Mogu’shan Vaults – LFR: Less Agony, More Ecstasy

Mogu’shan Vaults – LFR: Less Agony, More Ecstasy

The first half of Mogu’shan Vaults on Raid Finder went live today. For the last few days, I was fretting over not meeting the minimum iLevel of 460 to queue for LFR. I was still seven points shy of the mark, tanks kept rolling on and winning my DPS gear in random heroics, and Justice Points gear were basically useless. But a last-minute invite to do Sha of Anger in Kun-Lai summit sealed the deal for me. The Sha dropped…

Done With Raid Finder and Sundry Musings

Done With Raid Finder and Sundry Musings

I’m done with Dragon Soul via Raid Finder. At least on my Death Knight. My current gear is a mishmash of 397s and 384s which I would like to upgrade to all of the former. The only time you’ll see me there is to accompany friends, but after all I’ve been through in that Godforsaken place, I’d like to avoid DS – Looking for Raid, also known as Looking for Rez, as much as possible. My little guild and I…

No, I’m Not Rolling For You

No, I’m Not Rolling For You

To all the random Loot Whore Strangers in Raid Finder, You are my newest pet peeve. You never fail to disgust me each time you roll need on something you already have, win it and use it as a bargaining chip to get the loot you want should it drop on the next boss. Or, just before the boss pull, you tell me to roll for you on that weapon you really, really, really want. To think we don’t even…

Patch 4.3.2 and the Raid Finder Loot Issue

Patch 4.3.2 and the Raid Finder Loot Issue

Hallelujah! (From wow.joystiq.com) “Players can no longer win multiple copies of the same item on a single Raid Finder boss kill. For example, a player who chooses Need on two set piece tokens or two weapons and wins the first, will not be eligible for the second on that particular boss.” Thank you, thank you, thank you, Blizzard!

Blizzard Needs to Fix Raid Finder Loot System

Blizzard Needs to Fix Raid Finder Loot System

I did Dragon Soul – Raid Finder recently on another Death Knight (yes, I really love that class!) and won two helm tokens. Before I could offer the second token for a round of rolling, I got called every name in the book (“douchebag” being the most popular one). Now how does winning two helm tokens due to a flaw in Raid Finder’s loot system make me a douchebag? HOWEVER, I do understand why the other players were upset. The…

New Legs and Grats Bloodsoed!

New Legs and Grats Bloodsoed!

I am so happy. I won something today in Dragon Soul – Raid Finder. This time it’s a token for leg gear and I’m now wearing Necrotic Boneplate Greaves. I’m also very happy for Bloodsoed who finally got his Souldrinker! He’s turned into a real tanking beast and I’m so proud of him. It’s a great start to a new week in WoW. Here’s to more nice loot and a higher iLevel!

More Loot from Deathwing-LFR

More Loot from Deathwing-LFR

Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps is such a badass-looking sword. A week after winning Souldrinker, I won this baby PLUS Eye of Unmaking! Hmm, I’ve been very lucky so far on my LFR Deathwing loot rolls but terribly unlucky on the ones that drop from the other bosses. It’s the same case with my alliance hunter, whose recent loot included Kiril, Fury of Beasts and Vishanka, Jaws of the Earth. LFR loot is a welcome upgrade from my Tier 12…

New Gear Plus the Agony and the Ecstasy Of Raid Finder

New Gear Plus the Agony and the Ecstasy Of Raid Finder

First the good news: I got my first non-Looking for Raid tier gear today: Necrotic Boneplate Gauntlets plus Rockhide Bracers. Winning them made up for my ZERO wins in LFR this week. Neat! Now on to the wonders of LFR, where one can meet the most charming, well-mannered, cooperative, unselfish, unflappabe, cool, calm and collected people. I think I will let the image speak for itself.

Patch 4.3 Live This Week

Patch 4.3 Live This Week

Let me start this post by saying how happy I am to get my own Internet connection back after more than 36 hours of no service due to a major cable fault somewhere in the waters of Southeast Asia that impacted 100% of Destiny Cable’s subscribers. Plus I’m happy that Destiny acted quickly on my request to transfer my physical connection to my new address. I’m going through some transitions in real life so WoW had to take a back…
