So they kick me off of a server that's running fine with rolling shutdowns/restarts "in order to address performance issues" and the server I get afterwards is the laggiest piece of crap I've ever seen? What'd they do? Change their bandwidth provider to Geocities??????

Slowly gaining ground, picked up one of the barb set weapons that pumped me up over 40K damage without having to sacrifice much (it has LoK as opposed to LoH, but I'm still pumping out over 1K LoH so I'm ok). None of my kit is really worth anything though as they're all missing at least one key component to push them into something I could get more than 200KG for. :)

Hey Sagath, sorry I couldn't help carry you guys through ubers last night.
Spent as much time picking your wiz buddy off the ground as I did attacking Kulle, which probably didn't help things when it came to the enrage timer.
I would have switched to my CM wiz to lock them down, but then I don't think we would have had enough DPS to do any damage.

What spec is your buddy running? Seemed to be a mash up of a couple of different builds.
Take a peek at my wiz if you like for the kind of gear/skills he should be looking at if he wants to go CM/WW lockdown.

if you are ok with surviving/solo-ing ubers, people who die in the uber fight can leave the game (but stay in party), and as long as they re-join before you finish the uber fight, they'll still get the organ. This way, the ubers health scales down with less players actually in the game.

I was able to carry (although a bit stressful) with my monk on MP10 ubers on stream the other night...

I don't think I am going to play this game again until there is something other than grinding to do. I made my friends money back and was still able to keep my gear so I guess I find that I really have no reason to play until I can get some PvP in.

Doing the sweeping wind trick I assume?
I refuse to take advantage of game mechanics like that.

How can someone who has left rejoin the fight? I thought they couldn't get thru the portal.

after playing 650 hours on a squishy DH, its a very nice change in pace for me to face roll MP10 as a monk.. LOL. And technically, all monks make use of the mechanic on some level.

But the person who left the game mid-uber fight (so they have to at least maybe do some damage? not sure if they need to or not, but always good to be sure), but as long as they re-enter the game before you kill the uber, they will get the drop. They can flag to you after you killed the uber. So they can wait in town till you are done. Another thing to note is, if they are out of the game, but still in the party, their 5NV stack timer is paused.
