That's because the correct accepted spelling is Judgment. WoW is full of the misspell for modern english.

Most frustrated because I can't seem to find decent healers in PUGs and/or the guild (the good ones allready have regular people they team up with) so any attempt to get my last 6 badges I need for the libram dies before it even starts. JUST 6 MORE!!! (2 UB or SP runs) I think I should pray more.

Today I'm entering Kara for the 2nd time. Again 1% away from uncrushability (and missing lots of stamina as I need to compensate the other 4% i'd get from the libram) and the word "fail" is the only one I can think of.

I come needing to vent after a rather humiliating night in SSC and TK...
feel free to completely ignore >.<


I find myself getting sick of having to prove myself week after week. I believe myself geared to the point I could run circles around them, yet I'm constantly overlooked and left til last thought.

VR attempt. I requested shaman in my group three times, and to go first to maximize my threat to its best potential.

No shammy
Warrior in first
No MDs to me.

And he goes off at me, "Well our other pally tank always stayed 4th"

I'm sitting here thinking...
"The other pally holds a 40 spell damage kings defender and didn't know what uncrushability value was until I taught him other day."


I feel I'm slowly burning out trying again and again to explain I'm not just some worthless fill in bot.

I'm genuinely into my tanking and want more than I'm being given. I've pushed it with the RL/MT, and I'm really not sure how much further I can push it before he just outright ignores me.

Barth is pretty full on pally tanks. I fear if I risk looking for another placement I'll be left high and dry, I'm ready for BT/HJ, I don't wanna go backwards...
That and I've made a handful of good friends here I'm loyal to.

I take failures on my part really personally, I found my effort on VR especially depressing, yet I don't know what I could have done to improve it when my base helping features weren't attended in the first place.


-Again, ta for the vent forum. I needed it >.<

Last night I found out how the term "huntard" was coined.

Daily regular instance (not ready for heroics yet) last night was Botanica. Again. After having a miserable time in there the night before I thought I'd give it another shot, so I queue up the LFG tool and go repair and buy supplies.

In about 10 minutes I get a whisper from a druid healer looking for a tank. I accept the invite and when my unit frames come up for the group I'm floored.

Druid with ~8k hp, Rogue ~9k, And two hunters with ~12k HP... I have 10k.

When I get the summon I see why. The hunters are decked out in S2-S3 Arena gear. (This can't be good)

So we zone into Bot and the clusterf*** begins. I start with BoSalv on EVERYBODY. Then the hunters whine wanting Wisdom. So I comply, and I no longer have threat control over anything.

After 3 pulls this way, BoSalv goes back and I explain why.

3 more pulls and I have more threat control but the hunters are still peeling off individual mobs from me. Then they start with the damage meters trying to out dps each other.

By the time we hit the first boss, The druid and I try to talk some sense into them, I'm pretty sure the druid was having a manic time trying to heal me and 2 hunters.

Surprisingly we downed the entire instance. And only 1 TPW happened when I pulled one group of demons and one of the hunters pulled the other group at the same time >.<

I'll take the W for the instance and the daily, it wasn't from skill though, just sheer DPS. I just wish the shoulders had dropped while I was there.

Please, for the love of my sanity, DON'T cast a pyroblast so it slams into the mob moments before my shield bangs them in the head, and especially DON'T go doing it to the mobs who didn't get hit with the AS!

And really, if you MUST have aggro, and you find out you are dying, please see this new thing that Blizz gave to all mages. It's called Ice Block.

I have a very simple solution for that kind of behaviour.

I learned the hard way last night that having a horrid shadow-specced priest healer who couldn't find the greater heal buttons when I was Mortal Striked and a frost mage that can't find his AOE buttons does not go so well with trying to aoe tank stuff.

I don't think it is using British English specifically, or else I would have expected to see more "u" letters inserted in some words like color, etc. Everything on my end reads in primarily American English unless it is for a character's personality (pirates for example)

I'm tired of my GM's switching melee dps out on fights like Prince and Curator because "Its too hard for melee right now, when our ranged is geared enough, they can come"

Give the rogues/warriors a chance man.

I love my guild and all the people in it but...

We have Kara on farm currently (I know not a bif deal to a lot of people but big for us) and basically we're stuck on what to do next. We really need to get into 25 man content but we only have about 15 dedicated raiders. Which is 10 too few for 25 mans and 5 too many for Kara or ZA. Its just one of those situations where we need to figure what we want to do as a guild but no one seems to want to answer that question.

I'm sick of finding one of two things in pugs for heroics:

1) Noobs who barely have any blues, but have the honored key

or...

2) Jackass raiders decked in purples who are farming badges whom I have no hope of holding aggro against. Last one the healer had over 2000 healing bonus, and was pulling aggro with every heal. Then they split after the first 5 min, which means I wasted 2 hours in lfg.

(and I'm at 12k health, 14k armour, 485 def, and using the S1 gavel...)

Perhaps it is time to go Ret and pvp

You'd think you'd occasionally get a group like this where they'd say, "Let's show off our mightiness by destroying this instance as efficiently as possible", but instead I always seem to get "Let's show off our mightiness by showing how badly we can play and still barely survive".
