I personally have found the "checklist" to be a viable way to avoid nightmares in certain situations. But it is totally reliant that everyone is honest , I have had people(usually pugged raid members ) say they know the fights and yet they don't show any signs of having done them before ,I'll use the Heigan the unclean fight as an example I always use the 4 quarter strat, and there is always someone that runs all the way to the other side and then wonders why they're eating floor.I have also seen that after explaining the strats to the new people that it can take 2 to 3 repetitions to get my point across.Perhaps its my way of explaining but I try to keep it as simple as possible , nobody wants to hear someone talking for 20 minutes before each boss encounter. So I attempt to cram as much information on the encounter as I can into a 5 minute explanation and I have had mixed results ( witch I feel is due to people losing interest in the strategy and wanting to run in blindly and just sword and board the boss to death with no clue what to be on the lookout for( we all know this never goes well for most encounters )
I currently raid on the malygos server and perhaps its the quality of raiders I am finding or I need to revamp my approach to preparing the raid for each encounter.So in short I guess you cant teach old raiders new tricks , and when dealing with new raiders be patient and pray they have a decent attention span .
I am full pve but when i played arenas with mi DK, i was in a 2v2 team with a holy pala and it was so easy except vs pala holy and pala retry, or pala retry and priest.
This is cause a paladin can make a fear to our pets inmediatly or just kill it in 4 seconds so we dont have stun, also if they are 2 palas they have 2 divine shields and if they are pala retry-priest disci, the pala just go to kill mi mate, they stun me, fear me.... and then the priest dispells his divine shield and mi mate dies.
Any idea how to win that in 2v2? mi mate try to take me out of fears and stuns but we only win few times when i go to the priest and mi mate use fredom on me, pet stun-silence, and priest must die.
In terms of which presence to use, I almost always go with Unholy - unless being faced with classes with very high survivability. The 15% speed boost is essential for catching up to a kiting class, and the -1sec to my GCD ensures that I have far greater burst damage than nearly every other class with the number of instant strikes we have, at least in the terms of several seconds.
Classes with higher survivability tend to eat my damage and I find myself waiting several seconds for my runes to be back up.
This maybe a stupid question I do not PVP that much. I am wondering If like sports, If I PVP more will I get better or no. It seem like I just panic when I'm getting attacked, maybe I'm not using the right spell combo's Thanks for your help guys.
Can someone give me the best strat they have in order to
obtain the killing Herald Volazj achievement in Heroic Ahn'Kahet: The Old Kingdom?
My friend said it was only possible for him after he took a group till the end,
kicked them all, got 4 geared dps guildies, and Bloodlusted and burned him down
before the bastard got a Insanity spell out. Since I don't want to do that, any other suggestions?
Ive don alot of reading here and i was hoping that you guys could just confirm what i seem to be seeing
Frost still= survival but is still the lowest single target dps spec
frost fire has slipped to the next lowest single target dps spec?
fire spec now the NO2 spec
Arcane the NO1 dps spec by a fair way BUT with potential mana issues on long fights and reduction of dps if evo is needed
i must admit i have good gear but latency of 400 and as frost fire build im about 4 k on patchwork.. which feels low to me ive watch another arc mage with less gear pull 5 K... i think my LB cast is off so maybe i can squeeze a bit more but it seems to me that i need a respec.
If anyone can confirm the abouve that would make my decision alot easier thx
Hello all. I'm new to this forum and so far loving it, I've learned allot from this tread alone it's helped to make my pally freakin' sweet. I have a level 70 Ret/Holy Pally and I'm getting to the point of worrying about what to get for my end game PvP gear. This is my first pally, and so far I'm having a blast with him, even made him my main over my level 75 DK. But I still have allot to learn.
I'm thinking of getting PvE gear also, but not as worried about it as much I am PvP stuff or should I? Problem is I'm not exactly sure what to go with. Can any of you please give me an idea of what I should be looking for?
I've searched the web for anything on this and most everything I've found is out of date about old patches' gear, not even updated to WotLK, or just listings of some gear sets and their stats, which I still can't tell much about.
I wanna know whats best for a DPS pally at the moment with the current patch, be it an armor set or a mix of different stuff. Weapon, boots, and all, and if somehow I can squeeze in any amount of healing bonus without taking away from any of my possible DPS, that would be great too. I would of researched this and asked around more sooner, but I've just been focusing on leveling and doing some Battleground runs here and there.
Oh that reminds me, is any of the gear earned threw honor points from Battlegrounds or Arena currently worth it? I don't see many players on my server using or wearing that stuff, so I'm not sure if it's because of the time you have to put into getting that stuff or it's just not worth it.
And one last thing. These new Ret T8 pally sets coming soon, are they going to be worth my time or is the current stuff just as good or better?
Well, that's it I think. Hope I'm not asking about too much stuff at once. >_< Please answer for me as much as you can and I'll be looking forward to your reply's. Appreciate the help.
