Yeah a good weapon will do wonders for you.  Unless you're a Tank then armor and a weapon near the top end are wonderful.

Most of the armor sets look kinda lame. Windwalker for rogues looks STUPID.

I am in the process of collecting my Death Mantle, that was the best rogue set ever...before that it was Bloodfang.

Priest T5 is drool worthy, though.

I agree, I did pick up the t6 cloth shoulders for my rogue recently to make my "slayer of Domeil" set for my rogue. White theme/assassin look. I get creative sometimes.

Hmmm... I want the T6, too. But I can't solo BT >.>
At least I think it was BT that dropped the T6 shoulder token...? God, I can't recall v.v

It is, I am surprised you are having problems finding groups. The new craze on my server is doing old content, grps are almost always forming to get past tier sets.

I seem to recall duoing the first couple of bosses in BT. Had to pull in a 5-man group to do the event with the phantom, though, and beyond that you'd need more bodies just to deal with the raid effects (bloodboil stacks, Requiem nohealzone & interrupts, the wraith fight, etc.).

I think you need 15 or so for most of the later ones.. maybe a bit more. Some of the bosses simply aren't doable with the effects. Of course if you get a full 40 man it's wicked evil as folks dash off to kill mobs and the early bosses in smaller groups.

Currently you can do BT with five, will take you a little longer but it can be done. You do need a healer for the last half.

The group I run with is normally 6-7 with 1 healer 1 tank and 5-6 dps, one that can off tank if needed and we breeze through the places in under an hour. My cursed vision has not dropped yet!

You can get 40 people in a 25-man instance? This is news to me.

Sooo...I'm officially of the Alliance now...no longer of the Horde...

People on the Horde side were pissing me off way too often for my tastes. xP

So now my roomies call me a traitor. xD

You're no traitor, you've awakened to the true light of goodness, nobility, and civilization.

Prepare for incompetence in the battle grounds, and PVP in general, but also political debates running rampart in Stormwind. These are the only two common denominators I found in the alliance. Though with the right guild, the PvP issue disappears. I think the one I was in were all former horde come to think about it. xD very Ironic.

Awesome! I wasn't, I played PvP servers. ;) Though jokes aside, you should have tons of fun then. Alliance is at-least good with dungeons, albeit not always as good as horde.

And really I just like the races on that side as well, and since I'm a sucker for story it's fun to work with the characters on that side. A heretic human mage, a pious human warlock, a two natured draenei shaman, it's more fun for me in that aspect ;D

Welcome! Just a few tips to remember:

We actually have cities. Cities with stone walls instead of pointy sticks for walls. It takes some getting used to.
We don't scream out For the Horde!.. we kinda say for the alliance in a conversational voice.
Plagues are something we suffer. not things we cause.
It is no longer allowed to have a poster of a Blood Elf Female in your bedroom. It now has to be Jaina. A female gnome is RIGHT OUT.
And remember to visit Ironforge for the first ever Dwarf Olympics, featuring never seen before events like the Artistic Beard Combing and Tying Events (male and female version), the 50 meter tunnel, and for those who can take it, the Marathon Grumble!

(giggles, I can't resist sharing my brand of humor at times on Moonie, including the following gnome jokes.

"Does any one know the word in the gnomish language for "an invention that works perfectly the first time"? There's no such word.. it's an unknown concept in the gnomish language!"

and...

"What do you call four gnomes in a mining cart, flying off a cliff in Westfall to their doom? Answer: A disappointment! You could've fit another eight or ten in there, if ya crammed em in!"

(No, no one ever told me that I had a weird sense of humor before, why do you ask?))

Doh!  Wrong raid I was thinking of. We did a few of the old 40 man for fun like that. It was all group one kill this guy, group 2 kill that one.  We were doing guild achievements.  AQ 40 took a little time since some of the groups got lost.

Doing AQ 40 as a duo is actually challenging!

Unfortunately sorta impossible to kill the twin emperors. I mean I'm sure it can be done if you have the right class/talent setup to tank and do damage to both emperors with only two people (maybe something like two paladins to slowly chip them down while healing themselves through the damage), but not in a manner that's convenient or practical for just walking in and doing it.

Also, we tried killing the slime boss without any frost damage just to see what would happen. In case anyone hadn't already tested or read up on it, it just sits at 1% and never dies. D: Also the room eventually fills with poison. But you can just run out to reset the encounter, so no big deal. ;p

My god.. stop me before I spend more! *laughs*

got my third purple (sword and two JP purples, I'm not yet doing trollheroics).. and picked up some top of the line enchants, landslide for my sword, and peerless stats for my armor (I almost said Peerlass stats for my chest, which is another joke altogether.. it's the Azerothian Boob Job!), along with Dragonscale Leg Armor.. total cost, about 2.5K gold, leaving me under 1,000G

It's a good thing I've never been tempted to buy from a gold seller :)

Hello Everyone I play Horde and always have ever since I first started wow going on 6 years ago...the reason I play horde and stir away from Allie side is simple....the people, OR it used to be the people. See when I first started playing wow I tried out the Alliance side because I liked the races. But I quickly found that the majority of the people I played with on a couple of servers were juvenile and very childish even if they themselves were above the age of eighteen. Now I know some people from the Allie side that are very mature and I know my share of horde players that are down right children so by no means am I saying this is black and white like everything it is shades of grey.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way my theory as to why the Allie hate is simple....people still act more like children on the Allie side. At least that is still the face that is present 90% of the time and it is really a shame. A lot of the top end content on a lot of servers is downed first by Allie...now whether this is because they simply have more numbers (5 to 1 on my server) or if they are just better skilled I cannot say. I also think that a lot of people are trying to break the stereotypes about what is a hero and a lot of the older crowd want to play something a bit darker and grittier rather then something all clean and shiny like.

That is just my theories and personal view on it.

Edit: I forgot to add that The majority of my high end toons 80+ ar either Bloodelf or Undead....My Favorite being my Prot/Ret Blood Elf pally....who I have rped with since BC dropped and his Back story has him set up in a way that now a days seems all to common...He was a resurrected Death knight back before the Death-knight class ever existed on WoW. I Read some of the books and had the Pen and Paper rpg.....

Alliance Vs Horde Milkshake

*hums*
I can recall this video being banned or something *headtilts*

*actually has a Milkshake macro*

Recount - For Boys Brought To The Yard
1. My Milkshake 5 (5, 100%)
2. Your Milkshake 0 (0, 0%)

Alliance vs Horde My Humps

Anyway!

Yes, this was silly (or even /silly), but I just had to!

Doing AQ 40 as a duo is actually challenging!

I mean I'm sure it can be done if you have the right class/talent setup to tank and do damage to both emperors with only two people (maybe something like two paladins to slowly chip them down while healing themselves through the damage), but not in a manner that's convenient or practical for just walking in and doing it.

Twin Emperors.
My guild found out you need three players for that one, with one being a magic user. We used a DK, a paladin and a shadow priest (me). The hp back from the SP is enough to deal with the dmg dealt. On switch, you let the SP cast Shadow Word: Death to 'agro'.
We also found out it was better (easier) to let the SP tank the boss that is melee immune.

The slime boss really really needs a mage. We tried it with a shadow priest. Though Mind Spike is frost/ shadow damage, it's apparently not enough (the hell?)
