Don’t break my Sheep…

“Stop breaking my Sheep” Say the pug mage.

No one is Aoeing  – not even the Warrior Tank.

“Stop breaking my Sheep!”

“Whats your Spell hit?” I ask as we wipe again.

“Thats got nothing to do with sheeping” Pug Mage says.

I armory him..  130 spell hit level@ 80  in a Heroic

” Uh – mate thats why your sheep is breaking..”

“I’ve run this instance heaps of times… ”

I go to check his achievments..

Pug mage leaves the party.

I much prefer losing Dps’s in Pugs – easy to replace as long you can convince the tank and healer that its worth staying the run can still be rescued.

And yes, he goes we get a DK – and we finish the instance

    i didn’t know spell hit has to do with sheep breaking (i’m not a full time mage). i thought if you don’t have enough hit, the mob may have higher chance to resist. learning something new.

      @Gevlon – I know… I know… I should have checked 🙂
      @Thelyse – my understanding of the whole matter as sheeping hit is similar to Shackling is that your spell hit decreases the chance of the target resisting effectively any spell/cc each ‘tick’ I think its three secs.. roll is done whereby your hit( the attacking spells hit) is rolled againts the resist of the target – Its like why some mobs will resist a tick of a dot the mob gets a chance to roll against your stats.. I am so glad computers do that for you.. When I played dnd it will a little frustrating having to stop the action, and do attack rolls and add back your bonuses.. normally took me a little while to remember all my stats so I could do it in my head instead of checking my sheet.

    Evil comment: you could have spared yourself from the wipes if you would Armory him BEFORE the run 🙂

    Hmm I didn’t know that +hit counted on the roll either. I thought it was just factored into whether or not the spell was resisted.

    Spell hit definitely matters when CCing. It’s the reason that shadow priests are always the first priests looked at for shackle’s and mind control, because unlike holy priests, we have spell hit and lots of it. That said, I probably wouldn’t have known that either unless I had played a mage for 2 1/2 years.

    Hope you had a happy new year!

    Yes hit definitely matters! 🙂 I armory people before I invite them to groups, too many wipes have taught me well. 🙂

    I was in a partial PUG earlier today however in my case the weak links those within my guild. Holiterra was kept busy keeping them alive (notes to self never group with them again until they improve their stats.) 😉 I’ve told them nicely that certain heroics they would not be able to do because of their gear. Hopefully they’ll take my advice and make the appropriate improvements.

      I hesitate armorying too many people, just because I don’t want to tell people how to suck eggs.. ( if that expresion makes sence – ) I will start recording damage metres cause I am out dpsing too many classes that should be trumping me..
