Because of the magnitude of this change, we're retroactively applying this philosophy to items in Mists of Pandaria.
Greg Mee's insight:

This is kinda cool.

 

No more having to keep separate sets of armor for DPS, Tanking, Healing. How about for PvP?

Pegged for a 2016 release and directed by David Bowie's son, Warcraft is the video game movie adaptation everyone is excited about.
Greg Mee's insight:

A detailed (ahem,) thoughtful (cough, cough) analysis of how the WoW movie is likely to appear, if it stays true to the game.

The joke is on women in Blizzard's April Fool's gag - Joystiq

The joke is on women in Blizzard's April Fool's gag - Joystiq | GotWarcraft and The World of Warcraft | Scoop.it
The joke is on women in Blizzard's April Fool's gag Joystiq But Blizzard doesn't have a particularly spotless record, with sexist NPCs, more sexist NPCs, sexual dimorphism, the lack of women in game lore, and the fact that Aggra won't be heading to...
Greg Mee's insight:

One could predict how the comments would go from reading the article. And, what do you know, Joystiq closed the comments down due to their becoming "toxic."

 

I didn't get the joke, so thought it was pointless. Apparently some did and, obviously, others were offended.

 

Yeah, Bliz blew it. They easily could (or should) have done the same with, for example, the Male Blood Elf model. Or just completely avoided the "It's a Trap!!!" danger of doing it in the first place.

 

Of course, since the Dev team is probably 99% male and with a player base that's 90% male, it may never have occurred to them.

 

Perhaps more women need to get themselves into video game development.

I'm so bored with the Horde

I'm so bored with the Horde | GotWarcraft and The World of Warcraft | Scoop.it
WoW Insider
Greg Mee's insight:

They start off by saying...

 

"This isn't a rant about how the Horde is bad, or how you should feel bad for playing them, or anything. If you like playing Horde, I'm not arguing that you're wrong to do so. I know that's a subjective thing, and some folks just plain like specific Horde races better. This is more about how, after Mists of Pandaria, I'm completely exhausted as a player with Horde stories and the Horde/Alliance conflict. I'm not inherently opposed to Horde/Alliance conflict. In fact, I think it made Mists of Pandaria a very strong expansion, with a strong and interesting story. I especially liked patch 5.1, and played both the Horde and Alliance storylines.

And frankly, that was the last time any of my Horde characters got any serious play."

 

No, this is where the Horde gets interesting. They have to rebuild, come to grips with a new leader, and deal with the hate of a word that blames "the Horde" for Garrosh's excesses. With the latter, of course, much of the Horde willingly participated, there being little or no option to do otherwise.

 

Having the Alliance come out swinging, driven by a slightly mad Ms. Proudmore, might be interesting.

 

It has the possibility for a lot more story-telling and development of the story lines for all the Horde races. I don't think the latter will really happen, but we can hope. The excuse to do it is there.

Blizzard scores a victory against patent troll Worlds, Inc. - Joystiq

Blizzard scores a victory against patent troll Worlds, Inc. - Joystiq | GotWarcraft and The World of Warcraft | Scoop.it
Blizzard scores a victory against patent troll Worlds, Inc.
Greg Mee's insight:

So I think the idea here is that you claim (or file) a patent on an idea that already exists, then due companies using the idea for royalties.

 

I think that's what a "patent troll" is.The basic idea is to get rich hoping the other guy won't fight and will decide to settle. Or that the court will agree with the troll, which amounts to the same thing, a big cash windfall.

 

We little guys couldn't afford the attack, but Bliz got the court to agree with its position and squished the troll.

Greg Mee's insight:

I don't know whether this spot has been fixed yet, but if it's still good (and I will be looking it up) then any character capable of grinding multiple mobs at a time should be able to do this.

 

Throughout its run there have been places like this in WoW, with lots of mobs and high spawn rates. Perfect for area effect grinding.

World Of Warcraft: Warlords Of Draenor Pre-Purchase, Character Boost Now ...
Cinema Blend
In order to download and play Warlords of Draenor when it's available, you need to have WoW as well as the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
Greg Mee's insight:

Yes, you can buy it now and upgrade a character now.

 

If the character is at least level 60 you will get at least one profession boosted to 600.

 

You will get a full set of 486 (483?) gear and be teleported to the Timeless Isle, where you can work for slightly higher level gear.

 

And you won't have to deal with leveling that toon that you really want to play at high level but really don't want to actually level. ;)

Greg Mee's insight:

I gathered up some of the stuff people are saying about the level 90 character boost that's coming with Warlords of Draenor.

 

It ranged from "it's the end of WoW!!!!" to "seems like a pretty good idea to me." I guess that's kindof the same response to pretty much everything Blizzard does...

World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor Expansion Will be a Massive Hit ... - The Epoch Times | GotWarcraft and The World of Warcraft | Scoop.it
World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor Expansion Will be a Massive Hit ...
Greg Mee's insight:

*Will Warlords of Draenor Expansion Will be a Massive Hit?*

I think so. Epoch interviews a Dev on the subject. I found this little bit to be really interesting:

The expansion, which is set for a release date sometime this year, starts off with orcs charging through the Dark Portal to invade the current day Azeroth, with all the modern World or Warcraft aspects but without the blood curses and other demon legacies.

“What you see is a scene of just fifty thousands, ten thousand orcs, just orcs everywhere, war machines,” Afrasiabi explained. This will all be part of a major pre-launch event for players.

Greg Mee's insight:

I admit it, I've use the fast flying mounts (I always get the max speed flying) to just fly over areas. And I use the flight system when I want to do something else while traveling.

 

I DO like to explore. but there has to be something worth finding, rather than just another bunch of spiders. Bliz did a good job at making the Timeless Isle worth exploring. If that can carry some of that over to the new world then I won't miss fling. Well, not toooo much.

Greg Mee's insight:

This will be something of a game changer:

 

Removed Silence effects from interrupts. Silence effects still exist, but are never attached to an interrupt.Removed all Disarms. Reduced the number of Diminishing Returns (DR) categories. All Roots now share the same DR category. Exception: Roots on Charge-type abilities have no DR category, but have a very short duration instead. All Stuns now share the same DR category. All Incapacitate (sometimes called "mesmerize") effects now share the same DR category and have been merged with the Horror DR category. Removed the ability to make cast-time CC spells instant with a cooldown. Removed many CC spells entirely, and increased the cooldowns and restrictions on others. Pet-cast CC is more limited, and in many cases has been removed. Cyclone can now be dispelled by immunities and Mass Dispel. PvP trinkets now grant immunity to reapplication of an effect from the same spell cast when they break abilities with persistent effects, like Solar Beam. Long fears are now shorter in PvP due to the added benefit of a fear changing the players position.
