    Launch C’Thun was never beaten on live servers. People got to him fairly quick, then he was “impossible” for whatever reason.

    The night the C’thun nerfs went into place (after a rant that mimicked the lead designers rant about EQ) it was basically a race to kill the bastard.

    If I remember right it was impossible to outrun the eye beam with any lag and it instakilled everyone. Then a non American server got the patch first and some guild cleared it at like 3 AM while we were all staring at a maintenance screen or something.

    Yeah I knew it was something about him putting obscene, unavoidable damage.

    I had forgotten about the whole “whoops they got the patch first” part of it.

    The Slime was a whole other story. After this and the whole drama [no where near the train wreck of a guild's drama} We beat C thun much to our puzzlement It just clicked right. It was so bizarre that everyone did what they were supposed to do
    Then the server transfer came the next week and that part of Pug 2.0 died

    By the time your guild got to Cthun, it was heavily nerfed. And you had some Naxx gear by then to boot.

    We did not do Naxx. We were geared in a mix of MC/BWL/ZG/aq20 and some aq 40 gear
    This was toward the end of vanilla like a month or so before TBC came out

    The night the C’thun nerfs went into place (after a rant that mimicked the lead designers rant about EQ) it was basically a race to kill the bastard.

    It was a math problem. The eyebeam I forget, though that part is entirely possible, but the issue was in raid DPS output between tentacles and boss in a given amount of time. Given the people putting forth the claim, I'd buy it; the math was pretty solid, and assumed perfect execution if I recall. Really amounted to "We can do X theoretical potential, it requires Y theoretical potential; this is a problem."

    I just know that Blizzard insisted it was absolutely fine and then when the rant got posted they caved in under a week with a patch saying "oh no this was a planned patch"

    True that. I ran around stabbing many mobs with the dagger to tag while casters wasted time casting. I felt bad, but....

    I am intensely curious how y'like Classic as it progresses, Thawmus, as it's new to you. For any of the truly new, honestly.

    I'm currently still where I was at after the stress test (extremely positive), but yeah, we'll see as time passes.

    I'm playing a NE Hunter, but I've never done the NE zones before. Just finished all of the Teldrassil quests last night, so tonight it'll probably be a lot of fishing, cooking, mining (engineering), and questing in Darkshore.

    Also that's maybe the last time I do Teldrassil, holy crap that's an awful zone.

    Basically all of Kalimdor is pretty bad with the exception of, like, UnGoro and Winterspring.

    Un'goro and Winterspring are also bad

    Un'goro is fine. Certainly no worse than, like, Badlands or one of the other more forgettable EK zones.

    And, yeah, Winterspring is kinda bad, but it's probably the second-best Kalimdor zone (behind Un'goro.)

    comparing something to vanilla badlands is not doing it any favors IMO

  • Munkus BeaverMunkus Beaver Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Un'Goro was very bad but it is also the best option available in its tier.

    The second you can leave and go to the plaguelands, just fuckin do it.

    I think I actually meant Blasted Lands. It's been a while.

    Swiftness potions will pick up in sales when battlegrounds kick in.

    Plus, its a relatively low level potion, you have a ton of alchemists selling their learning crafts on AH. Wait until they cant be bothered to gather swiftleaf.

    Queues on the populated server. Servers are having a rough time the last two days in Redridge only, which is weird, but mostly holding up OK. There's an Alliance guild on Pagle with a bunch of people in it.

    I stayed up till 6 AM to level my warrior up enough to use her level 11 2h Axe that a guildie gave the beastslaying enchant to (RED GLOW!)

    This feels like more of an accomplishment than most things I've done in most video games this year.

    I feel bad on one hand Atiesh is a really good server on the other it's full of asshats, people trying to highjack it and turn into their server's community {there is a serious beef between two guilds/groups from Proudmore} And a serious anti social vibe you get as people are willing to help? But past that they seem wary to socialize past the Hi and what to you need/have left.
    I know it's been a week But I am very curious how this server will end up

    I think that just means that raid xp wasn't being correctly calculated.

    Yeah they introduced a fix somewhere around the stress-test to address groups being unable to enter low-level dungeons in 10-man groups. It is absolutely intentional that you can 10-man small dungeons.

    Regarding it being abused by streamers etc, meh. I don't really understand why anybody would care. If anything I would rather that extreme min/maxing is contained to dungeon instances where it can't directly impact the majority of players. I'd rather that than having these people out in the world camping/farming regular mobs which impacts others' ability to complete their quests. And I have still found plenty of normal dungeon groups not insisting on spell cleave or 10-man SM farming, so as far as I'm concerned everybody wins.

    (Yes, I could've got 2-5 gold for it, but no one would pay hundreds while saving for their mount, and I will use it for a very long time so its worth it. :p)

    between 20 and 30 there's a time when i think fury is obscenely good, but it just comes down to what weapons you have.... weapons come at you so infrequently via questing that what you build could easily be dictated by what you're lucky enough to get

    did my first and only no-life day. didn't make toooo many levels but did a ton of profession stuff also and got a lot of valuable flight paths for later on

    this game has not stopped impressing me, and I can't wait to enter the second half of the levelling process, as there are so many great dungeons in the 30-50 range

    Got my shaman to 16 and I'm enjoy the game so far. It has been a pretty fun experience and the servers feel so lively, I really like that.

    I have been feeling like I'm behind though, I haven't started playing my main warrior since my friend still doesn't have his pc. I also feel like I'm gonna struggle with growing this guild. So far I'm at 9 people and I've been randomly asking guildless players I invite.to groups for quests or players in dungeons I do.

    Not really sure how to properly organize things, feel like I need a discord for the guild but I'm not sure it is worth it just yet for so few people.

    Either way I'll keep leveling and trying to invite people who seem cool. Gotta wreck those raids.

    doing instances feels great again, that's my favorite part, even with non guildies people don't just bail (usually)

    We did have someone bail on our bfd run because we had to wait on a boat... I can't imagine the dps found a replacement group before we all got there.
