Aug 31st 2010 8:32AM Forgot to mention I'm also a boomkin fanboy, so I've kept up with EJ's theorycrafting & raiding threads for booms (as well as Shifting Perspectives since...2007?), so hearing about eclipse is pretty boring at this point for me, haha. We booms have been trying to fix it since it came out.
Also, you owe us the soloing bit on Attumen for soloing.
As for the stuff I mentioned to squeeze out dps/general awesomeness, I would mention the hunter jumpshot, and how we can use it with Typhoon and dots for PVP/bloodbeast/emergency-ooze kiting.
Maybe pull a Frosthelm and talk about the (not so) good old days, like how utterly useless balance druids were in vanilla (and comically painful to level). Or how horrific Malfurion looks in the beta (though not as bad as Garrosh).
Aug 27th 2010 8:12PM This.
And I'm a raiding fatkin w/ 10/12 hm exp (Sina/LK on call). I would love to hear more about gimmicks to squeeze DPS from fights, fatkin soloing, and discussion about trinkets rather than a block of text about Eclipse (since Blizz won't be changing it till Cata anyways).
Aug 26th 2010 4:46PM My GF has a pally tank, while I was a disco priest.
Her mains are a hunter/boomtree, which leveled with my tanks (dk/warrior)
Next up is her DK tank and my warlock, and then her warlock w/ my resto shammy.
The reason for her tanking? She hates it when I tank b/c I chain-pull the crap outta instances. I'm a very impatient tank, and can do places like DTK in 10-12 mins on the warrior.
So now I heal or dps for her. Usually b/c she's more focused on "tanking things right" she never dies or needs a ton of heals. So I end up dps-ing a lot.
Oh, I'm also an impatient healer. I've panzerkin-d a couple heroics w/ a guildie holydin and a few of my tree pvp pieces b/c it goes faster that way.
Aug 20th 2010 7:04PM Why not something like the fire mage, where living bomb causes an insta-Pyroblast? Except MF procs insta-Wraths (or higher crit% wraths) and IS procs insta-SF, but on different % chances that scale w/ mastery? So you'd have the choice between having an uneclipsed but instant SF during your solar eclipse, for example.
Also, MORE FATKIN PICTURES. Wall of text crits eyes, it's super effective!
Jun 25th 2010 7:46PM Peer pressure is not the reason you play the game. If the raid is peer pressuring you to do something you don't want, then take the time to quit and form a relationship with a guild that is more accepting, i.e. wants you to raid your MS Fatkin and not OS Bearbutt.
Apr 11th 2010 7:36PM Mages, rise up and [Conjure: Graphics Card] for our Archmage!
Apr 10th 2010 12:19PM Archmage pants will have stained his pants from reading the changes.
Apr 6th 2010 6:58PM frost = tanking presence now...so will they make blood presence the new tanking presence?
i don't wanna dps as unholy or frost. i want my big shadow's edge, my passive arpen, and massive physical dmg + mini-cleave. why don't they make the mastery system increase your highest stat (stam or strength) and just increase it x%? or the amount of bonuses to blood/frost/unholy presence?
Apr 2nd 2010 3:16PM Also w/ the resto-theme...
How about a dot called Deathbloom? 3x stacking like lifebloom, with the end burst as a percentage of other dot damage.
