      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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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. ShadowCraft for Warlords of Draenor

    I have noticed the same thing. One bit of detail on my one crafted item - the secondary combo is not available in the pull down list ( 98 haste / 135 Multi on Supple Boots level 3 ). Wondering if that has anything to do with it ...
  2. Rogue Simple Questions

    I do not PvP - however I seem to recall a "thing" where maces had a chance to stun (?). If so - that I am fairly sure is gone ...
  3. ShadowCraft for Mists of Pandaria

    The Wrap isn't missing - I have it equipped. Not sure why it wouldn't show up for you once it is in the DB ...
  4. 5.4 Changes Discussion

    Mined from today. Seems the trick up their sleeve was 4pT15 nerf. Seems a bit early and will likely rejuggle best performing gear set. Assassination Assassin's Resolve now increases damage by 30% (up from 25%). Class Armor Rogue Tier-15 4-piece set bonus now causes Shadow Blades to reduce the cost of all abilities by 15% (down from 40%).
  5. ShadowCraft for Mists of Pandaria

    Quick question if I may - Loaded up SC to check out the new PTR ratings and found that my DPS prediction on 5.3 went down by over 16k. Was this due to errors in the code that you found and were fixed in your 5.4 prep process ? Wondering how the comparison will go ( I understand the # isn't necessarily accurate but I use them relative to eachother ...). ( Edited - large discrepancy accounted for - only 4-500 difference between old and new 5.3 values )
  6. Rogue Simple Questions

    Rogue Leveling Guide (WoW MoP 5.3) - Icy Veins Their guides have done me well for other classes at least. I prefer Combat ...
  7. Rogue Simple Questions Thread: Cataclysm Edition

    In the DW encounter - I try to leave a Rupture running on any target when I have to run off somewhere ( if it works out ). In that case - for Hemmorage bloods - if Rupture was still ticking on the Arm and the bloods are brought over to AoE with the arm ... That could be a case where Rupture triggering Spellweave with beneficial results. I am usually BF / KS on the Bloods as they get moved back to the arm - but I had in my mind it would help. Not confirmed though.
  8. Complete Rogue Reforger tool

    Thanks again Korner for continuing to perfect this :^) One note however - just downloaded and replaced _Inline etc. Dies right at the beginning with this complaint : The program can't start because libgcc_s_dw2_1.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. If this should come from somewhere else than the _Inline - please let me know but ...
  9. The Retribution Concordance - 4.3, Voice of the DPS

    Thank you for your efforts on this Exemplar. I have been keeping the latest version on hand and running it occasionally to make sure I am on track. One note - on your latest version I keep getting a Runtime error on the Gem / Reforge / Enchant Optimize. This happened a version or 2 back ( ont eh 8th you posted about a sheet correction you made to address this ) - wondering if the fix propagated to this latest version. Tried to debug step by step - but I am getting it even on just the downloaded sheet ( no changes ). And yes - I have the Circular refs enabled :^) ( Using Excel - "Type Mismatch" error )
  10. I very much appreciate summary pages - a one stop shop for all my reference pts. However - when you update the OP - can you add a note in the History portion on what you changed ? It is a fairly sizable post - difficult for me to eyeball a change. Thank you !
  11. Pretty sure this happened with Killing Spree as well ... Had a tome nearby ( too nearby ) Sindy in P3 - ended up inside. Was a bit confused at first. Definitely a bummer on Vanish though - got the "noob" callout from the raid when I "missed" my Vanish on Put.
  12. Spreadsheets: The Next Generation

    First - I wanted to say it is very cool you wanted to step up and roll with something as quickly as possible. I like the direction it is going and it looks nice / very easy to use. An observation : Looking at Aslice - trying to configure him as I have already done so ( Armory is jacked but ) - I cannot seem to put more than one Engr "enchant" on him. I was able to put Flexweave on the back, but cannot put the secondary ench on the back slot. Nor am I able to find Engr enchants for hands and feet. Also - Superior Agility doesn't come up as an option for Ench on the boots either. I have tried resetting / confirmed the filter isn't set etc.
  13. Cataclysm Rogue Changes

    Yep. Started a Worgan Rogue last night - only got to lvl 8 - but Sinister Strike is the only combo point builder available. Didn't check tooltip but it must just be an oversight. Got Evis at 5 - otherwise it wouldn't have mattered either ( nothing to spend them on ).
  14. The Rogue UI: Your Silent Partner

    Elkano's BuffBars ... (sp?) Very nice - buffs / de-buffs / poisons in 3 separate lists. It is quite customizable as well - but I leave it pretty much as is. You can place them where you want though.
