Yeah, that doesn't jive with what I've seen either. I have had rares spawn in front of me 10-15mins after just killing one in the same zone.

While farming Sulik one day I hit him and had the Yaungol, Jonn-Dar, the fish guy, the flying mantid and the monkey in the mists all pop up multiple times in a row, did not check for the panderan girl or the lizard guy.

I fixed my motehrs computer today - been hanging indefinately on "windows is now starting" log o screen, no amount of repairs would work. Could boot in safe mode but no keyboard support, so no commandline help either. After trying anything I could find as a huint on the internetz, nothing working, I decide to update the bios, just to see, as someone mentioned that somewhere - result the computer continually restarts.
So I try another boot repair, which stops the computer from restartying, and after restarting it a few times after running different scans (no repairs) suddenly the computer starts up. Restarting a few times reconnecingt everything (extra HDD, External HDD, Printer, card reader etc etc) and it still works just like its supposed to.

Why infrustrations? well I just don't do well with stuff that suddenly works without having done anything - I just don't like it, I want to know that I did X and now it works (because of X or some result of X) - and no way will I belive that a BIOS update is enough to suddenly have windows working again when it hung on the initialisation/loading of drivers etc.

My former guild is now completely falling apart, with people leaving on the flimsiest of reasons. It's a bit frustrating to realise the guild only existed because you made it happen, and the center could not hold without you.

At the very least, the core are now pooling contacts to find spots for everyone.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

getting so frustrated at myself making the same mistake over and over on the trash before elegon that I said I'd probably have to step out because I was apparently having a bad night and didn't want to hold the group back... and having the RL for the group I was PUG'ed into freak because of how much time it would take to find a new tank (others were slightly more supportive ;) ).

We finally did get it down (after I basically said I didn't want anyone giving me crap if I couldn't get it in the next 15 mins), but it probably took more attempts than some of the earlier bosses. But from there on out each of the pulls got easier until we one-shot the final group and actually made some good attempts on Elegon.

Our 10-man group has no Bloodlusts.

Another 10-man guild team has 3 shamans, but they'd rather watch us DE all of our mail drops than come over and help.

Bloody cliques.

No shaman, mages or hunters?

That sucks...

Edit: Just thought about our team from this weekend... and 50% are on the same token (3 pallies, 2 priests.)

I believe we had a similar breakdown in t11 (3 priests, 1 pally, 1 lock), but managed to break that up a bit as we progressed into t12 and t13.

A couple of things I noticed:

Big moments for DPS CDs are early on, during 3/4th spark phase and in the final phase (BL then) - we need to get to P2 with 2 protectors, and we have 9 minutes and a half - more than enough for 3 to 4 cycles of CDs.
Gurzog's deaths were also uncalled for.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

We've now had in the region of 60 wipes to Blade Lord Ta'yak. At least 40 of those are down to healers being incapable of dodging cyclones in p2. I'm absolutely frustrated and can barely bring myself to go to another night on that boss, knowing what's in store.

....how?

My god those things move at a snail's pace and in the same pattern the entire time.

Then again people couldn't handle not dying to frogger in Naxx, lava waves that shoot out in the same directions every time on Rag and I'm probably forgetting another two dozen mechanics so I shouldn't be surprised.

Got a 3 day guest pass for GW2.

Logged in and registered saturday morning, and started the mammoth download.
Had to turn computer off after lunch due to massive storms in Brizzy.

Didn't turn it back on until sunday morning, to find that I had to start again with the download - theres a good 20gig wasted.
Finally finished download on sunday arvo, but again had to turn off due to more storms.

Went to work on Monday as per normal, Monday afternoon I finally tried logging into GW2...

Only to find my 3 day trial had expired. Leet.
Im figuring the makers of GW2 really don't want casuals playing.

To be fair, frogger was an exercise in frustration if you had any lag. I'd have some days where I could run directly through the slimes and never die, other days my char wouldn't even come close and would die 4-5 times in a row. Just because you're seeing your character in a certain location doesn't mean the server is registering it.

Now, I realize this doesn't apply to everyone, but it is a factor for some.

1 week after transfer, Armory still not updated.

Since my guild uses Wowstead, I can't read guild forums until armory updates :\

That's a bit bizarre about the armory. I was going to suggest that your guild forces a refresh through the wowstead control panel, but if even the armory hasn't updated that's not going to help at all.

That being said, if it's vital you read their forums, they CAN force a profile through for you that will allow you to read the forums. They just have to confirm that you're allowed to see them. I've only done it on rare exceptions, but it does work.
