Old thread: >>128248181
daily reminder: Chinks are -not- your friends.
Kronos is 1x, PvP, same shit like Nost.
The differences are
- Lower pop
- Cash points with which you can buy:
1. Chars put on auction leveled by other people
2. Name change
3. Some vanity crap
- Less lag
- Almost no chinks
- More slavs
- Ahead of Nost with releases on time.
I said it once, ill say it again. You don't really need more people then 80 for AV and 40 people once a week.
In theory yea you don't need more than 80 for AV.
You'll need 80 willing for multiple time zones to have a pop, which doesn't happen. You'll maybe get some during EU prime and that's it.
Just roll on nost PvE, there at least there's pop for round the clock BGs and you won't get any world pvp on Kronos anyways with the low pop.
Honestly, I am waiting for the twinstar team [guys behind Kronos] to slow down their TBC server to x1. That's how Kronos was created and their Cata and WotLK servers are x1 already.
God bless you
The Chinese only chose nost because it was the most populated
The same thing happens with Maplestory private servers
All the Malaysians/BRs/etc did RMT on Extalia, the most populated server with 2k players average
What happens if everyone /does/ move to Kronos?
>only Chinese remain on nost
>nobody is donating
>nobody is buying gold from the chinese
>no reason to keep server up
>Chinese need a new server
>Kronos is the next best one with English speakers who will buy gold
>the cycle begins anew
Nost is unlucky because of its popularity, but it just means that it's better than Kronos because the chinks decided to use it as their base of operations
Can i buy one of you a pizza or something for gold? I admit I am super lazy and have made quite poor decisions involving skill purchasing.
So far 1-40 is a lot like my real life, except even less successful and slightly more ganking.
I actually forget the amount, but yeah - it should be in one of the links in the op. I think.
I know it's equal to one point in master of deception for rogues, if that matters.
Is damage control on the pvp or pve server ? I had to gquit salty dogs because ded guild.
>go check my kronos characters I created when it launched
>have super ultra RARE names on them
>3/8 have been stolen
damage control is the alliance guild on pvp server. Horde side has salty dogs but I believe it's dead (I think a few people still there, who knows?)
Damage Control IS shit but not nearly as shit as this thread will tell you. It's a /nosg/ guild so it's obvious there are some cool people, some memers, some spergs, and some horrible people. That's how fucking life works.
Msg anyone for an invite, they are decent to new peeps for the most part if you aren't a douche.
daily reminder that this is what you get if you have Hong Kong IP address
You fucker.. why can't you just leave me alone???
I just want to play the game without being harassed. Also you are not even that good.. I had a lot of lag.
Try it again now and you will regret it.
trying to aoe frind the gnolls in wetlands but i cant
how much frost damage do i need?
or is this a git gud problem i have 26 frost damage at lvl 21
>tfw you are the only one of you class and role in the raid.
All the epics are belong to me.
>DM N tribute buffs
>Blasted lands buffs
>ZG buff + zanza potion
>darkmoon faire buff
>5 kinds of potions
>food and rumsey rum
alright time to raid!
The stupid thing is this isn't even slightly how raids were run back in vanilla.
When Nihilium got world first C'thun, they had the entire raid flask up and that was considered ultimate top guild minmaxing and was mostly unheard of at the time.
Not usually. Either they took forever because 10 people were fucking around and/or afk, or you just said fuck it and ran it with 30 people in the first place, so it took a bit longer.
This is right.
I think people forget how insane it is to get 40 people not only just on at the same time but to not fuck around/be drunk/be hitting on the resto druid that no one knows is fat yet/etc.
It's really fucking fun when it works and you have a cool group of people, but all of you are likely aware how rare that can be to find.
In addition to this, the player knowledge and skill level was way WAY lower than it is on Nostalrius and Retail.
I would wager a decent portion of the Nost raiding population has some raiding on retail, in fights considerably more difficult than any vanilla encounter.
NOW HERE COMES THE PART WHERE WE THROW OUR HEADS BACK IN LAUGHTER
what class can objectively beat a non special-ed mage in a fair 1v1 who knows how to polymorph?
>they pop frost reflector
>polymorph and wait it out &heal to full mana and hp
?????? why didnt he do that???
>not hardcasting a fire/arcane spell to bait earth shock
For the most part, but these fags say that they get it to work by stacking crusader judgements.
Either way, the TLDR is yes, ret isn't viable for level 60 pve. The thing from the forums above sounds neat but they also disbanded when the rets in the raid couldn't handle dispelling on lucifron.
Ret is technically "doable" but you need mostly bis gear and a guild willing to get you that gear and willing to piss off everyone else. It's also possible to get in as the nightfall dude .
Ret is great dps while leveling, falls off around 50ish, but you'll find most people don't realize it and won't let you dps. Prot is also just fine for tanking 5mans.
For pvp, of course, ret is great.
say that to my face and not online and see what happens f*cker
Any tips for dealing with rogue as a shaman? I know it's a "git gud" issue but would still love some advice. Leveling as enhance, getting close to 60. Will likely end up resto with some pts in ele when i hit 60, but too broke for respecs at the moment.
Nigga I'm like 80% pre-raid BiS
Too bad I've changed my mind about being resto. I'm going meme spec to casually pvp and grey kill
>hovering over the only BoE epic you have
nigga u forreal?
You talk to kemps like that and you're gonna get some of this!
Hey, you talk to my best friend Aylmoa like that and you're gonna have to deal with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
haha best friends <3 :P
anonymous board but we post our names and know each other
teamspeak! haha:P dont be shy xD
dont forget that they've been playing for months yet they're still in green/blue gear
one of them has been playing since launch and has never attended a single raid. talk about autism.
I've tried playing on this server on 3 different characters now.. I reach around lvl 16-20ish and give up everytime.
Doing westfall quests with a gazillion people around is the most painful thing I have ever done.
I used to level like a champ back in actual vanilla but I feel too old and bad at gaming to do it now. How do I get my leveling power back?
I'll admit, as an alliance player there are FAR more ally than horde. There are also FAR more chinese on ally than horde. Pretty much everywhere you quest will be rather hotly contested for quests and mobs, but it DOES get better after Westfall.
I do this too, have a rogue/warrior/paladin at 20ish. Then I take a long break, come back, and feel lost and have no friends.
I used to be able to power through as well but maybe I'm just too old and terrible now. I want to die.
Goddamnit, why are you guys all alliance?
Orcs are cool. WTF is wrong with being an orc?
Shamans and paladins are boring but shamans are LESS boring than paladins.
All of you nerds should have gone horde, if only to make the ERP fags whine. Really disappointed in all of you right now.
Is that the girl that friendzoned Clam?
stop trying to be funny. that's a lvl 44 item.
you fucking suck. no wonder raiding guilds don't want you.
HAHAHAHAHAH LOOK AT THESE BINDS HOLY FUCK HAHAH AHAHAHAHHAHA SO BAD
Are you saying that we should make a new guild?
A better guild?
A GUILD TO LOK'TAR O'GAR AND REMOVE CHINESE!?

In AV, when they send you to collect supplies from the mine, does the mine have to be under your control? Because I was able to collect 8/10 supplies then they suddenly stopped responding to right-clicking when mobs started spawning.

Hello, i asked a question on the wow private general but it seems it wasn't the right place to do so
Thinking on playing casually, i already have a lvl 30 dwarf warrior but i want to try out hunter.
Im gonna roll alliance.
My main concern is PvP and rogues in general, care you give me some insigth from experienced players? i want to play vanilla and this seems to be the best server, i don't want to play some stressfull minigames in wotlk again.
Just plain and simple rpgs even if i have to spam the same one button macro in pve or have to befriends a bunch of autistic tryhards.
Motivate me please.
Any class and race tips welcome
>doing shimmering flats quest as ally
>get invited to group with 3 chinese
>ninja loot every item
>keep doing it
>get all my quest items, they get nothing because i loot faster
>finish my quests, instantly leave
>peacefully grinding in beal'modan digsite
>things are going ok
>suddenly tons of fucking people swarm down and start grinding
>not a single one responds to english messages
>half of them have chinese in their names
Its literally like a plague of locusts descended on my grinding area. I really dont think i can keep playing until the chinese problem is fixed
If you haven't done alterac valley quests you should do them. There's a load of easy to do quests that give like 10k xp each.
Save BRD until later, it's a long dungeon, not the easiest one either. Unless you got 60's
Have you done sunken temple? Nice place. Do that if you haven't there's a few quests for that place.
Other than that, nothing else comes to mind really. Should just go and level somewhere like ungoro, maybe felwood.
Do the prequests for ST. All of them, even for the bottom part.
Finish Un goro if you haven't. Finish Felwood if you haven't. Do the 1st part of BRD, Fanny packs, talk to the dorf for Songstone quest. Talk to Marshal Windsor. Get the Shadowforge key, kill the fire elemental boss at the anvil for the quest.
Do the first Cauldron and kill quests in WPL. Be sure to finish all of the AVs except explosives expert. It's still bugged and gives negative rep.
Start doing the Fordring prequests and finish up the Cauldron quests.
At this point, see where your BiS drops and if its in BRD farm it. If not, quest in WPL EPL Wintersprings. Silithus is cancer. If you're a healer, at level a lot of 5 mans open up for you. DM W and E, Scholo, Strat UD. Finish up preraid bis gear quests, attunes and end game 5 man quests for the last stretch of xp. Grind or go to the hellhole that is Silithus.
I was hoping to skip it, I somehow went from loving dungeons to them being annoying as fuck, I don't know what happened.
Actually, I think I know what happened, I looked up my pre-raid BiS list and it turned out that 90% of it is crafted or PvP rewards, which made the prospect of grinding out 20 dungeons to get one drop that I already outleveled not very appealing.
I haven't even started Un'Goro and Felwood yet, well I did a couple of quests in Un'Goro but yeah. I honestly feel like I'm constantly higher level than where I'm supposed to be, I don't know why.
Prequests for ST > ST > Un Goro > Felwood > WPL > Songstone quest chain up to BRD> Onyx quest > BRD.
Also finish AV quests. With these you should bet at least 55th level, if you have rested maybe 56th. easy. That's gonna open EPL and Wintersprings for you as well as deep BRD and even DM E since you're a lock. JUST DO IT!
Out of all the millions of ways people will somehow attempt to justify the existence of the chinese invading this server and and ruin it for us, through not being able to understand eachother, obvious goldfarmers, groups upon groups of bots
how the hell do they explain BGS? have any of you alliance actually joined a PUG game of AB/WSG lately? it is chinese players afking and doing -nothing- but sitting around, even when combat is going all around them, how can the frogs defend that, a game based off COMMUNICATION and we still wont get a chinese only server
for once, video games, have made me mad.
>10K online but can't find any groups for lowbie dungeons besides WC
>LFG and general chat besides barrens chat pretty much desolate
>/join world /join china
>/china gets maybe 4-6 posts per /world
so nost is confirmed officially dead, then?
Here's one for hoping that right now the staff is having discussions about what to do because this is just ridiculous as is.
While this is great for them and their server to have more and more people, they can't be thinking (I hope) that everyone will fit on one server especially when there is such a huge language barrier.
Ah yes, just like old times with my chinese friends :)
The thing that gets me is that nost hasn't even acknowledged this is an issue that they're looking into...
>33 guild members
10 tendies to whoever guesses what unfathomably boring activity I'll be participating in for 10 hours or so
I'm 60 on pvp as well, I mostly just run it as an alt guild for DC but as far as I know there isn't even actually a single person from DC in AS aside from myself. Up to you if you want to reroll.
The majority of OG posters from back in the day have left, as well as everybody I initially rolled on the server with personally. /world and /1 are slower than ever yet the populion keeps snowballing
Yes, people leave over time, that happens to every community, and they get replaced by newcomers. It's not like NA and EU members just stopped joining.
I don't use world much but when I do use it for dungeons I never have problems finding people quickly, just like in release.
I am unsure why people think that chinks haven't taken over.
Last census showed that top 10 alliance guild by xp [meaning the sheer amount of xp point in the guild increased by number of people as well as increase in their number] and see that 9/10 are chinese. One that isn't chinese is Temporalis, a russian guild. Horde is 6/10 chinese, but those are the only ones I am 100% sure are chinks. The number could be higher.
Taking into account that chinks have guild names with fucking numbers in them that just grow in ascending order, it's safe to believe their guilds are always full to the brim, so full 321 members. On my horde I ganked so many <Brothers gather>. Today there were 7 of them in an Ony pug when I was on my ally.
Chinese have a higher influx of new players.
Chinese are playing on level 60.
Their community is growing and is isolationist. They have adds for trade, enchant and what not in moonrunes. They don't need us, yet they are suffocating us with the undercutting [just check out the AH for some easy farmable items and you will see all the xias undercutting with a large number of auctions.
What's the solution?
I don't want Kronos cause its 800 peak time.
I don't want PvE cause its PvE.
I just want dog eaters to be gone.
I am playing and raiding as moonkin. I am also really good geared for cat. Bear is too much cash atm. Resto is about to be complete with 3 set t2 but without +55 healing enchant and the corehound belt. It's fun in raids. In BWL when I check for weaknesses of dragonkins I can actually properly switch to a different DPS spell. I can shift out and help healing. On Vael I sometimes shift out > Barkskin > Tranq to support the 4 caster DPS group if we get healers go boom.
Go druid. Don't be a pure healer. Have fun leveling. Have fun anon. And pick a male nelf. Never female :3
>And pick a male nelf. Never female :3
I am sorry mate, but put in some effort. I have seen quite a few raid geared moonkins, some switching from resto, some joining as boomchickens.
I joined as moonkin cause I play good and I was more put forwards as a good player when I joined the guild and then had the luck that raid lead was a caster.
I'm on horde side, still leveling and having a lot of fun. Most of this general is alliance, their guild is <Damage Control> (unless I'm wrong... they tend to change or splinter a great deal).
Horde side had a /nosg/ guild, <Salty Dogs>, but I believe it's dead or mostly dead.
It's a cliche, but play what you enjoy. This general has some nice people but isn't very motivated to do anything in-game besides shitpost. The server is very close to 50/50 in terms of pop for both factions, no matter what you should be able to find a group/guild of people to play with at whatever hour you play.

I WANT MY FUCKING WAND
One of the most badass people to ever play xbox live. You may also see him around forums from time to time. Ranked 13 World , Far Cry Instincts, Original Xbox.
"Dude, Deater kicked my ass on far cry!"

if a girl ever talked to me id lay pace first in a puddle for her to walk over me so her feet wouldnt get wet, thats the type of gentleman i am
t. Glacies (a real man unlike you) *unsheathes tongue*
Grinding an alt
Yea, that's unfinished Duskwood. They started building around Stormwind, Elwynn Forest, Westfall, then went from there.
All the houses you can see how they had a huge, functional Goldshire village, but then realized they didn't want to spend time making other race villages so large.
Hello I just woke up that wasn't me okay thanks
I can't decide between orc or human rogue. Maybe dwarf. I was horde in retail vanilla if that matters at all, but kind of want to go ally to be able to play with you faggots.
No idea of profs, I'd guess the default for tryhard rogue'ing is engineer/mining, right?
Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you of an MC raid that gave me hope, hope for the future, Krah's MC pug.
Greentext hi lights:
>Tons of BOEs right ofd the bat, mage ml takes all, clarifies they will be rolled at the end, mage leaves.
>warlock invites to the raid, kill luxi and mag, summon him
>inspect him, shit gear
>whisper krah: shit gear warlock wtf?
>krah whispers: he made me bombs, I don't forget me friends
Fast forward, heavy dark iron ring drops.
>feral druid rolls
>warrior tank whines
>krah on voice: Feral druid gets a roll, he's gonna help tank
>dismissal almost immediate
>maximum mad frenchie war
Fast forward to chest, cauterizing band drops, ruskie wins the band, was told not to loot yet, runs up and grabs it.
>lost loot have to do it again
>band drops again
>ruskie lost roll, tries to ninja, is DI'd
>2 people roll, countdown over, huntard gets mad because he rolled late
>verbally wrecked because reset at rag
Kill rag shit loot I heart out.
Best MC ever, laughed from start to finish due to retarded players not following rules and getting buttmad when the law was laid down.
10/10 would raid again.
What should my warrior rotation be through my 30s and then at 40? I know I'm gonna put mortal strike in there, but I had someone tell me I was wasting my rage on rend and that I should be using heroic strike.
WHY IN THE SEVEN HELLS IS THIS THREAD DEVOID OF LORD KRAH OF HOUSE NOSTALRIUS, FIRST OF HIS NAME, KING OF THE WARRIORS AND THE FIRST SIXTIES, LORD OF THE EASTERN KINGDOMS AND PROTECTOR OF THE REALM???!?!?!
Really? I thought the orc blood fury (or whatever) was better for pve dps than the troll thing, but I could be totally wrong. This is based off what I thought i remember reading on nost or kronos threads, I haven't re-checked in a bit. Will when I get home.
May not matter since I'll likely go human (or dorf because I like dwarves) to be able to maybe play with you homos.
Just cause you say it's not bait doesn't mean its not actually a bait.
I went to that run, and the one they did two weeks ago.
Can confirm, Krah deals with the bads swiftly and without mercy.
Anon forgot to mention a couple important things:
We were told over Teamspeak to NOT go near the chest until our name was called(if you won), and not to loot anything until you were told. Aura(name of the russian pala) rolled and yeah he won, but ran straight for the chest and took the ring, was told to not be a retard in the future and to follow the rules.
Then we rolled for the bracers(pre reset), some warrior won them and the huntard got mad as fuck because he was not allowed to roll(jk he was given like 30 seconds to roll) and left the raid right after. Then the frogs gave us divine justice(Fuck the russians) and the server crashed, with the crash, loot and the fight reset(because rollback).
When we started getting back on, we had to reclear Majordomo, and we got ANOTHER caut band, new rolls because new loot, Aura runs straight for the chest, gets told to not ninja, then stops, waits a minute and tries to ninja and then a pally DI's him as he was about to get the loot.
One of the most epic saves I've ever witnessed.
I'm going again next wednesday, 10/10 pug.
DI is divine intervention, right? How does that work? Couldn't he right click the DI buff/debuff off of him?
either way that is awesome and makes me want to be a paladin. I know everyone says they are boring but it seems like they have a lot of fun utility.
Without bias, hes just a decent person that tries to do good and not shit on everyone, so by 4chan standards the man is a shining beacon of hope in a desolate void of darkness and despair.
The legend grows pretty much every time he interacts with any anons.
Time to drop some ancient lore on Krah.
Last one I've got, Anonymagus was posting here for months, he still posts some lore here and there, but not as he used to :(
>gank a shammy for over an hour in stv on my mage

Does anyone know what "class" a specific warlock pet is, if any? Because I can't figure it out, are they all the same class or do they not have a class?
Asking because in DAB, you can change bars depending on various things, and one of those things is pet name... but pet name doesn't work because half of the time my pet name is "Unknown" due to traveling/zoning, so I figured I'd do it by class if it's possible. If not, any ideas on which other conditional can I use for that purpose?
Doesn't do shit when I add the warrior variable but it doesn't matter if they're all the same class anyway, thanks!
What about creature type? I found a creature type variable too. They're all demons, aren't they? So that wouldn't work either.
Does anyone else use TinyTip? I just installed Theorycraft and the stuff from it doesn't display properly in TinyTip's tooltips unless I turn on "show other addon extras" BUT when I do that, I suddenly get two tooltips when going over a mob/character, one is TinyTip's and looks normal, and the other looks like the basic game tooltip, I don't know why. It seems like some other addon is displaying a tooltip but I don't know which one.
So I just hit level 10 on my rogue and I have no idea how to level. I know I want to eventually go sword spec/sinister strike build. But for leveling is it worth going into the assassination tree for a while? It seems really good with remorseless and +crit and crit dmg.
no problem, but don't worry too much about fucking up - at 60 as a rogue you can make the gold back really quickly even if you reach the max cost of 50g
the rogue spec in the OP is a good guide and is what I used but if you feel like moving some points around go for it
>With a Felhunter, am I supposed to use Spell Lock manually or what? It seems to be a bit weird, it doesn't seem to go off every time.
HELP. I tried manually and this shit doesn't seem to do anything.
>try buying an item in the chinese channel
>they all repeat my english link
>mfw i became a meme in the chinese community
Well shit, I better leave my guild that clears MC in a bit over 60 to join <Next Week>. I mean if they need priests I can only hope I can pass their insanely high bar for guild invites.
><Damage Control> could use some priests
Admit it. you just want some of that dank dorf booty
So, i just hit 51 on my horde warrior and got my quests for Alterac Valley and im so lost, i have no idea whats going on most of the time aside from kill and capture and every AV game i joined has been 3+ hours in, so i cant even attempt to get my ice barbed spear. Is there any way to prioritize games that haven't started yet? And do any of you know any good guides that can explain how the whole thing works?
