Jan 22nd 2012 7:25PM I'm using power auras to monitor JotP at this point. I don't need to be staring at a bar seeing how long it has left, I just need prompting to refresh it when it falls off. If I'm not in the middle of something, I'll look at my buffs when I think it's been about a minute so I can refresh early while I have the spare gcd, but the best way to get across the essential info is the power aura.
Jan 21st 2012 9:23PM I think this every single time I play my shaman, pretty much.
Also that in the paladin-themed xpac, paladins were famously OP, and in the shaman-themed one, we've mostly been underpowered and had poor itemization to boot.
Jan 16th 2012 7:15PM I find that valor BoEs behave very differently from actual drops, because the supply of them is far greater.
Jan 16th 2012 3:29PM If BH takes an hour, there's something very very wrong.
Also, on my server at least, it's not by any means guaranteed that you'll have it at a particular time every week.
Jan 5th 2012 2:26AM I've seen diamond=repent a fair amount. The diamond is sort of pinkish and repent is a more reliable cc than fear. When I'm my shaman, triangle gets hexed, but bind elemental can also be diamond (this makes sense with diamond=lock as mentioned above, since locks are the other class that deals well with elementals). Circle is druid sometimes, by the 'class colors' logic, but more often triangle is used for their cc.
Jan 3rd 2012 4:22PM I had someone in LFR argue vehemently that green has been hotfixed to chain on lfr. Later, we got both red and green alive, and incoming damage was totally manageable, so I'm inclined to think they were lying. Confirmation either way?
Jan 2nd 2012 10:57AM I ended up too busy with RL holiday stuff to get the meta on the alt I'd been aiming to eventually get Long Strange Trip with. Strangely or sensibly, this doesn't bother me at all.

Admittedly, I don't really play ret much, so I could be totally wrong, but I am *pretty sure* that consecration is the lowest priority ability in single-target for a reason.
Dec 27th 2011 4:44PM With the various changes to healers in 4.3, which (if any) specs are best suited for tank healing? Is it just a matter of whose aoe is weakest, or even based on preferred playstyle?
Dec 26th 2011 8:47PM Adding to the consensus that, in guild runs where loot is determined by /roll, one piece per night is standard. Yes, it sometimes means that, having won the first piece that dropped, you don't get a chance at the more desirable second piece. Good manners say that you shouldn't begrudge others the chance to get something they want, anyway.
