I think I'm still using a level 30 requirement thing somewhere.

Now I'm a mage, so I imagine the things I should be improving are Intellect, Spirit, and spell power more than anything, but it doesn't feel like I've ever been in need of anything more than what I've gotten. Is it worth it to try and keep up with gear as I level or just wait until tougher instances start opening up?
Don't know if you got BC or not, but your entire gearset will be replaced within about thirty minutes of being in Outland. The same goes for Northrend.

If you were in BC and managed to T5, your gear won't be replaced until you're like 75ish.

Although Karazhan is the easiest and most favorite of all Burning Crusade raids, the way the game was designed made it a difficult one to complete. Our guild spent nearly 3 months working on before we were able to fully clear it. It's not that big of a deal if you weren't able to clear Karazhan.

Yeah, by the end of the event, I had two black dresses, nine bags, three picnic baskets, and four total Horde Gift Collections.

This was a really easy achievement to get, assuming you had time to play.

I ran OS-10, Vault-10, VH, HoL, and UK today. I can just about afford Sundial of the Exiled, which is the 2nd best Trinket for spellcasters behind Dying Curse, which I was fortunate to roll high on during my first and only Naxx-25.

17 bars in 4 hours at 77. Could have done it faster, but i wasted time buying mats for a blue set and doing an instance. I have a full blue boe set ready for level 78.

Edit: most of that total time played is due to leaving my game on and botting at level 70.

I just got WotLK today WEWT! I'm going to try and lvl as fast as I can (which is unusal for me since usually I lvl slow to enjoy all the content), but My guild has almost cleared Naxx and I wanna be 80 before they do. We're quickly becoming a top ranking raid guild on Ghostlands.

@Izzy

That's an intresting bartender 4 set up. Mine is completely different (and this may be because I'm a hunter) I have three bars in the bottom left hand corner. 1st is for shots and shot spells, 2nd is for melee abilites (Raptor strike, wing clip, feign death, disengage, etc.) Flare, auto-shot, and rapid fire. 3rd is for pet abilites (Beastial wrath, kill command, etc), Scare beast and trinket abilites. I have a bar next to the 3rd bar that is my pet bar (mend pet, revive pet, call pet, etc), eyes of the beast and eagle eye. Then I have my bags, micro menu under that. On the middle right I have my tracking abilites, food, hearth, drink, and professions. And on the left middle I have aspects. And lastly there is a bar above the chat box with traps

I like to keep my buttons spaced out in sections. The main bar is still right in the center, with cooldowns every other space in the bar above it (like .:.:.:.:.:.). Then I have a full space between each elemental section for each totem type (like :: :: ::: ::: ), and then there are two vertical bars on the right side. Buffs, rarely-used skills, and non-combat skills are stacked in two bars under the chat. The vertical columns store my professions and mounts, and it is where I put temporary quest items.

I thought this style would only work with Shaman, but a lot of other classes (maybe all of them?) have buffs that "can only have one at a time", like Hunter Aspects or Paladin Auras. I space them all out so when I'm buffing, I just pick one from each section.

I'm working on binding all my stuff to keys, it's just that I don't want to figure out how to set up bartender so that it's not a huge block.

I may have to get a mod for bars just for my shaman. I had no problem placing skills on the bars for my priest. Hell, I have so many free spots, I put toys and other trinkets I have on there so I don't have to go through the hassle of going into my bags to use them.

My warrior was a bit iffy because he almost filled every single possible spot on the bar. However, I managed to fit everything I normally used on the regular interface.

My shaman however. He's not 60 yet and both my right side bars are filled with totems and the bottom bars are filled with all my healing and damage spell. I know between where he's currently at and 80, he will get a ton of new spells to use, so I'll definitely need more bars.

Thaddius?

I think my best is 8500 (without a buff for damage increase from the bosses like curator.)

Sadly I couldn't see my damage during Thaddius as I was too busy not dying, and the achievements thing does not record it since my highest damage is 250,000 from some siege quest, so the best I can go off of for comparative purposes is a 12k crit I just got in a 5-man pug at VH.

Ran OS and got my t7.5 gloves, but they suck. Blizz screwed up the stats for our t7 and t7.5 gloves, and from what I've read, we've been screwed on gloves for almost every tier. Ran Vault and got the chest, but I gave it to someone else because I don't PVP and I already had the t7 chest, which he did not. And he actually PVPd, so he deserved it.

Bought the new trinket as mentioned earlier and it's now a bonus of ~1,400 spellpower if they both proc at the same time. That's a little less than double my base SP.

And in that run I got 12k on, I did more DPS than #2 and #3 combined: a rogue and a mage. In the 25-man OS, I got 2nd to a Mage. In the 25-man Vault, I got fourth.

It's a good thing I got recount yesterday. It's a fun little tool.

Lately I'm pulling 2800-3200 DPS in raids, even with my crappy gear which should get better when I run another Naxx-25 tomorrow. It feels good to have PUGs for VoA constantly whispering me saying "dude your dps is sick bro".

oh and best crit i've had was last week in 10-man voa which was a 12879 envenom
