Patch 3.3 & You; PTR Updates!

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2009 by Admin

Patch 3.2 was a good one for Mutilate Rogues’ and Patch 3.3 looks like it will be too. Recent updates to the Patch notes appeared yesterday.

Deadly Poison: In addition to its existing effects, when a rogue applies Deadly Poison to a target which has already reached the maximum number of applications, this will also trigger the poison which the rogue is using on his or her other weapon.

Improved Poisons: Bonus chance to trigger Deadly Poison from this talent increased.

This means for Mutilate Rogues on a single target you should see more procs of Instant Poison. This should be another great DPS boost for us.

The change with improved poisons should also boost the Mutilate Spec DPS with multiple target boss fights. Although the percentage help is very small, anything to help rebuild stacks of Deadly poison on a target is welcome!

Keep it coming Blizz!

I haven’t posted in a week or so.  Not much has been going on in game but the main reason is I have been working hard on the new website. www.DPSforDummies.com Link in the sidebar.  The site just has a landing page right now but I hope to be able to have it up and running soon!

Edit; Site’s up and running.  Check it out!

Killing Time

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , on November 8, 2009 by Admin

Guild setup an EoE run for tonight. Not enough healers or DPS so we Pugged a few. Scheduled for 7:30 and we are now going on 8:30 and we still don’t have everyone in vent or even in the Instance. This is the reason we shouldn’t be Puggin. We make ourselves look bad to other guilds by not having these “Guild Runs” well planned out.

Edit: Shortly after 8:30 we got going. We wiped multiple times on phase 3 before calling it. Not gonna lie, I’m not very familiar with fight so I probably wasn’t helping the first couple times but got it towards the end by following simple directions. “Stay out of the static charges Dummy”. Those things must be noob-proof as we failed multiple times because people were spreading out to much. Called the raid at about 9:45 as we had multiple people who dropped. I certainly can’t blame them. Maybe another time!

My First Time with Ony

Soooo….I’m a bit behind here but I have never really had the urge to head into Ony’s Lair.  The guild put together a group to run tonight.  After three wipes we finally got her.  Nothing good as far as loot but it was definitely a learning experience.  And seeing 8k DPS on the charts doesn’t hurt my confidence either (Thanks to phase 2 for that).

For a Rogue there’s not much to this fight.  PHASE 1 – Tank and spank but stay on the side of Ony to avoid tail and talon swipe.  at 60% health you begin PHASE 2 – First Fan of Knives the group of whelps that come out.  Redirect aggro using Tricks of the Trade.  Also your are watching for “Deep Breath” and you must immediately move to a wall in her lair.  After first phase of whelps switch to Guardian Adds (move out of range of guardians during blast nova) until 40% health and then begins PHASE 3 – Another tank and spank with some fears thrown in.  It’s really nothing when everyone pays attention and does their job.

It was short and fun and now that I’ve got an idea of how the fight goes I’m not as worried about Puggin it for 25man.

Ooo! Piece of Candy…Mutilate Deeps Revisited

So I hadn’t posted about this since I picked it up but I got my Black Night’s Rondel a couple of weeks ago but I hadn’t bothered heading for the tacklin dummies to test out my Deeps.  Well I did a few nights ago and was mighty surprised at what I found.  I was hitting 4k and able to sustain it unbuffed!  This is all compared to the boost Mutilate got after the 3.2.2 patch.  Check the link to read my story before…

I’m still interested to hear what some of my fellow mutilate Rogue’s are doing as far as Unbuffed Sustainable DPS?  A noobs gotta compare himself with someone!

Humpday – Rants and Raves

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , on November 4, 2009 by Admin

Rants to the people who leave guilds after they joined them knowing it was casual. Specially if they are a group of good friends because they leave behind a group of good people in shambles. Makes it impossible to raid without pugging a few. I know I’ve harped about this before but it’s something that really bothers me in-game.

Raves to Scott and Randy at the instance podcast. These guys are the single reason that I am still playing. They keep it interesting and fun for me. Scott also has tons of other podcasts that he works on but it’s amazing that he finds time for all of them. Link to theinstance.net in the sidebar.

Happy Humpday!

What to do when your guild falls apart?

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2009 by Admin

Events of the past couple weeks have made me start to get away from the game. We have lost our main players over the past week or so. Our main raiding group was tired of the casual style of the guild and when they invited other players to join them they were upset when they wouldn’t show up. This type of stuff gets under my skin also but in the same way it’s not something that will make me take off looking for another guild. I like the people in the guild. And the few that stayed behind are my best in-game friends.

Now that they are gone I am realizing that we are only left with 6 or 7 viable raiders for Ulduar and ToTC content. And I don’t see us doing more Naxx runs just to get some gear for our new 80′s. But we have added a few new players trying to fill out a raid roster. But so far it’s been a Fail getting capable raiders.

I love raiding and it’s the only thing that keeps me going. I pug VoA weekly but has anyone else ever dealt with the problem of having a good raiding guild who falls apart into a casual guild and how do I get back to raiding on a regular basis? I don’t mind Pugging but would rather have a group that I’m familiar with. A group that know each other and knows their job during a boss fight.
