Breakfast Topic: What's your WoW grudge? {WoW}

Mar 15th 2012 9:51AM One quest chain led to more deaths for my first toon (a nelf) than Hogger, Devilsaurs, and Fel Reavers combined.... the old Tower of Althalaxx quest chain. If you didn't experience the living h**l that was this quest chain, at level, then you haven't lived - literally bc/ you would spend your whole time dead. Tons of mobs, often aggro linked, you had to fight your way through just to get to a named NPC (thankfully not elite). Inevitably I would die on the way there and then corpse run back, start again, die some more. I finally got to the named NPC, who was of course guarded by yet more NPCs. By the time I finally killed him, the entire camp I had just fought my way through had all respawned so I had to fight my way all the way back out. I think I probably just too rez-sickness after awhile just to get out and be done with that quest chain. You can still read about it at Wowhead: www.wowhead.com/quest=970/the-tower-of-althalaxx

Breakfast Topic: What's your WoW grudge? {WoW}

Mar 15th 2012 9:35AM Please transfer half your DS group to ours as we're in the exact same position but ONLY Vanquisher drops. We have 2 people on Vanquisher (druid and mage) and the druid now has, literally, 4 sets all w/ 4 set bonus. In the past 6 weeks, we've seen I think four tokens that WEREN'T Vanquisher from full clears every week.... After however many weeks it's been (and we started heroics second week) I just got my first piece of heroic tier Tuesday. Our warrior (1), hunter (1), and shaman (2) are so far behind in gear it's not even funny.

Totem Talk: The ups and downs of playing enhancement in Dragon Soul {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2012 12:58PM I wouldn't say "most" locks don't play affliction. At least in 25s affliction is way way better overall than either of the other two specs. In 10s demo seems to be better off, probably bc/ most people in 10s are desperate for the spellpower buff (assuming they don't have an elemental shaman).

Totem Talk: The enhancement shaman of 2011 {WoW}

Jan 8th 2012 10:58AM The haste self buffs from flurry/unleash wind are built-in to the class. We're talking about stats on gear. In Wrath, after Ulduar, haste was THE number one stat to gem for. Currently using EnhSim, haste is a worse stat for me than spirit or strength.... That's the problem with haste. On most fights, I'm either first or 2nd on damage in DS.... until we get to Madness then I'm literally the bottom. We get NO benefit from haste at all right now. Every other DPS in my raid gets a humongous benefit from haste and it essentially does nothing at all for enhance.

My only other, minor, complaint right now is the ramp up time for AoE. It's fine on fights like Yor'sahj, but at least with our group composition, I don't even bother with bloods anymore because I _might_ get one fire nova off before they're all dead. Again, this is minor because we're in such a better place right now that I'd be scared they might make it worse again! :-)

Totem Talk: The enhancement shaman of 2011 {WoW}

Jan 8th 2012 10:51AM The reason it's relatively easy for us to reforge to meet hit/expertise caps is precisely because haste (and crit to some extent) are so useless and that so many of our off-spec, and even some spec pieces, are loaded with it. Enhance has about 2300 total rating to achieve between hit and expertise and that is significantly more than ANY other class/spec has to get.
