The Sha of Violence is a very healing intense fight: if the healer doesn't pull his weight you wipe.

Plus, AoEing the little adds is a terrible idea.

I lagged out a bit at the end on a Sha of Anger kill when a huge group of Alliance tried to gank us and keep us from the kill. No loot. No cache. Because of lag from Open World PVP. Now I need to find another run by tonight, while also spamming people through Heroics to get their BiS for raid Tuesday. (On the bright side I'm getting a lot of practice in for Challenge Modes, and see a half a dozen Golds in my near future.)

And don't even get me started on SkyShards. I'm single-handedly responsible for the annihilation of the Stonebark Trickster and Mogu populations. If I keep this up any longer I'll be paying reparations by T16.

First people ragged on Blizz because there was nothing to do in Cataclysm and it boiled down to "log in Tuesday" and that was it. Now that there's a plethora of things to do in game the complaints are steering in the complete opposite direction. Just pisses me off.


You're missing something. Those aren't the same two sets of people complaining. The guys I know that are bitching about the dailies are the ones who would log on 5 days of the week and gladly grind heroics to gear, but they hate being "required" to login. The other set are the ones who want something to do each day, they have plenty now.

Can't please everyone.

As much of a grind it will be, at least the valor gear is better than in T13. But if you don't need the valor gear, you really only need to grind reps that are needed for your proffs. Unless you are a completionist, and if you're one of those, this expansion is a doozy...

Yeah, we've got a guy who has played *one* toon for the last seven years, and he only made an alt when he had to have it to get boxes for the one rep (the rogue one, can't think of it now).

He's in heaven with all the possibilities other than raiding now.

OK, so I can't quite do multiple toons as easily as I did in Wrath, but, the other changes suit me fine. I've got my first 90, so I'll just proceed from here and have fun.

People complained that there wasn't enough to do in Cata. Now there is and people are complaining about having to actually do something for their gear (GOD FORBID). This game's playerbase is full of lazy mentally challenged people who have no idea what they want other than the fast track to shinies.

My complaint isn't really about the way of getting VP/JP gear (even though I really dislike dailies), but more about the time investment: since dailies are limited, you need several days (weeks?) of work to gear up a character that way. It's just much simple and easier to farm heroics till death than to farm rep.

I'm myself farming reps on main just for the kite mount at the end. I'm fairly sure I won't touch a single rep with alts.

HCs give you 463 gear.
Reputations give you 489 gear.

Sure, it takes days to get there, but the rewards are appealing, especially as you only need to push for exalted for vanity rewards, epics are given at revered, it's probably just over a week of dailies.

Not at all. I believe they nailed exactly what they're going for with reputation.

Quit thinking of reputation gear as being needed for progression group content because it isn't designed that way. Golden Lotus and the other factions there are level 90 questing content for people that want that content and who don't particularly care for group content.

Got into heroic brewery, I couldn't zone it because they started the boss fight before I could zone in (the hammer boss), well I zoned in, we go to the last boss, everything was looking good, during the fight the game glitched and I got sent thru the floor under the boss, I tried to get back there, I couldn't because the boss room door was closed, I standed there taking damage until I died, boss was going down slowly, at about 10% they voted me out... (how the hell can you get voted out during combat???)

Lost a lot of time there and got zero loot, JP or VP for my efforts..

I think you hit the nail on the head. Especially considering the rate at which the rewards become available. If you're a raider the VP gear isn't for you.

Personally the system works for me, i won't need the valor gear however i did open up the JP gear in time for it to feel a gap where i hadn't got a hc drop. I'll grind the reps anyway becuase some of them i actually enjoy (farmville) and the others i want the rewards.

I'm pissed with the mobs...I know i shouldn't QQ with this... but, i got really pissed with the random agro and behaviour...

Minding my own business, doing my quests in the lvl89 area (can't remember the name)... when i see at a distance about 4/5mobs running together in my general direction... they were so far that i thought that they were chasing some poor dude that my pc hadn't yet loaded... I continue my quest when it hit's me:
"Hey shouldn't the player already load? And why are they still running in my direction".

I was 5shoted... i was so surprised that i didn't even bubbled up... then for the last 4days ramdom shiat has happened... respawn rates completly retarded (even for quest items)... Random mob chasing you for half a region...(lvl 90mobs vs lvl90player)... I had a mob chasing me for 100yards, agroeing another 3mobs, the other three mobs quit chasing and the bastard still keeps coming... WTF?

Oh, sure, you'll compete with him, but not with me? :P

As for the reps, I have no idea which rewards I want, but made sure to cap out OotCS, and since it didn't really take much effort, Lorewalkers. Currently working on Golden Lotus (though the achievement for doing all the quests in the Vale confuses me, since I have the final one, but none of the others?)

My biggest problem with some of the reps is that it takes so long to raise them. I'd be perfectly happy running quests non-stop if it meant I could finish them in a few days (see: OotCS, collecting eggs.) Feeling like I need to log in every day to make sure it doesn't take even longer to cap them is what annoys me more than anything.

My excuse for not competing with you anymore is I got lagged behind during the writing of my school paper (that's when you overtook me).

Plus, I don't think you ever logged off since hitting 87. I did. :P

Oh you mean the one where you summon those guys from the pools?

Yeah that's broke on my server as well. Put in a ticket and got a generic "we'll go back to our lab and play around with the squirrels to see if the one powering that quest is stuck in the wheel" response. Not expecting it to be fixed till downtime.

Yeah, that one. The quest npc was sitting midair in front of the three pool-guy thingies, with 1 health, evading ranged attacks, but taking damage with melee (my mage hit him with a staff a la Jaina) and remaining forever at 1 health.

It was great fun when you had 2 Horde and 3 Alliance in a row, just staring at him, pondering the mystery of how he managed to sit like that midair.

LOL

We've just applied a hotfix that removes the faction requirements for Justice gear.

Shado-Pan and August Celestial factions will no longer require Golden Lotus faction to purchase this gear. This will allow players who have reached level 90 to have additional sources of item level (ilevel) 450 gear to progress into the Dungeon Finder Heroic dungeons more readily.

I was either very lucky in getting that one finished before it broke, or somehow completed the zone without it. Though it's possible I sped through the quests a bit too quickly, because I still have no idea which quest you're talking about >.<.

I decided to main switch to monk partly because our other full time tank is a paladin, partly because our tier tokens were quite crowded, and partly for better loot distribution in our raid group generally (and also because I wanted to - I'm not martyring myself here).

Now the other tank doesn't want to raid full time. Our holy paladin has gone casual. Our off-spec holy paladin has switched to dual DPS shaman. Two priests have gone AWOL. We have a new rogue. Our warrior DPS has switched to monk DPS.

So despite my good intentions, we now have ZERO full time raiders wanting tank plate, ZERO use for intellect plate, ONE full time raider on the pally/priest/warlock token (and he has a habit of quitting the game), ONE cloth wearer, FOUR people wanting agility leather and another two on top of that for jewelery, not enough main spec tanks and basically no full time healers.

Looks like I'll be spending another tier healing while off-specs tank.

Designers who think that there are developers to be their personal slaves... "Could you this for me quickly, that for me quickly", "Could you put up the latest version on the ipad". And when you do that, "Oh do it again in 5 minutes, I want to fix a small thing". Gaaah! Wonder if I ever get my work done like this...
