Portal seeds? Almost pointless


The new seeds (Unstable Portal Shards) which allow planting of portals are pretty much pointless, but the overall idea is ok.

I’ve created one which went to Darnassas and can’t for the life of me think why that is useful. A few posts out there too seem to concur.

Here is what I’d change.

  • Make then allow selection of the destination city on use. In the same way as the Engineering teleporter for Northrend.
  • Consider making them usable by any character on that realm. So that folks will give flexibility to their alts.
  • At the moment they are only usable at the Farm. Perhaps (and this might be too overpowered for the novelty they are offering) allow them to be used in other places – say at any location where you qualify for the Rested buff; like Inns.

Mages must think they are a quaint idea. And Shamans. And Inscriptors.

Happy killing, Typhoonandrew


Plants vs Zombies

Via a GeekoSystem feed, and from the folks at Rock Paper Shotgun, World of Warcraft – Plants vs Zombies….like in the game! Darn cool.

Incredible, awesome, and I’m still thinking this could be a hoax. Just because total-biscut did a vid doesnot mean its not 100% legit, or at the very least it might be a trick or bonus for the beta folks. But if its not a hoax, this would be a great way to swindle away serious hours as the raid starts. The in-game mini-games is something that is kind of odd.

If the WoW game is good enough, do we need mini-games?

Or if you’re paying to play wow, is this extra? Where is the line?

It would have to be phased though? Griefers watching the fields for new players might have a field-day.

And please tell me that their is a flight point, or inn nice and close, so I can bind my hearth to that Inn, and port back to play anytime.
