May 24th 2010 10:52AM I'd say my most recent was in ICC10.
I had "sweeped" the room for traps and missed one. Well, one of our healers tripped it. Being in a "BAMF" mood I proceeded to yell in Vent that I've got it Evasion tank style!
Our MT tried to warn me as they were running towards it "Trazken, that's not a good idea"
BAM! 15 second tank just became a 1 second casualty. I'd forgotten about the 25% dodge reduction.
I still get ribbed about it now and again.
May 10th 2010 11:18AM "You don't know what a got until it's gone."
"Be careful for what you wish for"
Two phrases that seemed quite appropriate for the topic. The former GM wants the officers to step up, but when they do, he finds they no longer need him.
Apr 27th 2010 8:33AM Frankly, I've not felt epic in the game during Vanilla/TBC. Well, maybe Gruul. I did have a lot of fun on that fight.
The rest of it, not so much. Granted I never got to see Sunwell, but BT was a bust as was any of the earlier raids. I didn't even find any Vanilla encounters to be epic.
Though for those of you who do, I honestly think most of it is because information on all the bosses is cake to find. Back in Vanilla there was none of that, you pretty much had to learn for yourself.
As for myself, honestly, Putricide was the most epic so far. Sure, people are going to scream "but he's so easy!" but my team recently just downed him and for being what everyone in the guild considered "gimped" group, we were pretty dang excited. Or Dreamwalker, that ewas epic, we almost wiped but our lone paladin healer finished her up to full health seconds away from getting facesmashed.
The epic in the game is definitely there, it's just us older players have a hard time recognizing it anymore. I find this extremely evident in my team, there are like 4 of us who have been playing since vanilla and the other 6 are new as of late TBC/early Wrath and I can't count how many times the 6 have gotten extremely excited over a boss kill or even the Wrathgate cinematic whereas the other 4 of us are like "cool".
Apr 25th 2010 3:04PM Sounds like a pimp to me.
Apr 15th 2010 10:04AM I don't know if mine was so much of a blooper as more of the recipient of a malicious scheme. Well, not really malicious, but I should have seen it coming.
Anyways, back when Karazhan as the bomb, we were running through on one of our first runs of the place. It was around Halloween time.
I was just chillin in the middle of room (i'm a rogue) full of ghosts (right beside the 2nd entrance). We were waiting on a few AFK's to return so we could start into new territory And suddenly BAM!
I get turned into a bat, thrown out of stealth, and proceed to frantically mash Vanish forgetting I can't cast in bat form. Raid wiped while my buddy (a hunter who wanded me) FD'd to escape it.
Apr 12th 2010 10:39AM Personally, our 10 man team (one of four) is completely self-sufficient.
For Flasks we just run Ulduar up to Freya. We get a ton outta that and then turn around and have our herbalist/alchemist create what's lacking. We don't pay a thing out of pocket.
For gold, we run easy raids (given current gear levels) such as Naxx. 15 gold a boss drop per person, plus enchanting materials.
Really, the only thing we have to pay out of pocket for is our repair bills. It works quite well for us (the guild management/officers/whatever has even been pushing for the other teams to do the same.)
Mar 30th 2010 8:40AM My most recent was just a few nights ago...
My Raid Leader decided I needed to level up Jewelcrafting on my rogue to go with my Engineering. He proceeded to provide all of the mats needed (except for Saronite, but I had farmed up some) and I spent the next few hours watching a cast bar repeat itself.
Fun? No. Grafeful? Quite.
Mar 17th 2010 10:29AM I had a similar situation. My very very first character was an UD rogue. I got him to level 30 and quit playing for about a month. I eventually got him to level 55 but absolutely despised him so I rolled a hunter and made him my main for most of Vanilla.
My brother decided to start playing around the AQ patch so I gave the rogue another shot, except I went as a Male Troll this time. I haven't "mained" another character since then. I did raid as a Restoration Shaman in TBC back when the "Rogue Boom" was going on, but I never ever gave it priority over my Rogue. It did give me a greater appreciation for healers though.
Mar 17th 2010 10:26AM Ok, I give up. This comment system is terrible. It cut out my 2nd comment as well and it was only like 2 more lines worth of text.
Mar 17th 2010 10:24AM Fail comment system, cut part of my comment out.
Anyways, I went on to say that I enjoy the rogue, I think, because of it's lackluster-ness. Even with it being a fantasy game, I'm not a fan of magic wielding damage dealers (hence, no mage, priest, lock). I prefer the simpleness of the daggers of a rogue. Though oddly, I don't mind healing on my Shaman one bit. I just can't stand the enhance for anything other than questing.
It also failed to post my "
