Jul 21st 2009 6:09PM Both Holy and Disc Priests need to split up groups/assignments to work well. Be it Holy Nova/Prayer of Healing for Holy Priests or Shields/Prayer of Healing for Disc Priests.
I raid as Disc all the time, and I've never had any issue with other Disc Priests in the raid. My raid/guild leaders have, but that mainly comes from not knowing how my the spec works in practice.
Jul 13th 2009 5:23PM If it's someone's best item, the "they'll just take a plate item in the same slot later" argument is nonsensical.
They're going to want that item eventually because it's the best they can get and mechanic-changing patches are few-and-far between these days. Either they're going to take the item now or later.
For the record, I play a Priest and have no issue with other casters taking cloth if it's better than what they can get. I know I have specific enough gearing needs (Disc) that a lot of high-item-level cloth gets junked as-is.
Jul 8th 2009 12:46AM The Proto-Drakes are from the Glory of the X achievements, not the Undying-equivalent.
So instead of a title, they're giving a mount.
Jun 29th 2009 8:27PM World of Logs usually has both Prayer of Mending and Divine Aegis hovering around 10% in my Ulduar raids (most 10-man hard modes and full 25-man clears), so this puts the 2-piece as really nice with the 4-piece as mediocre.
An overall 3% extra healing along with 19-32 item levels worth of stats certainly make T9 worth getting if not the most exciting upgrade.
Jun 29th 2009 8:05PM These set-bonuses are a good deal less important than previous Tier jumps because of the 32 (!) item levels between 25-man T8 (226) and Heroic 25-man T9 (258).
Jun 21st 2009 8:38AM I was able to complete my meta-achievement just fine (with 40 Blossoms to spare). Unless they let us redo the fires from last year though, I won't be able to get the pet.
Apr 14th 2009 4:20AM Alliance have always been pretty dark when you get into their lore. It's a shame that those quest chains are such pains that most people avoided doing them even during Classic-era.
Outright evil among the Horde (in the WoW-era) is pretty much limited to the Blood Elves pre-Sunwell (and that gets handwaved away with M'uru allowing himself to be taken) and the Hand of Vengeance.
The Horde is essentially made up of exiled groups trying to avoid annihilation.
The "good" races on Alliance: Gnomes, Night Elves, and the Draenei; usually have made some horrible decision in their past that has basically screwed their capital/planet/universe respectively.
It's one of the things I like about WoW's lore is that ostensible bad guys are actually the good guys.
Jan 9th 2009 5:23PM Was able to log-in just fine from Los Angeles, CA, but Wildhammer appears down at the moment.
Jan 9th 2009 4:46PM Can't get to Blizzard.com from the West Coast (Los Angeles).

Next up we'll have Hexic in Starcraft 2... what's the world coming to?
