    Killing Them One Arrow at a Time – Hunter PvP Tips

    PVP oriented characters will have engineering in most cases, you cannot rely on this. Have you heard of the shadow priest blackout talent? Warlock's succubus can cast seduction on you OR FEAR, they kill your pet, then no BW for you. If by most of the time you mean some of the time. A good warrior will not stay in one stance, and will keep you snared and hopefully kill you BEFORE you have a chance to get away. I do agree that you should have an easier time with warriors than some other classes. Blessing of Freedom. Immunity Shield. What if the paly has engineering, or repentance, or Pursuit of Justice... If you pop cheetah and the paladin happens to have 31pt holy for Holy Shock? Intimidate is nothing to snuff at... Though you forgot Scatter Shot and Imp. Wingclip for the Marksman/Survival players. Yes, this helps as an additional interrupt. It cancels the pet's auto attack, but if the opposing player targets you again (via clicking or target last target) they can command their pet to attack you again. This is a good strategy for bots, yes. A good mage will cc you and kill your pet, especially if you're BM. Pet attack macros are also useful and a pet follow/passive attached to your mount button. Protip: Also, unbind your S key as a hunter, that will prevent you from being a bad. :P

    Noob Questions

    I use gmail. There may be issues with the page since Elysium has been getting ddos'd the past couple of days. The authentication server has been acting wonky also, so it may just be related to that.

    Noob Questions

    Maybe just don't stream under the same account. Or share screen shots on live. Those things might get you banned.

    Taming new pets yield no new abilities.

    The trainer just teaches you the ability, you have to train it to your pet if you want them, they cost you training points though.

    Best places for iron/mithril nodes

    I always thought that Arathi Highlands was a good place for Iron, and there are even mithril spawns in the cave to the east of the horde town IIRC. For mithril, I typically would do a loop around badlands and into searing gorge (though you do end up with some dark iron, too), then repeat.

    IMPORTANT! We must unite!

    inb4 every hunter in the world makes a /target beerwizzard /cast Viper Sting macro.

    The Hunter Helper addon is nice for finding certain ranks of abilities in-game. Just type /hh find <spell> #.

    paladins in pvp / holy dps

    I'm currently working toward recreating my paly from vanilla on live, but healing dungeons should be plenty doable. You just don't get the Healing Light bonus, nor the utility of protection, which you don't necessarily need in 5-man dungeon content. This build is mostly for bursty and "somewhat controllable" damage and strong healing during small PVP skirmishes. If you want Imp BoW, I would suggest dropping Unyielding Faith for it. For PVP, the small boost that it gives is not worth taking Imp BoW, IMO.

    paladins in pvp / holy dps

    I used to run this spec as a shockadin back in vanilla with PVP gear and TUF. I preferred it because it was more consistent than retribution burst dps, but still had a fair amount of burst. I would run BoW with either Retribution or Concentration Aura. And go ham, it also makes for a better support healer in group fights than retribution.

    PvP Huntard?

    Pursuit of Justice, BLESSING OF FREEDOM, Eye for an Eye, Bubble, BoP. Cleanse x infinity. Paladins have lots of options too, you've probably only faced bad ones. Honestly, I think that 31 pt ret builds aren't that great versus the Holy Shock/Eye for an Eye build, and most go for the LOLRET. At least with holy you can take down kiters much more easily. Hunters do have so many options though in terms of control, but PVP still comes down to the skill of both players in a fight.
  11. This is pretty awesome, thanks! Yeah, pre-Cataclysm barrens covers lvl 10-30+ for horde players, so a lot of people spend a lot of time there leveling up. Not to mention everything is 500 miles away between quests, it just feels like you're stuck there for an eternity.
  12. If we're talking about taking on multiples, I would have to disagree with this, and say that warlock is better. This because of the versatility of the class and the fact that you don't have to deal with the dead zone. You might have more downtime on a lock, but i definitely think they're better at handling multiples early on. That being said, once you get into the swing of things and find your "rhythm" you'll be able to go far longer without dying if you're careful. And always remember, you can group if you can't handle a particular area or quest, some things are easier with help.

    Taming Mazzranache

    An update to this issue, I seem to have no problems once autoshot is turned off during the channel.
  14. Okay, so I'm trying to decide on which healing class to roll, because I mainly play dps and I want to have the option of healing. I mean interactive here in terms of rotation, so which class do you think has the most fun rotation in terms of healing? At the moment I'm sort of leaning toward priest or shaman, but I could do any as I've played them all at least post-vanilla.

    Taming Mazzranache

    I pulled by using concussive shot. Going to try the /script PetAbandon() command when I get home.

    https://elysium-project.org/bugtracker/issue/2925 Just posted this in the bug tracker, feel free to add evidence so maybe we can get this fixed without a workaround.

    Taming Mazzranache

    I had this problem last night as soon as my hunter turned 10, I ran outside of Darnassus to tame an Elder Nightsaber lvl 9 and it just kept fading and I died a couple of times because of it. Maybe it has something to do with level 9 mobs OR the fact that if you don't relog since you learned the tame pet skill it won't work?

    Lvl 10 Pet Quest

    Can you complete a different race's level 10 pet quest? I think I recall being able to do another race's class quests, but I'm not sure if that was in TBC or later.

    [AddOn] ShaguPlates

    I was mistaken, I do have it set... the problem is that it doesn't show *some* spells... like for instance when I did WC last night it did not show cast bars for the Druids of the Fang when they cast Healing Touch, but it showed Druid Slumber and Lightning Bolt just fine. Also I noticed this on the same character when I was fighting Scarlet Friars, it wasn't showing their heal spell. Thanks @shagu for making these addons, they both look sleek and I love that it takes such little setup. I can even run them on my crappy laptop because they seem to use such low memory for what they do.

    [AddOn] ShaguPlates

    Does pfUI have the same customization for nameplates that ShaguPlates does? Or do I use both at once? I'm not sure which version of pfUI I'm running, I got it from github recently. I noticed that the plates do not show a cast bar and I don't see an option to turn them on in pfUI.

    Low-Level Theorycraft. Help!

    This is how Attack Power affects your dps: http://vanilla-wow.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_power As for the offhand question... as long as the dagger (or non-sword) is at least 2.5%-3.75% better (because offhand weapon is 50% or 75% normal damage). It really comes down to poison dps based on the speed of the weapon, since instant poison is 20% chance proc. Assuming you're using the lvl 36 poisons: Poison DPS = 55 / Weapon Speed * 20% Weapon speed Poison DPS 2.8 3.928571429 2.6 4.230769231 2.5 4.4 2.4 4.583333333 2.3 4.782608696 2.2 5 2.1 5.238095238 2 5.5 1.9 5.789473684 1.8 6.111111111 1.7 6.470588235 1.6 6.875 1.5 7.333333333 1.4 7.857142857 1.3 8.461538462 Please correct me if I'm all wrong, I'm not a math major.

    Rogue levelling, what am I doing wrong?

    I would get 2-3 points in Precision (combat) ASAP. Also prioritize Slice and Dice instead of Eviscerate at the beginning of fights, and try to keep it up most of the time. Use a sword or mace in mainhand and whatever in your offhand with best dps, or after 20, whatever is fastest speed in offhand (and decent dps). Keep your weapons up to date (within 2-3 levels for greens or within 5-8 levels for blues). Don't forget your cooldowns, don't save them for a rainy day (pop that evasion, sprint to run away from losing fights). And don't forget you can gouge/bandage. Having certain consumables certainly doesn't hurt either. You can get sharpening stones or weightstones until you get poisons to help with your overall dmg output. You can buy or make agility elixirs and healing potions.

    Zeth'Kur wants you!

    PVP was an afterthought just before the release of WoW. It was thrown in to get the people from DAOC to come to WoW. Otherwise, WoW would've just been another Everquest. That being said, I do love PVP servers, you might get ganked some, but it does add some fun to the leveling process, especially when you get to mid 40s and 50s and you can start to take on those higher level players. And not everyone is out for blood, some people on the other faction will just continue questing and ignore you.
  25. A friend has noticed that while other rogues are grinding, they are using rupture (around level 20ish). I was under the assumption that Eviscerate was the prime finisher for leveling (aside from popping SnD at the start). I noticed that the damage of Rupture is better overall when you haven't yet gotten a new Eviscerate. Should I switch to Rupture when I get a new rank? Or just keep Eviscerating? I know that Rupture is good in long fights, but while leveling most fights wouldn't necessarily last the full duration. Does Rupture suffer from glancing blows? Perhaps it is better vs higher lvl targets if not.
