Are you serious or just kidding? Because it looks like you seriously suggest to do that.. Youre are not, right?
Jan 30th 2011 9:11AM LFD would be amazing if tanks (almost all of them) were nice players, instead of being selfish, rude and (very often) immature people. As a dps I don't care too much if I have to queue for 35 mins, I understand that some roles are less played (tanks, healers).
What ruins my experience is waiting 35 mins and popping in a group with a unbrained tank. And to be honest that happens very often. The end result is some sort of "let's silently run and hope the tank wont act as a little child". No one talks, even if tank manages to do bad pulls, does not hold aggro, whatever.
Yesterday I pugged a heroic with a tank who had greens and blues and -obviously- he wiped 3 times on 1st and 2nd trash in Stonecore. I asked why he did not queue for normals, the answer was "stupid question, my iLevel is ok for heroics, just shut up and dps".
Group wiped 2 more times at first boss (worm), then healer left the group in the middle of 3rd tentative and we disbanded.
35 mins waiting in queue, 5 (6) wipes (15-20 mins time lost), disband, back to Stormwind.
Is that fun? Not really.
Jan 24th 2011 12:28PM To use the trinket as soon as you can, just macro it with your shots (Arcane/Steady will be enough). This way you can forget about actually "check" when the trinket is ready or not.
Jan 24th 2011 10:58AM Patch 4.06 will introduce new Alchemist Stones, just keep in mind that before you decide how to spend your emblems/gold/time/whatever
Quicksilver Alchemist Stone
+351 agi (red gem and bonus included)
+194 crit (equip)
+40% healing bonus
Sounds sweet :-)
Jan 18th 2011 5:21PM Good hint. From now on, prices will drop like flies and AH will be flooded with crystals.
I love super-famous blogs :-D
Oct 21st 2010 10:26AM When WOTLK went live, I remember the first time I saw the packs of mobs in Howling Fjord, right above the first village. The land, the animals, the trees... it was like a Nagrand 2.0. Superb. I still love that zone.
Oct 8th 2010 3:01AM Another valid alternative is the Traveler's Backpack (http://www.wowhead.com/item=4500). 16 slots, not soulbound (good for your alts), easily found on AH.

LFD tool is damned annoying if you're DPS. On my realm you have to sit and wait in any case. You can't just afk and have a cooffee because that "estimated time: 15 mins" could be anything from 5 mins to 25. And you know what? You can stare at the monitor 15 minutes and BE SURE that as soon as you turn your eyes away it will pop the invite.
And half the times I lose it. Doubling the waiting time.
Jun 22nd 2010 9:37AM Well a random PUG is not intended for mastering the "social" skill, I agree on that... But right now is mostly like running a single-player quest. Even worst, people feel completely free to act as tards, mock/blame players when they fail at doing something and so on. After all you run with (*) players (from other realms)... so who cares about good manners?
This is why I would replace the 2xFrosts from daily heroics and put them as rewards from a nice daily quest (doable alone or not, but NOT cross-realm at all).
