    Happy: My Burglar finished Tombs of Elindil with a good group and during the turn in Aragorn said, "Walk with me while the shards are Narsil are reforged." We went into a private instance and there was Gandalf and Frodo, Arwen and Elrond. I got to watch Eldrond hand Anduril to Aragorn, who raised it over his head and announced: Anduril, the Light of the West. Best moment in a video game ever.

    Of course Bilbo showed up late and everyone teased him.

    Happy: The best quest for shattered sun is the one where you free the murlocs.

    No matter what is going on, watching a handful of murlocs kamikaze into one of the nearby naga cracks me up.

    Bonus points if the next group of murlocs goes for the same naga.
    I hate that quest. Those murlocs are pick-pocketable when they are slaves, and ideal targets being level 60 and neutral. Big money there. But once they get freed, their pockets disappear and you can't pickpocket them. I used to make around 20-50g for one run down the beach. Now I'm lucky to get 10-15.

    Also, the fact that their pockets disappear (and the fact that when you kill them they drop like 0-5c) tells me that them being pick-pocketable in the first place is obviously a bug. A bug that gets me tons of money and gems...

    I reeeeally wish I had known about this...

    I hate that some of the alchemy transmutes are discoverable only. I would've preferred a rep grind with *insert faction here* vs. waiting for random xmute to be discovered at random time. I have almost all the discoverable xmutes/flasks except for three - two flasks & one xmute (water to shadow).

    I transmute almost every day, & my last discovery was well over two months ago. I remember the time between my last two discoveries wasn't nearly as long as this one. GRRR. Discover it already!

    I've been really annoyed with how few elixirs procs I get nowadays. It's not unusual for me to make 40 of any high level elixir for a guildmate, and get at best 2-4 extra when I used to get 8-10 if not more. I recall hearing something about there being a change to how often procs occur, as in you'll get stretches of none and then streaks of a lot. Howevever, I've yet to see a streak or anything for than a x2 (and one x5) in the few hundred elixirs I've made in the last month.

    Anecdotally, my warlock is a potion master, and I usually get roughly 10-40% extra, with the vast majority of the procs being x2, a few x3's, and x4/x5 so rare I can probably count each on one hand.

    Of course, due to the new way stacking is reported in the combat log, it often doesn't look like you get procs (or big procs) when you do.

    Example: you have a stack of 4 Ironshield potions in your inventory, and proc a x2, it will still show up as

    You create Ironshield Potion x1
    You create Ironshield Potion x1

    Now, while creating a ton of these, you can easily miss them. I've had a x4 reported as "You create x1, You create x3", etc. You just need to know what to look for.

    I've heard discoveries suck so much because they don't take old discoveries off the table. So, when a discovery procs, you might just relearn (aka nothing happens) an old recipe.

    That said, Primal Life is worth like 20 gold on my server, and Earth are around 4-5 gold tops.

    So while it's not a particularly great transmute, if they hold about on par with water or air, it can be another way to make a 'free' 15 gold per day or so by just transmuting whichever one is in lowest supply or highest demand.

    Personally I do earth to water or water to air most days. Between boot and leg enchants, I can essentially never have too much primal air, and water are good for most of the healing enchants, which I spent a ton of materials on my alts for here and there. Need 8 or so water to enchant my Shaman's spiffy new healing mace at some point, but I'm rebuilding my primal might supply for the day that we actually see the sunwell LW'd chest drop.

    Hate: doing Kalecgos for an entire night because the healers keep letting the tanks die, or the tanks let the tanks die, or dps is a little low, or whatever the fuck it was. Basically it sucked, and tonight we go back for more.

    Hope: We knock the first three off and duck into BT this week. As much as I want to progress, I hate the eredar twins with a fiery passion. We have new people. They need upgrades. (and I need a new mainhand)

    Hate: Lack of tanks on Blackrock. It's pretty much impossible to get a PuG tank during raiding hours on Tuesday nights. Or almost any other night.

    Solution: Now that I have enough cash to burn some of it on an alt, I'm going to level up a Prot Paladin.

    On the upside, I actually like tanking, so I generally have a good idea of what is expected of me and how to do my job. Half of my current roster of 70s are tank specced characters (feral druid, prot warrior, so I just need the Paladin to complete the cycle). On the downside, me rolling a paladin is playing with fire. Without exception, every time I try to level up a Paladin, I not only drop the character before level 40, I end up leaving the server shortly afterwards (see: my attempts at rolling Paladins on Dark Iron, Greymane, Khaz'goroth).

    Frustrating: After farming up 100 copper bars and 65 rough stone to seed my blacksmithing, 2 RFC runs' worth of greens to seed my enchanting (and give myself some starter gear), and also sending over 16 slot bags, a Black Malice bought for about half price on the AH, and some gold to waste on whatever else I didn't think of providing, Blackrock goes into the shitter and is more or less unplayable.

    I want the water to shadow xmute, because I don't like farming for shadows, which I'll need for the SR gear.

    If I ever get it, then I can do earth to water to shadow. Shadow is the only primal that I need to farm for, because everything else I can xmute once or twice, plus the miner alt.

    I think earths are 4g, lifes are 30g, airs 45g.

    Shadows are really, really easy to get. Ignore Nagrand and go to Void Ridge in Hellfire Pen. Not only are the mobs level 62-63, but there are a fuckton of them that drop motes rather frequently. I've farmed 12 primals in 2, maybe 3 hours.

    Why not just do 2 earth -> water, sell the waters and buy an air? If you plan to get all your primal airs from just your transmutes, then by the time you have enough for the belt you would have an extra 100g.

    Guild Wars:

    Happy: Checked GWW last weekend for the latest updates, and noticed that they added an end-zone to the original Prophecies campaign for the 3rd anniversary. This area, accessed once you complete the last mission, essentially gives you a free Green (equivalent to an epic) weapon of your choice. Granted they aren't the absolute best, but for my ranger, they fucking rock.

    Happier: Did Hell's Precipe (the last and one of the hardest Prohpecies missions) on the first attempt with a bitching PuG and managed to capture the elite ranger skill!

    Unhappy: Didn't complete the bonus though, guy died :|

    WoW:

    Happy: Horde Rogue up to level 43 in Dustwallow. Levelling definately speeding up.
    Unhappy: Don't like the cock.

    Happy: Dreanei Paladin up to lvl 52, leveling holding steady.
    Happier: JC'ing up to 305, now waiting till i get to Outland proper before taking it further.

    Re: Tank Shortage

    there's no tank shortage, really

    there's just a lack of tanks willign to spend 20g on a single heroic for repair bills because your average PuG is terrible. why spend 20g on a single heroic, when I'd spend less than that in a guild Karazhan?

    When something has a weird proc where making 4 appears as x1 and x3 I think that has to do with you filling up a stack and starting another. I've always seen it be the correct number for the proc when doing elixirs but when doing potions I see that split.

I try to tell him Crusader is better and cheaper, and he won't listen.

    Other morons jump in on the wrong side, saying Crusader is crap for 70 and for enhance in general. Or that I need more hit, or more mail (with int on it). Yet I outdps almost everyone in the guild, including people with better gear levels overall. And I still have people trying to argue with me about this stuff.

    I hate new fights. I think my guild might be retarded.

    Hydross beat us up for a bit last night. First wipe on first transition when the nature tank forgot to put on his resist gear. Second wipe before first transition when frost tank got hit for 20K at 250% (apparently only has 200 frost resist). Third wipe after first transition caused by a fireball totem. Fourth wipe caused by OTs (all of them) forgetting to pick up their adds.

    Then we went to pick on Magtheridon (normally a 1-shot) to regain some of our self-esteem. But instead we wiped on him 3 times (the MT kept disconnecting). We got him on the 4th try, though.

    Then a bunch of people left and some decided to go finish off their ZA. 7 of the original 10 were around, so they needed 3 more (2 DPS and a healer). I sat there with my hand raised, and they instead picked two dumb hunters who average 200 DPS less than me because they are part of the Good Ol' Boys network. I sat it out... They went and wiped 5 more times, never got the kill, and that makes me feel better.

    Yea, I don't really think you want to go past 4 stacks (100%). You may end up with a few more adds, but you get far less tank damage than what the 250% debuff is going to hit for.

    If both mongoose procs go off, to my understanding, it is worse because even if they borh proc at the same time, it's a DPS decrease since it means there will be a time when it is not up. Executioner is a flat increase since it's pretty much up all the goddamn time. Added with a Mongoose proc here and there and you are doing pretty damn decent DPS.

    But again. You only want to use Executioner on a BS Mainhand or equivilent because FUCK that enchant and mongoose.

    Also Bigity are you excited about the BS onhander changes? I'm excited.
