    I remember back in the days of Diablo II, I had a Sorceress that was immune to fire, and another to lightning. I had some other characters with immunities. In some instances the Assassin that was trying to kill me, was actually healing me with her lightning, saving me from the axe of the Barbarian. It made for interesting battles and added more depth to the character.

    In a game that is far more customizable, I think it would be interesting to have your own personalized character that could oh say, be healed by lightning, or a warrior that is immune to all physical damage/healed by it.

    It would make PVP situations interesting since you would have to be more a strategist to defeat certain players whom chose defense over high damage. Player A could build a fire mage that is pure damage. Player B one that does half the damage, but is immune/healed by all fire. I thought this could be interesting for future MMOs.

    Thoughts?
    I'm all about over powering, but I think that would take it a bit too far. Blizz, overall, does a really good job of keeping balance in the game. They put a lot of time into boss fights, and it would really complicate their planning if you were able to customize like that.


    *edit. I found the following on craigslist.

    "Level 58 Death Knight
    Level 55 Warlock
    Level 26 Mage

    make me an offer.

    Im very eager to sell this ASAP
    Contact me through email or AIM (name removed)
    its a good account and the death knight is the leader of the number 5 guild on the server
    please email me back or im me very soon! "



    No toons over lvl 60, and the DK is the leader of the number 5 guild on the server???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    My reply:
    Please not, I'm not trying to bash on our favorite fuzz-boots wearer. I was just trying to make a point.
    Marselei,
    I feel that my name has been wrongfully flagged.

    First of all, the terms of Service refer to "very
    well known people, characters, places, or icons (i.e.
    Britneyspears, Austinpowers, Mcdonalds,
    Georgewashington, Newyork)". To call Masters of the
    Universe "very well known" in 2009 is a stretch to say
    the least. The show ran for only two years, and has
    been off the air for over 24 years. I would argue that
    the overall number of people who would even make the
    connection between my character's name and the
    property is very small. In the time that I have been
    levelling my character to 80, I can count on one hand
    the number of times that people have approached me
    having made the connection. And every single one of
    those times, I was greeted in a friendly manner by the
    person.
    That fact aside, there are 92 "Greyskulls", 106
    "Grayskulls", 30 "Greyskuls", and 30 "Grayskuls" on
    the various realms. Many of those are high-level
    characters. If the name truly warranted action, I
    cannot believe that so many violators would have been
    allowed to remain in-game for so long.
    In addition, Blizzard itself has violated this
    policy with the NPCs "Adam Eternos", "Oric Coe", and
    "Keldor the Lost" in Shattrath City. These names are
    far more egregious in their references to this
    so-called "VERY well-known character".
    Thank you for your time. I hope that you will agree
    that my name is not a direct violation of Blizzard
    Policy, and should be allowed to remain.

    Best Regards,
    I love He-Man as much as the next guy, but he's not even in the same ballpark with the examples given in terms of name recognition (Grayskul even less so). This is just another example of Blizzard being Blizzard. Their new PVP epicenter is causing lag issues all over Northrend, their 25-man raids are broken, Arenas had to be turned off because of technical issues, and Instance Summonong Stones aren't working-but they have time to nitpick over a name. Excellent.

    They are trying to say it's because it's an RP server. I'm fighting it. I'm going to escalate my complaint, noting the fact that the sheer number of NPC's and 'easter eggs' that make reference to real-world people, places, and characters from other fiction makes this rule incredibly hypocritical.

    The fact that it's an RP server explains it. Someone probably reported you. No one cares on the other servers. Bliz specifically alters characters' names and appearances for their easter eggs - everything in WoW is still just from the WoW universe. I know, it may not seem like a difference, but it is.

    Sorry, did someone already post this? I saw it on digg titled as "How WOW Changed My Life".

    If Jack Bauer was on Lost, everything would have been solved in 24 hours!

    If Jack Bauer was on Heroes, he wouldn't need to save the cheerleader to save the world.

    Blizzard Support Page:
    This category includes both clear and masked names which:

    * Are references to very well known people, characters, places, or icons (i.e. Britneyspears, Austinpowers, Mcdonalds, Georgewashington, Newyork)
    Adam Eternos isn't a masked name? Oric Coe isn't a masked name? Linken? Hemet Nesingwary? Chief Engineer Scooty? How many other "Keldors" have you ever heard of?

    It's hypocritical. Plain and simple. Not only that, but the enforcement of the RP element of the server is sloppy at best. Gold vendors and spam have a far greater impact on RP than my name ever could. What it comes down to is that people get their jollies for reporting people. Given the ambiguous nature of the the naming rules as they are, it takes very little effort to totally screw someone's day-and these little RP turds know it.

    You may be laughing, but at least this guy gave up WOW before investing ridiculous amounts of hours into it and is now getting rid of it all.

    More likely he transferred a DK with some other characters over to an account and is now selling it off.

    I can't say I understand the crazies. I mean, I'm really liking the game but there are so many other things I enjoy too. The other day a guild was recruiting and saying you had to be available from 6pm-10pm for raids Monday through Friday. Was that for real? I just don't understand that... it's like a second job... for fake money.

    I am, however, thinking about buying the replica Frostmourne. I just think it's amazing. I've never spent so much money in my life on one piece of merch but I think it might just be worth it. I was annoyed they recently raised the price on me just as I got the money together though.

    Oh, by the way the How WOW Change My Life Picture is just a joke. The original photos went the other direction (from overweight to skinny and with a girlfriend and ugly gauges) and had nothing to do with WOW.

    If this really confuses you, look at the guys ears he started gauging his ears and the hole gets bigger the 'healthier' he gets. Basically he starts with no or just a standard earring and he ends up with a hole the size of a nickel or quarter and if you look at his ears you can see it.

    I never said it confuses me. I know exactly what's going on with it.

    The moments I hate English language, the word you being one of them. I didn't mean you, I initially had the image quoted and a few moments later remembered no image quoting policy I should have read what you posted along with it, because I wasn't specifically responding to you.

    I'm thinking about getting it also. If the zombie attack ever happens, I think Frostmourne would be a great advantage. Plus if anyone ever tried to break in and rob you.....
