Drama Mamas: Choosing between raiding and friendships {WoW}

Feb 6th 2012 10:41PM I can completely understand where they are coming from. I raided with friends during wrath and eventually got to 11/12 on heroic 25 man icc and assumed that things would keep going like that during cata. Within a couple months of Cata the guild I was in almost completely fell apart so I joined a new guild with a few IRL friends. I spent months there pretty much doing nothing aside from some random bgs and dungeons.

Then one day I met someone from my server in a bg where we carried are team and got to talking and moved my toons over there where I was able to do rated bgs almost nightly and soon joined the 10 man raid team during FL where we made a lot of progress in a short time.

Then fall semester started and we lost a tank and 2 healers and many great rbg players. After lots of recruiting we recovered and then Star Wars came out and we lost most of the raid team and some more good rbgers. Since then I've only been in an occasional raid that pugs a few spots where I usually outperform everyone in that raid.

What I've come to notice is I don't want to play Star Wars without my RL friends and I don't want to leave my guild as there would likely be no way for me to do rated battlegrounds again if I did. The LFR helped a few weeks but ultimately the experience is shallow. I don't feel excited to kill bosses in there.

I blame most of these issues on the way raid lockouts have worked since Cata was released since I used to raid a 10 and 25 man version of many raids weekly and now have less content to do and can only do it once.

Ol' Grumpy and the specter of pointless elitism {WoW}

Feb 6th 2012 8:20PM Before the fight the tank (who was in the same guild) explained to the mage what they needed to do. The tank had also mentioned they they were using their vent to explain fights to his 2 friends.

Darkmoon Faire achievement progress reset but will be saved in the future {WoW}

Feb 6th 2012 12:59AM This is lame. I opened a ticket about this the other day but I just read this now.

The thing that gets me is that I only had one item left for both of the achievements and I had some gold saved up and I bought a couple of the ones I needed and spent quite a bit. Great to see that was for naught.

Feb 2nd 2012 8:24PM I think that can also be attributed as Blizzards fault. Especially when people don't know the content. Blizz has people so accustomed to not standing in anything they think its bad to stand on a flarecore or the swirls on Blackhorn.

Feb 2nd 2012 8:21PM I was doing End TIme last week on my frost DK when I got matched up with a 3 from my server I didn't know as well as a healer from another server.

The tank was very capable as was the healer but the other two dps, a mage and a hunter were abysmal.

There was not one pull or boss in the dungeon where I did less then 55% of the dps and ended up at about 69% overall for the dungeon. But I didn't toot my horn. We cleared the content. The tank was 2nd on dps. There were a few wipes but big deal.

Now on the same hand please listen to the instructions from those that know what to do. During the Murozand fight we asked the mage to pop hero at the start and after each hourglass. The mage never popped hero during any of the phases and ended up doing like 2k and then started cussing out the healer when asked why they never popped hero.

So long story short you can beat morozand with two dps below 10k and 1 below 3 and respect goes both ways.

Is my shadow priest's DPS high enough? {WoW}

Feb 1st 2012 9:34PM You can instantly raise it by making a friend with a warlock who will dark intent you.

Just keep playing. Eventually she will get better as she messes around and figures out how to do things efficiently. As long as you are having fun dont worry about anything.

Lichborne: 5 common death knight mistakes {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 9:13PM Remember to use Army before fighting a raid boss as well. Start casting about 6-7 seconds before pull to maximize your dps output. The only other acceptable time to cast it during a raid boss is between phases when there is nothing to dps. Casting army while you could be dpsing always results in a dps loss.

But please remember to use it. There are so many that never use it.

Lichborne: 2011 in review for death knights {WoW}

Jan 15th 2012 12:17PM I'm still hating the nerf to death strike that happened to frost dks. In pvp that gives a lot less survivability in arenas for frost dks which are now by far the squishiest class in arenas. See a frost DK, kill it first.

Dec 31st 2011 5:35PM If he was in the 390 honor gear it would have been more then enough for dps in there. PVP gear can do just fine in there if you have the latest honor gear.

Grear Roll question: If I am wearing gear, like the current tier gloves, and the token drops again.... why can I still roll need on it?

Loot roll should remove the need option if you are currently wearing the gear from that token. This would remove a lot of issue with spreading out gear in LFR and current raids.[/quote] (I don't know how to do quotes on here if you even can).

This would solve a lot of gear issues in LFR but at the same time what if I also need the gloves for a different spec. For exampleIf I go in as DPS on my DK and gloves drop I'm going to what those for my tanking spec as well.

That is a double edged sword and if all they were going to do is see if you already have the gear piece equipped or in your bags then wouldn't people just leave it in there bank?
