    it was literally our last attempt, 2 mins left on the clock!

    we had a 2% wipe at around the 30 min mark due to cockdickery with a badly timed starsplosion

    what makes this really awesome is that my ex responded with this rather bitter gem:

    'grats on being 2-3 months behind other servers!'

    I totally dig Algalon as a test of srsbsns guilds. The more Blizzard finds nifty ways of doing stuff like that, the easier they can afford to make normal modes of raids.

    heh... That is pretty much the same thing that happened to us on our first kill too. Was our last attempt, and it was so close on the expiration of the timer that we initially thought we had missed it. I swear... I hate these fights in Ulduar which you beat when the boss gets to around 2% and then cries uncle.

    Oh, and lets not forget about conjuring water for an entire 40 man raid... at 4 waters per cast of the max rank.

    uhgg...

    We had a guy start making water for an hour before the MC raid started one time, so he could quite smugly give it out to people.

    He dc'd 5 mins before the raid started, and when he came back ("a character with that name already exists"), all the water he made was gone. I think he cried.

    Ahahaha oh man, that poor, poor guy.

    Sad: Guild redid Ulduar hardmodes tonight while I couldn't come, to get people drakes. We're not redoing some of the more pain in the ass ones (Firefighter/3Knock/One Light) anymore now, so since I lack 3xKnock still I'll not get my 310% mount.

    Not sure if it is a hate, hope or happy: I think I am done with WoW. I load it up and just quit because I realize there isn't anything I want to do. I will see if I still enjoy raiding next week when I step in to help a friends 10 man but I think I am actually done playing WoW. I feel like I did about DAoC just before I closed my account there. It had a good run, but I don't think I will even make it to Icecrown citadel at this pace.

    Hate: Hey MS, ship my copy of Windows 7 already.

    Same thing for me. I supposedly got in on that $30 offer to students a while back, and I'm waiting for my email confirmation. The thing I really hate is a friend of mine, who signed up after I did, got his today.

    WoW hate: Nothing really, I just haven't played in a couple of days. Which is a happy, I guess.

    Happy: After reviving my guild on a new server, I have managed to get about 15 people raid ready enough to clear 10man ToC, still no luck finding enough for 25.

    Hate: After about 40 attempts so far in the last 3 weeks on Heroic Beasts, our best (And final for the week) attempt on beasts resulted in a wipe to an enraged Icehowl at 30%, after our best two DPS pulled aggro and died, at separate times in the attempt.

    Hope: One more clear of 10man ToC puts our group over the edge and we can finally start smashing faces.

    Long time Troll here, but I finally have a happy of note.

    Happy: Pugged my first ToC25 last night and downed Twins. Death's Choice dropped. Happy Enha shaman.

    Curious: Someone offered me 3kg and a trophy for it. In what world would anyone make that deal?

    Future Happy: Got approached today about possibly forming a 25m raiding alliance so the guild. Would LOVE to get out of farming the 10 man raids.

    Hate: Hmm, OK as a follow up to earlier; Tribute to Insanity to my tank, we fail again this week on my main due to someone screwing up kiting. Really? You get a BoP then just never kite it into the ice, you just stand there. /facepalm.... Previous weeks we've wiped to the disconnect boss and the "how in the world does this person have successful arena teams yet manage to have no situational awareness on the PvP encounter get the hell away from the guy with the 2H" boss. I will never get my nerd points.

    Happy: Had enough badges for 4 piece 245 stuff on my Pally. Not far off from the ring now.

    Confused: How to arrange gear so I don't have a billion expertise.

    Followed by silly happy: We ran a ToC regular (I ran the same stupid raid 4x tonight) afterward they had started yesterday while waiting for our MT to get home from work, a few people missing so they were like "Hey, dual box your Shaman for Hero." Well sure I'll take my poorly geared Shaman and get 12 free badges, a belt and a Helm. Also, Faction Champions is super fun when you have Cyclone, Roots, Cleansing Totem, Hex, Thunderstorm, oh the mage silenced my druid? Huh, tab out heal.....

    Another happy: Helm on my Rogue and Toothpick on my Hunter; 6/7 the Hallowed. Just need a toothpick on my DK. (Still need to do the traveling junk on my Rogue, but the RNG is done)

    Super happy: Horseman's Reins, yay!

    Hope: Four more drop before the end of the event.

    Looking forward to: Random achievement night in Uld 10 on Sat; working on all the random junk like Lumberjacked and they're coming out of the walls.

    8990 and counting, over 9000 will be mine.

    Amusing: Guild GM is one book away from the "well read" achievement, and the book happens to be in karazhan. The only problem was he got R&J for the encounter, and as a bear didn't have the interrupts needed to prevent her from healing them both back to full.

    So I go on my mage and another guildie brings a warlock and we just plow through the instance to the library (side note: I'm sad they nerfed the gold drop rate on the hallway after opera). Get him his book, then clear everything else.

    I've done it on 9, and have cash for the 10th, if I felt so inclined, though that'll probably wait as I buy northrend flying and dual specs for alts as they're called to active duty.

    Though most of my professions are still between 375 and 425.

    Crazy: one day, probably sometime next year, I'm going to do the daily heroic 10 times in a row. It will be glorious.

    Heh, last night we had a guy who complains all the time about being broke say "hey, does anyone else want to go to this 10 man? I don't need anything."

    Um, you don't need like 500g? Because that's how much an orb sells for on the AH, you're getting 15 badges and hey.... They cost 15 badges.

    Happy: 10 Man Heroic Anub finally down (events in recent weeks have prevented us from doing the fight at all). 2 attempts, first one a 2% wipe. Last time we were working on it (2-3 weeks ago?) we maybe got to 10% before healers were down and adds finished us off.

    We finally got to Phase 3 before his second submerge...wow what a difference that makes. Takes the fight from "Oh I hate this" to "Hey, that was fun."

    Had 48 attempts remaining. Nice knowing that we can do Normal and Heroic ToC in one night now, and that Insanity is not far off.

    OMG: Leveling with a mix of AV and questing is the fucking tits. 10 minutes of questing, 10 minutes of av on a perfect rotation is glorius.

    Happy: Through glorius AHing skills I ended up with enough to get my rogue the epic flying in less than a week.

    Happier: Should have the rogue to 80 the week after next and have vacation that doesn't match up... so 8 hours of badge grinding for 5 days! Bleh.

    Can anyone recommend a couple rep starter daggers that are pretty decent? LPC for OH and ??? for MH. I don't mind a relatively cheap ah dealy either.

    I wonder if Blizzard will make the Heirloom items only work until level 80 (at least initially), release new Heirloom items (better ones, or just active up to 85) or just adjust levelling for Cataclysm to account for them, given that by the time it comes out, everyone should be able to have the chest and shoulders for sexy, sexy levelling improvements.

    They have mentioned not making them work above level 80. I believe they have a level restriction on them already.

    Honestly I hope they don't work above 80 at least in the beginning. If they do, all it means is they will adjust the exp to be what they want with the 20% bonus and you'll have to wear them instead of something nice.

    On the flipside, they also said at Blizzcon that they realize most of the gameplay focus is on endgame stuff rather than leveling, so I can only assume that the 80-85 push will be quick enough to not matter a whole lot. (There's a handful of us that plan on trying to do it in one sitting because we're crackheads like that)

    Then again, if the army of alts isn't an indicator, I actually love the questing/leveling process too. <shrug>
