Jul 3, 2012 Is arena harder than raiding? (lf input) This was a question posed in trade today, and i am interested in seeing this discussed in an orderly forum post, that which we can follow each other's arguments. my stance: I believe arena is harder than raiding. Now yes, most people in here will post from their perspective of the 1700-1800 bracket, and while i havent been really high, i've been to 2.2k around 3 times. Why i think it's harder? Arena is a constantly changing enviroment, each person (lets say 3 people) control each of their 3 characters, each having the independence of moving about, damaging, healing, using CC. This is similar to a chess match, where if both teams play right (not diving behind pillars, or just being stupid), it comes down to mistakes that people make. We know that the human element warrants mistakes, they happen, each game. The objective (put simply, and not bringing into the equation stupid things), is to capitalize and punish the enemy on their mistakes.... one problem though, we only have a certain time frame to capitalize by retaliating with a certain cooldown we have. Which is harder? fighting a team of equal skill that is constantly changing with their CC, movement, interrupts reactiveness etc? or fighting an NPC where you can look up everything he will do during the entire fight on wowhead, and can guide the NPC to wherever you want it to go, while generally nothing is a surprise, and can be prepared for (IE, queuing up AoE heals for an AoE damage intensive phase.) Now some might say "But it's harder to get 10 people than 2 other people"....... while this might be harder to actually get people to devote their time to this damn game, It's harder to synergize with a certain player at higher arena ratings. each one of you must compliment each other in abilities, cooldowns, movement, and CC. In both scenarios you are punished for mistakes, but this can always be made up by another person in pve who is stellar with their cooldown usage. such as battle rez's and survival cooldown usage. (psup guardian angel, bubble, etc). I know that every game can turn out different that others just by the other person with another mind doing something different, while i know everything the boss will do. give me your insight Ravenholdt?Serenie44 Jul 3, 2012

Jul 1, 2012 Selling Pattern: Deviate Scale Belt So a friend of mine mentioned this wasn't available in game any more, and after checking my bank, it turns out I actualy have one. I could teach it to an alt, but I'd rather sell it to a completionist who will actually use it. I'm hordeside, but I'm sure that's no barrier. Gimme a shout.Gruklaar0 Jul 1, 2012

If you're on the alliance side, i'll pay 225g for a cross-auction trade. Because you'll be using your own mats. If you're an alliance player : please contact me either through a horde toon or a friend on the horde side so that i can be next to a cross auctioneer for the trade.Nakremy4 Jun 30, 2012
Jun 30, 2012 WTB: white riding camel 100k on horde No I am not paying 200k or so on AH. If one were to go by the gold spammer's price, and look on eBay for unscratched loot cards, 100k is probably the high end of fair price.Udderhchaos3 Jun 30, 2012
Jun 29, 2012 Sore loser on ally... Ok so I gank a level 84 DK who was afk at K3 when I went to buy motorcycle parts. He logs on... TWICE... horde alts to QQ about getting ganked, then logs out quickly. Clearly a whiny sore loser is luring in ally side. I'd name him but it's against the forum rule. However there can't be many level 84 DK anti-PVP player on Ravenhondt. PVP happens, I've gotten ganked by higher level players, and I've ganked lower level players. There is no such thing as fair combat on PVP server. However it had been a few years since I've had someone log onto an alt to complain about PVP combat. I might have gotten more but BadBoy addon blocked low level whispers, which I installed mainly to stop the annoying gold seller spam and to block level 1 whiners. PS if you're the one who ninja-whispered me to complain, go QQ elsewhere and roll on care bear server if PVP bothers you too much.Udderhchaos27 Jun 29, 2012

Jun 24, 2012 [H] Where should Org RP central be? RP central, by the by, is where you go if you're just looking to RP with anyone at any time. One, super-condensed hotspot you can go to to meet other RPers. Generally good to be away from where people do AH and bank stuff. Don't want to step on anyone's toes/spam non-participants. Stormwind's great. Blue Recluse has plenty of room. It's out of the way yet easily accessible. Plenty of chairs and drinks and hidey spots. Org not so much. It's all compressed and there's not many places to go to have some quiet time. Mind you, this will likely only be a problem until MoP, but still worth looking into because Org won't be completely empty. The Wyvern's Tail area is what I suggest. It was RP central earlier in the expansion's life apparently and things seemed to be fine there. 1. It's an inn. Drinks, chairs, fire, etc. 2. Has an outdoor area with a pond, set back with little foot traffic but easy to get to. Nice little outdoor area. 3. It's in a quiet part of town. Scenic! ...That's about all it has going for it. I don't know, I like having one spot to go to to hang out. The Drag was pretty awkward and also lacking. But that's just me.Zagden18 Jun 24, 2012

Jun 22, 2012 The Stranglethorn Incident To the members of Coldstar, I would like to extend an apology to Coldstar. Tonight House Ravensong attacked a group of horde believing ourselves justified only to find out we had rolled an RP event. We weren't aware of the magnitude or seriousness of the event. We did know however, that the event was in a pvp area close to stormwind. We meant only to draw out a fight and once the incursion was over, we left. Being that we are supportive of the roleplay community and frown upon trolling events on both alliance and horde side, we are offering our apology for tonight and our word that we will not revisit this situation in the future. You deserve to hold your events in peace without harassment and our actions were out of place and inappropriate. We ask for your understanding and forgiveness. Humbly, House RavensongNenai60 Jun 22, 2012

Jun 13, 2012 "Glyphed" Armor Set (Transmog) (Finished!) Hello, I have been trying to get two pieces to finish up my rogue's transmog set. I hardly ever log on her except to check the AH for miscellaneous things but...meh, I like the look of the "Glyphed" set (minus cloak and helm, blech!) with Azure Dragonhelm of <suffix>. The Emperor's New Cape means I don't even have to remember to turn off cloak visuals. I'm rather pumped to finish it. So, anywhoo, all I need is Glyphed Leggings and Glyphed Bracers. I have been advertising and periodically checking the AH on both Horde and Alliance for...I want to say the past couple months? So if anyone just happens to come across either of these, I'd love to hear about it. Thank you for your time. Edit: I am done collecting the items now.Vorastrix4 Jun 13, 2012

Jun 12, 2012 Molten Front: Have...Have We Met? I would like to see how many people of the Ravenholdt forum are still actively doing the Molten Front dailies and, more importantly, when they generally seem to find themselves on to do them. I am currently working on the very last portion of the meta-achievement and just need Mankrik to /wave at but am very discouraged at *usually* being the only one on at whatever times I log on to do the relevant quest and the occasional drop-by to scout out potential completion. I've been on at many, MANY different times of the day, on various days, yet I still can't really get a good feel on who is still consistently doing these dailies. If you happen to have a greater scope of the situation (regardless of the lull between expansions, many people simply burnt out, and/or Diablo, etc), then I'd greatly appreciate the input. Additionally, if you happen to still be doing this content, a quick /who Vorastrix and calling over if you get Mankrik as your notable NPC helper, I'd be very grateful. Thank you for your time.Vorastrix1 Jun 12, 2012

Jun 4, 2012 Cross Server Zones in MoP. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/5393667/Cross-Realm_Zones_Coming_to_Beta-5_10_2012 The gist is that low level zones and underpopulated areas will be cross server, so for Ravenholdt we'll have every RPPVP server in Durotar for example. This also means that people from all RPPVP servers will have the opportunity to interact with one another in World PvP, RP, and other events. From what I've seen of other RPPVP servers, I give it less than a month before we gain the reputation as bullies from the other RPPVP servers. The Emerald Dream/Ravenholdt rivalry will no doubt grow, but the other ones barely classify as PvP servers, let alone RPPVP. It'll be interesting.Draxonicar61 Jun 4, 2012
