Apparently they changed the DS Raider meta achieve, removing H Spine and H Madness. Logged in tonight to see that I had the achieve, and lo and behold, I had the mount as well. Checked the achieve, and those two were gone.

Wonder what my raid leader will do, since that is what he was pushing for (and since our MT is taking a GW2cation)


Weirdly, I'm not that happy :-/ We're barely at 4/8, and it was clear in my head we weren't meant to get the mount (like all the other Glory of the XXX Raider).

On a global scale, it seems insane that a guild that could barely field 2/7 HM in Firelands could, despite losing three top dps, reach for a Glory mount.
On a more personal scale, that means our intented foray in T11 "relax" achieves might get thrown in the back burner.

But hey, Blizzard's game. Not like I'm going throw a hissy fit over a mount :roll:
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Did they keep the guild experience per quest at 30k (or whatever it was on beta?)

Is DS Normal/Heroic cross-realm enabled?

At the start of the DS, me and a guildy started a new social guild with our alts so we can get some cash and whatever... we usualy had 1million Guild xp's per day, raising to 2million on weekend when we were spamming invitations.

Yesterday my guildy pet new alt leveled from lvl 9 till 19/20... When i left the game he had 3million Guild Xp's won in a afternoon. We won about 40million XP's in 1day...

The lvl85 Daily quests of Tol Barad went from 19k each pre-patch to 60k each. What my friend told me is that his lvl19 was giving the same value for each lvl10-20 quest.

Is anyone having an issue with buying the JP BoE stuff? I'm trying to buy the plate stuff for my paladin, but on my shaman. However, all my shaman sees is the mail stuff.

Well, if I'm guessing right and you don't have Hagara yet, that fight is more of a challenge due to the dispels. Warmaster is still a pain due to the RNG.

Ugh... it also seems that the frost patches have changed.. combine that with the dispells, and.. uggh...

Guessing this is a bug: My graphics settings are marking the highest setting as "Recommended" on every single option. My computer ain't that good.

There is a positioning method we adopted in which the lightning will chain around without anyone moving, provided they are in the right place to begin with. That was pretty much the only way my raid could handle the lightning. I place beacons where the inner lightning rods will drop so people know how to align themselves. Takes 11 to chain it around, so you have to have at least one pet class and everyone has to survive frost. The entire chaining takes about 4-5 seconds.

So...

Sanctified Wrath Vs Holy Avenger.

Our dear egg-head Theck says SW is the better of the two, but im finding HA to be excessivly powerful.
Particularly in those situations where Poop has hit the fan and you need lots of heals fast.

Macro HA + Wings together then spam a rotation like:
CS > WoG > Judge > WoG > CS > WoG > Judge > WoG.
Thats alotta self healing in a short period of time...

Thoughts?

I have no idea where to put this so I'll just chuck this in here. I was having massive fps problems after the patch - it would jump from my normal 60 down to about 13 and stuttering awfully while it was doing so. I just went through the painful process of enabling and disabling every single addon until I found the problem.

Turns out it was TipTac and the version I had from early yesterday (Wednesday) was causing me problems. There was an update later on that night (about 24 hours ago now) and it seems to have resolved the problems I was having.

Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone happened to be having a similar problem and couldn't figure out what it was.

Better for dps, but dps is not our main criterion - Theck says he prefers HA. I agree it does sound good - I hadn't thought of using it to rapid heal via WoG and was thinking of it more as a cooldown for more sustained ShotR, but what you suggest does sound useful. I wonder roughly how much healing you can expect during that short period of time?

Well in an ideal scenario the first WoG you fire off would have the 50% SoR buff, plus 20% from Wings plus whatever Vengeance gives you.
After that you immediately pop HA (HA lasts 18sec, wings 20sec, so they match up nicely)
0sec - CS
1.5sec - WoG
3sec - Judge
4.5sec - WoG
6sec - CS
7.5sec - Wog
9sec - Judge again
10.5 - Wog
12 - CS
13.5 - Wog
15 - Judge
16.5 - Wog
18 - Last CS, but probably not due to latency and being unable to get perfect 1.5sec casts.

So thats (if my thinking is correct) 6 full WoG's in 18sec.
Forgive me if my thinking/calcs are incorrect - doing this at work with not all data at fingertips. :)

[EDIT]Glyph of 4 Wings (aka Glyph of Butterfly) is manditory! :D
