Dec 19th 2008 1:07PM Boy I hear ya, mandy. I was running a PUG the other day, healing for some strangers. One of the DPS went afk without warning, then another (a hunter) announced that to fill the time, he was going to... well... ...tame his serpent... but it much more objectionable words. Needless to say, I left that group ASAP. I just dont understand why some people would share that information in such a public forum.
Dec 17th 2008 12:45PM I'm not going to say it's easy, but I do feel like I need to post here. I have been 80 for a while... and I kind of like the challenge of bear tanking. Yes, I have done most of the instances you posted, including being the elemental tank for Sartharion. Yes, it was hard...
...but was it impossible? No. Was it fun? Well, I had fun doing it. I can't speak for other people, but it feels really good to finally be on an "equal" level as other tanks.
In comparison, I feel bad for the other MTs in my guild. I pull much more threat than them. On a fun Kara 5-man run last night, the warrior MT just gave up on trying to hold threat over me while I DPSed as Bear. I out dpsed everyone else with swipe spam and pulling large groups.
I love to feral tank right now. Yes, it is a challenge. I actually enjoy running around trying to get people with Swipe, and timing it right so no mobs get past me. Maybe that is what feral tanks were designed to be. They weren't designed to be like any other tank, so qqing how they aren't like a certain class is just rediculous. If you want those abilities, roll that class. Feral druids can still MT any instance and raid out there.
Dec 4th 2008 12:50PM I'm not certain why anybody would let you write for such a great website as this, but I assure you that your views are quite seperate from a majority of the WoW players. I know on my server, a lot of the guilds, probably 97%, aren't even through Naxx. Even the self-styled hardcore guilds are still clearing through Malygos and Sartharion 10-mans. I know because I was asked to PUG OT for one of them. And no, it was not "easy," it actually took us about 2 hours to get down that single boss, between learning add fights, learning drake fights, learning that you need to clear all the adds, learning that pulling Sartharion with one drake up isn't a very good idea, and then finally learning the real strategy to the solo bossfight. I still have no idea how the raid will manage to split itself up so much in a 10man to get 3 drakes, but we barely scraped by with just Sartharion. And this guild was definitely one of the best on the server.
So maybe we are some backward server that has slow progression, but please, get off of your high horse for once and stop posting this ridiculous dribble, I had to counter this nonsense in my guild forum once already to give the people in my guild still leveling some hope.
Nov 29th 2008 5:36PM I'm betting that they just didn't have the harder endgame ready to release yet. We all know about stuff that didn't get into WotLK. Give them time, dear chaps, give them time.

Nov 12th 2008 6:36PM Mine still says "Open" and "Pending," though I have been charged for it. No idea why they haven't shipped it, I ordered it in the first 15 minutes that they offered the CE >
