    So, how long until they allow faction transfers? It would obviously be subject to maintaining Alliance / Horde ratios on servers and actually could be a decent tool for fixing imbalances on servers via combo server & faction transfer. I personally would love to transfer some of my alliance toons on sargeras to horde on this server or another. Would also reduce whining about racials and BGs (if things are so bad go join the other side)

    I tried carebaring with OS in the IF tram 2 years ago - you guys were not impressed but I did make good my escape (I think the mindcontrol was a bad idea)

    There was another time when I found an OS guy afk in Eastern Plaguelands - I MC'ed him all the way up to a top of a mountain and left him there. Good times

    I like the idea of the new items but they should have it go from 1-70, and then have people upgrade from there.

    So, it appears that they're doing away with school-specific bonuses now (My Robe on beta right now). Losing 32 damage from the set? Boy, I hope I haven't passed on any robes/shoulders/boots that would have been a replacement lately...

    Oh hell yeah, I can't wait to get rid of my stupid fucking frozen shadoweave set. lol pajama feets

    Considering that they're equal to a rare, at best you'll end up with the item 'levelling up' to the equivelent of something you could snag in a five man, which may or may not retain its usefulness, when you account for things like gem slots, set bonuses and the like.

    10% increased exp earned is great! ... until you can't earn exp anymore, at least.

    Once people start doing heroics, arenas and raiding, I imagine the items will eventually be tucked away in a bank somewhere, or tossed to a new alt to start the process all over again.

    Gettings the tokens to get the gear in the first place means you've gotten one character to 80 anyway. People have long discussed the idea that, after reaching level cap, your alts should have a slightly easier time of it, and this mechanic seems like it'd work fine.

    So can anyone explain to me exactly what I have to do to get the 300% exp bonus from the recruit-a-friend program? I wanna level an alt up asap for WotLK and I wanna know exactly how much it'll cost me to get the bonus.

    Start a new account that you send the RAQ code to from your original account. Then for 90-days anytime characters from both accounts are grouped together and near each other they gain 3x EXP (up to level 60).

    You have to group with the friend who referred you.
    Or vice versa.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    To start a new account you'll need a new copy of WoW, if you want to go to outlands or be a Blood Elf, you'll need BC as well.

    It's free for the first 10 days as a trial of course. But the trial account limitations are indeed... limiting. I think I upgraded to a full account before I'd left Northshire Valley on my dual-boxed warlocks.

    So far I've got the idea...opening with Icy Touch and Plague Strike to stack Diseases, spam Heartstrike, if low on health use Death Strike to finish up or to just get health back.

    It changes. If you have epidemic(a good idea), you can do two rotations, one where both diseases are applied, and in the second, you can avoid plague strike and/or icy touch and use something else.

    does Epidemic extend the duration of your diseases does it?

    I am not going to miss my frozen shadow weave set I have worn it for far too long
    I look like a mage in it

    It seems I am not going to get a beta invite for whatever reason so if I make a death knight I am going to stand around looking at the trees and guessing what I am going to do


    The debate is also going to be is it going to be on my main account or alt account

    I ment which account is the death knight going to be on since dual boxing a warlock/priest is far to easy

    Really? That's farther than I am.

    I'm stuck at "Waiting..."

    I'd blame it on it waiting for WoW to exit, but it stay that way always, even with nothing else running... I suppose I could just grab the actual torrent itself and do it by hand.

    I dunno, I don't usually use the launcher, so I don't know that there's a new patch until either I start hearing other people say there's a patch imminent, or I'm unable to login because I needta patch.

    I'm just surprised we're getting 3.0 already. Has a hard release-date on WotLK been nailed down yet? I haven't bothered to check -- it'll probably just get pushed back, whatever it is.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they're on course for November 3rd like a lot of retailers have listed and they're just not announcing it too soon on account of the nasty effect the BC announcement caused the raiding community. I have a feeling a WotLK release date announcement comes on the heels of 3.0.

    Just got this feeling.
