Don't be chucklefucks.

Stay on topic.

Don't play grabass.
Very useful feedback:
"Hey, we did some math here and based on talents, gear and what we know about gems and enchants, it looks like paladins can't be uncrittable by Naxx. Is this intended?"

Less useful feedback:
"Warrior mitigation has been better than paladin mitigation for the last 4 patches. Why doesn't Blizzard fix that? I'm starting to think they won't."

Not terribly useful feedback:
"Because paladins can't be uncrittable by Naxx, it's clear Blizzard has no design for the class and doesn't understand how paladins work. We'll never get to tank anything. Meanwhile, warriors have the most awesome ability that we are denied out of spite."

Ghostcrawler fills the coffee mug with gin:
"I've waited for 16 months for a blue response to my demand for an explanation of why paladins don't work the way I think they should. And yet on my 35-page dissertation on why this one quest in Eastern Plaguelands would be so easy for my class if you made all of the 28 changes I require, and which I bump every day for great justice, I finally got a blue poster who made a poor attempt at humor and it Greatly Offended me. Now I'm going to troll and reroll because if I'm miserable I want everyone else to be too."
Okay, clearly this has caused an outrage beyond what we expected. The designers called an emergency meeting and while we discovered that it's too late to back out this poorly-conceived implementation, we are exploring a couple of options for all you non-casuals out there:

-- A clam-stacking trinket. You have to equip it like your riding crop.

-- In addition to cold-weather-flying, you can learn clam-stacking in Dalaran.

-- A long attunement that involves trips to LBRS for Horde and BRD for Alliance.

-- Tediously crafting a clam-stacking gear set that will be useful for certain encounters.

-- An Achievement reward for collecting 20,000 clams to be titled "How do you like DEM clams?"

-- A bonus for reaching Exalted with Timbermaw Hold AND Wintersaber Trainers.

-- Beating Captain Skyshatter. At level 60. With a bad ping. In the rain.

-- The clam book has a 0.02% drop rate on Dead Man's Pass or Blade's Edge ogres.

-- Collecting "Clam Scraps" from AV that you feed to the NPCs in order to summon Oystolar the Mollusc Lord in the Field of Strife.

-- Getting 100 other players to sign your clam charter.

-- Collecting 1,000,000 linen from Ragefire Chasm in order to open the Clams of Ahn'Qiraj.

-- Kind of like paid character transfers, but for clam-stacking.

-- You can respec to clam-stacking in between respecing for raids and Arenas.

-- A buggy clam-stacking mod that you will need to update after each and every patch.

-- You see, there's this clam-stacking book in Dire Maul as a rare drop. You get the book, do all sorts of crazy stuff that ends up with the book being breathed on by Mutanus the Devourer.

-- A clam book lying in plain sight in the Barrens next to Mankirk's wife
.

    The money is in illusion dust and large/small brilliant shards on windrunner with those and the boe tier 0 pieces I pick up every day my warlock has become a one stop old world enchanting emporium

    So, healing in raids and in five mans, is it fun?

    Tanking raids is great, tanking five mans sucks.

    DPS is always boring.

    Hate: I don't have time to play until next week.

    Hope: The download and patching process doesn't take eons.
    The 4H thread is down there, though.

    And it only takes about half an eon.

    Healing for me is new, different, boring, and thankless.

    Tanking is a new level of hell

    Dps is fun for me because I don't have to tank or heal

    I finally started playing again. I got my girlfriend to play as well and took advantage of the refer-a-friend thing. Looks like we'll be taking it really slow, which is fine with me.

    I briefly logged into one of my original characters from the game's launch and it was depressing watching the "friend removed because that friend no longer exists" appear at least 5 times.

    I hate the fact I have to go look who left. One of the reasons why I got a second account was the fact everyone I ran with either transfered servers or quit

    Noooo, I must resist! I have a job now, and a life! I can't....oo..purplez...

    Oh, so. I sold my original account, and by sold, I mean attempted to sell but had it stolen from me with a fraud paypal account. Out of curiosity last night, I decided to check the armory for my character and see what the cock sucker had done to it.

    Now he hadn't even touched my druid or my shaman, both 70 with epics. But my hunter, my main, he totally fucked.

    http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Burning+Legion&n=Justinsane

    I had 375 LW and 375 Enchanting. He dropped those for Mining and Engineering so he could wear the Engineering helm. Except, THE HELM I HAD BEFORE WAS BETTER. I had a fucking Coif of the Jungle Stalker. I also had tons of rare and old school LW patterns that he fucking unlearned. Stuff like all 4 pieces of the Black Dragonscale Set (something you can't even do practically anymore). He also put on shitty PVP bracers and boots, when I have T5 quality of both pieces. All the other gear is the same (though he put some retarded gems and enchants on)He also went with one of the worst BM specs I can think of.

    I don't know why this bothers me, it was like 3 months ago I lost the account, but it really makes me sad to see my character trashed like this from some cock sucker. But apparently he has touched the account since July 7th, which also makes me sad, because it means no one is fucking even playing it.

    I wonder if I can recover it from Blizz.

    Well I meant the account. When I "sold" it, I changed the e-mail address for the guy so I can't recover the account like that. And I'm sure he changed whatever else can be changed.

    You can probably get it restored. Just tell them the account has been compromised and you'd like it back. They might ban it if they find out you attempted to sell it but I'd do it anyways just to spite the person who hijacked it.
