But still, I'm not sure that the jump from 232 to 245 will make a drastic difference in the damage intake. At least, not more than can be compensated for by quick activation of cooldowns.


You'd be shocked. For instance you're about 2K more health than I am (4K or so if I go with the armor trinket) unbuffed with better clicky trinkets that don't give you beer when you /wave. Now filter that across the entire raid and you have more of everything.

I'm 100% positive if everything went perfect we'd get a kill but when you're on the gear cusp for what it is tuned for little things add up.

Cooldown usage could work but we had a few pulls were the spikes went from healer 1 to healer 2 then back to healer 1. Those annoyed me.

Edited To Add:
Just from my general observation as a casual progression focused 10 man raider 25 man groups can 2 heal new 10 mans while 10 man groups would typically need 3 healers to start and then as gear comes in they can drop a healer.
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.

Random Heroic for today: Halls of Stone. DPS is low, but the players seem ok, everyone has to gear up sometime. Healer is a tree in decent gear, and he decides to push one of my biggest buttons: says I'm not going fast enough and starts pulling. I put up with it a little at the start, because he wasn't doing it much, but he just got worse as we mvoed toward Krystallus.

Finally he made a big mess and got a couple dps killed, so I try to vote him out - too slow, he pulls the boss before I can click it. One dps dead on the pull, I grab the boss and tank it. Boss dies, we got down the next hall to Maiden. Finally start a vote when we're standing before the boss, and he's out.

The new tool was surprisingly quick at filling the spot - I'd honestly expected trouble getting a healer into an instance with a boss down. As it happens we got a great Priest replacement, and with our 1100-2000 dpsers (I was top with 2.4k) we happily finish the instance with no further problems. The Brann encounter is actually more fun when the mobs don't die quick, heh.

No one I pug wants to full clear the new heroics in hopes of the hilt dropping.

Anachronos has a leash. Got him to just inside the Shimmering Flats and poof...gone.

Joined Random Heroic today... get group in under a minute (like normal - <3 being a tank) get to the instance... then wait the entire dungeon tool cooldown for the healer to COME BACK FROM AFK

if you know you have to afk - why in hell did you queue? I know as a healer he got the queue in under a minute - so it's not like he queued and went to do something - especially since he actually had to accept the queue before he got to the instance...

Then when I try to vote to kick - it gets turned down... so I left...

Just can't seem to grasp the idea of queueing for something like that then going afk for 20 minutes and wasting other people's time... it's freaking retarded...

Between 10 and 25 man we may have seen every possible Gunship encounter bug. For starter's the trash pull nearest the elevator after Deathwhisper ended up on top of the teleporter and perpetually remained in combat with the Horde NPCs. Moving more than a few steps into the raid instance caused us to be teleported up to that group to be gang banged. We couldn't buff up outside either because of phasing.

As we finished off Gunship in our 10 man, a few people were rocketing over to kill a final sorcerer spawn. The enemy ship went down with them aboard and they couldn't port off =p.

In 25 man tonight our gunship didn't circle around to the Deathbringer platform after we won the encounter. We were forced to drop down and wipe so that we could port up there.

Additionally, another of our 10 man groups killed Saurfang last night and the boss bugged such that they could continually hit the boss after he was down. The group was then stuck in combat and could not open the chest.

Road works. It's stupid, I get on the bus outside my home and then spend 20 mins on the same road only moving a couple of yards if I'm lucky. I leave at 8:20 in the morning and college starts at 9. I'm still just turning off of the road on the bus at 8:50 and so instead of being over 30 mins late for my one college lesson today I phone up and tell them I can't make it. Why do we need a new train station :( they've been working on it for a year now and the detours are just getting worse.

It's worse than that, because he went AFK after accepting the invitation, or the instance wouldn't have started.

:P

Anyways, being a lone dps in the LFG tool, and not only that, but you finally get ready to enter an instance, and that one DPS doesn't accept the invite so you're thrown back into the pool instead of getting ported to the instance and getting 1 dps to join.

The shadow portion of Scourge Strike can't crit anymore. This is a fair change, since the current iteration of SS is all different kinds of amazing, and this is only cutting off one of the many many many ways this strike double dips with talents.

Needs more DK tears, to be honest. Boo hoo, now the talented strike of the Unholy tree (which was already the strongest dps tree) only crits for double damage instead of RNG critting for quadruple.

Fuck I hate DKs. >_>

They should have made the new strike like a seal, with the shadow part not scaling with armour pen. The current implementation means that if you hit something with 99% physical resistance, the shadow part will hit for peanuts too right? Having the shadow part double crit for quad damage was clearly stupid, I don't know why it went live.

Realizing how undergeared my tree druid is.

I wanted to go run the new heroics last night to try and get a few pieces to catch up since he's still is a good amount of Uld10 gear with a piece of ToC10, a Uld25 or two, and a few Naxx25 pieces left and the 4pc T8.

Healing wasn't actually too bad in the instances overall, only real troubles I felt I had was when I had to heal 2-3 'tanks' instead of 1. However, while we only wiped once in the 1st two dungeons, I must have died like 8 times. Repaired at the start of PoS, then died a few more times in Halls of Reflection after the 1st boss. Again, mostly due to me trying to heal aggro on 3 different people (though admittedly having tanked there, it can be fun to round them all up).

After one wipe, we try again, and I notice I'm going OOM after the 1st wave... wtf. I innervate, chug a pot and keep going, but still having mana issues, etc. Then I look at my gear and realize everything is broken. So I'm trying to heal with basically 350 SP. I throw on a staff I won to get up to 800-something SP and we make it to the 9th wave but it becomes too much.

I give up and go to bed since it was almost 1am. Time to start using LFG tool on my druid to get some emblems!

I am very tempted to play WoW again.

Why is this a frustration?

1. I have been playing Aion and while it is a great game I've lost all interest in playing it. The sucky part is that I came to this realization right as a friend started playing it with me. Now I don't want to ditch him and I don't want to pay for both games.

2. With my newly singleness and need to go out and meet new people I am afraid WoW will be dangerous. Part of the reason I know so few people here is because when I first moved here I was a WoW playing hermit. I don't want to repeat that. Now if I am aware of it I could try to avoid it but...

3. If I did start playign again I'd probably look for a new guild. Possibly a new server too. Don't really want to spend the cash on a server/faction transfer. A friend recently started playing again and has offered to pay for a transfer of one of my toons to where she is playing but her interest in WoW never lasts for more than a month and her server is a bad time zone for me.

You should do what I did for when I started playing WoW. I could have played with my cousin, but I didn't want to really be grouped with anybody or talk to many people. So I just chose a random server, and started playing there. Of course, the server had to match my time zone at the time. =) Play to enjoy the game, and that way you don't feel so comitted and it's not like work.
