Protestant here.

This because I often read negative things about chri...

Seems like it. I have no high level warrior, though. Still, it is a protection build which is the tanking tree (which is, as you probably know, excellent for group PvE and raiding). If you want to be a tank in the hardest instances you probably want to be able to get aggro, keep it and improve your ...

Playing a Night ELf druid I know that warstomp (the tauren active racial ability) can save your life. It can interrupt spells and abilities, allow you to cast a spell (or bash away without being hit yourself), prevent a foe from running away for a short time.. and it can affect more than one charact...

My recommendations for a first character would be: Rogue if you want to be a a lot of melee damage fast. Sure you're not as thick skinned as a Warrior but you should easily be able to handle two equal level mobs. My experience with Warriors is that they're a meat shield and without support 2 equal ...

Wizard. I never really liked the sorcerer class as presented in the 3rd edition. I'd rather there'd be a group of people who would be gifted magic users who learn magic by exploring, as if they can pull with their mental grasp (or gift) what wizards pull with their spells and by learning. That shoul...

Don't forget the orc racial which gives them an additional 25% (to be 15% in the next patch, though) chance to resist stuns and knockout effects. Very handy against any class with stuns (rogues especially, though).

Orcs also have +5 to axes (which hunters can use).

Yeah they changed the layout (I'm not much of a fan of the new layout, as well). I generally only look there when I look for something to download. For other things it usually better to head to the forums.

Soon. You could look here: WoW-Europe.com Forums -> 2.0.1 FAQ (pre-expansion patch) (U: 14-11-06) . Schwick's information is usually pretty reliable. If I'd have to guess I'd say it'll probably come in a few weeks. Good luck if you want to make GM in time. I'm glad I've got my Knight rank (looks so ...

Non-photographic/depicting known people. I think most people are like this because people want something that they can call theirs. Or at least is not someone else's. This can be seen in nicknames as well. For example if I'd pick, say, the avatar of Edwin from Baldur's Gate 1 (love that one. So.. st...

A friend of mine really likes HoMM 3 and doesn't much care for 4. Says it's got lousy AI and all. This isn't just my friend but also by the players in general 4 was not really popular whereas 3 was. This can also be seen in the release of HoMM 5 which in style is much more like 3 than 4. Although I ...

Of course you can buy food for your pets, but you can also get it in other ways. As you mentioned meat and fish, I'll focus on those. Meat - Just kill a few beasts (wolves or boars or such), the meat they drop, even if you can't eat it, is usually possible to feed to your pet. Fish - Learn fishing. ...

Hmm, about Tycho's weapon, if you gave him a plasma pistol and still he's not usin' it, try to steal his combat shotgun, leavin' him with the pistol only. Tell him to use his best weapon if you want to be sure. I'll bet he'll use it. And my personal opinion, a .223 with Ian is more deadly than a pl...

Well, as it is, Old Town has a nice supply of weapons which could last you a long time.
