Tuesday Morning Post: Patch 4.0.6 PTR edition {WoW}

Jan 18th 2011 11:20AM Problem is that it's a barely noticeable dps increase right now. Also Hammer of Wrath is, for unknown reasons, hitting for 50% of what it does on live. On top of that, inquisition doesn't affect the new mastery yet, which only just about makes up for the loss of Holy Power generation from divine purpose. Parses I have seen have shown somewhere around a 5-7% dps increase, although some people have actually reported a dps loss.

Reader UI of the Week: 2010 roundup {WoW}

Jan 6th 2011 2:49AM I feel ya brother. Just when I think I have everything perfect I say "Huh, maybe I could try and move the target of target frame over here, then put grid over there..." or "Hmm, wonder how I should display my buffs".

Plus I feel like I've sort of ripped off of other people's UI's from searching around for ideas, and it wouldn't feel right without mentioning a couple names.

Maybe one day...

The Light and How to Swing It: New paladin heals in Cataclysm {WoW}

Sep 27th 2010 2:20AM It actually really, really is. Daybreak procs are great, and if you get Daybreak along with a few Eternal Glory procs you feel like you've entered God-mode. It's really exciting.

One thing I keep seeing is that everyone is saying to stand in melee and heal them with HR, use LoD to heal the ranged. I've been doing just the opposite, and it's actually working out pretty well. LoD has a longer range than you might expect, and since the melee is usually grouped up you can almost guarantee hitting them all. Meanwhile, as most healers know, ranged dps pay no concern to their position to others except on specific fights where they have to (like Deathbringer or Fester). Not saying that's there fault specifically, the melee sure wouldn't group up if it weren't necessary for them I'm sure. But ranged tend to wander around, unconcerned whether they're close to the group or not. This means they are rarely ever lined up in a way that makes them easy to hit with LoD, so it's usually easy to just cover them with HR.

Cataclysm Beta: Test Tol Barad with the developers {WoW}

Sep 25th 2010 1:44PM Finally, a chance to get revenge for every nerf they've ever given Paladins.

FOR THE HOLY LIGHT!!!

Cataclysm Beta: Relics changed to carry stats and sockets {WoW}

Aug 15th 2010 2:10PM Agreed. I'm kind of surprised at the number of whiners here.

It's not like these things were massive amounts of OMG THIS IZ SO AWESOME SAUCE-fun anyway. Most of the procs just had 100% uptime so it might as well have said "Equip: 243 SP".

Besides, future Relics won't be class specific, so they don't have to design 12 or 13 unique items each tier of content. They can have tank/melee/caster/healer specific ones. Hell, that will probably give you more options than you had before since a single tier of content could have 2 or 3 different choices of each kind.

Reader UI of the Week: Shikoba's UI {WoW}

Aug 3rd 2010 6:15PM It's a very nice and clean UI, but there's no way I could use it myself. I just can't stand HUD's and I like to fit Power Auras around the center of my screen.

So it's not functional (in the way I would like at least, I'm sure it works for Shik), but it scores a 10 on the pretty and simplified meters.

Also, on the left edge of the screen, in the center. What's that little bar? Just curious.

Reader UI of the Week: Fizziks' UI Mk. II {WoW}

Jul 28th 2010 3:08PM Also, Satrina Buff Frames still works fine, even if it hasn't been updated for a while. I'm having 0 bugs with it.

Reader UI of the Week: Fizziks' UI Mk. II {WoW}

Jul 28th 2010 3:05PM If he hasn't changed it since the last one, it's Buffalo. I personally prefer Satrina Buff Frames, but if you're just looking for an addon that favors simplicity over flexibility Buffalo is good.

Reader UI of the Week: Skippah's UI {WoW}

Jul 27th 2010 10:14AM It's been a little while, but just in case you're still wondering, yes! SUF has a number of options on how to color the frames. If you want you can even just have the text change color based on aggro level, so you can see if people are getting too close beforehand.

SUF FTW.

Addon Spotlight: Grab bag {WoW}

Jul 23rd 2010 10:40AM I'm honestly surprised no one has given the right answer here yet.

Make a seperate profile for different size raids. Yes, you have to manually change it, it's not automatic, but if you want to just use SUF for this than that's your only real option.

Go to profile, copy everything from your standard profile, then just change the raid configuration. Presto-changeo, SUF layouts for 5, 10, and 25 groups.
