Online Gaming For The Win
Used to play a WoW paladin for years. Now looking at what will be the new trends in online gaming.

"Ben Shaw has had one hell of a last few years. Serving overseas, the former British Army soldier was wounded by a roadside explosive in Iraq, and as a result had to have both of his eyes removed. Yet does that stop him playing World of Warcraft?"
Read the amazing (and beautiful) story of Ben and Owen (a Death Knight called Davidian), his "guide dog" in the game.
I've downed Deathwing this weekend.
I'm not trying to brag as I realize thousands of players if not millions probably have. That's apparently how easy WoW has become. It took me sweat, blood and tears to down the LK up to the point I became known in my guild as the unlucky one. And while I was a serious if not hardcore gamer at the time, I no longer am. I actually hadn't played within the last month and my playtime in the past 3 months probably totals less than 20 hours. Ok, I have some 5+ experience so upon resuming I knew where to go for stuff and how to pick it but still: how does Blizzard plan to keep us motivated when it became so easy to finish the game?
That's what I first thought.
And then I realized the other side of the coin was that there probably were millions of players frustrated just the other way round: having paid months of subscription and an expensive addon that they could never see the content of.
Now it became easy for them to live the full story and at the same time you don't get the highest set level in these raid tools encounters : so there's still something to grind your teeth on if you're a hardcore one.
I still feel this is the end for me : even though I hated it, I lack the positive frustration at never quite being able to get the @#!<>° Lich King killed. The trepidation try after try. The anxiety of getting everyone briefed correctly. An of course the joy, pride and relief of become a "kingslayer".
And I'm now spending my thoughts on how to get SWTOR run on my Mac....
But then again, I was probably lost for wow before that. 5 years playing, close to 6, not enough time anymore. Time to become a casual Jedi Consular!
With Pandaren players able to choose either Horde or Alliance in the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack, World of Warcraft's arenas and battlegrounds will soon see an outbreak of panda-on-panda violence.
I think it's an interesting idea. Worth experimenting with: the game needs novelty anyway...
Check-out the look and the tier-set bonuses.
As Rohan writes, they're pretty cool: "I rather like the Holy bonuses. The 2pc is a nice bonus to Divine Favor, especially if you pair it with Holy Radiance. The 4pc boosts one of our big weaknesses, and will be a large help in things like Bethilac's or Ryolith's final phases."
