    Actually another really good example. I solo'd Vezax in Ulduar yesterday.

    Searing Flames, that big armour reducing aoe you had to interrupt? Holy fuck you Americans had that fight fucking EASY AS BALLS.

    EASY AS FUCKING BALLS YOU SCRUBS.

    In Australia, you had to interrupt that spell in first third of the castbar. If you didn't, your order to interrupt wouldn't go through until the cast finished.

    Now that I have 40ms, I can actually interrupt at pretty much any point in the cast bar and it'll work fine, so instead of having a window of opportunity of about .6 seconds to react and cast my interrupt, I had the full 2 seconds. It was fucking trivial.

    I guess we can pretty conclusively state that the only reason Oceanic guilds were ever behind US/EU world first guilds was due to the increased latency for the majority of the raid. Searing Flames was a hugely difficult mechanic for us to get right in our raid because you had no margin for error. With a 2second cast, if the person whose time it is to interrupt doesn't interrupt by halfway, I could have assumed they've fucked up and I could have interrupted as the tank. Instead, if someone fucked up, there was no time to realise it, because spells weren't registering as interrupted until nearly the end of the castbar anyway. We wiped so many times solely due to that mechanic.

    You'll still probably sometimes get up to the stairs to be honest

    I'm running a 34ms latency at the moment and it'll still take a sec to register now and then depending on how crowded the shrine is.

    Holy shit i bet latency made a big difference inside the Yogg brain room too. The illusions would react much quicker to being hit and dispelled.

    Sizes are fine if you are a male BE

    Everything is too small for female

    1handers look like daggers

    Bow look like toys

    Daggers look like kitchen utensils

    Their entire weapon ratio is off
    still prefer that over human female weapon sizes, I mean seriously, shit is way too extreme ^^

    also 41 shards, ugh, 2 more resets I guess since I've been getting 6-8
    would have been next reset if I didn't have to skip that dragon -.-

    I mostly just want the stuff so I can sell the shit from the quest and make some 100k, will keep the mount through
    also guildie got invincible on his first ever 25hc kill...

    biggest wrong opinion in WoW
    I prefer stuff to be, eh I would say realistic it's a fantasy game after all, but idk "reasonable" might be a better word, it's why I try to find swords that look like actually swords for my characters, or why I dislike most platekini mogs etc, human weapons size is just off to me and that's why I don't like it

    oh my god when are they going to fix the fucking shield clipping on the new Tauren models? This is ridiculous!

    Elune DAMNIT.

    Of course the Horseman's sword actually shows up in a bag on the character I *don't* want it on. Never on the ones that do.

    Also really wishing there was a option for a third spec. I'm liking Disc for healing small groups, but I feel like I'm not doing enough in a raid environment to keep people alive.

    Human female weapon sizes are comically absurd but that really doesn't bother me at all

    Nice, 6 Titan rune stones and 6 bosses left to go. There's really no reason I can't knock it by next reset even with bad luck. Also finally got to finish my lfr set was sitting on 3 pieces forever.

    Couldn't get my old account back, sadly. Contacted Blizzard but I don't think it's going to accomplish anything.

    Rolled a Pandaren Shaman and got it to 18 last night. So much has changed. Queued for a few dungeons and had a less than ideal time: the other dudes were packing heirlooms so they absolutely butchered things while I did crappy damage with my greens :P bastards.

    Don't expect much from the low-level dungeons. Until around wrath (maybe later now, haven't levelled a character since the patch) roles are completely irrelevant and people will just run ahead and kill things. Even the healer.

    Alright, after getting my final Secrets in the first three raid wings of Throne of Thunder, I've gotten seven Runestones for the next chunk of the quest. I am pretty sure I'll be able to get the rest next week and get the cloak.

    Good luck. I think it's kind of bullshit that they're taking it out. It sucks to miss out on things. One of the people in my guild who was on our CM gold team forgot to buy the pet you get from the guild achievement. I can understand removing the achievement, but they removed the ability to even buy the fucking pet.

    As someone maining a female Orc since TBC, my guess is 10 years. That's how long it took them to fix improve our shield/weapon/cloak situation.

    Given that he was actually on the CM team, he might want to try opening a ticket if he hasn't already. Maybe they'll be merciful. I mean, I assume they removed the pet from the shop because otherwise anyone could temporarily join a guild that has completed the gold challenge, just for the pet. No reason to keep it from someone who was demonstrably eligible for it.

    Not sure if there is a single answer but what is the class that people seem to use for soloing old raid content? I missed a few of the LK and Cata raids and wouldn't mind seeing the ones that can be run solo if I can't find groups to do em. I would assume DK or Paladin.

    From what I've read: DK or a pet class.

    Almost any class with decent-ish gear can solo most old content (I run Firelands on four characters - shaman, hunter, dk, boomkin - for a chance at the mounts). For the more difficult stuff, like hc25 lich king, stronger self-healing is needed (and for that particular fight, ranged attacks to deal with the ice spheres); blood DK does it easily, but apparently ele shaman can handle it too, so I assume any caster with some self-healing can do it.

  • MadicanMadican No face Registered User regular
    I solo Lich King 25H on my DW Frost DK. Howling Blast takes care of icy spheres easily.

    Any class at 90 can solo pretty much anything as long as you're not in quest greens.

    Up first, an alternative mog for my priest. Needs new pants, but otherwise done.

    It's worth getting the Bulwark anyway, in case they fix the clipping. Plus BT is the best raid ever.

    I recently got back into WoW... last night actually. Rather than suck it up on one of my existing characters, I rolled a new Forsaken Warrior - Made it to level 20 in about 3 hours, and even ran a dungeon. The questing is so much better, and the story actually gets you involved. I was having a blast with the story line in Brill and Silverpine.

    Glad I resubbed. It looks like the game is FUN again, at least starting fresh.

    Good choice. The Undead starter questline is the best of the Cataclysm rewrites, in my opinion. There are some rather startling storyline turns coming up.

    I can never decide what transmog to stick with. This is what I was going for a while:

    And yay, 9/12 titan stones with two bosses left. 2 guaranteed during the next reset, so with any luck at least 1 more will drop. Preferably two, so I can just do Sha and save Lei Shen for the heart so I don't have to do it twice.

    I don't like the undead storyline because to me it robbed the worgen storyline. Worgen spend all their time watching the fall of Gilneas, striking back against the Forsaken to reclaim Gilneas, and then Sylvannas bombs everything and everyone leaves. Cue the Forsaken storyline involving everyone who never left and having such minor things as the rest of Gilneas taking the fight to the Forsaken in Silverpine, Sylvannas being killed and then resurrected, the whole damn background to what's going on in Shadowfang Keep, and other really inconsequential things of that nature.

    I was angry when I saw that, because to me it seemed as though Blizzard had put a ton of effort into the goblin storyline to the finish and then completely blew off the worgen to go do nothing in Darnassus for the rest of the expansion and the one after it. Greymane? Who's that? Want the last bit of an Alliance race's story? Roll Horde is what they said.
