Reviewing the Razer Naga Epic mouse: 12 buttons you never knew you wanted {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 8:25PM I recently purchased the Razer DeathAdder Left Hand Edition from their site and it broke within 2 months. I've been emailing them trying to get a replacement but they haven't replied to me in 4 damn days after me sending them all sorts of ridiculous info.

This company has horrible customer service. Be warned.

The Light and How to Swing It: Deciphering holy paladin talents {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 3:39AM It really depends on the fights you are doing. Some boss abilities don't trigger Blessed Life.

I still find the Blessed Life talent super useful though!

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/1puja5f4kgflsbz6/details/7/

That's a (complete) log of mine from a couple weeks ago where Blessed Life out performed Tower of Radiance. Then if you look at the next weeks parse Tower of Radiance out performs Blessed Life. It all depends on the boss mechanics and if they trigger Blessed Life or not.

The Light and How to Swing It: Cataclysm 101 for protection paladins {WoW}

Dec 16th 2010 1:23AM I'm QQ'ing because of the constant massive changes Holy Paladins keep getting. The changes to Holy the other day pretty much force us to again learn how to play a different way/style. At some point there's got to be some continuity.

I'm just tired of having to relearn my class every patch. It sucks.

The Light and How to Swing It: Cataclysm 101 for protection paladins {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 4:26PM I hope you plan on rewriting your Holy Paladin article from the other day after the craptastic nerfs to Holy. They pretty much ruined everything you talked about in your article. Not that you'd want to considering the spec plays like crap now.

The Light and How to Swing It: How to heal before Cataclysm {WoW}

Oct 25th 2010 1:03AM You are correct Sir. I'm having no problems Healing with the changes. When I'm on top of my game I'm up there/on top with the Druid, Shaman, and Priests. All very close.

I do not see a single problem *since* the hotfix was rolled out for Holy.

Servers are coming up [updated x3] {WoW}

Oct 12th 2010 2:34PM They can take all the time they want. The 4.0.1 patch is taking ages to install anyway! It *might* be done by the time they get the servers working.

The Light and How to Swing It: Why is the mana gone? {WoW}

Sep 7th 2010 12:10AM SamLowry: 15k hits are nothing when tanks are going to have 100k+ health, and DPS/Healers are going to have 70-80k HP. Have you seen the Stamina they've put on all the gear at end game? It's insane.

We'll be fine. ^_^


Al: Yes you're lazy. You should spend time learning how to play your class properly before spouting off how someone else is wrong when they clearly aren't. Then you say "Show me an actual boss fight, not a DPS race." when you could have looked in a couple seconds using the link I gave you in the previous post. But you know.. keep on trolling!


Why would they give us an ability to melee for mana if it wasn't meant to be used?

The Light and How to Swing It: Why is the mana gone? {WoW}

Sep 6th 2010 6:14AM I told you that you could check all my other parses on World of Logs. But since you're to lazy I'll help you out:

Lich King: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/af7tdlai2dy3h6oq/details/3/?s=9485&e=11378#tab-auras

Putricide: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/af7tdlai2dy3h6oq/details/3/?s=2476&e=2763#tab-auras

Deathwhisper H: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/84b3b9405y8nfsdw/details/5/?s=5342&e=5696#tab-auras

Everyone of those I'm top Healing/eHPS, with Seal of Wisdom as my top mana gainer. Those fights are not gimmicks for Paladins either, requiring lots of movement etc. There are others too like Morrowgar, Sindragosa, Rotface that are the exact same thing if you want to look at those as well.

You can keep denying it all you want, but if you're not using Seal of Wisdom as a Paladin you're not playing your class to the fullest extent possible. You just lose out on too much mana return.

Now, let me say again: it's not possible on EVERY fight, there are some fights it's not possible to use Seal of Wisdom on, but they're few and far between.

Blood Coucil/Queen, and Saurfang are the only ones in ICC10/25 it's not possible to do on, at least not with out putting yourself or other people at risk of dying. And Dreamwalker for obvious reasons.

The Light and How to Swing It: Why is the mana gone? {WoW}

Sep 6th 2010 2:37AM Yes it's obvious. They gave us a spell that gives us a ton of mana back from meleeing. How hard is that to grasp? Have you even tried to do it?

I dunno about you but my Flash of Light is sub 1 second in a raid, and my Holy Light is 1.2-1.4 seconds, I'd say those are very short cast times. You just stand next to the boss with auto attack on, while casting heals. In between heals you'll melee.

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/af7tdlai2dy3h6oq/details/3/?s=1313&e=1549#tab-auras

Look under "Power Gains."
55,108 mana back in 3 minutes and 55 seconds from Seal of Wisdom. Almost 4 TIMES as much as Replenishment. Oh look, I did 7.3k eHPS too, more than a super geared Shaman and Disc Priest, all while *gasp* meleeing between heals on HARDMODE Festergut! BLASPHEMY right?!

Sounds pretty awesome to me! You can look at all the boss fights on all my parses. Pretty sure Seal of Wisdom will be #1 on all my Power Gains except for a select few fights.

It makes a HUGE difference. And you can do it too!

Sep 6th 2010 12:57AM Some of the replies to this thread are crazy.

You SHOULD be a melee Paladin already.

If you haven't been using Seal of Wisdom (soon to be Seal of Insight) to melee on a boss/mobs to get mana back you shouldn't be playing a Paladin. It's pretty much required on a lot of hard mode fights. It gives you back a TON of mana with all our haste (on end game gear,) our melee attacks are just over 1 second. Procs like mad. Learn to do it now and you wont have many problems with mana come Cataclysm. Seriously.

And those of you worrying about AoE fights where we shouldn't be in close proximity to bosses need not worry considering our huge boost in Health coming with Cataclysm. There was just a blue thread (http://blue.mmo-champion.com/t/26560850176/my-holy-paladin-feedback/ - last paragraph) stating that healers shouldn't have to worry about topping off players straight away, or even worry about them getting 2 shot by AoE. Plus, on fights I can't melee the boss, there's usually something there I can hit a few times every now and then.

Quit being worry warts, and get excited about all the other cool changes we're getting.
