  Regarding ban policies
Posted by: momwf - 10-21-2021, 02:39 PM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (2)

Hello retro-wow, I`m making this topic in the idea that maybe the player base can share its opinion on the ban policies of the server.
Long story short, if you browse through the ban section appeal, you will notice a lot (roughly all?) of the ban appeals being denied, unless its been some autoban for login etc.
The idea is, this is a video game played mostly by young people and young people do mistakes more often. They rage in battlegrounds and say or do things that they regret later on.
I think , unless a person has used hacks , no ban should be permanent. In my case I have bough some gold from third websites not knowing its illegal and when I found out, it was too late. Its been 2 years+ since and my acc is still perma banned. Which is fine, however, in my shoes are a lot of players who put a lot of time into their characters ...and for one mistake or another, received a perma ban and even when they appeal after years, they are still being denied access to their characters.

The server lacks people, I logged in and there were around 100 to 150 people in the evening. Just one battleground happening and zero pve. Wouldnt it be more beneficial to the server to offer those asking for forgiveness, to get a second chance?

What's new today in online dating? I see more and more sites, but I also understand that not all of them are reliable. Are there platforms for non-standard dating, for some new experiences?

  Ban appeal after two years
Posted by: mrdot - 10-18-2021, 01:03 AM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (1)

Hello retro-wow, my account Sommerset1 , was banned around two years ago for gold buying. To my defense I was new to private server wow scene and joined Retro-Wow to experience the hype before the release of official servers. Later whilst playing the game I understood that gold buying was illegal.
I am here asking if I can have a second chance? It has been a long time and needless to say I have learned my lesson. Thank you for reading!

Melee Hunter Guide - Physical DPS Hunter Melee
I'm Caperfin. Got questions? see my Livestream: www.twitch.tv/caperfin
[Image: q.png]

Intro

Originally, hunters were designed to be played as a ranged class and the legitimacy of a hunter in the melee role was rarely considered. However, with a game that has been dissected for over a decade this dated notion has now been disregarded. It's crucial to remember your melee journey demands a large amount of effort for players to recognise. Painting yourself in the most positive light possible will have lasting results. See Video to learn more.


Being attentive and well mannered will have positive ripple effects later on. You want as much working for you as possible. If done properly, you’ll be known as not only a skilled Hunter but a proficient Melee Hunter who goes above and beyond expectations.





[Image: rg_race.png]
The Horde faction is incomparably better than the Alliance mostly due to Windfury Totem which contributes greatly to our damage. The Horde faction will be our focus. Sadly, Tauren don't have any racial damage benefits. Troll have Berserking and excel on ~45 seconds fights & Orc have Blood Fury excelling on longer fights.




Pets
A pet contributes a decent amount to our general damage. But, if you don’t cater to the survival of a pet it will be a detriment to your DPS. Therefore, it’s not only advised to move out of the “giant fire” on the ground but also manage the position of a pet. Those who master this notion, should consider investing into buffs for their pet. In terms of damage, the pet family: "Cat", come in first place but more specifically Broken Tooth who has a unique 1.0 second attack speed.




[Image: rg_professions.png]
Engineering for: Gnomish Battle Chicken, Goblin Sapper Charge, Goblin Jumper Cables XL among many other items. As a second profession, pick an easy or high gold generating one, this helps you buy powerful potions.




[Image: eq.png]
There's a max of 32 Buffs, avoid nearing the max as it may result in Buffs getting mistakenly removed, the addon: Buff Cap Tracker helps. Use Buff Cap Calc to see what Buffs stack. Being in melee leads to a higher chance of dying, so get a few Buffs to bolster your survival. A max of 16 Debuffs can be on a mob, Faerie Fire and other armor reducing debuffs are the most influential.




Phantom of the Wing Clip
The basic spell Wing Clip performs a “Phantom Strike”, which causes a melee swing but no actual damage is dealt but it will still trigger effects that require a melee swing to activate, ex: Windfury Totem, Dragonbreath Chili among others.




[Image: fwq.png]
We gear similarly to a traditional ranged hunter. It’s possible to play as a ranged hunter and get Melee Hunter gear without anyone noticing. Here's an example of a Melee Hunter gear set in Phase5. General Stat Priority: Dual-Wield Melee Hit Cap (12%) > Agility > Strength/Attack Power > Intellect.

Enchants are tailored the same way as the gearing process. See the list of Enchants to learn more.




[Image: rg_talents.png]
  • Short Fights: (31/0/21) Mostly for ~2min fights. It's crucial to keep you pet alive for as long as possible. If this is not feasible, consider the next setup.
  • Support: (0/31/20) Typically, this setup is for a guild’s progression through a raid. You will likely be put in a group with damage dealing Warriors. You might also be asked to equip Nightfall for the first ~30 seconds of a fight.
  • Anti-Pet Fights/Long Fights: (21/0/30) The setup solution for a pet dying for whatever reason and +2min fights. But requires gear from AQ to unlock its potential. Also, ideal for fights where keeping a distance is sometimes necessary.




[Image: tg_rotations.png]
  1. Pre Pull: Before the fight starts, make sure you and your pet get the most buffs out there in the world. Buffs will slowly start to countdown, so be sure to Log Out to keep their duration and log back into the game when the raid is ready. In terms of Hunter Aspects, use Aspect of the Monkey, if the fight has moments when you cannot go in melee than instead use Aspect of the Hawk. If the fight requires attacking targets that have distance between each other use Aspect of the Cheetah to reach the next target faster.
  2. Pulling: Summon your pet and ask the Raid for the few remaining buffs.
    • Pulling-Situational: If it’s required to keep a distance for a few seconds either at the start or later in a fight, equip Primal Blessing and Hurricane, cast Rapid Fire and get as many ranged auto-attacks out as possible before being allowed to go into melee. Once you get the Primal Blessing buff, equip all your normal gear and head towards the target.
  3. Combat: Run towards the mob, use Arcane Shot, use Raptor Strike while pressing Wing Clip. Once you reach the mob, use a trinket, ex: Earthstrike. Spam WG until RS comes of cooldown. Continuously repeat the WG and RS process.
    • Combat-Situational: If you accidentally Aggro a target and it’s about to attack you. Use the talent spell Deterrence to enable the possibility to Mongoose Bite, after use Limited Invulnerability Potion (cancels Aggro), after help the tank reposition the mob and go behind its back.
