Rogue Heroic Dungeon Gear Guide for Cataclysm

Gearing a Rogue in Heroic Dungeons for basic Cataclysm raids is both easy and hard. It's easy because the only competition you'll have for rolls most of the times is a Feral Druid. You'll also get competition from your resident Huntards who'll most likely roll for cape, neck, weapon, trinket, and ring items. But these are very rare as Random Dungeon Finders make sure you'll get into a group where you'll get to roll on gears that are for you.

Tailoring Spreadsheet (Updated for Cataclysm)

Here's a tailoring spreadsheet made for cataclysm. When you download the tailoring spreadsheet you will see a column on the right side highlighted in yellow. Update the prices of the items according to your server. The spreadsheet will automatically calculate if you could profit from crafting an item. Dreamcloths have a price even though it is a BOP because you could be selling your cooldown. Don't put 0 because the cooldown does have a price. Some people do buy other tailor's dreamcloth cooldowns. Also, instead of using the price of bolt of embersilk, I used the price of embersilk cloth in the equation. Making your own bolts is a lot cheaper than buying the bolts directly from the Auction House.

Alchemy Spreadsheet Cataclysm

It is here! An alchemy spreadsheet updated for Cataclysm items. Listed here are the items that are commonly bought. Elixirs are not included because its effects wears off upon death and is a waste of money. When you download the alchemy spreadsheet, there will be a list of items on the right side. Only change the values that are in yellow highlight. It will automatically calculate for you how much you can profit from creating an item. Procs are not counted in the profit. If there's anything wrong with the formula, please let us know!

Fishing Away

Dear Blizzard,

I’ve been through it all from leveling up multiple characters to 80 to spending hours wiping in the original Molten Core all the way through the Ice Crown Citadel. I’ve gotten every profession to the max level and every secondary profession to the max level that is … except for Fishing.

I pull out my raggedy old umbrella at the beach and relax, telling myself that I will finish getting my fishing skill up. As I begin to fish, I click on the bobber when it moves and loot my Longjaw Mud Snapper. I do this again, and again, and again. Eleven times I loot the Longjaw Mud Snappers as I watch my skill go up …by 1. By the time I’ve looted a couple more fish I have had it. I’m done! What am I doing sitting here wasting my time?

That was until Cataclysm was released.

Thank You Blizzard for fixing fishing. I’m so very glad you made Fishing so rewarding, so entertaining. It makes the game for me. With Cataclysm's release I saw that you changed the icon that you click the bobber with. What an addition! That was the key … the secret to making fishing fun!

After 6 years of creating and maintaining the status of the most successful MMO, I’m very glad that you figured out how to make fishing enjoyable. Most importantly, I think you really tackled the issue of leveling up so its not extremely tedious.

To the Blizzard employee who made this addition, kudos to you. I hope you got a promotion, because you Sir, are one of a kind.

The guy who hates fishing but continues to do it anyways
