    • 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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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. [Balance] WrathCalcs

    Maybe this shines some light for you: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1313453-Balance-WrathCalcs-and-SimCraft-Guide   Anyway, in my oppinion neither of them is really accurate compared to reality - at least not for the numbers. Eventually, it's not the pure numbers that matter but what decissions those tools help you make. I tend to trust WC more plus in the end WC helps you get more into details on some specific short time rotations (for example what spell are best to you to get the most dmg in shortest time on Nazgrim's banners).   One thing both tools have an issue nowadays is the dps talent choise. Both point at FoN as top single target dps talent and WoL doesn't seem to reflect that. Some people claim it's because top moonkins simply feel better with INC but I'm not fully convinced by that theory.
  2. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    Malkorok heroic is where I have to glyph Starfall so I'm not bothered with add aggro (as they have debuff aura that gives you slow and massive spellcasting speed debuff). I used to glyph it for Immsersus and Sha at first but eventually it appeared to be unneccessary.
  3. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    Are ME roots more resistant to breaking? Because priests' or shamans' roots seem much more reliable if you have to actually dps down the rooted adds.
  4. Mmoc 2p Balance bonus is: Why people are saying there is something out of sync there? It's just flat dmg bonus while in Eclipse.
  5. [Balance] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    Wouldn't INC be better on Jin'rohk due to plus dmg boost from pools? When I've done Jin'rohk this reset with FoN it seemed much worse than what I did with INC. However, they were bugged at that point so I will give them one more try on this boss next reset.
  6. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    Starfall and [H] Dark Animus. Is it safe to use it on earlier phase of the fight?
  7. So far I have noticed 2 technical issues with FoN: - when I macro all 3 casts into 1 button I get 2 trees and need to press one more time for the 3rd - anyone has an idea how to resolve it? - sometimes they just stand there and do nothing for a 2-3 secs - most often if I switch targets; will need to observe this more.
  8. I have tried this rotation yesterday a bit and I am not convinced - each time the outcome was worse than standard rotation. The main difference between CA and non-CA state is having 2 eclipsed DoTs therefor as I imagine the gain of the rotation is to have both those DoTs under influence of trinkets and meta. However, Starfall itself isn't often enough to proc everything before DoT application. Plus the best uptime of everything happens in about 20secs from initial proc which in new rotation is partially out of eclipse. I will try testing with casting SS before DoT application. Still, I am not sure the eventual gain is worth changing the rotation as I quite often have reasonable procs during CA in standard rotation.
  9. A question to clarify: does the "new rotation" apply only to the start of the fight?
  10. I have noticed an interesting thing. In my gear levels it often happens than I still have a lot time on DoTs from previous Eclipse just before leaving the current one. I occassionally did not refresh them at all and they lasted till I have enterned next Eclipse. However, I wonder if the GCDs saved on this are worth skipping an eclipsed DoT. The other thought I had is to only refresh eclipsed DoT in this kind of situation, however, this makes DoT timers kinda messed up later on. Or should I just ignore the time left on DoTs and always refresh them once per Eclipse.
  11. Have you tried TinyDPS? It's extremly minimalistic dmg meter and it never ever lagged me during MoP.
  12. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    What was the nature of those issues? As for the SS procs, I guess something might be on afterall. I checked out the log in details and I have noticed SS procs out of the blue sky when dino was up (when I was still using MF/SnF on it). I still would like to have FF in my macro tho. It would be perfect to have MF and FF in one macro so does FF is used if MF can't be, but simple /cast Moonfire /cast Faerie Fire doesn't work.
  13. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    With so many targets dotted on the fight already I find this one additional target bit irrelevant - SS is already a machine gun. And the convinience of using a spell that you can cast with your back to the target is priceless. Besides, I even doubt the pink one procces SS since I don't see MF/SnF doing any dmg at all to it in the logs and without actual crits I don't think there can be an SS proc (did a fast check now - will look into it more when I'm back from work).
  14. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    The problem with Typhoon, MF and SnF is that you need to have the target in front of you. FF comes really handy here. I'm using a handy macro for this: /tar Direhorn Spirit /cast Faerie Fire /targetlasttarget No need to worry about where the pink one is - just push it once in a few casts.
  15. [Balance] Encounter Mechanics [MoP]

    [H] Jin'rokh the Breaker AMS timed well just before Ionization cast will prevent you from getting the debuff. The CD will be ready for every cast.
