    1573

    Generally I would think the best way to approach a boss would be to spread your mages out, pop all cooldowns and then open with your biggest, slowest casting spell. Then spam fireball or...

    I've done the same thing with warlocks but mages don't have pets.

    If he plans to play the paladin as a tank he'll need a healer.

    Frost is better DPS than fire until you get BWL+ level gear. Also much more survivable with ice block, ice barrier, cold snap, etc. Fire also goes OOM pretty fast without enough crit.

    I recall...

    Sure but the decision to disable follow in world PvP combat was related to the introduction of War Mode, right? Perhaps Blizzard will reason that since there is no War Mode there is no need to...

    That's what I originally assumed but people were saying it was an independent change and had nothing to do with "warmode." I haven't played in several expansions so I have no idea.

    Not much chance of that. As soon as people see boxing in BG's there'll be a billion tickets and forum posts with people whining.

    Still, I haven't had much hope that Blizzard would keep it genuine...

    That's pretty cool. Hopefully it stays this way. I guess we'll see!

    Boosting works the same in vanilla as it did through TBC/Wrath. Your XP per kill does get reduced a lot with a level 60 in the group but it's still a lot more XP per hour than you can gain by...

    Not really. I just go wherever drops the best loot and is an appropriate level for my characters.

    I only bother collecting quests for a dungeon if it rewards an item I want or if the quest is easy...

    This is not true at all.

    XP/Hour grinding is faster than questing as a boxer since many quests can take hours to complete on 5 characters.

    Gathering the important quests (the ones that reward...

    MobXP / PartyMembers * 1.4 PartyModifier.



    Elite mobs give double XP.

    So, a mob that gives 100XP solo will give 28XP with a full party of equal level (56XP if elite.)

    100 / 5 * 1.4 * 2 =...

    Vanilla is a lot more time consuming than most other versions of WoW so you might as well pick classes you enjoy. Especially if you plan to raid. There's no point choosing a class based on leveling...

    Warrior healer is great but out of all the healers, priest is probably the least optimal to pair with. Shield prevents rage generation and priests don't have any buffs that increase physical damage....

    Any chance you could test whether the [@player] condition works with GTAE skills like blizzard, rain of fire, etc?

    Shamans can remove fear, charm, sleep, poison and disease which are some of the more serious debuffs. Magic debuffs don't have a huge impact, they tend to just be damage over time effects. I can...

    For PvE and doing dungeons it will be great. You'll cleave through mobs super fast with warriors and windfury totem. Less optimal for PvP (IMO) because shamans have no way to dispel slows/roots so...

    Have you tested this using characters with wands equipped? Remember some time during Cataclysm (I think) IWT with wands started only moving your characters into wand range.

    Hotkeys I use are I use 1 through 6, QERFC and then 3 through 12 on my Naga. The 1 key on my Naga is set to shift so I can press it in conjunction with all of my other keys to get Shift+1, Shift+Q,...

    Assumed you were talking about classic. I can't see how 20% CPU usage with 40 retail clients would be possible unless you're playing WoW from NASA HQ.

    I disagree. A tank focuses most of the outgoing damage in PvE onto a single target so you'd spend more time DPSing and less time healing.

    I also don't see a lot of difference between 4 or 5 DPS in...

    Seems super sketchy to me. The more damage you're taking, the more you have to stop and hard cast a heal, which means the less damage you're doing and the longer it will take you to kill things.

    A single voidwalker has trouble holding AE threat. 4 Voidwalkers can each focus on one mob and most packs are 3-4 elites. On single targets, they actually do a reasonable amount of threat if you give...
