    Hm, I was thinking about the item squishing earlier and had an idea: how about if they just squish the raid loot ilvls but leave the questing power gain alone? Basically make all Vanilla raids give the same level loot as MC, all TBC raids give the same level loot as Kara and all Wrath raids give the same level loot as Naxx 10. I've quickly thrown together a shitty graph of the idea by badly editing the original graph:

    As you can see it's not near as bad as the preliminary squish graph while still getting about 100 ilvl out of the system. The raids would still need to be nerfed a little bit extra if they wanted higher level characters to solo them as well as they can now (maybe retune the 25 man raids to be 10 man raids?) but it wouldn't be as hard to do as when using the proposed graph's ilvls.

    That would probably work fine for this next expansion, but it's a pretty minor stall. Two or three expansions from now, we'd be in the same spot again.

    You realize those mobs are tagless, that is to say if you hit one of them you will get credit for it even if someone else has it tagged, even if they are opposite faction. Can even loot it (they still get to loot too)

    Unless they've changed it recently, no, you need to tag it to get credit.

    You realize this is incorrect.

    Whoever tags it and/or is in the party of who tags it gets the credit. No one else does, period. No, this hasn't changed, no this hasn't been fixed. Yes, you can till loot it if you hit it at all but you won't get credit.

    I've always been able to get kill credit for those mobs just by chucking a single throwing dagger once at one of them that someone else tagged. Even horde players (and I'm ally). Also been able to mine it once they finish looting it. Only thing that one cannot do there is the "wolf howl" thing if it wasn't your group's tag, but plenty of low hp mobs elsewhere for that one.

    You realize I'm talking about the rare achievement mobs right? Not the general mobs you need for the quest?

    Because those, yes, you can get credit for. I don't care about those. The rare mobs you absolutely, under no uncertain terms, do not get credit if you are not the tagger or in the party of the tagger. This isn't even something that is debatable.

    I like to think fishing is why most video players have an always on top option.

    Also, why I don't fish.

    What class are you? I was able to solo most of the rare mobs w/ my shitty-geared druid + npcs from the daily. It was tricky in some cases but doable.

    Keep in mind if you see one up, the next one will spawn within a few minutes of it dying. All four should spawn in order pretty quickly (assuming one wasn't killed in the chain before you got there)

    And yes, it's bullshit that you don't get credit for helping kill the mob. If they can do it with quests, they can do it with fucking achievements...

    As I remember it, the best place for vendorfish if the central lake in Zangremarsh, fishing out of the steam pump flotsam.

    As for the rat, it refused to be fished up for me. Finally got it in a call to arms bag. Still don't have a damn turtle.

    Historically, I'm sure I've gotten dozens of them; fishing for Mr. Pinchy, barrels of fish from the Shatt cooking daily and the Shatt fishing daily.

    This weekend however absolutely nothing. I fished up two Mr. Pinchies! So much /headdesk.

    And the snowflakes are already spasming over it, how it should be "exclusive". Man, fuck that. I spent the better part of a -year- pugging my entire Tier 0 set back in Vanilla and I'm more than fine with seeing others have it (especially considering that it's not available as a drop any longer).

    Yes it keeps scaling. And who knows :P I do know I tried to do an Ulduar 25 pug last week and they actually wiped on it. I still can't believe it (well, I *can* but my god)

    I've just come back after leaving right after Cata launch. Now that I'm locked in for 12 months I want to get a character to 85, but my old main is uh, kinda defunct.

    See, I used to play a Death Knight, but I did that because I loved how Death Knight DPS used to function. I liked that you were essentially GCD capped at all times, and if you missed even one part of your rotation it would all fall apart. I liked that I was always pressing a button no matter what.

    The new rune system kinda ruined that. Now I spend a lot of time just sitting there, staring into space when my ADHD demands I be pressing more buttons.

    So what other classes have that same level of action required? It doesn't have be a super high skill level, either. I just want to have something to do other than stare at skills cooling down and hope for procs.

    Play Frost. Get lot's of haste.

    Problem solved! Still pretty GCD capped. Unholy is also very hectic, with a more demanding rotation. You may enjoy a Rogue.

    I solo'd FL in 346/359 gear a while back and it was pretty painless. Though, we were two-manning it easily in 232/245 gear, so not sure how much that really says about the scaling.

    I'm quite surprised at just how much of a difference Transmog has made on individuality even on the PTR. I expected to see tons of Judgement and Bloodfang running around but that's really not the case. Some people are putting some pretty creative outfits together and it looks nice. Best of all, you're not staring at 30 clones of yourself any longer. Really can't wait for 4.3.

    You know I actually spent all weekend farming vanilla greens on my hunter :P There are some pretty damn good looking sets. Between the AH and flying around with SilverDragon trying to find rares, it was actually kind of fun to build them up :P Though my hunter is starting to run out of space.. may have to mail em to an alt in the mean time :P

    P.S. - if anyone is interested, I stumbled on kind of a neat addon:
    http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/mogit

    Not sure happy with the interface, but the nice thing about it is you can browse gear pretty nicely with it (six pieces at a time, not sure if that is configurable). You can even search by color which is kind of amazing to me. I believe it also lists where each item is available, and it will tell you about look-alikes.

    Like I said, interface is a little wonky. You can only seem to browse one slot at a time (unless I'm missing something), though you can start building sets which I haven't messed with, but presumably this is how you'd see the whole outfit. Didn't see anyway to find, say, all Bloodfang gear or something.

    Yup, 2H frost and Unholy when you get a lot of haste are very button mashy. Arguably more so than they were in WotLK since you're on a 1 second GCD instead of 1.5.

    He wants "pressing more buttons" and less/no "time just sitting there," so a rogue is pretty much the opposite of what he should be playing. Rogues definitely have downtime waiting for energy.


    Unrelated, but I should probably look into getting my JCs to 525 skill soon. They're both at the 510 to 515 region since the current 525 recipes are useless and there's been no reason to push for it with the crappy fire prism recipe or spamming meta gems. I know we're a couple weeks to a month away from 4.3, but I should probably be ready to learn the epic gem cuts as soon as the patch hits. Even though epic gems are apparently going to be super rare.

    I'll still buy them all right away on my druid anyway, since he'll have over 250 JC tokens before the patch hits. It's a shame he's on a dying horde server, so the market for them is probably going to be pretty small.

    Yes, it's entirely possible to solo Flame Leviathan. It's a bit tricky since it involves setting up the vehicles properly and not getting killed when you switch(have to get the timing right) but it can be done.

    Nice, yeah I've seen that addon before. I think WoW Insider did a piece on it, looked interesting.

    I've actually been fairly fortunate lately in collecting a lot of my old gear. I'm 6/8 Bloodfang (missing chest and shoulders), 2/5 Deathmantle and 7/8 Slayer's. The rest of the tiers are still in my bank, so thank goodness for the Void Storage thing.

    I wonder if Conquerer or Protector is going to be the unlucky set token to get Monks added to it.

    I selfishly wish they'd do an arbitrary reassignment of the classes on each token since at least 60% of our raids are fucking Vanquisher classes.

    They gonna have to redo tokens I would think. The current ones are fairly well balanced but adding another three spec class to one of them wouldn't be very cool.

    What happened when they added DKs? I barely raided in TBC (just a few annoying Karazhan PUGs was enough pain for me) so I don't really know what the token setup was pre-DK. I didn't pay attention to them as I was just in it for the badges. Was Vanq just druid/mage/rogue back then?
