    • 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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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. League of LegendseSports For some time now, Bora "Yellowstar" Kim has been the face of Fnatic League of Legends. This was perhaps never more true than after the World Championships in 2014, when every other member of the team left to pursue other paths. This put Yellowstar in the position of not only being team captain, but helping to mold four new players into a cohesive team. Everyone involved in that process praised Bora for all of the work he did, and with only one more roster change (bringing back ADC Rekkles), Fnatic went on to an impressive showing at Season 5 Worlds. While Yellowstar has become almost synonomous with Fnatic, he will now be leaving the organization. For their part, Fnatic did their best to try to keep him, offering both a higher salary and options for his future after he retires as a player. However, Bora is determined to seek out new challenges, and that desire is bringing him to the North American LCS for the 2016 season. This would normally spark a lot of discussion and speculation, but many fans already believe they know where he's headed. Team SoloMid has been rumored to have signed Yellowstar since before it was announced he was leaving Fnatic, and that theory only became more popular when the TSM merch store briefly had the option to purchase a Yellowstar jersey, before that was quickly removed. If Yellowstar ends up joining a different team, that would be the move that would generate the most surprise among fans at this point. If Yellowstar does join TSM, it would give that organization arguably the strongest lineup it's ever had. Bora's in-game play and game knowledge are extremely well-regarded, and he could lessen the shot-calling burden on mid-laner Bjergsen (who has stated in the past that he never wanted that responsibility) if the team so desired. The NA LCS is about to be put on notice, as one of Europe's best players is coming state-side.   Source/image credit: Fnatic View the full article
  2. League of LegendseSports Today, the CJ Entus organization announced that mid laner Shin "CoCo" Jin-young and jungler Kang "Ambition" Chan-yong have left the League of Legends team. This announcement comes only a couple weeks after the team finished 2nd in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup. Ambition is moving on to join Samsung Galaxy Pro Game Team, but nothing has been made official regarding CoCo's future. Here is the statement released by CJ Entus: Samsung has been re-stocking their roster, after a disappointing finish in both the LCK Summer Split and the LoL KeSPA Cup. Joining Ambition will be former Dignitas AD Carry Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-in as the team attempts to turn things around. Right now, incumbent jungler and AD Carry Eve and Fury (respectively) are still listed as starters, so the organization will have some decisions to make for the coming year. It would be difficult to imagine that Ambition will not take over the starting job, but for now, we'll just have to wait and see. View the full article
  3. Heroes of the StormeSportsMMO German company Bossland has created multiple popular bots for Blizzard Entertainment games, including "StormBuddy", "HonorBuddy", and "DemonBuddy", for Heroes of the Storm, World of WarCraft, and Diablo II, respectively. Unsurprisingly, creating cheating tools has landed the company in legal hot water, with Blizzard filing a lawsuit against James Enright and several other unnamed parties. However, that's where this story takes an interesting turn. While Enright is described as the mastermind behind the operation, that may not be completely accurate. The websites for the cheating programs list Bossland GmbH as the owner, and Bossland’s CEO Zwetan Letschew states that Enright is a freelancer. Apparently, Blizzard offered Enright a deal, and while all of the details have not been made public, it seems it compelled him to hand over the source code for the Heroes of the Storm bot, StormBuddy. This has caused outrage for Letschew, and led to him making the following statement: “Today Blizzard acted in a manner as shady as possible for a multi-billion-dollar corporation. We were informed that the deal compelled [Enright] to submit the entire source code of Stormbuddy, which is actually the intellectual property of Bossland GmbH, to Blizzard. Activision Blizzard is fully aware that Bossland GmbH, and not Apoc, is the owner of the intellectual property of Honorbuddy, Demonbuddy and Stormbuddy, considering that there are six cases that are still in progress […] in Germany.” Letschew now accuses Blizzard of copyright infringement: “Blizzard now possesses the whole Stormbuddy source code. There was no permission given by Bossland GmbH, nor were we contacted by Activision Blizzard, nor had [Enright] the rights to give out our intellectual property.” It can certainly be difficult to tell who's in the right or wrong in cases like these, but a Blizzard representative did release this statement regarding the matter: [url={url}]View the full article[/url]
  4. Thanks for your help mate, my apologies for all the clutter. Feel free to remove the posts should you see fit.

  5. DBM 6.2.15 Released

    Probably same sound. But what are you asking, to stop the sound? to change the sound?
  6. DBM 6.2.15 Released

    So what is it that you want? The default sound for that is the pvp flag sound, unless it's been changed.
  7. DBM 6.2.15 Released

    There is never a trumpet sound from DBM. beware plays for mostly aoe attacks and not debuffs.
  8. 269893World of WarcraftMMOCrafting Somewhere along the way Professions in World of Warcraft went horribly wrong. Once almost required for any player hoping to advance in end game, Professions in Warlords are a mere shadow of what once was. In fact, it can be argued that Professions in the current expansion are hardly worthwhile at all. That all stands to change in Legion, the next WoW expansion. With a plethora of updates and new features, developers are working hard to turn the dismal state of Professions around. Legion Profession Overview The idea in Legion for Professions is to give us much more stuff to do. If you want to log in and spend some time doing something worthwhile with your Professions, you should be able to do that. Professions should feel useful, fun, and something that players want to spend their limited in game time on. Here are some of the ways Professions will be changing in Legion to achieve these goals: Profession Recipes No longer will your Profession Trainer be the sole source of recipes for your Profession. Let's face it, clicking a bunch of times and spending some gold to know every single recipe just is not fun. Instead, players will now be sent out into the world to find recipes via quests. These quests will immerse your character in the story, letting you meet epic characters, further your knowledge of the world, and learn some really cool recipes along the way. Also coming to Profession recipes in Legion are Recipe Ranks. No longer will your journey end once you have learned a recipe. Instead, each recipe will have three ranks that players can go out into the world and try to achieve. Each rank will allow you to make that item more efficiently and better than before. Gathering Nodes If you have any of the gathering Professions, you know how frustrating the process can be. You swoop down to pick an herb only to have someone click it seconds before you did. Even worse, you are fighting a mob in front of ore. All you have to do is defeat it and you can mine away. Just as you kill your foe, another player takes your node without a second though. You are filled with rage and loathing. Legion stands to bring that rage into check. No longer will nodes be stolen from any player. Instead, each node will be shared. Every player that sees a node to collect will be able to harvest it. Hallelujah. Improved UI With tons of new recipes and recipe ranks being added into the mix, the Profession UI was starting to look a bit cluttered. Legion will give us a new and improved UI that will make managing our Professions easier than ever before. With a bigger viewable list of recipes a space for recipe details and a cleaner feel in general, the new UI looks glorious. Also notable in the new UI are a newly added Favorites list designed to hold your most used recipes for easy access and separate Learned and Unlearned recipe tabs that will allow you to keep track of what recipes you still need and where to find them. Special Crafted Gear One of the major ideas behind crafting professions in Legion is that the gear you create should feel special. If we are honest, most gear we create doesn't really feel that unique, even though they are specially crafted. Examples of some crafted items that now feel super special include the Semi-Automagic Cranial Cannon that is made from gun parts and allows you to shoot bullets from your head and the Bloodthirsty Furystone Gorget; a Neck with a class specific buff that increases your run speed while worn. The idea is to make crafted pieces worth making and worth wearing. Obliterum Finally, coming in Legion is a new material called Obliterum. Obliterum it is essential to almost every crafting Profession. This demonic ash can be used to make your crafted items more powerful. To obtain Obliterum players will need to break down other crafted items at a special forge that will eventually be unlocked in Dalaran. This opens up a whole other avenue of use for old gear apart from the standard selling and disenchanting of the past. Other Profession Changes Primary Professions Not many details have been released about specific changes coming to Primary Professions. However, we got a glimpse at the future of Inscription at BlizzCon 2015 and here is what we know so far: Major glyphs are gone. Glyph as many spells as you want. New consumable: Vantus Rune. Calls out particular boss. Secondary Professions Like Primary Professions, there are likely big changes coming to each Secondary Profession in Legion. Here is what we know so far: Archaeology Be taken on expansion length campaign. Particular focus on collecting things you can use/equip. Cooking Discover new recipes using Sous Chef. Bacon. Fishing Feel more like an adventure. More exciting. First Aid Exciting bandage-related content! 2 More bandages. View the full article
  9. DBM 6.2.15 Released

    Almost all the sounds used by dbm are blizzard sounds built into wow and played through PlaySoundFile with blizzards built in path. so you can't extract them from DBM. You can extract them with a casc browser probably.   DBM only has the countdown voices and most of those with exception of heroes of storm and corsica voices are for use with DBM only by permission of recording authors. Corsica is public domain, and heroes voices are used with blizzards permission to use within another blizzard game. i suspect if you tried to use those for anything non blizzard related they might not like it either.
  10. NEWS: Legion Challenge Modes

    268569World of WarcraftMMODungeons Challenge Modes are coming to World of Warcraft: Legion. However, they will be a far cry from the Challenge Mode we are currently used to. With changes and improvements galore, Challenge Modes in the next expansion are shaping up to be one of the most interesting and fun features of Legion. Read onward to learn more about the current state of Challenge Modes and what we can expect to see in the next new WoW expansion. Warlords of Draenor Challenge Mode Currently, Challenge Mode is a pretty straightforward system designed as a way for players to revisit old dungeons and collect loot. Timed instance runs, the Challenge Modes we are familiar with today scale your gear down to ensure that the instances will still remain challenging. With three tiers of rewards, players earn better loot based on how fast they complete the zone. This is, of course, not such a bad system. However, it can feel rather redundant and dull. The dungeons never get harder, your gear is always scaled down, and to achieve the best rewards players push through the dungeon at a breakneck pace. While this may seem exhilarating at first, it quickly becomes dull with little room for variety or an increase in difficulty. Challenge Mode dungeons in Legion are set to shake up the same old routine and bring us an entirely new experience. Legion Challenge Mode Overview In the past, Dungeons have managed to fall along the wayside. Players typically do them when they are first released and they quickly become irrelevant as the expansion progresses. Thus, the Dungeon Challenge Mode was introduced to freshen things up. However, as mentioned above, it has some major flaws. Challenge Modes in Legion will hopefully deliver an engaging experience that keeps Dungeons relevant both in terms of difficulty and reward. First and foremost, Challenge Mode in Legion have been redesigned to be a true opened ended game experience that can appeal to many player types. Instead of scaling the players down, the Dungeons will be scaled up to meet the needs of the players taking them on. This will allow players to take on Dungeons at the difficulty they need and want them to be and earn rewards that match the challenge. Perhaps surprisingly, the timer remains in Legion Challenge Mode Dungeons. However, it has been far improved and simplified from the current system. This feature has been condensed into a single timer that may be considered on par with the current Silver tier seen in game now. The idea is to get rid of the mad dash to complete a Dungeon, instead the focus will be on making core Dungeon game play more epic than ever before. To take on a Challenge Mode Dungeon, you will first need to be in possession of a Challenger's Keystone (discussed below). These Keystones unlock the Dungeon for your group and provide information like how difficult the Dungeon will be and what reward you will get from it. They can also come equipped with various modifiers to keep your group on their toes. The idea here is to keep these Dungeons interesting, so that players continue to play them no matter how far into the expansion we get. Challenger's Keystone As mentioned above, Challenge Mode Dungeons in Legion will all begin with a Challenger's Keystone. How you will obtain this Keystone remains to be seen, although it may be through various world events. This Keystone points you to a random Legion dungeon and each will have a power level associated with it. The power level determines the difficulty of the dungeon you will take on and also the reward you will receive from it. The Keystone can be upgraded by beating the timer in the corresponding Dungeon. If you fail, the stone will be depleted and will be unable to be used again. With that being said, you will still gain loot for completing the Challenge Dungeon. At higher levels the Keystone throws an extra curve ball into the mix; modifiers. These modifiers are designed to keep you and your group on your toes and keep Dungeons interesting. Examples of modifiers that may come with your Keystone include: Enemies Enrage Extra Enemies Exploding Corpses Periodic Damage Challenge Mode Rewards Of course, if you are going to be doing Challenge Modes, you are probably expecting some kind of reward and you won't be disappointment. The system starts just a small step above Heroic Dungeons, meaning that almost every player can take on Challenge Modes. As you might expect, the more difficult the Dungeon, the better the rewards. Designed to compliment or take the place of raiding, the sky is the limit with this redesigned Legion feature. View the full article

  15. DBM 6.2.15 Released

    There is one for the orb spread mechanic. if ground phase and is a ranged, range 8 shows in phase 1. melee doesn't show one because melee are not valid targets for unstable orbs. if ranged are standing with melee then fight is being done wrong. as for the barrage, you can't range frame that. it's a cone that comes from the boss. there is no way to detect boss facing or location with mods. however it's also pretty obvious which way the boss is facing by looking at the giant robot so that should be enough to move.
