Oh yeah, WoW.  I remember that game.  That was the one were plate-wearing armored warriors had more mobility and could close range faster than any other class.  fark Blizzard.

the8re: dazed420: characters are server based, so yeah fake.

Came here to say this. It was a total biatch to completely Wowicide all my huntards when I realized my family was falling apart.

Is your name John? This seriously sounds like something that happened to my roommate's best friend.

Bastards lured me in with that 12-month subscription of WoW for a free Diablo 3 bit.  I signed up, now I have TWO games I don't want to play.  Soon, April will come...

syrynxx: There are no characters on that machine.  WoW characters are stored on the WoW server, not the client.


Recoil Therapy: Perhaps if you hadn't devoted so much time to maxing out 14 characters your GF wouldn't feel the need to put your computer behind your car....


Ika7734: And fake post is fake.

WoW was great while I was depressed and underemployed; when I got a real job and subsequently, a real life, it just got in the way. It helped that WoW's terrible transition to suckitude encouraged me kick it.

Once I got Kingslayer, I got bored.  I didn't have much hope with the rise of micro-transactions and general dickery of Activision of the game improving.   From what I can tell I left at the ideal time.

I had a server full of 85s. I got into the beta for Mists, played for a couple of days, and shut down my account. There was nothing particularly bad about Mists, but I just couldn't being myself to start grinding again.

If anything, I would love a never-ending Assassin's Creed game. Of course, if I played that for as long as I did WoW, I might be burned out on that as well.

Girion47: Pinko_Commie: Girion47: qorkfiend: Not impressed. Are we talking maxed-out gearwise, or just level? If it's just level, any character beyond your first or second should take two to three weeks, max, to max. Maybe a bit more if you're starting fresh with a new faction or server.

In my day, getting to level 60 as a Resto Druid was quite a feat.

/Was in WoW b4 Tree form
//has been clean for 2 years, 5 months, 20 days

Pfft, try it as a Feral in that day and age.

I was a masochist, not suicidal.

I went Feral during BC, pre-nerf I was pushing 35K health in Kara.   It was amazing to be a valued member of a raid for once.


I was a MC/BWL raiding feral pre-BC. o_0

I remember the fights over what I could spend my DKP on.

No you can't bid on healing items as its not your spec
No you can't big on +AGI leather as hunters want it
No you can't bid on +STR leather as rogues want it (though it could have been the other way round for AGI/STR)
No AGI staffs, they be for hunters.
No 1h STR maces, the Fury Warriors have them.

Though the day I turned up to a raid in Moonkin spec without telling them was amusing.

Pre-nerf BC were some of my favorite WoW moments. Leveling, everyone wanted a Feral in their group, doing speed runs where we were chain pulling 3 or 4 groups of mobs and tanking them with swipe spam.

Doing stuff like rezzing healers while main tanking bosses in SSC (+AGI trinkets FTW giving 100%+ dodge) having 75% damage reduction through armour.

Then it all because serious business :-(  I was ending up spending a minimum of 6 hours a night preparing for raids and raiding, after a full day at work.  Fark that, a second job I don't get paid for.  I realised it was time to quit it.

theurge14: That was the one were plate-wearing armored warriors had more mobility and could close range faster than any other class.


Pfft.

When I started playing my warlock I could endlessly fear every other class on a battlefield team while running around laughing maliciously and dotting their scurrying soon-to-be corpses up with the inevitability of doom. Rare was the day when a warlock wasn't the top of a BG leaderboard.

By the time I quit playing with the pre-Cataclysm content patch (4.0.1) my character was a helpless cloth-wearing nobody who would be lucky to successfully keep fear on another player for 2 full seconds while desperately fleeing the CC-immune warrior who was about to leap in and smash me in the face with a series of stuns that wouldn't end until 2/3 of my lifebar was gone and my CC trinket was burned..... the last 1/3 of my life disappearing of course because 90% of all spells at that point in the game seemed to either get reflected, blocked or absorbed...

Although it was nice when we got the little portal trick so that it became slightly possible to maybe be able to have a tiny little bit of a chance against another class that wasn't a mage (because fark those guys... rolling mage back then meant you just wanted to see how badly you could get wrecked in PvP).

Yea. Blizzard's pretty terrible at the whole class balance thing. I haven't played in going on 2 years now but I doubt it's much different.

/ it was also kind of funny the day of the 4.0.1 patch when they didn't balance Searing Pain right to take into account that the health pools hadn't increased yet and you could two-shot almost anybody else in PvP...

I started PvPing that time.  Those were the days in AV when your team would go "We need Iceblood Tower recapped", "How many do they have in there?", "Just a warlock", "fark it, head north."

By the time I quit playing with the pre-Cataclysm content patch (4.0.1) my character was a helpless cloth-wearing nobody who would be lucky to successfully keep fear on another player for 2 full seconds while desperately fleeing the CC-immune warrior who was about to leap in and smash me in the face with a series of stuns that wouldn't end until 2/3 of my lifebar was gone and my CC trinket was burned..... the last 1/3 of my life disappearing of course because 90% of all spells at that point in the game seemed to either get reflected, blocked or absorbed...

It hasn't changed since then.  I quit during Cata, after a year off I played Mists very briefly and retired for good (I swear).  They might as well remove clothies from the game because it's all about DKs paladins and warriors and has been for several years now.

Oh, and speaking of spell reflection, I used to refuse to run Halls of Reflection with my guild when I was on my mage for that reason.  We started calling it Halls of Spell Reflection.  Cata had way too many fights where casters just sat there with their thumbs up their ass with nothing to do.  At least on your warlock you had good instants, for mages there's no joy like standing still and eating damage while 2+ second casts getting reflected back at you over and over.  Adding some mobile casts in Mists was a lame attempt at addressing this.

Although it was nice when we got the little portal trick so that it became slightly possible to maybe be able to have a tiny little bit of a chance against another class that wasn't a mage (because fark those guys... rolling mage back then meant you just wanted to see how badly you could get wrecked in PvP).

When I played my mage I was always amazed at how many people swore we were OP when there wasn't a class in the game that wasn't a mage counterclass.  Outranged by hunters, no good instants, have to stand and cast, all melee classes run faster and can close range easily, blink glitches on a pebble on the ground yet rogues can blink up on top of towers, unique mage abilities like poly were given to shamans with the added bonus for shamans that hex it doesn't heal the target, mage's oh shiat button ice block means you can't move and can't cast yet paladins can bubble then run away and heal, or DKs can pop their anti magic shield and continue to fight, druids can pop on a HoT and go to bear form and keep fighting, rogues can pop evasion and recuperate, every other class in the game can heal themselves except mages.  All these things came to mind when people biatch about frost mages being unstoppable.  My warrior was my very first toon in BC but I parked him during Lich King.  He became my new main during Mists and I couldn't get over how faceroll he was at that point.

Yea. Blizzard's pretty terrible at the whole class balance thing. I haven't played in going on 2 years now but I doubt it's much different.

After playing the game as long as I did it became apparent after time that Blizzard has no intentions whatsoever to balance the game, they profit more from the imbalances.  Exhibit A, look at how many people came back during Lich King to faceroll with the new DK class.  Like I said, fark Blizz.

theurge14: [lots of complaining about pvp balance]

You do realize what the second "M" in MMO stands for, right?  It sounds like the problem both of you are having is that you're trying to play the game solo.  A proper PvP squad will have heavies running interference for the casters, at which point the ranged classes become the most powerful elements of the battle.  WoW's Mages are a very good example of this, extremely high damage output but very easy to lock down.  Stick a warrior or rogue on "keep the people with the lockdown away from the mage" duty and they'll mow down the entire field in short order, leave them alone in their one-ply armor and even something with relatively tame damage output would have their lunch just as fast.

If the developers balanced the game based around what a single player could do with no backup, it'd kind of defeat the purpose of the game and you might as well play Skyrim or something.

1. Character data is stored on the servers, not locally.

2. Individual settings, such as modifications to the HUD, ARE stored locally.

3. Freaky - I used to live a few blocks away from the given address. If I still lived there and the listing wasn't fake, I could have easily 'helped'.

That thinking doesn't hold up in WoW.  In PVP your team is pretty much just people you don't kill, there isn't really an element of team-work, you just dole out as much damage as possible and hope that your team does more than the other team in the general area of the objectives.

WoW hasn't been that way for a long time.  Over the years they've gone from pures to hybrids.  Once upon a time you had a role such as damage, or CC, or healing, or flag carrying... now in Blizzard's continuing stupidity they've gradually made all the classes more and more hybrids.  When you have a pure damage class struggling in blue and purples to out-DPS a hybrid class in greens then you have a broken game.

Mages were so strong back in the day and I was always ready to prove it by taking off my gear and duelling anybody who wanted a piece. The only class that could beat a mage was warlocks, and that match-up was so easy the warlock just had to face roll. I was in a guild that was clearing Molten Core but I was still wearing blues from Marudon because crit was so strong. Ignite would never drop off if you kept critting, and the damage would keep stacking.

I remember wiping whole groups staging for runs in Blackrock Mountain. You polymorph the dispeller, (full polymorph was 15 seconds no diminishing returns) Counterspell the healer and POM Pyro one shot whomever you wanted, then double scorch/fireblast kill each person until the whole group was dead.

They nerfed polymorph and ignite when BWL got released. But at the same time they made mana shield OP so it absorbed both physical and spell damage. All you had to do was stack spell damage and health and have the PvP set bonus, spam mana shield and use rank 1 frostbolt since it still scaled 100% from spell damage..

Then when AQ40 got released mage itemization took a huge hit The only gear worth PvPing in dropped from C'thun and you only had a month or two to wear it before every scrub guild was getting gear almost as good from the easy bosses in Naxx.

Mages were still strong in PvP during/after Naxx, but no longer dominated everyone. We could finally beat warlocks but Discipline priests could beat us handily. Fury Warriors with trinket, spidersilk sash and landing a mace stun could beat us. Enhancement shaman beat mages easily and dagger rogues could beat us if they get the openiing sap.

Clearly, I chose the right path of play in WoW. It seems the gear-chasers and PVP'ers and raiders get bored or aggravated very easily and quit. I have played since pre-BC (six years now), have 65 toons, 90s and below (none below 35), none of them parked, and play strictly by myself.

No guild drama, no socializing, just running about with whatever toon I please at the time, working on my crafting, no raiding, no dungeons, just picking, mining, skinning, going to the fair, collecting pets and mounts, pet battling (not against other players, just pets in the field to collect them), enjoying the scenery, flying around, just generally having fun.

Never have to think about getting raid gear, getting farked over on gear in a raid, dealing with asshole guild leaders (I'm only in my own bank guilds, some of which I've gotten to level 14 all on my own). No raid times to schedule for, I play when I feel like it and don't play when I don't feel like it.

It's basically a hobby. Instead of writing, picking up a book, or doing my needlework, I occasionally fire up WoW. It's all very peaceful and relaxing and then I turn it off.

I'll take a not-serious, fun hobby over something I end up rage-quitting any day.

GW2 has been fun as methadone, as you can drop 5 hours or 5 minutes and still feel like you accomplished something.

stratagos: Shenanigans. Anyone who has 14 maxed WoW characters is incapable of getting a girlfriend


Ive got two friends who have 9-10 maxed characters and both have good looking wives.  One has kids.  It can happen.  Also note that they were playing WoW before they met their wives, so the wives knew what was up going in.  The one with kids is also a regular raider.

IronJelly: Anyway, it's a profession I know a touch about.  If you'll sleep better at night thinking this sort of thing can't happen over Craigslist, be my guest.


I won't sleep any better or worse for it. It's not that I don't think it's possible. It's that I find it unlikely. Does my belief affect the veracity of your claim? Of course not. I'm just stating my views and implying the reasons.

silvervial: Clearly, I chose the right path of play in WoW. It seems the gear-chasers and PVP'ers and raiders get bored or aggravated very easily and quit. I have played since pre-BC (six years now), have 65 toons, 90s and below (none below 35), none of them parked, and play strictly by myself.

No guild drama, no socializing, just running about with whatever toon I please at the time, working on my crafting, no raiding, no dungeons, just picking, mining, skinning, going to the fair, collecting pets and mounts, pet battling (not against other players, just pets in the field to collect them), enjoying the scenery, flying around, just generally having fun.

Never have to think about getting raid gear, getting farked over on gear in a raid, dealing with asshole guild leaders (I'm only in my own bank guilds, some of which I've gotten to level 14 all on my own). No raid times to schedule for, I play when I feel like it and don't play when I don't feel like it.

It's basically a hobby. Instead of writing, picking up a book, or doing my needlework, I occasionally fire up WoW. It's all very peaceful and relaxing and then I turn it off.

I'll take a not-serious, fun hobby over something I end up rage-quitting any day.


That's pretty much where I'm at with WOW these days. I just don't raid and I'm much, much happier. I have toons across different servers  but my main stable is on Stormscale. All 11 classes to 90 with 5 being totally MOP rep ground. Lowest ilevel 450 highest 485. I like doing the dailies, fishing, making my own food, crafting gear for all the rest of my toons. Hop on a toon run a heroic dungeon and/or a scenario, do the Farmville thing in Halfhill, holiday stuff, Darkmoon Faire, whatever. It's nice to literally be able to farm chanting mats, ores, cloth or motes as well as regular food for banquets and the like. With the valor cap 150% bonus and the commendations from the various rep groups it's easy to get gear that in previous incarnations of the game could only be gotten by hardcore raiders. despite the many grumbles to the contrary ITT I honestly believe Blizz finally got the balance part of the equation right. Also the storyline questing from 85 to 90 is pretty cool unlike in Cata where it as too long and too similar. Li Li rawks.

If you think that CL ad was weird, take a look at this one I just found:

Brian - m4m - 30 (Here)Come back. C. Cggfddfffffdfdfddddrred. Hyhhgggggvv. Haughty. Hugh. Uuuhuuujkv. Joint uhhgfgfggggggggggg h hugtyyggg hu

Is he trying to find a guy to blow or is he trying to summon Cthulu?

I dug out two ancient Windows 95 laptops yesterday. Man did they have terrible displays.

I read your whole post. It's an interesting experience, knowing what the letters and even most of the words you're using are, but not understanding a farking thing you said. I was thinking about giving WoW another shot, but now it seems like too much work to learn all the slang.

Well... until you get to Orr where you have to spend 30 minutes fighting a stupid battle with a risen Priest for a .00000000000001% chance at a drop that isn't total trash.
