Tried to do some random instances on my lowbie Hunter on Argent Dawn-EU.
First try, Deadmines.
Everything up and down, but not too bad.
Warlock dies and doesn’t respond for some minutes, gets kicked.
Replacement Rogue comes in.
No one pays attention to patrols, it still works.
Just as we want to go down to the Smelting area, Tank needs a Relog.
Paladin Healer and Rogue proceed to run into mobs and die.
Rogue can’t find entrance, waits for res.
Paladin Healer can’t see his corpse.
15 mins pass (where I surf the web) and no Tank in sight.
This is where I leave.
Second try, Deadmines.
(Other) Hunter is semi-afk while having lunch, has growl on, spams chat then goes offline.
Rogue needs on Cloth SpellPower-Gloves, wins and equips them. (He has two Heirloom weapons, shouldn’t be THAT much of a noob.)
Shaman is infuriated, stops healing until he gets the gloves.
Tank isn’t bothered and continues to pull.
This is where I leave.
Running my daily randoms whenever time permits, DPS/Tank/Healer at 80 and Mage at 79 for Triumph and XP.
So far still happy with all the randoms, apart from a weird tank every now and then or DPS where I do more DPS on my Rogue than the 2 others, it’s fine.
When I installed RankWatch, first out of curiosity how much hits I would get, I thought people might be pissed, until now one person didn’t respond and I’ve already got like 10 “Thank You”, because they seemed to have misplaced stuff on their bars, dinged 80 recently and forgot to train or were lost in dualspec Nice addon.
Over and out.
Tried out the Random Heroics tonight, very impressed. Lucky with groups, ok. But I’m so glad you can keep your cross-server group and just go on and on and on.
Didn’t really count my Emblems, but I think it’s been 7 Frost and about 40 Triumph for my Shammy:
- Razorscale, Weekly Raid
- ToC 10
- “Daily” Heroic
- Countless random heroics
This “disenchant” feature could have been ace.
Instead it’s bringing stupdity up to the next level.
I’m not talking about the first boss, where only our disenchanter greeded and got the Abyss Crystal. As he’s from another server, I’m not sure we could have rolled and traded it then.
I’m also not talking about the second boss, where I still didn’t get it and passed. The other 4 all chose “Disenchant” and one randomly got the Crystal – fine.
No, I’m talking about the next boss, where 4 people chose “Disenchant” and our tank druid wanted to “Need” the cloth belt, as it was a clear upgrade for his healing set. But no, he could not click “Need”. We don’t know if it’s because he wears leather, because he joined as Tank in the LFG tool, why we couldn’t change “Need before Greed” to “Group Loot” or why the hell this can happen that some upgrade is automatically sharded…
