View Full Forums : Please tell me I'm not the only one

There we were, going into Kara for some gear and badges. We've cleared up to prince the previous week, and we can clear up to curator with minimal problems.

I'm sitting there tanking Midnight, everything is going well. He's about half health and I see my Faerie Fire is about to tick off. Now I don't have a fancy macro or it set up on the normal action bar, I have both of them set up on the right side of the screen for easy clicking as I don't use them all too often. I go to click it and I hit the normal faerie fire instead of the feral one.

/target stupid druid

I pop out into caster form and that horse hits me in places I'd rather not mention. Thank god our healers and warrior step up and finish him off quick and then down Attumen. I get my badge and my tail between my legs, vowing never to do that again ; )

"/console autounshift 0" will revert things back to the way it was. :)

I've wiped entire raids before so I wouldn't worry about it :> It happens to us all, sometimes.

Yeah, it's funny when I hit myself with a rejuv as we're about to pull and i press the shift button to go into bear form, don't realize I have a global cooldown still going and hit wrath instead... (wrath in my caster form is in the same spot as my mangle)

and then stand there stupidly wondering what's wrong...

I've had this happen tons of times and usually people are quite forgiving and enjoy the good laugh.

I click some of my spells and in arena's have wasted cooldowns on Tranquility while trying to buff up =(

My guildmates are never going to let me forget either :redface: Oh well, it's all in good fun.

Kind of like innervating the tank instead of yourself, eh? I never have the tank targeted on fights, and always replied on clicking the spell and clicking who it goes to. Back in the day, I've innervated the tank the few rare occations I had him targeted.

These days, never more. Right click == self. Being Resto, I get no griefs for keeping Innervate to myself. ;)

never give innervate to pallies and shammies anymore imo. They only get back 2k mana whereas a t4 druid and priest will get back 8kmana.

yep did the same but luckily was only helping out some people in Nagrand tanking Durn for them...

i suspect nevetheless they did wonder why the tank suddenly decided to shift out to caster form in the middle of the fight

Last week I innervated myself instead of the priest when were killing Malacrass, it was awesome. I haven't actually done that screw up in a while, haha.

And about faerie fire/feral faerie fire, what I did was combine the two into 1 button using a macro. Basically when I'm in caster form it'll cast the caster form one, when I'm in cat/bear it'll cast the feral version. Works lovely, one of the few macros I've come to love (also use similar macros for prowl/shadowmend, then ones for ravage/shred and pounce/cower based on whether I'm stealthed or not).

Stupid things happen to all of us.

Last week my guild wanted a speedrun SSC in one night (yes we are normaly not that fast :-( )
and it all worked great.
Killed Hydross, Lurker, Leo, Karathress and then got to Tidewalker. Time was short cause we need 2-3 tries on Vashj to down her. So Tide has to fall on first try.
Everything works great and there comes the last murloc-groups.
I watch my parties hp-bars and think...hmmm lets Tranq.
Skilled 1 day before to a pvp built and dont have the aggro-reduce on Tranq skilled.
So the murlocs think "Let's chop some wood"....all ranged were next :grin:

Raid wiped, vashj wasnt downed cause ppl had to go ....
And poor druidserg was slapped by the raid-leaders :nono:

S h i t happens!
