Meanwhile, with the not-so-awesome quality of recent applicants, we decided to just "fuck this" and do 10-man untill SoO.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Tried one from this which, once again, wouldn't find or load my feeds, but then I finally went for gReader - used to be a google reader clone, but now uses Feedly or The Old Reader as options. I logged in via Feedly and it automatically pulled in all the feeds I'd imported from Google Reader to Feedly yesterday, and it's actually working pretty good. Having to go through every feed individually to teach it to display all articles and not just unread ones, though.

gReader displays a small banner ad at the bottom of the screen when reading articles, but I'm willing to live with that after the pain I've gone through with all the ad-free apps.

Edit: Arg. Right now gReader is still trying to use Google Reader for search, so I can't add new feeds. At the minute I've got the feeds I already had, though.

I soloed Hodir 25, but what a PITA it was both to get there and to kill him. And he didn't give me his shield.

To think that I had it in WotLK but I deleted it because it was the less prestigious one. :(

Happened on our kill too, newsom. Something about I wasn't eligible to roll on the boss. Put in a ticket and Blizzard was like "better luck next time".

I got demanded to leave a LFR and proposed to be kicked after a lei shen wipe.

What happened:
- Tanks don't know what to do, end up disabling the 2 pillars diametrically opposed.
- People get destroyed by the whip/thunderstruck in p3 as they don't know where to run.
- We wipe.
- I complain about the clueleessness of the tanks and that they should have read tactics or have asked for them.
- Druid tank goes insisting that's the heroic tactic and I should shut up.
- People support him.
- I get called "mr 40k dps", he links the dmgmeter when I'm in fact 20th with 40k dps, and get told I'm being carried so should shut up.
- I leave.

Fact: I was healing, and was first by a 15% margin over the second. Sigh.
Just the idea of having to repeat Lei Shen LFR 2 times this week makes me dread...

Step 4. Don't complain. Ask if they are unfamiliar with what to do. If they reply they do not know what to do explain what to do. If you are met with stone silence explain what to do any way.

Then you have assholes who call people who ask how to do a fight horrible and scrubs.

So fuck everyone, I hope they all die from horrible painful diseases.

I had earlier during the fight, the tank said he knew what he was doing. Just my jaw dropped when I saw the 2 platforms light up in p3.

Did a ToES LFR with a guild healer who has never done it before. Some of the healers and DPS asked what to do and I was the only one to actually explain what to do, the tank was a spiteful little jerk who yelled and bitched at people for not being as knowledgeable as he was. It takes less than 30 seconds to explain each fight, take the time to do it, be nice.

That's fine, I do that too when people ask.

Problem is in this case the person was like "I know what to do stfu"

Apparently, according to my guild, my friendlist, and most of this forum, tank job in 5.4 is to do as much dps as they can, making them survive is a job of healers. If they die, it's healers' fault. They don't need a extremely strong proc from a legendary cloak, and I think I'm going to earn a gkick for arguing with my whole guild that tanks should focus on surviving.

Maybe I'm the only one who still thinks that tanks' job is to survive and not to win the meters.

I'm seeing that being thrown about a lot as well. Luckily my guild isn't too pushy with the tank corp, so they probably won't force our hand as long as we don't die to stupid.

In all honesty, though, if you're not pushing the bleeding edge or are not the runt of the litter, you'll probably be able to grab the DPS cloak without much fuss. "Able" being the keyword.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Why exactly would someone refuse the strongest tank cd in game, so strong it had been whined about and nerfed to the ground in WotLK. You remember it? Being able to not use your cooldowns cause "in case I'd die, AD will save me", so you could save them for when AD was already procced.

WHY. For what, 1k haste that you don't even need in SoO gear, and a proc that does shit damage in a ST fight?

Oh but who cares, let's all blame the healers if we die while we're doing so much dps. Ok.

It's an interesting phenomenon. I was just reading this thread over on MMO-Champion, in which it seems that a good number of tanks now find the most enjoyable part of tanking doing tons of damage and would quit tanking if that aspect of tanking were nerfed.

As I told some people earlier, buffing tank DPS was the stupidest thing they done to tanking in the whole WoW history.

Actually people not pushing bleeding edge would be better served by the proc. While progressing at our pace my death from lack of healer attention while they figure out the ebb and flow of healing has caused wipes.
