Melee damage dealers have a reputation for living life flat on their backs, and it's become a primary concern of mine to practice not dying in instances. In the vein of that thought process, I wrote a post on basics for staying alive as a Feral Cat Druid, and figured it's a topic that applies to more than just my fuzzy brethren and myself.

I'm not posting it right away (because I just put up a post, and I'm trying really hard not to burst-post anymore), but in the intervening time I thought I'd pose the concept for everyone else:

Death Knights, Feral Druids, Ret Paladins, Rogues, Enhancement Shaman and Fury/Arms Warriors, how do you keep your Melee DPS up and kicking for the entire fight? Gear, talents, tactics, etc. If you don't, what frustrations of your class make it such a painful challenge, and what do you do to extend your up time or make it count?

Sar's edit: feel free to adapt this Shared Topic in some way if you play a class or spec which isn't Melee DPS... otherwise we would be excluding a lot of bloggers!!

*blush* Hehe, whoops. I hadn't really thought of it as the "topic of the week" type shared topic, or I'd have thought of something somewhat more universally applicable. I was not thinking that far ahead. ^_^;

Anyham, my post be here: http://morebarsthanyou.skipcocoa.net/20 ... iving-pve/

Actually, I was just going to turn it into a post intended as humor (I'm a warlock blogger). Is that still cool for Shared Topics?

Sounds fun to me!

I may be a ranged DPS, but I do have melee DPS alts too. Watch this space, I may break out of my being incredibly lazy ;)

Humour is totally cool for Shared Topics. Basically, you can write whatever you like that addresses the topic - it's just there as a source of inspiration!

If you are ever unsure... http://www.destructivereach.com/categor ... ed-topics/ are all the Shared Topics I have completed. Some of them are very tongue in cheek (like the WoW Movie one), while others are more serious. Whatever floats your boat!

Heya folks,

fresh off the presses: http://rilandune.blogspot.com/2010/01/b ... g-pve.html

When Fim and Nib post the next TNB I'll link to that for all participating blog links.

As I say in this post, I blame Brig for my plague/flu/cold/whatevertheheck I have right now. Need to go pass out now.

Cheers!

~Ril

I've added my take from a rogue slant as well - first Shared Topic for me ever. Yay!

Here's my personal perspective:

I also happened to notice that a bit over a week ago, Elnia from the Pink Pigtail Inn answered this shared topic, but never shared a link. Here is his take:

Hey everyone, although I'm a hunter blogger (and a hunter player) I threw together a post about how ranged DPS can help melee stay alive even though we can't directly heal them or anything.

http://trackknowledge.wordpress.com/2010/01/31/shared-topic-how-to-help-melee-dps-survive/

Thanks in advance if you decide to take a look =]
