Pain...agony...



So, everyone knows about World of Warcraft. It's critacally acclaimed to be one of the most addicting MMORPGs of all time and it shows that blizzard knows what they are doing. There is so much to do in this game and depending on how much time you spend on this game there is always something new to see and explore. Lore, Raids, PVP, events, and more.

So there isn't much to explain here. But I'm sure most of you know about the previous expansion Wrath of the Lich King?

He's dead. And a new monster wants to rule over the world. His name is Deathwing and he likes to fly around the entire world ripping you a new one.

Does that mean you play World of Warcraft as well?

yes! And I am sure many members here do the same as well!

So what is this 4.2 I am looking at in the thread title?

4.2 is basically the patch and thus there is new content to explore. In my opinion it's basically a good time to jump in and play if you have not done so already. Mainly because when this patch hits there are quests to do so you can go ahead and get your hands into some of the raids. Which, by the way, is where the good stuff happens.

Not to mention there is a continuation of the storyline. Which right now is the best it's ever been:



4.2 Brings the long awaited return of Ragnaros, a classic Raid boss that was a total bitch and a half back in the day. But now? He is under the control of Deathwing, and believe me, I tried taking him on in the PTR. And he is seriously tough.

4.2 also brings new quests to get some epic gear, a continuation of the storyline, the FIRELANDS raid, new craftable items to strengthen yourself with, and so, so much more.

I want to join *This* server!

For starters, this isn't about me! It's about who YOU want to join! This thread can also be used to advertise your guild and server or whatnot. So please don't think you HAVE to join my server and faction. The beauty of this game is that you are your own oyster: You can do whatever you want.

Main aBitmap. Lvl 85 Undead Warlock. IL 359

Guild :Onyx Wolves. Ravenholdt. RP PVP

Alts : Hopper, Lvl 85 Goblin Shaman. IL 343

Hopefully this thread kicks off into something good. If not I'll bump it every now and then (Months) to see.

And what about the people like me that do not like raiding? Other that cost, I quit because I didn't like raiding... no time for it, and it shouldn't be all about raid gear... I mean, what is the point of crafting if low level raid gear is better than the highest level crafting.

Granted, I quit before Wrath came out. I wanna play again, it is just a time/cost issue... I really think that Blizzard overcharges considering that all the other really huge MMORPGs run free or like half the price.

Blizzard pretty much solved the problem with casual players confronting raiders. So they are focusing a little on PVP more for those of us who do not want to down the bosses out there.

But yeah now would be a definite time to jump in.

I personally loved raiding. The only problem is that I would either never get an invite or I would be stuck with a group that constantly had an idiot that would get the whole group killed (or a healer with dial-up, so to speak). This made any sort of raiding damn near impossible, other than the first 1-3 bosses, depending on the instance. I was never able to pass either Rotface or Festergut in ICC. I couldn't do ToC until after the gear was obsolete. I never got to experience what it was like to fight through Ulduar, except for weekly bosses. I really missed a lot.

As far as PvP making up the endgame? I love it but it's unbalanced as all hell. A rogue is great when a rogue is unexpected... but in Arena? You know what you're going up against. No chance of ever besting a Paladin, that's straight out the window. Warriors would rarely fall. If I was lucky I could kill a Priest. If the Mage wasn't paying attention I could kill them but that was about it. With the changes in Cataclysm, there was a bit more balancing as far as classes went, but if you didn't have PvP gear early then you was almost impossible to get it without hours of grinding honor, and that sucks more when you're put in to a battleground with afk players after an hour of waiting in the queue.

End game aside... I really enjoy leveling up in this game. I'm probably the only person out there who thinks so. This became even better when Cataclysm changed everything that I knew about the world, making it all fresh again and adding more interactivity to the quests. This is one thing that I love about WoW that I couldn't stand about other MMO's. Even in Vanilla WoW, the quests were more rewarding and less of a mindless chore. I recently played Forsaken World, and while I like the game... the quests are purely boring. It's literally "go here and talk to this guy. Then this guy. Then this guy. Then a tutorial that you're forced to do. Then talk to this guy. THEN kill 5 of these." WoW skipped the zig-zagging and you went straight to fighting things!

I like the world. A LOT. It's easy to get engaged in the story, especially with quests that evolve the terrain. That's one thing that will never be replaced! I simply wish that getting into raids was a bit easier (without having to be in a waiting list for a few months). Gear scaling is and always will be terrible, especially in PvP. Oh yeah, and I don't have the $15 to be playing otherwise I would!

One thing about the raids though is that if you play with your trusted friends and research ahead of time. You'll eventually learn that raiding is easy as long as this happens

- You stay out of shit on the ground.
- Don't pull off the tank
- Healer should never blow his big heals unless an "oops" moment happens.
- DPS follows simple instructions.

That's it. That's all there is to raiding. When the actual Cata raids came out people were too busy getting gear and instantly learned that you can't just blow up the bosses like you would in ICC. You actually had to have a strategy and a guide that you have to follow in order for the fights to run smooth.

Ive downed BWD and Tot4W. It was no simple task and it does get stressful in certain areas. But once you down that boss after many attempts it feels extremely rewarding.

Plus Blizzard kinda put Tol Borad there, which is kinda like the "newbie Raid boss". And even added Zul Aman and Zul Gurub, which drops epics. Not as difficult has the raids, but still has the challenge a raid puts out.



So once you get up to 346 gear you can easily do these Heroic dungeons and not only continue to get your faction gear, but these drops are -not- as good as Raid epics, but they are still epics and getting the gear that makes up for the gear you can't get unless you get into raids. This dungeon makes up for it.

So there is a lot of heat right now saying that patch 4.2 drops tomorrow. Which means there is another epic storyline, new raids, crafting items, and more. Also meaning easier earlier raids thanks to the new gear, and character balances (More like nerfs muhahahahah)

Hope to see you guys in Ravenholdt soon!

Yeah, they nerfed the BBQ Sauce out of the normal Cataclysm raids. Walked in with my Shaman and pretty much got to the last boss on BWD. Blizzard took out the insta-kills most boses do and lowered the HP / Dmg by like 20%, making it that much more easier to do them.

However, they did not touch the heroic versions of those raids. Which is where the good stuff is. Firelands is pretty damn hard on it's own and so far I have only downed one boss in Firelands.

Thankfully Blizzard is pretty much on it's "Were gonna give the content to you in buckets" and it's easy to get rep gear for the Firelands faction. You can just do trash runs almost all the way up to exalted and get your hands on some pretty damn good pre-raid gear.

As for PVP, only way to get Season 10 gear is by drops at the moment. Over in TB, which is a long story on how to even get into those raids.

Storyline wise is pretty boss.

My mother got me to try again.

Probably.

Unfortunately I'm two expansions short... Oh well. Free runs and a reliable enough healer? can't argue too much.

I'm on Sen'jin now, Horde. My mother's already helped me out a fair bit though.

Weird, I know.

Edit: And on Crushridge, Alliance. Sen'jin for Horde and playing with family, Crushridge for Cordilon and any Xeogamers that join us. (maybe.)

So 4.3 is coming out soon. Possibly November from what many people say as well as my personal opinion. Either way, that dragon in the OP? He will soon be fightable.

Mind you I have not even touched the Firelands bosses yet. I can; I just have not been able to do so. The guild I am in right now is working through the raid and has yet to beat it. Meanwhile I am stuck in Raid2 and we are currently doing the same thing we have all been doing. Bastion of Twilight (Done) Throne of the four winds (Done) and Blackwing's Decent (Final Boss still not done after all this time).

But 4.3 adds a lot to the table! New dungeons to get even more raid gear (Firelands stuff), Transmorgification, which is the ability to make your armor look like another piece of armor. Pretty fancy, and finally. DEATHWING RAID!

So excited! At least when this patch comes out Firelands will be nerf'd and we all can get the gear we need to take on Deathwing. Finally.

I can't wait to get a bunch of Vanilla gear for my RP realms when Transmog comes out! Seriously, WoW has needed this feature since the beginning of time.

Good, that'll fix one of my biggest complaints, namely that shit looks ridiculous.

There's a fair bit of lower and mid-level armor I like, but all the top-end gear I've seen looks utterly absurd. Especially the Shoulders Of Doom (and I'm pretty sure that WoW has no non-doom shoulders.)

My subscription lapsed due to inconvenient bill timing and time reduction at work, but I'll probably pick it up again later. Parents aren't playing as much either since dad's college courses started up again.

Cleared bastion of Twilight in not only record time. But pre-raid nerf with no one dying. Again, the raids got nerfed again today for not only normal modes. But heroic as well. So if you want to get your hands on some epic raid gear. Now would be a good chance because it's gotten so much easier to clear them.

Firelands my group has not been able to do yet. I have some friends who are almost done with the raid and tonight I was told that the nerfs were a joke and they had were able to clear the bosses without a hitch. Looks like Blizzard wants to have more people complete raids and it's no question that it's indeed easier.

Also if you want to get your hands on some good trinkets (IL 365) Brewfest has an absolutely simple dungeon boss that drops 265 epic trinkets (And a chance at a mount!) that are rediculous. For my Shaman, it not only adds like +380 to Crit chance. But it also has a chance for when I do crit it adds 4000 atk power for 10 seconds.

And it constantly procs. My DPS went from 17k DPS to about 20k. Highest on a rare occasion and when my procs all proc was 22k. And this is without wolves or Bloodlust. So doing those dungeons are excellent if you want some good stuff. Plus I heard the tanking and healing trinkets are pretty sick on it's own.

Quite possibly one of the best features that they have recently put into WoW!

You guys make it happen!
