    You shut your damn mouth!

    I just wanted to get in on a pre-xpac event this time around. I always seem to let my sub lapse right before and miss them.

    Also, it'd be nice to get in credit for a ZG clear before it's gone. Since I could never convince anyone to do anything but the mount bosses, and soloing Hakkar was just an endless cycle of mindcontrols and resets.

    Hakkar has never MCed me when I've soloed him. Jin'do does, but it breaks so quickly that he doesn't reset.




    edit: Welp, there goes my realm. I love patch day.

    Hakkar will MC only when there are two or more "characters" on his threat table. So you can't have a pet out that it's possible for him to kill or poof (shaman wolves), because if he kills it and you're still MC'd he'll reset.

    It will be glorious.

    I don't get it. I would solo him on my paladin, whittle him down for awhile, and then he'd MC me. Not long after that, he'd reset. No pets, and I would be the only person in the instance. Unless having someone in the same group as me, rather than another group in the raid, would put them on the same threat table?

    It's a hassle, but I guess I'll have to make a full set of glyphs for all my characters today (Europe patchday is tomorrow), because the required mats will triple. Not looking forward to that, because the Ink exchange system is tedious. On the other hand, it would be even worse without it.


    I thought about buying a l0ot of glyphs and selling them after the patch for a profit, but prices are so high already, I'm not willing to take that risk. I expect that there are several moguls just sitting on guild banks full of glyphs.

    I considered getting on my druid and farming up enough ink to make all the glyphs I wanted, but eh. It'll be easy enough to do after the patch, and I have a bunch of ink kicking around her bank already.

    Not all. Leaving spider boss up just leaves him with a ~5 second stun, but I would recommend killing the rest for ease of murder. Otherwise he'll fuck with you like that.

    bat boss isn't much of a deal either.

    Panther gives him the gouge, which I guess is probably irrelevant if you are soloing him.

    weird that he still MCs you though. When I would kill him on my warlock with the felguard tanking, I don't think he ever mind controlled me.

    I was curious about a few things

    Several people have told me I cannot finish the AQ event because they removed a few bosses or mobs?

    Are we going to get extra character slots I remember there was survey about paying for it

    Are the new major glyphs something the trainer teaches or that hell of the book drop again?

    The last part of the patch is around 80mb if you already got stages 1-3 from the background downloader. Total patch size is 4.76gb if you had it disabled.

    Hmm. What I heard was that most glyphs just turn into their new counterpart but that some glyphs that have no new version turn into the Charred Glyph.

    Also no new glyphs to learn, if you know all current ones already.

    Bleh, I've been trying to work ahead with figuring out my builds for 4.0.1 with the wowhead calculator.

    The problem is that for some reason, they don't appear to be saving. It'll save the glyphs but the talent points are all reset.

    For the record, I am clicking the "link to this build" button and bookmarking the resulting page.

    They changed it a while back so that you can just bookmark the page you're on (it's automagically updating the URL as you spend talents). But your way should also work, so I don't know what's wrong.

    Wowhead works fine for me, whereas wowtal.com doesn't even load.

    Yeah, you can pause or cancel the download then resume later. It runs a check to verify what you already downloaded then picks up where it left off.

    If you already have the files they should look like this:

    The launcher will scan them and verify that they're correct then apply them. If they became corrupt somehow and it's forcing a redownload you may be SOL

    MC is one of Hakkar's intrinsic abilities I believe.

    He will MC you if you have any guardian or pets up. DKs can't use bloodworms or ghouls when fighting him.

    Basically, he will MC you if there is anything else on his threat table at all, but otherwise will not.
