Well, now! They really did nerf the heck out of most of the level 70 instance content. Foed cleared Black Temple in 3 hours 16 minutes last night and we weren't actually trying for a speed clear. There were even boss fights we really should have wiped to, but the bosses were so nerfed we could just power through. And Kara was cleared, night before last, in about 2 hours (previous Foed record was just under 3). My DPS was better on bosses, but worse on trash (it died too fast, I think) so my average DPS didn't change much. And, of course, Ncyphon (the only other SPriest raiding with Foed) beat me out at ever turn. *sigh* I really wish I knew what I was doing wrong.

Gratz on the clear... We only finish past Mother in about 2, and dropped it cause most of the raid was having lag greater than about 1.5 s...

What addons do you use in raiding? One I might suggest, if you do not currently use it, is DoTimer (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info5302-DoTimer.html). It helps me as an affliction warlock keep my dots up near 100% of the time. That translated to more than 2000 DPS last night on several bosses when I have barely hit that as a destro lock pre-wrath patch O.o

Lets see if I can pull them all from memory

Ora2, Grid (for dispells and because it USED to tell me who didn't have priest buffs. That plug in seems broken right now. *pout*) Omen and Recount.

I used Spellminder for a while, but was just wan't useful. Also, I am pretty sure I had DoTimer for a while, but it overlapped with Spellminder a bit and, well, I can look at the portrait of the mob to see the timing on my DoTs. After reading the weeping and wailing on Shadowpriest.com, I expected to have mana issues, but really didn't. Which just means that, if I am, in fact, letting DoTs lapse, I can just start overlapping them more. But I tend to overlap them a bit anyway (Shadow Word: Pain, though, gets refreshed by Mind Flay for me, now, so a timer won't work well.) My big problem may simply be that Mind Blast and Shadow Word: Death get a few moments off cooldown while I try to keep DoTs up. And now I need to keep Devouring Plague on cooldown, too.

It's an interesting juggling act. Ncyphon just does it better than me, I think. He's also an enchanter, so he's got enchants on his rings. The cheater.

I stole Erica's account :p

I'm an enchanter as well, cheating is fun :)

I love the juggling act that SPriests and AffLocks have, it makes it a lot of fun. It will take some time for me to personally get my rotation down... maybe Ncyphon did Beta or Test Realms and got a headstart on figuring out what to do...

It certainly keeps me paying attention, I just wish I was better at it. ;)

At least yer able to run. I've been fighting my addons. One of which turns the chat area into a huge white box, leaving me unable to see anything. And I'm getting an xml error and, from talking to others, it looks like most of the errors are related in some way to the Stubby addon.

Parts of CT raid were also giving people that white chat box.

I have Stubby running (but a very new version) without issue.

There used to be a program called WoWAceUpdater, but we killed their servers. So. Cursegaming has a new version of it called WoWMatrix. It took three rounds, but it got all my plug-ins (ALL! Even Auctioneer and Gatherer!) updated. Some versions are beta, but that's to be expected.

Cosmos and Titan are packages that contain a lot of addons for WoW.

I do to. But for 3 days now I've been trying to find the addon in my list that separates the quests into 2 windows. The left window has the quests and their levels and a check box, and the other one has the quest text.

Can't say I have heard of that one. Is it new? It makes sense with achievements, but I guess I can see it's use before they were put in.

I think it's either part of Cosmos or QuestHelper. But since neither is working right, it's making it difficult.

I think you want http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info6887-DoubleWide.html It looks to match your description.

It looks something like that, but it's in 2 windows, and the quest level is next to the quest like:
[] 12 Hogger
[] 20 Van Cleef

And when you check the boxes, the items in the Quest Helper list on the right adjust themselves accordingly.
