ICC Post 4.0
LOL Bug #1: if for some reason you can’t see Gunship, don’t just keep walking assuming it’s a graphics glitch even if everyone else is safely on the boat. You will fall and die…just ask our tankadin Solt.
LOL Bug #2: Icy blasts and other important Things On Ground To Not Stand in on Sindy’s platform are well nigh impossible to see. While you can see Sindy’s blasts of icy doom via the swirls (not the circles on the ground, oh no, but the swirls), whatever the little dragons cast is currently invisible. I apparently died by standing in 3 of them. Okay!
Which brings me to…
LOL Bug #3: A lot of people are having a hell of a time getting their buffs/debuffs to reappear, even after ditching whatever buff addon they were using. I wish I could tell you how I fixed mine, but really all I did was flail at settings in Interface and then relog and they magically reappeared. Relogging is the magic fix for a lot of things right now. Let me tell you, not seeing buffs and debuffs made Sindy fun.

We started late and still killed Sindy. ICC on normal mode, at least, is now /faceroll. I’d say that it’ a fairly “safe” place to play around on alts-that-might-be-new-mains.
On BM Hunters, In Particular
I did not particularly enjoy huntering last night. Of course I’m not going to give up on BM hunters that easily, but for now at least I’m going to be focusing on bringing up some other alts…just in case.
I don’t like focus. It’s seriously disrupted the flow that huntering has been for the past 5+ years. I’m going to give myself time to adjust, but initial impression is one of BLARGH FUCK THIS.
It’s hard to judge DPS while we’re missing key things (o hai, level 81 skills) but I was lagging massively behind everyone else.
I passionately hate being terrible at something. Right now, I feel terrible at huntering, and it’s twice as frustrating since I used to be good at it.
Serpent Sting needs to last longer. I feel that with its current duration, it’s obnoxious to keep reapplying. Or maybe I just can’t cope with a focus restrained shot priority, I don’t know. It always seems like there’s one more shot I need to get in RIGHT NOW and I can’t because I have to steady shot for more focus and then kill command comes up and then oh god where did my focus go and fuck how long as serpent sting been down?
I miss my pew pew moonfire kitty. The heal seems like a lackluster (and far less useful) replacement for a pet skill I used to enjoy based on looks alone.
