*shrug*

There's just so much weighting to count participation levels that unlocking is a steady process that never goes too fast or too slow. We were at 19% or so Participation last night and really close to unlocking phase 4. Like I said earlier it is a shell game, or a thermostat that lets you push buttons to change numbers but doesn't actually change the temperature.

I still want to know how "my rng sucks" is an excuse to not spend 5 min a week afking on a world boss for potential loot.

I mean I thought I was lazy...

It's Flex, remember? If Klaud is the Element of Hyperbole, Flex's the Element of whining complaining.

If this is in relation to the RNG for world boss loot that was Halabar saying that not me.

He's awful at it. It's taken me years to read his posts and just ignore them, lest the rage build up inside.

And it's not a knack! He works at it!

Punch Sagara, I will pay you the going rate. Can you send Ami a lit bomb as well for me? Make sure it is gift wrapped.

Klaud won't send me a bomb. I'd just punt it right back. :D

So, did I ever tell you about my panda monk? She's Mistweaver/Windwalker, but I haaaaaaate Windwalker.

She also thinks you're pretty cute, and wants to have some Special Snuggle Time with you, Bara.

Never said I wasn't going to do a world boss. You are mistaking that with me not wanting to bust my ass on dailies to unlock said boss a week earlier (if that is even possible) or even a day earlier. Let all the BS's unlock all that shit.

Realizing I'm a BS and have stopped doing dailies is making me slightly uncomfortable in this thread. Guess I'll get back to doing them on my alt. Argh.

I'm not sure you actually unlock it slower or faster by not doing them if you don't go to the island. May only slow it down if you visit it and don't do anything.

Besides, the mob that gives the new recipe is already available - Itoka, he's called.

Well considering doing ONE daily is considered participation for your entire account "busting your ass" isn't necessary. You could do one or one million dailies on your account and that meter wouldn't move a tick farther.

Kill Itoka, loot the quest starter item, run over to the forge and open the door = unlock the thunderforge. A pity I was a weaponmaster in old wow and made the Lionheart blades ages ago or I might have been more excited by the Reborn stuff.

I "discovered" some PVP 463 crappy shoulders pattern when doing my first ingot. I managed to contain my excitement.

Ended up killing him like 3 times last night. Have two lightning steel ingots at the moment. Discovered DK pvp shoulders...which is awesome since i'm ret so right into the AH.

i'm just hoping for some of those fel-edged axe things from BC...could never get that pattern to drop.

Second frustration...the lady that walks past my desk and moments later i smell really, really bad perfume. it's like a sonic boom of patchouli. i thought i left that god-awful smell behind in college...afraid it's followed me nearly 20 years later.

It's not actually the lady. It's been following you, to say 'Hi' and catch up.

A while back (like 10 years) bit into one only to find out it had some sort of funky mold that had taken over the inside. I've been off unsliced apples ever since.
