Feb 26th 2012 11:25AM Mine was the blackskull shield while in the sunken temple. I was on my rogue and my guild leader gave it to me bc I was very new to the game. I sold it for 400 gold and I thought that made me rich >.>
Feb 20th 2012 1:28PM My favorite noob memory was in atal'hakkar. I had been playing a few months and my new best friend and our guild leader decided to take me through the entire instance. I was still very new by this point and all instances were something I hardly understood and they were things that intimidated me. The three of us were on vent and they were walking me through the entire process of the complex boss order and some kind of ritual where we had to flip these switches in a star pattern. I had no clue I just followed the tank and tried to stay alive. I scored some loot so I was stoked. We cleared the whole place, I got the cheeve, all was well. The guild leader says "hey, do you wanna get the hidden boss while we are here?" Of course I did! "All you have to do is jump down the pit in the center of this room." And with blind faith in my guild leader I jumped down the pit of refuse to confront the hidden boss......the floor boss of atal'hakkar. I died. They laughed about it for a week.
I missed the jump in WC, they came and got me and I tried again. I missed it three times before I managed to do it. We even did a full clear. (no one wanted to do a full clear at the time)
Feb 13th 2012 1:05PM Thank you for writing this article Anne. This is easily one of the most thoughtful and well written articles from anyone on wowinsider that I've read. It's a subject that I feel nearly every person that plays wow can relate to on some level.
It's hard for my mother and sisters to understand what I mean when I tell them that when I'm raiding/playing a game with nine other people. They don't understand that there is no pause button. They don't understand that I can't just walk away anytime they need something. When I raided I would let them know well in advance when I wouldn't be available and that from x to y not to bother me unless it was an emergency. (Running out of chips and needing me to go get more is NOT an emergency) They have gotten better after I explained that me and my group of friends had to schedule this raid and that it would be very rude to waste of undermine the time commitment by frequently having to leave or asking them to wait. By saying it was more like a business meeting than a game it helped solve a lot of issues. They still ask me anytime that I play if I have "beaten the game" or if I'm "winning" normally I say that you can't beat the game and that winning is relative....now I just say yes to all. They are very much ok with my hobby and don't think I'm one of those "crazy internet addicts". I work full time and go to college full time so my game time has been diminished as of late but I still get questions from my family every so often and I just nod my head, tell them yes, and thank them for asking.
Feb 8th 2012 1:11PM I agree that tanks need to establish threat before the first blow is struck. The ranged dps need to learn this skill too. Its rather difficult to hit anything when you have arrows and magic blowing crap up before you can reach it. Good luck getting some "gogogogogo" types of dps to wait three seconds before starting the fireworks.
Jan 28th 2012 12:39PM I was tanking Well of Eternity on my death knight. We had a healer that was having to heal their priesty butt off because dps were standing in bad stuff, not interrupting, not CCing etc. My main is a rogue so I know what the dps are expected to do. I wasn't too worried because is was a bit overgeared for the instance thanks to the raid finder. The hunter in the group was way too cocky. They kept pulling before me (albiet with misdirection) and they kept posting recount to brag about their dps. I didn't say anything until the hunter died in the felflames at the first boss. The hunter yells "kick the healer". The healer says "I can't heal stupid". We end up moving on with little trouble, barring no CC on the way to the second boss. The third boss things got ugly. Dps had been whining about the healer the whole way. The healer pst me and said it wasn't her fault no one clicks the lightwell but the tank and that they won't move out of bad stuff. We almost kill the general and tyrande gets overhwlemed. None of the dps get the debilitators. Not one of them. I yell out to kill them while I'm frantically mashing buttons. None of them do. I run to the healer trying to keep them safe while keeping all the adds on me. The healer dies before and can get to her. So I keep aggro on all the adds while the dps plugs away at the general and I kill the debilitators. I throw the healer a brez when the general dies while the dps cry some more bc they got no heals (bc they were dead). We completed the run and the dps say "lolz how did we survive that?" They respond with "dps bro crazy dps. Tank and healer were garbage but we made it" they all dropped after that. Me and the healer spent and hour raging about it and being speechless at the same time. Tanking and healing are often thankless jobs, and that is my biggest pet peeve
