May 18th 2010 1:30PM Well here's a comparison of the intro (i251) ICC Warrior and Mage tier sets. I don't know about dps stats budgeting because they use different stats (str/int, ap/sp, etc) but the plate set does have an extra 246 stam.
My theory on it is that plate or melee classes in general need the extra stam for survivability so they can eat things like Gormok's stomp: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=66330
Feb 16th 2010 5:16PM I think the reason Blizz makes you have to be in a raid to zone in to a raid zone is to limit the number of raid instances created. Imagine if you attempted to zone in to do ICC hardmodes and you got the "additional raid instances could not be created" message from too many people checking out the armor vendors inside?

Jan 14th 2010 1:10PM They have four hooves, but apparently my character is physically incapable of noticing this or he has very high standards for picking up quest items. Maybe his bestial anatomy skill is too low :(
Jan 10th 2010 12:16PM I doubt they will keep int on mail gear; with the gear consolidation of the past year I rarely see gear that is catered towards a certain spec of a certain class (see: elemental gear). Just a thought, but blizz might decide to add in another talent like mental quickness (correct me if that's the wrong one) that adds sp based off ap, but instead adds mana based off agi if my enhancement buddies are going oom to often.
Dec 30th 2009 6:08PM Correct, t10 is the last tier of Wrath. At present, the highest ilvl attainable out of ICC is 264 but we will be able to get 277 pieces after the heroic modes come out. I think heroic Arthas will drop even higher (290?) but don't quote me on that. That should be the highest ilvl available until Cata drops.

Dec 18th 2009 6:22PM Do you mean 2500gs? Because 5200 (if that's even attainable) is way too high for 10man. I run around 2600 and wow-heroes says 10man ICC is what I should be running.
Dec 15th 2009 2:11PM Inn the Dungeon Finder Tips Con't article ya'll posted yesterday, it says to greed on all frozen orbs. In this article you say to need them all (I know it's an example of what the group would agree on, but making that greed might be better). Just wanted to make sure we weren't getting conflicting advice.
