Is my shadow priest's DPS high enough? {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2012 12:21AM I've never understood why people would want to make a macro where all you had to do was push 1 over and over again. The number one reason I play a shadow priest as my main is that it is complicated. I like to be challenged and to have to always be on my toes watching dots, cool downs, procs, etc. If you want to play a caster that only has one button to push reroll as an arcane mage.

15 Minutes of Fame: The AFK Tavern, where everybody knows your name {WoW}

Sep 1st 2011 7:39PM I just went by this place for the first time last Friday. Looks like a pretty cool place, but unfortunately it is kind of not near anything. I live about 20-30 minutes away, but its not in the main part of Everett. Its south of downtown, about half way between Boeing and downtown Everett. So its definately a destination restaurant, not a place you can stop in at while doing something else. That being said, my friends and I are definately planning on stopping in and trying it out.

Patch 4.1 hotfixes for April 27 {WoW}

Apr 28th 2011 2:45PM I did the same thing. Took me a couple times of MCing a Flame Caster to realize not to use the AoE. The first time the whole instance pulled the tank blamed one of the other dps, lol. Its nice to know I can use that spell again though, because its pretty damn cool.

Apr 26th 2011 3:55PM At what point does Blizzard having "unanticipated," to quote Nethaera's blue post, delays every patch day, become anticipated delays? Lol, they should just say realms will be up at 5pm pacific time instead of 11am, and then if they don't run into delays they can make everyone happy by being done early. I don't think anybody expected the realms to be up at 11am and I'm not personally upset at the delays, but I can see the frustration that is caused by Blizzard dangling a carrot in front of everyone, hour by hour, all day.

The OverAchiever: Mountain O' Mounts in 5-man dungeons {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 10:31PM I highly recommend never running any alt through a dungeon/raid that drops a rare mount as most likely you will get the mounts on those toons instead of your main you are trying to get them on. I got the Blue Proto Drake on my pally on his first run through Heroic UP when he just turned 80. I don't know how many times I ran Heroic UP on my shadow priest main back in wrath, but I've been solo farming it semi regularly for the last couple months or so and have never seen it drop. I also had the VoA mammoth drop for my shammy (and won the roll) on his first VoA late in wrath. In the 60-70 odd VoA's i ran on my priest I never once saw it drop. I also regularly farmed the ZG mounts, and still farm for the Ravon Lord, Riverdare, Hawkstrider, and the mount from Kara to no avail.

The Queue: This dog {WoW}

Apr 10th 2011 8:26PM Is there any reasoning for having multi-class tier tokens instead of just having one type of tier token that every class can use? I'm pretty sure I'll never see my tier shoulders or helm as I have to compete with 5 other players in my 10 man for the same pally/priest/warlock tokens which never seem to drop anyways.

The Queue: A fel dilemma {WoW}

Apr 6th 2011 11:39PM Shadow Priest cc sucks? Mind Control is the best CC in the game if used correctly. It still baffles me that tanks either don't want to use it or forget that shadow priests have it. And in terms of marking my MC targets I either use diamond or circle, usually diamond.

Apr 6th 2011 11:31PM I wouldn't put Shadow Priests on that list. We don't build orbs to cast anything, meaning we don't have a spell that you can only use once you have a shadow orb (or 3). All shadow orbs do is increase damage done by the amount of orbs we have up when we cast mind blast or mind spike, and by our dots after we use up an orb.

Blizzard's April fools introduce you to Crabby the dungeon helper and more {WoW}

Apr 1st 2011 8:01PM Lol, the Patch Notes for patch 4.1.11 are absolutely hilarious. My favorite has to be:

Races:

-The Worgen “sniff” sound has been replaced by Rebecca Black’s hit single, Friday. The song will play in its entirety. Every time

Spiritual Guidance: Raiding Blackwing Descent as a shadow priest, part 2 {WoW}

Mar 31st 2011 8:26PM On the green vial phase I don't bother with mind sear. Its still too low on the damage, imo, to use. I start multi dotting shadow word: pain on each abberation about 5 seconds or so before the green phase starts, earlier on the second green phase as we have to stop dps on the boss for quite some time to insure a second green phase. That way when the adds lose their damage reduction buff they already have a dot ticking away. Then I mind spike/instant cast mind blast/shadow word: death adds one by one until all nine are gone. Using this method I'm usually number one on add dps after the fight.

And as for the prime subjects during the burn phase, I had one agro me last night and pound on me for the entire burn phase and never noticed my health go down at all. So either they don't do much damage or my healers were spot on keeping me healed/shielded. Obviously don't attack one, but don't freak out if one fixates on you.
