    You know something is up when your level 26 shaman waits in a dungeon queue for less time than your 80 priest. Consistently. Sometimes to dps.

    Not necessarily a bad thing though, as the dungeon queue at low levels is really awesome when you're sick to death of heroics over and over again.

    Yeah it usually is.

    Though one thing I've noticed is that the healer queue seems to have jumped at low levels. It used to be I could barely walk my priest from the bank to the AH before a queue popped. Now it's longer than an average heroic.

    Ive got a theory about why this is:

    People are playing a lot of alts near the end of a patch cycle, thus the Q is a bit faster at lower levels, I noticed this on my Facerolling Paladin last week, when I was Queing up as DPS and getting spots in about 8 minutes or so. Now that the new 3.3.3 patch has hit (Granted its not a lot of content, but there is some intresting stuff going on with it) people are playing thier mains a bit more...My same Paladin takes about 15 minutes or so to get a DPS spot on a dungeon run. This could all be something I just pulled out of my ass, as we haven't had the Random Dungeon tool for a terribly long time, but it seems like it would prove to be correct over the long haul.

    I'm loving the dungeon tool right now, but it's going to be annoying come 80 when I realize I've done almost no quests the entire time and have no rep in pretty much everything.

    Or, hell, even sooner than that, since I'll need to do that anyway to snag epic flying at a cheaper price with Ogrimmar rep.

    You guys can clear Putricide but not BPC? We're still having trouble with dang Rotface, but the Council is only a one or two wipe ordeal. Not looking forward to our Putricide attempts at all.

    Yeah really dunno why - my guess is shock vortex and DPS slacking on the fireballs..But I'm busy healing.

    Though we had our Putricide first last week only (als well as dreamwalker). And Rotface took us 3 weeks to learn.

    We only tackled em last week so I'm really not complaining (much) .

    Hate: My quest to get all 10 characters (one of each class) to 80 has been sidetracked for a week due to the pokeymans and relationship issues.

    Hope: I only have about two and a half levels to go, then I'm done looking at experience bars for another 7-8 months (well, at least on this account), so it should only take a few more hours. Then I can be cool like Forar!

    Ultra Hope: I have time to outfit them all with badge gear and/or PVP honor gear before the xpac hits.

    Spoilered for huge.

    Nah, last week was my shitty healing + Rune's dot kills the orbs. We would have killed them if cyclone hadn't gone tits up after swapping around.

    This week was just tiredness (we did kill 8 bosses in 2 and a bitty hours). Healing and tanking are sorted. I've got keleseth tanking sorted. Just keeping the bombs up and we'll be completely fine. We'll get them tomorrow.

    Happy: Moonkin dps sorted.
    Hate: No staff tonight.

    Hope: Possible dagger from sindragosa. Failing that I'm going to buy a hilt. Make about 2-3k gold a day anyway so screw it.

    As long as your dps can put out more than 5k, putricide is a cake walk and it's just moving out of stuff that's bad and switching to adds. The tanks pretty much carry that fight with all the movement and switching they do. But bad dps means you won't get past phase3 because of the unhealable damage on the debuffs. Compared to the blood princes anyways.

    Hate: On the 25 man I run for my guild, only 5 guild members, including me, have signed up. the other 13 people signed up are outguild PUG.

    Hate more: at least 5 of those outguild PUG, including my only paladins, my only shaman, and my offtank, are in the near future leaving to form their guilds own 25

    Hate most: Saw a post on my realm forum that my guilds main 25 might have room for a warrior tank.

    Hate: had a 20 minute long whisper conversation with a new recruit about why, when we explicitly tell everyone to not link recount in raid, that it is equally obnoxious to link it in /say right before a new pull. I guess he had convinced himself that the real reason was that raiders hate orange lists.

    hope: the Windrunner server is permanently dismantled and everyone on horde-side is given a free server transfer as an open apology from Blizzard for letting such realm travesty occur.

    I ran a heroic with some idiot Mage who was linking recount after every other pull last night, he would then remind me that even though I had better gear than him he was still above me in the meters.

    That's because I was tanking, you're also doing a third of the DPS of the other two (who were totally awesome).

    Hate: I am one of the afflicted with the damn load screen freeze issue that started with the last patch. :x Ever frickin' time I try to port to Northrend it locks on 100% and I have to close out and reload. This is even after clearing cache, wtf, disabling all add-ons, removing all add-ons and running a damn repair which cleared everything. Blizzard better figure out what's wrong since they seem to be asking for dxdiag stuff on the WoW forums thread about it.

    Hate: Similar issue.

    Double Hate: Not just Northrend. I try to log in my bank alt, get the org loading screen, bar progresses to full and it will just sit there (I left it once for over half an hour during a non-peak time). I close WoW, log in again, select the same character and it loads. =\ Luckily, I've found that when I try to switch to another character you don't have to repeat the same process. It seems, at least for me, that logging out (to petey to log in dragon) and logging back in fixes it (until you need to change characters again).

    Mega hate: You know how I was getting the loading screen bug? Well now it just freezes after I enter my password and hit login.

    I am honestly convinced that the universe is trying to stop me from ever playing this game. Every time there is an error you could get, I will get it. I even get errors nobody else has that I can't fix (Like freezing in dalaran after 3.3 came out for no reason and every time I start a thread in the forums I never get a response). I am just fucking sick of this game not working.
