Mar 18th 2010 10:41AM I mentioned to guildies just the other day that lately I've been seeing folks refusing to buff, refusing to provide food/water/cookies/soulstone, refusing to offer anything to the "team". Not every group is decked in T10, and those buffs are helpful for keeping the lower geared folks alive when the higher geared folks take chances.
I get it that folks want to get in, get out, and get their emblems, but it seems like a disturbing trend; a little common courtesy goes a long way toward enjoyment of the game.

Have your friend check the Armory for each of his toons to see if there is recent activity. If not, all is well and he just needs to get the patches and create a battle.net account. But if some are missing or showing activity, he needs to call Blizz during the week to start the restore process.
He'll need the keycodes off his boxes to prove to Blizz he's the "owner" of the account. Once he's done that, they'll change the password and he can log in.

In my experience, Holy looks for int/spirit where Disc looks for spellpower. I can actually go oom after blowing all cooldowns in Holy spec, but almost never in Disc. Disc enjoys 5%+ more crit and a larger mana pool but loses 10% spellpower so I gem for those differences.
I'm sure other people have different experiences but I hope that helps.
Oct 28th 2009 6:00PM Enchanting is a combo profession since it gathers by disenchanting and consumes by enchanting. We pay a price for acquiring mats (the vendor price at least) where some other professions are separated into pure gathering and pure consuming.
Am I jealous of the herbalist who gets a frost lotus from gathering a frozen herb? Or the miner who collects rare gems from a node? I've never been offered a /roll for any gathering mats inside an instance. At 60g each, watching the herbalist collect a dozen frost lotus before we take out Freya is almost painful. So yes, I've been envious of those who benefit from pure gathering.
But I've always offered to DE the BoP items that drop. It never occurred to me to charge for it since it takes just a second to push the DE button. I can't fathom the thinking that leads to the righteous indignation displayed here.
Aug 20th 2009 3:56PM I cannot imagine why anyone would think the enchanter should keep the shards, nor why they should be tipped for disenchanting BoP items during a run. Most everyone provides some kind of utility to a group; I don't expect to be reimbursed for providing the reagents required to buff the group, either.
Establishing loot rules up front in a PuG is always a good idea, just so there's no confusion later. But I've seen my share of ninjas and loot hogs too and it's probably just going to happen from time to time.
I've never seen this kind of controversy before and my main is an enchanter.
Jul 27th 2009 1:27PM Seems like a simple resolution to over-recruiting: start a second raid and have at it.
Mar 18th 2009 8:42PM Summons will be available for lowbie Horde toons. Contact Brighteyez in game.
Jan 30th 2009 11:24AM 6 second cooldown on CoH is fine, imo. Priests have plenty of other tools to use in those six seconds, including stopping a waste of mana through overheals.
