3rd Kara run and stuff

Not much fun time happening on my main char. I mostly farm a bit. I discovered that we completely kick ass in AV on this battlegroup (3600 honor in 1.5 hours). That's...just insane.

ANyway actually i'm pretty bored of the BM hunter, i've gotten to the point where there isn't a point trying to get pre-raid gear, because its not a upgrade. And of course all we do is kara and that's once a week. So, maybe i'll spec surv. Right now i'm mostly content to do kara. But that being said, my gear sucks. Somehow. Completely epic, yet sucks. 25% crit, yes hit capped, but 1500AP. You can get 1500AP, 22% crit (not hitcapped) without stepping foot in kara. So i got...3% crit for those months of raiding. Yeah idk, i never seem to get shit, or if i do its not an upgrade.

Last week there were some boots i wanted. I thoguht about it for a few seconds, too long because by the time I said i wanted it it was already sharded. This week, a raid member ninja'd a ring i could have used (really wanted) (they were confused by the stupid loot policy and apologized), and another piece was accidently looted by another member. I ended up *finally* getting the T4 token off curator, and a POS belt (15 mana/5, some AP). The famed [Belt of the Tracker]. I mean, really, a) what was I thinking (probably, hey its mail and i have 5 secs before disenchant). b) why is this purple? It should be green). Anyway, i'm getting 1-2 pieces every week there (well except last week), but these things aren't really upgrades. I got cloak which is just utter crap for PvE but great for PVP, i got a side-grade gloves (the T4 ones)...the kara loot is so underwealming, and there are quite a few sidegrades. There is a great loot table here. I must have done kara dozens of times (but only 3 full clears), and have seen only half of this stuff, and only got a few of the pieces. What's interesting is that there seems to be some gear that's high for mana/5 and some gear that's straight up agi+, and some gear that is all AP and crit. So there is some itemization available. But yeah, it seems like it would take half a year to get all the loot you'd want from kara. For example, never seen sunfury drop (did prince say 6 times). Seen WSR drop from wolf precisely once.

Anyway. Kara last night. MT was 30 minutes later than all of us. Its very unclear when raid start time is, either 7 or 7:30. I showed at 7 the first two times and we were pulling trash a few minutes later. This time, everyone was there at 7, but MT was there at 7:30. No biggie. We had a new bear tanking for some reason. He's a new guy. Never even done kara. How the hell did we end up with him, we must have been desparate for recruits (guess we are). Anyway, so off he goes to MT most of kara. Did a good job, i must say, but had no clue on the bosses (understandable). Vent didn't work so well with him, his headset must be crappy. Was real good about not being a loot whore, even though he probably really needed it.

Anyway, me me me. What did I do. Jack shit. I stayed quiet, I dpsed, and I didn't fuck up. That's what dpsers do. The only time people know of our existence is when we fuck up. My dps was neck and neck with the other two guys, a mage and my friend the rogue. So we should be happy. But i think i can blow their socks off if properly geared. Right now i think i'm all fucked up with not enough AP and agi. Well, if i mess up, i should be dead. When did i die? The valets up to Opera, i almost always die there because i'm always #2 on threat, and they one-shot mail wearing 10k health guys. Ran past the raid and into a arcane protector after curator. Woops. FD, pet gets it. no biggie. Died after Prince, some random aggro shit, i don't even know. Died on nightbane due to rain of bones and some bad hits. We later wiped (secretly i was happy), and we two-shotted his ass. See, hunter lives, we win. Hunter dies, we die. But yeah, i'm happy that i'm the only hunter in the raid, all the mail is mine. None of those damn shammies either, so naturally all mail is healing gear.

Hopefully things will pick up in a few weeks, but right now ZA isn't likely since they only want the 'good' crew there, and 25mans don't look especially promising, although we are getting a ton of ppl coming in, like 1-2 a week (mostly dps and tanks). Anyway i'm just as happy keeping the main on backburner while i level my lock and druid.
