Nov 29th 2008 2:25PM Spirit is not a worthless stat, as an arcane mage a certain amount of spirit allows for mana regen. If your fire or frost or the hybrid frostfire build, sure it isn't worth it, but as an arcane mage who can get a 80% while casting mana regen, it is a fairly strong stat.
Sep 25th 2008 7:05PM I don't see too much of a problem with releasing the game with a few small problems and nothing game breaking. Had it been, "Well, we know Utgarde Keep is one of our new instances, but half of the entire instance map is missing" then I would see pushing it back. The riptide animation/sound not being as it should be will no way break the game and make it unenjoyable, although the hunter talent is a little overboard, but still, nothing game breaking that will keep people from experiencing content on an equal level.
