Shifting Perspectives: Feral tactics for Well of Eternity and Hour of Twilight {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 8:52AM Salira, thanks for the kind words, but I'm happily not in a warzone anymore. :) I returned from Iraq in December.

Shifting Perspectives: Why PvP gear isn't necessarily a stupid idea {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 2:28PM Allie, great post as always. I'm hoping that this is one of the things that gets fixed in Pandaria. Cats and bears rely so heavily on agility that gearing decisions are trivial and boring.

One note for cats: those "threat stats" that Allies dismisses are rather important for us, so the gulf is a little steeper than described here. A full set of 390 Honor PvP gear is probably equivalent to 378 PvE gear.

Shifting Perspectives: Feral tactics for Well of Eternity and Hour of Twilight {WoW}

Jan 8th 2012 5:09PM I know several people who are just now coming back to WoW (holidays), and in my Hour of Twilight run last night, 3/5 people looted the quest item off Arcurion, indicating they've never been there before.

Admittedly, they're not very tough (which is why I condensed the two into one column), but people who are fresh to the instances may want a quick primer before they start.

Shifting Perspectives: 2011 for feral druids {WoW}

Jan 1st 2012 11:07PM I know, right?

It seems my source link got dropped accidentally:

Shifting Perspectives: 2011 for feral druids {WoW}

Jan 1st 2012 11:05PM It's a bit harder to come up with good data for PvP. The info I was using was a list recently emailed to me of the top 100 Arena teams broken out by spec, which had something like 2 hunters, 3 ret pallies, and 4 DPS druids (combining moonkin and feral).

Jan 1st 2012 11:01PM Er, yes. Oops. Fixed, thanks.

Shifting Perspectives: Feral fighting in End Time {WoW}

Dec 26th 2011 10:27AM Excellent point, I should have mentioned that.

Shifting Perspectives: The feral gear list to rule them all {WoW}

Dec 11th 2011 10:54PM I'm referring to the fact that you have the opportunity to get the Spire relatively early in DS, with an upgrade (Kiril) from a later boss. This is better than Firelands, where you either had to get lucky with a Ranseur drop or get all the way to Staghelm.

Dec 11th 2011 9:33PM Clarified the text to say Dragon Soul. Thanks.

Shifting Perspectives: Your patch 4.3 feral cheat sheet {WoW}

Dec 5th 2011 7:41AM Cantor, you're right about GoTF overtaking GoBL/GoM in simulations with 4pT13. I hesitate to recommend it until I'm certain the encounter actually allows you the chance to use that cooldown reduction, though. GoBL's a little friendlier to use.
