    WOW Armory

    Hmm... maybe I'm just behind, but when did the Armory change? They now have character models up that display what you look like, and let you cycle through different animations.

    How long has that been going on?

    I think it came out today actually or maybe late yesterday but it's a new feature they announced awhile back.

    Guess that means all rogues should now log out wearing nothing but a talbard and the tier 10 helm to give a good impression to people.

    This is a new change they added just this week.

    Guess that means I better start logging out in cool-looking rp gear... lol

    Although, I do like the armor I've got on now (look-wise, anyway)... just need Burnished Quel'serrar and maybe Neverending Winter now, and I can tank and rp at the same time... lol

    It's funny to point out that the model viewer in wowhead is less glitchy and lighter on the browser's load...

    I laughed so hard when this rolled out on a night of massive raid-server instablility.

    Good thing they have their priorities in order, eh?

    What does one have to do with the other? Web servers and game servers have nothing in common except account/database queries. For such a large company as Blizzard, it's quite possible that the web development team is a different department.

    Anyway, I'm liking it... props to Blizzard.

    Regardless of which department coded it, there are finite resources avalible to a company and a limited number of projects that can be funded by those resources.

    I'm merely voicing what you'll hear from Cyclone and other battlegroups who got their raid times cut in half (or worse) for most of the week because of massive intability.

    It's like paying state taxes for decades and watching the local coffers fund something silly like a billion dollar aquarium in a land-locked city instead of re-paving roads that havent seen a service crew since the 80's.

    I lol'd.

    But well said and true imo.
    There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.
