H Jin'rokh down! :D Got some work on H Ji-kun, though that'll wait until next week.

A couple of tips for the former that I picked up: if you have the ability to prevent the Ionization debuff (Cloak, bubble, Iceblock, etc)...don't. Save that ability for the dodging bit. Requires a bit more coordination with your healers, but worth it.

Secondly, on the dance...stand in one spot and strafe left and right to dodge rather than running all over the place. Much easier.

I keep bouncing between my DK and monk. I really ought to pick a character if I want to start raiding again :X

On an unrelated topic, now that Spartacus is over, I don't know what to do with myself. My life is...meaningless now.

My mind went to the gutter with what this topic was referencing

also

By the end of the fight, the bats swarm is so dense, it's like 1 bat flapping a 100 wings ... then you die, and they spread like a locust consuming the raid lol

So I was trying to find something to clean out of my gear bag to make room for tier legs (My gear bag is jam packed with "Waiting until I'm ready to break 4 pc" items) and I realized I've had a new weapon for 2 or 3 weeks and the prismatic socket is still sitting in my bags.

Love those moments.

Thank goodness they only happen on my healers.

Last night was just not my night. Midway through Horridon I find out my basement's leaking (and I'm sitting in my basement to raid). Take a break to figure things out, find a hole in one part that is gushing water like it's a hose. Standing puddles in my room. Someone goes to get one of those vacuums that work on water so I figure I'll do another boss. Kill Council, bow out for a replacement while I deal with the standing water. Get it all taken care of, come back, get invited back for Ji-Kun. Ten seconds into the pull I lose power. Then another storm rolls in while I'm sleeping and now my bedroom is under an inch of water. In 20+ of living in this house I've never seen anything like this.

EDIT: And it's still raining! :(

FPS problems at every Lei Shen pull. Disabled Skada, still happening. Disabled everything but elvUI and WeakAuras, still happening. Not just to me, to a lot of people in the raid.

Fixes itself by the end of the first Thunderstruck, but SO BAD and SO ANNOYING until then.

Yeah, it seems to be a common issue. I've heard its everything from stormlash to stampede/army to boss mods. Would love to know the cause.

I've heard several players from my raid complain about that ... but I never had any issue with it.

So it's probably an addon or a combination of addons.

I raid on a toster and I'm safe from the lag out mechanics for the most part \o/

The hardware's not as important as the software.

Are you running Toaster XP, Toaster 7, Toaster 8 or NetBSD?

I LOVE IT WHEN MY FEVER IS HIGH ENOUGH TO CAUSE WIZARDS TO VISIT MY BEDROOM


Be less sick. But on the 'fever' subject, I was running a pretty high fever on election day, and I went to go vote, and was trying to explain to my cousin afterwards how the election machine was trying to talk to me but I was ignoring it...

Also:


Oh believe me I told him to put his big boy pants on, (then linked dmg done, taken, healed along with pointing out that my co-tank and I were the last alive) and said this proves I deserve the belt more than you.

Side note, I love being able to negate Static Wound.


Warriors can do it too.

Twice.

Sometimes I need a PW:S

>.>

But I have gotten pretty good at timing a double barrier when the other tank gets thrown


Just taunt back right before throw, nps.

Eh...We did that some pulls and it seemed worse.

If he gets thrown with no debuff, I'm at low stacks (~3-4) and can barrier / max range and probably not even take a hit before it falls off.

If he takes the throw he gets a 10 stack while im still stunned

If I take the stun, then mine drops off as the stun drops off, and he gets his debuff and then I taunt back and he's already in the puddle.

The only one that's tough is the 2nd one, the timer is just never right. I get it 'most' times, but if I don't I just use a cooldown and he taunts when the stun if off. It works really well on heroic too, reducing the amount of AOE damage that goes out.

BUT if you can already reduce it with AMS and barrier then there's prolly no reason for it.

Sounds as if you live near me.
