If I was a MoP developer …

This is a Blog Azeroth Shared Topic.  In fact, its my Blog Azeroth Shared Topic as I suggested it.  And then I nearly missed it as I’m so sick! I’ve already said I’m looking forward to some of the new features in Mists of Pandaria (PokeWoW ftw!)  But what would I do if I was in charge of the expansion?  How would I resolve some of the debates?  And what would people think? What do we know about MoP so far? 5 new levels in 5 new zones 1 new race – Pandaran – for both factions 1 new class … Continue reading If I was a MoP developer …

Premium WoW services

Yes its ANOTHER comment post on the furore.  Its my blog.  And I always feel the need to comment when the WoW trolls cry louder than my 5 month old child. So far there are three ‘premium’ services that Blizzard will/does provide: Mobile Auction House Mobile Guild Chat Cross-Realm invites Now its not clear right now if the last of these will be part of the same premium fee that you pay for the mobile services or a separate fee.  If its a separate fee I expect the same fee will cover an increasing range of services.  Either way I … Continue reading Premium WoW services

Interesting …. ramblings on the Twitter Developer Chat

My favourite/most interesting points from the Twitter Developer Chat.  I would like to point out that this is a great feature from Blizzard.  Its normally full of tantalising hints.  Its also good because its quite a positive event.  So many forum posts from Blizzard are in response to whining.  Quite depressing really. This is a bit rambling, just my thoughts about the comments. Q. Are there any plans to implement cross-faction/cross-realm mail(for BoA gear and such)? A. We have cross-faction mail for BoA items now; cross-realm is a work in progress, but we hope to have it done “soon.” Gotta … Continue reading Interesting …. ramblings on the Twitter Developer Chat

Cataclysm: the end of WoW as we know it?

See what I did there.  That was a joke.  Sorry. Lodur posted about What Cataclysm is Doing Right on World of Matticus.  He asked us: So what do you think? What was the best and worst of Burning Crusade? What was the best and worst of Wrath? How do you feel about cataclysm so far? Excited, sad, angry? What are you looking forward to the most? The Burning Crusade I didn’t play a lot pre-TBC.  I was busy with that pesky Real Life and I never raided.  I barely made it to 60 when TBC arrived.  TBC was six months … Continue reading Cataclysm: the end of WoW as we know it?

10 ideas for posts

Posts I’m working on at the moment (in no particular order): I’m going to post a quick summary of a couple of useful books I’m reading at the moment. Another project I have in mind is doing some guide posts – the idea is to make them useful to new players, existing players and researchers so these are taking a while to write – I’m currently working on one about Factions that should be up soon.  I’ll follow this with one about Gender and one about Race. I’d also like to do some simple player guides – I’ve got some … Continue reading 10 ideas for posts
