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.

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

You forgot the part about Authenticators causing brain cancer, and money from their purchase being spent to finance terrorism.

I bought mine for some 6 euros, though postage was about an additional 12 euros. I was wondering , why the f.... does postage cost so much. Oh yeah that's because they used some stupid delivery firm that couldn't even get the package to my door, I had to go out to the airport and search among severeal transport buildings to find the one in question, there was no "reception"/customer support thing there, I just happened to get lucky and meet one of their drivers on the parking lot.

But all right, now I got my authenticator, forgive and forget...

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.

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.
