Breakfast Topic: Holiday boss in the dungeon finder is the best thing ever {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2010 9:29AM In my opinion Blizzard should add a random daily to get 2xFrosties, instead of forcing uber-geared people to /carerun instances along with massively undergeared players who happen to pop in a dungeon the first time and run it in warp speed.

I perfectly understand Blizzard's intentions but I feel the Dungeon Finder tool completely failed on the social aspect (zerg runs of 10 minutes or less with ZERO chat at all). On a side note, fresh 80's or so don't have a chance to actually "learn" class mechanics in group (healing, tanking, cc, etc).

It's mostly a hyperspeed train where you jump in and grab your daily frosties. I've even seen "/follow" players who just join in and "brb 1 min" while others clear everything. A friend did that last week and we cleared everything with him in auto-follow. He DC shortly before we killed the final boss and guess what? He got the emblems via mail...

The new LFD tool is better than begging for a group in trade (unless you're DPS because it can take up to 20 mins... doh) but makes heroics a complete joke in terms of fun.

World of Warcraft Patch 3.3.5 Patch Notes {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2010 7:45AM The new patch includes a kind of "privacy" option. Does it work with non-realID friends too? Will I be finally able to set something like "invisible" to everyone while doing my business?

Scattered Shots: Transitioning to hunter PvP {WoW}

Jun 4th 2010 4:31AM To make your "jump shot" a little easier just use this macro and bind it to your MIDDLE mouse button (or any other comf. button):

/castsequence Chimera Shot, Aimed Shot, Arcane Shot
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

Just move, jump and smash the button. It will cast your 3 insta-shots as soon as they're off CD, so you do not need to actually hit 3 different buttons. It can help, until you master the keybinding.

You can add more "instants" out of CD if you wish. My full macro is:

/use 10 (Pyro Rocket)
/cast Silencing Shot
/cast Kill Command
/cast Rapid Fire
/castsequence Chimera Shot, Aimed Shot, Arcane Shot
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

Scattered Shots: Hunting heroics and PUGs {WoW}

Jan 18th 2010 9:32PM @ Tirrimas

Test it, you can see the benefits on a dummy too. It needs a little practice to fast-switch. Aspects are out of global cooldown so you basically hit the kye while doing your rotation, you waste no time at all.

Scattered Shots: Hunting heroics and PUGs {WoW}

Jan 18th 2010 6:10PM Sometimes while I run heroics I see this comment (whispered or in party chat)

"I've never seen a hunter switching aspect so many times in few minutes"

That's true. I have macroed the aspect switch (AotV Aodh) to the key "E" so that I sitch to Viper/Hawk with a fast key tap and while moving around. What changed my hunter's life experience was using Viper ONLY while shooting Steady Shot. Whenever all the shots are on cooldown and I've got SShot only (and supposing I need mana ofc) I switch to Viper, cast 2x Steady and switch back to Hawk (and the normal rotation goes on until I have all the shots on CD and I can use SShot only, rinse repeat as needed).

This way I shot the best shot I have i nterms of mana/efficiency. Also, I could not shoot anything else (because I have a cooldown on every shot). Less mana consumed while DPSing, fast mana regeneration.

Doing this allows me to keep a full DPS on my enemy. The DPS loss is very marginal, sometimes almost not noticeable. I could not believe it myself, so I just started mastering the aspect-switch on the move and... well, I ended any mana problem.

10 and 25 man are not a problem anymore. 5man (heroics) require some viper -yes- but a fast switch between aspect coupled with Steady only... try it for yourself, you will be amazed.

## Note: credits to OutDPS.com too, who introduced it in a slightly different way.

Breakfast Topic: The all-DPS Group {WoW}

Jan 13th 2010 9:04AM The only complain I have for LFD tool is the total lack of friendship/relationship with players. You queue up, auto-port to the dungeon, kill stuff, loot, auto-port-back to town. End of story. I've seen countless ninjas on greens/orbs and ofc if Battered Hilt drops it's out of question that ANYONE will roll for it, even a player who already got (and used) one (being a BOE worth 10K+ gold).

The tool works amazingly well but makes thing a bit too much anonymous/robotic.

Tuesday Morning Post: Best Patch Ever Edition {WoW}

Dec 15th 2009 6:24AM Try asking leader/party if you can keep the cloth. People wont insta-DE it and pass for you (usually).
