Soloing can be epic, too

Though everyone talks about it a lot, raiding or even grouping isn't the only way to achieve something in the World of Warcraft. There's something for everyone.

While I do raid, there's a lot of solo content that I really feel proud of completing. At the top of my list is mastering the Shartuul's Transporter event. For quite awhile it would just stomp me into the ground, until one day I found my groove and was able to get through to the end. It took a handful of the Charged Crystal Focuses(foci?) for the 'special' abilities, but I did it. From there, I did the event as often as I could, until I could get through it without using any Foci. Now? Easy as pie. The event is basically free potions and potential epics for me now. Assuming it doesn't bug out. Spawn, you stupid eyeball! Spawn!

I've also been working on rep for a Wintersaber, but even after the buffs to reputation gains on that grind, I have a hard time staying interested. I've been doing it in little bit and pieces, and I really look forward to when I finally get a pink kitty.

So I'm curious, what are your solo accomplishments? That little(or big) thing you met head on and mastered on your own?

Cross-Faction looting bug on Shartuul event

[File this under
Straight from the realm of "you have to be kidding me" comes this post from the General Forums. In it, the poster Millock warns us of an extremely problematic bug -- cross-faction looting. Also, just in time for another Monday workday, the thread highlights some really charming behaviour involving stealing taps on a Boss while mid-event, and more than fulfills the General Forums drama quotient for the day.

According to Millock (Horde), he was working his way through the Shartuul's Transporter event, got to the end, spawned Shartuul, and before he could get the tap on him, two Alliance Players decided to charge in and take the tap from him. This was after they sat and watched Millock work his way through the event at a distance. Why? Because he's Horde, and it's a PvP server, of course! What is troubling is that after the two Alliance players died, Shartuul's nameplate reverted to colored (untapped) at which point Millock got what he considered his own tap back, killed him, and went to loot his item. However, apparently there is some bug in the event whereby both the two Alliance players and the one Horde player were all able to roll on the loot from Shartuul as if they were in the same party, despite being of completely different factions that shouldn't ever see each others loot windows. Millock rolled need, the other two did as well, and despite his kill, and all his work up to and including killing Shartuul, he lost the item to the two Alliance players.
