Nov 17th 2007 7:08PM AV just isn't fun anymore.
Yes, it used to take a whole evening to win. but it was a blast. Everyone had a role. All the quests mattered. It was crucial to get out your Cavalry and air support, then time your zerg with them.
Summoning your side's elemental was a risky but very rewarding propect.
Regarding your comments on mines, though: Mines can easily be soloed by a rogue in about 3 min. Stealth in, gank the single NPC that controls the node, and friendly NPCs spawn and do the rest of the work. I usually tag mine on the way through to Frostwolf.
Nov 4th 2007 7:39PM Very easy for me to solo farm Underbog for the hibiscus.
I put on my +stealth cloak and boots and got about 7-10 flowers per run. Hit it up twice a day, 5 resets each, and I was exalted in no time.
Didn't even need to burn my Vanish. Nothing up to the point when the nagas appear detects stealth, even the first boss.
Oct 23rd 2007 3:24PM Gee blizz, we raiders wouldn't have to arena for a piece or two if you're itemization didn't blow chunks.
Case in point: rogue weapons
Not a single frakking offhand DPS sword in any raid instance until Black Temple.
No fist weapons at all until The Eye.
No offhand daggers until Hyjal.
This is just stupid. ZA seems to be filling some of the gaps, but it's just bad design.
