    Just a thought… might want to indicate what Seals & Blessings are best for each spec. Similar for stances in Fighters


  3. Uriel cervantes  8 years ago

    is it better too be in a BG with a ret paladin or prot???


  4. jimmy beckner  8 years ago

    my wife and I switched to prot but only want to dps in dungens. A tank asked my wife why she was dpsing as a tank. Should we switch back to ret to be better in dungens? And are we interfering with the tank in the group.


    Dugi Reply:

    If you only like to DPS in dungeons you should switch to Retribution spec but if you want stay as prot you won’t interfere with the main tank if as long you don’t use Righteous Fury, don’t taunt the NPC from the tanks either. Once the tank has agro

    This worked for all classes except Paladin. Its the only one that goes up and not down. I am still out of luck

    My husband had great luck with his rogue


  6. Odile  8 years ago

    My husband a rogue with a PC and I with a paladin on a MAC tried the lowest settings, windowed, non-wide screen in various combinations all to no avail.


    Dugi Reply:

    You have to follow my instructions, you must change your UI SCALE setting found in your Game Menu > Video > Advanced settings

    look at this post for screenshot

    You don’t have to play around with your screen resolution, it should work with any resolution.


  7. Odile  8 years ago

    Changing the screen doesn’t help, Still can only see the RET options in the template


    Dugi Reply:

    it should definately work, set your UI to the lowest possible setting.


  8. Odile  8 years ago

    Thanks I’ll try that


  9. Dugi  8 years ago

    a temporary solution is to lower your UI scale in your Game Menu > Video > Advanced settings.


  10. Odile  8 years ago

    The template on the talented panel is what I couldn’t access


  11. Odile  8 years ago

    I just paid to dual talent specialize and when I try to see the Protection Tree options, I can’t scroll up far enough. Seems to be a glich. Also I can’t move the window


    Dugi Reply:

    Do you mean when using the Talented addon? or just using the default Talent panel?


  12. Josh  8 years ago

    when the new patch came up i set my pally as holy…… one of my fellow guild members think that i should stick with dps since i holy…… should i? it the only thing i good at…… although i am a fairly good healer


  13. Dwkettle  8 years ago

    i wanted to be a retibution non pvp dps player what is the best build for that this is my first guy in wow
    also i would like to beable to kill lage groups for farming im a grand master leather worker. did i chose the right guy for good dps and mass kill such as farming.


    DugisGuide Reply:

    every class should be good for mass kill its just a matter of choosing the talent spec, if you really want to kill mass groups for farming I would recommend using the Prot spec.
