GGs, it was a nice event, but I'm disappointed we didn't put up much of a fight for entertainment's or our ego's sake :(. I have a lot more respect for Bailamos and all you guys for how well you played together.

PS: I love Mes and Phil so much I can't stand it!!! I just want to give them big kisses.

#3819295 Frost Bomb hotfix nerfed oh and warriors too

3 stacks to 1 is a bit overkill in my opinion.  But this was expected, Blizzard never gets this class right.  They make warriors too strong in the beginning and then nerf them into the ground, making them almost useless in arenas by the time they are done.  They need to raise damage on mortal strike and overpower to make up for this, without three stacks I dont see warriors killing much of anything.  I 100% didnt agree with this class being able to hit for 250-300k with all those stacks up, but with the trinket nerfs and now this, they really messed this one up...


#3797250 90th talent (ret)

Posted Kushi on 31 October 2012 - 01:39 AM

The cooldown of every single ability is pretty low in MoP and if you are lucky enough you have Exorcism up most of the time aswell so the level 90 talent is more of a filler. I personally think that, even though Execution Sentence does more damage if timed correctly, Holy Prism is a very reliable backup heal when you are out of holy power, out of mana/can't really cast, out of free FoLs or your partner is most likely gonna die if you waste a cooldown on getting holy power to WoG him. Also Holy Prism is a nice filler when you are getting kitted and does a pretty suprising amount of damage.

#3817164 US gemming resilience EU gemming damage, why the difference?

Posted Vanguards on 07 December 2012 - 11:50 PM

There's a common misconception that PvP Power negates Resilience. This actually isn't true because Resilience is factored in after PvP Power in a sense. Lets say a Frostbomb hits for 100,000. With 50% PvP Power it hits for 150,000. However, if a person has 50% Resilience, it would hit for 75,000 in the end.

Now lets pretend the Mage gemmed more PvP Power and the target gemmed more resilience. The PvP Power became roughly 60%. The Resilience became 55%.
Frost Bomb not hits for 160,000, but with 55% Resilience it hits for 72,000. This is not the exact PvP Power to Resilience scale; but that should give you the picture that Resilience = generally more damage reduction than PvP Power's increased damage point to point with full PvP Gear.

edit: In the end you can't just go one way or the other for everyone. If you play a class like Enhance Shamans, gemming Resilience is probably smart since they get trained over half the time. If you play a class like Warriors, it's probably good to use PvP Power against non-Casters and Rogues.

If you have enough conquest points it's probably best to have 2 sets ready. Wear the set depending on if the team is going to hit you or not. However with the upgrading gear factored in this season it's going to be a lot harder to do this.

#3812573 nice patch

Posted Vexxius on 28 November 2012 - 11:37 PM

The arena scene has changed, in that each match basically consists of a race between opposing teams to one shot one another. There's evidently very little importance of control (I mean setting up a string of CC, rather than just throwing instant CC while bursting), positioning, etc. in the current state of the game... it's pathetic. Shit like 180k+ Frost Bombs, 180k+ Chaos Waves, or 180k+ Heroic Strikes should not be in the game. Lower the damage from such abilities, and we'll see one of WoW's best seasons (surely, however, this won't happen).

#3811538 Pvp Power on PvP Weapons Stealth Buffed ?

Posted Exumbra on 27 November 2012 - 02:44 PM

I can see it now...

Warrior: "I have a one-stack, going for the one-shot"

Combat log follows:
Exumbroski gains dispersion.
Swiftyoneshawt Mortal Strike hits Exumbroski 350k.
Exumbroski's dispersion fades.
Exumbroski died.

Well, I guess i should have predicted that damage sooner and saved up orbs to disarm, my fault.

#3807389 How to prevent DDoS on skype. Proxy set up guide.

Posted hurrdurr on 18 November 2012 - 07:54 PM

Our Toolbox


PuTTY is a neat little program that allows you to do a lot of different things. The specific functions we will be using it for is the ability to tunnel SSH traffic through localhost ( to our VPS. In laymen’s terms, it will be transferring all of the data over Skype through a secure tunnel so that only the VPS you’re connected to is being exposed to anyone else.

This is a simple program that we will use that will transform the key we get from Amazon into something that PuTTY can use to automatically connect to our VPS.
Windows 7 Firewall

We’re using Windows 7′s Firewall (ANY Firewall can be substituted here) to disable Skype from connecting to the internet.
EC2 Amazon Access

Even though it requires a credit card to sign up for and activate, the only tier we’re interested in is 100% free. Amazon may authorize $1 to your CC just to verify that it’s real, but you won’t actually be billed any money. The free-tier that we will be using will be good for 1 year prior to activation.
The Process

The problem people have with Skype is that it tends to ignore whatever proxy you throw into the connection information for it. It doesn’t actually ignore the proxy, but it will simply add it to a list of nodes it will consider connecting to if you’re having trouble maintaining a p2p connection with whoever it is you’re chatting with. For security purposes, this makes it useless. Instead of adding our VPS to the Skype proxy list, we’ll add “What’s the point, though? You said it won’t even use that most of the time!” That’s where our Windows Firewall comes in! We’ll use Windows 7′s Firewall to block Skype from making ALL outbound connections to the internet. This means that when Skype tries to connect to the internet when you log in, it will see that there is no connection available. This forces it to look to any proxies the user has supplied for a connection. Ordinarily, these would also not work (since all outbound connections are blocked by our Firewall), however, localhost is not an outbound connection and therefore falls outside of W7′s restricted connections. This means we’ve effectively tricked W7′s firewall into becoming a routing tool! Skype will then begin tunneling traffic through localhost, assuming PuTTY is open and you are connected to your EC2 server that you set-up on Amazon.

The Walkthrough

If you came here straight from the first page just looking to a guide to mindlessly follow, this will get the job done. However, I highly encourage you to read the explanations given in the pages prior to this so that you have a thorough understanding of what you’re going to be doing with the programs you’ll be working with.

Downloading PuTTY

First, let’s get the program we’ll use for our SSH tunneling, PuTTY, and the program we’ll use for our Amazon key, PuTTYgen.
PuTTY and PuTYYgen - http://www.chiark.gr...y/download.html. [Picture]
Setting up EC2 on Amazon

Next, we’ll need to create an AWS (Amazon Web Services) account. You can click the “sign up now” button here - http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/. If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you’ll need to create one of those as well. The micro-instance we’ll be utilizing via Amazon’s EC2 service is free for one year.
After that, we’ll need to sign up for Amazon’s EC2 service and get a micro-instance running.

  • You can return to the same link earlier (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/) and click the “My Account/Console” drop down menu in the top right, then click “AWS Management Console”.

  • Next click “EC2″ under the “Compute and Networking” list

  • You should see an option that will allow you to “Launch” an instance. Click that.

  • Select the “Classic Wizard” option and click next.

  • Scroll down to whatever the latest Ubunutu server is with a star next to it, and press the “select” button next to it. You can leave the 64 bit version selected.

  • As long as everything looks like this on the next page, you can continue.

  • Press “continue” on the next page.

  • Then press “continue” one more time.

  • The next page asks you to assign a key/value name to the micro-instance you are running. This is entirely arbitrary and will not be used at any point here, so you can name these whatever you want, or simply leave it blank.

  • For the next page, you’re requested to create a name for your key pair. This will be used later on to log into the micro-instance. After you assign another arbitrary name, you can download this key pair.

  • On the next security page you need to select the “quick-start” bubble, then click “continue”.

  • Finally you can “launch” your instance!
Creating a keyfile and setting up PuTTY

Remember where you saved that keyfile that you downloaded earlier? Now we’re going to turn that keyfile into something usable with PuTTY.
  • Open “puttygen.exe”.

  • Click “load” and search for the key you saved from Amazon. You will have to select “all files” in the bottom right as the file you’re looking for is a .pem file, and not a .ppk file.

  • Click “save private key” and save it somewhere you’ll remember for later on.
Now it’s time to configure the program that we downloaded earlier, PuTTY.
  • When you first open up PuTTY, there will be two empty boxes for information. “Host Name (or IP address)” and “Port”. In the “Host Name” box, you need to enter your EC2 information from Amazon. Go to https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2 and click “1 Running Instance” to bring up a list containing the instance you launched earlier. Select it. At the bottom of the screen you will see your Amazon EC2 IP (it will look something like this). Enter this into the PuTTY Host Name box. For “Port” you can enter “22″.

  • Make sure the connection type is set to SSH.

  • On the left side of the PuTTY window, scroll down and expand “Connection”, then select “Data”.

  • Here you want to enter your “Auto-login username” as “ubuntu”.

  • Now expand “SSH”, then select the “Auth” option.

  • In the empty box here you need to search for and enter the location of the keyfile you saved earlier using puttygen.

  • Now select “Tunnels”. On this screen you want to enter 8080  in the “Source port” box, and make sure you’ve selected the “Dynamic” bubble beneath. Now press “Add” and “D8080″ should appear in the box above.

  • Now scroll all the way back up to “Session” on the left side, enter whatever you want in the “Saved Sessions” box, then press the “Save” button on the right to save these settings. Now when you open PuTTY, all you’ll have to do is press “Load” and “Open” to recall these settings and open your SSH tunnel.
Use Windows 7 Firewall to block Skype
  • Search for “Advanced” on Windows 7 and “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” should come up.

  • Select “Outbound Rules” from the left column

  • In the top left, select the “Action” menu and click on “New Rule…”

  • A box will appear on your screen. Select “Program” and click the next button.

  • Browse your computer for Skype to block, then press “Next”.

  • Press “Next” one more time, all three boxes should be marked on this screen.

  • You can create whatever name you want here; I called my rule “SkypeBlock”.
Now Windows 7 will not allow Skype to make any outbound connections! To test and make sure that this worked, try to open up Skype right now. If you were successful, Skype should fail to connect to the internet.
Force Skype to route through localhost
  • On the Skype login windows, click “Tools”, then press the “Connection options” button.

  • Under this connection tab, you need to make sure “SOCKS5″ is selected in the drop down menu. Now you need to enter “″ for the “Host” box and “8080″ for the “Port” box.
And that’s it, you’re done!
Now any time you want to log onto Skype behind your Amazon proxy, all you have to do is open PuTTY, load your settings, then connect to your EC2 instance (via the “Open” button) and you should be good to go!
