Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); OmniCC

[Jan 25, 2013 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

OmniCC is an addon that adds text to items, spell and abilities that are on cooldown to indicate when they will be ready to use. In other words: it turns all the standard analogue cooldowns into digital ones.

Anything should work with OmniCC, from the action bars to the inventory, from the standard interface to your favorite add-on. This add-on will let you see at a …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); Essential Add-ons

[Jan 9, 2013 | One Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

This is the first segment to be recorded for 2013, and I thought I’d make it longer than usual, and list the add-ons that I consider essential.

For everyone, I recommend ArkInventory, AutoProfitX2, and BankStack. These three add-ons will help you keep your bags and bank organized, and turn junk items into a little jingle in your pockets. If your toon uses the …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 17; AttackNearestEnemy

[Oct 31, 2012 | 3 Comments] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium. Stay awhile, and listen!

This segment is about an unusual add-on; one that you may use once and then uninstall, and still continue to benefit ffrom what it does.

AttackNearestEnemy creates a macro the first time you log onto a toon. The macro is tuned (no pun intended) to the character class of that toon, and placed in the macro section for that specific character. Once …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 15; Decursive

[Oct 27, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

This is The Icesnake. Perhaps you are not prepared; but you could be! The Emporium is here to help.

Mages, Monks, Shaman, Priests, Paladins… Decursive supports all classes with cleansing abilities and configures itself automatically, it works straight out of the box, no configuration is required.

Decursive is an add-on that places a small bar on your play window which, when your ability is active, allows you to quickly remove debuffs from members of your …

Icesnake’s Add-On Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 2; Healers Have To Die

[Sep 7, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

This is Icesnake Frostfyre, “The” Icesnake, back with another 5.0.4 segment.

In this segment we’re looking at an add-on that’s a must-have for PvP, called “Healers Have To Die.” In its simplest use, when you are in a Battleground orother PvP situation, “Healers Have To Die” (henceforth calle “HHTD”) will place a large red cross over the head of enemy healers, much like raid target markers; but HHTD does this automatically, and only for players …

Today, I’m going to give you a simple way to improve your play in every aspect of the game; especially when it comes to being effective in …

Why Tol Barad Doesn’t Suck

[Jan 18, 2011 | 4 Comments] by: Chris Stewart

Tol Barad has been a hot topic since Cataclysm released in early December. Since the start we’ve seen countless articles written over it’s imbalance and players sharing their discontent for the new zone. I’d like to tell you why Tol Barad doesn’t suck, and quite frankly, why I think it’s a fantastic zone for exciting PvP.

I spend a lot of my time in the game participating in PvP, whether through battlegrounds, arenas, Tol Barad, …

The Rated Battlegrounds FAQ

[Nov 18, 2010 | No Comment] by: Jason Zimmerman

Blizzard has released a blue post giving us everything we wanted to know about Rated Battlegrounds. Well, everything they think we need to know about Rated Battlegrounds, because someone somewhere is cooking up an obscure question for the forums at this very moment.

For me personally I am really excited about the Rated Battlegrounds. I enjoy the experience of PvP battles with objectives more than the arena experience where you see who can kill the …

Twinkies: The Kind That Kill You

[Jun 26, 2009 | No Comment] by: Jason Griffith

No, not those twinkies. These Twinkies!
I haven’t had a lot to say on the blog lately because rather than being focused on leveling my characters, I’ve been focused on leveling and gearing new and existing characters to do a little twinking in battle grounds.
Since the paladin that I blogged about for so long is [...]

New World of Warcraft Battleground: The Isle of Conquest

[Jun 16, 2009 | 2 Comments] by:

As someone who really enjoys PvP I am pretty excited about the new BG that is coming in patch 3.2 called The Isle of Conquest. It seems like they are taking the things we enjoy about Wintergrasp, (large scale battle, with siege workshops etc) and turning it into a battleground. I for one am really looking forward to this. Here are a few of the details from the official WoW site.
