The Rules:

1) Be excellent to each other. No one likes a jerk. Don't be a jerk in this thread. No fighting, no put downs, no name calling - or else Reta will beat you with a stick. >:(

2a) The title of the next thread is to be decided by general acceptance before this one caps; try not to overlap with previous ones. Whomever caps the thread should make the new one.

2b) Keep the ToS in mind when deciding on a thread title. This will make it far less likely to be deleted. Also, the title of the thread should always involve food! This is the healer forum and we're weird.

3) Copy and paste these rules and the below list into the first post of the new thread. Add the title of the new thread to the bottom of the list.

Milk -

Boil water. Inhale the steam. Do this for a little while, but don't fall in.

When you're done, don't forget that both the pan, and the water, are probably still hot. ;)

Arena scares me.


Oh hellz yeah, agreed!

I disliked PvP of any variety (including friendly duels with *anyone*) until one of our raiders insisted on dragging me along for some funsies 2v2 exposure. I couldn't imagine it could be even as fun as a root canal, but he bugged me and bugged me and bugged me about it until I finally said "I'm going to suck, I'm going to hate it, and you'll just end up hating *me* too, but if it will shut you up FINE, I'll do one to show you how awful I will be at it"

You know what? I *was* awful at it! I died in like .5 sec flat.

But he said: "Well, try *this* next time" (I forget exactly what kind of CRITTOTHEFASE killed me, and what his suggestion was) and he made me agree to queue again immediately. And <gasp> I survived, like, 1.5 sec before I was splatted, and saw something I could have tried which might have enabled me to survive another second beyond that, which *might* have given him time to do something other than watch me die like a scrub!

And he said: "See? You made it like 300% longer than you managed the first try! Next time, do [whatever it was I had done] but watch out for them to try [whatever his new instruction was], and I'll [uh, whatever]. And just remember - you're a healer. THEY WILL FOCUS YOU if they're not complete idiots. What *you* have to do is pretend you're tanking. What can you do to make yourself as tank-like as possible, for a few seconds, while I do [whatever he'd be doing to make them fear for their lives if they continued to ignore him]."

And he made me queue for another with him immediately.

And you know what? He kept me re-queuing and improving for like 2.5 hrs, by the end of which I was like OMG THIS IS SO FUN EVEN THO I STILL SUCK AND I MOSTLY DIE VERY QUICKLY!

For quite a good stretch of time (I think it was all of 4.2), we capped every week, even though some weeks it was painful, and had clawed our way up to some not-COMPLETELY-sucky-even-though-it-was-still-pretty-sucky rating by the end of that arena season ;) We even started a 3s team with another guildie who's a much better PvP'er than the 1st guy. I've learned *way* more from that 3rd person, plus he's really quiet in-guild/in-raid so it gave me an opportunity to get to know him a tiny bit more, which I really appreciated.

I miss that time. In 4.3, my guild pretty much took a break from the game before that "first weeks of the new content patch is causing everyone to be super busy" thing had really subsided and the two of us just didn't get back into the swing of arena'ing. Then I got totally involved in levelling a Mistweaver 1 - 90 on the MoP beta... and now that MoP is underway, OMG at all the content I'm working on outside of raiding!

... sorry for the big ol' bloggy wall of text. But man, it's reminding me how much I miss that whole fun arena thing with friends!

In fact, you can do the inhaling while you're making the pasta.

Or the chicken soup. Chicken soup is even better.

I tried that ElvUi skin pack, Kaels, and it Lua-errored big time. Does it need to be installed as its own seperate addon, or does it need to be installed into the ElvUI folder?

Hm, I'm not sure. I use the TukUI installer. It appears to have put it in a separate addon folder for me.

Do you have the latest version of ElvUI?

Oh, and the consolidated buff frame is still up in the right hand corner. Uncheck "consolidate buffs" in options - interface - buffs and debuffs.
