Yeah, we just don't know how they are gonna select servers, and how many might be paired.

The funny thing is I got shouted down here several months ago when I said that CRZ meant that they were doing virtual servers now, which allowed for that kind of pairing. This only confirms it. Remember when they were selling those server blades? Those were the last of the "real" realm servers, it's been all virtual since then.

You were shouted down for relating hardware to realms since hardware gets more powerful making it able to run more realms or support more players

And you seem to still be tied to a mythical notion that one realm has to equal one blade in a server farm.

Despite having to downsize from 25 to 10, It's been a good week.

Tortos finally keeled over when *someone* realized DBM has a countdown to the breaths, and we started and finished Iron Qon. Even got to solo tank the bugger, which was an absolute blast.

EDIT: Holy shit, with all the grumbling, I forgot to mention my coin on Qon gave me his sword. Heroic.

Got my hunter in as a PuG for a group advertising "LF ranged dps ToT, guild run, trying heroics" last week.

Did H-Jin'rokh, then wiped a few times on H-Horridon and H-Tortos before going through the rest of it (doing H-Ji'Kun along the way). So I went from (personally) 11/12 to 2H/13 in a week. Picked up the Durumu crossbow too, which was nice. (Had an LFR Qon gun before).

Must not have embarrassed myself too badly, as they put me on the calendar for this week.

It was a little weird to be dead last among the DPS, though. :lol:
(Not that I was completely buried, but still...)

Also got two different Hearts from the Thunder King yesterday - hopefully I can get the two cloaks today!

Got 2 cloaks yesterday. One for Hunter, and the INT/crit/haste/mastery one for my shaman. Couple of small reforges and I hit the 3700-ish haste breakpoint for the healing totems finally. :)

Bigger success: Finally had enough people to run 10-man again with my horrible terrible bad bad not-good guild. (Remember, this is the one that couldn't avoid Attenuation disks). We 2-shot Jin'rokh (the first try one of the tanks didn't do the swaps correctly - he hadn't seen the encounter before, even in LFR). Then tried Horridon.

Over the course of a few pulls, it went from a complete disaster to getting to the 4th door fairly consistently. Was getting through the 2nd door cleanly at the end, which was awesome compared to the 8 or 9 stacks of poison we had the first couple times! Even got to the wargod once, but one of our tanks was down at that point so there wasn't much hope. *laugh*

Amusement: The trash before Horridon when people have only done that on LFR. I tried to warn them, honestly... :lol:

Failure: I didn't quite hit 100k HPS on Jin'rokh. Drat. :P

So I'll admit, this expansion doesn't hold much interest for me. I wound up having to drop my DPS to play a healer, then was asked to switch to a different healer to accomodate a part time pug, so we didn't have double-up class shenanigans, and now I'm back to my first healer. Which is fine!

But this also means she hasn't gotten as much LFR time as she should have, in between healer switches and boredom with the expansion in general.

Which means she's been stuck using the 476 crafted off-hand for who knows how long. No healer shields apparently exist for her (or upgrade in off-hands).

The success? I had her do her first heroic scenario last night, finally, and of course, she gets gold from the heroic satchel. But because it was her first, she also had the question from the spinning guy in Shrine of Seven Stars. He gave her a 516 healer shield. Yes!

(It's hilarious, she had been using a mace/off-hand, and when not holding her weapons, only the mace appeared on her, at the hip. NOW she has the shield, but she did also pick up the healer fist weapon (wtf?) from LFR Council last night, so now she's got only the shield displayed.)

My wife has returned to the game! She loaded up a DK on my new server, where she's now my casual f**ck play buddy!

One note she already made: "No scenarios before 90? Pity."

I'd like to see scenarios replace leveling 5 mans and 5 mans be strictly Max level content. With tweets to difficulty, perhaps 3 steps

that would be interesting...

not sure what the 3 steps would be, but assuming normal, heroic, and challenge?

I don't see the fascination with 5-mans, and why so many of the forums rage about how "x" could have been scrapped in favor of developing more 5-mans. 5 mans can go DIAF. Looking back at my toons, over that past year, I've only run 5-mans to boost leveling, and after having done heroic scenarios now, I see NO need for 5-mans at all at max level. We don't need then to teach tanking or healing, you have LFR and FLEX for that. Why would I want to do a 5-man at 90 when I could do an LFR wing in the same amount of time?

I totally disagree with Flex on this. 5-mans should be the leveling content to teach skills, and scenarios should be the max-level short content for delivering lore and providing daily content.
