You'll probably be levelling in the next expansion as retribution anyway :)

I did the exact same thing, quite frustrating as the weapon just popos up when you kill him. I tickected a GM and they told me to politlely bugger off.

What's worse is that now i'm never likely to see the protection loot since i'll just be winning random BOA wepaons from now on (on normal at least).

As someone has stated, it's likely that you will be leveling as Retri and not as Prot, and usually when tanking stuff the weapon isn't a big concern, so you should in theory be happy you got the ret one ;)

I must admit i formed a run with even higher requirements, i think i asked for 550ilvl and at least 11/14 clear. I don't see a problem with forming a run with requirements that suit the type of raid i'm trying to lead.

I think i levelled from 85-90 as prot but tbh i can't remember. I;ve give the axe to my dk, so it isn't to big a deal tbh, and anyway you can't upgrade the BOA weapons with valor.

There's a really simple way to deal with people wanting normal achieves for Flex:

A)Openraid
B)Oqueue
C)Make your own group

Edit: Also whoever itemized mail caster gear this tier needs to fall down a flight of stairs.

Endless Tank Proving Grounds wipe on wave 59. I've gotten the waves down to a science at this point and about 40 seconds into wave 59 will get me the server record. I have all the necessary cooldowns up and I'm not expecting to have a single issue with this wave.

And then I somehow manage to not get threat an ALL 5 mobs at the spawn. They run to Sikari, I check my Salv and HoP macroes and both are down. I run in, Hammer, grab aggro on 3 of them, and then, boom, Sikari dies and I lose. *sigh* 59 minutes down the drain and I am left incredibly disheartened.

Brutal, i've only given endless a singel attempt, re-doing the waves again and again is just boring.

Quite a chaotic few days in WoW: RL/GM quit WoW, with fragile raid team dissolving as a result (some quitting for more progressed guilds, others losing also interest in WoW). So far, we've patched things together by entering a raid alliance with another guild, and did 7/14 in two join raids over the weekend, which was a success. But my guild is a precarious position and it's hard to see how we can recruit when all we can offer them in the short term is Flex if that.

So during ToT, we had an enhance shaman that was decent, but lacked some raid awareness to the point that he would die to every single boss in some shape, form or fashion. This was so bad, we didn't bring in on any DA, LS or Ra-den attempts until well after the fact of us having them down to an art of being able to carry someone. So this tier, he quit the guild citing that work was interfering with our raid schedule and he left to another guild...so naturally, we recruited another. The new guy was quite good, didn't die nearly as much and was quite good at helping with strats on bosses.

Today I'm afking in shrine, see the recruit log on, and gquit. I'm like, wtf. So I whisper him. Turns out, our GM texted him saying his trial was over. Really confused, I check the guild log because I dimly remember the Gm saying the former shaman was coming back. Sure enough, he's back in the guild as a raider.

Can't double dip bosses. If you got a secret from a boss this week you wont be able to get a runestone from that boss.
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.

Bad-standers make everyone else feel superior about their own abilities. Your GM is doing this for morale.

Highly unlikely, Cdan. It was always incredibly frustrating to see him die, ankh, die again, get brezed, and still die again...all to the same boss.

Another week with 0 drops off of celestials (using bonus roll each time). I'm starting to wonder if protection spec is bugged with drops (like it was for Nalak). It's probably just RNG, but it is frustrating to see nothing but gold x2 every week since 5.4 started.
