Scattered Shots: Hunter class feedback {WoW}

Sep 16th 2011 5:20AM oh hey Adam, i didn't mean that dk tanks are " fail tanks" or something, it's just that since their mitigation of damage is based on healing damage taken instead of, well, mitigating it they have a pretty bouncy life bar - much more than the other kinds of tanks.

Also, I really like that trick you've said Snuzzles - It's a pretty safe way to not miss a cc if u warn the group beforehand (good way to scare the hell out of the tank too).

Scattered Shots: Hunter class feedback {WoW}

Sep 15th 2011 6:16PM I have the same los problem I think, best I can do is put a trap in the middle so that when the tanks pull the mob will be trapped. usually its one of the tigers instead of one of the trolls, but one less target makes it easier cause usually a mage/shaman will poly/hex one of the trolls too. Where exactly do you aim at to trap the trolls?

About camouflage, it's not true stealth against mobs... It just lowers your aggro range so I think u will probably aggro the mobs if u go upstairs to try to trap them.

I don't think it's a bad thing what the hunter did actually, he didn't have any (positive) experience trying that and he didn't want to drag you guys down. Considering the avg ilvl nowadays it's pretty possible to do that pull without CCs. If the tank was a DK it'd be a bit scarier to the healer, but it's definitely doable.

It'd be easier to just put a trap ahead of the mobs and pull em, try asking the hunter to do that since the chance to screw something is pretty low that way.

Raid Rx: How to handle button mashing syndrome {WoW}

Sep 9th 2011 6:27PM Also I don't think you need to go that far to find reasons we button mash - Most of us have DPSers alts/mains in which a second not using skills is a lot of DPS lost... Resulting in a lot of keyboard facerolling except when soloing.

Raid Rx: How to handle button mashing syndrome {WoW}

Sep 9th 2011 6:23PM Interesting article Matt! I mash buttons on all my characters which are mainly DPSers (main is a hunter). Using Healbot Addon on my holy paladin made me control a bit the "angry german kid" syndrome but i still tend to spam Judgment key 2 seconds before its ready.

Nowadays I'm trying to level a rogue which became a great way for myself to learn some self-control since that limited energy makes u choose more carefully what to use it for.

To help queueing/cancelling spells it might be a good idea to use the Addon Quartz - it has a "latency bar" which helps u react according to your lag (which is around 150-200ms where I live at).

The Classifieds: Understanding the schedule {WoW}

Sep 7th 2011 8:41PM The photo could use a bit of retouching cause it's too bright so it could look more appealing but it doesn't look bad. I'd love to try it someday (but I'd take the skin off it though)!

I can picture myself with a glass of beer, some dipping sauce or maybe just ketchup and maybe some roasted potatoes as a side dish... Damn, I'm getting hungry :(

The Queue: What do GMs do ... {WoW}

Aug 30th 2011 12:13PM Not a Matt but I'd like to add that it's quite easy to "camp" posts if u add Wowinsider to a rss reader like I do... Unfortunately all that cames to my mind when I see a no replies post is "First!" so I refrain myself to just reading the post.

Is it time to kill tanking? {WoW}

Aug 26th 2011 11:18AM
is it sad that the one time I got ranked into Worldoflogs I was using BM?

I do love dpsing as bm, but it's hard to compete againt MM's flexibility (BM on Atramedes = sad hunter) and SV (which I usually pick cause there's not a class who can provide that buff on our group).

The extra healing from a spirit beast and the bigger roster of pets to choose as a BM hunter doesn't hurt either...

Wouldn't mind if BM tree were made like something like feral tree, which supports both roles in one tree though.

Raid finder coming in patch 4.3 {WoW}

Aug 24th 2011 8:14PM As an Enchanter/Jewelcrafter, I look forward for the Raid Finder.

More raids = more equips = ka-ching!

The Classifieds: Civilized leveling while wearing top hats {WoW}

Jul 27th 2011 6:05PM About the survey I think it'd be nice to add a box where u can insert ur nationality - My native language isn't english so I don't know if Jamal's research needs my data or not. There've been a few words I've never heard of that could've been common knowledge for most native american-speakers like querulous, minatory, adumbrate and others.

Fully localized WoW launching in Brazil {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2011 3:47PM So does that mean that Brazilians will be able to play under 100ms? No more excuse to stay on fire!!!
