    Someone last night mentioned a DE proc. Is this a definite thing? It'd be nice for enchanters.

    You do get extra keystones from Archaeology, although it seems to only want to proc on races you're finished with. My bff was confused when I mailed him 29 NElf things.

    The extra keystones are pretty nice. I get them almost faster than I can use them, now. Except tol'vir ones, cause all their solves can use 2-3.

    Is it true that once you finish all of a race's solves, their sites stop spawning as often? I'm finally done with night elves, hoping for some more tol'vir sites.

    I didn't quite understand what they were saying about the heroic version. Supposedly there is an extra phase in heroic thats not there in normal, but I can't tell which one it is. It can't be the last phase when the npcs come to help you can it?

    Its nice that they laid out the encounters in the book, at least ability wise, so you don't have to dig through wowhead to figure it out.

    levelling any tradeskill is a clusterfuck, it's only the gaps between levelling each that allows us to distinguish the last one as not shit

    like alchemy! turns out alchemy's mats are pretty easy but they end up split over multiple zones for a single recipe at 250-300 points so it's still balls!

    I started my Hunter and got her from 14 to 30 in a nights play. My mining and herbalism couldn't keep up with the leveling pace so now I have to go back to Wetlands and just node hunt.

    I was really surprised at the rate at which I was leveling. Was there a curve implemented?

    I just leveled JC for the first time on my priest and it was horrifyingly bad. I actually think alchemy is one of the easiest to level but then again I've got a tauren druid herbalist with 310 flying. It's my go-to profession when I level an alt and don't feel like leveling anything else.

    JC and inscription on my priest was basically a "hey I don't have either of these" but fuck them both I'll never do either again. Inscription is just dumb because of the research to get anything worthwhile, but still. Dumb.

    Jewelcrafting is easy to level. Not as easy as alchemy or inscription, but certainly easier than smithing, leatherworking, or god knows enchanting.

    I remember when I level enchanting on my warlock after cata came out, I started dipping into my stockpile of wrath enchanting materials. I figured I should have enough easily, with 700+ dust and a hundred or so greater essences. But no, I burned through like 600 dust and most of the essences. Farming all of that up would've been a tremendous pain.

    Also, I see that theres a Zandalari CTA for healers, I random queue on my Shaman. Zone in, I'm at the entrance of ZG. The group is wiped. "We're on the last boss, rez when you get here." Yeah no, I think I'll pass.

    (HUUUUUGE pet peeve of mine; people just lazily waiting there for a rez after a wipe. Sure princess, it's fine that you're slowing the group down. I don't enjoy the long run back either, but if the healer's running, your ass better be released and running also. If you'd like to ask, and you have a decent excuse, sure I don't mind.)

    I was about to chew you out until I read that part. I agree.

    Sometimes though, people take the wipe as a chance to go take care of something or other away from the keyboard.

    I use The Innkeeper's Daughter all the time. I spent 150 fragments making a hearthstone, might as well get some use out of it. On a side note, I discovered that The Innkeeper's Daughter does not count as a Hearth for achievement purposes.

    I also use the Vrykul Drinking Horn quite a bit because it doesn't have a cooldown. The other stuff doesn't get played with much because an item that turns me into a bug for 10 seconds (and breaks on action) has a cooldown of 20 minutes.

    My guild does some retarded shit sometimes. After getting H-Atramedes down to 30% on Thirsday they decide that using our normal mode strat isn't good enough and change everything. Everything. So with the new strat we're not even getting through one air phase. Eventually dissent grew and we switched back and "one" shot him with our regular strat.

    4/12 and it feels good.

    I like how, when healing, I use almost 0 mana on boss fights (unless a DPS is a derp then somehow I use 100%) and on trash I have to use cooldowns and shit for 3 mobs (when 2 are CCed). What the hell is that?

    At least in vanilla, even though I had enough time to DPS, trash used effectively nothing and boss fights used just a bit more than that.

    Annnnd my seething hate for retarded DPS has hit new levels because I'm trying healing. I had a deathknight ask me why he died 5 times in a row. I told him assisting and watching his threat if he's not going to would help him immensely because I can't heal him when he dies in 2 seconds.

    Heroic SFK last night I had a DK who took far more dmg than the tank. I consistently was low mana from healing him where I normally have no issues. I thought DKs had a self-heal strike; maybe not in Unholy spec?

    My guild decided to try rated bgs last night. Our first one went well since it was against a team that was roughly equal to us in rating, gear and skill level (we won, but it wasn't a sure thing).

    Then, flush with our victory we queued again and ran into a team with 5 healers, with everybody wearing full conquest gear, using two alts to smurf their rating, and get stomped in Battle for Gilneas (we got maybe 2 HKs total).

    Then run into the same group again in Twin Peaks.

    Yeah, I think my guild was sufficiently warned away from trying that again.

    Aye, using deathstrike is like asking a kitty or spriest to drop form to throw a heal or two. It gimps dps, isn't terribly effective, but can sometimes carry the day.

    Remember though, that DKs are absolutely the easiest class to level (they start @ 55 or w/e) so even retarded people can get them to level cap.

    So pretty much everyone in my guild as quit WoW so now I'm left with pretty much no one to play with. I'm going to try and see if I can get into a raiding guild so I can see the Cata content I haven't seen yet and make my subscription worth it. But, if I can't I'm just gonna let my subscription expire and wait for TOR or something.

    Per chance, does anybody need a Prot or Ret Paladin? Preferably I'd like something on my own server (Shadowsong), but I could be convinced to drop down the cash monies if I could end up raiding. Don't have access to the WoW site at work so I can't link my armory, but you can do a search if you're interested, Sephyr the Blood Elf Paladin on Shadowsong. All my tank gear is 346+ and my Ret is technically a higher total ilevel, but there's still a couple 333s in there (legs and back if I remember correctly).

    My GM stole 125,000 gold from the guild bank. He said he stopped playing like two weeks ago because he was bored with the game. Imagine my surprise when the guild bank was nearly empty.

    So I opened a ticket and reported it. Oh yeah I mentioned that the other day he was laughing hysterically about the fact that his friend's guild gkicked all but like 3 people once they were a heroic away from hitting level 20 in the guild. Why did I open a ticket? We're almost level 20 and this guy can be a raging douchebag for no reason.

    So the GM looked into it and lo and behold the money reappeared. I hope against hopes if the guild gets gdisbanded or we get kicked that another ticket will resolve that because I'll be fucking damned if I spent a year on the guild for that. Wish the other Guild Master didn't give it to this douchebag. Not sure what happened, he didn't used to be an asshole.

    Hey GM, you're awesome.
