Quick and the Dead Perk:

Increases health gained when resurrected by a guild member by 50% and increases movement speed while dead by 100%.


And in other news you probably don't care about, the new ZA & ZG are kinda fun. If you do find yourself back in WoW at all... definitely worth an hour or two to try them out.

4.2 comes out later this month. mmo-champion has all the infos.

(just a FYI... I'm only playing very, very casually)

Perhaps, however... perhaps we'll meet up again someday in Azeroth.

    I had the opportunity to raid Firelands last night. It's pretty awesome, in my opinion, it's crazy how huge it is! I pugged it with a guild whose name I can't remember. We cleared trash (oh so much trash...) and wiped on Shannox about 15 times before calling it quits, because by that time the trash respawned and we didn't want to wade through the trash again.

    Just pugging. I get the feeling Icrontic is done with WoW. The 4.2 content and storyline is good so far. I don't like that CC no longer causes aggro, though.

    Yeah that's the main reason I xfered. If you want to come to a horde server Scott I'm on one where people want to start raiding. Just lemme know one way or another. It'd be casual still but most likely more then 1 raid night. (probably 2)

    totally grinded myself out of WoW

    actually, any game that involves grinding is pretty much a turn off right now

    Yeah, I am not really playing much... Was thinking of possibly tranferring to the Reddit guild, if at all.

    I have not played in so long. Now I really feel like getting online again.

    GW2 Doesn't do much for me, I think I am interested in firing up the ol WOW account for the MoP.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Perry and Kyle started playing again. Perry is old enough now to actually know what he's doing, and he is geared up for raids, and Kyle is getting there quickly. Might want to contact him.

    Think I might go back to playing, GW2 really disappointed me.

    Think I might go back to playing, GW2 really disappointed me.

    Lots of people I know had this same sentiment when GW1 came out and I'm hearing it a lot more often among people who had high hopes for GW2. I never got into either one. Though, I have been thinking about getting back into WoW again...maybe.

  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout New Mexico Icrontian
    I still play WoW (as well as GW2 I'm loving both so far) and can help out with raids via the Real ID support if needed.
  • TheironhandTheironhand Centerline, Michigan Icrontian
    Is the Icrontic guild still active? If not we could always start a new one.
  • MAGICMAGIC Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian

    @hydrar would be the one to know. It was alliance side last i knew, and he was the last one playing.
  • MiracleManSMiracleManS Chambersburg, PA Icrontian
    I'm still playing on Tortheldrin hilariously.
  • Ok how do I stop getting emails. Delete all my comments?
  • MAGICMAGIC Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian
    Click on your pseudonym, edit your profile, notification settings.
  • and unless you're super bored I wouldn't get back into WoW magic. It's boring still, i cleared all the cata content and am done once my sub ends due to the game just being the same over and over. And you'll re-hit all the same problems you had the last time you tried to get the guild running, IMO.

    the only thing that keeps me interested in the game anymore is arena and trying to push rating, but i would raid if i ever found a guild i liked and that would stay active, i miss raiding icc with Icrontic (even though i was god awful back then). GW2 disappointed me tremendously as well.

    I just started playing again on Tortheldrin, horde. Leveling from scratch. I've always enjoyed starting from 1.
  • FearmyblinkFearmyblink California Member
    i didn't even know people played on Tortheldrin still, seemed so dead when i transferred off of it. I actually currently have 85s on like 4 different battlegroups for arenas and to play with friends.

    Update. Guild is now level 19 (of 25)! Katie and I have been playing lately. Guild bank is growing now that 10% of our loot goes into the bank!

    I leveled Hydrar up to 90 and have been running heroic 5-mans/raids. Katie leveled up a panda monk.

    I have to admit... it's been really fun. Even without a guildmates :( . Pandaria - quests and instances are very cool. Much of a zone and an entire 5-man dedicated to beer brewing.

    Things I like:

    * 5-mans and raids have much less trash in them. Most heroics take 20 mins. 3-4 bosses each. Mechanics are fun.
    * LFR - "Looking for raid" creates 25man raids much like dungeon finder does. It works surprisingly well. Tuned down a bit from real raids, and so is the gear, but still a good experience so far. Plus you can check out raid mechanics without being in a dedicated raiding group. Raids divided into 2-3 parts for LFG... 3 bosses per. Each part is about 45 mins long. Loot is issued automatically (game rolls for you - 86 and up you get loot, otherwise bag of gold).
    * Scenarios - these are 3-man instances where you and 2 others (typically all 3 are DPS spec) run through key storyline events and battles. Awards valor/gold/items.
    * World bosses
    * Pet Battles - embarrassingly fun. Turn-based combat using pets/critters, each with special abilities, strengths, weaknesses. Cross-realm competition and match-ups.
    * Simplified talent system. Each spec comes with certain abilities, and every 15 levels you choose a key talent.
    * Leveling is pretty quick 1-80. I think Katie burned through Outlands in 1.5 zones. We did 80-85 in 2 zones. 85-90 takes 3-4 Pandaria zones.
    * 5.2 Throne of Thunder patch brought in a new island with interesting mechanics and storyline, including a solo instance where you just run around picking up treasure while avoiding traps (key to instance is rare, works weekly). The server-wide effort opens up stages. Our server is almost to stage 4 of 6.

    Things I don't like:

    * Never liked the idea of Pandas, but it's not too bad. Monks can be tanks/healers/dps. Many races can be monks.
    * Tillers / farming. You can now plant seeds, care for crops, harvest items for cooking, etc. I'm sure some folks would love this, not for me. Crops take 18 real-life hours to grow, I think.
    * Black Market Auction House - rare items from raids, trading card game, etc. put up for auction by the game for lots of gold. Essentially a gold sink, but I don't like anyone having access to certain rare items.

  • MAGICMAGIC Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian
    Damn, I think I'll come back and try it out again. What server faction were we on?
  • HydrarHydrar Columbia, MD Member
    Kel'Thezud, Alliance.

    Fine. Dicks. Giving it a shot.

    Well, there is a monkey boss that threatens to "Ook you in the dooker" (debuff: ooked in the dook"

    And afterwards... Dozens of monkeys do a dance.

    There is a free 10 day Pandara trail that I may have just activated.
  • MAGICMAGIC Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian
    I'll fire it up tonight.

    dammit shit
  • AnnesAnnes Tripped Up by Libidos and Hubris Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Eli and I are in, but won't be on until late tonight. We're going to a Shanty Sing. Oh yes, you read that correctly.

    So, I guess I should play some tonight. I moved all my characters though :(
  • HydrarHydrar Columbia, MD Member
    You can do cross-realm dungeons and raiding. Lots of zones are cross-realm too.
  • JBoogalooJBoogaloo This too shall pass... Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    I may give it a shot in the next coming days as my class is winding down (thankfully). Gotta start from scracth again, lol. Funny, this will be my first alliance character, hehe.
  • TiberiusLazarusTiberiusLazarus Dewmander Misery Icrontian
    Oh god. What have I started?
  • TiberiusLazarusTiberiusLazarus Dewmander Misery Icrontian
    Also, if you want to get in on the Panda stuff, you can get a 10 day trial of Pandaria instead of the 7 day trial of Cata. From your battle.net account page, click on World of Warcraft, then on the right should be a link to start the trial.
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    Well crap, if people are starting this up again. I had fun with WoW, but stopped as the IC Guild fizzled.
  • FearmyblinkFearmyblink California Member
    I've been thinking about the good times in WotLK recently and how i missed that time in wow, I have 2 90s but I haven't been playing much recently but I would be down to get into the game again. I can start a new character or transfer one to KT.
  • TiberiusLazarusTiberiusLazarus Dewmander Misery Icrontian
    I think some of us are looking at starting new chars.

    The bit of time I've spent so far I was actually fairly overwhelmed by the 'simplifications' they've done. A lot of the things I was used to seem to be gone now.
  • HydrarHydrar Columbia, MD Member
    I think Katie went from 1-80 in 30h played, straight questing.

    Talent trees are the biggest change/simplification. A few minutes checking out MMO-champions or EJ would be beneficial.

    How do I get the Free Trial of Panderia? I only see a 10 Day Trial for Cataclysm when I click on WoW in my Battle.net account. Also, Damnit!!
