Jan 27th 2011 9:37AM To be honest, I'd say that Stonecore isn't even the hardest heroic. Grim Batol and Deadmines are tougher in my opinion.
Jan 27th 2011 9:36AM I dunno, I often run with guildies and we tend to be patient and reasonable.
I think when some people run in a group, they act however they want because they know they won't be kicked from the group, which makes them act more like jerks than the usually would. And then there's the people who go "I'm never gonna see this person again, who cares what they think of me?" They don't even treat their random party members like people.
It sucks, and there's not much you can do about it except group with guildies. I'm sorry you had such bad experiences.
Jan 27th 2011 9:32AM I don't think Stonecore is THAT bad. When I healed it for the first time on heroic, we wiped exactly once on each boss (except Azil) because I was unfamiliar with the mechanics. Even though the fights were explained, I had to see it happen to understand (like on Slabhide, I was like "Ok, LoS Crystal Storm", but I was expecting a big "Slabhide is casting Crystal Storm!" that never came, which caught me by surprise).
After I got the gist of the encounters, everything was fine. I haven't had problems there since (although Ozruk's a bit annoying when he casts Paralyze literally half a second after casting Elemental Bulwark).

Jan 22nd 2011 9:01AM I absolutely despise our mastery. The RNG is completely terrible, and we can actually go several DoT cycles without actually seeing an orb at all, crippling our dps. Our dps fluctuates greatly because of this, and it just adds needless complication. Add that to the fact that we already have to stack Evangelism before casting our DoTs, and we have the longest potential rampup time in the game.
I would much rather just get a passive DoT bonus.
Jan 22nd 2011 8:49AM Nah, I don't RP. I'll kill animals on my druid or pick flowers on my DK. Occasionally, I'll imagine my character's reaction to something, but it never influences my choices in the games, and I never actually do it in /say or anything.
Jan 18th 2011 3:22PM That was fantastic. I particularly liked the Wind Chime interlude.
My favorite will always be the "From the Mountains" Thorim remix.

Jan 13th 2011 6:39PM I agree. Thrall could do make the island awesome with his shaman powers.
We'd be best buds and go on wacky adventures.

Jan 5th 2011 4:32PM Eh, I think I actually wrote this article before Cataclysm launched, it took them a while to accept it. If not, then I have no idea why I said Dalaran >.>
