Jun 11th 2010 11:59AM Just to throw in my two cents, I made a build to reach into Mental Agility.
May 17th 2010 5:58PM As an ex-hunter who currently tanks lowbie dungeons as a bear, I wholeheartedly wish all the hunters whose presence I've been forced to suffer in random dungeons would read this post and take it to heart. I cringe every time I see a hunter added to my group and am shocked at how inept they are at group dynamics. I know there are great hunters out there. I've seen them. I've got some in my guild. But they apparently don't exist below level 30, or at least I haven't found any yet.
Also, lol@ the damage meter. It's true that 99% of the time people only post a damage meter if they're the one at the top. It's also 100% true that damage meters don't matter in the slightest in vanilla dungeons...
Apr 28th 2010 11:20AM I once told someone I was going to the store to get a stack of toilet paper.
Apparently, my brain has adopted "stack" as the primary term for "a full gross."
Mar 10th 2010 5:55PM I believe that was his point -
Raiding = team sport
Not dying + high dps = dead boss + loot
Mar 10th 2010 5:51PM Also keep in mind that shadow priest passive healing only applies to the 5man group they're in, so in a raid setting if you're running more than one glowy purple thing, it's a good idea to split them up for maximum benefit on those passive raid heals. :)
Feb 5th 2010 7:52PM Important note for ranged DPS:
Absolutely no slowing/snaring effects whatsoever will work on the Volatile Oozes. (Hence, as above noted, stacking on the ooze's target is very important.)
However! The Gas Clouds are fair game. Pile on the frost spells, Frost Traps, and my personal favorite, Mind Flay. You might just save the life of one of your buddies who's in a bad corner.
Feb 4th 2010 12:20PM In my personal experience, most of the times where I "have to move" it's because I'm in danger of taking nasty damage, i.e. Marrowgar decided I wanted a closer view of Bonestorm or Rotface's big oozes are squelching past. Using or not using SW:D in these "gotta run" cases can sometimes mean the difference between my favorite shaman saving my life, or me killing myself like a nooblet.
So yeah, for this reason, I'd like to put a little more emphasis on the "if you're able to eat the damage" part of Fox's reply. If you're on the run from baddies, a refresh on DP is probably a better idea.
But yeah, when I'm not in danger of being maimed, I can't deny I'm addicted to the sound SW:D makes. XD
Feb 1st 2010 2:41PM Like Michelle, I became our 10-man guild's "fish girl" when I was playing as a hunter - I wanted to feel like I was contributing more to the raid since I lacked any impressive buffs to give.
This has just continued on since I've made my shadow priest my main. I'm also not even slightly a nurturing person - lol - it's just become "my thing." Even though I now bring priest buffs and a giant bag of enchanting mats on every raid, and even though many of my guildies have fish feasts in their bags too, it's just tradition now. If I didn't drop a feast and yell "FISHEH" things just aren't right.
So yeah, I think for many of us "fish people" it's about a feeling of contribution and pulling your weight, more than anything else. At least that's how it is for me.
