Nov 6th 2008 2:40PM will the murloc dance for me if I win?
Mar 26th 2008 7:37PM while I'm not down for tipping tanks (unless i personally over pew-pewed and caused a wipe), what we do when we're short is pay one of our pally's the spec/respec fee from holy to prot and back - gets us thru the heroic/raid, and leaves him/her where they were plus a few badges and maybe some loot
Mar 21st 2008 3:19PM please listen to Scott and the posters on this one. We had a similar situation, and the guy who stepped in tried to push our casual raiding g into a hardcore one.
He failed and stealth /gquit, joining an top20 guild in our server (he at least had the decency not to ninja the bank).
In the process of all this he:
1) chased away half of our core healers in tanks because of his abrasive "missile" leadership style
2) invited a bunch of idiots into the guild (seriously, gchat doesn't go a day now without someone saying ~"why can't i go to ZA with u - i can't get into kara cuz i don't have the key, so what, i need epics to get epics?")
3) screwed up all the previous raiding teams we'd had
4) bitched incessantly about how no one was taking HIS decision more seriously
Besides this, he was clearly unhappy. The problem, essentially, was that he tried to force the guild to fit him, rather than finding a guild where he fit.

omg - a useful post among all this qq'ing - are you sure you're in the right area?
Mar 11th 2008 2:41PM Nothing to show for it?
People are posting about this crew worldwide for (not) PLAYING A VIDEO GAME and they claim they have nothing to show for all of their firsts?
Feb 15th 2008 8:09PM I'd also add that end-game content isn't inaccessible to casual gamers. There are two ways to get to it:
a) join a mixed-casual guild that has hard-core raiders pushing progress and several raids on farm (that's how I've gotten to see Kara and SSC )
b) wait. Just as Onyxia, Nazz, MC etc. are (relatively) easily accessible now, so too will the current "end-game" content be more easily accessible when Lich King arrives. Lich content will be accessible about 1.5 yrs after release when the next expansion comes out etc.
Feb 15th 2008 8:00PM First: Blood - ur an idiot. An "elitist moron" would require only x9s with blue or purples, simply suggesting that x1-x3's sit out of BGs while leveling, especially in light of the newly-nerfed PvE leveling, is COMMON SENSE.
Wanna know how x9's help the community? By WINNING BG's. Perhaps you're from bizzaro world, but on my realm winning:
a) is more fun than losing;
b) generates honor 3x as quickly as losing
Second: I call BS on any non-loc who says they've approached DPS tops as an x1-x3.
That being said, I see two reasons for x1's to x3's to BG outside of idiocy/selfishness/honest unawareness: healers are useful regardless of level and the 51 quest in AV.
Feb 14th 2008 2:44PM Revived Arcane Brilliance ftw!!!
For new mages, I believe it would be helpful to do more build overviews. E.g. when I was leveling my mage, the WoW forums were replete with discussions of 10/48/3, but no one said what skills were the "standard" or why
Discussion of spell rotation and some common heuristics for altering the base rotation would be cool
It'd also be neat to see how best to function in raids based on the other members of the raid (e.g. how do you play differently if you are with two other fire mages as opposed to a frostie, a loc and a hunter)
@ 25 and other DPS-toppers - could you post more substantively: when you run with other mages, what is it that you seem to do differently? (since non-verbal semantics don't come across on posts, I'll clarify that I ask this sincerely)
