My pet's better than your pet

Open Question #3: – I -think- Felpuppy is the best pet.. but is he better than Doomguard? Should I use Doug when not on cooldown or stick with Fzygwhateverhisnameis? Is it worthwhile to throw down Infernal for last 30% of the fight60 seconds of the fight and replace the felpuppy.. or should I only summon infernal [...]

Addon:Overachiever

Overachiever is an addon that tries to help you complete achievements. It does this by adding helpful notes to tooltips and by adding a couple of tabs to your achievements window.

In the picture I have moused-over the Glassfin Minnow School on the map, and Overachiever has added the note that I need to fish in that pool for some achievement.

Opening up the Achievement UI (Y) shows that Overachiever has added two tabs, “Suggestion” and “Watch”.

An ode to Doomguard Roulette

(Minor language warning for the video.)

Hi, so my name is Rhidach and you may or may not know me from the prot paladin blog, Righteous Defense. When I drew Nib’s name in Blog Azeroth’s Secret Santa shared topic I had a small crisis. I know very little about warlocks, your class being one of the few [...]

Elements VS Agony

Which do you choose Curse of Agony or Curse of the Elements or Curse of Doom?

Agony does damage.. but Elements increases your damage and the rest of your raid’s damage. BUT Elements shares a debuff slot with “Earth and Moon” cast by Boomkins (should be part of their DPS rotation) and with “Ebon Plaguebringer” cast by Unholy Deathknights (passive part of their rotation).

Affliction Warlock Pawn 3.3

I finally got a moment with SimulationCraft and found out they’ve made really nice improvements to the tool. I was able to setup several profiles on WowHead and then use those to generate information. I still haven’t figured out how to get them to show up side-by-side.. I have a feeling I need to edit a config file and I haven’t had time to do that.

Quick&Dirty SimulationCraft howto:
Download the SimulationCraft project and install it somewhere.
Launch the code by clicking on the executable (simcqt.exe).
Read the instruction (ok, I know you’re going to skip them.. at least skim the instructions).
Click on the “Import” tab.
Navigate to an import source (WowArmory or an already-set-up WoWHead Profile).
Click the “Import!” button on the bottom right-hand corner of the application.
Click the “Simulate!” button on the bottom right-hand corner of the application.
Marvel at the pretty pictures.

Addon: FriendsWithBenefits

Simple addon today.. don’t even have a screenshot.. but that’s because this one works silently without any fancy UIs.

FriendsWithBenefits (written by Tekkub) automatically keeps your friend list in sync across alts and adds alts to your friend list for easy mailing.

That’s it. [...]

Warlocks and the Pally Buffs

On the post earlier today Jacob commented:
[Nib wrote] “I believe our pets share pally buffs with us”
Yes, they do. My pally is never quite sure what to put on warlocks in 5-man dungeons — about half of you seem to want Wisdom, the other half want Kings. Now you’re saying you want Might? My poor head…

Felhunter notes

I did some quick and dirty tests with my felhunter and wanted to note them down.

Shadow Bite
Improved Felhunter

Fully talented my Felhunter should Shadow Bite every 2 seconds. The damage of that is increased by the number of shadow dots you have on the target. Shadow bite costs 3% of his base mana but if [...]
