Then don't.  Just use Hulu on the PC.  

Sorry for not being up to date on what Jag subscribes to.  The newsletter went out recently too.  I must have just ignored it.  I know that's no excuse however.   icon_frown

I am looking forward to Jagapalooza though!

Netflix, Xfinity On Demand and Amazon Prime.

Don't forget again!

They did some surveys and it's looking pretty equal with a slight weight toward Exile. I'm going to join the GAF guild which is pve Dominion.

Did you pick a specific server?  And what is the GAF guild?

I'll be doing the GAF guild as well.

While that's a nice offer, be careful about making this type of representation. They have ways of making your life financially and personally miserable if you refuse a legitimate court order.

New warchief is Vol'jin and I think Jaina Proudmore is going to be following Arthas path and will be the next big baddie for the last expansion before WoW 2

There will be 2 more expansions. 90-95 and 95-100. There have been hints about going back to fight the demons in their own dimension this time or maybe down to Azshara.

I've been playing a bit with Pet Battles which have been surprisingly addictive and jumping in and out of the new raids. With the Looking for Raid concept and raids broken into small wings, it only takes about an hour or so to knock out some easy raid content. Some nice solo stuff that's been put in so there is always something interesting to do. The latest patch added an island where you can gear every 90 you have to raid quality gear, so gearing isn't a concern at this point either.

I'm taking a basic One a Day "Men's" Vitamin. imho, the main problem is the vitamin industry is not regulated/inspected. The box/bottle CLAIMS it has this that and the other vitamin. It can claim to cure cancer and grow hair on your bald head, etc. But there's no testing to speak of. Nobody is crunching your vitamin in a test tube to verify it actually has anything in it at all. We could all just be swallowing/chewing sugar pills for all we know.

That's not actually true.

Hit 60 last night...only the 2nd time in my gaming career that I've maxed an MMO character.   icon_cool  The SP storyline has really lost steam towards the end, and with the promise of additional character advancement gone, I'm not sure I'll bother to push through and wrap it up.  I'd definitely say I got my money's worth and would certainly recommend it to anyone on the fence.

I'll be interested to come back to it a few months from now and check out the Foundry content once people get more familiar with using it.

Yep, hit 60 today on my Wiz. 45 on my Cleric and 22 on my Rogue. Think I'll hang it up for awhile too.

You don't need to grind it. It's just another little 'mini-game' by doing a node hunt. You can get some fast profession mats either for yourself or to sell. Sometimes when I'm tired of questing or PvP, I'll mix it up with some node farming. Just another thing to do for variety.

The Profession bonus is also only 1/2 hour long and pops up at various times during the day. The nice thing with the low level areas is that you can't aggro the creatures even if you stand on them.

Farming, grinding, same basic thing. In Rift I used to run circuits to collect mats to create whetstones for the guild. Horrible waste of time.

Not to mention what's being done here is essentially an exploit.

How is farming items an exploit? I've done it in every MMO. Typically by the time you finish a circuit, your node has reappeared. Also the instance change is on a timer, so they are aware of the ability to instance change to reset nodes.

I am confused about some equipment levels... I have a blue L9 dagger, that no matter what seems to be recommended over my found green daggers, even though the damage is higher on the greens and so are the bonus effects.. any idea why?

Because Cryptic is stupid.

Price to the vendor is the ONLY thing the 'recommended' system looks at. The ONLY thing.

Switching gears for a moment... There is a lot of lore in the game - is any of it from the Neverwinter RPG games? I'm really not up on my D&D at all. Did the Sword Coast exist prior to the Baldur's Gate PC games? I mean, there's no "canon" when it comes to D&D outside what is the rulebooks, right?

The lore is all from the Forgotten Realms modules and books. The game story itself runs parallel to the Neverwinter series of books which I actually was reading before I even knew about the game (or realized there was a tie in). The books are actually pretty good and take place about 100 years after the events in the earlier Drizzt books (yes, I have a guilty pleasure for bad pulp fantasy biggrin).

I may have to check those out eventually.  I just noticed they released a lot of the older FR books on the Kindle, so looks like I may be re-reading a bunch of the older series,:The Moonshae Trilogy, The Empires Trilogy, Shandril's Saga, Maztica, The Avatar series, Finders Trilogy and Druidhome.

Haven't read those in probably 20 years, but I remember liking the Avatar series and the Moonshae, but not much else. RA Salvatore's stuff was hit or miss, but he did a pretty good job with this latest series.

you can also earn Zen by doing surveys found here.  the length and amount given varies, but if you're bored at work you might be able to score some free Zen.  I've found hitting refresh sometimes gives you new free survey options.

about the only drawback is you may not be eligible for one. or you might get a bit into another and find it saying 'sorry, you're not qualified' due to the last answer, which can make them seem like a puzzle as you try and figure out what they want to hear.  All the ones I have done haven't asked for personal info; if they do I just skip them.

I've gotten about 200 zen from it by doing a couple of them and wasting maybe 10 minutes, enough for a lockbox key.

Wow.  I went through all of the top ones and was DQ'd from all of em.  heheheh

I can usually spot a heavy Brooklyn, Queens, Lon-Gisland or upstate NY accent pretty well. New England has its share of unique accents too.

My kids are growing up in Florida and I'm starting to hear some local accents in their speech like yesterday when my 9 year old said "room" it sounded like "rum" (no he wasn't talking about rum).

By the way, I haven't done the math on this in a long time, but on a 30 year mortgage, a single extra payment can shave about 7 years off your mortgage, so it is definitely something to look into if you can.

That sounds a bit off.

It's black magic as far as I'm concerned. We were deathly afraid the appraisal on our house was going to be too low when we bought, but it came in (surprise) exactly at the purchase price. I mean, really? Exactly the purchase price and not a penny more? The comps were all over the place and from several years ago, so it looked pretty silly. But we got our house, so were happy.

Got the appraisal back today on the house we're buying and it came back....exactly at the purchase price. I don't understand why the Appraiser knows the price. It's obviously a target to hit rather than an objective number. He also stretched the comps to make sure they met the number so we make the deal. I have no faith if the house is actually worth the price now. Of course on the house we're selling it didn't appraise and they did not take any of the numerous upgrades and addition into account at all.

The entire appraisal process stinks IMO.

Btw, I agree that the personal stories quest need to adjusted.  I'm thinking that Anet assumed most people would be grouping or playing a tank class, some of those mobs hit entirely too hard
It's odd how difficult the story missions can be.  I've died more in those missions than anywhere else.  Some of them are just wonky hard, with what seems like a buggy amount of spawned enemies.

I had some issues with the story missions until I figured that I can't go toe to toe with multiple tough mobs. I was able to kite them from ranged and abuse terrain to get through it (guess my old Hunter skills came in useful). Felt like I was cheesing the fight, but I didn't care too much. This is at 30-40. Not sure how it is at higher levels.

Being responsible for a guild/people in an MMO can be extremely time consuming and somewhat rewarding. At some point in my WoW career I ran our raiding guild for awhile, but passed the torch when I realized I just wasn't going to commit the time needed.

I'll never play MMOs the way I used to, which is why I think GW2 is the perfect answer with 'casual' gameplay that still has social interaction.
