Moar M'uru

We spent about 3 hours on M'uru last night before the DC's became too numerous.  Something was going on with the server since reports from other instances indicated the same situation.  No matter how much of an aggro lead you have, it's tough to tank 4-5 mobs while offline.
With the Evil Wind Chime of Doom and Mass Destruction not giving us much slack, a number of people started the BT chant.  It's like somehow clearing farm content will give us that couple of extra pieces of gear to put us over the top.  If I only had Illidan's trinket, SWP would be easy.
The beta is out but I don't know anyone that's opt'd in and gotten an email invite.  We registered 4 accounts and got a bonus opt in when we purchased the account tokens but none have panned out.  On the bright side a blue post has said the beta keys from BlizzCon will work for WotLK... sorta.  We just sign up in another queue and as of this morning there's still no beta email.  It's ok, though.  I have plenty to do on my current character, tbh.
One of the Alliance guilds on our server picked up the Ammy of Uber Healing if You're a JC'er.  They offered to trade it to us for some engineering patterns.  One of our healadins was beside herself with glee since it's been 2 months since we've seen the pattern drop.  Unfortunately the guild changed its mind and now wants 6.5k gold for the pattern instead.  That's a lot of gold for something that could drop for us anytime.

Shadow Council was having pretty serious lag issues, too, from around 9 to 10, as I recall.

That's an interesting "deal" those Alliance dogs have cooked up. It is so unfortunate they know so little about diplomacy, though it should come as no surprise. After all, they were too busy quibbling amongst themselves to see the true threat looming on their front door with Kel'thuzad and his Cult of the Damned preparing the plague. =P

Why so much money? Are they not in the same boat as you are, with money basically flowing freely from badge liquidation?

That's a good question. So I looked up their progression. They're 4th on the server and have downed Kalecgos. So they're in the same boat as us, probably better since they are most likely still farming BT/MH every week. We've sold patterns, too, don't get me wrong. But they were things like holy priest engineering goggles. I'm surprised one of those even exists.

Update on our rankings. Ascent is 344th in the US, 769 World (out of 83,025), 1st on Scarlet Crusade. We just have to figure out a way to get past 65% on M'uru. :(
