Feb 15th 2012 4:00PM I'm leveling my 4th tank (DK) right now, and I'm seeing more and more dps/healers in full PvP gear in dungeons (currently lvl 71 and in Northrend, the trend started with Outland). What's up with that? Is honor gear that easy to get, and that much better than PvE gear? Am I missing out by not picking up some PvP gear for my DK?
Jan 26th 2012 4:47PM The armor (sans helm, belt and boots) is the tier 11 Earthen Warplate (or its lookalike). The belt and boots are the 4.3 Valor plate dps items (or their corresponding lookalikes). The helm is DK tier 12 heroic, or heroic Greathelm of the Voracious Maw from Alysrazor in Firelands. The weapon is the 390 ilvl Gurthalak from Raid Finder Dragon Soul.
Jan 25th 2012 8:47PM YES! Papa's alive!!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou Cadi! That old dwarf needs something to go right in his life, and you just gave him the chance to do so.
And maybe, just maybe, finding out that an orc and a troll were the ones to save his daughters would bring him the peace and closure that he needed after seeing his son die at the hands of the Horde.
Now Brynne and Lisaara can grow up and have ADVENTURES.
Jan 17th 2012 5:55PM While Gurthalak is definitely a great weapon for a DK, do remember to not pass up on the Experimental Specimen Slicer off Yor'sahj. The crit+mastery stats on it do greatly benefit blood tanks.
Jan 8th 2012 8:34PM I vote for Draenei - their lore shows them to have amazing affinity for all forms of magic, and they've been next-door neighbors to the Night Elves for just enough time for the first draenei druidic apprentices to start showing up.
On the Horde side - perhaps the blood elves, based on their common ancestry with the night elves? Definitely not Forsaken (undead), goblins (too materialistic) or orcs (kinda hard to forgive a race that killed the first teacher of druidism, even if it was in demon-blood-fueled-rage).
Jan 1st 2012 7:48AM Re: Evylxx: Your talent build link shows that you passed over Divine Guardian - I'm curious as to whether you're running with a resto shaman or two in your raids to provide the Spirit Link Totem raid damage reducer or something similar to make up for it?
Dec 10th 2011 2:16AM The clicky on the Mirror is still very useful for heavy magic damage fights, the mastery is useful depending upon where you are in regards to CTC. Definitely hang on to it, it's only one more thing to carry.
Nov 30th 2011 5:46PM As I understand it, it's not that the Dragon/Demon Soul is hurting Deathwing, it's flooding him with more energy than he can handle. From "War of the Ancients" I remember that when Neltharion turned the Dragon Soul against the Blue Dragonflight, the amount of power that was coursing through him started to tear him apart, thus necessitating the armor plating that he has on now to keep him together, literally. Thrall is basically overcharging a giant capacitor. Thanks to the Old God corruption, instead of Deathwing going explodey, he's just turning into something out of a h-manga.
Nov 16th 2011 3:48PM Mmm... Remorseless Winter as a DK in gear transmogged to Scourgelord's armor (preferably 10H with bits from 10N ICC). Anyone know of a 2H sword other than the starter zone blue that has looks similar to Frostmourne?
Nov 7th 2011 5:47PM Oh, the Dark Portal. I remember leveling up my first character to 60, getting the quest to go through the portal....and emerging onto what looked like the surface of Mars, but with DEMONS. I turn around to hotfoot it out of there - and I see the towering vastness of the Outland Portal before me.
I think I went "Meep!" at that point. Not my finest hour.
