Oct 29th 2011 3:24PM I'm sure you're right, 99 out of 100 people who dislike the Pandaren are doing so because they secretly like them, but really care what a bunch of strangers think about their anonymous comments. Or maybe you just find it easier to dismiss their motives than engage them in debate.
Oct 27th 2011 12:36PM Omg that long haired emo-hating death metal singer is 41?! Hahaha wow, you're right. Now I'm even less offended by him, I kind of feel sorry for him. Meh, disregard everything I said earlier. This guy's old enough to take responsibility for his words.

Ahh ok I follow you, you're assuming one tier token per week per raider. That may actually be accurate, depending on how they implement DS bosses and the tier 14 drops in MoP. I'm hoping, since you can no longer purchase tier, that tier tokens drop off more than one boss. If there are 2 or 3 bosses that drop chest, a few who drop legs, etc, that will sure help us gear up faster.
Oct 27th 2011 12:15PM I want to be careful I'm being clear, because that sort of public display is ugly and has no place at a corporate convention. But I think it's a stretch to hang this kid from the rafters, he's a teenage American male, and thats how teenage American males speak. It's not excusing it, but it's not necessarily proof of him being a "homophobic misogynist mouth breather". He's just a stupid kid. Let's move on.
Oct 27th 2011 12:05PM By the sound of it, you could play an arcane mage with the original NES controller! A is Arcane Blast, B is Arcane Barrage, select is Evo, now go pull 25k dps! Haha, just kidding arcane mages /poke. ;)

I think he's talking about the first lvl 85-86 zone, of which there is only one. It's a legitimate concern.
Oct 27th 2011 11:48AM I'm curious how you calculated this. Assuming 5 tier slots for ten raiders, that's 50 tokens. Further assuming each boss drops two tokens, if there are only 5 bosses in the tier (unlikely, usually it will be 7+) that's ten tokens per clear. Sounds like 5 weeks to me, assuming RNG is perfect and there are only 5 bosses total in the tier. The more bosses, the more chances at tokens.
Oct 27th 2011 11:36AM Actually, as a shadow priest main with both afflict and holy (pally) alts, it sounds like the shadow orb mechanic will more closely resemble Holy Power than Soul Shards. Locks use soul shards to emphasize other abilities, and usually need to be out of combat or killing mobs to regain them. From what we know it looks like shadow orbs will be required to use Mind Blast, which parallels paladins holy power to use certain abilities ( word of glory, etc). Shadow orbs will be proced automatically from mind flaying, much like holy power is auto proced from other abilities.
I also imagine they'll do something with the stock ui like they did to pallies holy power in cata.
Oct 27th 2011 12:25AM Ehhh how exactly are you going to MC someone and VS them at the same time?
Oct 26th 2011 10:28AM The change is only for past tier content. The current tier will remain once weekly. You won't "burn through the current end content" any faster.
