Jun 2nd 2011 8:21AM The Ulduar and Sarth hard mode activation was just fantastic. It integrated varying the difficulty of the encounter into the fight itself without the clunky flick a switch mechanism of later raids. I would guess that the latter is much easier to design and code (and by extension cheaper too if you consider the cost of development time) which is why it's the norm now.
Feb 10th 2011 7:11PM I wonder if he realises that WoWWiki has the notes from all the old WoW patches... http://www.wowwiki.com/Category:World_of_Warcraft_patches
Would save him a lot of seaching through old notebooks!!
Jan 18th 2011 6:40AM I believe there's a hard enrage at 10 mins. We hit that a couple of times while learning the fight. There's also an mechanic where if there's nobody at melee range then he will do a frenzy attack over the whole raid which can very easily wipe you.

Jan 6th 2011 9:35PM Oh God! Please no more jousting!! The Argent Tournament was bad enough but more jousting in Hyjal makes me shudder!

There was a European competition. Unfortunately you missed it... Closing date was the 2nd August.
Jul 16th 2010 11:55AM What what?!! Baron Rivendare is leaving Stratholme?!! When did this happen? Is he finally fed up of commuting all the way between the Eastern Plaguelands and Naxx now that it's hovering over Dragonblight?
May 8th 2010 9:19AM Agreed! I really miss those staves... Maybe I was biased but it always seemed that whoever designed those staff models did a much better job than all the other caster staves. They really did look great - perhaps to make up for the fact you couldn't see them in feral forms!!
Having said that, why oh why did my squid on a stick (http://www.wowhead.com/item=28658) never drop when I was in a Kara run :-(
Apr 16th 2010 7:31PM Nowadays barrens chat is positively civilised compared to what is used to be in vanilla days... Sadly on my server the closest you get to the old barrens chat now is the ICC general channel!!
