In a small section of the garden a tiny weed spoke to the blooms that grew there. 'Why,' he asked, 'does the gardener seek to kill me? Do I not have a right to life? Are my leaves not green, as yours are? Is it too much to ask that I be allowed to grow and see the sun?' The blooms pondered on this, and decided to ask the gardener to spare the weed. He did so.
Day by day the weed grew, stronger and stronger, taller and taller, its leaves covering the other plants, its roots spreading. One by one the flowers died, until only a rose was left. It gazed up at the enormous weed and asked: 'Why do you seek to kill me? Do I not have a right to life? Are my leaves not green, as yours? Is it too much to ask that I be allowed to grow and see the sun?'
'Yes, it is too much to ask,' said the weed.

just hit 60 on my lock.
now that I can actually start playing the game, where do I even begin
this guy has been here for over an hr
whats the point?
because they got ganked when they were low level so they're continuing the cycle. if you think an hour is bad, there's people that gank there for months at a time. it's kind of impressive.
just another day on nostalrius
>tfw FFXIV servers are down
So, how's Nostalrius doing? Last few times I've tried to do anything on the pvpv server it's been unplayable, so I kinda want to roll on the pve server but I'm worried there'll be no one to play with.
Anyone want a heal pet?

Dopefish was so legit. He actually streams and youtubes random games now.
I liked how grand Old Ironforge was, but they didn't have enough time to work on it, so much of it was just copypasted, and lacked a lot of detail. Current IF is considerably more practical.
Good. Anyone who values their account will surely make an honest attempt to get their account back, and the gm's will acknowledge that. Can't re make an omelet without breaking a few eggs
I'm stuck on retrieving character info. Whata fuck dude.
>>Good. Anyone who values their account will surely make an honest attempt to get their account back
And get an "you participated in a transaction with stolen gold blah blah feel free to make a new account" response.
This is pretty comfy, gathering players for dungeons etc. It's nice to play WoW as a multiplayer game rather than a singleplayer.
I really like dungeons, there was a lot of 5 man dungeons in Rift, loved doing those with random people through the LFG system. It's the only thing in the game that's even worth it.
I've been playing FF14, it's super good and nostalgic!
Didn't realize I had such an effect, if you needed assistance you should just tell me what server/faction you're on and I'd be happy to offer my best as a healer.

How is it? Is the PvP any good? How about PvE? Is there a lot of content to clear?
I'm getting increasingly tempted to contact you at some point so I might, once I overcome my shyness
Who wants to come help this little troll level!
i can tag and you can kill :^)
I don't think it's a game to play for PvP, and I'm still fresh so I couldn't tell you how much content there really is. In most ways, it's very standard affair for an MMO but it's very solidly put together and visually fantastic that it doesn't feel boring. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, so I feel like instead of trying to 'dethrone' WoW like most MMO's they just made a legitimately solid, modern-feeling entry for an MMO.
Plus I have a total weakness for the classic Final Fantasy aesthetic that the game has tons of allusions to, not to mention the rather outlandish monster designs and absolutely adorable character models and animations.
I wish I had a good pc and a monitor that isn't 4:3 so I could experience modern games like that pleasantly. I sometimes have FPS problems even here in nost, quite ridicilous. Even playing an old game like this isn't as fun with a small monitor since my ui will be cluttered.
Would you recommend playing some of the Final Fantasy games first before playing that so I understand what's going on and stuff?
Heard you were leveling ele, how long does it take you to kill shit and do you have to drink often? Leveling a shaman and dont want to mindlessly melee shit forever. thanks for any info.
The plot of Final Fantasy games aren't typically connected so you're not missing out plot-wise, but honestly you won't get the same feeling of nostalgia just from getting to wear white mage gear or fighting the Knights of the Round unless you've been playing FF games since you were a kid.
Yeah I see. Might as well give the games still a try though since I always hear that they're really good, I've only tried one game years ago and I didn't stay interested enough so this time it could be different.

Took a nice scenic ride around Hillsbrad. You know how many people weren't Chinese out of about 100 that I've seen on the way?
Less than five.
Not sure how that stuff works but I guess you should be careful with that stuff since nost has a tendency to not be too accepting of any sort of automation. There was people being banned for using an addon that automatically conjured water and put it in the trade window and accepted and some people got banned for it
>being racist towards orcs (clearly picked cow to be special snowflake)
>being racist toward chinese people (chinese probably said 'oh hi, i just tamed it, you should come in 30min for respawn, gl' but didnt understand)
>that one awkward guy, and possibly a few others who cling to the 'lewd' writings of a 20/30/40 year old neckbeard pretending to be a trap/girl
really think about it lad, it isn't hot, or cute, it's fucking cringey
Lvl 18: Get Smite's hammer from DM (taskmaster axe is worse, but ok too if you can't get the hammer). Around lvl 25 you can complete the elite ogre quest in Lakeshire, which will give you a nice green mace (better than taskmaster axe, worse than smite's hammer though). At lvl 30 get your whirlwind weapon ASAP. Ask a guildie to help, or suck some cocks, I dunno, but get it at lvl 30. Don't fall for the axe meme, the sword is a better weapon pre-40, especially if you're leveling fury. But than again, the axe scores style points. If you're ally, you can get a replacement for you WW weapon around lvl 40 by completing the main SM quest. Dunno about horde. At lvl 51 you should get you Ice Barbed Spear from AV, this thing will last you well into the endgame.
As for armor, it's not that consequential. Just run the level appropriate dungeons once or twice and you should be ok. Obviously, check AH now and then for cheap upgrades.
sorry you can't get it up to nothing but neckbeards, don't know what you want me to tell you bud

truly, priest was the correct class
that fucking horrible moment when you go to speak to somebody in a AB game in /s and always see there in one of the chinese games and won't be able to communicate or understand, for fuck sake
truly, nost has gone to the chinese
When nostalrius was conceived didn't the frogs make it very clear that this is an english only server and players were required to speak english? Why have they abandoned this now that the chink worker ant colony have arrived?
The chinks make up for like half their playerbase, of course they won't shun them away. One of the things nost has going for it is that it's hugely populated, it attracts people
Plus the chinks use their own chat channels and shit
The Border Patrol is here to help with the chink infestation, Now Recruiting!

Great, but you should realize that you don't need your bags shown anymore, and all of the menu buttons have bindings that you're probably used to by now. So you can just just hide those.
Havent played since August
Is questie still the go-to quest helper addon?
Also, how is the server population doing? Im going to level a healer
Its called gold selling. Someone buys gold online and the sellers tell them to put up some items for ridiculous prices, the gold sellers buy the items and the gold purchaser recieves the gold without arousing suspicion.
Strange question but is there a way to get a 1.12 client with Russian localization without going onto shady Russian sites? Or was it not localized at that time?
I am the Lizard Wizard stuck in a swamp
I meant more a total translation. I'm studying the language and since I pretty much know all of the items, quests etc. in the English version I figured I might as well try the Russian one. Not sure if that makes sense.
Ah, I see. Not sure if there's anything like that. If you find something like it then post in the thread about it, I recently learned most of the cyrillic alphabet so I thought might as well start utilizing that and learn to read and speak russian.
I've done some further research and it does appear that the game was not localized to that language at the time. I found a thread on Nostalrius forum where several Russians have come together to begin translating the game. It's incomplete from what I understand.
It's quite fun, very difficult though.
Why are they better? I assume the instant attacks hitting harder is the big thing, right?
I am leveling my first war ever. I followed the guide in the OP and filled in the fury tree. Pre-40, overpower was the only instant attack I had, and it didn't proc very often nor did it hit hard without the talent. I didn't use slam, because in order to do so I would have to switch to berserker stance and lose all my rage. Considering the above, wouldn't a higher speed weapon be better for smoother rage generation and more consistent damage output? If the WW axe misses 3 times in a row, you will find that you haven't dealt any damage in ages and are pretty much fucked. The situation is slightly better with the sword, esp. if human.
After speccing into MS, I can see how slow speed = better. After getting the arms talents to keep rage after stance switching, I can justify using slam. But I don't understand why slow speed is better for a lvl 30-39 fury war. Am I missing something here?
this is actually a pretty fucking cool trinket for a healer. I've never considered it until I got it. it can potentially give you 700 mana which would definitely make it better than briarwood reed for a few bosses.
I use to play a game called Infestation: survivor stories and played on the Thailand hub for it because it had to hackers and was a better place to play. eventually too many Americans were joining and they were a source of hacking and they ip banned all US and EU connections. i wish nost would do something like this
PvP noob here, can someone tell me what the fuck did a rogue cast on me that gave me constant "that spell is not ready" messages even when under the voidwalker bubble? I'm not seeing anything recognizable in the combat log.
Yes, that doesn't work. Pic related.
Whisper rogues in guilds that are 8/8 BWL. Nobody would be dumb enough to scam you when they risk getting gkicked.
I've opened 1823 lockboxes since April last year, and it's about 0.4-0.8% chance to drop a blue (depending on what box you have). I have gotten one epic (Gut Ripper) from a pickpocket box (different from the ones that drop from mobs).
I did unbox a +healing wand once, some mage probably got a few hundred gold for it.
What the fuck are you trying to say? If a rogue opens a box then the box is unlocked, still holding all the loot. If he takes anything out of the box, it will say in chat what he took out of the box. If he takes anything out of the box you will have proof since it says in chat what he took and you report his thieving ninja ass.
What do you mean by "But they can just leave the good loot in the box."?
>just got 60 yesterday
>stoked to start gearing on nostalrius
>instead I have to visit with my sister who's in town from Oklahoma and pretend to give a fuck about my nephew that I see maybe once a year
Wow you are dense or can't read between the lines very well. The original poster asking the question may have been under the assumption that A) lockboxes have more than 1 piece of green or better loot and B) you may take 1 out of 2 items from the lockbox, and KEEP THE LOCKBOX WITH AN ITEM IN IT. Therefore, if that were the case, you could get scammed very easily. Take one item out of box, keep lockbox with 1 item in it, trade the person 1 item, leave group, keep the second item. This is what the poster was trying to ascertain.
You can use Slam in any stance. I don't know why you thought otherwise.
Honestly 1-29 you're just trying to pick up whatever big stick has the highest DPS output, regardless of speed. You're trying to get your first blue wep probably in your 20's.
However, Once you're 30, you've got slam. Slam is the best damage output at this time. Getting a swingtimer addon so you can drop the bass as soon you swing your weapon makes your 30's so much easier. You can stick with heroic strike, but that's barely better than auto-attacking when you consider the how much you can output with slam. Granted, the majority of our DPS is actually just auto-attack.
As the memes suggest, you can stick with fury all the way up to 60. In a certain aspect, it's slightly quicker leveling. However, your biggest drawback is that we're on a crowded PvP server, and you're most likely going to get rekt by everyone that passes you by, and warrior is bad enough while leveling as it is. The flexibility Arms gives you, especially later on is incredibly valuable in a majority of situations.
This doesn't work.
You cannot trade an opened lockbox, I can't remember whether it displays the soulbound writing but it crashes the trade window when you put it in to trade.
A giant of the community has fallen.
We'll always miss you FF x
Is there a decent /vg/ guild list? I have a couple characters on alliance but I'd be more than willing to roll horde if there was a good guild for it established.
Played on the Vidya in emerald dream and the guild was bro as fuck. anything like that?
I have a 60 rogue of my own that I use to open my own lockboxes from DM farming and whatnot. This is false, sometimes mithril lockboxes have no loot at all inside them, its rare though.
I miss Entitled. RIP meme guild.
gib hordie /vg/ guilds?
I'm sitting with 3 lvl 20 toons on ally. I'm too indecisive and ADD when picking a class. Stuck between keeping my mage on ally or re-rolling a lock on horde
Does anyone know why sometimes potions will be on CD as a priest even if you haven't used one? Its pretty lame when I'm leveling with a bag full of pots I find, only to not be able to use them when I need to.
hmm, he offered to look at my account that randomly got banned after i transferred gold between it. i wonder if he will get it unbanned
>Why would the GM message you immediately after the fact? That's bad management and most certainly contributes towards chat fighting.
Because that GM is literally a twelve year old tranny SJW. Xe is the one who gloats and lords the fact that he's a GM over you whenever he contacts you for anything, and handles pretty much all "U RACES BRO" reports.
Vg on horde is <bearforceone> which isn't that active, alliance is <damage control> where you will be used to farm reserved items for the raid leader.
Vg guilds never work out that well so you'd probably be better off finding one ingame. Stick around nosg for a while and you'll see all the retarded guild drama.
You can look for a group for it, but if you can't find one literally just wait by the entrance and follow one in. Because its not instanced you can follow a group that's clearing through all the way to the alter.
Just installed Fishing Buddy, and it has the right click function which is great. I sort of remember something having the equipping/unequipping fishing pole and other fishing items/equipment though. Maybe that was in TBC.
Lol no. You should never do that. I've made that mistake and now I know how horrible it is.
>leveld a rogue
>did plenty of WPvP
>got good at making sudden strikes, killing off people in the middle of their raid groups, quietly ambushing and fucking up everyone and anyone
>no stealth anymore
>now I know to well how deadly rogue is, and how he can be anywhere, where when you least expect him
>have to check if i have enough distance ahead of me to blink every time i sit down to drink
>always playing with no music to hear even the faintest sounds, as it could be a rogue stealthing around me, preparing to strike
>never feel safe anymore, never secure
Ignorance is bliss. I mean sure, it's piss easy to fuck up a rogue as a mage, even 2 rogues if they're not very good, but still, the realization of how vulnerable you are to a surprise attack is really cirppling after you spend a lot of time being a rogue.
Also, if you're concerned about your lockboxes, I never bought a single bag on my rogue and outfitted myself and my bank entirely with Traveler's Backpacks I found in lockboxes people gave to me.
But hey, I didn't even ask for tip if their lockbox was empty or """"empty"""", it pays off to be nice.
>have a few lockboxes with a shit greens inside
>open every person's lockboxes you come across
>if you ever come across a blue or an item you can sell, loot one of the decoy lockboxes so that's what they see in chat while keeping the blue in their lockbox

No, just no.
>guy asks me to open his lockboxes

>if there's a shitty green inside, loot it so he could see
>if there is something expensive, leave it in
>open all boxes, then check the overall picture
>if besides those boxes you jewed to yourself there were many actually empty ones, then loot the least valuable box(es) you saved
>just make it look non-suspicious
>trade stuff to the guy, accept fat tip
>if he actually complains that there are less items than lockboxes, explain him that lockboxes can in fact be empty
When I ask rogues to open lockboxes for me I just tell them I only want cloth, any caster cloth gear, and greens he doesn't need. Anything else they can keep. The way I see it, I'm not paying him for it with my cash, and I can't open the boxes without leveling up my own rogue or them helping me.
it was fun while it lasted.
i just cannot enjoy playing on it anymore, knowing that 75% of players are basement chinks that literally NO ONE likes. and we all know that the staff team wont do anything about it.
we're doomed. life sucks and nothing ever good happens. and when it does, it HAS to be ruined. its a rule of nature.
just end my life already god.
What skill do I have to have for that, and where's the recipe, and where are the spawns? http://vanilla-wow.wikia.com/wiki/Fishing says that it's only in oases/WC in Barrens and nowhere else?
I'm almost right there with you. I've only been on the server 1 week but how in the fuck do you level 60s deal with it?
>spend 40 minutes getting group and getting to dungeon
>get halfway through dungeon
>DISCONNECT ERROR CHINA 404 EDITION
>group was auto disbanded and all of us were kicked outside
>invites no longer work so group is dead
Well that was fun. How the fuck can you even think about doing a 40 man raid when any number of raid members can disconnect at any given moment with no chance of recovery? I am struggling to see the point of continuing to 60. Are the servers really this shit all the time? In the past 2 months has it always been this shit?

I know that pets are normalized on the PvP server, seeing as we've been using the patch material from 1.12 the entire time. I think the PvE server is the same way, but I'm not certain.

It's just smoke and mirrors, too bad people have been trained to kneejerk like Pavlov's dogs. It's really disturbing to watch it happen in a virtual space, where it doesn't have real consequences, because you know that it happens in actual real life too, and that's a fucking tragedy.
This is real
Embrace your LingPingWungMung overlords, /nosg/
You people are retarded if you don't mass report Chinks too, for talking in , it needs to be done on a grand scale until they cave in and remove the "English only" and then the server will be officially killed.
