Apr 4th 2012 5:25PM As someone who has raided as a shadow priest since Vanilla, the loss of a proper Vampiric Embrace bothers me more than anything else.
I understand that trying to balance group healing with it might be difficult, but losing even the self-heal element stings - especially since Warlocks apparently get it as a T1 Talent.
Apr 4th 2012 4:51PM All non-combat pets stealth with their master now.at
You can only see non-combat pets when someone is stealthed if you are in a group with them.
Believe me, I remember when they changed it: I had an RP character who was a non-combat pet, and it basically killed the character.
I've checked back every few months to see if the change was reverted or made optional, but thus far it remains in place.

Frosty, without a doubt.
Frosty has the cutest look, the best on-click noises, and he follows you wherever you go.
Just looking at him makes my day a little better. He always seems so amazingly happy.
The only pet that could possibly come close to Frosty would be if they had a duckling.
Because ducklings are scientifically proven to be cutest.

Mar 31st 2012 3:44AM I sincerely hope it comes with a frost whelpling.

I think there's a single 'braid beard' option, and the rest have Fu Manchu's.

The ability to trade tokens under the new system would defeat the purpose of the new rolling system, which is to reduce loot drama.
If you could still trade tokens, the current drama-filled system would remain intact.
By making every member of the pug a loot island, unconnected and untouchable by others, the elements contributing to drama are removed.
Mar 27th 2012 1:42PM Items will still be tradeable for normal and heroic raids.
The new non-tradeable loot system is only for raid finder and world bosses, where you are likely to be pugging.
If you get an item you can't use, you can vendor it. It will be as if you didn't win an item and only got gold from the boss.
Personally, I think a system like this is long overdue for cross-server pugging, where there is no community pressure for decent loot behavior.
