Re: Pipewrench IQT Progress

Wrench - Awesome job completing IQT! Don't worry about feeling overwhelmed...we were all there at one time and frankly there are still times it can happen. It all comes down to repeated experience and practice; there's a reason these guys train like they do in RL. :)

Welcome to the Gamblers!
