We need a thread for everyone to brag about their stupid epics, or talk about the latest nerf to Rogues and Paladins. This is that thread. Every other thread winds down into general discussion, so here we are.

I'll get the ball rolling by saying:

GENERAL RAJAXX IS A FUCKING GAY ASSHOLE
PROPHET SKERAM IS A WIMPY GAY ASSHOLE
RAGNAROS IS A FLOPPY EPIC PINATA
MY ROGUE KICKS YOUR DAD'S ASS


Go.

I've come to the conclusion that the economy on Shattered Hand is the most horrid blasphemy of an MMO economy that has ever existed or will exist in the future.

You can tell the marketplace is dominated by thousands of 60s and five times the number of twinks, because EVERYTHING is expensive as all hell.  I haven't completely tested my "twinks are fucking up everything" theory, but here's an example for comparison's sake:

As a budding herbalist, at just enough skill to harvest briarthorn regularly, I was able to gather a stack of swiftthistle and sell it for fifteen gold.  Easily.  It was gone nearly as soon as I put it up.  That sounds like it would be awesome at first, but every single other item on the AH is priced just as high, if not higher.  It's no trouble for someone to buy expensive shit for their alt, but it sucks for those of us just starting out.

Compare that to the character I started last night on Dark Iron.  I took a look on the AH there, and prices were far more rational.  Stacks of swiftthorn were going on an average of three to four gold.  Everything was far cheaper, far more...normal. :P  I'm gonna hop on Shadowsong tonight to do another comparison, but so far I can only conclude that Shattered Hand's economy is on the verge of being broken for a new player.

So yeah, that's what I've been doing mainly:  bitching about money to anyone who will listen. :P

I got Dragonstalker's Helm from Ony along with my Ancient Petrified Leaf from Majordomo, so I'm working on killing the 4 demons for my epic bow.  Downed the one in Burning Steppes on my second or third try, I would've had him down easier if some fucktard Horde Rogue hadn't run up and attacked the demon making him despawn.  Waste of 3 hours that night was.

Going to down the Un'goro Demon once the servers come back up, shouldn't be a problem, probably the easiest of the 4 demons.  Next up is Silithus, the hardest imo and then I'll finish it off with the Winterspring demon.  Hopefully all this will be done by Friday.

I just came to the realization a few days ago that I hate one thing above all else in MMOs....game economy. Get this:

I'm farming all kinds of leather right now for some cash. I put five stacks of light leather up on the auction house for like 30s a stack. I get a tell from a dude saying thanks, I reply "no prob dude." And off I go....i check back a little later in the day and the fucker who bought it HAS FIVE STACKS OF LIGHT LEATHER IN THE AH FOR ONE GOLD A FUCKING PIECE. And guess what? The way things are going I would not be surprised if he fucking bought them.

Fuck this economy in WoW. Who the fuck sells a DEMON BAND http://www.thottbot.com/?i=3604 FOR 20g?

Yay bitching thread!. Recently I switched mains from Rogue to Warrior, reason being that Rogues are over populated, mostly by teenage arseholes who couldn't hold a conversation with Paris Hilton let alone play their class right. So, yeah Warrior, recently acquired:

Helm of Might
Bracers of Might
Guantlets of Might
Medallion of steadfast Might
Belt of Wrath
Claw of the blake Drake
Drillborer Disk.

But... I'm sick shit of WoW atm, until the next patch atleast, reason being is it feels like a second job currently with all the god damn raiding we do. mon-fri BWL and MC from 18:00 - 23:00 Sat and Sun AQ from 16:00 - 23:00... got damnit I like to play games when I feel like it, nothing worse when you feel cornered into playing a game even though you just wanna chill and watch some T.V.

Ofc, if I dont go it means I loose my raid spot for every other event, so yeah basically sevens nights a week stuck in some elites face spamming sunder armour.... LALALA great fun!

Items around levels 17-19 and 27-29, especially rings and necklaces, are big on the PvP twinks who play characters that do nothing but PvP all day and all night.  My dad has over 500g just by buying Falcon's Hooks at 2g or less and selling them for 7-10g.

I have another Nyx run tomorrow.  Hoping for the Bloodfang Hood - I have the most DKP of any Rogue for headpieces, so it's mine if it drops!

My guild's going through a bit of drama right now over some kid getting mad about comments from other guild members about him.  I thought horde didn't have drama. :(  We also finally split from the alliance we were using, meaning we're just a plain old endgame raid instance accomplished guild, but without the elitist faggotry of specifically targeted endgame raid instance guilds.  I'm kind of happy about it, didn't really like the guys we were allying with (such as a crappy warrior tank who insisted druids can't tank, etc.)...

Oh, and nerf paladins. :p

I am immensely amused at all the droods who think the class will be worthless after 1.10.

Anyways, just some random comments from someone who isn't playing the game at the moment but still follow the events way too closely.  I hate this game. :p

Having spent QUITE a bit of time PVPing and playing with some of the best-geared Pallies on the server (including one with Ashkandi and full judgement, and one with Thunderfury), I can safely say that paladins are not underpowered like everyone wants to believe. Hell fucking no. When I see a JoC crit for like 1500 after a 1300+ SoC Crit and a similar white-damage crit done on a regular basis, that's massive. The boosts to Righteousness will help mitigate some of the 'randomness' factor to their damage in PVP too? I dunno.

But I've never seen Zetapaladin lose to any-fucking-thing one on one, EVER :P

To be honest with ya, the economy on Shattered Hand is so perfect right now. Why? Because your gear at 25 means absolutely nothing since you'll replace it in a week. Your gear at 55? Far more important and since most people keep their twinks at 19-29, the items at levels 45-60 are relatively cheap. What does that mean? You can easily farm with your level 60 in Gnomeregan or Scarlet monestary and make good pocket.

I really don't see the point in buying all the best stuff at level 25 if you plan on leveling all the way.

As for accomplishments...

I'm 7/8 Nightslater now.
I have Bloodfang hood and belt.
I have onyxia Scale Pendent.
Cloak of the Shrouded Mist.
Claw of the Black Drake.
Vis'Kag.
Brutality Blade.
Strikers Mark.
Maelstrom and Heroism Cards.
And the set rings from ZG.
I'm 3 slots away from being geared in epics.

I'm looking to get the Nightslayer boots and the Bloodfang Boots. I'm pretty sure I'll get them next time they drop. I also want the Bloodfang Shoulders because they look sick on Night Elf females.

As for rings, I'm thinking Don Julio's and Quick Strike.

My guild is up to the last boss of AQ20, but best we've done is 19%. Haven't tried AQ40 yet because we want to finish BWL first. Only Nef to go.

Anyway, sounds like people are about ready to leave Shattered Hand, kinda makes me sad, but you play the game for fun and if you're not having fun on Shattered Hand, moving to another server only makes sense.
