3 things that will become more expensive in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 6:49PM no more than it is now because the 5 dungeons per hour limit will still be in place.

Breakfast Topic: What role do you play in your guild? {WoW}

Feb 7th 2012 8:44AM I'm an Officer/Guild Advisor. Basically I'm a walking, talking WoWpedia/ElitistJerks/WoW Head.

Breakfast Topic: Spill your 5-man PUG stories here {WoW}

Jan 26th 2012 10:09AM It amazes me the polarity of skill you'll see in groups from one to the next. Yesterday as my example of bad I had a group on my Shadow Priest in Vortex Pinnacle. The tank from the start admitted to being new to the dungeon so I offered tidbits of wisdom to help out as far as pulls and where to stand to help DPS maximize damage. The newbie tank wasn't the problem. In fact props to that tank for learning so well.

No, the issue was the other 2 DPS and the healer. I should have realized there was a problem with the Hunter when he would walk to the fight about 3/4s of the way through it before actually engaging.

Then there was the DK. Oh that DK. He sat there during and for three minutes after the trash pulls DPSing the lurker before Grand Vizier Ertan. Oh he wasn't afk only because he was using abilities the whole time, not just auto attacking.

So we engage Ertan. The tank, hunter, and I get inside the circle and the tank and I engage the boss... The healer and the DK stand outside the storm and the DK is killed by Storm's Edge. The healer realizes what's going on and gets inside. Tank and I are still fighting while the hunter is still standing. I tell the hunter to engage the boss. Nothing. Kick the hunter. Healer dies because they are healing everyone but themselves. Wasn't an issue of no mana because they died with 60% of theirs still available.

Thankfully the boss was at like 15% at this point because the tank was doing all the damage while I did my best to keep him alive. We barely kill Ertan, I send the tank an apologetic whisper and tell him I'm leaving and I go.

This was a classic case of players complete non awareness, and in the case of the hunter, laziness.

Of course, the next group I have in Stonecore moves like a pack of level 83 terminators killing everything. Go figure.

Aiding the Alliance: Tyrande Whisperwind and Malfurion Stormrage {WoW}

Dec 21st 2011 7:53PM I hate filthy neutrals like Malfurion. With enemies you know where they stand but with Neutrals, who knows? It sickens me...

The Queue: These new white and silver Coke cans are freaking me out {WoW}

Dec 9th 2011 3:47PM I have four 85's and have yet to even attempt any of the Cataclysm dungeons (I know, shame on me). Are they easy to just hop into or should I be doing extensive research first? I don't want to drag a group down by being a dead space chicken.
