Doing it Wrong

I've got to be doing something wrong on my paladin.

You can see him here. (The unenchanted shoulders and missing belt buckle are simply because I cannot afford the enhancements, and I haven't had the opportunity to get in touch with somebody who can make the leg armor. The cloak is the exception - it's green and so I really don't want to waste an enchant on it, only to have it be replaced when I get lucky - or get enough JP to buy a cloak.)

So. Here's my problem: How can I threat better?

I've reforged to hit and expertise caps, but I cannot hold AoE threat at all. I use consecrate and Light's Hammer, spam Hammer of the Righteous until my hair falls out, but I still lose it to warlocks and frost mages. I have to be doing something wrong here, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what.

And, yeah. I've made the mistake of not having RF up a time or two (bouncing back and forth between tank and heals, depending on which role the dungeon sticks me in), so that's always the first thing I check. I usually check it a couple more times just to be sure before I start griping to my guild about *@$(!*&^% frost mages all up in my threat.

As promised, a UI Mod Monday post despite the pre-holiday-madness, for all your UI, mod, and addon needs. =) I'm off to clean my kitchen so I can make a mess of it tomorrow. Have fun, everyone! Be safe, and Merry Christmas!

New community: rp_wow!

Hello wow_ladies! Not too long ago I posted here to ask if there was any interest in a roleplaying community. Lots of people expressed interest, so I went ahead and made one.

rp_wow is a brand-new community for those who want to discuss roleplaying and character building, find guilds and walk-up rp, create storylines, meet new partners, and more. It isn't limited to in-game contact; requests for rp via e-mail, messengers, LJ, etc. are more than welcome. Pretty much anything goes at this point while the community gets up and running. My goal is that people will feel welcome to participate and make the community the resource that they want it to be.

Thanks for reading, and please check out rp_wow!

So, we've been doing well in our raid group and have downed the Spirit Kings. We actually two-shotted that fight and we now consistently get down Gara'jal without running into the enrage timer or messing up our spirit world rotations. And now we come to Elegon . . .



In a lot of ways, this feels like an entirely different raid to me. Much more difficult. I have a few questions about him and since you guys helped us so much with Gara'jal, I thought I'd ask here.



1. Biggest problem we seem to have is that we consistently get a celestial protector as he phases and enters the draw power part. Our DPS has to down him and also focus on making sure our stacks are low for his aoe explosion when he dies before getting on our orbs and in position and whatnot. How do you deal with this mechanic? We've tried several ways of trying to time it where we wouldn't have one but it's still been an issue.



2. Tips for tanks getting back into position for Elegon quickly enough after the last phase? We've gotten gripped in several times after phase ends because the tank wasn't there quickly enough and it's quite a bit of damage as well as complicating killing the adds and getting back into position for this phase.



3. Any tips as to how to down the pillars at the same time. We seem to be having a hard time getting them down exactly at the same time and we've tried communicating over vent but it seems like we're wasting time trying to time it and slow dps on one side. How are other raids dealing with this?



Thanks so much for any advice!

Does anyone know why, when I change specs on my resto shammie to ele or back to resto, I don't loose any mana but when I switch specs on my priest from shadow to holy or visa versa I loose all my mana?

Just ... kinda curious.
