Jul 4th 2009 2:46PM I was always partial to aerial repeaters... or really just anything that all I had to do was light a single fuse and have a good 45 second to 3 minute display. Of course, living in Michigan meant a trip out of state to buy them... and a place that the police weren't going to bother you.
May 13th 2009 8:37PM This may be a copout, but there isn't one item that sticks out in my mind, however, there is an item set that I've liked since it was introduced, and I think that I may try and convince my guild to help me get when my paladin reaches that point, or even 80. That is the Paladin Tier 2 set. The Judgement set.
I always have liked the art and the originality of that set more than any other.
May 12th 2009 2:31PM It's a comment... It'd also be cool if I won.
May 7th 2009 1:50PM I think the problem with the involvement of the Argent Tournament is that it is so disconnected from everything else. There is one NPC in Dalaran for it... that's it.
With 2.4, the party involved with Sunwell was also involved in Outland. There is no involvement of Dalaran with the Argent Tournament, at least none that I've witnessed. With Ulduar it's the same thing.
Shattrath was involved in everything... Dalaran isn't. With Shattrath, we had NPCs that were training to fight Illidan, then they changed to train to fight and retake the Sunwell. In Dalaran, the mages sit around and talk, their involvement is minimal.

Obviously you've had little experience in any sort of leadership role if that is how you would approach this situation.
You are right to say that this should have been dealt with months ago, however it wasn't, and now Anonymous is attempting to deal with it with some tact.
The situation would be a little different if both the husband and the wife were horrible players, however, one of them is a top raider, the other is dead weight. To say "boot her from the raid. Tell her husband... ...He can quit too and probably will... and then you can replace both of them and end up with 2 good players," is ridiculous
To lose a top raider does more to the guild than just cut one person. There are people that are connected with both members. There are some that will understand, others that won't, there are some that will continue with the guild, there are those that won't. It's the difference between trimming the fat and splitting a guild.
Take it from a guild leader who has been through a situation similar to this. All it takes is one raid leader or one officer to make a decision without consulting the rest of the leadership and suddenly 25% of your raiders are gone.
My advice would be to do what Scott suggested. Failbot is a great add-on for measuring how successful a raid group is. Also, on top of that, speak to the rest of the leadership in the guild. Talk to your other raid leaders, talk to the officers and the GM. If you haven't talked to the other leadership, it is possible they will have some advice that hasn't been mentioned here.
Also, after talking to the leadership, and making sure that they have talked with other members of the raid, "sit down" with the couple and explain things to them and the consequences if things don't begin to change.
Whatever you do, don't just boot her, that will cause more problems than its worth, but at the same time, be sure to handle this quickly before the drama comes from another source.
Apr 23rd 2009 10:11AM First, I would like to say, yes, some people fall into categories quite easily.
However, I take offense to the broad generalizations like, "A priest (or preacher in this case) at church would quite obviously be a Priest."
I'm a preacher, I get up every Sunday and give a message, I visit people in hospitals, I do weddings and funerals. However, at the same time, one Friday a month I box, every other Saturday in the fall I play football, I'm in the gym every morning for two hours, I go out deer hunting every year until I get something.
To make broad generalizations is offensive, at least to me. Most people that meet me don't assume I'm a preacher. When I state that I am one, they aren't necessarily surprised, but that isn't their initial impression.
I understand that this post is meant to be fun, however, as a frequent visitor to the site, and one who is a fan of everything you all do, I just wanted to voice my displeasure with the two generalized, stereotypical statements (priest and warrior). With the hunter comment, you put classifiers in and focused it down. That one I enjoyed and agreed with. But please refrain from making broad generalizations.
Feb 28th 2009 11:10PM I'm not going to say anything either way right now. Though losing 4k armor hurt, and I'm sure I'm not going to like the HP hit. I'm not going to judge it until after I see how SD works.
It could very well make up for it... that, or my dual specs will change from Tank/Resto to Boomkin/Resto... or maybe Boomkin PVE/Boomkin PvP
Feb 24th 2009 9:22PM Too bad the glove enchant is only for plate, not that Feral Tanks really need another armor buff, but it'd be nice with the lowering of our armor in the next patch.
Feb 6th 2009 10:50AM "The big question is where the quiver haste will come from. The easiest way would be to transfer it to the ammo, but then it would also buff the ranged attack speed of Warriors and Rogues, which is probably why we also shouldn't expect to see relic-like bonuses on ammo, unless they're very specific to Hunter skills only."
I'd say handle the bonus just like they are handling Druid AP bonuses on weapons. When equipped by a non-Hunter, the ammo is just what it says it is, but when equipped by a Hunter, the ammo gives the speed bonus on-top of any other bonuses.
You kind of eluded to this with the, "unless they're very specific to Hunter skills only." But I'd say this would be the easiest way to implement it, seeing as how it has worked for Druids.
