    The trash before the first boss was mental and everyone kept getting petrified causing it to reset.

    If you've watched any guides from the PTR you might as well have been watching the Simpsons as half of the abilities hadn't been implemented so we had derpy bastards stood in all sorts of purple kill you in seconds muck or running into exploding ice things on the first boss.

    Second boss we had the same with people running into some lightning thing meaning extra heals/dispels causing the healers to be oom by the time the 3rd phase started.

    That's as far as we got last night but the other team in the guild killed the first 3 in about half an hour then wiped all night on #4 so that's something to look forward to.

    Also the price of gems/enchants/food mean unless you're either mad or have loads of spare gold lying about you're going in a bit half arsed unless guildies come up with the goods or you can craft them yourself.

    Halfway from 89 to 90 now, and all I can say is... wow.

    The art is amazing.

    And I really don't know what the review was talking about when it said you are railroaded through linear quests. Get past the first zone, and you are spoilt for choice as to which direction you go off to explore.

    It's cliche but you really can't apply the same review structure to a game like WoW as you put to your standard 8 hour weekend games.

    Simply looking down the press release patch notes and ticking off each big point with a "hmm, do I like this one. dunno" then slapping a score at the end once you finally hit level 90 is a waste of everyones time.

    Now that half the game is actually unlocked (after the review was posted of course) we can get a really good feel for the expansion.

    Anybody had problems launching WOW recently?

    Blizzard appearing on my credit card statement last week reminded me that I haven't played for 4 or 5 months, so thinking that there would be a load of patches and updates to apply, I figured I'd fire it up this morning, and leave it updating while I went food shopping.

    Trouble is, it won't launch. Icon bounces on the dock a few times and that's it.

    Checked Apple Software update and there was an OSX patch for 'Some applications that won't launch'. Figured that must be it, applied the update and tried again.

    Still no joy.

    Running on Mac OSX 10.7.5 (Lion). Never had any problems with it before.

    Anyone come across anything similar?

    Cheers.

    (Obviously, given the length of time since I started it up, I don't have the new expansion installed.)

    Not sure on the mac side of things but the technical support forum (offical one) is actually pretty good. Usually just because enough players have experienced similar problems and posted their solutions. Trawling through the forum should provide some answers, or at least dcent suggestions.

    The sheer number of dailies and factioons this time round is a bit much.

    And not all of the factions are listed under reputation, so you can't track them.

    And whoever designed Shrine of Seven Stars needs to go back to design school. What a nightmare.

    They are all listed. If they are not then you haven't spoken to any of the NPCs for that faction.

    The dailies aren't really explained very well. Basically with the weekly Valor cap you only need to do the dailies for *one faction* every 5 weeks.

    If you do more than one, then great. But you're not getting gear any slower if you only focus on, say, Klaxxi for 5 weeks, buy the Valor gear, then more to someone else.

    TLDR = You are in no worse off position if you spend 15-20 minutes a day doing one faction.

    I'm earning Rep for a faction called Tushui Pandaren (even wearing their tabbard), but they're not on the rep tab and haven't been given any indication who they are or anything like that.

    That's the main Panda race - it's under the "Classic" tab near the bottom

    How on earth people say the game looks like shit but praise the graphics of Skyrim is really beyond me (considering the gamebryo engine is about the same age). Some of the vistas in wow are absolutely gobsmackingly write-a-postcard gorgeous.

    @Goodfella

    Jade Forest is probably my favourite in terms of art. Not too keen on Karasang. How many swampy/forest zones have we had now?

    Anyway, this has to be the first expansion where I'm actually not sure where to start when it comes to endgame content, as there's so much to do.

    Well, not sure what that was all about.
    Repaired permissions, and after trawling through the Blizzard faq, deleted the battle.net folder in users, but no joy.

    In the end, kicked off the client download and went to bed.
    And this morning, all is good again.

    First thing it fires up with is the trailer for Pandaria.

    I'm not the only one who looked at it and just thought 'Kung Fu Panda', right?

    I am tempted to resub after a massive long gap when I build my PC, but I just know I won't have the same time/energy/impetus with it, and go back to weeping over ancient memories of Westfall, Dire Maul and BWL and pissing everyone off again.

    Stupid question (maybe), but where can I get the reputation tabbards for the various factions, assuming they have them?

    It would be nice to have all the different quartermasters in one place.

    It's not as simple as just sticking on a tabard anymore.

    Yeah I know, but it's a start, especially as I spend a lot of time in dungeons.

    Assuming you mean for factions like golden lotus, klaxxi etc, they don't exist anymore.

    DM, you have to grind daily quests to get faction reputation now. There are no dungeon tabards for the new factions.
    Oh great. Because you didn't need to grind dailies enough already...
