Feb 8th 2009 12:42AM First off, change the Vault loot table. There is no reason why a boss you can faceroll should drop best in slot gear. If your gonna keep the loot table, the lockout should be 1 month, not 1 week.
Second off, if your too much of a nub to check the dungeon settings before zoning in, then you deserve to get locked out.
Even if your not raid/group leader, you can still check the dungeon setting by looking where you would go to set it.
Keep the lockout timers the same except Vault. Extend that to a month.
Dec 5th 2008 9:31AM All you people who say Loken does not deserve that place underestimate the number of nubs that try to run that place. Its been the daily on my server 3 days in a row. With the accessibility to heroics by undeserving numb nuts, I can completely understand his high kill counts. He is not that hard of a boss, but nubs that like to stand and not move during fights will get WTFPWN'd. Sorry, but brain check anyone?
Nov 28th 2008 1:58AM Too many assumptions are being made regarding the AE totems and ToW.
1) In a raid, is there a second elemental shaman in the group? If so, your both not dropping ToW because they don't stack. Thus, in a AE situation, one elemental shaman can drop the AE totem and everyone still benifits from the ToW.
2) When you are PvE grinding, since when do your AE totems kill level 70-80 mobs without you touching them? The only time those AE totems actually kill anything without you hitting them is when they have less than 1k hp. Good luck finding that in Wrath. However, the AE totem would be handing if we are pulling 3+mobs with our CL. Sure, the AE totem will never pull aggo from us, but a buff to the damage is always welcome. We can all admit that the damage output from Magma totem was pathetic.
3) In a raid situation, Elemental shamans will benifit more from ToW and using CL. With the 2.5s cooldown, its more benifical to not move into range, keep the ToW up, and spam CL. Target, CL, tab, LB, tab, LB, CL, repeat until pack is dead. If the raid has decent dps, most of the AE pack will be dead before we move up into range, drop totem and run back. Keep to what makes sense, and not try to pad your Recount meters.
4) Fellow Shamans, save the QQ for something really matters. Our voices are louder when we don't pitch a fit over silly useless matters.
