I don't feel particularly successful at the moment. Plenty of frustration, though.

About to do the same. No matter what previous achievments and kills I have, guilds only care about my current gear and experience.I've never been let in on 1tankfights by the other tank/raidleader.
I rather quit than to experience progression in a world500+ guild,I'd get very frustrated. Watching others fail for days on simple fights when I already know the fight in and out is just not fun .

Sounds like you were frustrated with a particular part of the game, but will miss other parts.

I'm strongly considering quitting my raid group if attitudes there don't change by the time I get back from vacation. They are trying to be "hardcore" in a family guild, and the attitude isn't working. If I get back and they are still stuck on Garallon, it won't be pretty.

I think it may be time for me to see if there is enough in the game to hold my interest if I'm not raiding outside of LFR.

.4% attempt on Garalon... Insult added to the injury: I had to spend a good 5 seconds running back and forth to get my pheromones because the other kiters couldn't be assed to think about the tanks :'-(

And the final words? The horrible, horrible: "Yeah, with some extra gear, we're sure to get it next reset."

Yeah. Sure. Gear.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

You will get it next reset, due to increased focus in first few attempts and more experience on the fight. But those players will put it down to gear.

Tried to subtly imply that it's going to be about streamlining and removing DPS losses left and right.

Ya know, I think I'd KILL for a nice tank spot somewhere right now. Not blaming Joe or Noos, because they and their guilds tried their damned best to get going, but damn is the near-taste of Nirvana bitter.

So I'm all set to transfer to Sargeras.

Now comes the hard part. My name is taken. Inc 2 hours as my ocd runs rampant in hopes of finding that elusive THIS NAME IS THE BEST NAME EVER

Is it taken by an active character? If it's not, you could log a ticket to get them to release the name for you.

Actually I'm glad it's taken. The name my hunter had (Afkshot) was a joke name because I never figured I'd do anything with them.

Naming a toon is always the hardest part for me for some stupid reason.

Well it doesn't help that when you DO think of a name that fits and is oh so perfect and then plug it in... it's usually taken.

Name it after me. I wont mind.

Shoju or Onisu.

If you want story on the names:

http://l5r.wikia.com/wiki/Bayushi_Shoju
http://l5r.wikia.com/wiki/Onisu

Onisu probably isn't as good of a name for a Hunter as it was for a Death Knight, but Shoju is such a huge fixture in the L5R Community.

If you are looking for a good "hunter" name, you will get mad props from people you don't even know for the following names:

Tsuruchi
Mukami
Rekai (female name)

They can all be researched on the same Wiki. They were all badass Archers, as close as the game ever got to a "WoW type" hunter.

I have similar OCD when it comes to names. Which is bad, because in the process of moving my characters from Blackrock to Tich, I have to rename most of them!

Luckily Theck didn't change, nor did my warlock Synne, nor my DK Braaiinns. I named the new monk Woknwoll ("Chef" title for added lulz). Decided to go with "Diffraction" for my warrior because it literally means "to break into pieces."

But it took me forever to come up with a good hunter name. Unfortunately "Schrodinger" was taken (cat pet, obv). I ended up going with a Zoo pun: Zooperb.

Still need something for my rogue and druid though. I think I'm going to keep my mage's name (Gnomegusta).

Gnome puns are the AIDS of character names.
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'm telling you, if you like references to L5R, there are TONS of great names.

I once ran into a Draenei Male named Kokujin. Don't remember the class, think it was Shaman, but he was BLUE!
I once ran into an Elemental Shaman named Yoritomo. The Thunder/Lightning reference wasn't lost on me.
A Fire Mage Named Isawatsuke (giggle)
Rogues named Aramoro, Shoju (my Shoju was a rogue before I deleted it to rename my pally), Yudoka, etc..
A Hunter Named Mukami who had a Wasp Pet.
A Human Warrior named Toturi
A Dk named Hanteiix (said it wouldn't let him have the xxxix)
Mages and Warlocks named Junzo

If I had continued to play into Pandaria, I had reserved the name Heigai for my monk. Most wouldn't have gotten the reference, but I would have.

Speaking of L5R Cards, I recently parted ways with my collection of Scorpion Cards. Wish it would have sold for more, but I'm pleased that a current player has such a kick ass collection of Scorpion stuff.

Gz Joe on number 28000 ^^

Yesterday our app was approved by apple to be placed in the app store. (ok, it got trough in 1 go, thats a success). But the second it got in the app store, 593 bug reports where shot in over a space of 3 minutes.

And our system administrator figured he could "test" the application aswell. So he's at my desk every few minutes asking questions on how to do something. Great, there goes my focus the rest of the day.

STAY AWAY I DONT WANT TO HELP YOU WITH IT! BUY SOME TRAINING! [/raaaaawrawrwrwrrrwrwrr!]
