The Daily Quest: Of Rogue PvP, Hunter macros and the Flying Bear maneuver {WoW}

Mar 20th 2009 9:33PM I look forward to trying out the FBM. Though, the intro in this article makes it sound like you'll have to wait till 3.1 for the maneuver to work, which is totally not true. It'll just be more useful then, what with the 360 degree swipe that will immediately follow.

You can, nonetheless, use it now. It's a pretty snazzy way to get to the far side of a group of mobs if you're planning on tanking on the outside (that is, with the mobs between you and the rest of the group...like this: ranged....melee..mobs....you)

Side note: I'm proud to state that the bear in that video is my guild master. Blood and Thunder!!

Pronouncing character names correctly {WoW}

Feb 5th 2009 9:50PM Seeing as how my name's stupidly easy to pronounce, I don't really have problems with it. My biggest gripe comes from people who use their hearthstone and say "I'm gonna hurth." Nope. It's definitely pronounced Harth.

Secondly, I once ran an instance with a guy named Queerquinn. Now, we all know that most people shorten longer names to whatever is the least nonsensical string of characters at the beginning, right? So the logical (and also very funny) way to say this guy's name is just to call him 'queer.' However, he made a GIGANTIC deal about it. "For christ's sakes, please use the full @%$ name! Jeez!"

Needless to say, out of spite for choosing a silly name like that, the other four of us just kept calling him queer. Fun times.

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Priest {WoW}

Jan 6th 2009 8:09AM My priest, Alandre, on Venture Co. belongs to a community of priests called the Order of the Narrow Path (which I made up and am the only member of =P). This order, like many of the priests who've posted before, and David himself, believes that Light and Shadow are like Yin and Yang. They are both necessary to each other.

However, they also believe that these forces are as important as the elements which Shamans serve and bring to bear in shaping reality as a whole. To fully realize what it is to be a priest, one must not only utilize the Light, but also, as the Forsake like to say, embrace the Shadow.

The Narrow Path, as they see it, is the precarious balance between these two opposed forces, and thus a path that not everyone would travel.

On a somewhat related note, this order came about from my interactions with a fellow blood elf in a chance world RP encounter in Silvermoon, during which he mentioned that his guild was opposed to the use of Shadow magic (as well as warlockery and the like), being a guild based on shamanism. My reply was that it is often necessary to draw upon the power of shadow to bring about the ends that a follower of the Light would strive for. His response was "That is a narrow path indeed," which then became the name of my priestess's belief system. Because of this order, I was able to not only slightly alter the guild leader's (character) position on the use of Shadow, but I was also invited to join the guild.

At the moment, Alandre is an Initiate of the Narrow Path (being level 17), and later she may become an Acolyte, Priestess, Bishop, or Archbishop thereof. Maybe even Cardinal.

If any of you like the idea, feel free to use it and change it as you will. My only request is that you get together with me should you choose to roll with it on my server, so that we don't have more than one group bandying about calling themselves the same thing with drastically different practices and beliefs. =)

I'm also more than open to suggestions as to how I might improve or expand upon this idea, and if you ever see me around on VeCo, feel free to say hello. =)

Forum post of the day: A Rogue without a cause {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 2:14AM There are several things you're leaving out. First, like hunters, we have another misdirect, which is good for not only initial threat generation, but also increases the tank's threat gen as well.
Also, FoK + BF = HAX. Blade Flurry procs off your main hand EVERY TIME it hits during FoK. That's 3 per mob. So, if you TotT --> BF + Killing Spree --> Fan, you're probably going to be topping the chart during a 3-4-pull if you're geared approximately equally with the other dps in the group.

I know that this is only once every two minutes. But, if you manage your cooldowns properly, you KSpr every minute, AR every 4 minutes (you have the glyph, right?), you TotT every 30 seconds, etc. In my guild, our rogues are our best melee dps right now, and we're equivalently geared to our other melees.

As it's been said before, take the player, not the class. A rogue that knows what they're doing isn't going to be too terribly far behind in the meters.
