Hey guys doesn´t the game ever get kinda boring when you are still doing the same raids? I started playing wow at the end of WOTLK but I´m tempted to try vanilla. What makes it so much more fun from other expansion. I don´t take ´´its not shit´´ as response
as mental as this is
isn't this actual a way to fight it? what if we straight up make a vietnam like guild and our only purpose is to find chinese players on this game and wipe them over and over until they quit
we have to do justice for nost
>almost zero overheal
>some nigga beats me with 100 ehps
how do they do it
if you've ever been to fire emblem general before they had to stop, and probably other generals, you'll quickly find that this erp shit spills over into the thread. get it the fuck out entirely. there's no reason it should be anywhere in this general.
As someone who has spent hours killing chinks in Redridge, Wetlands, Duskwood and so forth, I can tell you that they just keep coming.
For some reason they don't stop playing, they just keep spawning. They spawn near you, keyboard turn, target you. Some don't move, some backpaddle, some run only to return.
And they just keep on coming. And coming... And coming...
It hard to keep them contained and its also hard to keep the inner dindu contained so you only kill chinks.
Kind-of. My guild has been farming BWL since release along with MC, ZG, Ony etc and it's kind of getting stale. We're selling 80% of the loot at this point and our guild bank has over 300k gold its crazy.
What guild? Ally side? Kind of interested if I could join to get free loot or just buy things at a reasonable price. I asked NOPE about bonereavers edge and they said something like 800g-1k, around that. ridicilous
The demand for bonereavers is through the roof, that is a fair price if you dont mind losing an MC id for that week if it doesn't decide to drop. Its BIS for 2h Fury as a human for a very long time because of the proc, which is broken on this server.
Vanilla WoW was rushed out and it wasn't a complete game. The tricky part there is that it wasn't "complete" on some interesting spots. Incomplete itemization or specs did harm the variety of the game, but it wasn't impossible to play it.
Lack of LFG or LFR or server specific battle grounds, before the BG groups were formed made the social aspect much more important.
Reputation mattered a lot, you would know who is the richest person around, who is a griefer, PvP or PvE orientated person.
40 man raiding is DRASTICALLY different from 25 man raids in regards to raid leading and the fact that if one person fucks up, everyone can die, but it's a lot harder to micromanage people as raid leader. Basically everyone needed to be on their toes and half of the time "I'll just follow what others do" won't cut it.
For me the flare of Vanilla is that where it lacked, community was allowed to step in and the game was good because of that. Because of the people you raided with, did battleground. Because of the same enemy you would see in BGs as if you're each others arch nemesis.
Also on top of that content up to level 60 was fun. Having a WPvP brawl at level 25+ was actually fun and since the leveling was tougher it mattered more. One of my dearest memories from Nost after three level 60s is one run in Uldaman on my main months ago.
All of this was streamlined and it lost its flare, imo. LFG made leveling guilds worthless as well as actually trying to interact with people outside of groups. Making world elites be normal mobs also did this. Rogues for example did feel this change quite a bit when you look the ratio of yellow to white damage comparing Vanilla to expansions after it.
What was made casual was person to person interaction and organization mostly. Which is why it's kinda funny that a bunch of self proclaimed neets and spergs lament over it.
>The demand for bonereavers is through the roof
>tfw we are on the verge of DEing our BREs
>tfw all Azuresong Mageblades we have came from when people pugged since zero dropped in guild runs.
>ganking will repel chinese
1. I've seen people 'ganking chinese' when they were literally just greykilling everyone
2. I have been target ganked and camped and still have not quit the game, you think someone dying once or twice to some random shitter would consider quitting?
Some people would quit, but way too few for this to work and out of those proportional amount would be non chinese
Will I be fucked if I join a guild as an OT with absolutely no raiding experience and only preraid bis? I'm afraid that I'll mess up and wipe the raid because I did something wrong, what is a OT's job in MC, ZG, Ony, BWL? And will I need a mic for that? I dread having to speak with people who I don't know
As an off tank you just need to out-threat the healers which should be easy.
Basically you stand in a place designated for you and tank some mob until the MT comes over to grab it and tank it while people kill it.
You have more room to move around, less mobs to take care off and you are working on your threat mostly against healer threat, not DPS.
People prefer you speak as any tank.
But most guilds have a desginated "main OT" whose basically as geared as the MT.
If your tank 3 or 4 in the raid you probably wont need too depending on the guild, but its preferred you do.
keep threat on on an add, pull them into position because most of them have some aoe that can fuck the raid. Some trash mobs want taunt rotations
Adds and threat resets on some of the bosses
more of the same I assume
You need at least headphones to listen to raid leader, tanks generally need to be the most vocal (HEAL ME I HAVE BOSS AGGRO, TAUNT RESISTED SOMEONE PICK THIS UP, etc) so you might want to suppress your autism slightly
I guess I might find a guild for me since in retail I was the OT in a guild and we didn't need to speak, the raid leader just said strats and shit before an encounter and then anything that needed to be said was said with raid warnings
maybe i'm just too casual
i have never done vanilla raids and im offtanking BWL right now
its a pretty easy job, but WHEN you fuck up, you fuck up harder than other roles.
i've had a few times where i kinda forgot strats and wiped the whole raid because of it. the raidleader got pretty mad at me on TS and 38 other people were listening to it. it's really depressing when you feel like the weak link in the raid.
>best at it
I sort of doubt you're the best player to grace this game, or even this server by a long shot.
Plus, I don't stutter-type with anyone, and looking at an "animated butt" is the same as looking at porn. Normal.
>waiting in line for the faggot priest quest
>russian infront of me fails it
Going to bed soon.
What time is Krah's mc? None of entitledfags could tell me.
So I have a problem. I'm 43 now, I've been leveling in STV for the past few days, and now I can't even see anyone who's not Chinese anymore. Literally zero normal people all around me, and the Chinese are especially prevalent on Alliance.
What the fuck happened? How did they invade this fast?
Any horde-fags at lvl 6 in durotar wanna level rn?
>tfw horde and barely see any chinese
that's what you get for playing the wowg memerace
i really want thunderfury
how would i go about getting it?
the money is no issue as i have been farming arcane crystals for weeks and i have 100 of those already and 800g cash.
i'm currently 3rd tank in my guild so the bindings are probably the hardest part for me.
should i leave my guild and become the maintank in a shit guild or should i wait for our current maintank to quit or something?
make a pug and reserve it, the ingots alone for the sulfuras alone costs you 6-8000 gold for a shit legendary, ishygd think you can get fragment for spending 1-2k gold
if your guild is not running dkp i doubt theres another way, tf is a status symbol and still somewhat rare so no sane tank will pass you for a few thousand gold that has no practical use for them atm
Dude, you're lucky if you even see the MT in your guild get any bindings ever, simply because it will give your guild an edge in future content, meaning easier progress and more gear to you.
The droprate on those bindings seems somewhat fucked on this server (most likely intentional if that's the case) and you'd probably go insane trying to lead your own guild for that purpose alone, let alone managing a fucking pug reserving the bindings every week.
How much do you think your guildmaster/officers should enforce morality in your guilds?
>Two of your guildies does an instance run to get enchant mats with three randoms
>one of the guildies kicks one of the randoms and replaces him with his buddy
>right after the two guildies get their enchant mats they leave
>then laugh about how pissed off one of the randoms is in gchat
What would you think would be the appropriate way to handle this?
Would you not care or would you take some sort of action?
this is simply not true.
during naxx you need at least 4 tanks with thunderfury otherwise you're just not going to clear naxx.
if you're a tank and you don't have at least 1 binding by now you're fucked basically.
17 or 18, which is really low. The bindings became available in September, and since then 100+ guilds have cleared MC every week, and out of these clears, only 17 guilds have had 2 separate bindings drop for them.
>What if the mats were bind of pickup?
Than demand a sum of gold equal to the valor of the materials
>And on what premise would the guild even be entitled to those items in the first place?
How about the premise that they were being fucking faggots?
Don't you want to punish them?
How shit does a dungeon run have to be before you bail?
I just left after our 5th wipe before the 2nd boss of WC, having seen that two members just decided to take ress sickness. Had hunter pulling, tank not paying attention to most things etc. and yet I still feel like the asshole.
>tfw ever since I got moonkin form the dindu allies have r fanned me as much
Truly the comfiest and most fun spec.
90% of them are playing from internet-cafe-like bot sweatshops, they basically have 20+ computers and everyone playing at the same time, and they're assigned to protection duty for each other. This is why you'll see some really weird sounding account ban appeals along the lines of "my friend is playing in the same room as me and also his brother why were we banned is this ok if my sister and mom play in the same computer also aunt and uncle are chicken kebab"
I doubt it would be too good
Mages, priests, paladins, druids and maybe some others are able to farm the DM:E plant packs
Druids, locks, hunters, not sure if anyone else is able to solo the last 3 bosses of Maraudon
I think there's some bug in ZG that mages are able to farm loads of gold with, might be wrong though
can't remember anything else, but I doubt ZF would be too great money, groups are plentiful and it's a very short and easy run
I feel like SM might be good money if you want to solo shit for people
>tfw I want to be like vurtne and iceblock deathcoils left and right
>but whenever I log in, there's 11k chinks online and it lags so bad that I get to see death coil, I get to press iceblock, then 1 second later I get deathcoil effect and 1 more second later iceblock actually goes off
this is suffering
i started as third tank and now am OT, pretty easy overall, depends on what your guilds DPS is like. It's generally pretty easy to tank raids but when your dps is through the roof you need to be ontop of your rotation 100% of the time. sometimes OT job is harder then MT job, you need to taunt wing buffets and have generally perfect taunts and be ready to taunt anything that changes target so said person dosent die.
We just need more manpower!
WE NEED YOU!
TO FIGHT THE COMMIE SCUM!
I'm so proud of myself, I actually fought a ganking druid and won, I feared him and death coiled him and applied dots and all that, that's probably the first person who attacked me who didn't have the goddamn pvp trinket.
Good evening, anons~
Daily reminder to make -full- use of your healrs... that's what we're for!
Goes in with cat form, do some damage, after he's taken some damage goes out of form to heal and interrupt anything that is about to be cast with feral charge and continue on the cycle until the warlock is dead. the druid will be able to outsustain the warlock with innervate and heals
I doubt the Warlock is going to just stand there and try ans cast at you. He has a lot of tools to get you off him and to eat you alive. If you stop to heal, he'll fear you.
There's only like one or two good combinations for fem orc/troll, and unless you like corpses or furries, that's it.
Female night elves are a monstrosity and never should have been created. They are the most toxic players in WoW besides those who play female humans, and are arrogant and stuck-up brats.
They are often toxic because the "human being" controlling them is some angry radical man-hating feminist who is obsessed with female social power and chooses to play a race, who in lore is dominated by females in most positions of high rank, and who use an Amazon-modeled female warrior military group.
Through their gorilla-handed avatar, these players spit foul remarks because they are so angry that the world isn't already some femnazi utopia so they channel their anger on undeserving, innocent, and kindhearted individuals like myself.
IMHO female night elves should be made unplayable, yes, UNPLAYABLE, and all players with a female night elf on their Nostalrius account should be instantly and permanently banned from the game.
That's why the druid roots the warlock and moves out of range to heal. Should also have the pvp trinket to counter the warlocks fear. can also try bait out a fear and interrupt him
Why do you have to be so rude? the posts aren't affecting you are they?
Join the chat room I suppose. That's your best bet.
So the Warlock is standing there trying to do.. what? The druid can't stunlock like a Rogue, the Warlock is going to have the chance to use instants.
Yes, the warlock does have the chance to use instants, but if the druid roots the warlock down and retreats a bit so he can heal up and continue to damage the warlock, what can the warlock do? Not to mention the possibility of engi stuff like shadow reflector or grenades for more interruption/cc/damage/whatever
But you are quite lewd, one of the lewdest things to grace this thread in a while. I appreciate it.
>Hunters and warriors don't have fear on their trinkets, and I guess hunters have nothing at all to deal with it. So go gank some hunters.
Jesus Christ I just tried to kill a same level hunter, and I almost died, he had a goddamn raptor pet that fucked me up and was immune to fear. I barely escaped.
>if the druid roots the warlock down and retreats a bit
Roots don't stun, while the druid is trying to get out of range the Warlock has a chance to get casts off. Plus Death Coil is instant as well, and the Warlock probably has a pet.
Also the engie gadgets go both ways. The Warlock could have them too. Seriously, you're ignoring the entirety of the Warlock's kit. They'd fucking wreck you if they weren't bad.
Take a look at this fag, anyone know his main char? "he is in dmg control"
Fighting hunters as a caster is a bit tricky since they have viper sting, if you don't have a way to kill him quick or remove it then you're most likely fucked since you'll go oom right away.
Most locks I see use their death coil pretty quickly so it would probably be in cd by the time the druid would want to retreat to heal. He can stun you for a short moment as well, giving him more time to escape, if you fear him then he trinkets if he hasn't yet. Not sure if there's anything that a warlock pet could do other than succubus seduce, I never see anyone use felhunter
It's that fat greasy fuck Glacies
looks like the admins dont like the word NIGGER being used :^)
I just want a friend and people tell me to join DC and the person who told me to add him in the last thread, we didn't come online at the same time. Even at school I just sit in the library and use my phone during lunch. When I ask people how do I make friends they think it's a joke.
>they whisper me a blank space
whats the point anymore? everybody is chinese, honestly, we might aswell be playing a singleplayer game
every person i try to interact with cant talk back, new server when
would anyone be interested in trading a high level mage for my 58 Warlock.

You're thinking of Convulsion
>im thinking on salty dogs
>im thinking on
That sounds extremely painful
there's almost no reason to spec ele pre 40 because most of your damage will be melee/totems anyway.
post 40 is better but you still need to drink after every second kill, and thats if you have decent gear
my advice is to just level as enh and go resto at 60 like everyone else
>screenshot got bumped to the beginning of the folder because of the new year
haha whoops haha lol
>people who advertise their twitch channel on general chat and trade constantly

>it's just them leveling or gold farming
>they start "pvping"
>it's just them ganking people fighting mobs while on low health
I'm seriously starting to consider getting into the beta and just doing karazhan until it's released.
>oh look, the server died AGAIN
Was pretty happy with the population but not if it's going to die every fucking hour. I don't care how many people you have I'm fucking struggling to level due to being thrown off 10 times a day.
Going back to Kronos. Make your ded server memes all you want but at least it fucking works
go fire till 40, then go aoe frost spec with ice barrier
you get your rank ups of fireball 2 levels earlier than frostbolt early on and it sucks ass, take it from someone who went frost the whole way
alliance, I'm quite sure. not only is there more chinese alliance guilds, but I swear to god I notice more alliance side and I have 2 horde 60s and 2 alliance 60s. on top of it all, most of the chinese mages I see in dire maul doing dm east farming are alliance.
Do they speak English though? I mean I'm EE too but I can't stand talking in my native language in MMOs, it just sounds so retarded and divides the community.
It's really bad. It's like everyone is the other faction including my own faction. And the moronic "U RACIST BRO" comments from the devs... I don't even know what to say to that.
Alliance definitely. If you want to fight Chinamen you must go Horde.
Although there's been a massive amount of them on Horde lately too, they're still leveling and they're building their communities and mafias really fast.
>"U RACIST BRO" comments from the devs
Wonder how quickly that'll be retracted when the server makes a heavy shift in Chinese population, that Nost becomes an online economy rather than a game.
I really think the Chinese surge could kill Nost. I have no problems with those that play, but the ones who spend 17 hours a day herbing and farming DM for cash to sell are killing it.
>Activision-Blizzard say they aim to further expand esports after their purchase of MLG
it's over... retail is finished..
In a small section of the garden a tiny weed spoke to the blooms that grew there. 'Why,' he asked, 'does the gardener seek to kill me? Do I not have a right to life? Are my leaves not green, as yours are? Is it too much to ask that I be allowed to grow and see the sun?' The blooms pondered on this, and decided to ask the gardener to spare the weed. He did so.
Day by day the weed grew, stronger and stronger, taller and taller, its leaves covering the other plants, its roots spreading. One by one the flowers died, until only a rose was left. It gazed up at the enormous weed and asked: 'Why do you seek to kill me? Do I not have a right to life? Are my leaves not green, as yours? Is it too much to ask that I be allowed to grow and see the sun?'
'Yes, it is too much to ask,' said the weed.
<Damage Control> Doritonun just got btfo
- zugshock :^)
If you're herb you can go to SoS and reap tons of fadeleaf/blindweed. Made like 30g off those at 37-39. There's always elemental fire farming too, but good luck with the competition.
Gold income rises a lot at 40+ too so don't worry, at 40-41 alone I made 15g just questing.
>greater sagefish down the STV river then stonescale eels/wreckage on the coast
It's pretty legit gold, only thing is I levelled fishing at 60 so idk if you get ganked to fuck by xiaoping and friends or not these days as a lowbie fisher

>mfw only 30 signs for the raid in 12 hours
I played months and months ago with some of you and made a few buddies, but mostly ignored guild chat as it was constant live action shitposting.
Bored and kind of want to play again. Did you guys ever make a real raiding guild? Did a horde guild ever end up happening, or are you all still alliance?
I browsed through the thread quickly but it's hard to tell what's real. I could also just be retarded.
I'm so embarrassed, I fell right asleep between posts! But I feel a bit refreshed now, gonna see if I can finally knock out some more quests!
ign is Evalsleah, in case anyone wanted to join me or just chat while I quest.
Are we talking about DC
Why would we give up after not completely filling out on our first ever raid, especially when we have so many people lined up to hit 60 or get their preraid
my off hand is only disgracuruu
I love how the alliance rogue killing everyone including NPCs in Zoram's didn't get banned or any GM intervention yet despite doing it the whole day, and when someone from horde does it, they teleport him away in 5 minutes.
>mfw i see yuroshits speaking their native language in a public channel or /s
I-it's not like I want into <Damage Control> or anything, b-baka!
hey im leveling a warrior and want to into PVP endgame, so im leveling min/eng as well as first aid on the side, and im wondering how useful that would be versus herb/alch for potions and such?
if you record the following with vocaroo and post a link along with a picture of the bottom of your feet (including timestamp) into the general i'll invite you
"I'm a dirty little slut who likes big druid bear dick in my cute little gnome holes."
Alliance do that regularly in every questing hub there is, do Horde 60s really get admin'd out of it regularly? The most I've done is killing gnomes in Redridge for at maximum an hour and nothing seemed to come of it
>Undead have all of Tirisfal and Silverpine to themselves
>So fucking many of them swarming Durotar and the Barrens
Undead are a plague. As a troll priest healer, I am openly racist towards any undead. I'll purposefully let them die in secret by spouting some bullshit, unless they're the tank (they never are, they're always a fucking rogue or mage) in which case the party takes priority over their shit rotting body.
They are also ALWAYS Chinese, some little kid who spams in all caps, or some asshole who is whispering me throughout the dungeon about how he's the top of the DPS charts.
dont listen to the other posts, i am able to kill mobs in just a few spells spamming my shocks and bolts. i dont have to drink after every mob either. and on top of that you wont have to kill yourself because you are mindlessly hitting mobs with a melee waiting for them to die.
was like that without the chinese. what's different about the chinese is that a lot more of them are prone to grinding so good grinding spots are even more scarce. they have an autism racial irl.
You can at least pair up with non chinks.
Chinks are ALWAYS in a group, and if you ask them to invite you or disband so you can invite, they just stand there like fucking retards.
The most communication I've had with a Chinese was him running up to me and going "^_^".

Post this in every Chinaman thread on the official forum.
There's only one possible reason and that's getting paid by the Chinese gold sellers.
Which would of course mirror the corruption related to "multiculturalism" in real life, where people are accused of racism for just wanting to live their normal life to cover up for the elites raking in billions from their suffering.
Funny how ideology works isn't it.
Chinks are mostly Alliance, they have Horde alts they're selling though.
I just saw two of them, lvl60 rank12, ganking everyone in Badlands for example, this is a rare sight on Horde, but there they were, typical Chink names too.
>this is a rare sight on horde
Every day with this
You burst my sides every single day with your reverse-dindu psychology
So my n8 elf priest just hit 34 and the spells are equite expensive. Somebody mentioned desolace to farm - where exactly in desolace? I don't mind grinding for a bit
It's around here in Desolace. Just kill every animal, pick up all loot and skin them. Get to a vendor, empty bags and repeat.
I help you out with some gold if you post your IGN.
Thanks for the map my german fellow and thanks for the offer but I'd prefer to farm it myself.
Feels way more rewarding. But appreciated anyway
>Booty Bay boat broken
Anyone want to bet what the next broken thing will be after the restart?
Hoping for an accidental permaban of all Chinese Clients.
its aright i had the 2 days rested exp and these flame golems gave me the levels. 10% away from 55 but i dont know what to do after i hit this wall. Even with the rested exp this was a doozer.
Yeah if you haven't done AV yet then it's extremely good xp, loads of easy quests that give 10k xp. Also ice barbed spear from the korrak quest, will last you until 60
EPL gives lots of xp as well, a lot of quests and a lot of mobs to kill

I used to like this game and now I only enjoy raiding. Can Corecraft come out already?
>trying to leave IF
Whether I should stay resto for dungeons or go balance
I'm level 40 and have 5 days and some few hours. I-is this the druid experience?
muh 10% increase healing muh 20% increase in rejuv healing
Go Balance. Balance can handle healing semi-decently, as with every caster spec. Soloing is far more important than dungeons for the most part, until 60, so going Balance is a much better option.
I would personally have gone Feral for reduced downtime and less reliance on casts, but that's your decision.
It's pretty much too late at this point for Feral without a radical gear swap. You can still go Balance and heal fairly well as it is. It's not like it is on retail where there's a big difference between casters and healers.
>Doing the warrior quest in Arathi Highlands with the elementals
>There's a higher level friendly farming them
>Ask him if he could give up the charms for me
>Whispers blank space
>Get killed by horde moments later and he doesn't even try to help
Just keep in mind at 60 you'll want to be Resto for healing. Balance and Feral will be almost universally unwanted, and Resto is kind of bad for 5 mans because it doesn't have a normal res.
