 3 sockets in 5 years, 2011, 1155, 1156, 1150, just retarded and with BGA solders on the horizon, the future for upgrading is indeed bleaker and bleaker with every passing minute.

    You don't see very many people doing a For The Horde/Alliance any more, at least not on my server. Maybe you can allow a companion of the leaders drop, but be unique to account (only 1 per account, for each boss). Might get some more interested in running them again. Just imagine, a mini Thrall!

    Well. Now I'll never get the Darkmoon Rabbit. Thanks Blizz.

    Have to comment on the set-up of the month, been annoying me for a while now..

    A GTX 670 is a unicorn?? not a 780 or titan or 690 or SLI / crossfire?
    Also as a 770 (slightly faster 680) is now released and at $400, why would you be still suggesting a 670?

    And then there is the SSD. 128GB or Intel 335?
    Unicorn should be 256GB 840Pro / vertex4 / Neutron GTX / Inetl 520 in raid 0 (ok possibly not raid for average users) but definitely a larger drive

    And then there is the case suggestions. for about the same price you have awesome cases like the NZXT 630 or Corsar 600t and they are mid range cases

    And a 750W PSU.. wow, really? 550 is plenty for that system and 750 is JUST enough for SLI (with room to OC) AX860 or better should be in unicorn.

    No AIO cooler options?

    Plz ohh plz sort out the advice your giving out.. No high res options, no multi-screens..
    Whether or not you need a new price bracket is up to you but your narwhal is more like the spec's for unicorn (max the game out on a single 1080 / 1200 screen) and unicorn should be just that.. rare, top end, multi-screen / 3d /high res and sli etc.

    Also if you looked properly, Amazon has some of the best prices on some components.. Don't lump everyone in with your assumptions about where people buy parts.
    And if your going to say anything about me buying stuff from amazon, why complain about prices if your not willing to hunt for the cheapest price you can get?

    Sorry to interrupt your HW talk, but here's my pet idea and I hope you'll like it

    It should look like "brain" (magic type) with stats low hp, low power and high speed only.
    The abilities available:

    1) bright idea
    -- hits for X damage, 100% chance to hit
    -- gives 25% haste (team) buff
    -- additional Y damage, if sunny weather

    10) dark thoughts
    -- hits for X damage, 100% chance to hit
    -- deals additional X damage if goes second
    -- additional Y damage, if dark weather



    2) prediction
    -- for next 3 turns, all damage taken is considered as "weak"
    -- always goes first
    -- 3 turns cd

    15) alter events
    -- gives pet double haste buff and +100% damage taken debuff for 2 turns
    -- then swap all pet's buffs & debuffs with opponent's pet ones
    -- 3 turns cd



    4) imitation
    -- opponent's pet next ability is performed (in the same turn) if possible (not stunned, etc.)
    -- always goes second
    -- 3 turns cd

    20) confusion
    -- summons 3 copies of itself
    -- each represents chance to miss (opponent's pet ability target is selected randomly from pet & copies)
    -- if copy takes any damage, it's removed (if no damage was dealt, one copy is removed anyway)
    -- any damage taken by the pet itself will dismiss all copies left (eg. previously poisoned, burning, ..) and deals X damage per copy removed this way
    -- 5 turns cd



    edit: level 20 ability detail not making it so powerful

    I was thinking about Celestial NPC's in game and I have and idea about new Battle Pet.

    Celestial Human - Same model like Algalon the Observer. Also I like Ulduar, so that's why Celestial Human
    Race - Human
    Abilities:
    1. Jab - typical hit
    2. Whirlwind - He can hit really hard in game, so his "little brother" can hit hard like Algalon
    3. Moonfire - He is Guardian of the Titans, so he can know some Magic
    4. Arcane Blast - Algalon's ability do Arcane Damage, his "brother" too
    5. Counterstrike - Very hard attack
    6. Starfall - I think it's a good skill for him, on main encounter Algalon summon stars

    Anyone with limitless budget can go to a store, drop five grand on the table and say "build me the best PC you can for that", but that's beside the point. 95% of PC gamers wont ever game on multiple monitors, so who really cares for pricing on that, if you want to do that, you can easily find out yourself.

    Nobody needs a GeForce Titan either, regarding GPU everything past $350 mark is serious enthusiast material, and is once again not interesting for majority of people who want to build a gaming PC. If you haven't realized by now, those listed builds aren't focused around the who can spend the most money, but get the best bang for your bucks, granted there might be leeway for discussions of what is the best and what not in that price range, but seriously, don't bring a Titan into the discussion when the whole setup he listed costs $1000, exactly the same as the mentioned GPU.

    You know that this is not build the most expensive PC, but mearly a guideline to a powerful gaming PC right? Because if you want a Titan in there, maybe throw in another 4TB of SSDs, that will also bump up the price niceley by about $8.000, but why stop there, just throw in something other that is expensive.

    Also, A dedicated sound card is like completely wasted on again 95% of PC gamers. I played Quake 3 competitively back in the day (CPL, ESL, CBEC etc.), a game that is based on sound and identifying where it's coming from, and I tell you that recent on-board sound cards are more than enough if not great for anything gaming/music/video playback related.

    Pvp - Broken!

    Pve - Broken!

    Game - Broken!!!


    Like this game will last 3 more years until Titan are released??? I don´t think so!!!
    If they finally decided to remake Titan. Why on hell would they do it with less developers than before? Wouldn´t that just take even more time to remake the game then? GJ Blizzard in making Titan another Diablo 3!!! Blizzard´s era is finally over as the best game developer there is. Now they only got 1 good game atm and that´s SC2. How the hell could you be so stupid???

    Yes, because that is the best GPU at that price point. If you want to spend more, you likely already know what you are doing and don't need a list. The 770s are all OOS or cost $480+ on Amazon right now.

    RAID 0 for SSDs is amazing overkill, again if someone really needed it they wouldn't be reading this list. It is common sense that if you want a bigger drive, you can buy one. Many people would benefit from the larger 2-4TB mechanical drives as well, but changing to one requires you to search for a 2-4TB version. It isn't asking too much of someone to think about how much they want to store and buy the right size drive.

    There are a ton of nice cases that could easily fill a list of 30, but I had to pick two.

    If someone wants to add in a top of the line card later, it allows for that. If someone wants to SLI, they don't need this list.

    If someone is overclocking to the limit and they will benefit from the small advantage that gives, they already know what is out there.

    I don't need a new price bracket, because the top end one will max out games at 1080p for the most part. If you want gimmicky 3D or SLI builds, you don't need a list to help you.

    I thought of another cute pet idea so bear with me....

    Ignis's Furnace - Elemental - Drops from Ignis the Furnace Master in Ulduar. It is a little furnace on legs that walks around with you. (Also provides unique ability, able to be used as a camp fire.)

    Abilities::
    1.) Burn - 90% Hit Chance

    Blasts the enemy with fire, dealing 472 Elemental damage.

    2.) Flamethrower - 100% Hit Chance

    Turns the battlefield into a raging inferno, dealing 295 Elemental damage.

    Fire continues to Burn the enemy dealing 98 Elemental damage each round for 2 rounds.

    3.) Conflagrate - 4 Round Cooldown
    95% Hit Chance

    Deals 591 Elemental damage.

    Deals 197 Elemental additional damage if the target is Burning .

    4.) Flame Jets - 90% Hit CHance, 3 Round Cooldown

    Stomps the ground causing geysers of flame to erupt under all enemies. These geysers deal 315 elemental damage.

    5.) Cauterize - 3 Round Cooldown
    Restores 394 health plus half of the last hit taken by the user.

    6.) Hot Pocket - Charges and grabs a random enemy target, tossing them into the caster's slag pot. The target is unable to attack the caster and takes 450 Elemental damage every Round for 2 Rounds. If the target survives, they are imbued with the magical slag, increasing their haste by 20% for 3 seconds. (I know it was called Slag Pot for the boss, but the achievement for it is a much cooler name.)

    anyone catch the contradictory blue posts?

    "Disabling auto follow in Battle Grounds has only hurt the multi boxer.
    The problem is when multi boxers are having fun in PvP, everyone else often is not. (Source)
    The biggest issue is that this change has utterly destroyed a play style that has been accepted for 8 year's!!
    Nevertheless, do you think it was fun for the solo players on the receiving end? (Source)"

    "Blue post says new players get discouraged cuz of gear difference in pvp. But getting one shot in FULL boa by prot warr is OK
    Low level Shield Slam was fixed in 5.3. To be fair, while low level still matters, far more players care about 90 PvP balance. (Source)"

    So different scenarios, but same problem: due to an unbalance somebody is having more fun than the other, but one is wrong and the other is ok. The warrior in full boa is fine if he can 2 or 3 shot any toon, but the multiboxer is not allowed to 2 or 3 shot players through 2+ (upwards of 40) characters he macros together. Both are unpleasant for the player on the losing end, and hella fun for the winner.

    Make up your mind Blizzard.

    On a side note I never thought I'd ever see the day when multiboxing would be discouraged without explicitly making it illegal. $$ and subs talk but apparently not anymore.

    Mini-Malygos

    In light of the news that Blizzard might be doing more Battle pet in wrath, I would base my idea onto that. Thus one of my favorite lore and boss encounters within the game is Malygos in the Eye of Eternity

    Name: Mini Malygos
    Pet type: Dragonkin
    Ability one: Arcane breath. Blasts foe for X amount of arcane damage, dealing 2% more damage each turn for one turn
    Ability two: Arcane shield: Shield Mini Malygos in arcane, reducing damage for one turn by 100%. two turn cool down
    Ability three: Ice Breath: Blast target with a force of arcanic ice for X amount of damage (less than arcane breath) slowing targets speed by 25% for three turns.

    Ability four: Mana bomb: Form a mana bomb that detonates after two turns, dealing X (more than ability one) amount of damage to all active battle pets. Two turn cool down
    Ability five: Dragon roar: Let forth a bellowing roar, silencing two turn attacks and dealing minor damage. Increases damage taken by target by 5% three turn cool down
    Ability five: Boon of the the blue dragon flight: Increases damage done by 25% for two turns. Five turn cool down.

    This is my rough idea for what I would like to see. Of course I dare say ability would be re-used if there indeed was such a battle pet. But hey! It's all a bit of fun, right? Right? WRONG!! Give me a baby MALLY! ;_;
