In the “I can’t believe they even have the intelligence to turn a computer on” file, apparently some people are in disbelief that white items sold by a vendor named “Griftah” might not actually work.
Quote: “So I purchased the item and proceed to configure Itemrack to equip it anytime I eat or drink conjured food in hopes to regen my HP/Mana quicker. Well guess what, it doesn’t work!! I tested my mana regen rate BEFORE and AFTER equipping it and both times I remained at 346 mana every 2 sec.
*deep sigh* I guess I’m a fool for falling for this scam, but I’m really surprised and disappointed that Blizzard actually has NPCs in the game selling things that don’t work – especially when it costs 25g! Now I’m off to test the “Compassion Critter’s Friend” with my riding gear, although I highly doubt it will work either which puts me out another 20g.”
Obviously, we can’t be on every server watching the drama that goes down. We’ve got to hit level 70, and help our fish head shammy or BE pally guildies get up there to raid with us! So we depend on you, the readers, to sometimes find the good dirt for us. So to reward you for your great stories, this month we’re going to give the authors of the top two submitted bits of drama 60 day prepaid cards. That’s right, you show us how scary the World of Warcraft can be, and we’ll feed your addiction. We know that’s like having a track mark contest and giving the winner free heroin. Show us your best RP server melodrama, your best PVP server griefing bitchfest, whatever you’ve got.
Just use the handy submission form to your right, send any screenshots or additional files to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll take a look. We don’t care if it’s drama you’ve started, just make you submit it to us yourself before someone else does. We’ll throw up a public vote for drama submitted between now and February 18th, and voting will close on February 25th. The winners can have the card mailed to them or just the code emailed to them, their choice. Good luck!
Found over at AFK Gamer (the greatest WoW blog out there, and a must read for any raider.) Socks from Jaedenar posts, begging for help under the subject, “im a girl and im new to WoW.” Only, they do it from their male 60 pally by mistake, complete with pally sig and ctprofile link.
my character is lvl 22 right now..human rogue and im in re-ridge. i did all the easier solo quests and all i have left in re-ridge are the harder group quests. i guess im a bit shy when it comes to being in groups with people i dont even know so should i continue to complete those quests? or should i go to darkshirt and start doing solo quests there?
Whoops! They’re immediately called out on it, and delete the thread. Luckily, Foton from AFK Gamer took a screen shot (found here on Flickr (make sure you view it at original size)), and a furl archive (found here).
Chitsu, from Six Feet Deep on Dragonmaw, takes the levelling of his guild just a tad too seriously.
All members of the guild are expected to level to 70 as fast as humanly possible.
If you want to “experience the content” please do so after you have reached 70, or on another character.
Here is how we will be leveling:
You will log in to the game, and look for an officer. One of the officers will assign you to a 5 man group. The 5 man group will run the appropriate instance level over and over again until someone has to leave, at which point, an officer will assign a replacement.
No ‘grinding solo’
No “Checking out the new races”
If you are online, you will be expected to participate in one of the groups running 5 man instances.
The only exceptions to this will be if there are not enough people for you to group with, etc. There will be PLENTY of off-hours downtime to goof off if you wish, but during prime-time, I swear to Thrall I will /gkick your ass if you are screwing around with stupid #%*! instead of participating in the leveling grind.
He gets roundly mocked, as well deserved, but never seems to admit that he could possibly be the one at fault.
Especially funny are his comments about fairness being the reason behind this nazi-levelling regime: “Having the officers assign groups is the best way to assure balance, and the best way to avoid little cliques forming and causing people to be left out,” and that “SFD members are treated more like prized athletes than kids. It’s my job to provide clear direction and focus so that our team is all on the same page working toward the same goal. It’s called leadership.”
In a game with 7 millon plus players, drama of some type is inevitable, and usually constant. Hell, in any gathering of two or more people, drama of some type is inevitable, and usually constant. Even in this constant stream, however, there are some dramas that rise above to become known throughout the WoWsphere. They become… Classic WoW Drama.
There was a woman who really enjoyed playing WoW. She died of a stroke. Her friends and guild members decided to hold an online funeral for her, in-game, so that anyone who wished could log in and walk up to her and pay their respects. They held the funeral in Wintersprings (sic). They play on a PVP server. They announced the funeral on forums and chatlines.
Can you guess what happened?
Fayejin of Illidan dies in unfortunate circumstances (or at least internet dies, who knows.) A tribute is planned where people can pay their respects in-game.
Quote: “We will be having it at the Frostfire Hot Springs in Winterspring, because she loved to fish in the game (she liked the sound of the water, it was calming for her ) and she loved snow. If you would like to come show your respects please do. We’re planning some cool stuff and we’re going to make a video of it to show her family. 🙂 So I would appreciate it if nobody comes to mess things up.”
Quote: “she loved fishing.”
Quotes, cribbed from the video: “Yes, its real easy to be an asshole behind a keyboard and get away with it..Shows just how well shit clings to the asshole …Example: azchira and his band of dingleberries.”
“You are added to the to be camped list.”
“Congradulations you have stooped lower then any other guild in MMO history.”
“Your fucking trash, you are not good enuff to lick the dog shit from a beggers boots you fucking degenrate sorry excuses for mentaly retarded humans.”
“I hope azshira’s dad dies of a heart attack, then at the funeral some guy runs in naked and pushes the coffin over and runs around slapping people screaming LOL OWNED, then releases a video of it.”
“Seriously? Ya know why? Because you and all the rest of SN are real life pieces of shit that have nothing better to do then try to grief ppl as hardcore as possible. Instead of being REAL PVPers and entering BGs, you bitch out and gank lowbies and anally crave opportunities such as this one to make yourselves feel good inside, because IRL, ya’ll ain’t shit and ya know it.”
Serenity Now’s final words on the matter: “Sorry for your loss. Yes, we know we are assholes :D”
“Just to let you know, my regular penis is bigger than your boner.
Just ask your mom, she knows.”
“At least I got a mom, unlike your homo dad.”
Elitemaiden, former resident of Uldum currently plaguing Hyjal, is one of the top inspirations for the creation of this website. Every time I’ve brought up the idea of WoWDrama with compatriots from Uldum, she’s the first thing mentioned. The only problem is the sheer amount of drama that could be written about her, easily forming a tl;dr post.
In short, Elitemaiden is a sad and lonely woman who treats World of Warcraft as if it is real life. This is made hilarious by her playing on non-RP servers yet responding in character, her reporting of anyone who upsets her to Blizzard, and her amazing ability to piss off people faster than a poop-flinging monkey on PCP. In her world, anyone who plays Horde is evil, while she herself is a devout religious woman. She even compares herself transferring servers from Uldum to Hyjal to a missionary, going off into heathen lands. Add a bit of hormonal boycraziness, and you’ve got a drama delight that’s fun for the whole family!
Here’s a few of her most recent greatest hits, as well as some pertinent links to keep tabs on Uldum’s worst gift ever. Continue reading…
In addition to the previously mentioned Elitemaiden (we’ll get to her one day, we promise, it’s just a question of working out where to begin), another Uldum forum favourite is Raypower, an over-inflated-ego-wielding guild leader who in one ROFL-worthy thread threatened to sue people for slander, with her “90% winning rate” internet lawyer.
In a delicious crushing blow (I’m au fait with the lingo) to her ego, Raypower had her account hacked. Apparently, 3 months was a bit long for her to wait. Watch her get angry, get self-important, and ultimately, get owned by an MVP and Big Blue – “ I am sorry to say that these issues are extremely time sensitive and in this particular case it seems that we were not contacted concerning the status of the account until nearly three months had passed since the investigation had been concluded. The unfortunate delay in your notification of concerns relating to the outcome of the investigation has regrettably resulted in our inability to reinvestigate the account for additional damages.” Continue reading…
