Videos of My First Group Experience with Lua

As I mentioned yesterday, I ran my first group content recently since the free to play launch so this was really my first chance to get a feel for how Lua would work for me.  And I do have to save I’m loving it :)  It wasn’t a completely stressful case as we didn’t have a Captain, but having an RK as the healer was a pretty good case as they have a number of buffs and HoTs they’ll stack.  Overall it was a blast and one of the smoother runs I’ve had in Sammuth Gul (SG) that I can remember, possibly having tons of interrupts was the key :)

One thing I’ll point out about Lua is that I personally find it very useful and enjoy getting it set up, but I’m sure there are others who don’t like it or don’t want to deal with it.  I’m also sure there are some who thing the in-game displays are better and can’t stand the way the Lua scripts display the information.  What’ I’m getting at is I’m happy we now have more choices in how our user interface looks such that we can better customize it for our preferences and play-styles.

Anyway, on to the videos and I did comment these as well – feel free to let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions.  And so you know, before we started the other Warden and I /rolled to see who would tank, I lost but actually had fun off-tanking.

Fixed the embeding, but the links are below in case you prefer them.

    I have been loving using Palantir and Buffbars. I love the ability to see what de-buffs are on me and if they are bad enough to warrant using a pot or just wait them out. In my opinion they have been a fantastic addition to the game.

      For me it is the ability to better see things without having to hover over them as one of the issues I run into sometimes is losing my mouse on the screen :)

      I did that on purpose just to show the effect ;) It actually was the gambit pop-up over my head that covered it initially as I just didn’t have my camera at the right angle.

      :) well it almost kinda worked.

      Hopefully it sounds as though things are moving on the EU side of things, it is really unfortunate that this has happened to such a large and enjoyable portion of the player base.

    Just an observation:

    The middle of your screen looks so cluttered! Most probably due to that HUD. I used to use a similar design HUD in WOW as well but abandoned it shortly after. It made visibility of the battlefield worse for me, not better.

      I realize its a bit cluttered but so far it seems to work best such that I can keep track of the important parts of the fight.
