Apr 24th 2009 11:25AM Hell, I used the Sigil of the Frozen Conscience on my DW DK up until DW died a horrible death in 3.1. Level 74, but BiS for a DW DK. Was I embarassed? Nope. I let my consistent placement in the top 3 dps in Naxx 25 speak for my choice of gear.
Mar 23rd 2009 5:45PM Most mod-able? HA! What about G.E.C.K for Fallout 3 or T.E.S. Construction Kit or NWN? In all honesty all of those beat the tar out WoW's addon development which is basically a subset-api exposed via L.U.A., which itself is FOS language governed by the MIT license (oh the irony!).
You know what? I hope someone finds out that Blizzard has used GPL'd code in WoW so they will be legally forced expose all code that uses said GPL code. What a wonderful bit of turn-about that would be!
Mar 16th 2009 4:37PM I agree with scott. Shit happens. Hell last night I died in a fissure on heroic KT. First time that ever happened to me, but it does happen and I try to be understanding when it happens to others. But repeatedly dying by "standing in the fire" makes you a liability to the entire raid. When you have 6 dps die on the first polarity switch during Heroic Thad, all you can do is /facepalm.
We have taken to using addons that call people out. For example, we have one that announces in raid fissure and flame wall fails for Sarth. Some guild members aren't to happy with being called out, but hey, if that's what it takes to improve our progress as a guild we will continue on with it.
Feb 25th 2009 1:40PM The current PTR build even has the brainiacs over at EJ ringing the death knell for ALL DW specs (not just the/my infamous 32/39). There is not a single spec that favors DW as the same spec will do more damage with a 2H due to strike scaling with weapon damage. It wouldn't have been so bad if they just moved HB out of reach of those speccing Impurity (the big booster for 32/39ish specs) AND nerfing its damage. No, they went even further by changing Necrosis to only proc on your main hand and BCB having a 3.0 sec IC. If this isn't clear message from Blizzard devs that they want to stop DW as a DK, I don't know what is. All that being said, I will give people a little more time to test on the PTR before I start rolling on 2Handers again.
Feb 23rd 2009 12:38PM In 10 man Naxx, OS, etc (I am DPS for 25 mans). I usually put about 2500ish DPS (Unholy tank-spec) in my tank gear. Nice thing about DK tank specs, they do the best damage when compared to Prot warrior and prot pallies. You shouldn't expect to out DPS or out damage your DPS teammates. If you are, you really need to find new DPS

Jan 2nd 2009 10:24AM Or you could just learn the fight and pay attention. That might work, huh? Loken does not require a specific party make up to bring down and to say is down right ignorant.
Loken is a harder-than-average encounter and anyone telling you different is a liar. My first time on Loken we wiped twice. Third times the charm, everyone learned to "Walk the line" as I put it and we downed him AND garnered a "Timely Death" achievement. Oh, and that was with a holy pally healing, least amount of AoE healing in the game.
Also, if the impending CoH nerf is a sign of things to come, you can expect the chain heal, face-roll extravaganza to get popped in the jimmies as well.

Dec 17th 2008 11:06AM I really had no issues with getting my epic flying, cold weather flying and 950g (*gah!*) DK mount before 80 on my DK. I was even able to level mining/BS in the process. The one thing I had going for me is that I have 70 priest that is a 370ish (dis)enchanter. My DK made all his gold, from naught to mount nirvana, on his own, no loans (save for 200g from g/f so I could get epic flying a couple hours early. She was promptly paid back)
- I D/Ed BoE greens I came upon and sold ALL the mats on the AH.
- I sold my frostweave as soon as I had my first aid high enough to get the book to drop.
- AHed all my gems I got through mining (had nothing to put them in at the time anyways)
- Farmed 85% of my ore for leveling BS (which leveled mining in the process).
- Do both starting areas (Howling Fijord and Borean Tundra) one right after another. By doing this, I hit 80 before leaving Zul'Drak, meaning Stormpeaks, Ice Crown and Sholazar Basin where pure quest cash cows, 14g - 22g per quest, depending on the quest.
- In a bit of irony, my BSing made me money. All of the WotLK tanking gear sold very, VERY well at the time, even the green cobalt gear was nabbing me 50g-70g a piece and the blue Saronite Defender shield was pulling 200g-300g and cost me almost nothing to make. After all my cobalt items were green, I just pumped out cobalt weapons to D/E for the Greater Cosmic Essence, which was getting me 40g-60g depending on the market that day.
If you actually invest a little time in making money, you should have no issues affording all of your mount needs by 80 or just couple hours /played after you ding.
Dec 16th 2008 4:19PM I am echoing pretty much everyone else sentiments here. I never liked arenas but loved BGs. Now that you are forced to do both, I won't even bother with BGs. From now on, if I want to get my PvP fix I will just play Warhammer or Guild Wars
