So yesterday I wrote about the virtues of learning to play, and how developing some skill can help overcome deficiencies in gear. I still believe in this, however when I logged into the game yesterday, I happened to fly over a lake and saw some little yellow dots on my mini-map. Fish schools! Oh snap.
The last thing I did yesterday before logging was raid. So that means when I was in Survival mode I did not have my tracking properly set and I was undercutting my dps by 5%. When I switched to Marksman not only was I undercutting my dps by 5%, I was undercutting my attack power by 10% because I forgot to use Trueshot Aura.
I’ve setup a power aura to alert me when I don’t have Trueshot Aura on, and I’ve got a post-it note on my monitor to remind me about the tracking (I haven’t figured out how to get PowerAuras to handle that).
