Jun 20th 2008 8:13PM As stated above, the kits themselves are NOT BoP, but when used, the item it's used on becomes soulbound. All kits are still tradable, and can still be used by anyone at the right level. This just kills twink leg enchanting.
As for drums, again the statement is correct that you now get a debuff from drums that prevents you from getting a drum buff for two minutes (the cooldown of drums, very appropriately). One LW per group will now be all you can do.
Shame you obviously missed this when you did your research, but if you bothered to just have a single look at the wotlk.wikidot.com you'd know...
Aug 31st 2007 4:04PM Well, there are various characters that play a very large part. As for who the most directly powerful entity is, it would be the titans that created Azeroth and the dragons. There's just not really anything that comes even remotely close to their insane power.
After that is the old gods (that the titans defeated), the dragons (with Neltharion/Deathwing probably being the strongest there) and various other gods/spirits.
As for making things what they are today, according to lore, Rhonin has played quite a significant part in the outcome of various battles, Thrall is the major player in the Orcs' rise to power, and Arthas in the making of the Scourge and Forsaken, plus the downfall of old Lordaeron. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande have all played important roles in the outcome of the War of the Ancients and the second invasion of the Burning Legion, so I guess they're not to forget either.
My personal vote for the most influential though, would be Medivh.
