    Good gear, good achievements / accomplishments, officer experience.

    Gemming / spec is a little bit strange - experimenting?

    That's a yep from me.

    Edit: Not sure if you're aware Gundrak is a very low pop server - just want to ensure you know what you're getting into. Some people love it, some people hate it. We're ultimately looking for people who want to stay long term. Ulduar is around the corner, and we want to smash it.

    Tbh I love the low population. No queues, bit hard to do heroics and when training/farming there is noone around making it very easy.

    Definate yes from me, your gear looks great and application is impressive.

    Please whisper either Schumacher, Aeon, Hotstreak, Ryzar or Ubaduck for a trial Smile

    Nah its not experimental, I've just found that i don't have enough trouble with mana to necessitate points in frost channeling and i use omen so i never pull threat.
    Also points in flamethrowing do not apply to FFB so I haven't bothered with that. By freeing up those points i have given my blizzard a chill affect which now means that because of frostbite it has a chance to freeze my target. So with shatter that frozen target now has 50% higher chance it will be crit by my continuing blizzard spell. This makes for a huge increase in AOE dps over trash pulls and in some cases adds during a boss fight. I think it is quite a valid change.

    The gems i have used to primarily reach the hit cap of 18%. I get 3% from talents therefore i need an addition 15%. I then receive 1% from heroic presence, meaning that i require around 14% from gear. Beyond that point i have gemmed to include around about 35% crit self buffed and the rest spell power. I have found that the 11% cast speed increase i get from haste on my gear is more than enough.

    Sounds valid I guess, since the majority of the current available content is trash.

    Firstly, the hit cap is 17%, not 18%. Secondly you'll certainly get 3% from raid buffs (misery/faeri fire) since we have both. Including talents and a friendly draenei, makes for a much more reasonable target of 10% Smile

    Looking forward to you coming over though. I'm a fan of people who know enough about their class to justify their decisions with it as opposed to those who do things randomly or copy from a forum.

    Fair call, im just used to not being in a proper balanced raid due to not having enough members.
    I'll be doing my last naxx25 on my server tomorrow and xferring over sometime next week. Just because i'm thinking u guys would have already cleared it for the week.
    Cheers guys thanks for all the quick feedback look forward to raiding with u all.
