The Queue: Rolling the bones {WoW}

Jan 30th 2012 11:34AM Priest t13 4 set for disc gives a chance for a double rapture bonus, how do I know I'm not missing out on this bonus if I have two shields active and breaking at the same time (like heroic morchoks stomp)? When is the bonus decided, on bubble cast or rapture proc, seeing as the bubble itself is affected in the whole bonus I would assume it's on cast. But if they break at the same time and rapture goes on ICD which might I get?

Nov 18th 2011 5:57PM @MattLow I don't know if you use any sort of healing addon, but my person tool of choice is VuhDo, and it shows you incoming heals on a target. Playing with an Rdruid and Rsham when I que up a heal i see a slightly faded green sliver attach to the larger green bar of health of the target, and if the bar grows again before my heal goes off, than I know they have also que'd up a heal on that target. VuhDo approximates the heal of course and doesn't anticipate crits.

Aug 17th 2011 12:52PM It is possible to duo the first boss, actually pretty simple too. Myself (holy priest) and a friend (mut rogue) did it just the other day. Just make sure you have a dps who can kill adds, and someone to heal razorgore if needed.

WoW Rookie: How to record game footage on a Mac {WoW}

Aug 4th 2011 3:25PM Lately I've been having a bug where when I play back my recorded movie it has the mouse flipped along a horizontal axis on the middle of the screen. It's the only thing affected, and it looks weird clicking my healing bars when my mouse is up above everything else. Any idea how to fix this or even why it's happening?

Encrypted Text: Learning the rogue virtues {WoW}

May 11th 2011 2:33PM I've been leveling my rogue as sub and doing purely pvp. He's about 63 now, the best way to insta shot a nice weak kneed clothy (or even druid :D ) is to stealth, premeditation, shadowstep, ambush, (pending your talents go into a hemo), eviscerate. This pumps out about 3-4k damage in less than 2 seconds.

That's a bad way to go about things though, it'll insta gib a half health clothy and things like that. But someone whose prepared or quick to react, you may wanna stealth, premed, shadowstep, garrote, hemo, rupture, and then go from there possibly with defensive cd's or if your glyphed for gouge you can use that and /dance with them as they bleed out.

Same-faction battlegrounds to be available for testing on the PTR {WoW}

Mar 31st 2011 11:13PM Whats really interesting is how they change the map to suit this.

No orc in his/her right mind would get resources for the Silverwing Sentinels, and vice versa.

So will they mirror the BG maps? New maps entirely? Neither of those solutions seem particularly simple to do.

Interesting...

Know Your Lore, Tinfoil Hat Edition: Silence of the Titans {WoW}

Feb 6th 2011 8:33PM The Old Gods are tied to the survival of Azeroth as a whole, yet to date we've killed (i say killed, they died right? and even if merely faded or something, if their death causes destruction, surely their harm causes something?) 2 Old Gods. If this process continues, will Azerothians bring about the downfall of Azeroth by destroying Old Gods?

Jan 25th 2011 7:34PM alliance on kel'thuzad eh? way to be part of the gang :P just kidding, please be nice to us hoardies (who be stealin yo tol barad these days eh?)

i play alot of 2's as a disc priest and my partner is an enh shaman. were somewhat experienced in arena's, yet dont really take the time to check out things like arenajunkies for team comps/strategies. has anyone experienced a team comp they personally thought were overwhelming? my comp is unusual, it has low defense against double physical dps teams, yet we still find a positive w/l ratio most weeks. is the state of arena's atm in 3's and 5's similar in that unusual comps are finding some degree of success?
