Mar 5th 2012 2:24PM Assuming mage armor is going to be a 5% boost to mastery instead of just 5?
Mar 5th 2012 2:08PM You want to worry about losing aggro? Tank in ret.
I for one enjoy not having to worry about tanking a 5 man full of 398 geared dps on my tank alt and struggling to hold aggro while they do their wrath aoe faceroll.
Feb 24th 2012 5:12PM I wonder what sort of effect removing lockouts (though restricting loot eligibility to the first kill) would have on raiding.
One of the big things in Cata to my mind is the lack of flexibility that the combined lockouts imposed. It used to be that I could run my main in a 25 and then be able to support alt runs/achieve runs in 10 mans with the same toon. Now I need to gear alts if I'm going to support my guild's other runs. 25s would be more viable with a greater pool of raiders to choose from.
Feb 22nd 2012 2:25PM Large markets are not necessarily better. C.f. the bond market attached to European debt or the monstrous CDS market that lurks behind it.
Feb 22nd 2012 2:20PM Emotionally, I tend to agree with the idea of leaving hard modes alone.
The issue however is that if a guild has cleared normal and maybe done one or two heroics and then stalled, they are pretty much stuck for the rest of the xpac. By lessening the difficulty of heroic encounters, it provides a little more content to struggle along with.

Oct 22nd 2011 3:14PM I think the prevailing wisdom about arcane is from more than just parses. I'm pretty sure Arcane is still simming ahead of the competing specs as well.
Aug 22nd 2011 1:44PM It is due to class colors in raid frames. People see class colors, particularly when they are doing things like marking for a pull, checking healer mana, etc. It is easier to remember 'green=hunter' than 'green=J. Random Hunter."
Jul 26th 2011 12:16PM I leveled a holy priest pretty recently and I found for dungeons that I rarely had to do anything more in 5 mans than renew/bubble on anyone with an occasional flash heal on the tank. I realize this is not mana efficient healing but I didn't run into mana problems until around lvl 83.
Jun 20th 2011 12:53PM I call shenanigans on the lack of a draenei skeleton model. Every time my mage dies, I see a skeleton, replete with a bony tail left behind.
