Thread: Pre-pots

  1. #1

    Pre-pots

    I usually don't complain about quality of life issues in wow because it seems kinda silly, but why on earth does pre-potting still shift you out of stealth? I've posted in the official forums about this and I've seen in the past where developers have said that it wouldn't effect gameplay and that its a valid concern that can easily be addressed. I see zero downside to making this change and I don't forsee that it would give some sort of unfair advantage in PVP. If you agree that this is a change that should be implemented, please rally forth my fellow rogue's and address the issue. Maybe if we squeak enough, we'll get some grease.

    Why does starting to eat stops your stealth, but eating does not?

    OT: I feel the same way with feral druids.

    There was a pull last week where I pre-potted, stealthed, the character THEN drank his potion pulling me out of stealth and by the time I realized that I wasn't in stealth was when the boss hit me for 640k (gogo710khp). Reason is, I shadowstep at 1-0.5s remaining on the pull timer because we have some early pulls sometimes...good ole Army.

    Its not only prepotting, its any pot including health pots. I suppose it would affect PvP. Except in arena and rated you could just macro your pot with Ambush and do bigger burst.

    No you cannot use potions in rated BG and arena.

    You could do the same thing in Cata by spec'ing sub to get your combo points and respec and keep them.

    You could also vendetta a target, change spec and it would still be up without pulling.

    You can use it instead of your current potion button.

    False.

    Macro this:

    #showtooltip Virmen's Bite
    /use Virmen's Bite
    /cast Stealth

    Keybind it as your pot. When you use it to prepot it will work. If you use it to pot during the fight the stealth part will not trigger since you are unable to stealth during the fight.

    Thanks for the idea, I will use this on my rogue alt.
