    LoL: A tank left a guildies HoR hc random right at the start because she gave him the 60 min fort not the 30 min one. He apparently got mad right away, said he wanted 30min fort and rage quit. D:

    Love: HoR is a lot of fun to tank with SoComm, ret aura and dps trinkets!

    Love: Hit lv20 on my horde shaman in only 11 hours /played. Going to get my mount and water totem quests.

    Loathe: The horde water totem quest. >:|

    Look at it this way: At least now you can use a mount for it.

    This is true. Since posting that I'm already done with the TM part. Now I get to run back and forth and back and forth!

    I really hope the totem quests get a little work over in Cata. I did the Alliance one when TBC first came out, and while it wasn't as bad as the Horde one, it was still bad.

    I really enjoyed the horde fire totem and the alliance wind totem quests. i like going to little out of the way places that you usually wouldn't explore. I still run up to the horde camp in thousand needles the back way cause it's a fun little trek.

    LoL: My 5.9k gs paladin tank friend put together an ICC 10 for me and a few friends who recently started playing again. My gs was worst at 4.3k, and I had to hide in the sewers until we were ready to go so no one could inspect me - a few people did while I was out in the open and promptly left the group while lol-ing at me.

    Fast forward and we get the group together: I end up #2 dps on Saurfang and one or two other fights behind my 5.3k gs DK friend, and we clear 10/12 with only 1 wipe on Putricide before the disc priest needs to go pick up his wife at the airport. Myself and my holy priest friend had never seen the inside of the instance. Epic lolz at the idiots who left that group!

    LOVE: Got 4 upgrades from that run, putting me at 4.8k gs (still not enough to get into ICC without a friend managing the run... stupid blue trinkets and rep chest)

    Love:After a brief lunch break, which turned out to be horrible*, and a few phone calls later, I have completed the dumb water totem quest. Huzzah!

    *I decided to use some left overs and try something new. So I pan heated some chicken, added rice, and a little bit of lemon juice. It was un-tasty.

    edit Love: I also had a cool 45g sitting for me in my mailbox when I returned. Thanks light leather!

    People are idiots when it comes to GS. I feels like their mentality is "If it's not easy it's not worth having" which seems to be more common with people these days.

    That's pretty much it. The pug ICC I ran on Monday, you could hear the guy who assembled it get more and more depressed going on. We didn't wipe on the first four, but had issues after that, and he was just like, "uhhh, I should've checked achievements before this," and just getting passive-aggressive. Dude, your instructions are terrible, you've probably never lead one of these before (he wanted to nine-man Festergut... after one of the tanks left), you have no room to think everything should be perfect on this run.

    The really funny part is that you probably wouldn't have gotten to 10/12 if they had stayed in group.

    I think the ironic part of it all is that the people who use gearscore as the end-all be-all are almost always terrible, or at least terrible leaders. So, when they put together groups hoping to skate by on pure gear, they can't manage the group and end up doing terrible.
    Like the 5kgs+ Ulduar 10 that was forming last night. Somehow I bet they wiped on Auriaya.

    And yeah jackal, that's definitely the best part. I can't wait 'till I start leading pugs and actually, you know, look at armories to see if people gear/gem/enchant correctly rather than slap on as much unenchanted pvp gear as they can find (which I admit I do with my neck and cloak, but those used to be blues so they really are upgrades).

    I know it is an unpopular opinion, but I think any BoE is equally useful to everyone since you can use it or sell it and buy something that would be useful. If it something that sells for 30G on the AH then I don't care if someone who would equip it needs on it because it usually isn't worth going through effort of selling it, but if it goes for hundreds or thousands of gold I think everyone should have an equal shot.

    I can see your argument--that selling BOEs means BOEs are useful enough for everyone to roll Need--but considering AH volatility, effort, server differences, etc., I feel like "near-immediate use" should trump "possible monetary gain eventually".

    Unless it's a quest item like the Battered Hilt, cuz that use would definitely be not-immediate and even if people could really use the end item, you're never going to be sure they won't claim that then turn around and sell it.

    Much to my surprise, the battered hilt still sells for ~10k on my server.

    I mean, I expected it to still be expensive, but the price really hasn't gone down much since they lowered the drop rate.

    Fairly certain he's talking about the BoP random drop dagger. Makes the drood sound like even more of a goosecock though.

    I have multiple alts all who I would like to see relatively well geared(eventually). Since the random BoE won't be of use to that current character, would it still be wrong to need it? I'd say that most everyone would say yes, probably wrong.

    I ask because an ilvl 200 boe world drop(belt i think?) dropped off trash in ICC the other day. I knew that my soon-to-be 80 priest would want it, if only for the time it takes for a better one to drop, which considering my schedule lately could be a long time. Factor in that random heroics factor in gear level for your placements and that ilvl 200 is pretty useful.

    One of my favorite memories from my early WoW days was climbing the mountain in Durotar and fighting the fire elemental. And since it was my first character, it really felt epic.

    Edit: Of course, when I was done, I fell off the wrong side of the mountain, which was a barrel of laughs.

    My rule of thumb is 200 blue is fine to need on, but 200 purple isn't. That' isn't to say I would call someone out for purple, but I don't even mind someone needing on blues (although I wouldn't need on them).

    See, this is what I was kind of concerned about. If it was the Unsharpened Ice Razor, that's BoP and the druid is much more of a dick for rolling on it.

    Well today on my paladin I had a DK tank bitch at me for an entire instance because I wouldn't give him Blessing of Kings. I gave him Greater Blessing of Kings at the start of the instance, and it was up for the entire instance, and yet he kept bitching about me not giving him 10m Kings.

    Love: Became the "11th Man" in a friends 10 man ICC and have, in the past few weeks, been invited pretty much every time (and have found raiding can be a lot of fun having previously avoided it for most of the rest of my time in WoW).

    Love+1: Got heroic princes down last night which just leaves three achievements between me and mah bone drake. I also got a H. Blade of Culling for my tank set, a H. neck for my DPS set and my first piece of Sanctified gear.

    Love+2: Got my Rusted protodrake on Thursday.

    Love+3: Got Loremaster of Kalimdor finished on my DK finally - just half of Outland to go for the title.

    Love+∞: Ravenlord get! Ran that so many times, enough times to have seen four drop, but finally I've got mine.

    Lulls: We wiped something like eight on trash times last night, but only once or twice on the seven bosses we downed - this was generally due to shenanigans and hi jinx though (tanks turning off threat buffs, misdirects/TotT on DPS/healers) so was mostly amusing.

    Loathe: Will miss raiding with these guys come Cata as most of them will be going 25 mans.
