Apr 19, 2014 Gauging interest in an Over 40 WoW group I'm finding more and more folks that are my age playing the game I've enjoyed immensely since 2005. I've often wondered about the logistics of starting an over 35 guild or something of that nature but I realized that the best groups just come together on their own merits and similar interests. I have made lots of good solid friendships over the years with folks with ages ranging from the late teens-to people in their 60s and 70s. So something focused on one realm or even one particular faction likely wouldn't cut it. Horde players are amazing and I've learned a lot from them playing their Alliance alts as well as other many fine folks during the numerous times I've played alts on the Horde side. That said, it would still be nice to congregate occasionally and swap stories with folks of a similar mind set... as we often have wisdom that the younger crowd lacks at times. We also find and make obscure observations they don't get... nothing more frustrating or embarrassing than making a dated reference in guild chat and having silence or "huh?!? WTF are you talking about?" be our only response. So, my question is, any interest in a Facebook or other similar managed group being set up for the over 40 WoW set? We might let well-behaved 35+ folks in as well... if they ask nicely. /grin Thinking seriously of starting and maintaining one. Feel free to message me in-game or on this thread if you are interested.Safetydancer0 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 [Feedback] Timeless Isle Hello Blizzard. I am Granis MacBryde (that's my toon's name, not my IRL name) and I am writing my first ACTUAL feedback thread. Bear with me here... this can get hairy because reasons. *cough* Anyway. Timeless Isle. To be honest, it was a GREAT idea. All the right notions and stuff were there, in my opinion. I absolutely loved the platform elements, unlike most players here, and found them refreshing in a game that's typically just about killing stuff for loot. It really felt like I was being a greedy little bugger and trying my damnedest to get to a treasure chest. However, there is one major flaw with the island as far as I'm concerned, and it's the mobs. They're too overpowered. They're all DUNGEON-level mobs. Impossible to solo unless you're a god of your class, which I'm incapable of being so inb4 "lol learn to play nub." When you're doing overworld content, "trash mobs" should not be at the same strength as dungeon mobs. Pulling more than one of these is nearly unavoidable and ALWAYS a fatal error. So if you're planning on doing TI-style stuff for the overworld in Draenor, please keep this in mind. PLEASE don't tune the mobs there like you did in TI. The ones in TI are horrible.Granis49 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Censer of Eternal Agony Bug? The text for Censer of Eternal Agony reads that you sacrifice 90% of your health to become an Emissary of Ordos. While transformed, you are hostile to all players, and killing players grant bloody coins. This is not the case. Others who are marked as Emissary's of Ordos are un-attackable and thus cannot be killed for coins. Of course I know this isn't really a bug, this is working as intended. I just don't think it should be given the wording on the item. This has lead to roving groups of players on PvE realms marking themselves and attempting to trick others to target them in order to kill and camp them, even though they become worthless for bloody coins after the first kill. They stack on killed mobs to prevent people from getting their rightful loot, they stack on resource nodes and they swarm rare spawns making it highly difficult to tag them without getting marked for pvp. Trying to rally enough people on a PvE server to mount any kind of counter attack to mitigate this griefing is difficult as most see no reward in it, only the potential to become one more bloody coin in the griefer's bad. I think this could be helped quite a bit if the Censer of Eternal Agony did what it said and made Emissary's of Ordos hostile to all players, including those who are marked so that players could get some reward for giving up what they had been attempting to do previously so they can defend themselves. Does anyone else think this would be a good idea?Mustakraken7 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 What really frustrates you? For me it is queuing up for Gates of Retribution wanting to kill Galkaras, and waiting 45 minutes in the queue just to end up on Nazgrim who I don't need anything from. And now I get to wait 30 minutes to queue again. What frustrates you guys?Flostar39 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Quest gold reward level scaling I haven't seen any information on this, so i'm bringing it up. I would like to see the gold rewards for quests to scale with level as an incentive for people to do lower level quests. There is so much content in the game, but a lot gives players little incentive to do it. Sure, some enjoy doing the quests, regardless of the reward. Some enjoy doing the lower level quests for transmog gear. This is great, but scaling the gold rewards with level would give many more an incentive to do the old content and a reward for doing so.Nebulan0 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Low Population Server! Hey Blizzard, I was just wondering if you guys are going to start merging all low pop servers. I mean my server is absolutely dead and I am really getting sick not being able to enjoy 25 man content on our server, last I checked we have 1 active guild raiding 25 man content and the current guild I am is trying to move into 25 man content. Anyways I am sick of getting the answer if you want to transfer then you have pay to transfer, sorry blizzard but you know, I amongst a lot of other gamers have been playing since the release of WoW when there was only 8 servers I think it was and you had to wait before logging on. Now the reason why I say this is I don't think it's right and it's poor business when you have loyal gamers who have stuck with you since the release of you game to now and you expect them to pay additional 25$ to transfer their characters to enjoy the current end game content. I am sorry but I have been paying 15/month for the past 9 years and never made a fuss or nothing! If this issue is not fixed (as I have seen in other post) you are going to loose myself as a gamer as well as many others. I think that you should consider getting rid of maybe HALF to 3/4 of all the servers and make it that everyone plays on a Medium-High Pop server because this low pop stuff is really crappy, and it's not fair to gouge the wallets of your loyal customers so they can enjoy your game! Anyone else support me on this let Blizzard know and lets get this problem solved!Mdxx28 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 The Reason WoW is Unbalanced Melee classes such as myself, are way more overpowered than casters. Casters have to go through a cast time before they cast their spells. In that time they cast, they can be interrupted, their target can run behind them, or their target can leave their range. My proposed solution? Make every class in the game melee characters. Classes such as Locks and Mages can enchant their staves with Fel Magic or Fire Damage respectively. I think this would greatly decrease the amount of people complaining the game is unbalanced. Thank you for your time.Bloodthirsty4 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Blacksmithing Version of Milling/Prospecting Hey, I don't know if anyone has asked about this yet, but I was wondering why they haven't implemented a blacksmithing version of milling/prospecting. How come there isn't a scrap option? Personally, I thought it would be cool to have some sort of "scrap" tool. If you were to pick up a green instead of vendoring it off or disenchanting the item, you could scrap it for certain blacksmithing parts.Torkz2 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Potions question Guardian Vs Battle Did they change something and I missed it. If I go into a dungeon and drink a potion doesn't matter if it is a guardian or a battle potion it will not allow me to drink another potion (guardian or battle not heal or mana) until I get out. If I am not in a dungeon it will allow me to drink both a guardian and a battle potion back to back. Thanks for any info.Storagepimp0 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Suggest a different pre purchase offer My husband and I had been thinking about pre purchasing. We were just trying to figure out what char we would want to jump to level 90. It came down to ....... duh... none! Half the fun of the game is the start to finish. I was even wishing they would make a choise for the DK to start at level 1 in some story line someday. With thinking like that of course jumping to 90 would be no fun for us. Maybe for others its ok. I wish they would offer a new mount that carries 2 players. Maybe a dragon from Pandoria for 2. Really anything else but leveling to 90 would be great. That feature was really the only reason we could see to pre order. Other than of course being WOW players and going to buy it anyway sometime. Anyone know if they are going to make different pre order offers or are we stuck?Gias56 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Defecating Corpses Do your little dance, make rude gestures, spit, if it makes you happy, but repeatedly squatting over a corpse?? I don't even want to know how it's done. It seem's to be a common practice, and it sends a great message. And please, save the your misinterpreting the gesture. I don't know if Blizz can do anything about the little piece of animation needed to do this, it's most likely needed for preforming other actions. It's not cute, it's not funny, it's sick, and it send a message about the person that does it.Melysana47 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Legendary PvP quest So I am going for my second Legendary cloak. I have heard so many horror stories about the PvP aspect of the quest chain. I was so fearing running them due to this. I don't PvP much, not a fan. I have to be in the right mood to do it. Well I did it, Silvershard mines, won it on the first try, call it luck or what ever. Next was temple, I Lost 6 times in a row, not a chance of winning in any of the fights. So I stopped, came back the next day, and got in a group that kicked all forms of butt. Got it done. So I am wondering why people are so mad about this part of the quest, not trolling, if you want the cloak, do it, it is not hard. Dealing with a bunch of crap to get something so good is worth it. That is just my opinion.Shylaa9 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 How about some give instead of take? Just thought I would toss this out there. Can Paladins please have auras and the aura bar back in WoD. Auras are an iconic part of being a Paladin and without them the class has felt like it lost some flavor. Ya that silly Devo Aura damage reducing CD doesn't count. I mean an actual aura that emits from the Paladin to benefit allies and hurt enemies. What was so wrong with them? It was flavor. Not like they were OP or anything. Auras help make the Paladin feel like a Paladin. The holy warrior they are supposed to be. So I ask again. Could you please consider giving Paladins back auras? Just that might be enough to make me want to use my Paladin again. When I stopped playing him it was because I didn't feel like I was playing a Paladin any longer. I understand you want to make raids feel like they don't need to bring any one class for buffs. Well Paladin Auras can be trivial or cover a few other buffs like melee attack speed or spell haste just to name a few. Buffs we might miss out on with Hunters perhaps going Lone Wolf and not having a pet to cover a missing raid buff in WoD. Now this might not matter to anyone else but now during Alpha is a good a time as any to ask. For me auras are an iconic part of being a Paladin. If they can't do what they once did. Why not cover what we might be missing instead. TYStruck31 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Y'shaarj is the strongest Old God we've seen Think about it. Y'shaarj had enough influence over the entire continent of Pandaria that any negative emotion left its inhabitants vulnerable to it's control. The Pandarian obsession with "balance" seems overbearing until you realize it was entirely necessary for their survival. In the Alliance introduction to Pandaria, one of your allies almost falls to Sha corruption within minutes of stepping foot on the continent. Imagine what would happen if one of the more warlike Alliance or Horde races were caught in it's influence. But after Garrosh, I guess we don't really have to imagine do we? Any hot blooded Pandarians probably became Sha infested monsters millennia ago. Speaking of the Sha, the essence of the Old God was able to spawn seven embodiments of negativity, each of which is nearly as hard to destroy as the Old Gods themselves, seeing as how a mere lapse in mental discipline is all it takes to bring them back to life. You'd be hard pressed to even find another spawn of an Old God, let alone one as powerful as the Sha. And all of that was just the heart. Y'shaarj was already dead (insofar as Old Gods can die) at that point, but the heart maintained enough power do all of that. Admittedly, none of the Old Gods we've fought have been in their prime, but when you consider what condition Y'shaarj was in by the time of the Siege of Orgrimmar, it's clear that Yog'saron and C'thun owe us a Thank You card.Zacharoko12 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 Thunder Isle Question. Can someone please explain to me how to get to Thunder Isle? I'm trying to grind honor dailies on my hunter but nobody will help me in trade chat. I thought as soon as I got to shrine, there would be an automatic quest that will lead me to the Shadowpan Garrison which would then lead me to the Isle, but that has not worked for me. Any help will be greatly appreciated! PS: My hunter is on Alliance. Thanks!Murkindaily3 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 I love hypocricy.... When the new changes were announced on armor people were concerned about how professions were going to be affected. A Blizzard representative said well we want bonus to feel like a bonus. But what about Jewel crafting? a gamer said....and the response was increase the price for the gems according because now they are rare.... But all the changes being made are justify with it's a chore and players had to pay a lot to reforge, enchant, glyph and so on.... HmmmmmArhagon33 Apr 19, 2014
Apr 19, 2014 So sick of the Pve vs. PvP play thing. There are so many threads arguing this point. We PvEers are carebears and have no guts, and PvPers are so tough. Fine I accept that. yet when someone complains about unwanted PvP actions they are cry babies. If you are on a PvP server, than yeah you need to stop. You chose your realm. Your choice, no one elses fault. Yet when it comes to PvE realms, it is a totally different story. I have never been tricked by the Censor so that is not what I am talking about. My problem is that the wanna-be PvPers on PvE realms are cowards. I could name a few but that is against the rules. When these people attack they do it fairly and within the rules, but when opposition comes to attack back they run like cowards. I have seen it on the TI and when they attack low level towns. If you think you are bad !@# to attack you better stand up and fight. Then don't they run and hide. And I am sure this happens on both factions. WPvp is never coming back because too many PvPers run from a fight. I only speak for PvE servers, I am sure you PvP servers are different. I am not trying to speak for you guys.Shylaa7 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Two solutions for our Bot problem! This would only stop bots that run raids. Solution 1 Remove all old content raids. If you weren't playing while it was released you missed out. You can level from 1-90 without ever stepping foot in a raid. Bots are not running current raids only previous ones. Solution 2 Example- If its a 10man raid you have to enter with 10. (This would stop Bots as well, atleast slow them down) Honestly letting someone solo old content raids shouldn't be allowed. Old content raids= Easy achievements/Mounts/Gold Anyone like either suggestions?Korvo10 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 iL 553 + Blacksmithing Patterns I'm wondering if it is possible to get blacksmithing patterns for higher than item level 553 and if so, where to get them. Also, where can I get more patterns for iL gear 553? I can make a couple pieces and it's always possible to learn more when making the Balanced Trillium Ingots, but I mostly learn the Crafted Malevolent gear, iL 476. Is there another way to get these patterns besides making the ingots?Pallyalt8 Apr 19, 2014

Apr 19, 2014 Anyway to adjust other players particle den? I find I really like how particle density affects thing such as enchants, fire pits, spirit beasts, mount, etc. I really dislike how overwhelming it is in a raid environment however. Is there any way to make it so other players particle density effects for spells are set to something like fair while mine remain on ultra? I find it more annoying than cool when I'm in a raid and the middle of my screen is covered in bright fire and spells. It seems like complete overkill.Peze5 Apr 19, 2014

No level 90s or 100s running around, no Server firsts already taken, a chance for NEW players to take part in being the first to set foot in the new lands and take part in all that is new.

Apr 19, 2014 Ingame language translator please. Last night, I decided to run Gates of Retribution LFR on my hunter to try for the bow, get in, and we wipe several times because neither tank is going into a tower. Look at both their realms, both are Brazilian realms. So we couldn't inform them that one tank needed to go into the towers. I am not asking for a separate que, just simply asking you add a translator into the game, you already have the basis for it inplace with your translator for the made up racial languages.Eysia4 Apr 19, 2014
