Attention: Gar UI Users

Gar UI

I just wanted to make a quick post letting you know that my UI compilation appears to be working fine after 4.1. MikScrollingBattleText seemed to be the only addon throwing back the occasional pesky error, so I just disabled it for now. There is a fan update for MSBT if you can’t live without it, but I’m going to turn it off for the time being and wait for a developer update.

For those of you new to the compilation who may be having some trouble installing it…

  • Make sure you update all of the addons before attempting to use it with Patch 4.1. The package hasn’t been updated for some time, so it’s very necessary to obtain all of the most recent addon updates before trying to get it installed.
  • Make things easy on yourself, and use an addon updating client such as the one from Curse, or the MMOUI Minion from WoWinterface (I use both).
  • Be sure to check “Load Out of Date Add Ons” on the Add Ons screen prior to logging in.

I’ll try to release an updated version of it sometime soon, but it’s likely that I’ll be playing with things a bit in the next week or two. I doubt I’ll make any big changes to it, but I may perform a couple of slight adjustments here and there. At any rate, I wouldn’t expect to see an updated package until sometime after mid-May.

My Survival Guide to Surviving in PvP as a Survival Hunter: Part Two

Welcome to part two of my Survival Hunter PvP guide. The purpose of this two part post is to offer up some basic tips and suggestions for those new to Survival Huntering, a quick-start-guide if you will. After a lengthy career as primarily a BM PvP Hunter, I’ve made the transition to Survival pretty easily, and I’m here to help you do so as well.

In part one I covered my talent build, pet choice & pet spec, glyphs, enchants and gear itemization. The purpose of that post was to offer a brief overview of the spec and to help better optimize your toon for success in BGs or arena.

In part two, my goal is to provide you with a few tips and pointers on getting the most out of your new build and play style. This post will not be an all encompassing guide on “How to Own as a Survival Hunter”, but more of a primer to get you up and running. In this part of the guide, I’ll give you an overview of the basic PvP shot selection, Survival Hunter mechanics, as well as show you some useful addons and macros.

My New UI

…is coming along nicely, but not quite ready for prime time just yet. It’s a full rebuild from the ground-up, so it may be another couple of days before I’m able to present it to you folks. I took it for a test drive into a few battlegrounds last night, mainly to get Grid configured. For the life of me, …

The Garwulf UI

For nearly two years I played World of Warcraft with absolutely no addons. I was a purist you might say. Once I began raiding however, my guild required me to have a threat meter and boss encounter alerts. Since I then had to install those essential 3rd party addons, I decided to see what else was out there. To make …
