In the control schemes, yes. Your first priority is hit cap and expertise hard cap.

Similarly with Treck's character:
http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/eu/t ... er/treckie

I used the control/haste scheme for him, and apart from the missing cloak enchant, it's just transferring one dodge->exp reforge to dodge->hit, since he's below both caps and hit is more valuable.

<edit> actually, that's sort of weird - it should be replacing all of his haste/stam gems with hit/stam gems. If I do that manually, it gives me a higher score (and lets him reach hit cap, of course). But I know the algorithm has still been having trouble with haste vs. hit, even on my character. I generally just force it to use hit/stam, exp/stam, and stam gems in yellow, red, and blue sockets respectively, and let it optimize reforges around that.

Yeah, I had a double take when I remembered about them. The same goes for the Golden Lotus. On balance, however, I'll leave them be. Both factions dailies are seriously grindy and time consuming. And while rings are nice, they are not make or break for me, unlike a big ticket item like a helm. I'm now working on AC and SP, which seem lighter touch dailies. I may return to Klaxxi/GL when I hit revered on SP - I may need the VPs, I fear. (30 VPs for a heroic seems just punitive.)

No, actually not, Hit is still blue.
Hit used to be yellow, but for some reason hit/sta gems are still green, even if it "should" be blue/blue :P

Maybe that's why I couldn't recall a pure yellow hit! Definitely strange but helpful none the less.

Hmm I have to change my BM guide on gemming then... Oh wait, hit/agi is purple (like it should be), I was thinking exp/agi, which are both red.

That isn't kosher on a PVE server, but Alterac Mountains is PVP. killing the other faction is fair play here, and half the fun :P

I'm a little behind on this thread, and maybe someone mentioned this already, but it wasn't alliance killing horde to gain control of Galleon... it was horde using Earth Elemental totems to taunt (not Rockbiter, as apparently that doesn't work according to the thread's comments) to steal the boss away (resetting it, then aoeing the spawn point) from other horde players.

As for the BMAH, that's also not kosher, since it was again, horde vs horde. If someone kills (alliance vs horde) you while you try to talk to the auctioneer or get to the mailbox, that's an entirely different scenario.

Damn rep system. I like running dungeons and I like playing Farmville, err, doing Tillers dailies, and they both reward me valor and justice.

But the only rep I got is Klaxxi honored and Shado-Pan friendly from questing in Townlong and Dread Wastes by levelling, so the only way I can spend the points is...to buy honor. Sigh.

I'm already spending too much time on the Tillers, time I could spend in dungeons. No way am I doing more dailies. Guess it's gearing by drops for me. With RNG.

Wrath Gems: Regal = STA/Dodge, Nothing was Nimble (dodge red,hit yellow)
Cata Gems: Regal = STA/Dodge, Nimble = Hit/Dodge (dodge yellow,hit blue)
Mop Gems: Regal = STA/Dodge, Nimble = STA/Hit


Part of me wants to believe it is on purpose we have a STA/Hit gem, but there is the possibility it is a mistake.

I was under the impression that the dailies awarded valor, not justice.

I'm at a loss where to get all the justice points to buy the 458 gear so I can get into heroics. It looks like the only way to not do the rep grind and gear up is via crafted 450 gear, or maybe finishing all the quests in Dreaded Wastes for the 437 quest gear, plus some 440 blues and a few 450 dungeon pieces.

There are only 2 iLv 450 plate tanking dungeon drops (one of which is a trinket) from only 1 regular level 90 dungeon.

I must admit I don't understand how people got geared up so quickly in the first week without crafted gear. Where do people get all their justice points from?

To get into heroics, you buy crafted pvp gear. It's ilvl 450, and with the way pvp gear works now it's equivalent to pve gear with added free resilience and pvp power, so it beats anything from quests. It's more than enough to reach the minimum ilvl, and it's also more than enough to trivialize the content. You get some crit rating, but that can be reforged.

Alternatively you can buy Mastercrafted Spiritguard gear, if you want avoidance.

jp gear doesnt require rep anymore... and since there wasnt a jp reset, if you had 4000 at the end of cata, you still have those 4000 jp when you turn in 90

I haven't spent a single justice point this expansion. I'm sitting at the 4k cap and it's certainly not being used on anything. I also didn't use crafted gear either. If you didn't do Dread Wastes (all of the zone), you're at a severe disadvantage gearwise for getting into heroics. As it was, I left Dread Wastes well over the ilevel requirement for heroics.

There's 450 pieces for 3-4 slots from dread wastes quest chains.

Or you could just do Townlong Steppes and Dread Wastes from 88-90 and have an ilevel high enough to go straight into heroics without buying a single thing.

Ah, I've always only moved into a new zone after getting the quest achievement for a zone, and this way I always ding 90 after Kun-Lai Summit. Never touched anything in Townlong Steppes, too. Then I suppose I got tied up trying to expand my farm asap. Haha.

Which reminds me. My alt druid got 0 experience from Krasarang Wilds because a GM didn't pay attention while doing his/her work. It's a long story:

One pally guildie questioned about where his Plate Specialization went to. So I checked and found that I no longer have it either. I logged into my druid and sure enough, the druid has Leather Specialization. So I contacted the GM.

Initially the GM said that all armor specialization have been folded into the Armor skill, and nobody has the specialization skill for each class of armor anymore. I pointed out that my druid still has it, so the GM logged into my druid to check. A while later, he/she said they'll report this to Blizzard US (I play on the Taiwan realms).

It was at that point my druid bugged and could no longer receive experience from anything. I think I had just finished the Four Winds and was moving into Krasarang. But I didn't notice the problem untill at the end of Krasarang, I started feeling odd that level 87 took so long. Then I noticed the problem.

Petitioning the GM in-game and on battle.net both resulted in the response that "the GM in question acted according to the rules of the game and user agreement, hence we cannot compensate you".

There you go, probably about 18,000,000 experience gone, just because one GM was careless when he/she handled my account.

Lesson learned. Never trust a GM again, ever.

My monk left Townlong after killing the Sha there, and dinged 90 about halfway through Dread Wastes. Buying a complete set of Contender's gear was a clear upgrade (and the Monk staff and Brewfest trinkets helped too of course - I think the healers were annoyed when I grinded those as an 89 tank!).

I've tanked several heroics now in that gear with no issues, so I wouldn't say I gimped myself by not finishing the zones. But the path to LFR and (most importantly) Challenge Modes looks to be harder.

I have done about a thousand dailies so far this expansion. It takes me about three hours every day to get them done on my paladin (prot spec, as my os is holy) and it's tedious and painstaking but I persevere. So when I leveled my shaman up to 90, the last thing I wanted to do was more dailies. However, I wanted those leatherworking leg armor thingies from Golden Lotus so I decided I might as well start in on them. I was just finishing up my dailies when all of a sudden the dailies reset and my quest log was filled with:
