Mar 30th 2012 10:56AM I am rather fond of the Silver-Thread Regalia (http://www.wowhead.com/transmog-set=23), even though it can be difficult to obtain the entire thing. It works pretty well for my shadow priest, as it is already dark colored, so it doesn't look overly weird when in shadow form, but it does result in an interesting silvery outline in certain areas.
Personally, I thought that the Silver-Thread Amice looked a bit small, so I swapped in the Soulstealer Mantle from Stratholme, which is a slight bit larger, but still follows the same color scheme that I was going for on that character.
Also, while being a bit out of the color scheme, I went with the Veil of the Silent Listener for my headpiece (because the Silver-Thread Regalia is missing a headpiece), which makes me look very sinister & rogue-ish.
Jan 26th 2012 1:30AM I'd have to admit, that I actually don't care for they "no loot to the same person twice" rule, for this fact:
Let's say two daggers drop off a boss, and there is only one person that rolls need on both of them. Now, because they will win the first one, they automatically become ineligible for the second? How does that make sense?
What I would prefer to see is something where if you roll need on two items, and you win the first item, the bonus 100 roll that is added to your roll is removed. That way, if more than one person rolls on the items, there is no way for that person to win the second.
Person A - 87 + 100
Person B - 80 + 100
Person A - 100 + 0
Person B - 1 + 100
Pretty simple if you ask me.

Dec 7th 2011 3:09PM The information that you provided for the Tattered Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets is partially correct. At the current time, there is no use for them, but that doesn't mean that they are necessarily just vendor trash. Here is a response that I received from a GM on the issue:
"At the present time, the Tattered Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets have no value in the game. Our developers are still in the process of deciding how they want to handle the tickets though. It's possible that they will decide to leave them as is...and have no use in the game, or they may end up deciding to put them to use in some way, shape, or form. I realize it's not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth at this time as a final decision hasn't been reached thus far."

Oct 30th 2011 4:07AM There are a few general stages of software production.
Pre-Alpha: Beginning stages of coding, no real usable changes are available.
Alpha: Usually contains the first parts of the new software, and is often missing large portions of what is planned to be released. During this portion of software production, changes are almost certain, and it is generally limited to developers and internal personnel.
Closed Beta: Changes are generally close to completion, and are available for use. There are often bugs in the software yet, and additional tweaks are necessary in calculations, but for the most part this is a good example of how the program will work.
Open Beta/Public Test: Most of the bugs have been ironed out, but additional tweaking or smaller bugs may still exist. Generally, this is very close to what will be released. This stage is usually intended for people to do "real-world testing", and is not really meant for your average user. In the case of WoW, this would really be intended for addon authors, guide writers, etc. along with the people that are looking for bugs in the game.
Release: The software that is released to the public for sale. There are generally very few bugs in the software (but as I learned long ago, if you've found no bugs, you better keep testing).
In some software, you are able to keep your information from one stage to the next, however, the system that Blizzard has set up uses multiple databases, which when moving from one stage to the next, would be nearly impossible to retain all of the information without issues arising elsewhere.
That being said, if you participate in the Beta, any progress you make will NOT be transferred to the PTR, nor will that progress be transferred to the Release version of WoW. Likewise, any progress you make on the PTR is not transferred to the Release version.
