WTB Inspector Addon

I’m looking for an addon. I’ve tried a few but I’m looking for input from you. I want to be able to inspect someone and see: – their spec numbers (without having to actually view their whole tree) – whether they’re at defense cap for tanking – whether they’re at hit cap (gear and talents please)for raiding and/or for heroics…

Affliction Warlocks and Patch 3.3

I need some serious face-time with SimulationCraft. Right now I’m just taking my best stab at Affliction and running on gut feeling but I’m starting to feel the need for some firm hard mathification. Open questions: – My rule of thumb for CotEl has always been “if 3+ people benefit from it in the raid and it wasn’t covered by…

Early Christmas for Affliction

A while back I wrote the following: … Thing 2: Dots, Hots and Haste Some Hots/Dots may benefit from haste by ticking faster. Verdict: Mixed. If your dot ticks faster it ends sooner meaning you have to recast it more. For warlocks they’re talking about doing this by having a glyph that makes your Corruption tick faster. I’m interested to…

Dungeon Finder Sneaky Tips

Dungeon Finder wins most favorite update of 3.3. If you join a dungeon via the Dungeon Finder and click on the green eyeball (located on/near your minimap) you’ll be offered the choice to teleport out of the instance (back to where you were when you started). (repair, buy reagents, etc) Once there, you can click on the green eyeball to…

Link to WoW Armory Calendar

So.. in the middle of writing this post I clicked over to the WoW Armory to get a screenshot of their calendar.. and noticed that it looked totally different. In fact it looks like they accidentally released an upgrade to the Armory before they were actually ready. A new upgrade to the Armory is supposedly coming in Jan 2010 and…

Caffeine

Well it’s done. I submitted my list of names to Blizz and it turns out my number 1 choice (Defiant) was taken (.. it appears to be held by a lowbie toon. How annoying!) so they went with my number 2 choice. So my guild is now named “Caffeine”. I like it. I’ve started our new guild web page. I’d…

Guild

A guild by any other name…

Last night I filed a /gm ticket about our guild name. The guild was named “USSR” and the guild population agreed that we didn’t love the name. We’ve asked friends to report it.. but that wasn’t doing us any good. So last night I bit the bullet and filed a ticket myself. I wrote that I’d inherited the guild.. and…

Enemy’s Gate is Down

I think I need to start making crib sheets for raid/dungeons. We ran Heroic Occulus.. and none of use could clearly remember any of the boss fights. I think I’ll start a set of Crib Sheets here and on the new guild site so that I have a quick reminder.. and a spot to cut/copy paste instructions for puggers. I’m…

Pugging makes me angry. I've decided to "invent" a drinking game to make it less horrible. Anyone have any suggested rules? # Pugging Drinking game rule 1: take a shot whenever someone who isn't a tank starts a pull. # #PugDrinkinGame Drink when the OT pulls while you're still handing out loot from the boss before. Bonus if they then…
