The hackers/kiddies kinda forced their hand on the rolling restarts. That doesn't explain why the login servers are hosed, though.

Yeah, seeing that since I have time to kill and browsing MMOChamp.

Guess is they applied a fix for authentication that didn't work.

Edit: Looks like things are back, but as one poster somewhere noted, those kill videos were far more entertaining than the 'world event' scenario, lol.

Dailies... So many dailies!

I don't mind doing a few, but this is redonkulous.
What if I want to get exalted but DON'T want to grind a thousand dailies?

Also, Darkmoon Fare is back with us again, and I'm having issues with the quest that you have to grind out 250 grizzly trophies. Ive been killing Green level mobs in Jade forest/Karasang wilds but am not getting any Trophies. What gives?

Challenge mode silver is like,okayish,goodish,doable,whatever.
Almost got the mount too with loads of server first times.

Then challenge mode gold seems outright impossible.

There are a lot of gimmicks that go into Challenge mode Gold, whereas Silver (and to a lesser extent Bronze) are just by and large "Actually do mechanics, unlike Heroic mode". Death Knight-ness trivialises things to a hilarious extent.

It is a little frustrating in the sense that it will forever be either harder or you will just have to give up on ever ranking based on comp.

Apparently, ilvl 462 is too low to get invited to MV normal. :(

<- My face when.

Do those guy want to form a raid, or to get a raid to stuff them? It's friggin' week two!
I think the top geared people last Monday were 466-ish?
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I may be looking for my third different guild since quitting Edge. The guild, foolishly, split into two raid groups in Firelands. The group I'm in is about dead since most of them haven't played since May. The other group is too damn clique-ish and won't bring in most of my group simply because they don't like those players despite having only 9 in the raid. Further, they extended an offer to me... if I change Mains to my mage in part because one of their tanks (also a paladin) "doesn't have an off-spec". That and their comp is horrid (two pallies, hunter, three windwalkers, dk, druid of some kind, possibly a second druid or a priest). And yet the remnants of my group is already lfr geared while half their group isn't even 90 and those that are are barely 440...

Oye :(

Renewed the guild domain last week.

This morning, it's expired (confirmation number received and confirmed they actually took the money).

Not happy.

What registrar? I've never had a problem with NetworkSolutions, but have had problems with others. Also, NEVER register the name through the hosting company.

And I've never had a problem with the registration and hosting being done by the same company. I actually hate having them with two different companies.

Bad practice. Because...

If your relationship with the hosting company goes bad, they can hold the name hostage.
Many hosting companies actually register the names themselves, so if you leave, you might be hosed.
Many of the hosting companies don't give you access to the domain names should you choose to use a filtering service such as Cloudflare.

I much prefer having all my domain names managed at one place, even if hosting is scattered among several providers.
