May 25th 2009 2:13AM what a load of crap article.. seriously
May 20th 2009 12:46AM I realy don't like the new site at all. You can barely see the articles through all of you adclick crapola advertising links. Tone it down already.
Also your RSS Feeds are coming from firstname.lastname@example.org which i think, is wrong.
Overall it looks cluttered and unorganised. I really don't like it atall.
Apr 17th 2008 4:27PM Shammy's in Heroic MgT do alot. Tremor totem breaks sleep effects, poison cleanse totem for poison cleanse, grounding absorbs those horrrible stray icebolts and warlock aggro. All those benefits over a single CC.. u decide. I think we would all agree if ur tank does the trick, then less CC is required. CC is a safeguard for nubness. L2Omen
Apr 17th 2008 4:17PM btw in my S3 gear I have 448 Resil, 13k HP, 12k Armor, 13k Mana. Its no big deal to frost shock and OT mobs as a shaman. Earth shield, strength of earth, gift of naaru, natureswiftness+greater heal, earth elemental, are all great toold to OT mobs. I find myself OTing mobs in SSC alot from chain heall agro / crappy pulls. Again to those that mock us Shamans, go play one for a while before u pass ur uneducated judgements. We own joo!
Apr 17th 2008 4:11PM I have had my 70 shaman since a couple of weeks after BC was released. It is my main toon specced as resto. I actually levelled as a resto shaman before the spell damage was added to healing gear. Its not hard to instance grind as a healer. I found for a long time that shamans were misunderstood by players who had never played them. Initiall I was told that best healing classes were Preists, Druids, paladins, then shamans. The day I read "Chain heal" in release notes i wanted to pwn that ridiculous statement about who's best at healing. I mean lets face it, each healer has its place in a raid, HoT's for Druids, CoH for priests, Chain heals for Shamans, and Pally's.. well flash of light. I think the +heal requirements for a resto shaman are alot less that the other classes. Chain Heal rank 2 is ur best friend until T5/T6, then u can uprank to 3 or 4. I have always out healed every other class as a shaman with ease. Enough to make up for no HoT's, and no CoH. I have seen Enchance Shaman's in greens and blues out DPS rogues warriors and mages. I know of one specific enchance shaman who was out dpsing lvl 70 toons and lvl 65. I see alot of shamans who rarely drop totems. And if they do they are mostly to enchance the shamans abilities, not the group. I myself drop totems every pull, and are always to better the group over myself. +101 heals from Grace of air isnt going to make as much a difference compared to say an extra 70 agil for hunter/druid/rogues. Considering most resto shamans overheal 30% upwards to 60% each run +heals after 1500 are much less important.
I think what sticks out to me at the end of the day with shamans, is the skill behind the toon. Manage threat as all 3 specs, drop the right totems in teh right place ALL the time. Spec correctly (for resto focus on mana longevity), and put that damn earth shield on the tank! :D
Apr 15th 2008 1:53PM Oh And what really helps, is if you turn down all sound and music, and turn up ambient sound. This way you can watch T.V and only have too look down when you hear the splash :D
Apr 15th 2008 1:40PM I began to write a guide for my guildmates on fishing. I managed to get from 1 to 375 in a day. In STV i manage to catch a book which gave me the fish finding passive skill so I could see schools of fish on my minimap.
Just use aquadynamic fish attractors all the time and u have no problem skilling up.
1-75 in SW every fish
75-100 in SS every second to third fish
100-125 in Refuge Point every fourth fish
125-150 in Booty Bay every fifth fish
10-225 in Western Plaguelands every fifth/sixth fish
After that head out to Karazhan (+spell dmg fish) or Zangamarsh (+stam Fish), or Allerian Stronghold (+heals fish). Zang has loads of extra goodies that u catch too.
