Dragon Soul: Fall of Deathwing Raid Finder bosses explained in 5 seconds {WoW}

Dec 12th 2011 5:15PM Normal Ultraxion - Tanks stay in during Hour of Twilight (+2 more in 25 normal), everyone else uses Heroic Will - Tanks usually swap to rotate CDs. Tanks swap during fading light and everyone with fading light (tank + others) uses Heroic Will. Healers do healy things.

LFR Ultraxion - No one needs to stay in during Hour of Twilight, hopefully about 2/3s of the raid figures out how to click the button. Hour of Twilight won't outright kill you, but it will eventually overwhelm healers if not enough people use it. Only the tank get Fading Light, if the other tank doesn't taunt then ultraxion will start 1-shotting DPS. Healers do easier healy things.

Dragon Soul: Fall of Deathwing Raid Finder bosses explained in 5 seconds {WoW}

Dec 12th 2011 4:09PM I don't think Ultraxion is correct for LFR. No one needs to stay in during Hour of Twilight, not even the tank.

Tanks DO need to taunt swap during Fading Light, but the tank is the only person targeted in LFR.

The OverAchiever: Littlest Pet Shop, part 2 {WoW}

Oct 6th 2011 11:40AM If you're close to the 150 mark, and have the patience, wait for patch 4.3. There are a lot of new pets listed at mmo-champ from data mining - some/most seem to be associated with the new Darkmoon Faire.

For some, this is a better option than grinding for rares or spending on the AH.

Shifting Perspectives: Feral cat raiding strats for the Firelands, part 3 {WoW}

Aug 15th 2011 2:52PM The problem with extending the cat phase much longer, is that you
a) Run out of room for leaps/puddles
b) Leap faster, therefore spawning adds faster. More and more dps uptime is focused on cats leaving less and less dps time on the boss

I think the risk:reward ratio is isn't favorable to extending cat phases longer than necessary.

Blood Pact: What to do once you hit level 85 {WoW}

Aug 8th 2011 5:17PM Can't reforge resilience.

Alternatively just buy the full crafted, blue PVP set, ilvl 358. Get into the Heroic Zuls and collect your JPs.

Totem Talk: A weapon in every healing hand? {WoW}

"Elemental and Resto are going to be pretty unlikely to want to dual-wield in Cataclysm. For the most part we want them using a one-handed caster weapon and shield. "

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: Revenge of the Warrior, now Improved {WoW}

Cataclysm: Stat and system changes for holy paladins {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2010 9:03AM GC posted that mastery will provide a small stat bonus when using your 'native' armor type. Doesn't mean that cloth, leather, mail will never be an upgrade, just that we'll finally have a reason to favor plate gear.

Shifting Perspectives: Awesome tanking gear and how to get it easily {WoW}

Jun 20th 2007 8:49AM @ #9 - bluebottleblues -
You're mostly right. As I posted above, it is about balancing stamina, armor and dodge. But you only need to get to 415 Defense (with 3/3 survival of the fittest talents) to be uncrittable by raid boss - lvl 73 - mobs.

Stacking more defense after 415 is not the best use of gear points. It is more effective to put it into straight agility (or armor or stam).
