The OP post? probably. A bunch of the others posts are about the graphics rather than the mechanic.

Oh? Did something change for BM? If so, mind throwing an update into the thread in Other Specs for it?


Naah, nothing changed really - the closest we get is that the trinket that consolidates your secondary stats makes haste better than it used to be (and may warrant haste stacking), but there are 2 (or is it 3) people arguing that that is reason to stack haste, and its haste thats valuable (and misssing that its the slight fact that you get an increased PPM for the same secondary budget, but the actual value is the highest secondary (crit usually) that contributes).
And yes, the increase PPM can be a reason to stack haste over mastery when you have the trinket, but noone presented analysis, just SimC or FD numbers that show an increase in DPS when you add haste (duh!), and the same numbers tills howing adding crit or mastery is better (and 50/50 crit/mastery combination the best).

And then when I responded to a few of the points stating why I though my analysis is right, it gets "personal" (well not completely personal - somewhere between "Responding to Tone" and "Ad Hominem", with a little degradation to "name-Calling", but in a "higher class" version than just the given example in the disagreement hierarchy;

- Receive bad instructions
- Follow instructions
- Get told the instructions were wrong and that some files might have been compromised
- Reply with "I was just following orders! Hey, it worked for the nazis for a while"
- Get boss to raise an eyebrow before starting to laugh.

Still frustration because I still get to clean that mess.

Hmm. Went and looked at the thread yesterday. There's a bit of "talking past each other" going on at the moment - they're all talking about SimCraft runs, where the shot rotation/priority is different than what's listed in the main post. (The 6-second "mini-rotations".)

SimC is still using a strict priority system. From what I can tell, it'll start a new Cobra even with 0.5 left before KC's ready, which doesn't seem right.

I think they (the haste supporters) need to challenge the listed priority first, then they can use their results. I don't think I've ever seen anything simulating the "mini-rotations".

Related Frustration: Maybe the priorities are just better. I had a horrible target-dummy run yesterday on mine (compared to SimC). Maybe I left something in SimC related to buffs and such, but I don't think so. Will have to try again tonight. :(

That's funny, I was just thinking how inspired the addition was.

I haven't tried Durumu yet but on Ji-Kun, it really does seem to help keep the group goodnatured and persevering after multiple wipes, with no one leaving or bad mouthing others. (Most recently, this was a group that wiped to Tortos's enrage with no prior deaths, so I think we really did need the buff.)

My frustration is Oondasta.

The fight works when people play the dumbest - get a couple of 40 person raids, the more the better, drag him down to the beach and GY zerg him. People stack close together. No one watches aggro. There is no tank coordination. Or coordination of any kind. We even had a hunter over-aggro the kiting tank, so that a frill blast killed half the raid on the pull, and still the boss died in a one shot. He probably scored 160+ kills dying, but who's counting?

By contrast, try to do the fight the "proper" way - with a group of 40, up top, asking people to spread out and it just fails due to poor implementation or lack of throughput. First time, we actually did it that way - with only about 3 deaths - but it took 3 wipes. Second time, three wipes and group disbanded. (I blame the healers - only 5 and don't know what they were doing; certainly not making sure I was at full health for the first frill blast; even with GoAK and DivProt popped, I still dropped).

I guess it's just asking too much of a randomly gathered PUG to do (half of) what Blizzard planned for heroic raiders to do. But the fight just offends my ordered sensibilities. It makes your typical LFR look like grandmaster chess.

So one of our best players has just been MIA for 3 days now. No one knows where he is and we have no means of contacting him. I hope he didn't die or something. :S

We're also royally screwed for any sort of progress requiring less than 3 healers.

THere was this one time on LK progression where I broke a shoulder in Rugby and didn't think of/wasn't able to post on forums for a few days.

I'm told they tried combing through obituaries near the end.

You were progressing on LK and didn't think to let your guild know? Am I the only one that thinks that's weird?

We had a few healers totally disappear off the face of the earth last expansion. They're still in guild... they just never logged back on...

I was in a hospital with no access to internet for a few days and didn't think of posting as a thing I needed to demand :P
It did cross my mind, there just wasn't really a drive to make a scene.

I got to phone people, but at the time I didn't know guildies' numbers (NZ --> US had little reason to share).

In the old guilds I've been in, people would just NEVER remove people. I think it took hitting the 400 or whatever limit that stops them showing up in Guild UI to catalyse a cleanup.

It doesn't help that there's enough going on to start an epic lag fest for half the people. In addition to do the fight the "right" way it is a real test of dps, healing and luck with threat.

Also, with the individual loot, why would you want to limit it to 40, when you might have others to gear up? (Not that gear actually drops from Oon, I firmly believe all those people linking loot after a kill are lying).

My guild is actually getting a bit of a bad name on the server with some people for not 'sharing' the kills with the rest of the server, allthough it's not as big a deal with the changes to the respawn time.

What I find amusing is that one of the name callers even admits at 'normal' gear levels mastery still is on top, but they are so wrapped up in BiS stat rankings that they don't see that. All the arguments about weapon dps vs RAP should support that, but they stick to BiS Sims.

It's like car guys arguing about fuel injection systems for quarter-mile times when they are driving a Prius in bumper-to-bumper traffic in rush-hour.

That is stupid, even before joining ctr, i was getting kills on that server without problems...

Ctr is getting a bad name because it brought tons of new ppl into a previously tight knit community.

Haters gonna hate.

Yeah this is the scary part, he ALWAYS posts when he's not going to make it. Makes us think something really serious happened. Still no word form him. :/

Actually seeing loot wins from LFR in the guild news feeds makes it look like no.
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.

Being MT in my progression guild in wrath pushed me to actually share RL contact info with the other officers of the guild.

We were a guild that actually used real names rather than toon names though, so there wasn't any of the awkward "Uh hello, is Morrisbaker there? Yeah, it's Chunes, Imma be late tonight, just fyi".

I didn't know it at the time, but a couple of the guys from that guild would become really good friends of mine outside of the game (across state lines even) and a few of them actually came to my wedding a few years back.

The new wendy's flatbread chicken sandwich is the biggest joke when compared to the commercials. Don't think I've ever been this disappointed. Saw it was 410 calories, had some extra after a light lunch, and thought "Man, that thing looked good".

Not only is it obviously not made as well as the commercial (never thought it would be) it's significantly smaller.

Oh well. I'm finding as I spend more time away from fast food, I don't miss it, and it's never as good as I remember it. 26 pounds down, and I'm feeling good.
