Something lovely. I really don't like the usual cliche, where one of them lies, then they argue, there's moping and doping and then, in the end they make up.
Edit: Wow, thank all of you for so many recommendations! ❤️
A year ago, Shadowkeep killed my love affair with Synthoceps. This once majestic looking exotic lost a bit of its flair because the veins stopped glowing and are now dull, lifeless. Please fix it.
Edit to add example pic, as it seems to not dawn on some as to how drastic this change was to one of the most used, and arguably better looking, exotics in the game. My original post was a bit tongue in cheek but on a serious note, how is this acceptable? And it's not just this one thing, it's many, but there have been posts galore on many of those topics, this is mine.
By someone in the “vein” of them, I mean the general popularity of them, based on the sales they have.
Also, how do advances work? What do you spend them on, and how does the paying it back to the publisher work? Thanks.
Gold sellers have found a new way to corner the Black Lotus market even with the changes a couple months ago. They now join a party with a couple hunters and their alt accounts/friends, spread across the zone and spam eagle eye to every spawn point in the map. Once they find a spawn they call it out and everyone rushes over to it. They can usually get any Lotus within 30 seconds of it spawning. They can check the entire zone in as little as 30 seconds (faster if they have more than 1 hunter).
It's so bad that they have even begun cross-faction colluding to attack anyone of the opposite faction from picking if they aren't in their militia. I've lost 3 Lotus in the last couple days because I will be halfway through the pick and get shot by a NE hunter while a Tauren hunter runs up and loots it without a problem. I called them out for obvious collusion last night and was greeted with 2 of them trying to camp me for over an hour. They clearly only play the game to farm gold so it was more... keep reading on reddit ➡
After a reread I really believe that Diamond Veins is better suited for Lindon than Yerin. He is the one constantly complaining about the strain on his madra channels due to Blackflame while Yerin stated that the strain on her madra channels are the same as any other sacred artists (normal levels of strain). I really hope that Will gives Lindon something similar in the next book because I believe it is something that could really boost Lindon's power level. It also feels like the only reason Yerin got Diamond Veins was so she could use 2 ultimate abilities in the final fight (Frosty and Final Sword).
Reading some of the submissions here of late reminded me of a company I worked for around 10 years ago.
I was an IT Tech, this company had factories in 3 corners of the UK (Southampton, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Belfast) as well as more factories and offices around the globe.
Being the IT base in Southampton, we'd quite regularly have to fly up to Newcastle, or over to Belfast to fix an issue or just for routine maintenance on their kit. Often the higher-up managers would be making the same journeys, so we'd arrange with their PA to share the taxi from the office to the airport, make sure we're on the same flight, then share the taxi at the other end to the factory there.
These were "Executive" taxis - long wheelbase BMW 7 Series and Merc S class usually. At the destination there'd be a man with a little sign for the Exec who grab his/her bags and take us to the car. All very nice.
If the visit required an overnight stay, they'd put us up in the same 4-star hotel as the Execs as it w... keep reading on reddit ➡

This is the story of the single worst conversation I’ve ever had in the doctors office.
I had the Contraceptive Implant at 17 because it was simple and effective.
Five years later I started gaining weight. I was depressed and had mood swings, and my periods are all over the place. Still, docs told me “it’s just hormones”, and continued to swap out the implant every two years or so.
Over the years I spoke with several doctors and a nurse. Eventually one suggested that prolonged usage of the implant is causing these issues, and I should get something else immediately. So I booked to chat with the specific nurse who does those talks.
I walk into the appointment, and we politely discuss what I’m there for. I have researched the coil, and think that could be a good fit, but she dismisses me immediately. The conversation as I roughly remember it:
“Honestly” she says, “most women find these things sort themselves out eventually when they have a baby.”
“That’s not in my immediate fut... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hi! I'm a cardiac surgery resident beginning my 2nd year in Germany. In my hospital we routinely use the saphenous vein. But from other colleagues in other hospitals I've heard that they use total arterial grafting, with double mamarias. And that they skeletonize the mammaria. In my hospital they harvest the artery with a pedicle attached throughout.
The fellows I've asked said the double IMA takes too much away from the arterial supply from the chest wall and increases the risk of deep sternal infections. While colleagues from other hospitals say whatever risk there is, is worth the off pump advantage and sparing the clamping of the aorta.
I'm going to read into it. But I thought I'd ask here and see generally if anyone is still using the saphenous vein, and if it's really outdated or still in practice.
EDIT: i should also mention: we do use double internal Mammarian arteries in some cases. but only when no other vein conduit is possible (in cases of bilateral Vein-Stripping and a... keep reading on reddit ➡
