    Our warrior tank was pretty good about bringing his own stuff, but we all went out of our way to make sure he had what he needed. Soloing sucks as a prot warrior. It's awful. So, unless you guys are paying for him to respec to be able to solo, it wouldn't kill you to give him a hand once in a while. Next prot warrior you get, invite him to group up with you when you're doing the dailies.

    I'm not absolving him of responsibility here, I'm just trying to make sure both sides of this see the light of day, as this is very common.

    Soloing sucks as a prot warrior.

    It could be a lot worse, like a resto druid.

    Or worse than that, like a protadin.

    Unless you're fighting 10+ mobs at once, then it starts being ok.

    Resto Druid soloing is actually pretty easy compared to a prot specced tank, assuming you have 5/5 Starlight Wrath. Just grap some spell damage gear and go to town.

    I don't have BC, I recently got back into WoW so I didn't necessarily need it, but now I have a level 55 hunter and I am quickly approaching 60. I may or may not buy BC because in the fall I start grad school and will still be working full-time, so playtime will be limited and I'm on a fairly tight budget right now. However I might earn some extra cash tonight for an economics experiment. If I make enough...then I will purchase BC.

    tl;dr - I like to have the blue dot in the chat thread so I know where it's at so I told a slightly pointless story.

    This is not a talent I would ever plan on having as a tree druid.

    I think prot warriors with one-handed spec(I think this is a common talent for them), dual wielding, and using 9 rage devastates in damage gear is going to do better than a druid fully specced into the resto tree(which I believe is the only healing tree without any sort of spell dps buff), in damage gear.

    You'd think that, but really the idea is to play to your strengths so I found myself soloing in my tanking gear because it went faster than throwing on all the shit dps gear I had in my bank. It sounds like a plan until you realize that warrior tanks really don't go carrying around equal level dps gear to their tanking gear. Not to mention that many of your talent points become useless when you don't carry your shield.

    So, Brewfest next month (new Shanker woo) and Hallow's End in October.

    I'm going to run the shit out of Hallow's End. I want that fucking squashling this year, and it better drop. 83 runs last year and I never even saw the fucking thing. Bunch of pumpkin hats (the permanent ones), epic helms and rings, zero Squashlings.

    I want his mount too, but there's a snowflake's chance in hell of even seeing that, let alone winning it.

    Regarding the Squashling and the inevitable pug'ing of the run, I say this as someone who is a big fan of the 'pass and /roll' method of instance looting: use the NEED button for it. I saw like 3 squashlings last year, and 1 of them was ninja'd (didn't win any of them, so it didn't affect me that greatly, but it's worth mentioning).

    I never understood this philosophy (in pugs). Blizzard implemented the need/greed dice for a reason. If someone's a ninja, telling everyone to pass first is only going to enable them. Actually using the dice the way they're meant to be used at least gives people a fighting chance.

    Then again, most puggers are too stupid to grasp the ideology of "need" versus "greed." Had a pug rogue roll need on a primal nether and an ace of furies in Bot last week, you should have seen that sh*tshow.

    As far as glamour items go, if everyone who wanted it just rolled need it'd never be an issue :D

    As long as you make that clear before/when it drops.

    It's likely a long outdated holdover from back in the days before we had the dice thing. The other side of it is that the dice are cold, unfeeling forces of nature, whereas not having to decide within the span of the (now lengthened) timer let's people ponder back and forth over an item. Healing cloth drops; the feral druid, resto shaman and shadow priest all look at it. You'd assume the resto shaman would have first priority, as they're the healer, but there's no reason not to hit Need if you could put it to use. If you're going to discuss items in context (unless you just assign a "healer rolls need, off spec rolls greed" kind of thing) it's really not that different from pass and /roll.

    The only thing I disagree with is having disenchanters roll greed. It adds unnecessary pressure on people to always roll need if they could vaguely use an item, but otherwise I don't mind using the buttons. It's just not something I find groups do very often.

    I've never understood this.

    Why not just do the same insidious thing I (and many others) do, and simply contribute something to the thread? It doesn't need to be a 2 page expose on the seemy underside of WoW, but is it really that hard to come up with something even tangentally related to WoW for the chat thread?

    And yes, bitching about it certainly doesn't help, but here we are.

    Doing dailies as a tank is awesome. Seriously.

    I just ground out the entirety of SSO rep as a protadin, I wanted to hang myself by the end.

    People who think ganking a protadin trying to do dailies is necessary should burn in a fire. Or several.

    General rule of thumb I followed with dailies:

    My mage could do any of them (SSO, Netherwing, Ogri'la, etc) with no problem, so I'd use him to do my dailies if I had the time to do dailies on one character.

    If I had time to do dailies on more than one, I'd do Netherwing, Ogri'la, Cooking, Fishing, and some of the SSO ones on my paladin (the bombing quests, the nagrand one, the nether residue if possible, and the sunfury plans). The isle is incredibly unfriendly towards prot paladins and now that I'm exalted with them I avoid the rest of those quests unless somebody else wanted to group for them.

    Personally, I would rather type a note saying "don't read this space" versus typing a tidbit that isn't pertinant to any discussion going on, and have people make fun of me for not saying anything cogent, but thats just me. Plus I am an introverted lurker who is not even helped out by the anonymity of the interwebs.

    That being said, I can't abide wasting another post on blue dot stuff, so here goes!

    At what point is it best to start working BGs for a build up of honor? I tried in the 20's but the twinks were out in force and it was tough to do anything. Now that I am in the 30's, is it get any better at later levels?

    Honor gains at lower levels are pretty dismal anyway, so if you're doing this with the intent of having honor saved up for level 70, you're much better off doing BGs at 69, or just running AV at 70.

    My raid finally killed council last night and I was tanking the rogue as I had in the past. Why did no one tell me he always reappears in roughly the same area as he vanishes. It makes things so much easier than wandering around like a tard waiting for him to pop up and one shot a clothie :(

    Honor gains between 61 and 70 are equivalent to 70 (I think) but it's hard to find open battlegrounds outside of AV, so be prepared for long queues. If you are in AV between 61 and 70, also be prepared to die a lot.

    That said, I always run bg's pre-70 to gain enough marks and honor for Gladiator weapons, so that when I ding 70 I'm loaded out with a top of the line killing machine. Makes a big difference when finishing the SMV and Netherstorm quests.

    Not to burst your bubble, but everyone gets a tabard for participating in BG's. If you win you have a pretty decent chance of getting a noncombat pet mailed to you also.

    Yes, but that's going to add at least another minute, probably two, to your time. You can't summon people, so they've gotta run all the way from the entrance. Even worse if the person you're subbing out runs out rather than hearths.

    I suppose you could sub someone non-essential, like a DPSer, during the trash, and you'd only effectively lose something like 30 seconds in increased time-to-kill.

    [edit]Actually, is there anything there that forces you to be there for the boss kill to get the item in the timed chests? I suppose they might make a special exception for the bear, but it seems like you would be able to sub someone out after the boss.

    There are some non-fishing recipes that are still green to my mage (he's at 370 something cooking) and I only do cooking with him for blackened basilisk or for whatever is required for the cooking quest.

    With my pally I just leveled them together, the recipe that gets you to 375 is the spicy crawdad which I needed a ton of on her anyway.

    As far as SSO goes, it's great if you are a jewelcrafter. If I hadn't been a jewelcrafter at the time I probably wouldn't have bothered.
