Nov 14th 2008 2:10PM That's phasing in action. When you go into the fog, it phases you so that you can see the mobs there (and consequently so that they can see you). If you watch closely, you'll notice that other players who run into the fog disappear ;).
Nov 14th 2008 1:51PM It depends on what your goal is. If you want to make money, take Skinning and either Herbalism or Mining and sell the materials that you collect on the Auction House. If you want to make armor for yourself, Skinning and Leatherworking would be a good choice. If you want to be able to make your own Glyphs, then Inscription and Herbalism is probably your best bet.
Nov 14th 2008 1:38PM Hit will always be an important stat since it negates the chance that you'll miss your target. Capping your Hit rating is one of the biggest DPS boosts you can give yourself.
Hit Caps at 80:
Spellcasting - 634
Melee (Two-Handers) - 296
Melee (Dual-Wielding) - 918
Obviously these can be modified based on talents.
Nov 14th 2008 1:33PM No, they've done away with items that increase mount speed entirely from 71 to 80. The Devs have stated that they don't want people to have to waste a trinket slot for items like that.
Originally, they just changed the trinkets so that you could apply them to your mount and your mount would permanently gain +x% speed, but it actually used up the Riding Crop/Carrot on a Stick/Skybreaker Whip (meaning once you applied it to a mount it was gone). That meant that you would have to buy a separate Riding Crop for every mount that you wanted to add the speed boost to. Due to the amount of money that that would cost, they just scrapped speed boost items entirely.
Last I heard, they were brainstorming to find a different way to apply the speed boost that wouldn't be costly and wouldn't take up a trinket slot.
