Razorgore was much easier as Prot than Ret: I took quite a hammering from the trash and I think SoI drew more aggro off them (could have tried SoI as Ret, I guess); plus I like Prot's AOE better than Rets. However, the boss after him was the opposite: not enough dps as Prot; even as Ret popping everything I still died from the DOT but at least he died first. I've never got past Razor before - what an annoying instance to solo! You have two potential corpse run bosses to start, then two halls full of irritating trash that you are slowed throughout. Still I am going to farm the heck out of it for T2.

You need to do 50 melee attacks within a few seconds (though I think it has been nerfed now). When you get there use snake trap and pop Stampede to get as many attacks on him as possible. Think you can go up and melee hit him too. I know hunters could solo him before the patch and they only made it easier now. DKs can also solo with army of the dead I believe.

How did hunters deal frost damage to freeze him?

I haven't read backwards more than a page or so... but I thought there were two new reps coming in 5.1? I've got Operation: Shieldwall dealt with... where's the other one?

Shieldwall is the alliance one, Offensive is the horde one.

Brunnhildar Bow would probably do it.

Oh. I thought it was two total that I could do. Not one for each faction. Ah well, that clears that up!

The melee attacks to Shatter part has not been touched. The only thing that has been touched is the number of Frost attacks.

Essentially, the change made it easier for people to get through the part that was always easy and didn't touch the actual part that made it impossible for some specs.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Yeah... I never had much issue with the frost side of things (hooray for Mind Spike!) but there is no way I'll ever manage 50 melee hits for the shatter as a spriest.

Which is really annoying for me - I need 3 flasks for a raid, and barring having GL from farming (either way) I could previously simply make sure I farmed up motes for 1 SoH per raid - no more.. now I need 2 SoH per raid, and 1 SoH for the next one, so I need 4.5 SoH per week instead of 3, just to make sure I have flasks (I actually farm enigma seeds on my herber to also supply my scribe), taking it from 2 days on my farm to 3 days on my farm per week.
