    Needs more Claws - How to Cat

    Nice basic info guide. Watching the video though I gotta ask. How do you function without DruidBar?

    [ADDON] LunaUnitFrames

    You know I was giving my opinion on what I think would be helpful to your addon. Generally something like that is called a feature request. Now you could do one of two things, be a dick about it like the above or you could say thanks for the input, I'll think about it and then do whatever the hell you want to anyway. It's your addon. I can understand your saltiness about the fact that I still don't think your precious raid frames aren't perfect yet after a year or so since I last tried it (they are better by the way, against all belief since you have no clue how to actually display relevant raid information it seems). You just are excellent proof that developers should never be in charge of marketing or sales.

    [ADDON] LunaUnitFrames

    So what I have set up is I have aggro set to name so the name changes to red so I don't have the agro box turned on. For the low mana warning it could go where that box goes. As for the other hots, for me I'd prefer if hots had the ability like debuffs where it only shows hot type that I can cast. I actually turned off hot tracking because I don't need to see who has renew on and it was bugging me. So if it is set to track own hots then we'd have regrowth, rejuv, innervate, and abolish poison which would never be on the same person at the same time and even if so then just have a max of 3 shown at any one time.

    When to go Resto?

    It's an amazing spec. Only downside of it is it's soft on dps. Capable tank, capable healer though.

    [ADDON] LunaUnitFrames

    The raid frames has come a long way and I like all the functionality. One thing that would be useful from a druid's perspective is I don't like to see mana status all the time. I care about low mana only. Could you add a mana warning indicator similar to your aggro one? You could set the mana % cutoff and have a blue square for anyone that is below that amount. That would be really useful. Also it would be great if abolish poison and innervation can be tracked like a hot. Thanks!

    [Addon] NotGrid

    So I got it set up how I like and so far, it's great. Two things I'd love to see implemented. One of the things about grid that I think is fantastic and why I have been slow to look at luna is the coloration. The fact that the bars are only barely colored but mostly black, and the coloration is in the name only. So when someone takes damage the defecit lights up a bunch so it makes whack a mole a lot easier. Less strain to see where the problems are. The second thing is it would be fantastic if we could adjust the party frames to different layouts. I'd specifically like 1-4 on top and then 5-8 on bottom and not all of them across. There are other layouts too but that specifically would be great. So one thing I had a big problem with grid and I'm not sure if it's an inherent issue or something that can be fixed but one of the big things is I like to use the frames for tracking buffs on the raid. And often grid just didn't update at all and it would constantly stop showing the buffs and wouldn't update even if I recast on the person. I haven't used this much but I am seeing even with a dropping of the party and reinviting that it takes some magic clicking for the buffs to reappear on my party mate. I haven't used it in a raid yet so I'll see how chronic this problem is.

    Alexsensual's new video about Elysium.

    How hard is it for people to get the word Anathema right? https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/anathema
  8. Exactly. There are two types of server providers, those that are truly interested in enhancing the quality of the community with a better scripted server, and those that are looking at trying to make a buck with their average run of the mill server. The former should work on getting in this network. The latter will obviously be barred. And the community will be better off because of it.

    A Terrible Resto Druid in Need of Help

    Spirit is incredibly useful when doing leveling dungeons and working around the 5 second rule.

    Glad to hear it's going much better for you! I was hoping you'd post an update.

    [Addon] NotGrid

    So excited to see this have development support. Gonna try this out asap!
  12. We obviously have very different viewpoints when it comes to what is good or bad for the vanilla wow community. For me any server that makes a profit is a bad thing. Any server that does fast xp, instant 60, pay to win, or anything else is a bad thing. Any special server with custom changes, cheaper respec costs, etc etc etc is a bad thing. You provide the world with a perfectly scripted vanilla core and this crap will be everywhere. Anyone can find any flavor of what they want for vanilla. I think you see that as a result of capitalism and would be happy for it. For me I couldn't be more in horror. Look the real answer is if blizz were to give us the vanilla servers we all want that would solve all of this. The vanilla modding is fine but I'd prefer if it was legit. For now servers with the correct vision can at least be popular enough to guide the community that way by providing legitimate content that isn't modded. Open source removes all of those safeguards. The private server scene is the way it is because of a specific set of circumstances. This project in a year or so would fundamentally change the circumstances. No one, and I mean no one has a working AQ, much less Naxx. Everyone has generally working quests and MC and BWL but the higher content isn't right stock and in a weird way I'm glad it's like that because you wouldn't see this coalescing of players onto a single project that was nost to start this journey and then becasue of the popularity get more and more players into it until it was so popular blizz had to actually pay attention and they did. And then because of that even more people found out. And then it restarted and was even more popular. If nost had just released their source code when they shut down the people would have scattered. Many of the servers would have been making money off of them and who knows what the quality would be, good or bad. But because they were careful and not open source we are where we are with a brighter future. At least I think so.
  13. @dragreb The point I am making that you missed because you are still talking hypotheticals is this: If there is only one group of servers out there with true quality and most others are wallowing in stock Mangos then players will gravitate toward the quality and away from the cash shops. Currently we have 2 quality server teams that are (Elysium) or generally are (Crestfall) set with the ideals of providing a service that is non profit and free of pay to win services. We are lucky that the quality and the ideals are together. I'd be having a very different state of mind if the highest quality server was also one that made money. To me giving away free leg ups to people that would actively try to make money off of other people is just stupid and you have to admit that a business making money off of open source content is a pretty hypocritical stance to hold in the first place.
  14. How to take twice as long as a corpse run to get to SM.
  15. Making it open source is a nice platitude but a bad idea. A network of quality servers - like they are doing here is a far better idea. Were you there to see how many servers were doing a total cash grab for the playerbase after nostalrius left? We don't want quality code to go out to everyone. It'll dilute the playerbase to a bunch of moneymaking enterprises profiting off of volunteer help and blizz IP. They shouldn't be able to get rich off of this project and players should be able to be gravitated toward servers with integrity. That's what is best for the scene. Not open source.
  16. It was option b. When you bought gold. Or was it for exploiting. Regardless it wasn't because of ninja looting. lol
  17. Ruling: Not guilty. Fury wants tank gear? Clarify MS over OS before joining.

    Twinking poll/general

    @yamish You have truly picked the most hilarious hill to die on that I have ever seen. You are literally arguing about the definition of the word twink and no amount of evidence or even your own admittance of certain facts that fit your criteria will sway you from the fact that twinking in wow is a thing and it's perfectly valid.

    No boss loot in Dungeons

    Which bosses specifically didn't drop loot for you? Sometimes there are named mobs that seem like bosses but they don't drop jack. I've never seen inappropriately dropped items so for now I have a hard time believing you.

    Manacost Shapeshift unreal?

    Powershifting isn't a thing except when trying to max your deeps in a raid. The beauty of druid grinding is you stay in form, down a couple of mobs, pop out and heal yourself and then go back into form to let your mana regen. And yeah shifting is really expensive without a big mana pool.

    Twinking poll/general

    Ok so high level enchants and engineering is twinking now. I thought you said you can't twink in wow? Ok now we can that's good. Glad we got that cleared up. Can we say that high level first aid is twinking too? Because I don't think that level 19s normally go around bandaging with heavy runecloth but ok. So we can twink in wow and we can get past this statement. Whew. Case closed.

    Twinking poll/general

    Overgear would be the situation where you have gear that is the best available for your level. Getting that gear would be extremely lucky to be gotten by natural means and/or too expensive for a regular player to purchase outright, necessitating a high level helping specifically for that purpose and boosting said character, allowing to get the items. Oh and by the way you may not have realized but enchants are exactly what you're talking about. Many are effectively level 60 enchants (any libram, mc enchant, etc) but they can be put on low level items. So with that defined for you now you define the type of character that is. I'm waiting.

    Twinking poll/general

    So I gotta ask, @yamish if you're such an expert in these matters, what exactly are we supposed to call wow characters that specifically overgear so that they can do bgs at 19, 29, 39, etc brackets? If you say anything along the lines of "well geared player" or "normal character" I'm going to internet choke you, so fair warning.

    deadmines is abbreviated as dm

    If you ignore the historical context of VC and how it came to be such you are missing the point of why it is what it is. The fact that it also got reinforced by the fact that a new dungeon with similar acronyms is something that cemented it for being like that. Languages don't have rules that bind something some way. It's not purely logic. We get that VC is the only one like that. And yes you usually don't spam for a specific boss... Except you have princess runs and emp runs and rend runs.

    deadmines is abbreviated as dm

    Look, Deadmines is the very first dungeon that a new alliance player is exposed to. If you are really new to wow the concept of a dungeon at all is also going to be foreign. All you know is what you find along the way. Well if you're questing in westfall then eventually you get to the end of the chain http://db.vanillagaming.org/?quest=166 and you see that there's this amazing loot. You say to yourself, man I want that loot BAD so what do you do? You spam general saying LFG to kill VanCleef. In the meantime you may hear from some people that he's in a dungeon called the Deadmines, which by the way is a 5 minute walk through a massive mine in and of itself. I rememeber distinctly that I didn't know the concept of a dungeon or what it meant or what kind of group you need to set up. All I saw was that I wanted the gear and I had to kill VanCleef. LFG for DM is a term that you only know when you actually know what's up. In vanilla no one knew what was up so it started with VC and was only reinforced by Dire Maul when it came out. There may have been a time when it was DM because people wised up and I can see for sure that it would change to DM in later expansions because of the irrelevance of Dire Maul, but the answer is that VC is a special case for specific reasons and it is legitimate.
