Q&A Delayed

The Q&A of the week is being pushed back by a week due to lack of Qs. Seriously, only 59 different search terms over the last week. Hello, summer slump. How are you?

In lieu of my typical Q&A, here are a couple of nifty posts I’ve read in the last week or so.

1) Dealing with the Deplorable Drape by Codi at Moar HPS! Great post about all the different options you have before you go wasting 50 Emblems of Frost on the Drape of the Violet Tower.

2) Easy to Acquire Haste Gear by Ophelie at Bossy Pally. Great post, well-researched, about where to find yourself some haste. (I disagree about the Ony cloak vs. the Drape of the Violet tower, but, as Codi says in her post, it’s okay if it’s used responsibly.)

3) A Light Show by Cassandri at HoTs & DoTs. I’ve been that hunter. I’ve been that shaman. This made me laugh. I’d already read it before, but ecclesiasticaldiscipline linked to it today and I laughed my ass off again.

Short post, I know. Kind of rare. Enjoy it. ;)

  1. Wow, that is short. Good to see that I missed your previous post. Will read that directly after this.

    I am as per today the proud owner of Earthsoul Boots! Yay! Managed to get them for the price of 1 Primordial Saronite. Am I lucky or what? I’ll gladly postpone my T10 shoulders another week for that!

    Sorry for using your comment system for this, but I just had to say it. And it’s not like your post has any discussion material, right? ;-)

  2. Thanks for the link (and thanks Ecclesiastical Discipline too). So strange that my post on a topic I know near nothing about – Restoration Shaman-ing – seems to be so well liked.

    Maybe it’s the pictures. Maybe it’s *because* I don’t know much about it.

  3. Thanks for the link!

    You’re probably right about the cloak thing. My post really wasn’t as well researched as it could have been. It was “hurry and post all those links before I lose my sanity!” so I was going partially by memory, partially by immediate reaction. I’ll take a look at it again tomorrow and make a few corrections before it goes into the archives.

  4. I like the light show post :D

    However, a quick reason why I still am using VuhDo and am reluctant to switch to Grid.

    VuhDo has a built in range finder for chain heal/pom/wg. Basically you set it up for the character (is it a chain spell? an AoE? What’s the range?) and it will highlight who the spell could hit when you mouse over the frames :D

    Also, VuhDo just added a QH like arrow pointing to where some one his when you mouse over some one out of range!

  5. Kaboomski – that’s an amazing price for them, grats. :)

    Cassandri – definitely the images. I have BEEN that hunter. When my brother was gearing his hunter up in heroics, I kept yelling at him to stand in front of me and he’s like “I’m a hunter! I’m supposed to be at range!” and then I showed him your post and he’s like “ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.” hahaha.

    Ophelie – You’re welcome for the link. :) The Ony cloak is definitely a drop in intellect for sure, and maybe I overvalue haste a bit (finally hit over 1000 haste, unbuffed, the other day) but the Drape makes me want to cry in almost all circumstances. haha.

    thansal – That’s a really interesting thing for Vuhdo to incorporate. Maybe I’ll try it out on my shaman or my priest…

  6. @Cassandri There’s something about that post. It’s visual…it’s practical…it’s The Dream. It perfectly illustrates the love and sweat and blood shed to become a good healer. The humor and striving combined with silliness is inspiring. Okay, maybe it’s just pretty. I have no idea. But I don’t know I’ve ever had my wondering mind redirected back to a single quintessential post quite so often. And every time I play my Shaman I think of it. And other people link to it like mad too, so I’m not out on a limb here. I can only imagine it’s hard to keep up with this “I know nothing” farce when you perfectly sum up the perfection of it. :)

    @Kurn I loves you too. Oh look…cute for you…http://xkcd.com/650/

  7. ecclesiastical discipline – Gotta come up with a nickname for you… Whew. Anyways, glad to know I’m not the only one who always thinks of Cassandri’s post when I settle in and cast chain heal on… one person. haha.

    Yaaaaaaay for more xkcd. :)

    I’ll see your link and raise you:


  8. Well, you can call me “Val”…like Vahl with a long “a” like opening up your mouth for a doctor. Or “ecclesiastipline” as I am on twitter. Or you know I’m used to being an random priest.

    And I totally concede the xkcd war…for now. That was awesome and I’d never seen it. /until I can browse a hundred comics looking for the perfect one to show you up, you bitch.

    Errr..and I love you.
