I played as a somewhat Dark Side female Powertech DPS. I was trying for the consummate professional at first, but slipped over to pure brute Dark Side for a few planets.If I had been in charge of SWTOR development (and had unlimited time and money), I would have scrapped the Bounty Hunter story and sent it back for a complete rewrite.

    My necromancer in Guild Wars 2 is everything. I have stuck by and loved my necromancer despite all it’s problems and inefficiencies. It gets even worse, I have often played a condition-based necromancer in dungeons and open world events. I’ve always hoped that being at the bottom, the only way to go is up, or in a twist, possibly to something more necro-y, the revenant. The reaper elite specialization gives the feeling that it was designed with a serious amount of attention. It is a kit that feels cohesive to turn the necromancer into a cleaving, controlling powerhouse. The…

    This started out as a comment on my previous blog post, but ended up getting too long for a comment, so I made it into another blog post. Michael commented that "Tobold, it's not that I at all disagree, it's that I question the point of continuing to talk about it.". I believe that this touches a rather fundamental and recurring problem of all forms of public writing, including blogging and journalism: Should you engage with and write about people and organizations you strongly disagree with, or should you ignore them?I've always been with Edmund Burke on this one, see title.

There are minor spoilers for that part of the story.This one, by the same author, covers the prologue in Hutta. It does spoil the twist in the Hutta storyline, though, so you may want to avoid it if you're planning on playing an Agent in the near future.

    There has been a lot of controversy over the design of the upcoming Legendary Rings in patch 3.2. Here is the current ability of the healing ring:Use: Awakens the powers of Sanctus rings worn by you and your allies, granting (772/100)% Versatility for 15 sec. For the duration of this effect, all damage and healing received is divided evenly among empowered allies. (2 min shared cooldown)As you can see, invoking your ring also triggers the rings of your fellow raid members. This is pretty controversial, because different classes might like to trigger their ring at different times. As…
  • WoW's Subscription Drop

    8 May 2015 | 1:59 pm
    After spiking up to 10 million subscribers last quarter, WoW has fallen back down to 7.1 million subscribers. As usual, everyone in the community takes this as evidence that whatever new element in Warlords of Draenor that they dislike is ruining the game. (I blame Active Mitigation personally, clearly inconsistent tanking is driving people away.)I think the most likely explanation is that the Warlords of Draenor nostalgia trip plus the 10th Anniversary got a lot of old players to give the expansion a shot. They played through the expansion, then realized that WoW is more or less the same…

    Because all of your experiences happen from your perspective, it is common to generalize and assume that others’ experiences are more or less like yours. Over time one learns that this is often not the case, from different life circumstances to different preferences to different brain configurations and chemistry. This last is the subject of one of the most interesting discussions on the internet, where some people have well known but uncommon mental experiences (synesthesia, photographic memory) and others explain their realizations that either they have experiences most people do not…

It also was from a festival that happened almost exactly a year ago, the Festival of the Four Winds. I personally love the Labyrinthine Cliffs. It is beautiful, and fun. I personally wish it was a great city hub. My heart tells me that we probably won’t get the Labyrinthine Cliffs tomorrow.

    While in a gaming funk this year, I tried a variety of idle games. They can be mechanically interesting, and they scratch that MMO Achiever itch and help you overcome it by taking it to its logical extreme. “RPG” has come to mean “character advancement” and that familiar treadmill of leveling up by playing a poor combat mini-game to do the same thing with higher numbers and a more garish color scheme. MMOs have done a great job of pushing this to narrative irrelevancy through static theme park worlds that you cannot change because all the other paying customers need to…

Keep it to your level or lower to avoid damage. Level up to 2 and start stepping on bigger monsters. Repeat to 5.

    As a WoW blogger, I am contractually obligated to talk about the drop in WoW subscription numbers. I guess it could be worse. Were I a sports blogger, I would be contractually obligated to talk about Tom Brady’s cheating balls, and really, nobody wants to hear that.I’m sure you’ve heard by now that WoW is back down to 7 million or so subs and that basically everyone they gained at the start of Warlords has once again left. This used to be the kind of news that I took seriously and worried about. What was happening? What would Devs do about it? Would WoW even be around in a year or two?

  • WoW Tokens

    The WoW token has changed how I view and play the game. When I first heard of the WoW token, I thought I’d be a gold buyer. I’ve never been particularly good at making WoW gold and the idea of spending $20 to get 100k gold (the number being speculated at the time) sounded really good. There were so many things I would buy myself from pets to mounts to heirlooms.Then the reality hit. The token started at 30k gold and now hovers around 23-24k. I would never have 100k gold to buy one, but 24k gold? That seemed so much more doable, in fact, it almost seemed reasonable to think I could make…

  • Outside battery limits

    Tobold Stoutfoot
    22 May 2015 | 4:18 am
    In engineering there is an important distinction of things being either "inside battery limits" or "outside battery limits". On an engineering plan there is often a dotted line showing that "battery limit", which is the border between "the plant" and "the rest of the world". I think that concept needs more attention when talking about games, especially multiplayer online games. The limits are often not clearly defined, and that leads to dangerous situations.In Canada a 17-year old League of Legends players has plead guilty to a range of charges: "According to what [prosecutor] Bauer told the…

  • Neverending content

    Tobold Stoutfoot
    18 May 2015 | 7:39 pm
    On MMO-Champion I stumbled upon an interview with ex-WoW developer Ghostcrawler who says: "Neverending content leads to making things so difficult you can't progress or asking you to run the same content 100 times.". I feel that is very true. Nevertheless I don't think that is an unsolvable problem, because you can design content in a way that running it a 100 times isn't boring.For example look at games like Tetris or Candy Crush Saga (which will now come preinstalled with Windows 10). These are clearly games in which players run the same content far more than 100 times. But because there…

Of course now somebody stealing my laptop could theoretically access my account, but I'm pretty certain that laptop thieves and WoW account thieves are two very different types of criminals with not much overlap.In any case, even at home I am happy that I don't have to enter my password and authenticator code…

This, my friends, is Shade of Aran.  For my money it’s probably the best boss fight in the game.  It’s hectic, it’s fast-paced, there are a million things to remember, everyone’s running around like crazy, and it felt amazing when the whole raid was in sync and you managed to successfully beat him. He also comes with some seriously fantastic lore.  Imagine being Medivh’s dad,…

And, truth be told, it’s really not too many alts.  In fact, I think it’s just about… the right amount of alts.  Not too many, but enough for some variety.  (Well, I mean, unless you start throwing in my level 91 hunter and my level 87 hunter and my level 41 hunter, BUT ANYWAY) The game is really fun lately.  I’m so happy.  I love this stupid…

While chain letters are the worst, community memes are kinda rad which is why instead of publishing that upcoming post on Valve’s zomg-Vive, I am going to respond to Sig’s questionnaire and challenge seven next bloggers to tackle my own list further below! In case you’ve never run into Sig by the way, that’s probably because he hardly ever blogs (slacker!) but he’s a great presence on twitter and…

  • Going back to Azeroth

    Count this as a warm-up post… So I have been ocassionally visit Azeorth a bit recently. Although I am still busy around like a headless chicken, I really need sometime to let my brain take a break. Outside azeroth, there are much thing to do, eg. relative to visit, excerise, task planned to be done, pet project to finish… but sometime you just want to take some time off those brain twisting task and take a break. As Gevlon defined, I am probably of the casual player group, it’s really no point for me to keep up with the endgame stuff, since probably cannot follow up the main…

    Well kids, it’s true: I’ve been here for years. So, Zekta and I had a conversation recently. It went like this: ZEKTA: “Please come back! The Blogosphere is at an all-time low! They need you!” Or, he said: “Wait, why are you texting me at 1am? I have to work tomorrow. What… okay, you can write again for P3P!” So… yeah. I’m not back playing WoW yet. BUT, I think I will be soon. I have ideas. Indeed, I have ideas that I want to write about! And, in posts that will follow, I’ll tell you all about it, including which text above actually…

    The Story… I never make up my mind to say good bye here, just get posted in lower frequency while BigJimm was still working hard on sharing his thoughts (I still appreciate that and miss him). I stopped logging into Azeroth for a year since then, due to some personal matters I shyed to share before, but after reading Gnomeaggedon’s post on Movember recently, I decided to share it with you. One of my family members was having a mental difficulties, and the whole family was spending much effort on wrestling it. Since World of Warcraft was one of the escapes, I decided to stop encouraging…

    I wanted to add a quick note, then start back with the original topics that I started.  I am sorry for the absence.  A cascade of things happened to prevent me from being able to post like I would have liked too. I will start at the beginning. Step 1 – The OMG: I normally write posts while I am on a plane traveling from one locale to another.  I have made plenty of trips since my last post, but I had one major problem.  That’s step one if I remember…Admit you have a problem.  Well, here goes…My MacBook Air that I travel and run my WoW Gold Making business with…

  • How To Earn More Gold From Daily Quests in Heroes of the Storm

    Heroes of The Storm Daily Quest Gold StrategyGold Gain in Heroes of the StormThe amount of time you will spend grinding for gold earnings to unlock heroes in Heroes of the Storm will be insane if you plan to spend no money on unlocking heroes. As I discussed in my previous post on Grinding For Gold In Heroes of the Storm, there is a nice chunk of easily obtainable gold that is earned from both leveling up your account and leveling each hero to level 5. However, once those 1 time gold gains are exhausted, you are left with only per match gold rewards and daily quest completion as your two…

    I like most players in World of WarCraft can appreciate the details that are placed into the game. However, I fail to see any value in recent changes to the Gnome Character Selection Screen Changes In 6.2. I like the fact that Blizzard is putting emphasis on the details and … Continue reading The PostGnome Character Selection Screen Changes In 6.2 %%appeared first on WarCraft Pressby Kombear

    The Blizzard developers wrote a “6.2 Dev Watercooler” to give us some information on itemization that’s coming. Having read it, it seems for the most part to be positive changes. With that in mind I can also see how these changes could potentially be ugh for players. However, Ill also … Continue reading The Post6.2 Dev Watercooler %%appeared first on WarCraft Pressby Kombear

    When I started World of WarCraft a little while ago, I noticed I had a download in the background. Now I am not 100% certain that its the 6.2 patch but I’d bet money it is given how large the download is at over 2GB’s. I would suspect we will … Continue reading The PostWoW Patch 6.2 Download %%appeared first on WarCraft Pressby Admin
