Feb 6th 2011 8:42PM The dungeon master (or at least *a* dungeon master ) for Horde is a goblin called "Steamwheedle Shyster ", dressed in purple, about halfway between the bank and the auction house in Orgrimmar's Valley of Strength.

Would somebody please explain how this is done? My ability to heal has gone into the toilet with this expansion - I am theoretically geared enough to run heroics but can barely keep up with normal 5-man dungeons. I would very much like to know if this is because I'm doing something wrong or because the people I'm running with are doing something wrong. Can I look at World of Logs and find out, for example, how much damage the group SHOULD be taking on a given fight? How do I find out what kind of heals per second or heals per mana numbers somebody at my gear level should be putting out?
Feb 2nd 2011 4:01PM I got Heroic Stonecore as my first-ever Heroic the other day. I should have know something was wrong when I saw the "this dungeon is already in progress" note and zoned in in front of Ozruk to find the floor littered with the corpses of ex-party members.
Two hours, three tanks and about ten DPSers later, I finally gave up. Fun!

Jan 27th 2011 7:33PM Despite having played a long time, I feel like I could use a bit more handholding to (re)learn my role in Cataclysm. I used to be a capable healer and now I suck. Do I suck because I am casting the wrong spells, do I suck because I am geared wrong, or do I just think I suck because I am PUGing with people who suck and demand excessive healing?
I wish I knew.

Warlocks who don't soulstone.
Anybody who can dispell silence but doesn't bother, then complains that I wasn't healing.
