Paragon scores world-first Sinestra heroic kill {WoW}

Jan 20th 2011 6:12PM Druids and shamans are fine for 10 man normals, they don't heal as much, or as good as priests and paladins with equal "skill", but it is enough to down normal raid bosses.

This is what I have heard from prominent shaman and druid bloggers that seem to know what they do.

I tried to druid heal myself, healing through heroics and getting full 346 gear, and when I still could not heal the first boss in sfk and the last boss in the water instance I just changed to dpsing with my hunter. Because clearly my healing skills were too bad, and I left it to people hopefully better skilled to heal our raids.

The sudden yet inevitable betrayal of gaming immersion {WoW}

Jan 7th 2011 8:57PM All the nazi quests in Uldum hit a bit too close to heart. My grandmother have talked about her having a jewish child for a while in her care (parents lived, moved back after the war) (we live in Sweden).

I just think blizzard should have toned it down, it got a bit too much after the first few quests. Maybe I'm too sensitive, yeah, probably just that.

It would be great if you at wow insider could actually talk with people in Germany and ask them about their thoughts of the questline.

Scattered Shots: Survival hunter 101 {WoW}

Dec 27th 2010 9:21PM The elitist jerks guide seem to be written using beta numbers, back then arcane shot did more damage, and thus it was better to use it instead of kill command.

I recalculated with damage from a recent recount and comparing to femaledwarf, doing exp>arc>exp>arc>arc gave 100k damage, and exp>kill>exp>arc>exp gave 120k damage.

focus usage for only arc: 90 focus

focus usage for including kill: 102 focus

Now, how much damage is 12 focus?

Arcane shot dps: 11729 Cobra shot dps: 7600

Difference is 4k, 4k/22*12 = 2k, thus cost of focus is neglible

Conclusion: exp>kill>exp>arc>exp gives the most dps, but it is not that much of a difference, so if your pet is out shopping, you can always use your lock and load proc on an arcane shot.

I used numbers from femaledwarf.com, and it's only a rough scetch in my head.

I'm just saying that this issue requires more testing than saying what you just said, just because it may seem obvious and everyone is doing it, maybe it's not.

Scattered Shots: Survival hunter 101 {WoW}

Dec 27th 2010 7:47PM Let's say you have 90 focus, and you get a lock and load proc, wouldn't it be better dps to do Explosive Shot>Arcane Shot>Explosive Shot>Cobra shot(x1.5 or what the time extra is) instead of the suggested Explosive Shot>Kill Command>Explosive Shot>Cobra Shot>Explosive Shot.

I remember reading this on elitist jerks, but maybe I'm just remembering wrong.

Scattered Shots: Moar heroics for hunters {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 9:58PM Well, fair enough. Was hoping for an ultra secret cave of respawning xp-mobs, but I guess I could level atleast my new turtle the normal way.

Ah, so it's just like that warlock dogthingie interrupt. I was thinking, maybe we could do a macro that turns off pet-abilities and then puts the interrupt on auto-cast, and then shiftclick to reset to normal. This macro would have its full use in fights where only one spell is cast, but I think activating it just when the correct spell is cast would be faster and more reliable than spamming and hoping the spell will cast.

I am also looking for a wyvern sting macro, currently my pet races to the sleeper target and just stands there, making me all nervous when he races there. I would love to have a macro that makes my pet stand at me, but still have defensive mode. Might be impossible to do due to travel time of wyvern sting?

Scattered Shots: Moar heroics for hunters {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 8:23PM What is the best way to level hunter pets?

We can't just go into an heroic with out tank pets anymore and expect to not be yelled at.

Any good places to farm mobs that give exp?

I got both ghostcrawler and terrorpene today, waited 10 hours for terrorpene and got ghostcrawler just flying to his spawn site to see if he was there.

Also, how do you use the gorilla interrupt? Everyone keeps yelling at me on 5 man heroic bosses to interrupt, but I am BM/SV, so I just went out and tamed a gorilla. I click the gorilla interrupt, but nothing happens, the cast still goes through.

Breakfast Topic: What feature does WoW need most? {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 8:38AM An ordinary notepad would be great too, to write down that you need to enchant your chest, that you need to get 5 copper ore and 3 whatimajigs for the thingyhamag you wanted.

The Queue: Healing is super fun {WoW}

Dec 16th 2010 1:28PM How come so few dps actually do any good dps? Most do about 5k dps.

As a healer, the current number one reason we don't down a boss is low dps, the fight takes too long to down. I never ever use any mana expensive heal, I don't top everyone up and everyone seems to know the fights (ie, not taking any unnecessary damage)

I have no idea what is going on, but a friend did 13k dps total in deadmines hc, I did as my offspec 11k dps wailing at the boss ?? dummy for 12 minutes. My gear (and my friends) is barely even enchanted, and is about item level 340 total now.
