Are you self-employed? :)

We have Dodd-Frank's lovely SEF shenanigans landing on us like a gang of unwanted, unwashed relatives who have brought their big suitcases this week. Frustration and anger at the workplace were left behind about a month ago. We're in psychotic rage territory at the moment.

Found "the Shattering" in my book pile and browsed it when I stopped on an early scene between Jaina and Anduin discussing Varian's anger management issues.

Oh, how the tables have turned. Makes me wonder how soured will the relation become between Anduin and Jaina.

Aaand I've just thrown in the towel on WoW. Not that I don't enjoy the game anymore - still love it as all hell, but it became nigh impossible to reconcile being a raider, a father and a husband, and I couldn't conceive the game without raiding :D

I'll still tag around and maybe come back at a later time if obligations permit, so no worries, you'll still have to suffer me :mrgreen:

Our guild and raid leader got hacked despite having an authenticator. We suspect it came from the VPN he was using.

Seeing as you are 1/14 (H) I suppose Flex cannot fill that hole as a bit too undertuned for your raiding needs? Roll a DPS, become non-committed and do Flexs?

That's one of the possible future scenarios. Problem is I'd also like to avoid the temptation of pushing further... We'll see...

Not really a frustration (I am not that bothered) but all the Flex runs in trade asking for ilevel 530+ and the normal mode achievement.

So it took a month to get back to the WotLK level pug runs then? LFM Naxx 25 must have gear score 5 million!

You'll probably be levelling in the next expansion as retribution anyway :)

I did the exact same thing, quite frustrating as the weapon just popos up when you kill him. I tickected a GM and they told me to politlely bugger off.

What's worse is that now i'm never likely to see the protection loot since i'll just be winning random BOA wepaons from now on (on normal at least).

As someone has stated, it's likely that you will be leveling as Retri and not as Prot, and usually when tanking stuff the weapon isn't a big concern, so you should in theory be happy you got the ret one ;)

I must admit i formed a run with even higher requirements, i think i asked for 550ilvl and at least 11/14 clear. I don't see a problem with forming a run with requirements that suit the type of raid i'm trying to lead.

I think i levelled from 85-90 as prot but tbh i can't remember. I;ve give the axe to my dk, so it isn't to big a deal tbh, and anyway you can't upgrade the BOA weapons with valor.

There's a really simple way to deal with people wanting normal achieves for Flex:

A)Openraid
B)Oqueue
C)Make your own group

Edit: Also whoever itemized mail caster gear this tier needs to fall down a flight of stairs.
