Hey Halabar - you tried AoE-ing anything yet? *laugh*

Blink Strikes is dumb:

(LFR, the two bat-packs before Tortos. Pulled both at once. The #1 damage Pali was the guy tanking them all. Had to rez my pet during that as it drew aggro from EVERYTHING at one point. Did I mention that Blink Strikes + the Beast Cleave buff is dumb?)

I seriously spent like 5 minutes at a target dummy after having my rotation feel super slow when I logged in after the patch. I swear I'd just played my pally too and things felt fine.

I blame my monk :P

Social raiding has never really been about progression...

If social raiding is not about progression why so many people QQ as soon as a boss can't be facerolled by social guilds?


KysenMurrin wrote:All raiding is about progression, except for the very top end of heroic raiding where progression is pretty much guaranteed and it's about the race.


not to dwell on it - but the first thing (the QQ) is unavoidable now. That said, I'm pretty sure blizzard doesn't mind a few tears until they have actual data of unintended roadblocks, or simply decide it's time to remove them (Elegon, Garalon). For the second: I think the emphasis on rate of progression is what differentiates groups. If you have a lot of people who'll bail and go to a faster guild because your social guild isn't progressing fast enough for their tastes, I wouldn't call them social raiders.

That said, I think at some point you can only tune content so much. If a very large percentage of your group can't grasp the fundamental mechanics of a fight even with a few weeks (and presumably a number of attempts each night) of trying, I'd argue that is a strong indicator that your group isn't ready to raid at that level, and if that level is the lowest, then they aren't ready to raid. And frankly, that's gotta happen at some point... there's just too many people in this game for everything to be for everybody.

The idea of having a lower tuned 10 man, but allowing up to 15 people could be a possible solution (should still drop the same amount of loot as a 10 man though, IMO), but I feel like if you do it with 10+ in your group, you should get LFR-level drops (or maybe 1/4 upgraded LFR), while if you do it with 10 or less you should get 2/4 upgraded LFR, just so this doesn't become more widely used as a 'AFK for upgrades' method.

Speaking about amusements:

Tonight I had a dream, where I was in a soccer field, then I clicked a corner flag, and I learned triple specialization.


When I woke up I was like "dafuq did I just dream?"

Wasn't there a datamined triple spec on the 5.3 ptr at some point? Maybe it made it in, and the only way to get it is to click a flag on that game field in the Goblin starting area. And you must have dual spec already.

Yes, I know it's impossible. That's the point.

So you dreamt you could play both offence, defence and keeper? :wink:

Well, in LFR people bitch at one another, whereas in LFG not a single word is said the entire time.

I'm one of those weirdos that at least makes a point to say hi when I start a dungeon.

That's the social side of LFG: "Hi" at the start, "thanks" at the end. ;)
I don't play WoW any more.

I occasionally compliment with people if their performance is particularly good or if their transmog is interesting!

No, in the dream I was clearly my gnome priest and specced my third spec Holy after this.

No clue wtf my gnome was doing in a soccer field with real people.

Those numbers, while big, don't look any bigger than SV AOE-fest, so hopefully big numbers will stay. Those numbers also still aren't bigger than ele shammy AOE-fest either.

I know, it's just hard for a BMer to consider the possibility of doing good AOE.. :D

I haven't tried the AOE yet, I was testing my normal rotation with the changes.

Side note.. hunters need to click off the AoTH buff, and reapply it, to get the buff. I did one whole LFR wing before I realized that I still had the old version of the buff up.

Good... AoE? Huh? What is this language you're speaking?

I dunno - I've seen good numbers from SV and ELE on those before, but nothing near that. Only thing I've ever seen pull 300k+ on those packs are Pali and Monk tanks. *shrug*

Dumb Aside: I need a name for the Pink Flamingo. I'm awful with names and usually just use the in-game ones. Was using the purple flamingo before ("Torranche"), but now I actually have stable space again and can have both colors. The pink one is just "Deviate Plainstrider" or somesuch though so I have to come up with something else for it. :(

Dumb Amusement: Stampede-ing with 5 differently-colored Tallstriders, just for the lulz. Could also do that with all four Portents (Pocket Stone Guards!)
