    • 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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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!
    • Site Maintenance (Updated 11-12-15)   10/01/15

      Site has been updated to IPS as of 12 November Known Issues So Far: Old wowhead "item" tags are depricated. They may be re-added to fix some issues with older guides, but for most part it's better to just use the modern wowhead.js which auto parses actual wowhead links automatically into tooltips/names. Just post wowhead links in guides and the js will do the rest. You don't need a special BB code for items. Old article links will be broken do to IPS 4 changing url path to remove some pointless "/_/" directory. The articles are still there and can be found in guides menu. You just may not be able to click links from any threads linking to them without editing out the "/_/" part of url. I'll fix most of this little by little when more important stuff is taken care of. External links/google search results may run into same problem. That will just rely on waiting for google to reindex new paths. After you login, you may be thrown to an error page saying page cannot be found if you logged in from the forum index. Harmless though. Just click "forums" and you'll get forum index since redirect after login is busted. The benefactors bar seems to hang/timeout sometimes.

  1. [Ret 6.2 WoD] Retribution Concordance (RetCon)

      Forget the 15%, people just make a big deal out of little things. You found a local haste plateau. Add or lose another 100 haste and haste goes down two the low end.
  2. Ret FCFS Rotation Helper

      Yes, seems broken in the latest version r324. Is it a problem in combination with tullaRange or the built-in range check?
  3. Paladin Blue Posts and Hotfixes

    Might change importance of Mastery for Prot, meh :(
  4. Ret FCFS Rotation Helper

    burghy told me today that he is working on it, but server queues and game crashes are not making life easier. For the HoW 35 percent fix, look three postings above what Killmour was writing.
  5. Paladin Blue Posts and Hotfixes

    Some paladin love:  
  6. Ret FCFS Rotation Helper

    Finally here is the rotation you asked for: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1607924-6-0-PvE-Ret-Paladin-Theorycraft-amp-Discussion?p=29988941#post29988941     So it's important to monitor the Empowered DS buff (draenor perk), the buff to Divine Storm after using Final Verdict (http://wod.wowhead.com/spell=157048), the 4pc t17 Exorcism buff (http://wod.wowhead.com/spell=165439) and the usage of Hammer of Wrath, which can sometimes be used regardless of health wearing 2pc t17 (http://wod.wowhead.com/spell=165440) or at 35% health and lower (new draenor perk).   I guess we get the tier piece buffs with the spell ids posted.
  7. Ret FCFS Rotation Helper

    Your quickfix-solution has some serios issues: * no global cooldown animation * wrong Hammer of Wrath-suggestion with the at-35%-health draenor perk. * other timer or update problems: highlights AW/ES when it's still on cooldown (needs more testing)
  8. You should judge for the physical damage taken debuff unless there is another person in your raid who does it. The speedbuff from LAotL as a gapcloser might be nice, too.
  9. Prot [5.4] - EF You

    Regarding builds: Try a haste/control build, primarily stacking haste after reaching hit and expertise cap. ShoR-uptime and dps should go up which also means smoother incoming damage. Your strength/stamina/haste-thing looks really akward.   Regarding glyphs (dps-wise): Glyph of Focused Shield (singletarget encounter) > Glyph of Word of Glory = Glyph of Holy Wrath   Execution Sentence also contributes to more dps in a singletarget fight then Light's Hammer. Use your CD's (Avenging Wrath/Holy Avenger) when you are taunting and then burn the boss. After that there really is not much you can do because high vengeance is the determing factor for tank dps.
  10. This was most certainly a fix for an ability lag issue with the tier 16-4pc proc and DP. Regarding dps, stick with SW for single target encounter and DP for aoe heavy fights like Spoils or Galakras.
  11. Thread of Ultimate Stupidity

    Roughly 4.5 to 5.0% overall damage in a patchwork fight. A 2k dps upgrade over the standard STR meta according to askmrrobot.
  12. Capacitive Primal Diamond Meta Bug <- reported multiple times on US servers after the weekly restarts. Edit: Seems fixed on EU servers. Meta is procing just fine.
  13. No april joke, they are acutally testing the change to SoL on the PTR. Confirmed by GC via Twitter: https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/status/322757810993635331 I guess 5.3 is going live within the next 2 or 3 weeks, so we will see if they keep it at 30%. Using Exemplar's Excel sheet (you can easily set SoL to 130% there) this would be roughly a 11-12% DPS gain to our overall DPS.
  14. GC just answered to my twitter posting: https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/status/322035767390117891 They are working on a hotfix.
  15. It's true. Can be easily tested on a target dummy with a swing timer addon (i.e. quartz). Opened ticket for that issue, hopefully there is a hotfix incoming. Edit: Ticket was responded within 5 minutes. GM told me, there is no known swing timer issue with our tier15 set and that it should be reported seperately (Submit Bug button).
