      Forum Rules (Updated 3/22/14)   07/14/10

      Welcome to the Elitist Jerks forums, a WoW discussion forum targeted towards topics regarding high-end raiding and analysis of game mechanics. We ask you to take a few minutes to read the following before making use of these forums.   First, a point of clarification. The name of these forums is not intended ironically; we have high standards for the discussion that occurs herein, and we're quite unapologetic about it. If you feel our rules are stupid or arbitrary, we don't really care. If you don't wish to follow them, you're welcome to return to the official Blizzard forums.   Following is a brief listing of our forum rules; note that it is by no means exhaustive, as in our experience people are quite innovative in finding new ways to be stupid. These are simply a set of guidelines to get you started in the right direction. If you follow them, you will generally do fine here; however, if you concoct some creative new form of stupidity, our moderators feel no need to restrain themselves in letting you know. All posters are to make an effort to communicate clearly. In particular, all posts should be made in a reasonable approximation of proper English. We realize that a significant number of you are not native speakers, and we do not expect perfection: merely effort. Please obey basic rules of capitalization and punctuation, avoid chatroom abbreviations ("lol", "imo", "u", and the like), and pay at least minimal attention to sentence and paragraph structure. This includes not starting a new paragraph for each sentence. All opinions should be stated as succinctly as possible. Do not make multiple consecutive posts; rather, multi-quote and include all your ideas in a single post. Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point. Do not break a single quoted reply into multiple blocks; doing so needlessly lengthens your post without aiding its readability. And don't provide unnecessary backstory: if it isn't relevant to the question you're asking or the point you're making, we don't need to know about it. All discussion should be both polite and civil. Trolling or flaming in any form is forbidden. Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they are stupid or on drugs and their personal hygiene isn't really relevant to the discussion. Regardless of the merit (or lack thereof) of your argument, it should be made in a way that is neither insulting nor condescending. Whining in any form is forbidden. Blizzard is not incompetent or stupid and they are not intentionally screwing you over and neither is anyone else. If all you're going to do is complain, don't bother posting. Threads should be started if and only if there is some reasonable topic to discuss. If the issue you wish to discuss is covered in an existing thread, use it rather than creating a new one. If you are asking a simple question that you expect to have a simple answer, ask it in one of the "Simple Questions/Simple Answers" threads. But if you feel there is a topic of discussion not well-covered by existing threads, feel free to start a new thread to discuss it. Some sub-forums restrict new members from creating new topics unless they've made at least 10 approved posts, to prevent spamming or bad posts. If you really think it deserves a new thread before you have 10 posts, contact a moderator with your post content. Do not post unless you have something new and worthwhile to say. Do not bump, quote for truth, cross-post, or post only to say thanks. We don't want to hear your funny story about something that happened in your raid last night, your baseless speculation is unproductive, and your idea for a new ability really isn't that interesting. We don't care what gear you are hoping to get or just received. If you have an idea you'd like to share with the community, support it with analysis, testing, or both that indicates you've put some thought into it. (Note: Posting of a new untested spec falls under this rule, unless you have done the grunt work and have information to support your amazing new spec don't even bother posting it here.) Do not beg for hand-holding. These are forums for discussion and analysis, not for answering any question that you might happen to dream up. Search and read before posting--do not post a question unless you are fairly confident that the answer isn't widely known or easily attainable. In particular, we do not want to take a look at your armory or WWS to tell you what you're doing wrong and we're not interested in making your tough gear or spec decisions for you. We expect you to use the search function and also to read the first post as well as the last 5 pages of the thread you are posting in. Chances are your question has already been answered. Additionally, do not post asking for confirmation of a simulation result. If you think there is a problem with the Sim you are welcome to PM the author. All accounts must have a valid WoW profile. If you no longer play and have deleted all characters you used to have, you may select the "No WoW Account" option; otherwise, this information must be filled out for your main character. If you fail to observe this rule you'll be permanently banned from our forums. We do not permit anonymous posting. Do not sign your posts. People can see who you are from the profile printed to the left of each post, so signing your posts is redundant and simply takes up space. Similarly, you do not need to link your armory in your post, as if people wish to see it they can get it from your profile. Do not respond to terrible posts. Do not respond to a blatantly awful post (a post that is in clear violation of the rules) either in an attempt to moderate them or to answer a question they posed. Your post will just be warned/infracted and removed with the post you are replying to. If you feel that a post is in violation of these rules, please report it and the moderators will deal with it as we feel is appropriate. No Advertising. Do not make posts solely for the purpose of advertising your site/blog/twitch/etc. You may post such things if it's relevant and adds to discussion at hand. If you have information to share, share it here with a link back to your blog or whatever. Do not post "I have information, come to my site to get it". That will result in an immediate infraction and post removal. Also, we will remove any link to a site that violates a games TOS/EULA such as gold selling sites.

      If you violate a forum rule, you will receive an infraction. Most infractions are worth one point, although we reserve the right to give you more at any time if we feel you deserve them. If you accumulate too many infraction points, you will receive an automatic (usually temporary) ban which revokes your posting privileges, as follows: 3 Points - 1 Day 5 Points - 3 Days 8 Points - 1 Week 10 Points - 1 Month 15 Points - Permanent

      Familiarize yourself with The Banhammer, an archive of all infractions given by the moderators here; it will give you some examples of what not to do. Also feel free to take a gander over The Dung Heap, which will give you a good idea of what these forums would look like if we weren't such jerks.   Thank you for joining the discussion!

  1. Ok, nvm :) Few questions : - Does the fix require everyone to get the last alpha ? - Do you think it would be possible to add in the soakers special warning text the icon ? like SOAK MELEE LEFT {rt1} ? Thanks !
  2. Any one tested the DBM one in all ? Looks like everyone was getting "melee left soak", even if everyone was last alpha (version r14807)
  3. Yeah sorry, it is working fine. We are still wiping though. Pls include a boss hack next time as well ;)
  4. Hi and happy new year Any chance you can implement this finally ? Thanks in advance !
  5. Hello, Wrath of Guldan on mythic Mannoroth always target 2 ranged, 2 melee and 1 healer Common strat is to soak 4 of them with mage/hunter, and a last one on tanks Can you put an option to put always the same 2 icons on melee, the same 2 icons on ranged and the same icon on the healer ? so the raid markers placement would be ideal ! Many thanks, Myrdinn PS : I know it can have some interaction with BW, but at least an option to force this icon setup would be very nice when people know what they are doing...
  6. Cataclysm Fire Mage Compendium

    It looks like Fire is getting some big buffs on the PTR. Source : Public Test Realm Patch 4.3 Notes - World of Warcraft
  7. Rawr.Mage

    For information, it also looks like [item]59519[/item] is not modeled properly as it is shown as same DPS than [item]59500[/item]. I would say the proc is not working at all, resulting in the trinket being underestimated.
  8. Fire Cataclysm Discussion: OP Updated for Release

    Of course there was a typo in the spec I used : it was 2/36/3. I tend to agree with everything said above : mana game via 'more than competitive' nuke rotations is more an arcane thingy but can be tolerated. High DPS rotation with nuke spells, mana management via low DPS rotation, molten fury management would create an interesting aspect in the Fire rotation. But the worst aspect of the Fire tree is the crit depression that make everything boring or "not enough". Combustion is really horrible at 85: you can be happy if you manage to combustion 3 dots...
  9. Fire Cataclysm Discussion: OP Updated for Release

    I did some fights tonight on the EU beta in Blackwing Descent (10man), with a premade full 346. Spec used was 2/33/3. We got replenishment and blessings. My DPS was not impressive (warlock and retpal were #1 and #2 every try), but I was OOM really fast. I had difficulties to be top5 among 6. I used classic rotation + flameorb, and I felt really a bit behind. Any shares on your feeling in beta raid fights?
  10. The Arcane thread

    Is there any calculation done right now (with Simcraft or Roywyn's calcs ;)) regarding the DPS loss not having improved scorch/winterchill in a 10-raid ? 25-raid ? In 25-man, I think there is no point of contention : imp scorch/winterchill is needed But in 10-man, even caster-heavy raids, I would like to confirm my thoughts it is still interesting to spec arcane if 10% crit debuff is no more present.
