Aug 19th 2009 5:47PM They had a lot of problems at the beginning, but the last couple of months, it's been unmerged accounts that have been having all the issues.
Aug 19th 2009 5:21PM "maybe the 5 key have a raised dot..."
Whoops, should be a "had" there. I can't call someone else out on their spelling and have errors in my post, now can I?
Aug 19th 2009 5:18PM Razr is a phone. The gaming equipment company is Razer, as their logo in your picture shows. Sorry for being a grammar Nazi :D
Although, it is spelled strangely already (Razer as opposed to Razor), so I can see where it's easy to get mixed up.
I hate myself for this comment, but I'll contribute as well. I own a Razer DeathAdder, and it is a wonderful mouse, but I'm not good with bindings other than 1 through 6, my two side mouse buttons, and a couple of Shift modified oPie bindings. This would probably help me not be so awful in PvP... I can't exactly tell from the pictures, but it would be very handy if they had maybe the 5 key have a raised dot on it, as most keyboards do with "F" and "J" otherwise, I could see myself screwing up which button I pressed quite often.
Aug 18th 2009 12:15PM Farproc, I believe you can strafe by holding down your right mouse button and using A and D.
It could take some getting used to, but it works.
Aug 12th 2009 2:19PM One difference I have noticed between Horde and Alliance, at least as far as the 29 bracket of PvP goes, is that Horde tends to fight more toward the objectives, while some Alliance will take every chance they can get to kill us as we resurrect at our graveyard. When I see Horde starting to camp graveyards, I tell them to stop and back up, and just kill them after they've had the chance to prepare, since we're obviously going to win and there's no need to ruin their day. And in AB, they like to come out of their GY one at a time anyway, so it's not exactly necessary to GY camp. I've been GY camped when it's 0-0 in WSG though, but I'm only going off of what I've seen, so I could be wrong. I have played 48 WSG and 36 AB's in that bracket, if anyone was wondering about my sample size.
This might have something to do with the fact that my team, the Horde has won 58 out of those 84 battles, but that's how lower brackets have been forever.
Aug 9th 2009 9:17PM I have a 28 shaman that I have been PvPing with for a few levels, and I found the shock range increase to be simply amazing, particularly with frost shock for grabbing the FC. A yard or two difference has lost my team the flag return in WSG a couple of times, and that's less likely to happen to me now.
Aug 7th 2009 4:41PM The spacing in learning new moves is what's important. Sure, you don't learn exactly what to do in raid, but you understand the mechanics and/or gimmicks on some of your moves. Try making a premade of a different class on a PTR. You can read elitist jerks all you want, but you'll still be a bit shaky when it comes to actually trying to attack the dummy.
For example, leveling as a hunter, when you get feign death at level 30, you aren't overwhelmed because you only have that and a couple other moves to worry about. You get the "feel" for that move, knowing whether you have to stay down, when it will get resisted, and so on. This isn't a big deal when it comes to raiding, sure, but the better you know your abilities, the better you are. Even if it is something indirect like a split second of hesitation because you don't have the feel of your moves, it will hurt your DPS.
Aug 7th 2009 2:58PM Yeah, I suppose so. But it seems like this letter would've been written before ToC was out. I play both a resto druid and a hunter, and playing my hunter is a lot less nervewracking... if I were to completely stop DPSing for whatever reason, nothing but a number would change. If I completely stopped healing, it wouldn't end well. Oh, and, at least on my healer, I tend to apologize for ever minor thing that goes wrong during the run.
Aug 7th 2009 2:08PM Also, what heroic was it? I'm trying to think of one where a single DPS can cause a wipe. They're no Thaddius.
Aug 7th 2009 2:05PM Just ask a PuG at the beginning of the run, tell them you're not that well geared. They'll probably be OK with it, and if they're not, then find a new PuG. If you say something at the beginning of the run, nobody can bitch about it later.
