It is pretty annoying. Tillers goes faster because there are so many rep sources, but Klaxxi is slooow. There are things Blizz could have made it easier with - Guo-Lai Cache Keys open chests with Golden Lotus rep tokens inside, but they're phased out below Revered; and Dread Amber Shards (250 rep for 20) would be great if the drop rate wasn't so low as to be unfarmable.


Is that why I opened the cache yesterday and found nothing inside?.. that blows.

Klaxxi to honored is fast enough, unless you are a BS not seeing what the real rush is. I got Klaxxi to honored the first day, and I still didn't finish the zone (damn toungeless Mushan)>

Not knowing who is going to be logging back in after MOP's drop and not having a target for when we wanted to start raiding this tier (we're a pretty casual bunch, so I didn't expect to be raiding week 1 or even 2 - but we haven't even done guild 5-mans yet).

For raids, I get it. But for dungeons? I don't think I've ever looked up a dungeon strat before going in. Not like it matters anyway - shit's too easy.


I'm just a bit OCD for those things :-p

Hell I just read the entire Journal for MoP dungeons while our mailboxes are compacting (9Go mailbox ahoy \o/)


I am too - it's what makes new dungeons so annoying at first for me: 1) I want to know the basics before going in and 2) I have given up LFD pugging (and we'll see if I ever tank an LFR run). So by the time I can get people together, I've either got to convince them to do a specific dungeon (no RDF loot), try to memorize all of the basic strats for all the available dungeons or look it up when we zone in and make people wait.

Hey, Blizzard decided along time ago that US servers appearently need all the support they can get in order to secure World Firsts, even if it includes postponing non-US patches/fixes/updates.

/sarcasm off

that statement is a joke, and we like it cause while it's not true at all, us guilds still don't manage.
my frustration this time is (just like before) blizzards inability to be consistant.
I know people give us crap for the lfr deal, but having killed bosses multiple times the first week, that's ok? without giving the others the same opportunity.

They're just trying to add some realism. You know, with how real life is all grindy and unfair - so that when you come home from work/school and the media stops peppering you with the grim injustices of the world, you can continue your mortal toils in-game! Next patch will include a voting system where the players vote on who gets the world firsts.

Yeah, Honored is fast - you get it from finishing the zone. Revered is not. BS gets nothing special above Honored, so dunno what you mean there, but I'm still after unlocknig the valor legs and belts, and the scorpion mount...

It's also possible that someone looted the chest before I did. There was someone there killing the spider, and the chest did not despawn for another 3 or so minutes.

His kind of idiots are easily solved. The next time he becomes ill,diagnosed with cancer and such, refuse treatment and tell him to pray to his savior instead.

May be transferring servers, which is sad, because I've been on Blackrock since the beginning.

Sorry to hear that (I felt the same way when I considered transferring servers to raid). Whole guild moving?

From what I hear, my server may not even have an active 25 guild anymore (at least alliance side), let alone one with any sort of fast progression.

Yeah, the guild is discussing moving. As in, possibly as early as tomorrow, though we'll probably wait until Tuesday. We're literally the only alliance raiding guild left. At all. Recruitment is pretty bad as a result.

Hydrophobia. I just cannot do it. I have never had trouble jumping in this game (never ever failed on Thaddius) but this achievement is just impossible for me for some reason. Didn't help that I accidentally ran into a warlock portal placed inside the water last attempt either. GAH!

Trick is not going in melee range at all and running around there. It's easier to avoid water in the outer circles.
