The Queue: Nothing {WoW}

Jan 15th 2011 1:30PM I use the macro for hex / bind elemental, but a shorter version.

#showtooltip
/cast [modifier:shift] Bind Elemental; Hex


very simply, cast it, it casts hex, hold shift and cast it, it casts bind elemental

The Daily Blues {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 9:58AM I have to disagree, i think most guilds would try very hard to stack paladins. Or at least choose their less geared or experienced pallies over other healing classes for the known benefit of their being a great class for healing.

In addition the "advantages for classes" is a concept that blizz is trying to move away from with their "bring the player, not the class" campaign, which is likely what they have in mind every time they nerf a class.

And all this talk about them not attempting to balance classes since TBC? lol what game are you playing? Every patch i've seen come through my good ol' world has changed a class in some way that made it more or less powerful. Blizz does a good job of keeping classes in line, and though everyone knows that guy that roll's the flavor of the month class, most of the population doesn't try to roll a class because its OP, knowing that Blizz will get the fix out eventually.

And im pretty sure they did just come out and say "LOL WE MADE A CLASS TOO POWERFUL, HIT IT WITH THE NERF BAT!" just in a way that doesn't make them sound like a douche. More refined like a company should act *poignantly looks away from Bashiok's blue post and giggles* and said that the nerfs were intentional because the paladins were having to easy of a time

Nov 21st 2010 2:16PM having never had a max lvl character during an expansion release, nor ever having the inclination to experience the "new big thing" a la DK's in wrath and Belves/draenei in bc, what will it be like on launch day? If i create a goblin shaman, will i feel unique and special like mommy always said i was? or will it be a maelstrom (ignore the reference, i dare you) of players crowding quest givers and slaying mobs?

Challenge: answer this question without using the same noun or verb twice. must use at least 4 sentences. I BELIEVE IN YOU!

Oct 28th 2010 12:36PM Having never been completely immersed in WoW for an expansion release, what will rolling a new race on launch day be like? Am i going to feel like a unique player? Or will i be just one among countless "Hey how ya doin?" goblins?

Spiritual Guidance: Do's and don't's of priest healing {WoW}

Jun 20th 2010 5:05PM ^this. SW:D is such an amazingly useful spell, even as a healer! the damage it pops you with is very minimal and hardly threatening in most situations. I love the spell so much i have it bound to my F button, where most of my emergency or fun buttons are (like disengage, shield bash, soulshatter).

as an aside to pvp disc priests, a very powerful tool against mages is SW:D 'ing out of a polymorph! if you can hit the button just before they finish their cast, you'll be damaged by it while polymorphed, and break the CC. mastering this technique is vital in higher tiers, and just plain ol face raping fun in the 1400's (where im happily sitting)

Cheers!

Cataclysm Talent Preview: Enhancement shaman {WoW}

Jun 11th 2010 4:39PM Wow it hadn't even crossed my mind. But this spec is possible with the current iteration of talent points

There's no way Blizz will allow that to stay.... is there?

Raid Rx: Shaking the bad healer label {WoW}

Jun 10th 2010 8:05PM I'm an Addon junkie. The flavor of the month, the new UI, whatever i can get my hands on.

That being said, most of those Addons get deleted within the same day. I mostly just like to try them out. As a healer I found that all the fancy shmancy fun addons i had as a dps just didnt matter anymore. So many things take up space.

It really hit me when i started lagging out of my guilds Blood Queen 25m's. It got to the point where i couldnt even log in. Eventually i moused over the little latency/connection/fps monitor on the toolbar and started disabling all the fat addons that came up untill i could take the heat again. I disabled things like recount, arkinventory, gearscorelite, anything that wasn't essential to my healing setup. I was left with VuhDo, bartender4, and sexymap (cuz come on... its sexy).

TL;DR: sometimes you gotta sacrifice fun addons to get the job done.
