Go to www.google.com.  Do an internet search for the world of warcraft mac client (v 1.12).  Click on the search result links until you find a working downloadable mac client.  Download the mac client.  Install the mac client once the download is complete.

note:  you might need to have bittorrent installed in order to download the mac client, as it seems that nearly all mac clients out there are only available as torrent files
2  Community / General Chat / Man dies after 3-day gaming marathon. on: January 19, 2015, 04:22:21 pm
http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/19/world/taiwan-gamer-death/



Hong Kong (CNN)A 32-year-old man was found dead in an Internet cafe in Taiwan after a marathon three-day gaming binge, the island's second death of an online gamer this year.

The man, surnamed Hsieh, entered the cafe in Kaohsiung, Taiwan's second largest city, on January 6, Jennifer Wu, a police spokesperson from the Hunei district precint told CNN.

An employee found him motionless and sprawled on a table at 10 a.m. on January 8 and he was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead from cardiac failure, she added.

"He has been unemployed for a long time, and internet cafes were the only place he could go to," she said.

"His family said he would disappear for two to three days on end."

Police first released details of the case late last week.

It is not known exactly how long the man lay dead in the Internet cafe but police said his corpse had begun to stiffen so he must have been dead for several hours before they arrived on the scene.

Police said gamers in the café continued as if nothing happened even when the police and paramedics arrived.

"The CCTV footage from the Internet cafe showed that he had a small struggle before he collapsed motionless," said Wu.

Cold temperatures and over-exhaustion from the long hours spent playing games likely contributed to Hsieh's cardiac arrest, a police statement said.

According to the Taipei Times, the man was a "regular customer" who often played for consecutive days.

"When tired, he would sleep face down on the table or doze off slumped in his chair," the staff member was quoted as saying.

"That is why we were not aware of his condition in the beginning."

Taiwan is no stranger to deaths from marathon sessions of online gaming.

Hsieh's death came after 38-year-old man was found dead at an Internet cafe in Taipei on January 1 after playing video games for five days straight.

And in 2012, the corpse of man who died playing online games went unnoticed for 10 hours by other gamers and staff.
3  Community / General Chat / Racial Weapon Skill Bonuses on: January 15, 2015, 07:15:28 am
Hello,

Question about racial bonuses to weapon skills.  I'm a dwarf with a gun skill of 300/305, and it's been there for a really long time despite me using guns a lot.  Is it possible to obtain a weapon skill of 305/305 if you have a racial bonus to that skill?

Some buff descriptions do not change even when they (and their tooltip descriptions) are affected by talents.  For example, you say devotion aura gives 700 armor normally (900+ with talents).  I'll use this as an example.

If you spec 0/5 in improved devotion aura, I think you'll see the following:
-the spell description says "increases armor by 700"
-when using devotion aura, the buff itself will read "increases armor by 700" when mousing over
-when using devotion aura, your actual armor value increases by 700

If you spec 5/5 in improved devotion aura, I think you'll see the following:
-the spell description says "increases armor by 900+"
-when using devotion aura, the buff itself will read "increases armor by 700" when mousing over
-when using devotion aura, your actual armor value increases by 900+

You should do the following:  write down your armor rating with devotion aura on, then write it down again with devotion aura off.  Is the difference 700, or 900+?
