My current? My own damn fault I stayed up until 230am to hit level 90, because ^he^ brought out my competitive nature.

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...

I couldn't hit the i463 "required to raid or GTFO", the drops weren't just there, ran tons of heroics, like 4 different bosses drop a leather agi chest, WTF? several bosses don't drop anything for me, still several slots to fill, I bought some JP gear, still i450, but not getting close to i463.

Will try to do some more heroics before raid time, hopefully something will drop, oh and BTW and haven't seen any epic drop for anyone yet from the last boss of each dungeon.

Meh, considering the prices, it doesn't make much difference anyway. Most people can only buy 1 item.

Point there, but I can't help but to be amused how they did not see this coming.

During my keg run for the brewfest daily's, my dog ran around and was being annoying. Had to get him back, and with the other daily done, I ended up at 198 marks... And since there are just about 2 persons around when the dark iron dwarves attack, I am still at 2 marks short of my brewmaster title...

Balls.

Big list of quest and item hotfixes today... no mention of fixing it so people who lost the Tongue of Ba-Shon can complete Kun Lai Summit.

(Doubly irritating not just for the quests, but because the last item I need for Lorewalkers Exalted is phased out until I complete one more quest.)

After two days of playing, still stuck at 85. (4 hours total)

Of course, it's understandable that my pregnant wife is tired fast, but I'm itching to just "one more hour".
Trying to level up an alt to our point in the quests to "free" my main.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Managed to get to i456, got ONE drop out of 10 heroics ran before raid time, was able to amass enough JPs to buy some bracers from JP vendor (oh and the i456 was because of the hotfix that converted my i450s to i458s)..

But still, I wasn't even considered for the raid team, I was ready, fully enchanted and gemmed, pots and flasks ready, fight studied.. they didn't even mentioned me at all when raid invites were going on..

IDK but we were 10, some guy came out of nowhere, must have been a GM's buddy, he even got a MONK to 90 before me and i463 very quick, I think he played like 16 hours a day for that..

Anyway I was really hoping to start fresh on the guild and raid, but I wasn't even on bench status... time to look for another guild... perhaps a 25 man one, at least there's more chances to get in the raid..

So... I do a full AoE rotation on trash, monk jumps in, presses one button and he's MILES ahead on threat on ALL mobs. So that's trash tanking for paladin tanks in MoP? Just... sit in the corner and wait for better tanks to do it?

According to the hotfix, and the bluepost on it, yes.

I thought the nerf was only to SOT and censure, not SOR which is the AOE seal. AS and HW got buffed, as well.

HW's damage is diminished by the fact that it's inversely proportional to the number of mobs you're hitting. Really good when you're hitting a single target, not so much when you're hitting 3 or more.

Would rather have HotR go up, and perhaps have Cons tick from the moment it lands? maybe?

I think I'd rather them just fix vengence to something not dumb and only do minor balance tweaks to abilities ;)
