Reader UI of the Week: Get personal with Absinth's redesign for raiding {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 4:23AM "make all my guys look like this UI currently does" feature - Reflux should be able to do this. I haven't tried it yet (thanks for reminding me of it, btw), but it can switch all profiles with one command. Should be great for us altoholics.

Shifting Perspectives: Probing healer balance in Dragon Soul {WoW}

Jan 18th 2012 11:15AM For World of Logs, it is almost that simple. Just look at the "healing by spell" tab for a discipline priest - you'll see healing+absorb=hps. It even seems to detect "overshielding", so if the priest is spamming shields that don't get used, it will not count for effective healing.

Of course you have to remember that shields are a different beast, and a disc priest might be useful for absorbs/raid cooldown even if he doesn't put out massive hps in a specific fight. But I've seen too many priests with meager healing done in random raids who say "but but disc", and I have no problem keeping up with other healers on my priest (raiding 10man with a pally and in some fights an additional holy priest), so I think you can, and maybe should, compare them.

(Kind of unrelated: the easier the fight is, the easier it is as disc to top the meters. We don't get bragging rights. :( )

Shifting Perspectives: Probing healer balance in Dragon Soul {WoW}

Jan 17th 2012 8:19PM Comparing average hps is always difficult. But I think you should include disc priests. WOL counts absorbs as healing, so you don't have barrier or pain suppression, but everything else is there. And I think it's interesting that discipline priests do better in 10man normal and heroic, while holy priests seem to be stronger in 25man raids.

"You can't compare disc cause absorbs" is just an excuse for lazy discipline priests nowadays. ;)

Around Azeroth: Lobstergeddon {WoW}

Aug 12th 2011 11:00AM It's one of the fishing dailies to turn yourself into lobster bait. :)

The Daily Quest: Keeping track of things {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2011 9:36AM I really appreciate the effort, but please do not recommend haste to a fresh 85 disc priest. Haste is good when your mana is infinite. As long as you still go oom in heroics, crit or mastery are far more useful and help to save mana.

Also, Evangelism stacks up to five times, using Archangel with three stacks is not efficient. And your Smite spec is missing Train of Thought, a very very useful talent for Smite healing.

Again, posting such a cheat sheet is a good thing, but it's dangerous to present things like your stat priority as established fact, when there are other opinions out there.

The Queue: Voynich bin ein Berliner {WoW}

Feb 12th 2011 12:34PM There are, we just don't recognise them because they don't have unique models. For example, Arator the Redeemer (mother High Elf, father Human, looks like a High Elf) and Kalec who should be looking like a half-elf, but has a Human model.

These seem to be the only half-elfs in the game, if someone knows of other mixed race characters I'd love to hear about them, too.

Love is in the Air event plagued by bugs {WoW}

Feb 7th 2011 6:08AM At least you get your charms. I still hate the fact that in dungeons everyone except the healer gets these charms. The other people in my guild are done farming after the daily heroic, I (playing two 85 healers) have to respec and go slaughter mobs in the wild to get them.

Spiritual Guidance: Finishing Wrath raids as a 4.0.1 healing priest {WoW}

Oct 4th 2010 6:50AM Leap of Faith is a lvl 85 ability. No Life Grip in 4.0.1, sorry. :(

The Queue: Yes, there will be mounts {WoW}

If your horde toon's name is unique among your toons, you can even send BoA across realms and factions. Don't trust and want to know for sure. Buy a Honor token (very cheap), and try it. ]

:( It would have been so great!
