I’ve seen various blog articles of how to do X Fight as a Y Spec Class. I’ve thought about doing my own, but there’s always that nagging “Really? You need a guide on how to Caster DPS? It’s like…Faceroll on the Keyboard. And sometimes you have to move. /boggle”
(My inner self-defeater is a jerk. :|)
Then there’s the other side of how I convey strats to myself. Everybody likes to do the whole read the ability/debuff/buff verbatim and then maybe the strategy of what to do with it, but mostly it’s a read & hope everyone gets it, especially when being read on Vent.
I really dislike that. I prefer the conceptual explanations and I like them short. I write out flash cards to myself for boss strats. Fit all of one boss on one index card, often on one face of the index card. (Both sides if there’s a pause between phase changes, maybe.) It involves pictures with colored markers and descriptors like ” CRYSTAL = GG WASTE DPS. FLAME = FFS OW.” I’m thoroughly rude to myself on these things, but it gets the point across to myself faster.
So I’m not sure if posting my strats would end up looking very stupid or end up somewhat entertaining. Ditto for what would happen if I included a Paint rendering of my index card along with explanation.
Anyway, it’s an idea floating around. That might happen anyway. (The Paint idea would be fun…)
