Where in the WoW and Two Other Questions

I have three questions for you today.

The first is: where in the World of Warcraft is this?

Where in WoW (03-12-08)

The second is: when Blizzard poster Hortus wrote this

Void Reaver intentionally no longer targets or faces players that he casts Arcane Orb on. This was done to fix a bug.

There is a bug in that there is currently no combat log message for him casting Arcane Orb (just the impact message), causing boss mods to not work. This will be fixed in a future patch.

… that’s complete bullshit, right? It’s not just me who thinks a boss flinging out 5k AE damage SECRETLY is crap? I can accept if they want to break boss announcement mods for some reason which only their leetness can understand, and I can accept that raiders have to watch the boss targeting to see who’s going to be the lucky one to take an orb to the face, but they (the royal Developers They) can’t have it both ways.

And why weren’t INTENTIONAL changes to a boss encounter IN THE PATCH NOTES? That’s why I suspect Hortus was given a line of bull to get rid of him and his pesky Void Reaver questions.

Those are all secondhand reports too, by the way. We haven’t been to Tempest Keep since the patch so I don’t know firsthand what’s going on. I only know that much because of the updates on the Deadly Boss Mods page.

And the third question is: Joining and leaving ten guilds in under one year is a lot, isn’t it?

Remember the lastest Love Between Crazies drama in my guild from a few weeks back? Paladin man-whore #1 had left our guild because his (latest) in-game romance had gone sour and the object of his affections had chosen another paladin man-whore in our guild. About a week after I told you about that nonsense, she told us that we “didn’t appreciate her” and left the guild too.

And what does “we don’t appreciate her” mean anyhow? I suspect it means we didn’t shower 150% of our attention on her.

Whatever. See ya. Then she pressured PRESSURED paladin man-whore #2 to leave the guild also and join her new guild so they could game happily ever after. Now that part was a shame because he was a good player and a fine raider, but that’s how these things go.

Because I’m a shit, I did a little research and checked out her guild history on WarcraftRealms.com and discovered that she had joined and left ten guilds in under one year on our server alone — she had transferred here from another server and Lord knows how many guilds she chewed through over there.

Ya ya, I know. I should have checked the guild history BEFORE we let her in the door, but when your paladin man-whore comes to you with his helm in his hand and asks you to guild his PVP honey, you’d say yes too.

Well. Both man-whore and I learned a lesson with that one, because she’s dumped him and is coupled with one of their officers in eternal two-week gaming bliss and man-whore got /gkicked at her behest.

The biggest shame of all: we didn’t get even one naked picture from her.

    The hatchery by the Teldrassil docks! (Do I get extra marks for being a hordie?)

    I don’t know the first question.

    The second one is most likely because a developer oversight (or some internal tweak gone wrong) and left a bug. And there is no way to push a patch that quickly in such a big company, so it is postponed.

    The third one, I feel for you man. It will be really great if you can get some of the pics, like last one 🙂

    I just have to ask: where do you FIND these people?

    Northshire Abbey, doing their Welcome to WoW quests. We like to get them early, before they’re jaded and bitter.

    Ten guilds in a year is a lot.

    Did the paladin come back to your guild? (Or try to?)

    Warcraftrealms is where I’ve been checking a lot of our recent applicants. We had one that basically hopped guilds every week for a year, then applied to us. Most of the guilds being those “Join us in random_spelled_pop_culture_reference! Send tell for invite!”, but now that he was 70, he wanted some raidin’ action.

    Pass.

    Um, did you read that wrong? Let’s look again:

    There is a bug in that there is currently no combat log message for him casting Arcane Orb (just the impact message), causing boss mods to not work. This will be fixed in a future patch.

    They didn’t mean to break the bossmods, and they’re gonna fix that.
