Raid Awareness 101: Void Zones

February 12, 2016

Something that has cropped up in guild this weeks is raid awareness or to be more frank, the lack of it. Therefore I thought I’d cover some of the raiding basics over the next few months to help us all become better raiders. Many boss encounters make use of void zones, which is a static pile of bad placed on the floor which we must not stand in because they…


Priesting 101: Macros

Macros, I love em! They are great to enable many “slash commands” into a single button click. I won’t go into the basics of what they are are or how to make them (click here for a beginner’s guide) but they do come in many levels of complexity. There are two limits Blizzard have on macros. The first is that macros cannot be more than 255 character long, which while…

Priesting 101: Enchanting Your Gear

Following on from my guide on Gemming Your Gear, I thought I would move on to enchanting, the other more “traditional” way of improving the stats on your character and their gear. If you’re not an enchanter there are 2 ways of getting an item enchanted, the traditional way was to find an enchanter, give them the required materials (either bought from the auction house or acquired through using the disenchant option during dungeon…

Transmogrification 101

With Patch 4.3, we’re getting one of the most exiting cosmetic changes ever introduced into World of Warcraft, transmogrification. Fortunately, the WoW community have christened this “Mogging” because quite frankly the word transmogrification is a horrible word to say. When I first heard it I though that it was a term invented by the folks over in Irvine, CA, but apparently it’s been around for a while and the earliest recorded use of the word according to…

Priesting 101: Gemming Your Gear

Gemming your gear has become a way of life for us since the Burning Crusade, but with all the changes to specs and stats how many of us really know what we’re doing when gemming our gear? The aim of this post is to cover off the basics of filling those lovely sockets in that shiny new piece of gear that the big bad you just killed dropped and then…

Priesting 101: The Way of the Holy Priest.

I have been asked a few times recently on how I play the priest class, the talents I chose, the gear I pick, the gems and enchants I use. While there is no perfect answer there are a few simple rules that I use to help me be the 2nd greatest priest you know. Today I’m going to cover the first phase of making sure I end up 3rd on your…

Cataclysm Raiding: Opening Night

The guys and girls of Saturday Knight Fever ventured out this week with our first night of raiding in Cataclysm. OK we did visit Blackwing Descent on December 14th and got our collective asses handed to us as we failed to kill more than a single trash mob and Magmaw, he did lol at us as we ran away with our tails firmly between our legs. But more than that…
