not sure how boston pissed of chechnya, but terrorism doesnt make much sense to begin with...

one dead officer as well

Radicalized kids. Question is, what were they pissed off about, and who were they making a statement for?

back to wow...

Frustrating night last night trying to get LFR done, Nalak done, and grind some VP on the island. Took forever to finally get a Nalak kill (goldfailbag) and spent far too much time just waiting.

Highly annoying that never killed LeiShein as tanks kept leaving on the trash before Lei. Never even pulled him, we one-shot the first two bosses, and both tanks left, and then a procession of 5-6 others left, with other people bailing after waiting, and I finally gave up after 30+ min of waiting for tanks.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the tanks probably ended up on Lei Shen originally, left and then requeued fresh.

With the horror stories I've been hearing (took 5 stacks this morning to kill him in my run) would you stick around for that clusterfuck again for 40 valor and 200g in repairs?

Don't think so based on the comments, at least not all of them. I think some just wanted no part of it. My spriest needs several items from him, so will be going back there for a long time. Hunter just needs a trinket, so that might not be enough of a push to keep me dealing with that fight on two toons, even though the trinket is really good for hunters.

I think Blizz actually kinda screwed us with the 10-minute respawn time on Nalak. By the time Wednesday has passed, seems like all the active mains have done him, and it takes forever to get a group. Similar with Oon now, no one even attempted him last night.

It really depends on which server I'm on at the time with Nalak. On Sarg? Killed him this morning at like 3 am no problem. Stormreaver? It was 7 pm on a Wed and 2 people were sitting there trying to find a group.

Definitely puts kinks in my "farm the mounts on every single character that is capable of landing a spell on the boss whether they're 9 or 90" though. Some of the servers are so dead it's "kill them within an hour of the server coming up with the other 28 people still left on that ghost town or woops better luck next week!"

up to 14.5% hit now. Sword from Council, LFR feather, hit cloak from horridon, random stat bracers from Jin'Rokh (which have hit as the main stat), hit tier tiger helm, hit tier shoulders (i could be wrong).

was hoping to avoid spending anymore valor and save up for upgrades in 5.3...but having 7% overstat hit is killing me. i may just break down and get the shadow-pan bracers and cloak so i can get rid of almost 1k hit.

Yeah, and based on the number of people logged into guild, I think there's a lot of east coasters... man that was frustrating. Only thing that made up for it a bit was a 7-min queue for ToT#2 at 11pm, and wound up with a group that one-shot it. Didn't get loot but at least got it done for the week.

getting burnt out on wow again, down to just doing my farms and that is all

in other news, ended up posting a pretty big rant on FB...waiting to see how many friends get butthurt over it (its about gun control and people showing pictures of the police around boston searching door to door for the other bomber, and claiming that is why they need their penile replacement devices..i mean um firearms)

Just had some stupid bitch tell me on fb that her parents went to buy a pressure cooker today at walmart, and couldn't because they needed a background check.

That could work as a joke about the absurdity of not having gun background checks, depending on source and context. I'm assuming by your posting here that it's not the case here, though. :lol:

I'm going to say no, not in the context of where she posted that in response to.

They are not the only ones cheering; I mentally high fived when I read Klaudandus's post.

The suspect looks almost sweet on the BBC News photo. Only 19, life ahead of him. And he squanders it maiming and killing innocents[1]. I guess this does belong in the frustrations thread.

Still hating Blizzard's xp tuning in Townlong Steppes. My Monk, with double xp buff and full rested, still came just a tiny bit short of level 89 after doing the full Shado-Pan Sha of Hatred questline. Had to backtrack and do the start of the Sumprushes chain to level.

I knew it was bad the other times and I needed to be halfway through 88 before starting Townlong on those, but I didn't think it'd still be a problem on my Monk.

A damage source that is treated with resistances, and thus gets more negative resistances in higher difficulties of the game, but is consistently the hardest resistance to find.

I've been replaying Warcraft 2 again and just started in on Beyond the Dark Portal expansion. I think I'm on the fourth map and it is AWFUL. I've already spent eight hours on the blasted thing and keep having to restart. NEED MORE GOLD. ARGH.

i understand if sumprushes was a horrible chain, but its just annoying when you are summoning/raising his 2 companions...

if you were just a little short, why not run a dungeon?

I didn't say the chain was annoying, just didn't want to have to run all the way across the map for one last quest. I'm not so much complaining about this time as just the fact that Townlong Steppes is the only zone in Pandaria where you can't get a full level by questing there - demonstrated by the fact I completed the majority of the quests and still came short on a toon with 50% xp buff.
