I just had one last week--I didn't know I was *going* to have one, but a 3-year-old crown came off and while examining my mouth they discovered they MISSED a root when they put the crown in. Whups!

So this time, they got to remove "necrotic tissue," i.e. the dead nerve that was just sitting there. Naturally, what with dead tissue having been up there and all, the whole thing got infected the next day, resulting in the worst pain I have ever endured in my face.

The moral to the story: it could be worse!

So the tooth is that your ongoing dental problems have left a cavity in your enthusiasm this week? I hope you can brush up on it and feel better. There's still some fun to be extracted from this week, and by gum, you're just the man to find it.

I guess the molar of my story is this: brace yourself and chew through it!

I strongly recommend whisky.

"If there's anything you'd like to know about the MMO genre or the site itself, Ask Massively is here to help every Thursday afternoon."

Kinda jumped the gun on this one :P

As a contributor to a gaming site that involves keeping up with many, many, many MMOs, do you find it harder to commit to a single game than before being forced to be exposed to so many?

Does this mean they will add dentistry to the crafting skills in WoW???

@Space Cobra

I would expect dentistry to be more of a combat skill tbh. Like "root canal destroyer combo" or "tooth yanking haymaker" ;)

@Space Cobra For Trolls one could be a 'Tusk-Tender'.

I for one can't see why they don't have cosmetic items to hang from or paint on one's tusks, they're a Troll's most prominent feature. And females need tusk enhancing jewelery to make their diminutive tusks stand out.

Back when I played I chose the craziest looking tusks I could for my Troll female, but they were still nearly invisible from a distance, more like a Vampire with an underbite than a proper trollmaiden. :D

Usually we try not to jab your gums with a suction, but otherwise sounds about right.

Dude, I had 5 of those done all within a few weeks. Talk about ongoing nightmare, going to the dentists office at 7PM each evening after work in the winter. On top of it all, I had to spend a lot of my saved up vacation money on it...

Eliot, how come you're the only blogger here who bothers to add the extra value of fun image text? What makes all the others so slack?

Can Guild Wars 2 really pose a threat to traditional subscription games when it launches?

@J45neoboy

Not exactly an official responce but...

"It is unknown what pay model NCsoft will be using for Blade & Soul, they have yet to announce one. Expect to see a P2P (pay to play) pay model based on NCsoft's track record."

http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/1345-blade-soul-faq/#9

This is what I am suspecting. Since Aion East to my understanding is still P2P. But it has done well...unlike it's Western sibling.

On that note, I will also call that Wildstar will be P2P at first too.

Suggestion to Massively:

Dear Massively, when nuking an undesirable post, could you please edit the post by stating "moderated" instead of deleting it outright? Which causes a complete and utter confusion when the thread is broken up. Thanks.
