    So every once in a while I jump onto Moon Guard to watch the craziness unfold. Today, something really bizarre caught my attention. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but I looked up at the chandelier, and...

    There's a gnome corpse hanging by its feet from the damn thing. That is frightening, considering what happens here on this server.

    ... And now another gnome is hanging from the other chandelier in the exact same way. o.o

    Edit -

    His name is indeed Mario. No umlauts or anything, just straight up Mario.

    Is anyone having problems clicking things in chat? For the past week or so I've been unable to click on item links, names to send tells, anything. This is only a very recent problem and I deactivated my one chat mod, so I have no idea what could be causing it. It's irritating.
    Right click the chat tab and click "Make Interactive". If that's not it, I have no idea.

    Spoiler:
    I love how you brush over the "convenience tax" as if it's nothing.

    By this logic, we've had infinite specs since basically launch when you could respec as many times as you wanted. So why do you even need dual spec, let alone more?

    Oh right, because that "convenience tax" is fucking HUGE.
    So you have never respecced for a specific encounter then? Your friends have never respecced for a specific encounter? No one has ever respecced for a specific encounter, a specific raid, a specific instance rune, the next-half-hours-worth-of-10-arena games?
    When was the last time you heard "Sorry guys, spending 10-15 minutes getting 100g for two respecs is too much, I'm not gonna be able to make tonights raid, so we'll be down one healer, so I guess we have to cancel"?

    I'm not saying the convenience tax is "nothing", but I'm just not seeing how this supposed pillar of encounter balance actually meshes with reality. Seriously, does anyone here actually play with people who will wipe for weeks on end on a difficult encounter, think "okay, we're dying to adds" or "if our warlocks were affliction, they'd do more damage because this entire shit is a running multi-target battle followed by an execute phase" (you know the fight :winky: ) and then not respec because 'pretend-monies'?

    I'm not trying to be an ass here, but the argument that respec costs lets them tune encounter "less tightly" because people come at them with less than optimal specs is so far afield of my observed reality that it just doesn't mesh. From Twin Emps, to Leotheras and Vashj, to Yogg-Saron and beyond, the people I've played with have respecced whenever it is clear that a different spec provides a needed edge. Once the encounter is on farm, once we've got the gear/practice to not make us get every edge we can, we'll drop that, but... For everything else, this huge inconvenience tax manages to be less of an obstacle than repair costs.

    Why are you and forty using examples with people who make up .1% of the playerbase as why this needs to be changed? By you admittance that it only matters to these people doesn't that destroy your argument that it absolutely needs to be done?

    If 99.9 percent of the playerbase played their spec because they thought it was the coolest and mostest funnest spec in the whole wide world I would be very surprised.

    People generally play the best spec for whatever it is they want/NEED to do.

    I just got a guild invite to join Definitely Not A Dragon, which I was so tempted to accept because that guild name rules the day when it comes to RP servers.

    Damn, I lost track of the person who had an RP profile written to note that she's pregnant.

    What class are you? I ask because as a resto shaman, there are epic quality boots from Earthern ring that are nearly on par with the BoE valor boots (I think all that I've written there is correct) provided you get the rep.

    Holy Paladin


    Anyone here familiar with the Hyjal server? I was looking around and they seem to have a handful of horde guilds that make progress while raiding only two nights a week at a time that doesn't suck for me. Every horde guild on my server [suramar] raids an hour before it is reasonable for me to or raid 3-5 days or on weekends.

    It's definitely more than .1% of players who would appreciate or enjoy the game more if they could buy another spec slot. The examples given were specific counter-arguments to a misunderstanding of the game.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't stick around to see his shtick (he marched his way in proudly and got up on the table to face the masses) because I'm on my way out the door to work. But bonus points to him anyway.

    I think I'm gonna spend more time on Moon Guard to watch the ongoings for the next week or so. I've been fairly bored of WoW again and this was mildly entertaining.

    I'm not even posting up the MyRolePlay profiles I read. I could start though!

    Edit - Oh I almost forgot, just before I left a couple dudes marched in with chained infernals and unleashed them on the Lion's Pride. It's an old trick but I haven't seen it in a while and I was amused as my character was cleansed along with all the other fuckalts. It's inspired me to roll a lock to bring doom to Goldshire now and then.

    Does anyone have a link to/copy of the supposedly "leaked" release schedule specifically for WoW? Not the one that was posted on MMO-Champ last month, the one I'm referring to was supposedly leaked sometime mid-late Vanilla. I'm just curious as to where we are on that schedule and if there's any more reason to give it credibility.
