Freelance Ramblings / DKP cost suggestion
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:39:33 PM »
As most of you know, the recent change in the minimum DKP cost for items from 10 to 50 had a side effect: many items that might have earned bids of 10 or 20, or been rolled on, went to FFA.  This is because many older items are simply not worth 50 DKP.  Last night's change that made FFA items cost 50 DKP was an attempt to remedy this effect, but not the root cause.  Now, items that might have been looted FFA will rot, because they're still not worth 50 DKP.  Rotting loot does not benefit anyone.  It doesn't increase the power of the raid force, nor does it earn DKP for raiders.  I believe the initial change to raise the minimum to 50 DKP was to speed up bidding.  This is fine, but if you don't like the side effects, let's fix the root cause.  I propose that tier 3 RoF loot have a minimum cost of 10 DKP, tier 4 RoF have a minimum of 20, and tier 1 CotF loot have a minimum of 50.  As newer content comes out, these values will be adjusted, just like we currently do when shifting older content from the DKP loot method to the random loot method.  This will speed up bidding while still allowing a fair value for older items.

Freelance Ramblings / Threshold minis

Will tonight be the only time we do the Threshold mini bosses?  I hope not, because I'd really like to complete HoF and  get a new title, but I'll take a wife faction hit if I raid tonight.  We have more than 54 regular raiders, so we should do these events 3 or 4 times to make sure everyone gets a shot at them.

Freelance Ramblings / 90 Alaran for raids
« on: October 15, 2012, 09:31:28 PM »
Which raids require 90 Alaran?  What happens if you don't have it?  Do you note see the emotes at all, or do you just get somewhat garbled versions that won't get picked up by GTT and other audio trigger tools?

DEBUFFS Demystified / Blessing vs. Grasp of Ro
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:37:09 AM »
The druid section on the debuffs post says to use the Blessing of Ro AA.  The Grasp of Ro spell does much the same thing, but it debuffs more than Blessing does.  Take a look at for the numbers.  My druid isn't 90 yet, so I'm not sure exactly how stacking works with Grasp.  With Blessing, you get the best result if you cast Hand of Ro and Fixation of Ro first.  Then cast Blessing.  Blessing will overwrite whichever of the other two debuffs is in the lower slot, but the other one will stay.  If you cast Blessing first, neither of the other two will stick.
