Jan 26th 2012 9:51AM So I was in regular Stonecore the other day, healing on my druid. We get an 85 blood dk tank and the rest 82s/83s - a hunter, warlock, and mage I believe. I figure it'll be a nice fast run.
Well then we down Corborous, and he drops the nice Agi trinket. The tank (blood DK) and the hunter both need. The tank wins. Having used that trinket myself on my hunter main, I casually comment that it's a 'nice hunter trinket.'
The warlock proceeded to take that comment and RUN with it. He insisted that the tank give it to the hunter. The tank agreed, but said he'd do so 'later.' The warlock then accused the tank of being a ninja, saying he wouldn't give it to the hunter, because he should be giving it to the hunter now to increase their dps, so on and so forth. I hadn't said anything more since my initial comment, and the hunter occasionally piped up to go "it's fine," but the warlock would NOT let it drop. The tank eventually said he wasn't going to give the trinket to the hunter simply because the warlock was calling him a ninja.
We got to the final boss and the tank was so pissed off at the warlock by that point that he pulled the adds for the boss with his ghoul, then dismissed the ghoul. Issue: healing aggro. I think he was trying to get the lock or the hunter, but either way, he got me.
Once the adds were gone, I was all set to just muscle through the boss with the same tank, but the group decided to /votekick him. It took us 15 minutes to find another tank. Longer than the rest of the dungeon had taken, even with a whining warlock. *sigh*
Jun 30th 2011 10:36AM Ignoring the fact that I only only quest in the undead areas of Azeroth in a group that can take my mind what exactly I'm doing and killing (because I'm a horror wuss - and yes, ICC made me shudder if I thought about it too much):
The northern ocean off Icecrown. Especially around the Scarlet Onslaught base up there. Not being able to see the bottom of the ocean + sharks = OMFG GET ME OUT OF HERE. I actually hearthed out of there and logged off when it first hit me. I later tried to go back, but got no farther than hovering above the water before I took off for the tourney ground. *shudder*
Jun 7th 2011 9:44AM Somewhat predictable, but I'd like a bow...stuck to the ceiling of some tunnel. It has to look exactly like the best bow available (or maybe Thori'dal) and it would be clickable...only to have a box pop up saying that you can't get at the bow because it won't 'drop'.
That would pretty much immortalize my luck with weapon drops, and my hunter main.
Mar 18th 2011 11:32AM Had a similar one in LK....we were in ToC and had picked up a PUG shaman healer. We're just about to start the beasts and he goes "Shit, gotta go, police are here. RL knows why!"
Turns out he broke a restraining order, and had warned the RL ahead of time that he might have to go. We still tell that story in our raid when we have new members or PUGs go afk. Especially if they're shamans. XD
Feb 9th 2011 12:47PM Out-ranging shatter is no issue, but eating the paralyze damage from having it tick off is not fun. We don't get stacks of bleed, sadly. :(
Feb 9th 2011 11:49AM Here's a question: Is there any hunter ability that will reflect on Ozruk to break us out of paralyze? I've tried to find one, but so far no luck - it seems strange that Blizzard would give every class except one a mechanic to break out...unless they just decided hunters are awesome enough as it is. :P
Jan 6th 2011 8:22AM For me, it happened late in Wrath, when my raid's best DK dps accused me of using distracting shot to get the bite on Blood Queen. I was at first insulted, and then found myself giggling hysterically. We used to have a saying in our raid group - if you could beat our best DK dps, you were finally doing enough dps. It was nigh impossible, but on Blood Queen that night...I did it. And I did it consistently from then on, and not just on that fight. Somewhere, somehow, between my 10man heroics and my 25man regulars...I'd passed him.
Still beating him now, too...but Survival hunters are currently very, very, VERY broken. *giggles*
Dec 13th 2010 9:03AM That, sir, was brilliant. If Needle-encrusted scorpion hadn't been at the end of the instance, that would have been such a perfect revenge for all those ret pallies that rolled on it...
Dec 13th 2010 9:00AM One of my most surprisingly good times, also came out of one of my worst. I was running H PoS on my barely-geared resto-shaman, who I was still learning how to play, and had a horrific tank and dps. One of the dps eventually dropped, we got a new one. The new one was incredibly competent, but unfortunately, could not make up for the rest. We wiped several times on the tunnels, until I finally gave up and left the group. I re-queued, and ended up getting the same group, but with the tank and one of the original dps replaced. The replacement dps from before I left saw me and immediately cheered, informed me they had found a better tank - who happened to be from their guild and server - and that I should be able to actually heal now. Which I did, with no further wipes. It was awesome.
Dec 13th 2010 8:39AM I've had the opposite effect, actually - my fiance, who started playing after me, is often in my shadow while playing. Which is hilarious, since he's a tankadin and I'm a hunter. Most of our guilds haven't promoted him to officer just because I am an officer, though. So far they've just taken for granted that he knows what I know, and as long as he doesn't go spreading that around, that's fine. Of course, they inevitably realize that half my good ideas come from him and promote him anyways.
