too much factions recently... have they gone mad? srsly....
What a lovely story by great story creators. Really loved it.
lol so sick of hearing people whine on how to gain rep with things honestly i would love for blizz to put a middle finger up to the whiners and be like heres a rep that you can only get exalted with by doing a daily everyday for a year no other way just 1 daily that gives you 100 rep each day that way its easy to do but you have to stick with it but noo most people would complain thats too long well hmm lets make it too where you dont have to ever do rep your automatically exalted with everything once you hit 90 then the people be complaining bout well i had to work for it so wat if you were proud that you had to work for it why complain cause others dont. WoW will always be about the hardcore vs the none hardcore point blank dot com if you dont like the way WoW is running things get a required education and apply for them thats all im saying stop complaining bout every little thing seriously cause you guys are the ones that make this game less enjoyable not the devs they just try and please everyone but they cant cause its always OMG I DIDNT WANT THAT I WANTED IT MY WAY THIS ISNT BK BETCHES YOU CANT HAVE IT YOUR WAY people that whine about everything just irritate me and im sure have the world tbh if you that upset and butt hurt then you wouldnt be here you would be getting the education required then apply to work for them..
If you have a better vision on how to change the game that is truly visionary and game changing... stop crying and apply.http://us.blizzard.com/en-us//end
So much premature certainty on how content that hasn't been released yet is going to pan out. I've enjoyed the vast majority of work that Blizzard has put out, some admittedly more than others so I'm infuriatingly optimistic this will interesting. Give it a few days first and then decide.
I guess I am one of the few that liked dailies (not to many though). Isle of thunder for me was pretty good (atleast compared to Golden Lotus). The solution Blizzard came up with in 5.3 (weekly quest didnt work for me) and the mess they are making in 5.4 are much worse IMO. Now their even not adding new Valor gear in 5.4 (I guess so ppl dont need to farm dailies anymore for Valor). I guess they just want to reduce subcribtions even more.
Finally another Elemental Plateau & Isle of Quel'Danas to grief.---A preposition is a word one should never end a sentence with.
Seriously, that dragon is very expensive.Along with the goat from that Uncle, at this rate, I would never be a rich guy in WoW.
Brilliant! CRZ + killing millions of mob --> millions of people killing the same mob. Or... how Blizzard makes resources scarcer so there is nothing you can do without waiting (=more subscription fees)
More people mean a faster respawn.
I have a dream. That dream is a form of daily quests that actually move forward daily (or weekly, if that's too much). "Oh hi! You want rep with us? Kill a dozen of these guys, then do these 4 or 5 quests. You're done for now. Tomorrow (or later, if that's too soon) this other guy will send you to do something *ELSE* entirely, and you'll never have to do these 5 quests again. And look! It actually advances the story line."You know, some kind of immediate quest progression (not necessarily rep), rather than repetitive stuff over and over until you get higher rep and the bonus of doing 5 *new* quests over and over and over again.Frankly after sending 2 characters through the Golden Lotus grind, I was MORE than HAPPY to get my next character's rep by occasionally growing white turnips.Basically, I was very happy with the original Shado-Pan and Klaxxi, because you could spend a day or two just doing their normal zone-wide quest tree and get to honored, or whatever. Just do something like that and add in a time-delay element, if the road to exalted seems way too fast.
I hope Timeless Isle will be interesting enough to keep me doing stuff to get timeless coins...
Quick question, the screenshot with the nightelve with the spectral porcupine, wich class/set is that? looks cool but can't find it.
