The Queue: I don't know {WoW}

Sep 13th 2011 11:41AM Form a raid with your alt! This involves a friend and about two minutes of their time. Here's how you do it.

1. Log on to an alt and invite your friend to party.
2. Convert to raid and promote your friend to leader.
3. Log off of your alt and onto your main.
4. Have your friend invite you and pass leader to your main.
5. Your friend can now leave.

You will be in a party with your offline alt now. I do this all the time to run old raids for kicks.

Ready Check: Dealing with a weak healer {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2011 3:45PM Overhealing isn't a bad thing as long as you have enough mana to finish the fight assuming the rest of the raid is not taking un-necessary damage or extending the fight longer than it should be due to DPS or mechanic fails.

It depends on the FIrelands bosses. I have found Shannox to be very healer friendly as long as you watch your feet. IMO Beth'Tilac is a resto druid's fight to be well over the other healers if you are healing on the ground level and using Efflorescence and Wild Growth wisely.

Wow-heroes is the meter we use to see if someone has the gear for Firelands. I personally use AskMrRobot to optimize my toons.

Sep 2nd 2011 1:50PM On the subject of meters:
Yeah, the healing done and hps meters are sub-optimal for evaluating healers. But you can tell if there is a problem if you see someone only doing 20% or lower each boss fight. It also depends on the encounter. You can break down the heals in most tracking add-ons to see what spells the healer is using the most to determine problems. For example a druid is casting a high percentage of regrowths instead of nourish.

You can even go so far as to upload your log into WorldOfLogs and set up filters to see the actual timeline of casts and if they are utilizing the procs correctly. Not enough? Use WoL to compare your healer's performance against someone that is successfully downing the content with the same class and spec. WoL's tools are an excellent source of information if you take the time to utilize them.

And yes, we see every time you silly DPS are standing in the bad and make fun of you behind your backs. :>

Shifting Perspectives: Balance druid leveling in Cataclysm, page 2 {WoW}

Dec 11th 2010 1:51PM I made some wowhead profiles (talents only) based on Tyler's recommendations per the level breakout in the article. There are some assumptions made based on the entire article. You can see up to level 80 here: http://www.wowhead.com/user=Ozonekiller#profiles

The level 84 spec is here: http://www.wowhead.com/talent#0IrGdR0RkoucZMcz

Level 85 should see you retalenting based on your needs. I feel that is outside the scope of this article personally.
