    For New and Old Raiders Looking to Up Their Game!

    I first posted this in my new guilds forum which has a couple of raiders who are for the first time in a progression guild. With Cataclysm bringing a fresh start you may find yourself in this position to, but that's not to say these 3 simple things won't up your game either!

    First off RAWR is officially working for Cata, use it to talent, gem, enchant your gear for max dps hps tps ttl etc as well as building a wishlist of gear (you may find some blues are better than raid gear so could possibly pass them for shards! Especially trinkets!). If you've ever heard of min/max-ing this is what you do it with, make sure you edit the buffs to represent what you'll be using in your raids though, otherwise it will spurn out completely wrong stuff. Also to mention is for Tanks, edit what you prioritise most, whether thats TTL (time to live), TPS (threat per second) or Avoidance, if you're OT remember to go for expertise cap over avoidance as you're going to want to be able to overcome the MTs threat when its time to switch

    Anyone needing help with RAWR just ask in these forums, lots of people use it here i'm sure and can help you!

    Secondly if you're experiencing latency 200-300 ms you can bring it right down with this:

    Its basically imba and everyone should do it, for those interested it increases the rate of packages sent between you and the WoW servers!

    Lastly is a little addon that can take a bit of getting used to:

    Configures keybinds to activate when they're pressed rather than released.We found this useful on Artamedes in BWD, keybind interact to hit gongs, quicker reactions = less deaths!

    So there you go, might be an interesting read, might be useless to you.

    Edit - If anyone else has any others feel free to post! Disregard DBM and Omen etc, people should have them already!
