Mar 17th 2012 3:53PM Haha, our top dps/ideas guy in one guild is the guy whose bank and bags are too full of tmog gear to get raid loot. :P
Mar 16th 2012 3:33PM It kinda boggles me when people ask who the 'main tank' is on two-tank fights. If we're swapping on the boss, noone is main tank. If one of us is tanking the boss and the other is tanking adds, then we have a boss tank and an add tank. If it's a one tank fight, it isn't so much that I'm the main tank as that I have a healing off spec and my co-tank has a dps offspec.
I also just totally decided I wanted to tank for our raid one day and started tanking. It did help that I'd seen all the fights that I was to tank first on my main, a healer. And I did do a fair amount of research, practiced in dungeons, watched videos etc. I'm still not as fast at pulling all Shannox's trash as my co-tank, or as good as him generally. But I'm good enough for us to have 7/8 10N DS as a casual guild that can't always field a full raid each week without pugging.
Mar 16th 2012 3:24PM Tell people irl that you are committing to a certain length of playtime before you start? That's what I did when I was raiding on my parents' internet, and surprise surprise, they understood.
Mar 14th 2012 1:05AM Enchanting: We still need all the same enchants at this stage of the expansion as we did at the beginning, but the supply of materials has dropped a TON since noone is doing dungeons for their JP/VP anymore but raiding. There are NO current Essences on the AH most of the time, and I'm not on a dying server either. I have current Crystals coming out my EARS (and hence Shards too, Shatter was a VERY welcome change when it hit). There aren't even any reasonably cheap-to-craft green-quality weapons that I can find, to try to get Essences from.
I also felt kinda useless in that I had access to the materials for the best enchants and tailoring patterns, and had the professions maxed on my main, but my raid never saw any of the patterns drop. What's the point in having and levelling a profession if I have to get someone else with the same profession to make me the things I need?
Mar 12th 2012 2:50PM Thousand needles was painful to play through for me. Water everywhere, that stupid boat they give you to speed things up (that is so big you can't see where you're going)... I only managed to get through it because my boyfriend had done it before me, and told me that you get to see Magatha there. And it still took me forever.
Mar 9th 2012 2:58PM Me too. Since they're taking away ranged weapons for most people in Mists, soon warriors won't be able to do it either at least.
Mar 6th 2012 1:36PM They need a /mew or /meow. Sometimes /purr doesn't quite fit.
Mar 5th 2012 1:38PM This.
Feb 24th 2012 3:46PM No, I have never disenchanted my offset, because I keep my bags tidy.
Feb 23rd 2012 1:35PM Does it work for guild bank tab icons? I will probably get it anyway since I love icons.
