Dec 8th 2008 1:36PM No, hes absolutly right, anyone that complains about "costs" for anything while raiding just doesnt put in the time or effort to actually raid effectively. Doing heroics, even as a tank, i MAKE money. At just under 5g a boss kill doing 4 bosses in CoT if you make the timed event thats 20g, my repair bill, 13g. And that doesnt count the enchanting mats, greens, boe blues and cloth that drop like candy in heroics. Theres very little you can do in game and NOT make money.
Several of our raids members do complain about the cost, there are two of them, and they took the weekend off to hit 80, and then now only log on to raid, thats it. If thats your idea of a "raider" then most of the time you really shouldnt be "raiding".
Dec 8th 2008 1:27PM I saw all the old Naxx content back in the day and so hasnt a majority of my guild, either at 60 or on some old school raids on weekends at 70.
That being said a lot of the encounters take a new look with new abilities, boss ability tweaks, and just general changes to raid composition which can greatly change your strategy for each and every boss.
Also if you go in there on 10 man, its basically a dry run for the 25 man version so everyone suddenly knows all the fights. The only fight that isnt pretty much completely the same is Instructor Ras which requires mind control on 25 man and on 10 man gives you orbs to MC with.
And Malygos is an interesting fight on its own without having to try and learn it from scratch. How to kill him varies wildly on how many and of what class your bringing.
Basically your GL is on a power trip and needs to be told to chill out, for many people the fights are interesting enough without having to wipe in the first 10 seconds because no one was off tanking on Patchwerk.
Dec 1st 2008 7:42PM Confirmed, my first drink i was made into an ice block, it happened in Dalaran so i dont know if the ice block has any in combat effect, but it does last 30 seconds and it can be clicked off.
Oct 26th 2008 1:04PM The Shadow of Doom is tagged to the person that summoned him, if he isnt tagged to you you were slow. My group and I killed 33 Shadows of Doom this way last night. All the people that are AoEing are doing is taking aggro and helping you kill your Shadow. Many times we had thought we had gotten three or more of the mobs but someone else was faster than we were leaving us with only one or two shadows.
Note: If the person runs away and leashes the Shadow or they die then it becomes taggable.
Sep 22nd 2008 2:36PM I love quick instances with lots of bosses. This will become everyones favorite "badge" farm instance. Youll also farm all the new enchanting mats from this place. And yeah, ive done a lot of the bosses before, but i still love to go hang out back in BWL, AQ40 and the old 20 mans just because they can be fun and everyone wants some cool looking loot for theyre alt or a bug mount.
