Apr 7th 2011 4:55PM Was lucky enough to get the polar bear the very first time I did the daily, but I didn't get my green drake until the week before Cataclysm launched.
And there's definitely mounts missing. The above mentioned UP and Occ, plus the super easy to get Bronze drake from COT: Strat.
Feb 17th 2011 5:05PM Spelio, I absolutely think that's why range seems to be missing right now. The trend carries into randoms as well it seems. It's just really hard from going to feeling invincible when doing dailies/solo content/old content to being concerned about going OOM and pulling those extra mobs that will make for a death run.
Feb 17th 2011 4:24PM My guild has had the same issue. We recently took on another guild slightly smaller than ours so we can raid more nights, and have some more ranged DPS. Last night I sat out of a raid I signed up for days ago solely because there was zero ranged DPS in the group, and someone that hadn't planned on raiding logged into their moonkin. I was talking to guildies about the change, and how in classic (the majority of my guild has been together since MC) we always had tons of ranged, 8-10 warlocks and another 6-8 hunters were extremely common in our 40 mans, but now most of us have moved to melee classes. I've been asked if I would like to dust off my mage that hasn't been in a raid since SSC, and I've not leveled more than 30 minutes at a time since WOTLK released, and soak up some cloth gear, but that would mean dropping my DK, which I have no desire to do. There is no way I am dropping the one-man wrecking crew that my DK (and other melee classes) is to become a glass cannon like in classic.

Jun 2nd 2010 4:19PM I've been playing since launch, and I've had one mystery that I have yet to find an answer to. What is the story behind the crystallized trolls around STV. There are several near the entrance to ZG and a few more near the Venture Company mine. I have guessed that they must factor into a horde quest, as I've never leveled a horde toon through STV. And nothing I have read on Wowwikki, etc has lead me to an answer.

Oct 30th 2008 2:46PM Horrible idea. Just imagine the bickering to fill the forums. Mages and warlocks, Fury warriors and rogues. It's going to be a mess.
If anything Blizz needs to make the current forums more useful, and actually "tag" your threads. Spec, Encounters, General Discussion, etc. So if I want to discuss specs on my rogue I can go to the rogue forum and choose "specs" and see all threads created that the OP tagged as "specs." That will reduce the clutter, and make up for the horrible Blizz forum search engine.
The role forums aren't a horrible idea, in theory, but in practice is a different story, and removing class forums is the absolute dumbest thing Blizz could do. The only way role forums would work is extremely heavy moderation, which we have seen said many times Blizz does not dedicate resources to.
Oh well, we will always have Elitist Jerks.
