Has anyone else been downloading small patches just about every day?

Yup. And it wipes my game cache every time, which I notice because ever since patch 5.0 my game takes forever to load loot windows if an item isn't in my cache (I lost a few "lost treasures" to this at launch, they despawn if you move without looting).

I use Downcast, syncs its status across various devices which is nice and has location based updating, so it'll update itself when you arrive at work or leave the house. Haven't had a real issue with the latest releases of the Podcast app but I use the extra features of Downcast.

Feedly says they will migrate existing users to their new backend when it goes live before Google Reader shuts down.


It costs $30 and they don't even host it? :P No way to try before I buy?


Well I can vouch that it does what it says it does. Plunked down the $30 on it since I have a server I use.

NINETY minutes to get into an LFR, as DPS, and with still 4 DPS spots to fill, I don't get it, this was for a fresh run, after waiting an hour beforehand for a last boss run, so that's 2 hours and a half of waiting just to enter the raid, not counting all the wipes, and tons of trash to kill..

C'mon this is WEEK ONE of the LFR, where are the players? also where are the Island of Thunder participation? we are down to 35% participation and completion towards next gate is slow (it's like 1% every 4 hours now)

All is left is a pack of hundred warlocks hunting rares and killing them as fast as they can, not giving the other classes a chance to even see the mob alive..

Well, they wanted to disincentivize LFR for heroic raiders.

From my understanding of the tweets participation works as follows:
When you go to the island you get counted as able to participate. Don't visit the island and you aren't not contributing.
To count towards participating you need to do one quest and you are a full participant.
Doing more quests doesn't offer any benefit towards unlocking island stages faster.
There's some weighting based on realm population and other factors as well.

Indeed, but people just go there to kill the rares, they don't bother to do a single quest, maybe some motivation, if you participated doing one quest you have a slight chance of getting something else, say the Lock Book in the final quest?

Well the box from the final quest can contain all sorts of good stuff - keys, stones, rep tokens for both the daily and raid factions...

Which is funny because LFR will become the dumpster LFD used to be since there will be next to no competent players to carry the absolute dregs of this game to their precious shinies.
