So that was a fun day in-game. :(

- 5 characters for Celestials and Ordos. No drops. Used a couple of coins too.

- 2 chars through Flex 1, both still need both caster trinkets (dps bindings, healer prison). Nothing. Didn't get a single drop at all, actually.

- Then the really fun part. Someone puts in trade "Need one DPS for SoO, doing first 6 heroic. 550+, know fights, etc." My shaman is good enough for that, so I jump in. We wipe a couple times on Immerseus (someone lagged out and got Swirled, someone spaced out and got too many stacks, stuff like that), but got it cleanly after that. Bindings drops. Both other caster DPS already have it, so I roll need, and get outrolled by the Resto Druid (for offset), and they all say that it's kosher. After that, I get a whisper that their last core person (who had told them he couldn't make it) had logged on and was it ok if they brought him in.

So now not only did I get gypped out of a great trinket (IMO), I'm now locked and can't run my shaman on normal either this week. Wonderful. :(

Thanks for that spot on post Rhiannon.

But yeah. I talked to the GM about it and while he somewhat agreed that it's not ideal to have 2 of the same tank, he also pointed out that it's a loooong way still until the expansion and it doesn't matter one bit what people play during end of expansion farm. I'll worry about it when we're closer to release. A lot can happen until then.

How appropriately named this achievement is titled: [Going To Need A Bigger Bag]

Oh I'm gonna need a bigger bag alright. A bigger bag to carry to bodies of whatever idiot devs decided this shouldn't be account-wide and be based around rares that have a nonexistent drop rate provided you can even get to them before someone sneezes on them and they die. >:|

Plus for all you know, he'll change his mind based on what happens in the Beta anyway, not to mention your other Plate tank might quit, you might find yourself disgusted with Paladins, and half your raid might shuffle around anyway resulting in more or less Leather/Plate users.

4:23pm on a Friday, I'm out of here.

Well, we most likely can't both play the same thing. I don't have the energy to fight for my spot at the moment. Plus it means we have to go recruit a brewmaster regardless... dick move in my book. We recruited him specifically to play brewmaster.


No reason you can't use two prot paladins. We do it. Admittedly, we don't clear content as quickly as you do either, but we only raid 2 days a week.

Rhiannon's point about loot distribution is a good one, though. In a top 50 guild you're definitely shooting yourself in the foot to run two paladin tanks.

Well with new itemization in 6.0, does it really make a difference if you have 2 palas, or 2 between pala-war-dk tanks?

From an itemization standpoint no. Arguably it isn't much different from now if you don't have any strength DPS. It's more the versatility that you gain by having two different tanks with different mechanics. There are relatively few fights where 2 paladins really break the encounter. There are far more where not having a different tanking class's ability would be a hindrance.

Yep - gear is not the issue; in fact we have way more agility leather users than strength users so having all tanks on that would actually make it easier to gear up (overall). We'll share jewelry regardless.

But yeah... not having a monk will most likely suck. Adding a 4th tank would also suck, because 1 more to gear and ~2 people sitting out all the time.

Frustration of my own:

I have this exact problem:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2029914041
(To clarify: letters h, c and v don't work in chat. They work as hotkeys and everywhere else, just not in the chat. Upper case H C and V works too.)

Can't seem to find any solution. :/
I could swear I've had this issue before, but no recollection of how to fix it.

Tried resetting the chat, running eventtrace and shutting down chatter addon.

EDIT: Fixed. Updated all my addons, working fine now. Must've been some other addon interfering.
EDIT: Now it's broken again. Gonna turn off addons one by one.
EDIT: None of the addons seemed to be the problem. Found this list, went down it one by one:

Random Solutions Culled from the Comments:

(In no particular order. This may not be complete and up-to-date.)

A double-tap of the Windows (or Super) key.
A double-tap of specifically the right Windows key.
Restart the effected application (or Explorer if effected)
Reboot (last resort).
“Detect and Repair” from the Help menu in Outlook (Outlook only)
Press CapsLock and Shift back down to lower case (this is a per letter fix)
Fn key + Windows key may toggle problem on and off.
Region and Language —> Keyboards and Languages —> change keyboards;
delete all keyboards other than your language and delete all instances of “Ink Correction”.
Disable Sticky Keys (Control Panel —> Ease of Access Center —> Make the keyboard easier to use —> Make it easier to type —> uncheck “Turn on Sticky Keys“)
Remove all keyboards from the Device Manager and reboot.
Login to the effected machine via RDP and then return to the machine and login locally.
Laptops may have to use the Widows key on the laptop and not a secondary keyboard.


Pressing Fn key + Windows key seemed to fix it. Doesn't toggle it off and on though. I DUNNO LOL. Least it works, for now.

Bought something this weekend from amazon.

The amazon page said, "order in the next 20 hours and choose 1 day shipping to get it here by Christmas Eve!"

So I paid extra for the one day shipping.

Guess what didn't come in today?

I'm sure.

The money isn't as annoying as not getting the item in time for Christmas though.

No good, I'm usually not home when the carriers attempt to drop off packages...


Maybe I could write them a strongly worded letter instead?

A VERY strongly worded letter?

Shipped via UPS (pronounced OOPS)?

Seems they are having issues this holiday...

In a related note, a camera that I ordered from Amazon with free one day delivery was delivered to the wrong address (delivered by USPS on Sunday). Thankfully the person at that address called me and dropped it off. USPS mixes up our mail every so often..

Women.

And their inability to save their conversations for when they're OFF the toilet.

I do not, in my course of my work day, EVER want to hear a toilet flushing.

Ever.

UGH.
