I can't do the raid til 1/2am thing anymore


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!

Reviving this. Just hit 85 with my mage finally lol. I'm actually enjoying Arcane again. It still is really easy, but at least it requires some thought now instead of 11112.

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.
