Best PVE Combo

Posted on June 16, 2008 by Stephen

Last night I played WoW with a friend. I have a lvl 34 shadow priest and he logged on with his lvl 32 protection paladin. We were clearing 4 mobs at a time (pally was tanking) that were +4 levels higher. Twice we cleared one +3 elite and two +4 mobs (the elite was a caster/healer) with the pally tanking all three and me doing DPS and heals. This was the best combo I have played in PVE. The prot pally does one hell of a job tanking and keeping aggro.

I have also run with combos with my warlock (affliction spec)/druid (bear form), warlock (afflic)/warrior (fury spec), priest (shadow spec)/rogue, priest (shadow spec)/warrior (fury spec) and none of these was nearly as powerful a combo as the priest/pally mentioned above.

Warlock Epic Mount Quest

Posted January 17th, 2008 by DarkFact at http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/26321

In addition to normal epic mounts you may purchase like any other class, Warlocks and Paladins get the ability to begin a series of quests for their own special epic mount. Warlocks get access to a souped up version of their Felsteed should they complete the quest, and Paladins get access to a Charger that looks like an upgraded mount of theirs as well.

In this page, we will go over how to obtain the Dreadsteed. While the Warlock's Dreadsteed Questline is the same for both Alliance and Horde, the Paladin Charger Quest line varies if you're Alliance or Horde.

Understanding the Priest talents and what they are meant to do. With three different trees of unique orientation, it can be difficult to decide what you want. Each tree has a very specific idea and is used primarily to that end.

WoW Raid Member Roles and Responsibilities

Each player should be aware of the tools their class provides for managing the battle and any aggro mitigating abilities they may possess. Frequently, warriors and paladins are expected to act as tanks, soaking up damage for their more tender counterparts, while casters and hunters attack at range. Detailed below are some of the different types of roles there are in parties.

Note that when in a raid or party, using the Omen addon helps to determine if you are pulling the right amount of aggro. If you are a tank, make sure that you are the aggro "winner" and if you are the DPS or Heal that you are not the "winner" of the aggro contest.

Ten Ton Hammer's Class Guides - Warlock

Affliction Talent Guide

This affliction talent guide will let you know which of the Affliction talents you should go for, and which you should pass up unless you're going full into this tree, which is never really recommended since having points into Destruction or Demonology really help you out in the long run. We will go over each talent, analyze what it does, and why you would or wouldn't want it.

I have been in Arathi Basin Many times now as an Affliction Warlock. By the time I was lvl 49 I finally figured out how to be the top damage dealer in PvP. Unlike a warrior or other direct damage dealers warlocks continue to kill even while dead. I have been very successful in PvP by running by groups and dropping DoTs on all enemies and then running a way off. I have loaded 5-6 enemies with Corruption and Curse of Agony to then be killed. BUT the laugh is on them since I am continually doing damage. In top form and loading only Corruption and Curse of Agony on 5 enemies I can gather over 2500 hp in 30 seconds. Most battles last 6-10 minutes. If I can load only once per minute I can easily rack up >10,000 hp damage during a battle.

WoW Priest Shadow Talent Guide from tentonhammer.com

Original link

This shadow talent guide goes over each of the talents in the Priest's shadow talent tree. This is the tree that most priests focus on while leveling since it allows you to do significant amounts of damage quickly. While many players find leveling a holy priest slow and painful, few players complain about "melting faces" as a shadow priest. Once at the end game though, few players choose to stay shadow though other than those that mainly solo, pvp or are needed in raids, Shadow Priests are still viable at end game in all situations, but most players look at priests as healers, not damage dealers and you will have a harder time finding groups.

WoW Priest Links

Posted on April 03, 2008 by Stephen

First off, let me say that playing a priest is not the glamourous high crit/damage life of a warrior or rogue, BUT it is tons of fun. I really enjoy the two way respect between the tanks and healers. During a raid, the tank may do the fighting but they expect me to make sure they can keep fighting and resurect them if they die.

If you like being social on WoW the priest is the way to go. I have been invited to raids at all levels by random people--about once every 3 times I'm online. WoW is great to play by yourself to grind and quest, but I like getting pulled into a raid with a well balanced group (tanks, dps, heals). Raiding is much more fun and definitely more exciting.

For those who are "Horde for Life" and want to play a priest, get over to Orgrimmar and get training in staves. Also get training at Undercity for Daggers. There are some very good staves that have +bonus to healing and have good dps. When you run through Scarlet Monastery, be sure to get the good dagger there (Hypnotic Blade--I think).

Here are some links that I have found to be very useful.
