This morning after the reboot, there were no NPCs in the Eastern Kingdoms.  None of us Alliance could get to Stormwind, and those who were there reported no NPCs or mailboxes.  Someone said they could ride the boat from Darny and indeed it worked.  Then I got an idea.

I grabbed my Troll, flew to Darny and hopped the boat.  No guards.  I took the throne.  My Troll wins the World of Warcraft.

Patch 6.0.2

11 Oct 2014

Quest giver: rufushonkeriv in worldofwarcraft
Description
Patch 6.0.2 drops on Tuesday.

Patch notes here.

A few things to know if you don't want to read the patch notes (these are not comprehensive):

  • Bagspace fixes: Reagent tab in bank, new voidspace tab, quest items no longer kept in bags, toybox for fun stuff, heirlooms tab

  • Squish: Numbers are being squished from the millions needed now.

  • No more guild leveling: all guilds will essentially be level 25.  (Hooray for the return of casual guilds!)

  • New character models: no worries - if you don't like the new models you can opt to keep your old model!

  • The Iron Horde Invasion: Phased Blasted Lands, quests to do, and newly revamped UBRS with Warlords gear drops!

My first Horde 90.

8 Oct 2014
6:56am
Quest giver: rufushonkeriv in worldofwarcraft
Description
I created my first Horde 90, after 8 years of playing this game on and off - first Horde to level cap.

I was planning on using my boost for Horde anyway. After months of consideration I realized I didn't want to play a dwarf or a Draenei so I went Troll shammy. To get the profession boost I leveled "Planck" (After Max Planck) to 60 first.

My backstory (I have back-stories for all my main toons) so far is just that Planck, not being a fan of Garrosh, got "Sent to Alaska" Blasted Lands, Drealmaul Keep, where little happens. One day, on duty upon the battlements, he looked out and saw the Iron Horde appraoching. He turned to the guard next to him and said "Hey, mon - dose orcs don' look like our orcs..."

Looking forward to 6.0.2 so I can figure out more of his story in the invasion.

celticdragonfly was dpsing in LFR, singing "I am I, Don Quixote, The lord of La Mancha" then suddenly burst out "Why do I have the aggro?"

"The aggro is your destiny," I said.

(Let's face it. Don Quixote would be a tank. He'd suck at it, but he'd tank.)

Latency issues

25 Sep 2014
12:11am
Quest giver: kniazhna in worldofwarcraft
Description
Hi! Is this community even alive anymore? I'm having some weird latency issues, wondering if anyone can shed some light.

I've recently gotten a new computer: custom built for WoW as my old one had its issues with the game. Everything's been going well, except the past few days the latency on it has gone through the roof. It averages anywhere between 2-4k ms, but today it hit as high as 13k ms. Really not fun playing that slow. Plus, I occasionally see messages of being disconnected from battle.net and connected back to it. I asked guildmates: nobody has the issue. I hop on my old machine sitting right next to it, and the latency is just a few dozen ms: unnoticeable, except for whatever issues it has with the game aside from it. No disconnects whatsoever, just low framerate, but this is one of the issues I've had on it.

What might it be? I'd think it's the machine, but it was rolling smooth before, plus this battle.net dc is making me question if it is the machine after all. Then again, the old machine doesn't have the problem, nor do I get dc'd from battle.net there. We tested the network connection, and both machines check out fine.

Tia.

Just an update....

Quest giver: rufushonkeriv in worldofwarcraft
Description
*Echoing footsteps*  ...Man, this place is quieter than Feralas.  Also the main page's artwork is broken.  Maybe a mod could take us back to a simpler format.

It's maintenance day, not that it matters anymore here.  It's Caturday!

For those of you still on the feed, if you're playing WoW or not playing WoW and just curious, a quick update...

  • The Warlords of Draenor Cinematic came out last month:



  • Patch 6.0.2 drops sometime in October.  It's on the public test realm now.  We're getting new character models.

  • Warlords of Draenor, taking us to an alternate universe Outland where the orcs didn't drink the blood (see the cinematic), drops on November 13.

  • WoW's 10th anniversary will be celebrated in November with an up-to-date Molten Core raid and a new battleground - the Battle for Southshore.

OH!  Big deal for those of you who haven't played for a very long while:

  • If you have not played a character since November 13, 2008, their character's names are going to be released as of the dropping of patch 6.0.2.  If you want to keep the name, log in with the character.  SO.... if you haven't played for a while and are thinking about getting back in eventually.  Log in to save your names.  If you want to use some claimed names, get back in here!

  • The above probably also counts for active accounts but who still have chacters on other servers who haven't been logged into.  Dust off those old toons or lose the names, folks.

Me?  Well, I stll play on and off.  My 10-year-old son has a boosted 90 he's loving playing on.  I just returned, got What a Long Strange Trip It's Been (FINALLY) and am looking forward to the expansion.  Is WoW dying?  Probably.  Nothing lasts forever.  But it's still been fun to revisit now and then.

Selling a King Mukla loot card

I didn't see anything in the rules against this, but if it's not allowed feel free to delete this post.

I'm trying to sell off a King Mukla card on ebay. It's the loot card that gives the Bananas pet in the game.

The price is pretty low at the moment, but the auction doesn't end for another 5 days.

Leveling is... faster.

I'm leveling my first toon from level 1 since.... Burning Crusade.  I have three mains, two started during Vanilla and one started during BC. My play has been sporadic for several years, and when I have played I've been busy at Level Cap.

I made Proxima the Human Hunter when Cataclysm dropped, he stopped at 35 and had been sitting in Duskwood.  I slapped some Heirlooms on him, discovered the Darkmoon Fair buff and set about levelling.  the old world I wasn't surprised about, but entering Outland at 60... wow.  Trollbanes Command  + Darkmoon Fair + heirlooms = i was level 65 before leaving Hellfire Penninsula.  Only quests, no dungeon finder.

I think it took me a month or two to hit 70 in Outland when BC released.

Did you know this community turned 10 years old on September 9?  You folks - or as I've called you over the years "My Livejournal Guild" - have been with me since my first post to this community on March 7, 2006 and I'm in y'all's debt.

I'm a history buff.  Whenever I get into something I try to find out where it has been, etc.  That's why - frustrated no one else had done so - a few years back I started the Timeline of Events Surrounding World of Warcraft for the Fans on Wowpedia.  This helps folks out with things like "When was World of Warcraft mentioned in an episode of Stargate Atlantis?" or "When was that World of Warcraft Mountain Dew Promotion?"

And yesterday I started a page on Wowpedia for this community.  I'd been thinking about it for a while, and finally broke down.  If this community fades away (nothing lasts forever, alas), we'll always be remembered as a part of the game.

I'd like your help!  If you're a wiki junkie like myself you can feel free to edit the page.  If you have some history of the community please share it here (Please, no digging up old drama - that goes unsaid in any community).

Here's the page: World of Warcraft (Livejournal Community)

And again, thanks to all of you - new members and old.

Guilds

13 Dec 2013

Quest giver: bluesman in worldofwarcraft
Description
I am back, o learned ones, with yet another question. Your kind indulgence would be gratefully appreciated.

I am curious about guilds. In fact, I have been for a while, but now that my hunter has reached a level in the sixties, I think it’s feasible for him to be at leisure to join one and see what the heck it’s all about. I’ve been too busy questing and levelling up to spend time learning about them.

I actually did join one, early on, but its members ignored me (so why ask me to join?) and my chat pane was full of their smug, cliquey and sometimes profane chatter. Also, I think that there were probably too many members for comfort. A dozen or so would probably have been nearer the mark. I could see no in-game benefit to being a member, and received so many other invitations, before and after, that I formed the impression that some guilds were intent on recruiting as many heads as poss for its own sake, rather than seeking you because you have something specific to offer. I quit the guild and blocked guild invitations. I’ve been a lone wolf player for all this time, and am thinking that I’d like to interact with sensible, helpful coves out there.

I’ve poked about in the Guild Finder, but it doesn’t tell me much.

I gather that guilds are formed for different reasons, but I’m a bit hazy on what those reasons are, and how to ascertain what I’d want from a guild, or have to offer. Presumably, my different characters have differing talents to offer?

So...
1. Can one player have several characters in one guild?
2. Can one player have each character in a different guild?
3. How can a player seek out guilds that offer specific benefits or goals?
4. Does a player put out an ad of some sort (“mage seeks huge guild for chatter and mutual lunchtime back-rubs”?) listing his preferences? I imagine that the responses would be overwhelming.

I think I’d want a guild whose members help one another out during gameplay (if someone is on a quest needing several players, I’d be glad to pitch in, and I’m now coming across quests that require more than one player – and some people out there are unfriendly or have buzzed off by the time I type in a greeting and the suggestion to tackle this monster together). I wouldn’t mind sharing loot and even gold. What I would not be interested in is a purely social experience, what I had for lunch, isn’t So-And-So an idiot, etc. Lordy, I can do that in the workplace.

And before you ask, the realm I play in is Ysera.

Thank you for your attention, mes braves.

NSA spying on World of Warcraft

10 Dec 2013

Quest giver: rufushonkeriv in worldofwarcraft
Description
For any of you who don't know, evidently the NSA has been spying on World of Warcraft. Somewhere out there, someone is being paid to both be a real spy AND play World of Warcraft all day.  God, did I pick the wrong job.

Know what I keep thinking?  The NSA is trying to protect us against an attack - is that against the Alliance or the Horde?  It reminds me of the people who join a raid against an opposite-faction capital city and one of them ALWAYS says "I need to log off for just a second, hold a spot for me!" so they can go blab to the other faction.

Here's a pertinent video from The Daily Show:

Auctions

30 Nov 2013
6:55am
Quest giver: bluesman in worldofwarcraft
Description
Yet again I am prevailing upon the kindness of you all with a question.

I've hitherto not bothered with auctions, because I've been enjoying just questing, killing and messing about in dungeons, but I would like to buy a flying machine (now that I'm entitled to fly) and now find myself accumulating lots of cloth among my loot. I have heard that some players buy up a lot of the stuff, and a good mate told me yesterday that I can leave it at an auction house where I can get more money for it than I can by selling it to the usual vendors. Apparently between ten and a hundred times the amount. Is that extortionate?

So, following his advice, I created a character in Ironforge, who will be a go-between from the mailbox, to which I will send him the cloth, and the auction house. I sent him lots of the stuff and he went into the AH and that's where I got stuck.

I tried to start an auction, moved several stacks of runecloth into the box and he said "That's too expensive" at the game's suggested price, which was only twice the price a vendor would pay. I tried to reduce it, but nothing happened, so I probably needed to input something else, too. I think the first thing I must do is to search the auctions to see how much other chaps are asking for runecloth, and anything else I want to sell. Weapons? Armour?

Would someone please walk me through the procedure? The WoWpedia article looks helpful but if auctioning is a whole huge part of the game that takes me away from questing etc, then bollocks to it. I have heard that many players enjoy it so much that they spend most of their time on it.

Chat panels

Good morning everybody.

When I enter a dungeon, a second chat panel appears, atop the usual one. Can anybody please tell me how I can switch one of them off, and how to choose which of the two I can keep visible? If any of the other players in the dungeon is trying to tell me something, I don't see their speech bubble as I'm too busy clicking on/watching the spells reload at the bottom.

Thanks!

Warcraft 3 help

Description
So...I was playing a while ago, on RoC. My first time playing through and I got to the beginning of the Orc campaign (with Baine and Thrall, not the opening campaign). I didn't do this all in one go. It was over a few days. Today, I just tried to go back to the game...and apparently, my game is saved on the map where you need to get the three moonstone thingies to open the gate, back in the undead campaign. I've been through this level already. I really don't want to have to do that stupid half hour mission to guard KT, as well as the other missions between it and where I am. Any idea what happened? Between playing the last time and starting up again, I installed FT. Where does the game save my files? My friend created another profile on my PC and when I go into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft\Warcraft III\Save\" the only profile that's there is my Profile1. Where is my game? T__T

Art Commissions & Donations to Typhoon Haiya Victims

14 Nov 2013
8:28pm
Quest giver: iidx_girl in worldofwarcraft
Description
Hey guys, it's that time of year again when we can all use a bit of money.  I always like taking commissions from you guys because you're all so friendly.  :)

I'm going to donate 25% of each commission to Typhoon Haiya victims, and my prices will be dramatically decreased in an effort to get commissions in and out as soon as possible.
I work about 50 hours a week at my job, but I'll try to get commissions finished within 1-2 weeks (sub 1 week if possible).

At this time, I'm offering 3 slots of full body, full colored characters.  If you want a painting for two characters, then you have to get 2 out of the 3 slots, etc... I used to charge $110 for each character, but this time, I'm asking $75 a slot.  They will be of much higher quality as I have gotten a lot more practice since I last took commissions (I was runner's up in IGN's Diablo 3 fan art contest). If you really want a slot, but can't just quite close the money gap, then we can haggle.  If you really want a companion pet/hunter pet in there, too, we can talk about it.

For a slot for $75 (25% to charity), you'd get something like this:




More examples and infoCollapse )

And as usual, they don't have to be WoW characters.  They can be characters from other games, personal characters from a story, or you yourself as a game character, for example.

Comment on this entry or send me an email at tranc@vt.edu if you're interested.

Anyway, thanks for looking. (:  I hope people have super happy holidays
