I felt like adding a bit of fun today!

Pinguins!
Was chatting with a GM and after the regular “anything else I can do for you”, I thought to try out the sense of humor of this GM.

Knock knock?
Not the best joke maybe, but a nice GM to talk with (we started with an serious issue btw), and I never managed before to convince a GM to a knock knock joke 🙂

Have fun,

As all of you should now by now, Bliz announced the new looks for the Bear Model.

I like them! They look more flashy,  detailed and above all more druid-like. The  old bear felt a bit like you came from the woods with an unknown disease in your skin which made your mouth stay open at all occasions…

What I like even more is that they are linked to your caster looks.  Yes, I am the rare druid who actually doesn’t mind this. I have to admit my 1st reaction was a slight disappointment “but what if I want a white bear and no white hair?” /sob. But once I thought about it for 5seconds longer I realized I would hate it if it wasn’t linked to your caster form.  Your forms should still be YOU, it doesn’t make sense if you are a druid with green hair, to turn into a white bear.  Really, it doesn’t!
Your animal forms are a representation of you, which means  you in your caster form.

You tend to forgot the whole – druids are individuals too-thing, after being 1-big-mass for so long,  I think we should rejoice with our new more personalized looks.
Can’t wait till tree and moonkin forms get their change, I won’t hold my breathe until that happens tho…

An interesting question, how do Bliz employee’s call each other in the office?

A 23pages long thread (at moment of writing) does deserve a spotlight, especially considering the amount of  blue reply’s

A few of the hightlights:
Re: What does Zarhym call Bornakk?

Q u o t e:
“Hey Zarhym, how about lunch?”
“I can’t make any promises, but the prospect of lunch is definately something I am considering and I will get back to you when I know more.”

lolThat reminds me of an email we received yesterday. One of our web producers mentioned in this email regarding the deployment of the Battle.net Account System that the forums would be taken out of maintenance “soon.” I mentioned to Nethaera that I doubt players would understand that we even “soon” each other internally some times. :p

Actually I enjoyed the  post by Beddict < Noble Blade > more then the reply 🙂
I suggest you head over to the thread, it’s easy amusement.

The topic itself deserves a bit more attention.
Just before the expansion came out, I met several guys of my guild. At the start of the evening it was a bit akward, we were  introducing ourselves, but no one was sure what name to use.. RL-name? GL-name?
In the end we used both, but the later it got.. the more we got into the GL- names.  From a few I remember their RL-names, but for most of the others.. (sorry guys) I have no clue! I have several phone numbers of guildies, and all of them are saved under their character name ..
It seems the name you attached to a person 1st time you meet, is the most dominant one.
If you know someone irl; you picture that person playing a certain character.  In ” public” game you might refer to him/her with a nick, but in whisper/party you probably use the RL-name.
On the other hand if you met persons in-game; but never (or later) met them irl, their in-game name is what you associate that person with. Their RL- name hold way less significance.

The 2nd one for today is about appearance, a rather important factor in game, at least for me:)

Re: Ulduar Gear – Lackluster at BEST.

This is really an ongoing debate. Itemization is truly a very tricky subject, particularly when talking about non-tier Ulduar armor. It’s a balancing act. We have to maintain a certain amount of solidarity in each role to make certain that the pieces given do not mis-match and add up to an ugly whole. On the other hand, when we do this, we lose diversity, but in so doing, we maintain a good solid well polished look. In the past, players have been very vocal about the contrast in gear and the less-than-optimal visual appeal of matching particular set and non-set items. Our solution to this has been to make certain that we match these sets in the most appropriate fashion.

One part of me is celebrating the fact the items all look similar, the other part of me beliefs it is horrible. I am really torn here. Already I am not happy with the color scheme they chose for the set items. (change them around!), and some of the non-set items (like phaelia’s one!) have a way better resto druid feeling over them. (she deserves that, but well;p)
I will never choose looks over upgrade, but looks do matter!
Of course I already have several town sets, but bank space is sadly not endless, and why wouldn’t you want to show off you got a set item really?

I guess time will learn how this will work out, will the colors of the different items make it mis-matched anyways? Will everyone look the same and result into one big homogeneous mass? Will it work out well and will we all forget about the whole issue and praise Blizz with their wisdom?

I been slacking, badly.  To make up for that I invented a new Categorie: The Blue Heroes. *no I can’t pick Blizzard Blue

We all know them, we can not resist the urge to read any thread they posted in, we have at least 1 favorite blue tracker link.   But do we all have the time to keep up with them?

Instead of doing it the completly ” cheap way” (=linking the resto related blue remark + adding a short remark), or the ” generous way”  (= linking resto related stuff + adding very sensible, well thought out comments), I choose the ” weird but simple way” .
I will offer you the blue post that are diffrent! They offer fun, or usulessness, or simply a smiley 🙂

Nr1 of today, not on nr 1 because of the blue reply, but genious title.  You do not often get creativity on the official forums..
Re: Sloth, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Lust, Wrath

Q u o t e:

Q u o t e:
Going to have to say that I doubt very much that anybody discusses class mechanics/balance with an agenda motivated by gluttony or lust.

Maybe just briefly each year at Blizzcon when the devs hit on the hotter players.

Nr2, also this one attracted me by title,  it’s  just too silly:
Gnome Healer

First of all, how DARE you think gnomes can ever be good healers?! They die.. alot, they made to fail. The get eaten for breakfast by the horde.  The only thing that make me love gnomes, is their /giggle.  Once they do that I just melt.  Bloody cute sound..
Anyways, the the post:

Re: Gnome Healers
Gnomes are creatures of destruction.

Re: Gnome Healers
Q u o t e:
But… we’re cute.

Everyone knows cute heals.
——————————————————————————–
If devours souls is the same as cute, then yes, you are correct.
——————————————————————————–
><

Bornakk, you’re going to learn that Gnomes hurt. And yes, it’s the BAD hurt.
——————————————————————————–

No worries, I already plan to buy epic shin-guards for BlizzCon.
——————————————————————————–
Q u o t e:
You know, they’d pick on you less if you picked on them less.

Aww, who am I kidding. Too much fun to leave them be, amirite?

Thank you folks, this was the Blue Heroes for today!

For those actually seeing my secret messages ;p (I should work at Bliz!), I do realize this post and prob the next ones following in the Categorie arent the top notch quality I wish for.  I do this to keep myself in the habit of writing and posting, not matter how many other things I have on my programm.  I belief practise makes perfect, so I need to practise alot! ) Besides, I love to talk about nothing
