Get in line! Rezzing order and you {WoW}

May 31st 2007 2:32PM I rez in the order of who caused us to die the least. That's right fury spec tank... I'm rezzing you last, and you know exactly why.

The Creamy GUI Center: Action bar break down {WoW}

May 18th 2007 4:44PM Hmm, the write up on Trinity Bars seems a little off. Remember that you don't have to use the circular button style, in fact it's off by default.

I've tried every one of these mods and can say without hesitation that Trinity is BY FAR the most flexible bar system. The fact that I don't have to open up some crappy menu panel that obscures my game view solidifies the deal. You've just got a little dial tied to your minimap that lets you control everything.

While I'll admit it's not for non-geeks (my friend for example thinks it's too hard to figure out) once you spend an hour with it it becomes second nature. To me... I'd rather spend an hour or two working on my UI, then have to deal with countless hours living with a sub-par experience in game.

Surviving to see another ding {WoW}

Apr 12th 2007 1:51PM Ultimate survivability skill? Shaman's reincarnation. Really don't know who can compete with that.

Hunter's are awesome though for the main reason that you know right away when you are in trouble, but are normally at range when this happens so you're starting off a lot quicker on your flee.

Breakfast topic: How do you control your character? {WoW}

Apr 4th 2007 8:37AM Keybind pretty much everything but totems (except for earthbind and tremor). What I don't get are the people that keybind the number keys above number 4. Even crazier are the kids that stretch for things like Shift 1 or something. My philosophy is keep all your keys centered around your movement keys.

My Shammy uses

WASD for movement

I then put my most important spells (usually those that are related to PVP quickness or interupts) on the closest keys possible.

F - nature shock
Shift F - frost shock
E - Purge
R - Healing Wave
Q - Lightning
C - Earthbound Totem
T - Tremor Totem
Tab - Lightning Shield
Mouse 3 - Storm Strike

I then use 1-4 for healing pots or misc totems/spells.

Basically I'm only using the mouse for targeting and totems. Watching WoW vids though of clickers gives me panick attacks though. I see kids jamming their mouse button waiting to hit that one spell. Insanity.

Ask WoW Insider: How's WoW performance on a Mac? {WoW}

Mar 30th 2007 2:59PM Any modern Mac will run WoW just as good as on a PC. I currently play WoW off my powermac pro laptop and can turn on all effects on my 1900x1200 cinema display.

You won't be able to run with everything full blown on a mac mini, but it plays well enough, I'd recommend you have at least a gig of RAM though.

The great part is that all the mods that work for WoW on the PC, work just as well on the mac. I'm running trinity bars, titan, metamap, tiny tips and a whole bunch more without any problems.

There is virtually no difference playing WoW on a Mac. I have a very nice PC gaming rig and I tend to still play WoW on my powermac pro because it's portable and I can get my WoW fix on the move if need be.
