Apr 5th 2011 4:05PM Sorcereo has it correct. There is still a way in (was grouped with a friend as he did it several weeks ago) but it is likely to get you severely punished by blizz if you're caught doing it.
To my knowledge, the mage way in no longer works.
Dec 18th 2009 11:28AM Total dirty little secret. I have a few guildies friended that will refer to me by my main's name sometimes. Those always get odd reactions from my other friends.
Dec 12th 2009 7:49PM FYI - Blues have stated that their internal "gearscore" system looks at all the items in your inventory, so just equipping a lower ilvl piece or taking an item off and placing it in your bags won't work.
Oct 26th 2009 5:06PM GDKP is fine for PuGs, but in a guild/guild alliance situation it's horrible. The raid as a whole cannot progress (or well, progression is harder than it should be) if loot is distributed by who can pay the most money for it. In an extreme situation, you'll end up gearing up one guy's main and (multiple) offspec(s) before gearing up another person's main.
GDKP has its place, but it doesn't belong anywhere near progression raiding.
Oct 19th 2009 10:03AM Shado "Fitz" Farstrider is my absolute favorite - a reference to multiple characters in Robin Hobb's Farseer and Tawny man trilogies. If you enjoy fantasy and haven't read them yet, I highly recommend them as well as the Liveship Traders trilogy. Farseer --> Liveship --> Tawny Man. All three trilogies (a trilogy of trilogies!) are set in the same world and same time period.

Sep 14th 2009 9:41AM Or a mage in Robes of the Umbral Brute. Christian would never allow a warlock (*stabbity*) into his column!
Sep 2nd 2009 11:25AM FYI - Crygil (customer service Blue) has posted that the maintenance yesterday was not the "final step" in the fix, and as such people shouldn't consider those realms fixed yet. Actual quote and link:
"While this maintenance was a step in the process of the reconfiguration, it was not the final step. We will need to perform additional maintenance to complete the process. "

Jul 27th 2009 4:50PM I'm not sure I like having the hard modes and regular modes separated since it takes the option of picking and choosing which hardmodes to do away from the raid. My guild has only progressed up to Mimiron on normal, but we're able to do Heartbreaker and FL+2. If Ulduar were set up the way the Coliseum is going to be (with hard modes completely separate from normals) we'd never see the extra goodies that we're getting from XT now since we can't do FL+4 (and thus wouldn't be able to progress past FL to farm Heartbreaker). Though, it would leave the option of doing "normal" progression with my guild and "hardmode" progression with my buddies... I may have to change my mind on this one. ^_^
