Addon Spotlight: Satrina Buff Frames {WoW}

Jun 18th 2010 5:37AM Well yeah, Satrina buff frames. You make a new frame, call it something simple to remember like 'Target'. You set it to target (as opposed to player, focus etc), then to debuffs (instead of buffs). You now have a frame that will show all debuffs on your target. Now go to filters, set it to whitelist if it isn't already, and add a new filter. This filter should read 'my'. Your frame will now show only your debuffs on the boss. Put the frame where you want it on the screen, you're done.

If this is for something like your dps rotation, you might want to use an add-on like NeedToKnow or TellMeWhen or dot-timers or a hundred other add-ons made specifically for this purpose, as they can also show things like cooldowns, which SBF can't. Just depends on what you specifically want from your add-on.

All the World's a Stage: Maintaining your barriers {WoW}

Jun 14th 2010 8:40AM Good point here. Maybe I missed it, but possibly Wowinsider should do an article on the battlenet 2.0 changes coming in. The privacy issues with this realID thing, which is currently being pushed hard on the starcraft 2 beta, are quite worrying. Any chance of a summary/overview?

Cataclysm Talent Preview: Shadow priests {WoW}

Jun 11th 2010 4:52AM Shadowfiend does a large amount of damage. Basically, you're taking your one dps cd and increasing it from 3 minutes to 5. Also, can't say I've ever felt mana was that much of a problem that I needed focused mind, so mental agility seems like huge overkill.

Breakfast Topic: Dealing with unpleasant players {WoW}

Jun 8th 2010 9:14AM Lvl'ing an alt mage with LFG recently, my group was doing Zul'farrak. Shaman forgot to pull his totems before the stair event, causing the usually leisurely trickle of mobs to ALL aggro right from the start. I'm telling you, if you haven't seen 50+ mobs swarm up the stairs towards you, you haven't lived. Luckily the tank handled it well, I was the only one to die (mage aoe) and the entire party agreed that it was awesome.

Around Azeroth: Attack of the 50-foot stereotype {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2010 11:02AM Any chance you can link a pic of that?

Breakfast Topic: How realms evolve (or don't) {WoW}

May 28th 2010 8:20AM Horde have better pvp racials? Really? Last I checked the human racial was by far the best.

Spiritual Guidance: Troubleshooting your DPS {WoW}

May 28th 2010 4:22AM Shadow-priest dps on the whole still lags behind other hybrids. Take a pally, a DK or a warrior and they can all out-perform us. We beat out boomkins with their scaling problems, but ele shaman power past us no problem. No denying we pwn in pvp though.

Spiritual Guidance: Don't panic {WoW}

May 11th 2010 7:46AM As a disc priest, I can assure you I won't be taking Holy's 'improved death' talent. Unless Blizz actually manage to make spirit an attractive stat in Cata without then deciding that it's OP and nerfing it twice.

ICC DPS analysis by spec {WoW}

May 7th 2010 4:55AM I'm conflicted, on the one hand this made me feel good about my own numbers, on the other I do kind of feel that I'm playing a gimped class. After having come top dps on Valithria in a raid, one of my guildies pointed out that a rogue of ours had got 11.5k on Festergut and that I should try and aim for that. Did some research on WoL and realised that would put me among the top shadow priests in the world, and was probably out of reach. The hybrid tax wouldn't feel so bad if I didn't see other hybrids doing so much better.

Breakfast Topic: Kill them {WoW}

May 2nd 2010 8:55AM Gotta disagree, I don't mind dying as long as it wasn't a cheap kill. Admittedly I'm pretty geared for it now, but even when I do get killed, I feel ok about it as long as I made them work for it. I'm obviously not including rogues here. Bastards.
