There's xp nerf for 85-90 on ptr currently, should come on 5.3  :)

Oh thank fuck for that! :D

I quit as well. But I DO remember you!  :)

ELSIEPELSIE! :D <3

If only gnomes could be shammies.

WHYYYYYYYY is this not possible? Freakin' GOBLINS get to be shammies, ffs. :<

Worst GL ever. :(

Is true.

Nuh-uh. :<



In other news: I'm scraping gold together to buy some looms for Project Gnome Invasion. Should've made my lock a gnome from the start, really. And you can never have too many locks.

Hey Seph :)  You quit in the same week that I joined, and I doubt it was a coincidence :P

I tried going back to an old MMO (EQ), but all MMOs from that generation seem sooooo dated and creaking now, and most seem to have tried patching various WoW elements over the top...unless you like Eve, in which case don't ever trade with Minxxie unless you're prepared to be swindled, beaten, molested and exploded.

Anyway, WoW's a lot better now than it was during the Cata horror show and there's generally a lot more to do; Pandaria looks great and I put it up there with Northrend (although I'd prefer it without all the eastern 'influence'), LFR means you can now faceroll an easy version of 25 man raids with pugs for epics, challenge modes are, well, challenging 5 mans, and scenarios are slowly living up to their potential (solo scenario loot runs are fun, and heroic timed scenario next patch).  Then there's pet battles/pet hording to slowly steal your life away.  PvP's still a steaming pile of shit though - it's getting better very slowly but will still need yet another overhaul when the next expansion rolls along, since the amount of instant cc and burst is pretty obnoxious right now.

P.P.S. Pandas should be turned into a collection of patchwork slippers, gloves and bags for they clearly serve no other valid use. We can use dwarves for the leathery soles of said shoes for they are equally, if not more, useless. Could they not have at least just got a Scottish guy to do their voices?! Oh, or an actual cockney to do the worgen voices rather than some sort of Dick van Dyke abomination?! Basically I'm saying gnomes are the only thing the Alliance have going for them! ;)

Male pandas are an abomination that should be rounded up and collectively blasted into the sun as soon as possible: they rate a fraction below dwarves on my hateability index (I drew a chart and everything).  Female pandas are awesome though, and I have one for my main!  If only gnomes could be shammies.  In fact, if it wasn't for gnomes I'd initiate some sort of forced guild-wide faction change...although if it wasn't for gnomes I probably would have quit back in 2010.

Worst GL ever. :(

Is true.

Also you can still get into the members' bit of the forum :P

Hello! I thought I'd weigh in here. I will even be unconventionally brief! (I cannot confirm this)

Like most people here I've quit wow - unsuccessfully - several times now. It always gets to that point where you just cannot be arsed to run another dungeon, fight another BG, gallivant around the same end zone, and then you realise that you're paying for that monotony. You quit.

Cue sense of relief, or reclaimed time, that feeling of "I don't need wow in my life", all that additional vitamin D you've produced from time outside. Awesome. Good for you! A month later you have a cursory look at the the forums, at a vid, the wow-eu forums if you're especially masochistic. More importantly you begin to look back with the delightfully rose-hued hindsight and remember all of the great times you had with guildies, and forget about everything else.

Next thing you know you've downloaded the client, subscribed - just for a month of course because, you know, it's temporary - and are running around with that old sense of enthusiam. "Oh, LFD, that's cool, that's novel, I like that. And changes to levelling as well - cross-realm zones, wow this is great!". But what's just arond that corner is the same old lack of gameplay interest that drove you away int he first instance.

So, my point at the end of the meander through my train of thought is that, WoW is WoW; it's the same as it's always been but occasionally gets spruced up and throws you a flirtatious wink at every expansion. The gameplay is, at its core, the same as it's always been. So what keeps pulling us back? The community. The social aspect. It always will because you cannot help but get closed to the mismatched band of internet chums you may never even have heard with own ears - or anyone else's ears! But you're attached to them nonetheless, and that's why we keep coming back. Well, that's why I keep coming back anyway.

P.S. Gnomes are awesome.

Oh, or an actual cockney to do the worgen voices rather than some sort of Dick van Dyke abomination?! Basically I'm saying gnomes are the only thing the Alliance have going for them! ;)

I reiterate: GNOMES ARE AWESOME.

Hello there Seph!

I don't think we've met, since I'm kinda new here. Anyway, I'm Morph, pleasure to meet you (um... sort of?) :) Here's my convoluted 2 cents on the subject, if you're interested. I also quit WoW, around last summer or so, but came back to try out the 10 day free MoP trial. And I'm really glad I did, mostly because I came across this awesome community of like-minded rapscallions and misfits, and immediately felt very welcomed and comfortable with being myself around others. Erm, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, pandas! Who doesn't like pandas (apart from Mer ;D)? Well, if you do PvP, then it's a whole 'nother ballgame. It's pretty hard to find something cute and cuddly when it's ramming a fist down your throat in an attempt to pull out your spine.

The questlines in Pandaland however are fun, IMO, and I really enjoyed them. Most of them anyway. The dailies can get a bit taxing, but there's really no need to do those if you don't feel like it. Can't say much about any instances, since I've only done a couple of dungeons and one raid so far (with guildies of course), but so far I've been really impressed. The new battlegrounds are also cool, and a little breath of fresh air compared to the older ones. And the landscapes? Even on my craptastic lappy and the medium-to-good graphic settings they're really breathtaking. Again, these are all just my personal views on the expansion, but I can highly recommend for you to check it out and see it for yourself if you have the chance.

Oh yeah, the only real gripe I can think of right now is the leveling, which DOES take forever. I was also going to point out they're about to reduce the xp needed for the push to 90, but looks like Faust beat me to it... by two whole days. Serves me right for not visiting the forums that often.  :'(

Cheers, hope to see you in-game some day! And sorry for the mess.

Seph! \o/  How've ya been?! :D

I quit just before MoP came out, because I wasn't looking forward to pandas (I don't like pandas :() but recently I got sucked back into the game. I played around with an anonymous warlock for a bit (they can have green fire now; GREEN FIRE!) and found that draintanking is a thing again. Love it. There's more people in lower level zones now, too, because of server sharing. I usually don't really interact, but it's nice to just see people around. :)

For Paranoid, I grabbed my priest, which was sitting at 85, and dove into MoP content. I like it, but leveling up takes FOREVER. Which is probs why I haven't logged in yet this week... ::)

If I have time this weekend, I'll level my Paranoid lock a little further (she's 81 I think). I haven't done any dungeons or BGs yet.

The guild is awful, nobody ever logs on; Mipsy really ran it into the ground. Can't believe I let him take over. Worst GL ever. :(

(Guild's great, loads of nice people on, more raids (old and new) than you can shake a stick at, Mips = Best GL Ever. :P)

There's only one downside to the guild as it is now: you're not there, Seph! :(
