Nov 5th 2008 1:24PM I agree with Dumptruk that the Ret nerfs have indeed hurt Pally Tanks threat output, and that's coming from a Ret Pally. I did a Kara last night with some guildies and noticed a huge difference in threat output from our Pally MT from last week's Kara run with the same group. I pulled aggro multiple times even when I was waiting for him to get threat and going super light even when he had sufficient aggro (I even equipped non-DPS gear like the Ogre Trinket to help cut back).
Last week with the same people I didn't have a problem with pulling aggro, this week I do. The only thing that's changed in the past week was the patch (I didn't get any gear upgrades - but the Pally Tank did).
I don't have any numbers to back up my claim but something just seems to be off for Pally Tanks and I'm willing to bet it has to do with the nerfs.
Oct 1st 2008 5:36PM One of the geeks that works at the local geek store told me he saw the preview of these at Comic Con, and he said that Upper Deck said these Minis will have loot cards "at a higher rate" than the TCG. Don't know if it's true but he sounded like he knew what he was talking about in a geeky sort of way.
Sep 30th 2008 6:57PM Since when were arenas balanced anyways?
I think this decision sucks as a class that has been rarely seen in the top end of arena teams. I was really liking what they were doing with the patch and hoping to finally get something to work with. Guess not...just goes to show Blizz loves Druids and Rogues and hates the rest of us. ;)

Don't forget Dire Maul.
