Dwarf hunters.

A link for Hausen, who likes comics: Flintlocke’s Guide to Azeroth Long, silly, and makes the character in Twilight Highlands make a LOT more sense 🙂 3/23/2014: Since Gamespy has met its demise since this was originally posted, a kind netizen stepped in and backed up the entire series for download here.

Disenchant this.

The boy pointed me to this page after having to listen to my repeated whining over the chore of disenchanting his multiple pages of craftycrap every few days. Because really, there’s nothing more tedious than toiling over a hot mailbox for upwards of half an hour, waving your hands repeatedly like some spastic jazz dancer for all to see. And not even getting to keep the spoils! It’s a good thing I like him. (And that he bought my epic flight training, but that’s another thing entirely…) Anyway, this page here from elitist-jerks has some cool macros near the bottom …

Best guild application ever.

I’ve had this awesome animated guild application bookmarked for a while, since it first popped up on WoWInsider, and it’s still as hilarious now as it was then. I hope this guy never takes it down from his site. It’s got music, animation, and lasts for about six minutes with lots of wacky text, so be prepared.

The Non-Addon Edition.

Well, you all know I use a lot of addons. Occasionally, I have to download things WoW-related besides addons, though. These end up usually being related to addons, however. I’ve been using two non-addon programs lately, and promised I’d put up links for a few people. So here we go! Curse Client, to replace the hole left by WoWMatrix for those of you that have far too many addons to update them all manually on a regular basis. I have mixed feelings about the official Curse Client — I tried it out a long time ago and quickly ditched it …

How To: Make a Marksman Hunter

As with all these “beginning a such and such” articles, I suggest going with the template, then tweaking things to fit your own preferences and personality after giving it a test run to familiarize yourself with the build’s options. Be aware of how each talent affects your overall performance, instead of taking something just because “it sounds good” — a bit of research and/or number crunching can mean a difference of hundreds of DPS! Of the three trees, marksman is definitely getting the least specialization these days. This holds especially true in PvE and raiding, where MM is seen as …

How To: Make a Shiny New Survival Hunter

So back during the Great BM Nerf of 3.0.8, there were only three raiding hunters in the guild and two of us went Survival. After BM was unnerfed in the following patch, we stayed that way because it added some nice variety to the raid pool (we now have 2 BM, 2 MM and 2 SV, if my last count was accurate) so everybody could get a solid set of buffs. Well, that and at least I was too cheap to fork out another 50g for respeccing (and another few hundred on matching gems, enchants, and glyphs) when I knew …

Last UI post of the series, I swear.

So after looking more at the screenies I put up, I realized that in last night’s excitement, I didn’t really show what I meant by “more screen estate”. What I meant was that in the first of the three, there were bars every which way I looked, whether or not I was in combat. There will be stuff that pops up with combat, of course, that’s a good thing. And there will be more stuff popping up in raids, because there’s more information to keep track of. The second screenie illustrated that well enough, with the raid unit frames and …

Another UI Post, Redux.

As promised earlier, I have finished fiddling around with my UI this afternoon and took it for a test run through Naxx 25 tonight. It’s going to take a bit getting used to, because I moved around a lot of things and there are new functionalities, but on the whole I’m very pleased with it. It streamlines a lot of the things that bugged me about my old UI, and makes the whole thing look more aesthetic and unified. After comparing the two screenshots, I’m convinced that I’ve kept the same amount of screen estate if not gained slightly more. …

Another UI Post.

It’s been half a year since my last UI Post and many things have changed since then. A new expansion has come out. Old addons have died, many more have proliferated. My computer was fixed and has an actual working graphics card! I’ve been mentioning some of the addons I use in guild chat, but figured it was probably time for a more comprehensive link list. Below is my hunter’s current UI setup. During my weekly round of updates this morning, I also picked up a new stack of toys I’m going to be testing out on my druid before …

How To: Scrolling Combat Text Warnings for Lock and Load

I’m not gonna bother making a guide, because plenty of people have made very fine ones for us already. If you are using Scrolling Combat Text, please check out Lienna’s guide. If you are using Mik’s Scrolling Battle Text, please check out the Warcraft Hunters Union guide. If you haven’t decided which one you’re going to use yet, I’d suggest trying the second one (Mik’s) because it’s been updated most recently and is just one big addon, as opposed to several smaller ones linked together. At least, that’s the reason I use that one. Lots of people like SCT, though, …
