    Yeah....gonna check that out when I'm home >.>


    In wow related stuffs: Got into the front section in LFR last night on my pally for the valor (and maybe some gear). Jin'rohk wasn't a problem, wiped on the bridge of course when the tanks decided to pick up the 2nd set of spirits and the construct at the same time.

    Then we wiped on Horridon when it became painfully obvious that the tanks had no clue how to do the fight. We're talking "both tanks sitting with Horridon in the middle of the arena while the intelligent DPS were tanking adds" levels here.

    At this point one of my guildies who had asked if I wanted to do Warbringers with him asked me to hurry up.

    yeah, killing Warbringers, even without getting a mount, was more fun than that.

    I need to get on my rantbox about interrupts in general, this expansion. When I'm out in the world, or even working on "most" trash, my interrupt attempts don't work. "Crit Runes" in Court of Bones? nope. Chain Lightning and Thunderstorm on normal ToT trash? nope. 2/3 of buff casts most MoP world mobs cast? Hell no.

    Not to mention, the only place that I seem to be able to reliably Purge a target without the game saying "lolwut" is the first area of the Golden Lotus dailies.

    I know I'm generalizing, but it's really frustrating. I should be allowed to interrupt more casts that I'm currently allowed in MoP.
    I know for a fact the Crit Runes cast is properly marked as uninterruptible by the silver border around its castbar and shield around its icon on the default UI's enemy castbars. If you have mods that change your UI but don't continue to provide you the uninterruptible stuff, then you need to fix your UI. Generally the only way to "interrupt" those spells is with a stun and that only really works on mobs out in the world and not those found in instances/raids.
    I think his point was more "why is so much NPC shit uninterruptable"? I can understand it for major raid trash mobs and such where you're supposed to have to deal with their abilities and not just interrupt them, but uninterruptable abilities on things like daily mobs feels like overkill.

    Of course some classes/specs don't have real interrupts so maybe it's to put everyone on a more even (read: crappy) footing.

    Idgi. Even on my terribly undergeared Rogue (he was like 440 when he went to the Isle the first time) I wouldn't dream of interrupting the Crit runes. It's free damage?

    (also Quartz shows if spells can be interrupted by default, so if you don't see it, you fuzzed with the settings)

    I was using the Crit Runes as an example (I use the same technique as you guys of pulling mob off and using it against them). And, yes, it's the issue of "why is so much shit uninterruptable?" especially out in the game world.

    I still don't see a reason why raid trash needs to be uninterruptable. It's only there to give us a breather until the next boss; so what's wrong with the players making it easier?

    eh if i can't interrupt something i just stun them... i can see that being a problem for some classes though.

    i think it's cool for enemies to have both an interuptable and an uninteruptable ability. the uninteruptable should be like a signature and the other just a generic spell. it gives every enemy type more character

    What's even worse: If you solo queue, you're virtually guaranteed to get into a run already in progress, so it's TWO 45+ min queues to finish a wing. It would be nice if you got bumped to the front of the line for a fresh instance when you get an in progress run, but that would probably $%^& the DPS queues even further.

    I hope the 5.3 change where the loot drop can be independent of your current spec improves things a bit; I know I certainly run my Monk/Druid as DPS on things I'd rather be healing so I can get questing gear.

    You guys should know this but you can multi-queue now. Go into the LFR menu and you can queue up for Scen, Dungeon and Raid all at the same time. You don't lose your place in line, either. Helps make the wait for DPS go a bit faster.

    And if you want the wait to be less for DPS, convince more people to queue as tanks because that's what I'm always waiting on.

  • BlendtecBlendtec PittsburghRegistered User regular
    I always end up waiting on healers. 20 minutes in queue, 2/2 tanks, 0/6 healers and 17/17 dps every single time.

    I disagree. I tank them on my warrior, and its still a 25-45 minute wait as a tank (and only a tank). Adding a healer nearly makes the queue instant or at least reasonable.

    It's pretty bad. Just killing farm varmints in Resto spec usually makes me wish I had bothered/remembered to swap my spec and gear back to Guardian (which isn't even a DPS spec but is still far better for questing) beforehand.

    Maybe I'll try Resto kitty; I'm trying Moonkin since I can at least use the same gear... but Moonkining just feels awful. (It's mostly the 45min cast time of Starfire vs every quest mob having an interrupt or knock back) I mean, I realize that secondary stats for the two specs are completely the opposite of each other, but even my 460 SPriest can kill things faster and has better survivability to boot. Sure I can roots and kite and knockback, etc, but it's just horribly tedious vs my same ilevel DK smashing the stupid mob in the face three times. And Troll cats are adorable punk rock stars, so that's an important thing to consider. :rotate:

    I've run into the same thing; most of the queues I'm in are 2/2, 1/6, 17/17. I think I've only ever seen once where we're waiting on a tank. I do usually run a scenario or 5 while waiting, Dungeon queues can be painfully long too.

    In recent weeks, on the tank, I've also run into the "wonderful feature" where the estimated time remaining just disappears. It usually happens around the 10 minute mark and I've waited as long as an hour and it never returns.

    This has really taken the starch out of my strategy. Now going into a dungeon with an elixir on I look on my fellow party members as the most dangerous thing there. And I don't dare explain that I'm pulling conservatively because of the elixir because some goose will misdirect three or four groups onto me for the lulz.

    And yet, look what happens when you have a raid without trash. You get garbage like Trial of the Crusader. Or the 2nd half of Dragon Soul. When you go from Boss to Boss to Boss with NO trash in between, it's boring as fuck. And it doesn't feel good. Trash does actually serve a purpose, believe it or not.

    That being said, when you have things like, Horridon trash or Dark Animus trash, I just want to kill everyone and everything. Fuck that shit. Trash is supposed to let you turn your brain off, to give you a breather, to let you relax a bit. When you're blowing Heroism and every single cooldown in your arsenal, that is not trash. That is a miniboss.

    I actually couldn't disagree more, re: no trash.

    I loved ToC and the back half of Dragon Soul because of this. They moved swiftly and you didn't have pull after pull of idiot boring ass oozes. Granted I'm only talking from the perspective of LFR (currently, I did raid in WotLK)...but yeah, every situation where there is no trash or as little as trash as possible is, for me, universally better.

    Trash can be fine, to a point, to teach you mechanics prior to a fight, but if they're not doing at least that then what are they there for?

    There's a reason that even in LFD people figure out on day one the best way to avoid as much trash as humanly possible. Trash is rarely interesting, and is just a nuisance. That's actually probably a good portion of why I haven't enjoyed Scenarios that much. It's just trash runs and then...maybe you're LFD/LFR queue is up. :rotate:

    I thought ToC was great, minus the faction champions fight when in a group with a bunch of incompetent carebears. The back half of Dragon Soul sucked because the encounters sucked, not because of a lack of trash.

    A little bit of themed trash with abilities that help train you for an upcoming boss is usually OK, if it goes quickly and if there is at least the chance of getting something useful from it so having to kill it doesn't feel completely pointless. Too often there is just too much and it does not go quickly, unless you're in a guild working on heroics in which case the trash has long since been trivialized.

    If you have any of the raid drop pets, you can cage them regardless of server. Toss em up on the AH, they usually sell for anywhere between 500g-2k on my server. Great way to get started on a different server.

    We have morons attempting to control the AH on my server. Other than Ashstone there isn't a single raid pet under 2k. In fact they are all 3.5k or above. And they do the same pricing scheme on all of their other products, crappy recipes for 5k.

    I could understand if they actually sold anything at those prices, but they don't. I've been on the server since classic and seen these names over and over and I've watched them post the same auctions over and over again for the same ridiculous prices.

    I can only assume they're Chinese gold farmers who haven't received the memo to go to a more popular server.

  • RanlinRanlin Oh gosh Registered User regular
    In my experience people only do things like that for so long if it actually works. By works, I mean they sell something occasionally.

    Completely ignoring the likely much greater profits they could rake in pricing things better.

    Some people enjoy going "lawlz i sold sum noob this pocket lint for 5k lololol"
