If you don't kill ZG bosses, their trash can be force-reset by just resetting all instances.

Also, apparently you can transfer the majority of the hojillion buttons swarming your minimap to titanpanel.

Who knew?

I'm not too sure what happenes to a full cleared instance, but I can tell you that even if you kill a boss, it's trash will respawn all the same.

I've done a run a few days ago where first I went in with some friends to do only raptor and tiger, then I went back the day after and everything had respwaned, so if you want to kill any of the bosses for any reason (paragon, mounts) and then go back, you can.

I believe if you kill a boss, you have to wait for a soft reset for the associated trash to respawn. Granted that's only 30 minutes.

I just found out you can link your raid lockouts in chat. When someone links it you can see what bosses they have downed and whether you are eligible to join the same raid. I had no idea you could do that (I assume just since 4.0).

I was talking with someone about needing to make some flares for tomorrow's (tonight's) raid last night. He said "why don't you just use the in-game markers?"

.....!

Apparently since I use Pitbull and Grid for my unit frames, I've had the new features hidden. For anyone else that missed it, you can now mark up to 5 different colored smoke flares with in a raid (don't know the duration). It's ridiculous how excited I am to use these tonight.

Yeah, it's pretty good. They key when you're using a unit frame mod is to not disable the default frames through the mod, but to use the "hide" option in the Blizzard raid menu.

Engineering gets the nerf again.

Next patch, Jepetto Joybuzz now sells Mechanical Squirrel Box, Mechanical Bombling, and Lil' Smoky. Tranquil Mechanical Yeti, and Lifelike Mechanical Toad were badly burned by the cataclysm and can no longer be summoned. Unlearned Yeti and Toad items are now vendor junk.

Eh, whatever. It's just a game.

Salty is right. Yeesh.

One nice thing about the in-game flares is they last longer than traditional flares, and have an enormous range. One bad thing is you're limited to one of each color. Also, blue flares!

Yay necro !

I just found out that there have been new health potions with cata, just that they don't drop on mobs.

All this time I still had the LK potions in my bag. (which I never used since they're so small compared to our health pool)

Did they increase the Crystallized Firestone drop rate recently ?
The last couple of weeks we had 4 of them per full clear, when before that we were lucky to have even one.

I didn't saw nothing on any note...
But our average was at the most 1 per run, and Wendsday we had two drop on the same boss... And another on the next boss..
Might be a glytch in the matrix... but it would be nice...

The droprate was officially increased a few mini patches ago (i think with the nerf one?), when people went from not seeing one drop for 7-8 reset, to getting 2-4 per clear, but that's about it.

0-1 per clear is what we had after the fix that actually let them drop.
Maybe we'd just been very unlucky with that for the last 3 months, but it's weird.

We also got more than usual last night, 2 firestones on 4 bosses. But random loot is random, you'd need a lot more examples to suggest it's actually changed.

We went from 2 patterns over the first several weeks when they dropped like candy, to 0 patterns since they decreased the drop rate :D

The last two weeks we've had 2 stones per clear; we had 8 stones over the course of the previous 15.
