Mages in WotLK: I'm re-speccing frostfire {WoW}

May 21st 2008 11:02AM Almost everything at the linked site is legit. The fake links get removed quickly. Everything is coming directly from the FF Alpha client, and alpha testers.

Awful Archimonde alterations in 2.4.2 {WoW}

May 14th 2008 1:10PM I saw these changes last night. While it doesn't make the fight impossible, it definitely adds a new level of difficulty.

The Doomfires had a minimum turning radius before, and you could "juke" them while running away to lose them. Now they can do a complete 180 on top of itself. Most fires now spawn, and turn on melee/tanks.

We didn't have any tank air bursting or air burst + fear, but I'm sure it's there.

I also think they increased the cd on archimonde's fear, as the DBM timer wasn't anywhere close.

I guess they wanted to tune this fight around 1-2 melee dps it seems. Go Blizz!

Blizzard cracks down on arena win trading {WoW}

May 11th 2008 6:24PM 1. Blizzard add rules to try and stop this behavior.
2. People find a loophole, and continue to do it.
3. They ban/strip people of thier ill-gotten gains.

The Whirlwind follows....

Arcane Brilliance: The world of Mage-crafting, part 1 {WoW}

Apr 26th 2008 4:45PM The Mage hit-cap without talents is 204, w/ talents Arcane-76, Fire-164, and Frost-128(EP is bugged, gives 6% frost hit).

Killing ogres and feeling like a jerk {WoW}

Apr 21st 2008 5:58PM Read the quest next time, you don't need to kill the elites. You draw the mark out with beer you get at another ogre outpost.

Macro Anatomy: Polymorphing with the Focus Target {WoW}

Apr 13th 2008 3:02PM I prefer this one:

/clearfocus [mod:shift] [target=focus,dead] [target=focus,noexists] [target=focus,noharm]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/cast [target=focus] Polymorph(Rank 1: Pig)
/stopmacro [nobtn:2]
/script SetRaidTargetIcon("focus", 4)

Magisters' Terrace illuminated {WoW}

Mar 29th 2008 1:58PM Heroic BM is a joke, btw.

25 Easter eggs of the Burning Crusade {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2008 5:35PM Also there's a Captain O'neal (RDA's SG-1 character), standing next to him is Lieutenant Karter (another SG-1 character)

Macro Anatomy: Run phase and beyond! {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2008 4:43PM I find myself limited by the 255 character limit in macros more often than not.

These abbreviations work too:
[btn:1/2/3] - Mouse button clicks left, right, middle

example mage buff macro-
/cast [btn:2, mod:alt] Dampen Magic; [btn:2, mod:shift] Amplify Magic; [btn:2] Arcane Intellect; [nomod] Mage Armor; [mod:shift]Molten Armor; [mod:ctrl] Ice Armor; [mod:alt] Arcane Brilliance

example mage sheep macro(try this one)-

/clearfocus [mod:shift] [target=focus,dead] [target=focus,noexists] [target=focus,noharm]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/cast [target=focus] Polymorph(Rank 1: Pig)
/stopmacro [nobtn:2]
/script SetRaidTargetIcon("focus", 4)

The first example puts all your buffs on one button. The second example focuses your target(if you don't have one or your focus target is dead or friendly), sheeps it, and if you right click it, puts a green triangle on it.
