I need 724 haste rating with my flex Thok's trinket, or 485 haste rating if I get a N-WF Thok's trinket :/

I am also apparently too stupid to see that I can reforge a bit of mastery to expertise...

D'oh!

21250 haste, 2558 hit, 5173 expertise, with T16 4p and the tank cloak equipped.

I recorded our Klaxxi kill last night (here). Made me cringe when I saw myself not refresh EF despite taking heavy damage and having 5 stacks of Bastion of Glory.

Anyways, sprinkling a pinch of salt on the coffee grounds cuts the bitterness during the brewing.

Heretic.

'Nyway, quick Frustration - I was planning to replay DA 1 & 2 to prepare a save for the upcoming 3.
OF COURSE, the game got corrupted in the meanwhile, and the install is 2 hours long.

Tomorrow, maybe...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Most of you know, I'm a one man online selling "thing" where I work. I run the site, the ebay account, the amazon account, any other accounts.
This is a story of how frustrating some of our clientele can be. I have tried to write phonetically to capture the man's tone.
Sometimes, departments forget to tell me when we are out of stock on things. It happens. You've seen the pictures> There is no POS system here. A POS system wouldn't work.

Well, a guy sees that we have wooden flare crates (military flares) on our site. He drives here (even though our site tells you all over the place to call for availability, that we are a surplus store, that inventory changes, blah blah blah blah.

He gets here, and wants some. We tell him we are currently sold out.

"BUT I SAW IT ON YUR WEBSAIT AT MY HOME"

Yes sir, I haven't had a chance to tell our internet sales that we are out of stock.

I DROVE AN HOUWUH TO GET HEAYUH, AN I WANT MAH FLARE CRATEZ

Sir, I'm sorry, we're out of stock.

BUT IT'S ON YUR WEBSAIT

Yes, and when I call him, they wont be on their anymore.

WELL, IMMA GO HOME AN OOORDER ME A CRATE!

Sir, he will just refund you.

NU UH. ITZ ON THAR, HEZ GOTSTA SHIP IT TO ME

Sir, we can't ship something we don't have.

WELL LET ME SPEEK TO THIS INTERNET PEOPLE

(I'm standing there waiting to deal with her about a special order for a customer. I walk over, introduce myself, put my hand out to shake his, and ask him what crate he was looking at. He tells me. I pull out my phone, load the site, and pull the crate up. I knew it was out of stock, and marked as such. I sold the last of the previous shipment, and marked it then.)

Sir, I have that crate marked as out of stock on the website. It has been marked as out of stock, and that we are taking reservations for the next shipment that comes in.

THAT IS NOT WUT IT SEZ ON MAH SCREEN.

Sir, It has said that, on the website (log in, check the edit history) since September of last year.

YALL JUS TRYNNA GET ME TO PAY MORE.

NO sir. I don't have any. I'm sorry.

At which point, he goes full on hillbilly spittle throwing screamer. My boss walks over. I explain what happens, and my boss says Sir, I heard you from 200 feet away, through an 18" cinder block wall. You need to calm down.

I JUZ WANTS MAH CRATE!

Sir, both the department head, and the online salesman has told you we are out. I don't know what else to tell you.

YOU CAN KISS MAH ASS.

And my boss, who is a "big" dude (6'5", 270) looks at this guy, and calmly says. "Sir, You have 10 seconds to start walking towards the door. If you don't, I'm going to help you leave."

IS THAT A THREAT?

No sir. That's not a threat. It's a invitation for you to leave my store. If you don't, I will help you leave.

WELL WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

See the name on the side of the building? That's my father. If you want, I can call him down here, but by the time he gets down here, he'll be a lot less nice than me. He doesn't like the cold weather.

At that point, the owner (his father) shows up. Apparently, I'm going to his house to take some pictures this afternoon (yaaaaaaaaaaaaay). He sees the commotion and walks over, in time to hear the asshole say

GITCHER DADDY ON THE PHONE THEN. I TELL HIM TO KISS MAH ASS TOO.

The owner, an army vet looks at him and says. 1 pause. 2. pause. 3.

WHAT U DOIN OLD MAN?

4. Giving you a chance to leave before this old man kicks your ass out of his building. 6.

WHAT HAPPENED TO FIVE?

7. i had to talk. 9..

OK OK OK OK I'M LEAVING

Moral of the story.

Don't piss off an army vet.

So my mother asked me to call an A/C company today to find out what the hell is going on, they're offering a huge rebate. They sent her a letter and everything. Quoted her a price. But somehow, they won't "allow" customers to have that price if they're also getting a Costco rebate. I'm not a member of Costco, so I'm somewhat confused if this is a mail in thing with Costco, or what. But she couldn't understand their voicemail. And I'm off today.

So I'm checking my email to get the information to call this company.

I have an email from my high school best friend. "Have you ever had sex with my husband?"

I have not the words my first reaction. This is the same guy who wound up being the primary reason I opted to no longer be their roommate and assist with their household expenses while she looked for work and he went to school.

(After my reply, it appears that her mother was thinking he and I were, and I moved out because one of us got bored with it...what the hell.)

after those two, my frustration seems rather benign

we are up to garrosh, and a bunch of people decided to come back and want to raid again...so we are forgoing actually progressing on garrosh to work on gearing these people up...

im all for gearing people who want to raid....but when you come back after we are finally to the last boss and expect to raid instantly, there is something wrong with that
i think we should push for garrosh and get him down, then start working on getting gear for the new people

its gotten to the point we are sitting mains for people who have half the gear and 1/3 the dps because they could use gear from a farm boss, and we end up wiping on said "farm" boss due to a combination of dps dying and just lack of damage
its taken us 3 weeks to get back to paragons, but we got our second blackfuse kill last night and hopefully we will get our second paragons kill tomorrow night and start working on garrosh again
Image

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.

Was debating whether succes or frustration..

Cancelled both accounts (will run out beginning of march) - haven't logged in for quite a while, so the upkeep is not really something I think I can justify right now - still want to return to the game, and likely will when I know enough about WoD to see a release date or return for the beta or somesuch.

So the frustration? that I fell off the game for some reason (well not "some reason", raid collapsed, so end game is pretty dead without raiding at all now...)

Was going to go look at and test ride a new bike tomorrow. Went to the bank to withdraw the money, and apparently there's a daily withdrawal cap.

Guess I have to wait until next week.

If your bank is open, ask the teller to up your withdrawal limit. They may have to get their supervisor to approve it, but at the end of the day, it's your account and you can request any amount you want. Banks usually lower the withdrawal limit if they notice a customer not taking that much cash time after time.

It's a credit union not a bank, and I was trying to withdraw the money from a different credit union that's in the same 'network.' It's the other union that has the withdrawal limit, not the office that I visited.

At any rate, it's too late now, they were about to close, and I can't do anything about it until monday, and I don't have time to check out the bike until next weekend now.

First: Link

OK, my first thought after reading this was: "Holy HoPo, I get to point and say 'See? This!'"

This should be required reading for DK tanks and possibly Monks too, if Keg Smash is still OP. Anyway, my co-tank/guild leader is a DK who out-gears me, so "^^^".

Our only problems are on Garrosh. We can laugh off how she pretty much solos the trash packs throughout the raid, since no one dies and we move on. However, when she starts on Garrosh, lays down Death and Decay, spreads diseases, and spams Blood Boil, all at high vengeance, I'm left sitting there just looking pretty.

Our solution was to switch picking up adds, so she starts with Garrosh, I taunt Garrosh when adds come out so she gets first adds with vengeance, she taunts Garrosh when second adds come out and I get them, etc, so high vengeance on all adds. Sounds good, and it had been working so far except now she doesn't switch her main target from Garrosh to any of the adds, so all her hard hitting abilities (already at high vengeance while I'm at none) stay on Garrosh, and she ends up with adds AND Garrosh, me with none. I taunt in vain, hoping that 2 SotR back to back and maybe a 3rd procced from DP will let me steal aggro, maybe. I taunt up to three times sometimes, getting a paltry amount of vengeance from whatever melee swings I get during the fixate, then new adds come out and I can't get them. I just don't have the vengeance. I taunt and hit Avengers, Holy Prism, Consecrate, and I steal 1-3 adds. Then I loose them just as fast, because, Blood Boil/DnD.

We've done Garrosh once before, and we've come back to it again after a bit of flux in raid attendance. We both have done this fight together. Why I can't get through to her that she needs to stop spamming AOE when I get adds, and get off Garrosh when I get boss, I don't know.

Yeah, the snap aggro issue has been mentioned here before... though i think I remmeber someone saying we were ok and that holy wrath needed no change. might had been someone who tanks with a different class.

What you mention is not really a snap aggro problem but a vengeance issue.
If you got no vengeance and the other tank is at 200k+ vengeance, doesnt matter what class you two are, you get destroyed and outthreated by the other tank whose abilities hit 4x harder than yours due to having 5x your AP.

Avenger's Shield is our snap aggro. Yes it'd be nice if Holy Wrath wasn't a meteor but AS usually gets the job done. 4 targets? AS and Judge. 5? Add Reckoning. More than that is rare outside trash.

Just look at Malkorok 25H - no other tank can single handedly pick up 3 adds at the same time from 3 completely different locations (AS, J, R). Maybe a monk, but then the adds would be slowed.

Unless they are a Monk. In which case five Keg Smashes are enough to rip threat back.
