Dec 22nd 2008 11:54AM Thats odd, because I read "from Bungie" its a two sided map with an obstacle in the middle that is only safe to traverse after pushing a button to activate a bridge or something.
Also, while not certain, its possible if you look at those monitors, one of them has a map on it. Could be the map for Orbital, could be complete crap.

Oct 28th 2007 2:46AM This is just a mishap. This stuff has been happening for years.
I recall back around patch 1.9, our guilds MT was helping people with their Ony keys, and when he stepped inside UBRS, he wasn't in our instance. He was actually in a group of 10 alliance. They kept him around as long as they could, until he accidentally bit the dust during the AoE pulls.
Oct 10th 2007 8:29AM Notice the game has been delayed to TBD, so no, it wont be rolling into us in December. D:
Check the site, its release date was updated.

Name me one pair of sequential bosses that requires the mage to respec between the two.
Oh wait... you can't... because it doesn't exist.
Sep 3rd 2007 5:24PM Blizzard did take a step in the right direction though.
Pre-BC all raids had a Theme. MC was Fire immune and needed Fire Resistance. AQ was the same with Nature. Naxx was half Nature half Frost.
Post-BC, we don't have entire instances dedicated to a certain school of magic, but rather a single boss.
The only resistance fight in SSC is Hydross, who is Half Frost, Half Nature (depending on the phase), there are no other bosses in there that are immune to frost.
The Eye is similar. Al'ar is immune to Fire, but thats the only boss in there like that. Void Reaver, Astroglider, and Kael are all normal.
I havent' experienced it myself, but I understand Black Temple is the same, 1 single Shadow Resistance fight (Mother Shazzrah I think).
I would much prefer these than entire instances dedicated to 1 specific school.
And in the future, we'll likely see something similar.
The Nexus, considering its held with Blue Dragons, is likely to have something related to Arcane themes. I'd bet anything with the Nerubians will be based around Nature. And its probably a given that some of Arthas' Liches will be Frost immune.
Now, some people will debate that it seems worthless getting an entire resistance set for a single boss, when you used to get the set for an entire instance.
I think the biggest point though, is that its nice that we don't have to have our Tier sets dedicated to a specific resistance, as they were pre-BC.
Sep 3rd 2007 1:10AM The paladin Bubble that we can cast on others only makes the target immune to physical dmg, and thus, is worthless vs Casters.
Also, anyone with Blessing of Protection on them, cannot use melee oriented attacks, so you'd hardly ever want to put it on a Warrior, Rogue, Hunter, or Feral Druid.

Jun 29th 2007 12:27AM You guys should really just rename the site to Blizz Insider.
No offense. :P
