[QUOTE=EnchantedLily;10384585]I am currently on a "I do not want to go to Kara/SSC/Gruuls/anything" break,

Funny, me too. Kids are having a try at public school and I find my evenings are no longer available to raid. I kind of miss it but it is also freeing to do what I want! No more 40g repair bills. Woot!

Soo, these last few months have been interesting. I stepped away from all that is alliance (including my 70 rogue) and went horde. And I love it. And I am not going back. I've gotten my belf lock to 66 which I am excited for and my priest to 40.. though my lock is my main now. I play on The Scryers. Thanks for starting a new thread!

Oddly enough I actually like Heroic Durn and BM- go figure?
I don't pug, ever. We were helping a friend get his last badge and he chose HFC.

Umm... What's pugging?

Tanking is pulling one out of a mob to attack at a time, right?

Heroics? Coilfang instances?

You all speak a language I do not understand.

Serrindipity- get your hiney over to Runetotem! Now!

Tanking is specifically the person taking all the aggro from a mob. When I'm using CC ( crowd control) my motto is you break it you tank it

pug is short for pick up group, IE doing instances with people you don't know

Coilfang is a dungeon in Zangermarsh in Outland.

Heroic is a dungeon setting that is harder than normal mode with higher level mobs and better loot drops.

I'd stop PuGing, but I live on a low pop RPPVP server... and err.. When I was in a raiding guild I didn't.. But I left said raiding guild for their horrible politics.. They literally let my class leader make everyone miserable on a daily basis, scream throw fits, log off for DAYS over me spending more DKP and winning an Item HE wanted (oh em gee?)... Yeah... it was great to go back to my home guild- Quarantined, was there from level 5 to 65 before I made the raiding guild jump.

When I started playing (what 3.5 years ago?) I only played Horde- then I went to play Alliance with my siblings, and played till level 50 or so (this was after a year on horde) then five months of being Alliance I switched back to Horde... What can I say, I like it better there.

Yeah, I am a clothie, never got quite that bad- max I remember having was 28 G repair... Most of all I really like having *free time* where I can.. knit and paint, and draw/sketch, and read books. Though- I do miss it time to time... Probably will be going back... once I get my own computer... I spilled water on my laptop- my hand just let go of the glass..

Nice new thread! I have been spending all my time on mug thol and making new alts there. We have 2 accounts now so me and hubby play together! I'll try to jump on runetotem once in awhile. If anyone is on Mugthol, my main is karmamomma, a 23 tauren shammy.
Oh and a random rogue question, I made a blood elf rogue. When I click on my backstab it says requires daggers in red. I have a dagger equipped in my off hand and the dagger is white, so what is the problem? One more comment duel wield rooooocks!
post #31 of 1669
You have to have a dagger in your main hand to use backstab, ambush ect.

Yep. Anything that says "requires daggers" means main hand.

I really want to get into raiding one day. Never have gotten there, because my main is a rogue on a fairly old server, so noone needed ANOTHER rogue. (uh, if anyone needs on in their guild, I'm at 65 and will transfer servers and work my butt off to level! )

My main is a druid tank.

A 'tank' is essentially a meat shield. They generally have high armor class, high hit points, and a fair amount of dodge/block/parry (unless you're a druid like me, and you just get dodge because we can't carry shields).

Basic game mechanics:

DPS classes (DPS = damage per second) - these classes do large amounts of damage, but tend to have low hit points, low armor, and limited survival skills for surviving hard hitting opponents. Rogues, mages, warlocks, enhancement shaman, cat druids, shadow priests, and hunters are the most prominent dps classes. However there are a few arms/fury warriors who dps as well as retribution paladins - though generally not as effectively as the prominent dps classes.

Tanking classes - these classes have high armor and hit points, but generally don't do a lot of damage. Their attacks while generally weak, generate a high amount of threat and keep mobs focused on them. Warriors, feral druids, and paladins are best suited for tanking.

Healing classes - Priests, shaman, resto druids, and paladins.

Basically the way it works is, tanks absorb damage and keep monsters busy while the rest of the group (besides the healer(s)) 'burn him down' - damage him immensely so he will die quickly. In most group situations, the healer's primary job is to keep the tank healed.

CC = crowd control. A crowd control ability is essentially a way to keep a mob occupied until it can be tanked/dps'd. Some examples include mage's sheep ability which is a polymorph that turns the mob into a sheep for a period of time, and a rogue's sap ability which stuns a humanoid target for a period of time. The best kinds of CC are renewable - meaning that they have a short cooldown (preferrably shorter than their durration with no diminishing returns) and can be cast in battle.

In Kara (which is an expansive, lvl 70, 10 person dungeon) and in most heroics, I play the role of 'off-tank', which can also be considered a renewable CC. I keep mobs busy until they can be dps'd. (I'm also an off-healer and a dps addition, but that's a whole separate post!)

Another term you're likely to hear in an instance group is 'kite' - which means to keep a mob following you, outside of melee range but within ranged attack while inflicting enough damage to keep him fixated on you. Hunters generally kite well (if they know what they're doing).

Making more sense? Have you done an instance with a group yet? It will likely make more sense once you have...

Oh, so you ladies have a guild on Runetotem? Fantastic, I might have to join (because what I *really* need is another alt!) Looks like it's Alliance side? I want to try a druid...I just need to get over my dislike of nelfs...

My alliance guild on Bronzebeard is an all female guild called Daughters of the Alliance. Pretty big and they're doing Kara right now if anyone ever wants to join up there, their info is at http://community.livejournal.com/wow_dota/profile
post #37 of 1669
Ugh. If it wasn't PvE I would consider sending my priest over to play on Bronzebeard, but I don't think I could ever transfer back to PvP after being on a PvE server.

Yeah, by all means, come join us in MsAdventure Co.!! We're having a lot of fun.

I'll check out your other guild with my rogue. Is it ok to say you referred me? I love my little social guild on Khadgar and I'm definitely leaving my alts there, but our 70s moved on, so I'm kinda lonely being the highest level active member!

I really go through phases with playing...sometimes I wanna be on every free moment, sometimes I just check in for a few minutes. I didn't feel like playing when I was pregnant, but now I'm back to obsession!
post #39 of 1669

Momerath-70 BE mage-malfurion
Xoezane- 63 UD priest - malfurion
