I would highly recommend Three Thousand on Alliance side Saurfang-Oceanic.
I raided with them for quite a while when stationed out in Okinawa, Japan. Best guild I've had the pleasure to be a part of.
Tell em Tyr sent you
Dec 16th 2010 11:12AM Because it goes back to the arms race scenario, not every class can (or should) have every ability. Every tank has a reliable stun/interrupt/silence somewhere in their arsenal. So no matter what your group comp looks like, at least one person there should be able to do something about it.

Watch videos of the Illidan encounter sometime, Maeiv does exactly that.

He's not referring to initiating a pull, he's talking about picking up stray mobs that the tank didn't notice were already aggro'd.
It's always good to snatch those up and bring them to the tank.
Jun 8th 2010 8:28AM In all honesty, if a reasonable suggestion that the boomie was absolutely correct didn't adjust their attitude, there's nothing you could do. The lack of accountability the new LFG tool provides simply precludes it, and as they had the majority in the group, any vote to kicks would go in their favor.
Your only options really would be to drop the group in protest or stop healing them. Is the second option a mature one? Hell no, but damn is it satisfying.
I actually had a similar situation happen to me when I was recently gearing out my newly 80 enhancement shaman. I was in H ToC and we'd just downed the 3 champions after the jousting event. My gear being rather low, I immediately dropped after the kill to drink and regen mana, facing away from the npc entrance gate. Someone who was in a rush started the next event, which resulted in my totems face pulling all three packs along with AC Paletress herself. Didn't go so well for us...
So, as we're running back I said "Sorry folks, didn't see we were pulling the next group, hadn't pulled back the totems yet" To which the healer responded "Sorry doesn't pay my repair bills"
He proceeded to get me killed another 3 times through not healing before I stood off to the side, refusing to dps until they kicked me.
Moral of the story: No amount of mature reasoning will placate some people on the internet. Try once, and then move on.
Apr 30th 2010 11:36AM That's honestly about all you can do.
What I would recommend is hanging out in trade for a bit and see what crafters are spamming /2. Those tend to be the most trustworthy, as one deal gone wrong can ruin their business. If you can't find one of those, when you put out the message for your crafter, wait until you have a few replies. Choose one from a more well known guild on your server. The key to both scenarios is reputation, both that of the individual and of the guild.
Aside from that, Blizzard has access to logs of just about everything dating back farther than I care to think about. I once saw logs of someone trying to scam a GM dating 3 months back presented to the public for hilarious results. If you do, unfortunately, run into a thief, submit a ticket and Blizz has your back.

Oh, believe me, I fully understand the implications of four warriors independently charging, hamstringing, and MSing everything in sight.
It's a beautiful thought

Rated up for jazz hands comment, you made me chuckle
Dec 27th 2009 9:34AM You know, when Wrath was still on the PTR and Mirror Image showed up for Mages, I died a little bit inside.
To this day I wish it was the Arms Warrior's 51 point talent instead of bladestorm. Don't get me wrong, I love me some bladestorm, and I see where they're going with the whole arcane magic copies of the Mage idea, I do.
But... WC3's blademaster introduced Mirror Image to us, and if that's not an Arms Warrior, I don't know what is.
Dec 27th 2009 9:19AM Aside from http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40406 which is a mace, what 2-Hander with Str and Agi are you referring to?
There are axes with stats very similar to polearms, and thus good for Druid tanking, were they not axes, but I can't remember any with str.
I do miss the days of itemization like this, http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28773, though. Ah, well, Cataclysm soon, soon
