Question about Realms: In the next couple of months I'm going to be moving from the East Coast to Colorado (which is awesome). Currently, my characters have a home on an Eastern Time Zone realm, so my question is: Is there an appreciable difference in lag when you live pretty far out of the specified time zone? Should I be trying to scout out a new realm?
(Side note - I'm mostly guildless, and with CRZ, I'm not super worried about running things with my RL friends if I swap servers)
With most modern broadband connections, you won't notice much difference between an east-coast or west-coast server. You may notice during actions that talk to the server a lot, like mass mail/auction interactions, but for most play, the difference is negligible. I wouldn't worry too much (unless you're also getting considerably worse internet access where you're moving).
With GC saying there will be a big announcement during Mists or rollout or whatever, but NOT new character models, what do you think the odds are its the tri-spec that was data mined ?
I don't think it's tri-spec. The devs said that the feature is a new feature, and (I believe) that it has to do with old content in some way. My personal bet is some kind of level scaling for older zones or questing/dungeoning with lowbie friends a la Guild Wars 2, but we'll see.
I have been to every BLIZZCON, but this year they finally passed my price threshold.
Tickets were $175 in 2011 too, unless you mean your current price threshold, in which case, yeah, I feel you, dude.
