I got rid of Carbonite. - it was slow and kunky.
Multi-threaded Compression is nice with my FX-8350.
I moved the camera to a position that works much better than where it was before.
Your UI already looks much better with those small adjustments. It's much easier to understand what's going on.
The new camera position is good, too.
1) it doesn't want to stay where i put it.
2) I cant seem to get rid of it. I have tried several addons to get rid of it. But it just wants to stick around.
Yes, you can try a few things to solve this problem.
1. You most likely did that, but try right clicking on your focus frame, select "Move Frame", then "Unlock Frame", drag it to the new position and lock the frame again. Relog to see if it worked.
2. If "1." didn't work, make a small addon to get what you want. Create a Folder, name it "Focus" and put two empty .txt files in it. Name them both "Focus" and change the file extension of the first one to ".lua" and the 2nd one to ".toc". Open Focus.toc with notepad.
copy & paste this:
## Interface: 50200 ## Title: Focus ## Notes: Focus Focus.lua
Save and close the file.
Open the Focus.lua file with notepad.
copy & paste this:
-- Focus Frame -- local FOF = true if FOF == true then FocusFrame:ClearAllPoints() FocusFrame:SetPoint("RIGHT", -380, 35) FocusFrameToT:ClearAllPoints() FocusFrameToT:SetPoint("RIGHT", "FocusFrame",-35, -37) end
Change the numbers of the code above to your needs.
Save and close the file when you're done.
Copy & paste the "Focus" folder in your wow addon directory, restart your game, activate the addon in your addon tab in the char selection screen if needed.
See if it works if you login.
3. Get: http://www.curse.com...wow/bug-grabber & http://www.curse.com...ons/wow/bugsack
activate them and login. Click on the small green bag icon at your minimap. Deactivate all addons which cause error messages. Try step 1. or 2. again.
4. If none of the previous steps worked, you have got an addon, which overrides the changes in step 1. or 2.. Find this addon and deactivate it.
You are not dumb, you're just not familiar with the matter. But this can be changed easily.
WHAT TO DO
My first suggestion was getting /target arena 123 macros.
Make a macro, call it what you want. Copy & paste
/tar arena1Put it on your actionbar and bind it to a hotkey.
If you press the hotkey when you are inside an arena, it will change your target to the first player in your arena frames (which are listed below your minimap by default).
Create 2 other macros for /tar arena2 and /tar arena3 (if you only play 2s and 3s in arena), put it on your bars and bind them to hotkeys.
Create 3 additional macros for /focus arena1, /focus arena2 and /focus arena3, put them on your bars and bind them to hotkeys...
The focus macros will change your focus frame according to the button you pressed.
WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT
1. You don't need to click your target, clicking is slower than pressing a button. Which means you can now react faster if something happens in arena.
2. Put one of the targets you are not on, on your focus frame. You can now see what your target is casting and what your focus target is casting, as well as their buffs and debuffs.
3. Because changing targets costs time and time is precious in arena, you can create focus macros for some of your abilities.
As an example you can do it for chains of ice:
/cast [target=focus] Chains of Ice
/cast [target=focus] Asphyxiate
/cast [target=focus] Death Grip
create those macros (and maybe more i.e. for dark simulacrum) and bind them to keys.
It is now possible to cast spells on your focus target without changing your current target, which again, saves time and resources.
But Askin... so many new hotkeys, i don't think i can remember them in the fast pace of an arena match
Yes, you can! It's all about muscle memory, it's just learning by doing. Queue 2s, practice your new binds and use them afterwards in 3s without even thinking about it. After a while, the "seeing-thinking-doing" gradually becomes "seeing-doing" because your muscles seem to "know" and "remember" just what to do.*
How to know which keys are good for those macros or spells?
There are so many guides, here is one of them: http://wowhead.com/g...tive-keybinding
You can find a lot more on arenajunkies, too. The first binding you should think about is Mindfreeze, because you keep using it on melee dps, that obviously do not cast anything.
If you are fast learner and/or have no problems with many bindings, you can also try making macros for your abilities directly for arena123, like this:
/cast [target=arena1] Chains of Ice
Last but not least, an additional personal advice from me:
Don't play arena with this girl in your VoD ever again, as long as she does the following:
Lying, yelling, raging.
How to make her not do it: Both of you need to improve on your communication skills.
Here are some examples of your conversations:
1. girl lying, yelling and raging:
Match against SPriest+Mage
You forced dispersion on the SPriest. Your partner MC's the dispersion and wants you to go on the mage while she's doing it.
You yell at her, because she wasn't calling it out.
She starts arguing, that she was calling it out like 5 times (which she did not).
The arguing goes on, she wants you to turn your music off and states some other bullshit to cover her lie.
All of that in the middle of an arena match.
Match against Warrior/DPriest
Girl: "I'm gonna get this warrior off you."
You: "Well, he is not on me, he is on you."
Girl: "NoOOOOOOooooo, i'm gonna get... FUAAARRKKKKKKK!"
Girl crying, laughing and yelling at the same time for another 15 secs and finally dies.
Generally something like this happens in every match.
How it could be:
You call out what you are doing, without yelling. Accept the mistake that maybe just happened, do it better next time, don't argue about it in the middle of a match.
Call out if you use a defensive or offensive cooldown, force a defensive cooldown or see an enemy using his offensive CDs and how you are going to react to it.
Tell your partner who you are on and what you are doing next.
Talk about a short general strategy in the preparation room, when you are seeing what comp you are facing.
Make a more in-depth strategy while outside of an arena.
Your healer should tell you what she is doing (but in a helpful way). She should call out what cooldowns she uses, maybe which CDs she has left, if she wants you to go offensive or defensive, if she needs a stun or a grip to survive the incoming damage and so on. In case she wants you to peel, but your peels are on cooldown, you can tell her, how long, until they are ready again.
Talk about your goals with your partner before you start playing. Start setting realistic goals (like getting to 1500/1600/1700 in 2s and/or keeping this rating), analyse your vods to see what went wrong and where to improve.
As a reminder, this all needs to happen without yelling at each other and without arguing.
Furthermore both of you, but especially the girl needs to improve heavily on her positioning and cooldown management. Both of you need use your abilities at the right time. Every single time your priest died, void shift was not on CD.
