    Default Dirge Rezzing Options

    I just switched to Dirge yesterday after playing Troubador for a year and half.

    I been dreading going Dirge really at the simple fact of rezzing. If anyone able to tell me or give pointers to fastest ways of rezzing that would be amazing.

    I made a macro threw peoples names based by priority. I also been told to use the raid hotkeys which leaves me where I need a working set of hotkeys for my Dirge. Please give me the general run down of what one of you high end dirges are doing.

    Thank you.

    the more popular UI's - Drums, Prophet, etc., - have customizable "click to cast" buttons for the Raid Window. set two of the buttons to your rezzes (singular and group), and also macro a /rsay or scout channel shout as to who you're rezzing. then rez from your raid window. typically you'll want to take a few steps back from the mob to cast your rezz. keep an eye on your chat window which will tell you if you're out of range to rezz.

    Dirge rezzing isn't that hard, it's just painfully slow.

    Here are a few things I learned:
    - On EM fights, don't rez. The healers ALWAYS have better options.
    - If some asshole is dying over and over because they can't follow a script/joust, don't rez them. They are hindering you as well as themselves.
    - On HM fights, if healers fall, I would typically cast the group rez since the group will most likely die before the healer gets rezzed anyway. That way, the whole group gets the rez instead of just the healer. Adjust depending on how difficult the fight is.
    - Turnstrike can be amazing when your group gets WTFPWN'd and you are the only group member standing. TS then group rez. AOE signets are good too.
    - Carry rez signets. People will think you're an amazing dirge.
    - Coordinate with other toons that can rez. Nothing is more enraging than sitting there casting a rez and the dead toon takes a faster rez wasting your time. Especially when the other rezs give shit health/power and sickness.
    - Cycle your Confront Fear on everyone that took a rez that causes sickness. This is actually the most overlooked aspect of rezzing. CF is quick casting, so don't be an asshole to protect your DEEPS. Priority should be obvious.

    90% of the above advice is kinda bad. Get capped casting speed through adorns/reforging/AA's (ofcourse), and as much ability reuse as possible.

    My next tip is if you are using a group rez, use it on the least likely person to get rezzed (if a full group is dead, dont try rezzing the healer or tank, group rez on a dps class, or a utility. Sounds kinda dumb, but saves time/frustration if someone else single target rezzes the person u were targeting. Everyone always rezzes healers/tanks first, so a quick rez will just make you rage.). Pretty much the only good advice from above was Confront fear, and rez signets.

    Use Drums or Profit for quick raid/group buttons for rezzing/Confront fear/gravitas/BC.

    Learn, live, prophet - win.

    Cancel Spellcast
    Group rez the mage or scout (Davito nailed it)
    Macro your rezzes and have healers/other dirge macro theirs
    Use raid window
    Get better healers
    Time your autos on rezzes so dps doesn't stall to bad

    In interface options, remove names for every player but your current target. When someone dies out of rez range, it helps a lot to see where the corpse is.

    Since our res are short range, I have found it helpful to change the text of corpses from grey to red to help find the bodies.

    Options > User Interface > Game Colors > Corpse Name > Red
