Already have all the arch stuff upgraded, but the trinket is "stuck" on my DK currently, but making a dragonling would be a good idea.

You have no idea how happy this makes me right now.

It's beautiful!

.... what is it?

(Probably funnier to me than most - this is what my High School metal shop teacher used to say to students when they showed him their work)

Ony mount, right?

Got my DK alt through all the LFRs. HoF part 2 was hairy at first - two wipes and then almost everyone left, only two tanks, one healer and a few dps left. I started to think my DK could not tank. Luckily it was not too ungoldly an hour, so we were quickly replenished and then we one shot every other boss.

ToES was pretty lively too (although I find that even on my tankadin main - the Tsulong and Lei Shi magic damage swops in LFR can be tense). I absolutely love DK tanking - it feels so much more engaging than paladin tanking - but it also seems much more frightening to raid in. It's like raiding as a healer - your health keeps dropping and you have to heal yourself back up. Whereas with a shield tank, you feel like you are shrugging off the blows.

I was rewarded with the Sha weapon for my endeavours, although averaging only 471 ilevel, I can't see hitting 480 before the patch. I guess I will have to buy some more 496 shieldwall stuff after the patch when it is discounted, unless the new VP "consolation" gear GC mentioned providing to non-raiders is more attractive.

Blizzard announced a 5% damage buff to SPs!

It's not really enough, but it's already an improvement from not being considered at all :P

May be worth going for the higher ilevel Neutral rep valor gear from Shado-Pan Assault. (The non-raider gear is at Revered on the new faction, again, and only ilevel 496.)

Actually only a 4% buff (a 5 percentpoint buff) (1.2/1.25 = .96 or 1.25/1.2 = 1.04(1666...))

But that with the buffs to single spells should be good enough currently.

Also, yay for MM buffs, not sure SV needed them, though it could be prudent (from a design standpoint) to not have the 50/50 dps split spec be the top spec, when tuning raid encounters, and have the more hunterfocused spec be at least as good. (Though honestly I don't think SV really needed a buff, though it was lower than BM it was within the margin, MM did need a buff though)

You keep saying that, but unless raidbots is completely broken, which is completely possible since the two options are Top 100 and everyone, it simply isn't the case that shadow is not competitive especially when compared to some other specs, like all specs of hunter.

Did they completely nuke the 476s for gold? Wont get you to 480 but might help.

4% is a decent buff. There really aren't any specs that are so far out of line that more than that would be warranted. Player perspective exaggerates the differences.

Well that looks much better than a couple ptr-patches before.

Yeah. Live SPriest is showing consistently middle of the pack among casters on overall, and 3rd best caster on the top 100. And on the overall chart Warlocks and Arcane seem to be something of an outlier.

Noticed that in the 2 tries we had... I was supposed to kite, but he targetted 2 diffrent random players twice :( I think its just a matter of getting the chaos down to a manageable level and kill him after that ^^

Garalon throw the debuff at the first player to hit him, if memory serves. I'd suggest timing the pull yourself and slapping people that get the debuff first on the wrist.
