Re: Ignoring ppl only because their names offend you.

I rarely notice other players' names in PUG. I usually look at their symbol like Tank, Healer or DPS, and sometimes their health bar, than their names. Things often happen too fast for me to notice their names but I take note of what people say in chat. That's when I "ignore" people.

Re: Wolves as pets

I'm sorry to say this but wolves aren't meant to be pets, the same way tigers and bears are not meant to be pets. Making a wolf-dog hybrid a pet isn't a good idea either. Dogs have been bred to become sociable with humans, adding wolf into the mixture will just make the resulting hybrid more wolf-li...

Re: Anyone good at writing poems? D:

What kind of poem are you planning to write? Is it free-form or structured? Many songs, even rap, are actually free-form or structured poems set to music. Shakespeare wrote many of his plays in a kind of poetic stylistic meter. Japanese haiku is a kind of structured poem. Will your poem be a story o...

Re: FW: What's next for World of Warcraft

Whoa! Yahoo! Gaming News? I never knew they cared.

I love the dungeon maps. Now I will only get lost half the time. BTW, I just did Sunken Temple last week and it has been simplified, thank the Earthmother!

Re: If you could hang out with...

I can't really hang out with any of my characters as they are really avatars of my own self impressed into the Warcraft universe. It's like hanging out with your bathroom mirror. :-/

Personally, I'd love to hang out IRL with the Petopia folks. :hug:

The question is how. Other than that, I think they have been harvesting WoW fansite forums for e-mails. I'...

Re: Specs to play WoW at Ultra with minimal lag?

That link below sends you to the January 2011 reviews. At the end of the reviews is the hierarchy chart that you can use to compare the cards, so that you can see which Nvidia card is equivalent to which Ati card, as well as equivalences of older product lines with the new ones. I think my 4870 card...

Re: Specs to play WoW at Ultra with minimal lag?

My PC has a 512MB 4870 video card and it pretty much plays ok at ultra, before Cataclysm anyway. Nowadays, I put it at " good high ". For some reason, the action will just "jerk" while you turn or if you're riding fast. Get something better than that and you'll be fine. I'll insert a link later to T...

Re: Crappy Groups

Weeelll, it wasn't a bad group but definitely the ending leaves a lot to be desired. I was healer on a Wailing Caverns PUG and we killed all the Serpent Lords and the giant shambler and that thunder lizard, then our tank just says kthnxbai just as we started the awakening quest. The remaining member...

Re: Male playing female ?????? :D

For me, it's absolutely random at first, when I enter a new realm. Later on when I start having more alts, I have this obsessive-compulsive thing about "balancing" the sexes and make my next alt out of the fewer gender. Beats me why, I don't think about it at all. However, each time an alt is made, ...

Re: Blizzard learns nothing at all from Dalaran

Trying to get into RFC from Ogrimmar is a pain. I haven't tried using the PUG yet but I think getting into RFC using PUG shouldn't be a problem.
