Shifting Perspectives: The unbearable suckhood of pugging {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 10:49AM Clearly, the correct answer is Starfire Espresso.

Hehehehe. I go through like four stacks a week *twitch* CAN YOU TELL?

Dec 22nd 2010 1:52PM Why use brackets at all? It's not like we need to save time; we have all expansion. Just use Round Robin.

Dec 17th 2010 3:00PM If you stay close to the recommended levelling curve (i.e. fighting mobs within +/- 1 level of you) you don't need much hit at all (it's base 4% miss for a same-level mob, I think?). Taking a few pieces of gear with spirit will easily be enough.

Don't expect to find mail caster gear that explicitly has hit rating on it ever again. It's all spirit now, baby. Blizzard did this to reduce the number of items they needed to create -- as a result we share pretty much all our gear, with the exception of trinkets and some weapons, with our resto brethren. Makes dual-speccing resto easy! :)

You can probably expect to start replacing your T10 in Deepholm or Uldum, depending on what ilvl set you managed to get.

Dec 17th 2010 9:26AM Also, Grounding Totem for the same reasons! Between the Stoneclaw shield, Wind Shear, and Grounding Totem, you can negate a lot of incoming damage.

And you might be suprised to find what you can Purge. The "Swell" effect on the Tainted Sentries in Throne of the Tides is a good example of something that, when removed, will make trivial an otherwise healing-intensive pack of trash. Various shields on assorted creatures (and bosses!) are good targets as well (Bubble Shield on mobs in Throne of the Tides, Veil of Sky on Isiset in Halls of Origination).

Dec 17th 2010 9:17AM I think that Glyph of Stoneclaw totem (Major) deserves a mention. A 16k shield every 20 seconds is awesome both for leveling (most mobs will never break it, saving you healing/drinking time) and for instancing (save your healer's precious mana!)

Does anyone know if this shield scales in any way?

The Queue: 6 days and counting {WoW}

Dec 1st 2010 2:16PM I doubt that this will change. I think the point of the achievement is the pop culture reference, not the difficulty.

Nov 30th 2010 2:38PM Yes, they have been retuned.
