Balloons. Hot air balloons.
Random question for the queue - my mother is 70, she is retired and bored so I thought about setting her up a wow trial account to see how she likes it. not like I think she's going to turn into uber wow player or anything but I do think there are things about the leveling process she would like. Any suggestions as to what class would be the easiest for her to handle as she has very little gaming experience? I would of course help her along the way, but it's been a long time since I leveled my initial toon and things have changed a lot since then so I'm not sure what toon to make for her.
I'd say a hunter. They're probably the easiest class to pick up. Sure, playing them in endgame might be a little more complicated, but for leveling you can do it with just a couple of buttons. Your pet handles everything else, and hunting down a cool pet is something that appeals to really casual gamers as well.
Any idea when or even IF Blizzard will make Battle Stones tradeable? I have accumulated a lot that I have no use for. And the ones I need will not drop. The generic Battle-stones in the AH are a bit pricey.
Probably not in the immediate future, but possibly somewhere down the road. The developers seem to want pet battles to be a very personal progression. All of the really rare, hard-to-acquire pets and items need to be found by you personally. You can't just dump gold into it to advance. That's why wild pets can't be sold on the auction house.
I won't say it will never happen, but it doesn't fit into their current pet battle philosophy. Maybe one day it will.
I am about to renew my game subscription and upgrade to Mists after more than a year of absence.
I assume I can freely download the game files necessary to play on my laptop upto and including Cata because that's what I used to have. I'll then have to purchase mists. BUT can I also do that on my mac? Or do I have to buy a second copy of vanilla/bc/wrath/cata/mists to play WoW on my mac? Can I share an account between my Dell and my Mac?
As Tristan-nl said in the comments yesterday, you can install WoW on as many computers as you want as long as you're logging in with the same account. You're paying for your account/subscription, not the game client.
My guild and I were raiding Throne of the Four Winds. The ones that had the Cloud Serpents were able to fly straight to the main boss. I tried with my other flying mounts and wasn't able to fly with them. Why is this?
It's a bug. Because Cloud Serpents require reputation to use, they're a different toggle than standard flying mounts. The devs forgot to go back to Throne and turn off Cloud Serpents.
I'd recommend not exploiting it.
