There is an old motto that you will hear carpenters say that goes “Measure twice, cut once”.  Byron “Messiah” Mudry looks at how this simple motto of double checking things can apply in World of Warcraft.  If you have ever been caught in a talent build you shouldn’t be using, or wearing the wrong gear, or any number of other embarrassing situations this guide is for you.  Even if it has never happened to you, maybe your turn is coming and checking out the most common mistakes will pre-warn you of them and help you avoid them.

Probably the most common mistake is for players to get a new piece of gear, get excited that it is an upgrade and rush to equip it.  Only later on is it pointed out to them, or they spot it themselves if they are lucky, that they are no longer hit capped, defense capped, or missing some other key component. Always take your time when you are equipping a new piece of gear and ensure that your character’s key requirements are still met.
