[Hydra] You told me to do it differently. So differently I am doing it.
[Hydra] Since you asked me to do it differently I have to throw out the difference. It is different then what I have been doing the last 60gazzion attempts and am relearning it differently.
[Hydra] Unfortunately this new differently is different enough that difference makes me die.
Following is where Hydra rambles some more…
When I learn a new encounter it is extremely fun. There are some fights that are classified as “tank fights” or “healer fights”. Every once in a while it is a “dps race”.
A big HUGE part of my dps is movement planning.
To effectively move well I consider
Life Tap timing, etc.
Once everything is applied affliction’s only instant spell is Curse of Agony. CoA gets refreshed every 24 seconds. If glyphed it is 28 seconds.
Destruction locks can plan on moving every Conflagrate. The cooldown is every 10 seconds.
It might be basic but movement is also when you use your Life Taps, Death Coil, and Nightfall procs.
I move way more then my instants allow me. … Why? Umm. Because dieing is bad.
That is correct… down to the steps.
Rotface sprays in my direction. I need to move three steps. It looks like I will get sprayed but… I don’t.
Professor Putricide (This was the topic of the “difference conversation” with my RL. Granted a bit one sided. But well. … I was dieing and I don’t like dieing. … at all. I use to stay in melee so I would miss the oozes all together and then just dodge the flasks on the ground. To ranged with you!)
(Seriously … they are like car mirrors.)
I WILL GET YOU, WARLOCK! AND YOUR LITTLE FELPUPPY, TOO!!
(I swear that is exactly what the oozes emote at you. Listen the next time you will hear it too.)
If I had a computer that could handle recording WoW, I would love to show you how I move in the Putricide fight. But there are probably bunches on youtube by now.
Point of all this… I don’t know. Except a place to put some screenshots…
Staying alive is more important then dps, BUT giving your movement purpose gets the boss killed.
