    This morning before I logged on I got the error, "Can not validate game version, blah blah blah". So I just entered in a new authenticator code and wham, problem "solved".

    Hmm. Guess I'll stay unsubbed until this blows over completely. Shit like this always affects me.

    Damn it, hurry with the fix! I refuse to let my druid's rest max out!

    I think I've experienced every possible error this patch has to offer, including one I haven't seen mentioned anywhere.

    I won a battered hilt last week and someone bitched the rest of the run because I'm a druid. I'm not sure if he was pissed because I'm not a melee class or because I would be getting a mace instead of a sword.

    Blargh: Was hoping the various changes in 3.3.3 would help lower the price of either eternals or the transmuted tailoring cloth types, but no such luck.

    I guess it's time to do my most hated thing to do in TBC: farm elementals.

    Hate: Trinkets. I may have to consider doing a GDKP that is run our server perhaps for ToC25. How long has ICC been open now? Seriously up the freaking drop rate! 25s only seen one dislodged object and 10s 1 (maybe 2) Spyglass.... /nerdrage

    Hope: so.... arranging a Yogg25 0 this sat, since no one has death's demise on our server. Be cool if things go smoothly. But I do hate leading raids granted 90% of the list is friends so this should be fun :)

    Hate: Why can't I get (good)* hunters/ret pallies/DKs?? WTF o_O

    Bored: Last decent dpser stopped raiding to focus on work (ie: ffxii). The damage meters are now me 2000+ dps ahead of everyone. Except putricide. Theres a frost DK 500 behind me on that.

    Yawn: Apped to a guild looking for a rogue working on Lich King. Was polite, eager, responsive to questions, and provided impressive parses. Still passed on me.

    Happy: Twinked up my pally with BOE and furious ret gear for bg fun.
    Not-So-Happy: Killing healers is just me playing the mana game forever unless its a priest and they mana burn me.

    Normally I stagger my auctions to durations of 12/24/48 (because I always have a ton), but last night they were all expiring at the same time.

    Additional happy/hate: they fixed the name of the proc from the healing Ashen Verdict ring.
    "Chilling Knowledge" sounds much cooler than "Icecrown Rep Ring:Healing Effect".
    But then i kind of liked how ridiculous it was.

    Hate: how much faster paced 25-man Blood Princes is to 10. Sure, you've got a much higher challenge in staying out of 12-yard range, and it's far easier to fuck something up and wipe the raid, but it's so much faster. Blood Princes 10 man is boring and tedious I really do not like the encounter. It's not terribly hard to heal, just annoying.

    It's boring and tedious because the mechanics of the fight revolve around space, which is drastically reduced with the addition of 15 more people.

    edited March 2010
    The amount of space doesn't really do much to increase or decrease the amount of time it takes though. It just makes things much easier to go south in 25-man. It's that you don't sacrifice really any more dps in 25-man than in 10-man, but obviously have a lot more to back you up in the former.

    Hate: Professor Putricide AND Blood Princes.

    Putricide is a bitch because we're so melee heavy and our gear could use some work.

    Blood Princes is just a gear issue. We had all three of our healers go completely mana dry at 20%. Other than that we have the BPC fight down. They'll go down next week.

    I loved Blood Princes the first time I pugged it the first week. We totally got all the achievements. Pretty fun too. We just used two tanks for 10-man. I was a Warlock at the time too but they needed my DPS focused on boss. No point on three tanks when two can do it just fine.

    We were doing two tanks on the Princes with melee abilities and a warlock tank on the one where you have to collect orbs for shadow resistance.

    How did you guys do it?

    EDIT: Also, is there any reason why a melee DPSer would be hit by a empowered shadow bolt if the ranged tank is still doing their thing (has aggro) and the melee DPSer hadn't attacked the boss yet? We had someone get randomly one shot by an empowered shadow bolt and then the boss would go right back to the ranged tank. That DPS was then battle ressed and the next time Keleseth was empowered he shot one bolt off to the ranged tank and shot the next back at the same DPS who was running over to him from the last empowered target.

    Yea, you lose a DPS if you gotta three tank it. It's riskier but the point is, the longer the fight goes on, the higher your chance of wiping. This is on 10-man, of course. I am sure on 25-man, you could just have a real tank instead of a DPS on the 3rd guy. It works out better. DPSers are better DPSers then switching to off tanks. Plus, the bosses die like 15-20% faster.

    The issue with having a warlock tank Keleseth is that their threat generally can't keep up, especially if Keleseth gets empowered second. The other issue is that empowered bolt hits for 100k on heroic, and no one but a tank has the health for that, even with shadow orbs.

    We tried this but found the damage of the melee tank was too much for us to handle, but might just need some time to adjust. Where we fall down is people not paying enough attention to kinetic bombs. Almost every time I was tanking Keleseth just fine as a Boomkin until an orb hit the deck. The damage from the orb + keleseth whacking me will kill me very quickly.

    We have had some unlucky attempts where bombs spawned in a doorway like wall on the far right (apparently you can walk through it sometimes, there's a bunch of mobs behind it too), but mostly the ranged dps just get tunnel vision. Quite frustrating when it happens 4 times in a row. I could keep the orbs solo up but not while tanking Keleseth so changing might work better since I'm sick of the fight mainly running about like a blue arsed fly only for us to die to a bomb killing me.

    Happy: 80 #4, my long neglected hunter. Dungeons are fun with her, soloing not so much.

    Hope: That I can cash in on all the people I tanked heroics for. Half my guild had at least one alt dragged through multiple runs with my bear.

    Hate: The sheer number of buttons. I can't fit every button I would maybe sometimes press on my action bars, much less my keybindings. Is it just me or do hunters have more buttons than other classes?

    We pretty much had to 2 tank it. With a tank on each of the melee bosses, the damage was spit up too much to easily heal. one person tanking it made it so much easier.
