Raid Rx: Throughput, regeneration and secondary stats {WoW}

Apr 15th 2011 5:12PM Heh I'm also a little off topic.....but as a priest healer I wanted to say Disc on maloriak is a much less mana consuming choice. I heal everyone, not just raid or just tanks, and normally am holy but not for this fight. I recommend trying it out ;) Atonement is the shyt.

Spiritual Guidance: A bitter priest's guide to Lightwell {WoW}

Apr 12th 2011 4:06PM Only the players in my guild who also have priests ever use my damn lightwell....this includes the tanks!

We are on Cho'gall right now, and nobody will use the effing lightwell.... do they not realize how mana intensive and healing intensive that entire fight is??? Do they not realize that because of their stupid a$$es sitting in fire/etc and not avoiding avoidable dmg means clicking the lightwell would easily help negate this????

It is RIDICULOUS that people won't take half a second or less to move their mouse to a different part of the screen and right click.

Just two nights ago this was a HUGE issue. I don't have a working mic, so I have it macro'd...... but Dawn is absolutely right--when I am able to say click it, they do...to the point where they click it and waste it when they don't even need it!!! Ugh.

Blood Sport: Arena should be more like rated battlegrounds {WoW}

Apr 5th 2011 6:55PM Correct me if I'm wrong but there are no longer skirmishes.

Also, more often than not the situation being referenced involves a friend who may or may not suck at PVP wishing to just get his games in for points, but really wants your help! A skrim won't let you help him get points, sure you can argue skrims will help you teach him or her but the fact of the matter is the majority of players wishing to play with friends is that they also wish to not necessarily boost their buddies points but to aid them in getting more. (Yes a lot of boosting does occur but that's not rly my point). Just saying that skrims don't solve this...... I know they did something like war games but I can't even find that option...is that just a rated bg thing too? Anywho..... has anyone complaining about not finding a rated BG even spent time looking for one?

I mean actually sitting in trade for 15minutes..... and even longer..... asking for others to play with? Most of the time groups aren't actively recruiting others for these RBGs, but when they see people interested they'll whisper them and pick them up, at least for another time if not right then.

A lot of pvp guilds are out there that don't rly raid, and they enjoy the occasional friends list bg'r to pick up when a normal memeber doesn't show.

A lot of negative QQ going on so far but this really is a grand idea, the entire post.

I concur!

Blood Pact: Warlocks vs. Cho'gall {WoW}

Apr 4th 2011 4:57PM I realize this may never be looked at again.... but in the rare chance someone does see my comment.... can a succubus' Whiplash knock out the MC's??? If that's the case, then I'm fully confident my afflic lock could take care of things quite well with SB: Corruption + Glyphed shadowflame + howl of terror + succy's whiplash + death coils and infernal and and and.....yeah I definitely don't think destro is the only way to go here.

(Have done this fight on other toons so I have seen it and can confidently say Affliction should be just dandy).

Spiritual Guidance: Priest healing Ascendant Council {WoW}

Mar 29th 2011 11:10AM Thank you for the response, Dawn! Now will the DPS get even more stacks (and thus higher dmg) the longer we leave the debuff on the person before dispelling? My boyfriend heals on a pally and keeps arguing with me about this...he says it will....

and now I must convince raid lead to let us dispel more quickly instead of basically letting the damn thing do its full run!

Spiritual Guidance: Priest healing Ascendant Council {WoW}

Mar 28th 2011 7:10PM Probably a silly question but I've been reading and misreading many articles about the Heart of Ice and Burning Blood debuffs: from what you wrote, it sounds as though you dispel it off the players once they reach their respective groups? (e.g. Ice to melee, blood to ranged.) Is this the case? Or do you merely dispel it once it's been on for a while and the ticks are getting hefty?

I've downed this boss three times on my warlock with top guilds on the server, but am still healing attempts for my own guild on my priest. I've been doing it as holy. The pugs I did it with had enough dps to not even need said debuffs, so they were immediately dispelled and nobody ran it anywhere. However, my guild still needs a little higher dps so we do need said debuffs, erm, buffs, so we absolutely run the ice to the melee.... and eventually the ticks combined w/ the flame shield aoe end up being a little too much. So I just would love some clarification on how or when to dispel it....

A side note but definitely related, we only have two or three melee dps so in order to not take away their damage when the big flame shield aoe starts, we dispel the blood if it gets on a melee. We don't want them having to run out to the ranged group. Might help other groups to do as well.....

One more question if I may! Most every strat I see has the ranged group stacking in the middle, and they all get repeatedly knocked back by Ignacious' leap crap....should healers be standing away? I've been cheating and not standing with the group as to avoid the annoying knockback. I tend to stick between the two bosses, as to reach both tanks and the ranged group. I'm not missing something imperative am I that could be ruining our attempts?

Sorry for the silly questions just would love clarification! Thanks so much.

Raid Rx: Best practices for healing heroic Chimaeron {WoW}

Mar 25th 2011 10:44AM The difference between success and failure in my group is pre-emptively casting PoH when I see the Caustic slime timer dwindling down....that way once it goes out, your PoH pops right after if your timing is right, and no need to waste mana on any more annoying flash heal dumps. I stay in serenity chakra for the hard hitting insta cast spell, but swap to sanctuary for Feud.

It's also helpful to push the last phase mid feud before massacre hits. No massacre, everyone topped off, last phase beginning = win.

Drama Mamas: Is WoW cool? Should you care? {WoW}

Mar 19th 2011 2:14AM Let's not forget about all the darn Map Packs you have to literally purchase too, for games like H: Reach. (*However they aren't absolutely mandatory to play several of the matchmaking playlists.*)

Drama Mamas: Is WoW cool? Should you care? {WoW}

Mar 19th 2011 2:06AM Wow; I NEVER thought I could agree on so much with another person...especially in a forum!! Haha. Your comment "Anyone that thinks COD players are cool hasn't spent much time grinding exp on multiplayer. I can think of many adjectives, but cool isn't one of them. " is SO frikkin true!! So is not playin WoW to be 'cool' haha half the time I don't tell people I play. :S :] And I also can't remember the last time I bought a game... didn't get Red Dead Red.; Bioshock 2 came as a gift and it blew... compared to the 1st one. Anywho yeah thumbs up I agree with every thing you said, haha! ^.^

Drama Mamas: Is WoW cool? Should you care? {WoW}

Mar 18th 2011 10:56AM Being a female WoW AND XBL player (Used to be sponsored for MLG in H2 days.... now I play Black Ops and somewhat Reach), I can definitely understand some of the pressure this person and so many others feel.

XBL and FPS's will undoubtedly allure the more casual gamers. Someone already stated SO very well how it does provide instant gratification, and appeals to a stereotypically "cooler" crowd----the athletes/jock-types who don't even have the time to devote to WoW.....but you know what? Secretly a lot of them wish they did. (I know, I was captain of many Varsity teams for a long time and many secretly dreamed of playing hahaha).

Console gamers can get further involved and practice 6 hours a day (as I did when in MLG, you had to train each gametype w/ your teammates so you knew what to do in every situation....think Arenas!) But it's just not the same as immersing yourself in an entirely different world...of warcraft. ^.~

I think of WoW kind of like reading a phenomenal book --- how it just takes you out of the real world...let's you forget about homework....or bills.... or any amount of social problems. This is a huge benefit.... quick example:

I have been with my boyfriend for five years now and for 3 of those years we were long distance. We encountered some very trying times in our personal lives....deaths...depression...and WoW was basically the ideal way for us to just go somewhere and just chill together...(via silently questing alongside one another or wandering around azeroth). When one of us was too depressed to even speak for a long time, WoW was the tool we used to just get away from it all. That said..... in spite of the vast amount of time spent on the game, friends still viewed us as 'cool.' Because it's not about what games you play, what music you listen to, or what movies you watch. It's about how you act; your personality. Your character. People viewed me as popular and pretty and never believe me when they say I play WoW...so I use that as a way to convince them WoW is pretty cool. Because if you rae confident about it, you can basically tell anyone to shove it and be happy just being you and doing things you like.

Had a guy I dated for about a month whom i had to literally hide playing from for a while....we ended it because I couldn't take it anymore. He'd want to come over to watch the game or Family Guy and I wasn't allowed to multi task and get my dailies done during it.....grrrr. Some people just don't understand, and that's ok. Let the haters hate as we all have said.... and remember, everyone has their own thing goin on.

Film aficionados, various types of artists, pokemon card players, everyone has some kind of hobby that they are immersed in and they just own it -- it is their thing -- so be confident, and I'm sure before long you'll be having all your XBL buddies join you on WoW too! It happened to me :)
