Been busy at work (and at home, when I get time? I’m playing, not blogging. :)), but here’s some quick-hit thoughts on 3.3.

  • New LFG system is awesome. This. Had groups within two minutes for all three instances I ran (admittedly, being tank/healer helps). 2 instances completed within 30 minutes, no issues. Was able to kick a DPS from the third group, which then finished without issue. (Note: Please learn where the new instances are located in-game so you can make it back in if you die. I gave the poor guy 10 minutes before I had to kick him.) Even if you hate pugs, give it a shot.
  • Market opportunities are available. I’ve made about 2000 gold so far from converting leather to arctic furs. If you have a LW to make heavy leather, you can do this. I’ve also sold several Ametrines that I bought with excess Conquest emblems, and several Majestic Zircon’s that I’ve saved from from my xmutes…do this now while people are getting new 5/10 man gear. I also have about ~30 Mooncloth to sell, but I’m waiting a bit until people start getting rep with the new faction.
  • Rogues rock. That poison buff really helped, though I’ll have to raid with one to be sure…only done a few random 5-mans so far.

Working on an update to the ArPen post…should be out next week.

  1. The rogue poison buff is awwwwwwesome :) my little alt is quite happy.

  2. Awesome stuff on this blog…just needed to comment on the new LFG thingy…because it grabs people from different realms it makes it harder getting to know people in the game on your server, which SUCKS. I play the game not only because of the game itself, I play it mostly because I love my in-game friends.

    Just my first thoughts…

    • I can see that. My experience was different, in that 5-mans were so easy that I never saw the same person more than once, whereas in PUG raids I’d meet people repeatedly and find friends.

  3. I like LFG 5man for H’s…
    For Raiding i got my guild… no one else.

    Map/Quest Tracking its a cool upgrade… but still i stay on Carbonite and their many useful tools…

    The gunship battle its really fun… specially when a uncareful guildie just fall out the boat… LMAO… (happend to me too.. ¬¬ )

    • I’ve never liked carbonite, but I know many people love it…just personal preference, I suppose. I”m looking forward to ICC, but my guildies have been having too much fun in 5-mans to try the new 10 so far this week (we spent our scheduled raiding time trying to finish TOC25…sigh…just don’t have the rDPS.)
