Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios

Feb 29, 2012 Organizing Raids So... I find it some times to be very difficult to get a raid going with trade chat alone some times or some of the pugs that want to join the raid just don't make the cut. Does anyone know of any other global "raid recruiting" resources to try and find other raiders now that we have cross realm raiding?Angelalexa0 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Heroic Zon'ozz 10 man Our group consists of: Prot Paladin Holy Paladin Disc Priest Resto Druid Arcane Mage Fire Mage Hunter Rogue Frost DK Arms Warrior Two questions so far we've only had 1 night of attempts. 1. For ball bounces should we do 7-5-5-5? 2. How should adds be killed? Raid lead and I want to do this differently. We have melee kill the right most adds and range kill left most adds then rogue on claw and it seems claw seems to be dying before the eyes. My method would be all work on the same side when we get flails killed and then kill claw last. We tank the boss on the claw for cleave damage for both strats.Azuzin2 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Ultraxion 25 man trash bug? The roleplay didnt go off and when we taunted down one dragon as we proceeded to kill them approx 8 would come down with no one taunting. Then in a few seconds we were seeing about 15 dragons fly in at the same time. We have done this before on 10 and 25 and something is wrong anyone else run into this.Modbank0 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 So uh.. this trinket thing.. is it real? Windward Heart I can't actually recall ever seeing one drop, and I'm hearing stories about this everywhere as well. Is the drop bugged or just.. really.. really low?Rain39 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 How about adding old raids to Raid-Finder? I'm not suggesting you suddenly add a "Raid-Finder difficulty" to all of those old Raids or anything. Rather, it can be difficult to find other players who want to run these instances, yet they're obviously out there -- we just need a means to group!Terin3 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Raiding Idea Please don't rage I am brand new to raiding and I am mainly a pvp mage. Would y'all agree that using valor points as cqpoints is a good idea until I get my whole data set then going for pve gear and just start pve with jp gear AND THIS IS A WEIRD QUESTION BUT I SEE THAT JP GEAR HAS NEAR SAME STOCK STATS AS RUTH. PVP GEAR IS THE JP STILL BETTER FOR PVE?Cløüð1 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Looking for raid changes. I believe that there should be a better system for loot in LFR. My main point is people coming into the raid with their friend and having them need on an item, and since they get the role bonus, they have a better chance at winning. If they win, they give to their friend for their offspec. I'm not trying to whine or anything, but this is seriously ridiculous when the only time you have a chance to raid is through LFR because of real life issues, and that one upgrade you've needed for weeks drops and it's pulled from under you by someone that already has the item, just for it to be given to a friend. (Inb4 run on sentence.) Also, how loot works for bosses. I believe that you should be able to complete LFR again and get a chance to loot off the boss, even if you already killed him, but only if you didn't get any loot off of it. inb4 LFR cry baby. I put in my work through BC and Wrath as a full time hardcore raider, 4-5 nights a week, 4 hours a night. Nowadays I just have real life responsibilities and other things that prevent me from raiding hardcore.Hezzindia13 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Desumetal's Stupid Idea of the Week: LFR 40 So I had this idea in another thread, but it didn't seem to be in the spirit of things, so I'm gonna repost it here. Someone once said that LFR is like LFD times five. So a thought hit me: why not make a 40m raid out of four 10m raids? I was drinking, if that gives you any indication how well-thought out this was. One of the more common complaints (I leave its veracity up to the reader) is that 25m raids were hell to organize, and 40m raids more so. On the other hand, ten man raids are very easy to organize, even on the fly, but they don't feel epic. And then we have this new tool called LFR. The question is, can we put it to good use? How about epic raiding without the epic management issues, epic drama, epic organization, or epic wait times? I present this scenario. Create a 10m raid: not five, not solo, but ten people. Enter LFR as a group, get queued into a 40m LFR-only raid with three other 10m raid groups. Individual Raid Leaders can join up cross-realm with other Raid Leaders via Real ID. Upon entering, you will have one raid leader, three main assistants. Tanks are selected via chosen role, some are demoted to DPS if a secondary spec is chosen. Same applies to healers. Once ported into the huge raid, a 2m raid prep session starts. All raid wings are three bosses long, to prevent issues with trash. LFR...loot issues can also be addressed. Guilds colluding for loot? Congrats, you're now going up against three other groups of equal size doing the same thing. Trolling in raid groups? Kick one member of a group, kick them all. Too easy? Choose your difficulty level: Casual, Normal, Heroic. I admit, that idea just came out of my head out of nowhere after a B-52 bombing run (I mean, we do this kind of crap in Alterac Valley all the time, but this time it's more organized), but all I'm thinking is instead of kissing a well-loved raid format goodbye, why not find another way to make it work using the tools Blizzard has given us?Desumetal16 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 29, 2012 Rotation of 3 Darkmoon Faire dungeons? Its just an idea but it would be awsome if every time Darkmoon Faire came, there would be a rotation of 3 dungeons, each one could be way diffrent from the other, you could also bring back people like Mr Smite and stuff. For dungeons you can have an air ship dungeon be the first one (containing cartoon like battle ships and levitating platforms that are connected to each other), another one would be like a jungle with all sorts of exotic animals, and the last one could be like a real circus battle including battling elephants, mobs dressed like clowns etc. Idk just an idea but i would like to see what people think of thisLitis6 Feb 29, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LFR Issues. 1) so... when will they put that maly teleport out of hagara? 2) When will loot be balanced? I see some people getting 3 gurthalaks while others get none, since they are always rolling against 6~10 people in the raid... and why can a protection with 397 souldrinker win the 390 gurth against a unholy/arms/retri with a 378 weapon? That's not looking like balanced lootsAlphamale4 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Dungeon penalization Was told to post this here. I want to express my disgust with your system regarding dungeon abandonment. Tonight I joined a group and was unaware how the first fight went. So I was kicked from the group. No big deal, I understand. So, I tried to requeue and found that I now have a 30 minute wait because it says I abandoned the group. That is complete and absolute garbage and needs to be tweaked. Just because I don't know something, I'm penalized from playing? Your system is flawed. I hope that by not ranting and raving maybe it will get attention (although I doubt it, other than flaming and umad comments). A possible solution would be to give the option to debuff to the players performing the kick. Simple yes or no "does this player deserve the deserter debuff". I'm sure it would be clicked yes sometimes just so people can grief others, but sometimes it might not be (I wouldn't unless deserved) and that would be fair. Kind of like our justice system, tried by a jury of your peers :D tl:dr ~kicked for things not my fault should not result in 30 minute ban. Gallin12 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Scourgelord Tyrannus should drop a Frost Wyrm Like many others, I have long wanted to obtain the Frost Wyrm from Wrath of the Lich King's Log-in Screen. It just occurred to me, how perfect would Scourgelord Tyrannus be for this? He would be like Northrend's Baron Rivendare, and it would not fulfill a dream for many people disappointed by the ICC-Achievement mounts, but would also provide something else to keep players busy until Mists of Pandaria. How about it, Blizzard? :DMaldazzar10 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Question re: Role Bonus in LFR So I'm not writing this because I expect someone to intervene in a loot issue, I'm just curious if the way role bonuses work are listed somewhere? It was my understanding that the role bonus would give a player a +100 bonus on need rolls if the item is for them and the specific role they queued as. Apparently this is incorrect as yesterday I was in an LFR and Timepiece of the Bronze Flight (Int/Spirit shield for Holy Paladins and Resto/Ele Shamans) dropped. A ret pally, who was listed as DPS, won the roll. He was immediately told by another player to give it to a resto shaman because that player was 2nd highest roll, had a 359 shield, and "it's a healer shield." In reality that player was 3rd highest roll, I was 2nd. I have a 359 shield. And that shield is as much for Ele shamans as healers. A few days prior I was in an LFR on my warrior tank and blindly needed on Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, thinking that there's no way I would get it unless by some miracle no DPS who use 2h swords rolled need. I ended up winning it over DPS Pallies and DK's. I scrolled back, found out who the 2nd highest roll was, and passed it on. So obviously either the system is buggy or my understanding of it is incomplete.Lytaa12 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Re-queuing right after entering a dungeon I recently came across a situation that I hope will give some food for thought to the Dev Team when it comes to improving the Dungeon Finder. I queued for a random WotLK dungeon and entered Nexus as a healer. I was excited as I had done Utgarde Keep repeatedly and change was good. As I was picking up the quests, the leader of the group started re-queueing us for a Specific Dungeon, The Old Kingdom. I asked why we are requeueing when already in Nexus. He was bored with Nexus apparently and wanted to do something else. I then raised a question why he queued for a random if he didn't want to ACTUALLY DO a random and said that I queued for a RANDOM because I wanted the extra xp and JPs. I would not oppose the idea if he wanted to re-queue for a Random. I understand that the GMs do not get involved in the disputes between players and that the kick system was used as it was designed in that matter. However, I still got a Dungeon Deserter debuff for not even doing anything wrong. A capricious player basically wasted about 30 min of my game time because he abused the system successfully and suffered no consequences for it. My suggestion would be to prohibit re-queuing for a new dungeon while in a FULL random group right after entering one or for some specific period of time. Thanks for your consideration!Shakalle2 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Raid Finder Loot On a number of runs I have rolled for loot and had other who have the item also roll for the same item then straight after they have rolled they leave the raid. On a number of the times that this has happened the person that wins the item is the person that has left the raid. Is this being looked in to? Maybe with a fix that once you leave the raid your roll is invalid? I'm finding it is leaving a bad taste of poor sportsmenship just rolling to spoil the chances of others to progress in tooling up their toons.RegardsGlumbloomGlumbloom6 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Blizzard's idiotic dungeon journal I commented on this in another thread, but thought it needed its own topic. ... Thoughts on this? I know one of the most irritating parts of any encounter was telling the first-timers "watch out for this" and they'd ask me what it looked like. Putting a graphic in the dungeon journal would help things along immensely.Desumetal26 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 I feel like im slacking looking the logs from my last raid and i feel for my gear i should be doing better. can anyone help me? log:http://worldoflogs.com/reports/tnym2ynev2lalha2/dashboard/Dalyeth7 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Unblance on looking for raid (DS) I have played for WOW most 4 years, recently I found that looking for raid really is an unfair service for players. Everyone come into the raid can either rolling for their freinds or rolling for dischant. Frankly, I really have a method can solve out the problem whcih is lower gear people can have a priority to roll in the raid. For example, if you obtain a gear on the frist boss, you will probably lose 50 maximum range on rolling second gear and the range will decrease from (1-200) to (1-150). I actually think that the method will be really helpful for setting a balance game enviornment.Cpker4 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Am I just to mean or are people to dumb? Ok so when I run heroics on any of my toons, old vet 85's & newly 85's I make sure to cap on valor points every week. Whether that be through lfr then df or just straight up df. At least twice if not 3-4 times on each of those toons someone wipes the group because of a stupid mechanic or they didn't pay attention. I let it go once, twice I correct them, third time I rip them up. Some days it'll only take twice to set me off. I mean generally I'm whats considered a "@#%#" at my work but playfully people say that, I can confirm that. But I mean are people just careless? Am I the only one who thinks this? I mean I'm a human being I make mistakes, but even murozond says it himself "To repeat the same actions and expect different results is madness" And yet this happens so much it boggles my mind...Vynlann7 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Request for a blog about LFR I'd like to see a blog or post about LFR, and if it's having the intended effect. (i.e. Fun!) LFR is an amazing piece of technology. It's easy to use, successful at getting more people into raiding, and good for filling item gaps. However, the people in LFR are rude, impatient, and feel entitled to the world's fastest clear. I dread running it. When the smallest things go wrong, raid chat explodes with trash as foul as Patchwerk. Even on smooth runs I'm irritated at the end and glad it's over. I'm an experienced raider and put up with the irritation to help progression. However, if I was new to raiding, I would get a very negative impression of what raiding was like in Warcraft. In summary, LFR is convenient but not fun. Carlrov2 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LFR tank/healer fish for a 3/4 complete? I always try and fish and hope for a group on the final boss for an easy 250 points. Anyone else? I usually know that means the group is kind of fail if they are breaking apart at the end, but i roll the dice.Baene0 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LFR + Malygos = ???? So I'm in this LFR right now on my hunter, and this guy summons the raid to the "Eye of Eternity." I canceled since I was already there (hur dur running is hard), but the people that took the summon proceed to click the Focusing Iris, start Malygos, and then wipe in Phase 3. Many lulz were had. Just had to share this since it's probably going to get fixed eventually.Thecheatt9 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LF cross realm 25man FL raid Looking for someone cross realm to help set up a cross realm 25man FL raid. If anyone is interested and think they can get people from their server to go as well reply back or send me in game mail to either Vladimir or Twystedfate.Twystedfate0 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Technical issues with LFR So I don't know if i'm the only one but to me LFR is unfriendly to us players who can't afford the better computers. My issue is that I want to start gearing my tank set since I have need for only 1 or 2 items from LFR that would benefit my DPS set. Problem is I can't tank LFR because it is only a 25m option. To tank you have to be aware of everything going on (I know LFR is easier but still need your raid awareness) and that isn't possible in a 25m for me seeing as, even with my graphics set to low, it lags to hard for me to really realize what is going on. This becomes a problem when people in LFR take it seriously. I don't blame them who wants to wipe over and over? Anyway my idea is to open an option to do a 10m. Make less loot drop, everything stays the same just easier on the computer and doable for us who don't have the better system and can't afford it (tuition + books dry me up x.x). Does anyone else think this would be a good fix?Semiaj11 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Crusader Aura in LFR: Did I miss something? Last night I did my first Fall of Deathwing LFR run. It went really smoothly, but something weird happened before the first pull. While everyone was getting ready, I looked at our buffs and noticed that we had a 'Crusader Aura' on. As we got closer to the pull, the buff wasn't being changed to something else. I posted "Crusader Aura" in raid chat. A couple seconds later someone replied 'for spell haste'. A second person agreed with him and a third said 'yeah 20% haste is huge in this fight, bro'. One or two more concurred. All of these people were from different servers. No one argued against having Crusader Aura so I didn't say anything else. I didn't want to start a chat war since I have not raided in a very long time and I've never raided as a Pally. I was just weirded out by how many thought CA was a benefit. If everyone arguing for CA was from the same guild or server then I could explain it as a group of misinformed friends grouping together. The fact that they were all from different servers made me worry that either I was wrong about a pretty basic buff mechanic or that I was running with a larger group of people who didn't know how their buffs worked. The raid progressed without any problems so in the end it was a non-issue. My first question to the forum is: Am I right in my understanding that Crusader Aura offers no benefit in a LFR (or any) raid? (Assuming the answer is yes) My second question is: Has something like this ever happened to you?Furstuun8 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Addon/macro for Ultra (H) + Yorsahj (H) 10 Hello! I'm in a very small somewhat casual guild (1 night a week, but that's mostly because everything is cleared in 2 hours lol) of veteran players that have just started Heroic modes in Dragon Soul. This past Tuesday was our first attempt at Morchok and we two shot it. We also tried 1 attempt at Heroic Ultra and almost 1 shot it as well (40% healer wipe due to a miscalculation of CDs). Tomorrow we're going to kill H Ultra and H Yorsahj (10 man), so today is homework day for me, taking notes in my notebook for tomorrow. I downloaded a very handy addon that many people have mentioned for H Yorsahj, that lets me pick what slime to kill and a little text of what to do after. I'll probably go through about 20 videos taking note of which ooze people are killing. If you have anything helpful tips on that I would appreciate it. (Yellow or Green??????) We have a DK tank/ Prot pally, DK is offspec dps, pally is offspec heals. Which way do you think would make it easiest? 2 tank/2heal, 1 tank/3 heal, 1 tank/2heal? Paladin is a bit more geared, however the DK of course has the magic CDs. Our dps is on point, but we may be bringing a new member (dps) that is somewhat undergeared. I was wondering if there was something similar for Ultraxion in the addon department, so I don't have to have our poor mage, whos one of our top dps, keeping track of whos turn it is next. I remember in wrath I used a stopwatch macro for one of the achievements. Does anyone have one for Ultra that I could kindly borrow? I'm hoping to down him before rotation even gets ingrained in our minds, and it would help a lot in future weeks incase someone switches out. Also with things getting even easier tomorrow with the nerf (sad about this), assuming we do everything quickly my raiders might like a wipe or two on a 4th boss or maybe even work on it. Hargara or Zon'ozz?Koristusgg15 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 How I gamed the Raid Finder loot system... ...and everyone was OK with it. I wanted the Wrath of Unchaining. Really wanted it. A DPS simulator (femaledwarf.com) showed that it was a huge upgrade over my Starcatcher Compass. However, it simply never drops in my normal mode (10-man) runs. In the raid finder, every single bear, kitty, boomkin, rogue, elemental shaman, enhancement shaman, and hunter gets a need+100 roll, and there are always plenty of those guys. I ran out of patience. Clearly, doing things the normal way, I was never going to get it. The pandas would come first. So, I decided to game the system. Having worked out the usual ways to make gold, I have a lot of it, and can get more easily enough. So, I started a PuG Raid Finder run, with the following rules: If you trade the trinket to me, you get 15,000G. If I finish the raid with the trinket, everyone in the raid gets 1000G. If the raid ends and I don't have it, everyone gets 500G. Anyone eligible for the Raid Finder can join, even if they're already saved. I gathered 17 damage-dealers, a bear, and a few healers. There were some mages and warriors ineligible for the trinket. However, filling up the raid like that completely eliminated the possibility that anyone from another server could roll against anyone in my partial raid (well...unless we got another bear). The healers made the queue shorter. We ran the raid. The trinket dropped. A rogue traded it to me for 15,000G. Once the raid was over, we met in Orgrimmar, and I paid everyone 1000G each. I was happy I finally got my trinket (even though I know I paid too much). The rest of the raid was happy they got gold and the usual loot. Nobody felt cheated afterwards. I highly recommend this procedure for folks who have more gold than they can use, but want gear, especially those last few hard-to-get items. There was one possible problem: The rogue could have refused to pass it to me, but said he did. Or, I could have taken the item but claimed he didn't give it to me. If this comes up, you can look at the armory. It shows that I obtained the item, so there's the evidence over whether it happened or not. The other possibility it to not pay people different amounts depending on whether I got anything or not.... Of course, I'm doing Spine on Normal mode tomorrow morning, and I'm sure to win the 397 version of it. That's just how it goes.Kathucka30 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Lol, things sure have changed (alt gearing) I hit 85 last tuesday at around 2am and spent the next few days playing my main. Two days ago I picked up where I left off and tried tanking my first dungeon at 85. I had something like an ilvl of 310, just over 140k hp, and barely any idea what buttons to push. It was an intimidating experience to say the least :P Fast forward 2 days, I have almost 200k hp (with blood presence) and I'm tanking LFR and getting ready for normal DS this week... I'm not saying it's any amazing achievement or anything. As someone who's been a hardcore player since launch and doesn't have many alts, it's just a weird experience going from a fresh max level character with no idea what I'm doing to tanking a raid boss for the first time, all in the span of 2 days. (and not being half bad at it :P) The game sure has changed in the past 7.5 years. Not sure if it's for the better but I guess I'm having fun.Gorlaktuk5 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LFR Loot Tables 3 caster daggers and a healing mace dropped on Madness. Can a DEV actually look into LFR and maybe I dont know fix some of the issues. Its been out how long now??? I am sure it would have been cool if the entire raid were casters. Crap like that makes LFR seem like a waiste of time with your role bonuses being applied to the wrong Spec items and allowing people to just get carried by wearing AH blue pvp gear......Amoktsu30 Feb 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012 How many other people raid with game sound? I ask this because, one of the things I noticed the other day when I was doing a 10-man DS PuG on an alt that I wasn't playing as well when I had the game sound muted so I could listen to music. I'm not dogging anyone who does listen to music or TV or whatever works for them while they raid, but I have always felt that the boss itself makes the best raid leader as their emotes will tell you nearly everything you need to know. I find it visibly harder to keep 100% focused without the game sound. Do other people feel this way? Are there a lot of people out there who play without game sound at all? And would they be better at pushing the button while fighting Ultraxion and what not?Zukov9 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Ultraxion 10 achieve + heroic questions I was going to ask some heroic questions, but doing basic math answered that. So instead.... nobody can get hit by Hour of Twilight more than once for the achieve. Hour of Twilight is cast every ~45 sec. The last raid for which I had logs, the fight on Normal lasted 4:08. I remember last week's fight being closer to something like 3:48. So, presuming we can do it in 3:45 (nice round number), that means we'd need to survive 4-5 Hours of Twilight. We'll say 5 for the sake of argument, not to mention likely deaths. So there's 2 tanks. So that's 2 out of the way. It's 300,000 irresistable damage. Raid group will be: Prot Paladin Prot Warrior Arms Warrior Hunter Boomkin Rogue Mage Holy Paladin Holy Paladin Me (as Elemental for this fight, normally Resto) So from the remaining 8, we need 3 more hits. Both Paladins could theoretically use Divine Shield and the Mage could use Ice Block and the Hunter could use Deterrence? I suppose the Rogue could feint....so yeah....lots of potential options. What do you folks think would be best? And any tips on heroic mode, which I know we'll be attempting? He does more damage, has more health, an extra person has to deal with Fading Light. How would you deal with needing 2 folks out per Hour of Twilight with the above comp? Icy Veins says 3 groups of 2 people will be needed to rotate. ThanksAdun14 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Stock thread complaining about losing loot I lost a piece of loot in LFR. I'm angry. I'm here to lodge a formal complaint and explain why I'm more deserving or the person who won that piece of loot was less deserving than me. I think the people on this forum will care about me and my plight. I think that Blizzard might actually read my thread and give me the item I lost, or at least take this long suggestion of a "fix" I have proposed for the LFR loot system and implement it in the next patch, because I am a genius game designer. I need to get fully geared out in LFR loot so that I can sit around Stormwind/Orgrimmar with it. You must understand that my sit around town epeen needs to be large. In closing I'd like to say thank you DnR forum. If you reply to my thread disagreeing with me, I will counter reply with angry retorts about how you're trolling elitists.Fogrum16 Feb 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012 Blackened Defias Armor First of all, my backstory. I had the chestpiece on my rogue last year. Took an extended break, heard about transmog, came back and...boom. Blackened Defias Armor is no longer on my toon, in my bags, or in my bank. Put in a restoration request and it turns out, they don't keep logs back that far (to the time when I stopped playing) and so they can't do anything. Oh, and then, "by the way," you can't get it in game anymore. Ahhhh! Very sad rogue:( Gripes and complaints out of the way....can we bring this back?:) Seeing as it isn't actually Vanessa's armor, maybe have it randomly drop from a chest or something within the cabin after the fight? That would make sense lore-wise, imho. "Old Sea Chest" or something:)Evalicious0 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Please Remove Item Trade Function in LFR Every week, every boss, people roll need on gear for other people in the raid, or take items they already have(or better) then attempt to sell it to same server raiders. The system is broken. If you removed the ability to trade LFR items it would remove both of these issues. You should also make all of the non dual wield-able items unique, so people that already have them cant take them again to be rude. The LFR system is a great idea. It gives casual players a way to experience the game without time commitments. But losing every item I'd like to people that already have it, or are just passing it along to a friend, is really ruining the experience. And whats up with prot paladins/warriors being able to get a +100 bump to the 2h sword? Broken, broken, broken.Tunguepunch35 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 LFG design change Hello, Can a design change be made to the IF/Layout for the LFG feature in regards toward queuing for specific dungeons. There are so many heroics that it takes up the whole menu making it easy to overlook unchecking the non heroics; forgetting to scroll way down to the bottom. This causes confusion when queuing for a specific heroic to find oneself entering other dungeons, then getting hit with the 30-minute deserter debuff when leaving those dungeons.Kreyll1 Feb 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012 Other Raid Finder Mechanic Question For some reason when I go through the Other Raids finder and I check all of the raids, I seem to get this weird thing happening where it unchecks all the raids and then ques me up for only one raid. Is that normal and I'm just being an idiot or is something wrong?Dakenon0 Feb 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012 Loot Distribution: LFR (THE FIX) take this as a QQ thread, don't matter to me, i'm speaking on behalf of anyone who has ghetto luck. Roll Bonus: one time effect on each tiered piece, per character (until you win that piece) Plain and Simple. People who win the tokens are going to put them towards their main spec, this gives other people's main specs a chance to gear them. Too many people win the same token multiple times, have 3 different pieces of it, and win more to "trade" with other's in the run. Guildies/Friends share rolls. This simple, simple solution will give everyone a REASONABLE chance to get gear for their MAIN SPEC. And say you are actually in a run where some one doesn't need the upgrade... It's fair game again!!! This is all. (this is directed to Blizzard Entertainment) I expect Ninja Enthusiasts to thrash this fully. For the RNG hippies, RNG will still fully apply to this method.Åtma1 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 Monday PuGs and quitters...grrr. Ok, I'm going to complain about Monday PuGs and quitters. So, I've finished 6/8 in Dragon Soul for the week on two different toons. Time for a PuG to finish up before reset. I could use the trinkets and weapons. But, they're a huge headache. First, even on a high-population server, it takes ages to the the PuG together. Healers are particularly rough to find. It's Monday. Most of the really good players are done for the week, so you take what you can get, remove the terrible ones with missing gems, etc., and replace them. Then you have to get everyone in Vent. For some reason this takes forever. Then, wait for them to change the kid's diaper, walk the dogs, peel some potatoes, etc. Then, summon them. Bad news if nobody can summon, since the Stone is so damn far. Explain the fight (Spine) for some people who don't know it on Normal difficulty. Assign roles for breaking Grip, make sure the healers know why Searing Plasma is so bad, etc. Distribute food and flasks. FINALLY, it's time to pull. Naturally, because it's a Monday PuG and this is an execution fight, you'll wipe. Usually, it's due to someone going flying during a roll, or an extra amalgamation. That's normal. People have to learn the fight, and, on Monday, the only way to fill a PuG is to take someone and train him. They need to practice. But THEN, the really annoying part happens. People leave without a word. After one wipe. POOF! GONE! What the Hell? Of course we wiped on the first attempt. It's MONDAY. Why stick around so long only to leave after ONE WIPE? Then, you have to replace the wimps who left, and run through the whole Vent, Flask, Food, Summon, Roles, Training thing again. So, since you have new people, of course you wipe again. Then people leave again, usually the ones who just joined. Occasionally, they'll say something insulting before they go, but they usually just vanish. At that point, you'll often get people quitting because other people are quitting, in a chain reaction. Then it gets even harder to rebuild the raid. Then, you get to start again. Next time, I think that, once I get a raid together, I'll just tell everyone, "If you're going to leave after a wipe or two, please do it now, so we don't have to replace you in the middle of a raid." Today, I spent more time hunting for replacements than I did fighting, and I didn't like it.Kathuckae4 Feb 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012 Heroic Morchok Starting on heroic morchok and just wondering how people would divide this group composition up tanks: druid, pally dps: arms warrior, arcane mage, boomkin, destro lock, hunter heals: pally shaman druid the boomkin can go heals for this fight if we need to 4 heal it. Our first night of attempts our boomie went resto and we 4 healed it. He used barkskin to soak stomps on the side with the feral tank (morchok side) but we were having problems with him staying in position to soak and heal at the same time. He was undergeared for both specs (just transferred from horde side and was primarily pvp before this was his first raid since toc) but performed well enough that he'll be fine. I think I'm fine for soaking, but can be better. I'm horrible with macros. Does anybody have a good macro to swap a 2-hander out for 1 hander/shield, switch stances and activate something like shield wall? Then switch back? Is all that even needed or is just flipping to defensive stance for the 10% reduction enough? thinking groups will be: feral tank, arms warrior, druid/pally healer,mage on morchok pally tank, shaman healer, boomie, hunter/lock on korchom. This gives us a soaker (boomie w/ barksin and me) on either side and a hero effect on each side.Khahan15 Feb 28, 2012
Feb 28, 2012 42684xp for Stonecore normal?? I queued as random normal on a level 84 tank. Zoned into Stonecore at last big trash pull before final boss because the last tank was bad (so they told me). Fine... We clear trash, kill final boss. One person gets the achievement for the instance, and I get... 42,684 total xp for the partial-run. That seems broken: shouldn't I get the xp bonus for running a random even if it was partial? Only thing I can think is maybe they skipped some other boss so it doesn't count as completed?! (But the other player got his achievement!) Oh, and I couldn't queue for another 8mins after this because I was on random cooldown. Anyway, this is minor compared to the massively-broken stuff still in the game, but seems like it should be fixed: if you kill final boss, give the random-instance XP bonus and don't put players on CD.Kinelope6 Feb 28, 2012
