Sep 1st 2011 9:09AM It's probably worth mentioning that weapons might be an exception for melee classes when it comes to PvP gear. For most melee classes, one of the few things that trumps your primary stat (i.e. Strength or Agility) is weapon damage/DPS. If you're sporting an ilvl 378 PvP weapon, its probably better than any 346 PvE weapon--and probably better than any 359 PvE weapon, too.
Of course, if you're sporting an ilvl 378 PvP weapon, you're probably not coming to WoW Rookie to understand item level better....

Sep 20th 2010 10:03AM I'm also curious about the red exclamation point, but I'm not sure that I buy into the yellow+aura theory. Can anybody in the beta weigh in?

Aug 11th 2010 6:32PM My point wasn't about profession content--merely that the minimum level a toon must be to access that content will increase twice as much as the level content. To wit...
Wrath Level Cap: 80
Min. Profession Level for Max: 65
Cataclysm Level Cap: 85
Min. Profession Level for Max: 75
Aug 11th 2010 4:57PM Thanks for the info! (Though I'm sad that an increase in the level cap of 5 equates to an increase of 10 levels for professions....)
Aug 11th 2010 2:44PM In Wrath of the Lich King, a character must be at least level 65 in order to train the highest echelons of a profession. What level will my professionally inclined alts need to be in order to train to the highest level in Cataclysm? For that matter, what IS the highest level?
Jul 28th 2010 4:34PM Well, I think that everybody would agree that the best way to get the debuff is via a Protection Warrior (who would be able to apply the debuff as part of his regular rotation). Absent that (as my guild is), the only options are a Rogue's Expose Armor or a Beast Mastery Hunter's Worm pet. However, as Chase has pointed out, in some cases having a Rogue apply Expose Armor is an option that is obviously beneficial, but having a Hunter switch to Beast Mastery is very likely a considerable loss of DPS at this point.
