Sep 18th 2010 8:21AM I'd say to be "iced" in pop culture means to be murdered, at least traditionally. Usually specifically related to mobsters and so on.

Totem Talk: Enhanced moves with Halion {WoW}

Aug 24th 2010 7:05AM I'm not sure stopping DPS while cutters are up to avoid parries in phase two is such a great idea. If you move out to the edge of the hitbox as a melee you should be able to stick on the back foot reasonably well while moving, and ideally your raid should be using CDs on the tank downstairs to avoid parry-related gibs while everyone is moving.

Also, I think most enhancement shamans would end up in the Twilight realm in phase three, wouldn't they? If you are in the Twilight realm, since melee do a lot better while moving than most ranged, it's especially important that you manage to maintain DPS during the cutters, otherwise your side will end up falling behind.

As you point out though, for personal DPS it's much nicer to be outside in phase three, but I don't think too many melee would have that luxury.

Raid Rx: No pally? No problem {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2010 8:46PM You need a Holy Paladin or two for Heroic LK, sure, but you don't need all those other things you mentioned. Two Hunters is not a requirement, and if you don't have Rogues or Ret Paladins for stuns there are lots of other classes that can cover for them. Chilblains works fine but so do Desecration, Crippling Poison, Typhoon, Frost Trap, Piercing Howl... there's a variety of alternatives to each of those "requirements" you list that are equally effective. Heroic LK is actually very forgiving on raid comp with the 30% buff out now, aside from the fact that you need bubbles to deal with infest and strong tank healing. You can fill the rest of the raid with almost any comp and still complete the fight.

Anyway, I don't think this article was ever talking about Heroic LK.
