Aug 31st 2011 9:23PM I am not trying to be a Prima Donna or anything but I had 3 raid tanks in Wrath, a Druid, DK, and my love of all my toons my Paladin. Right after they released the patch, I honestly felt as if I had bought my toons off of Ebay. I am the GM of a pretty decent sized guild and I hear many others upset over all the relearning we have to do with each new "big patch". If my guild hadn't of needed me to keep tanking, I truly would have just put away my Pally. I hate my DK now, I liked my frost spec! My bear is the only one that is even close to the same. The pally is the one that I have my 126 mounts on and all my achievements but I find myself playing my Hunter most often these days unless we are raiding then I grab my pally out. I no longer just Q up for randoms because of the tank shortage and hoping to help out a bit....Our guild is probably a few older folks than most and all of these changes really takes it toll on some peeps. A few of our guys are playing RIFT and a few others have moved on to Diablo and of course we all keep in touch even if we are not playing and truthfully many of us are looking to play a different game together just because of all the changes that a few peeps want. If this keeps up there will be an all time low player base, many of us hang in there hoping that Blizz will finally see that all the changes are what is wrong.
Aug 31st 2011 6:42PM I am sick of all the changes, 1 less person for them to worry about.... The more they change it, the more peeps are leaving when do these guys get a damn clue! Me and my 2 accounts are saying adios!
Jun 30th 2010 12:11PM Yes, and a Druid and a Mage :-)
Jun 29th 2010 1:00PM We actually have a 79 year old retired judge in our guild Imprisoned Madness of Exodar. That man keeps up his dps and stays out of fire and is also very sharp witted. Never under estimate the older generation!
Apr 29th 2010 5:55PM I think a good compremise would be to have the 10 man and 20 man raid instead of the 25 we have now. Then as for loot, maybe 1 item in 10 man and 2 items in 20 man. It would be feasible for 2 10 mans to then work on a 20 man together since we have dual spec now. Sharing the lockout will almost ruin the raiding experience for me and I see many guilds breaking apart if they go ahead with that plan..... sigh
I am the GM of a pretty good sized guild that has just recently started raiding since wotlk came out and most of us agree that sharing the lockout would ruin the larger raiding groups completely. We have issues getting all 25 together now but 20 should be easy enough especially if we was to team up with another 10 man group.
Apr 23rd 2010 10:56PM I like my Ony mount best because only me and 1 hordie have it so far on our server :-) Plus it goes 310! :-)
Apr 19th 2010 2:34PM I also forgot to mention that the healer the trinket was reserved for has helped anyone who needed it all along and did a lot of wiping in there while we learned the fights. so generally everyone thought he deserved it!
Apr 19th 2010 2:28PM In our guild, before the run even starts it is not unheard of to us for me to announce that a certain drop is reserved for so and so because he deserves it. It is not hard to get a raid group together and those who do not agree to let so and so have that item do not have to attend. An example was the trinket from Ulduar "Eye of the Broodmother". Everyone who went into that 10 man knew that it was reserved for a certain pally healer. But then again our guild is surprisingly unselfish about loot. It is not unheard of for someone to pass on a 245 if they have a 232 and the other roller is in a 219...
Also as the loot master it would have just gone into his bags with a big grats on vent. There would have been no roll at all.
Mar 28th 2010 3:31PM I usually hit greed and put it in the guild bank. If no one takes it form there after a while, it gets turned into a shard to gear up our new 80's or even alts.
Mar 16th 2010 3:40PM We have a 78 year old man and his cousin who is a year or 2 younger both playing on Exodar.
