In heroic mode.

It's particularly bad for those playing overseas, as the lag factor makes it even harder. Even if you click it as soon as you are able (and I mean spamming the thing even before the animation comes up), the 700ms+ lag means someone else you see dismount after you started capping gets the achievement.

Insider Trader: Who keeps the shards? {WoW}

Mar 8th 2009 1:19PM I disagree that DE'ing loot does not leave the enchanter worse off. If every enchanter just rolled for gear then DE'd for themselves, guess what? All enchanting mats will only be accessible on the AH. This means more profit for enchanters. DE'ing for PuGs leads to more supply, which undercuts enchanting revenue from the source. Sure, you can charge for enchants, but I see more people offering enchants for free, and even paying for skillups.

And as stated by another poster, yes, it is a service. And you should pay for a service, as you are getting something for it. If you don't like it, don't ask for it.

Insider Trader: Who keeps the shards? {WoW}

Mar 8th 2009 12:57PM @ Wolftech:
Disenchanting is like mining, in the case that he is describing. If there is no enchanter, there is no shard, just as if there is no miner, there is no ore. The difference is the vendor value of the drop. There is no vendor value for nodes, and that's where the contention is at. An enchanter can offer vendor gold for blues, but it's too much hassel for most. It's easier to just roll greed on everything and hope to win the roll. Hey, same chance of me getting a shard by the end of the instance, and less problems for me.

A mage providing a table, that's a class ability. Lock and stones, once again, class ability. It is not my job to DE stuff for a PuG, it's a courtesy. Is it a cooks obligation to provide a feast? No, they can if they want, just as an enchanter can DE if they want, or just keep quiet and DE their own blues that they won. This is what I do, haven't had any problems yet.
