Not enough semi dressed draenei or belf screenshots on Maintankadin. I mean, its nearly Wintersveil! Don't make me get up on the mailbox again. I have a dwarven beergut and I am not afraid to use it.

Not just this, but the realm status page and the forums appear to have died, so no updates on what's going on atm.

Ah, well. Guess I'll crack open that book I've been meaning to start (with one finger still on Refresh ;)).

Someone decided it would be a good thing to hold a national study conference in Detroit...in December. I'll only be there two days but I'm still not thrilled about freezing my butt off since we're supposed to be walking all over campus. The only upside to my trip is that I'll get to see a friend from college for the first time in about 6 years. However, they are expecting snow tomorrow so if it is bad enough she may not be able to come meet me after all.

Don't worry.The burning, abandoned buildings should keep you warm. And have a quick nip over to Windsor, Ontario if you can! :D

Question to the people who do recruiting for their guilds.

If you don't even bother to reply to an app, why?


I posted an app on the 2nd and more apps have been posted after mine, they were responded to with rigorous questioning. All I've gotten was a question from a random member about my Pyro Rockets. I haven't been found in game to talk to and my app is basically untouched. Excessive questions to find out my class knowledge, a thank you for app'ing but we don't want you, anything would be better than nothing at all.

How do I respond to this?

That's bad guild management really. You could repost and ask if they had any questions since your application had remained untouched.

I expect they'd respond rather rudely if I posted again while my old app is still there.

For as elitist as they are, they sure aren't lifting a finger to rip me a new one on any spec/gem/class knowledge. They tore into a rogue who posted after me.


Edit: Did you mean post in my thread asking if they had any other questions?

Yeah, post a second post in your thread you made and ask if they had any comments or questions on your application.

Alright, I did.

I've been so worried about being turned away or actually getting accepted; I never even considered being completely ignored to be an option.

Well, from personal experience, you've got to remember these are real people too, and while it is a bit rude of them to somewhat ignore you, maybe that guy who loves picking apart tanks hasn't been around for a day or two while the guild rogue expert has. Or maybe the rogue app just cried out to be ripped apart because it was so terrible. Usually if it's a really amazing app for a class we're in high demand of I'll reply very quickly. If it's an app that has some major issues on a class I know a lot about, I'll reply fairly fast, and fairly extensively, picking it apart. If it's a reasonable app, not absolutely mind-blowing but nothing obviously wrong, I tend to wait and see what other people think of it before really having a go.

Or maybe they're just assholes!

It was for my hunter. I told their recruiter and their main (and for a long while, only) hunter I had posted my app. Recruiter said yes they were still recruiting, go for it. Their hunter, who has always been helpful to me and I talk to occasionally said, it's probably too late with ICC coming the next week. The hunter even posted in the rogue's app.

The rogue was terrible and deserved to be thrashed. He had many people posting.


Edit: Mentioned hunter sent me a tell in game saying I might have an invite coming tonight. The lack of replies was due to "internal issues."

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!

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.
