Oct 31st 2011 2:35PM I don't think the faire has come to the PTR yet, but wowhead has data-mined the profession quests, each awards +5 to your profession and it looked like they could be completed at the faire (you don't need to farm random mats like the old rep turn ins).
Oct 28th 2011 1:15PM lol, I was totally planning a "balloon" team with my alliance balloon, Willy and the upcoming Darkmoon Faire balloon.
Oct 28th 2011 12:39PM I'm actually hoping the female Pandaren are significantly different than the males. Unless they're going to allow us fur colors beyond the black and white, customization options (at least ones that are easily visible while playing) are going to be few and having a high degree of sexual dimorphism would be a nice way to make it so not all pandas look alike. They don't have to be "sexy" by any means, but different would be nice.
Oct 12th 2011 1:20PM I use the G13 with my right hand, I just use the thumb joystick with the palm of my hand instead. Not as ideal as one that had the thumb on the left side, but miles better than using a keyboard.
Oct 5th 2011 9:05PM Thank goodness, putting my old armor sets in the void storage at the old prices would have made me broke.
Oct 4th 2011 1:10PM Based on the data, it doesn't seem that GC's explanation of hunters not getting the AP boost that melee is getting because their dps is "fine, or maybe a little high" really holds up. They seem to be in the same place as rogues and warriors with one spec that performs well, and the other specs either riding the line or underperforming. It seems like nerfing MM and extending the extra 10% to ranged would go farther in creating balance than excluding a class who only has 1 spec significantly over the median.
Sep 30th 2011 2:28PM What options does a raid group without a mage or priest have to deal with Rag's traps? Our usual trap tripper was out this week and we were at a loss of what to do in his absence.
Sep 30th 2011 2:19PM Because the Lava Bolt Crossbow was originally going to be a gun, but they switched it to a crossbow at the last minute (forgot the gun artwork perhaps?), but didn't change the sound files. They've said it'll take a client-side patch to fix, why they didn't include it in the mini-patch a few weeks ago is beyond me, so many people find the gunfire sound insanely annoying.
Sep 20th 2011 4:23PM I have to admit to being just a little bummed. My 10 man team was finally coming together after a bit of a rocky start and was getting some really good attempts in on Rag. We had a good chance of downing him last week, except our main heals was out of town, the replacement's kid broke an arm 30 min into the raid night, and the next night one of our newer additions went all drama queen and decided to pvp past raid start (despite many warnings) then started to act all pissy when we replaced him. All in all it was a disastrous week.
Still, overall, I'll be happy to be clearing the place. It's fun learning new fight, but with everything but Rag on farm it'll be a welcome speed boost getting through the place.
Sep 15th 2011 1:38PM We got our achievement during T11 and weren't able to get it for more than 3 people the 1st go round (the 2nd time only 2 needed it so it was no problem). We were running with 2 healers to help with all the damage in the 2nd phase, but when Siamat does the bit where he tosses everyone around there's a very high chance of someone landing in a storm and getting punting off the side. It's *far* less stressful to have fewer people attempting it. As long as you can trust your group to "come back tomorrow" I wouldn't bother trying to get it for everyone.
For strats look up the achievement on wowhead, that's where my group found one that worked for us.
