Ruby Sanctum Hunter Loot Preview

Ruby Sanctum Hunter Loot

06/24/10 – Ruby Sanctum Loot Table Update: Post updated with announced heroic loot. Scroll down to see the goodness. 🙂

Here’s a look at some of the hunter loot that will be dropping in Ruby Sanctum. Although patch 3.3.5 is scheduled to go live this week, Ruby Sanctum is not. The instance will be included in the patch, but it won’t be available until a later date. Blizzard is delaying the release of Patch 3.3.5 outside of North America, which means they won’t be allowing access to the instance until all realms worldwide are ready to go live with it.

Anyway, here’s a look at some of the sweet hunter loot dropping soon in a Ruby Sanctum near you…

Returning Footfalls (Boots)

Returning Footfalls Hunter Boots

These boots are basically Rock-Steady Treads V. 2.0. For those of you who can’t afford to craft the aforementioned boots, well… you’re in luck because these are free, provided you’re lucky enough to win the roll. 😉

The itemization is practically identical to that of the Rock-Steady treads, but just a little bit better. Also, you get a yellow socket in these bad boys, in place of the blue one on the Rock-Steady Treads. All in all, a slightly better pair of kicks.

Targeting Macros for ICC

The following entry is a reader submitted article sent in by PingHansen. I don’t use targeting macros all that often, but I felt that this post would be of value to many of my readers out there. Well done Ping!

Sussisane, Night Elf HunterRaiding ICC can be a bit overwhelming at times. In order to cut down on the number of things we hunters (and other ranged DPS) have to handle simultaneously, I have put together a set of targeting macros that handles the targeting priority for us. The emphasis is on the hunter perspective, but they should work for any ranged DPS. I have found that the use of macros for targeting has improved my reaction time significantly. But don’t rely too heavily on the macros – there may be situations that are best handled the old fashioned way, aka manual targeting.

In order to keep the macros simple, most of the macros below rely on setting the tank as your focus. The focus can easily be changed during the encounters, if necessary. This also works hand-in-hand when misdirecting to the tank. See the tools for that at the end of this article.

And now for the targeting macros…

Anariell returns

Anariell, Blood Elf HunterThe cat came back….

Well, not really…but in a way? Yes…

But we’ll get to that in a moment.

After a series of unfortunate events I was left without WoW for a good…oh, three months. Yeah, heart breaking I know. I bet you feel my pain.

It wasn’t just that though… As well as having a laptop up and die on me after only having it for 6 months, which by the way…was downright depressing, I also moved. Now when I say moved, I don’t mean like a couple hours or even a state away… I made a HUGE move. I moved to Australia. Been happily living in the Land Down Under for a month now and still going.

Three months without WoW left me rather far behind, and cost me my spot within my rather large and rapidly progressing raiding guild. Worst part is, the GM wouldn’t listen to why I was gone and refused to take me back into the guild. So over the next short span…I did some guild hopping and was rather dismayed by the lack of “raiding” guilds on my server.

We’ll go back to this one later…or I am just going to go on a rant that ends up with a bunch of $^&$%$*&^% all across the screen, and really…I just don’t need that right about now. I have an image to uphold.

Even if it’s a bit fuzzy :/
