Dec 30th 2009 9:39AM There's definitely something not so random about the random dungeon finder.
EVERY DAY since launch my first random dungeon has been AN, no joke! I don't mind 'cause it's fast - I'm just shocked at the luck.
My DK alt is about 50/50 UK or AN for the first run but I only do a random with him once in a while.

Dec 21st 2009 9:09AM Every random OK group I've had so far goes straight for the two boss run. So it hasn't been too bad. Personally I prefer chasing down the extra badges but you gotta roll with the punches.

I wasn't making the distinction.
Nov 12th 2009 2:17PM "One thing to note is that they don't taunt boss level mobs [...] "
I'm not 100% sure on this. I've had several bosses, including Xevozz, Cyanigosa, and others, see wipes because AotD is dropped and the boss starts spinning around in circles standing still rather than staying on me (the tank.) I've watched the boss' target change to AotD each time...
If you're a DK tank those taunts might be keeping the boss on you but as a warrior tank I've had a bunch of issues where the last few seconds of the fight went FUBAR 'cause of AotD.

Is this a thing you have the option of opting into at any time? or was it something that's come and gone?
Having a little trouble finding what you're talking about when I look at my Account Management page right now.
May 10th 2009 10:16PM Chaining Last Stand and then Enraged Regeneration can also help your life expectancy in tight fights.
If you've got a rage charge to burn hit last stand (increasing your health by 30%) then blast Enraged Regeneration to regain 30% of your newly buffed HP.
Outside of this scenario I really haven't used ER much as a last resort - typically I reserve it for scenarios where my raid leader doesn't call out "HOTs on tank" or I know my healers are overburdened with a wounded DPSer.
May 1st 2009 3:54PM I don't think you can really call this a "nerf" in so far as I think it was an "Oh Crap! We gotta fix this."
For months the Achievement Forum has been buzzing with predictions that this achievement was gonna be bugged and lo ... it was. (granted it wasn't the bug we expected)
With Children's Week here and now the most logical solution to removing it was to tweak it instead.
I think the "School of Hard Knocks" achievement will be hard but as long as it's not seriously bugged I'd argue that it's acceptable. I'm looking forward to trying it even though it will probably cost me a few days on my Argent Tournament grind.
