Well, technically it was the Shaman with 600k HP(!? Since when did casters need that much HP?)that was doing all the ganking while Theck was probably alt-tabbed calculating their odds of victory(The number was pretty high).

Unfortunately for Theck's Shaman buddy, I killed him/her with my ultimate attack and departed the Island.

Guess I can just hang around doing nothing in the Shrine instead.


I like to kite those people to the area with the Ordos priests, and then stun them in front of the fiery cleaves. They lose their buff, and get a repair bill.

Don't you have to be flagged on the Isle to be attacked by those people? And if you do, and you are, shouldn't you expect to be attacked?

(Or maybe I just have an incredibly nice server...)

you do, and i agree..on both accounts...

i have been ganked WAY more on terenas than i ever was on SC (but iirc SC is balanced faction wise, where as terenas is fairly heavily alliance favored)

Did something change? I remember the moment you're flagged into pvp combat, you don't take dur loss from dying to a mob.

Very annoyed by the fact that it's impossible to have a shared gear for Holy or Disc.

Spirit heavy gear for Holy? Can't get below 99% mana as disc.

Crit or Mastery heavy gear for Disc? Holy does shit HPS in order to not run oom, or does strong HPS but runs oom within 3 minutes.

Yes and it's Tichondrius so we're always flagged. But I'm still always terrible at PvP, so I tend to either run away or let them kill me.

I was posting out of mock frustration, but mainly because it was a Theck sighting.

My frustration: learning that there are random items throughout the Isle of Thunder that use up those blue collection items (I forget the name, but Taran Zhu wants you to collect 3 for a quest) to summon a boss of some sort. This wouldn't have been a frustration if it didn't just do so automatically by you clicking on it and warned you that you were about to use up the items... instead of completing Taran's quest... I'm now down 3 of those items and up 1 death...



Isle of Thunder

That's your problem. Go to the Timeless Isle.

I re-upped to experience the content I haven't experienced... this includes Isle of Thunder. So telling me to skip it and move on is pointless.

So shouldn't your frustration have been that you didn't kill Theck before heading to safety?

Or did you...? :mrgreen:

It's just stamina on gear btw, in T16ish gear you easily reach 600k hp unbuffed (I run 580k ub myself in ToT hc gear actually on my priest)

It isn't hard... with exception to the previous gripe, in which more gear wouldn't help. I'm pretty sure the mini-bosses aren't soloable by a priest.

When they came out, and people were running around in 490-510 gear, they were 4-5 man group content.

I thought I recognized that name.

Yeah, Xidri (the mage) was finishing up his 10k coins achievement, so I joined the group to help. Given the number of times horde has blatantly ganked me while AFK at the Celestial Court, I don't feel too bad about it.

If it helps, we were generally not re-ganking anyone with the debuff unless they tried to keep tunneling us (and weren't killing Alliance at all). And Xidri got his achievement, so we probably won't be doing it again. I'm not sure I have the patience to farm the 500(?) coins for the mushan mount.
