Strangely enough, Lore DOESN'T play Magmus like ever.

Good assessment on the training dummy thing though. It bothers the crap out of me whenever we try to fix our dps'er's rotations and recommend them to go to the target dummy to practice/improve, how many of them never do it. We've kicked many an old member from raider status because they think they can just rofl their way through.

Success again! I'll assume you found the issue and stop posting these mplayer dumps now. Thanks!

Ah Lore, how you crack me up. Keep up the good work.

Every day, I do my daily...stuff. Random Dungeon, maybe a random BG, transmute a gem...

and 3 5 minute combat dummy runs. I know exactly how much I average without buffs (because I've done it so much), so I know when I am doing exceptionally good (or bad). Also, there's a thread on Shadowpriest.com where they are comparing gearscore and 5 min combat dummy runs. Its pretty cool to have lots of people to compare to and say "wait my GS is just like theirs, but my DPS is 200 below, wth!".

Nothing like motivation.

I'm still working on the spam thing. It seems to mostly be about maximizing GCD use. I would say "think ahead" is also an important DPS skill. Know what you're going to do 2-3 GCDs before you do it.

Something I have noticed: dont hammer the living daylights out of your buttons! sometimes your client f...s up and thinks you have just pressed a button so you get "half" a GCD before it realises that nothing reached the server. Get a GCD timer to catch the GCD just when it ends. on some classes this can mean a serious damage boost. Also, some speccs require you to pool resources...feral kitty has a finishing move that does more damage if you have more energy, sometimes it is better to pool energy before hitting mutilate (optimising envenom buff uptime and causing you to do more envenoms per unit of time, even if you wait 0.1 sec extra before hitting mutilate).

good dps = intelligent playing. you cannot brute force DPS.

Indeed, it was Ciderhelm's fault.

I haven't told many people that story (at least I don't think I have), WHERE DO I KNOW YOU FROM

Good thing I'm dyslexic and can read everything backwards.

While the tips were great for DPS, I can't heal a target dummy. Though I'll be sure to recommend it in guild when someone is wondering why they suck so bad on the deeps meters.

If every DPS in the game saw this, the next day there would be 500 LK kills.

You posted it on the forums, or maybe in the liveblog, but you definitely posted it.

Dang, I didn't know just how effective that faceroll method could be! Life-changing!

:D funny DPS rotations

Though, the thing about muscle memory is true.

When I first took dual spec and re-arranged some skills on my second spec's actionbar .. confusion all over :p

Awesome guide Lore. You posted it like 1 day after I made a retpally 101 guide on my guild forums (and asked for it to be a locked thread). Now I gotta try and edit the "locked" post with a link to this retpallytastic marmot. as for twitter......Really? I bet you have a huge farm on farmville too right?

Yup. I don't remember the specifics, but you definitely posted it. Sadly, I don't know you personally, though I'm sure it would be fantastic. We can pretend to be friends though, right?

hahaha this was a good episode/installment/wowvideothingy??
i love the ret pally rotation, especially since i just started a pally recently and am leveling in ret. Kinda off topic but im actually tanking random dungeons in ret, yes in ret, and its working quite well, ive recieved many compliments on my tanking

You're lucky that your Halls of Stone actually starts, whenever I got it, the tank almost always quit the second the loading screen ended.

Also, I agree very much that some people REALLY need to figure out how to play their class, I saw a mage gemming for stam, int, and Spellpen.

Chamenas

I've had a few people quit out of Halls of Stone, but not enough to be noticeable. By far the more common comment I get is: Why aren't we doing the other bosses? And even that rarely happens.

While we're off on a tangent, why the hell do people go Right instead of Left in H. OK when you reach the first split. Left is 2 trash packs, no boss. If someone isn't careful you might get 3 trash packs. Right is a guaranteed 3 trash packs and the boss.
