Low Tech Raiding


This is the visual I used during hardmode Sindragosa to ensure I placed my beacon properly. Actually, it was originally just quickly scribbled in pencil 10 seconds before the first pull as the heal lead whispered me instructions, as everyone else had downed her before and I was the new kid, expected to kill someone with an ice block or do something else stupid.

For the record, we one shot her and I didn't die until the very end due to too many stacks (it was the last-few-HP-push and I was out of ice blocks to duck behind). Literally, I died then she died. /preen

So, what about you guys? What's your "low tech" raiding gear look like?

I found an old, old post-it note in a box that had heal ranks written down on it for my priest. Remember down-ranking? Ahh the good old days.

Postit note with a big red "+" on my screen to know which side to stand during phase 2 of thadius to avoid wiping half the raid.

My guild always used the same side, but was quite handy while puging with my several alts.

I think the postit is still somewhere on my desk :)

I have a 3x5 card with my VuhDo mouse binds on it. I had another one for Thadius, just like Boats. :-)

I use the default UI... is that "low tech" enough? :)

I use post-it-notes all the time.

I use sticky notes to arrange healers on complex fights. The snapshot I'm linking is to a Hydross fight, but I still do the same thing whenever we have more to do than "You 2 on tanks, rest on raid".

The heal lead's desk... a Real Life UI. >.>

@Dorgol: Yes, imo.

---------- Thadius ++++++++++

on the top of my screen!

If people have problems with Sindragosa, we often suggest to people to actually put postits on the monitor with those symbols.

I have a sheet of paper next to my keyboard that show which spells are bound to what in grid/clique.

I used red and blue post-its around the edges of my monitor both in Naxx 40 and Naxx 25 to remember my respective guild(s) individual strategies for Thaddius :D.
