i would love it if you got to say revered honored with a faction, and you had an option to get a tabard to get some rep from dungeons, a little less from scenarios, but the best way to get it was still dailies, and keep dailies as the only way to get lesser charms

This makes absolutely no sense.

So you're basically saying you wouldn't support it just because you play one toon and thus would get nothing out of it? That's pretty dumb.

If you play one character then congratulations.. you don't ever have to put up with this inane bullshit. That in itself should be the reward.


Where did I say that I didn't think there should be some BOA nature to it? Or that there *shouldn't* be some other benefit to people with multiple toons. I didn't support the idea because it *only* helped people with multiple toons.

I'll be sure to spell out explicitly any thoughts I have, so as to avoid any confusion next time. ;)

Prot pally in heirlooms... Don't need quests, don't need LFD... Just solo everything.
From Ramps to Gundrak there seems to be very little that can really hurt me. (First boss in Gundrak can be a lil tricky)
Burn through packs pretty quickly, get insane exp and don't have to deal with the seething stupidity in LFD nowerdays.
Also solo'ed ring of blood and the LK version (Ampithetre of Anguish?).

As I have subsequently found, this "Keeping myself alive" practice has improved tanking on my main.
Got a better and instinctive feel for the rotation now.

Realised that if I used the 463 mace my cs and hotr would hit so much harder. Thus a legitimate tank set was born. Strength weapons are too mainstream.

Mage got up to 89 now, and after a day of dungeon rushing, got my paladin up from 34 to 44. Ran dungeons together with my gf's new priest, and I think we ran into the same "random" people like 4 times. (Who loved the speed with wich I was tanking, but hated the dps I was doing since I was leaving them far behind ^^ )

6/6 HoF last night. 1 shot windlord/ambershaper(which was still progression, we just switched from 2 healing to 3). Then proceeded to kill Empress in 6 tries.

Went back to MV and 2 shot Garajal HC, which puts us to 3/6 HC. Fingers crossed for Elegon HC tonight. All in all a pretty good week.

Eh I got most of what I wanted from them. Some of them are absolutely dumb to me and a waste of bag space so I'm not bothering to farm them repeatedly.

Found a solution to the tank problem - got one of our monk dps to fill in as tank untill we get the 3rd one (if we get a third one ofc). now its just figuring out how to fix the healers (I mean we have 6 for a 10 man - even discounting one that is there with low possible attendance, it should be enuogh for a 2/3 raids available).

Also this. The only one I would have really thought about farming would be the Bottled Tornado or whatever just so I could completely cheat the AC Torch daily with my glider but I'm already exalted so it's whatever.

I did keep the cool stuff like the mirror because I'm a sucker for transformation items. Wish I got Krastinov's Bag of Horrors on my main and not my DK but it's pretty funny when some idiot goes "LOL LOOK AT THIS NUB DW BLOOD TANKING" and the entire group buries them in insults.

Got 4/6 MSV this weekend, and the group I was with decided to do some attempts on Zor'lock because the RL thought it would be easier than Elegon. We were only able to make it into the 4th phase once (most of the raid was down at that point) before calling it quits... but we'd done garajal and spirit kings earlier that night, so it wasn't all bad. All in all, walked away with some pre-nerfed/pre-outgearing (for me anyway - others may have) raid experience and 3 upgrades (yay bonus rolls).

accompanying frustration: not being able to perform as well as was apparently expected right out of the gate. As a PUG, I didn't really know any of the people but it seemed like a few expected me to be able to one-shot all the mechanics after only seeing the MSV fights once in LFR. The RL seemed downright offended when I asked people to not smack Zor'Lock before I got onto the platform if they wanted to survive, because I couldn't actually do anything (aside from maybe 2/3 ranged hits on pull) until I got up there.

You should ask him if he'd be more offended that you'd have to wipe 12 times from running out of battle rezs for idiots who can't understand "he hits whoever is standing next to him the second he lands"

Zor'lock probably is easier than elegon. Things to succeed on this fight:
1. As you mentioned, don't get on the platform before the tank (this includes pets)
2. On attenuation melee need to be at the edge of the hit box, and to dodge the rings we found it best to run in the direction of the spiral, and then cut back in if you start getting close-ish to a wall.
3. Have a predetermined healer CD rotation for force and verve platform, and decide who goes into which bubble (since each only shields 4 people).
4. MC is pretty tame, however, in final phase they need to be broken out immediately or they might die to the other 2 abilities.
5. phase 4, people need to be using defensive CDs on force and verve and fall back to the predetermined healer CD rotation.
