We kill the first totem and then every 4th totem without anybody going into it. We found that it wasn't worth going down there because there weren't enough (in some cases, any) ghosts to kill and that the dps on the boss was more important at those points.

So:

totem 1: kill
totem 2: group 1
totem 3: group 2
totem 4: group 3
totem 5: kill
totem 6: group 1
totem 7: group 2
totem 8: group 3
totem 9: kill

and so on.

Just bit the bullet and threw another couple of applications. One that is more than a bit daring to Unqualified - Stormrage EU, but hey! Who knows?
If your guild needs another tank on EU-Horde, just ask Joe and Noos for references :-p
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Valor capping several characters is getting tedious.

We killed Whitemane and her lackey so fast that they bugged so got no valor nor credit for having finished the instace...

Although I gotta say it was amusing... from starting the instance to whitemane... it took us about 8-9 mins, maybe even less -- I got lucky that I got paired with a warrior that was doing sustained 130K DPS (150K+ on bosses)

People actually do that?!

I hardly ever completely valor cap my paladin (at least, not before the end of the ID), my druid is lucky to get more than the VP from HoF1+2 and ToES LFR.

I valor cap my two chars every week, but then again, I only got two lvl 90s... screw VP capping on more than that.

Yeah, think I'm not going to bother on more than 2 any more. It takes too much time even with the 50% valor buff.

Valor capping the first is the most tedious.

Its actually quite painless on a second toon that can do all LFRs; Dungeon+scen+LFR = 225 VP if you have the buff, add in an additional 90 VP for the first set of scen+dungeon and you are looking at doing 4 LFR's with a dungeon and scenario while waiting for the queue, leaving you at 990 VP - can be done in an afternoon if you aren't picky about what lfrs you want to do.

Frustration; 16 Lei Shi kills on LFR, using coins on all but 2 attempts (so probably around 20 loot attempts); 2x shoulder token, which isn't even that good (had the 483 shoulders from protectors before that) - I want taht darned gun that they made such a big questline around *sigh*

Blue bow from SM and the Flintlockes on the BMAH went for over 45k last night. No thanks.

Ick, that's no fun. We have a warlock in our guild with a similar story, but even worse as he has 2 possible sha-touched (1h and staff) and can't get either one to drop.

(Aside: the shoulder token is _really_ good if you don't already have the other 4 pieces - 16 second BW is kinda ridiculous... I don't think that one has haste either (unlike the gun :P) so you might be able to dump the set legs (which do) once you get all 5.))

Lei shi just has too much good stuff, unfortunately - gun, shoulder, and trinket. I have 2, never ever going to get the 3rd. *laugh*

Doing my usual round of soloing for mount drops, and hit the 5 instance limit because I went into Firelands on 25 man after it got automatically switched when I did TK. :( Half an hour wait for it to reset.

Of course we get the troll guy on the second pull of the night, easily dispatch Spirit Kings and get some solid attempts in on Elegon. Such is life.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Probably because once pieces fall in place and you get over that bump, you realize you should have done whatever tactic they're using now much earlier.... or maybe he's frustrated at not being frustrated or something...

I dunno.

My mother doesn't know how to ask "am I disturbing" when calling beore launching into an hour long (mostly) monologue about her genealogical research - despite knowing (or at least having been told multiple times) that I cannot retain much information when just getting it via a telephone (need visual stimuli as well) - also insiting on being right about something being strange, despite having quite simple explanations I can tell her.

I've been known to put my mother on speaker phone and continue raiding during an "organ recital" of her various ailments of 30 or more minutes...

Have you tried telling her you can't talk for an hour?

You mean outside when she calls? yeah - the thing is since I "don't do anything" I can easily shuffle around anything I'm doing to accomodate her (in her mind) - playing wow with 9/24 others that depend on me being there isn't "doing something" - neither is preparing for meetings end such.

during the calls, its always just one little thing and then one more - I think my record of trying to end the conversation is 8 times in 1 hour.

The downside is we are a little dependant on her for borrowing her car and such, so the solution of just saying "I can't talk" and hanging up would have repercussions because she gets sore rather easily and does hold a grudge for quite a while (shes rather passive-aggressive about stuff like that - and suddenly we are using the car too much or not returning it fast enough, or not filling it up "by ourselves" - all depsite adhering to the agreements we have made previously and which we haven't changed - till after she does one of those loops.

So yesterday i couldn't raid and i get home about 1 A.M. and proceed to prepare my ofspec as healer since we are now Empress heroic mode 25men...

After respec and starting to gem the gear, i get the following whisper:
"are you leaving also?" So after 3seconds of complete confusion i go to the guild log and check that during one raid night we lost abour 16Core raiders and the raid leader... i'm like WTF...
No only we lost all the Core raiders... but also all my friends left to a newly created guild...
So after 2years and dozens of good experiences i left my guild and got into a 10men... :S

Lets see how much time can i take of 10 men.. (i'm a 25men die-hard)
An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded.

That reminds me of a very similar thing happened to me at the end of Wotlk, seeing the core of the guild leaving all of a sudden right after we had a 12% wipe on LK hc...
Sucks man, I hope you find a suitable guild. I personally couldn't resist more than a month in a 10 men guild, I left as soon as I found a 25 men one that was recruiting my class.
