Officers' Quarters: Directing your cash flow {WoW}

Officers' Quarters: Directing your cash flow {WoW}

Feb 28th 2011 10:29AM I recognize where you're coming from , but it's that very idea of "raid half the week, prepare for raiding the other half of the week" that makes raiding look unappealing for a lot of people. I have other stuff I want to do during the week.

One idea for compromise: If the guild uses a point system for distributing loot, incorporate flasks into the system. You can 'buy' flasks off the guild bank, but it means you have a little less for loot than the raiders who bring their own stuff. If you want to give a perk to officers, let them be able to take flasks off the guild bank without spending points.

The Light and How to Swing It: Beacon of Light best practices {WoW}

Jun 27th 2010 4:29PM Also, it's worth mentioning that putting Beacon on a Paladin tank is a bad choice. Their primary source of mana is from healing, and at least in my experience it doesn't appear that Beacon healing counts. If you have two tanks and one's a Pally, Beacon the other and heal the Pally directly. If you're in a 5-man and your tank is a Pally, Beacon yourself or the most troublesome DPS (Rogues, I'm looking at you).

I could be wrong about this, but Pally tanks I've Beaconed are always mana-starved, and when I flip the Beacon they do fine.

Jun 27th 2010 4:01PM That would be extremely helpful. Right now my choices for healing on the move as I understand them are A) Holy Shock, B) Holy Shock, and C) Flash of Light IF Holy Shock crits. As throughput goes, it's kind of paltry. More than a few wipes have happened on Rotface because we had to scatter and run, or I had Mutated Infection during a chaotic part of the fight.

Jun 27th 2010 3:58PM The logs screenshot at the top of the column shows Judgment of Light accounting for 11.4% of the healing done. I don't think anyone's forgetting about it.

Breakfast Topic: Holiday boss in the dungeon finder is the best thing ever {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2010 9:39AM I think there's a pretty good case to be made that heroics are NOT where fresh 80s should be learning their class. Either learn it as you level or use the normal instances. I'm putting together a tanking set for my Druid, and when I go to learn the basics of Bear, you can bet I'm not going to be doing it in heroics where all the DPS will likely outgear me by miles, but in normals where the enemies are easier and the teammates aren't uber.
