    It is well known within the smoking community that electronic cigarettes are highly valued since they are clean and release a nicotine vapor that does not harm the lungs. It is quite easy to purchase a broad variety of well-designed and fully functional electronic cigarettes from online stores, and this is in fact one of the best ways to purchase them. In addition to purchasing an electronic cigarette, you will also need to buy replacement cartridges and spare batteries when the batteries run out. Disposable or Non-Disposable Disposable electronic cigarettes are made to be thrown away…

    25 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    I don't think it's a secret that I'm a fan of the Old Gods -- I like writing about them, I like coming up with crazy theories about them, and I just like the whole vibe of terrifying beasts of darkness lurking below the earth. Needless to say, when I ran across this machinima from earlier this year by Mooclucking, I was absolutely delighted. Old Gods Are Everywhere is a pretty self-explanatory title, but the machinima surprised me with its delivery -- several of the jokes had me laughing almost immediately from the visuals. And since we're in full swing of Hallow's End, it seemed only…

    Earlier this month, Blizzard released a behind the scenes look at Lords of War, the latest short series from the team that brought us The Burdens of Shaohao. Although that behind the scenes glimpse was pretty good, it focused mainly on the story of the short films, the ideas behind the process. Yesterday, another Behind the Scenes featurette was added -- this time, featuring Senior Illustrator Laurel Austin, the artist behind all of those gorgeous moving frames. Austin goes through the process of character design for the shorts and the challenges of bringing the various warlords to life. This…

In addition to the costume updates, a new wallpaper has been added to the fan art section.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) is answering all kinds of questions today. Patch 6.0 brought several new things to do, but I've been finding myself revisiting old dungeons more than anything, these past couple of weeks. In particular, both mounts in ZG have eluded me for far too long, and I'm hunkering down to do some serious farming and add them to my collection. With the new troll models, it's like ZG has gotten an update all on its own. Kinda cool, really!

    Say hello to the Guild Masters. Today I wanted to take a moment to announce the start of a new blog project. The idea came about after browsing through the Warcraft Guild and Leadership forums. Ran into questions and problems that guild leaders and officers were struggling with. And you know what I realized? There is no single place for guild leaders and officers to ask questions or gain support for common issues. How should a guild leader handle drama? How does an officer say no? How do you “raid lead”? What elements constitute a solid guild website? Thus, the Guild Masters formed. I’m…

Now I can relax some and experiment with other decks and classes before the next great hunter nerf. The deck I used was the one I linked to in my last post for Hunters. I can now begin focusing on trying my hand at tournaments. I was quite surprised to see that Legend players make up a really small percentage of the population. I guess that makes sense with around 20 million players but how many of them engage in the ladder, I wonder? I’m not a fan of…

So I let it run all night, and tonight I was going to check it out again.  Oh, about 5pm or so I fired it up and found the queue.  I was 3,700, give or take a few hundred, next in line to join the server.  They were all red, and…

    Spinks has a interesting post up about learning content in MMOs:I feel increasingly that random group content in MMOs is an anti-learning environment. If people zone in with someone who is learning the fight, they’re likely to be disappointed because it will take longer. They don’t want to take ‘the hit’ of being part of someone else’s learning experience.This reminds me of one of the biggest differences between Japanese and North American culture in FFXIV. FFXIV has two forms of organizing group content with strangers:Duty Finder - This is the random group finder. You sign up, and…

As they see it, computers started being marketed towards boys, driving the girls out.

You survive the betrayal and ultimately defeat your master. This seems like a very traditional part of being Sith.Except that's not quite how the Sith tradition goes.

    It's almost time for a new expansion in The Old Republic, so I've finally finished the Makeb story line on a Republic character. I completed it on my Jedi Knight (Sentinel).The new GSI buff stations that boost your gear level make Makeb much easier. I once accidentally logged out in the middle of a mission far away from a station, and when I logged back in I did not have the buff. The rest of the mission was much harder. I had to switch from a dps companion to a healing companion to finish it.It's pretty clear that the Republic story line should be done first. It comes earlier, and a lot of…

    Featured review on the Steam page for Eador: Masters of the Broken World: “Eador’s design is worth your time – a testament to its strength.” If you follow the link to the review, you see that is the second half of a sentence. “Despite its often-disastrous implementation…” It seems like a fair assessment. The ideas underlying the game are great. The implementation is poor, from the frustrating controls to the useless battle difficulty estimates to the strong randomness that can swamp strategy and leads many players to recommend save scumming. “Worth your…

Start, maybe a tutorial, good luck. And you know I’m all about the new player experience; creating an unwelcoming experience for new players is just poisoning your game, making sure it dies except for a dozen grognards who populate the last forum about the game and curse out new players looking for help as lazy idiots who should go play Angry Birds because they’re not willing to put in the time to learn how to play…

    The first thing that strikes you about the 5th Edition classes is how many there are. As with races, 5th Edition has embraced the expanded core, with barbarians, sorcerers, and warlocks all in the base PHB. You expect editions to add and subtract from the core classes as experiments did or did not work, but 5th has leaned towards as many “add”s as possible. Previous posts in this series have mentioned my brothers’ reactions; they started back when there were four core classes, and they seemed ambivalent between whether these were a variety of exciting options or an excess of…

    The corner of a difficulty curve often becomes a quitting point, partly because it is a change in the game, partly in the way an extreme one feels like a betrayal of the relationship the game had been establishing, and sometimes because it indicates the developers are not very good. While Portal perhaps goes too far in making the first half+ of the game a gradual tutorial, it does have that transition into “and here are some harder puzzles, and now you’re on your own.” Do you have a favorite example of a game that says, “here are some tutorials, and now we’re…

    This week the gaming news are full of yet another death threat story. Only this time it was a man who received the threat, Gabe Newell. And the threat wasn't made anonymously, but by a game developer unhappy with a technical flaw on the Steam page of his recently released game. Now Gabe could have called the police, as death threats are illegal in many jurisdictions, being a form of coercion. Instead he pulled out the ban hammer and kicked the game in question from Steam. The dev quit and I'd guess his career is finished. But apart from being a funny story about human stupidity, I think this…

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:54 pm
    Azuriel argues that things contain a mythical factor called "quality", that reviews should somehow reflect that mythical quality, and that consumers are all idiots because they rarely choose the best thing available. I believe that consumers are quite rational, and that they make choices on a highly complicated multi-factor analysis. Thus McDonald's isn't more popular than other burger joints because they make better hamburgers. It is that in the needs of the consumer the quality of the hamburger plays just a small role. As long as the hamburger is sufficiently good, and not more unhealthy…

    I am generally interested in MMORPGs which have a strong virtual world element, where I can have my own property with actual activities, and where there is a player-run economy with crafting. Given that ArcheAge has all this, that people repeatedly tell me that at least at the start I could be safe from ganking, and that it is possible to try the game for free, I should be all over this. But then the kind of people who tell me that PvP isn't so bad in ArcheAge are the same kind of people who think that Darkfail is a game perfectly suitable for carebears like me.

Sure, there will be some new content. But…

    Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants. Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of being stuffy even with the windows open, and the walls and pews were lined with assorted paladins, clerics, priests, and a small gaggle of nervous-looking people, several of whom bore a striking resemblance to the young man standing in the middle of the room. Aely had known for six months that he was ready for this. He knew pretty much everything she could teach…

    So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main right now, so I thought … what about a Horde hunter? They’re fun to level, easy to work with, I know the class… And then I upgraded both my accounts to preorder for Warlords, and realized I’d have an auto-90 for my second account. Which has only low level Horde characters on it. (My primary account auto-90 went to Annorah, my Shaman, and I used one for…

    The cathedral bells stop ringing overnight, except for chiming the hours. Three bell strikes, and Angoleth padded softly around another corner of the Cathedral District, staying carefully in the shadows. Trained ears picked up Mogget’s soft breathing – nearly inaudible as he slunk along the other side of the street. They made their way past the Argent Dawn buildings, shuttered and dark, and into the main square, the only sounds the gentle splashing from the fountains. One of Officer Pomeroy’s boys stood in the square as well, unaware of his audience as he shifted idly from one foot to…

    (Written by Jolly, Tarquin, and Annalea) The highlands of Lordaeron were not for the faint of heart; be it the putrescence of the Scourge’s long-lingering remnant, or the rock-strewn hills and valleys that made farmers out of only the most hardy and stubborn of peoples, the very land itself was a fine depiction of the people that had long inhabited it. The clouds that had moved in threatened to wash the land in dread, with Thorim’s distant rumbling echoing the sentiment. Coniferous and deciduous trees alike fought branch-to-branch in tight knots dotted throughout the ups and downs of the…

    One thing that has changed dramatically in gaming while I've been distracted has been the rise in livestreaming of games, and Twitch in particular. And with it came a new opportunity for trolling – but with horrible consequences: DeQuincy, LA — What many teenagers these days are considering a harmless prank, has landed one online gamer in more trouble than he could have ever imagined. In a Louisiana courtroom today, 15-year-old Paul Horner broke down in tears after a judge found the young man guilty on two counts of domestic terrorism and was sentenced to twenty-five years to life…

    The problem with dropping out of WoW life for about 18 months is that certain things have just gone away. Like my guild, for example – but more on that later. Another thing that went away completely was Google Reader – killed off last year by the Big G. Luckily, I had the foresight to take a few minutes to dump out my RSS subscriptions via Google Takeout, and I had them safely stored away in my Dropbox.

    The WoD cinematic is really good. As a semi-retired lore nerd I love seeing this stuff, just as much as I love seeing the Mage cast a Sheep spell in the first trailer, or Arthas summon an undead dragon. The MoP trailer did what it had to do (show us the Pandaren) and did it in a way which was fun. It certainly makes me think this is Orcs vs Humans … of Warcraft. Non-serious aside – It does feel like a story set to make us like killing Orcs, and as an Alliance player I don’t really care if that is the wrong view. Orcs have proven themselves weak willed, power hungry, and…

It took my guild of jolly freeform raiders several wipenights to get a team of 20 people fully accustomed to the drill, something that players already need to learn during the dungeon attunement: individual performance matters. Even if some veteran 5mans get easier over time for a seasoned group of well-geared folk, many fights require every member in the party to be familiar with fight mechanics.

Wildstar the great AAA-hope of 2014, the polished, cartoony WoW-esque holy trinity, theme-park MMO that appeared different yet similar enough to accommodate the mainstream. I agree with Rohan that WS has a higher difficulty level than WoW, although the leveling process never struck me as hard or tedious on my Esper. WS is packed with some fun quests and a very linear, well-paced progression to level 50. I’d happily place bets on FFXIV:ARR being grindier than WS, only FFXIV is so…

    Australia getting our own Wow servers is somewhat big news. For years its what our Top Gamers have asked for. The extra 180-220 ms delay meant that we were worse off in PVP and when pushing the harder content. Oh it was only 180 – 220ms? It may not sound like much, and you don’t notice the difference in things like LFR, but it wasn’t just the ping – it was how smooth and consistent the connection was, and the priority our ISP’s gave to our gaming connections. Our own servers should improve the over all reliability of our connection, not just give us reduced lag.

    There’s a whole bag of controversy raging around the internet of late. Of subjectivity versus objectivity, of fact versus opinion, of divergence versus convergence. Who should write about games, what should they be allowed to say, what should even be considered as a game. There’s also been an incredible backlash that has pushed people out of gaming completely, and it’s been horrifying to watch. Anyone should be free to have an opinion on a game and share it publicly – you, me, anyone. The tools are cheap or free. Websites should also be free to hire who they want for those opinions.

    I have a concern, and it’s about the high price of MMO ‘founders packs.’ For a strong title that’s still early in development, it’s a great way to raise funds and bring in eager gamers to test the game out. But the status of being an early adopter comes with a cost, and it’s usually measured in dollars. I’ve seen studios charge as much as $150 to get into the alpha of a free-to-play title. Fundamentally, that feels wrong. With an unseen and un-previewed title, the risk for buyer’s remorse is huge. More importantly, however, I don’t think it’ll result in the right mix of…

  • Warlords of Draenor - The Iron Tide Pre-Patch is Here At Last!

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:21 am
    The time has finally arrived for the excitement and build up to the release of Warlords of Draenor, the pre-expansion patch a.k.a patch 6.0.2 and I have succumbed to the hype and re-subbed. Well, when I say re-subbed, I've bought a 30 day timecard so I can decide whether I even want to buy the expansion.Over the summer, I've spent a couple of months in Wildstar and more recently, a week or two in ArcheAge but although I've enjoyed them, neither has the initial addictiveness that World of Warcraft had for me way back in 2009 when I first started playing.

  • Wildstar - Gold Making & Leveling in a New MMO!

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Well, it's been quite some time since I posted here but I've been suffering a bad case of the blerghs as well as having yet another operation but in between times, I've been playing the newest MMO on the block, Wildstar. I'm learning the markets and I'll be posting some gold making stuff here soon.I'm thoroughly enjoying Wildstar but I'm so slow at leveling, it's taking me forever. Apart from being distracted by the Auction House and Commodities Exchange (like the true AH Addict I am), I have been struggling a bit to find things on the map.Now don't get me wrong, I've never run out of quests…
  • Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes & Gold Making

    5 Apr 2014 | 4:57 am
    Very late on Thursday night here in the UK, Blizzard finally released a huge post of information relating to the Warlords of Draenor expansion. The Alpha patch notes in their entirety can be found on the Battlenet site but be warned, they are lengthy, fairly detailed in some areas and very likely to cause some upset, especially with Class changes. This is a gold making blog however so I've been following my fellow gold makers, reading up on various bits in the patch notes and have a few comments to make myself.GlyphsThe main point that struck me (and many of my fellow gold bloggers like…
  • Saturday Celebrations - Dysenigrate, Hyjal-US

    11 Mar 2014 | 7:55 am
    So this week, we have a success story from Dysenigrate, one of my Clan mates in the Eviscerated Clan in Clash of Clans and I owe him an apology and to everyone for being so late! This post was due 1st March & I'm only just now remembering to do it! In my defence, I missed a few other things too as I've been super busy at work, preparing for our financial year end and also getting ready to fly out to see my fella! He's still asleep right now so I've pinched his PC to get this post out! lolIf you'd like to submit your own gold making Milestone Interview, instructions & more details…
