Check out the latest World of Warcraft news.
When Howard County Sheriff’s Department deputy Matt Roberson told the Perspective how he tracked down a man wanted on drug charges through the immensely popular online game World of Warcraft, it sounded like the kind of story the Internet would love. But it surprised just about everyone by going viral.
The story, “Long arm of law reaches into World of Warcraft,” published in the Dec. 30 edition, quickly became the most-read article in the paper’s 20-year history. Perspective digital media manager Tim?Turner said he thought it might find an audience online. It certainly brought enormous traffic to the paper’s Web site.
Sam Raimi will no longer be directing Spider-Man 4, and neither will anyone else for that matter. Sony Pictures announced today that they are canning the current Spider-Man franchise and will be rebooting it in the summer of 2012 with an entirely new director, cast, and crew.
Chinese World Of Warcraft operator NetEase is expected to be fined by government agencies for “gross violations” of regulations, but will be allowed to keep running the popular online game.
As reported earlier this week, Chinese regulators the General Administration of Press and Publications (GAPP) and the Ministry of Culture (MOC) appear to have reached an agreement over the rules NetEase must abide by if it is to continue to operate World Of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft, your boss and succeeding at work
For a lot of people, politics, corporate strategy and philosophy are the sort of topics that lead to thoughts of using a cheese-grater on an inner thigh. If you’re a cubicle jockey in an office, or someone questioning their existence in the meatspace, then WoW may be able to help. When I say help, I don’t mean in the ‘yep I’ll call in sick and play WoW for three days straight to show those idiots’ sort of way. I’m talking about the real-world opportunities that WoW can provide you as far as leadership development, strategic thinking, political nous or plain old perspective on the important things in life.
Clearwater’s Christopher H. Bouffard is in some trouble. The authorities allege the 23 year-old committed fraud by selling World of Warcraft characters online, and then not delivering the promised Night Elves and/or gnomes. He’s being charged with scheming to defraud and two counts of grand theft.
If you’re stuck at work, unable to play WoW, you might want to waste some time playing with the new Armory. The Armory now features a 3D model viewer of your character in all your gear, complete with options for displaying a variety of emotes and animations. You can set your default pose (and even background screen) by logging into the game.
Yeah better later than never. Seems kinda late to be writing about reflection of things looking back at 2009 and how I played WoW. My holidays were just busy, I happened to have worked through all the holidays while most people enjoyed the time off from school and work. Writing a review of 2009 in WoW wasn’t exactly close to top of my list of things to do. Sleeping during my short days off was just a bit better choice.
There are a few main types of resources that drive class abilities in most MMOs. This is a categorization of the ones I’ve seen.
1. Net-Loss Resource
This is a resource which, at the end of the encounter, is lower than it starts. The classic example of this is mana. Classes with mana start at full, and spend it as the fight progresses.
One of the advantages and disadvantages of mana is that all abilities are available right at the start. As well, there is no innate restriction to using any sequence of abilities, until the entire resource is exhausted. This can cause burst damage in PvP, but it does grant the character maximum flexibility to deal with whatever situation may arise.
Sadly, I’m almost certain the answer is yes.
On the three servers I have level 80 raiding toons, no guild has killed Putricide on 25-man.
My guild has expended our 10 attempts without getting into phase three. We’re a pretty good group. We had no problem with the ugly brothers. At least a few guildies had attempts/kills of Putricide on PTR. We’re not world-class, perhaps, but overall, we’re a solid bunch. We did make solid progress in learning the fight and got deeper and deeper into it with most of our tries.
When it comes to my professions, within the World of Warcraft, at times I’m all over the place. At times I don’t level them until I’m close to 80. Additionally, when starting toons on a new server they rarely keep the same professions they initially chose.
But that’s all about to change…
This past weekend I decided to create another toon. However with my little Shaman it’s different. I decided to create another toon. Since I already had ten on the Bronzeberd server I had to let one of my bankers go. My Shaman filled in the #10 slot. I’ve always liked Shamans, played around with them for a little bit Alliance side, but well the Draenei Shammies didn’t do it for me. This past weekend I created an Orc. No surprise there, I love their lore, and my favorite toon to play within WoW are female orcs. Not to mention my favorite in-game buddy (Teddee) raids (and joins my toons on in-game adventures) with his Shaman. He’s amazing, so I sort of blame him for making me wont to create a Shammie. Better to blame him, than to simply admit I’m an altoholic, right? My Shaman is a enchnater and a skinner.
The last couple of weeks have been lazy summer holidays for me. During this time I probably should have been PUGing ICC 25 and 10s on Lathere and making sure I logged in to complete the daily heroic each day. I instead decided to be a bad little tree and not worry about my Emblems of Frost and did what I felt like doing: unwinding with some solo game play and leveling.
