Mar 28th 2012 4:03PM my coolest uses so far are sandstone drake mounted on a sandstone drake :)
or large scale boomkins from all the raids mages - then all pop mirror image :)
the most ive seen is 4 real boomkins with 5 mages and 15 images
25 man raid we almost got up to 25 boomkins wandering round
Mar 25th 2012 10:05PM sidenote on the evocation non CD
if it stays like it is atm its going to be odd
15% mana + 45% over 6 sec
so you cast and wait 2 sec (1.5 sec GCD so might as well) and get 30% from 2
or full is 60% from 6
50% more mana/sec from doing a partial cast
and assuming arc mastery stays the same the fact its best used half way will be even better because itll keep you more topped off and more mastery bonus
having a spell thats best half used is a bit odd tbh - and badly designed
Mar 25th 2012 9:55PM on the subject of shamans.....
i so wanted a self ressing tank :)
Mar 25th 2012 9:17PM its not used as resto much because of the higher mana cost
as arcane itd be stupid
but as fire/frost with no mana issues and evo rarely used except healing.....
its a big powerfull heal that you can spam evo into
if we are gonna get a heal its the perfect one
and for warlocks with there damage/heals to do with pet and mana taping - a half dot one suits them better
its odd - but its thought out odd
and itd help with group makeups - guild raid group thats 1 healer shourt - pop a bonus healer and handle it a bit funny
Mar 24th 2012 7:48PM you mean kind of like alysrazor is atm?
you get one stupid damage burst so save it for that
and its crits count and run out so cast it 10 sec b4 end of buff
and etc etc
ive had them hit stupid amounts and stupid % of damage - there already something we pay attention to - itll just be up to us to decide how much now

"Can some one explain exactly what happens to the aspects after deathwing dies?"
"Check out our Know Your Lore on this very subject. Shinae in the comments summed it up pretty well (and I think we're beyond spoiler range for Cataclysm): "Simply put, the Aspects sacrificed their immortality in order to kill Deathwing."
so they sacrificed there immortality... but not there lives
are we likely to see them again in mortal form?
Feb 13th 2012 2:48PM oh and the greater good - so tired of this tbh
anytime a wipes called i see people still standing there dpsing 4 yards from a huge patch of fire - and a warrior or shadowpreast running out with the mages/rogues/hunters (im a mage)
wasting 2 mins per wipe on a 3h raid = 2-3 less attempts depending on boss length
and how many last shot kills have we all seen? :)
Feb 13th 2012 2:42PM hooray!
not liking the jump shot though (im a fire mage) strafings the way to go for me
point at the boss - turn 90 degrees - run sideways constantly shooting
Nov 18th 2011 9:43PM from the page "My casual raiding team had a progression wipe to Staghelm at 20k health last night."
my best tip if your a dps with mass survival - if its looking close
drop agro -> hit your biggest survival ->pray on dots
the number of times ive used invis when the first person died - and hit IB when the boss finaly turned at me - and dots kill
its kinds funny tbh
Nov 13th 2011 11:54PM "Ask any bear who's tried to Rebirth a healer between boss swings and gotten whacked how much utility they have."
this is why i carefully practised it
things like rotface's spray - 5 seconds on a channel - no swings - THATS when you cast BR
my bear was awsome at it - i was known for my tanking BR's in guild
