HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

All the Colours of the Rainbow:
Dungeon Groups 101

This post was inspired by the hundreds of comments that I’ve read over the years from players too afraid to group up with strangers to complete dungeons because they are worried that they will make mistakes. And I’ve been there. Most people fear of failure. You just need to put it in perspective.

Carry Me

On Saturday the daily was Heroic Oculus. I picked up the quest and put myself in LFG and had an invitation before I had finished stocking up on candles. I was the last member (score!) and I was told to dps (omg!).

Bringing Down the Bloodlust
Instance Servers

I’ve always kind of assumed the instances servers are battlegroup-wide. I run lots of instances. Well at least the daily heroic each day. It doesn’t take long to get a group going from LFM. But obviously we’re not doing enough to bring down our instance servers. If that’s the case we need to organise a mass instance-launching assault while we still can. Before Blizzard fix it. And we’re running out of time!

A Little Love for Protection Warriors

In Wrath of the Lich King, when I join a group, I like to be healing Protection Warriors over pretty much every other type of tank. Why? I’ll try to explain.

The Art of PUGing 25 Mans: Part 2

Part Two: Finding the PUG Holy Grail

As promised here is the 2nd part of my advice on finding PUG 25 mans – enjoy!

The Art of PUGing 25 Mans: Part 1

I’ve been trying to make a real effort with Restori’s gear the last couple of weeks.

After 3 week of intensive PUG analysis and many catch ups with Cass I decided to split up my advice into 2 posts. This post will focus on you the player, the raider.

How the Epic and Superior Achievements are Ruining WoW

One thing I’ve noticed playing on Caelestrasz is the common linking of Epic and Superior to determine the value of a player when forming groups. Raid Leaders forming groups ask for it and players looking for a group advertise these two achievements.

Why Mages love Mp5

I named the topic of this post Why Mages Love Mp5 because I’m looking for some answers. Honestly when an Mp5 item drops I really don’t expect anyone except the Holy Paladins and Restoration Shamans to roll for it.

When you are the 5th Wheel

It was late at night when I was invited to heal a heroic UK run. By the time I’d arrived at the summoning stone (a 5 minute flight from Dalaran) I noticed that party chat was completely silent.

Leading more Successful PuGs Raids

About 10 people that I used to raid with have formed a regular Naxxaramas 25 PuG on Barthilas. Please don’t make their mistakes. Here’s how you can make your next PuG more successful – especially if you or a friend is putting it together.
