#3799854 The WoW Vocabulary - Step 1 to improving your game.

Posted Shakez on 05 November 2012 - 09:58 PM

Hi everyone!  

I'm sure we've all noticed how certain actions in the game have certain words we use to describe them that only the seasoned WoW player would know and use. To talk a good game is to play a game.  95% of a WoW PvPer's life is spent AFK.  Learn to spend that time improving your vocabulary and demoralizing the competition!  Nothing lets your teammates know that you're a good player like using the right words in and out of arena.  These are a few WoW vocabulary words to help you become a better player -  add your own in the comment section!

Swifty -  To kill someone really quickly by yourself, not necessarily with any coordination from one's team.  Although swifty is typically used when describing a warrior doing 'down goes Venruki' damage, it could also be referenced to other classes, such as a warlock while using demon soul chaos bolt, a hunter afk'ing, or a mage with frost bomb and orb.

-Guys, I'm almost out of mana, if this game isn't over in a few seconds then I'm gonna have to drink or we lose.
-Don't worry, I almost have my swifty up!

-OMG, I just got swifty'd so hard! I didn't even get to link!

Realz -  To use all of one's cool downs extremely quickly in the most offensive of manners.  Someone who is realz'ing will stop at nothing to get the kill in the fastest possible way (typically a healer).  A player who is realizing will trinket the first CC and use all of their offensive cd's in the first few seconds of a game.  A realz cannot be stopped unless killed.  A realz knows no other target than its initial one.  A realz knows no such thing as diminishing returns - if silence or stun is off cool down, you will be silenced or stunned, no matter how short.


Neilyo - 1. To go out of ones way to do seemingly incredible cc and no damage (most commonly used in describing rogue gameplay).  To neilyo is to cc someone who didn't necessarily need to be cc'd and probably lose the kill attempt because of it.  
   2.  To try really hard in a duel or 1 v X situation.

- *Removed because rogues no longer exist in arena situations*

- Why is this warrior still playing? His paladin died 20 minutes ago? What kind of neilyo is he trying to pull?

Scumbag - 1. One who queues an extremely odd comp with the sole purpose (even if unintentional) of countering your comp.  Ex - Q'ing double enh sham + resto shaman into your mld.
2.  A person one envies, usually because of gear. Ex - A rogue with legendaries or a caster in WotLK with DFO.
3.  A person who annoys you.  Ex - A nagger, or person who nags a lot, is a scumbag.
4. Kaska.

Fun -  To do something one enjoys.  Fun in WoW is typically used to describe how much a person gets to play their character.  The best players control how much fun their opponents have.  Fun can be prevented by excess cc, swifty'ing, or ddos'ing (usually done by win trading scumbags, australians, or extremely obese 12 year olds).  

- Nice CC! That shaman is having no fun right now!

- Train the mage! Don't let him have any fun!

Step up your game.  Use the right words at the right time.  Dominate the competition one word at a time!  Trash talk is winning talk.

#3782358 Useful hunter info thread

Posted Kettu on 28 September 2012 - 01:23 PM

Since there is no similar thread, might as well start one.

:hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter:

Lets gather all new hunter stuff into one thread so people don't have to scroll through 10 threads when looking for info etc. Many people will find it useful.

You post something that you don't expect every hunter here to know.

I'll start.

-Pet attack doesn't break camoflauge anymore; you can hang around in stealth and pop CDs / intimidation / mend pet / pet skills and gank people without letting them ever see you. Quite useful in pvp.

-Most people know but few might not: Hunters now have 3 different knockbacks: Explo trap glyph, Powershot and Rhino pet. Enjoy on blade's edge arena etc.

-Was mentioned in the other thread, but might as well post it here: Stampede uses all your 5 pets' skills that can be left on autocast. For example if you have Spirit beast, Devilsaur, Wind Serpent, Core Hound and Rhino and you you pop Stampede, your entire group will get 900mastery buff (more at lvl 90), 5% crit buff. On top of that your target will get mortal strike, 50% increased cast time (25% in pvp), 4% more physical dmg taken and 5% more magical dmg taken debuffs.

-Quilen pets have combat ress

-Hyenas have 10% attack speed buff

-If you spec into Fervor / similar skills that are off GCD, macro them into readiness so you never forget to use them before popping readiness etc.

-Scatter shot doesn't break on pet dmg anymore; you can scatter your nuke target, stop auto shot, pop Lynx rush and smash kill command etc. Good for killing healers.
