There's a second hunter in our group, and he obviously hasn't gotten any drops either (though at least he coined the CD-reduction trinket). We've gotten a whole one Protector token, which went to our shaman as he'd coined a set piece earlier to give him 2-set.
(Our DK and holy paladin are pretty well decked-out now, though *laugh*)


We already have 6 Spirits of War rotting in the gbank.


You don't have a LW or tailor who can use those for the extra CD for the crafted gear?

You know, that's what's a little ... unfortunate about those things (and Haunting Spirits and such). The groups that actually get them really don't need them at all - they get drops to equip everyone. :/ The groups that need them (i.e., the 3/12 normal ToT groups) don't get them, or not enough to matter.

And Tera - we'd certainly have that many too if we DE-ed all the DPS plate instead of giving it to the DK-tank for offset (that's not used in raiding at all). *shrug*

The Haunting Spirit and now Spirit of War paradox is just further proof, if any were needed anymore, that Blizzard decision makers are the most active trolls on the entire Interweb.

As is the excuse I got today from an actual real-life Blizzard Prod Support person about why regional transfers are impossible - "The server farms for the US and UK are in different data centres".

Oh wow.. Now it would surely be impossible to tranfer them through the internet? Would it? Its not like the entire game is based around that... Oh wait...

Same thing happens with agi mail once our hunter has it. I get it even though I think I've spent like 5 hours this expansion playing Enhance.

And yeah right now the only thing I'd even make is the caster belt so right now its which comes first: Belt off Spoils or I learn the recipe and have enough hides to make it.

So I guess there is a 1½ hour queue on Silvermoon(EU) today...

I just recently got back into the game and it's already annoying with all the stuff I have missed in MoP and what rep to farm where and such...but seriously, queues? I haven't had queues since vanilla! :P
HUZZAH! How many points do I receive? :D

So I apparently suddenly started sucking at being a hunter when 5.4 released. It's not so much an aggro issue with the turtle, it's infrequent enough I can usually feign death. However, the turtle is getting stomped by the elites. Like, 2 hits with the turtle shell and mend pet, it's dead; if I use the pet version of last stand, it's 3 hits.

It's really bad with the foreboding flames, it's 2 hits, regardless.

Gotta send my 3 month old laptop in for repair with Asus since something is broken and I can't fix it myself.. Techsupport provided an url to the RMA website. Doesn't work. And the website is such a freaking maze that I cant find the correct url myself aswell -.-

Which elites are we talking about?
(Can't remember foreboding flames off the top of my head).
I remember gulp frogs being a particularly nasy surprise (seeing as we don't see their toxin and the pet insta dies when it reaches 10 stacks)
The death adders are easy enough with spirit bond + mend pet.
The rest is just a matter of moving yourself out of the way of telegraphed attacks - the pet should automove to the rear of them.
(In other words, I didn't notice anything but the gulp frogs being annoying - and again, not sure about the foreboding flames)
Main Characters:
Nooska, Blood Elf BM/SV Hunter on Argent Dawn (EU)
Morosin, Bloody freezing orc death knight on Argent Dawn (EU)
Niisca, Shady forsaken "priest" on Argent Dawn (EU)

Foreboding Flames are the little blue fire elementals in the cave just north of the Celestial Court. You need to click on the blue bonfires for a 50% fire damage reduction/resistance.

Those are my particular pet peeve; I can handle the animal elites (snakes and oxen and birds and tigers, oh my), and probably can handle the yaungol (I haven't gone fighting up that way really), but the flames are hell. My roommate uses a direhorn instead of a turtle, and apparently, it's just as bad. (Also, I'm survival and he's beast master.)

On a happy note, my warlock who just hit 90 last night can break out her voidlord and tank them juuuuust fine. :|

Well they're high damage nukes not AoEs so a pet will take significant damage from them.

Check your spell book for Interrupting Shot or whatever. Hunters got a baseline interrupt in 5.4 so use it when needed.
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.

Ha. I hadn't actually noticed until you linked it that the new Hunter interupt was just a copy and paste of Counterspell.

I haven't had any real problems up there, except for the second tier of Yangoul.. many are taunt immune, and will beline for me instead of my pet. I imagine gear does help, as I was having real issues on my lock.

Thanks, Flex, I'll go back and look at my spellbook again. I've been horribly scatterbrained between school, work, warlock, and my mother.

Reached a level of disinterest in the game that has resulted in me activating my Priest's Holy Spec. Nothing good ever happens when I start running as a healer. :(

P.S Wow, Holy mana problems Batman! Is Disc as mana hungry as Holy or is it just my poor spell selection?

Holy is fucking mana hungry man. Back in 5.3 I could run oom as holy with 21k spirit.

Disc on the other hand, you can essentially spam for 7-8 minutes without externals with 12k spirit :P

Our Holy priests seems really good at managing mana while maintaining low overheal.

Takes a bit to l2holy. I could do just fine in 5.3 as holy with 12k mana and not run oom in a 10 min fight.

She's always grumpy when she checks meters in LFR and two atonement spamming disc priests are at the top, and then the boss comes and she's #1 or #2, if one of the disc priests actually knows how to play, with way less overheal.
