Might be trolls, but I'm used to see similar requirements. I often see 550+ required for Flex 4 (sometimes 560) and always at least 560 for normal.
Considering normal drops 553, I'm not sure why I need higher ilvl than the drops in the istance to join it.

So that we can boost whoever's doing the recruiting *and* let them get all the drops.

Sure the second two aren't just trolling the first?


Sadly no, these were some of the most noticeable in a 10 minutes window of /2 filled with LFM, LGF, vendoring, etc...

These just stood out due to the lack of logic behind them.

Edit: Have gotten Curve earlier this week, with a good PuG (no windowlickers) that had an avg ilvl of 545-553 (one very skilled healer had 539 and was doing just fine). One near-wipe (FD + mass ress FTW), and one failure on Siege Engineer later 4 ppl got their first Garrosh normal kill. With skill and some dedication everything can be done, even in an almost pure PuG with below par requirements... Now if only the masses would come to realize that

valura, it's not about "cannot be done" with lower ilvl (remember Flex is tuned for people in 520-530 gear and SoO normal is tuned for 540ish).

It's about people who pug not really wantin to put effort and progress, rather wanting a free and clean loot run. People who want to progress usually do that with guilds or with organized pugs, or even in alt runs, and have no interest in grouping with randoms for it.
By going with people 20-30 ilvls ahead of the minimum requirement you eliminate a lot of the randomness due to lack of skill of the members.

LAG

(There is something horribly wrong with the servers - we couldn't do a thing last night. Somehow got through H:Thok (but the healers were crying the entire time), had no chance to even make more attempts at Blackfuse.)

Fucking Santa Claus on a pogo stick.

Dealing with a claim that I rarely deal with, I check with one of our liability representatives on how to handle it. Looking in the policy guide yields the lovely gem of, "welp, you can handle it this way OR you can handle it that way."

Gee, thanks. So I get to pick and choose?

6 more weeks of this type of stupidity...

Trying to get some paperwork approved for intermittent absences under FMLA.

The case manager decided to call me this morning to let me know the paperwork, while received, is incomplete.

I appreciate the information, but I probably would have appreciated it a lot more had she not called me at 445 in the fucking morning.

(As it was an 800 number, I ignored the call, struggled to get back to sleep, and listened to the message after my shower.)

Which leads me to the next frustration - day 3 in a row of waking up at some stupid hour and struggling to go back to sleep.

If this goes live I don't think I want to play Paladin any more. Seal swapping ON THE GCD is a HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE idea.

That one day I finally decide to get stuff done in WoW again, whole EU collapses and servers have to face a emergency maintenance.


Holy crap.

No raid tonight I guess. And these Celestalon tweets are pissing me off majorly.
