Jesus, is everyone that adamant about Heroism? After a first kill I'm usually like "meh, whatever" about hero.

Any dps that cares about doing good damage cares about when heroism is so they can plan their cooldown usage appropriately!

And "being too lazy" to press one button? (in response to Kysen) That doesn't make any sense. Surely the effort involved in pressing one off the gcd ability will be more than made up for by killing the boss a few gcds faster.

It's more of a "if you have a way to make the fight end faster why not use it" type of thing. It's like in LFR if your dps is going to be shit the least you could do is throw a bone to the people carrying you.

Meh, it's LFR, you're not gonna fail a dps check.


You'd be surprised.

This probably shouldn't surprise me but for some reason it just blows me away.

I think it comes down to a combination of things:
1) knowing what it is and what it does but:
a) having been yelled at too many times about using it at the wrong time but never being told or figuring out when the right time is
b) figuring you don't need it (like pre-potting, etc.)
c) figuring someone else will do it

or 2) simply not having any idea what it is or why you should use it (I'd bet this is pretty rare compared to the above)

edited to add:

Really, I'm of the opinion that cooldowns are meant to be used. Survival cooldowns are a bit different, but I'll still use them in content where 'I don't need to' if it will help get the job done easier and faster. Why not pop hero on the last boss of a 5-man (I can understand earlier bosses because of time)? It's not like potting that costs money, giving it at least some sort of reason for limiting useage to certain content. I doubt many people are going to be jumping from a 5-man directly into a high-DPS check raid fight where that debuff is going to cause them to flip a table.

My current amusement's is Blizzard's lack of understanding of rets and so, once again, we're getting a 2 min baseline CD. So we'll be nerfed because "our dps isn't where blizzard intends it to be" as they've stated in the past.

Hunters are generally SV in LFR, and typically don't bring a corehound anymore, since mages got the spell as well.

There's one other problem with hero/lust/warp in LFR.

If you use it at x point in the fight, 50% will yell at you that you used it too soon, the rest will yell at you that you used it too late. I got to the point with my shammy that I always let someone else cast it, so they would be the target of the 12-year-old and basement-dweller rage.

i am almost always survival
why bother with it when you have shamans and mages that can bring it, and i get to play my preferred spec

and if you say it enough eventually someone will use it...
though generally i am the one that does when playing my mage or shaman

I just like to zone out and do my rotation and not think about it if I'm in LFR, and generally expect someone else will hit it at some point. Usually the wrong point.

Pretty sure it's not only men that have female chars that look that way. Granted, most of them are, but I'd bet there is a non-zero number of females with similar female chars.

Unless of course you're operating under the notion that the are no girls on the internet (which would be rather odd for you in particular ;))

The closest I've got, offhand, that I can think of is my shaman (Blood Knight set), and my hunter (crafted Scorpid scale). But they're not quite that naked.
