Kaz’rogal: The Boss that hates healers.

Posted in Guild, Raiding on April 3, 2008 by pallywithash

Once again, a boss fight that I absolutely hate. This big fella likes to cast a debuff that eats your mana and when you get to zero, you go boom boom. Anyway, we killed him last night on our 2nd attempt (the first attempt we took him to 1%). Honestly, I feel a little bit “left behind” since a lot of guilds killed this guy months ago and are already farming Black Temple but it’s been really nice killing new bosses.  Thus far, I’ve enjoyed Hyjal quite a bit. Anyway, heres the screenshot. Sneak peek of the updated UI too. screenshot_040108_234832.jpeg 


Macro: DI Damnit!

Posted in Macros on April 1, 2008 by pallywithash

Seeing as my guild is in progression mode in Hyjal at the moment, I find myself clicking my “Oh Shit” buttons much more often. These include the legendary Lay On Hands, Divine Intervention and my “Not as useful in PVP as it once was” Divine Shield. As many of you Paladins — regardless of your spec — ought to know that Divine Intervention not only saves your raid from an all out wipe but it also saves the person you cast this lovely spell on the cost of durability loss but it also saves YOU the durability damage as well! Surprised?! Believe it or not, some Paladins I’ve encountered had absolutely no clue of this wonderful gift from Blizzard.

So, as simple of a Macro as it is I present to you the official Pallywithash DI Macro.

/target HealerName1
/target HealerName2
/target HealerName3
/target HealerName4
/target HealerName5
/target HealerName6
/cast Divine Intervention
/ra DI CAST ON %t

What this will do is search for every person named in the macro and if they are within range, it will cast DI on a given target and let everyone know how fucking awesome you are via a nice announcement in raid chat. Now, unfortunately this does not work with one click of a button. It’s up to you to spam your newly made “Oh Shit” DI Macro for it to actually find a target available to cast the DI on. You may also need to edit this macro depending on who is in your raid at the time. I generally put the main raiders towards the top of the list of targets, followed by people who rarely attend raids but still make it from time to time.Simple. Very simple.

Spam it when your boss fight goes sour.

WOOT! New IRL Loot!

Picked up a 22″ Hannspree widescreen LCD display today. I was considering saving up for an Apple 23″ Cinema display but felt the $900 could be spent better elsewhere. Snagged this one for $280. My screen resolution went from 1440×900 to 1680×1050 so I really can’t wait to set my UI up on this thing!Hannspree

Poor CPU Performance post 2.4

Posted in Humor on April 1, 2008 by pallywithash

Being a veteran of several major patches, I should be used to this by now however I can’t help but notice how unstable WoW has become on my system (Dual 2.0 G5 Powermac with 2GB RAM). I will admit, my system isn’t the greatest for running WoW, I could definitely do better with a nice new MacPro but gotta work with what I’ve got for now. Anyone else noticing decreased performance post 2.4? Is it just me?
