    Huh, well I didn't exactly intend to finish that off today, but all Outland Heroics are now achieved. Of course, my paladin had already run almost all of those during TBC itself, but that was before the achievement system was implemented. I ported to Area 52 and got changed into a Female Draenei, which was pretty awesome... ran all three Coilfang instances as such before it ran out.

    I found out that the first boss in Crypts apparently doesn't do *anything* when he's fought solo, which was interesting to know. Mana-Tombs recorded my only actual wipe when I ran past all the mobs in the Prince's room to try just engaging him... unfortunately, he's linked to every mob in his room. Also, the big rock guy in Mana-Tombs is a fucker with that god damn Crystal Prison eventually made me use LoH. The Prince also ended up being close to the toughest fight with all the magic damage flying around, nearly had to use LoH.

    Sethek was uneventful, I was halfway through Shadow Labs when a friend of mine was bored and joined me because I was iffy about Murmur solo. We ended up duoing the rest I needed, Botanica, Arcatraz, Old Hillsbrad, Black Morass and Magister's Terrace. All except Magister's Terrace I bet I could've done solo... might've been able to do it too, just not positive.

    MgT is cake once you know how to take the second boss. Kill 2 waves of the sparks then bubble wall the rest and take him out.

    Kael on the other hand is a bitch now that LoH is connected to forbearance.

    With my friend Boomkin-ing we just nuked them before it was a problem. Kael never even start a Pyro.

    You can LoS his Pyro in MGT.

    Was running around in southern Tanaris today and noticed there is a rather large hole in Uldum's door. How long has it been like that, I wonder? (If you say since release I will feel stupid)

    That hole's been there since before Wrath launched. I remember wondering what the hell Uldum was when I leveled my Rogue a year and a half ago.

    I can vouch that it's been there since Vanilla WoW, so over half a decade now.

    ... it's kind of weird to put it in perspective like that.

    Edit: at least, as far as I recall. I remember seeing the door and hole and arrows and noticing that the debris was on the outside, which in my mind indicated that likely something was trying to get out. Something *BIG*. I saw this before I got into raids, where the largest world or instance mob I'd seen really wasn't THAT much bigger than my character. I was concerned about facing something so huge.

    These days, not so much.

    Actually, I'd say people still playing EQ and UO are very, very weird. Probably less so UO than EQ, because UO is substantially different than most MMOs today. Everything EQ1 did other games today do better, and EQ1 looks like utter shit by today's visual standards.

    Having never played a MMO for more than a year straight (played UO, EQ, AC, AC2, SB, FFXI, SB, AO, DAOC, CoH for varying lengths of time), it's weird to think that I am still playing this game 5 years later. It's weird to play any game for that long, not the norm.

    The people playing EQ1 now have probably been playing for a very long time and hold (or believe to hold) some kind of status they feel they must maintain. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if there are people out there who simply refuse to shell out a few bucks to buy a system that can run WoW.

    SoE adds content on what appears to be a yearly basis, but seriously, after a while, more of the same is....more of the same.

    I played EQ1 from release and WoW from release, on my first WoW break I tried going back to WoW and it's a bit like trying to go back to playing the original Pitfall, only minus the nostalgia.

    Considering that some of my fondest gaming memories came from the era of the 386-Pentium 1, I'm no stranger to old games. Also, am now feeling old. But appreciating a game over 5-10 years old (hai 2 u X-Com) isn't the same as having literal months or years of time spent in said game over the past 5'ish years.

    Which might be a touch pedantic, and thus a sign that it's time for lunch/dinner. Lunner? :?

    So, I just finished SM Cathedral on my Rogue. The party has been kind of... not so hot. Paladin tank who is obviously used to soloing as Ret, knockback-happy Mage, Hunter who can't control his pet, etc. We do okay until we get into the cathedral proper, and after a few pulls we're faced with Mograine. Note that neither side wing has been cleared. You can probably see where this is going.

    Paladin: "wanna do mograine or the undead guy first?"
    Me: "Uh... Don't do that. Pulling him pulls both of the side wings."
    Mage: "They don't do that anymore. Just pull."
    Paladin: "Durr, okay!"

    Paladin pulls, group wipes. Aside from me, since I got the hell out of Dodge.

    Such a stark contrast with the 20-minute Uldaman I blazed through right before.

    It's probably a support issue so they don't get waves of morons complaining that their password doesn't work because they forgot a letter was capitalized from 3 years ago.

    I had a job in college where we ended up just doing this. Some of the sales computers had capslock turned on at boot and their built-in keyboards didn't have a way to turn it back off. It ended up being a lot easier than dealing with nine people a day who couldn't log into the computers on the front counter because it was in lowercase, and then deal with them again when they tried to get on the back room computers and couldn't because now capslock wasn't on.

    As for hacked accounts: If this accounts for a dozen stolen accounts out of the hundreds that probably get it every month I'd be surprised. Even against a brute force attack, caps don't add the complexity that odd characters do, because most dictionary attacks try capitalization - it'll slow them down, but a couple $@`%;s will stop them cold.

    The vast majority (if not basically all) of stolen accounts are keyloggers (2 minutes on the forums will display that pretty well), phishing (all the cataclysm beta invites and fake account suspension emails), and powerleveling services that like to come back a couple months later and see if the password got changed or just don't give the account back in the first place.

    On another note is questing the fastest way to level? I can only seem to quest when I get into a groove for it and any other time I have no desire to quest. Which is really disappointing because this Mage deserves to get to 80. First character and all.

    The fastest way to level is to Quest while putting yourself in the LFG queue for either Battlegrounds or random dungeons, whichever you prefer, questing until the queue pops, enter the battlegrounds/dungeon, receive xp and a nice side-activity to questing, then repeat.
