Feb 4th 2010 8:10AM Sadly, many players in top end raiding guilds have this ego problem. It might stem from self-esteem issues.
Feb 4th 2010 8:09AM At the risk of offending those who disagree with me, ( someone being offended cause I disagree with them *shocking*) It is very doubtful that Ensidia was exploiting this fight intentionally.
As many other have said and will continue to say, saronite bombs are part of an engineers dps rotation. Ensidia definitely noticed something was wrong with the encounter since the platform was growing back but that is Blizzard's problem. I highly doubt they could have pinpointed the bug to saronite bombs and purposely tried to exploit this. They didn't have any previous exposure to this fight except in 10man.
Had Blizzard not been monitoring Ensidia's combat then you can certainly bet this bug would have been "exploited" by other guilds unknowingly.
Jan 31st 2010 12:44PM @Joey- I don't know how I want to respond exactly so I'll play devils advocate.
Group's fault: Perhaps it's because I'm a very cynical person but those are the exact reactions I would expect from a WoW player. And it is probably these type of reactions that scares new players from asking for help when needed because nobody wants to be that guy who doesn't know what to do.
Player's fault: But on the other hand, new players can easily familiarize themselves with content they have not had the pleasure to enjoy through various mediums. Wowwiki, Wowhead, and Youtube are all great sites where one could merely search for an instance and quickly learn about its boss encounters. There's just no harm in taking a few minutes to read up on those instances you never had a chance to do. You will be happier for being prepared. The group will be happy for having such a great player, yourself, in their party. Most boss mechanics are reading comprehension 101 exams by yours truly, Blizzard. We all want to pass our exams, right?
Jan 31st 2010 5:05AM To save yourself a heartache, tell the group beforehand that you need the item but can't roll "need" on it. Hopefully they are a goodhearted and understanding.

Jan 15th 2010 11:59PM I cannot wait to see what they have in store for Moonkins in Cataclysm. I honestly am enthused.
Also no one should be against bigger backpacks.

Jul 7th 2009 4:35PM A disclaimer I need to place at the start to prevent people from misunderstanding my stance on the issue: I don't agree with any type of exploiting and do not side with either Ensidia or Exodus.
A rational person can agree that Exodus deserved their temporary ban and could have been more mature about the entire situation.
I'm sure Ensidia's smugness is fortified by this event. (Yes this could be a jab at Ensidia because I hate elitists and there is no doubt that Ensidia contains some but I do apologize to the more humble players of Ensidia.)
Before you try to blurt out your personal facts perhaps you should confirm whether or not players have been banned for using spellsteal "creatively."
Because if you did indeed do a little research then you would find that players have been banned for exploiting spellsteal within Naxxramas: the bone shield stolen from the Death Knights in the Military quarter.
Your example is also incorrect. the fire resist buff was given by the mob through mind control. Spell Steal did not exist in Classic WoW.
Your credibility can not be trusted for several reasons.
You are either the Eoy of Ensidia and will obviously defend them regardless of the truth.
You are not the Eoy of Ensidia and can not have any merit since you have no proof.
Herein lies the dilemma that someone will most certainly point out. But if neither a player of Ensida nor a player outside of Ensidia can be trusted with telling the truth, how can we know the truth? That is exactly why the only way to know the truth is through proof such as video evidence. Words are empty and here this is very true. Why would Ensidia lie? The top leading guild would never lie to the masses, right? By lying, they defend their titles and no one is the wiser.
The only people who know exactly how they did the fights are their own players and the blizzard reps that were most likely watching them in game. And it will remain this way for the end of WoW.
In the end I wonder why I spent time writing this post but I guess I want to promote curiosity.
