Doing ulduar drake run, one guy came in with no achies and now we are on Yogg. Yeah paladins are sick, I would not raid without one. BoK is reason enough, it's the mose useful buff in the game, ever moreso than heroism/bloodlust.

[Edit] Woo! another insanity run and I got a neat axe for offspec/pvp fromt the chest, and also the wolf mount yaaaay!

[Edit] Woo! Yogg+1 down so 310% speed drakes for everyone!

[Edit] New patch... meh.

I have a few guildies that got hilts, used them for the achievement and then immediately trashed the blade, which is kinda funny. Personally, I'd sell the damn thing in a heartbeat.

Nothing. Quel'Delar is very good for its item level; the dps sword version is actually ever so slightly better than the axe I currently use as a combat rogue due to its slow speed, although it has nothing on my daggers. I just find it funny that my guildies are rolling in 258+ gear to the point that they'd rather just have "The Sword in the Skull" achievement rather than just sell the damned thing or wield it.

Basically, me and Clockwork would rather be set for raid materials for ages than achieve whore to the tune of 10 points.

Glyphing cleave is a good thing, your gems look like they always did (arp arp arp expertise crit).


Also, wait, whaaaaat? I know this was from ages ago, but remember that I went from mutilate to combat because the warrior forced us to get someone else to bring Savage Combat. Mutilate doesn't use armor penetration if there's an equal item level alternative that avoids hitting caps. As mutilate, poison damage beats out physical damage to the point that you can start putting your fastest weapon mainhand with deadly poisons and keep the slow weapon in your offhand so that you can get an extra deadly poison proc off of Envenom. I didn't even take the Opportunity talent (20% increased Mutilate damage) anymore because it wasn't worth having that instead of talents that can increase your total number of Envenoms. When I say I gemmed everything, I mean I gemmed everything. I changed 7 gear slots and went from using exclusively AP and Haste-AP gems to using a mix of ArPen, Exp-Hit, agi-hit and a couple of lonely slots that still used AP-Haste. Unfortunately for me, those lone spots were on new pieces of gear, so I had to get new gems anyway.

Hey Y'all.
Long time no post.

Perhaps i should go back and read this tread over again but because I'm feeling kinda slackerish imma do this instead.
I started a Drainai Shaman who i've called Samitehshami on Borean Tundra.
I was thinking of putting her talents into resto but elemental looks cool too. What to do?
Start farming the gold for dual talent?!

I killed that Direbrew guy once and never bothered to turn in the quest. Not really one for achievements. I kinda lay low during events because I'd rather not get hassled by people who need to finish them all the time. I kinda dislike them.

I love the seasonal events! It gives me something to do. When I'm not raiding I'm just stuffing about doing a whole lot of nothing and endlessly running random heroics for no good reason. The seasonal events are fun, and besides, I want the violet proto (I only need the rest of the Lunar ones, Noble Garden and Midsummer).

My Violet proto drake might tell you what I think about seasonals :/ Just glad I never have to do any of them again (Will still be using rusted proto drake though, looks cooler).

Also I got a new sword to tank with that actually has defensive stats on it! This is the first ilv upgrade of tanking sword since I went from broken promise (naxx25) to Titanguard (Uld25) which was fucking ages ago since I got it second week of ulduar being released.

Finally got a guild going again, is compilation of 3 good guilds, currently wiping on Syndragosa 25 bleh.

Oh, and I am nicely geared. All 25 man ICC apart from heroic juggs, heroic toc25 chest, icc10 sword and heroic 10 man ToC shield :(

just over 46k hp unbuffed, hit capped expertise softcapped and crit immune. Just like at the end of Naxx/start of ulduar except 16k more hp :)

Sindragosa is the worst fight in the game at the moment. Finally a fight I hate more than Zul'jin phase 3 and Tidewalker. ICC has been a major disappointment in my opinion. There are a few entertaining fights (Putricide, Dreamwalker, Rotface, BQL) but other than that it's just boring.

On the plus side, I do have 2400 3v3 teams on my warrior and shaman. Whoo.

We downed Putricide last  night in 10man! Our guild has two 10man teams, and for my team, this is progression. We had him down to 3k before the tanks died and he healed, then we wiped. We got him down on our final try for the night. There was a lot of "FUCK YES" being shouted over vent. We did really good. We can get 6/7 bosses down in one three hour sitting, so we're going to try and do all of the ones we did this week, and whack at Sindragosa for three hours on our second raid night next week. Hopefully we can do it, we've been doing really well.

Picked up my 4set t10, two of which are Sanctified. My mage is now rather nicely geared and puts out some kick ass dps.

I will be so pleased when I get my t10 helm, it looks rockin'.

Sindragosa is the worst fight in the game at the moment.

I think I might hate the LK worse, but Sindragosa annoys me in such a similar manner that it's kind of a toss up. Arthas has the most mind numbingly long/boring Phase 1 I've seen in a while. The only people who might face a challenge in Phase 1 are the tanks and healers, but a couple pally tanks and a good Disc Priest largely trivializes even that. This is followed up by Phase 2, which is a pretty nasty stopper. So, basically, our early LK failures have generally looked like this:

1. Buffs/Preparation/finger pointing. This might take just short of forever.
2. Nearly a full minute of lore bullshit that will get REAL fucking old by the end of the night.
3. A few minutes of boring tank 'n' spank and light add management.
4. 1 minute of phase transition. You're probably still bored at this point, but hey, at least it means Phase 1 is over.
5. Phase 2! Life gets interesting... for about 20 seconds. That's because Defile has two settings: Harmless and Wiping The Raid Because Someone Tunnel Visioned. Go to step 1.

Sindragosa is pretty much the same way. Couple attrition phases, phase 3, wipe, wash, rinse repeat.

Also, more evidence that pallies are probably the best class right now: We roll with 4 of them in our 10 man and only scheduling has kept us from getting farther in heroic ICC10. Any synergy we lose by pally stacking in this case is easily made up by the ability to chain Divine Sacrifice in high damage phases and zerg everything to death with our melee heavy group.

That's too bad, most of the prot paladins I know are pretty open about their OP-ness. For example, our primary offtank (Flynn) passes on everything and wears tons of gear that is sub-optimal from a survivability standpoint, but it doesn't matter because he is probably the best overall WoW player I know and because his class is inherently rather broken atm. He often uses outdated block value gear with strength gems, dps trinkets and an agility DPS axe mainhand and it doesn't matter because he never dies while putting out a surprising amount of DPS (the fact that he mixes tier 9 and tier 10 setpiece bonuses also contributes here). For example, I don't even bother using tranq poisons during the 10 man LK encounter when he tanks the big adds because Flynn can just mitigate away an Enraged shockwave and even if two adds enrage on him he'll just stun one of them anyway. Tankspot says those guys are supposed to be able to nearly one shot people, but apparently Flynn never got the memo.

Flyn is a mage name. Silly paladin.

The dude is someone I know in meatlife, he knows his class is OP but plays the class like he is still doing Ulduar, un-hitcapped, low dodge/block/parry, low armour and is a moron in raids.

Who would you rather have tanking?

http://eu.blizzard.com/maintenance.htm?r=Boulderfist&n=Melville
http://eu.blizzard.com/maintenance.htm?r=Boulderfist&n=Kuruado

Also with this patch I can honestly say...

FUCK ROGUES FUCK SHADOWPRIESTS FUCK HUNTERS FUCK OTHER WARRIORS.

Rogue/Shadowpriest will already beat any warrior comp in 2's and hunters kite like all the time with minimal effort. Why make counter comps counter even harder?

All these classes have at least 1 way already to negate a bladestorm, evasion/turn into a cloud/spinny pointy things round the hunter where you need to /cancelaura bladestorm then overpower spam the shit out of them because they keep dodging.

TSG will die.

Ha, the funniest part is that his gear setup is like, the exact opposite of Flynn's gear style. Flynn is a hardcore avoidance and mitigation tank. He's got stuff in his bags for fights that favor raw health, but as long as he doesn't need to worry about going down in a GCD he stacks avoidance and relies on stacking as much armor as he can for his survivability.

That's the thing, that was Kuru's reputation of stacking avoidance and mitigation. I do this along with staying hit and expertise (soft)capped but still have an asston of EH. Having a blockset or unhittable set is useless in ICC now anyways :( I just got unhittable at the end of TotGC too.

Well, actually, he doesn't run with a single piece of block rating gear, so it's not like he's crazy enough to be using the Anub set for everything. He just has passed on several pieces of gear in favor of using things like the tier 9 helm and legs since they're a couple of weird pieces that happen to give block value with no block rating. So those two pieces alone net him 480 shield block value, 5% increased Hammer of the Righteous damage and nearly a third of his hit rating (he's a draenei so he can always factor the aura in. Besides, what kind of idiot wouldn't give the tank a draenei if they needed it?). If you're going to make a concession to threat and damage in your gear, that's a pretty decent place to do it. Plus, it was a bit disingenuous of me to say that he passes on everything considering that he was rolling in 258 gear even when we first entered ICC. He kinda takes the attitude that he outgears all current content short of 25 man heroic, and since I can't remember him ever causing a wipe, it's rather hard to argue the point.

Only thing I needed from 10 man ICC when it came out was a mainhand. I was fully ToGC geared so I know how he feels, it's not fun shitting on every encounter knowing you won't get anything usable from it and it's gonna get DE'd.

Quit my guild, sick of arena, can't be fucked.

I hear ya. I didn't bother using much ICC gear until I was stuck moving to combat to bring raid buffs. My current ICC set was actually a slight downgrade from my 258 mutilate set until very recently.

The things I am most excited about with the new path? The new vanity pet from the toy shop in dal and that the engineering pets are no longer bind on pickup.

WOO!

Wait what? I can stop fucking running Gnomer and just buy my Bombling? Blizzard, you know just how to make me feel special!
