"I had a similar problem with my Logitech mouse. ........"
I had the same problem where i couldn't get the back button on my Logitech mouse to register as a key in WoW.
It was only after I went into the Logitech control software for the mouse and UN-ticked the 'recognise game settings' control that I could configure the mouse properly (without having to resort to the F10 etc shortcut you did).
It seemed counter-intuitive but turning the game settings off made the mouse work properly in game.

Dec 17th 2008 4:07PM re: ret pally burst dPS
I don't even have time to do more than hit my PvP trinket to escape after the opening stun from a ret pally before I am mown down. This is with 480 resilience (including an entire crafted savage set).
Does that mean I lack 'skill'? I'm sure if I had more 'skill' i could press 2 or 3 buttons before I died instead of just the one.
The balance in arenas is heinously out of whack.
Dec 17th 2008 3:57PM Don't blame Zach. He didn't design the PvP system where every non- melee class now has to stack resilience/ mitigation/ stamina at the expense of everything else to last more than 5 seconds.
Makes me yearn with nostalgic longing for the 'balance' of S3 &S4
Oct 28th 2008 5:24PM I feel a little bad for all the holy and prot pallies who didn't go around being ganking deuchebags over the last two weeks.
I definitely think it's impressive that ret pallies managed to push rogues and warlocks off the top of my "most irritating class to encounter while questing/ grinding".
My 12k hit point, 400 resilience toon normally expects to be able to put up a little bit of a fight when jumped out in the wild. You know, be a bit 'competitive'. THat's the word you poor nerfed pallies have been throwing around. "Competitive".
I normally expect to last long enough to at least be able to have time to hit my PvP trinket to escape the opening stun move before my health is reduced to zero.
I'm not saying I should be pwning everyone I meet. I'm talking about living long enough to react to the fact that I've been attacked.
Maybe I've been unlucky. Maybe all the ret pallies that have taken great delight in killing me also have 4 or 5 pieces of S4 gear. Or maybe they're super T6 dudes and have been farming Kil'Jaeden so often that they have been passing on stuff ("Oh no..you take it .. i already have that.
Or maybe they are just twerps in average gear who got lucky when they got super-buffed in a recent patch.
So maybe after this nerf we'll see how "competitive" you are. Because you pallies have made a lot of enemies over the last two weeks.
Thank your Ret brothers and sisters the next time you are serial ganked and camped until you have to log off.
Maybe it is a good idea that you ditch your poor lil' pally toons. Because you're about to get something to really cry about.
See you out there!
Oct 28th 2008 4:28AM I hope you pallies enjoyed yourselves over the last two weeks. If you thought it sucked to be ret before this new patch wait until you are being killed on sight repeatedly from now until forever.
Oct 27th 2008 9:47PM I think the whole event was kind of cool. I chose to fight the zombies rather than try and infect everyone.
It certainly disrupted my routine.. quest givers, vendors, battlemasters all dead when you 'needed' them. But what do i actually 'need' to do here?
Everything I do at the moment is just marking time til the expansion pack.
I don't NEED to do anything.
I'm sure victims of real life invasions wish they had the luxury of whining to Blizzard when their home town is overrun with zombies, aliens or the Wehrmacht. (not that i'm accusing Zach or his wife of whining).
Once i got into the swing of the event it was kind of fun. Sitting on my flying mount overlooking the carnage of Shattrath city.. it looked like the apocolypse had come. Kudos Blizzard. Kudos (Kodos?)
Oct 26th 2008 7:56AM I tell you what though, i'm gonna make hay while the sun shines.
Gonna pull my level 62 holy pally off the shelf, re-spec to Ret and get as much levelling done as i can before the nerf comes in. And if i get to 70 before that I'm gonna go stomp some Resto Druids!
To the ground!!!! mwahahhahahahahaa!

Mo I think this sentence sums it up.
Nice one =)
Oct 26th 2008 7:46AM "Some of us were preparing our paladins to lvl up with in wrath but now, we might as well reroll"
Try and be a bit more melodramatic next time. Sheesh....
