Pretty simple idea.

Instead of everyone posting "hey guys check out xxx on my armory!" we're going to have this thread to post in.

You get a drop, respec, guild downs a new boss, post it here! We wanna hear about stuff like that!

Try not to rag on people in this thread for things they think are accomplishments; if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all (in this thread Smiley: laugh).

Try not to spam this thread, but congratulations will be in order for some of the things posted, so that's acceptable. Stories are encouraged.

So to start us off, I'll post my arena accomplishments of today.

First off, 1701 2v2 arena. My priest finally gets it. It's like that hallelujah moment, the sky opens up and sun shines down on the arena and you just run around steamrolling teams.

Story time about the game that got us to 1701.

So we enter the arena, and the first enemy that pops up on Proximo is a shaman. A resto shaman. Healer bane of all rogues, along with resto druids (@#%^ abolish poison, seriously).

Next pops up a warrior. MS, obviously. The clincher in this case? He has Stormherald.

Right away I'm telling my priest to LOS the warrior on the pillars (thank god we were in Nagrand) so he comes for me while I try to DPS down the shaman. I get him to blow NS on himself all the while my preist is running the warrior around the pillar.

Then the warrior gets fed up; his shaman is losing mana, he's not doing any damage, so he comes for me. I pop Evasion and switch DPS to the warrior. With SnD going, he's got a stack of wound poison and crip on him in the span of a few seconds and I get rupture going followed by a 5 point KS and with my priest healing me through MS, we get him down and then get the shaman down as he ran out of mana to heal the warrior.

Anyway, other than that I got to 1626 with my 3v3 (in 16 games). Looks promising, but I had a rediculous amount of fun tonight in 2v2.

edit: btw, here's a screenshot of what my honor pane looks like tonight. Smiley: grin

nice work, on a much smaller scale note I have been working hard on trying to get my resilience up for my pvp set. Last night I got my last honor piece putting me up to 350 resilience which is a benchmark I kinda set for myself about 2 weeks ago. Now to try and get that like 75k honor banked for 2.3

Grats on the resilience. I'm still sitting at 226, and currently I'm working on the arena points for a s2 shanker.

I'm trying to get like 30-40k honor by the time 2.3 hits so I can at least get 2 pieces of s1 gear, if not 3 for the 10 energy bonus.

At 3k honor a day, I'll be set by the time s3 rolls around.

I really like the idea of this thread. I just got my first character to 70 and into Karazhan, which was a huge deal to me. Feel free to scroll to the next post if you don't care, but its a good story.

I got a spot in the guild pug run (6 guildies, me, a rogue, priest, and a warrior. Important later) and on the first night the Blade of the Unrequited dropped from Romeo and Juliet. A non-guild rogue, guild hunter, and myself all needed it and so the loot master had us roll. The non guild rogue rolled a 6, I rolled a 87...then the guild hunter rolled a 88. I was understandably crushed (I was using a 64 blue dagger), but the hunter said it would be a bigger upgrade for me, and let me have it. We ended the night at curator due to time issues (early morning work).

The next night we have enough for a full guild run and we convene at karazhan ready to go. We go to jump in the side door...and go straight through the portal. No zone in, no nothing. After a brief wtf moment, we looked down and saw "Transition Failed: Instance Full". After considerable attempts to zone, two of us finally get in...and come face to face with eight members of another guild. Not just any guild though. The pug warrior from the first night's guild. They had decided it was easier to ninja our raid then do their own. They had the curator down by the time we got there, but had gotten no further.

After considerable heated debate with the guild, nothing was resolved. A stalemate was established due to the fact that we weren't going anywhere and they couldn't 8 man anything. The other guildy and I sat down somewhere out of the way and hit the space bar every 5 minutes for the next several hours.

The next day apologies were issued by the other guild (who is remaining nameless because of the apparent sincerity of the apologies) and our raid was allowed to progress. We wiped several times on Aran (we kept getting adds, blizzard, polymorph, and arcane explosion chained. urg) but eventually made it to the prince. We promptly one-shotted him (is he disproportionately easy for a final boss or is it just me?) with the only complication being the last infernal came down on his corpse, killing our master looter (lmao).

He dropped the rogue t4 helm.

There was myself, another rogue, and a shaman that needed it. As I was typing "I understand, I'm the new guy" into raid chat, a miracle happened. The other rogue said, "I'm an alt, so..." and the shaman said "It's not a huge upgrade for me..". With the phrase "take it noob" it happened.

I had my t4 helm.

The satisfaction of that event was incredible. After godamned months of pure solo leveling while clueless, I had a tier item. It was awesome.

Thats my story, I apologize if you read it all and were disappointed. I had not realized it was going to be that insanely long. As I said in my previous posts, this ia all thanks in a large part to you guys. This forum is a gold mine of wonderful info.

I also thank my awesome guild, who, in spite of the fact that we're small and not nearly to the standards of the other guilds on these forums, is an awesome group of people with a great atmosphere.

Edit: I learned to spell

My rogue alt is level 12! Smiley: tongue

One hot day in August, there was me bored at work, browsing the Alla forums as I always do at work, when this strange thing happened, I got this crazy idea of rolling a rogue!!

Fast forward to present days, I´ve convinced my best friend to roll twin rogues with me, a nice pair of cute blood elves. ^^

Of course, as you can imagine, "lol, twins!!" are following us everywhere Smiley: glare

Apart from that, it is a really nice change from my main, mage, and priest alt, getting in close combat gives a renewed feeling to the game.

And also playing with your best friend and growing our babies together is quite nice ^^.

Thanks to all the people that made and contributed to the stickies and the forum, it really helps to know what weapons to use, how to equip them, and where to put those first points and the next ones Smiley: clown

My inspiration may have come I think from my great GM, which seems to me, as inexperienced as I am, a pretty capable rogue: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Hellfire&n=Kagerou


I'll keep you posted on my progress, I am sure you'll see me with a n00bish question topic soon Smiley: grin

BTW theo, I like your interface, I need something to clean up my action bars, which UI is that?


and gratz arundel - prince is insanely easy if you get lucky on the infernals, but if you do not have the best of luck you can wipe on him with a full t6 raid really. [kind of a stupid encounter]. Also, nightbane is the final boss :D

Got my rogue to 60 finally. Got a few nice upgrades of some Outlands greens and jumped headfirst into the Hellfire quests.

Next on the agenda is some farming of Ramparts to get the 3 dr5ops I need out of there and to get to level 61.5 hopefully. I seem to have hit a point in the Hellfire Horde side quests where i'm a level low to really do them without struggling.

Oh and congrats Demea and Teddy, add me to that list as well.

I got a free 2's team. Me and a priest friend (Scarvin) went 12-0 (still going) and boosted it from 1450-1642.

EDIT: 13-2. Stormherald war > me. Full epic huntard > priest.

Yeah, hunters are extremely dangerous to priests. Leaving them alone will get you a loss pretty easily. Smiley: grin

In other news tonight, I finally got Edgewalkers. <3 Moroes.

I also got T4 helm, but I'm poor right now, so I'm going to have to wait on getting my new mask outfitted.

Kara cleared (every boss) in 4 hrs 40 mins. PuG run (mostly guild, but 3/10 were PuG members), too.

This will be very basic and old to most of you but I had a "enlightenment" moment on our last Kara-run.
Bar that an argument arose btwn our MT and MH that in the end resulted in both of them leaving the Guild, having our OT and Healading + about 3 others leaving (this is destroying the guild btw), I had the best run ever and not because of loot or downing anything special.

It was the first time our guild-shaman came along for the ride and he tossed (on my request, been hearing so much about it I wanted to try it out) Windfury Totem. At the same time I requested the Blessing of Salvation instead of the usual Blessing of Might that the pally throws on routine.

Oh my!

What an INSANE amount of damage you can do with those both combined! The tank only needed about 1-2 seconds and I could get right to it and just wail away!!!

The windfury procs all the time and I am finding myself just giggling like a 12-year old who found mom and dads stash of candy!

In the end, our insanely geared Lock beat me on Damagemeters but I was truly seeing the light and am currently stalking said shaman with "The Rock" in my hand, proposal-speechnote in other :)

Today (well, I haven't gone to sleep yet, so it's still today to me) was a good day in WoW. I woke up, and about 15 minutes later, my friend called me to fill the last spot in a heroic Ramparts run. Well, that's the only heroic key I didn't have at the time, so I logged on, and the group ran through Shattered Halls up to and including the first boss so I could hit Revered real quick. Got my heroic key, and we spent the next couple of hours dying and learning (the hard way) what kinds of CC will and will not work on different mobs in Ramparts.

Unfortunately, the world server crashed while we were in there, and it bugged the final boss encounter. Basically, the two guards at the end of the bridge that agro the boss when they die kept respawning. We killed them for about 10 minutes for some easy rep, then called the run.

During that run, I got a whisper from the Kara 1 team leader asking if I was available to down Curator tonight. Of course, I said yes, and sure enough, invites went out right on time. Unfortunately, our MT got disconnected, and our backup took 20 minutes or so to get everything she needed. Then she got splattered on the first trash pull, so our OT became our MT, and did a fine job with it. We got to Curator and wiped twice because the DPS wasn't burning down the final flare fast enough, so we didn't do enough damage during Evocation.

The third try went swimmingly well, but unfortunately, the healers ran out of mana right when he hit 15% (one of the healers was a enhancement shaman who we coaxed into respeccing for the evening). We wiped at 3%. Three ******* percent. Still, it was my first time in Kara, and I was second on the damage charts overall, but only because of those mana wurms in the Curator room. Mages can AoE, and I can't, GG. However, I was number one for the boss encounter by far.

In short, I got my last heroic key, and finally stepped foot into Kara, doing fairly well for my first try (or so I think). A good day in WoW.

After going through a few guilds in the past few months, I joined one last night (after talking to leaders for about a week) that's comprised of basically all the old server-first raiders when TBC came out, who have recently come back to the game.

I was already saved to my last guild's kara, so I can't help the new guild finish tonight, and I missed Gruul's last night due to a bachelor party (not really sad about that Smiley: wink) that the new guild did with a few filler members of a fairly progressed guild on our server, but things are looking up =)

This is noob-sauce compared to everyone else, but its big for me. I got my first ever mount in WoW. I've been playing about a month now, and loving rogue and finally hit 40 (I had more than enough gold) and now I can move around faster.

Oh plus getting adrenaline rush was nice, that ability is sweet.

Nice, glad to see that guild is working out for you man. Once I get back into game next week, hit me up! If you guys need anything I think we sometimes have some extra subs on, and I'd always be more than happy to fill in for stuff like gruul/kara if I'm on and you need an extra rogue with some experience.

Another long one guys, but again worth it. Some of you will hate me though.

I was going to do a Heroic mana tombs pug, but after 2 wipes on the first boss our tank and healer bailed. I went into LookingForGroup to attempt to replace them (groups only happen if you do it yourself) and saw "need dps for pug gruul". I figured, "Ah, what the ****? At least I'll get to see Gruul's lair and get some experience raiding a 25 man for when my guild starts." So I pst the leader and got in on the raid.

Now, as a side note before I go on, kudos to anyone who ever ran effective 40 mans. I tried for the first 5 minutes to be tuned into the "bigger picture". I failed. Badly. By the time we got to High King, I realized that there was no way I could effectively do that. I ended up just putting my head in the game and just doing my rogue thing the best I could.

The high king was interesting, first shot we wiped (mainly because it was the first time for most of us) but finished with little incident the second try. He dropped the leather helm, and the other two (not rogue) legs. I roll on the helm and promptly got owned (I rolled a 7, a 100 roll won). We then proceeded on to Gruul. duh duh DUN

Most of us had never done it before, but the guild running it had us on vent and had a great leader issuing orders. The first attempt, we wiped at 56%. The second attempt got us to a mighty 37%, at which point the running guild were thrilled with their new best. The third attempt started great. We fought and fought and fought, and got him to 5%, at which point all, the tanks promptly died. The remaining raid got him to 3%, but the wipe was final. The forth attempt there was a miscommunication about the hunter's misdirects, so myself and three other dps were oneshotted in the first 10 seconds. Ouch

Attempt 5 was similar to attempt 1 and 2, eventually resulting in our demise. At this point many people have to go so they can go to work tomorrow. The remaining members decide that this is our last run of the night. After we get a bunch of replacements, we go time 6. It was a mighty and epic fight, worthy of legend in the oldest of scroll, retold from father to son for all of time.

We finally killed Gruul as a pug. Everyone I've talked to said this was impressive. He dropped some wrists, the pally legs.....and the rogue legs.

The rolls for the wrist came in, with me rolling a 1 (seriously, the first time I've ever even SEEN a 1) and lost them (d'uh). The rolls went for the pally legs, and then the rogue legs were up. All the rolls came in, mine a commanding lead of an 80. Then a 81 pops up.

My heart stopped. Completely.

Suddenly, another miracle occurred. The roller or the 81 said "jk, I'm a lock". I won the roll. I won the legs.

As I write this, I have just traded with the scryers for my legs. You guys have no idea how many times I've had to rewrite whole paragraphs of this because I keep hitting the wrong keys. My hands are shaking that much. I'm like a puppy at the pound, but I just got picked to go to a warm and loving home, with acres of green lawn. woot.

I also want to take another opportunity to thank everyone here. With all the knowledge I've gotten from reading these forums like a mad person, I wasn't even mildly unsure about exactly what I had to do.

So, in summary, this post marks roughly the moment where one week ago I dinged lvl 70. I have two peices of tier 4 armor. You guys all rock.

After going through a few guilds in the past few months, I joined one last night (after talking to leaders for about a week) that's comprised of basically all the old server-first raiders when TBC came out, who have recently come back to the game.

I was already saved to my last guild's kara, so I can't help the new guild finish tonight, and I missed Gruul's last night due to a bachelor party (not really sad about that Smiley: wink) that the new guild did with a few filler members of a fairly progressed guild on our server, but things are looking up =)


Nice, glad to see that guild is working out for you man. Once I get back into game next week, hit me up! If you guys need anything I think we sometimes have some extra subs on, and I'd always be more than happy to fill in for stuff like gruul/kara if I'm on and you need an extra rogue with some experience.


Thanks, we actually had Critalin members in for the Gruul's run, not sure who exactly, though.

The guild's comprised of the old Memoris Mortum and Funky Bunch players who have come back, so we have some experience under our belt =) I'll hit you up when I see you on

Great thread and gratz to all!

My Rogue accomplishment for this weekend is that(finally) got my medallion trinket. Two min cd and +Resilience ftw! As a casual player this has taken me a long time to get, and my Resilience is now at a lowly(but slowly climbing) 127!

It's making BG's much more fun, pretty much every fight now I can break out of a CC.

My guild just downed Vashj. I was benchwarming at the time, but still a pretty major milestone in BC progression. Working on Astromaner in TK now.

I was out in Netherstorm farming Primal Mana for some arcane resist gear when I got called into Kara a bit unexpectedly. By that, I mean I got a whisper from the raid leader saying, "hey, we need a DPS for Kara. Stop farming and come along."

We downed Shade of Aran, and completed the chess event (which is hella fun), but I have to get up early tomorrow for a test, so I didn't get to stick around long enough for Illhoof or Prince. Either way, I got a druid necklace for PvP (it has stam on it, and my current necklace does not), and more raiding experience. What's better is that, even though the rest of the raid pretty much vastly outgeared me, I was still #3 on the charts (yeah, I know, Shade is the melee fight, but I'm still happy with sticking so close to the other rogue).

Picked up the Humbert's helm, got nethercleft put onto my leggings, and picked up a ring from sfk. Also got crusader and +15 agil put on my torturing poker, and + 9 stamina put on my barbaric bracers. Now all I gotta do is get to 29 and do the quests for my chestpiece, gloves, and Arena Battlemaster. :P

I'm trying to get like 30-40k honor by the time 2.3 hits so I can at least get 2 pieces of s1 gear, if not 3 for the 10 energy bonus.

At 3k honor a day, I'll be set by the time s3 rolls around


I read there was a blue post, where they said players who have banked 75k honor might be able to get 3 pieces of S1 gear when 2.3 rolls around.

Might :(
