2201  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 13, 2005, 09:41:29 PM
Quote from: "Freezer-TPF-"
I didn't realize that iRiver doesn't support audio books.  Does anyone know what it doesn't - is there some special format or copyright protection required?  I don't really use my portable players for that, but that's kind of a bummer.

Hmm, looks like audible.com support is indeed coming to the iRiver players.

Ya, I checked that out before deciding on iRiver.  I do play on using audible.com, so compatibility is a must.

I am happy so far with my 512M iRiver 795.  I like being able to select individual whole albums (folders) on the fly, and the FM tuner is pretty good.  It also gets great battery life with 1 AA battery, though the tradeoff is that it is not quite as tiny as the players with AAA batteries or internal batteries.  Sound and build quality is very good.  Mine was $150 at CC after rebate.


I went to CC today to buy that very player.  I had it in my hand and my fiance called and asked what I was doing.  I told her I was about to purchase an mp3 player to take on my first trip with my new job and she almost freaked out.  Come to find out, she has been planning on getting me one for a Wedding present.  I told her I didn't mind holding off at all and that it would be an awesome gift.  I did let her know that I want to pick it out though.  I don't want an iPod and that is probably what she would get me.  I want something with at least 1 gig of space, a built in radio and not big in size.  I am leaning toward an iRiver, mabye the new one with the color screen, or the one mentioned above.
2206  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 12, 2005, 05:27:20 PM
I actually just cancelled my order.  

I decided that I actually prefer a screen so i know the title of the song playing.  

I am going to look at other 1 gig flash mp3 players and decide.

Now, can you all explain iTunes to me?  what is so good about it?  

I have a ton of mp3s on my computer, which I using.  I also have an audio book I haven't finished yet, that I plan on ripping to mp3 and putting on the shuffle.  I should have no trouble doing that right?

No, you should have no trouble with the audiobook...in fact the new Shuffle is also Audible-backed, one of the reasons I went with an iPod when I bought an MP3 player.


Very good.  Man I hope it comes before Tuesday!
2208  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 12, 2005, 02:24:00 PM
I just ordered the gig version!  I paid extra for 2 day shipping, only to have it tell me after ordering that it may not ship for 1 to 2 weeks.  Hell, I wouldn't have paid extra for 2 day if I had known that.  I leave for Denver on Tuesday.  Really hope it comes in by then.

I just started a priest as well.  I'm only level 9 so far, but I am having a good time.  Where can I train wand?  Right now I am only using a 1h mace, and definitely want another weapon.


You don't need to train wand, you already have the wand "skill" in your abilities.  You should just be able to buy a wand to use it.  Remember a couple of things when you do:

1) You have to click on the wand skill to actually use the wand, after you have the wand equipped in your ranged slot

2) Your wand skill starts out at zero, so you have to use the wand several times (and have it be resisted) before it starts to become effective.

If you are looking for another new weapon, I would highly recommend training staves.  For the horde, this can be done at the weapon master in Thunder Bluff.  Staves seem to be much more effective than maces.

(edit -- I am pretty sure you need to be level 10 before you can learn any new weapon skills, so keep that in mind)


Awesome.  Thanks for the info.  I was leaning toward staves anyway, so I will for sure now.  The trainer is in Stormwind for Alliance, so i will stop by there this evening.  I haven't seen any wands at the AH, but maybe I am not looking at the right place.  

For priests, I need to look for things with bonuses in Spirit and intellect, right?  What else?

I have a Franklin Covey planner. It's very, very nice. I have the New Yorker pages in it as well, so I get a new cartoon every day slywink.

In addition, Covey offers discounts to a bunch of companies. So, if your company is well-known you can probably get some money off.

Anywho, if you have any specific questions let me know.


Thanks godhugh.  What planner do you have?  What size (classic, monarch etc.)?

Lastly, I am interested in having some blank tab dividers for whichever one I decide on to keep track of the clients I am responsible for.  Do they offer such a thing?

I just started a new job and I am responsible for a whole lot more than I was at my old one.  I used to just use my iPaq for planning and keeping up with things.  Now I feel I need something more, like a day planner.  I found one I like at Franklin Covey.

Do any of you have any experience with Franklin Covey?  Any other recommendations?  I would appreciate any insight.

Quote from: "Lee"
I disagree wholeheartedly. Dying should have very bad consequences such as experience loss and chance of losing your body. It stops people from doing stupid things like wandering into places they shouldn't be. If the cost is high it makes the game that much more exciting. I will never forget my first journey across Norrath at level 10 in EQ1. It was scary as hell and it gave me a real sense of accomplishment when I was done.

The people bitching about the death penalties in EQ1 were usually the players who couldn't level to save their lives.


The first time  took the boat to Auberdein from Darnassus, and walked to ironforge, you better believe  it gave me a real sense of accomplishment as well.

Guy made my decision a lot easier today and withdrew the offer, after talking to my boss about it.  She pays him $3,500 in rent every month so maybe that had something to do with it.  

Anyway, I was honestly leaning toward the other position when I came to work today so I'm very content with things now.  I look forward to starting on January 3!   smile

Quote from: "Eco-Logic"

So I send pet to attack target, Serpent Sting before the pet gets their, let the pet gain aggro, then unload into the mob.  Works well for me.


I prefer concussive shot first - that way if the pet doesn't get aggo right away, the mob is slowed as it runs toward me, giving Felix (my kitty) a few more shots to distract it.

It also lets me throw in a Serpent sting and a few extra auto shots.


Yea, I did that at first too.  Then I read somewhere to do serpent sting first, so I started doing that.

I guess either way is good, but if I serpent sting first, and the pet doesn't gain aggro right away, I then concussive shot it.

I believe so.  Also, you get less XP if you let your pet make the first attack.

You'll also notice that when a mob loses aggro and goes back to its original spot, it runs real fast and "evades" any attacks on it. It also will pick up no new aggro till its returned.


I love seeing it run away from me real fast after taking me down to little health. smile

Quote from: "Lockdown"
Eco -

My Hunter is 17th and doing the same quest (Idols?)

Two things:

1) Did you happen to see the Shaman and Berserkers on top of the site?  These guys are nasty.  If you want a little humility, take these guys on.  If you aggro them all,  you will experience Insta-death.  I think they are 20th.  I did this by accident yesterday.... it wasn't pretty!

2) The little valley right outside the town up there where all the lower level troggs hang out... you know the one?  If you haven't yet, go in there and just let loose.  Set your pet on aggressive and just go nutz.  It is so much fun, it's unbelievable.  I went through that whole valley yesterday and hit the little camps one by one.  When I was done, I turned around, and there were dead bodies everywhere.  The speed at which the Hunter can go through that valley is absolutely sick!    Tried it later with my 16th level Priest, just to compare....  it was really sad.   The Hunter is just flat amazing in certain situations.  If for some reason you wanted to collect cloth, this little valley is the key to your success.  You can get 20 pieces of cloth in no time flat here.  

LD


Yup, same quest!  The Shamans are nasty.  I took out a few though.  I think that is when my cat Sly was killed.  They hit the ground and he caught on fire and died a few moments later.  

I don't know where the valley you're talking about is.  I know where all these low level "Rat Vermin" things hang out outside of the town and I went crazy on them the same way.  They all drop linen cloth and copper.  Not sure if you know or not but a 20 stack of Linen Cloth sells pretty well at the AH.  Where are these troggs you're talking about though?  They drop wool cloth if I'm not mistaken and it sells really well.  My objective right now is to make money.  All kinds of money.  It's fun and I'm able to level up while doing it most of the time.  I really like the AH, but I think they should allow you to input a "Max Bid" and handle it like eBay.  If they fix that in a patch & allow me to check it from work I'll be set.  My home base is Thelsamar only because it's so nice around there, and far less laggy than Ironforge.

Quote from: "warning"
I think they follow you for awhile then they lose their aggression toward you.  When that happens they run back to the place where you first encountered them.  Monsters don't tend to become aggressive again until they are back at their spawn point.
I've walked past some very high level monsters who were running back to their spawn point and they never even gave me a second glance.

As far as pet death, other than the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals jumping your case, there's no worries.  Mine sometimes dies several times a night.  I keep a stock of fishies and that makes him happy again.


Yea, I am never low on food thanks to being able to fish anywhere.  What level are you now warning?  

Thanks for the info on the mobs.  Nice to know!  So those guys had no reason to be mad at me as they didn't get touched.

This game is so freaking great.  I can't believe how much fun I have with it.  

If they would allow me to check the AH from work I would be set!
2233  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Question - Hunter on: December 20, 2004, 04:10:05 PM
So last night I beat the Ironbald Excavation Site Quest as a level 16 hunter, and all the mobs were at least 18, most being 19 and one 20.  I had planned on grouping with a guild mate, but he was called away for family business so I decided to go at it alone.  I took my time and used my track humanoids to ensure I didn't get jumped by 2 Troggs at once.  I died 1 time while doing it and my poor pet died like 3 times.  

Any time I accidentally trained 2 troggs at once I would run back to the campsite and go around this tent so they couldn't catch me.  Eventually they would give up and go back to the site.  The last time I did that there were other players at the campsite and they weren't too happy about me bringing the Troggs into the camp.  The thing is the Troggs didn't pay any attention to them and went back to the site.  

Why did the Troggs just ignore them?  I'm glad they did, but it doesn't make much sense.  They normally aggro to anything that moves near them.  

Also, are there any other negatives to letting the pet die, other than mana costs and the food it takes to feed it back to happiness after you revive it?
