@  Benbot : (15 October 2019 - 08:02 AM)

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

They seem to be treating all the games with the same reverence.Even ReCoded, which was just an excuse to redo the first game again.

There was that short story where she jumped off Icecrown and saw what was waiting for her on the other side.

 

Oh right. Arthas was there too, wasn't he? I'm not sure why she's really surprised at that, given the dark magic used to taint her soul upon resurrection.

 

It just hit me. They actually managed to cheapen Sylvanas' character moreso there. She gets a "Get out of limbo" card twice over thanks to the Valkyr and becomes absolutely terrifying of dying again, which leads her to make a deal with Helya to capture and corrupt Odyn's Valkyr. Meanwhile, Illidan willingly becomes Sargeras' jailer.

 

Good job Blizzard, you made Sylvanas a spineless coward and turned Illidan into a tragic hero. YOU GOT THE STORIES MIXED UP BLIZZARD! Also talk about a hint of misogyny there. Illidan gets his entire narrative retconned to be the Big Damn Hero, while Sylvanas gets the Garrosh treatment.

 

 

Also there was the story where she tried to convince Varessa to abandon her kids and live with Sylvanas in Undercity  This would also have involved Varessa being killed and raised by Sylvanas, something Varessa did not know about.  Varessa turning Sylvanas down made Sylvanas even more psychotic, and pretty much fully set her on her nihilistic path she is on now.

 

...I'd managed to forget about that aspect of the Trial of Garrosh. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to start drinking alcohol until I forget it again.

Is it any surprise? Any Horde leader that isn't Thrall is either a villain (Garrosh, Sylvanas, Gallywix), a sacrifice (Cairne, Vol'jin, Saurfang), or just kinda forgotten about (Lor'themar, Baine, Ji Firepaw). Meanwhile the Alliance runs in circles to stay pretty much where they started.

In all seriousness, Ji Firepaw is probably the character Blizzard has made criminal use of. Dude gets beaten nearly to death by Garrosh, and then he and the rest of the Pandaren Hordeside are okay with continuing on as nothing happened. Right through the Sylvanas re-run. You'd have thought throughout Battle for Azeroth, Ji would be one of the more vocal of Sylvanas' critics.

 

Of course, Baine made a promise to Vol'jin that they'd never let this happen to the Horde again and then Baine just kind of stood there...

Ji Firepaw, the character so underused for the faction so under-represented that my friend was convinced that canonically all Pandarean left the Horde after MoP.

Remember when the Alliance had a meeting of their faction leaders and didn't invite the Draenei because they thought they'd all gone back to Outland?

I don't remember that, but I do remember how at the start of Wrath of the Lich King, the Alliance's new allies the Draenei were relegated to a single unit.

The problem is, I have no Horde anywhere near max level. I've got a couple Level 100s without any gear in the Character restorer and a Level 56. Half tempted to roll a Demon Hunter just to hit the ground running, even if Legion was a slog to get through.

You get a 110 boost when you buy BfA, so if you haven't used that yet, you could skip Legion. Not on a DH, though, you're not allowed to boost them.

Yeah you can use the boost, and skip Legion, however that would also mean skipping Legion which was a very good expansion, even with the Artifacts now only stat sticks, you still have the good questing, which does have a lot of story effects on BfA.

 

As for getting a Vulpera, you are going to want to work on the Volduni rep, make sure to get a contract from a scribe.  In fact since this will be your first Horde character, maybe make them a Scribe/Herbalist so you can get those contracts more easily to help you get the rep.

 

Also the Dakrmoon Fair is up this week, so that is another way to help you get rep.  If you did just reactivate and did the boost, make sure to do Voldun this week so you can get the fair bonuses to help with the rep you are getting from questing there.  This would be a very good reason to use that boost, you can always go back and do the Legion quests later if need be.

Most of Legion was good, although I wish they'd stop designing questing zones that basically need flying that you have to do to get flying. Remember when you could get a free flying mount to use in certain areas in Northrend? I hated everything to do with Argus, though.

The boost is used up and long forgotten now. I'm not sure what spare character I actually used the BfA boost on, now that I think about it. *Goes to look* Ah yes, a Fury Warrior. Reminding myself I dislike melee.

Warrior probably is the worst of both worlds in the axis of 'survivability' and 'ease of play'. Melee gameplay is harder than ranged for various reasons, and warrior survivability is distressingly poor. Hasn't stopped me from playing Fury since Vanilla. There's probably something wrong with me...
