  1. This is a guide on how to use addons to make your UI work for you, so that you can optimize your gameplay. Now, this is meant to help, not shame. You don’t have to feel bad if you don’t want to use addons, even if lots of people say they’re great. If you like these ideas, and the idea of putting in the time to learn them appeals to you, great. If not, don’t let it ruin the fun you’re having. Got it? Then let’s begin! The base UI you’re presented with when you first start the game is... sufficient. You have all the information there that you need. Your health, your target, your buffs and debuffs, members of your group or raid, your action bars, your minimap... And you can customize it to an extent. You can make it show target of target, buffs/debuffs on target or group members, extra action bars, etc. Some people get by just fine using the base UI; some even excel with it. But I am of the strong belief that customizing your UI can give you an edge, and if the huge selection of mods (a.k.a. addons) out there indicates anything, I’m far from the only one! Of course, having your UI altered takes getting used to. You have to unlearn reflexes and train yourself to take input differently. For many people, that’s a turn-off, and something they just don’t want to bother with, though there are rewards in the end. Mods also require learning how to actually implement them – how to install them, what all the terminology means, and how to configure their options. But fear not! I’m here to help! And you can start off small, and add things over time. Or, you can go for a mod pack, which are collections that overhaul the UI entirely for you, and which are designed to take the strain of learning how to configure mods off. Let’s talk about both options. Mod Packs There are several highly recommended mod packs out there. One of the most popular is ElvUI, which several very skilled players I know use (such as my husband, after grudgingly giving up the vanilla UI after some 8 years). Mods packs generally have all the addons preconfigured in a pleasing and helpful way, and some, such as ElvUI, even walk you through a couple of options you can set yourself. If you want to dive right into a fully customized UI, an option that is surprisingly easy and pleasant, I would recommend starting with ElvUI ( Another popular option is SpartanUI ( if you want to check out how both look. Individual Mods Alternatively, you can tweak one thing at a time in your UI. A lot of people like to start out with one change – improved unitframes, for example. Those would be the player icon, target icon, party member icons, etc. You can make them look much cooler, such as with 3D models and nicer borders. Or maybe you want to have more action buttons, and in a more compact style. You can do that with an action bar mod. In this fashion, you can slowly add things to your UI as you get comfortable with them, and build a custom UI exactly to your liking. The rest of this guide will cover individual mods. If something piques your interest, try it out!
  2. Hello: I am Kharthak—a healer shaman in The Grim. I have taken on an active interest in healing for 3s. Right now, I am borderline 1700 rating as of S2 Legion. I was about 50 or so points from 2k in Warlords of Draenor S3 when I started taking on healing. I need 2 dps, preferably from these classes: Hunter/Paladin, Paladin/Rogue, Rogue/Demon Hunter, Paladin/Demon Hunter, Warrior/Demon Hunter, Death Knight/Demon Hunter, Windwalker Monk/Death Knight, Feral/Warlock, Warrior/Warlock, Rogue/Warlock, Rogue/Hunter, Spriest/Warlock, Mage/Warlock (maybe, because I don't understand how MLS is played). All of these are comps that are Resto Shaman viable in at least a tier 3 (T1 is easy, T3 takes a ton of practice, but can be worked out) skill range. That way, you don't have the mentality "Oh, my class sucks; this comp is bad, etc." preventing you from creating a strong personal analysis over your own gameplay. What I am looking for in a player: Willingness to play. If you have any of the aforementioned classes, and you want to improve with it, this is right for you. A fixed time for practice (I have tried just queuing whenever with people, which can still be done even with a fixed time, but it usually causes confusion and wastes a bunch of time). Common goals—I am going for Rival at the end of this season. That will be somewhere flirting with 1700-1900ish. If you have never broken 1550, that's fine. I am going to ask you to read PVP class guides before queue sessions so you can constantly be generating new ideas and keybinds. Contact me in-game and we can get something started. You might also post something here, but I cannot guarantee that I will see it immediately. We will get started as soon as I have two people from these class combos.

    Rated BGs

    The rated BG blue post FAQ can be found here: As a new player to Twisting Nether (and now knowing that some of my friends will be coming with me) I'm very interested in networking with other like minded individuals to do rated BGs in cataclysm. I think the easiest way of doing this is to make a channel in game in which players who wish to participate in rated BGs together can join, kind of like the LFG channel, but LFBG. Alliance pvp channel: AlliedDefense I'm sure a lot of folks will be trying to run with their guilds as often as possible but the chances of having 15 members online, in the same bracket, etc. every time you want to do BGs is slim. A network of people who are willing to listen and cooperate in BGs is the best way to find a ringer or a 15th or what have you. I did a lot of organized battle grounds during vanilla wow and I'll be editing this post later with a basic primer for how to succeed in battlegrounds.
  5. Ergh...I just now realized I misgemmed my Merciless Gladiator's Felshroud pretty badly. Veiled Noble Topaz instead of a +resil gem. What should I be putting in my Felshroud set instead, gem wise? >_< I feel like such an idiot.
  6. It's the Battlegroup that sucks! WTB server battlegroup transfer! I need AB marks!

    Epic BGs

    A more focused version of the "Brag" thread. Record your epic BG moments here! Alterac Valley last night. We were up against a Maelstrom premade. It had been premade after premade all night, and the Horde was tired of losing. So we banded together and cooperated. The fight lasted long enough for us to summon Lokholar the Ice Lord, and soon the air was filled with his cries of, "I drink in your suffering, mortal. Let your essence congeal with Lokholar!" While most of the Alliance force tried desperately to cap the Frostwolf towers, the Horde capped enough bunkers and slew enough Alliance so that we won the reinforcement war after 54 minutes, with 178 reinforcements to spare. Premades shmemades.
