Ready Check: Guide to Naxxramas (Thaddius) {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 11:34AM We find lots of shouting helps... along with max camera distance to individually call out the idiots standing alone. We have the run around down for the most part.

We got the hang of it by doing a dry run through with a hunters pet out in the hallway before the boss. You can always try that to get people to understand the fight. Then you can correct errors before they happen.

I will also point out that if you misdirect the boss onto a mage at the start... the mage won't live... so you can always off a problem player from the start! Or for kicks and giggles.

Ready Check: Guide to Naxxramas (Thaddius) {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 9:24AM Our biggest struggle is the jump....

There's nothing more aggravating than the same three people who spend the whole fight failing at the jump.... esp. ones who have skills that will help them have a NO FAIL jump.

The Queue: That's a lot of J names {WoW}

Jan 19th 2009 4:16PM Paladins make terrible single target tanks, if there are other mobs even in the vicinity. If you're doing an aoe damage spell, even w/o RF, you could be accidentally pulling other mobs. Unless its wiping people for you to pull aggro, then who cares??

If you're on a boss, toss in some craptastic healing. It'll slow down your aggro.

Officers' Quarters: Not peons, but just as lazy {WoW}

Jan 19th 2009 1:35PM When I ran a guild I did something a bit different with inactive officers.

I created a rank between vet members and officers. They had all the guild control ranks of a vet except for the addition of seeing and talking in officer chat.

Not to over simplify but that seemed to work, and then where I saw people filling in the gaps these people left they were slowly promoted.

People don't like change... however a demotion to basically what they are w/o losing anything... really in the grand scheme isn't change. And they were always extended an opportunity to come back once they had more time -- since it seemed they were lacking the time needed to dedicate it to helping run the guild.


Officer positions should never be a set in stone. And if a long term dedicated member leaves over losing the privs of promoting and demoting people... tbh they weren't worth your time. Guilds are shaped more or less by the people in them... not what rank you are in the guild...

Email realm status alerts {WoW}

Jan 14th 2009 9:32AM I'd be very very careful about using your registered email for a site like this. It sounds like an attempt to get some registered emails to begin the hacking process.....
