Smote

I’ve been doing my best to level Lyrandre with something resembling haste, which has lead to me being terribly bored of smiting.

I mean sure, it’s entertaining at first–but by the time you hit 83/84, suddenly your mana bar seems to have sprung a leak, and holy fire/smite/smite/smite turns into holy fire/smite/smite/smite/smite/holy fire/smite/SW:D/fuck I misjudged, smite.

This is where you’d say Amber, isn’t Lyr dual specced?

Yes, yes she is.  Disc and nothing.

…what do you mean I should use that second spec for shadow?  Pffft. 

I’ve hit 84 and the dreaded Twilight Highlands, which means that I will be a paper armored smear on the ground several times from here on out. Woe.

My pugging experiences have been mostly good, until I got one of Those Tanks the other day. He was in partial casting gear (BARE tank, I’m guessing moonkin otherwise) and at one point–after I nearly died on the first trash pull–I made him aware that hey, untanked caster mobs tend to eat the healer.

He said that was fine. He was invincible!

No really, he said that he didn’t care if I died because he was invincible.

By the time I hit 85 the rust should be completely, brutally knocked off my healing skills…

Amber’s Guide To Inventive Cursing

Note: I am not very PC when it comes to this sort of thing.  I freely throw around words like cunt, etc (in case you haven’t noticed).  If this offends you, you…might not want to read this post.

First, start with a body part. Obviously the “naughty” parts work the best for this, though “face” also has many applications. I use parts regardless of the gender of the person I’m insulting.

Suggestions:
dick
cock
face
cunt
ass
shit
twat
sausage
butt (sometimes it just flows better than ass–depends on what it’s paired with)

Then, take your ‘part’ and smoosh it together with another word.  Often this word is random, though everyone has favorites. Face is one of those words that can pull double duty and go on this list, as well.

Suggestions:
waffle
canoe
batter
weasel
hate
wipe
nugget
cactus
log
button
punch
biscuit
catcher
stain

If you’re really cheesed off, you can always try adding descriptive words like “flaming”.

How I Drive My Raid Leader Crazy

Discussing how we’re down to 4 healers and another one “would be nice”, and me possibly leveling my priest:

me:  Priest, not paladin?  C’mon, heal a raid with nothing but paladins, GO
 Fuzzbutt:  Wha?
 me:  /points at her healers at 80
 Fuzzbutt:  What’s wrong with priest? I thought you HATED pallies now?
 me:  THEY DIDNT HAVE AOE HEALS THEN
 Fuzzbutt:  But holy power is still around.
 me:  But it was mostly tongue in cheek, I vendored all of Ambro’s healing gear.  Haha,.
With Lyr I can LFD ALL THE THINGS isntead of questing >.>
Which is how i prefer it
 Fuzzbutt:  Lol
Srsly though, it is ONLY if you want to.
I’m really not gonna make anyone do anything
 me:  I am not burned out on healing ala Myss.
Fuzzbutt:  Yes I know this
But I also know you like your DK (last I checked?)
 me:  I will start leveling her as best I can, but if we get a healer replacement first I won’t be butthurt either.
I do!
And I like my hutner now that I have kind of foguredo ut focus things
but!
I will play…whatever
 Fuzzbutt:  Do you actually WANT to heal?
Or are you just willing to, to reduce my headache?
 me:  I will happily heal if we need me to. 
I will jsut as happily keep melee DPSing, too.
 Fuzzbutt:  THAT doesn’t answer my question
 me:  I WANT to heal about as much as I WANT to DPS, thus making it equal
 Fuzzbutt:  Technically. I don’t NEED you to
I have 4 healers and should be able to rotate alright
 me:  WELL I WILL LEVER HER ANYWAY AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS
 Fuzzbutt:  Lever!
 me:  damn it
shut up and go to bed
 Fuzzbutt:  Lol
I’m just saying amber
I want you to play what you want to play. Not what I may need you to play.
Its not how we operate. I’m not going to start now.
And your little non-answers just make me feel like you’re doing it cause I want you to
 me:  Seriously, dude, I DON’T CARE
I WILL PLAY WHATEVER THE FUCK
just not ret pally oh god
or rogue
…or mage
unless someone powerlevels me through maging
becuase I have no idea
SCORCH ALL THE THINGS OH GOD I DIED
 Fuzzbutt:  YOU’RE NOT HELPING GODDAMMIT
 me:  BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I DON’T CARE
 Fuzzbutt:  /Flail
Its hard to believe that when you had no interest in it until I brought it up the other night
me:  I DONT HAVE INTEREST IN CAKE UNTIL SOMEONE MENTIONS IT EITHER

Cho’gall: DPS Edition

I’m going to break these up into Melee and Ranged, because we do have slightly different jobs for phase one.

Melee Phase One:
Be prepared to rage at tiny hit boxes.

The way we handle this in 10s, both melee peel off the boss to follow the add tank. You’re worried about two things here: 1) interrupting Depravity (OMG IMPORTANT) and 2) not accidentally killing the add before the tank drags him back to the doors.  Once the add is dead, run back to the boss and DPS as normal.

Be sure to keep an eye out for people who are worshipped so that you can give them a good whack as you go by.  With an interrupt, mind you, no matter how tempting it is to do otherwise.  Sometimes your fellow melee will get worshipped on the way back and stand there worshipping away because no one is paying any fucking attention to shit behind them.

While on the boss, there’s really nothing special to consider except interrupting worshippers when you can. Oh and not standing in things. But really, should I have to include things like “don’t stand in fire and dark puddles on the ground” at this stage?

Ranged Phase One:
When the adds die up by the door, the dark puddles they drop on the floor will spawn oozes.  The oozes need to die.  The melee should, ideally, never even know they exist!  Otherwise pay no attention to the ugly adds that SPAWN the oozes–that’s the melee’s job. If there are no oozes up, DPS the boss.

Interrupt any and all people worshipping when you can. 

Don’t stand in things on the floor.

Phase Two, Both:
Kill all the stalks and interrupt their casts.  Once they are dead, flail wildly at the boss until there’s more stalks.

This is a good time to blow Army and other tasty cooldowns.

If you have corruption sickness, do try not to vomit on people, they don’t appreciate that.

O Noes They’re Nerfing Content!

…again.  Remember when they did this before? Even ignoring the ICC Buff, there was The Great BC Content Nerf that dropped boss health. Suddenly the evil wind chime was actually killable by more than 1 guild on the entire god damned server!  Obviously this isn’t Sunwell, but you could argue that the nerfs meant ‘more’ back then.

In case you were wondering, the world didn’t end then, and it won’t end now.

I fail to grasp why people are getting their knickers in a twist over it. If you haven’t beaten the content by the time the nerf hits (and psst, it’s not that soon), then guess what?  Your penis wasn’t really that big anyway.

@Faidtastic said earlier, “Across the board raid nerf is ridiculous, T10 for Justice Points would self-nerf them, anyone who needed further nerfs shouldn’t be raiding.” 

Last I checked they weren’t taking away boss mechanics–just making them hurt a little less. A nerf will not magically allow all of The Bads to clear all the (by then, OLD) content, just made things a bit easier for those of us who take things a bit slower.

Of course I’d be surprised if SiB hasn’t downed every boss on normal mode well before then anyway–we only have two to go. In that case the nerf isn’t really about us (the 10 man normal crews) either, and our mighty penii remain satisfyingly large. It’s for alt runs and puggers and guilds who aren’t as blessed with attendance as we are.

And if you’re already doing heroic modes, why do you care? This isn’t about you.

I’m not even going to touch the ‘shouldn’t be raiding’ comment.  Just not gonna.

UNBUNCH YOUR KNICKERS AND QQ LESS.

ETA:  I don’t really mean to pick on Faidtastic with this post, his comment was just there in my Twitter feed being all…easily accesable and quotable.

So about that haste thing.

I finally got a chance to raid with all of my gear at least reforged to reflect the 4.1 changes and the DW frost DK’s new love for haste.

Just to give you an idea, I did 13.5k DPS in BH last night when I forgot to swap out of my PvP gear. Of course, I also DIED on trash because I yanked aggro off the pugged tank, so… >.> There is an increased risk, as well.

Throw me in a raid with actual PvE gear on (heh) and 15k on boss fights seems to be typical. This is a nice boost up from what it was pre-patch, so change good in that regard.

I can see why some people feel that it’s hectic. I found it less so, but then, my attention was caught by the ‘dead spaces’ in which I had nothing to do. It seems as if there’s a few more of those than there used to be. 

I blame the loss of blood strike, which was my “hmm, I need a button to press” go-to sometimes. Perhaps I will just restlessly spam horn of winter in these spaces instead, where the DPS warrior can promptly overwrite it with a shout.

That, or just run circles around non-cleaving trash mobs some more.  >.>
