Can I use a single copy of the game to install on my Mac and PC or do I have to buy a copy for each? Tnx I am thinking of returning after nearly 4 years out.
You'll only need one. You can install the game on however many machines you want, but only one can be logged into a given account at a time.
In other news, looks like 3.2 is going live tomorrow....which means no one here should count on playing WoW tomorrow. Patch days kill the game for at least a day.

I'm curious how many other CAGs are/were hardcore WoW players. I've played a few different classes but that last one I've played (the most) is my mage (link is in my sig).
PS - I've been playing on and off since April 2005 (mostly on, and haven't played much for the past month and a half) and for the most part I've played Horde on Kil'Jaeden server.

I basically took all of BC off after playing Vanilla for a couple of months, but 2008 has been a little underwhelming for me console-wise so far, so I got back into WoW a couple of months ago, and finally leveled my Tauren Shaman to 80. So:
Pridehoof, on Thorium Brotherhood, and a stupid amount of sub-40 alts.
It seems like CAGS are scattered all over the servers, but I wonder if some kind of CAG guild might not be possible somehow.

"My cave was merely a setback..."-Onyxia
She has lurked in her lair and done battle with the many brave adventurers who travelled to that familiar location over the years. Now, in honor of the World of Warcraft 5-year anniversary, the dreaded brood mother Onyxia is being revamped to make a return to the forefront of Azeroth, as part of our big plans for the upcoming 3.2.2 content patch.
This permanent update to Onyxia will convert the dungeon into 10- and 25-player modes. We will be adding new items to Onyxia’s loot table that have the same model as some of the classic loot from this dungeon, like Tier 2 helms, with stats updated to match the current level of content. There will be a special new item too: a normal drake-sized 310% speed flying mount modeled after Onyxia herself called an Onyxia Broodling. We will also be updating the encounter mechanics to be more fitting for modern raiding, but we can guarantee players will get to experience the frightening horror of deep breaths once again.
Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.
We’re very excited to bring this classic encounter back to provide a fun new experience for both new and veteran players. Further details will be available in the near future, and we will be setting up the Public Test Realms soon to help test out this fight along with all the new content we have planned for the patch. Keep an eye on the forums for updates!

And also, dammit 'number83' you took my chance to claim glory for reporting that onyxia info. I just noticed it right after you posted that. =)

Also has anyone done the new Champions raid? A bit disapointing how easy it has been, I really hope the hard modes get a lot more challenging.
Well tomorrows BlizzCon and everyone is expecting to see Cataclysm expansion to be announced along with the 2 new races. From what it sounds like they will be trying to regurgitate the original WoW to some degree (assuming the the rumors are correct).

I wonder how many bad Teen Wolf jokes the starting zone will have.

I'm really interested in this, since this was my biggest complaint right before I took my most recent break.
- Cross-realm instances are now available and use an improved matchmaking system to assist players in looking for additional party members. As with Battlegrounds, the realms in each Battlegroup are connected.
Planning on starting WOW back up again after a ~5 month break. It's just so damn addicting.
By the way, I'm horde on Nerzhul & alliance on Dark Iron.
At the moment, what do you guys think is more important for end-game: Healer or Tank?

Oh yeah, the new LFG tool is damned awesome. In my battlegroup, Healers and Tanks can get in a group for any Heroic in under a minute. DPS classes usually take a bit longer, but always under 15 minutes. Worth noting that it's only for use with 5-man instances, not the raids. With the right spec, you can do 3-4 instances an hour and get a ton of badges.

- There is a new Looking For Raid option available to players that can be accessed via the Raid Information screen in the interface or by typing "/LFR."
- Players will be able to browse the system manually for any other players looking for a raid dungeon group.
- While browsing LFR players may sort the list ascending or descending by left-clicking the following headers: Name, Level, Class, Tank Role, Healer Role, and Damage Role. The crown is the Leader Role (representing a raid group with 2 or more people). Players can left-click on this header to sort the list with groups at the top or at the bottom.
- Hovering over players listed in LFR will display their name, class, level, roles and comments. Hovering over a raid/group will display the leader's name, the raid information (number of people in the raid), comments, if there are any bosses dead (and which ones), and if there are any friends from your Friends list or ignored players from your Ignore list in the raid group.
The Looking For Group chat channel has returned and can be accessed in all major cities (similar to the Trade chat channel) without the use of the Dungeon Finder interface.
Salamando, what do you think is more valuable/needed for end game: Healers or Tanks?
It would be cool if you could manually pick out people for the LFR, even if they aren't in your battlegroup. That way we could actually get some CAG raiding nights going.
Posted 11 February 2010 - 05:30 AM
In terms of which is more valuable (healer or tank), I can't give a clear answer. In pick up groups, both are usually in high demand. I've seen just as many raids get stalled by a lack of healers as I've seen get stalled by a lack of tank. If you're looking to join a raiding guild, they almost always have a set of tanks they prefer to run with, so I couldn't really see going that route (unless you're insanely geared).
Or you could spend enough time to gear up both specs. The dual-spec system they have in place allows you to easily switch between talent specs (don't know how familiar you are with dual-specs).

Either way, thanks for the answer, Salamando.

My main is a warlock and I have been reading the warlock changes and I am not sure how i feel about them. Sure they sound cool but it will be a lot different. I guess that goes for more classes so far. Cata will be a big change for sure.

I tried a Hunter, Priest, Warlock, Pally, and my latest: a Druid. Maybe I'm just used to being a Mage.. lol
Though, my Hunter is now level 51 so I might just take that character to 80. Maybe once I'm 80 and fully geared and have some really awesome pets.. it'll be fun. /shrug
I do think it'll come down between Warlock and Druid. I miiight lean towards Druid because it'll give me a chance to have an off-spec healing and I could eventually learn how to heal.
I don't know where this is going. I'm bored and I hate Tuesdays.
