    reading the patch notes, it seems like mage torghast might actually... be fun?

    rip to all the dogshit polymorph powers

    lingering torments is still bad but being able to reset mirror cooldown and just burst constantly seems really fun. also the alter time synergy of making it last really long, giving lust, and reducing CD of your spells while it's up

    now they buff my BM legendary after i let my sub lapse

    Serpentstalker's Trickery no longer triggers Wild Spirits (Night Fae Ability) twice

    I figured this was gonna get fixed at some point

    glad they are buffing my bad warlock covenant ability. still probably won't be the "best" one due to longer cast time and slow projectile travel time but damage wise it won't feel as bad

    I was hoping for some other changes with enhance. 40% more damage on lava lash is something, but so little damage actually comes from that ability. I think if they gave the lava lash talent as a baseline it still wouldn't amount to much of the overall damage.

    Some of the anima power changes will be nice to play with.

    If people show up we can do the normal raid.

    Last week a lot of people did the achievement normal so I think that poopood the saturday run. Wanted to try for timewalking black temple, but there wasn’t much interest. Also I know I forgot that it wasn’t a flex raid, so might have been hard to fill out anyway.

    So yeah show up sat night if you wanna normal on whatever character and we can enjoy shambling for fun. This is such a good raid I still wanna mess around in there.

    Yeah I’m honestly shocked the SST nerf didn’t happen before the expansion launched. It was only a matter of time

    Yeah the first time I tried it myself on my hunter I was like "this seems unintended"

    Overall people said that the sky is falling, then math happened and is....a 3% ST nerf and up to 5-7% AoE nerf.

    Is not great, but not a deal breaker and is not changing anything from the Hunter meta.

    this is a screenshot from world of warcraft by activision blizzard entertainment, a kellog's company, that was posted to the social media platform twitter dot com. it depicts a small fox-like creature named Count Chocula, a reference to the world famous children's cereal count chocula produced and sold by EA games. below the name you can read the words "Shambler Milk", a tribute to one of the classic lines from meet the parents, "i have nipples, greg, could you milk me?" alluding to the idea that robert de niro is a shambling corpse

    I’m gonna put out the general call:

    Is there anyone else that needs AOTC, doesn’t have it due to scheduling issues when we made it to Denathrius, has raided with us at least somewhat this tier, and has an item level of roughly 210?

    Would the plebes who have potential upgrades on the last two bosses of the instance be invited as well, or would they be excluded like last night? Or relegated to coming after for transmog upgrade chances for others?

    Just saying, it feels pretty shitty to be excluded from doing the encounters you need and have been working on for months because you're not part of the guild-within-a-guild. I don't expect anything to change or anyone else to care, more just trying to flush this out of my brain because I woke up at 5:30am thinking about it and this bullshit isn't worth losing sleep over.

    Good luck on your future endeavors.

    Honestly I really wanted to go, because my Druid finally got pretty geared and I wanted to slam Raid Bosses in the face with it. And any nice drops would be a bonus.

    But I also understand a lot of the people there wouldn't even be playing if it wasn't to help out others with AOTC.

    Honestly it is getting hard to share the thought that all this gear is going to be invalidated not too long from now. Besides, slapping lower M+ is a very, very consistent way to good gear at this point. You can just clear like anything low and get the same Valor from it, speedrun them and get up to 5k in no time. Gather up stuff from it then complete at least the 10s and get a nice set of 213. Then try to work out KSM

    I know whenever possible I will be doing 15s for KSM, so if you want to work to time them feel free to organize that here. I can't this week mostly because I am on call for work, but after that any night I am down to slap those 15s.

    Yeah, likewise. I kinda took this past week off everything because I was feeling sick as a dog but I'm feeling better and down to clown.

    I am 100% down to help people with AotC, but I didn't even know there were heroic attempts done this week. Xeno told me after the fact on Thursday that there were a few heroic bosses done and then today I find out that there were some attempts last night. I love the Denny fight and I want everyone to get AotC, just ping me if I'm not in WoW and I will come with bells on to help.

    Yeah, we were already on the brink with 2/2/8. Oohso showed up for our last few attempts so we could have invited more people at that point; that's my bad but we were also on a very strict time limit (or at least I was) and we only had about 20 minutes worth of attempts left so I just wanted a kill at that point.

    But it was also a strictly AOTC run; we went straight to Denathrius and then left, and that's really the only kinds of groups I'm interested in actively setting up at this point in the tier. If people want to do loot runs and need a tank I'll log in and help out, but yall have to be the ones to set that stuff up. I'm so burnt out on the game that I'm really only invested in getting everyone who wants it their AOTC since that's the only part that literally Goes Away when 9.1 drops.

    A bunch of other people offered to help, which was appreciated, but until oohso they were all dps so it was just literally unfeasible.

    We went yesterday because at least one person in the group can't be on for our scheduled raid days without taking a vacation day, so we kind of scheduled around their availability.

    As far as I know there's still an open Tuesday/Thursday policy for everyone who is interested in raiding even after a tier is 'done'

    There were three of us - yuja, fodo, and myself - who had missed out on the guild's previous Denathrius kills due to our own scheduling issues, and we went in with a small group to catch up to where the rest of you were already at. We didn't have the right composition to take everyone, and I'm sorry for that. But please try to understand that as much as it feels like you were left out, most of the guild already had something that we didn't, and that run last night was to catch us up to you.

    Yeah if anyone doesn't have AOTC yet and wants it and can be on for our normal raid times, I'll log on and help them get it.

    If they don't have AOTC because they *can't* be on for our scheduled raids times, I'll try and setup a group so they can get it.

    But at this point in the tier, with there being so many different mechanisms to get drops, I'm not really interested in loot right now. If people need my role or whatever I'll help out, but otherwise I'm just not as interested in being proactive on that front.

    I totally get it, the denny fight was draining as hell. I wasn't surprised when tuesday had a lot less interest.

    The tier as a whole was definitely one of our longer ones, and Shadowlands making everything pretty much accessible out of the gate meant that I went in *hard* at the start and ended up getting burned out as a result.

    Hopefully it'll change with later tiers but right now I'm pretty much not logging in at all unless it's to help other people with KSM/AOTC runs. My renown is still only 34!

    Speaking of m+ I'll honk on discord when I'm ready but I'd like to get a couple 14s or 15s done tonight for vault if people want in. Bad week for ksm pushing so mostly in it for vault completion unless pleasantly surprised

    I've got an HoA 12 (which will get you a 223 vault item) if people want something more chill/something to warm up on. And I've got an HoA 8 on my paladin (216 for the vault) if other people have alts they're looking to gear up.

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    I've got a Tirna Scithe 14, which is probably the easiest key to run for this affix combination. I'll be available basically any time between now and monday night.
