Hm... Maj went ona shopping spree last night... got the season 3 helm, chest and pants. Shes now 4/5 season 3. She also got the season 2 staff and is 1.5 k honor from the season 4 neck.
She'sa all gemmed and enchanted with the exception of the chest. (And the neck when I get it).
My idea... chest has 1 red and 2 yellow. The epic gem vendor has still to pop on my server... (97%). Soa runed crimson spinel.. I got the badgers fer that.
But I freaking hate all the damn yellow gems. Moar resil and sta with steady talasite? Moar crit and spell damage with that noble topaz cut?
I dunno. Frost mages doan need crit that much... I already have too much, and can really use more straight damage. Ima pushin 325 resil... I doan really wanna go much further. 10k health is fine with ice barrier...
And I doan have the badgers to spam haste/damage gems in the slots, which would probably be best... well, I do, but I really want that pvp caster cloak. OTOH... I can probably spare em offa the hunter and shammy... hm... +15 spell haste and +21 spell damage offa all three gems...
Not to mention the nightmare of trying to gear my shammy for pvp resto. good lord.
Anyway.. melvin story. Melvin is, like me, an economist. He researches for a living. (His field is milk... no, really). So we did some 5v5 with his useless feral druid. And after three matches, the druid had racked up 3% of the group damage. WTF? "I tried something different... I just stayed in caster form and cycloned things..."
I checked.. he had zero healing as well.
One time, in band camp... no wait, heroic arc. We wipe three times on the first boss... and he says... "We need more dots!"
"What the hell are you talking about?"
"You know, dots! Damage On Target! Maybe we can get a fire mage!"
Ima goin back to cutting myself while drinking alone...
