Drama Mamas: My guildies are turning into alcoholics! {WoW}

Jun 15th 2010 12:59AM Not alcohol related but vaguely similar.

In early BC days when we were getting into the swing of Karazhan, we were approaching the lair of Terestian Illhoof. if you remember, the ramp down to his room ends close enough to a bunch of imps that just going to the end of the hall would pull them.

Well - making our way down there we stopped well short of the end to prepare for the pull.
HOWEVER, our primary healer kept going, hit the wall at the end, pulled the room and we subsequently wiped.

We'd assumed he'd had a bad lag spike but when he didn't respond for a while and eventually logged out afk, we wondered more.

Eventually his wife came on and gave us the goss.

He'd had bad back problems recently and was on some fairly heavy medication. He'd actually fallen asleep while running down the ramp and hadn't woken up till some hours later.

And much hilarity ensued at his expense (we're all good friends - it was well intentioned ribbing I assure you).


Patch 3.3.5 PTR: Zalazane's Fall quest summary and gallery {WoW}

May 27th 2010 5:41PM Does anyone know the level range for this?

That is, is it an end-game quest sequence like Battle For The Undercity, or one that low level characters can do?

The Daily Quest: Grid healing addon guides and resources {WoW}

Oct 19th 2009 9:33PM I've had a lot of conversations with guildies and friends over Healbot vs Grid/Clique.

What it boils down to is:

Healbot = Simple. EASY TO SETUP, works out-of-the-box. Confusing in groups of more than 10.

Grid+Clique = Complex, HARD TO SETUP (Clique is easy though). However - Provides better situation awareness, better debuff reporting and can be used for more than just healing.

If you want a simple, easy to use package and are only doing 5mans or small raids then HB is just fine. However more advanced raiding practically requires a more advanced solution. Which is where Grid steps in.

It's very fiddly to get started with but once you've taken the time to learn how it will more than repay your time.

I use it on most of my toons now that have some sort of raid utility value. My Prot Pali uses it to gauge threat and debuffs. Clique is configured to throw Righteous Defense, Hand of Protection/Freedom/Salvation, Lay on Hands, Cleanse etc on raid members as needed.

Well worth the time taken to learn the mod.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Celebrating with free TCG loot {WoW}

Breakfast Topic: Stupid mistakes {WoW}

May 25th 2008 7:23PM Years back when my mage still had a fresh coat of paint - and while I was still sticking abilities onto my toolbar as I got them, I ended up with Pollymorph right next to Blink.

It stayed there for ages, never really causing problems till the more frantic instances and raids of the 60s-70 range.

It took 3 instances of me blinking right into the group I was supposed to be sheep-pulling to convince me that moving the two icons apart would be a good idea.
