has served us well, gave those of us who’d never seen it the chance to do Naxxramas, it gave us the awesomeness of Ulduar, the trash-free Trial of the Crusader and the cool Icecrown Citadel. But its time has come to an end, in a matter of months we’ll be sitting down to try the first raid of Cataclysm.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news… But the first Cata raid is going to be pretty easy.
Now before you get your panties all up in a bunch and hit the forums to QQ allow me to explain now only why it will happen, but why it must happen.
Everybody wants their WoW account to be safe right? It’s not
like anyone ‘wants’ their account to be hacked, to lose their characters, gold and gear and be forced to spend hours on the phone to Blizzard’s Support Line. Yet how many of your accounts are actually safe?
I’m not trying to scare you or anything, but for most of you reading this your attempts to stay safe are woefully inadequate. I’m going to tell you why and what you can do about it.

Interesting question I seen on MMO-Champion. Do I want WoW to stay on top?
World of Warcraft is a game I’ve sunk years into and spent a lot of money on, in subscriptions and expansions. I’ve made some very good friends there, friends I’ve carried out of the game and into the real world. I’ve written articles about the game, reviews about it. I’ve written a comic about it and various game design articles about various features of WoW.
I have invested a lot into this game. But do I want it to stay on top?
The answer is No.

Now we get to something that brings everyone’s blood to a boil at least once. Class Balance. The balance of barricades, the seesaw of strength, the whack-a-mole of warfare, like the game Lights Out.
Eh? Epic not really epic? They look purple to me… Oh I see! You
meant in the “They’re so common, they’re not epic anymore” category. Ah right… But how and why? Let’s look at that.
Once upon a time instance bosses dropped greens, not blues. Rares were pretty damn rare and epics were unheard of. Someone who had an epic was the centre of attention with everyone inspecting him and patting him on the back and ooing and aahing over how much of an awesome player he must be to have gotten an epic.
What changed? Most would argue it’s that the game has gotten easier and epics are being handed out like candy. But is that what really happened? Or is there more to it?
The sound of fighting echoes across Stratholme as the Scarlet Crusade fi
ght their daily fight with the Scourge that remains in the city. The flames lick across the ruined buildings unimpeded by the rain that showers down. Even after three years, the streets are still strewn with mutilated corpses, both human and undead. In the upper floor of one building there sits another corpse in an old rocking chair, just watching the streets below, unbothered by the fighting, the rain or the fire.
The corpse waves his hand, summoning a bolt of flame which incinerates a passing ghoul. A soft chuckle escapes his lips as the screaming ghoul runs into a crowd of Scourge setting them all ablaze. “Which resident were you, I wonder,” he mutters as he immolates another ghoul, “so many people, so many lives lost” he sighs, blasting another ghoul. He scowls, crushing the arm of the chair he sits in, the wood turning to splinters in his fingers he climbs to his feet and roars, “HOW LONG!! HOW LONG TILL I HAVE MY VENGEANCE.” roaring he slams his arms down his sides as the rain turns from water to fire, adding to the flames already consuming the city.
Devil’s Advocate – Someone who takes an opposing position for the sake
of argument, regardless of whether they agree with the stance they defend or not. This column will do just that, take a point of QQ and argue the opposite side.
“A bright and shiny new day. I feel like playing some World of Warcraft.”
“Now. Who shall I play today? I think my Paladin, let’s see if I can get a raid group and beat up some monsters. I certainly hope I don’t run into an awkward player demanding insane achievements.”
