    The "let's talk about anything other than gems" thread

    Because even Goblins need a break .

    @Sterling/Sinshroud - the thread title is pretty useless, but I figured since it's the off topic forum, I'd try and slide one through. Go ahead and change it if you like.

    Discussion starters

    Best /facepalm moment in WoW?

    Favourite non gold related WoW blog?

    The thing you just keep putting off?

    Personal feelings about "gearscore" (just kidding...)


    Background: I need some creative inspiration, but there doesn't seem to be much going on outside of epic gems and 75s vendor cuts right now, someone please give me something to talk about!

    Best /facepalm moment in WoW?
    Tough one, actually, because there seem to be so many. Best personal one was probably when I tanked the second half of 5 man ToC with my lance still equipped instead of my weapon. No wipes, though. Other than that, the best one that come to mind was the guy that sent me a mail begging for gold. I sent him back a very sarcastic reply explaining that I didn't have the gold, that the monsters did, and that they would give it to him quite easily. His response: What monsters? /facepalm.

    There a number of Feral Druid blog I check out regularly. I think my favourite would be The Fluid Druid, because of the work that he puts into doing all the math that I don't want to bother doing.

    The thing you just keep putting off?
    I've been trying to work on a comprehensive Glyph Guide for about a week now, but I also haven;t done much work on it in about a week...

    I'm not gonna touch gearscore, not even with an argent tournament lance.

    @Kathroman - Only a dk/druid could pull that off, I quickly notice as a warrior when I can't shield slam.

    What I am putting off is starting my own blog. I have the site and I think somethings just do not get brought up or touched upon when certain debates come up. Plus it would be good for my writing skills which absolutely suck.

    Facepalm moment - A beggar in SW was being particularily persistent so I opened a trade window and dropped 10,000g into the box and then dandered off to have a shower. While I was getting all soapy my girlfriend entered the house, saw the half finished trade and clicked accept... Her excuse was "I thought he was GIVING you 10,000g!" ah well, stuff happens.

    Favourite non-gold blog - http://blog.weflyspitfires.com I like the tone, the presentation, the material. Plus he's in Scotland, just a short hop over the puddle in case I ever need to poke him.

    What I've been putting off - Everything other than making gold in WoW.

    That brought back some memories for me, Aeg. Thanks. I do remember this one nexus run I was on while I was leveling to 80. I was tanking and we had just finished that "yo-yo" boss (name escapes me). Someone accidentally pulled an extra pat on the ramp down to the next area. We had a Ret Pally who was top dps by a mile - he died and the fight started getting dicey. The healer's mana was starting to get low so I popped a Battle Rez on the Pally, shifted back into Bear Form ASAP and continued tanking. No wipe, but one of the 2 of them was pretty flustered afterward. My response: Hey, it worked...

    Yeah the weirdest part about that ToC for me was that nobody else seemed to notice or just didn't say anything about it. It felt like my threat was really off, kept having to taunt more than usual, so I checked to see if my weapon was damaged or something and that was when I noticed. Some sort of DBM alert or something would have been helpful.

    Oh god. So, I'd never raided before; I was a relatively new 70 Belf Mage who knew what raiding was but didn't know how it worked. It was Monday night and some people wanted to clear the back half of Karazahn before reset and were desperately spamming General in Hellfire looking for warm bodies. I explained to the raid leader that I was a complete noob but would come if they were desperate.

    He was actually very nice, especially considering the server was mostly mean-spirited elitists. He explained how to download and set up vent and right as I connected to the vent I heard him explaining to the raid how they were going to handle the big pre-Curator robot guards. The ones that give you a debuff and cause you to explode, dealing damage to those around you. "If you get the debuff just get out of the group. You HAVE to get out of the group."

    I marked this down in my mind because I was desperate not to screw up. All the while I was watching my debuff just waiting for this inevitability to come. Finally, there was the debuff. I was going to do it right! I was going to be a good raider! I was going to follow directions!

    Right Click. Leave Group. Just like he said, I got out of the group.

    /facepalm

    He invited me back and a lot of people raged that the complete tard mage got T4 gloves. :3

    There's a bed in the other room. It's 10:40 AM. I should probably go to sleep . . .

    Faid - its funny that blog rhida.ch is one blog I always read even though I don't do Pallys - I skip the techincal posts about specs and stuff like that but otherwise he is a very good read.

    I love it. I knew there was something to love about South Africa other than the great accent!

    Although, sneakers aside, the article didn't really paint a pretty picture there Sinshroud...
