Scattered Shots: Optimizing your hunter for heroics {WoW}

Dec 24th 2010 3:06AM Tell that to the tanks. When I trap pull, I usually get sweared at or kicked. Even when I explain before the fights that I need to trap pull and why, I will not be allowed too.

Many times I get my mark, active my trap launcher and see the mobs all running to the tank just as my trap flies through the air to the now empty spot where the mob used to be. Then the tank proceeds shouting 'RETRAP RETRAP'... which is obviously on cooldown.

Also the famous 'drop DnD under the trapped mob' works wonders for our cc... Many tanks are bad these days.

Scattered Shots: Moar heroics for hunters {WoW}

Dec 24th 2010 2:43AM Take them to normal dungeons. Two or three runs and your pet goes from 82 to 85. I leveled 19 pets like that (1 was with me while leveling myself). In normals, the dip in dps from a lower level pet is hardly noticable. Sometimes on the last boss I'd summon my 85 pet if the group dps was a little low, but other then that, no problem at all.

Due to the nerf in XP from mobs when reaching 85, it's not much use to level a pet outside a dungeon.

Officers' Quarters: Surviving as a small guild {WoW}

Dec 20th 2010 3:59PM I think it will be hard in a few weeks/months, when other guilds are reaching higher levels, which is why I started recruiting for my new guild now. I wasn't really ready, busy time IRL, but if I wait too long, and everyone else is level 10+, recruiting will be that much harder. Now we're level 2 in a level 5 world and that doesn't scare people too much.

I think new and small guilds are facing rough times :(

Call for Submissions: Cataclysm tips and tricks {WoW}

Dec 13th 2010 3:20AM And that CC is broken by big patches of red goo on the ground... aka Death Knight Tank. The tank I met last night marked which one I had to trap and then proceeded to drop his AoE stuff on the ground, right under all the mobs. Needless to say, my trap doesn't hold through damage and we wiped a lot, after which the tank blamed me and other dps for not cc-ing. Yeah...

Raid Rx: Leveling tips for Cataclysm healers from 80 to 85 {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2010 11:35AM I can't even decide which healer to level (I have 5), let alone how to level :-P I'll level my hunter first though and I think I'll just roll another shaman (goblin this time) and take that to 85. Although I like my priests too. AAAAAAhhhh, I don't know.

The Light and How to Swing It: Leveling your new Sunwalker {WoW}

Nov 29th 2010 3:10AM My Sunwalker is called Anshe. I was surprised to see it wasn't taken yet. It means 'sun' in Taur-ahe :-)

Breakfast Topic: How do you find a new realm to call home? {WoW}

Nov 26th 2010 11:32AM I transferred to a new server a few years ago. I found it by checking which pve server had the highest ranking guilds (wowranking) and high horde population (wow census). Then I checked the realm forum for a while and made an alt there to check activity and get to know some guilds. After a few weeks of 'research' I moved and it was a perfect choice.

I sometimes log in with an alt on my old server and it's sad to see Org and Dalaran so void of horde. Hardly any pugs happening, slow progression, only 1 horde guild actually getting anywhere. I don't miss it.

Bad news: No race changes to new race/class combos until Dec. 7th {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2010 3:56PM Just because you don't care, doesn't mean no one should. I wanted to race change a couple of alts before Cataclysm, too, and although it won't kill me to wait, it does upset me in a way. I don't see why it should be blocked until Cataclysm.

It is something I looked forward to, something that 'excites' me, in your words. I don't see why we should all be happy go lucky that we can't change yet and not mention it ever again.

Official forums are now read-only {WoW}

Nov 19th 2010 6:35AM Old forums are still working fine.

Oh wait. You mean the US forums. Any change you will ever learn that EU people also read this site and that the world doesn't end at the border of the US? How hard is it to add 'US' to 'Official forums are now read-only'?

Addon Spotlight: ElvUI {WoW}

Nov 18th 2010 11:32AM Am I missing something or are you discussing an UI with hardly any screenshots? Where is the screenshot of a healer in a 25 man raid? It's nice showing the least cluttered UI, but I'd like to see the most cluttered one to form an opinion of the UIs use.
