Blizzard's furry friends

This community seems just a little dead but perhaps I can get an answer here. Long story short: I had one 90 a while ago, got rid of it when I ragequit my old server. Does anyone know what a good server to play on is? I'm currently Alliance on Emerald Dream and I'm just finding all my friends had quit again and I'm having second thoughts :/

Looking for Roxy [Feb. 12th, 2013|12:17 am]
Blizzard's furry friends

[Current Mood |distresseddistressed]

Kinda looking for the GM of the Horde and Alliance Guilds on Bloodhoof: Order/Legion of the Claws. We've noticed a few things that need addressing, and it's really bad form to advertise that you're looking to take on new officers to have an officer presence on at all times, and then not respond to any of the people asking about the position. I noticed that the Enjin wepages for the guilds are either locked because there's no time on them, or have been removed completely. If you're giving up the game in favor of something else, that's cool, but some of us are still playing and we'd like to keep the guilds intact. I notice that it says you log in every day or so, but no one seems to recall you being on. Anyway, we'd like to discuss some officers for the Alliance-side guild at least, and maybe for the Horde-side, too. I say we only because I've spoken with the others who are on when I am and we think its a shame there aren't any officers around to help us with guild-related issues and sending in-game mail you your alts isn't getting any replies.

Please contact us. You can go through me here.

"Irony" I Swear to GOD This is True!!! [Jun. 10th, 2011|05:24 pm]
Blizzard's furry friends

[Current Mood |gigglygiggly]

Posted to ALL my wow groups because whether you play it or not, it's funny.

Do you want to know the very meaning of irony?

SO Last night on my Paladin I landed in a group that had gotten to the Reaver boss in Heroic Deadmines. Now this is heroic mode so usually people by this level KNOW their shit. One of the said party members was a player named Burrn - This warlock by some way or another was not only plagued by fire it was his curse. You'd think that someone who would name himself Burrn should know what happens when you touch fire, not this guy! He plagued me too with this curse, as twice I was directly involved with his rampant need for self-destruction in this slew of a dungeon run.

-First, the Foe Reaver boss. Since I was the only melee dpser in the group I was opted to run the Prototype reaver. I'd done it before, I know the score. As soon as the boss pulled, my monitor blacked out on me for about 10 seconds. It came on and the first of the adds to spawn had made their way up the ramp and proceeded to start exploding. I ran up as quick as I could and threw it off, but Burrn had been the victim of the explosions and was now dead.

-The second instance of this didn't happen until we reached the Ship cove, where not once, but twice, Burrn was knocked off the bridge by the exploding cannonballs. He didn't die, but he might as well have.

-The non-fire intensive fights that followed, all the way up the ship, fighting Ripsnarl and Cookie went through almost flawlessly (though I died once or twice) Then we get to Vanessa VanCleef and she hits us with the nightmare potion. Burrn died twice-by-fire in the fire nightmare.

-During the electric nightmare, he ran head long into one of the spinning bolts of lightning at the boss. I consider that a burn of sorts... but also I thought he was the tank running at the boss so I started following him, only to see the Foe Reaver come running at me, I backed up and got hit by the back swing, dying as well. (sheesh)

-We make it through the rest of the nightmare and face Vanessa again. I'm impressed that he only managed light damage through the fight when we had to rope swing away. But when Vanessa suicide bombed guess who was RIGHT next to her, a mere split second too late for Leap of Faith who pulled his body across to her? Right... Burrn was burned again.

-I ended up rezzing Burrn, laughing at how bad his luck had been that run. He thanked me and then proceeded to walk INTO the blazing fire on the ship and he died again. I asked him why the hell he did that. His response, as he was getting another rez, was "I wanted to see if it would hurt me." I answered "Let me introduce you to the meaning of FIRE!" and he answered "Well, forges have fire and they can't kill you."

I thanked everyone for the run and exited the group, laughing so hard that my eyes were watering.

NOW to the fun part of this, if you have a story you'd like to call "I Swear to GOD This is True!!!" Just respond to this post and tell everyone your story. Just for fun it's FRIDAY people! Come on!

Way to go, Blizzard :P [Dec. 7th, 2010|05:30 pm]
Blizzard's furry friends


Unbelievably, for something that has been advertised and hyped for so long, Blizzard's World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is majorly bugged. The end quest sequence for the new Worgen race cannot be completed. This sequence includes

1. The Battle for Gilneas City
2. The Hunt For Sylvanas
3. Vengeance or Survival
4. Slowing the Inevitable
5. Knee-Deep
6. Laid to Rest
7. Patriarch's Blessing
8. Keel Harbor
9. They Have Allies, But So Do We

The Battle for Gilneas City is unplayable, so players cannot leave the zone. (A few people report that they were able to do it but ran into other problems afterwards. The vast majority cannot get the quest to work at all.)

The major selling point in Blizzard's ad campaigns was that this $39 expansion (after $49 for the original game plus two $49 expansions) offered two new races, the Worgen and the Goblins. So this is fully one half (or one-third, depending on how you weight an additional five levels) of the game that is broken, despite all the preparation and beta-testing said to have gone into it.

World of Warcraft has 12 million subscribers who pay upwards to $15 per month plus incidental charges for services that make airlines look downright philanthropic. There is no justification for Blizzard, with its money-grasping policies and execrable customer support, to release something this fucked up.

But I suppose it is almost to be expected.

Conspicuous consumering [Dec. 7th, 2010|01:29 am]
Blizzard's furry friends


Blizzard's much anticipated and much hyped World of Warcraft: Cataclysm was officially released at midnight (0:00 Tuesday, 7 December), and, not to be outdone, our local Fred Meyer hosted the launch with special hours (actually, 25 minutes--they were open 23:50 to 24:15 just to sell WoW) and a raffle. I had joked with Carol about there likely being donuts; I was pleasantly surprised to find they had both the chocolate and powdered-sugar variety - and generic cola, which I find superior to both Coke and Pepsi (though RC is by far the best).

Accurately anticipating the size of the teeming crowd of gamers, I arrived at the store 20 minutes or so before the event and sat in the parking lot listening to classical music on the radio while the line waiting outside in the cold swelled from six to eight. Just before the doors opened, I sauntered over and joined the ranks. Before the celebration was done, the crowd had grown to the impressive number of eleven!

Carol had already downloaded the update, so I was there just for the raffle (and, as it turned out, the donuts). I did not win (a free month of World of Warcraft online time), but anyone who wanted one got a free Energizer Bunny Christmas stocking, so I took one home to annoy the cat.

So, all in all, a much better experience than the Costco debacle chronicled earlier.

Practically a dungeon virgin [Nov. 28th, 2010|11:17 am]
Blizzard's furry friends


As one of my very few World of Warcraft dungeons, I ran Shadowfang Keep yesterday with a random group. As I expected, there was no coördination whatsoever. And not only was there no coördination--there wasn’t a word exchanged between the party members. The tank just ran from baddie to baddie, and the rest of us struggled to keep up with him to help him kill things.

I was there specifically to fulfill a Rogue quest, gathering three sets of materials so that a blacksmith could build me a specific weapon. Despite not having a clue where the party was going nor having a spare moment to take a breath and look around, I somehow managed to collect the three elements I needed. I could not, however, tell you how or when I picked any of them up. It’s just dumb luck that it worked out for me.

Fortunately, I knew (from previously talking to other players and watching Carol run a few dungeons) about Need versus Greed, so I didn’t embarrass myself in that respect (except once at the end when I hit Need by mistake and won a staff that I could not use).

After it was over (the only clue given was that the tank stopped running and stood in one spot), the dungeon leader said, “Your an idiot”, and disbanded the party. I don’t know whether he was talking to me, but I assumed he was, and I took it badly, as I do any criticism. I’m just built that way.

Anyway, I sent back, “At least I know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’. Do you have any *helpful* criticism to offer?” --but he had already logged off.

Ah, World of Warcraft, where most people ignore you, a lot piss you off, and a precious few are downright helpful.

It's the same old World of Warcraft [Nov. 24th, 2010|10:14 am]
Blizzard's furry friends


As a prelude to the release in early December of its "Cataclysm" expansion, Blizzard yesterday launched “the Shattering” patch for World of Warcraft. There has been a lot of hoopla and hype surrounding this, with much of the talk centering around how innovative and creative Blizzard is for taking such a bold step.

What the Shattering mounts to, however, is a cosmetic patch over a game structure that is fundamentally unchanged. Fundamentally? It isn’t changed at all. Orgrimmar is prettier than it was, Auberdine less so, parts of the map have been redrawn, and some regions have different-level monsters than before. There also appears to be a great deal more potential for pointless conflict between Horde and Alliance--Warsong Lumber Camp and Talendris Point, for two examples. Some of the graphics choices are an improvement; many of the trees, for instance, no longer look like transparent shells painted with bad leaf designs.

But this does not alter in any way the flatness of the core game mechanics. The Shattering and Cataclysm are just more of the same: Go out, Kill something, Collect the loot. Lather, rinse, repeat. Endlessly.

I’m not saying they shouldn’t have done it or that it wasn’t a helluva lot of work to achieve; I’m just saying that I don’t see anything particularly “bold and creative” about redrawing parts of the map and applying new textures. What I would like to have seen is something that requires some degree of skill and strategy, rather than just typing a key and having better gear than the other guy. Now that would be innovative.

private furry WOW servers? [Nov. 14th, 2010|09:29 pm]
Blizzard's furry friends

against my better judgment, my mate has convinced me to start playing WOW with him, and because of our lameness and lack of funds, we're looking for a good private server, preferably a furry-oriented one if possible... any suggestions? i'm posting for him because he doesn't have an account on lj, so i probably won't understand half of what y'all say about it, but i'll relay the message ^^ thanks!

Would any folks like to make a Horde toon on Shadow Council (RP, North America) to play with me and a few other furs there? My character name is Dieselcannon... (hunter) I also have "Strongbeef" (Druid).
