I like the new trailer. Almost all story, very little raid preview.

If anyone needed any more of a reason to want to smash Hellscream's face into an unrecognizable mess.. this trailer sealed the deal.

Isn't that just further evidence Blizzard can't make compelling content any longer?

Meh. Blizzard would announce the Second Coming, they'd still be smashed because it would be "meh, another goody-two-shoes story. Boring Blizz!"
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

No. It's evidence that they do very good story cinematics. Clips of testers running the raid are boring. (There was too much "players raiding" in the Throne of Thunder trailer.)

Can you tell us where the Dark Shaman cosmetic gear that was recently added to the PTR comes from?
Yes, it comes from Flex, Normal, and Heroic raids. It can drop off of pretty much anything there and it is purely a cosmetic item for Shamans. It is just supposed to be a cool bonus.

Sigh, I wish they would stop trying to make me raid something that's not LFR. I'm already sick to death of LFR. I really, really want to raid Flex, you don't have to push me anymore.

I just got no clue where I'm going to find a raid group that doesn't require me to dedicate one or more evenings to raiding every week :(

Do you need to find a raid group? I could imagine flex groups forming fairly regularly without to much organization.

I imagine our guild runs will just grab a few people from trade.

This is awesome! I was so worried it would be a Blizzard Store set.

Cliched naff dialogue aside, that's a really good trailer. I hope the raid lives up to it.

The reason paladins are so high is borked scaling. Too weak at low or no vengeance but OP at high veng. Examine.
We don't really see them weak at low V and only a problem in "I'll tank it all mode" which should be fixed now.

I really have my doubts on this. Paging Dr. Theck!

I mean, the other tanks scale better with gear because more of their abilities scale with weapon damage, but paladins scale almost exclusively from AP, 'cept for CS and HotR, which hits like wet noddles to begin with.

Also, this one made me lol
Again we hear that EF doesn't fit the style you want for holy without saying what style you want. Help?
EF is fine to use. If every paladin uses it, it is no longer fine.


Couldn't that be said about Sacred Shield and protection paladin, and the reason why they considered making it baseline?
