Rogues should all DIAF

Tol Barad, those bastards, have my trinket. Not only that, they won’t give it to me until I do a LOT of their dirty work. I’m covered in spider gunk, up to my ears in fish and have splinters from all the lumber. I’ve cleared out restless infantry, unhappy villagers and crazed guards. I even killed that overgrown guppy “Tank”.…

Living outside the box

Today seems to be the day to noodle about warlock macros.. Check out Fulguralis and Cynwise. I wanted to follow the crowd.. but realize my macros are a home.. and I am not.. So instead.. I made a How-to for Argaloth. He’s not terribly hard.. just don’t stand in stuff. Assuming your group has the positioning, the dispellers (which BTW…

Pretty Pretty Trinkets

I think of all the armor slots I hate trinkets the most. It’s because it’s hard to compare “occasionally hits target with shadowy damage” vs “summons a minion to fight at your side” vs “very very occasionally gives you god-like int.. but then is on cooldown for the rest of the fight”.

The combination of too many committments, Life and in-game stresses made everything less fun. I took a while off (July-September) and frankly I’m better for it. That said,…

Pandemic + Haste

Pandemic causes your Bane and Curse spells to behave as if you have 50% haste (50% haste reduces GCD for casters down to 1 second). Assuming that Haste and Pandemic don’t stack (ie you can’t bring your GCD below 1 second) that would imply that the second point in Pandemic becomes less important as your haste increases. In fact, using…

What I did on my vacation

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas (or holiday of your choosing) and a Happy New Year. I was a horrible sloth and spent way too much time WoWing over the holiday. On my vacation I: – completed the Loremaster of Cataclysm – completed my first Cataclysm Heroic (and a few more after that)(5/8 completed so far) – got to…
