    On a fresh 90 best bet would be timeless isle, if you cant get exactly what you are after a little visit to the JP gear vendor will bring you in line for lfr current content. Shadow-pan Assault would be the only faction worth doing, and thats through LFR or raids anyway. Dont spend VP on upgrades to timeless gear though, spend it on drops through raids.

    Oh, maybe worth dailies for a bit to get your cloud serpent through The Order of the Cloud Serpent, if your not exalted with them you cant ride it even if you have it on another toon. Perhaps The Anglers too simply for the Water Striders, a very handy mount that can walk on water. Also cooking dailys/farming if you like the idea of farming your own stuff...

    It only took me about 5 days to get the cloud serpent on a second toon with the account bonus, I'm still working on the anglers, dont have the bonus.

    No.

    LFR is at its worst because everyone who carried that fucking filthy cess pit of hatred and drop kick players, now runs flex. They get better loot, don't have to carry anyone and it feels amazing.

    I really want a blizzard theme park- call it blizzvegas

    Have summoning stones near attractions and rides as meeting points, like going inside a battlecruiser, or scholomance or ulduar etc

    I would sell everything I own to visit Strat and Scholo for real, that's a sick idea

    Ahh the infamous WoW player base. :weirdo: Just started again after a hiatus and rolled a Panda WW.

    Did a BRD LFG last night with a bunch of douches in a guild (Sha of Awesome(I know right)) from my old server Khaz'Goroth. They jumped down at the start to kill the boss, so I followed suit, then the priest didn't and life gripped them all back up except me.

    Proceeded to run the instance leaving me stuck there. Was fine while I still gained XP but eventually got bored and jumped into the lava to rejoin up. More grief in form of nil heals for rest of instance. Stuck it out on an issue of principal, gave them a serve for being such tards at end.

    Just got to wonder why they'd even LFG unless it was to purposely grief. Not sure Ive missed this game at all....!

    The only way WoW can be enjoyed now is if you join a friendly, skilled guild and run all your dungeons and raids with them only. I even steer clear of lfr unless we can do a majority guild run. If I don't cap valor for the week I don't care anymore, not worth the headache of pugging a Hanson heroic or god forbid an lfr

    How is it possible to not cap valor?

    Between a Flex beer run and your normal/heroic progression thats more than enough vp.

    Main tank needs nothing from flex so an alt tank gets taken = need to do 2-3 randoms to vp cap.

    Reminds me of BRD in vanilla on my warrior. We spent the better part of 12 hours trying to complete the same run, all bar two of us kept changing, it was a nightmare but we were determined to finish it haha

    I remember a brd run like that, was awesome. After people had to leave we kept getting someone to go to SW/ IF to get more people.

    I've had a few re-directs when going to battle.net, instead of it taking me to us.battle.net it occasionly takes me to sea.battle.net. may have been the same problem there as well.

    Account got hacked on Saturday, they logged into all my chars and took a whole bunch of stuff. No malware or anything else on my pc - no idea how they got into my account :(

    Blizz restored within 6 hours of the ticket though, so all is back to normal!

    Authenticator back on :thumbup:

    Getting hacked used to be a good thing :) got your stuff back plus more. I remember we disbanded a guild by mistake and the items from the guild bank were meant to be emailed to the GM we had too much stuff and clogged the mail. Got all the stuff restored plus it showed up in the mail and everytime they ran a patch I got 150k gold in the mail for like a year :)

    5.4.1 out tonight, just some minor fixes.

    New RAF stuff is also included, but not actually live in the Blizz Store. "Soon", I guess.

    Have stopped playing now, most likely for the rest of MOP. Hopefully next expansion Blizzard really address a few things, if they don't then I don't see myself coming back at all.

    - Tone down ability/spell bloat.

    - Remove a heap of offensive and defensive cooldowns, way too many in the game, a Warlock for example has three ways to stop or delay damage on them. A Dk has three trinkets, etc. A druid can ice block if they play with a mage, shit like that is dumb.

    - All CC apart from stuns should be casted. Cast and forget passive CC like Ice Ward and Blood Fear shouldn't be in the game.

    - Pretty much all caster damage and healing should be casted.

    - In order to allow casters to cast said spells, melee mobility, immunities, and interrupts should be toned down.

    - Separate PVP and PVE on all abilities (I think Rift does this, or it might be GW2) to make for much better balancing.

    Among other things...

    It's a real shame, because the PVP in this game is like no other - in terms of how it feels to play overall and how smooth everything ties in together. The downfall is the constant seesaw balancing, Warriors were rubbish last patch, now they are gods, etc... Blizzard make amazing changes to the functionality side of things (region wide queuing, cross-realm arena "teams", conquest point catch ups, etc.) every expansion, but the gameplay side of it goes out the window - they add these new abilities to make classes feel epic, warlock gateway for example, stampede, but don't take into account the effects of these changes on their PVP.

    I can only imagine how good (and popular) the PVP in this game would be if they were to create an entirely new game based on WoW Arena/Rated Battlegrounds alone.
