Old and busted:
New and shiny:
I remember the first time I tried Dr. Boom. It was after my lock hit 70.. Dr. Boom doesn’t work for melee.. and so was useless to Tatia the holy Pally. I went out on my warlock.. and tried Dr. Boom.. and was amazed that I killed him. I got to fiddle with my spells.. and hit all the buttons to see how they worked.
Dr Boom was out at the end of the world. The only people out there were questers.. and other people testing their skills on Dr Boom. The test dummies are nice substitutes for Dr. Boom. They now allow melee to fiddle with rotations the same way that ranged has. Though I do wish there were dummies in Shattrath.
BUT, they’re in the middle of the city.. which means.. standing around casting shadow bolts.. is a little bit obvious.. and attracts attention. I had a very hard time keeping my rotations up.. only because I had people asking me questions.
“How do you like deep affliction?” (LOVE LOVE LOVE)
“Wow, you never run out of mana do you?” (not as long as I remember to life tap)
“What’s your DPS?” (750 with SB spam, 1020 with a rotation that doesn’t include Immolate.. but I’m fiddling with the rotations)
“What spell was that?” (haunt)
“Did you copy your spec from Wowwiki?” (Seriously?.. because I’m not qualified to spend my own points?)
And on.. and on.. and on.
Seriously.. Let a girl thrash about in peace.
