    • 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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    Once again I'd like to get my logs analyzed for further improvements. I'm rather happy with my current playstyle and output tho, but obv I bet there are things you can improve :-)   http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/38asph3bvd1v8uqi/   This is a recent log with our HC farm up to Thok (unfortunately with a little AQ-rep-thingy). I'm usually aware of Harmony & LB, but lets see what you guys can find. This is my armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/sylvanas/Treenicillin/simple   I'd also like to get some hints about Thok, here are some of our tries:   http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/xbu188x2h5n7z94t/ http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/9zt13ro3j8rni6va/sum/healingDone/?enc=wipes&boss=71529   I'm really curious about SotF <=> ToL and HotW <=> NV. I'm using ToL & NV while the other Druid is using SotF & HotW. I usually do the following: - try to get RJ on as many ppl as possible - use SM & WG on cooldown - bloom shrooms regularly and replace them as soon as possible - pop NV & ToL around screech7 and make use of LB (just keep RJ for SM) and instant regrowths - use barkskin & ironbark - pop tranq with BoP   With 2 Druids and 1 Disc it feels rather hard to top ppl, but we managed to get 22-27 stacks in P1. I did some math on the talent-thingy and think that you do better with ToL, while HotW & NV seems to be rather equal (ignoring the fact that it's up when you need it).     Any tips appreciated, regards, Tree
  2. [Resto] Mists of Pandaria 5.4

    Thanks a lot for your encouraging words. I never reforged/gemmed for CMs or stuff like that, cse I was mainly "only" going for golds and it wasn't necessary. Most of your hints I was already aware of (e.g. using HLG & DSD instead of the Nazgrim one). The hint that made it is using HotW instead of NV. I couldn't imagine that it's that much difference. I chose wave 7 to pop it (the one with 2 conquerors and 1 small hive-aoe-shit). Pop it ~5 seconds into the wave, dot every mob, wait for enrage. Then Ironbark, pop treants and nuke with your dps. The dmg income is really low, and you are able to finish the wave (even wave27) with 1-4 seconds spare. That way you only have 1 small fireball mob from wave 8 up, when wave 9 hits. That way the only dmg income in the nasty wave 9 is from the aoe mob, which you can more easily heal without any spikes from the fireball-mobs. Made it to wave 36 in my first try I was using HotW :-)
  3. [Resto] Mists of Pandaria 5.4

    Hi guys, I'm looking for some tips for PG@Endless. I can repeatable reach wave 28-30, but those waves fuck me up. I watched Hamlets vid @youtube and I can't see much difference to my playstyle (e.g. spell-distribution is equal). I use Displacer, YG, Typhoon, FoN, Bash & NV. Glyphs: Efflo, RG & Fae Silence. Wave x1: I silence & bash the caster as much as possible, nothing else to do Wave x2: I start with a Typhoon, wait for the rogue to stun the AoE-Hive-Mob, then interrupt it, then stun it. It barely gets a cast off, everything else is easy Wave x3/x4: nothing special Wave x5: I Tranq that one after I interrupt/cc the AoE-Hive-Mob a lot again Wave x6/x7: nothing special Wave x8: knock them all back, silence one, interrupt another. Keep Reju up on everyone, SM/NS for peaks. I usually get that wave down, but lose ~25-30% mana. Wave x9: I immediately start interrupting the AoE-Hive-Mob, cse Wave x8 is still alive. That's where it gets messy. I hot a lot and use Tranq one more time. Sometimes I also spam some RGs to top everyone Wave x10: if I reach that phase and don't get blasted away by the AoE-Hive-Mob from the wave before, I'm oom (only for Wave 30, for wave 9/19 I have enough mana left to recover) What do I do in general: - Fae Silence, Bash and Typhoon when I have spare time (at least Bash & Typhoon on cd, Silence sucks cse of Bear Form and is sometimes risky for Oto) - LBx3 on Oto & Mushroom under Oto obv - Reju on Oto when he gets more dmg than Efflo/LB can heal - Make use of Nourish (2.5-3%) on Oto - Get rid of the Virmen-Debuff with either a Reju or a few Nourish - I dispell the melees. If I have the debuff, I use Deterrence and /cancelaura - I barely pop my Mushroom - I pop a Treant right before the 3rd charge is full (on heavy dmg situations I use all three) - NV nearly on CD - I do not use Cyclone/Roots/Disorienting Roar, cse the important mobs are immune to it The thing is, sometimes I enter waves with full mana cse everything went nice and in the next try I barely have any mana left in the same wave. My main problems: - The AoE-Hive-Mobs are not interrupted and doing a shit load of dmg - The caster-mobs focus one dps, nearly killing them - I never can drink after every 10th wave, because my mobs are not dead yet (I do zero dmg, sometimes I cast a few Wrath and Moonfire the mobs, if I'm @full mana) I really like that feature, but it bothers me that ppl are getting to wave40 -> 60 without any probs and I always struggle @wave30. I cleared ToT 11/13hc and SoO 13/14 so far, playing the Druid since TBC and thought I'm a not too bad tbh. Is there something I overlook? I had ~5 tries in a row now where I wiped @wave29.
  4. [Resto] Mists of Pandaria 5.4

    I liked the FoN change yesterday, they did ~6.5-7% of my healing done with not too much overheal. Tho I'd like to know whether or not it is viable/important to go for another haste cap with FoN ?_?
  5. Thread of Ultimate Stupidity

    Hi guys, so I'm playing a druid for years now, mostly healing. I was progress-raiding ww200 some time, but now I'm only a casual raider. We raid with 1x disc-priest (ofc topping) and 2x resto-druids. We miss buffs during raid, mainly bloodlust & mastery (currently both provided by our BM-hunter, who could provide melee-haste instead). And we disenchant mail-equip at the moment. And we also could need some more nice cooldowns (thinking of capacitor, grounding, stormlash, bloodlust, spiritlink, etc). Druid: Treenicillin @ Sylvanas - Community - World of Warcraft (currently unfortunately in 2nd spec, in resto I have ilvl507, 3050 haste and reforged the rest to mastery with ~9.5k spirit atm) Shaman: Treenatu @ Sylvanas - Community - World of Warcraft Logs: World of Logs - Real Time Raid Analysis Specific logs (ToT 1-2): Dashboard - 10-04 19:01 - TreesLogs - World of Logs Specific logs (ToT 3-6): Dashboard - 11-04 18:09 - TreesLogs - World of Logs (looks broken, dunno y, the nhc kills are good tho) I read a lot of guides (tho I'm not sure yet about reforging, I go for 45+ mastery and massive crit with the 2017 haste point in general). And I also don't expect to beat our disc-priest. My main problem is one thing respectively question to the shaman community: As a druid I have no problem to top people off. I have reju on some and can swiftmend, I can use my instant healing touch every minute, got new mushrooms and my regrowth (healing surge) is pretty fast and heals a lot (and any combination of those). As a shaman I have no problem with missing mobility, but with emergency heals, as I can see no other possibility to quickly provide heals than plain healing surge. Therefore I have the following questions: - do you see major mistakes in my logs? - is it okay as a shaman to have low numbers but therefore provide usability? In fact I really lost my respect to our disc-priest, cse he's only after numbers, but e.g. aoe stun for bats @tortos is somethin pretty nice (or e.g. regularly interrupting sul), but healing done @council e.g. was really low :-( Any hints/tips are appreciated :-) Kind regards, Chris aka Tree PS: also have a lot more mana-issues as I'm used to use every global cd for a heal... tho I usually play with LB-glyph and dispell HST/Fire Ele right before they expire
  6. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    Regarding Tsulung healing: Tsulongevity, Part 1: Druid Strategies | healiocentric "Talents: NS, SotF, HotW (normal)/NV (Heroic) Glyphs: Glyph of Blooming, Glyph of Regrowth, (Glyph of Healing Touch – if you lack 4-piece t14) Between breaths: Get 3xLB up, refresh it with 4 sec to Sun Breath cast; keep Rejuvenation rolling (but do not overwrite a Bathed-in-Light-boosted Rejuv); use Swiftmend as soon as it comes off cooldown, then hold it ’til the next Sun Breath; cast Healing Touch unless you have Omen of Clarity/Clearcasting, in which case cast Regrowth. During breaths: Swiftmend, Rejuvenation, Regrowth, Regrowth, Wild Growth or NS/HT; allow LB to bloom"
  7. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    I do not click with my mouse. I have the trinket bound to a hotkey (alt+1) which I press when it's off cd, I'm infight and below 280k mana. My improvement after Quincunx feedback is, that I now have an indicator on screen if the trinket is off cd.
  8. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    I was not speaking about keybinds in general, sorry. I was speaking about binding trinkets to a spell like Reju in a macro ;-) ofc I try to keybind every spell possible.
  9. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    Thanks a lot for your objective feedback!! I know that I can use ToL and Trinket more often. I don't like to bind them on a spell so I may use a little indicator on the screen when both cooldowns are ready to improve that behaviour. I will also try to re-gem a little and change that glyph.
  10. [Resto] Simple questions + WoL Feedback

    Hi guys, I'm playing my druid since early TBC and switched a lot in specs, being either heal or tank. I remember the times where you rolled LB on everyone or you were using Reju mainly. Time has come to look for serious improvement, thats why I'd really like to get feedback on my char and my playstyle to see where I can improve, so any feedback/constructive criticism is welcome :-) Armory: Treenicillin @ Sylvanas - Community - World of Warcraft WoL: World of Logs - Real Time Raid Analysis Thanks in advance! edit: seems that I logged out with tank-gear. Shouldn't be a big deal as I use an i492-equipset with 3060 haste and reforging to mastery, having 9k spirit.
