May 24th 2007 8:59PM "the days after a new patch are always days of terror"
They are? Funny, I have 186 addons (yes yes, libraries are probably a good 1/3 of that) and only one, agUF, broke. A quick update and it worked.
I know I sound like a jerk when I say this, but very few addons should break on a patch day. Any good dev pays attention to the upcoming changes and hits the PTR if one of their addons is effected. If an addon breaks and has no update, it's either abandoned or the dev sucks :P
May 18th 2007 9:27PM I'm working on a focus frame specifically designed for re-sheeping. Keep an eye out for it, it'll be on WoWI soon... name's ControlFreak.
May 17th 2007 9:54AM Not that hard to just move all the addons you want into one single massive addon...
May 15th 2007 3:12PM Erm... stupid priest almost did it for me... First Ramparts run after TBC came out (was in beta, many great runs there)... Me (hunter), husband (balance druid), a warrior from my guild, a prot pally from husband's guild, and a pick-up holy priest. Everyone's doing fine except the priest, who can't seem to keep the warrior healed. After the warrior dies twice and thus two near-wipes, he starts demanding raid icons on targets. Not seeing a reason for icons, since the issues we're having are healing not targetting, the leader puts an icon over the priest. Naturally he's not happy with this and rants how he now cannot see things. Another warrior death and the priest complains that he shouldn't be the only one healing. The warrior, still dead, says "stop bitching, I've been spamming Flash Heal this whole time." Naturally I chime in "me too!", and the paladin "I thought you were healing the warrior and I was healing the hunter's bear..."
Of course the priest (still with raid icon overhead), disbands and hearths. After a few minutes laughing at his stupidity and trying to find another member, we preceded to take down the first boss with only 4 people before calling it a night.
May 12th 2007 1:18AM Session-ignore is fine, it's obvious their intent is to expedite the process of banning spam accounts. The current method of opening a non-descript GM ticket means you have to wait for all the other non-spam issues ahead of you in the queue. I'm sure the GMs are going to be making spam reports a top priority here.
A nice tweak I'd personally like to see, make accounts automatically get a temp ban if a certain number of spam reports are made in a given time frame. That would encourage people to report the spam even more, instead of just installing an addon to block it.
May 5th 2007 12:03AM I have an n52 for my actionbar (that's ONLY 12 buttons bound there) and for targetting (on the d-pad). I use the mouse for less-common spells and have my bound actionbar set up in such a way that swapping actions is very easy (similar actions are kept directly above the button they are grouped with)... That way I know that button X is always a trap and button Y is always a sting. On my healer classes I use Clique for healing and decursing, nothings faster than clicking a unitframe for a fast heal, or shift-click for a big heal. No time spent hitting two keys, trying to remember which unit number a player is... I used to mis-target and pick the wrong spell a lot when I keybind-healed. Oh yea, shift is bound to a button on my n52 as well, that speeds things up for me.
FPS always seems to take that "I'm right and it's the only possible solution" stance. I think it must come from the testosterone and adrenaline levels needed to master that genre. I personally suck beyond belief at FPS, and that can be seen in how I play WoW. I used to duo with a heavy PvPer and it drove me nuts how he couldn't sit still when tanking a mob. He couldn't even force himself to sit still, even tho the constant movement was interrupting my spells... yes, the intent of moving is to interrupt spells, but not those of your partner!
