No. (That's the one that says "pet can't be killed during BW", right?)

I think Growl is just broken vs them - had tried a similar thing a day before on Kros (was on my moonkin, had a new-90 MM Hunter in the group with Growl on) and the pet couldn't hold aggro at all. I ended up tanking Kros with my moonkin in Bear Form instead.

It seembs the BW glyph effect is counted as a immunity by the game, thus making all enemies ignore the pet. Maybe it's intentional to not allow you to use pets to soak stuff that isn't intended to be soaked.

Actually, its not treated as an immunity, but with the glyph effect #5 on BW comes into play; "Apply Aura: Mod Threat Flat - Temporary", so it actually flattnes the pets threat for the duration. (I found out when I duoed naxx25 right after we hit 90 with our then RL) - disc priest went splat on Patchwerk - I had been using chain MD to pet, so I didn't :P

Based on the tone of the Blue posts, "Yes, we know hunters are OP in PVP, let us finish nuking them", I'm anticipating needing to change specs or mains for 5.4. So the glyph really won't matter anyway. I've never seen so many blue posts for one class saying "Yes, we are gonna nerf them more".

So patch 5.4 is the same as 5.3 which was the same as 5.2 repeat until whenever you were last happy with hunters,

Pretty much, there's more noise about it than ever, since the QQers seem to have realized that they are being listened to, and Blues are responding.

For some reason I never got on the Mass Effect franchise when it began, so I'm playing the first game now after I got my hands on the trilogy pack. Conversation choices are pissing me off. They're just poorly designed!

Seems like half the time I either only have bad choices, or the choices don't actually reflect the action my character takes when chosen...

Earlier I chose an option for something along the lines of "He should be told this information.", at which point my character goes all rage-mode and starts telling off a guy whom I actually liked.

Then just now, I had these three options:

a) We'll fix this (No, because I don't think it needs fixing.)
b) I'll work on it (What, that's basically the same bloody answer!)
c) I'm done with this (Yes, but I can see that this is going to start a rude conversation)

Where's my goddamned middle ground.. :(

EDIT: Went with c), which first led to the quest NPC telling me I'm a jerk, and then my squad mates. :cry:

the bottom answer normally is the renegade answer, whereas the top most answer is the paragon one.

Yeah, I assumed as much, though it doesn't seem to be consistently overly nice/mean. Chosen both Paragon and Renegade answers quite a few times and gotten pretty decent and neutral answers in return. I dunno, I just wish there'd be more consistency between what the answers seem like they'll do, and what they actually do. :|

But eh, screw that, I've just gotten my own space ship. That makes everything ok. :lol:

They specifically designed paragon and renegade to not be godd/bad, but situational. The paragon will do what is right (even when rude), and the renegade will do what suits them the most (more or less) - both options have the same tie-in that Sheppard is a military (wo)man, so (s)he will do what is military throughout both of them (ie. work towards solving the problem at hand).

The center one is the neutral one.

Welcome to the weirdness that is trying to automate roleplay. Neverwinter Nights back in the day had the same problem (at least in the official campaign).

Seriously, I've just gone back to P&P for my roleplay fix because of it :P

sometimes you don't actually get what you pay for... well, unless you count maybe a fancy box and logo. ;)

Seriously though, I feel with certain types of consumer electronics, you have to actually get to a pretty high price-point before a real quality/craftsmanship difference is discernible. And even then, it's not a guarantee.

Don't get the ones with an in-line volume control. That's the bit that breaks the most often with me (and they are always unfixable because of the way they are wired up).

I felt like NWN did a better job, though I guess one could argue that having a more pure good/neutral/evil system is easier than ME1's system, which like Nooska says is a bit more situational. With that being said, I wasn't nearly as critical of these things ten years ago (or however long it's been). :roll:

It's ok, I have a friend who once after not winning a loot in LFR threw his keyboard on the wall and pretty much destroyed it. We were on skype so I heard the sound.
