Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Picking up where the other thread left off, Master of Transmutation is the way to go. I got a X5 Truegold transmute one day, and a X3 the very next. 8 Truegold for the price of 2!

Not a huge amount. 175G.

But four free bars at the current rate on my server is basically 3000G for free. The server resets at 11pm over here, so my recent transmute granted me a single bar. Oh no. Still, only five bars until I have enough Truegold to make my Vial of the Sands.

But with the huge amount of "free" Volatiles and Truegold you can potentially get, Master of Transmutation is where it's at.

Also Transmute Living Elements will sometimes give you 14-16 extra of a random other Volatile on top of the ones you were transmuting into. The second batch is random, regardless of location, but still, free volatiles!

One baffling thing that my guild discovered today was the way that the Guild Achievement "United Nations" (55 Reputations to Exhalted) appears to work. Now, logically, you'd figure such an achievement would factor in the Exhalted reps of the guild, then add one to the total for every unique reputation up to exhalted (say for example, Mr J has Timbermaw to Exhalted, that would be one point, Ms R has Ashtongue Deathsworn, that would be another, and Mr J and Ms R have both got Therazane up to Exhalted, that would be another single point).

This does not, bizzarly, seem to be the case, as the acheivement appears to need one single person in the guild to have 55 unique Exhalted reputations, not 55 unique exhalted reputations across the guild as a group. As in the case of my guild, I had 39 Exhalted Reputations, a fellow guild member had 39 as well, but a few differed. I got to Revered first, the Achievement shot up to 39. Fellow guildy got to Revered, meter didn't move. What the hooha?

I can't possibly fathom the reasoning behind this, especially since the achievement already requires you to get to Revered with your guild. Well, unless you count the cynical grind trap reasoning, but I would have thought Blizz would have been less jerkish than this.

Hmm, this worries me, because as it is now, we are at 50 and was hoping the next 5 exhalteds would get us there, but now that I know my fear for this achievement is realized, I don't know how we will get it.

The patch does fix the event bugs. The United Nations issue is also a bug, but I hadn't heard when it was going to be fixed. Hopefully it will be in 4.06 so I don't have to grind the last 5 myself.

On the Truegold thing I'd been doing the life -> air instead because Truegold bars were basically selling for mats cost on my server, and that way I was guaranteed some gold if it didn't proc. With the patch increasing air droprate though, I might have to look into Truegold again.

The changes to feral PvP hopefully won't be as painful as they look to be... most of them I can deal with, but the powershifting one makes me a sad kitty. Especially since it's ONLY feral that has to deal with it.
QUOTE(The Fluid Druid blog)
Oh, and since it appears that the feral PvP nerf is going live: I can?t wait to PvP another feral, have both our Nature?s Grasp effects proc at the same time, and engage in a slap fight. That?s about all I can look forward to enjoying.


Also it's a pain finding competent people that aren't already guilded and/or happy with where they are. Last week we tried pugging to find people for a second raid group, and only got one person out of that horrible mess(before it degraded into a BoT trash farm) that was worthwhile.

So, the patch IS landing today? Well, guess I need to gurd my loins for a fresh round of wall-to-head contact. Will this also include fixes to Love is in the Air? I saw it was bugged to Hellfire Peninsula and back.

Also, this means the Meta Gems will, you know, be GOOD again right?

Yep, patch today. Ret is supposed to be better. The game play is supposed to smooth out, but I was finding as my gear got a little better, the play and the dps was increasing pretty well. 26k on 10 man halfus was tops for my guild the other night. Oh well, another week or two to get used to a new way to play/gem/gear. AS far as my dk goes, HB gets a nerf which pretty much eliminates any niche Frost had going for it. The buff to 2h frost might be enough to make me go back to that since the speed of the gameplay was so much more fun than DW's constant lack of resources..

For a while race-changed Worgen were bugged and couldn't queue. Apparently it was related to a bug back in Beta where it was messed up because race-changed Worgen hadn't done the starter quests. Well some enterprising Worgen remembered that there was a workaround in the Beta to get into the starter zone phase and do the quests still, and posted it on the forums.

Good news is is the trick worked... bad news is it bugged my character for a little bit. After doing the trick I was apparently still in the same terrain phase, but in the proper NPC phase to do the questline. I was able to do it all the way up to where you get freed from the stocks. (And as a side note you can't fly in the starter phase.) After the cinematic I was standing on a box floating in water in nonexistant stockades while the NPCs swam to me to do the little scene. After I was "freed" I took a step off the box, and promptly DCed from server... and kept DCing when I tried to log in. A quick GM ticket later though and I was sitting outside Stormwind. On the plus side it doesn't seem like it bugged anything(except I don't know what'll happen if I try flying into Gilneas again). On the minus side, I still don't get a top hat. icon-screamer.gif

So some guildies and I decided to try our hand at Baradin Hold tonight.

For a guild roster of almost 900, only three of us were brave enough to attempt it, all the rest were PUGs brought in from the outside. Now I understand that's the nature of Casual Guilds, but this is getting rather silly. We keep getting more and more Level 85s, but the Guild as a whole seems less and less inclined to run together for damn near anything. Most of the folks that run together are friends/family and once they have a set group, they're disinclined to bring anyone in from the outside.

Combine that with a Guild Leader who is a nice guy, but has some delusions about the Guild (He does Hour Long Podcasts for the Guild and wants to be the first guild at both Guild Level 25 and Maxed Membership at 1000) and I'm beginning to wonder if the guild has any sort of staying power. Especially when one of our PUG BH Members had a guild at equal level with us - Level 15 - with significantly less members.

I dunno, I guess I'm wondering if we aren't getting a little too big for our britches. We've got a lot of bloat - people will funnel five to six alts into the guild at a time. We're an Altaholics Paradise - and the recruitment drives are Shotgun pattern, so we pick up drifters of all level ranges that are very active players, but can't participate in the Guild's Max Level shenanigans.

At this point, simply inertia will keep the guild active for a long time to come, but I do have to wonder where the guild's going to be in six months. This whole "Serious Casual" label the GL has sounds good in Guild Recruitment, but what it ends up being is getting a lot of players who don't really want to commit to anything. We've got a Tank that's more interested in soloing all the old content dungeons he can rather then tank for Guild Heroics/Regulars.


But, now that I've thoroughly derailed my train of thought...all in all, the first boss of Baradin Hold isn't that bad. I daresay he has easier mechanics then his VoA counterparts. We couldn't get him down below 300k health, mainly because the PUG was having serious connectivity issues. People were DCing left and right. We would have had him multiple times if not for that fact (As an aside: No one in my guild were among those that DCed).

But the main reason I wanted to share this story is probably the most hilarious Rage Quit in WoW History. Bring in a Druid Healer after one of our initial healers DCed mid-fight (And we *STILL* got him down to 300k! The DPS was there!). We make an attempt, Druid Healer keels over right away. We wonder why, turns out she's not specced into getting a Dispel.

One of my Guildies is an Enhancement/Resto Shaman, and he offers to Heal/Dispell. We ask the Druid if she'd like to go Kitty. Druid suddenly goes on a rage:

<Druid> "I've done this multiple times with a Priest and Me 2 Healing!"
<Raid Member> "...We don't have a Priest."
<Raid Leader> "Would you like to DPS?"
<Druid> "Screw this! I'll do it with my regular group with a Priest to Dispel!"
*Druid Drops Raid*
<Raid Leader> Really? Since when does "Do you think you could DPS?" turn into "RAAAAAAAGEQUIIIIIIT"?

I want to just stress: Nobody was giving her a hard time about her spec/her healing. We literally just asked her if she'd mind DPSing and she dropped.
