A Theorycrafting site, in cooperation with PlusHeal, by Zusterke of the guild Order of the Athanor on EU - Spinebreaker.
Welcome to Zusterke's Corner. The aim of this site is to help you with analyzing stats, items and eventually... raid efficiency. The primary focus of the site is the priest class, though some tools may prove more universal.
22/10/2009. Style change. The site is undergoing a style change and slight resutructuring. Some pages may show the new skin while some may still show the old one. The 'blue' style is the new one, although I'm still considering other options.
Work in progress
- A spell calculator, showing the performance of priest spells depending on build, sp, haste and crit.
- A new regen calculator: simpler and open source.
When it comes to theorycrafting, I always felt there are 3 kind of players:
- Players that are only interested in the results of theorycrafts.
- Players that would like to work things out, but lack either the time or mathematical background to work it all out.
- Players that work it all out, can debate the maths and the results.
While I associate myself with the latter group, most of the time, I often found myself discussing items and stats with players of either the first or second group. As such, I developed this website and these tools:
- It enables me show the results of my theorycrafts.
- It helps me and other players work out some things in a discussion, with the ease and speed of a few clicks. I hope it will sometimes encourage a player to try to work out some things themselves and get them more actively involved in discussions.
- It collects my theorycrafts, with links to their relevant discussions on PlusHeal.
- It allows users to calculate several things, without having to reload the page.
- It allows users to save the HTML page on their own computer, allowing them to work with an offline copy.
- The code is transparent, or open source, allowing other people to maintain this code if they want to.
- There are few requirements server-side, making it easier for other people to host a copy on their own server.
It is not my goal to "host this tools till I'm famous". It is, instead, my goalIf you have trouble working with the code
While this may come as a surprise, there are other terrific sources of priest information on the web. The list is, in fact, endless so I've limited myself to a selection of blogs and communities where theorycrafts or technical aspects of the priests are debated regularly:
- PlusHeal: A friendly healing community. You will find players of all sorts here, from beginners to world leading players. All classes, questions and open discussions are warmly welcomed.
- World of Snarkcraft: a priest blog. It may perhaps prove my favorite priest-centric blog. The ladies there know there stuff, and they'll make sure you know it. I have occasionally been honored with a guest-post there. Expect a mixture of personal, guild related and technical discussions. Occasionally a theorycraft may pop up.
- BobTurkey’s WoW Blog: Bob occasionally offers detailed theorycrafts for priests. His methods differ of mine so this is a good place to go if you want a different view or you're just tired of my shit.
- The Munch Land: One of my preferred technical blogs on priests without the chit chat.
- Tales of a Priest: The blog offers technical, tactical, ui and personal posts. Maintained by world class priests.
- World of Matticus: A great reference among blogs, for all healing classes. The content is guild oriented, sometimes tactical and occasionally technical.
- Duct Tape and a Prayer: A Disc oriented priest blog. Mainstream thinking is often questioned and sometimes countered here.
But don't stop there! There are many other priestly resources out there!
