    Get a guild invite as soon as you can. Not because you can help the guild level but because the guild can help you level. We hit the guild exp cap every day and have unlocked a lot of perks that can help leveling -- mount speed, experience gain, reputation gain, and others.

    If you play a game and then are able to spend pages debating with someone on the actions of a faction within that game you probably just played a pretty sweet game.

    When you log on Dourin just do a '/who Beasts' and ask any of them to point you to an officer. Any one of our officers are most likely online and they can toss you an invite.

    Tonight I had scheduled the raiding event to be open for continuing any bosses we had trouble with but since we were able to down the ones I had setup for this week's goals I will use tonight to start putting together the foundation of our 2nd 10m raid. Those of you who read this and are interested in leading it please let me know ingame or via PM, otherwise once my mage is 85 and geared I can lead this one as well.

    Edit: My goal this expansion (at least until the first major content patch) is to get every Beast an opportunity to raid if they choose to and as our raiding numbee swells (or dwindle) we can split the two raids towards progression and gearing until both can run the latest content concurrently.

    Steve will set up four raids if he has to. Anything to avoid doing 25 mans.

    So, a bunch of us [chat]ers over from D&D have decided to get back into WoW again. There aren't really enough of us to form our own guild so we thought we'd throw in our lot with you guys. So, who should I PM for a g-invite? :D

    If you do a /who Beasts, bother a random person and they can point you in the right direction.

    If any of your alchemy types have a cooldown on your transmutes that you aren't using I need some truegold for a shield I am crafting.

    Also gev if you have a spare chaos orb. I would buy you a new recipe.

    While we're on the subject of crafting. Can I get someone to make me a full set of PvP DPS Plate for my Retadin? It's time to get my TB on.

    Just let me know the cost, I can either gather the fuckton of materials, or if you have them, just send over a fuckton of gold.

    Yeah.

    Daddy could use a set of pvp gear, but daddy could really use a vial of the sands.

    By the way, have I mentioned that I feel it's kind of bullshit that the engineering and tailoring flying mounts are profession limited, but not the vial? Because, I do.

    I wish Blizz would update vanilla player models. The human in that video looks terrible compared to the draenei, blood elves, and goblin. And female trolls, just ugh. They should take the female draenei model, remove the horns and tail and swap the goat legs for human, night elf, or blood elf legs and call that the new female troll.

    Too many of the female characters are already made generically humanoid, for the sake of being pretty, with the Worgen being the primary example that comes to mind.

    I do agree that the old models could really use a revamp though.

    While an update may happen, they will likely never do anything so dramatic with the females. Trolls in alpha were lanky and hunched over in a fashion very similar to the males. But players complained and thus we got the crazy sexual dimorphism we see today.

    I'm not sure exactly why but I've started trying to clear out my backlog recently. Perhaps because I despise sunlight and social interaction I have chosen the start with The Witcher.

    I think this all started because I happened to actually look at my Steam library and realized I had about 20 games that I bought for like $5 during some sale and have never even played.

    The main bullet point here is that I'll be around sporadically until I finish Witcher.

    If anyone's been following G&T, I've been spending most of my free time with my PSP lately. I'm done with BbS (screw that Final Episode!) I think I'm gonna start an alt...but I'm not sure if I should roll either a Goblin Mage or a Blood Elf Mage.

    I was thinking about transfering my rogue but with that 3DS announcement and the wallet rape that is Feb (Tactics Ogre, MvC3 and DQ6) and March (3DS and Ocarina, Dragon Age2) I'm not really thrilled about spending more money transferring toons.

    One playthrough is probably 20-30 hours, depending on how inclined you are to stop and smell the roses/complete all the content. Most people seem to like to play through twice per character, though (the 'build the character' run, and the higher difficulty 'canon' run.)

    You should buy it anyway if you play videogames, though, it is pretty amazing all the way around

    What kind of DPS should I be doing in heroics, first starting out. I remember wrath had an ideal 1500 min to start in heroics. I just broke the 329 limit on my huntard and was told 5-6k is too low.

    For just getting into heroics, with an ilvl 333+ weapon, I say at least 9k DPS should suffice. At least that is what I ask of my DPS for Baradin Hold for the minimum and that is a simple tank and spank fight.

    Ok and BH is a raid, I'm talking 5 man heroics. Of which none of the DPS were at 9k and I wasn't even the lowest DPS, but I was the worst geared. I literally just hit 329 ilvl and got into the heroic, but was told to "step it up" when others were lower dps than me. Are there easier heroics I need to queue specifically for, before randoming into harder ones to get better gear first or what?

    Ah of course, I don't know what I was thinking there. I wasn't really paying attention to meters but I do recall my Frost mage doing roughly 7k DPS in the first couple of heroics. Though if you weren't the lowest DPS in the party and was told to step it up, then the problem wasn't necessarily your DPS as it was them.

    Edit: Honestly raw DPS won't make or break heroic runs unless your party can push through enrage-type mechanics. It a matter of everyone, controlling an extra mob will allow more focus fire and less damage on the tank to not drain the healer. If it were a boss then well timed interrupts are key as well knowing when to go all out with cooldowns.
