Yeah, I installed it back when we hit 80 since dual spec didn't update everything... and I keep it installed because it's hilarious to watch it spam the shit out of everyone. I have a LOT of hunters that don't use their L80 skills, and a DK that was using rank 1 Plague Strike. And a Nika that was using rank bad player Consecrate.

I have this installed as well, but after a while I disabled it wispering other people - Wintergrasp on my server is dead as far as alliance go, typically a single alliance (no joke) vs 60+ horde, around their graveyard. It goes mad in that setting ..

holy crap necrolite!

wanna come to my server for some competion?

(last time i looked are Archovans Journal)
Allice Captured: 418
Alliance Defended: 275

Horde Captured 253
Horde Defended 251
(close to the numbers but not exact, it was a couple weeks ago)

but yes alliance had capped WG more then twice teh times horde had defended

i personally think the only time horde get WG on my server is when alliance all go to bed :twisted:

Pfft on Blackrock Alliance gets WG once or twice a week.... No Joke. Anyway i'm gonna get this addon. Someone sent me a wisper from this addon last week for using a downranked flash of light lol. I was wondering what that was! Thank You.

Honestly, if someone can't understand that it's an addon whispering them a canned, neutral message intended to help them... I'm happy to /ignore them when they start crying.

I like Rankwatch, though since a significant portion of my time has been spent sub-80 lately, I haven't had it enabled.

One of the best features of the addon is when you ding it'll tell you what ranks of what spells can you learn at that new level :)

Doesn't quite work if you tend to abandon your alts for days :)

I was under the impression that it was no longer possible to use down ranked spells. Is the change just that the mana cost is the same regardless if your using rank 1 consecrate vs. max rank? I remember back in BC I would use rank 1 for finding my rogue friend during duels, then there was a change and it no longer worked to use rank 1 or at least wasn't efficient.

You've been misinformed, I'll clear it up for you.

There are still multiple ranks of spells and you still have to go train the new ones, you can always use any ranked spell, however:

Using an lower ranked spell after the changes bliz made back in TBC to remove the practice of downranking now suffers from the following drawbacks: It costs the same mana as the max rank, it suffers from less scaling than the highest available(to you) rank.
The net effect being that a lower ranked spell will always be weaker in effect* and cost the same as max rank.

Downranking is bad(see footnote).







*There are a few practical exceptions like warlocks using rank 1 lifetap before a fight to get their glyph buff up.

Of note that in Cataclysm there will no longer be multiple ranks and we finally won't need to worry about rank sillyness anymore. (This should have been done back when they nerfed downranking, there's no point in having multiple ranks if downranking is not intended)

Pugged an ICC25 on my warlock this weekend and saw two rank 5 rebirths on the same attempt of Festergut. Max rank is, of course, 7. I thought this was hilarious.
