Oct 13th 2008 9:21AM As I understand it, mutilate will be better than combat swords now for pure DPS, though combat swords is still 2nd. There is little enough in it that if you have so-so daggers and awesome swords you should stick combat.
I believe that slow daggers in both hands is good for mutilate, but it doesn't make that much difference. Normally you want slow main hand for high specials damage and fast off hand for poison application. Because mutilate uses both hands for specials the two effects mostly cancel each other out.
Attack rotations I've still not nailed down - some people have 4snd/4rupt/4evis as a 3 finisher set for mutilate. Also, the various glyphs mess up timings on all of these things so you will have to find someone who actually knows what they are talking about for that! :)
Of course, this is from someone who has been trying to have the same questions answered myself and I'm not 100% sure of anything here!
Sep 23rd 2008 8:05AM Absolutely - got the 13th till the 19th booked off :)
Sep 16th 2008 12:39PM If its something not intellectually demanding then maybe - I read wowinsider while I'm fishing ;)
But yeah, you can't *actually* concentrate on anything else properly.
Sep 11th 2008 12:01PM You cast BoS on yourself so the target is you :p
So increased block chance means that "the target" blocks more which means more procs.
Sep 3rd 2008 10:47AM The mounts from the baron and anzu just require you to be lucky and/or go lots and lots of times. The bear mount takes a *lot* of skill and top end gear to get.
The anzu and baron mounts aren't status symbols *now* because anybody can luck their way to one.
Sep 3rd 2008 10:44AM At 70 we already 6 manned 2 bosses in MC for a laugh once... had a good tank and 2 good healers so we could go all day, which was fine because 3 level 70 dpsers don't do anywhere near as much damage as 35 level 60 dpsers :)
So yeah, if you are good you might be able to 5 man some of AQ already.
Aug 28th 2008 4:06AM What TheRaptor said. I'm a technically competent type who also wouldn't dream of having a ring tone that didn't sound like a phone ringing. However... if it costs $3 to buy a ringtone and 15 minutes messing around installing software to rip out the data file, edit it, convert it, send it across... then you are working for a rate of $12/hour. Since my salary comes out to about $30/hour I could spend that extra 15 minutes doing over time at work and get 2.5 ringtones instead.
Aug 27th 2008 12:27PM Seemed to me like the Greathmother chain was payback for the awesome Lady Prestor malarky that Alliance got in the old world, making it 1 each.
Aug 21st 2008 12:01PM I'm suprised to find that you use Holy Light as your downranking example... I crunched all of the numbers for my Holy Pally on live and the max rank is also the most mana efficient. I only have one downranked Holy Light on my bar and that is picked to do about the same healing as my max rank Flash for if I want to keep Light's Grace up but don't need the full load of healing... which is to say that I could get the same healing quicker and with a lower mana cost by using the Flash.
Its of very, very situational usefulness... Mostly now I just use it to get the buff just before the pull.
Downranking was nerfed beyond real usefulness a long time ago. If you are still downranking then you either have a very, very different gear situation to me or you need to revisit your theorycraft.
