Arcane Brilliance: Do mages need to be hit-capped? {WoW}

May 29th 2011 12:21AM Also go check some WoL logs and armory the top mage performers. You will notice they are all between 16-17%, usually on the lower end. The person who writes this column should actually do some research before finalizing his column.

Arcane Brilliance: Do mages need to be hit-capped? {WoW}

May 29th 2011 12:19AM Mages don't need to cap hit. Once you are above 16% hit the DPS gains for getting to 17% is negligible and going over 17% hit is a DPS loss. I play as Arcane, I am at 16.28% hit and I run at an average of 25-27k DPS in normal raid content.

Officers' Quarters: When raiders hold your guild hostage {WoW}

May 9th 2011 6:20PM @ Raidleader

If you are running a raid team in a raid guild and you don't have a bench of ~20% of the total needed to raid then any issues that come up due to people leaving is completely your fault.

You have spoiled your raiders by never swapping anyone in and out. You have screwed your raid by not having a bench for in case people don't show or quit. These are just facts and as such are inarguable.

The main purpose of having a bench is obvious, in case people no show or quit you don't end up having to PUG. The other reason is psychological. If people know they have competition for their raid slots that will play better whether they know it or not. You say you were progressing fine, but since you are still "progressing" you have not killed all the content. There is a good chance that had you had a bench of 2-3 people to sub in and out you would have gotten better play from EVERYONE in your raid with the exception of yourself (since your raid spot is guaranteed as raid leader).

As to ANYONE refusing to sit this is simple. YOU are the raid leader and you sit who you want. If they have a problem with it they can leave and be replaced. Recruiting for 10 man with a decent progression is easy enough right now where it really isn't a bother. My suggestion is to grow some balls and sit who you want to sit when you want to sit them. The only "sway" I would show in this is to either state a schedule of some sort for people sitting or simply state that the people with the lowest raid performance will most likely be the ones to sit. Raid performance meaning more execution fo the strategy and avoidance of death than in actual number output.

Hope I helped.

"Slaytanic asked:

"Any idea if Tol Barad will have its own raid instance, like WG?"

Yes, it's called Baradin Hold."

/sigh

Yay for free gear yet again.

Jul 25th 2010 10:16PM Best screenshot yet IMO. Zangar was my favorite zone back in BC and that looks quite similar.

100% agreed on the frost shock and thunderstorm.

I cant count how many times on my ele shammy I have saved people with a well timed frost shock or a well aimed thunderstorm. A lot of ele shammies though see frost shock as not being as good as earth shock for damage reasons and as such don't even keep it on their bars. I can't say they aren't right in the damage department but its still just so useful in many situations.

Jul 24th 2010 12:05PM So you didn't answer my question Vao. Are you going to deny being one of the biggest elitists and trolls on Muradin? If you want me to start taking screenshots of you trolling the alliance trade chat I am more than willing to do so. Hell I could even just post links to some of your replies to applicants on your own guild forums. And no, I didn't get denied, I am alliance for life.

Jul 23rd 2010 10:18PM I simply think people should know the creator behind the video in the same light as your entire server. Are you going to deny you are one of the biggest elitist's and trolls on Muradin?

You are right, she is a complete and total piece of trash. She generally spends her time on her ally spy in trade chat upsetting people in order to report them as soon as they start cussing at her. While I don't agree with cussing in an open chat, the fact that she purposely trolls in order to make people mad to that extend is quite pathetic. It is a dark stain on wow.com for posting this video and I am in agreement that it should be removed. But I doubt the opinion of 2 people will make that happen. Unfortunately this video is not the only issue I have with postings/posters on this site.
