I just decided that our guild is short on tanks and healers so I'm gonna put away my leet dps spec/gear for awhile and go Tank/Resto dual spec. That'll give some of our guildies a chance to catch me on the dps meters :P

Well, good night tonight.

Did 10 man ToC right before the raid and got lots of fun feral gear, also downed the new boss.

Did 25 man ToC and downed the new boss in that.

Proceeded to go to Ulduar to attempt 25 man Flame Lev with 4 towers. 3 shot that encounter for the first time ever.

Then I went to the 5 man ToC and geared up my dk with like 5 new pieces.

I got new boots though!

Edit: Totally forgot to mention this.

So we have this aussie feral druid in my guild who is cool ****. He asked if anyone had the 20 arp cut at all and I said I could get it for him. So I went and bought the cut and then proceeded to cut him 6 arp gems.

Guess how much arp he has? 834 Armor Pen. It's sick as ****. He's almost at full 100% armor pen.

That hat is fugly :) Only time I used to show it was when I was in CoS and my stupid human form made me bald :)

Gz Arex, busy night I see :) Our guild in 25 man are the slowest to loot in the world so we can't do so much in a night! So frustrating.

So I've probably asked this before already but how far do you need to go to reliably tank T8/9 content? I know my tank gear is getting better but the sheer quantity of 200s that I still have makes me nervous about it. I'd like to be able to confidently tell my raid leaders that I can tank if one doesn't show and not have it **** up the raid because we didn't have another willing volunteer.

Armory has tank gear atm.

Well, I switched my bear to full tank spec and went out into the world to tank some heroics. Did fine, had a few different dps in and out and ended in H VH with 4 plate wearers and me.

Long story short, the warrior was riding my tail in threat the whole time and at one point had aggro on the boss. Which gave me the idea for Nith's Rule #2 for tanking - If a plate wearing class pulls a mob, he gets to tank it cause my mom taught me to share.

Norellicus, I'd say you're ok for T7-T7.5, maybe first few bosses in T8. Your stam is good, but you're low on agility. You're about 4% low on dodge imo before getting any further in T8 and that low agility will mean low crit so low uptime on savage Defense.

Replacing the Polar Vest should be #1 priority, then the shoulders and bracers.

Yeah, those glare at me every time I look at them. Can't get upgrades to save my life though, never seem to make it further than spider wing in naxx with shout groups and the sheer badge cost of a chest token is just ughhhhh.

Just to check, are you basing the dodge stuff off my armory tooltips or running it through rawr/feralbynight? Cause in bear I think I have like 36% dodge. I dunno my crit. I know it's not a fix-all but I've got that darkmoon card coming soon too, so that'll at least give spurt boosts to my agility.

So are there rough values I should be looking at to be solid? You said health was good, dodge is 4% low, so if you were calculating in bear form I need to get to at least 40%...crit needs to be what, like 25%?

I judged your dodge by your armory, expecting you to take the two talents that combine for 10% dodge in bear form, which would put you at 36%. I like to stay at 40% as a minimum for tanking T8 and higher raids.

You can see where my stats are in the posts above.

HP and dodge are the priority, then expertise, then hit imo. The best way to get dodge though is agility, which will increase your crit to help keep SD up.

You can get the T8.5 chest with badges just from running heroics for a week, and the heroic daily for 2 weeks will get you the lowest tier 9 shoulder. And I believe Trial of the Champion has a decent bracer on heroic. If armory was working, I could give you some more suggestions for upgrades.

Warriors and their lack of proper threat reduction is annoying the **** out of me, especially when paired with an Arms Warrior. Those guys just love Bladestorm, especially as an opening move after building up rage through Charge. Swipe can only do so much.

The most frustrating part is that you can't just tell them to watch their threat, because they'll counter it by telling you to increase your TPS.

Seriously hate some people.

I top tps meters all the time.

I'm pretty god **** amazing because of it too.

On a side note!

Ran 10 man os zerg, with 5 alts! After a few fails people finally realized perhaps, mayhaps... We should be on our mains.

One attempt later with our mains the zerg was down, and to our wonderful great surprise...

A black drake was on the corpse!

I got my priest frm level 52 to level 60 today. And spend 700g on keeping my profs up-to-par.

Which means I get a lot of time with the druid tomorrow for dailies, because now I need flying. I don't think I've ever been so excited to play a different class.

I really just wanna be level 80.

I was hoping to avoid mindlessly grinding heroics but at this point I no longer have a choice, guild stopped running 10s on the weekend and I can only come sparingly to the 25s during the week...heroics here I come!

And bracers drop in reg ToC, I didn't notice until now. Unfortunately it seems getting anything in particular to drop there is impossible (I keep trying to run it for the Banner of Victory, and now I guess I'll have to do it yet still for the bracers!) :F

Its not so much that I hate the hunter, it's because we always seem to be a few short for 25 runs and PuGs always steal my gear. If it was someone from the guild Id be less crushed

But it's a weapon. It's basically the one slot that's itemized so outrageously well that an upgrade should be drastically noticeable, even to the players who have absolutely zero skill (particularly feral with their FAP). Hunters don't use weapons for this purpose and I really feel that unless it's a bow or gun, it should be considered a level between main spec and off spec for them. I only roll for a weapon on my hunter when I'm sure no one else wants it.

Lupine Longstaff. I'll say this about the staff, for a marks hunter it's actually really good. Arp = aimed shot love.

Far from "Bored Druid" but I thought I would post my <3 for my Druids here. Loving the versatility and the different roles we can have, tho I am yet to try out Resto.
Balance is my fave spec, but I seem to have a target painted on me in that spec so I am sticking to Feral for a bit longer, tho Balance will be my main spec at 80. I am trying to get the G together for my artisan riding before I dual spec my ally druid. It isn't hard really considering how much G you make out in Northrend and with herbalism and mining as my profs. My Horde Druid already has Artisan flight, cold weather flight and dual spec.

I just noticed Rarebeast is on Jubei'Thos as well, if you see Aeonami, how's about a wave and not a wooping ;) at least till I am 80 as well pls.

Alliance scum!! You are pretty safe from me :) I very rarely try to kill anybody other than people why try and kill me first. Partly because I am bad at PvP :)

I do love getting my low-level alt ganked by a higher level then logging over and killing them 3-4 times on my main, then logging back on my alt and waving at them :) It's pretty easy to tell it's me cause all my alts names are Rare...... (got ..bëast, ..bull, ..one, ..ss, ..death, ..dude, ..lord, ..bones, ..lock, ..bob)

Our guild just lost our top dps to Aion. So my wife is scouring our friends lists looking for DPS that can do 3-4k for tonight's Ulduar run. For some reason good DPS are hard to find on our server... *shrugs*

We've lost our top 3 DPS in the last 2 months, feels like we're going backwards sometimes. On the plus side the new kitty in the guild looks like he's going to get a shot at some decent upgrades.

According to wowprogress, my guild was in the top 50 in the world to clear 10 man ToC.

Also according to wowprogress that means my guild is tied for world first with a ton of other guilds.

I'd like to thank the academy, zam networks, booze, the zam community, and special thanks to people like Horse, Galen, Isyris, Aethien (even though he doesnt have a druid), Quor, Mazra and of course you. *sniff* you guys made me the way I am *sniff*

But in all honesty I think the world first thing is pretty **** hilarious, cause we're not what you really call.... World First Material TM

We did regular 25 last night. Had one person die on the 1st boss while dc'd (10-15 of us got DC'd on the pull Smiley: rolleyes). Nobody died on the 2nd & 4th boss and we only lost 3 on the crazy PvP battle. Then we wiped twice on Anub due to people not having read the fight Smiley: mad Little things like tanking the adds on ice so they don't burrow and com back at full health! Funny how you hit the enrage time when you have to basically kill each add 2-3 times. Once we got it sorted we beat the timer by 2 mins or so.

What debuff tracker you all use currently? I've been using DoTimer with decent success, but it doesn't track other peoples' applications of relevant/overwriting debuffs (so if another feral or arms war is in the raid I can't see if Trauma/Mangle is up reliably) and I can't get it to track my Idol proc (I try to toss a Mangle in every rotation to make sure it stays up but I'd like to be able to track the buff to know WHEN I need to Mangle rather than doing it needlessly). I also don't like that I have to put SR on a separate bargroup rather than just binding it to the same box tracking the debuffs on target.

Plus I'd like something more flexible for alts, DoTimer doesn't really work for tracking healer-type abilities well (or I'm just not seeing how to configure it to do so)...it tends to leave bars up on my screen for every character I cast a spell on O.o;

Norel, I've been using Classtimers. I still get the issue where it doesn't track trauma, but it does track other druid's mangles. The only downside is it also tracks other druid's rips and rakes, which makes it harder to track your own. I haven't really messed with it to see if I can change that though. It's great for tracking buffs and debuffs because it gives you a separate set of bars for player, target and focus that you can set up anywhere. It's also very good for tracking drood healing HoTs.

Fordragon Blades dropped for our ToC10 group last night too. Our Deathtard MT got it lol. Our Warrior OT got the Dodge trinket with the armor proc that I can't remember the name of.

I got off work late and missed it all, but came in to dps on the first boss in ToC10 Heroic. We got to the wyrms a few times, but yeah...definitely hardmode. Didn't help it was after midnight and people were getting tired. After a few wipes we called it, but I'm definitely looking forward to clearing 10 regular every week to gear for 10 heroic.

As far as addons go, Feral by Night is the best I have seen by far. It is an updated version of facemauler by Nightcrowler from ElitistJerks who is the guy who has developed the Feral DPS simulator over there. It will track others mangle & trauma as well as your trinket procs, ooc procs, cooldowns etc. I follow it's suggested ability add-on usually (assuming the fight conditions suit) and have been doing pretty well. I hit 8.3k DPS on twins the other night and was only just beaten by our other feral on 8.4k


We had 10 attempts on heroic TotC last night but each time we had about 5 people DC or lag for the first 30 secs of the fight. This resulted in the worms turning up with the 1st boss still on about 5% health and chaos ensuing. In the end we gave up and will try again on another day. There are a number of people posting about similar problems on the technical support forums with the standard Blizzard response of deleting all your addons. We tried that, turning all graphics down, turning sound off etc etc etc. Sometimes it would seem to work, then on the next attempt it would be crap again /sigh
