My friend got in on the first wave and he's not part of the "press corp." However, he's been playing since Day 1 with zero lapse in his subscription regardless as to if he was actually in-game and he signed up for the Annual Pass almost immediately. Q4tQ - I'm not in beta, but from what I am told, the major tank mechanic for Brewmaster isn't available until 70-ish. How would a fledgling Brewmaster tank lower level dungeons? Bears, I think, get their 400% from the start. Are there other mechanics at play before the Mitigation-over-time "drink" comes into play?

I'm not sure what you mean by the "major" tank mechanic, but as far as I know, Stagger (the thing that delays half of all damage from a hit to be taken over the next six seconds) is obtained at level 10 with Stance of the Drunken Ox. It becomes mitigation after you obtain Mastery, which reduces the stagger damage you take.If you're talking about a threat modifier, I heard that possibly all classes were bugged and did not have threat modifiers in tank stance at the moment. I know for certain that Ox stance was missing its threat modifier before the latest beta patch, but it's supposed to come with the stance.
