Priestly Power Auras Revisited

A bit of a cheat this post as I’m simply reproducing one of my static pages I have just updated, but I think this topic actually deserves special attention. Power Auras Classic is one of my favourite add ons as it replaces many addons that I used in the past as it allows me to create visual and ausio alerts that I design and position for procs like “clear casting”,…

Add On: GTFO

A real quick post to plug my current best friend type addon, GTFO. Put in the authors own words, GTFO is: GTFO provides an audible alert when you’re standing in something you’re not supposed to be standing in. In some cases, you’ll be warned before you start taking damage. This mod improves your situational awareness and is recommended for dungeon divers and raiders of all skill levels as even the most seasoned…

wowTrader – a fantastic tool for making gold

Just a real quick post to introduce you all to a fantastic tool, wowTrader, its not a nasty gold seller site so no need to panic, I haven’t gone to the darkside.  In wowTraders own words “it is primarily a site built around the ability to view auction house prices over time for your server so you know what items are actually worth. Each item has an individual page with graphs showing recent history, long…

Patch 4.0.6 is here!

Just a real quick link to the official patch notes as hosted by MMO-Champion. Their post specifies only US realms but no mention is made of us EU folks having to wait an extra week. Key points: Your class has changed, read your notes; Some glyphs have changed, check yours; A few UI changes have happened, update your addons; Heroics have been tweaked (that is many nerfs and a few…

Addon: Power Auras

Power Auras was created to provide visual warnings when you gain very shorts buffs or debuffs, it allows you to draw in the centre of the screen around your character and is very customizable with many built in visual effects. Since its launch it has evolved and can now track Buffs/Debuffs (whatever their name) Debuff Types (like Magic, Curse, Poison, Disease, Silence, Stun, Crowd Control etc) Combo points Harmful area…

The Backstory: After The Dragon….

If you have been reading my blog for a while or been dedicated enough to go back in time you may remember or stumble across a post I made back in May 2010 about how I got started in raiding and I never finished the story so over the next few weeks I will make one of my posts one of my backstory. After killing Onyxia (level 60) I was…

Preparing for Deathwing

In only a few short weeks, we will begin the charge to kill Deathwing, but before we even think about the ultimate goal of the next expansions we need to consider what steps we can take now to help us. The tasks can be broken down into a few small chunks under 2 wider categories, namely things we can do before December 7th and things that can be done after…

Flood and Blunder

Image courtesy of UK Jigsaw Puzzle Club This post has been specifically written for inclusion in the November Wow Gold Blogging Carnival over at Just My Two Copper, while not specifically a gold making blog I do from time to time cover my gold making activities in posts. As the end of Wrath nears I have focused more in-game time on learning the finer details of the art of gold making and along…

Grid for Nothing and Your Clique is Free

Patches are time for change in Warcraft be the tiny ones or behemoths like 4.0.1 which we have just received. Blizzard document the major changes that they make but behind the scenes they also make tweeks and major overhauls that go completely undocumented outside Blizz HQ. As a certified add on junkie the 1st job when logging in is to discover what addons are broken. The second job is to determine if…

4.0.1: Initial thoughts

Well the first few hours of WoW 4x is done. The game is looking rather stable and the priest class looking rather healthy from my very limited playtime in game so far. Not that I didn’t spend much time in game, just not much time playing due to complete addon meltdown, now I am used to addons breaking after game patches but this was simply chaos and I am sure…
