Jan 20th 2009 1:44PM It was expected. Just sucks given that I raid EU times on a US server so we have to delay our raid now.
Jan 14th 2009 6:46AM I don't really care anymore what kind of DPS others bring. I can easily carry one person by myself. By carry I don't mean split my DPS and it will be sub-1200 either. My absolute only concerns are the tank and the healer. I play an ENH shammy so aggro is a pain. If I have an undergeared tank I have to take off several pieces of gear and change out my weapons to heroic weapons. If I have a garbage healer I might as well plan on tanking small mobs just to take pressure off of the healer.
Jan 12th 2009 2:46PM Not taking static shock is throwing away DPS imo. It's not a huge boost don't get me wrong but it's basically free DPS. If you're only at 10% mana consumed I'm amazed. Are you using LB at every single possible 5-stack of MW? On most fights I'll usually hit about 20-30% before I pop Shamanistic Rage.
Jan 12th 2009 2:41PM That means that you're doing it wrong. I'm 0/16/56 and I can't think of a single fight where I have issues with mana. If you're able to hit a mob you're able to get mana back. If you run out of mana faster than 2 minutes you are severely lacking int. I can see it being an issue for pvp I guess.
Jan 7th 2009 7:00AM This is one of the reasons why I'm in Europe and play on US servers. I raid at noon server time which is far too early for most people so 90% of the time my guild is the only one raiding anything. It also helps with farming because when I get on in the afternoon it's early morning server time.
Jan 4th 2009 1:08PM Affliction locks do a whole mess of DPS. Sure it's not easy for everybody to keep up but those that do bring an enormous amount of DPS. On fights such as Thaddius our top DPS is an affliction lock that pulls 7k DPS. Though his DPS is lowering now that more and more of us are getting geared and can match his DPS which lowers his due to the length of the fight.
Dec 19th 2008 2:51AM It's great for Thaddius in Naxx. Every single fight we consistently have 3 people not make the jump and they inevitably die. They aren't bad raiders because they bring great DPS and don't die with the polarity shifts when they actually make it thye just aren't good at mario apparently.
Dec 16th 2008 8:13AM I never did arena in BC because shammies were worthless. I'm looking forward to seeing how we will do in wrath now that enh can actually kill things.
Nov 10th 2008 7:17AM I want a bear!
Oct 6th 2008 4:06PM I'm also in the military currently deployed to Bulgaria and straight to Romania after I'm done here. I ended up finding a guild that raids CEST (central european standard time) so that I can continue raiding. I did the whole 2am thing and managed to get through BT and 1% on Kalecgos but it's not easy. Our GM simply did it by putting an ad in the Stars and Stripes as well as posting on all of the realm forums. The only problem that I've noticed with this format is that there is a disparage in skill. They all have good intentions but a good percentage aren't all that skilled. I hope that you have better luck in that regard.
