Oct 14th 2008 3:44PM @Jon. I do the same thing. And start wondering what's wrong when nothing pops up.
@Epiphanize. Content Patch. In other words, if you or an alt are between 60 and 70 right now, as of tonite you will level faster.
@Robin. Stop with the lists. I feel under-achieving enough as it is, what with raising kids, working, and keeping my guild's website updated.. ;)
Aug 28th 2008 12:52AM I love reading the comments about not being a hunter. My main is a BM hunter, my usual alt is a Warrior. In my guild, my main and another BM hunter are usually in the top 3 dps/overall damage on Kara and ZA runs, and never have I seen either of us under the fifth spot. We can also chain trap, misdirect, and dump aggro when needed.
Yes, there are huntards out there, but there are also tards in every class. The majority of the pugs that I've run which have failed have been the fault of mages. That doesn't mean I stop running with all mages, just the ones that wipe the run consistently.
As for finding a group, I agree with most of the posters. Use your friends list, use lfm instead of lfg, and spam the lfg channel to find a group. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to spam trade as well, although you may get some grief from the people spamming http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28768 jokes.
@Fletch: Sometimes it is the tanks fault. If the hunter pulls aggro and FD's, the tank should still have enough threat to bring it back to him. If you are healing to the point that the mob comes to you, check your tank's gear. He's either undergeared, unknowledgable about building threat, or (not pointing fingers) you need to stop overhealing him.
@Everyone: Omen. Omen. Omen. Download it, install it, use it. It's easy, and it's enough of a necessity that Blizzard is building a threat meter into the next expansion. It will save you from repair bills, and may mean the difference between a good run and a disbanded pug.
Aug 7th 2008 4:32AM What a complete and utter break-down of the loot system. The best ranged weapon in the game goes to a rogue.
On the plus side, I guess I can use this as an argument to start bidding on +int plate for my warrior.
Not only the hunters, but every single member of Vicarious that hasn't been there since the "early days" should /gquit and find another home. The rogue got the bow because he's been there the longest? Give me a break. Things like this are what give raiding guilds a bad name...
Dec 30th 2007 12:16PM I'm really after that keyboard :D
Dec 17th 2007 2:05AM I want this, Horde, of course.
