I definitely see where you're coming from as I used to be play a lot more religiously myself back in highschool. However, after leaving and coming back after 3-4 years I just don't take the game seriously as I used to (really not at all). I just hold up to my guild obligations since I was selected into the mythic team and I'm fortunate to say that since I think I'm mediocre at best.

I've never transferred and don't intend to but I can see why you might if your server and guilds are suffering like that. We have 5 guilds that are introed into mythic, the rest are 6/7H. However despite that the server is still relatively backwater at best and has been since mid BC.

One good method our guild had for our heroic and eventually mythic team was that by Dec 2nd you have to be ilvl 630 and have the 680 ring or you're a no go for the week until then. You must study the boss mechanics before so we don't have to do any more attempts than necessary besides on the first week/first try.

If I were an officer I'd try and convey just getting 5 more good players for the 20 player mythic team, normal runs are already redundant except for alt/xmog runs.

Bought warlords of draenor a month ago and didn't get to touch it since due to real life. Only ever played wow briefly before, around a month total. I am a heavy duty raider and top end pvp lover, so hoping to get a server recommendation here if anyone has suggestions smile.gif? I definitely would have fun with ashran if it's active anywhere, but top priority is good raiding and arena availability. Any ideas, alliance ideally? Someone suggested light bringer back at the beginning of December.

Heaviest pop servers, Zuljin, Stormrage, etc. Depends on your faction too, a lot of servers only swing way in population.

Avoid my server (Echo Isles), depressing little place, merged with Draenor.

Stormrage and Sargeras are the best Alliance realms. I have raided on both and you will have plenty of guilds to choose from for raiding or pvp. Downside to them: login ques all day. New patch day? Good luck logging in that night.

Quick question, how is a G3258 compared to a 4790K - both with a decent overclock (4.5-4.7ghz) in raidsituations?

Thinking about changing setups (need some parts for another pc) but all i can afford right now is a decent Z97 + memory and a G3258 but will it be an upgrade from my x5650 at 4.2ghz?

I'd guess so. WoW barely scales onto a third core.

4690k/4790k would perform at least a bit better (~5-10%, maybe more) over the g3258, but i7 wouldn't outperform i5 unless the 2MB of l3 cache helped in a small way

The week before Xmas, we had him down to sub 10%, now we can't get past phase 3 with the new folks.

Very frustrating. One good thing about Imp, he has a 15 minute enrage timer. I've seen videos online where guilds had 7 healers, 7 dps, and 2-3 tanks. Takes awhile to kill stuff, but with all them raid heals, no one came close to dying with all the damage going out. I'm glad the holidays are over so we can have our A team back and start mythic.

I really, REALLY hate this current content. Highmaul is not fun to me at all. I hate the itemization and can't wait to get some tier pieces on my DK come next patch. /end rant

Everything with Versatility needs to burn in hell

Friend and I's guild fell about so we started a new one and already have a decent roster of 655+ players to start 10 mans this week, should be interesting. Im interested to see how 9 hours a week of raiding can do progression wise compared to when I was hardcore in WoTLK. I hate Highmaul with a passion so Im glad the new raid comes out soon.

My desire to login is getting less and less... my guild is limited in progression because we have to pug 50% or more of the raid each week, PvP isn't overly compelling as a ret pally (I mean I face roll 100% of the time), and garrisons are so tedious that they are practically all I end up doing...

Maybe it's time to level my rogue..

Well I am in a much better place. I did some forums searching and found a great guild on Stormreaver who was looking for a DK tank. We did a 20 minute Mumble interview and then their GM says, "Well, we have 12 people on in the guild, let's do a quick Heroic Imp to test you out."

I'm sitting there flabbergasted...I've seen phase 4 once in all the attempts I have on that fight. Their tank tells me when to taunt and where to stand at each phase and we one shot the boss like it's a joke. I bonus rolled the 2-hander and then my penis exploded. They uploaded and checked their logs and told me they'd love to have me. Two hours later I had all my toons transferred. I liked my previous guild, but the struggle was too much when you're carrying that many people. These guys I joined one-shotted on alts, what I've been wiping one for weeks....

I feel bad leaving my guild during their xmas break. It always sucks when you gear a player and they leave, but in the end, you have to do what makes you happy. Unless your guild is paying for your game time...then they own your ass.

Still looking for a 2s or 3s team for Arenas.

I'm a ret with 6pcs + weapon. Haven't really done any 2s or 3a this season at all.
