Too many shaman! (guild joke when even just one shaman is logged on)
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.

I added a few more lists in the post on the last page, further breaking down by role in dungeon / %of each classes representation.

I surprised myself when doing this. While in the overall statistics, hunters seemed to be excluded a little from grouping with me, when I did it by % of dpsers by class, they were #1 at 20% of the time.

Is type of gear worn not taken into account, and just weapons? I'm really curious now.

There might also be some weighting in place based on attack range when it's forming. I can imagine the tool trying to avoid making a group with 3 melee DPS for instance since that can make some encounters harder.

Take what you can, give nothing back. :) Glad you got the helm.

Also, grats on getting in the ICC run. Very cool. How did you get Sons of Hodir to exalted in that same time, though?? Lots of ice shards or something? (I could never find those.)

I would lose the ability to tank, but man, it is just so much fun to DPS on them, and when i was healing in the 60's it didn't seem to be horrible.


My shaman alt (now 44) has been healing a lot.. and it's damned fun when it goes well. I especially like being DPS and having the option of clutch healing, too. Ele is, in many ways, boring as heck (at this level: LB, LB, LB...), but that has its own cathartic rythm to it. Won't main-swap, though :D

I started running Sons of Hodir quests at 77. It was the only thing I did in Storm Peaks from 77 on. With the boost to rep that they put in a patch or two ago, it was really easy, and I was done far sooner than I had anticipated. I shot for 10 relics and 1 everfrost shard every day that I did dailies. Some days I found more than 1.
