The Queue: Live, from Hollywood, it's the Fox Van Allen show {WoW}

Mar 4th 2012 2:36PM So speaking of item squish, will older raids gain difficulty or relevance with this type of change? Or will older content be nerfed accordingly to retain a proportionate level of difficulty between expansions?

Drama Mamas: Keep it secret. Keep it safe. {WoW}

Sep 17th 2010 1:22PM I like what the drama buster says: Always get as many details (esp. guildy perspectives) as possible.

I had the unfortunate experience of running a Ony 25 PUG where loot rules were specifically stated multiple times at the beginning with all party members present. After downing the infamous wyrm, loot was distributed as stated in the original rules. The problem occurred when the second piece was won by the the same person who won the first piece, so the loot went to second highest roll (as per the rules). The bag was won accordingly, however, the sack of jewels was rolled on by the winner of the bag and my roll was second highest. Since the rules I stated were 1 loot per person the jewels went to me, fairly.

Well, since the winner of the bag did not like this turn of events he went on and on and on QQ like I have never seen. Finally I said fine give me the bag and ill give you the sack of jewels. Exchange went down and I put said individual on ignore as to not receive a tell the next time I run a RAID.

The next day I log in to find that I was removed from my guild. Apparently the QQ'er went on a huge rant in trade chat how I ninja'd Onyxia loot. My guild leader removed me from the guild without even getting my side of the story! To top it all off a guildy was in the run with me, who didn't pay attention to the details of the situation and said: "Ya I guess that happened" which sealed my fate.

Now after it all went down the GM decided to ask me what happened, I explained, he apologized and offered me a re-invite. But the damage was done, I was extremely let down and said thanks but no thanks and moved on.

So you see a major incident could have been avoided if I was at least consulted on the matter before action was taken. They lost a "valuable" (their words) holy paly and I was out on the streets.

My apologies for TL:DR's but i wanted to share my anecdote. Thx!

Offspec gear and Cataclysm raiding {WoW}

May 9th 2010 4:51PM Maybe Blizzard will make most drops like that purchasable with the new points.

You never know.
