Also, I feel Blizz is forcing the casuals to only use one toon, maybe 2 if you have like 5 hours a day to play, and I call BS that doing dailies is optional, how else would you get extra rolls?


There's an EASY way to get extra rolls, without pet battles or other...

Go out to the Isle, kill a rare or find a chest to get the key for the treasure room, do the loot scenario, and you'll get at least 5 or 6 elder charms. I have 2 alts I'm doing exactly this on, and that's the ONLY content those alts are running. Plus your alts get some extra valor from killing the rares. I typically get the key by the 2nd or 3rd rare.

But you are right in another aspect, it's really hard if you are capping valor on a main, to get much time in on alts.

I wish I could only do LFRs, but again, and Blizzard doesn't want to admit, that we must do dailies for an extra chance of loot, I don't know about you but I like 2 chances per boss better than 1 (then bang my keyboard twice LOL)

I think you are missing what I said... the elder charms for the extra rolls can be obtained from the loot scenario, without doing dailies. Each of my alts has 5-6 of them to use this week, and I'm not great in that loot scenario.

He's talking about lesser elder charms to turn into mogu runes of fate for the new tier.

I started doing pet battles simply because grinding 90 lesser charms a week on the three characters I do t15 content on via dailies made me want to break something, especially when none of them have meaningful upgrades from the daily rep.

Well, the extra valor to be gained from the rares is the only reason I'd do Isle dailies, even on my main, once everything is unlocked. Combined with 150 valor each week from the 3-stones quest, that really helps for valor capping.

(However, once my main has all the valor gear he could use, this approach will change dramatically...)

They fully know that, it was designed that way. I point you back to Culhag's post. It is a reward for players who do non-raid stuff. If you want to possibly gear up twice as fast you have to do extra work for it, otherwise you gear up at the normal pace.

I stop doing dailies daily once I hit exalted, so less than two weeks for the new one, and only pick them back up when I get close to a milestone VP point from group content. I'll go through one cycle to get a key because the treasure room is fun.

On my hunter alt I'm just doing rep via the farm, 960 rep a day for almost zero work is fine for me, and dungeon/scenario runs.

Guild 'drama' last night that wasn't actually very dramatic at all, or even really in guild that much.

Trying to do Island dailies before company comes over with my girl, someone out of the blue contacts me asking for a ginvite, saying he just came to our server from Area52. I tell him we don't do blind invites of strangers, we only take applicants and friends of members. He asks to talk to our GM (who's computer is dead and their new computer won't arrive until april). I try to put them off, they nag, I end up calling our GM to ask if there's someone coming from Area52 that they know of (as some of our old guild members moved to Area52 shortly before we moved off Scarlet Crusade, and then their guild kind of fell apart, and they were considering trying to come back to our guild). She has no clue what's going on, tells me to just keep doing what I'm doing.

I inform him as such, and he FINALLY gets to the point, says he was just (a few minutes ago) in a random dungeon with some people from our guild who were making our guild look bad. He names some names, and I tell him I'll investigate. I end up chatting with one of the people he ran with, someone who is pretty honest all in all to get the story.

Turns out, he was in a run with some of our guildies, he was tanking, and ended up blaming them when he pulled extra mobs in Shado-Pan. There was bickering, stuff escalated, and the guildmates eventually had enough of him being a prima-donna tank (I think they finished the run, but they generally refused to heal him or aknowledge his presence at all). When I confront him with this, and mention that he misrepresented himself from the getgo (he was actually from Mal'ganis, not Area52, and he initially presented himself as someone looking for a guild, not someone with an issue with ours), he gets defensive, and then starts whispering insults to random people in the guild.

And my ignore list grows one bigger.

Mind, the guildies could have probably handled it better (just kick the idjit), but tempers are tempers and people will be people. And I'll freely admit I don't have much patience for tanks who aren't able to accept the blame when they do something stupid (everything is not, despite popular belief, the fault of the healers or the dps). I screw up plenty, and I'm willing to admit my mistakes.

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.


Hmmm, was hoping for a free one =p


The 1.2 update to the Apple Podcast app resolved all the reasons why I wouldn't use it.

The biggest change is it'll respect synced podcasts from iTunes. Previously with the Podcast app installed the Music app would disable podcast playback but since the Podcast app didn't support synced iTunes podcasts they just vanished into the nether.

Subscriptions, playlists and playstate appear to sync across devices.

Spitfire Beam no longer increases in damage with each jump, deals a flat 200,000 damage(up from 150,000 damage), and jumps to 99 targets (up from 20 targets).
