Welcome to the 5.10 patch notes - the one where supports get some lovin'. As we traverse the land in our diversity dirigible, we're still sussing out what impact the Cinderhulk changes had on the feasibility forest, so we've now turned our sights to sustain / utility-focused supports who have languished a bit in the diversity metrics. That said, rather than kicking all of the aggressive supports in the shins (except a small adjustment for Leona's E width to match the visuals), we realized we could probably introduce some new possibilities with utility mastery changes, sustain support item improvements, and some utility-focused buffs for champions more inclined to those ways.

I love the fact that this lovely nature animated gif makes it look like the tree is getting down on the dancefloor.

Might be hard to see unless you zoom in, but that squirrel across the street is giving my dog the finger.

Everquest Ragefire: Orc Camp Level 10-12
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 May 2015, 1:34 pm

So as much as i enjoy Faydwer there seem to be better opportunities for grouping inside Antonica. I Found a pretty good solo spot in Commonlands between Orc camp 2 and the undead Tower. There are lots of blue/white and some yellow bears, cats, zombies. As long as your near the mountain none of the [...]

To discourage their purchase
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 May 2015, 11:13 am
This post deliberately has the same title as Azuriel's post on the subject. That is because it basically is just a small addition to the discussion of Azuriel. The issue at hand is Apexis crystal items in patch 6.2 costing gold instead of Apexis crystals. Which makes the crystals pretty useless, and opens up Blizzard to conspiracy theories linking the move to the new WoW tokens.

Azuriel quotes a dev saying: "The high pricing is deliberate to discourage their purchase in favor of crafted items or raid BoEs.". Now I make a lot of money with little work by producing armor upgrades, e.g. Hexweave Essence, from the resources that my garrisons produce. And when I see the price list of the "Apexis" gear in gold, I must say that they are not highly priced at all. If you bought a crafted epic, then applied first an Essence, then a Greater Essence, and then a Powerful Essence to it, you'd probably end up paying more for about the same iLevel. I don't think the prices "discourage their purchase in favor of crafted items" at all, and in many cases the Apexis items are also cheaper than popular raid BoEs. The move is more likely to destroy my crafting profits than to discourage buyers.

Games for Traveling
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 May 2015, 10:00 am
I'm traveling a bunch this week.  I'm probably in the process of getting ready to leave right as this post goes up.  There's going to be lots of time in airports and on planes for the next few days.

I'm trying to figure out what games to play.  I always go loaded for bear when it comes to electronics and traveling.  I'll have my 3DS, Vita, iPhone, Nexus Tablet, and Kindle.

Should I revisit old favorites or dive into the games that remain untouched on my 3DS and Vita?  Should I download a bunch of iOS games to play try out?  Look through my forgotten folders of iOS that I like but never play?  Should I just give up and read a book on my Kindle?  Should I read comics on my Nexus?

As of writing this post I'm really not sure what I'm going to end up doing.

I ended up grabbing the Mario Edition of Puzzle and Dragons.  I also have Persona 4 Golden sitting untouched on my Vita.  Those two games are top of mind for me, but I know I have some other untouched games on both systems too.

Ugh.  I have no conclusions here.  I'll definitely let you know what happens after this travel wraps up.

Everything old is new
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 May 2015, 10:50 am
The latest MMORPG from this month is the original Everquest, a new "progression" server called Ragefire with the advertising slogan "play it like it's 1999". There is obviously a huge demand for such back in time servers that promise to bring back our MMORPG past. I just don't think that is actually possible.

I have fond memories of the original Everquest. It is second only to World of Warcraft in the length of my subscription. And its basic philosophy of "you have to play together with other or perish alone" is fundamentally different from World of Warcraft and most other modern games. But a large part of the attraction of EQ at the time was that it was one of the first mass-market MMORPGs and the most graphically advanced in 1999. Sixteen years later we aren't the same people any more that we were in 1999, our tastes and expectations have evolved with all the games we played since then. And the graphics standards have evolved too, so today EQ is just downright ugly.

So for me the most likely scenario is that people will start playing on this Ragefire server out of nostalgia, and then relatively quickly discover that their selective memory made them remember all the good things and forget about all the bad stuff. It simply isn't 1999 any more, and we can't bring 1999 back. Most players will give up after only a few levels, because today the original EQ leveling speed will appear extremely slow.

Having said that, I do believe that Blizzard could get a million or more subscribers for a month or three by offering a "vanilla WoW" server with 40-man raids to Molten Core.

Everquest 2: 2015 Butcher Block to 30, what to the cities of Faydwer
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2015, 8:58 pm

The view when your climbing up to Butcher block is pretty amazing, it still feels weird switching between everquest and everquest 2. The game feel so so so different for being made by the same people and about the same thing. I feel like a god in Everquest 2 going around slaughtering anything that comes [...]

I always hear this song in my head when I read the Lily/Zora heart-suit scene in Anna: CHVRCHES – Lies

Here’s part of that scene. They’re wearing suits that manipulate the body to the music. Creepy. A bit dangerous.

Playing Don’t Starve Together, The Sims 4, World of Warcraft and Darkest Dungeon have all slowed down. I’m going to be having what should be minor surgery in a couple of weeks. This has turned my focus to spring cleaning, getting things ready for hand-off at work and organizing my house and bedroom beforehand. Minimally, I’ll be laid up for 4 weeks. 4 weeks convalescing takes planning!
