Totem Talk: Enhancement shaman changes in patch 4.3 {WoW}

Oct 11th 2011 3:27PM I mostly get asked (in RoZ guild runs) why my DPS on enhancement is so variable. When I get a good string of maelstrom procs it jumps quite a bit, but a long run without procs for that and windfury is a significant difference. Add in the oddity of the current AoE rotation and some fights I top the charts, others I'm dead last. I don't mind it, because its a nice fluid rotation to keep up, but I am definitely looking forward to the changes to help even things out some.

(Not that I ever get to raid outside my resto spec, of course. I'll miss the easy interrupts there.)

Breakfast Topic: Behavior unbecoming a player {WoW}

Oh, I'm inclined to agree, but the GM never shows much interest in that stuff, sadly. As a whole the guild is more concerned with raiding than being nice, and the smallest comfort at least is that people usually go to great lengths to not PUG members of raids and dungeons both. This is a largish guild, 6 active 10man groups and 3 more forming, and I mostly am just thankful for the people in my particular group. I refuse to do anything with the subgroup of folks who are dicks like that these days, even though it means I can only raid 2 nights a week.

I think its the most hardcore segment of our raiders who are the worst at the bad behaviour, and of course they're the most desired for a raiding guild. My group is laid back and chill about stuff, and the couple 'hardcore' raiders we have are also nice (unless they see you standing in fire, of course). If I wasnt such a wallflower I'd consider trying to just leave and take the group with me, but I had my time as a GM in another MMO and really don't want to step into that role anymore.

Apr 29th 2011 8:45AM I got that same situation last week, except I was the heals to a 3dps/tank guild group from another server. After taking over 5 minutes to kill the first trash pull in heroic throne of tides, I was pretty annoyed. Taking 15 minutes just to get to the top of the elevator was it. I politely told them their dps was too low, and the tank wasnt keeping aggro even off that (I guess the tank counted as dps really, since he was higher than the mage and warrior dps combined, and he was still under 10k), and I was leaving after the current mobs died.

They then spent several minutes trying to let the mobs in that pull kill me, while constantly harassing and insulting me. Being a raid-geared healer, I stubbornly refused to die (it was just the weak mob spam at hall at top of elevator) until they got bored and killed the mobs, and I left. I fail to see how that kind of behaviour is in any way productive for them, since I could have easily (and gleefully) left them all to die mid-fight, but instead tried to be nice despite their sheer levels of suck. After that I just logged off for the evening, and they got a different random healer to abuse.

Yeah... 4 person guild groups never work well. I've even seen certain members of my own guild harass and eventually votekick the 5th person just to invite a guildy (thankfully none of them were folks from my raid group or people I interact with much). The time wasted trying to get that person to drop could've been spent finishing most of the dungeon, and we could've done a 2nd run with the 5th guildy afterwards, but noooo....

Breakfast Topic: How do you choose your ride? {WoW}

Apr 28th 2011 8:45AM I use my touring rocket often for the air-ground-water transitions on my lock. Otherwise if i want to be showy I use his violet protodrake, or the korkron annihilator.

Druid is always just flight form or the guild mount, havent collected any other mounts on him, and mage uses flying carpets to signify he's a tailor. I keep meaning to write a macro that rotates my mounts more to show off my stable, but I havent gotten around to it still.

Win a Razer Nostromo game keypad from WoW Insider {WoW}

Apr 26th 2011 12:47PM Ooh, nifty. Much nicer than the old game keypad I've got right now.

Mar 22nd 2011 2:45PM I've got Datastore stuff from Altoholic as well, and as I noted in my reply earlier, I had independently configured the stuff Basil talks about in this post last night while trying to solve my problem. My Datastore is aware of the existence of the glyphs on the other character (I can see them listed in Bags, Bank, AH, Mail, etc via Altoholic) but it still insists on trying to restock them locally if they're not in my Inscriptionist's local inventory/AH.

I also tried swapping from Datastore to the other database (Gathering IIRC) and same (lack of) result.

I'm really thinking its a glitch and/or undeveloped feature in TSM at this point, given the in-development nature of the addon.

Mar 22nd 2011 12:18PM Yeah, my inscription went from moderately profitable to insanely so. I managed to break thru with a critical mass of glyphs that I'd been overlooking, and drove that profit into a darkmoon card business.

I need to look at getting my JC up and running in TSM now as well. But I've got to fix this issue first, as my JC toon is also my main raider, and doesn't have inventory to hold lots of gems in addition to both feral and resto gear.

Last night I tried configuring which characters it could look at, and which guilds, as described in this article, and the issue still persisted. It seems like those settings are currently only looking at materials for crafting, not the finished goods.
