Persuaded 4 guildees to group up and then 35 more of my closest realm friends (if by friends you mean anyone in Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Kun Lai Summit) to go kill Sha of Anger for the first time.

I then watched my FPS plummet to 2 and tried to heal.

People were dying and much hilarity ensued but I think we all had a good time especially when he fell over. While I couldn't comment on the actual fight as I couldn't do much with 2 fps, I enjoyed the feeling of being outside smacking on a world boss.

Galleon, you're next!

Opened up a two-pack Starburst from the candie jar on my boss's desk and DIDN'T get a yellow one.

Pretty sure this is a clear sign I should play the lotto tonight.

Exalted Klaxxi. Exalted Anglers. More stuff I no longer "have" to do. Revered Shado-Pan and Celestials. Tomorrow will be Exalted Golden Lotus.

How are you revered with celestials and shado-pan? I've done the dailies since day 2 of the xpac and all the quests related to those reputations, and I'm still quite a few days away from revered.

Yeah, that fight, especially at the beginning, since Blizz's way of making things interesting is to give everyone 12 cooldowns to stack at once, makes me go to 2fps or less for the first 30 seconds..

Last night I did it, I was supposed to heal but they pulled before I changed specs, but it wouldn't matter as I would have no way of healing with what the fps was.. so I just hit Halo every 40 sec.

*shrug*

Celestials I managed to fit a bunch of the Crane ones in before they hot fixed it to not be every day so I am ahead of where I should be there. Shado-Pan you can get to almost Honored with by just questing in Kun-Lai and Townlong.

I've completed all the quests in those zones and I was either just about to hit friendly or just past it with shado-pan.

That's odd. I started late thanks to a vacation, so I have yet to hit revered with Golden Lotus.

I'm honored (only ~400 in iirc) with Shado-Pan without having done a single daily and only using one peace pipe. Without the pipe I'd be at the cusp of Friendly/Honored.

I was just about Honored before I unlocked Shado-Pan dailies. I hit revered today - I missed a few days of Golden Lotus early on, so am a bit behind.

Stepped out of the Vale to farm some quick mobs for my Wikky's Whistle and I come back to someone killing Urgolax. I asked if they'd invite me and they didn't say a word, but they died because they're terrible. I invited them after they rezzed since it became my kill and I finished Glorious! aw yiss

I was a little amused they needed both the drops though. You won't invite me, you die, but you'll take the loot from me after I'm nice enough to invite you.

No good deed goes unpunished.
Specially around the daily areas.

I run as Ret with RF on so I keep aggro over my Wife who plays as a priest and I have had numerous people tag mobs then drag them into my AoE so that I get threat, then they run off to kill other things. Or wait until I attack something then run in to loot the quest item underneath the mob.

I've had people do that to me too when I'm swiping a big group, but I just shadowmeld and watch them die/get in one hit and go kill more mobs like they did to me.

Or the trillium node from under the mob I just Repented...
Seriously, you feel it's early x-pack - the asshats are out in force.

Success: the hit/exp cap is almost reached - I just need the valor shoulders and I'll be done on that side. I also realised that even though they're mostly equal in value, you need so much expertise you should mostly focus on exp/something stuff, and reforge to hit if necessary.

I dont see any difference with late cata tbh :p

My success: Took me "only" 10 runs to get the strength ring from Headless Horseman. Now for the helm... Bets are open.

My monk gearing has gone pretty well!

In two days my lovely GM has crafted me the epic chest and gives, I got the HH ring in the second attempt, quest reward boots from Sha, heroic upgrades for back, ring, both weapons and belt... then into LFR for a weapon upgrade and nice legs too.

Hit and (soft) expertise capped and now pumping up haste. Glad I won't be being carried in Sunday's raid, in gear terms at least.

I've actually given up trying for rares and the associated achievements. On my server, it seems like 90s are out camping them (you go leet dude, taking out a rare 4 levels below you. :roll: ) and not interested in folks asking for an invite to help out.

Only ones being camped on my server are the ones with useful drops.. (peace pipe, fishing trinket, etc)

Gratz. Did you use "the turtle trick" or get the tokens by normal methods.

Guildie of mine has farmed hundreds of stacks of turtles in the last two days... A little ridiculous but I'm not going to complain as he has bought the guild tons of the rice/pepper/soy sauce and made enough feasts for at least this entire tier of raiding for those who don't want to grind the mats for the 300(450) food with the tokens from the repeatable. Also as a side effect there are enough leg enchants probably for the rest of the tier and hundreds of golden lotus for flasks from the spirits and leather collected while farming the turtle meat.

In before respawn or huge drop rate nerf.
