Lichborne: Preliminary patch 4.3 impressions for death knights {WoW}

Oct 4th 2011 4:16PM you can file a ticket and get your Acherus Knight's Set. There's no way to have a DK and not have owned the set at some time. That's how I got mine back.

The Queue: Undertow {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2011 4:17PM here's your Uldum Post Mortem:

"Uldum has been hidden from mortal eyes until recently when Deathwing's assault an Azeroth broke the protections put in place by the titans. Players must seek out the mysteries of this forgotten land while making new friends and teaming up with old ones in an attempt to keep the minions of Deathwing from using the Re-origination dev....
%(^U*@#!!!!! I just missed by dungeon queue because of this stupid unskippable cutscene!"

Ready Check: Looking into roll-based loot systems {WoW}

Sep 30th 2011 8:52PM I miss how we did it in my raid group during Wrath. We were a ten man that was pretty consistent for almost two years.
The "Don't be a Dick" system
All items are open roll.
Don't roll on things you cannot use.
Don't roll on things that are obviously better for another person (i.e the STR gun is for the warrior but the rogue should let the Hunter have the AGI bow and the warrior can't roll on the daggers until the rogue has them already)
If you win something and you think someone else might benefit more, or if they can convince you that it will benefit them more, feel free to trade it.
Oh and we used the in game roll system Need/Greed/DE, so if you want it for offset, make sure you NEED (but again, if you happen to beat someone going for main spec, then please let them help the raid as a whole)

My raiders loved it and I can't remember us having a drop of loot drama From KelthuZad through Kingslayer.
(it did suck tho when my prot paladin couldn't upgrade her shield to save her life, but it wasn't the fault of the system so much as the fault of the loot tables)

Phat Loot Phriday: Wolfslayer Sniper Rifle {WoW}

Aug 26th 2011 7:46PM I'm on my third go around for thing.
Got it once, then upgraded to the Phoenix Bow.
Then realized that BM was king and Wolfslayer was best in slot pre tier 6 and had to farm and farm and farm....

Now I have to do it all again =(

Official Transmogrification preview {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 12:55PM Scarlet set is Mail, you wear Plate.
Sorry, won't work.

Officers' Quarters: More on raid saves {WoW}

Aug 16th 2011 11:34AM (just a note, I haven't done this, I'm just noodling out the consequences of the new raid lockout system)

But everyone else in the raid could do the same thing (sell access to the boss). It's not like my doing so keeps them from doing so.

As for the group wiping and wanting their 10k back, that's not really my problem, I sold them an opportunity at Staghelm, not a guarantee of victory.

Sharlatan, by your logic I should also give a cut of my auction proceeds to my guild. It was the guild benefits that allowed me to skill up so effectively in Enchanting and Alchemy and added Heavy Bags. So, should I tithe 20% of my sales of Truegold and Power Torrent Scrolls?
By that logic even there...what if I donated half my entrepreneurial endeavor of selling Staghelm Opportunities to the guild? Is it still wrong?


Boweiinspace you misread the first post...in this hypothetical, I'm
not downing the boss, the people I sold the boss too are downing him.
When raid night rolls around, the boss will still be up, I'll still be
in the raid, nothing will be different for our raid.

Aug 15th 2011 8:53PM Hypothetical:

Say I'm in a raid that s cleared to Staghelm. Can I sell access to him to pugs or toher guilds. I'm lead, we get zoned in, you're at Staghelm, I make someone else leader and leave 10k richer before you even pull.

Can I do this multiple times a week?

If I do and I don't even down the boss to keep from getting saved should my guild even care?

The Queue: 5,000 feet {WoW}

Aug 9th 2011 1:02PM Teguila comes from the Blue Agave cactus and does NOT have worms in the finished product.

Mezcal comes from a different cactus and has traditionally always had a worm in the bottle.

If it says Tequila and it has a worm smile and walk away slowly.
