I just recently started watching The Colbert Report and God do I love that show.

I saw him plugging it and I tried to vote but it didn't let me.  Anyways, that's cool he won.

expecially seeing as Dark Iron came up almost a year after launch.  Grats to them!


I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter about how long a realm is up or active for raid progress to be present, The European Guild "Nihilum" has consistantly been first to down all major bosses in WoW even with Europe getting the game some 8 months after the states. Also, I recently left my old Alliance guild on Drak'Thul (full Bloodfang Rogue) to start afresh on a new pvE realm as an orc Warrior. The realm is only 6 weeks old and yet there are already guilds rampaging through MC and BWl, its madness.


mainly due to the fact that there are incredibly detailed boss strategies out there (like wowwiki for instance) that tell you exactly what to watch out for and what abilities bosses have.

It's mostly just people hearing something and then selectively ignoring actual loot trends. For instance, we have a 5.9% drop rate on Nemesis Robes. Low Druid and Warlock population certainly doesn't help.


This is true, but it must certainly feel that way across all realms otherwise I don't think the little joke would have been put in Nefarian's letter in the AQ Scepter quest (if you don't clear BWL fast enough).

Stormrage Chest.
Nemesis Chest.
Pure Elementium Band.
Mishun'dare.


God it seems like Druid and Warlock chests always drop.

Hope they didn't get DE'ed.  I guess for a first time kill they wouldn't.

i always really enjoyed the ratchet series a lot.  If you go in that direction, i'd pick up the 2nd then the third one (going commando is the 2nd and up your arsenal is the 3rd).

Also Okami is coming out this week and that should be one amazing game.  I can't wait personally.

Quote from: "ZE GRAND MASTER"
Anyway, I'll get to the point I was going to make here. I heard that websites like Ctrl-Alt-Del have several hundred thousand members (that could be an exaggeration) , consisting of most of the internet nerdy percentage of the gaming population around the world (its true, you'd have to be the kind of person who spends a hell of a lot of time on the internet to be on forums with that kind of popularity). If you can't imagine 350-odd members, try a few thousand...

I like the relatively close-knit community of this website, as it means you start to know the regulars if you post as often as I do. On Ctrl-Alt-Del, it would be impossible to know anybody on the whole forum, unless you posted about say 500 posts a day. (that's both sarcasm and exaggeration  lol)


I could never stand the ctrl alt del website and tim buckley is a self-absorbed arrogant prick.  John plays WoW on Dark Iron so I'm sure he remembers all the rapscallion shit that went on.  Tim came on, threw a hissy fit and g(guild)kicked everyone for practically no reason.  Members went to the board and said he's a cock and he's so into himself that he thinks he's God.  Also supposedly he sent pictures of his penis to two 16 and 17 year old girls.  

He posted on the thread later but he never denied those claims.  I've stopped reading ctrl alt del since.  Just kind of ruined it for me.

Don't you think though in a few months the current 40 mans will practically be obsolete?  Burning Crusade is just around the corner.  Probably late november/december i'm guessing.  Depends on how much they're gonna test the new dungeons.


There's still a fair bit of debate about how well Tier 3 will hold up.  Depending on how much they change the itemization formulas (The Stamina change is notable), Naxx loot could easily stand until level 70 raid dungeons (Some of Kel'Thuzad's loot table is iLevel 96, iirc).

Plus, if you plan on raiding in BC, it could be necessary to get an Atiesh to hit up Karazhan.


The Tier 3 part is true, but how many are going to still raid that?  I agree tier 3 will hold up to blues at 70, but tier 4 should blow it away.  I guess it's possible to still raid current raid dungeons after BC, but I wonder how many will actually be doing it.  It's not really worth it time wise to raid anything but Naxx post BC.  Even then I dunno.  There are enough non-raid dungeons to gear yourself up for BC raid dungeons if you aren't geared already.

Also, is that (Atiesh) the only way to get into Karazhan?  I didn't know that.

Im so ready for Naxx. Just a few more months. In Wow time, thats right around the corner.


Sorry to hear about your old guild.  Good luck with the new guild.

In my current news, I found a [Precisely Calibrated Boomstick] the other day.  Trying to sell it for 200g, not goin so well though.  Our economy is fucked up.

Worth every mana point spent.  Fuckin' pallys.

Twin Emps down.


I was just looking at my realm forums and someone else from our realm killed him at about the same time (you posted about 1-2 hours later than they did).

Are you in <Bloodline> on Garithos?
2681  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe stuff. on: September 10, 2006, 11:44:33 PM
Some questions I couldn't find the answers to:

How is loot based?  Do crates just appear after you kill a boss and you just smash and hope you're one of the ones who gets a box full of goodies?

Are the pvp problems that were in PSO gone?  I didn't really play PSO so I'm unclear, but couldn't people kill you in the world and take your stuff?

Do you lose your stuff when you die like you did in PSO?

that looks fun.  If it comes with a feature that anyone can download the game onto their DS for multiplayer mayhem (with all the multiplayer features), i'll definitely buy this.

Quote from: "The Darkrider"
Gotta love tanks dual wielding axes.  Gotta love healers who seem to think they can heal in a bear shape.  Gotta love hunters who multishot every time and wonder why they keep getting aggro.  Gotta love a paladin who got stuck with a bunch of fucktards.

Fuck Gnomer in its green midget ass. :P


You know, the more I play this game, the more I think everyone who plays it is a complete freaking retard.


WoW proves darwinism wrong.

As for gnomer, i always hated running that.  It was easy until you got to the part with the dark iron dwarves.  Most groups never get all the bombs disabled.

Lately i've been playing some WSG wiith my mage.  I thought, hey -- it's a good time to get to friendly since i'm almost there.  WRONG.  Let this picture sum up most of the games I was in:

Fuck Alliance.  Strangely I have not been in a game yet where Horde does it.  But i'm sure it happens.  and a big fuck you to blizzard for not fixing this since 1.12.

both warriors tanked with 2H, and we had a kamikaze 56 mage who apparently thought that he should nuke until he dies. Ironically, the only person who seemed to know wtf was going on was an unguilded 60 mage the "MT" knew. Probably the most fun part was the MT always, and I mean ALWAYS, charging into the fray when I just sit down to drink.


that sucks... did you tell them to put on a shield and they just didn't listen?  if they are that stupid then they're probably one of those warriors who soloed to 60 and never did the quest for defensive stance.

depending on how bad the pull was when they charged, i would have just kept drinking and letting them die.  it's counter productive but damnit when the healer is drinking let him drink.

I just love how this game can be so frustrating and so awesome at the same time. Yesterday me and a guildmate joined up with some randoms and travelled into Scholomance. The group consisted of me (priest), my guildmate (hunter), a pretty good warrior and two morons in the shapes of a rogue and a paladin. The rogue was in a big raiding guild, and refused to follow the lead of others. He would constantly attack mobs other than the desinated target, break shackle etc. The paladin, on the other hand, was about 8 year old and had great trouble understanding basic english. No matter how many times we would tell him to stay in a corner, he would always follow the puller into the room we were pulling from. And he would bless people with BoW/M even though we asked for other buffs. And so on.


I love how people (the rogue) think that just because their in a raid group that makes them awesome or something.  I really hate hearing about horrid group stories.  Makes me lose faith in the populace (in wow).

As for horrid group stories, I have one of recently.  It's not that theese guys were complete morons... the group makeup just fucking sucked.  I don't know what convinces people to try and do an instance with a really crappy group.  The group consisted of:

1 x Resto druid tank (lol)
2 x Elemental Shaman who aggroed like mad
1 x rogue who couldn't out dps a fly.  the 60 rogue was still using the SM sword.
1 x priest who is shadow specced for soloing and is rusty from not playing his priest often.

We wiped about 7 times on the way to Jandice and didn't even kill her.  I'd cast flash heal only to get aggro of multiple enemies.  It sucked.
2685  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / BC Tier 4 armour sets on: September 07, 2006, 06:16:35 PM
The rogue armor looks pretty sweet.  Kinda reminds me of a plate set.  Helmet looks retarded as usual.

Mage set is pretty cool too.  I don't like the huge coller.  maybe that's a head piece similar to the head of transcendance.

Priest set is fucking badass.  Maybe ill level my priest to 70 and raid.

Paladin set is okay.. helmet sucks though.
