    I'm pretty sure you only get the HK after you kill the ghoul.

    And unless it was changed, I believe the ghoul can detonate himself and you don't get any honor (and presumably no token then, either).

    Ok, this is stupid, but someone help me out if you use Atlas/Atlasloot.

    One of the previous versions of Atlasloot added in The Eye of Eternity.

    Great.

    But.

    Atlas doesn't have an option for this raid.

    So....is there a way to access the loot list for Malygos (the chest, rather) without the Atlas box; since dude doesn't seem to have any intention of updating Atlas to add in the Eye?

    I'm absolutely certain that specced DKs have no souls unless you grab the soul off of the ghoul form. I'm also completely certain that battlegrounds don't record it as a death on suicide. Not that it helps the wrecking ball achievement: it still sees when you suicide and marks it against you.

    End on
    I wish that someway, somehow, that I could save every one of us

    Yeah the more you raid naxx the easier it becomes for your guild to clear. We went from 1 wing taking 4 hours to 1 wing taking 2 hours after one successful clear. The learning curve, at least so far that I've encountered, is quite small. Supposedly at higher levels of experience/gear, the entirety of naxx can be cleared in like 3 hours.

    Contrary to popular belief, you don't need DPS to clear instances quickly. You just need to keep moving. Once the trash pull is down, grab the next and kill it. Less than 10 seconds downtime between trash pulls is ideal, and if the packs are close together, you should be chain-pulling them. DPS have mana regen abilities, and healers are built around regenning mana, they will be fine.

    If you have more DPS, you will clear faster. If you have a lot of really good DPS, you will clear instances quickly.

    you get no honor when the DK becomes immune and goes ghoul form. wether he dies or explodes you get your honor, but if he explodes it doesn't record properly on the battleground sheet as a death or an HK/KB. It DOES however count as a death for the purpose of the BG achievements that involve not dying.

    (tested it out thoroghly)

    Oculus is fun. I only play amber drakes but all you need to really do is time stop when adds spawn which causes them to be 1 shotted or close to it.

    You're doing it wrong.

    Oculus is like so:

    Ruby: Spam the shit out of ability 1. Spam the shit out of ability 3. Use 2 whenever your health dips a bit (or, if you have stupid Ambers, whenever the boss yells)

    Emerald: Keep your poison (1) and debuff (2) on the boss at all times. Heal (3) anybody who needs it.

    Amber: You must have two Amber drakes. Person A uses Temporal Rift (3). Person B, upon seeing the Temporal Rift, hits Shock Lance (1), then hits 3. Person A, upon seeing B's Time Rift, hits 1, then 3 again. Repeat until the boss dies. This takes a moment to get ramped up (can be primed using a Time Stop, though) but eventually you will alternate doing 140,000 damage with each Shock Lance, every few seconds. The 140,000 damage instantly builds 10 shock charges for the Rifting drake to then explode for said 140,000 damage. Oh, and someone should Time Stop whenever the boss yells.

    The most fun way to do this is with five Amber Drakes, as instead of having two of you going back and forth with 140,000 damage, you have two and three people taking turns doing 300,000 / 200,000 damage each. More if it's multiplicative (I'm not sure). When your group is doing a total of 1.2 million damage every cycle, a boss with 4 million health goes down rather quickly.

    Tank Fu: The legend continues

    [Flashback]
    Master Po looks on his student with his sightless gaze. "Soon it will be time for you to leave the temple Grasshopper and wander around, beating up dumb people who can't move fast enough to avoid your tai-chi."

    "But Master, I do not wish to go. I wish to stay here and learn to fight."

    " Soon you will have your freedom outside the temple. Much of the world outside the temple will suck Grasshopper. You will encounter shaman healers who will pull. You will encounter shadow priests who insist on controlling what gets CCed and make awful selections. You will encounter Paladin healers who judge mobs before you touch them."

    "But master, why would I want to go into such a place?"

    "The porn makes up for a lot of it Grasshopper. You will not understand just how awesome it is till you get out of this sausage fest."

    [/flashback]

    So I'm enjoying being a Ronin tank right now. Just wandering from Pug to pug. As frustrating as it can be sometimes, it really is much less frustrating then my old guild, and I've managed to get more done in the past few days then I really had in the past few weeks.

    The 10% was pretty useful in battlegrounds, especially AB. Getting there just 1 or 2 seconds faster could be enough to prevent a flag going contested.

    This is true.

    But this also falls into the design change that Blizzard has been doing lately. The whole "Cutting out required items/talents" thing (for lack of a better description. They described this same situation with PvP and healing debuffs. People regard all the 50% healing debuffs as required in arenas to be competitive. Therefore, if everybody is using them, they might as well just have a global arena debuff that cuts damage and healing by 50%. The same thing applys to mount trinkets. If everybody is wearing them in BG's so they can reach the flags first... you might as well just increase all mount speed by 10% and get your slot back.

    By the same token, why not just give everyone a "get out of jail free card" instead of making us wear a trinket to do so?

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    It gives us an extra trinket slot in PvP. Which is of debatable usefulness since not having the PvP trinket would cost you some resilience.

    It isn't what it was. Many of the core values that made us special were lost as we tried to keep moving through Sunwell, and to be honest, I bear quite a bit of blame for that. Guild chat is pretty much nothing but recycled Family Guy jokes and statements that that just gave me a headache. So I left.

    It has a two minute cooldown, which is the same as the level 70 and 80 trinkets.

    If by shorter, you mean exactly the same and with a shared cooldown, you would be right. It's a two min cool down, same as the good pvp trinket and activating one triggers the other.

    The problem most people have with having perception switched to a free pvp trinket is that, in super high end arena play, any rogue/x vs rogue/x or druid/x was decided before the match started if one of the rogues was a human. There is literally no way to win when one side had perception and the other didn't.

    Now, the primary benefactor of a free pvp trinket is going to be... rogues, since it behooves them to wear as much offensive gear as possible, and freeing up an extra trinket slot for $Texas additional AP with a $Alaska AP trinket clicky is another almost insurmountable advantage. So we're going to go right back to seeing human (gnomes being second) being the required rogue race, all others need not apply.

    Goddammit, my screenshot didn't take. This rogue in my heroic UK pulled 643 overall dps.

    His damage breakdown? 104 mutilates, 44 backstabs, and 42 sinister strikes. You really should have to graduate from some kind of L2P academy before you're allowed into heroics -_-
