Mar 20th 2011 1:46AM You know what my problem is with arcane on live? With halfway decent gear I can sit there in ABSpam mode for a full minute. The fun part of arcane phases for me was the ability to burn my mana from 100% to 0 in a matter of seconds if the burst is needed. The PTR buff for arcane is the first one that moves in the right direction for an arcane that cares about mana, whereas the previous buffs just made arcane monotonous again by making ABSpam go on for too long - heck, with full raid buffs and a good chain of spellstolen remedies from Maloriak you can run a burn phase for over a minute - and that's not making mana matter.
Feb 19th 2011 12:25PM Reading is hard, no?
"When players queue as a group with a tank or a healer, and the tank or healer drops group (or is kicked) within the first 5 minutes, all of the other players who queued with them are removed from the group as well."
This means that anyone who buys a tank for the queue and has the tank drop group upon zoning in will also be dropped. Not that the tank that drops upon zoning into Stonecore will cause everyone else to drop. It's a fix aimed at the jerks trading in tank queues who don't actually stick around to play the instance.
Feb 16th 2011 3:25PM Given that these SimC runs were done on a lvl 88 raid boss, hit will be valued highly up to the normal 1742 rating (17% spell hit). For a level 87 heroic boss, you only have a base chance to miss of 6% (which is where that 615 comes from). Of course, I'd recommend simming it anyway (with an override for a +2 boss), but stacking hit above what you need to hit the highest-level enemy you'll face remains a waste of itemization regardless of where it falls out in the numbers as it has a value of 0 dps per point added above the cap.

This this this. A thousand times THIS. I playfully yell at our shaman for purging Remedy on Maloriak - I want my invincibility heals!
