Re: Nit Picking my log

I need to look at my macro for incarnation. I have /cast incarnation first but it always seems to cast beserk and tf before it. For the SR fall off I was trying to pool energy before the incarnation beserk knowing the glyph would refresh sr and misjudged how long until beserk and incarnation would ...

Re: Pawkets' WeakAuras2 Display (WoD)

A new alpha version for WA2 just went up. Is there anything new that could be used to prevent the icon sweep flicker (other than OmniCC?)

Re: WoD Beta General Discussion

Interesting thing about GoS is that it's no longer only a newbee-trap. I think we shouldn't underestimate that it conserves about 10% haste worth of energy gives you a couple extra combo points to work with. While ferocious bite isn't spectacular DPE, on fights like Protectors in MoP it would allow ...

Re: Alpha Testing

I'm guessing you didn't weapon swap judging from the numbers? You'd get a lot better results if you did, I don't think its worth it if you don't (similar to live). Hrm, I haven't actually.

Re: Alpha Testing

Yup, its about a 5% DPS gain in SimulationCraft. A player can probably eek a little bit more out of it since they can be better at identifying when they will or won't cause resource waste. I already poked Celestalon about it, but I assume they don't care to fix it until balancing starts happening. ...

Re: Alpha Testing

Bear thrash hits like a truck at the moment since it scales with our kitty mastery. I did an extra run on a mythic dummy (raid buffed) where I used bloodtalons (what was formerly DoC) on thrash/rip and rake and shifted to bear form after I burned my energy to keep thrash running. Check it out: http:...

Re: Alpha Testing

The prior 2pc bonus was weak , whereas this bonus depends on how much we can abuse it. Rake/Rip/Thrash on one target give 3/3 + 3/2 + 3/3 = 3.5 energy/sec. Add in Bear Thrash and a few more targets and it's way overpowered. Venom Zest (L100 Rogue) caps out at 3 targets. Maybe there's an ICD. Edit: ...

Re: Alpha Testing

Incarnation + Shred/Rake seems to be bugged at the moment, awarding 5CPs every time so you can just shred -> finisher repeatedly until it runs out. Also not sure if this was server-related but when I had incarnation up the 5CP's seemed to have a 2-3sec delay before they appeared. Might just be the b...

Re: Leafkiller's MoP Feral/Guardian Ovale Script

Yes, that's true. I just found it funny that Blizzard confirmed that 400ms server-side lag that we had experimentally determined during our adventures in figuring out how to make Ovale keep track of aura snapshots more accurately. Polling at intervals makes sense, but I would not have guessed that ...

If we don't have to play defensively concerning energy then keeping the extra damage conversion isn't such a bad thing (assuming we'll reasonably prioritize FB in our rotation.

Re: What addons do you use for proper snap shoting?

DroodFocus does have snapshotting support by default, it's just minimal. I've been told you can configure it to show the ratios in text but I don't know if that's true. Personally I use this WeakAura & Ovale. Having 2 addons tracking it is nice since it's easier to see when something might be funny...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I'm not seeing how the early nerf to Heart of the Wild says anything about the concept of the talent. It was obviously overpowered at the time and needed to be brought down. It wasn't nerfed for its design; it was nerfed for its strength (relative to other classes and relative to other talents). I ...

They did not say Rejuv blanketing was something they didn't want. They said they wanted it to be a viable style if folks like it.

New DoC... I dont really like this change. Something besides increased HT and rejuv would be nice.

They also removed most if not all defensive raid cooldowns from tanks and some classes already received new ones to compensate (mages, warriors).

It's odd that they would give a shapeshifting glyph to our GCD-capped specs. I take it it's mostly meant for PvP then (ie. emergency bear -> convert mana to hp).
