    I am often confused by the numbers six and nine when immaturely discussing mature content.

    I think it has something to do with the soup nipples Jim.

    Damn, Brackish, I guess you’ve discovered my perversions — like it was a big secret. ;)

    In your discussion of raids/task forces, it is obvious you guys are not hard core. Never heard of Raid locks|? noobs

    For a guy named “lotronut” I find your judgement to be…ironic.

    Quite a few MMO’s out there don’t even offer the option of raid locks and even if they do everyone can’t always be on the same schedule to pick up where you left off.

    The bigger issue is the lack of decent rewards (or guarantee of one) after spending an exorberant amount of time on a so-called “epic” quest.

    lmao.. love that.. But anyway.. Raiding Sucks… I did it.. at least in WoW.. both pre and post BC.. but it was to see content.. and after the content was seen, you had to spend multiple weeks doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over… to get the gear required for you to have a chance to kill something new.. if you get ‘lucky’ and the gear you need drops.. the amount of healing plate that drops is sick.. at least when you don’t have a pally healer in the raid.. I could go on.. but I’ll stop.. it’s a shame blizz see’s fit to force people to farm instances, but limits them to slow progression.. I think they stummbled on the correct idea with heroic dungeons.. but they left that out on the raid dungeons..
