Hate how most of the gear I need is in UBRS. Warrior is so overpopulated that you mostly need to tank, which is fine but in UBRS you still roll against like 4-5 people.

I've done around 25 UBRS clears and seen the truestrike shoulders once and two Rend offhands. Must be punishment for getting the Savage Gladiator Chain in my thrid brd run.
3rd BRD run?!
You deserve 25 more for that kind of filthy luck.

got a 2236 crit at level 50 last night. It was Execute though I didn’t think I had that much rage but the numbers just rolled right for me. I’m coming ONLINE

There's something satusfying about big crits, even as a healer. I'm genuinely disappointed MSBT doesn't let me scale the crit font so that it fills the screen.

Killed Ragnaros, and i think it's all i needed to do before stopping WoW Classic. It was a cool nostalgia journey for me.

Do Jed/Rend runs with 7 people.

Third brd run? Jeez. For my guild MT it took 250 runs before he got it.

Guys, when I first saw Sulfuras as a feral druid in TBC wandering around Stormwind I knew I had to have it somehow. Of course it wasn't top tier at the point and I was a fresh-face scrub so I never really pursued it or really knew anything beyond that feral druids at the time often used 2h maces (and it looked awesome). The weapon has always been there in the back of my mind though. Now, over a decade later, I'm nearing 60 on my warrior. Can I realize this dream of wielding ultimate power?

Unless you create your own raiding guild? Highly unlikely. Every single warrior, Paladin/shaman will resent you for eternity. However, if you are really keen, you can basically raid forever with your guild until enough eyes drop that you can have it. Sulfuras gets outclassed by quite a few weapons later on (although it remains insane).

So yeah, never say never but it will likely be a long row to hoe.

No no no I was a feral druid when I saw it back in '07 and it made an impression on my newbie brain. In Classic I'm a warrior which is why I feel this is my chance to fulfill that dream.

Holy fuck I’m blind and tired at work. The answer is yes absolutely. If you really make sure your guild knows you want it, people will likely move aside to let you get it. Also, once BWL drops and Ashkandi, CTS, Maladath and Drake Talon Cleaver are available (in addition to OEB and Bonereaver) it will be even easier to say to people “you take those, I want this”.

If I were you, I would focus on getting pre raid gear and working on an epic mount first though. You can always get an eye and sit on it, no reason to start buying mats to have them rot in your bank.

I got a lot on my to-do list then lol. First, find a raiding guild!

Also I need to find a way to balance really wanting to PvP, wanting to tank, DPS, and get this mace without dual spec....

Almost 60. Somehow getting more addicted over time. It's such a fucking good game, even as I hate it at times :D
It's just such a good time. I think it's been 100% proven that the love for old WoW is not nostalgia but that it is a timeless game, one of the greatest and entirely deserving of the term 'Classic'.

Did mc except rag last weekend for the first time ever, it's really fun but something about having to get a lot of people and a certain amount of each class, and if someone makes a small mistake it's usually a wipe, and then on top of that there's a good chance you don't get any loot, isn't the funnest end game stuff. BC was sweet because most raids were 25 man, a lot less tedious for sure.

The game is a lot better at 60, leveling can be fun but super tedious in classic.
It’s funny to me how much of what you do has absolutely no bearing on what people consider “the fun part,” ie endgame. So when someone ninjas some BoP loot in one of the early dungeons, I don’t even react. It’s like I’d have replaced that item at least three times before 60 anyway, and it’s hardly slowed me down so I honestly don’t care.

not that I’d ninja from anyone and use this as my reasoning; I just don’t bother getting mad when it happens cos I know most things before level 50 have absolutely zero bearing on raiding at the end.

obviously sought-after BoEs are a different story, cos there’s money to be made if nobody plans on actually using it.

It's not a great warrior weapon so a lot of guilds usually give shamans/paladins priority on it. But if you're an officer or gm of a raiding guild you can use your influence to get it anyway or you can find a guild where they let everyone roll on it as pvp gear.
It's definitely possible, there's already an alliance warrior on my server with it.

Guild dragged me into DM West last night (level 56 priest and wasn't really prepared for it). Pretty much every boss item that dropped was useless to the group or cloth healing gear.

Game really wants me to switch to holy (and I'm open to it now, although it'll make questing tough for the last few levels).

sixtyupgrades.com doesn't seem to include DM yet. :(

Onyxia and Ragnaros down, no loot for me. Onyxia was a slightly organized pug and for MC I tagged along with a guild that brought around 25 of their own people. It was fun but I don't see myself doing MC every week.

Playing at 60 is ok, but if I could just keep leveling forever I would never stop playing this game.

You need to go to the edit page for your set and change what phase it's for. There's phase 1.5 for Dire Maul stuff.

I loved leveling back in the day in late burning crusade and wrath, but in classic it just wears out its welcome. It's nice visiting zones and doing dungeons I never did before. The part that sucks is how long it takes to level up, and how much backtracking there is.

It's just a dream. I'm not even level 60 yet so it will take some time.
