Shiny Dragons and Whiney Babies

Blizzard are selling a lovely new mount in their store. It’s a dragon. And it’s gold. What’s not to love?!


Well judging by the comments on the announcement page on the Warcraft website, lots.

First off you get the “This should be a rare mount, how dare you make it available to all!!” people. Because there isn’t enough rare mounts in the game obviously, so all those special snowflakes must be traumatised as all hell. After all, how dare casuals get anything they feel only hardcore players deserve.

Second of all there are the “You want us to PAY for this mount? Don’t you get enough money off us Blizzard!!!” types. Well see, Blizzard aren’t forcing you to buy one of these mounts. But some of us don’t mind paying for something nice. “You are looooooooosers if you pay money for something in game!!” Listen dearie, I work 18 hours a week cleaning other people mess and serving beer to drunk people. I earn my money, so I’ll choose how to spend it. If I want to buy a shiny in game mount then I will. Which reminds me of a ‘friend’ of mine who called me dumb for playing WoW and paying £8.99 a month. Yet when I pointed out how much he spent a month on alcohol he got all offended. To me, that’s a far bigger waste of money, but it’s his money, he can spend it how he likes, and I’ll spend mine on what I like, with an intact liver and no hangover.

So to both those types whining about this mount, I’d like to say a big GET OVER IT. Now, where is my debit card…


LFR Loot Etiquette

I did my second ever LFR today along with a few of my fellow Enthusiasts. It was quite a surprise actually as the raid for the most part was smooth and above all polite. No name calling, even when we had a bit of an oops moment on some slimes. No wipes though, and people even put down refreshment tables and fish feasts. And lucky me, I got two upgrades, so yay!

There was one downer though. Hagara dropped two of the same token, the priest/paladin/other I can’t remember one. Me being me I rolled need on one and passed on the other. But one of the paladins rolled need on both and won both. Which started a whole load of QQing from one of healing priests. The paladin decided to keep both tokens, one for main spec and one for off spec. Now personally I do think this is unfair, but I wasn’t about to cause a whole load of drama over it.

So what do others think? Should the pally have kept both or handed one to someone else who needed the token for MS? Would you have rolled on both?
