Jul 4th 2011 4:17PM Should also mention how the multitudes of Firelands trash runs by pugs in ZA/ZG gear are lowering the demand for BoEs being purchased on the Auction House. I mean, why fork out 30-50k on something you can get for free with a little patience.
There are usually 15+ trash runs starting every hour on my server, this REALLY kills the profitability of BoE items on the Auction House. The fact that you don't need any raid experience to kill trash and that trash is 300% more plentiful in Firelands than in any of the previous tier raids should lead to gear being worth about as much as T11 gear was a few weeks before 4.2
In that context, if you're going to sell, sell now... if you're going to buy, wait 3-4 weeks when the demand is so low due to trash runs being so common that the market crashes and everything can be bought at reasonable prices. Of course, trash runs only ruin the market on high population realms, so it might be different elsewhere.
May 17th 2011 5:23PM We've already be toying with a Howling Blast spam spec on live and have several parses on hardmode bosses where it pulls out ahead. The most crucial part of the testing was that we use it in 25-man raids with a control group of Frost DKs using the typical Obliterate spec, normally they'd pull about 1k behind. In every test so far, not a single Obliterate specced Frost DK has proven better.
Blizzard really needs to think more outside of the box when making changes like this, we're doing it for the sake of the class. For now, Shadowfrost 2.0 will be haunting their dreams until a fix comes around for this.
May 5th 2011 1:12AM Arcane is already insanely viable right now... OP to say the least. It doesn't need some fancy tier bonus to be viable.
May 4th 2011 9:45PM I recall Tom Chilton saying there would be a normal and heroic version of Sulfuras.

Jan 19th 2011 1:33AM I blame this article for the recent hotfix.
Dec 17th 2010 4:31AM By adjusted, they mean they nerfed the damage because groups were wiping from Shadowlancers and Fireshapers way too often. Halls of Origination is pretty easy after you down the trash packs with those two types of mobs.
