    • 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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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. Great video. Very concise explanation. Also nice to get a first look for me in the Daggerfall Covenant lands, haven't rolled that faction yet. Seems a bit more beautiful than when I visited the provinces back in Daggerfall :P
  2. ESO Classes

    I've had the same problem. The only problem I've had with ESO so far is the stress that all the possible choices put in front of you. Maybe it's just the Min/Maxer in me, I don't know. Of course, it isn't the short coming of the game, it's just being afraid to make it to veteran ranks with one class and find out it's subpar. Only time will tell for now.
  3. ESO Classes

    So ESO has had a fair time out of the gate already. Most people haven't got to the end game content yet, so in the mean time, we'd like to know what class and build you are running on your characters. Did you have a hard time choosing between different classes/builds and how does your class build flow in combat.   I spent many hours switching between a Nightblade, Sorcerer and Dragonknight. I finally settled in with a Dual Wielding, Heavy armor Dragonknight where I use flame spells and dip into Dragon for healing/defensive CDs. I still get this nagging feeling that I might like Sorcerer better but for now, I'm focusing on Dragonknight.   My Dragonknight build has a nice combination of damage output and tankiness that allows me to not only do solo content well but group content like Dark Anchors or map bosses.
  4. I'm still not convinced what I will level first. I'm thinking about taking my Nightblade to max first and maybe work on my Dragonknight some other time. Also still trying to decide if I want to roll Dark Elf for my Dragonknight since the bonus to fire damage will synergize well with the Dragonknight.
  5. Is ESO only for PvPers?

    Well we don't know much about the end game yet. However, Zenimax claims that there is a lot for PvEers to do and definitely there is alot of lore to work with. However, they have put alot of effort into promoting the PvP aspect of the game so we shall see.
  6. Will EJ have a guild in ESO?

    I'll be looking for you Arxkanite this weekend then :P   I've had Bronchitis the last few weeks so I missed the last beta weekend so that hampered my data collection.
  7. Yeah, I'm still waiting to see what kind of bonuses that an Imperial gives my character and see if it synergizes with any of my class builds.
  8. Will EJ have a guild in ESO?

    I'm Ebonheart Pact through and through. So that's where my guild will be seated.
  9. Crafting

    So this last beta weekend, I worked heavily on mastering crafting and I have to say, I think it's going to be one of the selling points for me playing ESO and I hope some of it's features get added to the next TES game.   So the way you gain new crafting styles is from crafting books, which are found at random around the world in containers but have a higher chance in bookcases and nightstands. Also, it's best to get to working on traits asap when playing ESO. Each trait takes several hours to research but are well worth it. What makes crafting so good is for instance, I can make a sword with my level, the trait I want such as "4% increased attack speed" and then after you finish the weapon, you can add an enchantment to the weapon for another effect.   Now you have a strong weapon but why stop there? Then you can add tempers to the weapon. One type of temper will turn the weapon from a white item to a green weapon. Then another will turn the green weapon to a blue weapon and so on. I crafted a blue text weapon (superior I think is what it's called) and then added a trait and enchantment to it and I just tore through my opposition.
  10. Classes

    I tried out a sorcerer archer a bit on the beta but I think I started to wear myself a little thin and I started to get bored with it. I'm not sure if I just didn't like the playstyle or I didn't give it a chance. I think I'll work on it more the next beta.
  11. Sounds very promising. It's definitely unique, I haven't run into anyone else with the same build. I tried out 2h with Nightblade. The damage output is incredible as with the mobility but I opted to go medium armor for extra damage though less survivability.   Points into Teleport Strike to allow for gap closing through magicka and my main damage output from stamina was Uppercut from the 2h skill line. It would allow me to rain strikes on the enemy at all times. If out of magicka, I'd spam Uppercut, if out of stamina I would unleash hell with my magicka skills.   Our two builds would make a devastating combo in Cyrodiil with duo damage output with offheals.
  12. Will EJ have a guild in ESO?

    I'm not sure if there will be an official EJ guild for ESO but I have a guild I'll be running in ESO.
  13. So we found out what the bonuses are for ESO if you preorder and/or get the collector's edition and I personally am excited for the bonuses and at the same time are troubled by them. I found that being able to be any race in any alliance to be a big bonus. So if you preorder, you can play as a High Elf in the Ebonheart Pact if you wish. I know that many people will find it unfair that if they don't preorder, they won't be able to do it so I see some controversy there.   However, the rewards that I feel will have the biggest affect on gameplay is Imperial being a playable race if you buy the collectors edition and the rings of mara. I am fine with it (though I do feel it's extortionate to say the least) but others may feel that ZOS is taking advantage of people who want to play imperial. The rings of mara let you and a friend perform a ritual that will increase your exp gain if you play together.   What are your thoughts on the bonuses from the Preorder/collector's edition. If you haven't seen them yet, head to ESO website and check them out.
  14. Crafting

    Hmm, I was under the impression that factions couldn't go to the other factions zones at all. Guess Zenimax must have changed their stance on it at some point. If that is true, then that will really expand the crafting choices we can have at max level.
  15. Crafting

    Oh so if the weapon/armor styles are locked to their regions, then that means that if you are in the Ebonheart pact, you are limited to Dunmer, Nord and Argonian armor styles at this time since factions can't go into the other factions regions, at least at launch.
