Mar 22nd 2010 6:26PM I wouldnt waste a GCD on a trap myself, I disengage out and shoot while getting away, using as many GCDs on shots and getting to my spot faster to resume our boring rotation =)
Mar 18th 2010 9:54PM I use Kharthas's Hunter Timers (name is close to that) for serpent stings and mend pet.
Mar 16th 2010 7:56AM You are correct, and my wording could have been better. Arpen is not wasted over softcap, but less beneficial to gem for than agility.
Mar 15th 2010 9:59PM One thing to note, finding softcap is not hard. Arpen cap is 1400, you subtract the trinket proc arp from 1400, and you get your softcap. Any arp gemmed over softcap is a waste, and should be replaced with agility or agility/crit gems. The reason for this is, when your trinket procs any arp from it that puts you over hardcap is not used.
Jan 28th 2010 9:08PM -Deterence does work, watch the cast and use it right before it ends. Why would mages use Iceblock once so they dont have to get spores, and not hunters?
-Stacking on the Green Oozes target on Putricide is a DPS loss if it isnt down before it gets to you. Melee can soak all the damage and are already stacked together, we can stay at range and blast away, disengage, nuke Prof, and already be in position for the next Ooze.
-You make the person who is least beneficial to the raid use the nature resist. This can be your lowest dps hunter, MM or SV. If you have multiple Shamans, it can be them as well.
-Phase three Putricide, if you stand in the center, have the slime puddles start from there, you can do a lot less moving and following, and you dont have to watch for the orange bombs on the ground.
May 18th 2009 4:09PM Well, a resolution has been found, the two accounts "banned" are reinstated and I am back to playing. Blizzard admitted the mistake and apologized for the lack of communcation multiple time.
Now, Account Admin is not very customer service oriented, with no phone number to contact and multiple days to hear back from them. Billing was very helpful (after a bit) and one GM I talked to was very helpful, the other, not so much. Sounds like have talked different "entities" of Blizzard, and found them to be less than stellar in response time, communication in general, and throwing around the "Ban Hammer" for no apparent reason.
On another note, if you run addons, or view web pages while logged in to your WoW account, your authenticator does nothing for account security. Just a little heads up, in case others assumed themselves protected by this$7 device.
This is a great game, I will continue playing it, but more and more problems come up every day, in game and out, and blind following and support for a game and company that as let qualty slip is no good either...
May 17th 2009 3:48PM Lol, oh wow, just wow, blind following of a game developer is cool! I never said anything about quiting, not once, but if my account is not reinstated for being WRONGFULLY banned, then yes, I will quit. What you do not realize, is my whole guild got banned, someone got hacked, and we all got insta-banned. Pretty cool. Good thing all of us were trading accounts AND exploiting the economy. Oh, just a little FYI, Blizz already confirmed that it was wrong on there part, that I was hacked, and admitted that the authenticators they sell do nothing but keep someone from logging into your account initially, but if you are already logged in, you have a huge chance of being hacked if you have ANY addons, or if you browse the internet while playing. If you are already logged in, the authenticator is worthless. Well thank you blizzard, I am glad I spent the money on that worthless item. To the guy that responed to me, lol, your as worthless as the authenticator, go play with your care bears and hello kitty dolls you fourteen year old fuck.
May 16th 2009 3:25PM I find it disheartning that Blizzard spends so much effort and money of these conferences, yet can not fix little bugs or lag in game. Hell, they can't solve account admin problems at the momment, so my account is currently locked out of buying these tickets. Thank you so much blizzard, first you said i was trading my account, then when I respond to your email, I am "Exploiting the Economy," really, you dont know what you guys are doing and are taking this great game farther and farther down my playlist, just like so many others...
Mar 9th 2009 5:35PM Sorry to tell you guys, but hard modes are here to stay. Do it or don't, it is completely your choice, but do expect to be considered a "second-rate" raider because you can't finish all content in the game. Yes, OS3D is content, yes, you need to be good to do it, if you don't care about it, good for you. People who don't want/care about being challenged point to vanity mounts and titles and an excuse to not do something. If these mounts/titles were not awarded, what would there be to complain about then? It would come down to not being good enough...I myself haven't beaten OS3D, i'm not some incredible player, but I enjoy being challenged, and AFKing in raids is not a challenge to me.
