Silly Skye... this is Apple iWeld(TM). The finest in Cupertino-based welding design technology. It has no flaws, is impervious to fracture and fatigue, and is easily repaired by Approved Apple Service. It will even match your black turtleneck. Oh, but we may change it next year to be even better! So save up to get that one too.

Don't forget that you'll have to buy everything through the app store.

Yep, same.. but yet, still waiting for their latest hardware. That doesn't exist.

However, I can see a day not to far off where my computer is a PC, and all the mobile and tablets are iOS.

It depends on the product. The Macbook Air is excellent VFM but their desktops are really lacking in areas that are important to me and their RAM/HDD/SSD upgrades are ridiculously overpriced. Sadly Windows is terrible and Microsoft are a joke of a company so I don't see myself switching.

/sigh....I really would like WoW to have a D3 feature of being able to swap between US and EU. I would so love to find a EU guild to raid with.

And gold be a collective at the account level or at least realm level. So obnoxious to have to log over to a main to buy something on an alt.

Well, when they break, they breaks worse. =P

We have north of 1000 ipads, a good chunk of them are set up in hubs of 25, each hub controlled by a macbook pro, each macbook pro managed by a main MDM server. We touch each hub at least once a month to update everything, both the ipads and the macbook pros -- and for some reason, macbook pros just love to hang when doing the upgrades.

They just stay cycling on the white screen and then shut down. So, we gotta start from scratch on that hub, meaning we gotta download all the apps (after apple/itunes decided not to play nice with the app we had to re-download all the apps we purchased)... takes close to two days to have the hub back up and running the way it was before...

well... they havent been doing that for a while, but it was kinda bad about 3-4 months ago... and just overall annoying as hell.

Unfortunately, that would lead to massive abuse by goblins, but I love the idea, and hope they do exactly what you suggest. :twisted:

It doesn't even have to be realm based just leave it at the faction level. I can't count how many deals I've missed because I had to log onto an alt parked in the middle of nowhere and send gold over.

Then again this is the same company who has a 50k gold transfer limit unless you throw more money at them.

Guild is now down to 10 raiders total, which means if we're missing one person we can't raid. We also have zero flexibility, which is hurting us quite a bit. WTB more dps. :(

Horridon... event which may cause our disband...

fist alert, Garralon hit us hard early january : lost several players fed up with it (2 moved to another game, and the 2 new recruit, top dps, leaved to another raid/server)

and now this big bad sucker, 2h last night, and 3h+ previous week : still no progression (at best 3rd gate)
what a frustation! first boss easy cake, and then the wall. same feeling when we met Garalon. Lack of dps...(or lack of heal&dps when 2heals)

ilv average is 495, up to 500. recount on Horridon was 1 dps 120k, 2 dps around 100-110k, and 2 around 80k (mages...), our swith heal to dps was also 110
strat is quite ok (at least, piority dps is announced, no one died from stupid thing)
--> i've no clue how we can down this boss :| (except kick the lower dps, and recruit 2 new top dps : both are impossible)
are we doomed to farm 1 boss, then go back to previous content for month ??? ( (and for weeks, make new try on Horridon and still get hurt in the face...generating more and more furstation)

i raid since Vanilla in the same guild, for the first time, i feel very sad about this game and how blizz manage it
while Cata was heaven, i disliked a lot T14 progression path, T15 look like similar. not sure i will be still there for T16

Hmm your dps does sound a little low, well at least your mages. Why are you struggling at the 3rd door in particular? I know a number of guilds struggle on the 3rd door but i'm not sure why.

I imagine you've probably read all the tips but just in case you could consider using hero on door 3 and apparently army is very useful too. Personally we just slowly kited the adds from door 3 to door 4 as we killed them.

From experience, I'm betting it's because
A) They focus fire the poisones on the Gurubashi door, and thus have to handle a couple adds from that door.
B) The Mortal strike hurt like shieat. So if they can't blow the first Lord before the next 2 pop, and can't handle one of THOSE fast enough, the tank gets eaten.

That's also why BL is so often blown on that door - it's all about burst at that specific door. 2nd is about control and 4th is about no getting multiples of those <edited> Beast Shamans.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

http://www.worldoflogs.com/zones/Throne ... /Horridon/

median raid dps
-when wipe : 500k dps. from graf, very few chance to wipe when dps above 700k
-for loot : 999k dps (so 200k by player if 3heal, or 170k if 2heal), from graf, minimum seem to be aroud 800k


regarding my own raid
as Sagara said : the end of the 2d gate is too much chaotic (*)and we never yet nicely started the 3 gates (fist warlord not burst fast etc...)
(*) second gate : first priest is down quite quick (our rogue was on him to the end, then his next focus is the dino), offtank on priest2 while our DK was in charge of priest3, remaining dps in aoe mode (focus everything except priests), down the dino, finish the 2 priest // seems our plan is fine, but execution fail

so frustation come from the fact that we need to improve by "a lot" our overall dps, and i'm afraid it will take us too many weeks (most major up will come from 2pc bonus T15 lfr)

o well...

I'm sorry. They raped her.

However:
The owners of the place where it happened should be charged with gross negligence.

Maybe under-age sex offendors should have their record expunged after a certain amount of time has passed?

We found that gate getting better when we were able kill one of the pair of Priests before it could summon Effusions. With only one Priest up it's a lot cleaner.
