The fact that many WoW players will point at MC, when inquired about Classic raiding, has amused me for years. But it gets so much juicier when an insider falls to the very same temptation. :P

Sure, MC (and ZG, later on) were iconic to Classic. In the same way that KZ was iconic to TBC. However, "iconic" doesn't necessarily correlate with "best examples of the raiding scene". Things heated up in t2+, respectively in t5+ (to be fair, pre-2.1 Gruul/Magtheridon too).

But hey, the whole Classic was _insert qualitative term here_ because there wasn't much going on in one of the very first raids to ever ship in WoW. Lemme wipe those tears of happiness.

Something stirred in the corner of my eye.. I looked up, and there was the blackest spec up against the sun, but it was coming closer, rapidly.. soon more appeared, many many more. I could hear the screeches (and odd ca-ching sounds) as they drew closer. Soon it was apparent that a new plague was upon us. One that would last for months.. I quickly sought refuge in an area where even these new bloodthirsty beasts could not take to the air, and fill the sky...

Armoured Bloodwing mount now available from the Blizz store for $25. Yikes. I'd only consider it at all if I played horde primarily, which I don't, and even then, $25 is a lot for pixels.

I wonder how many we'll see in the Vale tonight.. :lol:

Nice looking mount, but there's no prestige in paying 25 bucks for a fancy ride in WoW to me.

Ugly as it is, I'm farming mimiron's head because I think there's only a handful on my server. Contrast that to something like Ashes which literally every single person idling in dalaran has (thanks Xrealm).

For now though I'm just gonna keep rocking my anzu + drake of the something wind combo.

I adapt the mount to the character. That mount looks very hot for my warrior.

It's not the only review that viciously tears apart AE, and boy it does deserves it.

I just, in LFR, got called names and a nerd and social inept for having told people "if you have no clue of where you go at durumu, follow my mark". Apparently I had a "condescending tone" and was behaving like a jerk.

the funniest part of this is basically every durumu run I've been in, someone asks for someone who knows where they are going to please mark themselves, or someone says the same thing... and far fewer folks die thanks to it.
