Letting my account run out in December. I've pretty much seen enough shit over the past 3 days to prove the following to me:

A)The leadership makes questionable (and in the case of this evening) absolutely batshit insane decisions.
B)That raid group that was murderizing ToT heroics and would call out each other on shit and wanted to give 110%? Yeah that's gone.
C)After 9 years of this game I'm pretty much just done. I've got a hell of a lot better things to do than sit at my computer wondering if tweedle dum, dee and doodah pick up a boss mechanic after 15 wipes.

I probably could bring these things up but at this point I don't have it in me to care anymore. This game over the past month or so has plummeted so far down my priority list that I can't find a fuck to give quite honestly.

So I realized after like 10 battles in IoC as horde, I realized I was never going to get the IoC Veteran as horde, so I moved my rogue to alliance and went 50-1 so far.........

It's insane how dominated this bg is by alliance and makes me wonder if AV is the same way.

So... I re-upped my account for 30 days (not the frustration.)

My frustration: learning that there are random items throughout the Isle of Thunder that use up those blue collection items (I forget the name, but Taran Zhu wants you to collect 3 for a quest) to summon a boss of some sort. This wouldn't have been a frustration if it didn't just do so automatically by you clicking on it and warned you that you were about to use up the items... instead of completing Taran's quest... I'm now down 3 of those items and up 1 death...

Went to Isle of Thunder the other day to make a weapon and it was deserted. Every rare was up and it felt like I was playing an offline game.

Well any returning player has to hit Thunder Isle sooner or later due to the legendary questline ;)

Rant inc because after sleeping on it I feel like sharing:

Normally I would have just overlooked most of the minor things but last night was fucking blatant. One of our best healers has been out for a couple weeks and was told by the RL that the minute she was able to come back she'd be back in the group. So what do we do last night when she is on and we're trying to progress on Protectors? She sits for someone to heal ON THEIR ALT instead of their 565 warlock who does a ridiculous amount of damage being told she'll be brought in after H Sha (we 2 heal both H Noru and H Sha). A whisper to the raid leader stating "so why is our best healer not in here again?" gets a response of "we're gonna stick with this tactic for a bit" and which by "a bit" meant the entire fucking night.

Oh but wait it gets better. We wipe because people couldn't focus fire Sun down before the heal went off. That's right. We failed the arguably easiest part of a heroic fight. After that pull we never got close again. GEE SURE GLAD WE BROUGHT AN ALT HEALER INSTEAD OF THEIR LOCK THAT DOES 370k ON THAT FIGHT!

There's no focus. There's no communication (I had to yell at people during Immersius to speak up during the fight instead of waiting till a wipe for someone to say "well so and so was out of range"). There's no accountability. Quite frankly the leadership is nonexistent. This raid group has went from promising to dumpster fire in 3 months.

Hanging around on the Timeless Isle, minding my own business when Theck and his band of cronies come around and start ganking people around the Celestial Square while staying just far enough away to avoid drawing guard aggro.

Well, technically it was the Shaman with 600k HP(!? Since when did casters need that much HP?)that was doing all the ganking while Theck was probably alt-tabbed calculating their odds of victory(The number was pretty high).

Unfortunately for Theck's Shaman buddy, I killed him/her with my ultimate attack and departed the Island.

Guess I can just hang around doing nothing in the Shrine instead.

I like to kite those people to the area with the Ordos priests, and then stun them in front of the fiery cleaves. They lose their buff, and get a repair bill.

Don't you have to be flagged on the Isle to be attacked by those people? And if you do, and you are, shouldn't you expect to be attacked?

(Or maybe I just have an incredibly nice server...)

you do, and i agree..on both accounts...

i have been ganked WAY more on terenas than i ever was on SC (but iirc SC is balanced faction wise, where as terenas is fairly heavily alliance favored)

Did something change? I remember the moment you're flagged into pvp combat, you don't take dur loss from dying to a mob.

Very annoyed by the fact that it's impossible to have a shared gear for Holy or Disc.

Spirit heavy gear for Holy? Can't get below 99% mana as disc.

Crit or Mastery heavy gear for Disc? Holy does shit HPS in order to not run oom, or does strong HPS but runs oom within 3 minutes.

Yes and it's Tichondrius so we're always flagged. But I'm still always terrible at PvP, so I tend to either run away or let them kill me.

I was posting out of mock frustration, but mainly because it was a Theck sighting.

I re-upped to experience the content I haven't experienced... this includes Isle of Thunder. So telling me to skip it and move on is pointless.

So shouldn't your frustration have been that you didn't kill Theck before heading to safety?

Or did you...? :mrgreen:
