WeakAuras For Resto Shaman

Power Auras used to be one of my most favorite addons for the World of Warcraft. Unfortunately, development has seemingly dropped off for this golden oldie. A good alternative that is easier to use and just as flexible is WeakAuras. Below is a video of some WA in action on my resto shaman. Below the cut are import codes for those auras.

WeakAuras can be found here at curse.

[DK] The Official 5.0 Talent Preview for DW-DPS

So here we are, on the precipice of another exciting WoW patch. The guys and I here at FI have been thoroughly slacking in our blogging duties but have been hitting the play time rather hard. We've been working on Heroic Dragon Soul with our guild so that plus real life pretty much consumes the free time I have. Luckily in order to prepare myself for the new patch (slotted for August 28th) I usually like to review my talents and I might as well blog about it. Every once in a while I'll miss something a reader will catch and I'm glad that I did.

A good place to start is here, which was my Blizzcon review of the talent system. Since then much of the talent tree has been changed some of the information is good - other parts are outdated. Keep in mind that many of the talents are granted to us at level 55 because well DUH that is where we start. The first three points will be available to us from the beginning. Here we go:

Welcome to FI's MOP Beta Coverage

Hey everyone, it's been a hot minute since we last posted any information on the blog. It's been a crazy mix of RL syndrome, new exciting games being released, and lets face it boredom with the current content. Hopefully MOP can change all that, if even for a minute.

That said we're back to provide some information and insight into the current paradigm of Pandaria. With so much to cover (which we can't possibly cover it all) we welcome your suggestions as to what YOU want to see. Here are some broad categories available;

  • Monk info
  • Talent system
  • Raids / instances
  • Questing and zones
  • Professions
  • Balance issues
  • Specific class info

Like I said, these are just a few things we could post on but if anyone has suggestions please post.

LFR tips for frost death knights

So you like being a red murder machine? Me too. There is something about topping the charts that just makes me feel complete. Don't get me wrong, being a meter whore can be annoying to others at times. I feel that if I top the charts I've done my job - and done it well. Nothing is more upsetting to me than a DPS who argues that it's not about the numbers - of course it is! Your primary job as a DPS is to deal damage. Now standing in shit, carrying out other tasks, and having fun are also goals but at a binary level we deal damage. Today I wanted to pass on a few tips to help you do more of that.

Specifically I wanted to share some tips for death knights that may be dipping their toes into either raiding or the tier via the LFR tool. Being a DK means we have a large variety of abilities that we can use to stay alive and maximize our output. I feel that toolbox is not only the allure of playing a DPS death knight, but also the pinnacle of a great player.

Hit the jump for the goods.
