Did Saurfang last night with a pug, peaked at 9K dps, held 7600 steady, in frost of course.
In Arcane, I peaked at 13K, but my consistent DPS was much lower at 6500ish, due to mana concerns. I've determined that without a Disc priest, frost is at LEAST numerically equal to arcane at this point in time. With a Disc priest, things get craaaazy.

I know 7600 doesn't sound a lot to you 25 man raiders, but I'm very proud of myself.

Grats, now just save up to get rid of the legs and get the better set pieces and replace the legs with offset ones :-)

Not much of an achievement, but I hit 50 tonight and finally got my pet Puddles. Cant believe how much of a damage increase it is. Against Erannikus in Sunken Temple I done 11.1k damage, Puddles done 4.6k the next dps done 4.5k. It made me smile. The huntard doing 1k damage didnt make me smile. It made me fear for the future of humanity.

I completely forgot to make a post here, but my Mage dinged 80 two days ago!

Now I need to figure out how I'm going to get what kind of gear and what field of play I'm going to use him for.

Decided to bite the bullet and swapped guilds.
Got my first Marrowgar and Rotface 25 kills, already had Deathwhisper - Saurfang.
New guild is on a DKP system, so even though around 5 things dropped for me, I didn't stand a chance in **** of getting them.
As frost, I managed to stay around 11th DPS in my meager 10 man gear (I was the worst geared person in the raid). 7200 on Uncle Fester on our best try isn't too shabby IMO.

They will come around again and you will get them for next to nothing or will have some DKP at your disposal when they do drop again.

Don't get me wrong, I despise the system, but it's not something I'd leave a competent guild over. More upgrades will fall from the sky in the near future.

Downed Putricide and Princes, and saved Dreamwalker for the first time in 25 man. Also did ToC25 for the first time and got my trinket from Anub.
25s are boring compared to tens, but I can't say no to the better gear :(

I find that 25s are a lot more hectic than 10mans because there is less space to spread out, etc. They are also generally harder than 10mans because it is easier to put together a great 10man than a good 25man.

It just feels like there's 90% less pressure. No drive. The fact that a person can die even on a fight like Putricide just takes some jazz away from it.

I agree about the 10 vs 25 thing.

For me in 25, it seems like there's always a few people who are either new, not paying attention, easily frustrated or inconsistent. There are simply more people who could be worse than I am. Getting to 25s content that is really at my skill level hasn't happened yet, it's more of waiting for everyone else to catch up. On 10s, there were definitely moments when I had to learn things... fast.

While we're on the subject, I dislike 25s as well.

A) Boquaz' argument is true for me; it's easy getting 10 people together. It's fairly easy getting 10 GOOD players together. It's easy enough to get 25 players together. It's impossible to get 25 GOOD players to get to actually make progress on harder 25-man stuff.
B) Jay's argument is true too; there's a bit less pleasure. It feels kind of meh when our two most failcake DPS die in P1 on Putricide and we still down him because we've got a couple of kickass DPSers carrying their asses.
C) 25-mans are so **** hectic. Especially as a healer, it's way easier to focus on stuff in 10-mans. In 25-mans I just feel like I need to be a druid spamming Wild Growth to actually be of any use to my group healingwise. There's simply so much to heal and so much healers that I barely feel like I'm making an impact. Half my heals are being sniped anyway.

That said, to stay on-topic; we totally one-shot Sindragosa and the Lich King today. That was unexpected. We spend the rest of the evening attempting Algalon again and doing some leftover Ulduar hardmodes. 18%. Looks like he might be going down next week. 3/4 achievements I really want.

I love the 10 vs 25 talk and I am also glad that it isn't just me who gets frustrated at people who just want to be carried through the content. We have DPS (no idea how) who are only pulling 5k in fights like Festergut and are well geared.

10 man - Up to Lich King. In previous tiers we done TOGC with more than 25 attempts left and Ulduar we only have Yogg+1 for the achievement/drake and Algalon to kill
25 man - Only done first four + Festergut. In previous tiers we couldn't kill a single boss in TOGC and Ulduar we never killed Yogg on easy mode

Congratulations Anobix. I think you will get some hardmodes down. Marrowgar/Airship arent bad, Blood queen isn't bad if you were well ahead of the enrage in normal. BPC just needs a good strat that minimizes movement by everyone(and we find it easiest to use a feral druid to gather nucleii and tank the shadow casting boss). Rotface just gets crazy at the end, and Festergut is much easier now that you can see where the goo will land.

By the way I was looking at your WOL and didnt see you on a lot of the parses, do you raid fulltime? We have been looking for a very knowledgeable/skilled 11-12k dps mage hint hint. =)


We made a couple of pulls on heroic LK this week, it wasn't pretty at all. Hoping to have some time to put into it next week to see where we actually stand on that fight right now.

We just merged guilds with another guild that was in the same situation we were (15-18 good raiders plus 10 carries) so we have come up with a good group now, although the raid times are still too late for me (East coast on a PST server... 10-2am for me atm).

As for why I wasn't in WOL, I was off last week with our rotation and will be on Wed/Thurs this week (we raid tues/wed/thurs).

I believe we are shooting for:
Marrowgar/Gunship/Rotface/Festergut/Dreamwalker/BQL

lol, holy **** your realm is horde-heavy.

Thats actually why I am on this realm, late raid times on west coast. I use to be an officer in Final Chapter on Rivendare but couldn't do the 2-3 am ending raids anymore. Server I am on now is in Boston, and I raid from 8-12 wed,thurs,mon.

Server is very horde heavy, it got this bad after faction transfers opened. Was always horde dominated but there arent too many alliance left now. PVE wise though this server is extremely good with 3 guilds at 11/12 and 6 more at 9 or 10/12 heroic.

Nice, it's a PvE realm as well (getting tired or PvP realms, tbh, and my wife hates it). The only negative I have atm is that I'm not sure if I will be sticking with WoW after Cata comes out, nothing has really grabbed my attention. I would hate to transfer over to be in the guild for H:LK and ruby sanctum. Even if the raid times are far superior... that being said, if a stop opens up and I am still playing come Cata I will definitely transfer over as I can't do the raid til 1/2am thing anymore (been doing it for 3 years now).

That is definitely a problem. I spent one more week raiding after downing LK 10 to get Sindragosa down 25 and see some heroic 10 stuff, but I'm also on the East Coast raiding with a West Coast guild. So, it was time for a little break. My guild is ~80% friends from college, so it's just something I live with.

What do you think of the potential change to 10/25 loot equalization and combined lockout?

I don't quite know right now. I find that the 10s groups that I have participated in progress faster (because the content is easier for almost all of the fights), so the ability to get the same loot isn't bad. Although I do enjoy being there with 24 others instead of 9 others (even though with just the 9 others it seems more social as you don't have to talk over as many people). Sharing the same lockout sucks, but it makes sense if the places drop the same loot. I think it will effectively kill 25man raiding, or severely hurt it.

Saturday I finally got in a ICC10 group in my new huge guild. It was essentially a scrub run, for people with either relatively fresh 80's or people like me who don't know the fights. We got up to Rotface and wiped on him a few times before calling it for the night. I quite enjoyed myself, and I also managed to walk away with this gem. Pretty stoked bout that, because with it plus the ring you get for getting friendly with the ashen verdict, I am now hit capped without the blasted Ulduar trinket. I'm actually 2% over capped now, which is a nice change lol.

Pigtails, if you can raid late, try to get into the Tuesday nite Sparkle Magic/Taint Invaders/Taint run. We only got to BQL this past Tuesday (only H BQL and the frost wing + LK to go), but it was our first run under this leadership. It's a very laid-back run. Drop a note to papershoes in-game for a calendar invite if you are interested. It's a 25man run with mostly alts who have mains who've downed most everything. I think we're going to try to go again Sat nite, not sure.

My latest "accomplishment" on my mage was my first piece of 277 tier. We had to wait till one of the tanks got all 5 of his before the rest of us could start rolling on Vanq. wooT! Got the Phylactery too (normal) last week. If I could get one of the haste trinkets, I could die happy. A little over 800 haste is killlllllling me!

Thanks for the offer Trilliandent, but my account is currently frozen. I'm broke and can't afford to pay for the game again until late September when school starts back up and I get my financial aid. At that point I don't know how late I'll be able to stay up to raid either, but we'll see. Smiley: smile I'm just thankful I don't have to pay to stay in the beta, lol.

My guild finally joined the rest of the progression world at 11/12 heroics in 25man with our sindragosa kill last night. Heroic (277) phylactery went to yours truly!! I'm not sitting at over 1500crit with over 900 haste (phyl+mauradin's) or 1360crit +1025 haste with phyl+dfo(264) tough choice - rawr is telling me to go for the crit!

Next week should be 25man drake achievement time with some initial work done on 25H Halion!

So I figured I'd post this for the rather new players. I play a mage, started playing in November of last year. I noticed I caught on exceptionally fast, and the game was something I loved. It saved me money for going out all the time, and really interested me. So I stuck with it, hit 85 and got into raiding. I left the guild I leveled from 1 with where I made great friends, and went to the number 3 raiding guild on the server, only because the GM had a friend and told him I had potential. So I went here to raid where I began to see a little raid time, and got some nice gears. And even at 3-5 il's below my competetion was significantly ahead. I decided after I got a taste, I wanted more. I searched the web not even knowing where to find another guild. Found WoWProgress. I found a guild that was recruiting mages and at the time was 10/12 normal mode. I was only at 3/12. I made the decision to transfer to another realm and staying with this guild clearing 11/12 normal modes. This guild I had joines was a new 10 man of friends and one night I logged on for raid, and the guild was disbanded. Lucky I spent alot of time at the training dummies and some of the mages from the top guilds on the server had made chat with me, ran randoms, told me I had potential, so I decided to just make a leap. I decided to go Horde, and I decided to go to the #1 server in the world. When I got their I was amazed, groups were already pugging Nefarian. I joined up with a guild by a recruitment thread, applied and was accepted. I cleared 3/13 with this guild where I again made some awesome friends, and if this team could have had a couple of people replaced, it would have really accelled. But it began to wither, until, progression halted, people argued, it just took all the fun out of raiding. I had met another Mage on the server, who was in a 10/13 hm guild, and as most of you know 3/13 and 10/13 with heroic nef down, is quite a leap. I decided to give it a chance, and joined up with this guild. I probably have to say I spent the most time in this guild and made some of the best friends I've had in WoW to date, I progressed with some of the hardest content at that time with these guys, and succeded with all but Sinestra and AC. After Firelands came out, we had ALOT of drama start in the guild provoked by 2 of the best players leaving and 1 quitting. People began not logging on for raids,we were forced to take several bad players in, it just wasnt fun at all. I kept the friends I made in that guild talked to them and decided to leave. I am now playing in a 6/7 HM firelands guild, who is workin on Heroic Rag Progression and very close to a kill. Which even though the main hype is over, the top 35-50 guilds in the world......What a trip it has been, and if you want to be good at this game and get to the top, the main thing I can tell you is, Be Honest. If you want to raid at a top level and your current guild isnt there, your friends will understand that's what some want, and be happy for you. The people that are mad, dont really care to begin with.

Hope you dont hate me for my wall of text, and I hope you enjoyed the story, hope it makes somebody realize it's not that hard.

Indeed.

To stay on topic, I finally found my frost mage a raid! I'm still on trial, but I did pretty good on Shannox and Beth. Rhyo I died on, but I wasn't the only one at least. =x So I expect that I will probably be added to the roster.
