Nefarian Heroic World First Kill by Paragon
Paragon defeated Nefarian in Heroic mode a few hours ago and was the first guild in the world to achieve that! Congratulations to them for spending so much time and fur shampoo on that kill!



Addon Review - Archaeology Helper (by chaud)
Archaeology Helper is the perfect compliment to Archy. It enables nodes to be displayed on a HUD using GatherMate2. You need both addons enabled to fully utilize ARH.

After installing the addons, you will first notice the addon toolbar that appears in the center of your screen. Click and drag anywhere on it that is not a button to reposition it. Mousing over each button or area will tell you what it does. Using ARH is simple, just survey and select the color you got after aiming your character in the same direction as the telescope is pointing. You can either use the buttons on the included toolbar or bind keys in the settings. Making sure not to move until after marking is important to increase the accuracy of the overlay zones.

Generally the fastest way to clear a digsite is starting at a randomly selected node on the off chance that you actually pick the right one. The fragment is very rarely on the red line when surveying, so pick a side close to where the red area starts and check for that fragment. When looking at the HUD, the red circle surrounding your player arrow shows approximately how far out you can find an object, make sure to stand on the center of known nodes as they are not positioned perfectly.

Here is a database that is more complete than any other I have found that includes data from Archy, GatherMate2Data, other people, and my own digging, it is still missing a few nodes from higher level Archaeology, so don't be surprised when you find one that isn't included by default. If you are running Archy alongside ARH, make sure to submit your Archy.lua file from SavedVariables to the author's website (after he fixes it) to increase the nodes in the database!

Below you can see the HUD overlay during a normal survey and an example three red survey results that lead directly to your fragment.

    Your rage is astounding. A lot of people haven't had any issues with the addon, perhaps you have an addon conflicting with it? Calm down before you hurt yourself or others.

    He probably didn't use it right or something. I introduced the addon to a few guildies, one of them said it's completely shit...but my former experience with him is, he ain't to smart IRL, probably what failed.

    I've used it for couple of hours, and estimating, I do about 2.3 surveys/dig now, compared to 4.5 earlier. That's ALOT less time used for archaeology.
    ANY archaeologist GOT to have these addons.... (I've done 20k+ fragments before this addon, so I know what I speak about).

    World firsts are different I know, I still don't like that they circumvent aspects of the fight by stacking one type of class. It makes it feel cheap or somewhat lessened from what a true world first should be.

    Look at it this way, blizzard makes them game monotonous, grinding and extremely difficult so that the average joe can not play the game. What happens? profits drop, less development, less designers, game changes less and has less patches(IE content) and therefor goes stagnant, that is the end of the game. I'm sure some over zealous fanboi will jump on me that wow CAN'T die but i assure you it can. Blizzard knows they have to keep their income up and they need to keep their players happy and the MAJORITY of players are more interested in it being balanced at the level of an average player than want either extremes.

    Nice addon, but that doesn't change the fact that Arch is the worst thing ever created by Blizzard.

    It doesn't matter why Paragon used 11 druids, it matters because they SUCCEEDED doing it.
    Blizzard will notice this and they will nerf druids because of it, as it will result in other guilds using the same strategy.
    Paragon used a strategy that Blizzard never thought of, this is verboten and must be stopped.(Blizzard Ideology)

    We really did have 11 druids. All their armorys have been linked to this very thread where you can see that all of them have the achievement.

    Gotta love that first kills are no longer about skill and coordination in beating the fight, but just who can cheese the mechanics better via class stacking.

    Do you mind explaining the tactic you guys used to down him? I'm sure an explanation would help a lot with all of the Druid confusion going on here.

    Paragon 1: God, fuck Crackle.
    Paragon 2: I know man, but what are we supposed to do about it?
    Paragon 1: You know what? Druids.
    Paragon 2: What?
    Paragon 1: Druids, get all the fuckin druids in vent right now. Tranquility time.
    Paragon 2: Thats just crazy enough to work...

    WORLD FIRST

    pretty ingenious if you ask me

    and for the rest of you qqing about "bring the player not the blah blah" or whatever, thats for the rest of us, when we're epic'd out after a couple months of farming. world first is a race to see who can get it done fastest by whatever means necessary, for nef that means druid stacking. get over it, it isnt like you were thiiisss close to world first yourself.

    Where do you import that database on the front page to? I imported it into gathermate2 and there were no nodes that popped up.

    They got 11 druids for rooting all the 10 adds in the last phase.

    Clearly you have some unresolved issues with Blizzard? You're clearly not seeing point, and if you are, you don't understand it. My only point is druids can fill any role making the use of more druids easily understandable.

    I don't care what your issue is, it has nothing to do with my point. Stacking 11 druids of different specs is different than stacking even 11 paladins because of their role abilities.

    I agree with him, though. Nobody cares about the beliefs of self-righteous people who try to shove down their beliefs on what is honorable or cheesy in a videogame down people's throats like a bunch of door-to-door preachers on crack. It's just annoying.
