Paladin Divine Illumination Macro

Divine IlluminationDivine Illumination
Instant, 3 min cooldown
Reduces the mana cost of all spells by 50% for 15 sec.

Divine Illumination is deep in the Holy tree. It costs 0 mana and doesn’t trigger the global cooldown. I’ve had the talent for a very long time but I’ve been -really- bad about using it during combat. It’s one of those “long-ish” cooldowns so I try and “save it”. Which most of the time means that by the time I could best use it, I’m up to my ears in heals and forget to use it.

Warlock Seduction Macro

SuccubusLast night Lilac was part of a level-appropriate guildie run through Slave Pens. We were Corddon (63 Protection Paladin), Khoss (62 Healing Shaman), Sae (62 Hunter), Booie (62 Fury Warrior), and Lilac (62 Affliction Warlock). We did fairly well. We had our fair share of wipes but it went well. As part of the run I got to try my hand at crowd control through Seduction.

It went ok.. but it looks like I need to think about it a little more and work out some decent macros.

I’ll Make You Famous!!! (AKA: OMG! I have a fan!)

First I posted my Lurter video. Gently ribbing my brother (and the guild) about lurting.. with a piece of candid video from an actual lurt. The extra commentary from the guild was priceless and I -had- just figured out how to make videos.. and it made me laugh.

Then WowInsider linked to it. (WTG guys.. [...]

Guild First: Netherspite

Group Shot Finally! We figured out juggling the beams. I still hate the red beam with the fiery hot passion of a thousand burning suns.. but at least we’ve proven we can do it.

We finally downed him with only 30 seconds left before he enraged!

Speccing by Shotgun

So I play a lot of toons. I’m getting a feel for them as I play them.

I’ve dug deeply into the Paladin and Warlock spec trees. I completely -get- the Holy and Protection Paladin trees. I’ve compared the different talents and come up with my favorite Holy and Protection specs. I’ve read all the talents and understand their tradeoffs. I leveled my Paladin before the buff to the Retribution tree and I’ve never gotten a chance to play her as full Retribution so I’ve never dug very deeply into that branch to figure out a good full Retribution Spec. I’m ok with that. (Fiancee is currently leveling as Retribution and I feel bad that I can’t offer him better advice.)

I’m fairly knowledgeable about the Warlock trees. I -get- Affliction and have a vague understanding of Destruction and Demonology.. but not enough to talk knowledgeably about which are the best talents for a good Destruction or Demonology spec. Still.. I kinda get it.

I realized this weekend I totally don’t get the Hunter trees (or the Druid trees for that matter).

DotDotDotFear

I’ve finally hit my groove with Lilac. It’s not total.. and I haven’t moved up to taking on multiple mobs.. but I was able to fully dot up a mob to the point where it ran at me.. and then use a combination of kiting/fearing to get the last little bit of health out of the mob without actually being hit by the mob. Additionally I was able to do this and end the fight at nearly full health/mana. Feeling kind of uber.
