Azerothian Shortcuts

Mages are great they have those lovely portals to all the major cities and we’re all dead jealous, druids and death knights get a taste too with their class portals to Moonglade and Ebon Hold respectively. But the rest of us just have to rely on our mounts, flight masters and boats or zeppelins (depending on our faction) or do we? I’ll admit that many of these portals are level dependant…

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…

The New Looking For Raid Tool

I’ll be honest, I was very skeptical of the newly introduced Looking For Raid (LFR) tool before it was launched. and had immediately tagged it Looking For Retard because of the dumbed down version of fights that was promised (threatend?) by Blizzard. 2 weeks on I’ve now actually experienced the LFR version of Dragon Soul, and now feel a bit more qualified to offer some real feedback on it. Before going any further lets just explain what the LFR level…

Stood In The Fire

To avoid upsetting anyone with PTR/beta information I hide it by adding all the juicy stuff below the “read more” link. So if you want to have content spoiled you will need to click the “read more” link further down the page. The only clue will be from the title of the post but these will, I promise, always be vague enough to not give anything away. Just a tiny…

Resurrection Fixes

It is great to see that changes are happening as a direct result of the feedback people like myself posted on the forums. One of my pet peeves, as mentioned in my Class Feedback Post, seems to have been addressed in the latest 4.3 PTR Build with the introduction of a 40 yard range on Resurrection although as Shaman and Paladins also received this fix it seems that I was wrong on us priests being the only…

LFR Looting

News this past week saw the announcement that loot in the new Looking For Raid versions of the Dragon Soul being introduced in 4.3 will have new loot rules.  Whilst players will still be offered the existing options we have now of Need/Greed/Disenchant/Pass, items will now be flagged as Tank/DPS/Heals and maybe a combination of 2 for items that are not aimed squarely at one role. So if a spirit dagger drops those…

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…
