    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    Just buy a high ilevel trinket or two and equip them until the raid starts killing stuff, then switch them out.

    I did this with PvP stuff - just bought totems and trinkets and it pushed me above 5K, and then switched out to my actual gear. . .because apperantly the floaty number is what's important to the GS Nazi's, not what someone actually has on.

    And, what can only be the universe smiling on me - qued for Random Normals as DPS, instead of as a tank, get tossed into ToC that's in progress, on first boss, and proceed to get a hand, leg upgrade, as well as The Black Heart to drop. I seriously couldn't believe it.

    I don't care so much about gearscore because it isn't that hard to get up to around 5k or so, and then you're fine to get into most raids.

    It's more annoying in heroics when people with higher-end gear play like everyone around them does. Like, hey, ret paladin in 264s? My resto set isn't good enough to keep you up while you try and dps through lightning nova. Hey, ret paladin who queued as a "healer?" I understand that works when you are healing your ICC main tank through the daily, but it works less well for my druid who is still in mostly T7.

    Hey guys, I don't play WoW anymore but I was wondering if anyone could give me an update on the plot developments since vanilla WoW? I watched some cinematics on youtube that gave me an idea of what's happened, but nothing solid. Googling it brings up information for the movie.
    TBC: Alliance and Horde return to Draenor through the Dark Portal. They find a shattered world under assault from the Burning Legion. Illidan has built a stronghold on this world as well and is marshalling his forces, fearing the retribution of Kil'Jaeden for his failure to kill Arthas. Kael'thas is here as well....up to no good.

    Fel Orcs have a stronghold in Hellfire peninsula...empowered with the blood of a captured pitlord, Magtheridon, and they serve Illidan.

    Illidan's naga allies have a stronghold in Zangarmarsh swamp where they're draining the waters to create a new Well of Eternity.

    The Blood Elves(new player race) who didn't side with Kael'thas have been rebuilding Silvermoon and trying to fend off the Scourge. Since it's apparent Kael'thas has abandoned them, they join the Horde. It's later discovered the Blood Elven order of paladins have captured a Naaru(an immensely powerful crystalline being of Light) and are tapping his power in order to empower their paladins. Long story short....they learn the errors of their ways and become true paladins eventually.

    Some of the elves who followed Kael'thas to Outland become disillusioned and defect, becoming the Scryer faction in Outland.

    Kael'thas, seeking a new source of power to fuel the magic addiction of him and his people, has sided with Burning Legion. Using ships captured from the Draenei he is attempting to siphon the very energy of Draenor itself, shattering the world further. After his defeat at Tempest Keep he shows up at the Sunwell and attempts to summon Kil'Jaeden into the world. The Naaru the Blood Elves had captured shows up here as well having fallen to darkness. Queue a serious ass kicking...Kael'thas is defeated and Kil'Jaeden is prevented from fully entering the world.

    The Draenei(new player race)....good Eredar who did not join the Burning Legion...stole one of the ships Kael'thas had commandeered. Due to sabotage they crashland on Azeroth and end up joining the Alliance.

    Eventually players defeat the threats in Outland...stopping the Burning Legion, Illidan, Kael, and the naga and fel orcs and return home to Azeroth where the Lich King is becoming much more active.

    The Alliance and Horde forces head to Northrend to fight Arthas on his homeground. They find new allies, new enemies, lots of Titan artifacts and structures, and tons of Scourge. The Horde forces are led by the bloodthirsty Garosh Hellscream(you may remember him as that emo, whiny orc brat in Nagrand who never appreciated all the stuff you did for him).

    Naxxramas is here, recalled by the Lich King to lay siege to an Alliance fortress.

    The Scarlet Crusade is here, unwitting pawns of the dreadlord Mal'Ganis who hopes to use them against the Lich King. The Argent Dawn is present....now called the Argent Crusade...led by Tirion Fordring and here to fight the Scourge and bring an end to the Lich King. Death Knights(new playable class) who have broken free of the Lich King's control are here as well...seeking vengeance against their former master.

    Players also find an Old God who is breaking free of it's prison and attempting to corrupt and subvert anything it can(including some of the Titan's servants who were left to watch over things). The earthen remain loyal to the Titans and steadfast in their given task but the Iron Dwarves have fallen to the Old God, Yogg Saron and they're up to all sorts of mischief.

    The trolls of the Drakkari Empire, in a misguided attempt to fend off the Scourge and preserve their empire.... slew their gods in order to empower themselves. Not working out for them.

    The Vrykul....a norse inspired viking type race that rever the Lich King as a death god and serve him are all over the place. They're apparently the progenitors of the human race on Azeroth. They've been asleep until recently. The Val'Kyr are female vrykul who have been found worthy and empowered by the Lich king. They are akin to the Valkyrie of norse legends. They judge vyrkul and decide which is worthy of the Lich King's gifts and which shall serve as mindless undead. They serve as arbiters and judges, fearsome guardians of the spirit world, and enforcers of the Lich King's will.

    Malygos, the Blue Dragon Aspect, has started a war against the mortal races...seeking to eradicate uncontrolled use of arcane magic and if that means eradicating the mortal races so be it. He doesn't seem to have a problem with killing members of the other dragonflights to achieve his ends either.

    The Lich King is thrilled with this development since it just means more bodies for his army and undead dragons are a nice unit to have.

    The Black Dragon flight has continued to experiment with genetic manipulation of dragonkind, creating the Twilight Flight of dragons. The infinite dragon flight is still interfering with the timeline....and apparently being led by Nozdormu, the bronze dragon Aspect and guardian of Time.

    King Varian Wrynn returns to reclaim the throne of Stormwind. He's not a very happy person. Bolvar Fordragon goes off to war. He will suffer a terrible fate. Saurfang's son does as well in the same battle.

    Renegades within the Forsaken, led by the supposed defeated dreadlord Varimathras, betray the Horde/Alliance forces at a critical moment in Northrend, forcing the Lich King's retreat and decimating the Alliance and Horde forces gathered to fight him. Varimathras captures the Undercity, intent on summoning his master through a portal. Players are called upon to help recapture the city and stop him.


    The players progress through Northrend, eventually assaulting Icecrown Citadel itself. It is here that the ultimate fate Saurfang jr. and Bolvar Fordragon is discovered.

    Frostmourne is shattered. The Lich King is eventually slain. The king is dead. Long live the king. It is explained that so long as there is a Scourge army there must be a Lich King to control them. The animated, fiery corpse of Bolvar dons the helmet and becomes the new Lich King. He promises to be a good boy. Probably not a good idea in the long run.

    In the deep places of the world, Deathwing stirs. The end of the world comes....
    (queue next expansion)

    Thank you, that actually cleared a lot up for me.

    Ah, so that's what the naga are up to. I don't think it was ever specifically mentioned why they were stealing all the water (although I only ever did lurker in SSC, so maybe they talked about it there). I always thought it was a metaphor for the water wars between southern california and Arizona.

    But why did they need so much water to make a well of eternity? Couldn't they have taken a normal well and, dunno, made that eternal?

    Did we ever account for all the Vials of Eternity that Illidan was supposed to have? I know we took the ones he had given to the naga and Kael'thas and handed them over to the Bronze Dragons, but wasn't Illidan supposed to have some more?

    According to WoWiki he had seven vials. He used three to create the Well on top of Hyjal. He gave one to Vashj and one to Kael. That leaves two unaccounted for.

    Blizzard has broken gear score, by making the requirement for top tier epics do a random heroic daily and zerg down a boss that wasn't hard 15 months ago once a week. In TBC if you saw someone rocking Sunwell loot you knew that were good, now having 5/5 t10 just means you're patient/lucky(VOA), not that you have a clue what you are doing.

But today I hit 68 on my lock and did some quests in northrend. I want a woolly rhino mount so fucking bad. I don't know if they exist in mount form or not, nor can I explain my need, but it is there.

    I like Gearscore. In pugs I use it as a tool to decide if scrubs are undergeared or underskilled. I don't like bitching out the new 80's. I do like bitching out the 5k GS DKs that can't pull 2k. Also it's a barometer for my own dps - if someone is close in GS, it's an obligation to me that I beat them in DPS. It did me a lot of good to see where my dps was relative to similarly geared players.
    In raids, it is a lot faster to filter on GS than to pull up an armory for each attendee. The biggest problem I see is that pre-icc gear puts your number right below a big round number, so whereas lots of people would be fine in icc with 4900 gear, they're not going to get the spot. It sucks, but from the other side if I can easily get random dudes w/ 5300gs, I'm not going to take a dude with 4900.
    There's a lot of dickbag ways to use the addon, but it's not like there's a shortage of ways to be a dickbag in wow. Overall it improves the game.
