Dec 2nd 2010 2:06PM Unfortunately, tabards are wearable items, so they have to be actual items you can place on the character. The pet/mount system works very differently, so I doubt they can make that happen.
Nov 27th 2010 4:25PM Just install the Wrath disc and it will patch in the rest of the updates.
Oct 26th 2010 6:50PM 1) Death & Decay. The threat gen alone is worth it, especially with tanking a group of mobs.
2) Apply diseases. If tanking a group, hit Pestilence.
3) Blood Boil, even if it's a single-target. You should have the talent that makes BB reduce your targets damage output.
4) Death Strike often to regen health
Outside that, it's situational. Those 4, though, are your bread & butter.
Oct 26th 2010 5:27PM He's referring to the little gift box the orphan matron gives you after completing "Put Out The Fires" daily. And yes, it has a chance to drop one of the low-drop items from the Horseman. I got the helm on my level 20 druid that way last year.
Oct 23rd 2010 8:58PM The magazine is quarterly (ie. 4 times a year). Still, issue 3 is running rather late...
Oct 14th 2010 8:19PM Auctioneer is now working if you download the beta 5.9 version.
Oct 11th 2010 7:03AM One big thing I haven't seen mentioned yet: years have passed since WotLK ended when Cata starts*. That's enough time for characters to grow and change in dramatic ways.
For my hunter, it's no big deal. He retired to a small cabin in the Howling Fjord with his pet wolf. The Cataclysm forces him out of retirement.
My Death Knight has been attempting to tank as Blood for quite a while. So, this is just a honing of the skills he's been learning.
My Mage is still levelling, so it works from a "mastery of power" story.
* Yeah, patch 4.01 drops before Cata actually does, but I'm willing to handwave that bit for roleplay purposes.
Sep 27th 2010 8:33AM Honestly? Being able to participate in the Holiday boss fights. I've been playing catch-up ever since I first started (right around the BC release), and this is the first time I've actually been at the level cap.
Mind you, having epics at this point makes these fights trivial. But, at least I can participate!
Sep 9th 2010 10:17AM I'd say, worrying over nothing. Like the article says, your epics will blow away the first few zones of content in Cata, and then you'll replace that gear around 83-84 or so. ArP and Crit are pretty equally useless when leveling, anyway.
Aug 26th 2010 6:35PM Check out the new WoW Rookie: although there are still Kobolds, the starter area (Northshire Abbey) also includes Blackrock Orcs!
