Perhaps, but doesn't mean he's wrong though.

Cue the idiot masses claiming that since three guilds in the world have almost finished it that their gaming experience is forever tarnished and their enjoyment of the game is at an all time low since last tier when the same fucking thing happened.

I read the post, and something bothers me every time this comes up: people seem to forget the weeks (?, certainly days) of time these guilds spend on the PTR working on the encounters. If I understand right, that's the norm for these top guilds. Hell, it's part of the reason we have encounter guides and addons like DBM functional the day content is released!

And the fact that they start raiding at 8 am and don't stop until 2 or 3 am, 7 days a week until the place is cleared when the patch goes live.

To add to EA's hurt..

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21842327

More than 10 million people thought to have accounts with Electronic Arts's (EA) Origin game store are at risk from a hack attack that swaps games for malicious code, researchers say.

In lab experiments, the researchers exploited a loophole in the way Origin handles links to games users have downloaded and installed to make it run code that compromised a target machine.

For some reason, I have no problem reading strategies for other instances but I feel like reading up on the Trove of the Thunder King solo loot run is cheating.

That said, I'm slowly coming around to that I should probably do it
:P

Nah, not really. THere are a couple tips that are really important, but beyond that, there's nothing much to know:

A) Gnothi plan: make your plan for the run. Typical plans include "scour the first room clean", "amass Golden Chests" and "Rush to the final boss". All three seem profitable.
B) Eyes up here: a metric crapton of chests are hidden in every hook and cranny of the dungeons. Typical tricks include ledge walking and box climbing, as well as abusing the wind trap to propel yourself over a barrier later on.
C) (never tested myself) Keep your keys close: Apparently, there's a door that can only be opened with one of the Elder Charm keys, to get to the last boss.
D) Fighting is bad, mmkay? Most of the enemies aren't made to kill you, but to slow/annoy you. The Ashen Weavers in particular should be a very high priority, due to their snare.

Gotta say, good to do it on a hunter, since the pet can take care of the small spiders where you don't even notice them.

I want to nominate the following quote from a slashdot comment thread regarding the SC5 debacle for statement of the month:

"This falls into the "pissing on me and telling me it's raining" category. If you're going to piss on me, at least be honest about it. And don't eat asparagus first.
"

People see "cleared X bosses in a day/week" not the "Took hundreds of pulls to clear just boss X."

If I remember correctly the first heroic mode Spine of Deathwing took somewhere north of 400 pulls.

We need to modify it to Number of Attempts to get a good look at it.

for example, it took 400+ kills for heroic spine, but it took us just like 10 pulls to get Jin'Rohk normal (bad example but just pointing out the sheer amount of disparity)

No used games either.

The best Xbox was the first one (with modchip and a huge hard drive of course!).
