    And on that note, since around cata I've had the addon jumper and I am currently on 138k jumps on my caster main, and my melee chars are not far behind, and closing in fast due to my constant jumping on fights
    It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

    Well in PVP some people weave in and out of your toon to screw up your facing (which is lame really, makes you wish WoW had hit detection). But I've seen it in PVE too, people just randomly strafing back and forth or spamming jump for no reason at all.

    I really started to notice it doing HoT in Cata. Trying to use the melee and tanks to los the silence from the rogue boss... so annoying. STAND STILL YOU HYPERACTIVE JERKS!!!

    In some fights there is movement debuff that decreases as you move around, and jumping works also. As a melee I rather spam spacebar to jump with my thumb, so I can focus using my abilities with no problems. If I'd have to use A and D it would not only use up two of my ability using fingers, it would also be a risk of mispositioning. (Nexus last boss, Stormstout brewery last boss etc.)

    If you run behind your target, while hes casting, the spell will be canceld, and as other said, you cannot dodge/parry from behind

    Shouldn't you at least move a little randomly?
    Oh yeah, you definitely make the movement appear random. Circle some, strafe some, etc. Hard to explain, but if you do it enough you just kind of know what to do and when to move a certain way. It may look stupid but it will increase your effectiveness by a lot against players.

    Err.. that changes your facing. Strafing is far superior to this.


    If you seriously don't get this, then assume you want to remain facing a warrior you are south of while moving such that you are east of him. You will want to strafe to maintain your facing such that you can continue to dodge and parry.


    Literally everyone strafes. It is correct play. Facing is very important.

    It's to get as many shots in the back as possible. Did somebody already say that? =p

    you base this on what?

    Besides giving me something to do while I do my deeps, to get behind casters. It's hard for them to complete a spell when you move behind them all of a sudden.

    I've read that some pvp pro's only use their mouse for movement, using the movement keys for different macro's that arent for movement.

    In my guild we refer to it as "the pvp shuffle" Usually employed by people who are jumping through casters and weaving to around the spell casts. But what's hilarious is all the idiots who do it for no reason, badly, with no point to it. They obviously are mimicking the pvpers but don't know why it's done. Can't tell you how many times I've seen a rogue just strafe left right left right completely behind a boss for no reason, it dodges nothing. Just makes me think you are an idiot doing that really, imitating something from pvp into pve with no reason for it or proper execution.

    Had a hunter before that "rp-ed" quite a bit midfight in ICC, he would shoot a bit then leap backwards, shoot, leap to the side, like he was in an action movie. Trouble is he had an aspect on that increased damage when you stood still so..

    That means to kite they have to do the jump-180-action-180 method of kiting mentioned above, I've never seen that done instead of strafing at high rating. You cannot circle around a target using just the mouse - I know people who unbind S and even W, but never unbind strafe.

    From the player that never ever used the space bar.

    9 out of 10 times they are just doing it to taunt you. Most of the time its really just to piss you off as going backa and forth doesn't get you behind any target, but it will get you into thier head and piss them off and cause them to fuck up.

    Before I stopped playing I had got away from doing this and just got on to my targets back as I could. It is funny as hell to see something jerking around then whiff a kidney in your face. A good thing to note is if they are moving around and just doing it b/c they have ADHD or some other reason, it makes it really easy for you to get on thier back pretty much whenever you want and you can pretty much juke them anytime you need to also. Soo most of the time this kinda shit wont get you anymore dmg, or less dmg taken. Unless you're doing it correctly(not just moving around random)

    I think people are confusing people strafing to stay on target and those who s key back and forth on you for literally no reason, like say when you are stunned
