Ask Gauss

It is Sunday the first day of the week and the day of the week that is followed by the least favourite day of the week. But does anyone actually hate Sunday? I really don't think they do. Sunday in Gauss land though you should know is the day I sit back look at some questions asked to me during the week and then I answer them. So let's get to it.

I saw during the Reader Post that one was concerning epic gems, are you in favour of them being drops rather then from ore?

I was actually a big fan of the TBC system. Where they dropped in raids and later on were able to be purchased with badges. This is why. Epic gems should be treated just like epics. They should not be able to be gotten without participating in a raid which drops them or you will have to pay the price with either their hard earned badges or now would be points, or you had to by a crazy amount of gold. Prospecting allowed people who shouldn't have had access to something access to it, but that really was the model of rather and that which they are trying to get away from. So I am in favour of the Cata system although it has flaws it is much better than the wrath system.

What do you think of the 7 year anniversary award being a Tabard?

Well it being a tabard and it having an experience buff is a great idea. What i think is rather lazy is the fact that the tabard itself is not a new design. It was the tabard that was won originally during the PVP event back in Classic for those that got the highest Honor during the event. Now normally when they regift things they change the colour or give a slight design change, but they didn't really do that this time which is rather disappointing.

You going to watch the new WoW commerical?

I am not going to tune into a football game just to watch it. I will watch it on youtube afterwards.

There you have it this week's edition of Ask Gauss. For next week's Reader Post I want to know what you thought of the new WoW commercial. As always you have until Thursday night to get your submission in. Enjoy what is left of your weekend!


  1. completely agree on the gems. People who sit in an auction house all day don't deserve to have the supply of them

  2. When we are carrying out a routine check, we have evidence to show that your account have been involved in the disputed transactions.
