I know we have all read Lucas games is gone, the last few game releases are not something I really care about, but the past games. X-wing, Tie Fighter, Full throttle, the star wars FPS, the RPG's (KOTOR).. I hate to say it but they just failed when they tried to drag the universe into the heavily populated FPS team games (battlefront), and the RTS game.. which was quite complex and fun to look at , but sadly not that good (for us hardcore RTS players). I wonder how the SW MMORPG fail by BioWare effected them if at all? The guys who designed all the great games are not in the company anymore (as far as I can tell anyways), but its still sad to see.. Of course it does open up the chance for some new blood to work with the source material, that is if the mouse will let them...

we really need a Fighter game again (tie fighter vs x-wing!!!!!) instead of DROIDS..

RealID

True - Battletag is basically a friends list that's cross-server. Not only that, but it works in all Blizzard games (StarCraft and Diablo) so your friends list is cross-game as well.

I think you can que up for dungeons etc using it, but I haven't done that since all my real life friends are on my server already.

I am not sure if i have any

I am not sure if i have any over 70.. wasn't 70 plus the underwater crap (or is that 80+... hmm I think i had a 84 when i quit).. that whole underwater zone stuff was most of the reason i quit, that and the fact nobody wants to run an instance in a civilized manner.. trying to do stuff in 10 minutes ... then crying that nobody has mana to heal.. Im finding instance runs are the same still.. doing runs that used to take 30-45 minutes in 15.. not hard.. but just completely not fun.. cant look at anything, heck looting is almost not done.. nobody even rolls on gear (this is old world so i understand they wont need it in like 2 hours more of play) no.. I think WOW is just he same people re rolling over and over trying to like the game and hating it ( from all the non stop bitching i hear in game... me i just bitch out of game :) ) I had me, my ex GF and her 2 friends.. and occasionally my friends ( surprising how males cant just play and enjoy a game) we did everything together, took our time made sure everybody got what they wanted and had fun.. We did all pet quests, all mount quests etc together.. achievements.. once you have that kind of fun it really hard to just go back and level and grind gear..

well i was rushing to catch ya but it don't look like i will.. i know 1-60 is quick.. and 60-70 inst to bad, but once past that it slows.. got in a guild with 400 people.. and still cant find anybody to play with.. I was in tmills trying to get some people to do the YETI and Duhhold boss (3 man bosses) 0ver 3 hours trying to get a group with chat.... nothing.. some things have changed alot, others are not... I can see why no new blood comes in.. the old blood turns it nose up at um. Good thing 99% is solo.

i dont know my tag yet.. but will add you guys.

and it does look like with REAL ID you can cross realm play.. hmm that would be cool.. I'm sure i have a 75 in my toons someplace (if im right or wrong on the 70 or 80 when i quit...) now if its horde.. i played all horde when they where minority.. but pretty much switched to alliance when they became minority (makes for much much faster battlegrounds and arena play when you are minority)

I just hit 75 last night. ;)

I just hit 75 last night. ;)

I have an 80 priest I'm thinking of continuing when I hit 80 since my friend is a tank, but maybe not since we're not having any issues getting into instances yet. I think the longest we've had to wait is about 3 minutes. Definitely having some fun with the mage.

I tried a monk briefly, but couldn't get into it. Reminds me of how I felt about the death knights. I didn't like kung fu panda anyway--seems weird to me that Blizzard apparently is all into that. Silly if you ask me. Instead of pandas, I think it would have been cool to make the new race based on turtles...ninja turtles! :)

Battle tag--still not used to that system. Anyway, mine is apparently BLACKLILY8#1356

I got to play Sunday

I got to play Sunday afternoon during race (watching and playing).. so with Friday afternoon (waiting on guy to pick stuff up that never showed) and Sunday I made 45.. still away off from playing with you guys at 60- or ...? whatever you are now. Not to sure I like Monk excellent PvP but in PvE i still prefer my Huntard. I still don't understand how a monk should be played.. Duel wield, or 2h weapons? It seems 2h is way to go.. crits being a HUGE part of dps on monk, the higher crits should tip the scales.. but as I have not read at all.. maybe bliz has some stupid evening thing going.. it sure looks like they want everybody to be generic and even now.. I still like how WoW playes.. but the nuts and bolts ( skill tree's and gear) are almost worthless now.. I have my level 20 set of gear on still (leveled so fast i just didn't pay attention and I sold all drops) I still have not lost a Duel ( only duel with all cooldowns) and have only died a few times to trying to take on 3 man end quest mobs.. (i could solo most with my huntard, cant with the monk even with all cooldowns )

WOW has the old world changed.. badlands now comes after plaugelands? is so weird.. I played after cata.. but never in old world.. 1000K flooded? Barrens ripped in 2, Thunderbluff blocked.. very cool seeing all the old world changes.. sum excellent some... all the quests are new so Im a bit "lost' but they have hubs all over, the non stop running back and forth is gone.. i think that evened it out for me.. sad part i see.. level 45 and i have done the quests in 8 zones.. you level so fast you wont see 3/4ths of the old world zones.. Im almost feeling bad.. i have seen the new stuff over and over and over.. I want to see the new stuff in old world now.. (started a Huntard, going to slowly drag him though it all) but wanted to try catch you guys.. maybe cant.. who knows..

Bitwraight what level are you.. and your on the same server? Im thinking we can hop servers or something now? I keep seeing JobobWarrior(*) what does that mean? the (*) at the end.. if i can pull from a different server.. and play with you guys.. im ready.. is that the REAL ID thing? I really have been away over 2 years.. Im kinda cluless.

Well its installed and I

Well its installed and I started a character on Uther.. I was more then surprised on the amount of people in the NOOB area's.. Last I played it was HOURS for instance runs and none of the NOOB quests where hard to do as nobody but me was doing them.. Barrens.. not a pig to kill.. 20 pandas and 1-3 normal horde standing around Kill stealing each other.. Horrible bottle necks at the "boss" quests.. (snarreltusk and such) I can do 1-20 in about 4 hours normally.. Panda start area.. pretty but horribly bland quests.. BE or Worgen still have the Best Starting quests. MONK, i like.. went DPS (at 10) and .. good god.. he puts some raw DPS out.. I imagine he has to puss up a bit later.. brings back memory's when a rogue could OWN any class in game so WOW was 75% rogues and 25% all other class for about 6-9 months (till nerf hammers where hit). Yes.. monk with skinning (for crit bonus) and herb (for bonus heal) and quivering palm for stun.. I have dueled about 20 times (never another monk) and never lost.. getting smoked, Palm um, shoot off herb heal.. destroy um as they are stunned and you heal back to full.. and if you hit a healer.. just stun um on a heal ( yes its a bit tricky) and use the million hit punch thingy... WIN!!! Just make sure all cool downs are ready.. win every time. I know Im fighting noobs.. but man a DPS monk has to be deadly in PvP.. maybe the other monk classes are the counter? Did a quick check.. HORDE? this server is almost 70% horde.. why did you guys go horde? I see a quick run down and .. Horde still seems ot be the preferred side.. in the mid 60% overall on all servers.. Alliance was the most up till the BE came out, has been minority ever since.. (dran are a butt ugly race, i blame them) I tend to gravite to the lesser used classes and races.. so Horde just feels wrong to me.. (and yes I do know MONKS.. not lesser, but they are 100% new to me, gotta do one) but.. horde/alliance no worries.. just wondering..

2 years away.. still the same old horrible player base.. No questions are ever answered, at least Barrens chat is almost quiet now.. One run of ragefire shows the utter a-hole mentality of Dungeon finder groups.. Rage at every step with how everybody plays.. People dropping out non stop, to slow.. nobody healed all of us non stop for 2 minutes as we pulled entire instance (dumbaZZ's) tank didn't pull all 6 off me as i agro'ed them... I know it was my fault for hoping for better..

Skill tree's.. odd.. very odd.. its like they said.. first skiill points.. make sure all are worthless overall.. I get speed increases if my panda barrel rolls.. for 20 seconds.. travel skill for a DPS? 4 choices.. one is remotely worth it "unlock any stun or moment impairing thing" which is pretty much worthless in PvE but awesome for PvP.. I wonder If Bliz designs around PvP at all time with skills and then see's that they work in PvE. I really think they change up all the Skill tree's every year or two as people have to rethink them.. and man do people think about um.. there are webpages full of data on skill tree's..

so.. with all that bitching.. I had fun.. MONK seems OP in DPS form..

couple questions if you read my rant this far.. Still duel spec? i see my skill tree shows all 3.. so I assume I can at sometime. What are all the names like this JoePlayer(*) i assume its a freebie account? but I see a ton of High levels with it too... so Im confused.

I will get together with you guys when i get a bit higher.. if you are still playing and my annoying bitching here ( don't worry i seldom bitch in game) don't bother ya :)

We never have gotten into raiding. We did a bit of PVP arena type stuff, that was pretty fun. It might be different this go round with the new raid finder and all. the fun for me is getting to the level cap and then gearing up a bit in heroics before burning out. ;)

Im only talking about getting up to you guys in level.. if you are 60 and im 10 .. not much playing in group.. hence I would whip through the first 60 level as fast as I could (and to help that maybe get a instance run or two in the 30-40's for some better gear out of you guys).. once caught I have no care if I level fast or slow.. I honestly tend to bore with end game as MOST players are to damn pissy about everything.. gear , pissy about how you play if you don't run an instance in 15 minutes flat so they can do it again.. No i would just like to catch up,, then no hurry at all :)

WoW is about playing with people you enjoy playing with.. I could care less about speed (even if I mention it.. I do like to try things.. ) I have done speed runs, battlegrounds when you got Titles (I was Knight commander and 2nd on my server in Hunter class) done the arena's etc.. I did 1-60 nakid! love my Hunters so just for fun i did 1-60 with nothing but a bow and backpack just my troll in his loincloth.. was a blast (and for anybody who think gear makes no difference this is a BIG way to tell) did the 1-60 speed runs.. did the nakid Gnome races , in fact won one of the first ones and blizz game a special title for it.. (sorry forgot it.. as it was class i didn't enjoy and he never made it past the 30's.. keep in mind this was pre expansion wow.. leveling was not slow.. but by today's standards it was)

No right now a few people who find some conversation and mello play would suit me just fine.. if we gel.. do you use WoW for voice or ??

and .. yes I went out and bought Mists today at noon.. wonder how many updates the game will run when i was away 2 years.. might not play tonight at all...2 years WoW free.. addicts is addicts...
