    I think goal setting is important in all pursuits (except perhaps television watching, although I do track that via EpisodeCalendar.com so even my tv watching does not go unmeasured), and World of Warcraft is certainly no exception.

    The game has a lot of built in measures of progression: X/X bosses killed, achievement points, levels, but it is easy for me to waste a lot of time in game not working towards anything and then feel unsatisfied with my gaming hours. When I decided to come back and box 5 boxes for a month, I set myself a few goals. To review, these were:

    raise 5 more toons to max level, including classes I don't already have maxed
    add 8 more 600 level professions to my accounts, with a bias towards account 1
    spend 4 hours a week on proving grounds

    Ten days into my plan I'm adjusting things a little bit. I've (almost) reached 85 on the five toons I was bringing from 80, but I am going to swap 3 characters out at 85 rather than ...

    As I've stated before, my goal with healers in 5 mans is a rotation that: a) never runs out of mana and b) handles most of the healing passively**. I'm currently levelling a team in wow with a druid healer. Although I've opted for an isboxer "do not advance until" rotation, with the addition of nourishes for spacing, an effect almost as good could be achieved with this simpler version:

    Laziest macro (no guarantees):
    Code:
    /castsequence [@focus] reset=10 rejuvenation, force of nature, swiftmend, lifebloom, wildgrowth, nourish, rejuvenation, force of nature, wild growth, swiftmend, lifebloom, rejuvenation, force of nature, wild growth, nourish
    Isboxer version:

    Step 1: Do not advance to the next step for at least 1.6 seconds

    (red font not significant, I just find it easier to see in the code boxes with the dark layout)
    Code:
    /cast [@focus] Rejuvenation
    Step 2: Do not advance to the next step for at least 1.6 seconds. ...
