The Queue: Orange Coke is totally Warcraft-related {WoW}

May 18th 2011 12:51PM I'm actually going to recommend a Paladin. They are very straightforward with no bubbles, no hots, etc. You see someone injured, and you holy shock them. boom, done. It doesn't get much simpler than that.

BUT, when you do feel that you want more depth, you have an array of hands and blessings to enhance your healing capabilities, and push the challenge level of the class.

May 18th 2011 12:44PM I can confirm that GupPet will auto-dismiss the pet when you stealth. I'm not sure if this is an option, i think it just does it automagically. I highly recommend this addon if you like seeing your pets like I do.
It also handles all of your mounts, and even druid forms, too. It autoflightforms/travel forms when i'm in or out of combat, respectively, and mounts up in no fly zones all with 1 button press.

Blizzard working on ways to improve dungeon finder {WoW}

Jan 5th 2011 6:03PM I'm not sure that I understand your argument. In all of your scenarios, the reason for the wipe IS in fact that the healer ran out of mana. So when the dungeon finder says so, (and i am 99% sure that they are ALSO going to give some hints how to prevent whatever the reason was), they could say something like:

Reason for wipe:
Healer ran out of mana.

Helpful Hints:
For Tanks:
-Wait for your healer to regain more mana before moving on to the next combat.
-Pull groups farther back to avoid enemies who patrol the area.

For DPS:
-Prevent more enemies from attacking by using crowd control abilities
-Do not stand in harmful effects such as fire or void zones

For Healers:
-Try to use cheaper spells more often, like Nourish or Heal.
-Many players have ways to heal themselves after combat. Don't worry about keeping everyone at full life. Just focus on the players at most risk of dying.

Officers' Quarters: Be kind to your tanks and healers {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2011 5:21PM This is Extremely helpful! As a healer, I WILL notice that I overhealed a bit after your heal, but I will very much appreciate the effort. If you are pro-actively healing yourself, then you are helping me do my job, aka, making my job easier. This earns you many kudo points in my book, and makes me want to help you out, too.

So, after the tank, you'll be the first I concentrate on when the $#!! hits the fan, hopefully saving you a repair bill.
It may take a few pulls to get into the groove when you are likely to heal yourself, but again, the effort is very much appreciated.
