Totem Talk: A restoration shaman wish list for Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Feb 6th 2012 1:08AM You are looking at the world while it's sunny Joe. What more could you want? Well when mop comes out and it's a rainy day for shaman what would you want? All healers are competitive in 5-man pve. Pretty much they have to be. There is always a sway of how competitive a healer is in PVP and honestly since there's a sway of how competitive any particular class or spec is I don't expect it to change. PVE raiding is an issue though. Shaman were completely noncompetitive in the Firelands. The dragon soul fix didn't really do anything to fix the firelands issues. That's the more I could want.

Raid Rx: Higher-level healing starts with your mind {WoW}

Jan 21st 2012 1:19PM I agree you need a zen mindset to heal. Making excuses is as weak kneed as passing blame to someone else but the mindless simplistic note you solely put on numbers is disturbing. Make yourself cast a set number of a certain spell? Why not just go get a bot and have it play for you?

My take is yes everyone actually has room to improve. From something as small as staving off a wipe on the part of a dps using the appropriate cool down to keep themselves alive to the healer having a bit more hps at a specific time. Blindly following your suggestion will just as likely result in a wipe because said healer may run out of mana in doing so. There's an excuse for you, "this wipe was caused because I listened to Matt Low."

Healing play styles do vary per healer. Learn your class in and out. What do your spells do and when should you use them?

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Legendary Edition Mouse {WoW}

Dec 21st 2011 6:47PM I never win anything. Let's see what happens.

Know Your Lore: Cataclysm's end {WoW}

Dec 5th 2011 1:43AM The universe is chaos my friend. The aspects where made to get us to this point so we mortals could fend for ourselves. Neltharion before his madness did much to shape the mortal world. In the infancy of mortal races him separating them allowed them to learn much and grow. When his madness struck they had already learned as much as possible and him opening all borders prepared them more. With each threat he brought the mortal races have only grown stronger. If you recall (and again) Neltharion before madness had separated all mortals by raising land masses to separate them. He then later removed these barriers. Once the original well of eternity shattered the oceans created new barriers. Barriers that he could have again removed. Why did he not remove these barriers? The mortals had become formidable I'd propose.

if you recall it was the titans who empowered the aspects. surely their power is far greater. Surely they can see much further than Nozdormu. It's a circle that started with the Titans, went to the aspects, and now to the mortals. The mortal races can now stand alone.

The Classifieds: Trademark your guild name {WoW}

Oct 13th 2011 2:55AM The syndicates name was copy written on grounds unrelated to it's in game activity. The deals with the syndicate and other game developers are based on the syndicates notoriety and not its copyright status. The syndicates copyright status can not bar anyone from using the guilds name except in situations were such a predetermined agreement has been made or the games name is already in use.

Totem Talk: Restoration's first week with PTR patch 4.3 {WoW}

Oct 4th 2011 5:44PM Ya so far terrible changes that are meaningless hopefully blizzard will get there act togther.

Raid Rx: Patch 4.3 healing thoughts {WoW}

Oct 1st 2011 3:35AM This change would have made a giant splash in Wrath. Phenomenally giant. But Wrath is over. Dk healing is great but consequently It's the shield that brings the payday. Now this is not to say that this boost will do nothing. at lower levels of health this new health should bump up mastery a small amount. that's pretty much it though. This change is a very minimal boost. it will effect the numbers in a major way if you do not soley tank heal but these numbers are inflated and won't actually have a positive effect. For tank healing the buff to riptide is really what's going to have an effect. The biggest thing of note though is that these changes in noway effect the weakness of shaman healing.

Raid Rx: Patch 4.3 healing thoughts {WoW}

Sep 30th 2011 10:58AM Are you actually praising the Ancestral Healing change? It's all flash and no substance. 20k to a tank? Well that will do nothing unless the raids are tuned specifically to this ability in which case the bring the player not the class thing goes out the window. This change only stands to auto inflate the numbers. That's it. Unless the shaman can constantly build this buff up to 10% and then constantly let it drop this is just a bandaid gimmick and later changes to "balance" it will actually gimp the class. After the buff stacks it is stacked. That's it. The rink dink extra healing goes away. The extra healing does nothing but inflate the healing.

Totem Talk: Head of shaman healing for a day {WoW}

Sep 6th 2011 5:09PM Well go ahead and stack crit or quit chasing green bars and concentrate more on keeping people alive.

Totem Talk: Head of shaman healing for a day {WoW}

Sep 6th 2011 5:08PM Wow man Really? A six target chain heal off FI is what impresses you? We have this problem and to fix that problem that you admit we have you suggest a change that will effect that problem in no way what so ever. If it won't hit two or more targets half the time adding a 6 target will do nothing.

SLT- "emanate from the caster" would be a waste of time to make this change. If the Cd was longer you would get a big benefit.

Why the tiny changes anyway? Shaman always suggest a little change to a spell to make it more powerful but nothing on the level of what other classes may have. They are so scared to suggest something like making SLT raid wide or give a 30 yard range or something to that effect. Something that would guarantee a large number of people would always be in it. The thought is that would be op. It would be on the level of a tranquility not any more so op. The shaman doesn't have to be gimped as a requirement to be a good healer. RNG, minibuffs, and perfect use of GCD is what is required to keep up with spell spamming druids.
