comment Is it possible to turn WoW PC client to a Mac one?
What about the data folder? These files aren't executable and also make up the vast bulk of the data that needs downloading.

comment How can I learn to be competitive in PvP and WvW?
Peter has done a good job addressing how to be competitive, but I just wanted to note: You can't learn how to enjoy something. That's just not how it works. PvP isn't for everyone. If you enjoy it, then go for it good or otherwise (especially WvW where it matters less). If not, then find something else that you do enjoy and do that instead. If you are the type of person who is easily frustrated by dieing then PvP may just not be for you because even when you are good you will still die. Often.

comment If I buy games via the Origin store do I need to install it?
@SergeBekenkamp: As always, if choice is what you are after the best choice is "both".

comment My WoW account was hacked! What should I do?
@Mr.Muskrat: You can avoid the "can't do a restore" issue completely by using a service like Dropbox to store your restore credentials.

comment Can I play Diablo III with one disc, two different battle.net accounts and two computers?
@Devin: Like I said, you can install D3 wherever you want using the CD you just can't play it at all without having a Battle.net account that has the game activated on it. D3 is an always-online game. You will be able to play it with the trail code, though obviously only with whatever restrictions are on a trial account (I honestly don't know).

comment Can I play Diablo III with one disc, two different battle.net accounts and two computers?
@Devin: The disk is meaningless as far as D3 is concerned. What really matters is the key that comes with the disk. This is registered against your Battle.net account and is what allows you to login anywhere that has D3 installed. If you buy D3 online via Blizzard you will get it registered against your account and then you can quite happily use your friends disk to install the game or download it.

comment How does the gold/gem exchange rate get determined?
@SaintWacko: I was in the prerelease, it seemed like they seeded the price at around 40s/100gems. It's since gone down.

comment How to increase draw distance / actor fade?
@DavidYell: With a GTX 560 you should be able to push everything to max I would imagine. I'm lucky with 2x GTX 470, I didn't notice that LOD and shadows both had an ultra setting, and I get a respectable ~30 fps @ 2560x1440 everywhere I've been.

comment Why do turtles and snakes love my marble brick house?
@SaintWacko: I'm 90% sure I saw it in changelogs, but I could be mistaken, I'm still playing on 1.2.5 for the sake of mods myself.

comment How to increase draw distance / actor fade?
@DavidYell: Damn... Can't say I've had issues myself. Have you got up to date graphics drivers? I noticed a huge improvement when I updated mine but it wasn't buggy before either. Might be worth mentioning what graphics card you have too, but at this point I'm not sure what you can do in game to help since this is the setting that is supposed to help this sort of thing.

comment Why do turtles and snakes love my marble brick house?
@SaintWacko: Was fixed in 1.3, but since Technic is 1.2.5 (for now at least) that should work.

It's worth noting that most peaceful creatures require light to spawn, so setting up torches is only helping them spawn, not hindering.

I ended up just trashing these as I left the zone for higher areas... now I'm curious too.
