  1. nice to see more and more people dribbling in. Welcome!
  2. Sounds like someone who should have started to teach at University, doing lectures
  3. In my experience biology is more or less liked as a subject in school. Math not so much ;). Whenever i talk to people about their experience with that subject in school it goes like "woahh math... i hated it". Sometimes it's even considered "cool" if you were bad in math in school, which makes me kind of sad. Stories like yours make me sad too. It's true that bored unmotivated teachers can destroy any enthusiasm towards a subject (experienced it myself in school). Many studies indicate that by the way: Teaching methods, cool material and all is really good and helpful to have but in the end a huge deal comes down to what kind of person the teacher is.
  4. I played there a while ago and think it's quite good. Leveling was okay and Naxxramas was good too. I heard that their raids are good scripted in general so i think it's worth a try
  5. Wait, wait, i'm joining in too! So yeah... about me. I'm from Germany (born and raised) and work there as a teacher for biology and math (yeah i know...). For me teaching is the coolest imaginable thing to do and i'm quite interested in my subjects even outside of school. I really like to read a lot of books and articles about biology and also love to puzzle over mathematical stuff. Apart from that i do a lot of hiking and climbing and playing the drums. I'm also really into calisthenics (bodyweight training)... sounds crazy but i really like to torture myself I used to play a lot of videogames when i was younger but not so much anymore. However, there is this one game which never lets me of it's hook About animals: yes i like them, but i love, ABSOLUTELY LOVE plants... because they are so much cooler. And just in case you don't believe me, let me tell you a little story. There once was a bird and a mistletoe. It was autumn and the mistletoe was full of white berries. The Bird was sooo hungy and when it saw the juicy berries it thought 'they look so delicious, i should fly down and eat some'. So the bird flew down and began to eat berries until it was sated and coudn't eat a single more of those berries. Some time passed by and the bird began to feel really painfull because it had gotten itself a baaaad constipation (yes, i had to look this word up...) because of the crazy stuff, the mistletoe berries are made of. The bird sat down on a nearby branch and the pain was getting worse and worse. Just as it thought it could take it anymore the bird managed to get out the sticky slime that once were the mistletoe-berries. And as the bird sat there shitting, the sticky slime adhered to the branch where a new mistletoe should grow next year... So i ask you now... who won? who won? stupid bird... Ok seriously now. I really like my plants. Ohhh and almost forgot my single most nerdiest hobby. I'm actually collecting and press-drying plants (yes like little kids like to collect and press-dry different leafs and stuff but in a more serious way). My herbarium (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbarium, just in case you never heard of herbariums) currently contains over 200 species and i'm constantly adding more. Hope i didn't disturb you
  6. Welcome! Always nice to see more people joining and getting active around here
  7. For me it really depends on the time i'll have to play when Crestfall releases. If it comes out mid Q2 for example i will have a ton of time play. If it comes out after August i won't have equally as much time. Basically i want to level two toons simultaneously. With my Warrior i want to experience the whole journey (many different zones, every dungeon with the associatd quests). I also want to level up my professions on the way. It will be backsmithing and Mining though, so let's see how long i will be able to keep up with blacksmithing while leveling . The other toon will be a mage which i'm leveling mostly for farming, so it will be more like powerleveling for this one, efficient questing and few to no dungeons.
  8. Well... who cares? (no offense against you!)
  9. Nice update! I'm a bit surprised you instantly started working on the project again after all the shit of the last couple of weeks. Thanks a lot for that and for all the hard work you guys are doing in general. I love you all
  10. PvP or PvE? Horde or Alliance? If you choose the right side i'm looking forward to meet you in game anyway, welcome!
  11. Greetings, My main goal on Crestfall will be to try and become main tank of a raid (nothing hardcore, but still). I allways loved tanking and i really like the idea of this position in the raid. What's appealing to me is the fact, that i'm able to bring the raid forward through my individual efforts (good strategies, crafting of good equipment like restistance specific equipment, theory crafting etc.). I'd argue that no other person's dedication has such a huge effect on the success of the hole raid (although i'd of course respect everyone's hard work the same way). There are many guides out there, which are telling you how to tank properly or what you should know equipmentwise. Although this knowledge can be quite important, there is more to know to become a successful main tank. I think the warrior is one of the most social classes in the game and thus requires the player to be social too. I'd guess many of the people who where main tank at some point invested quite some "social time" in the guilds they raided with. So i had the idea to start a topic where all the experienced main tanks can share their stories of how they obtained the position (no matter if in vanilla or any other expansion). Did you become main tank immediately after joining your guild or did you obtain the position through various stages of personal development? It doesn't matter. I think many fellow warrior's who want to try this out would like to read about your journey and the tips you could pass on to them. You can talk about everything you experienced along the way. What kind of behavior would you like to see from a main tank? What are your personal preferences considering professions? What do you think on building up a good and strong network of players for the purpose of supporting each other (by providing materials, helping with dungeon runs etc.)? I would like this thread to be a platform to share personal experiences and not to discuss about ways to play or equipment. There are other threads for this purpose. Most of all i hope there will be some people who are interested in this. Now it's your turn... ps: sorry for any weird english in this post
  12. honestly, reading some of these comments makes me feel like a real noob (although i don't consider myself a bad player). All the people who want to down those uber bosses and stuff... sure would be cool to do but i really never thought about this. My biggest goal is becoming the main tank of a raid... that would be awesome. I really love tanking and i always wanted to be eye to eye with the big bosses! Sadly my dream may never become true
  13. Crestfall holy resist capped
  14. Because 5 people are the "quintessence" to a achieve something higher? I absolutely have no idea why Blizzard decided, that it should be 5 people. But the number 5 has a huge impact on many cultural, ancient scientific and religios concepts and phenomena. For example there are five... ... columns (is this even rhe right translation?) of islam ... wounds of Christ ... elements of Taoism (even five elements in western tradition if you count Aristoteles' "ether") Also 5 is a very important number of symmetries in nature. For example: Many blossoms, echinoderms (seastars, sea urchins and such) have five segments. This is actually another good example: Many vertebrates have their endings of their extremities segmented in five parts. All in all the number five can be seen very often in many contexts, and this may be the reason why it's also important in many fantasy universes. Ok that's just guessing and maybe i've gone a bit to deep with this post but i hope you get what i'm trying to say
  15. I have a question regarding this statement. Will Maraudon be available at the beginning? If i remember correctly it was added with patch 1.2 on retail. I guess it would be easy to just keep it closed for some weeks after launch but for me personally it's an important point because i would like to experience all of the dungeons on my way to 60 and doing maraudon later on while already beeing max level would not be the same. I know it's not the most important question (as many players hate Maraudon anyway) but none the less i wanted to ask.
