Ask Gauss

Sunday is upon us once again meaning it is time for Ask Gauss. The post of the week where I answer some of the questions I have been asked throughout the week. If you are still clueless about how to send in your question, once again it is very simple. There is a link in the top right of this page or you can just send and email to Like I said very simple and easy. So without blabbing on and on let's get to this weeks questions.

What do you think of Blizzard's decision to not release the Firelands with patch 4.1?

The simple answer is I agree with there decision. If they are going to stick with their plans of letting people experience the content while also not having attunements, and changing the valor point system each tier then I agree with it. People didn't get a chance to experience Ulduar for a few reasons. It was much more difficult then the previous tier and much easier then the tier that followed it. Also the ToC tier was the first time 5 mans gave what is equal to todays valor points. All these factors contributed to Ulduar being ignored by the vast majority of the WoW population. Why do something much more difficult when you could put in a third of the effort and get more? Also instead of just delaying everything they are giving the community a chance to gear up to make raiding easier so that they can see the content quicker. This is a much better solution then giving a buff and making some of the content faceroll. I am also not a fan of Ulduar was hard so lets make ToC a joke. I want the Firelands to be on par with the current tier, that being the most important thing to me.

I read your post about Armor customizations and I thought it was a great idea, what about adding to that and making guild specific armor?

This is actually a great idea. This would also build on the idea of bring guilds together like Blizzard wants to do. We have guild banners, tabards, pets,and mounts. So why not have a guild specific armor set that is designed just like the tabard. There could be a cloth, leather, mail, and plate sets all of which would just be visual. You would keep the same armor stats you were wearing you would just be representing your guild. Truly great idea and wish I thought of it.

If you had a theme song what would it be?

I think I went over this awhile ago "the One and Only" by Chesney Hawkes

So that is it for this week hope you all got what you were looking for. So for next week's Reader post, what is your WoW theme song? Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


  1. Guild Armor set would be sweet everyone would look all put together for screenshots

  2. Could be a problem though of people not liking the way the guild tabard is designed
