Addon Reviews - XLoot

"A nice looking lootframe remake"

(Click HERE for more information)

To check out the other addon reviews, go here (here for the complete list).

What does it do?
It's a simple built-in loot frame remake that looks like the picture posted above. Basically what it does is replace the default Blizzard loot frames with these nifty ones. It doesn't really change the way you play, but just gives some candy for your eyes <--- looks DO matter! Don't let anyone tell you the differ.

Leveling Talent Builds, Now For ALL Of The Classes





Now, there are leveling talent builds for ALL classes! Yes, even warriors and priests NEW! Check out the new Leveling Talent Builds + Tips For All Classes (3.3.5)!


Note, that not all of the addon builds are ready*, but all of them have the talent build for leveling.



I will also be making new options alongside those already listed, as for example: 
  1. 20/51/0 Enchancement(/Elemental) Shaman leveling talent build for 3.3.5...
  2. NEW!!! 57/14/0Elemental(/Enchancement) Shaman leveling talent build for 3.3.5...
  3. NEW!!! 17/54/0 An altrernative Enchancement(/Elemental) Shaman leveling talent build for 3.3.5...

Priest Shadow 1-80 Leveling Talent Build & Guide (3.3.5)

Introduction
Priests have ever since World of Warcraft was introduced in Vanilla, been considered as the one and only pure PvE healing class. Although nowadays (3.3.5) other healing classes/specs have made their breakthroughs and nearly all healing specs are viable, priests are still obviously on a whole different level. 
Priests can't just heal, though, they are the most feared cloth wearer of the battlegrounds, Shadow Priests (or Spriests). This is what we will be using for leveling; their OP buffs, self healing and huge DoT based damage is sure to not only get you to 80 in no time, but kill everyone you meet on the way. 
Shadow Priests become one of the easiest classes to level at around 40.


With this Leveling Talent Build, you will be able to:
  1. Solo with ease from average to moderate elites, without having to worry about mana.
  2. Be the only "cloth wearing" class that can take beating.
  3. Get in to nearly any group as a healer (VERY needed) OR a dps and do well at it.

1. Leveling Spec


The leveling spec we are going to cover in this guide is Shadow due to it being a priest's only DPS talent tree. Despite being "DPS", it has still great sustain.

Shadow relies highly on its many DoT (Damage over Time) spells, slowly draining its enemies while using shields and various self healing abilities to survive the hitting.

6. Heirloom Gear

"Heirlooms bind to the account, as opposed to an individual character. This means they can be mailed (even after been used) to any character that shares the same account and server, including those of opposing faction."

For more information about Heirloom items, go to: http://www.wowwiki.com/Heirloom <- STRONGLY suggested]

*These same Heirloom items can also be used by/are suggested for MagesBalance Druids and Warlocks*

VPs -> Vote Points
[Tattered Dreadmist Robe] - Chest -> 50 VPs 
[Tattered Dreadmist Mantle] - Shoulders -> 50 VPs
[Dignified Headmaster's Charge] - Staff -> 50 VPs

7. Class Quests


http://www.wowwiki.com/Priest_quests


8. Glyphs


Major Glyphs:
Glyph of Mind Flay (level 20) - Increases the damage done by your Mind Flay spell by 10% when your target is afflicted with Shadow Word: Pain.
Glyph of Shadow Word: Pain (level 15) - The periodic damage ticks of your Shadow Word: Pain spell restore 1% of your base mana.
Glyph of Shadow (level 20) - While in Shadowform, your non-periodic spell critical strikes increase your spell power by 30% of your Spirit for 10 sec.

Minor Glyphs:
-


9. Addons

I recommend these following addons while leveling (playing) your Priest:
Rating Buster : Rating Buster converts stats into ratings and allows you to quickly compare two items to see which one is the best for you.
It can, for example, tell you how much spell power an item with 36 int would actually give you and if that item would make you gain or lose that specific stat when equipped.
Range Display : A light addon that shows the distance between you and the mob (or npc/player). Very useful to know exactly when you are in max range for a Mind Blast or any other spell. It is easily configurable as well.
Quartz : Considered the best spell casting bar addon, Quartz gives you hundreds of awesome features, including latency and range (to your target) tracking, while still staying relatively lightweight.

Paladin - Protection 1-80 Leveling Talent Build & Guide (For 3.3.5)

NOTE! This guide is not ready/supported.

Table of content:


1. Foreword
In this guide, I intend to show you the best talents, glyphs, heirloom gear, stats, addons and rotations for leveling a Protection Paladin. I will also give you some useful tips that will help you play your Paladin to a better standard.
Before you start I do recomend if you are new to the Paladin class you check out Harper1990's guide to starting a new paladin.


2. Leveling Spec
Protection, being Paladins' tank spec, does not have as high dps as Retribution paladins do. Due to this, many prefer to level as Retribution. However, Protection DOES have it's own potential, especially if you are leveling with a dps/healer. If you decide to level as Retribution, go see our Paladin - Retribution 1-80 Leveling Talent Build & Guide (For 3.3.5).

Protection Paladins might not be as good as Retribution paladins at single target dps, but they are certainly masters of grinding packs of mobs at once. This makes Protection Paladins viable for grinding leveling (leveling by killing mobs).
For this reason I'm going to write this guide about Retribution as it is the best choice of spec for solo leveling, which is what this guide is about. I will however, give you a good choice of talents for leveling as protection so you have a good idea of what you are doing


3. Talents






Protection
10 - 14: Divine Strength - 5/5
15 - 19: Aticipation - 5/5

25 - 29: Toughness - 5/5
30 - 30: Blessing of Sanctuary - 1/1
31 - 35: Reckoning - 5/5
36 - 37: Sacred Duty - 2/2
37 - 39: One-Handed Weapon Specialization (Only 2) - 2/3
40 - 40: Holy Shield - 1/1
41 - 43: One-Handed Weapon Specialization - 3/3
44 - 44: Ardent Defender - 3/3

61 - 65: Benediction - 5/5
66 - 67: Improved Judgements - 2/2
68 - 70: Heart of the Crusade - 3/3
71 - 75: Conviction 5/5
==> "Final": 0/51/5
I'll leave the last 5 points for you to choose. There are a few different directions you could go from here.
>Talent Calculator<


4. Abilities and Rotations WRONG! THESE ARE FOR RETRIBUTION!
Always take the slowest 2 handed weapon available
1 - 9:
- Start by 'turning on' your first seal, Devotion Aura.
- When fighting keep up Seal of Righteousness.
- When you get Blessing of Might, once again keep it up at all times.
- When you get Judgement of Light, use when ever available.
- Take the best DPS weapon you can 1H with Shield or 2H. (A this stage the slow weapon is not too important.)

Rotation: Auto attack + JoL when possible. Make sure Devotion Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Righteousness Buff on yourself.
10 - 19:
- Same as above but:
- When you get Judgement of Wisdom, start using instead of Light. (This helps keep your mana up)
- When you get Retribution Aura, 'turn it on' instead of Devotion Aura.
- Start looking for a slow 2 handed weapon, so you have one for level 20. (Remember you can train other weapon skills, so if you find a good 2H Axe, Mace or Sword you may not have the skill as base but you can train them in cities. You can also use Polearms when you hit level 20.)
Rotation: Auto attack + JoW when possible. Make sure Retribution Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Righteousness Buff on yourself.
20 - 39
- Same as above but:
- When you get Seal of Command, keep it up when fighting.
- If fighting more that 2 mobs use Consecration.
- Make sure you are now using that slow 2H weapon.
Rotation: Auto attack + JoW when possible. When you are fighting more than 2 mobs use Consecration. Make sure Retribution Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Command Buff on yourself.
40 - 49
- Same as above but:
- When you get Hammer of Wrath, use it when the mob has less than 20% HP. Your finishing move!

Rotation: Auto attack + JoW when possible. Use HoW when the mob has less than 20% HP. When you are fighting more than 2 mobs use Consecration. Make sure Retribution Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Command Buff on yourself.
This may seem boring spending all these levels doing basically the same thing, but you've got a nice little surprise coming your way!
50 - 59.
- Same as above but:
- When you get Crusader Strike, use it when ever it is up! (This is an extra attack that also does slightly higher damage.)
Rotation: Auto attack; JoW and CS when possible. Use HoW when the mob has less than 20% HP. When you are fighting more than 2 mobs use Consecration. Make sure Retribution Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Command Buff on yourself.
60 - 80.
- Same as above but:
- When you get Divine Storm, use it when ever it's up! (The same as Warrior's Whirlwind, but it also heals you.)
- When you get Divine Plea, use it when you are low on mana.
Rotation: Auto attack; JoW, DS and CS when possible. Use HoW when the mob has less than 20% HP. When you are fighting more than 2 mobs use Consecration. Make sure Retribution Aura is 'turned on.' Keep the Blessing of Might and Seal of Command Buff on yourself. Use Divine Plea, when low on mana.


5. Tips
Instances
- Learn your Resistance Auras. Some bosses do a hell of alot of damage from a school of magic you can protect against.
- Remember to buff other party members with your Blessings. Also give the approprite buff: don't give a Warlock BoM (Blessing of Might), like-wise don't give a Warrior BoW (Blessing of Wisdom).
- When healing, cast BoW (Blessing of Wisdom) on your self. This way you will regain the mana quicker as heals are costy.
Solo
- Just heal yourself with Flash of Light whenever you need to heal.
- Bandages help as well, use this if you have the feeling you are using to much mana (to heal).
- There a few oh**** methods when you can use to protect your self when you are low on health. You could:
- Use Hammer of Justice and then use a Heal.
- Use Divine Protection and then use a heal; or quickly kill the target if it is on low health then heal up.
Professions
- The best options are Skinning/Mining. They make lots of money: skinning gives critical strike rating and mining gives health (this little bonus was added in patch 3.0). These bonuses are small and not needed at all, they're just a good choice.


6. Stats
In the following order: Strength > Stamina > Intellect > Agility > Mp5 .
( Strength > Stamina means Strength is greater than Stamina, sorry if this seems obvious but I always get confused. )
Strength: Needed for Attack Power.

Stamina: Needed for health.
Intellect: Needed for mana, also gives spell critical strike chance. Needed for the heals and other spells.
Agility: Needed for Critical strike chance, also gives armor.

Mana Per 5 Seconds
: You won't see this alot until outland, and that is probabbly the only place you'll need it as in Notherend you'll be using divne plea for mana.


7. Gear.
Weapons & Shield's
I've chosen these weapons based on their DPS and Weapon Speed!
10 - 20:
Lvl 18 - 2H - Smite's Mighty Hammer
20 - 30:
Lvl 22 - 2H - Strike of the Hydra
Lvl 27 - 2H - Corpsemaker
30 - 40:
Lvl 37 - 2H - Ravager (I was reading throught the comments on Wowhead about this axe. You need to watch out if you are doing an instance that you don't break CC with this axes proc. Perhaps use a different axe in instances.)
40 - 50:
[Change to come]
50 - 60:
Lvl 51 - 2H - Ice Barbed Spear (Very hawt spear, all you have to do to get it is win an AV!)
60 - 80:
Your choices here are really linear, you will be given a really nice 2H all the way to 80.


On your carreer as a Paladin, you will be given several Paladin class quests. I recomend you to do all of them them, especially the level 12 quest for getting your resurrection spell (surprisingly many paladins don't havet his). I'm not going to give you much information about them, but I will link you to Wowhead's page on paladin's quests. The comments and information over there will help you through!
    Oh! And remember... You don't have to do the long quest chain in order to obtain your Charger mount anymore. You can nowadays immediately learn it from your trainer after you learn your 150 riding skill.


9. Glyph's
Glyph's...? Have a look here.
Click here for a list of Paladin glyphs.
The following glyph's are a good choice for retribution:
Major Glyphs_
Glyph of Judgement
Glyph of Hammer of Wrath

Major Glyphs:
Minor - Glyph of Blessing of Might
Unfortuently there is nothing else currently worth speanding your hard earned gold on. Get on it Blizzard!


10. Addons
PallyPower It provides you with an interactive and easy to use interface that makes it easier for you to manage your blessings (Righteous Fury, Aura, Seal and Blessing) and automatically check for missing buffs. However it's true function lies in being able to control assignments of blessings for you and (if you are a party leader or an assistant) for other paladins in your group or raid.
