Hehe, Blizzard really messed up Justice gear this time round. Now they're htofixing all 450 Justice gear, and all the 464 Honor gear, so that they're both all ilevel 458, because people were just ignoring Justice gear and converting JP to Honor for the higher ilevel items.

Not to mention that before the other hotfix (yesterday?) by the time you had the rep and JP to buy JP gear, you didn't need them because you were already doing heroics!

Today's Amusement is fun.

We have a selection of old Head lights for cars. We have so many of them (close to 1000) that we have been selling them in the store for $1.00.

They don't sell fast, so I've started putting them on Ebay. Well, at $1 on ebay, you come close to breaking even if not losing money on a sale, so I priced them at $4, and they start to sell pretty steady. A dozen to two dozen a week, marching out the door. Not bad for an item that is meant for classic 70's muscle cars.

Well, a couple of classic car places have caught on that we are selling them, and they've started buying them in larger quantities off of eBay. 10 here, a dozen here. So I ask the guys if they can sort out the rest of the inventory so I know just how much of each brand we have left.

They finish up, come down, and say We have x of this, and x of that, and then we have 2 of this one we didn't know about, and 7 of this one. We won't bother having you take the time on those, we'll just put them on the floor.

While they are standing there, I look up the one brand (with qty 7) and find that it is an original AC Delco Headlight that fits things like Camaro's, Firebirds, Trans Ams from 1970 - 1981. These things are selling online for close to $200 a set.

That's right. $100 a bulb, and we were going to put them on the shelf for a buck. They are all safely in my office. They will be listed today.

Woah... now I'm even more confused... what happened?

Apparently ES ticks look at your character stats each and every time it ticks, instead of just once at the start. So you can pop a potion after you cast it and it continues to get stronger. So when you cast ES and then get MC'd, you now do 200% more dmg.





also, did a dungeon with wrath from a druid...100k non crits with 170k crits.




and yes, Benebarba....they're casting Execution Sentence then getting Mind Controlled by Sha.

well, sha of anger can mind control players, but when used on a friendly target (or yourself), its supposed to be a heal -- i have no idea how it went from healing the sha to killing him, unless they forgot a behavioral flag for ES while under MC.

<edit>
Oh, I see! The ES was used BEFORE the MC.

/shrug, I dunno

maybe it has to do with the fact that when ES is cast, Sha is an enemy, so it doesn't change when the player gets MC'd.

So, there I was... minding my own business, doing my dailies when a random hunter sends me a tell:

Hunter: "you so dumb"
Me: "Why?"
Hunter: "qand ignorant"
Me: "/shrug"

Still have no idea wtf he was talking about, but it made me chuckle.

I think what really cinched the deal for me, was when they decided that they would report it as theft, instead of dealing with an incompetent employee who let it go.

Oh, you sold him this for too little? Bah! We'll just have him arrested and say that he stole it!

Man... that's just dumb.

Slapping mobs for 100k+ without wings on my ret paladin quite amused me. Also does well to mages in leveling gear while you are running around in crafted pvp gear with a lovely heroic dungeon 2h mace ^^ To bad it didnt work on the shadow priest that also wanted to fuck up me helping worldie with the northrend ring of blood quests. ^^'
