May 21st 2010 5:32PM I love how some of the posters are defending the scam on the basis that 'Not being careful' causes the problem. Could you imagine if they tried using that logic in real life?
"Yes your honor, but if she didn't leave her drink unattended, I wouldn't have been able to *slip* the rohypnol in there. I can't be held responsible for profiting off of her carelessness!"
May 21st 2010 10:50AM Thanks for the information! I now want that BRD shirt and lookie here.. I also have an item that ports me to the grim guzzler. Excellent.
May 18th 2010 1:28PM It's the magic misdirect button, Jiffah. Granted, if you're taking care of yourself, that's fine, but if we see a mob or two headed your way, and our misdirect is up, you don't have to run anywhere and all of the threat goes directly back to the tank meaning we won't grab aggro. Same thing with the ice trap. So, I suppose blizzard appointed us the healer protectors because to my knowledge no other class has protective abilities that don't involve peeling the mobs.
May 18th 2010 1:23PM Yeah, I used to do this a lot too until I installed power auras and set one up to remind me. Very helpful!
May 18th 2010 10:10AM All I can think of is the south park episode when Japan is taking over the world with their bomb pearl harbor game. "Tiiiiiiiny"
May 18th 2010 10:08AM I'm completely surprised no one mentioned using misdirect on our focus target. It's the easiest thing on the planet once you have your macro set up. You walk into the pug/raid/whatever, you set your tank as your focus target. Whenever you need to misdirect, you just press the button. /cast [target=focus] misdirect . No clicking.
Apr 30th 2010 4:55PM I think you might have answered your own question. You've never commonly used the AH as a means to sell disenchant mats, so it follows that you wouldn't be upset that something was taken from you.
The vast majority of Enchanters, however, are only able to offset the massive cost of leveling the profession by selling their gathered mats. Now that everyone is getting them for free from doing instances, the main income source of enchanters has been damaged. I don't know about your server but trade chat is only used for trade about 1 lines out of 15 or so on mine. The rest is trolling and people forming groups.
Apr 28th 2010 5:09PM @Magefest: Not quite. I pug heroics as my healer very frequently. I also tank heroics frequently. I also dps heroics frequently. Obviously there are all sorts of situations where one or the other of us could be at fault or incorrect. I honestly think that a lot of the tanks just know that they can get away with more and they use the 15 minute wait queue for dps as a weapon. Oh, and I never said I was the cause of the nerd rage.. or that I even said anything. I'm just making commentary on what I see.
Apr 28th 2010 1:45PM I agree with you. Getting your fishing to 450 deserves something. That right there is a long grind.
Apr 28th 2010 1:44PM Yeah, I'm pretty sure most professions have some nice tidy way to make a profit these days, even if it's not wrapped up with a pretty little bow for you, like the dailies. Leatherworkers are among the least of those who can complain these days. Even though it was comparably difficult to get to 450, once you're there:
Step 1: Show up at auction house and buy a metric ton of borean.
Step 2: Convert borean to heavy borean.
Step 3: Re-list either the heavy or the arctic fur depending on how your AH is.
Step 4: Collect metric ton of gold. (Profit)
And it's not like skinning is a 'hard' profession to level. I mean really. If you had it when you leveled, it basically leveled with you. Enchanters get to be gold-raped by blacksmiths every time you need a rod upgrade, and they need mats for every single point of skill. At least miners, skinners, and herbalists gain money every time they get a skill point. Enchanters lose it. We should be able to decide whether we auto-de and it should be a private decision prior to entering the instance.
