i lag in LFR bad enough...

The game was less demanding at the time. Spell effects were a lot simpler, and people didn't have procs and dots flying everywhere. The computer I had then was a small fraction of what I have now, but it was playable.

Sometimes I do indeed wonder how I got less FPS now with a proper monster pc, than I had 8 years ago with a shit pc in 40 men raids.

Millhouse Manastorm down! I pulled 426k dps on the kill, and the enrage still hit a couple seconds after.

Love the Brawler's Guild. Don't think I've been this happy about a kill since the first time I beat Yogg-Saron with my old guild.

It's also doing pretty good at creating a community around itself - nevermind that it's cross-realm, you still always have the same servers merging, so a lot of the same people hanging about; the difficulty encourages people grouping up for buffs, and the long waits while watching each other fight encourages conversation.

Went into Ulduar (10) for the first time in years. Soloed Orbituary, Ignis, Razorscale, Heartbreaker, Koralon, Iron Council hard mode, Auriaya, and Hodir (before timer).

Almost managed to solo Thorim but he kept despawning on entering the arena; after many tries, Nika joined me, and we two-manned Thorim, Knockx3 Freya, Firefighter, and Vezax hard. Then three manned Yogg+0.

I just have to go back next week and re-do Razorscale and Koralon for my meta and the mount.

Last day of the year and at work to help out with the helpdesk. Wish I brought my laptop along since there is absolutely nothing to do. I think we got a grand total of 7 people in the building (wich is about a new record).

its 1515 hours (quarter past 3 pm for the yanks), and my new years dinner is all set to take care of itself - well I have to turn on the stove for potatoes and make the sauce when the hour approches to watch the Queens new years address at 1800.

First time in 6 years I'm not scrambling around at this point to make sure everything is ready to get cooking at designated times - so I can actually relax this year (last 45 minutes will always be hectic)

Let's hope your Queen's adress goes any better than our King's Christmas adress...

Meh.. I've had dual-screen for years, and I'm beginning to think that one 27" might work better that dual 24's. However, it would be harder to "alt-tab" in LFR...

LFR on Garalon the tank locked out 4-6? people on the pull, including the other tank, so I take soaking spots place and also top healing meters. People were calling for a wipe but we stuck it out and it went really well for how it started.

It's rarely ever simple healing that fight in LFR because people don't move as groups like they could, so tbh it wasn't any different from normal except throwing more heals on myself.


More of an amusement but at work a woman asked me to tell her how much was left on her giftcard so I held it up and said, "probably seven" and she guessed $9. When I swiped it it was $8.50 and she says she won since she was closest, but I said I won because she went over. then she said I watch too much The Price Is Right. lol, good stuff.

Seriously considering quitting raiding. Realizing more and more that it's just a job, and the "thrill" isn't there (allthough certain raid leadership has a part in that). While I enjoy some of the people in the raid group, there's not the thrill in success that there should be.

Also realizing that the time I spend on my raiding toon (spriest) and my hunter (the toon I still like) adds up to too much. Trying to stay valor capped and other things just eats too much time if I want to get off my ass this next year and do some other things.

I figure that between LFR and factions and stuff I can keep my hunter current enough to have fun, and still be able to pug raids when a spot is available.

Thorim is a right pain to solo. There are plenty of videos out there and you've probably seen them already if you're getting him into the arena. If he's despawning at that point, it's probably because you pulled him/jumped down before what's her face spawned beside him. I've been doing him on my shaman just because of the wolf run and pet abilities. Basically, you pull one construct back to the arena without killing it and before you get lasered. Drop a pet or some other aggro spell into the arena while you go back into the gauntlet before it resets/gate closes. Once you have aggro you can kill the constructs and everything except one of the original arena adds from the reset while you go up the gauntlet. When near the platform, kill the last add (I leave up the captain, because it has the most health) to start the event. The tricky part is to wait long enough for her to spawn before aggroing/jumping down but before he calls you a weakling and melts your face.

Yeah, I got hit by the lightning thing right at the last second a few times before I figured it out. Few times I went up on the platform beside him, killed the last add, waited until he was attackable and said he'd come after me himself.. then he despawned after jumping in. Arg.

I had applied at some big retail chain whose HQ is a 5 minutes drive from home. It would be perfect to allow me to pick my kid at his nanny and my wife at the train station and completely nullify my transit time (~1h right now).

Glory of the Ulduar Raider (10)! God damn I hate that Iron Dwarf achievement. Probably should have done it with a healer instead of solo.
