Breakfast Topic: Are you afraid of the PUG? {WoW}

Oct 16th 2011 1:06PM I'm a hypercasual player. I've avoided dungeon content at all costs for just this reason. When I go into the LFD as low-level DPS alts, I find myself sprinting through content I've never seen behind a tank that moves like a coked-up rhesus monkey through a Turkish bazaar. How, as a new player, or just an anti-social, am I supposed to learn the skills necessary to be useful? How can I join a guild when I cannot even get a good run of 5-mans under my belt? What messages do you send when you drop group as soon as anyone turns backwards to pick up the dungeon quests? Why aren't tanks at low level marking targets and explaining strats even for old content? Especially for old content? I would welcome any patient tank to come back and teach the new school how to manage, inform, and leave. Teach us to target the skull and sheep the moon early, and it won't suck so bad when we get to 85.

Maybe in addition to the "I'm a veteran" flag in LFD, we need also "I'm a speed-running elitist". "I'm a Veteran: is supposed to mean "I will try to lead the newer players in a slow and orderly manner, so they learn the dungeon, and will perform better." Not, well, "I'm a speed-running elitist jerk that will skip trash and get you noobs lost. Keep up or get kicked."

Addon Spotlight: Automate your life with some automatic addons {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2011 9:30AM

Xutils, has anyone talked about this yet? Automates several _other_ things that I cannot live without, and consolidates many single addons:

- increases the zoom out limit to the maximum allowable
- restores old ready check sound
- moves edit box to top of chat frame
- closes the edit box if you are typing in chat when you enter combat
- autoselects highest value quest reward when turning in quests
- changes the reputation bar to the new faction whenever you gain rep

Closing the chatbox when conbat starts keeps me from being dumb.

AddOn Spotlight: Chataclysm {WoW}

Apr 5th 2010 9:05AM +1 for Chatter + Cellular! Chatter is just good stuff, and lightweight compared to Prat for the same basic features. Cellular compares to WIM in a similar fashion: Whispers in windows. With tabs or individually. Simply and elegantly. Perfection.

For even simpler whisper management, why not TabbedWhispers? It creates new chat frames next to your chat and combat frames with new whispers, seperated by user, one per window. It's like Wim or Cellullar, but stripped even further down and built out to reuse as much existing Blizzard code as possible. Think Bartender 4 vs. Dominos .


Time is Money: Selling your quest rewards {WoW}

Mar 5th 2009 12:00PM Even better, combine SellFish with Vendor Bait. Then you get a big flashing border on the best item to vendor based on the SellFish info. So easy, even a murloc could do it!

WoW, Casually: How to choose your casual addons {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 1:04PM If you are following Jame's Guides, then why not go for Tour Guide and TomTom, along with the addon version of Jame's Guides?

Addon Spotlight: Control Freak {WoW}

Apr 11th 2008 8:20PM I cannot recommend this addon enough for mouse-click mages... It completely made my CC not suck. :) As far as Tekkub addons that ¨just work¨, please check out Buffet:

Officers' Quarters: Gold rush {WoW}

Feb 25th 2008 4:27PM Is there a way to extend the guild bank logs beyond just a few hours? Our GM complains that he can only see what goes on for a portion of the day, so the guildies on the take just wait until he's not on a few hours, then take what they can. Can the full log be pulled?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder {WoW}

Nov 16th 2007 2:16PM I'd love the option to fatten up my gnome chicks a little bit. Nothing cuter than a plump gnome rogue in stealth.
