At least those are (usually) the easy ones to get out. Simple tooth extraction is normally fine. Lowers suck - those usually need a trip to the oral surgeon and knockout gas and surgery.

(If it's still too expensive, you can always take those out like my dad threatened to do to us if we got cavities: Tie one end of a string around the tooth, the other around a doorknob. Slam the door. Yes, we all stayed far, far away from the candy!)

I was always told that my tooth would be tied to a lamp post and my dad would bring a red-hot iron closer and closer to my face until I either got my eyeball burned out or I jerked my head away, thus extricating the tooth.

gotta love that guy.

Oh I'm not bothered about the pain. I used to pull out my own child teeth when I was younger because it was fun. And I had an excellent experience with my bottom wisdom teeth. Was flawless and relatively painless - I wasn't put under either, just normal local anesthetic.

I'm more pissed off about the cost difference.

(I had 8 wisdom teeth taken out when I was younger, so, yeah...

You're the second person now in the past month that I've ever even heard of having more than more. A coworker of mine has already had six out and her dentist surprised her recently saying she'd need to get another two out.

I don't think that adds up.

Isnt there already a precedence of reworking how some abilities work in pve and how they work in pvp?



Topic necro from like 5 pages back.

I wish I had this bullet point from a dev interview at the time:

AJ interview w/ Holinka/GC wrote:Sam: PvE and PvP changes seem to collide very often, do you guys believe that balancing both may require a lot of specific PvP and PvE only changes? An example would be Find Weakness in 5.3.

Brian: Yes, and when we do it. Find weakness is a great example where PvE needed a buff and it would've cost big problems to PvP. We keep it in mind and Frost bomb is another example. We try not to do it too often, it’s a lot of things to keep track of. We’re the designers and people on Arena Junkies are really passionate players that really keep up on all the changes, but a lot of players are not. To ask our general player base that your spell does this and it does half damage or 25% or something like that, it’s really not something we want to do too often. Especially hey we want eviscerate to hit 10% less on players. That’s really inconsistent and a tough thing. We usually do it when it’s really a significant thing such as Find Weakness is 50% less and Frost bomb is 40% less.

Greg: There’s also this persistent, I’ll just call it a myth, that if we just bite the bullet and make 2 versions of every spell suddenly we’ll have class balance nailed and it’ll never be a problem again. I’m pretty confident if we went ahead and split sub rogues into 2 abilities on every ability with different damage numbers you’ll still see players saying why they can’t just tune down this one ability that’s costing pvp burst problem. In other words players will still want us to make changes even if we have the numbers split up, I don’t think it’ll suddenly make players feel their class is viable in every situation

Stop asking me to lower your value on the customs forms, or to mark it as a gift. I can't. As in. I physically, am not capable of changing the price you paid on the customs form. It is entered into the system by either our website where you placed the order, ebay, or the Order form I use when you call. I can't do it.

Also, It's illegal. And, if I were to be found falsifying customs documents for your $50 order, I could forfeit our license with the government to import, and export government surplus.

Do you know how much that is? I do. It's about fifty thousand a year. And If I lose that license, I can't participate in some of the surplus auctions that I currently purchase from. And I'll lose my job.

So. If you want to pay $50K for the license, and talk with my boss about how you didn't mean to fuck up his business, and represent me in court when I have to go to trial, and pay me my yearly income, and deal with my wife who will be..... F.U.R.I.O.U.S., SURE! I'll falsify your stupid customs form, so you can pay a few dollars less for buying it out of the country.

Otherwise? Shut up, and give me your money.


Of course, most of them won't realize it, as unless there are coming from one of the handful that actually enforce rules, they expect that you like everyone else they know will do side deals, skirt the law, or flat out ignore it.


The ultimate hilarity being that the very license they want me to risk for their side deal, is what allows me to purchase what they are buying from me. Military Surplus doesn't just grow on trees in the back here, where I can prune it off, and sell it to them.

You misogynistic bastard you! :roll:

Feminism reminds me of "lawful good, neutral good, chaotic good" alignments.

There's the lawful feminists, who seems to dislike the term feminist and tend more towards equality.
Then there's neutral feminist, who focus on equality through the uplifting of women.
Then there's the chaotic feminist, who will MURDER-STAB-CHAINSAW YOUR MAN-BITS OFF at anything less than complete submission.

:P

I had a couple of teeth extracted yesterday, and was told that once these ones heal, they'll pull out some more on the other half of the mouth. :(

Wondering about this.. i was doing my occasional archeology-in-vain and got a quest item to go fight a lvl 9 boss.. if I beat him, does that mean I get that rank? I've only done the first 2 bosses otherwise I think.

I'm giving up...

After spending another 3 hours of grinding panderia Arch items to buy Tolvir crates to try to get the bug mount, and nothing to show for it again... I'm done. Not going to waste any more time trying to get that damn thing. Been chasing that thing since I could in Cata, and I'm officially done.

Ugh, I hear you on this. I got the Vial of the Sands recipe quite a while ago, but still no bug mount.

I do almost think it's better to do a couple of things though:
- Actually do Kalimdor digs instead of Pandaria ones. I think you get more Tol'vir frags per time that way. (They really increased the # of Tol'vir spawns at one point, you won't have to dig up too much "Night Elf Trash" to get one usually.) Just make sure that as soon as one spawns you go clear it.
- Don't burn yourself out! :lol: I haven't gone on an "Arch Grind" like that in a while. Just do an hour here or there waiting for raid groups to fill and stuff like that. Wouldn't give up on it completely though!

How many Tol'vir rares are you missing? (I have 2 still - the bug mount and a BoA something-or-another).

I think I've done all the other rares. I know I still have the ring, sold the crawling hand (creeps me out), and I think I vendored some of the others due to lack of space.

Really think old world arch would work better? Flight times from the north are a pain..

Shouldn't need to make super-long north/south flights - portals from the main town can get you to Hyjal or Uldum as needed. I try to do existing "North-ish" (Felwood/Ashenvale/Barrens) ones until an Uldum dig spawns, then port back, go do that, and clean up any "South-ish" (Tanaris/Ungoro/Feralis) ones until I'm out of those, then port back, go to Hyjal, and start on Northern ones again.

(I'm Horde, which helps a bit for digsites in, say, Southern Barrens - going from ORG is a little faster than going from Hyjal. *shrug*)

Got my brewmaster to L90 on Saturday and geared for ToT LFR today. Then promptly lost interest in grinding that thing on a second tank. Had a look at my priest alt and noticed she had the 3k part of the legendary done. So I killed about 150 animated whatsits on Isle of Thunder to get the revered prince's rep co-quest. Then saw "change in command" as the next step. Good luck getting a group for that at this stage of the game. :(
