    So pretty much everyone in my guild as quit WoW so now I'm left with pretty much no one to play with. I'm going to try and see if I can get into a raiding guild so I can see the Cata content I haven't seen yet and make my subscription worth it. But, if I can't I'm just gonna let my subscription expire and wait for TOR or something.

    Per chance, does anybody need a Prot or Ret Paladin? Preferably I'd like something on my own server (Shadowsong), but I could be convinced to drop down the cash monies if I could end up raiding. Don't have access to the WoW site at work so I can't link my armory, but you can do a search if you're interested, Sephyr the Blood Elf Paladin on Shadowsong. All my tank gear is 346+ and my Ret is technically a higher total ilevel, but there's still a couple 333s in there (legs and back if I remember correctly).
    All my friends quit playing, so I joined a guild with Beyond Normal, so that I could play with someone I know. Then he stopped playing WoW and I'm in a guild and I don't know anyone. :(

    My GM stole 125,000 gold from the guild bank. He said he stopped playing like two weeks ago because he was bored with the game. Imagine my surprise when the guild bank was nearly empty.

    So I opened a ticket and reported it. Oh yeah I mentioned that the other day he was laughing hysterically about the fact that his friend's guild gkicked all but like 3 people once they were a heroic away from hitting level 20 in the guild. Why did I open a ticket? We're almost level 20 and this guy can be a raging douchebag for no reason.

    So the GM looked into it and lo and behold the money reappeared. I hope against hopes if the guild gets gdisbanded or we get kicked that another ticket will resolve that because I'll be fucking damned if I spent a year on the guild for that. Wish the other Guild Master didn't give it to this douchebag. Not sure what happened, he didn't used to be an asshole.

    Hey GM, you're awesome.

    I've never had a bad experience with them. For its failings, WoW does have great GMs. Just consider the assholes they have to deal with.

    YUP. When my friend was explaining to me about WoW and its different classes and specs three years ago, I told him I would probably be a warrior. He then says, oh thats cool, cause warriors can duel wield two handed swords. And im, like woah what? Fuck yeah im going that route then!

    Yeah I hate that both have GM for abbreviation as this causes confusion.

    tl;dr Guild Master takes off with 125,000 gold, I open ticket, Game Master says he will take a look and see if we can't back the money and prevent guild from being disbanded. 2 days later the 125,000 gold returns.

    Is it different now? I gave up on my newbie warrior for awhile because weapon skill ups and the transition to BC was a pain in the ass. I ended up lvling him to 80 very late in wrath and it was alot easier to finish up BC I would imagine the warrior is still some what slow until you get plate. You start destroying mobs once you get CS though.

    I <3 Titan's Grip.

    Unfortunately, my warrior is a fBelf.

    So 2-hand swords for me are what 1-hand swords would be for anyone else.

    When I play single-minded fury people get confused and think I'm an assassination rogue.

    My brother tanked as fury in dungeons, dual wielding away, until BC, where he switched to prot (mostly because he was bored).

    He was extremely easy to keep up through just smite-healing, so yeah, if you're <60, it pretty much doesn't matter.

    How is fury right now compared to arms?

    Since 4.1 I'm doing crazy dps with crap gear on my arms warrior. I was fury in Wotlk, the tail end anyway and it was great, if a bit on the boring side (compared to arms imo) but when I got to 85, I couldn't suffer through such low hit to get the gear I needed to make fury viable.

    Maybe I'm just not good at following the s.priest priority system, or perhaps I'm undergeared, but I can't really seem to put out much dps with it.

    I have 7 of 10 to 85 and I would put at least 3 classes above warriors in ease 80-85. Probably more if I would level pali and druid to 85.

    Archaeology is supposed to be about discovering, preserving, and honoring cultural items found, in order to learn from the past. Currently we don't do that. Instead we are forced to coldly vendor what we don't want. No donation to a museum, no return to the races of origin. Couldn’t we do something more important with these items? Can we expect more interesting stories with artifacts? Will you do something about this to make it feel like the player is getting something useful back, and perhaps remove a little bit of the random part of it so that it's more fun and focused? - Whitewnd (KR), Pusen (EU-EN), Unjoiner (NA/ANZ)

    Originally, we didn't intend to create items at all when you completed a normal archaeology find, but that didn't feel right. So now we have these items that still don't feel right because you can't do anything fun with them. We are working on a more thematic and interesting way to consume the artifacts you dig up. These include returning them to the museums (for the devoted archaeologist) and the option to continue vendoring them (if you wish to continue your career as a cold-blooded treasure hunter.)

    Additionally, we plan to add daily quests, a deeper story, additional skill gains, and the flexibility to focus on a specific race.

    Some players may not have noticed that all artifacts have lore associated with them in the journal, even the grey ones. Every bit of it is Genuine Lore, and verified by our lore masters. So were the Dalaran Coins, of course, but not those silly Romance Novels.
    Thank. Fucking. God. This was driving me nuts about archeology.
    Will professions at some point regain the ability to make upgradable items, such as the Weaponsmiths had in the Burning Crusade? It was quite a cool concept, and wouldn't be unfair if all crafting professions would gain at least 1 of those items. - Hydramith (EU-EN), Auryon (EU-DE)

    The concept of upgrading a piece of equipment is a very cool idea that we'd love to revisit, but not as a best in slot item. A crafted BIS item removes that entire slot as an interesting drop choice, and it strongly forces players into specific professions. For example, if there is a crafted best in slot weapon, you can bet a vast majority of players will feel obligated to take up blacksmithing, as was the case in the Burning Crusade. The profession perks, which are reasonably balanced, already add an incentive to take professions.
    Wouldn't a solution to the "best in slot" deal involve making the upgrade require a resource from the same source the dropped BIS is from? I mean... whatever, but I loved that upgrading thing. It's why my shaman in TBC had blacksmithing. Those dragon hammers were the shit.
    Have you ever considered creating daily quests for professions other than jewelcrafting? - Superpotion (NA/ANZ)

    We've mostly considered it for the secondary professions, since they are the most accessible professions to the most players. When we add another large chunk of recipes again, we'll evaluate each profession to see if dailies are a good fit.
    Goddamn it Blizzard.
    Will there be a way to distinguish profession nodes on the minimap for those that have two gathering professions? - Discordia (LA)

    That’s a good suggestion. We recently added the ability to see your target and focus target on the minimap, but the feedback we’ve received from players is that they clutter up the map too much. Coming up with unique icons that work with only a few pixels might be challenging. We’ll give it a shot though.
    That'd be really cool! I have lots of characters with two gathering skills.
    Will you provide a way to speed up the acquiring of glyphs usually acquired through research and glyph books? Glyph books (Book of Glyph Mastery) are hard to come by now that people spend so little time in WotLK content. - Furlqt (NA/ANZ), 에르네스트린덴만 (KR), Kånê (EU-ES)

    Yes. We will be changing the discovery spells so they can teach all possible glyphs, and the books will simply provide a no-cooldown method to do the same thing.
    Just bringing this to the thread in case anyone missed it. Good news.
    Are there any plans to change Original and Burning Crusade profession skills so that new players can skill up their profession skills more similar pace with leveling? Low level trade skill materials on Auction House are generally expensive for new players, and new players must feel they are stuck if they should left low level zones just for profession skill up, while they want to increase both of them at same pace. - Whitewnd (KR), Гаркара (EU-RU)

    Yes. Definitely. As we move forward, making sure older content has a smooth flow is a top priority. In fact, we have Top Men working on it. Top. Men.
    Hopefully this will include a revamp of the goddamn textures / models used for the older content crafted stuffs. I'm not asking for new stuff, they can re-use stuff, but make it look... like, good. And match better.

    When "fair" means everyone is forced to take blacksmithing or whatever gives their spec the best upgradeable, then that's pretty bad.

    Oh, it's good to see that a problem that had already become pervasive by the beginning of WotLK (end of 2008) is finally on their radar here in mid-2011.
