Apr 27th 2010 9:47AM Have you seen my Dolly? I love that entire quest chain. I have done it on every single toon that has ever reached the 50's. It is one of my game benchmarks, like reaching a level to get a mount, or getting high enough to quest in Outland/Northrend. The story is just so damned sad, and like todays Breakfast Topic about where the epic feel went in game.... this quest chain was just epic to me. It was the very first time in the game as I was levelng that I remember feeling like I wasn't really playing a game, but I was guy/cat/bear/moonkin thingy, who had gotten mixed up in this Greek tragedy, and I somehow felt responsible for making sure I could help bring these troubled spirits some peace in the afterlife. For the first time in the game, it just felt so... well... WOW!!!

They form the Brotherhood of the Bracelet. Along the way they're trailed by a murloc named Gottum, who's obsessed with the bracelet, and nine bracelet bogeymen. It could be a three parter, called 'Ruler of the Bracelet'. The first part would be called 'The Brotherhood of the Bracelet', followed by 'A Couple of Towers', with a climactic ending called 'Hey, Look, the King's Back!'"
Aug 19th 2009 1:16PM I'm a resto druid and enchanter. With regular TOC being such a farmable event, I get invited more to shard than to heal. It takes about 20 minutes from boss kill to boss kill and two hours of farming it will net a group about six abyss crystals each.
I find the best sharding practice to simply run with a regular group. BUT if you have to pug something I find it best to offer to shard and offer to roll for shards at the end. The best advice here is to simply discuss it with the group for two minutes before. I've had people who really needed dust and have asked the group if they could take the greens and have me DE it. Most of the time people are pretty cool about it.
If I had to standardize the sharding process I would say to find out if there is an enchanter. If there is, then enchanter greeds everything, and you only Need if it is an upgrade to a main or off set. Unless you have a new 80 running, you won't have to many "Needs" in the group. At the end, depending on what the enchanter has, the enchanter sets the roll peramiters. ie.. Last nights TOC farm netted three stacks of six abyss crystals, and two stacks of five. Three people Needed gear. That left two of us getting a 6 Stack, and the three than needed gear rolling for the other 6 Stack and the last two getting a 5 Stack. It was the farest option I could come up with and everyone went home happy.
