This all makes me so sad. I REALLY hate what they are doing with Jaina, the single pillar of reason and peace and their flushing years of her character development down the drain to make her "Badass". Boo.

Ok, so from what I heard, Anduin does not die. Garrosh nearly does kill him, but Vol'jin manages to get Anduin out of there.

I'm gonna have to get Vol'jin's voice clip, if there is one.

Lor'theromar also said he considering getting some old alliences set back up due to whats going on.
You look happy, I can change that if you want.

Somehow, I doubt Blizzard forcibly turning one of the main "hubs" of the game into a strictly Alliance settlement will go over well...

Hmm, I think that it's either won't really happen or Horde will get their own camp set up in Crystalsong somewhere.

Or Dalaran will be gone from there entirely and both sides will have new settlements for the sake of levellers.

As an alliance player, this pleases me greatly. I like the Trolls, because of Vol'Jin, but other than that they can go rot.

maaaaaaybe moocows are ok, but still.

@Jaina, it's sad she's being broken, but still, totally justified and I really want her to kick as much ass in her Roaring Rampage of Revenge as possible.

Remember that whenever you go into Northrend, you are going into the past. The Dalaran that's in Northrend is the one lead by Rhonin, not the one lead by Jaina.

As such, the Dalaran in game will not change unless Blizz decides to update Northrend.


Dataminers have come across the 5.1 Wrathion questline. Notably it looks like much of the questline after revered seems to be Warlock only. Hopefully we get some sort of update on it.

Jaina officially leads Dalaran? When did that happen? surprised (yeah, some novels, probably)

I suspect that it's not warlock only, but rather class-specific and warlocks are just the only ones already in.

I hope that's true. Vol'jin has always been one of my favorite faction leaders.

[up][up]Don't you remember that Wrathions quests were Rogue only last time.

Well that was a legendary thing. So unless Warlocks are getting a class-specific legendary next patch...

[up]Well just from the thing that was written and the fact that Wrathion is giving the quests its would not suprise me that Wrathion is giving Warlocks legendary's

I ran my first LFR this weekend. First off, am I right in thinking that only the first half of Mogu'shan Vaults is open for LFR this week? Even after beating it, the second half wasn't available.

Second, the second boss is rough on raids. First and third are easymode, but that second guy puts a ton of stress on the healers when people don't do what they are supposed to. Plus the whole "one numbskull wiping the raid" issue in phase 3.

Third, I ran it a second time with my guildmates who had just qualified by ilvl and the game taunted me with a loot roll I couldn't have because I had already had a chance at loot from the boss. What the hell, Blizzard?

Oh, and I bit the bullet and bought a Grand Expedition Yak. First in our guild, I think, and I spent just over half my gold on it. Oh, well, what else was I saving it for?

Yeah i can't run the second half either, and yes the second boss is the hradest

first one I didn't even realize till halfway though it WAS a boss fight, thought it was just some epic trash, third is only rough if no one goes into the spirit realm and kills the adds.

Second, yeah seemed a bit to tightly tuned for LFR.

I rocketed to the top of the damage meters on the third boss after I popped into the spirit realm for a while. Super fun! I hear that on normal mode, you have to be healed to full before the timer is up or you die. I'm looking forward to it.

Good. I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl. I easily capped Valor this week from all the daily quests and dungeon runs, with LFR as the icing; it'll be interesting to see how quickly I can cap it next week. I also have been getting way more Lesser Charms of Good Fortune than I can possibly turn in on a weekly basis.

I should hit Exalted with the Order of the Celestial Dragon tonight, so that'll be one set of daily quests I can skip from now on unless I want to farm achievements.

Question: I plan on two or three manning Tempest Keep for Transmog gear tonight. What classes would you recommend for Tank and Heals? (I'm an 85 Arcane Mage DPS)

It doesn't matter. I've heard of people soloing TK, so three-manning it should be cake. The only things I can think of that might be problematic are running to the various platforms with Al'ar, dealing with Void Reaver's threat dump, and handling Kael'thas' AoE confusion attack.

I can go Invisible if I get aggro and any Healer worth their salt will a similar coping strategy. Isn't there a weapon in the Raid that can break the Mind Control?

You can equip the Legendary weapons, yes. It makes you quite a bit weaker with the loss of stats, but I suppose that can be seen as an acceptable tradeoff. And not all healers have threat dumps, FYI. In fact, none of them do. Many healers can temporarily reduce threat but it's by no means a permanent solution. However, I'm pretty sure it's possible to DPS down Void Reaver before you have to worry about it.

>dealing with Void Reaver's threat dump

You deal with it by standing there and letting him hit you in the face with wet noodle or running around if you're feeling energetic.
Seriously, just kill the guy.

The thing you need to be afraid of is Kael's mind control thing.
The only heal class with ability to remove it is Shaman. Any tank class will do. Mage can't.
So you grab the staff and activate it (thus saying goodbye to confusion), tank takes the knife and has to stab you (don't forget to reactivate the staff) and the healer with any melee attack when the control goes down.
For everything else, just burn.

Oh, and the chick in the right wing can make you blow up your group so you kinda have to run away when you're the bomb.
Or you know, laugh at the two corpses and kill her solo, whatever.

Clearly Fighteer forgot the existence of the shaman class, which has one threat dump (Wind Shear) and can talent another (Nature's Guardian). And before you ask, no, those are not temporary either. Shaman get all the cool toys. tongue

Meh, WS is a rather meager thread dump IIRC.

Yeah, it's permanent, but it's just a tiny bit of threat. If a healer got aggro, it means that everybody else dropped straight to zero and WS not gonna help.

As a Night Elf (Priest or Druid) I can also use Shadowmeld to temporarily drop threat. And there's the hilarious, never-gets-old joke about shifting to Cat Form and using Cower. (Did they finally drop Cower this xpack? I think so, at least for non-Ferals.)

On the other hand, with the new talents, a Druid healer can use Heart of the Wild to become a fairly impressive tank for a short period of time — this only works for those who've gotten to level 90, however.
