#4265425 Simplified Ashran Guide

Posted Lightningx on 15 November 2014 - 10:29 PM

Just gonna make a quick guide on this coz I know how lost I was when I first got to ashran. Now I have full gear and am pretty sure I got most of what happens in Ashran. Here goes

Ashran is by far the fastest way to get gear. Don't even bother with BGs or anything just instantly come here when you hit 100 if you want pvp gear.

Step 1: queue for ashran and get every single quest. Do all the random quests at the base while you wait to get into the battle.

Step 2: Once you get in the battle you will notice a large castle to your right, this is where the pvp gear can be bought

Step 3: The battle is fought in several stages. It begins in the middle, then moves on to the path leading to the tower, then the tower, then the enemy base. During these battles you will need to stand next to a large flag to capture it. The more people in the area the faster it will cap etc

Step 4: At the final stage you will have to defeat the enemy boss. He does 2 things. If you stand near him he will do a massive AOE for about 200k damage that will oneshot, so try to not melee him. He will also throw an axe in an aoe spot that will do a huge amount of aoe dmg. move away from it. Once this boss is defeated you will get 500 honor wherever you are in the zone at the time (625 honor if you attack him and are near to the base when he is killed)

Step 5: After the boss dies, the battle restarts and you move back to the middle. It restarts in around 3 mins

Step 6: Now you know the gist of the ashran battle, be aware that the only time you recieve honor is at the end when the boss dies. So theretically you can do absolutely nothing and just hit the boss once at the end and get 625 honor.

Step 7: Around the edge of the zone are a bunch of random named "areas" go to each of these areas and you will get a "bonus quest". There are also a couple of other quests you get from the base. Do these while you wait for your team to do the small battles as they give a chunk of honor and other stuff. Just make sure you get back to the final boss for the extra honor when he is killed

Step 8: Every so often some random "events" will happen. Just go to the specified place (it will be announced in the zone) and do the task and you get 200 honor when its complete)

Recap: Do quests around the zone waiting for your group to push to the final boss, rendezvous with the group at the final boss for extra honor, go back to the base to buy gear in the 3 min downtime between battles. GG

Hope this helps, pce

buying ANY razer, steelseries - ANY COMPANY THAT TARGETS GAMERS is a waste of money ALWAYS. Alienware, IBuyPower, etc - all garbage.

@Avengelyne, I use an ergonomic office chair from ergomax, I'm very happy with it and I find this design to be extremly comfortable, It doesn't have the flashy design of a DXracer chair but seriously who cares :)

But Tbh, I think the first thing you should replace is your desk, It seem to be very small and there is no space for your legs :(

I think you need at least a 130x70cm desk for a comfortable gaming experience. I have a 155x75cm desk because I have a strong feeling that in 2020 42 inches curved screens will be the new norm for the pc gaming master race :duckers:

My desk (Yes, I don't give a fuck about cable management) :

To conclude, buy a cheap ikea desk like this :

Optionally you can place your Tower case in this kind of furniture that goes below your desk (commonly found at ikea but forgot the name) it will reduce the fan noise, using a sound proof tower case like the coolermaster 652s could also be a good idea :

Also if you are single like me you should buy a back scratcher (If only I had a gf to scratch my back... :( :( :( ) :

The back scratcher can also be used to pet your cat/dog remotely :duckers:


Hope this helps,

#4062419 Frost/Unholy 5.4.7 guide

Posted sarma on 23 February 2014 - 01:45 PM

DK frost/unholy guide (5.4.7)

PvP Talents

Unholy :
Posted Image

Frost :
Posted Image

Those are talents that I use as default in arena. Talents and Glyphs should be changed every arena match depending on what composition you're playing, what you're up against, and what strategy you and your opponent might execute.

Level 15:
Rolling blood for unholy Plague leech / Unholy blight for frost

Unholy : Rolling blood for unholy for more aoe dmg .

Frost : Plague leech if you play with aspxyxiate or death advance, Unholy blight if you play with chillblains

Level 30
Lichborne for both specs is only viable option as it provides fear break ,polymorph/sleep immunity as well as good self heals because you can use deathcoils to heal yourself while lichborne is active

purgeatory tend to bug in pvp like guardian spirit did in 5.0-5.4 so this is not viable option and anti-magic zone is reduced to 3 seconds duration for 40% spell reduction so lichborne is always better

Level 45
Aspxyxiate is recommended for most cases for both specs. If you play with rogue or warrior or any comp in which you got plenty of short cd stuns provided by your teammates you can go for chillblains or death advance

Level 60

Unholy :
Conversion - Usable while silenced conversion provides 3-6% heal per second (its possible to spam conversion without calceling conversion aura doubling the effect for double the cost check macros below ) and its far superior to death pact and death siphon..Dk 4 piece bonus also interacts here giving you 3 runic power every second for 5 seconds while you are slowed which is usually all the time making conversion costing 2rp per sec!
However against comps that have low sustained dmg but high burst I recomend Death pact over conversion

Frost :

Death pact - conversion is not an option if you play frost because runic power has much greater value then it does for unholy dk. Spamming your conversion while you are trained will totally shut down your offense resulting in much less dmg output.

Level 75
Blood tap - why blood tap, answer is simple no rng. Other 2 talents are rng and sometimes you can do 5-6 deathcoils or frost strikes and they wont proc

Level 90
Desecrated ground - Extra pvp trinket and best option in this tier

Gorefiend has usage in 5v5 and rbgs but for 2v2 and 3v3 its just not good enough as you can already grip 2 targets in ring of frost without using it.

Remorseless winter is a pve ability and it has no use in arena games but
you can sometimes pick chillblains + remorseless winter as 5.4 strangulate is no longer on global cooldown so using strangulate+remorseless at same time on a shaman , priest or paladin healer will guarantee that rw stun will go off as they cant dispell/freedom stacks while they are silenced. Yet again if those healers are paired with enhancemet shaman , hunter , ww monk , or ret they can freedom their healers every time you silence+rw them making your RW useless.

Glyphs

Prime Glyphs:

Frost :

Shifting presences - mandatory
Dark simulacrum - mandatory unless you meet mw/war/hunter for example
Icy touch - Frost dks can purge alot this glyph is mandatory
Regenerative magic - i swap it sometimes with ds glyph against kfc

Unholy :

Dark simulacrum - mandatory unless you meet mw/war/hunter for example
Shifting presences - optional
Icy touch - optional , unholy dks can not purge much but sometimes you can get that bop off in 1-2 purges
Pestilence - Paired with chillblains its easier to slow opponets down and its easier to keep your dots up on multiple targets
Enduring infection - against double disease dispel teams such as priest/monk/x

Minor glyph :

-Glyph of death embrace - refunds 20 runic if you succesfully heal your pet

Gems / Enchants / Stats
General Priorities for Stats :

Unholy :
3% Hit>3% Expertise>Crit>mastery>haste

Most of dks go for pure crit gemming and reforging. Why is this so? In 5.4 they changed Unholy Presence to grant a flat 20% Haste to all things, up from Haste for melee (attack speed and Rune regeneration) only.Gemming haste or reforging it is total overkill if you dance your presences

If you plan to sit in blood presence and never go out of it anytime haste reforging and full str gems work just fine

Frost :
3%hit/3% expertise > Haste > mastery > crit

Frost dks gem haste because with full 550 gear you can make your rune regen under 8 seconds. Why is this so important?
This means that you can actually sit in blood presence while trained and still do descent dmg output on single target.


Recommended Gems:

Unholy :
Meta - 216 Strength / +3% Crit Damage or Tyrannical Meta Gem (Have both Helms ready, Strength meta still does more damage / burst while Tyrannical Meta Gem is better for surviving)
Red -  80 str / 160 crit
Yellow -  320 crit
Blue - 160 crit /  80 PvP Power

Frost :
Meta - 216 Strength / +3% Crit Damage or Tyrannical Meta Gem (Have both Helms ready, Strength meta still does more damage / burst while Tyrannical Meta Gem is better for surviving)
Red -  80str / 160 haste
Yellow -  320 haste
Blue - 160 haste/80 pvp power


Viable DK Comps
Dks are in pretty bad shape in mop but you can still reach high ratings.
I recomed dk/ele/druid , tsg or phd for unholy and dk/rogue/healer for frost.

Professions
Doesn't really matter. Use any professions that give strength or attack power gains. Blacksmithing is really good since it can give you crit/haste if you choose to do so. Jewelcrafting also can give you crit/haste, these professions give you choices on what you want to do.

What rotation do you use in PvP?
There is no "specific" rotation in PvP.

Playing unholy dk you want to get some attack power procs first such as Unholy strenght, pvp proc trinket or on use trinket or all 3 at same time then spread powerfull diseases on as much targets possible and pop your gargoyle.
If you want to do a hard swap you should have dotted that target first have saved atleast 10 blood charges and 3-4 death runes then aspxyxiate enemy healer and do 5-6 necrotics +gnaw on target
If your partner is free to dps at this point and your team has follow-up cc  you are already forcing major defensives or pvp trinket

Frost is easy to understand if you are in blood presence keep 2 dots up on a target fish a km proc then obliterate. If you are free to be in frost presence don't fish anything just put 2 dots on do rotation with this prio:


KM proc obliterate > necrotic strike > frost strike > obliterate

Addons:

I recomend getting magic runes but you can use this script if you dislike addons

/script RuneFrame:SetScale(2.0)
/run RuneFrame:SetPoint("top", 0, -325)

change values to move it where you want

-gladius or s arena or move anything to move your arena frames

After careful digital analysis of the submitted images, this seems correct; I am only a layman, but I believe the species to be a northern or loggerhead shrike. This species of bird's yearlong range clearly covers Arizona and much of the coast of NorCal.

nmp fat, ugly, stupid

jah skinnyfat, ugly, stupid

it's like watching two retarded children fight

We all known Jah is just Jah but it saddens me to see NMP do this shit because he is just a stereotypical American fat nigger who kissed arse to make a tiny bit of money, then proceeds to brag about said tiny bit of money he made, even though it was through someone else.

Ionno. If NMP is making good money doing what he's doing I think that's legit as fuck. Assuming NMP manages all of his friend's shit (a friend who happens to make decent money online) I don't think it's fair to say he's an ass kisser. I don't watch Sodapoppin's stream but I'm pretty sure NMP and Soda were friends before Soda blew up so it's not like NMP just ran towards the money and offered his asshole to be employed by Soda. If you want to see REAL ass kissing, watch Hotted suck the cum out of Swifty's diddle. I know how Hotted originally met Swifty and I don't care to explain the entire ordeal, but you can sense the awkward tension between Hotted and Swifty; it's pretty obvious Hotted isn't 100% comfortable around Swifty but Hotted puts up with it just to get his name out there. I still believe Hotted isn't a geniuine friend and just takes Swifty's kindness for granted, just watch some of the IRL videos of Hotted and Swifty together. I mean, at least with NMP and Soda they look natural.

I just hope NMP is doing other shit than managing Soda's life. I'm not a CPA or a CFO, but it's obvious you can't do what you do forever.
Better have 24s on that cadi too or you're doin it wrong

#3885653 WoW down to 8.3 million subscribers

Posted Affect on 09 May 2013 - 07:56 AM

I think it's to be expected. The people that "grew up" on WoW are getting older and are either going to more casual games or stopping completely. These later generations are tuned more towards console games or MOBAS. Not to mention there is no competitive scene in WoW. It's amazing how many people can get pulled towards a game that has 100s of thousands of dollars in prize pools.

Honestly, I believe streamers have caused some of this. Due to the amount of variety in streamers it's very easy to watch them and ultimately have them play for you. This isn't a diss to any of the streamers at all, it's actually quite impressive what some of those streamers have come up with and/or have going for them.

WoW is without a doubt a dying game. A very slow dying game, but one nonetheless. However, you can't knock them having such a successful life span. It is still ultimately the smoothest running MMO out there. I am quite sure they are happy with how well and for how long their game has stayed popular. I don't think it's even their fault. Yea the game has problems, as does any game. I believe it's just MMO's in general that is a dying breed.

The game itself is just old, yet still has almost complete control in the MMO market. So kudos to them. With that being said I don't believe they'll ever see an increase in subscribers. Maybe a few short spike resubs, but I don't ever foresee them going over 10m ever again.
