Congrats bro, I remember the first time kill Rags... fun stuffs. Kinda makes me realize how far our guild has come (we cleared all of BWL, Domo/Rags, and Onyxia last night). :)

so why do posts like this stay open but posts about legitimate questions on regular software like Excel, Outlook, etc. get locked for being in the wrong forum?
Because this isn't a question about a piece of software, this is a bragging thread about a personal "accomplishment."

So yeah, I'd agree with you if he asked how to get WoW working with a piece of hardware, or how to change settings, etc, but it's not anything like that.

Leggings of Transcendence?

That sounds so abso-fvcking-lutely ridiculous. What kind of retarded-ass name is that? So glad I never touched that game, ugh.

Speaking of Hogger- have you seen the vid of the 40-man raid full of lvl 1 gnomes that go and take down hogger? They come so close to getting owned, but pull it out in the end. It must've been their 1337 stratz.

About a year ago I joined a serious guild and enjoyed MC runs. But BWL was just so boring and tedious, it eventually broke my will. No idea who half the bosses are that people are mentioning in this thread, must be in the new silithus area.

Coming from someone who not only named their 3-year-old home PC "The E-Comp," but felt the need to list it's "stats" in his sig. :laugh:

Your guild probably just blew... you should have just applied to one with 1337 strats.

Because of the comedy in nerds calling other nerds "nerds" :D

My guild just killed him for the first time as well, and I got my legs as well (Ten Storms). It's nothing special these days, but it was a big accomplishment for me because I had quit the game for a long time, then when I returned, played a different character to exactly this point (first rag kill) before shelving him for various reasons in favor of my shaman.

*decides it's the wrong day to start pathetically narcissistic self-congratulatory thread about rescuing the princess from Bowser*

Considering you felt the need to make 2 consecutive posts in a thread you claim to not care about, I'd say it's pretty apparent who the real "loser" here is.


Not to mention having your BF2 stats in your sig - :laugh:

1) Congrats whatever the heck it is (from other people's post, WoW).

2) It sounds like it's a relatively major accomplishment. Regardless of whether some other guild did it first, it doesn't mean it is a trivial task. I remember way back in the day before Sony seriously screwed up EQ1 when we first went to places like Temple of Veeshan, it was a pretty big deal for us. Sure, there were already two or three guilds ahead of us, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't a big ccomplishment to us.

3) People need to stop with the insults. The guy plays a game, most of us do. The very fact that we're on the AT forums pretty much automatically gets us a lifetime membership to the nerds'r'us club.

But, but, but.. you're a bigger nerd than I am. :laugh:
