    wat

    I dunno, from my perspective it seems like something you really have to try for. But I haven't PvP'd since vanilla so I dunno how the flow of combat goes in Arenas / BGs.

    ... Actually, that's a half-lie. I did PvP in TBC when Quel'Danas was a thing, but that wasn't necessarily by choice (not that I hated it).
    Someone doing just 3 hours of BGs/TB per week would probably surpass 10k HKs in less than a year.

    I like the idea of an Undead Death Knight(thanks Henroid)....but I'm not sure I want to level another DK.

    re AH: for selling or buying?

    You're welcome!

    As for the AH comment, it's selling for now (because I just made mad money on a bunch of random shit I put up this morning), but I have a feeling that a lot of people put things up on sale for way lower value that can be swooped up and re-stocked for higher.

    I decided to tank a normal heroic for a quick CTA bag. How are some people so bad at this game? I feel like I'm being punked.

    This fury warrior rocked out 3.9 overall instance dps, had fewer melee swings than I had HEART STRIKES, and only bloodthirsted 23 times the entire instance. He also need rolled on the agility polearm, the 1h str sword, and Tia's Grace.

    What is with people?

    I keep hearing slam is shitty, and yet so far in my leveling (arms spec) it has been god-like to my "Kill shit really fast"-itude. What's the deal?

    Also, I was waiting for the day when this "launch out of a canon" quest in Swamp of Sorrows would kill me, and it finally did just now.

    Who is saying slam is shitty? Slam has been good for a long time now, although it used to be a bitch to use during movement-heavy situations. Slam is bread and butter for Arms, but Fury should only use it when they get an instant cast proc. Hard casting Slam as Fury is fucking terrible, which Grundle's awful warrior buddy was clearly doing.

    Oh, I misunderstood your earlier post.

    I remember seeing plenty of people say that slam is shit all-around. But anyway, even for arms, hard-casting Slam is shit without the talent (though, you can get the talent before learning it anyway).

    Well, Arms without Imp Slam is basically a botched spec, except perhaps in PvP where Slam doesn't see as much use. At least it used to be that way; I don't know if PvP warriors are getting it now too.

    If you see a Fury warrior with more Slam attacks than Bloodthirsts, you can automatically tell he's horrible.

    Edit: Looked at the picture again. Christ, he even used Overpower a few times. I'm guessing he played in battle stance the entire time.

    I wish I could remember the guys name, or even view a list of people I've PUG'd with recently so I could name and shame this guy.. I was tanking a heroic for my guildie the other night and we had a DK in the group as dps. I noticed he was doing "low" dps for a heroic, but didn't think much of it at first as he was dual wielding and I figured he may not have reached the hit cap yet.

    It was a little through the instance when I started noticing things. He was tossing a lot of death coils for one, almost as if he was unholy. Then I saw a ghoul come flying down and join the fight and I thought to myself.. no way.. he couldn't be. So I inspected him and sure enough he is dual wielding, unholy, no points in frost for Nerves of Cold Steel and he wasn't running a ghoul pet. So basically his DC casts were being wasted and he was gimping his own dps.

    Radioactive treestump. It just needs a couple patches where the deer have rubbed all the bark off and maybe a radioactive swarm to rise up out of it every time the druid casts insect swarm. Maybe have a burned patch on the helm where lightning struck it.

    3.9k DPS? Shit, my alt Fury Warrior was easily pulling 10k and I still had 333 weps (actually, just got the sword from Heroic Stonecore the other night so should see some damage raise there).

    But, to answer your question, some people are just plain bad. I random'd into a Deadmines the other day and the DK tank had half his items as DPS plate, I was looking at them and I was thinking, "God, I hope he at least reforged some of this stuff". Which he did, except the gear was reforged for hit and exp. We ended up killing the first boss but everyone in the group dropped and since I was dead and had to release, thus "leaving" the instance, I got dumped in the back of the queue. Luckily, that's when I got Stonecore and got my flash new sword, though the stats may not be the best for Fury it's nice and slow with a big top end. Now I just need to do TB dailies and get their sword.

    The last time I had an honest to goodness bad player, I was able to coach them to increase their dps by 2k by the end of the dungeon through coaching via simple tips. The only reason they listened to me (and the only reason I tried) was because they were a moonkin and I was a resto druid with a near full set of raid gear and they seemed enamored with me due to that gear.

    Edit: Since I'm the last post, I'll edit this one instead of making a new one for talkin about stuff on the PTR.

    The Encounter Journal's implemented and has boss abilities for everything besides BWD, TotFW, and BoT (Firelands' boss abilities are there though). Loot tables look to be set up for everything besides BH, ZG, ZA and Firelands. It also has a search so you can either find spells or loot and then it'll take you to the boss that casts/drops it.

    In addition, War Games got their own UI section in the PvP window, so for all two of you guys who used it, it's even easier to use now.

    Also, and hopefully this is a bug introduced from adding the Encounter Journal to the buttons at the bottom, the keyring is gone. Hopefully if they decide to do this for reals they'll remove the requirements for keys from all of the TBC heroics/raids that still used them since really those are the only keys I had left.

I didn't say anything, so I feel a little guilty (I was drunk...).

    Sure enough, after the next boss, "Man, it won't let me trade it back to you..." because of course after you DE an item the resulting crystal doesn't have the Can be traded to other members note.
