I log on, all curious for the new weekly raid, and rdy to get some very easy EoF's, only to find it's "Malygos must die". Just my luck that it's not only the last one missing from my Frozen Wastes achiev, it's also the absolute no-go instance on my server, kinda like do-not-mention-the-eye-of-eternity.

Have been trying to get a raid together al evening, hoping the 5x EoF would entice at least some ppl to form a raid, but gave it up after more than an hour :(

Hm.. So I was just lucky that we got the "Lord Marrowgar must die" weekly raid on our server? Thought maybe everyone got him the first week after patch.

Btw - we were heading to EoE 25 the other night, all buffed up, ready to go - noone's ever done him on 25 before, but everyone've done 10 man several times, and raid is probably overgeared for him. Of course raid planner hadn't checked whether anyone actually had the key to the 25 man version.....

The weekly raid quest is random for each server, like the daily heroic before.
This week it's Ignis on my server.

Mob movement...

Apparently we have hitboxes the size of a squirrel's nuts, and the mobs are said squirrels, completely hyper on caffeine, crack and having their nuts removed to be used as our hitboxes.

This. Friends started to ask if I was moonwalking. Had to move backwards and turn/strafe while spamming Cons/HoR to keep them all on me. I ended respeccing into SoC, in the hopes it will help with the caster+2melee+2ranged mobs on the ramp.

Why is everyone noticing this now? It happens after every patch but it seems to have stuck in one of the 3. patches.

It never was this bad before. Unless you have Hammer glyphed for an additional target (which I find utter crap for MT purposes), the grouping of 5 mobs, and the reduction of our 'hitbox' makes it worse than ever... :(

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.


Update: talked to a GM. Apparently this was an 'interesting problem' and I ended up going up to two other GMs who were basically a supervisor and a manager. They have kicked it over to the Dev team and given me an email to check up on things in a week.

Apparently, they are concerned that people who are qualified for a Feat of Strength shouldn't be penalized. I suspect it was simpler to remove the code on the quest giver rather than grandfather in a hand-in - which is usually what happens in these cases. You can hand the quest in but no one can get the quest.

Oh well. Wait and see. It was, all in all, a very pleasant discussion.

This, I fear for our tries on Anub25 hc this week, since I'm the sole add tank.

Starting to get the hang of Deathwhisper's adds in Phase 1, only to have the server dork up.

Marrowgar's damage output for a mostly 232 gear raid makes it hell for two healers. Best we got was 40%ish. Typically a healer would get Bone Spiked and in the few seconds to free them one of the tanks would go down fast to saberlashes.
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.

To see if we could. Now that we know we can't at the current gear level we'll go back to three next week. Doesn't help that our third healer disconnected due to a power outage so we were stuck with two.
