May 8th 2008 7:52AM If I remember correctly he's not actually using a meter. I believe he's mend petting his pet after he does X growls and measuring how much healing is done before the pet loses aggro. I remember reading that threat per healing of mend pet is a well established constant, so this would be fairly reliable unless they made an undocumented change to mend pet also.
Apr 25th 2008 9:53AM Exactly. I had a person come up to me today. Was polite. Spoke in sentences. Used punctuation. Best of all didn't ask for money directly. Asked if I had some spare cloth so she could tailor and sell the wares. I gave her 5G because I felt like being generous and she wasn't a run of the mill beggar. I don't mind helping out lowbies, I mind it when they demand, expect or otherwise do not know the proper way to ask for help.

> Get a boar, make sure he gets a charge off before you attack.
Perhaps you're not understanding what the change we're talking about means. Charge currently gives you an AP boost. Right now (and especially pre 2.4) this meant it would give effect growl causing it to cause more threat. Post this upcoming patch that will no longer happen, causing charge to be not much more threatwise than Dive/Dash.
Apr 23rd 2008 7:43AM Yeah. It's not like holding aggro was easy before. Now I'm going to be a melee hunter, and not by choice.
Apr 10th 2008 3:13PM One I've found to be immensely profitable is Enchanting. Buy a low lvl green off the AH, DE it, sell the mats, and triple or quadruple your investment.
Apr 1st 2008 8:09AM Haha, I ended up with Corit also on Arathor :)
Mar 25th 2008 8:37AM I thought I would post a follow up to this, though it will be doubtful anyone sees this. I was the Anonymous WoW player who wrote in. First let me address one point: the amount. Some comments indicate that what I was complaining about was small potatoes and not worth the gripe that I made. Being about 30 levels ahead of where I was when I sent this in, I completely understand what you mean. However, at the time we were a VERY low level guild. I was one of the highest level players, and was only a 40. The GM, his wife and a few others were all right around that level. So while I agree, that now I could sneeze and make that sort of money in Outland, at the time, it was a LOT to all parties involved.
An update on the current situation shows that my fears were founded. I left the guild shortly after I wrote this in, partially spurred by my concerns, and partially because I had an idea of what guild I would have loved to join, and found it accidentally not too long after. I did stay close to a few non-officer members of the guild and spoke with them often. I never spoke ill of the guild officers, in case my fears were unfounded. All I did was post a message (way before I left) showing the money in vs. money out so that all could see the facts (and that's all I posted; no theories or accusations as I did here). As time went on their numbers dwindled and the members I spoke to decided enough was enough. They too had enough with the leadership and formed their own guild. One one hand I am glad I saw the writing on the wall before it was too late, but on the other I am sad to see a guild I worked hard in go the way of the dodo. In the end though I am happy with the guild I'm now in, and am wiser for the experience.
Mar 18th 2008 4:18PM I'd like some more information about this "RL."
Can I get "phat lewtz" there?
Mar 7th 2008 10:04AM Sounds like me. I'm usually head of strategy in any instances I run, either as PuG or with my guild. However, I have NEVER won a battleground. Ever. I try various strategies: stay with a group, work on defense, work on offense, pick off the weaklings, pick off the healer, etc. All for naught. I always end up in some situation where I end up all alone with either a group of players ganking me or stun locked by a rogue. It really sucks, and frankly makes me want to throw something through my screen. I'm a very cerebral person, so coming to grips with there being no "answer" really frustrates me.
