Shifting Perspectives: The balance druid AoE rotation {WoW}

Mar 28th 2011 10:03AM From the guide mentioned above:
"6) If you skip the Shadow Priests to buff a Balance Druid/Survival Hunter for a pathetic 2-8 dps personal gain over a 1100+ raid dps loss, and I find out you used this post to justify it, I will find you and punch you in the junk."

'nuff said.

Shifting Perspectives: The balance druid AoE rotation {WoW}

Mar 26th 2011 12:35PM "I would assume that this would be from referencing the Simcraft data that was posted on MMOChamp? If so, then, as I stated, their numbers are actually incorrect. "

...and as *I've* stated, the moon is quite clearly purple. I'd be more inclined to believe you with some sort of data or theorycrafting rather than just a statement that something is wrong.

Shifting Perspectives: The balance druid AoE rotation {WoW}

Mar 26th 2011 10:01AM Didn't see anything in this article that actually proves that boomkins are "better" targets for my dark intent, just a lot of hand waving and an allusion to "the most recent simming". Until someone else can provide some hard data, I'm following this guide as always: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/813759-Dark-Intent-The-Guide-%282010-12-24

At any rate, even if moonkins are better in AoE situations, I STILL wouldn't give them dark intent because

A) AoE is only needed on trash pulls and for a few moments of a boss fight, not the whole fight, and
B) I'll give it to my RESTO druid friend over any dps at all. Most of the time, healers need the buff more than dps.

At any rate, you're not supposed to give DI based on what gives the most personal gain, you give it based on what helps the *raid* most.

tl;dr: Allowing healers to heal more > doing 1% more dps on AoE trash pulls.

Patch 4.1 PTR: World boss loot tables updated {WoW}

Mar 26th 2011 9:39AM Dear wowinsider, there's this website called wowhead.com, and when you link to items there, you can see the item just by mousing over it! Amazing isn't it? Maybe you should try that?

Reader UI of the Week: Todoroku's tower {WoW}

Mar 15th 2011 5:14PM I too have a non-widescreen moniter, although mine is one step up being an older LCD at 1280x1024. I recently overhauled my UI, and working in the constraints of a non-widescreen was challenging. So, I think I may submit my UI very soon so that other people in the same boat as us can benefit from my work! I know when I go back to playing wow on my widescreen laptop I'll have to redesign my UI again and I'm not looking forward to that.

Making a non-widescreen UI is hard!

15 Minutes of Fame: Raiding without their strats on {WoW}

Mar 10th 2011 2:42PM This sounds awesome, I think I would enjoy this style of raiding immensely! I'm a very logical/analytic person, and my favorite part of raiding is the problem solving and planning strategy. The way these guys raid sounds like strategy planning on crack times 100.

Still, I think you see this type of thing with normal raid groups in that we still need to sit down and figure out a strategy that works for US. I can definitely see the appeal though.

Props to everyone that can pull this off!

Encrypted Text: Patch 4.1 already a hit with rogues {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2011 1:55PM Low level sub rogues were already broken in BGs, this will make them even MORE broken. I fail to see how this is even remotely balanced for other classes. :/

Spiritual Guidance: Revisiting the hybrid tax {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2011 1:52PM I took enough statistics in university to know that I should be skeptical of graphs like this since they can be easily skewed with bias. Before jumping to conclusions about what this data means, most people don't know how to read the graph and are skipping over the "what does it actually say" step. In order to come to any kind of logical conclusion, we need more data, and at least a basic understanding of how statistics work.

tl;dr: this graph is meaningless for the average person, and we shouldn't draw conclusions based on it.

Needs moar research.

Patch 4.0.6 hotfixes for March 1 {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2011 10:22AM "The Giant Wall of Text Attacks!"
"The Giant Wall of Text Crits for over 9000!"
"You die."

Blood Sport: A guide to PvP keybinding {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2011 10:47AM Everyone seems to be ignoring ` as a keybind, which I find to be absolutely crucial. It was the first thing ouside of wasd that I picked to be a keybind since its so easy to reach! For most classes I play, ` is an interrupt (wind shear, pummel, kick), but my warlock doesn't have an interrupt (and no, spell lock on my felhunter isn't useful when I'm raiding in destro spec) so I put my demonic circle macro there instead. Basically anything that I need to respond with NOW to move out of the fire/interrupt goes on ` .
