WotLK nominated for BAFTA, wins one out of three at AIAS

WotLK nominated for BAFTA, wins one out of three at AIAS World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King has been nominated for yet another award -- this time, Wrath has received a nod for Best Game of the Year by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Videogame awards. lotro gold UK residents can vote for the game right now over on their site, and a nice set of prizes, including a big TV, a Playstation 3, and copies of all ten nominated games going to one lucky voter. Voting is closed on March 9th, and the winners should be announced soon after that. And in case you've been wondering about the AIAS nominations we mentioned a little while ago, Blizzard is going about 33%. While they did win the award for best MMO game of the year (beating out Warhammer Online), Wrath of the Lich King lost its other two categories -- Left 4 Dead was awarded Best Computer Game, and Metal Gear Solid 4 won for Best Music over the Lich King's silky tones. Guess you can't win them all. But considering that the second expansion of a years-old MMO is still garnering honors, Blizzard has nothing to be ashamed of. Tips on completing Higher Learning Higher Learning is one of the most peaceful achievements in the game (all you have to do are read a few books that spawn around Dalaran), but it's no less desirable for that -- the achievement grants a miniature Arcane Elemental pet that looks awesome. lotro goldTeniblue over on WoW Ladies has a few good tips if you're trying to get all edumacated in Dalaran -- she's got links to two addons (including the perfectly-named Dalaran University) to use to help you track spawn times, and she's got a link to Breanni's great guide over on WarcraftPets.com (which our own Allison R. touched on briefly in a recent OverAchiever post). lotro gold What's fun about this achievement is that reading the books won't delete them, so it can be very social -- people have created #bookclub channels on many servers to keep track of when and where books are appearing in the city. That makes it a lot more fun than the, say, cooking daily quest that sends you after mushrooms in the sewers. It actually makes this social game, well, social. So next time you see a book sitting around the city, be sure to give a shout to the chat channel -- here's one in-game situation where everybody can benefit from a little extra chatting. lotro gold The official World of Warcraft community site has added a couple more galleries of the cool Wrath of the Lich King mounts for those of you who love a little eye candy now and then. You might recall that they posted a gallery of the Hog/Chopper mounts last week or so, and this week they've continued that trend with a gallery for Flying Carpets and a gallery for Proto-Drakes. Neither of these two galleries have anything nearly as cool as the two Tauren in silly hats and lumberjack shirts contained within the Motorcycle gallery, but there's still some neat pictures. The one above is one of my personal favorites. They're kissing or possibly trying to eat eachother! How sweet! I'm also a big fan of the flying carpet that's either shooting or absorbing purple lightning bolts. You'll need to go to the official site to see that one, I'm afraid. lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold maple story mesos maple story mesos maple story mesos maple story mesos maple story mesos maple story mesos maplestory mesos maplestory mesos maplestory mesos maplestory mesos maplestory mesos maplestory mesos maple story gold maple story gold maple story gold maple story gold maple story gold maple story gold maplestory gold maplestory gold maplestory gold maplestory gold maplestory gold maplestory gold maple story money maple story money maple story money maple story money maple story money maple story money maplestory money maplestory money maplestory money maplestory money maplestory money maplestory money buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maplestory mesos buy maplestory mesos buy maplestory mesos buy maplestory mesos buy maplestory mesos buy maplestory mesos maple story maple story maple story maple story maple story maple story maplestory maplestory maplestory maplestory maplestory maplestory buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos buy maple story mesos cheap mesos cheap mesos cheap mesos cheap mesos cheap mesos cheap mesos maple story shop maple story shop maple story shop maple story shop maple story shop maple story shop cheap msmesos cheap msmesos cheap msmesos cheap msmesos cheap msmesos cheap msmesos sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade

WoW, Casually: Top 5 casual improvements in 2008

WoW, Casually: Top 5 casual improvements in 2008 Robin Torres writes WOW, Casually for the player with limited playtime. 2007 truly was the year of the casual, but 2008 continued the trend of Blizzard developers to make more content accessible for those of us with limited playtime. The biggest patches for us (and everyone else) were 2.4 and 3.0.2. And there was that little expansion that happened. Overall, there is more for us to do in less time. Here is my list of the top 5 WoW improvements for us this past year. lotro gold 5. Standardized Gear This didn't happen until the Echoes of Doom patch, like most of the items on this list. We are now able to use more gear that drops because many of the stats have combined. Spell Damage and Healing have combined into Spellpower making caster and healer gear very similar. Crit and Hit Ratings now affect both Melee and Spells, so a lot of gear can now be used for multiple specs. Raiders may complain that this means more classes fighting over instance drops, but more gear usable by more people is really only a good thing. lotro gold 4. Events Events got bigger and better this year which is always helpful for the casual player. We earned more experience and had more fun than ever before. The improvements of the Midsummer Fire Festival and Hallows End as well as the addition of the Scourge Invasion periodically made our gameplay more varied and more productive. I hope that the future brings even more of these holidays because they are my favorite part of the game. 3. Death Knights We didn't get this new class until Wrath of the Lich King, but it was worth the wait. Overpowered while leveling and easy to play, Death Knights have completely changed the game. Anyone with a level 55 of any class can make a DK on that realm (and in the future, on any realm) and everyone has. The leveling is fast and furious, making those of us with limited playtime able to see so much more of the game. lotro gold If you haven't made a DK, then you are one of the very few and you should find out what you are missing. 2. Achievements If you like collecting Achievements, there is always something for you to do. Bored on your Druid? Port over to Moonglade and love a bunch of critters. Only have a few minutes to play before dinner? Ride around a lower level zone until you've discovered the whole thing. Even if you don't go for Achievements, they have still made the game better for you. All of the old dungeons are regularly getting cleared these days just so that people can get their Achievements. This means that casuals are able to see previous endgame content that they missed out on -- without the 5 hour wipefests that the raiding guilds had to originally go through. Though Achievements did not get implemented until patch 3.0.2, it is hard to remember the game without them. lotro gold 1. Dailies Blizzard implemented some Daily Quests in 2007, but 2008 saw a real push to fill the game with Dailies. Starting in Patch 2.4, Fishing got added to the Outland Daily Quests and the Isle of Quel'Danas was one big goldearning Daily Quest-Fest. And now with Wrath we have even more to choose from: Crafting Dailies, PvP Dailies, Faction Dailies... I'm sure there are some I'm missing. They earn us recipes, experience, honor, faction and gold, gold, gold! You can afford even the most expensive mounts in just a few weeks with diligent daily questing. lotro goldSure, doing the same quests every day can get tedious, but now there are so many, you can vary them if you like. Being a casual at max level used to mean you had nothing to do but PvP, but now, if you can't get into the shorter instances or just don't want to group, you can still do your dailies and progress your character as far as professions, gold, faction, etc. Of course, every change that benefits the casual player benefits everyone, so we're not hoarding all of the fun for ourselves. Raiders are out there alongside us getting Achievements and doing their Dailies when not leveling Death Knights or saving reindeer. Fun game is fun. I predict more casual friendly content this year and all the years hereafter in our favorite MMO, which is hardly a risky prediction. So, stop smirking, Captain Obvious, and let's go play our DKs. lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade

Military center tracking Santa's sleigh ride

Military center tracking Santa's sleigh ride COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Who says Santa Claus doesn't exist? The military personnel charged with being the eyes in the sky are certainly acting like he does — and they've been joined on the Internet by millions of believers. lotro gold Even doubters have reason to pause when they hear the North American Aerospace Defense Command — or NORAD, which monitors air and space threats against the U.S. and Canada — is in charge of the annual Christmas mission to keep children informed of Santa's worldwide journey to their homes. "They challenge it, but only to a point," said Senior Master Sgt. Sharon Ryder-Platts, 49, who for five years has been a Santa tracker, taking calls from those wanting to know the location of jolly old St. Nick. lotro gold According to NORAD, Santa began his latest flight early Wednesday at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean. Historically, Santa visits the South Pacific first, then New Zealand and Australia. NORAD points out that only Santa knows his route. Last year, NORAD's Santa tracking center answered 94,000 calls and responded to 10,000 e-mails. About 10.6 million visitors went to the Web site, which can be viewed in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese and Chinese. lotro gold HARBIN, China (Reuters) – China's freezing northern city of Harbin is building what organisers say is the world's largest Santa Claus ice sculpture. The giant Father Christmas, 160 metres (525 ft) long and 24 metres high, centres on an enormous face of Father Christmas, complete with flowing beard and hat. Its huge size and unseasonably warm temperatures have made the job especially challenging, said Tang Guangjun, one of the sculptors. "It is even bigger and higher than last year's, and more difficult. The weather swings between warm and cold, so it becomes very wet and slippery on the ice. It is very dangerous for us," he told Reuters Television. lotro gold Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province on the edge of Siberia, is one of China's coldest places. Winter temperatures can drop to below minus 35 degrees Celsius (- 31 F). Every year the city plays host to a world-renowned ice festival. But the effects of global warming are taking a toll as the snow and ice now melt more rapidly than in the past. Organisers said they had to artificially make snow for the Santa Claus sculpture. Still, the sculpture has attracted thousands of tourists from all over the country who want to enjoy a white Christmas despite worries over the economic downturn. lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade

我不抵制法国货

我不抵制法国货 法国货 对于法国总统会见达赖,新华社是这样报道的:法国总统萨科齐不顾中方反复耐心的工作和多次严正交涉,6日执意同窜访欧洲的达赖喇嘛见面,此举极不明智,严重伤害了中国人民的感情,对中法关系也造成损害。中国人民的感情确实受到了严重伤害,有网友们的愤怒为证——他们在网上高呼:抵制法国货!让我们用行动捍卫民族的尊严!   网友们的心情可以理解,我不知道这种愤怒情绪会不会演变成街上的抗议行动,但就我个人而言,我不抵制法国货。  首先是因为我压根买不起法国货。法国货多奢侈品,商场里的一件“法国品牌”的衣服,顶我好几个月的工资,对于我这样一个为了饭碗而奔忙的人来说,哪里舍得花那钱?如果说买不起也算是一种抵制,那我倒是经常“抵制”的。如果将抵制等同于爱国,不知道那些一毕业就面临失业的青年是不是也以此来爱国。反正,兜里空空如也,本就买不了什么东东,抵制与不抵制都那么回事,乐得个嘴巴快活。  真正腰包充实的人抵制法国货吗?我真的很怀疑,他们是奢侈品的真正消费者,要让他们抵制撩人的法国香水,迷人的法国服装,醉人的法国葡萄酒,是一件多么困难的事!他们中有些人不仅不会在国内抵制,还要假“考察”之名跑到巴黎去狂扫法国货呢。有钱人用法国货正起劲,没钱人闹哄哄搞抵制,这难道也是一种“中国特色”?   血脉贲张抵制之时,不要忘了一点,我们抵制法国货,法国人同样可以抵制中国货。谁说这世界上只有我们可以抵制别人,不允许别人抵制我们?这就要算一笔抵制的账,看谁更得好处。这么多年来,中国的经济在很大程度上依靠出口与投资拉动,一旦别人抵制起中国货,出口下滑恐怕会很严重。我不知道,中国从法国等欧盟国家每年进口多少亿元的商品,每年又出口欧盟多少亿元的商品,如果抵制的结果是伤敌一千,自损一万,这种只要面子不顾死活的抵制不要也罢。  说实话,我不抵制法国货,如果别人的东西物美价廉,甚或是高科技的好东西,为什么一定要抵制呢?有时候我反倒要抵制国货,比如抵制有毒的国产奶粉,抵制价高质次的产品。  我不抵制法国货,还因为我怕这抵制只是应景的叫卖,当不得真。中日关系紧张的时候,有人也曾抵制过日货,发誓一辈子不买日货,可回头一看,那更像一场自娱自乐的闹剧,该买日本车的还在买,该用日本电器的还在用,该吃日本料理的还在吃。所以,在我看来,这种拿不买东西要挟别人的玩法,自以为很礮,其实一点新意都没有,刚开始人家可能还“以为神,避林中窥之”,玩多了人家就知道,有什么了不得! 有一点要强调,抵制法国货 不等于抵制家乐福,家乐福只是个法国品牌罢了,里面卖的90%以上都是中国货,90%以上的工作人员是中国人,我们要抵制家乐福,无异于抵制国货,抵制同胞,用抵制一个法国品牌来砸烂同胞的饭碗,伤害自己的利益,这其实并不聪明。 lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Horde Warrior

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Horde Warrior This installment of All the World's a Stage is the thirteenth in a series of roleplaying guides in which we find out all the background information you need to roleplay a particular race or class well, without embarrassing yourself. lotro gold The Warrior is not merely a well-trained fighter who loves his weapons and armor and takes great care to wield them well -- inside each one is a boiling cauldron of rage and passion. By and large, warriors feel at home on the battlefield because it is the one place where they can express themselves, where they can finally let go of all the restraint society imposes on them and unleash all their emotions. Without his raging passion, a person would be much better suited to some calmer form of work -- it is this unquenchable fire which sustains a warrior, driving him into action in the midst of mortal peril. lotro gold Alliance warriors tend to focus more on training and weapon mastery, sometimes downplaying their rage so much that you hardly even see it. Some warriors like this (even in the Horde sometimes) may be so stoic that even they do not believe that they have any emotions whatsoever, although I doubt anyone who watched them fight could really agree. Something's got to make you willing to put on all that armor and risk death every day. But Horde warriors are more likely to display their rage, bloodlust, and other aggressive emotions much more freely. Of course, it's possible that a Horde warrior could have a collection of stuffed animals, write poetry, and even play hopscotch with children, but their rage lurks deep within, and the essence of their profession is to let it loose. lotro gold Orcs The image of the orc warrior calls to mind the blood-red-eyed growling monstrosity roaring with demonic bloodthirstiness and wielding his great axes with abandon in his single-minded pursuit of nothing but death and destruction. For a time, while under the control of the Burning Legion, many orcish warriors were like this, but now even the wildest of barbarians remembers the need to rein in the anger from time to time. Orc warriors (or, at least many of them) are a civilized people when all is said and done, though you might not know it if you only saw them in battle. Grom Hellscream is probably the most famous orcish warrior, a blademaster who combined immense skill with unbridled passion for the fight. Durotan, Thrall's father, was the very image of the restrained warrior who put the reasons for fighting above the passion of battle itself. lotro gold Trolls Trolls are most likely to blend voodoo beliefs and ritual in with their battle. Their religion is savage and primal, and it fuels their fury with beliefs about revenge, death, and the desires of the spirits. They do not have the demon-possessed history of the orcs, but they are sometimes equally viscous. They are well known as berserkers who get more and more dangerous the more wounded and cornered they become. The most famous troll warriors are Vol'jin, leader of the Darkspear tribe, and Zul'jin, ruler of the Amani trolls in Zul'Aman, although both of them are witch-doctors in addition to being warriors. Vol'jin is by far the more approachable of the two, known for his wisdom and intelligence. Zul'jin on the other hand is well known for his all-consuming hatred of the blood elves and anyone associated with them. Any troll warrior is likely to follow their example of intense cunning, likely with a good mix of voodoo rituals and ruthlessness thrown in too. Tauren Regardless of their immense size, and the apparent limitlessness of their battle fury, the tauren are among the least likely to be totally consumed by rage in battle. At all times they are connected to the earth and are intensely aware of practical concerns as well as bloody ones. A tauren warrior's sense of spirituality and religion is almost diametrically opposed to that of the trolls, and he fights to bring natural order to the chaos, even if outwardly he seems like a giant savage monster to some. lotro gold One of the most famous tauren warriors is Tagar, Cairne Bloodhoof's second in command, who helped guide and command the tauren in times of crisis. Cairne himself could also be considered a warrior, though he may also be a druid or something else instead. Undead Many Forsaken warriors remember a lot of what being a human or elven warrior used to be, with all their talk about honor, justice, the glory of Lordaeron and all that. They may have been called Knights or Champions at one point, or they might have just been regular old guards and soldiers, but now all that has faded away for most of them. Who's to say what really remains? Do Forsaken warriors feel anger and rage the same way a living person might? Undoubtedly, many are driven by a desire for vengeance against the Scourge and perhaps even humanity as well. But this rage likely does not burn in them the same way that an orc's might -- rather it is cold and calculating. An undead warrior's rage not unbridled passion or anger so much as it is almost intellectual, so very sharp and chilling that it cuts like a scalpel. Additional notes Of course there are blood elf warriors in the Warcraft setting, but for various reasons none of them are player characters, so we won't touch on them in this article except to suggest that someone who wants to play a warrior-like blood elf choose a paladin, a rogue, or perhaps best of all, a death knight, for a similar type of character archetype. Also, keep in mind that none of what I say in this or any other article is the one-and-only truth. This is not the one true way to roleplay -- rather it is a proposed standard based on lore and common sense, to which you are welcome to contribute your own ideas and or disagreements in the comments below. These are places to begin when you think about how your race and class interact to make your character who he or she is, not limitations I'm trying to impose upon your creativity. Perhaps these articles can help you think of a reason why your character is different from the standard case. In fact, many of the most interesting characters will break these molds even as they to conform to the same lore and common sense they are based upon. lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade

Activision doing well, Blizzard has spent $200M in upkeep on WoW

Activision doing well, Blizzard has spent $200M in upkeep on WoW Activision Blizzard (the parent company of Blizzard Entertainment) held an Analyst's Day earlier this week (in which a bunch of stock analysts sit down to crunch numbers and predict the future), and they came out of it really well -- according to those in the know, Activision Blizzard is set to do very well in the future. Buoyed by Blizzard and their other big franchises (do we have to name them by now? Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, etc.), 99% of analysts give the stock a "Buy" or "Hold" rating, and many were impressed with what Activision told them about their releases in 2009. And we got another interesting insight into just what kind of money Blizzard is looking at -- they reported on the call that since 2004, they've spent $200 million on the upkeep of World of Warcraft alone. That includes things like payroll, customer support, and hardware updates, of which there have been plenty of those. $200 million does seem like a lot, but of course when you consider just how much revenue they've pulled in via subscriptions (ten million players paying up to $15 a month, though Blizzard has all kinds of different subscription plans around the world), $200 million over four years isn't all that much. We're told, though, that that money doesn't include any development costs (pre-release, and we're not sure if it includes patch/expansion development or not, either). And it certainly doesn't include Blizzard-wide costs, like their new HQ, or what they spend on advertising, promotion, and those big events held around the world. There's no question, however, that there's plenty of money coming both in and out of Blizzard's doors. 15 Minutes of Fame is our look at World of Warcraft players of all shapes and sizes – from the renowned to the relatively anonymous, the remarkable to the player next door. Tip us off to players you'd like to hear more about. Just a few weeks ago, we published a post about two guys who connected their treadmills to their computers to find out just what it would be like to really take a little jog down the road from Shadowglen to Darnassus. (Hilarity ensued.) But that got us thinking ... What if these guys had actually kept playing that way, turning their WoW-time into a potent weight-loss strategy? It turns out that quite a few players have done exactly that. Back in 2006, The Weight Lifter lost more than 40 pounds with two-hour "WarBiking" sessions on an exercise bike while playing WoW. ("If things got crazy -- as in, I ended up running for my life in the game -- I would end up peddling really fast on the bike. LOL, I know, kinda weird. You try it and see what you do!" WoW Insider Show Episode 55: The PvE to PvP transfer The latest episode of the WoW Insider Show is now up for your listening enjoyment over on WoW Radio. Unfortunately, Totalbiscuit (who runs things over there) tells us that they're having more issues with a Google false positive of malware, so this week will be the perfect week to jump on into iTunes and both subscribe to and review our show from there if you haven't yet. Right there in your music player, you can find all of our shows so far, and you can subscribe to get any new ones we do for free right on your new iPod touch (or whatever ya got). Topics on last week's show include: The usual email answering: we answered questions about why there are no Auction Houses in Shattrath or Dalaran, what to do when your guild won't let you roll on damage gear when they ask you to heal, and why getting Champion tabards at Exalted would be a horrible idea. We talked about PvE to PvP transfers and why they might be a problem, but probably won't be. Racial abilites (and the suggestion to free them up a bit) came up in conversation We hit on Mages and why they're thrilled with Mirror Image (stay tuned for more Mage talk next week). And finally we asked around for AH tips, so if you want to make more money on the AH, definitely listen in. lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro gold lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro lotro buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold buy lotro gold lotr lotr lotr lotro lotro lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotro gold lotro gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lotr gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold lord of the rings online gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold sell wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold wow gold sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key sell wow cd key trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow gold trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade wow trade sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maple story mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maplestory mesos sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story gold sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maple story money sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory gold sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money sell maplestory money maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maplestory trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade maple story trade Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Age of Conan Gold Age of Conan Gold Age of Conan Gold Age of Conan Gold Age of Conan Gold Age of Conan Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Cheap Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Buy Aoc Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Cheap Age Of Conan Gold Age Of Conan Store Age Of Conan Store Age Of Conan Store Age Of Conan Store Age Of Conan Store Age Of Conan Store Aoc Aoc Aoc Aoc Aoc Aoc Buy Age Of Conan Gold Buy Age Of Conan Gold Buy Age Of Conan Gold Buy Age Of Conan Gold Buy Age Of Conan Gold Buy Age Of Conan Gold

Warriors will be cooling down faster in Northrend-WOW

Warriors will be cooling down faster in Northrend-WOW Which, I suppose, makes sense. It's cold up there. If you've been playing a warrior for a long time, you've probably gotten used to the way your three big class abilities work. Presently, Shield Wall, Retaliation and Recklessness are linked abilities with a shared 30 minute cooldown. This means if you use one of them you can't use any of the other two in addition to the one you used for half an hour. Not only has this restriction kept warriors from using any of their big cooldowns in Arenas, it also serves as an inhibitor in raiding and soloing and questing. You don't pop Shield Wall unless you're absolutely sure you're going to die, because then you won't have it for possibly two or three boss attempts. This will no longer be the case in Wrath. In a move that simultaneously nerfs and buffs these long-standing warrior abilities, the base effect of each has been reduced but their cooldown shortened to 5 minutes. The tooltips of each ability spell it out now. The duration of each has dropped to about 12 seconds (not a huge deal), Recklessness has lost its fear breaking ability, Shield Wall only reduces incoming damage by 50%, and Retaliation only hits 20 attacks now. Yes, these are all nerfs. But the upside of a 5 minute duration makes them far more friendly for use. You can pop shield wall on trash if needed and still have it for a boss. A fury warrior can use reck secure in the knowledge that he'll most likely have it back up by the time the boss hits execute range. And retaliation might even be viable for multi-mob tanking now! A little stance dancing and you don't have to fret that shield wall is gone for half an hour. To me, this is an awesome change. It makes those abilities less restricted and thus, makes me more willing to use them. BigRedKitty: Uvuros Daniel Howell contributes BigRedKitty, a column with strategies, tips and tricks for and about the Hunter class, sprinkled with a healthy dose of completely improper, sometimes libelous, personal commentary. So you're wondering just how much of a tank the new Tenacity hunter-pets are going to deliver. Well, we're gonna try a few things and let you know. We obtained a level 70 Warp Stalker and trained it up nicely. Welcome to Tanking Pet City, population, Us. First on the agenda, we're going to hunt down a beastie that, when we first found him, required a party of five to eliminate: Uvuros in Shadowmoon Valley. Uvuros is a 70 elite, has 69,000 health, and has a mean fire-breath spell. /hot! Can a hunter with a Tenacity-pet solo Uvuros? Let's try!
