They'll probably be a nice backup if there's a drought of content.


And with all the valor capping and rep grinds, who has time for them?


A good challenge mode group will cap valor faster than any other method.
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.

Yeah gold in Gate which is by far the easiest one could come out to be over 300 valor an hour if you have the group.

That's a real shame. :( I will keep arguing that taking away the option to rep grind in dungeon and funneling everyone into their crappy dailies was a mistake. That way even if you failed to get a gold you still wouldn't be coming out empty handed so people would be more likely to do CMs. A bunch of former guildies have killed Sha Heroic and they are still not doing CMs...

Well for a lot of people the rewards aren't that compelling to be honest. I just really like the xmog stuff but if I was playing any other class aside from maybe a paladin I wouldn't bother. Most of the sets look like hot garbage.

Yeah, now that the in-game map, quest log and minimap have incorporated many of the features that made carbonite awesome for questing, etc. (other mods still do the node-location but not sure about pathing), I found it pretty easy to chuck it. I do use TomTom though, for waypoints and making flying over long distances to regular spots easy. A lot less bloated too.

*sigh*

A lot of my raid group is losing interest in the game lately, been battling to fill the roster. If 5.2 doesn't drag them back, I don't see my raid group lasting too much longer...

Yeah, I stopped with Carbonite as well once Blizz updated, it has enough info. Still use Gatherer for nodes.

ilvl505 top dps warlock randomly leaves 1 day before the patch.

Guild almost dies at ambershaper hc,slowly recuperates to the point of finishing hc progress before 5.2 and then when we started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel,turns it not the exit of this crisis,but the morning train.
Our best dps and only warlock suddenly leaves without notice,bullshitting about depression and feelings that he was betrayed by his irl friends and such ->so he betrays us 1 day before the patch.

I'm gonna poke you to get a bit of perspective here, especially the expression of "bullshitting".
Depression is a serious condition. AFAIK you don't know whats been going on with him and his RL friends, and that WoW - a computer GAME is the thing to stop with is a rational and laudable decision. Also, there is no betrayal of you or anyone else if someone decides to NOT play a GAME anymore/for a while.

Yeah. Depression is also not something to inspire rational behaviour.

I, too, am curious as to how you've arrived at the conclusion that this person is "bullshitting about depression," and what criteria you have used.

Incoming personal rant that will be profane, but I can't post this anywhere else without starting Hatfield's Vs McCoy's 2.0 (Or would it be 3.0, since technically, last year there was a similar blowup?)

My son turned 16 today. SIXTEEN. That's a big fucking deal. His Great Grandparents picked him up after school today, to give him cards, and gush all over him, and all that grandparent shit. They gave him a birthday card from his mom who, despite living with them, couldn't be fucking bothered to make the 30 minute total drive to pick him up from school, drop him off at home, and drive back to their house.

Why? Because she needed to be somewhere else, with her boyfriend. Where was this other place? Oh.... a couple of blocks from the high school. Mind you, this woman has not seen her son on his birthday 7 fucking years in a row now. The first 2? Jail/Prison. The third? Rehab. The fourth? uh....... Jail... I think. Fifth? She was no where to be found. Last year? She asked him to stop by her house, which was a block from the school. TADA! SHE WASN'T HOME! This year? Boyfriend.

All of this, despite the fact that she says she wants to "fix things" with him. She lives a 10 minute fucking drive from my house, with her GODDAMN GRANDPARENTS WHO WOULD FUCKING DRIVE HER ANYWHERE. Does she come? No. Does she call to try and pick him up and do something with him? No. Does she even TRY to have the FUCKING VISITATION THAT THE COURT ORDERED? No. Does she even try to make it to his baseball games? Uh.... Well... Since she's been out of Prison, there was the game that she brought her Sex Offender Boyfriend to that got them both trips to jail, And... then the next season, there were.... 2? games. And uh.... Last Season, there was.... 2 home games.

Yep. Awesome. Stellar. Mother of the Century material right there I tell you.

I got a text message from him, and he tried to play it off, as if it amused him that she wasn't there, and that it was just her living up to her reputation, but I could tell that it hurt him.

I swear to god, I think she was a better mother when she was in prison. At least then, he knew where she was, knew she wasn't getting wasted out of her mind, that she was safe, and her not being there for his birthday was sort of understood.

You know why I'm not worried about my son getting a teenage girl pregnant?

Because his mother is the proof that sometimes, cool girls go batshit fucking crazy.

Following a 15% wipe on Sha heroic last night we went for an extra raid tonight to try to get it before the patch, with some tweaks that should have got us the kill. Of course then our 503 warlock's ISP decided to do early maintenance and he loses his internet an hour into raid, and all we're left with is a 490 shadowpriest trial to take his place. Our best try tonight was 2 minutes longer than our 15% wipe yesterday, and the boss was at 17%. Sigh.

Store your interface and WTF folders in a Dropbox folder. If something goes wrong and your UI gets nuked you can restore previous versions via the Dropbox website.
