They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

For some reason every time I see your sig Rust, I can't help being reminded of the quote "You can't have slaughter without laughter."

Also, ever thought about starting your own guild? If other people besides you aren't liking the way things are going, you could always splinter off your own guild. Both my current guild and the previous one were both splinters off a larger guild originally.

Our first raid team was short a couple people tonight, so me and our unholy DK filled in. Didn't do too bad... 4 of our normal 5 bosses, and that's with losing at least a half hour to waiting for a guildie to come back after a DC. (Vent also went down in the middle of our last attempt/kill on Omnitron.) I also did real well on Halfus and actually managed a ranked parse... which I'm kind of proud of, since most of the people who rank on Halfus is because they're on Halfus 99% of the time(typically for interrupts), and I was only on him after the two drakes were down. Pulled 35k that fight, with the damage debuff.

2 Heals and 2 ranged, and we'll have a full team 2. Course it'd be easier to find quality people if half the good guilds on the server weren't also recruiting right now...

I know of one other member who is slightly dissatisfied. Everyone else kind of takes it in stride. I know one of our officers just uses the guild to PvP with his Children. As an aside, that's an absolute hoot to listen to over vent. Especially the 7 year old little girl playing a Undead Rogue.

EDIT: The changes to the dungeon system also is a bit disheartening. Now that regulars give Justice Points - and you get 170 for the initial random - I can see it being even more difficult to put Heroic Groups together (As I still don't trust PUGs in that regard), and I need five Chaos Orbs if I'm going to make my Belt/Chest piece!

So the server was pretty stable yesterday, so we formed up for the raid. Unfortunately, we were down 2 healers, one of them being the team leader. So we grabbed a couple of folks from guild (which was easy since the other team isn't raiding this week). Knocked out BH, sharded both pieces that dropped, and decided to head to Magmaw. It was kind of funny to be 3-healing with 3 Shaman. That was a LOT of Healing Rain. icon-hotrod.gif We 3-shot him, with one of the wipes due to one of our melee hitting a lag spike when he was supposed to be getting the chains. We got him down, my wife got a healy belt for her shaman and the Symbiotic Worm dropped. I didn't even ask. I just looted it to the other tank. I claimed it was because he didn't have a stam trinket. In actuality, I have been pushing as much gear his way as possible in an effort to help with his squishyness. My wife and I think it is an issue with him not using his cooldowns effectively enough. I'm going to talk to him about it.

So we decided to go hit Halfus because of the favorable drake comp (Nether, Time, and Whelps). We were close to the enrage timer, but we 1-shot him. I know it was arguably the easiest composition possible, but it was still nice to get our first kill as a 1-shot. That, with getting Mag for a second week in a row (officially putting him on farm), made last night a damn good night.

To top it off, we got another 2 BoE epics on Halfus trash (2x mail Spirit legs) for the second week in a row. Those, with the drops off Halfus himself (2 mail pieces, Agi hands and a caster helm), meant that all four Shaman we had in the run got something last night. Kinda funny.

So I've got a Goblin Rogue at Level 20, with 225 Engineering (Because I'll be damned if I have a Goblin without a flying machine!). So I trekked to Tanaris and got Goblin Engineering Specialization.

All I can say, between the Goblin Mortar, Explosive Sheep, and Goblin Sapper Charge I'm going to be an annoying, volatile little cuss in PvP. I can't wait till Level 24. icon-fire.gif

Furthermore, anyone leveling lowbie Alts would definitely benefit from Low Level PVP. Yeah the Honor's middling, but the honor prices on the Faction Quartermasters are generally middling too. I picked up a Neckpiece and a pretty potent Trinket (+4 Stamina and it restores 3 Health every 2 Seconds) for a song (40 Honor all together) from the Warsong Outriders. Considering I've been spending all my Max PVP Bracket Levels doing nothing but PVPing (And thus have 300 honor), I felt it was a fair deal. The Neckpiece is nothing to sneeze at either. +6 Agility and +2 or +4 Stamina I believe.

I don't like the new "no Holy Power on miss/dodge/parry" mechanic for Crusader Strike. I think it's pretty dodgy they stealth-added it to the patch notes as a "bug fix" after they refused to give an answer for the whole PTR cycle, I feel it's unfair compared to how Rogue/Druid combo builders and DK rune strikes are handled, and because of this Paladins are going to need something like Overpower or Rune Strike added to not be effortlessly destroyed by high avoidance classes in PvP and possibly to even function as tanks.

Vengeance is insanely overpowered. Threat really shouldn't be an issue if you are paying attention, even below hit and expertise cap. If missing an occasional charge of Holy Power because of a missed Crusader Strike is preventing you from functioning as a tank, then you have problems. Just saying.

We didn't do much progression last week because of the Super Bowl, so we made up for it this week. We went back to Chimearon, with an old Druid friend of mine helping out and blew him apart. I got t a video of it too



After that we decided to try the Ascendant Council. I have heard a lot of things about them being really tough and a massive coordination check, so I was pretty much set to spend the night learning them and maybe get them down the next time we see them. I was wrong there, we got them down after five attempts. Even when they formed Captain Planet it was not that bad. Also got to make a video of it, but honestly it ended up being a bit boring, I had to sit in a corner a good chunk of phase two because of one of the mechanics.



Next up, Cho'gal!

As for Paladin tanks needing something I say that's over reacting. Our Pally MT has been doing fine since this patch dropped. On many fights he is the only tank we use and no issues at all cropped up. You can even see him in the videos. Well okay Chimearon got him, but that is part of the fight.

good thing I'm geared to tank,

first time raid tanking and we kill the first encounter in the throne of the four winds.

Chimaeron is pretty much all dependent on the healers. If you have a good bunch of healers you can do it, but if you have meh healing you will get slaughtered. Right now it is actually one of the few fights where the difficultly is balanced well between 10 and 25. Which reminds me...

We did some work on Cho'gall Sunday. We managed to get him to the 25% transition, but the fight is really rough. It is really showing off in some ways how Blizzard messed up the tuning for this Tier in the 10 mans, as it is pretty much the 25 man fight, yet you don't have all the people you get in a 25 around to deal with all the things occurring.

That being said, we should hopefully get him down this week and then move to Al'akir. Nef will be the last target, and he has some similar issues, though in a different direction. At least on that one we do have some stuff to handle the mechanics well just because of our make up. That and it is another really massive healer check, which fortunately we have a bunch of good ones.

After Nef good chance we will hold off on the HM's for a bit, as I am not liking what I am reading about how doable they are in the 10 man versions.

tanked for a majority of the raid, with the exception of valiona and theralion, and Atramedes.

I also got a nice ret helmet from maloriak.

Looks like we are finally starting to get going (slowly but surely). We pugged a pretty darn good Pally healer who seemed like she liked us a lot. Hopefully that means we can actually have a 3rd healer we can depend on going forward.

As for the raid itself, we 1-shot Magmaw for the 2nd week in a row, which was nice. That gave us a bunch of time to get used to the transitions in the Omnitron fight. We were all a lot comfortable with the fight by the time we got it down a little before 10. I know that I was a lot more comfortable calling it. People were transitioning to the next mech in a much more fluid fashion, slimes were getting focused and nuked, and the Arcanotron shield buff was getting spellstolen. The actual kill went almost perfectly. We were all pretty excited.

By 10, I told the raid leader that I wanted to go hit Halfus trash, since raid end time is between 10:30 and 11:00. Given our tremendous luck in drops on Halfus trash (four epics in the last 2 weeks, and 5 total going into last night), it was at least worth a look. Plus, I liked the idea of starting thursday's raid night off on a boss we had previously downed who happened to have a favorable drake comp this week (Storm, Time, and Whelps). Well, the idea paid off, as we got our SIXTH epic drop, the Soul Blade! Since the other tank had the first one that had dropped, I was able to nab this one.

Overall, I would say it was a pretty positive night overall. Sure, we aren't pushing Cho'Gall or anything, but I think that we are finally starting to hit that happy balance of "casual progression" we were shooting for.

New post to bump the threat for a little advice.

We were doing Maloriak last night. Simple enough mechanics-collapse on red, spread on blue, nuke adds on green (with some interrupts). No big. So we were trying to release 9 adds for each green phase, but were having some issues. We would allow 3 summons to go though, but the adds wouldn't show up right away (we knew they weren't being interrupted because DBM was announcing "X" Adds Remaining"). Hell, on a few attempts, the third set of adds wasn't showing up until the middle of the damn green phase. So of course, I invariably ended up with 12+ adds on me on any given phase (worst attempt had me with 15 on me all at once. That was bad and hurty.

So I ask these few questions:
1. After we had killed a total of 18 adds, he kept casting the summon and we kept getting adds (prior to phase 2). Is the mechanic that we release a total of 18, kill them, then interrupt all other summons?
2. I we just interrupt all of the summons, will he simply call 18 adds all at once at the beginnng of phase 2?
3. Is there a special way to moderate the spawn times of the adds? Or do they come out whenever the hell they feel like it after a summon has been allowed to go through?

Thanks for any advice you all have.

First off, DBM's counter currently bugs sometimes and miscounts adds. It sometimes counts them even if it's interrupted, so the only surefire way to know how many are out are to count the ones running around after the OT. We found that out after one failed attempt where we saw DBM announcing "-3 Adds remaining" and "-6 Adds remaining."

Second, even though they say they hotfixed, for us last night he still interrupted his add cast himself to run to the cauldron and throw in a vial. With this happening, you can sometimes end up with only 4 attempted summons in the first "rotation" of phases, which can cause problems if you try to stick to something like "always interrupt the first two casts." The safest way we've thought of to handle that, if the healers are up to it, is don't interrupt the summons at all until there are nine out, then interrupt every remaining one until the first green phase. It's also fairly safe to interrupt the very first summon he attempts and let the next three go; then you only worry about the 5th if there actually is one.

As to your other questions? I believe he will still try and cast even if all the adds are out, but it'll do nothing. If you interrupt all the casts, then yeah, you'll get zerg rushed by all 18 adds when phase 2 starts. As to the summon time, I've always seen them pop out right after the summon goes through with very little delay, assuming that nothing interrupted. If you've got a lock running a fel puppy, make sure they're not accidentally interrupting with their pet, as I think that one can interrupt.

Thanks Wind.

We aren't running any Locks, so no issues there. As for the summons, I'm focusing him and watching the cast finish-with no adds spawning. It's really weird. I think that next week, we will just let the summons go and only start interrupting after I have 9 adds on me. If they want to pop when the summon happens, great. If they don't want to show until 15-20 seconds later, whatever.

Anyways, even with the issues, we got him to 9% on our best attempt. Not too bad. With that and 1-shotting Halfus before that, we killed 3 bosses this week, having actually learned both the Omni and Maloriak fights. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the week. And it seems that the Pally healer that we pugged will be sticking around. We are all pretty excited by that. Good healer, and she seemed to fit in well with the group.

I'd suggest giving Throne of the Four Winds a try as well. Conclave's easier than Omnitron(but then that's not saying a lot) and it's mostly a finesse fight with all the platform hopping. As long as everyone does their job, they should go down smooth, and it'd give everyone a shot at epic rings and belts. We actually went after them(and the twin dragons in BoT) before we did Maloriak the first time. I wouldn't try Al'Akir yet though, with the DPS race in the second phase.

I'm getting really fed up with a bug thats been plaguing my hunter since the begining. Randomly my hunter will just.. decide to shoot something. Completely at random. Tonight had it wipe Heroic SFK When randomly my hunter shot /through/ 2 walls and a staircase at a mob that wasnt even targeted (and I obviously had no LOS on) before or after the shot went off. This was with me /typing/ in the party window which would obviously further make this eventuality an impossiblity as any keypressed would have gone to the chatbar and not the world. Given that im a hunter and this was a pug, I think the sheer impossibleness of this being done on purpose or accidently was about the only thing that kept me from getting labeled a Huntard and being kicked.
