Feels funny to think that we used to play with close to 0 addons and now many of us can't play properly without their overcomplicated UIs.

i look at a bare ui and think how the hell did i play like that?

When I see a lot of other peoples' UIs (including, sometimes, my own :oops: )I often find myself thinking "Why the FUCK do you feel the need to have the same piece of information displayed three times/have damage meters open in combat/use XPerl?"

If it hadn't been discontinued/I played at a bigger resolution (and if TukUI wasn't so damned convenient for keeping a bundle of things up to date at once) I'd totally think about switching to something like CareUI.

I found this screenshot in my old folder, named "omg hp"

You can both admire my awesome clean vanilla UI, and giggle at an amount that we used to consider absurdly high.

Yeah, we were doing trash and stuff. Also I hear you on how the UI's for WoW have evolved from having less than 5 to 50 plus. Also Drunken Core.

Maybe. Depends on if they squish ilvls or not. I hope they do, and that MoP quest gear starts somewhere around 200 or something. If they don't squish, MoP will hit 400K pretty easily, if not more.

SV is helluva specc right now - but certainly not OP. You're OP in LFR because you're not braindead and clicking random stuff or dieing to random stuff... I'm gonna be relieved the time I don't have to run LFR anymore...

did thesame as BM, with better dps than the SV and MM hunters that were there aswell.
And hunters are far from OP at the moment, more like mediocre :(.

Doubt it is soloable, the fire debuff hurts too much.

I'm a Death Knight. I laugh at your Fire Debuff. AND you can time throwing the totems, so that he never pulverizes the platform he lands on, thus never ending up with the fire debuff, Or at least significantly cutting down how much he has it.

The big question becomes, what happens if and when you run out of platforms.

I think I also want to try Archbishop, and possibly Jaina, I will need help for her trash though.

That could be brutal with always getting totem dumped, always having your island break apart AND having to deal with the debuff. Can you clear away a magic debuff with AMS?

What happens if you get all 4 islands broken and you are now swimming in lava with multipe stacks of the debuff because your DPS is not high enough to down him quicker?

1.) Totem drops should be the only time that I'm in the lava, as I should be able to time the totems to stun him as he jumps for pulverize, stunning him, and making him not break the platforms. I also have IBF, AMS, Army of the Dead (both cast time, and time the ghouls tank him) to help mitigate the fire debuff.

2.) AMS won't 'clear' it, the way bubble will, but timing its use during swings, can seriously mitigate how many stacks I get, and how much damage I take, combine that with it only being applied on successful swing, and I can use DRW for that, and possible wear 4t12 to lengthen the time that my avoidance sits around 50%.

3.) I worry about being able to do things often enough, right enough, that I can get him down before the 4 platforms break. it is very much a timing type of thing with the totem throws on him for pulverize, and I'm curious what he will do if I pull him to shore.

Again, I'm not saying I can Solo him, but I'm thinking about giving it the good ol college try

The jump is on a timer, if he is stunned when the timer is set to go off he wont jump. At least in my experience.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I didn't know that. I know that I've stunned him 'in the air' and it has happened. Good tip.

I don't believe you can get to shore. A "fire wall" goes up when you engage that is "just" short of the shore and prevents you from getting up on the shore, I believe.

Once the 4 islands go, that is it and you are in the lava.

Neither success nor frustration, but pretty damn funny to me.

In LFR on my shaman last night, and we wipe on Madness. Another healer calls for the 20k hunter to be kicked, and the leader keeps threatening to kick the healer if the hunter is kicked.

We kicked the hunter.

Then we kicked the leader.

What made it funny to me is that the leader had such an issue with the healer, who was #3 (I was #1). I had to commiserate with the healer. "She had it out for you bad, but her healing was as bad as her friend's dps."

Yes, the leader was also a healer, who was #6 out of 6 healers...by a huge margin. (I will see if I can post a pic of Skada for that fight later, if need be.)

Baine is completely, utterly totally, soloable. I worked on it Sunday morning, and was closing in on getting it done, but then the instances reset on me, and I was unable to get him to spawn again :(

I'm considering Recording the kill.

It was very amusing when after 90 minutes of being in End Time, a guildie was like... "That has to be the worst run ever right?" And I had to explain that I was soloing Baine. The hardest part was finding a good spot to stand for the totem smash. The Shortest distance is with your back facing the cave

Of course, healing meters are such crap in LFR, anyway. We had a druid as #1 the other night, spamming tranquility on cooldown, running HoTs on everyone he could as much as possible, and a pally healer that didn't cast really anything but radiance, who was #2. With all that going on, I healed spikes, did whack-a-mole on stuff, beaconed one of the tanks, dispelled on fights that needed it,(which #1 and #2 weren't doing) and ended up #4.

So, yeah, healing meters are not really indicative of the quality much of the time. Anyone can spam AoE and overheal and top the meters. With my pally on the first half of LFR, most of the time I can stand and melee the boss for mana, so I could spam Radiance and Divine Light and top meters pretty easily w/o mana issues, and not be worth crap as a healer in the end.

(Not saying your assessment wasn't right in this case, Amirya.)
