Spiritual Guidance: Shadow Priest 101, page 3 {WoW}

Mar 9th 2011 4:13PM Actually, maybe it would be more helpful if I put up a list of concerns.

1) With trash packs, should I attempt to spread DOTs and then use searing pain or just one on one the enemies?

2) When I hit Dark Evangelism, should I refresh my DOTs, are is the buff applied to the ones already on the boss?

3) Shadow orbs; I don't notice them. ever. Should I?

4) Is there any time during a fight where it is appropriate to cast Mind Spike that isn't the opening?

Breakfast Topic: Achievements that should have been {WoW}

Feb 1st 2011 9:49AM 100 Companion pet achievement! Just hit that last night with my Singing Sunflower

Love the idea of dancing with every class/race combo.

Maybe an achievement for getting every flight point in the game under the exploration tab.

Rare/named mob spawn kills for old world content (2 separate achivs)

"Master of Spatial Awareness" - collect x teleports caster items. I have 7

Kill one of every beast family.

Kill 100,000 of every creature type (humanoid, undead, beast, demon, etc)

"Unda Da Sea" Stay underwater for 1 hour without going afk or dying. Does not apply to Vash'jir.

"Man Vs Food" - eat every food in the game

Guild experience changes in patch 4.0.6 {WoW}

Jan 13th 2011 5:30PM I'm in a guild and don't really have any problem with regular or heroic dungeon runs. I'm enjoying the challenge and my guild is having a blast.

However. I started off WoW very much as a lone wolf and for years I liked it that way, so I can sympathize with the people who aren't into the MM part of the game. I mean, c'mon. Give them a chance to get some epics, even if it takes forever. Tol Barad Peninsula is a pretty good example of catering to loners. Good daily quests you can solo for some great rewards (eventually). But what about factions like Hyjal that have no dailies? And chaos orbs. Pretty frustrating to do the long profession grind by yourself and then have no way to get your best recipes outside of grouping.

Officers' Quarters: The guild achievement controversy {WoW}

Dec 13th 2010 6:10PM @Wild Colors:
You shouldn't let that discourage you from doing other achievements. We're doing the classic dungeons tonight starting with Rage Fire Chasm... naked. Or in RP gear. Personally I'll be dual wielding a [url=]Bouquet of Orange Marigolds[/url] and [url=]Spring Flowers[/url].

@ loop_not_defined:
I'm not even sure how to respond to such a useless reply.

Officers' Quarters: The guild achievement controversy {WoW}

Dec 13th 2010 2:45PM My guild is rather small (15 warm bodies with 2-3 chars each), but I gotta say the guild achievement and leveling features were THE feature I was most excited about in Cataclysm. We have 2 hardcore achievement hunters, some achievement enthusiasts, and some people who never open the achievements tab. I do em for fun, but not everyone feels that way. The incentive to do achievements for guild XP was so fun for the short time we had it. Now? I doubt I'll ever get a Black Temple guild run organized.

Status update on current patch 4.0.1 issues {WoW}

Oct 13th 2010 1:42PM I usually do HHoR as a guild run and the AOE brute force method has worked since our guild started getting ICC10 gear. The only target we would focus down is the priest; everything else gets AOEd into submission (concussive blow, shockwave, and HoJ are usually the only CC; spell reflect anything that isn't flamestrike, interrupt that).
But, I saw considerably less threat held by a few thunderclaps last night, even with Blood and Thunder.

Status update on current patch 4.0.1 issues {WoW}

Oct 13th 2010 1:25PM Ah, thanks very much Saeadame. I only ran one heroic on my shadow priest last night and it was getting late by the time I finished. There was just so much to think about last night.

Status update on current patch 4.0.1 issues {WoW}

Oct 13th 2010 1:18PM My guildies and I queued up for a heroic and out of everything we could get, we got HHoR.
I play a prot warrior and I had a lot of trouble keeping AOE threat going on the waves (ie: mages kept dying). I guess we're supposed to switch out of the AOE everything mode already?

Otherwise, my single target threat is stronger than ever.

Also, I noticed a lot of my ilvl 264 badge gear and my Glyph of Indomitability were missing their bonus armor and my physical damage reduction is down to 61% from 69%! yikes! Festergut will be interesting this week.

Also, my shadow priest never saw a shadow orb or shadowy apparition. Not sure what was going on there.
