    I learned a new word thanks to it. It's more unusual and has higher impact for me, whereas "drowned" is quite a common language.

    Yes. That's a real thing that happens.

    Style points for managing to go from the OT to disagreeing with made up people in a single sentence though. That's dedication.

    Fair fucks mate. My nan went through a woodchipper so I'm pretty sensitive to that sort of thing. Horses for courses like.

    They're really creative though aren't they? They do manage to get offended by the stuff that you wouldn't even consider to be offensive by any means under any circumstances

    In fairness, I think that's the point. Obviously people will sometimes get offended at shit that they really have no reason to be offended by. That's life - people are wrong sometimes. Sometimes they're right too. The fact that you don't even know that something is a problem is the only reason why a person would have to tell you that it is. If you knew, there wouldn't be a problem because you wouldn't tread on their toes by accident.

    If you tell somebody that you don't like something, would you seriously expect their first reaction to be to tell you that actually you shouldn't mind and they'll do whatever the fuck they like? Probably not, because that's kinda rude. That's why we have words in the language which allow us to express preferences.

    I actually like how it sounds, it´s, somehow, a powerful word.

    It's just that this isn't really a very appealing name as far as I currently see. Imagining people excited over acquiring their "BENTHIC SET" is hard. Dare I say it sounds like a Ben Swolo meme name.


    So I Wowhead search for "Drowned" and sure enough there's not even a set ingame called "Drowned" yet, only a couple of odd items with the name in it.

    and so it means they either have it around the corner and Benthic is a filler, or that somebody really felt Benthic was the best name for a set right now?

    Does Benthic gear excite you? How about compare to PvP Gear, and Raid Sets with their "Valorous" "Savage" "Champion's"


    tldr: Since it's PTR, can we have a rename of the Benthic gear to Drowned? It seems to suit the mood of the deep watery below moreso to the general audience.
    You people aren’t even trying anymore.

    Well, it's the attitude that matters the most, there could be a situation where you just say something random and somebody in the room gets offended by it, they may not actually respond to it, but you can see their facial expression change and it will make you feel kinda guilty, but you both know that it wasn't intentional, that it wasn't meant to be hurtful so you either let it slide or say sorry it's over, but there are people who seriously go out of their way to display their critical thoughts about things that they have nothing to do with, just to play a victim or just to oppose you and they're just funny to me, i feel like their hormones are acting up in a wierd way

    P.S. we might get banned for this convo btw, because somebody will find this offensive ( the irony )... and the fact that we went offtopic

    As a Biologist I happy we got Benthic, makes 100% sense and it's accurate.

    I was taking the piss out of you, mate. There's literally no one on this thread or, realistically, anywhere on the entire internet complaining that the word "drowned" is offensive, just you inventing imaginary "SJW" boogeymen so that you can be permanently angry at someone.

    Learned a new word. Would do again.
    Zandalari theme ftw! PURE GOLD!

    Horde bad, smash, monkey! Who is a good monkey? You are!

    The list of words I've learned from playing video games and Magic: The Gathering over the years is significantly long. I get all this nerd pride when I get to use one of these words in conversation
