Gotta wonder what's up with old Belloc Brightblade there. Garrosh seems to keep him chained really close...


I guess hearing 'YOU WILL SERVE THE HORDE OR BE CRUSHED BENEATH IT!' coupled with 'HELLSCREAM'S EYES ARE UPON YOU!' all day every day for a couple years did some things to his poor brain. Nasty perverted things I don't need to explain further. :D

Kerrath here. My plan to become a MORE POWERFUL WARLOCK THAN AAKARSHAN is well under way. 1 day at 85 and I'm already at ilvl 384. WATCH OUT GOOD SIR.

I went there and I can confirm it's still Brann unless it changed last beta update. He's a neutral-faction character by now, pretty much. I mean, in Halls of Origination, he even yells "FOR THE HORDE" which felt just a little awkward.

My idea though was that for a moderate fee (maybe 50-200g or so?) you could "blacklist" a type of digsite you have no interest in. For example, I think troll forks are cool and all but I don't really care about Trolls when when I'm trying to find Dwarf stuff. So I blacklist Troll for a fee and don't see it again unless I un-blacklist it, which is free of cost. There would of course be a one-race limit to prevent people from blacklisting everything on Kalimdor and spending all day in Uldum or something.


Sort of like turning off xp. I like it.

You're not a real warlock cause you're not demo.

If only you could duel in a raid instance. Then we could set up a cross realm group and watch them duke it out.

Yelloooooooow.....

Beta is down for maintenance.

Could this mean... at last...

Pet Battles?

I'm watching the forums to see if they announce anything and will spam you mercilessly if it is.

Fixed that for you. :D

Meantime, I've started doing Oracles dailies on 9 of my chars to farm eggs for the pets.

I'm really starting not to like hunting for shinies. No Lafoo, I do NOT want crunchy bugs, delicious or not.

Omggggggg I hope so! Although I've been hearing rumors that you have to be level 90 to train for pet battles. I really hope that's not true, because I want to start collecting instantly, I don't want to have to level first. I usually don't even level the first few days of an expansion because it's so crowded everywhere.

But he is affliction and so am I!

I was trying to turn his dumb argument from before around on him. >.<

The internet needs a sarcasm font.

Also, good luck with those! :D

I got the proto-drake in my first egg and lost interest after that. XD

Beta patch is 19 **GB**

I'm going to be downloading until next month.

And Zarhym said they'll be making a big post to explain why a 19gb patch is needed.

Just because I feel that demonology is more thematically warlock-ish does not mean it's better for trying to not look like a retard when you're getting carried by other people and you're too lazy to change your levelling spec.

My original plan that I stick to atm is that I plan to just absorb gear from my guild's main run until I'm not a pile of horse !@#$ and then try out all 3 specs for which is most fun.

my understanding is that, in MOP, affliction is being completely gutted and thrown in the trash, destruction is becoming mindnumbingly slow, and demonology is pretty much badass.

actually warlock vs warlock is probably the most retarded 1v1 duel since rogue vs rogue.

I just ignored it, personally. And I got my green meanie in I think three or four eggs. I'm after the pets this time.

Welcome to the insanity.

*tapes bacon to Iowawolf in welcome*

And personally, I don't care what they do to Affliction. I'll keep playing it. It'll get balanced back eventually.

In other news, I got my bone raptor mount, and finished Fossil solves. Now down to 8 rares.

Well it's not a matter of performance so much as, is it still fun to play. We will have to wait and see.

From what I hear, Affliction PvE is perfectly fine and may well be the PvE spec of choice. However, it has lost most of its viability in PvP. Which made a few warlocks angry, because Aff has always been a primary choice for PvPing locks.

Well, as long as Affliction is still 'DoT the !@#$ out of it and watch it die', I think it'll still be fun to play.

PvP is an aspect I care nothing for and only care about if it threatens to impact my PvE experience. However, I have nothing against things being done for PvP, especially if they're only going to be implemented on PvP servers.

well that's all 3 specs. I did a little looking around and it looks like the biggest change to Aff is that they are removing Haunt and replacing it with a channelled spell. Which, of course, sucks for PVP, because as a warlock, you don't actually sit and cast as aff. You get your dots up and then spam fel fire and the only actual casts you do are drain life and fear. if you hard cast UA, you're likely to get locked out of shadow and trolled for the rest of the match.

I'm pretty sure that the only difference between pve and pvp servers will be that guards will be weaker on pvp servers.

Which to my mind was well-warranted. As the guards keep bored solo asshats from screwing up low-level quest areas, they're great on a PvE server. But on a PvP server, it's silly to expect people to leave you alone out in the world. If you really wanna level on a PvP server without(much)chance of interruption, queue for dungeons.

Has there been any more said about those proposed grappling hooks to yoink people off flying mounts? Another good idea, though I think they would be better off implementing a 5 minute debuff whenever you kill a hostile faction NPC that prevents you from flying.
