I actually wish that was an accepted way of ordering. Notepad at each table, jot down the numbers of the things you want, with specifications if needed.

I hate phoning up for take-away, do it online.

Had some issues as well. Not today though, but earlier in the week.
Was also logged out at one point, and when I tried logging back in I was told I had too many login attempts after just one, and had to do the I AM HUMAN PLEASE DON'T SHOOT thing.

I see it go down every couple of days, at least for the last few weeks. Then I either get the "run in offline" mode option or it is totally down with no offline mode at all.

Success: 2nd Ancient Panderian Fishing Trinket (now can fish on my new main)

Frustration: 25ish kills of Sulikshor, 15 of Scritch, no luck yet, lost Sulikshor on one spawn to a druid that was camping him, who got the Shard.

Sulik is on an 80-100 minute timer.

I found an Aqua pet on the AH for 3k, and snapped it up.

Here's how the rares work with a 99% certainty.

All rares in a zone share a spawn timer of about an hour and will all spawn at the same time. The spawn timer does not kick in until the last rare in the zone is killed. So if you kill Sulik'shor at 19:00 server time and the last rare is killed at 19:30 server you should get a respawn around 20:30 server or so.

Raid Frustration:

Feng deciding not to use Lightning Fist for the first 25% of his health and then using it twice in the cycle after we had run out of cooldowns to keep people alive during Epiccenter.

I'm not sure that's strictly how it works. I've noticed how the rares spawn together in a zone, but I have never seen a full set of rares all spawn at the same time - it's usually only 3-4 of them.

Yeah, don't think it's a simple as that, at least not to the zone, as I've found Sulik and Scritch within minutes of each other too often to be coincidence. Also, if what Flex states was the case, I would have gotten alerts on the other 3 rares that spawn nearby, but I never see them immediately after a Sulik kill.

It's more likely that they all have a timer of the same length, so they are all up at the beginning, and then get spread out during the day/week as some go a while before they are killed.

But, after my next Sulik kill, I will immediately head to the closest rare, and see if he's there.

Yeah, that doesn't jive with what I've seen either. I have had rares spawn in front of me 10-15mins after just killing one in the same zone.

While farming Sulik one day I hit him and had the Yaungol, Jonn-Dar, the fish guy, the flying mantid and the monkey in the mists all pop up multiple times in a row, did not check for the panderan girl or the lizard guy.

I fixed my motehrs computer today - been hanging indefinately on "windows is now starting" log o screen, no amount of repairs would work. Could boot in safe mode but no keyboard support, so no commandline help either. After trying anything I could find as a huint on the internetz, nothing working, I decide to update the bios, just to see, as someone mentioned that somewhere - result the computer continually restarts.
So I try another boot repair, which stops the computer from restartying, and after restarting it a few times after running different scans (no repairs) suddenly the computer starts up. Restarting a few times reconnecingt everything (extra HDD, External HDD, Printer, card reader etc etc) and it still works just like its supposed to.

Why infrustrations? well I just don't do well with stuff that suddenly works without having done anything - I just don't like it, I want to know that I did X and now it works (because of X or some result of X) - and no way will I belive that a BIOS update is enough to suddenly have windows working again when it hung on the initialisation/loading of drivers etc.

My former guild is now completely falling apart, with people leaving on the flimsiest of reasons. It's a bit frustrating to realise the guild only existed because you made it happen, and the center could not hold without you.

At the very least, the core are now pooling contacts to find spots for everyone.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

getting so frustrated at myself making the same mistake over and over on the trash before elegon that I said I'd probably have to step out because I was apparently having a bad night and didn't want to hold the group back... and having the RL for the group I was PUG'ed into freak because of how much time it would take to find a new tank (others were slightly more supportive ;) ).

We finally did get it down (after I basically said I didn't want anyone giving me crap if I couldn't get it in the next 15 mins), but it probably took more attempts than some of the earlier bosses. But from there on out each of the pulls got easier until we one-shot the final group and actually made some good attempts on Elegon.
