My RL told me he's concerned that my aggro is not what it used to be (comparatively).

We had another tankadin raid with us for a few days (canceled application) and people felt that he had a better aggro than me, even though he has roughly the same gear and spec as me, we both do the 969 like clockwork, and the logs say we have roughly the same dps.

So I'm at loss on what to say or do to "fix" that.

I can log in, which seems to be not the norm for today, but then I try to pug and apparently all the instances magically disappeared.

Went to go do the new heroics. Clear Forge of Souls fine, wife even wins a Battered Hilt. We move onto Pit of Saron, kill first 2 bosses, a death or 3 due to people learning the fights but no problem. We finish up the gaunlet leading to Tyrannus and Sylvannas gets there with her troops, then we're suddenly running place for 5 minutes. Eventually the server dies or something. We all get back in a few minutes later... ungrouped... in Dalaran.

Group back up, fly back to ICC and re-enter instance. All the trash and bosses have respawned so we have to clear again. So, whatever, we go kill and even get to loot the bosses again, we get through the gauntlet in the cave to see Tyrannus waiting for us on his proto-drake... but Sylvannas and her troups never show up...

So after we engage the boss for a bit, the adds show up and wtfpwn us eventually taking out a healer or a couple dps, and we can't finish him off. End up calling it for the night.

So I figure I'll try out the cross-server LFG random heroic to get my frost emblems. Get a group then 'additional instances cannot be launched' and then get a debuff saying I just used the LFG system and need to wait 15 minutes. 15 minutes later, I try again, same issue. Cut my loses for the night and log off.

LFG system overall seems pretty nice and the D/E system is pretty nice too. Just need some more stability and we'll be gtg!

No more drama, no more hysterics, no more ego-duelling. I'm too old for all that shit.

A little while ago I calculated that when I keep emblems on my main for tier gear and gather them for saronite orbs on 4 alts it will take me about 20 days of heroics+2x weekly raid quests on each to get 8 orbs for first item. I hope I can get those alts geared enough for ICC so I can increase emblem-income.

DAMNIT.

No "Proof of Demise" Feat of Strength or Achievment for me. Did Oculus on Monday night as I finally got a group for it. Killed Ley Guardian. Got the quest item. Ported to Dalaran. Computer crashed out due to load there. Couldn't get back in. Tried to get in early Tuesday but they'd already started the patch.

Got to the quest giver... couldn't hand it in. Checked my quest log. Quest is GONE. I still have the item and it is still marked as a quest object. Filed a petition with the GMs.

I feel like crying. With my stupid schedule for the past four months, gtting online when the quest was available was difficult to say the least. And without a daily, no one was willing to to go Oculus.

DAMNIT.

Make sure you hold onto the item. If you crashed and the server went offline before normal time on tuesday, you might find a friendly GM who will help you out.

No kidding! I have the item. I'm not letting go of it. Its the only proof I have. However, there's a note in to the effect "that GMs won't complete quests for you" or words to that effect so I could be SOL here - which would make me sad. I missed out on Champion of the Naaru because I let things slide (and I had a guild that was too 'leet to help the rank and file) and then boom. Patch 3.0.8 hits a month early.

I swear, is it so hard to find responsible officers?

In October, a guild officer was hacked, cleared out most of the bank. Officers lamented it, it was recommended they all buy authenticators.

In early November, another officer was hacked, cleared out most of the bank again. Officers were told in no uncertain terms that having an authenticator is a requirement of being an officer to avoid future issues, and to prevent other problems, and if the cost was a huge issue, we’d find a way to handle it.

This weekend, guild leader is hacked, because they just didn’t bother to buy the authenticator yet. Three other officers also just didn’t get around to it, and still haven’t. Reformed the guild, contacted everyone restarted guild bank. Guild bank is under strict control that only I have access to it, as I can confirm my authenticator, and several other officers are vulnerable.

Last night in ICC, guild leader, still without the authenticator, or any gear still, tells me while I’m about to lead the raid that to make sure any of the BoE stuff is mailed directly to them. I almost flipped out, because the last thing I want is our Primordial Saronite to walk out the door because of a still compromised account has the only control on the god damn things…

Between that, and posting all the information on the various bosses for ICC for both discussion and early review, I find that most of the officers simply did not even look at the posts because they just assumed I’ll tell them. When explaining bosses last night, had to repeat several key things to several officers because they just weren’t paying attention.

As soon as the raid ended I logged off in absolute disgust…

I know that there's a thread for the core hound pup, but I was to post how frustrated I am at the new way Blizzard is trying to get people to give them more money. I was hoping for the core hound pup to add to my collection, and I know that an authenticator is a good idea to avoid risk of being hacked, but c'mon now. =/

It's a gift for people that purchased... what's the downside?

I can't stand when people complain about free stuff. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

It's not so much about you giving them money for the authenticator, it's saving money from having to waste less time on compromised accounts.

The authenticators are so cheap, they're virtually giving them away. The price seems to be there to cover the postage and handling, not to line their pockets with.

And FYI to all you iPhone owners, the mobile battlenet authenticator is a free download to your iPhone...meaning a free pet

Its frustrating that people who want to potentially save Blizzard time by not having to restore every inch of their account get a thank you gift? Wow are people really this jaded now?

People who think that the only reason not to have an authenticator is because of money reasons.

How's about Blizzard is fucking fail at shipping shit overseas? Yeah? Is that okay with the almighty overlords of Authenticators?

That doesn't qualify as a money reason? Not wanting to pay extra to get something shipped to you?

No, it's not the money, it's that Blizzard is actually terrible at shipping things. I bought an Authenticator once. Never got it, Blizzard's response? LOL NOT OUR PROBLEM.

Never. Again.

So it's not really the authenticator at all. It's shitty customer service.

I'm frustrated at my own level of fail:

...so, last night I was wondering why I had http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47884 still in my bags - Was convinced I sold it ages ago.

...then this morning when I was equipping my tank gear (for the first time in about a month), it said main hand missing - And I realize that my http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47899 is missing...

The icons are kinda similar - So about a month ago when I was to sell my 2h:er I instead sold my tank weapon :P Wonder how long Blizzard keeps logs, I guess I'll find out when I come home today and petion....

I still have some Naxx25 tank weapon, so it's not a huge loss - But I thought I'd share for some amusement
