Cheat Sheet.

cheat sheet

Just why do some players raise so many alts? I don’t know. I admire those those play one or two classes and thoroughly understand those said classes, including when change happens how to manage and adjust. In my experience, I never quite allow myself to understand and thoroughly study all the classes/specializations I play, but I do all right. (I must confess I get a little miffed when a player tells me things about Mataoka–almost five years and counting, she’s my girl, so back off, Jack.)

This post is for me, all for me, a simple place, where I can click and look up my stats for the girls quickly. If you find it useful, too, great.

A few explanations are needed here.

Not even going to touch Monk healing, Warrior-ing or Rogues today. Or Death Knights. I miss my monk, Sajja, very much, and Heartichoke is lonesome, as gnomes often are. In the meantime, I’ll keep trying to get what these girls need, save some gems and enchants, and stash away gold for all those repair bills. They’re going to need it.

Cheat codes.

Tell you a secret: sometimes I post information on this blog so I can read it on my lunch break and not have to worry about any judgment of my Internet history – I mean, no one would understand that I’m researching Azerothian Warrior specs. Well, maybe one or two of my co-workers. Koanni understands though. As the article in Icy Veins says, and as was my suspicion, ‘fury warrior’ is relatively easy to understand, and difficult to master (much like being a hunter). So, that gives me confidence. I can do this! I love the idea of having two two-handed weapons, so I’m going to try my best at first Fury, and then Protection. It’s going to take a long time though. She needs coins for the weapons, and a few more lucky RNG blessings, but I’m willing to give it a go. According to Icy Veins, of course I picked the one that’s gear dependent most of all:

The Fury rotation is easy to understand and play at a reasonable level, but it is very difficult to master.The Fury specialisation performs poorly at low gear levels (due to its high reliance on Critical Strike and Mastery Rating), so it is below Arms in terms of damage until one reaches a much higher item level. There is no exact or rough breakpoint for when this happens, so we recommend that you use Simulationcraft to find out when one specialization surpasses the other.

Big thanks to PlaidElf last night for coming to my rescue and helping me get Lesser Charms. This is a very, very squishy warrior. Off to get a protein shake. Believe me –I wish I could stay home today and just goof around on this girl. Some characters just beckon us, you know? Sit tight, Koanni. I’ll be home soon.
