(Plus I got Juju, which finally filled my last < 522 slot!)

Why does it seem that after about 6 pulls everyone loses concentration? We wiped the first couple times to "learning what stuff looks like", then had a couple pulls get to where all 3 quilen were down. After that though, we couldn't even get back close to there - everyone started to fail at stuff we'd been doing correctly before then (starting to get hit by fire spears, accidently stacking when not supposed to, failing at windstorms, etc).

Does that happen to anyone else too?


It should happen to almost everyone. At that time its time to take a break (at least 5 minutes, preferably 10-15) and get away from the computer screen. Its simple concentration fatigue.

Doing challenge mode Mogushan palace. Have to wait 50 seconds for a potion cooldown. Have to wait 40 seconds for a patrol to go past. Taking out time because we thought "the healer's got to go after this attempt, might as well make silver. Get gold, and are less than 90 seconds above realm best.

First raid in 2 weeks last night. Managed to kill everything we've killed before including our second snakehead kill. Now to see if I can steal/find a 10th for the next two weeks.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

when i started tonight, i didnt plan to play my rogue...
then i got bored and logged, started in winterspring at lvl 50

before i knew it i was 54, and still have rested left
decided to run out of rested

hit 56 and out of reseted, might as well finish the zone
i ended up 57 1/2, in one zone, in just 2 1/2 hrs....all playing a spec i never tried before while leveling a rogue (mut, i normally level as combat)

mid way through, after running past several thorium nodes, i happen to mouse over one and realize i CAN mine it...
so i proceed to work on the zone, mining as i go, and get my mining to BC level so i can start mining fel iron
and i check engineering - crap
in /gchat. anyone have any mithril? none on AH - gets sent 10 stacks of ore and bars...

so between all the thorium i mined, the mithril i was sent, and the run through the zone (and 3 quests in blasted lands to finish off 57)
i went from barely 50, to 3 bars into 58, and from 210 mining to 290, and from 235 engineering to 300....

it was one hell of a night...and i wasnt planning on working on my rogue at all 10 hrs ago lol

For some reason, our research safety courses talk about using a fire extinguisher, but only a few groups actually organize the classes which include actual hands-on training and experience in using those and the low pressure lines we have in our labs. For the most part, you end up with an almost conflicting 'get out and call the pros' and 'if it's little, do what you can' for both spills and fires in those courses.

I find this funny, because at the university I was at, hands-on training was standard for all labs which contained flammable materials or fire/chemical spill hazards. I just wasn't in one, so never got it.

Any rate: the success is actually getting one scheduled for our group... since, you know, being able to confidently use emergency equipment is important.

From what I've heard, Ra'den is much, much easier than Lei Shen. He just does a metric shit ton of damage to the tank (yay vengeance).

It looks quite easy indeed.

But switching to the red ball looks too hard.

I think you just move the boss slightly so that the red ball hits the boss, and then the blue one hits the boss immediately afterwards.
